There are so many awesome books coming out in the next couple of months. I wanted to take some time to spotlight some of the April 2012 Young Adult book releases that Estelle and I have on our TBR lists! If one (or both) of us has read it, I linked our reviews, too, so […]

Summer - Thanks for the April list! You actually listed a couple that I hadn’t checked out yet to add to my (now ridiculously huge) April list!

Below is a short list that you should look into! (Also: If you’ve reviewed these in any previous posts then my apologies!)

Teen and YA April Books of Awesome:

Grave Mercy :: R.L. LaFevers
Storm (Elementals, Bk 1) :: Brigid Kemmerer
Magic Under Stone :: Jaclyn Dolamore
Unraveling :: Elizabeth Norris
Above :: Leah Bobet
The Calling :: Kelly Armstrong
Taken at Dusk :: C.C. Hunter
Masque of the Red Death :: Bethany Griffin
The Immortal Rules :: Julie Kagawa
The Book of Blood and Shadow :: Robin Wasserman
Black Heart :: Holly Black
The Last Echo :: Kimberly Derting
Social Suicide :: Gemma Halliday
Immortal City :: Scott Speer
Glimmer :: Phoebe Kitanidis

Seriously, for 2012 titles alone, it will take yeeears to get through all of the releases! Books are absolutely worth it and I’m thrilled that there are so many authors debuting! If only I could literally__only__read for hours and hours on end and be paid for it. Ha!

Anyway, my asinine babbling aside: Enjoy! 🙂

Clare @ Blue Archipelago Reviews - I just finished reading this one and I really liked it, I didn’t realise it was a YA book until after I’d read it and I did find that surprising. Does seem strange to have a YA book narrated by an elderly gentleman, but Aidan covers some sensitive issues in a straight forward fashion, and I think he does a very good job. I connected with the narrator and Karl, but I do wonder if that’s because I could relate to some of the issues – perhaps more so than the target audience who are more than half my age!

VeganYANerds - I really enjoy your book reports, girls!

I have Dying to Know You on my to-read list, but it wasn’t a book I read a lot about, I just added it.

I still want to read it and I agree that it’s interesting that the narrator for a YA book is a guy who is 70.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This book had an intriguing concept – but based on your honest opinions, I’d surmise that it’s a book that I might not necessarily appreciate reading. I may check it out eventually, but right now, I don’t think I’m in the right frame of mind for it.

Thank you for being so honest!

And I absolutely love the quotes you guys chose 🙂
