Four new YA releases and a handful of reissued paperbacks. I don’t know much about the new books hot off the press this week. Although, I did see on Goodreads that Miguel and Joey reviewed The Temptation of Adam by Dave Connie favourably. Maybe their thoughts will help you decide if you want to pick it up too.
You know the year is coming to an end when the number of book releases also winds down. November is the month that publishers push out the last big titles just in time for Christmas. This years, that includes the highly anticipated Renegades by Marissa Meyer last week and the sequel to The Diabolic, The Empress by S.J. Kincaid the week before. December then becomes really quiet on the publishing front.
After weeks and months of seeing bloggers rave about Dear Martin, I can’t wait to pick it up too. I’m pretty curious about I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter and A Line in the Dark as well. These three represent black, Mexican and Chinese youths respectively, which is heartening because there is by far not enough ethnic diversity in YA literature. The Innocence Treatment also sounds intriguing as it deals with mental health in science fiction.
