 It's fall y'all. The most pleasant weather time (says me) (but I'm right) AND when all the YA books you've been waiting for drop! There is so much exciting stuff coming out in September that my initial list was pages and pages long. I couldn't narrow it down, so I just took a random sampling. 

If you're ever looking for recommendations, drop into the library, or email me at I LOVE to talk books!


Jane Unlimited
by Kristin Cashore

Jane remembers her aunt telling her: "If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you'll go." With nothing but a trunkful of umbrella parts to her name, Jane ventures out to the Thrash estate. Then her story takes a turn, or rather, five turns. What Jane doesn't know is that Tu Reviens will offer her choices that can ultimately determine the course of her untethered life. But at Tu Reviens, every choice comes with a reward, or a price.

Odd & True
Cat Winters

Don't judge a book by its cover, BUT LOOK AT THIS COVER. Super creepy and historically interesting novel about family, trauma, monsters, and sisters. 

One Dark Throne
by Kendare Blake

This sequel to Three Dark Crowns seems to ramp up the intensity between these three sisters vying for the throne, and trying to figure out their powers. Darker, twistier, and totally unpredictable.

Star Wars: Leia, Princess of Alderaan
by Claudia Gray

A novel about what makes a young princess decide to join a rebellion, from acclaimed YA author Claudia Gray.

There's Someone Inside Your House
by Stephanie Perkins

Stephanie Perkins, who has basically perfected the teen romance genre (Anna and the French Kiss-- swoon) turns to horror in this suspensful homage to classic teen slasher stories. It looks SO FUN.

by Marie Lu

A teenage coder hacks her way into an ultra-popular international virtual reality game, and uncovers a sinister plot. A fast-paced, glittery sci-fi from a beloved author.

You Bring the Distant Near
Mitali Perkins

Voices of teen girls across generations of an Indian-American family combine in what sounds like a warm, funny, epic novel with a ton of heart.
