Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - So many good books being released in May. So many beach reads, so little time!

May 4, 2013 - 9:50 pm

Rachel - Sometimes I honestly wish I could pause all these new releases so I can catch up and be ready for them. I want to read almost every May release, excluding September Girls because I will never put myself through the torture that is that book. I’ve already read/own a lot of these, but I really can’t wait for Five Summers to come out. That totally looks like a me book.

May 4, 2013 - 5:49 pm

candy - I never really paid much attention to mentions of The Rules for Disappearing bc for a teen mom’s perspective it sounds like a book about a teen running away,which can be a scary thought for a mom.But now that I read the Description here,I want to read it.I also love this idea of the Author being from Louisiana like me.Thanks for posting about theses books.I also want to read Golden and Parallel.

May 3, 2013 - 5:07 pm

Annie - Oooh, May seems like an amazing month! I’m definitely going to grab Winger as soon as it comes out! Marked it on my calendar! :)

May 3, 2013 - 1:37 pm

Leticia (@osoordinary) - Reboot!Reboot!Reboot! Can’t wait to read it! Also, I won an ARC of Parallel so I’m excited to read that! It’ll be my first parallel universes book and I’m newly interested, after having just completed the Fringe TV series! = )

May 3, 2013 - 11:45 am

Alexa Y. - Oh Lord, there goes all my cash! (Just kidding.) (Not really.) Seriously, there’s a ton of good stuff on here! My favorite, without a doubt, is Golden because I loved that book so.

May 3, 2013 - 10:36 am

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Holy almost-summer, Batman is right!! My wallet is soooo suffering this month, that’s for sure. I’ve already read a few but there are sooo many more I can’t wait to read! :)

May 3, 2013 - 8:51 am

Bookworm1858 - So many good titles-I want to read almost all of these and the only ones I’ve picked up so far are Reboot, The Rules for Disappearing, and The Book of Broken Hearts. I can’t wait to get these other ones!

May 3, 2013 - 6:39 am

Hannah @ Matter Loved Dust - Some of these have different UK release dates so I picked up ‘Invisibility’ yesterday which I’m excited to start. Also really looking forward to ‘The Originals’ and ‘Winger’!

April 2013 Young Adult Book Releases

Happy Saturday, friends! I hope you have safe travels if you’re on the road to visit family this weekend. If you’re at home snuggled up with a book, I’m living vicariously through you. Dustyn and I are doing lots of traveling. Don’t you worry, though, I’ll be reading a book in the car. There are […]

Janita @ Book, Interrupted - Can’t wait to read The Elite! I fell in the love with the first one and I’m excited to see where the author is going to take the story. Plus the covers are gorgeous!

March 30, 2013 - 8:28 pm

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - Well, crap. I feel like How I Lost You is going to make me sob buckets. But I really, really want to read it!

Also, yayyyy for summery covers!

March 30, 2013 - 3:49 pm

Annie - Ohmigod, so many good books! I absolutely cannot wait for April. You can count on the fact that I will be the first person in the bookstore on each and every day. So excited!!! Especially for This Is What Happy Looks Like and The Symptoms of Insanity! :)

March 30, 2013 - 2:45 pm

Rachel - Well, my TBR list just got WAY longer. I didn’t know there were so many contemps coming out this month! The covers for How I Lost You and How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True are so pretty! I’m excited to finally be able to read The Boyfriend App. I feel like I’ve been waiting for forever for that one.

March 30, 2013 - 1:55 pm

Hollie @ Music, Books and Tea - April is such a great book month! I’m looking forward to so many of these books, although I’m sure my purse isn’t, haha!

March 30, 2013 - 1:43 pm

Leoni - Lots of exciting books! The Program sounds interesting, I’m looking forward to reading reviews for it and yes April 23rd is looking very summery! :)

March 30, 2013 - 1:35 pm

Nancy @ Tumbling Books - I want all of these, but especially The Elite, The Program, and Taken. April needs to get here quicker!

