After my September debacle, I yet again promised to be more consistent for cover reveals (which I know I promise every other month or so when everything falls apart).  But, while I was surprised to have almost 40 cover reveals in the entire month of September, there HAVE BEEN ALMOST 40 IN JUST THE FIRST HALF OF OCTOBER!  So get comfortable, grab a cup of coffee and open up your Goodreads in another tab, your TBR is about to get a HUGE helping of AWESOME.

The Hate U Give by Angela Thomas (Just a little background on this book:  An unheard of 13-house auction for publishing rights landed this book with Balzer + Bray.  A movie is already under development with George Tillman, Jr. set to direct and Amandla Stenberg in the starring role.  If that isn’t enough, DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, publication date was moved up 4 MONTHS).  Mark my words, this is THE buzz book of 2017 right here.

For those on the other side of the pond, Angie even gave us the UK cover on her blog, plus UK release date information.

Expected Publication:  February 28, 2017

Goodreads, but just go ahead and just pre-order this one now.  Save yourself a step.
