Diversity! The cover alone tells you that, but the summary goes on to tell you how the protagonist doesn’t fit into any box and has to figure out who she is, which sounds interesting enough on its own, but I’ve also heard great things about Hannah Moskowitz, so I have tentatively high hopes for this story.
This is a historical mystery that’s apparently compared to L.A. Confidential (which I know nothing about, so the comparison is kind of lost on me); I’m not quite sure why, but I’m really, really excited for this book. Maybe it’s because I’ve been on a mystery kick, maybe it’s the cool cover, but I’m definitely intrigued.
I didn’t love The Winner’s Curse as much as some people, but I did still enjoy it a lot, and I’m definitely interested to see how this story is going to pick up from some of the cliffhangers of the first book. If you haven’t read the first book, you should definitely at least check it out.
A historical, creepy-sounding book from the really interesting Justine Larbalestier – I haven’t heard anything about this in the blogosphere, but I’m still excited for it, even though I barely remember the summary.
I know two things about this book: it involves a political family, which sounds like a really interesting premise; and it was recommended for fans of Huntley Fitzpatrick and Sarah Dessen. Um, that’s me, that’s totally me – and this book automatically went on my to-read shelf.
This is a historical story that is about two girls on the Oregon trail, if I remember correctly. I was never really interested in that time in history, so it’d be nice to read a little about that and see if it changes my mind.
This is a mystery, which means i’ts hard to know whether I’ll like it based on Paula Stokes’s fluffy and fun The Art of Lainey, but I like mystery and I’m definitely interested to see what else Stokes can create.
I don’t quite remember what this book is about, but I know it sounded intriguing. This author apparently has a series about vampires, but I’ve never read anything from her, so I’m definitely coming into this story blind.
This is a story about cyber-bullying, a difficult but important subject; I’m definitely interested to see how that all plays out. I’m pretty sure there’s more to the summary than cyber-bullying, but that’s the main thing I remember about this book.
This is the second book in a trilogy that began with Sea of Shadows, a fantasy story that had plenty of cruel cliffhangers that I need answers to now!
A story about a gay boy who’s already comfortable with his sexuality is a much-needed story, and I’ve heard plenty of people who are also excited for this debut, which has me even more interested in it.
I was introduced to the idea of intersex thanks to a character on MTV’s Faking It, but there’s still so much that I don’t know about it, so I definitely hope that this book does the subject justice.
Mother-daughter relationships can be quite interesting, but a book about a mother forcing her daughter to act as her revenge? That definitely has the potential to be a very interesting debut.
Courtney Summers’s books are known for packing quite a punch, so I’m both scared and interested to see what she comes up with next.
This book also had a comparison to Huntley Fitzpatrick, if I remember correctly, but it’s also about friendship, which is a topic I love reading about. Hopefully it tells an interesting story about friendship!
Another book from Amy Spalding, the author of The Reece Malcolm List, a book that I loved? With the promise of that, I can forgive the cover for not matching her first two books. This story involves a friendship between a girl and a boy, and whether they end up together or not at the end, I’m definitely happy for more friendship.
I thought How to Love from Katie Cotugno was a decent debut, so I’m really interested to see what she comes up with next. I can’t quite remember the premise of this book, but I think it might be about a relationship that’s 99 days long, so it might be similar to 500 Days (Of Summer), that movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, but I’m not totally sure.
Jessi Kirby has written some amazing books, but this premise alone sounds like the beginning of an intriguing story even without that authorial boost: a girl’s boyfriend dies and his heart is donated to another teenage boy, who she tracks down and starts to grow close to, despite her conflicted feelings about the whole thing.
Prisoner of Night and Fog was a very interesting look at a little told subject: the days of Hitler before WWII, as seen through the eyes of a girl who believes in him and his message. She had to go through a lot of turmoil to see that things aren’t quite as they seem, and I’m definitely interested to see how things are going for her after (minor spoiler) she fled Germany at the end of the first book.