March 2013 Young Adult Book Releases

Okay, so this is silly, but I’m still so ridiculously giddy over all the graphics Alex made for us. Inserting our new Monthly Book Release one above makes me soooo happy because this is the first official time I get to use it. *happy dance* Anyway — what’s kind of depressing is that we’re soon […]

February 27, 2013 - 3:49 pm

Magan - Right, Alexa? So many good ones, not enough time! :)

February 27, 2013 - 1:47 pm

Alexa Y. - As always, your monthly post has reminded me that there are a TON of great books that I want to read during March! Now if only I had a Time Turner so I could get to them all…

February 27, 2013 - 12:13 am

Maggie @ Young Adult Anonymous - I love the graphic. Seriously, this is one of the prettiest blogs out there. Thanks for this handy dandy list! :)

February 25, 2013 - 11:19 am

February 24, 2013 - 8:14 am

Bella - March looks like a very good month for book releases! :] I’m really excited for The Revenge of the Girl with the Great Personality, Going Vintage, and Poison. Thanks so much for sharing!

February 23, 2013 - 3:33 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - So Magan I can totally understand why you’re so excited to use that graphic, because it is ridiculously awesome. I am still in awe of your gorgeous blog design, even though I’ve visited your blog so much since it was redone. But it never fails to blow me away!

But anyways, I’m pretty much dying for Requiem as well. I plan to completely blow off ALL homework that day, and just spend the night reading. I want no disturbances.

I’m also pretty excited for Mila 2.0 and The Murmurings! Both sounds fabulous.

Thanks for sharing, Magan! <3

February 23, 2013 - 11:35 am

Jessica - Sweet Green Tangerine - Oh my gosh, SO stinkin excited for Requiem. Thanks for sharing all of these. :)

February 22, 2013 - 6:50 pm

Annie - The books sound amazing, and I love all the covers! They’re brilliant! I’m so excited for Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets, it sounds great!

February 22, 2013 - 4:37 pm

elena - I’m excited for Let the Sky Fall and Poison! Like you already know, I’m soo curious to see what you’ll think of Requiem.

February 22, 2013 - 10:39 am

Magan - Bookworm, there’s just no end in sight for all the awesome. Really, so, so many good things coming! My husband will flip if he finds out how many I *want* to buy! 😉

February 22, 2013 - 10:38 am

Magan - Ginger! It’s still March! I feel a little like a fraud because I haven’t read the other two books. I know, I know! :(

February 22, 2013 - 10:37 am

Magan - Ugh, LENA! I’m not sure how I forgot this. Well, yes I do. It was 1:00AM when I was putting this list together. Thanks for the heads up — I added it to the list!

February 22, 2013 - 9:54 am

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - LOVE this post, but my bank account hates you! Goodbye savings, hello goodies! I’m seriously excited about GOING VINTAGE and REQUIEM. Tsk, tsk, tsk, Magan, you forgot THINGS I CAN’T FORGET. March 1st, yo!

February 22, 2013 - 9:51 am

Ginger @ GReads! - There’s a pretty important book coming out in March that didn’t make your list: CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by Cassandra Clare. Or at least I think it’s coming out in March, unless they changed the date AGAIN lol.

February 22, 2013 - 9:11 am

Bookworm1858 - So I was hoping that March would be a slower month after all the great releases of January and February but I was wrong. There are just so many amazing books and I’m sad because I know I can’t get to them all :(

February 2013 Young Adult Book Releases

Hi, friends! The first month of 2013 is almost over. You know what that means? Looking forward to a new month bursting with amazing releases! The Chemical Garden series by Lauren DeStefano is coming to an end (sigh), but we get to meet Scarlet in the Lunar Chronicles and see what Juliette is up to […]

February 10, 2013 - 11:00 pm

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I already bought Unravel Me, but I’m also really looking forward to Out of the Easy and Pivot Point! Both sound interesting, and I’ve heard good things about both so that’s also really nice!

January 25, 2013 - 12:56 pm

Cassie - My oh my. SO MANY BOOKS. I read Unravel Me and adored it. I can’t speak highly enough about Tahereh Mafi’s writing. I can’t wait for The Ruining, Out of the Easy, The Reece Malcom List and How to Lead a Life of Crime!

