As usual, I've gone over ten, but do you know how HARD it is to only list ten? How do other people DO it? Ten is so SMALL. To keep myself at least close to ten, I focused only on the books I do not own or have ARCs of but that are coming out in September, October, or November (which means I can't scream NEW TAMORA PIERCE BOOK NEW TAMORA PIERCE BOOK or THESE BROKEN STARS I CANNOT WAIT TO DIVE IN except oh look I just did). Just for reasons. Basically, these are the books at the top of my "to buy" list.
1. Red by Alison Cherry
I've always wanted to be a redhead, and this book may be the thing that finally convinces me to do or dye trying (BADUM BUM).
2. Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano
Pretty cover. Pretty premise. I wants.
3. Premeditated by Josin L. McQuein
I've wanted this book ever since I read its prospective query on Query Shark a million years ago. AND NOW IT'S COMING.
4. Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan
Which of my ships will sail? (None, if I know Sarah. Or all. I can't decide). Who will die and destroy my soul? (Everyone, if I know Sarah).
5. Goodbye, Rebel Blue by Shelley Coriell
I've hear nothing but good things about Coriell's first novel, and this one just looks and sounds amazing. Also: cover. LOOK AT IT.
6. Palace of Spies by Sarah Zettel
British history + mystery = Gillian's happy place.
7. The Brokenhearted by Amelia Kahaney
The Dark Knight meets Cinder. While the fact that it's packaged by Alloy Entertainment makes me nervous, I'm willing to give this a shot for its AWESOME premise.
8. This Wicked Game by Michelle Zink
One word: voodoo.
9. Shadows by Robin McKinley
I've loved many Robin McKinley books, and considering this is set in "a compelling and inventive novel set in a world where science and magic are at odds"... I NEED IT.
10. Exile (Keeper of the Lost Cities 2) by Shannon Messenger
I had mixed feelings about the first book in this series, but ultimately I was charmed by it. I'm excited to get to book two and find out if Sophie a) kisses one of her many boyfriends, or b) gains a new superpower. Since, you know, a million isn't enough for one thirteen-year-old elf.
11. Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Well, duh. Big final installment to big, highly-hyped series.
12. Champion by Marie Lu
