Book Watch: Releasing This Week #124

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 May 14th-May 20th that I have pre-ordered.

I am so excited that GOLDEN is releasing this week. I have been waiting forever for its release and I’m totally stoked that I only have to wait a couple more days before I can call this book mine.

When I first read the description ages ago, I just knew this story was one of those that would resonate with me. And I can’t wait to get the chance to follow along with Parker as she both tries to uncover the mystery behind what happened with Julianna and Shane and takes a step onto a new path for her life.

I love author Jessi Kirby’s writing and I am curious to see just how she develops this story. I have heard this book is amazing and I cannot wait to find out for myself just how awesome it is.

I love a mystery. I love a love story. And I especially love stories that are tragic. Hopefully I’ll get to add GOLDEN to my reading pile next week, but if not I will definitely be reading it over the long holiday weekend.

I am totally thrilled that THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CURSED is releasing this week and that it will download to my Kindle on Monday Midnight. While I did get the chance to read it just a little bit early it’s one of those books that are a “must have” addition to my permanent collection.

And while I have lots and lots to say about this ahhh-mazing book, as I already talked about it in my Book Watch post a couple weeks back and I will be posting my review for it in a couple of days for the blog tour I’m on, I don’t want to say too much here.

But… yes there is always a but… I will just say that I loved getting transported into the world that the author created. I loved getting to meet Ingrid. And I loved getting to uncover all of this story’s fascinating secrets along with her.

Spirit and Dust

addtogoodreads

SPIRIT AND DUST by Rosemary Clement-Moore will be released in the U.S. on May 14, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Delacorte Books for Young Readers, the print edition is 400 pages.

SPIRIT AND DUST is the second book in Rosemary Clement-Moore’s Goodnight Family series.

Line_001

I had no clue that SPIRIT AND DUST was the sequel to author Rosemary Clement-Moore’s TEXAS GOTHIC when I pre-ordered it awhile back. While I hadn’t read that book by the author, I do own it, and I just had to add her latest title to my collection.

I read her book THE SPLENDOR FALLS ages ago and I thought the writing was absolutely beautiful, the world was crafted exquisitely and I enjoyed its leisurely pace. I was so totally spellbound by that book that I knew I had to buy anything and everything the author wrote.

And now that I know that her latest book is a part of a series, I definitely have to move TEXAS GOTHIC up on the pile so that I can read both of these books back to back. While I have yet to meet Amy I did read the description and I’m excited to meet Daisy.

Mystery and magic in stories always pique my interest. So I can’t wait to get the chance to see how they combine in SPIRIT AND DUST. Hopefully I’ll get the chance to read both books in this series early this summer.

School Spirits

addtogoodreads

SCHOOL SPIRITS by Rachel Hawkins will be released in the U.S. on May 14, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Disney-Hyperion, the print edition is 304 pages.

SCHOOL SPIRITS is the first book in a Hex Hall spinoff series by author Rachel Hawkins. No information is yet available on a sequel.

Line_001

I am super excited for the release of SCHOOL SPIRITS. When I first learned that there would be a spinoff to the author’s Hex Hall series I knew I had pre-order it once it became available.

The author created such a fun and utterly delightful series with Hex Hall and I can’t wait to meet her new characters in this new series. Izzy sounds like such an engaging character and I can’t wait to see how she manages to solve the mystery involving the hauntings in her new town.

While I won’t get the chance to read SCHOOL SPIRITS this week, I definitely plan on reading it next week.

I thought the number of books releasing last week was insane, but this week is so much worse… or better… depending upon how you look at it. While I don’t have as many books pre-ordered this week as I did last week I just know I will end up buying quite a few of the other books of note that I listed in this post.

THE SWEET DEAD LIFE, TRUTH OR DARE and THE RULES FOR DISAPPEARING are already on my list to check out further. And all of them are books I may not be able to wait for their release day before I end up clicking to buy.

I’m still trying to only purchase books I know I’ll be reading within a month or two, but so far that has not worked out. At all. Because I don’t want to end up forgetting about a particular “wish list” book. I’d rather own it and not read it immediately than save it for later and forget about it altogether.

I’m just relieved that I don’t have too many new titles being added to my collection and to my reading pile this week. Last week I had so many book purchases that it will take me weeks and weeks to read them all. At least. With only four new additions and only three TBR books being added to my collection this week, the possibility of actually reading them soon is really good. That is, if I don’t end up buying more of these new release titles.

Anyway….

With all the new books releasing this week I hope that you don’t bust your book budget. Or if you do it’s for books that you’ve been dying to read and own.

And I really hope I didn’t miss any new YA titles releasing this week. If I did, it means there are more than twenty-five new books coming out… and that would totally blow my mind. And my budget.

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!

  1. Jesus christ!! And here I thought I knew a LOT just by remembering that Rachel H’s book was releasing soon…

    I cannot believe still that she wrote a spinoff! AND Here I am… not even owning the last book in the Hex Hall trilogy…

    I stink.

    But wow… Hope your wallet doesn’t cry by the end of the month girl :D
