Book Watch: Releasing This Week #117

Below are the YA books releasing this week that I am spotlighting for my “Book Watch: Releasing This Week” post.

These are books for the week of March 26th-April 1st that I have pre-ordered.

With All My Soul

addtogoodreads

WITH ALL MY SOUL by Rachel Vincent will be released in the U.S. on March 26, 2013 in paperback and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Harlequin TEEN, the print edition is 384 pages.

WITH ALL MY SOUL is the seventh and final full-length book in author Rachel Vincent’s Soul Screamers series.

I cannot believe that March 26th is finally just about here and with it the release day for the final book in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. I’ve been super lucky to have been able to read WITH ALL MY SOUL last month and I cannot believe this series is really over… or will be in just a couple of days.

I’ve already spotlighted WITH ALL MY SOUL for my Book Watch post and because I’ve already read it I won’t go on and on about it for too long in this post. But I will just quickly say that this final book in the series is every bit as awesome as its predecessors.

It is just as exciting, if not more so, than earlier books in the series. It doesn’t fall victim to a lengthy series’ shortcomings. And it has all the allure, tension, heartbreak, anguish and nail-biting suspense as is expected from a book by author Rachel Vincent.

And the way it ends… well, I won’t talk about that.

But I am so happy-sad for this title’s upcoming release. And I can’t wait for it to download to my Kindle on Monday Midnight so that I can read it again and again without worrying about damaging my gorgeous print copy.

Wasteland

addtogoodreads

WASTELAND by Susan Kim and Laurence Klavan will be released in the U.S. on March 26, 2013 in hardcover, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at AMAZON and in hardcover and eBook formats at BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by HarperTeen, the print edition is 336 pages.

WASTELAND is the first book in a new series by the authors. No information on the sequel is currently available.

Line_001

I have heard that WASTELAND is an awesome book and was told that this story is one that I absolutely must read. So I requested an eARC for review and pre-ordered a copy for my Kindle. And while I was not able to read WASTELAND just yet, I definitely plan on reading it soon after its release.

I cannot wait to dive into this post-apocalyptic world where “no one lives past the age of nineteen.” I can’t wait to meet Esther and Caleb and discover who can and can’t be trusted and what “shady pasts” are affecting the present.

This future sounds absolutely despairing and yet incredibly fascinating and I am super excited that it’s releasing this week and that it’s the start of a trilogy. I only hope that if there is a cliffhanger ending it won’t be too torturous. Especially since I will be reading it soon and the date for the sequel is not yet known.

Dweller on the Threshold

addtogoodreads

DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD by Rinda Elliott will be released in the U.S. on March 26, 2013 in eBook format. It is currently available to pre-order online in eBook format only at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Samhain Publishing, the print edition is 298 pages.

DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD is the first book in Rinda Elliott’s Beri O’Dell series. The second book in the series, BLOOD OF AN ANCIENT, is slated for release in October 2013.

Line_001
I’ve only recently learned that author Rinda Elliott’s DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD was releasing this week and that it was available to pre-order for my Kindle. But I do have it pre-ordered and I am so excited that it’s sharing a book birthday with Rachel Vincent’s book.

I was super lucky to have received an eARC for review from the author this past week and I just had to set aside one of my planned reads so that I could devour this book before its release. Especially since I read the prologue – which was awesome – and I just had to find out more.

As I am in the middle of reading it and don’t want to reveal too much about the book, I’ll just say that my curiosity about the main character, Beri O’Dell, was piqued after having read the description. Like Beri, I wanted to know what she was and why she had the abilities she did.

I wanted to meet Beri’s spirit guides and see just how a “pyro-nervous witch” and an “androgynous necromancer” fit into this story. And I wanted to meet Nikolos, the “handsome Minoan warrior” that knows exactly what the Dweller on the Threshold is.

So of course I had to pre-order this book. And having read quite a bit of it already, I will just say that so far Beri is an awesome main character and I cannot wait to see what else she gets up to over the course of this book and series.

02

There are quite a few books releasing this week, though I only have three books pre-ordered, and only two of them are YA titles. But I am almost positive I will be ordering GOING VINTAGE when it releases on Tuesday and IMPOSTOR, since I own the first book in that series.

As I have read two of the three books I have on order before release day, I don’t think I’ll feel too guilty about adding a few more titles to my “buy” list. Having only one pre-ordered book going on the TBR pile leaves a little bit of room to add at least a couple more. Right?

Though I do have quite a few books on order for the week of April 2nd, so I probably shouldn’t go too crazy. But books are my addiction and they’re not one I plan on curing any time soon.

Anyway…

I hope that the books you’ve pre-ordered arrive on, or close to, release date. I’ve heard there were delays in last week’s shipment of CLOCKWORK PRINCESS, so I hope that if you have a few books on order, they don’t meet that same fate.

A happy book birthday week to all the books releasing this week and, as always, I wish you a happy week of book acquisitions!

As always, I would love to hear what you’re hoping to add to your collection this week!

And if you have any great suggestions of “must read” books to buy that are releasing this week, please let me know!
