Catalog Creepin Fall 2013: Macmillan,St. Martin’s Griffin, Bloomsbury-Walker’s Children & more!

Catalog Creepin’ is a feature here at The Perpetual Page-Turner that was inspired by the “Books to Pine For” feature over at Kristi’s blog and really fueled by my obsession with scouring catalogs from my favorite publishers to see what upcoming books I should be adding to my already-ready-to-topple-over To Be Read list. Each Catalog Creepin’ post will spotlight a different catalog from my favorite publishers and their imprints. I won’t be covering all publishers — just my personal favorites whether they be the big honchos or smaller publishing houses.

 

This time around I’m talking about the Macmillan group (& their imprints including Tor Teen, St. Martin’s Griffin, Henry Holt, Roaring Book Press, Entangled,  Bloomsbury-Walker, FSG, Feiwel and Friends).

 

No Cover But I’m Excited For and Will Update: Wild Card by Simone Elkeles

 

Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney

 

 

Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney (September 3, 2013 – Bloomsbury Children’s- Add To Goodreads)

I LOVED Daisy Whitney’s When You Were Here so I’m definitely excited for this one! It sounds romantic and magical with fantastical elements when a curse that trapped a girl into a painting is undone but the MC Julien, the person who saved the girl, falls in love with her which has devastating results and Julien must choose between love or saving great art.


 

 

 

Hostage Three by Nick Lake

 

Hostage Three by Nick Lake (October 15, 2013 – Bloomsbury Children’s – Add To Goodreads)

Ok this one has PIRATES. Real pirates. A family is on a yacht and suddenly find themselves taken hostage by the pirates and are being used as leverage. Sounds so good!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where The Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller

 

Where The Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller (September 24, 2013 – Bloomsbury Children’s – Add to Goodreads)

You all know how much I loved her debut novel Something Like Normal, yes? Based on that book alone I added her to my auto buy author list. You know that’s serious business right thurrr. I am SO EXCITED.

 

 

 

 

 

After Eden by Helen Douglas

 

After Eden by Helen Douglas (November 5,  2013 – Bloomsbury Children – Add To Goodreads)

I’m getting a little bored of dystopians unless they have something new to bring to the table and I am getting the sense this one does. At least I hope so. It is more of a show of the catalyst to what happens that TURNED a society into a dystopian one and I’m fascinated. There’s sci-fi elements and hints of some time travel of a boy from the future who comes to try to save the world from its fate.

 

 

 

 

 

Relativity by Cristin Bishara

 

Relativity by Cristin Bishara (September 10th, 2013 – Walker Children’s – Add To Goodreads)

I’m a sucker for parallel world stories right now. I can’t help it. I see it and I’m like BINGO…come to mama. Luckily it seems it is a THING for Fall 2013 so I WIN. The MC finds a wormhole wherein she can access a few parallel versions of her life based on things that could have happened very differently at crucial turning points in her life. I CANNOT wait for this.

 

 

 

 

The F It List Julie Halpern

The F-It List by Julie Halpern (November 12, 2013 – Feiwel & Friends – Add To Goodreads)

I’m getting all emotional just reading this premise plus I’m a HUGE fan of bucket lists. I have one. All sorts of them actually. Two girls who were best friends but broke off their friendship come back together when one of them reveals she has cancer and they work to complete her bucket list in her remaining days. I love that this story is about friendship!! WANT. WANT. WANT.

 

 

 

 

 

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

 

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (September 10th, 2013 – St. Martin’s Griffin – Add to Goodreads)
What an aptly named title for her newest book because I just finished Eleanor and Park YESTERDAY and I am officially a fangirl for life. Seriously. It’s about two twin sisters who are absolutely fangirls for a series (like dressing up and all that jazz) and one has started to move away from the fandom scene and announces she doesn’t want to room together when they go off to college. Seems like a great story about standing on your own and discovering yourself outside of what is comfortable. I CANNOT WAIT.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Song Will Save Your Life Leila Sales

This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales (September 17, 2013 – Farrar, Straus and Giroux – Add To Goodreads)

THIS is one that is on the top of my list for Fall. I love books where music plays a part and this looks so great!! It says it’s “darkly comical” and I love books like that so I just am waiting with bated breath. I think it was originally named “My Suicide Playlist” so I’m curious about that element and also about the name change.

