Hot Off the Presses! New YA Releasing August 23-29

Welcome to Hot Off the Presses!  

Tuesday is book release day, so every Tuesday I tell you about all the great new YA books you can buy in the week to come.

Hot Off the Presses aims to include every traditionally published YA book. Please let me know about books that came out this week that I might have missed! Some titles may have different release dates outside the US.

Which of these are you interested in? I was a little bit intrigued by Unscripted Joss Byrd, but the main character is only 12, so I'm taking a pass. I'm tempted by the weirdness of Spontaneous, but according to my Goodreads feed, it has an unlikeable main character and a bad romance. And 100 Days sounds good but really depressing - I'm kind of done with YA illness books. But if you think I should reconsider, let me know!

100 Days by Nicole McInnes (FSG)
8 Rivers of Shadow (13 Days of Midnight #2) by Leo Hunt (Candlewick)
Ghostly Echoes (Jackaby #3) by William Ritter (Algonquin)
Scavenger of Souls (Survival Colony #2) by Joshua David Bellin (Margaret McElderry)
Spontaneous by Aaron Starmer (Dutton)
Thieving Weasels by Billy Taylor (Dial)
Under the Lights (Field Party #2) by Abbi Glines (Simon Pulse)
Unscripted Joss Byrd by Lygia Day Penaflor (Roaring Brook)


  1. Only book I'm considering on this list is Ghostly Echoes!! Need to know what happens next!!

  2. Been seeing good things about Scavenger of Souls. I'll need to grab and read the first one in that series.

  3. Spontaneous sounds insane. I loved riverman , i can't wait what he thinks of next

  4. I always forget how the books kind of slow down towards the end of summer before they rack up like crazy in the fall. There's nothing high on my list here, except I'm hoping to read the Jackaby series.

  5. I've read Under the Lights (Field Party #2) by Abbi Glines. Unscripted Joss Byrd by Lygia Day Penaflor do sound interesing :)

  6. I always love checking out these posts of yours because then I know I am never going to miss out on some epic books. I actually haven't heard of any of these before - they're all so new to me!
