Teens Read Spring Preview

by Megan
December 08, 2014

Last Saturday, we met in person (and virtually) with a crack team of caffeinated bloggers for a sneak peek at some amazing YA titles on the horizon for Spring 2015. Several (most) of us present likely hadn’t started our Christmas shopping, but the amount of excitement on hand for these Spring titles months away still put any holiday concerns to shame. There were treats, squeals, and overall giddy anticipation. Here are some of the highlights...

 

Title that elicited the biggest freakout:

Fairest by Marisa Meyer

There was a genuine Fairest freakout when we discussed this title; stampede for the book is imminent.

 

Science Fiction/Fantasy titles that elicited tribute volunteers in exchange for ARCs:

Ice Kissed by Amanda Hocking

The Novice by Taran Matharu

Becoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

The Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson

Public Enemies by Ann Aguirre

Bell Weather by Dennis Mahoney

 

Titles that caused spontaneous shrieks/squeals of excitement:

From the Notebooks of a Middle-School Princess by Meg Cabot

Elena Vanishing by Elena Dunkle & Clare Dunkle

Joyride by Anna Banks

One Thing Stolen by Beth Kephart (THAT COVER!)

The Revelation of Louisa May (book nerds + bookish historical themes = !!!!!)

Sweet by Emmy Laybourne

Devoted by Jennifer Mathieu

Love Fortunes and Other Disasters by Kimberly Karalius

Delicate Monsters by Stephanie Kuehn

Weightless by Sarah Bannan

 

Titles that generated the most spontaneous singing:

Jesse’s Girl by Miranda Kenneally (Go ahead. Try not to burst into song with this one.)

The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak

 

Titles with the most maple-syrup covered Canuck love:

Some Kind of Normal by Juliana Stone

The Truth About Us by Janet Gurtler

SuperMutant Magic Academy by Jillian Tamaki

Lola Carlyle’s 12-Step Romance by Danielle Younge-Ullman

 

Thrillers, horror, and other heart-rate-increasing titles that left some presenters (Melissa, I’m looking at you) feeling a little faint:

The Forgetting by Nicole Maggi

The Escape by Hannah Jayne

The Suffering by Rin Chupeco

Gone Too Far by Natalie D. Richards
