Simon and Schuster's Big Book Brunch

I had an amazing time at Simon and Schuster's Big Book Brunch last weekend! It was a great opportunity to hear about their amazing upcoming books and meet up with lovely people. This is my (slightly belated) rundown of their YA titles that I'm the most excited about. Thank you to Chelley Toy and Olivia Gacka for the candid photos!

There were so many great titles that I've included covers, quick blurbs and links below so you can check them out. Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconsis is out now and the movie, starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson, will be released in March. It sounds like a perfectly heart-wrenching story of two teens suffering from cystic fibrosis who can't get within a few feet of each other without risking their lives.

Next up is my current, brilliant read Slayer by Kiersten White. It's set in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer after season 7.

We then got to hear from Laura Bates, best known for her non-fiction and the Everyday Sexism Project, about her debut YA The Burning. It sets a devastating modern-day story of sexting against the historical story of a witch trial and I can't wait to read it!

Amy McCulloch was also there to tell us about Unleashed, the much anticipated sequel to Jinxed. I love this series so much and it was great to hear from Amy about her time as a kid participating in science fairs. We also got to hear an exclusive extract from the beginning of the book and it was fantastic! I don't know how I'll wait until it comes out in August.

Below are other amazing Simon and Schuster titles that are coming soon.

        Out now!                           May                              April                                

Thank you Simon and Schuster for inviting us to your gorgeous offices and for telling us all about the lovely books! I can't wait to read them.
