As soon as I'm back from vacation, I want to to a trends post. But I'll say here that I'm beyond thrilled at all the new YA mysteries that are coming out in the fall of 2013! Here's one I can't wait for -- I was very impressed by Breaking Beautiful, the debut book by Jennifer Shaw Wolfe.
I've been stalking NetGalley like a fiend….
Dead Girls Don't Lie
by Jennifer Shaw Wolf
To be published by Walker Children's Books
on September 17, 2013
Rachel died at two a.m . . . Three hours after Skyler kissed me for the first time. Forty-five minutes after she sent me her last text. Jaycee and Rachel were best friends. But that was before. . .before that terrible night at the old house. Before Rachel shut Jaycee out. Before Jaycee chose Skyler over Rachel. Then Rachel is found dead. The police blame a growing gang problem in their small town, but Jaycee is sure it has to do with that night at the old house. Rachel’s text is the first clue—starting Jaycee on a search that leads to a shocking secret. Rachel’s death was no random crime, and Jaycee must figure out who to trust before she can expose the truth.

My WoW @ So Bookalicious
Haven't read Breaking Beautiful but I'm pretty sure it's on my list after your recommendation. The summary for this one sounds kind of familiar; I think there's another book where something bad happens shortly after a girl chooses a boy over her best friend.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great mystery! I mean what happened at this old house?!?ReplyDelete
I've not read Breaking Beautiful. I am really curious about what happened in that house. Sounds like a great mystery. :-)ReplyDelete
My Friends Are Fiction's WOW
I'm so excited for this one, too. I keep hoping it will show up on NG or EW, too, but no luck here so far. Hopefully we'll be able to get our hands on it soon. Great pick!ReplyDelete
I think I've seen a book with that same title! Or somewhat just close to it. Anyway, this one sounds so intriguing! Thanks for sharing. Adding it to my TBR. :DReplyDelete
Nina @ The Bookish Confections

Great pick... Adding to my TBR list immediately!ReplyDelete
Brandy @ A Little of the Book Life
Wow, this sounds like it's going to be a brilliant mystery novel! I'm dying to know what happened in the house that led to Rachel's death now! Definitely adding this to my TBR.ReplyDelete
Great pick :)
I'm really confused by that summary, but I love mysteries and trust you. :)ReplyDelete
Love a good mystery story. Adding it.ReplyDelete
Sounds... interesting! Might not be something I usually read, but I look forward to reading your review when you read it! :)ReplyDelete
Check out my WoW post!
Oh! That sounds fantastic!! Thanks for bringing it to my attention! :)ReplyDelete
Mysteries are a mixed bag for me. If it's too complicated I stop worrying about trying to figure it out but too simple and I'm bored. So picky! lolReplyDelete
Sounds great, Hope you get to read it soon!ReplyDelete

That about gives me chills just reading the blurb. I understand stocking NetGalley. ;) I missed a bunch on Edelweiss one week I wasn't checking and am trying to avoid that in the future. I hope you see it soon and get a copy.ReplyDelete

You should do a trends post when you come back from vacay! I'm curious about all the YA mysteries you've seen, 'cause I'm not sure I've seen a super increase in them (but I'm also terrible at noticing these things). I hope you'll find this one on NG and to your liking :).ReplyDelete
I have never heard of this book before or the author but it sounds amazing. I love a good thriller. Thanks for sharing. ;)ReplyDelete
Beckie @ Bittersweet Enchantment
Sounds cool. I think fall is a good time for a few good YA mysteries. Hope your having fun on your vacay :)Looking forward to a trends post too :)ReplyDelete
OMG this sounds so good and I hadn't heard of it before! Thanks for bringing it to my attention! Adding it to the TBR now. :)ReplyDelete

This sounds really good! I don't think I have seen this before. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Sounds creepy and intriguing!ReplyDelete
I do love a good mystery. :) I think I saw this on a WoW a bit ago, but I didn't pay it much attention. Think I might have to stalk NG myself. :PReplyDelete
I'm also loving all the mysteries coming our way lately. Love the cover for this too- great WoW choice! :-)ReplyDelete
