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.)
Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Release Date: July 12, 2011
I mean, just look at the title. How cool does that sound? Amy is a reluctant witch ranch-sitting for her sister. Ghosts, bodies discovered, AND a hot cowboy.
The Girl Is Murder by Kathryn Miller Haines
Release Date: July 19, 2011
So, this book is described as a "YA novel for fans of Veronica Mars." Me? Sold! Plus it's a historical novel, set during WWII. A teen girl helping out at her Dad's detective agency. And there's a boy! And dancing!
Lie by Caroline Bock
Release Date: August 30, 2011
This one is a more serious read, about a town torn apart by a hate crime. Skylar has to deal with whether to testify against her boyfriend as well as figure out why she would be with him in the first place.
Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs
Release Date: September 6, 2011
The series is called "Medusa Girls": do you really need more than that? But seriously, TLC writes some very fun mythology based books, and I'm sure this one will be great.
Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez
Release Date: October 18, 2011
I've actually read this one already through GalleyGrab, but I wanted to spotlight it before its October release. It's good, you guys! Music, forbidden romance, addiction, & an overbearing mother. Are you intrigued yet?
I hope you've enjoyed these future reads! What not yet released books are you looking forward to?
