New YA Releases Coming in 2013

most anticipated in 2013 banner

There are so many new books heading our way in 2013, it’s pretty much impossible to keep track of them. But we’ve done our best to compile as many of the new 2013 YA releases as possible right here — all in one place — just for you. Because of how publishing schedules are released, you’ll notice the list of new releases is a bit scarce for the latter half of 2013 … that’s just because the books and release dates haven’t all been announced yet. And feel free to mention any books we failed to include in our list in the comments section below!

In the meantime, start making your wish list for 2013 now by browsing the upcoming new YA releases below:

    1. I think there are only 4 books in the FALLEN series … the last one came out earlier this year. You’re talking about the Lauren Kate series, yes?

      1. nope…the series by thomas sniegoski…i couldn’t find a release date online anywhere for the last book, so i emailed the author…he told me he is working on it now and it should be released in the fall. 🙂

  2. A wonderful list filled with most of the books on my 2013 to-read list! Thank you for compiling it.

    I didn’t see any Amulet Books YAs listed. There are several 2013 debuts coming from this publisher (which is best known for The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series), including A.G. Howard’s SPLINTERED (January), Sarah Skilton’s BRUISED (March), and my own IN THE SHADOW OF BLACKBIRDS (April).

  3. Awesome list! I’m adding these to my ever-growing TBR list! And here are 2 more for you: Jessi Kirby’s GOLDEN and my THE BOOK OF BROKEN HEARTS both come out in May 2013. 🙂

  4. Awesome list! I’m adding these to my ever-growing TBR list! And here are 2 more for you: Jessi Kirby’s GOLDEN and my THE BOOK OF BROKEN HEARTS both come out in May 2013. 🙂

    1. Thank you (and everyone) for making your additions … keep ’em coming! This post was a beast to compile, and I LOVE having you guys help flesh it out. Because it’s so darn hard to get ALL of the new YA books coming out into one list. 🙂

      (Also, did you guys see? SARAH OCKLER commented!!!)

  5. Charmed Vengeance — August 2013.

    Also, Suzanne Young’s stand alone. The one she co-wrote. I can’t remember the title and I was just petting the arc the other day. ~facepalm~
