Future Slings: The Fall Bue Collection

I like to think of fall books as books that are being released too far in the future for me to pre-order because I might move or get crushed by a bookshelf (occupational hazard of librarians).

It seems that the theme for this year's fall YA releases is blue. Moody, mysterious blue. Which will go nicely with my newly organized-by-colour bookshelves.
The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White (September 10)
By the author of the Paranormalcy (which is a bit of a mouthful to pronounce), The Chaos of the Stars features a protagonist who is the daughter of Egyptian gods. And, Egyptian gods like to keep it  in the family. 

Like, exclusively.

Everything stays in the family.


I'm talking Flowers in the Attic levels of togetherness. 

Should be interesting.
The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (September 3)
The blurb says that this is a tale of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing.

So, you know, Monday.
Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger (November 5th)
The second book in Gail Carriger's steampunk YA Finishing School series.I predict that there will be curtsies, curiosities and conspiracies. And tea.

Lots and lots of tea.
Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan (September 24th)
I admit that I am kinda bummed about the cover (I love silhouettes) but looking forward to seeing Kami Glass, girl detective, again.

Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund (October 15th)

Set in the same universe as For Darkness Shows the Stars, Across a Star-Swept Sea looks to be a dystopian retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel with less wigs.
