Coming Soon: The sequel is the thing

One of the hardest parts of collection development is keeping track of all of the series, trilogies, miniseries and more that are published in the YA world.  The very worst thing for a patron and a reader is to not get a new title in a timely manner.  I’m not gonna say that I have ever done that, I’ve just heard that it stinks.  I have been hard at work keeping track of when sequels to the popular series at my library are coming out, and I thought I would share.  You are welcome.  You were going to say thank you, right?  Know a title coming soon?  Add it in the comments.

Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin

Untold by Sara Rees Brennan
The Lynborn Legacy #2, sequel to Unspoken, out September 24, 2013
Do yourself a favor and read this one, funny and Sara loves to kill people.  I’m assuming it is only in books that she loves to do this.  They changed the covers, which is unfortunate, but I guess they did it because the other cover made the book look younger then the actual audience was.
