Books To Come: Fall Edition (Part I)

Ive been MIA for a while, but I'm coming back. Now that college stuff is resolved, I have more free time.

So, why not start this with a bang? Let's talk about some books aimed for this fall! I can't put them all in ONE post because, well, there's too many, but I will make various posts about them all.

Let's start with at least 7 shall we?

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Book Description:

This wasn't the way it was supposed to go.

You're just a typical fifteen-year-old sophomore, an average guy named Kyle Chase. This can't be happening to you. But then, how do you explain all the blood? How do you explain how you got here in the first place?

There had to have been signs, had to have been some clues it was coming. Did you miss them, or ignore them? Maybe if you can figure out where it all went wrong, you can still make it right. Or is it already too late? Think fast, Kyle. Time's running out. How did this happen?

You is the riveting story of fifteen-year-old Kyle and the small choices he does and doesn't make that lead to his own destruction.

In his stunning young-adult debut, Charles Benoit mixes riveting tension with an insightful—and unsettling—portrait of an ordinary teen in a tale that is taut, powerful, and shattering.

Book Description:

Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books—but we are real.

Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. we have lived among you without you knowing.

But they know.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.

I am Number Four.

I am next.

Book Description:

When Callie arrives for her freshman year at Harvard, she encounters her three vastly different roommates, new friendships, steamy romance, and scandalous secrets.

**Edit; summary from back of my own book**

What is freshman life at Harvard University really like? Best friends and 2008 Harvard graduates Lauren Kunze and Rina Onur launch their series with this hilarious, romantic, sexy, and shocking novel about friendship, growing up, love, and -oh yeah- higher education.

That's the only extra info I could get. Sorry if it isn't enough.

Book Description:

A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.

Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

Book Description:

Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through paranormals’ glamours.

But Evie’s about to realize that she may very well be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.

So much for normal.

On Sale: October 12, 2010.
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Book Description:

Bright Young Things is the first in an epic four-book series about three teenage girls finding their way in the glittering metropolis of New York City and the glamorous mansions of Long Island. It’s 1929 and Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey have escaped their small Midwestern town to chase big dreams and even bigger secrets. In New York, they meet Astrid Donal, a flapper who has everything she could ever want, except for the one thing Letty and Cordelia have to offer—true friendship. Set in the dizzying summer before the market crash, against the vast lawns of the East End and on the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls will find romance, intrigue, and adventure.

Just as The Luxe books brought the Gilded Age to readers of Gossip Girl, Bright Young Things will bring the Jazz Age to bestselling author Anna Godbersen’s devoted fans and to new readers alike.

A pretty GREAT list! I want to read them all!!! Now, let's do a list by order, from I-would-give-you-my-lung-for-this-book to I-really-want-to-read-that.

1. Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen (Yes, I love her writing)
3. THE IVY by Lauren Kunze with Rina Onur (So freaking lucky I got to meet the author at BEA; she signed my book!!!)

What's your list? Remember this is only the first part of this post! There will be more great books, soon!

PS; Oh my GOODNESS! I just saw the new Narnia trailer!!! I SOO want to watch it!!! If you want to go to the main page and watch it click here. Or, you could just click play down below matey.


  1. I'm so jealousy of The Ivy. I got the signing late and she had just out of books. I could have gotten an ecopy, but I completely forgot.

  2. Great list - I hadn't heard of some of these before. I think I'd put I am #4 on the top of my list

  3. Aren't you excited for the new Narnia movie? I know I am! Great list of books you have here.

  4. Mmm...Ben Barnes haha. I really enjoy the Narnia movies. Thanks for posting the trailer, I had not yet seen it. :)

    Also, great books picks! I'm really looking forward to "You".

  5. I'd read Paranormalcy first,because the hype is driving me crazy!, then Bright Young Things because I looooove Anna Godbersen, and then Ivy because the story sounds interesting.

  6. Those sound pretty good. I'm really looking forward to reading Paranormalcy.
    Yay! Another Narnia movie! I haven't read the books yet, but I LOVE the movies. And the third one looks really good! ^_^

  7. Excellent list here, Tasch. <3 A few books here you've introduced me to and now I really really want to read them. Ha! Love it.



  8. Lots of great things still to come this year. Great choices for today's post.

    I love Narnia :D

  9. I can't wait to read Paranormalcy and Firelight. The new Narnia movie looks good to!

  10. I had never heard of I Am Number 4 and think I might put it at the top of this list! Thanks for sharing these!

  11. Is there not more of a blurb than the one line for The Ivy? I have looked elsewhere on-line and have been unable to find any other info on the book than what you had here. How can we decide if this is something we'd be interested in with only one line?

    alterlisa AT yahoo DOT com

  12. All of these books are on my wishlist! Thankfully I'll have an ARC of Firelight in my hands soon. lol. ;) Can't wait to see what other books you post about :D


  13. Hi guys, Lauren Kunze here, author of The Ivy! Harperteen tweeted at me about this post, and I'm here to satisfy your curiosity with blurbs! The series website will be live soon, so more information to come, but for now:

    From the ebook:
    "Freshman year at Harvard--glamorous parties, blossoming friendships, steamy romances, and scandalous secrets. Skip the campus tour and get right to the good stuff: classes are for scoping guys (and their Facebook profiles), not taking notes. The library is for study dates (the medieval history stacks get a lot of action), not studying. And success is a 4.0 GPA... plus getting into the most exclusive parties. How will Callie--a California girl with brains, beauty, and big dreams--and her three roommates survive?

    Get admitted to The Ivy, the first book in a provocative new series about the world of the Ivy League."

    And, from the hardback book flap:
    "CALLIE ANDREWS may not have money or connections or the right clothes, and she may have way too many complications in her love life, what with--

    the guy she loves to hate
    the guy she'd love to forget
    the guy she'd love to love
    and MATT
    the guy she really should love

    --all vying for her attention.
    But she has three fantastic roommates (best friends or her worst nightmare?) and a wholesome California-girl reputation (oops) and brains and beauty and big, big dreams.
    Will it be enough to survive freshman year at Harvard?"

    Thank you so much to everyone who is excited for The Ivy! For more news and updates feel free to follow me on twitter:

    That's enough procrastination for now... have to get back to work on editing the sequel!
