With the weather getting cooler and October break around the corner, I started thinking about all the things I’m looking forward to this fall.
I love everything about Halloween, except the costume magazines, which appear in my mailbox in July. I can’t even think about costumes when it’s still over 100 degrees outside. And then of course, there are the big warehouse stores who put out the gargantuan (my SAT word for the day) candy bags in August. Is it me, or do you need a forklift to haul some of those bags into your shopping cart?
Other things I love about fall? The cooler weather. The opportunity to finally run outside without getting heat stroke. And the release of many books I’ve been waiting months to read!
Here are a few titles I can’t wait to get my hands on – it’s truly a bonanza for anyone who loves Young Adult Fiction. And as you may notice, there appears to be a pattern here, as many popular series are taking their final bow.
The final installment in The Matched Trilogy and the conclusion to the epic romance between Cassia & Ty.
BEAUTIFUL REDEMPTION by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (October 23)
Ethan and Lena have been torn apart and now they must find their way back to each other in this epic conclusion to the Caster Chronicles Series.
Patch and Nora have battled many demons but now they may have to battle their own family and friends in order to stay together.
THE LIES THAT BIND by Lisa & Laura Roecker (November 1)
The sequel to the enormously popular, THE LIAR SOCIETY. This time Kate Lowry is back to sleuthing when a prep school classmate goes missing.
In this highly anticipated sequel, Mara finds herself coming to grips with her extraordinary power, and finds herself doubting everyone around her, including the boy she’s supposed to love.
So those are a few of the new books releasing soon that I’m excited to read. How about you? Is there something hitting the bookshelves soon you’re dying to read? I’d love to hear about it!
And NEXT FRIDAY… THE F3 (First Five Frenzy) returns with Agent Michael Carr of Veritas Literary sharing his thoughts on what makes the first five pages of a manuscript compelling! For any aspiring writer, this is a must read!
