Welcome to Hot Off the Presses!
Every Tuesday, I tell you about all the great new YA books you can grab in the week to come. If you're a reviewer, you can also link your blog or Goodreads reviews of any YA book publishing in August so we can all check them out!
Hot Off the Presses aims to include every traditionally published YA -- if I missed something, please let me know in comments. You are also welcome to link your reviews of YA books that were self-pubbed in August!
The winner of my August giveaway can pick any book up to $15 on either Amazon (for US winner) or The Book Depository (for international winner.) Enter by linking reviews, commenting on linked reviews, or tweeting :)Last week of calm before the storm! This is such a slow week that I included The Bone Season, an adult crossover that was just selected as the book club pick on NBC's Today Show. If I missed anything, let me know in comments!
Asylum by Madeleine Roux (Harper)
My Totally Awkward Supernatural Crush by Laura Toffler-Corrie (Roaring Brook)
Flicker & Burn by T. M Goeglein (Putnam)
VIII by H.M. Castor (Simon & Schuster)
Soulbroken (Legacy of Tril #2) by Heather Brewer
This Side of Jealousy (Innocents #2) by Lili Peloquin
My take on this week: Teen Snark and I both read and enjoyed The Bone Season -- you can read my review here. Though I admire the cleverness of Miss Peregrine and the like, I'm thinking I will skip Asylum and try an adult mixed-media book that also releases today, Night Film. I have If You Could Be Mine and am excited to try it. I was hopeful about VIII, until I read Bookworm 1858's review and learned that the book skips over some important life events. I'll wait for this author's book about Henry's daughters, half-sisters Mary and Elizabeth. Finally, what happened to the old cover of This Side of Jealousy?
