In case you haven't heard, there's a power struggle in publishing right now:

As both writers and readers, we are not happy with what's going on, but this post is not about debating either side.

What we want to do is simply share some recent and forthcoming YA titles that are being impacted by this debacle. Hachette publishes teen books under their Little, Brown (Books for Young Readers) and Poppy imprints. If any of these interest you, please consider stopping by your local book-seller to purchase a copy, or pre-ordering online from a non-Amazon retailer (so that you can actually, you know, get the book).

The Walled City "Shouldn't You Be in School?" (All the Wrong Questions, #3) Blood Of My Blood (Jasper Dent #3) Dangerous Creatures (Dangerous Creatures, #1)

The Geography of You and Me Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #3) Erased (Altered, #2) Roomies

Ketchup Clouds Reality Boy The Coldest Girl in Coldtown

You can learn more about these and other Hachette teen titles at their Twitter account @thenovl.

If you know of other Hachette books being impacted by this, please feel free to list them in the comments!

I'm ashamed...I am a librarian and I had not heard about this! This explains so much! I tried to order a few copies of Etiquette and Espionage for the local high school's summer reading list and amazon would not ship them for 2-5 weeks! Ridiculous! I ended up going through another vendor. I also tried to purchase a copy of the picturebook Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown and had the same experience. I just went to Barnes and Noble instead! Amazon is a big player in the books game but they're not the only player! Please shop at other retailers folks!

Nothing to be ashamed about; it just kind of blew up this week. But I'm so glad that you were able to order elsewhere and did! :)
