Celine would love to hear your thoughts on the books below and invites you to follow her reading journey over at I Blog, You Read.
This is a pretty incredible time to be a reader of the YA genre. There are so many original titles that offer many possibilities to be whisked away by the wide imaginations of today’s authors. I think I have come up with a wide variety of titles to get excited about. Some great sequels to some pretty original series and a couple of stand-alone contemporary fiction titles that promise laughter, self-discovery and plenty of summer romance. When I think about these next titles it’s quite hard to contain my geekery. This summer will definitely need a strategic reading schedule.

by Dan Krokos
Dan Krokos can pack some serious action into a book. His first book was excellent and had a high level of writing that was like watching an action movie. He’s a master at conspiracy and keeps you guessing while Miranda struggles with whom to trust. This is why I am excited about False Sight. I will be rocking in my chair, anxious until its August release.
Miranda is a clone, designed to be an ultimate weapon. She takes her friendships seriously, so when one of them goes rogue it will cause a divide that will offer a superb conspiracy story. Miranda is a strong hardcore character. I am afraid of what she could do to someone because of Dan Krokos’ well-written fighting sequences. The first book was about trust and the header of the False Sight reads, Forget What You Know. I am so in!
