Hey guys! Ready for another book haul? I know I am! 

It's been an interesting month at YABC. Lots of travel for many of our editors means a slow posting month for you, our readers. We promise to step up the posts and giveaways soon! Hopefully this month's book haul will whet your appetite. 

Let's get to the YA books!

We already have a few editor reviews up for some of these titles, and so far so good!
Looking forward to hearing what you guys think of these too.

coming out from Skyscape.
