Waiting On Wednesday: HarperCollins Fall 2015 Catalog

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking The Spine in which upcoming, eagerly anticipated releases are highlighted on the blog.

This week, I've chosen to feature a few picks from the HarperCollins Fall 2015 Catalog:

Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson
Date: September 22, 2015
Add to Goodreads

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.
Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.

Okay, so. I haven't actually read Rae Carson's Fire and Thorns Trilogy yet, please forgive me!! BUT it's because I'm currently working to finish off some other series first before I start in on a new one. From what I can tell though, I KNOW I'm going to love the Fire and Thorns Trilogy and I have a pretty good feeling about Walk on Earth a Stranger, too!


The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Date: October 6, 2015
Add to Goodreads

What if you aren’t the Chosen One?

The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death?

What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again.

Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.

Even if your best friend is worshiped by mountain lions.

Woohoo, new Patrick Ness!! I will read anything that man writes, he is just so brilliant! And his new book, The Rest of Us Just Live Here sounds super interesting. AND apparently its cover GLOWS IN THE DARK!!


A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
Date: October 6, 2015
Add to Goodreads

Grace Mae knows madness.
She keeps it locked away, along with her voice, trapped deep inside a brilliant mind that cannot forget horrific family secrets. Those secrets, along with the bulge in her belly, land her in a Boston insane asylum.
When her voice returns in a burst of violence, Grace is banished to the dark cellars, where her mind is discovered by a visiting doctor who dabbles in the new study of criminal psychology. With her keen eyes and sharp memory, Grace will make the perfect assistant at crime scenes. Escaping from Boston to the safety of an ethical Ohio asylum, Grace finds friendship and hope, hints of a life she should have had. But gruesome nights bring Grace and the doctor into the circle of a killer who stalks young women. Grace, continuing to operate under the cloak of madness, must hunt a murderer while she confronts the demons in her own past.

SO obsessed with this cover! I mean, what the heck is going on there?! I'm intrigued to say the least. A Madness So Discreet seems like it would make a great Hallowe'en read!


How about you? Are you waiting on any of these HarperCollins Fall 2015 reads? Are there any upcoming books from the HarperCollins Fall 2015 Catalog that I didn't include here that you feel I should add to my list?

  5. Yes to all of these! I loved Rae Carson's Fire and Thorns series so very excited for her new book. Don't worry about not having read her work though because I have to confess...I've never read a Patrick Ness book. I know! It's terrible. But I do love the sound of The Rest of Us Just Live Here, so maybe I'll make that my first one! And A Madness so Discreet definitely sounds like it'd be perfect for Halloween - great picks! :)

  10. YES! These three books are also on my fall TBR. I think I'm most excited about Walk on Earth a Stranger because it's a Western with fantasy elements but A Madness So Discreet sounds really dark and I'm pretty excited about that.

  13. I am definitely excited for Walk on Earth a Stranger (I've only read the first Fire and Thorns book but, like you, know that I'm going to love that series and this new one). I *may* make The Rest of Us Just Live Here my first Ness book. Not sure if that's a good idea, though, let me know if I should start somewhere else! I do love that cover for A Madness So Discreet, but I may wait for reviews to see how scary it is haha.

    1. Oh, I don't know, I figure any of his would be a good place to start! I think he displays his writing skills quite nicely in all of his books :) And yes, I do hope A Madness So Discreet is ACTUALLY scary.

  20. Don't feel bad, I haven't read Fire and Thorn either - even though I want to (do you own it, we could buddy read the first book too) - but I got a copy of Walk on Earth a Stranger at BEA so I'm hoping to dig in to SOMETHING Carson sometime soon :) I missed out on The Rest of Us Just Live Here at BEA due to scheduling conflicts but I got an eARC so I'll be reading my second Ness book soon (I hope!) Oh and this is the first time I've seen A Madness So Discreet but yeah, that cover is GORGEOUS. It sounds a little bit creepy...as in, maybe too creepy for moi but I'll reserve judgement until the reviews start coming in to see if scaredy-cat me can deal O.O Lovely picks^^

  24. So basically all the awesome books ahaha. I've only read A Madness So Discreet so far (it was awesome!) but I can't wait to read the other two as well - I'm sure they'll be awesome.

  25. That Patrick Ness one, Aylee. Oh my. I've never read Ness before, although I've tried a couple of times, but this one- it looks amazing (GLOW. IN. THE. DARK. COVER. WUT.) and sounds glorious and I'm pretty sure I'll end up preordering it just because I already feel intently passionate about it.
    YAY! xx
