"NOVEMBER 1 // Another installment in the CHILDREN OF THE LAMP series, which is about--you guessed it--djinn! It's fun and fast and adventurous and totally engrossing stuff. I love djinn books! There should be more around! (Like Bartimaeus :D)"
"NOVEMBER 2 // A prequel to the BARTIMAEUS trilogy; once again following the irrepressibly fast-talking, cheeky, and hilarious djinn Bartimaeus. Promises to be full of adventure, action, horror, wit, and high fantasy; I am so excited for this I have NO. WORDS. to convey my anticipation adequately! AaaaAaAaghh!"
"NOVEMBER 9 // Intertwined are a world seen through a pair of glasses; a desolate and murderous world, two boys who get caught up in the chaos and conflict of this place, and a romance with an English girl that threatens insanity."
"NOVEMBER 11 // A deaf girl must get a rock band that consists of an egomaniacal pretty boy, a talentless eye candy, a silent rocker, an angry girl, and a crush a paying job...but she's deaf! Mission Impossible: Part Four! Haha"
"NOVEMBER 11 // Hansel and Gretel walk out of their own story and into 8 other Brothers Grimm fairy tales to discover the truth about their own frightening story. Nice! I always love fairy tale remixes."
"NOVEMBER 30 // Dystopian novel about a girl who has waited her entire life for an assigned soul mate, only to discover she's in love with someone else. Likened to "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Brave New World" for teens!"
"DECEMBER 7 // Part of the beautiful and heartbreaking and epic and enthraling SEVENWATERS series! I can't wait for the delicious twists and adventures and magic and characters that are sure to be found in this book."
"DECEMBER 7 // Quite the interesting concept- in which there are ninjas and vampires that are ninjas and a cool Japanese setting. Rather a breath of fresh air from the recent onslaught of vampire novels! The sequel to Blood Ninja I."
"DECEMBER 7 // A girl is killed at a party, lying in a rosebush, dead, after a hit and run...yet she wakes up the next morning in the hospital. Now she's racing to find the clues to exactly what happened, before the killer can find her again."
"DECEMBER 21 // A girl becomes consumed with her need for the truth about her father's questionable suicide; she becomes entangled with a boy who used to be her father's student. They get too close, and she realizes too late that some questions should never be answered. O_o nice!"
