What YA books will you be reading in August?

Of all the exciting new YA releases coming this August, top of the list for me has to be A Torch Against the Night, the much anticipated follow up Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes. The wait is almost over: roll on 30 August!! The Thousandth Floor sounds really intriguing, and The Gilded Cage, about a girl who moves from a farm in Virginia to live with an eccentric upper class family in England sounds right up my street. Nevernight sounds like a new fantasy series I could really get into!

What’s on your YA radar in September?

The bank holiday might have been a wash out, but September is shaping up to be hot, hot, hot when it comes to new YA releases. Here is just a small selection of the delights coming up this month (click on each title to link up to Goodreads). A major highlight has got to be Louise O’Neill’s Asking For It, and Sarah J. Maas fans are bound to be chomping at the bit for the next instalment in the Throne of Glass series, Queen of Shadows. I’ve got ARCs of The Tattooed Heart and Monsters – I’m looking forward to both of those!

Happy reading everyone! What’s on your YA radar this September?

What’s on your radar in May 2014?

May is a favourite month of mine – summer is just around the corner and with the sun shining it suddenly doesn’t seem such a chore getting up in the morning (well, the noisy seagulls help with that too!). And if you’re a YA fiction reader it’s about to get better – just look at some of the awesome books coming out this month!

I’ve already got my copy of Raging Star (Dustlands#3)  paperback and will be consuming it hungrily over the bank holiday weekend (that’s if it lasts that long!). How long have I waited to find out what happens to Saba next?? Too long! Other big name titles releasing this month are  Dangerous Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl, the first in a new series set in the Beautiful Creatures world, and (!!) City of Heavenly Fire, the sixth book in Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series. Oh, and what else? The cover of The One (Selection#3) by Kiera Cass is making me want to check out the series and I’m super excited to hear that Anna Godbersen, one of my fave YA authors, is launching a new book – The Blonde looks a bit different from her other books but I’m intrigued by this biography/thriller/love story about Marilyn Monroe. And some fab looking standalones are coming  too! Check out all the pretty covers below…