 

 

 

 

Tumble & Fall Alexandra Coutts

Tumble & Fall by Alexandra Coutts (September 17, 2013 – Farrar, Straus and Giroux – Add To Goodreads)

AHHHHH. PRE apocalyptic??? YES. I AM IN. I AM SO IN. An asteroid is set to hit the earth and there is nothing that can be done to stop it. As the blurb says, “the only question is what to do with the time you have left?” GOSH that premise just makes me think already. WHAT WOULD I DO?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Which ones are you most excited for?? Any other 2013 releases from Macmillan or any of their imprints that may have flown off my radar?

Replica by Jenna Black (July 16, 2013 – Tor Teen)

I don’t read a TON of science fiction (this has started to change this year) but this one looks SO intriguing. I feel like I’ve been reading a lot of books lately about replicas or clones and I haven’t grown weary of it yet!

Bubble World by Carol Snow (July 30, 2013 – Henry Holt)

Ok, I first saw this because the cover was just  so…bizarre? I don’t know but it sounds REALLY fascinating! Freesia lives a perfect life  on this beautiful island but lately strange things have been happening — random occurances like blackouts, disappearing people and things not exactly looking the same.

Love In The  Time  of Global  Warming by Francesca Lia Block (August 27, 2013 – Henry Holt)

The catalog labels this as science fiction and the description sounds ripe with creatures and some sort of journey or quest. It doesn’t really give much beyond that but I kind of like that — you know, sort of like going in blind.

 

 

 

 

9780802734419

Imperfect Spiral by Debbie Levy (July 16 2013 – Walker’s Children)
This looks kind of intense! The MC is babysitting and the 5 year old runs into traffic to get a ball and is tragically killed. She gets caught up in all the drama of the case but really just wants to be alone and move toward healing. I have a feeling tissues will be in order but this may be the one I’m anticipating the most!

 

 

 

 

9781596437432

 

Brother, Brother by Clay Carmichael (August 20th, 2013 – Roaring Book Press)

This looks like a really great coming of age story. After the MC’s grandmother dies, he finds out some truths about his family and comes to know that he has a twin brother who is the son of a powerful politician and who is in the limelight for his drug overdose. He treks to North Carolina to learn more about his family and the brother he’s never known.

All Our Pretty Songs by Sarah McCarry (July 30, 2013 – St. Martin’s Griffin)
Two best friends find themselves both falling for a cute & mysterious musician. The two grapple with the important of their friendship or the irresistible lure of love.  Jack, the musician, has awakened ana ancient evil with his music and the girls find themselves wrapped up in a mythical world they’ve never known existed. YAY mythology blended in contemporary! I’m excited to see what sorts of mythological creatures and baddies we’ll meet.

The Wall by William Sutcliffe (June 4th 2013 – Walker’s Children)

I’m not one who reads MG too often but this one just really intrigued me. Joshua lives in a town that is guarded by a wall with a heavily guarded entrypoint to keep out the enemies. He finds a tunnel that leads outside of the  Wall and it’s too tempting to not explore what is on the other side. I was really intrigued by the fact that it says this book is “set in a tense reality closely mirroring Israel’s West bank”

 

 

 

 

 

 

No cover: Taste Test by Kelly Fiore (Bloomsbury-Walker Children’s): Top Chef-esque competition meets YA? Heck yes! And I HEAR that it even has recipes in it!

Which ones are you most excited for?? Any other 2013 releases from Macmillan or any of their imprints that may have flown off my radar?
