Future Reads is a feature on Book Labyrinth where I sporadically post about books coming out in the near (or not so near!) future and explain why I want to read them. This feature is inspired by memes and features like Waiting on Wednesday and Books to Pine For. I hope you'll discover something you want to read as well! (All title links will take you to Goodreads.)
Where She Went by Gayle Forman
Release Date: April 5, 2011
I have to say that I'm late to the game with wanting to read this one. I avoided 'If I Stay' like the plague for a while, because sometimes I really can't handle sad books... however, I decided to give it a go, and I'm so glad I did. I can absolutely handle sad books when they're as beautiful and hopeful as 'If I Stay', so I absolutely cannot wait to see what happens in this one.
Back When You Were Easier to Love by Emily Wing Smith
Release Date: April 28, 2011
I first heard of this book when I signed up for the Contemps challenge, and I can't wait to read it. I love road trip novels, and I generally really like dual narratives, where part of the story is told through flashbacks, so this one sounds great.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Release Date: May 3, 2011
So, the cover's a bit Eye of Sauron-y, isn't it? But I like it all the same. Basically, everyone who has read this seems to absolutely adore it, and I trust my fellow bloggers' opinions. Dystopia, factions, secrets. It all sounds amazing to me.
Flawless by Lara Chapman
Release Date: May 10, 2011
A modern retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac with a main character named Sarah Burke. Love it! Matchmaking, romance, and embracing your flaws? It sounds so cute and good.
Hourglass by Myra McEntire
Release Date: May 24, 2011
Apparitions, secret organizations, mystery, and romance? This sounds like a paranormal/sci-fi that is definitely my taste. And how about that cover? I've seen so many people comment on how cool it is, and I totally agree.
I hope you've enjoyed these future reads! What not yet released books are you looking forward to?
