If you’re anything like me, you are the last person to know about new releases and book news. I don’t have a lot of social media to keep up with the authors, and I don’t use the ones that I follow authors on that frequently. To be completely honest, it’s a lot to keep track of all the new releases and things that are going on so I decided to take some of my favorite and (I think) well-known YA authors and compile all their upcoming releases.
Some of the information I got off of posts on the authors’ social media or websites (which I’ll link in this post) and others I got off of Goodreads. I can’t guarantee that I will catch all the stories their working on but hopefully this will give you an overview of what to expect.
The authors I’m covering in this post are:
Cassandra Clare || Leigh Bardugo || Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff || Marie Lu
Sarah J. Maas || Tahereh Mafi|| Rainbow Rowell || Adam Silvera
Angie Thomas || Nicola Yoon
At the bottom of the post I put a timeline-ish thing that gives you an overall look on all the authors and what they’re releasing in case you don’t want to read through all the stuff I wrote.
School is around the corner, and that means new classes and new people to meet. Comparing my schedule with all my friends, it turns out that I don’t have any classes with them. That means I’ll be needing to make some new friends to get through this school year. As an introvert, at the beginning of the school year, I have some people that I have a friend crush on. Then that got me thinking what it would be like if I were friends with fictional characters.
This list does not limit itself to just book characters. It also includes TV show and movie characters.
Do you ever have those instances where you’re reading a book and a character is really enjoying some food and you feel kind of jealous? And then while you’re reading about food, you get hungry but all you want is that food that the character is eating? Yeah, it happens to me all the time.
Also, I just really love food. I mean, who doesn’t? Especially bread. I know it’s super bad for you if you eat too much of it but I love the fluffiness and smell and-
Okay I’ll stop. I’m getting hungry.

“Sometimes pain is so unmanageable that the idea of spending another day with it seems impossible. Other times pain acts as a compass to help you through the messier tunnels of growing up. But pain can only help you find happiness if you remember it.”
Title: More Happy Than Not

My Rating: 4 / 5
ATTENTION: This review is spoiler-free.
With a secret like that, at some point the secret itself becomes irrelevant. The fact that you kept it does not.
