GuysLitWire: 2009 YA Releases Guys Should Get

Current Song: Play Your Part from Whisper House by Duncan Sheik

Good morning! I just posted a little something for GuysLitWire: 2009 YA Releases Guys Should Get -

I have a humongous list of forthcoming YA books that I would like to read. I update it regularly, whenever I hear about a new book with an interesting plotline or a forthcoming release by a favorite author of mine.

Here are a few not-yet-released books that I think GuysLitWire readers will totally dig, books that I read in advance and want to bring to your attention.

This is What I Want to Tell You by Heather Duffy Stone (March 2009)
Twins - one boy, one girl - share narrative duties in this story of secrets, lies, and shifting loyalties. This is Stone's debut novel.
Click here for my full-length book review.

After the Moment by Garret Freymann-Weyr (May 2009)
After moving in with his father and step-family, a young man falls for a quiet, troubled girl. From the author of Stay With Me.

Legacy by Tom Sniegoski (October 2009)
A high school dropout learns that his estranged, dying father is a superhero - and expects his son to take up his mantle. Sniegoski always does a great job with reluctant heroes.

Which of these books sounds the most up your alley?

Oh, I have After the Moment in my TBR pile! :) It's from Houghton Mifflin, right?

Anyway, one I'm REALLY looking forward to is Vast Fields of Ordinary by Nick Burd, which GLW readers would probably like too, though maybe leaning towards the gay readers, lol.

Off to check your GLW post!

Yes, I think so.

This is just a mirror post of that which is at GLW. :)

That release date just got changed to 2010, so I had to remove it. Save it for later! :)

Thanks for the recommendations! These all sound great, but I'm particularly excited about Legacy and After the Moment. It's tough waiting for these to come out, but I've added them to my own lengthy to-read list.
