It’s that time of year again! People begin publishing lists of the best of the year, including books. Those are a little depressing – there’s still so much time left in the year and so much left to do! Luckily, other people begin publishing lists of what’s still to come in the year. Those are much more fun at this point – what else can I enjoy before the year is done!
This list in particular is fantastic: CNN: Top 40 Fall Young Adult Book Releases. Forty young adult book coming out between September to December of all different genres. I’ve read a few of them and I have to say, they’re fantastic.
Book Number Three, ‘I’ll Give You The Sun’ was beautiful. It had an interesting way of telling the story – two different story tellers – twins – telling of their lives several years in the difference. It came out September 16th and I’m already seeing it in a bunch of ‘Best of 2014’ discussions.
Book Number Four, ‘Get Even’ was interesting It seemed familiar in plot line but I liked how it dealt with the issue of bullying. At times it was far fetched but the determination and loyalty of friendship brought it back on track. When adding it to my goodreads page, I noticed it’s the first of a series, something that I’d hoped when I read it – it ended leaving me wanting more.
I’ve not read any of the others, but I am looking forward to them. ‘The Blood of Olympus’ is one that people in my house are waiting for anxiously. I’ve preordered book 26, ‘Althea and Oliver’ as well as book 30, ‘Mortal Gods’ and book 35, How it went down. ‘Blue Lily Lily Blue’, book 40, is one I can’t wait for. I’m confused about a few that aren’t there – ‘Blood of my Blood’ should have been there, as well as ‘Isla and the Happily Ever After’. But I am looking forward to the next few months of reading.
This list only goes up to the end of October – hopefully there are more releases so that when we get to the end of 2014 I have a huge list to choose from for favourite releases.
