September Reads: Sky Jumpers: The Forbidden Flats, Michael Vey: Hunt for Jade Dragon, and The Watchers!

Autumn is my favorite season. The Earth axis tilts. The temperature cools down. The leaves change color. And there's pumpkin-flavored everything. It's also the start of Fall season for new book releases. This month, I'm seeing all kinds of fall colors in these book covers. And these are the titles that I'm excited about this September!

Sky Jumpers: The Forbidden Flats: by Peggy Eddleman

After Hope and her friend's first adventure, her town is threatened when an Earthquake causes the Bomb's Breath to sink closer to White Rock. It's up to Hope to travel across the Forbidden flats and the Breath's deadly descent.

I was privileged to be in Peggy's critique group while she was writing this. Post-apocalyptic adventure lovers, you won't be disappointed. Find it here!

Michael Vey: Hunt for Jade Dragon, by Richard Paul Evans

A child prodigy is being held captive in Taiwan, a girl that the Elgen hope they can use for world domination. It's up to Michael and the rest of the Electroclan to find her before it's too late.

I read the first Michael Vey and enjoyed it. Something tells me I need to pick up this series again. Richard was in a very interesting interview about this release. You can find a copy of this here!

The Watchers: Knight of Light, by Deirdra Eden

Accused of witchcraft, Auriella has fled her home. When the forces of darkness pursue her, Auriella must find the balance between magic and humanity -- to save herself and everyone.

I've been a long-time follower of Deirdra, and I looked forward to the day when I could check out her work. That day has come!

And yes, you can find it here!

Now that I suggested these books for your TBR lists, don't forget to see THE MAZE RUNNER this weekend. I'm seriously geeking out!

Did any of these books catch your attention? Which one would you pick up? Who's seeing The Maze Runner this weekend? 

I'm David, and "no matter how dark the night, the sun will rise ..."


  1. I love all of those covers. And all of those concepts! Why do you keep adding to my already huge TBR pile???

  2. The covers are really cool. No Maze Runner for me. I'll be on vacation.

  3. I'm loving all three of these books. Electroclan? Heck yeah!

    That book trailer was amazing.

  4. You make me wish i could spend all day and all night doing nothing but reading!

  5. Fall is totally my favorite time of year too (especially Halloween)! Now I have to check out Peggy's book as a result:)

  6. I've only started to love fall since I retired from teaching. I love the heat so I hope summer temps linger a bit longer. Those books look interesting but I don't want to add more to my TBR pile just yet.

  7. Can't wait to read Peggy's new book. And definitely want to see Maze Runner.

  8. I'd already have tickets for Maze Runner, but it opens on a night I already have a commitment. I'm hoping Monday night. :D

  9. I still haven't decided if I'm going to see Maze Runner in the theater. It takes a lot to get me to plunk down the cost of a newly released dvd for one sitting anymore.

    Great book spotlight.

  10. I'm going to TRY and get a copy of Peggy's new book next month. I read the first one off netgalley and gave it a sparkly review. This time I'd like to actually buy a copy. Also have your book in my sights for hopefully a November pre-order David. Thank God for TBD and buying while the books are cheap/cheaper before release day. Sadly The Watchers doesn't seem to be on TBD. Not feeling the book trailer but the reviews have me sort of sold. Sorry Michael Vey but I have to be selective about my book purchases right now. Still sounds like an amazing read though. Nice picks David, thanks for sharing. Especially since I had forgotten all about Peggy.

  11. I had no idea Richard Paul Evans had such a series! The other books sound interesting as well.

  12. I like pumpkin stuff, but I'll take summer over any other season.

  13. Thanks, DPK! You rock in so many ways.
