Coming Soon

  1. I did something they tell you never to do: I finished a book with nothing in the wings. My revisions for Those Who Trespass will soon be sent off, and then I will have...nothing. This wouldn't be as big of a deal if I wasn't heading off to college in two weeks {gulp}. But I don't even want to think about what will happen to me if I start college without a writing project. By the time I get my brain back on writing, I won't even know what an outline is.
  2. It's a really good month to be a young adult reader. Goodreads emailed me today and informed me of the following new releases:
    1. The Kill Order, by James Dashner. A prequel to Maze Runner. Really excited about this one because maybe things will finally make a lot of sense. Would love to see how Thomas and Theresa's relationship began.
    2. The Rise of Nine, by Pittacus Lore. Third in the Lorien series. You know--the I Am Number Four series. I have The Power of Six on my shelf right now, so we're making good time. {Does it bother anyone else that the numbers in the titles have nothing to do with the numbers of the books?}
    3. Nevermore, by James Patterson. Apparently this is the final Maximum Ride book, though I'll believe that when I see it. I really ready for this {read: Max and Fang's relationship, and no, that does not need to include Dylan} to be resolved already!
    4. UnWholly, by Neal Shusterman. Sequel to Unwind. Do I need to say anymore? Unwind is probably the creepiest book I've ever read that didn't involve the supernatural. Twisted my stomach into knots, it did, yet I couldn't put it down.
    5. Palace of Stone, by Shannon Hale. Sequel to Princess Academy. I've known about this one for a while, since I follow Shannon's blog, but that doesn't make me any less excited. Shannon's books are gently suspenseful and so very romantic--in the best of ways.
    6. Rebel Heart, by Moira Young. Sequel to Blood Red Road. I wasn't sure what I thought of Blood Red Road. What happens next in the story will probably shape my opinion of the whole.
  3. I checked out a Sara Zarr novel {Sweethearts} on my Kindle. And now I can't...put...it...down. This happens every time I pick up one of her novels! Well done, Sara. Very well done. Sigh.
