Top five new book releases in September 2012 (fictions or novels)
We did a thorough research, browsed some magazines and websites, read a lot of books wherever available, and here is all we have. A list of top five upcoming book releases in September 2012 in fiction genre. Owing to the immense craze for the Harry Potter series all over the world, J. K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy is our editorial pick as the best book to release in September 2012. While we believe Rowling will lead the party, check out how others perform as well! Here you go, with the Geek Fundas editorial pick for top five new books in September 2012.
The Casual Vacancy, J. K. Rowling
With Rowling not writing for the children this time, The Casual Vacancy has created a lot of curiosity. Set in a small English town, J. K. Rowling's first adult novel portrays class tensions, between different age and economy classes of the locality. With an empty seat in the parish council, the tensions grow even deeper. So, what do you think? With a locale far from the Hogwarts, and a theme completely based on the lives of Muggles, how will Rowling be received by the reading folk? While only Time can answer these questions, J. K. Rowling's The Casual Vacancy will definitely be one of the most anticipated and most awaited upcoming books in September 2012.
This is How You Lose Her, Junot Diaz
A Dominican American writer, a Professor of Creative Writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and the Fiction Editor at Boston Review, Junot Diaz perhaps needs no introduction to the modern fiction lovers. The best selling author for Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao for which he was awarded with the Pulitzar Prize for Fiction in 2008, Diaz is now back to the fiction lovers with his collection of short stories, This is How You Lose Her. Set to release in September 2012, the plot of Junot Diaz's new book revolves around a Jersey raised writer of Dominican origin, finding love, being entangled in love triangles, and leaving the women. With the striking similarities between the protagonist and the author about their origin and livelihood, it will be interesting to see whether This is How You Lose Her turns out to be autobiographical in tone. We are keeping this book as second in the list of best five upcoming book releases in September 2012.
The Yellow Birds, Kevin Powers
Among the new book releases in September 2012, The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers is a big débutante. Kevin has himself served in the army for a long time. Thus, like the old war poets Wilfred Owen or Siegfried Sassoon, Kevin Powers reflects in his novel his first hand experience of the war. Kevin Powers' The Yellow Birds relives the Iraq War of 2005 and the protagonist of the novel is an American soldier fighting there. Most previews and blurbs are saying that this is going to be one of the best war novels of 21st century, and definitely one of the best books released in September 2012.
The Timekeeper, Mitch Albom
Do you remember Mitchel David Albom alias Mitch Albom, the best selling author of the non-fiction Tuesdays with Morrie in 1997? Nevertheless, despite the immense success of Tuesdays with Morrie, Albom switched over to fiction for his next couple of publications The Five People You Meet in Heaven and For One More Day. His last book, Have a Little Faith was once again a non-fiction. This time it's time for Mitch to write fiction again, but with a very thought provoking theme. The Timekeeper by Mitch Albom tells the story of Father Time in a wrapping of a fantastic fiction, and is bound to be one of the best new books released in September 2012.
NW, Zadie Smith
The winner of the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2006 for White Teeth, Zadie Smith is publishing her fourth novel in September 2012, named NW. Somewhat Dickensian in approach, Zadie Smith's new novel NW tells the story four Londoners, trying to find financial and social stability after a volatile, poverty-stricken childhood experience. In this book, we will see how they find their ways through some unknown places of London. One of the best five upcoming book releases in September 2012, we are eager to give it a read. Are you?
