Hey Misfiteers! Today is our very first of our new monthly feature Ask the Misfits! The AtM posts will feature questions from you, and answers from all of us. If you want to ask us a question (and please do!), shoot us an email at yamisfits (at) gmail (dot) com.
Today, because it's the middle of Book Expo America--otherwise known as BEA--we're kicking it off ourselves with the question everyone is asking this week:
Which upcoming release are you looking forward to most?
"To the surprise of absolutely no one, I'm looking forward most to Elizabeth Wein's ROSE UNDER FIRE. I love, love, loved CODE NAME VERITY, and her new book sounds even better!" - Marieke
"I'm really psyched for CHERRY MONEY BABY by John Cusick and TASTE TEST by Kelly Fiore. I'm especially excited for the latter, which is the only debut of the bunch; I've been dying for some foodie YA!" - Dahlia
"I'm looking forward to ALLEGIANT, because I need to know how they plan on ending a series that has gotten this big." - Chessie
"I'm really looking forward to CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE. I've been reading the Mortal Instruments books pretty much from when they were first released so I'm excited to see how the series will end." -Lyla
"I cannot wait for ACROSS A STAR-SWEPT SEA by Diana Peterfreund. I absolutely loved the first book in the series which was a sci-fi retelling of Jane Austen's PERSUASION. So the fact that this one is inspired by THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL? Yes please!" - Jamie
"I can't wait to read NOT A DROP TO DRINK by Mindy McGinnis. I'm an Ohio girl myself, so I love the setting." - Jenny
"I am really excited to read FAULT LINE by Christa Desir. It sounds edgy and heartbreaking, so naturally I'm salivating." - Gina
"I can't wait to read Sarah Guillory's RECLAIMED--a love triangle told from all three points of view? Yes please!" - Megan
"There are so many books I'm excited about, I can't choose! So for now, I'll concentrate on sequels. I just read one of my most anticipated, Michael Grant's LIGHT, which was great. I'm also really looking forward to Jessica Spotswood's STAR CURSED and Maggie Stiefvater's DREAM THIEVES - loved the first in both those series!" - Maggie
"I'm so behind on my reading, but the one I'm really, really looking forward to is Myra McEntire's INFINITYGLASS. I absolutely love the world she's created, and can't wait to see how it all comes together!" - Cait
"I've been in love with Rae Carson's THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS since I read the first sentence, so I'm eagerly waiting for THE BITTER KINGDOM!"- Erica
Stay tuned, because it won't be the last you hear of some of those titles on YA Misfits! But until then, tell us - what upcoming release are you most anticipating?
