This is a monthly meme of mine that I made up! :) It's similar to my "Waiting on Wednesday" posts, but highlights many books, not just one, and doesn't include summaries. Here's a list of young adult books that are still in-the-making or will be published in the future. These can range from being released tomorrow, to two years from now! The covers and release dates might not be permanent, it's just what I saw on Amazon, Goodreads, or the author's website. Hope this will be efficient to expand your reading pile! All of the titles are linked to their Goodreads' pages so you can add them to your TBR shelf. :)
Fix Me by Rune Michaels (December 6, 2011): Orphaned as a child, terrorized by her abusive brother, and haunted by memories, Leia feels exposed, powerless, and vulnerable. When her tormented mind can stand it no longer, she escapes to the zoo, where she finds shelter and seeks refuge.
Legend by Marie Lu (November 29, 2011): Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
Fracture by Megan Miranda (January 17, 2012): Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?
Illuminated by Erica Orloff (December 8, 2011): Some loves are not made to last.

The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Macker (November 21, 2011): It's 1996, and less than half of all American high school students have ever used the Internet.

Don't Breathe A Word by Holly Cupala (January 3, 2012): Set against the gritty backdrop of Seattle’s streets and a cast of characters with secrets of their own, Holly Cupala’s powerful new novel explores the hurt of bullying, the meaning of family, and how far a girl will go to discover her own strength.
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood (February 7, 2012): Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.
Under the Influence by Lynda Sandoval (December 20, 2011): For the first time, Alyssa has to decide whether to follow everyone else’s rules and remain in her perfect bubble, or rebel and abide by the rules of her heart.
