There are loads of exciting books that are due for release in early 2016! A very lucky me has managed to get my hands on a few of them! I’m already excited for others to read them and join in on the excitement of these incredible novels! So during the first few months of the brand new year, keep your eyes peeled for these titles!
Changers by Allison Glock-Cooper & T. Cooper
Release Date: 14th January 2016
Genre: YA, Sci-fi, Fantasy.
Everything is going well for Ethan Miller. He’s starting a new school, trying out for the football team and is finally happy with how he looks. That’s until he wakes up a girl one morning. As soon as I saw this book it reminded me of Everyday by David Levithan. Dealing with struggles such as gender change is always interesting in a novel, no matter what the context. When that is thrown in to an extreme situation it’s always fun to read about! In January make sure you find out what happens when Ethan starts school!
Finding Hope by Colleen Nelson
Release Date: March 9th 2016
Genre: YA, Contemporary.
To escape her dull life in a small town, Hope jumps at the chance to move to a boarding school – she’ll even join a ‘clique’ if it means it will give her a new start! The further Hope gets in to her new life, the more trouble its causing. With her drug addict brother turning up at the school gates and her online boyfriend becoming unreliable, who will she choose to save first, them or herself? Finding Hope is a wonderfully new take on the classic boarding school story. So very few boarding school stories are told from the point of view of girls, especially ones with a more serious message. Definitely keep your eyes out for this!
Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard
Release Date: February 11th 2016
Genre: YA, Contemporary.
Caddy makes a promise to herself that her sixteenth year of life will be different to the rest. She’s going to get a boyfriend, lose her virginity and experience something significant in her life. That’s until Suzanne walks in to her life. Suzanne fits right in to Caddy and her best friend Rosie’s group, however Caddy knows that there’s something hidden deep down that Suzanne isn’t sharing with the others. This beautiful novel is all about true friendship and what it means to be a friend when your life is falling apart. It’s a breath of fresh air in the YA genre and a wonderful book to reminisce about being a sixteen year old to!
Camp Midnight by Jason Adam Katzenstein
Release Date: May 12th 2016
Genre: Graphic Novel, Horror
Reluctantly, Skye is being sent to Summer Camp under the strict instructions of her step mother. She has no idea what’s in store for her when she turns up at a very spooky looking hut in the middle of nowhere and is told to go to bed at 4 in the afternoon. Everything comes to light at midnight when she learns that everyone in her camp are Monsters! This graphic novel is absolutely perfect for slightly younger audiences. The art work is graphic and very cartoony and is perfect for the story. I think Camp Midnight will be a huge graphic novel to look out for next year.
