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!
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys (March 22, 2011): Lina is just like any other fifteen-year-old Lithuanian girl in 1941. Until one night when Soviet officers barge into her home, tearing her family from the comfortable life they've known.
Blood & Flowers by Penny Blubaugh (March 1, 2011): Persia ran away from her drug-addict parents and found a home with the Outlaws, an underground theater troupe.
Huntress by Malinda Lo (April 5, 2011): Nature is out of balance in the human world. The sun hasn't shone in years, and crops are failing. Worse yet, strange and hostile creatures have begun to appear.
The FitzOsbornes in Exile by Michelle Cooper (April 5, 2011): Michelle Cooper combines the drama of pre-War Europe with the romance of debutante balls and gives us another compelling historical page turner.
Born at Midnight by C. C. Hunter (March 29, 2011): Kylie's mother ships her off to Shadow Falls—a camp for troubled teens. Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side—learning to harness their powers, control their magic and live in the normal world.
Playing Hurt by Holly Schindler (March 8, 2011): Star basketball player Chelsea had the promise of a full ride to college—and everyone's admiration back home. Then she took a horrible fall during senior year. Now a metal plate holds her together and she feels like a stranger in her own family.
Back When You Were Easier to Love by Emily Wing Smith (April 28, 2011): What's worse than getting dumped? Not even knowing if you've been dumped. Joy needs closure almost as much as she needs Zan, so she heads for California and Zan, riding shotgun beside Zan's former-best-friend Noah.
The Betrayal of Maggie Blair by Elizabeth Laird (April 18, 2011): In seventeenth-century Scotland, saying the wrong thing can lead to banishment—or worse. Accused of being a witch, sixteen-year-old Maggie Blair is sentenced to be hanged. She escapes, but instead of finding shelter with her principled, patriotic uncle, she brings disaster to his door.
Clarity by Kim Harrington (March 1, 2011): Clarity "Clare" Fern sees things. Things no one else can see. Things like stolen kisses and long-buried secrets. All she has to do is touch a certain object, and the visions come to her. It's a gift. And a curse.
