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!
Lost Voices by Sarah Porter (July 4, 2011): A captivating and wildly original tale about finding a voice, the healing power of friendship, and the strength it takes to forgive.
Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore (July 12, 2011): Amy Goodnight's family is far from normal. Bodies are being discovered, a ghost is on the prowl, and everywhere she turns, the hot neighbor cowboy is in her face.
And Then Things Fall Apart by Arlaina Tibensky (July 26, 2011): Keek—whose snappy narrative voice is darkly humorous and hysterically blunt—must ultimately decide for herself which relationships to salvage, which to set free, and what it means to fall in love.
Misfit by Jon Skovron (August 1, 2011): Steeped in mythology, this is an epic tale of a heroine who balances old world with new, science with magic, and the terrifying depths of the underworld with the ordinary halls of high school.
Falling for Hamlet by Michelle Ray (July 5, 2011): Passion, romance, drama, humor, and tragedy intertwine in this compulsively readable debut novel, told by a strong-willed, modern-day Ophelia.
Sweetly by Jackson Pearce (August 23, 2011): Twelve years ago, Gretchen, her twin sister, and her brother went looking for a witch in the forest. They found something. Maybe it was a witch, maybe a monster, they aren’t sure—they were running too fast to tell. Either way, Gretchen’s twin sister was never seen again.
Dreams of Significant Girls by Cristina Garcia (July 12, 2011): Brought together each summer at a boarding school in Switzerland, three girls learn a lot more than just French and European culture.
The Cupid War by Timothy Carter (August 8, 2011): Ricky Fallon had decided against killing himself — just before slipping off a bridge to his death. Now he's a Cupid in the afterlife, helping people fall in love.
Fury by Elizabeth Miles (August 30, 2011): The first book in a paranormal teen trilogy featuring three beautiful, mysterious girls wreaking havoc on a small New England town.
Looking forward to lots of these, too! Especially Sweetly and Texas Gothic!ReplyDelete
