Randomness: October Releases in YA

Since today is October 1st,  I thought I would share with you a few books that are coming out this month that I am looking forward to reading the most. 

Coming October 4th...

Eve by Anna Carey

Where do you go when nowhere is safe?

Sixteen years after a deadly virus wiped out most of Earth's population, the world is a perilous place. Eighteen-year-old Eve had never been beyond the heavily guarded perimeter of her school, where she and two hundred other orphaned girls have been promised a future as the teachers and artists of the New America. But the night before graduation, Eve learns the shocking truth about her school's real purpose- and the horrifying fate that awaits her.

Fleeing the only home she's ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treaherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Arden, her former rival from school, and Caleb, a rough rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust,,, and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and       
her life. 

Coming October 11th...

Devoted: An Elixer Novel by Hilary Duff

-SPOILER WARNING (If you haven't read the first book Elixir this synopsis contains spoilers!)

Since Sage was kidnapped, Clea has no way of knowing if he is alive or dead. And even though she has only just discovered they were soulmates, she feels like a part of her is lost forever. What's worse, she can't even turn to her best friend Ben-- because every time she looks at him, all she sees is his betrayal.

But waiting for something to happen is not an option, so Clea is ready for action. Suffering through dreams of seeing Sage with another woman, she makes an uneasy alliance with Sage's enemies and sets out to be reunited with Safe... in this life or the next.

The Survival Kit by Donna Freitas

When Rose's mom dies, she leaves behind a brown paper bag labeled Rose's Survival Kit. Inside the bag, Rose finds an ipod, with a to-be-determined playlist; a picture of peonies, for growing, a crystal heart, for loving; a paper star, for making a wish; and a paper kite, for letting go.

As Rose ponders the meaning of each item, she finds herself returning again and again to an unexpected source of comfort. Will is her family's gardener, the school hockey star, and the only person who really understands what she's going through. Can loss lead to love?

What books have you waiting at the edge of your seat?


  1. Eve sounds so good, there are a few books I've been looking forward to that have already come out and I'm just slacking on reading them! I need to get my hand on The Iron Quill by Shelena Shorts and So Silver Bright by Lisa Mantchev.

    I got here from a comment you left on my blog, This is Your Brain on Books and seriously, your About Me describes me perfectly as well! I'm so glad to find another Graphic Design student who wants to make covers :)

  2. I know what you mean! There are at least six or seven books that came out during September I was dying for and have yet to read. I haven't heard of either of those books, I'll have to look them up!

    Really?! That's so cool that you want to make covers too! I think book design gets overlooked by a lot of people. I haven't met a single other design student who wanted to do the same thing as me. Until now =)

  3. i heard MANY people say elixir is amazing and i REALLY like the cover of devoted (more than elixir) so i have to read the first book to read this! and ive always been a HUGE fan of hilary duff <3
