Enders by Lissa Price
Delacorte || January 7th
Although already published, I haven't had the chance to get my hands on it yet! I really enjoyed Starters, which I picked up at the 2013 Boston Book Festival after seeing a panel with the author. I love a good sci-fi YA and need to read the conclusion of Callie's story!
Vitro by Jessica Khoury
Rozorbill || January 14th
Yes, technically it's already out, and technically I've already read it (I was lucky enough to get an e-galley through Penguin's First to Read program). But I saw Jessica Khoury speak at the 2013 Boston Book Festival (she was adorable and super fun) and I can tell you this is just as inventive as her first book, Origins, so it deserves a mention.
The Here and Now by Ann Brashares
Delacorte || April 8th
I'll be honest--this one made the list for purely sentimental reasons. It's Ann Brashares first teen book since the conclusion of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Need I say more?
City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
Margaret K. McElderry || May 27th
Another full disclosure--I haven't read any book in this series! It's been on my list for ages, and with the final book coming out so soon, it's high time I hit the library and pick up the first five books. But I can't help but be excited about the final installment of such a well-known and well-loved series :)
Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray
Little, Brown || August 5th
I am a Libba Bray fanatic. A Great and Terrible Beauty remains one of my favorite books to this day, and I have bought several books solely because Libba Bray wrote short stories for them. I actually only started The Diviners today...but I have a good seven months before the sequel comes out.
