The Teen Librarian popping in with a special post about all of the new teen books being published this fall and winter! I have a long list on Goodreads, but I thought I’d share the 10 books that I am eagerly awaiting! Listed in no particular order, and linked to Goodreads, or the Alameda County Library website, if we have the book on

  1. Crooked Kingdom – Leah Bardugo. Sequel to Six of Crows and very highly anticipated!
  2. And I Darken – Kiersten White. This is technically a cheat since it has already been published, but I have a copy on my desk and I can’t wait to start reading!
  3. Empire of Storms – Sarah Maas. Book 5 in the Throne of Glass series. Readers who are invested in the series will be eagerly awaiting this installment.
  4. Ghostly Echoes – William Ritter. The third in the Jackaby novels; paranormal detective Jackaby and his assistant, Abigail Rook investigate a cold case involving a ghost.
  5. Iron Cast – Destiny Soria. Con artists. Illusionists. Gangsters. Set in 1920’s Boston. Sounds fabulous.
  6. Like a River Glorious – Rae Carson. Book two in The Gold Seer Trilogy. Book 1, Walk on Earth a Stranger, starts off this intended trilogy, set during the historic California Gold Rush.
  7. The Midnight Star – Marie Lu. Final installment in the Young Elites Trilogy.
  8. Scythe – Neal Shusterman. In a world where disease no longer exists, how do people die? That’s where the reapers come in.
  9. When the Moon Was Ours – Anna-Marie McLemore. “McLemore mesmerizes once against with a lush narrative set at the thresholds of identity, family, and devotion” – Kirkus Reviews.
  10. Bright Smoke, Cold Fire – Rosamund Hodge. Loved her two previous works, Cruel Beauty and Crimson Bound. This title is book one of a duology, and is a take on Romeo and Juliet.

What books are you looking forward to this fall? We’d love to see some suggestions for our to-be-read piles!
