Upcoming Summer and Fall Releases for 2017


I know that I don't need to apologize for all the books whose covers I could not include below but I feel like I'm disappointing readers, authors, illustrators and publishers who want to see certain books displayed in their graphic glory here.  But many different constraints prevent me from including every single book cover.  I hope that this smattering gives readers a small indication of the many books of youngCanLit coming out in the next few months and whets your reading appetites for the new year as well.  

Here are some that I am anxious to read:
  • Thin Places by Lesley Choyce (Dundurn) because it's a novel written in free verse and it's from Lesley Choyce;
  • The Man Who Loved Libraries: The Story of Andrew Carnegie by Andrew Larsen and illustrated by Katty Maurey (Owlkids) because I love libraries too!;
  • Stolen Words by Melanie Florence and illustrated by Gabrielle Grimard (Second Story Press) because it's Melanie Florence's and the illustrations look both sad and hopeful;
  • The Winnowing by Vikki VanSickle (Scholastic) because it's a new direction for the writer yet I know she can write it all;
  • The Christmas Wind by Stephanie Simpson McLellan and illustrated by Brooke Kerrigan (Red Deer Press) because I look forward to seeing the synergy between two favourite youngCanLit contributors;
  • Game's End by Natasha Deen (Great Plains Teen Fiction) because I need to know how the princess of YA paranormal murder mysteries ends this series;
  • Spirit Trackers by Jan Bourdeau Waboose and illustrated by François Thisdale (Fifth House Publishers) because I've seen glimpses of the illustrations (one gracing the cover of the Fitzhenry & Whiteside catalogue and others on the illustrator's Facebook page) and they are surreal in their loveliness and storytelling;
  • That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E. K. Johnston (Dutton) because it's E.K. Johnston's and it's an alternate reality in which (according to E.K. Johnston's website) the British Empire never fell, the United States never rose and matchmaking is based on genetics (!);
  • Immortal Reign by Morgan Rhodes (Razorbill) because it's the newest book in her Falling Kingdoms high fantasy series;
  • The Brilliance of Bees by Colleen Nelson (Dundurn) because it's a new YA novel from Colleen Nelson (who is coming to this year's Eden Mills Writers' Festival); 
  • The Defiant by Lesley Livingston (HarperCollins Canada) because I need to know what happened to her gladiatrix Fallon from The Valiant; and 
  • Shelter by Céline Claire and illustrated by Qin Leng (Kids Can Press) because I am so touched by the book cover that softens my heart and a book blurb that suggests a story based in compassion and kindness, both of which need to be celebrated and exemplified.

There are lots of picture books, some graphic novels, lots of early readers and middle grade, as well as young adult and non-fiction. Get into a little history, a lot of hockey, some enlightenment and much humour because it's somewhere in this extensive collection of upcoming releases of youngCanLit.  Happy reading!
