- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard – This one is getting some high praise already, which could be detrimental, but it sounds good enough that I’m hoping it’s all true!
- The Girl of Midnight by Melissa Grey – The cover got me…it’s gorgeous. Summary reminds me a bit of The Daughter of Smoke & Bones, and it seems to be catered towards Grisha fans. So I’m definitely curious about this one.
- My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga – This one deals with depression, and it sounds like something that’s going to make me cry but I’m curious to see how Jasmine handles the topic of suicide and depression.
- City of Savage by Lee Kelly – A dystopian set in Manhattan and it’s a stand alone! Also there are times when I see a YA book with a really detailed well written summary and I just have to have it based on that.
- None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio – The main character discovers that she is Intersex and must comes to terms with it, while dealing with the stigma from her school. I don’t think I’ve seen a YA book dealing with Intersex before. We need more books like this, and I’m hoping this is as good as it sounds.
- Unspeakable by Abbie Rushton – This one doesn’t say much about the plot in the summary, so I’m pretty curious about why Megan is refusing to speak.
- An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – Epic Fantasy? YES! Kick Ass girl? Double YES! I need this!
- Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli – This sounds so good! Simon is huding his sexuallity and when an email goes to the wrong person he finds himself being blackmailed.
- Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer – A contemporary friendship novel with a time travel twist! Also that cover!
- Made You Up by Francesca Zappia – A YA contemporary novel dealing with schizophrenia
