Autumn Book Buzz...

It’s that time of year again…

Students are getting ready to head back to class (or are already there in some cases), leaves will soon fall from the trees, and my thoughts turn to cozy evenings with tea and a good book. Luckily for me (and you) there are some AMAZING new releases coming up this autumn. As I was lucky to have been able to attend Book Expo America I have had the chance to read some titles that will be released soon. These are ones that I am sure you’ll be excited to get your hands on!

Here are my Buzz Worthy selections for Autumn 2011 (Sept - Dec):

1. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin




What’s it about?

That’s super secret. Seriously, I can’t tell you. I will tell you there is paranormal elements and that there is a sexy boy named Noah Shaw.

Why I found it Buzz Worthy

The story blew me away from the amazing cryptic start to the jaw dropping ending. I am already aching to read book 2. I am not sure I will last until it’s released. It’s an amazing start to what is hopefully a series of books. The romance is super sexy and Michelle is now one of my favourite writers and I look forward to anything she writes. The question “Who is Mara Dyer?” is one I am dying to get more answers to.

Release date September 27, 2011

2. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi



What’s it about?

A girl whose touch is powerful enough to kill people, as a result she’s been locked away. Anything more than that would be too much of a spoiler. Just trust me that awesomeness happens.

Why I found it Buzz Worthy

The writing is unique and unlike anything I had read before. The main character is such a strong female lead character that I loved her immediately. The ending is going to make the wait for book 2 long and horrible.

Release date November 15, 2011

3. The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler




What’s it about?

Two teens stumble upon this thing called Facebook before Facebook was a reality. This allows them a glimpse into their futures, but is that something they really want?

Why is it Buzz Worthy?

The nostalgia factor was high for me. I would have been about the same age as these characters at the time the novel is taking place. I had flashbacks when certain things were mentioned, and it left me with a warm fuzzy feeling. Plus, who hasn’t wanted to see what their future holds? This was done in a clever, and unique way that we can relate to today.

Release date November 21, 2011

And one last title. This is one I haven’t had the chance to read yet. It’s one of my most anticipated books of the fall:

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins



Who didn’t LOVE Anna and the French Kiss. I am pretty sure the answer is NOBODY. I have seen reviews and they have done nothing but make me even more ravenous to read this book. Exactly how long until this is out?!

Release date September 29, 2011 (or October 4, 2011 if you live in Canada like I do)

What Autumn book are you most looking forward to?

  1. I want to shake my fist in frustration every time I see someone make a vague comment about Mara Dyer LOL. But at the same time, I'd be totally angry if I was spoiled! Sigh. Must. Be. Patient.

    I love this list. I am especially dying for LOLA!! That is one of my most anticipated books this year. I'm also really excited for Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, the writing is said to be absolutely beautiful, plus it sounds fantastic!

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
