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. :)
Envy by Gregg Olsen (August 23, 2011): Hayley and Taylor Ryan secretly use their wits and their telepathic “twin-sense” to uncover the truth about the town's victims and culprits. Based on the shocking true crime about cyber-bullying, Envy will take you to the edge - and push you right over.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (September 27, 2011): Karou sketches monsters that may or may not be real, speaks many languages (not all of them human), and has bright, blue (all natural) hair. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.
Going Underground by Susan Vaught (September 13, 2011): Basing her story on real-life cases of teens in trouble with the law for texting explicit photos, Susan Vaught has created a moving portrait of an immensely likable character caught in a highly controversial legal scenario.
Wildefire by Karsten Knight (July 26, 2011): Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life.
Hades by Alexandra Adornetto (August 30, 2011): The sequel to Halo (which I still haven't read!) and yet another beautiful, stunning cover.
The Beginning of After by Jennifer Castle (September 6, 2011): Laurel's world changes instantly when her parents and brother are killed in a terrible car accident. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Laurel navigates a new reality in which she and her best friend grow apart, boys may or may not be approaching her out of pity, and overpowering memories lurk everywhere.
A Plague Year by Edward Bloor (September 13, 2011): It's 2001 and zombies have taken over Tom's town. Meth zombies. The drug rips through Blackwater, PA, with a ferocity and a velocity that overwhelms everyone.
Shut Out by Kody Keplinger (September 5, 2011): A contemporary reimagining of the Greek play, "Lysistrata," in which high school senior Lissa decides it's time to end her school's ridiculous sports rivalry once and for all by starting a hook-up strike.
Shifting by Bethany Wiggins (September 27, 2011): Fitting in has never been Maggie's strong suit, but it's not for the reasons most people would expect - it all has to do with the deep secret that she is a shape shifter. Full of romance, mysticism, and intrigue, this dark take on Navajo legend will haunt readers to the final page.
I'm also looking forward to Shut Out, and also A Plague Year simply because I read Bloor's Tangerine and absolutely loved it.ReplyDelete
Mmm... The one I want the most is Daughters of Smoke and Bone. Shut Out, Wildfire and Going Underground look good, too.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for putting my book up there! :)ReplyDelete
Yay, Hades looks so beautiful. I still have to read Halo, but OMG, beautiful!ReplyDelete
Oh man! I can't wait for Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Looks amazing and I've never heard of Shifting, but it looks pretty freaking awesome.ReplyDelete
Envy looks seriously scary. Shifting too.ReplyDelete
These are seriously cool book covers!
