Hot Off The Presses highlights great new YA releases for the coming week.
These books are coming out the week of June 19-25.
Last week, a lot of us were complaining about our rising TBR piles and shrinking cash flow. You'll be happy to see that this week is a little calmer.
But ... there are two books coming out today that I'm excited about. Click on the cover for details.
This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers.
I'm reading this right now and .....whoa!
If you're a regular around here, you know I do NOT like zombies. At all. But I have loved every Courtney Summers book I've ever read -- I think I've read all her books. So for her, I'm reading this. And if I get too scared, I'll hide the book under a pile of pajamas and then put it into Freebie Friday.
Something Like Normal by Trish Dollar
I've heard nothing but amazing things about this one, so I've got to read it!
There are a few other YA books releasing in the coming week. Click the highlighted titles to check them out on Goodreads.
The Wild Queen by Carolyn Meyer
Burn Mark by Laura Powell Check out Bookworm 1858s review of this book here!
The Violins of Autumn by Amy McAuley
Just Flirt by Laura Bowers
If I missed something, please let me know in comments and I'll add it with your name!
Is it wrong that I am excited that there is only one book that interests me this week? Something Like Normal looks really good, but I can hold off for a little bit. My bank account thanks you!ReplyDelete
I feel the same way. I couldn't keep up that pace of reading!!Delete
You're turing to the dark side aren't you? This is the second zombie book! Lol I don't know if I can do it...ReplyDelete
Yep, that could be true. It was a good book!!Delete
I really liked Burn Mark-the witchy world created was so cool and I felt absolutely immersed in it because of all the details. Something Like Normal wasn't as strong for me because I was uncomfortable with some of the messed-up relationships in the book.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the comment -- I linked to your review!Delete
Those are the top two on my list too!! I haven't read a zombie book yet, but I've read so many great reviews about This is Not a Test and from what I hear, it's a little different than a normal Zombie book. I'm also going to be getting Something Like Normal. That sounds so good and I love books from the male POV!ReplyDelete
I loved This Is Not a Test. It's a zombie book for contemp lovers. Reviewing it on Thursday!Delete
I'm so excited for these two!ReplyDelete
I know!!! Going to be giving away This Is Not a Test, so if you don't have it, stay tuned.Delete
I've heard so many good things about This is Not a Test ... I can't wait to finally read it! Though, my bank account needs a rest ...ReplyDelete
I agree -- could use a little breather from buying books!!Delete
Squee!! My copy of This Is Not A Test shipped from The Book Depository yesterday. Can't wait to get it!! I have Burn Mark to read for the Blog Tour.ReplyDelete
Curious to see if there's enough gore for you. I loved it!!!Delete
I am very excited for Something Like Normal. I too have heard such great things about it. Definitely will be a raw and powerful read.ReplyDelete
I'm excited for that one too!Delete
Wow! I am shocked at a small book week as far as relases go. I loved Just Flirt, it was such a cute summer read! And I really need to dust off my copy of This Is Not A Test and read it. I am not a zombie person either, but I thought it sounded great! How are you liking it so far?ReplyDelete
Just tweeted you. I had to finish it. Now back to For Darkness Shows the Stars, which I'm also enjoying.Delete
I have been thinking about reading This Is Not A Test, but have never read a zombie book, looking forward to seeing if you'll like it or not. I've heard it's pretty good!ReplyDelete
Yay for not many books coming out this week!..lol
Reviewing tomorrow. Hoping I can get a few zombie-phobes like me to try it!Delete
THIS IS NOT A TEST is ALL over the Internet today. Quite a buzz going. I'm not into zombies, but we'll see.ReplyDelete
Neither am I!! But I am a huge fan of the author.Delete
I have seen This Is Not A Test. The second one is new to me, but I'll wait to add them to my pile until I've read reviews. . . so I'm looking forward to seeing them when you post later. :) I've got a bunch of books to get through this week since it seems the library has been dumping all my requests all at once. :) After that, I've got to read all the books I own that are in my tbr pile. So many books, so little time.ReplyDelete
I know how you feel! I was feeling a little more caught up this week, then I got an email from the library that a couple books came in for me.Delete
I flippin loved THIS IS NOT A TEST, I read it in one sitting- couldn't stop! :)ReplyDelete
I felt the same way!!Delete
I can't wait to hear what you think about This Is Not A Test and Something Like Normal. They both look so good!ReplyDelete
I'll review TiNaT tomorrow. and I need to get hold of Something Like Normal :)Delete
AHHHHHH! I am not really a zombie book girl either, not out of any fear, just because they are not my thing but I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK! Obviously I have stated more than once my girl love for Courtney Summers and I feel like This Is Not A Test is a book I have been stalking FOREVER. I can't wait for your review! Bring it!ReplyDelete
She is one of my favorite contemporary authors. Love her!!Delete
I'm excited for This Is Not A Test! I also have Burn Mark from Netgalley and still need to read that.ReplyDelete
