Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay (8/9)
It sounds like a fresh take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. I loved Starcrossed and its take on the story so I’m willing to give this one a try.
Sweetly by Jackson Pearce (8/23)
This is a follow-up to her Sisters Red. Same world, new story. I am willing to give it a go.
The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann (8/30)
I’m really not into dystopians. I can’t explain it but they’ve just never been my thing. Until this year, apparently. It started with Elana’s Possession and now this one has totally piqued my interest. Plus I want this book to do well. It’s middle-grade with a boy protagonist. While I’d love to see YA with boy protagonists (in the ever-raging debate on how to get boys to read beyond middle grade), if we can get them loving reading, I think it’s more likely to stick regardless.