January 25, 2013 - 12:27 pm

Rachel - Oh man, so many good books out this month! I’m excited for the rest of the world to read Unravel Me, as I finished that one recently. I’m looking forward to Pivot Point, The Ruining, and Hysteria.

January 25, 2013 - 11:01 am

Alexa Y. - There are SO many good books out this month, but I’m particularly looking forward to Unravel Me and Scarlet! I need to do a re-read of Scarlet once I get my own copy…

January 25, 2013 - 8:08 am

Jen - Well, we already discussed Unravel Me at length, so you already know my thoughts on that one :) Can’t wait for the finished copy so I can do a thorough and heart-pounding re-read!

January 2013 Young Adult Book Releases

    Oh, hi there! Yup. We’re moving on to 2013. Can you believe it? A new year? HOW DID 2012 GO BY SO QUICKLY? It seems like I was just waiting for The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith and Cinder by Marissa Meyer. There are tons and tons of […]

December 29, 2012 - 11:09 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Magan, you are totally right about 2013 starting off with a huge bang! Seriously, I’m about to start drooling over all these pretties. SO many of these books are ones I’ve been waiting forever for, like Asunder, Prodigy, Everbound, and Through the Ever Night. I can’t wait to see what these sophomore authors have in store for us next with their second books!! I’m also really looking forward to The Archived. I’ve only seen gushing reviews of it so far, and it sounds so utterly unique. I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Level 2 is also look fantastic! AND it’s written by a book blogger, so it really can’t get better than that. 😉 It’s going to be one of the few debuts that I preorder, I believe.

Thanks so much for putting this lovely post together, Magan! January 2013 is going to be fabulous!

December 29, 2012 - 10:31 pm

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - I want to comment on all of these books, but that would take forever. I *will* say that I’ve read Revolution 19 and it was fun. I JUST finished Prodigy and WOW WOW WOW. Also, since I base lots of my reading on covers (I know, I know, shallow Asheley?) I may have a tough time choosing from these because ALL of these covers are so great. And I already want to read them all. The beginning of 2013 is SUCH a great, exciting time to be a fan of YA!

December 29, 2012 - 9:23 pm

Lisa the Nerd - Level 2! Level 2! Level 2!

December 29, 2012 - 8:46 pm

Magan - Gaby – you’re such a sweetheart! These posts do take me a while, but that’s usually because wordpress decides to format things oddly and it drives me nuts. Haha! So happy you’re looking forward to so much. I swear I’ll spend all my Christmas money in January! 😉

Mands — I love the repackage too. I’ve only read one Caletti book so I’m definitely anxious for more!

Sara — I know, right?! SO much awesome!

December 29, 2012 - 8:45 pm

Magan - Me, too, Lily. There are SO MANY good books coming out!

December 29, 2012 - 8:26 pm

Lily - January is going to be such a good month for new releases I’m super excited… I just wish my bank account could say the same.

December 29, 2012 - 7:13 pm

Gaby @ Queen Ella Bee Reads - This list is AMAZING. I’m talking mostly about the fact that you compiled it. What’s on it is also pretty great. Not to mention, I’m excited about a lot of things on it, especially Just One Day, All You Need is Love, Then You Were Gone, Paper Valentine, Return to Me and Nobody But Us. Thanks for all the hard work! ^_^

December 29, 2012 - 4:09 am

VeganYANerds - 2012 really did fly by, I can’t believe it!

I got all excited when I saw Love Is All You Need, thinking it was a new book by Deb but then I see it’s a re-package. Still, I love the title and the cover!

Also, can’t wait for Falling for You – have just heard good things about it!

December 29, 2012 - 12:09 am

Sara (of the Page Sage) - Ah! Too many awesome books! I’m especially excited for Just One Day, The Archived, and Paper Valentine.

December 2012 Young Adult Book Releases

Happy very early Merry Christmas! I know I’d be a happy lady if a pile o’ books had my name on them this Christmas. What are you hoping for most? This has been the year I’ve had the most trouble making a list for my mom. I should just write BUY ME A BARNES & […]
