So, YA Travelogues took us to San Diego for almost a week and then on a 5 hour road trip that should have taken us about 2 hours on Friday (more on both later this week).  In the meantime, we missed the SERIOUS business of YA cover reveals and news.  Soooo…Let’s. Get. Busy.

We LOVE Melinda Salisbury’s Sin-Eater’s Daughter series, so were thrilled to see that The Scarecrow Queen cover was revealed at YALC this weekend.

Expected publication:  2017 (really, is that the best you can do?!?  We need firm dates!)

In news so excited we’re going to burst, one of our favorites, Becky Albertalli, will be publishing a book that takes place in the Simon universe!  Ahhhhhh!

After the painstaking research it required to put this week’s edition in one sitting, I PROMISE to keep it going when on vacation, even if posts are smaller.  Hope you enjoyed adding to your TBR stack!  See you again next week!
