Hello everyone! I feel like it has been a while since I’ve done a post where I talk about the upcoming book releases that I’m particularly excited for..Even though I did write and post one last month, haha.
I don’t know about where you live, but where I live, the weather is finally cooling down. I’m also happy to report, that this summer I did not travel anywhere! Weehoo! I won’t take anymore time on this really bad intro. This months’ Publishings-that-I’m-Looking-Forward-to is kind of a long one, and I don’t want to make it any longer with the intro. So without a further ado, the books I’m looking forward to this October 2017!
Just One of the Boys by Leah Rooper, Kate Rooper — Teens & YA, Romance
Just One of the Boys legitimately sounds like a skating, high school version of the movie She’s the Man. Which I kind of enjoyed as a child, but having a skating — I love skating — version of She’s the Man is just…amazing. I want to read Just One of the Boys so badly now!!!!
We All Fall Down by Natalie D. Richards — Teens & YA
OK, so, I have a crush on Natalie D. Richards’ writing. I find their work to be incredibly convincing, and while I’ve only read a few books of theirs I just know that We All Fall Down will be a book not to miss.
27 Hours (The Nightside Saga, #1) by Tristina Wright — Teens & YA, Sci-Fi & Fantasy, LGBTQIA
Just by reading the synopsis of 27 Hours, I can already tell that there is going to be 4 different points of view. Which could be a very good thing, or a very bad thing. Apart from that, 27 Hours sounds incredibly interesting. In this book, the world has nights as long as 27 hours. There is so much that is already happening in the synopsis. The book is going to be one heck of a read.
Sparked by Helena Echlin, Malena Watrous — Teens & YA, Fantasy/Paranormal
Sparked is about Laurel Goodwin, who wakes up to find that her older sister Icy is missing from their Airstream trailer in the Oregon redwoods. Laurel has a reoccurring nightmare that tells Lauren that her sister Ivy was actually in fact abducted. But no one believes her. Not her mom, not the police. Yet when a new kid arrives in town, the two quickly become allies in the search for Ivy. As they get closer to finding out what happened to Ivy, Lauren discovers the quiet town they resides in holds a deep secret and is the epicentre of a dark prophecy. — I’m excited to see what the huh-bub is and what the towns’ secret actually is.
Select by Marit Weisenberg — YA Fantasy/ Sci-Fi, Romance
Select has an interesting story idea, and the cover is pretty. Two things that will for sure lead me into checking out this book.
Select seems to be a pretty predictable, and pretty stereotypical, but I want to try and read this book for the sake of reading this book. Who knows, though. Maybe Select will end up being one of those trashy book that are incredibly addicting to read.
Satellite by Nick Lake — YA Sci-Fi
Satellite just seems to be that book that I’m not too interested in to not read it. The main plot behind this book is that the main character, Leo, is finally of age and has the adequate strength he needs, to finally go home and live on Earth. While I’m not expecting too much from this book, I imagine that Satellite will be quite a creative look on how we humans live on Earth from Leo’s perspective.
The Devils You Know by M.C. Atwood — Teens & YA Horror
I’m almost chuckling at the fact that these five kids went off and separated from their class. But I’m intrigued to find out what happens to the characters and about the history of the Boulder House.
“Take a journey through Asia and beyond with twenty-three original thought-provoking and moving stories about identities, belonging, and choices—stories about where we come from and where we are going—each wrestling between ghostly pasts and uncertain future.”
Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercrott — Teens & YA Mystery
Gray Wolf Island seemts to be a book about trusting your friends with eh darkest of secrets. Something that I would have difficulty accomplishing. So I have no idea how 5 strangers are supposed to do so.
I’m interested in Gray Wolf Island since this books seems to be about coping with the loss of Ruby’s sister. And they only have a poem serving as their treasure map to guide Ruby (and 4 others) to the treasure that has been long rumoured to be located on Gray Wolf Island.
The Breathless by Tara Goedjen — Teens & YA Mystery
The Breathless, first off, has a beautiful cover. The synopsis though, is full of mystery. Like how Ro’s boyfriend knocked on her family’s door a year after Ro was found dead. And Ro’s boyfriend, Cage, has no memory of the past year. To Cage, yesterday Ro was alive.
The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan — Teens & YA, Fantasy, Horror
I’ve read a bit of the excerpt that was on Netgalley and let me tell you. I am so excited for The Hollow Girl. The story sounds like one of revenge, mixed in with magic! Which I am very pumped about. I don’t know much beyond that — I don’t want to get my hopes up!
The Treatment by C.L. Taylor — Teens & YA, Thriller
The Treatment seems like a book that will leave the reader on the edge with twists and turns scattered throughout the plot. As well as the element of danger that seems to be seeping through the book into the synopsis. Seriously, the synopsis seems to scream out “One wrong move, and you’ll be stuck here, too.”
Meant to Be by Julie Halpern — Teens & YA, Romance
Meant to Be seems like a truly interesting novel. The main premise behind MTB is when you reach the age of 18 you suddenly get a mark on your arm with the name of you MTB. I think that this is a pretty interesting thing to have happen to someone, so I want to know how the story goes. I also want to know why Agatha is hesitant to accept her MTB.
The Empress (The Diabolic, #2) by S.J. Kincaid — Teens & YA
You may or may-not know that I have read The Diabolic, which is the first book to The Empress. I loved it honestly. I enjoyed getting to know the characters — Nemesis especially — so I am so freaking happy that The Empress is going to be published at the end of October!! I wonder if The Empress is told going to be told in two points of view in this sequel since The Diabolic was in Nemesis’ point of view. If The Empress is told in two points of view, I wouldn’t mind per se….depending on the other pov.
