message 4: by rachel ☾ (new)

rachel ☾ Removed Star Struck. It's been released already.


message 5: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up, Alyssa! I removed that one.


message 6: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Not Now, Not Ever, which looks like it got an earlier 2017 release.


message 7: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed A Line in the Dark, which also got an earlier 2017 release.


message 8: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Feral Youth, which also got bumped to 2017.


message 9: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Final Fall, which is being released in 2017.


message 10: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed several middle grade and adult titles from this list.


message 11: by Channah (new)

Channah Carpenter I cant wait for chain of thorns or lord of shadows any more!!!!!


message 12: by mace (new)

mace The bone season #5 has an expected publication date for 2019, so I think it doesn't belong on here?


message 13: by rachel ☾ (new)

rachel ☾ #13 Do you know which number it is because I couldn't see it (to delete it for you).

Also, removed: The Whisper in the Stone. MG, not YA.


message 14: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Every Shiny Thing, which is middle grade.


message 15: by Shaylene (new)

Shaylene what I'm waiting for is book 3 of the An Ember in the Ashes series! I absolutely loved the first 2. Those fans of the Hunger Games (though this book some may say is quite darker than it) who have not read the first book yet, I recommend you do:)


message 16: by Cindy ✩☽♔ (new)

Cindy ✩☽♔ Marabel and the Book of Fate by Tracy Barrett

I know it is tagged as YA but based on the description and the cover that's been made available it looks a lot more like middle grade...


message 17: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart You're right. That one is middle grade. I removed it from the list.


message 18: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Semper Augustus, which got pushed to 2019.


message 19: by Cam (new)

Cam Added the fourth dimension


message 20: by Mariantonela (new)

Mariantonela I think Blood Fury is not a YA book.


message 21: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Definitely not YA. I'll remove it. Thanks Marion!


message 22: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed The Lost Book of the White, which is adult fiction.


message 23: by Danielle (last edited Jun 08, 2017 11:57AM) (new)

Danielle Chain of Thorns (#1) is a 2021 release
Bone Season #5 (#25) is 2019

Danielle Rachel wrote: "@Beatrice - Done (removed Witchlands #4).

Also removed Legion (2016/2017 release), The Queen of Air and Darkness (2019 release),Chain of Gold (2020 ..."


Chain of Gold now has a 2018 date


Jess (freaks over books) Is Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire on here? I did not see it, the third book in the Wayward children trilogy :)


message 26: by rachel ☾ (new)

rachel ☾ @Danielle: Shivers. I am so sorry. At the time, the release date was wrong. I'll readd it now.

Removed: Chains of Thorns + Bone Season #5.

@Jess: Added it.


message 27: by Cindy ✩☽♔ (new)

Cindy ✩☽♔ Ice Wolves appears to be more Middle Grade if someone could look into that


message 28: by Cindy ✩☽♔ (new)

Cindy ✩☽♔ Aru Shah and the End of Time by Roshani Chokshi has a main character who is 12 years old, so I believe that would classify it more as middle-grade?


message 29: by Cindy ✩☽♔ (new)

Cindy ✩☽♔ The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang is a graphic novel/comic


message 30: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up, Cindy. I removed Aru Shah and Ice Wolves for being middle grade.

As far as I know, YA graphic novels are welcome on the list, so I left The Prince and the Dressmaker alone.


message 31: by Cindy ✩☽♔ (new)

Cindy ✩☽♔ A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer release date seems have been pushed back to 2019


message 32: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks! I removed the Kemmerer book.


message 33: by Alexis (new)

Alexis Bestwick I can't wait for Miranda Asebedo's debut novel to come out next fall!


message 34: by Cindy ✩☽♔ (new)

Cindy ✩☽♔ Untitled (Brooklyn Brujas #3) by Zoraida Córdova is set to release in 2019


message 35: by Cindy ✩☽♔ (new)

Cindy ✩☽♔ Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte planned for a 2019 release


message 36: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks, Cindy. I removed those two.


message 37: by Cimone (new)

Cimone Watson I think LET'S TALK ABOUT LOVE by Claire Kann is new adult, not young adult.


message 38: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart As far as I know, the MC is a little older (college age), but it's being published by Swoon Reads as YA.


message 39: by Cimone (new)

Cimone Watson Oh ok.


message 40: by Cindy ✩☽♔ (new)

Cindy ✩☽♔ Untitled by Julie C. Dao not much info on this, but it looks like the publication date is set for 2019


message 41: by Mariantonela (new)

Mariantonela you may switch Untitled (#1) for A Court of Thorns and Roses Novella #1, since the former is going to be published in 2019 and the latter in may 2018.


message 42: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up, Marion. I moved A Court of Thorns and Roses #4 to the 2019 list.

Cindy, I'm not seeing that Rise of the Empress #2 by Julie Dao is 2019? It's still listed 2018 as far as I can tell.


message 43: by Danielle (new)

Danielle According to Susan Dennard Bloodwitch has been pushed back to 2019 in her newsletter.

" BUT WHAT ABOUT BLOODWITCH, SUSAN? WE WANT THAT NEXT!

I know, I know. 🙈 And I'm afraid it's not coming out until early 2019. While this was not my decision, I do understand why the sales team made it. Publishing is a business; they have schedules to adhere to; and because Windwitch was so late, everyone got behind. That was MY fault, and to regain all the time we lost (because of ME!), the team has had to push Bloodwitch back to early 2019

I'm really sorry. I really, really am."


message 44: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks, Danielle! I moved Bloodwitch to the 2019 list.

Sorry, I didn't realize she had two Untitled projects:

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

I got the second one confused with the first one, which is one on this list lol


message 46: by Fatih (new)

Fatih Turgut Elementals is Middle Grade not YA!!! Please remove it!


message 47: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Faith, I can't find it. What position is Elementals on the list?


message 48: by Fatih (new)

Fatih Turgut Rainbowheart wrote: "Faith, I can't find it. What position is Elementals on the list?"

I think it's been removed but sequels are still in 2019 and 2020 YA Books lists.


message 49: by Nina Brilliant Nemesis (last edited Aug 27, 2017 05:08PM) (new)

Nina Brilliant Nemesis I made my research and Tower of Dawn, and the sequels can't be Young adult if there's this warning from the publishers;
https://twitter.com/ThroneofGlassPH/s...
Then those books are adult books and there are lists for adult fantasy reads. I removed A throne of glass 7 because book 5 and 6 are adult books
There are list for those. Please don't use the lists for self promotion.


message 50: by rachel ☾ (new)

rachel ☾ Removed:

Superman. Pushed back to 2019.
Pour Your Heart Out with Gayle Forman. Quote book. Not YA.
