Click here for the full list of new releases. There are a lot of books that I’m excited for so I’m gonna try to keep it short and to the point.

Been Here All Along by Sandy Hall
For a second, I thought this book was basically going to be a novelization of Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me” music video, but I was so wrong. This book looks really interesting, and I’m really enjoying the trend of having more LGBT+ relationships in YA Books.
For This Life Only by Stacey Kade
You all know how I love sad stories. This book seems like it’ll be a really interesting read. I love reading about recovery; I think it’s such an important thing to talk about because life happens and sometimes we don’t know how to deal with it.
Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit by Jaye Robin Brown
Another story featuring a protagonist in the LGBT+ community. This story looks like it has the possibility to be really funny and really sad. I’m really excited for it.
Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow
Another really sad story; I guess I’m predictable. I think this will me another heartwrenching story about recovery and stepping away from the edge.
In-between Days by Vikki Wakefield
This sounds like it would be a light, contemporary read. I do sometimes need a break from all the sad. This book looks like it’ll have a nice balance of emotions.
Just Kill Me by Adam Selzer
This book just sounds really interesting. It’s probably going to be a lot of fun to read it around Halloween. I don’t read a lot with ghosts and murder, so I’d be excited to add this to my shelf, especially since it sounds like it’ll also be funny.
Scary Out There by Jonathan Maberry
Another fun Halloween read. This is a compilation of horror short stories based on what scares the authors. It sounds like something I’d need to read in the daytime based on the writers who contributed, but I’m excited to expand my genre bubble.
Tell Me Something Real by Calla Devlin
So the cover might be influencing my desire to read this book, but the story also sounds really interesting. I like stories dealing with family drama because sometimes I feel like YA authors forget that teenagers sometimes have zero drama with friends or school and family is a huge part of your life at that age.
The Call by Peadar O’Guillin
This sounds like The Hunger Games with fairies and fantasy. It’s also set in Ireland, and I don’t think I’ve ever read a book set in Ireland, so that should be fun. I’m excited to read about any Irish folklore and mythology.
The Fixes by Owen Matthews
This book sounds kind of like the Bling Ring but without the stealing. I grew up in a suburb north of Atlanta and sometimes I would see these rich kids be so bored and do stupid things to alleviate their rich kid boredom. It’s kind of fascinating to me.
The Form of Things Unknown by Robin Bridges
You know how I feel about books with mental health. They’re fascinating. This book is also set in Savannah and mentions Athens so I dig it. Is it just me or are authors setting books in Georgia a lot lately?
The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee
This book just sounds like it’s a lot of fun. I get the impression that it’s a mystery with multiple perspectives. Plus the cover is gorgeous.

Wired Man and Other Freaks of Nature by Sashi Kaufman
This sounds like a good and different contemporary. Contemporary books can sometimes feel so cookie cutter, so I like it when they throw in something special and unique.

Dessert First by Dean Gloster
Another sad story, I’m sorry. I feel like this story might kill my feelings, but it’ll also make me smile.

Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs
I technically haven’t finished this series yet, but I just love this is being published on Loop Day (you’ll get what I mean if you’ve read the books). So far, I really like this series so I’d love to hear more about this world.
