There’s never enough time to read everything, but these 2014 fall YA releases are high on our to-be-read list!
11 Fall 2014 YA Books We’ve Got Our Eyes On
1. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas: Sept. 2 – This is the third book (out of six) in the Throne of Glass series. It’s not too late to get started, either. These books are just incredible.
2. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray: Nov. 4 – Parallel universes are definitely an emerging trend in YA science fiction, but I like the spin on it in this fall release. Plus, that book cover is stunning.
3. The Walled City by Ryan Graudin: Nov. 4 – Teen gangs in a fantasy land with a labyrinthine city? Yes, please!
4. The Young Elites by Marie Lu: Oct. 7 – I’m determined to read Lu’s work as soon as it’s published this go around. (I was very late to the game with her Legend series). And, this fantasy post-plague setting seems interesting and unique.
5. Atlantia by Ally Condie: Oct. 28 – Underwater worlds and siren songs. I’m hooked. Plus, I’m interested to see how Condie writes in a more traditional fantasy world.
6. Falls the Shadow by Stefanie Gaither: Sept. 16 – One word: clones!!! Another word: murder! A must-read for me this fall.
7. Clariel by Garth Nix: Oct. 14 – I read the Abhorsen series a million years ago (read: high school), so I cannot wait to dig into the fourth book in this series. It seems like it will read like a standalone, so no worries if you haven’t read the previous books. (But, I recommend that you do!).
8. The Fire Artist by Daisy Whitney: Oct. 14 – I’m a total sucker for elemental/mage type fantasies, so this story with girl who can work fire is right up my alley. Plus “forbidden romance.”
9. Suspicion by Alexandra Monir: Dec. 9 – “There’s something hidden in the Maze.” Described as magnificent, mysterious and creepy, this book has me intrigued.
10. Chasing Power by Sarah Beth Durst: Oct. 14 – There’s something about teens with special powers being set in a modern day setting. I love fantasy worlds, but I also like the dichotomy of real life and fantastical elements as well. And, Chasing Power offers both.
11. Zodiac by Romina Russel: Dec. 9 – An “epic sci-fi-meets-high-fantasy series set in a galaxy inspired by the astrological signs.” SIGN ME UP.
