Book Watch: Releasing This Week #132

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 July 9th-July 15th that I have pre-ordered.

Life's a Witch

LIFE’S A WITCH by Brittany Geragotelis will be released in the U.S. on July 9, 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 Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, the print edition is 320 pages.

LIFE’S A WITCH is the second book in author Brittany Geragotelis’ series of the same name. The third book in the series, THE WITCH IS BACK, is slated for release on January 21, 2014.

I am so excited that LIFE IS A WITCH is releasing this week. I thought the first book in the series, WHAT THE SPELL?, was absolutely adorable and I can’t wait to check out Hadley’s story when it downloads to my Kindle this week.

If I’m not mistaken, this story was actually the first one written in the series and was released on Wattpad. I did not read that version, though. So this updated version will be a brand new story to me.

With rival covens, missing witches and a “fight to avenge their elders,” this installment in the series sounds like so much fun. And I can’t wait to see what Hadley thinks of Asher Astley in this book. I loved him in that first book in the series and I’ve been anxious to learn more about him and his family.

While I won’t be able to sneak it on the pile this week, I’m hopeful of getting it on the pile in the next couple of week so that all (hopefully) my questions will be answered.

Shadow of the Mark

addtogoodreads

SHADOW OF THE MARK by Leigh Fallon will be released in the U.S. on July 9, 2013 in paperback, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at AMAZON and in paperback and eBook formats at BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by HarperTeen, the print edition is 320 pages.

SHADOW OF THE MARK is the second book in author Leigh Fallon’s Carrier series. The third book in the series, AGE OF THE FIFTH, does not currently have a release date listed.

Line_001

I have no idea how the release date for SHADOW OF THE MARK snuck up on me. I had every intention of finishing CARRIER OF THE MARK so that I could read this book immediately upon its release. However, as its release date is just about here, I don’t think I’ll make it in time.

But I am excited that it will be added to my collection on Monday Midnight.

While I was forced to set aside this book due to review deadlines, I had a lot of fun meeting Megan and Adam in that first book. I was intrigued by the setting and their immediate connection and I can’t wait to find out more. I’m just so glad that I didn’t read that first book early or I would have had a super long wait for this sequel.

As I already have a few books on the pile this week, I won’t be reading both CARRIER OF THE MARK and SHADOW OF THE MARK this week, but I’m hopeful of reading them both next week.

Right of Way

addtogoodreads

RIGHT OF WAY by Lauren Barnholdt will be released in the U.S. on July 9, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Simon Pulse, the print edition is 320 pages.

Line_001

I am so glad that RIGHT OF WAY‘s release date is almost here. Finally! I’ve been just dying to read this companion novel ever since I learned of its existence and I will definitely be squeezing this onto my reading pile when it downloads to my Kindle on Tuesday.

I want to see what happens with Peyton and Jace on their road trip. I want to find out whether the trip will repair their romance or whether it will make things worse. I loved Two-way Street when I read it a few years ago and I am so excited the author has written another road trip story with two new characters.

As I already spotlighted RIGHT OF WAY for my Book Watch post a few weeks ago I won’t go on and on as to why I want to read this. But there is no doubt in my mind that I will be reading it this week just as soon as I finish my current read.

Once again I only have three books pre-ordered this week. Which makes me so very, very happy. Because I’m just inundated with books I want to read – books I have early copies of, books I’ve owned for ages and books that will be releasing later this month and next month. So having another quiet-ish week is a really good thing.

Though, technically I had four books pre-ordered last week. I totally missed AWAKEN by Meg Cabot in last week’s post, which a lovely commentator pointed out. Fortunately Amazon didn’t forget my pre-order and it downloaded to my Kindle on Monday night.

Hopefully I didn’t miss any releases this week, but I’m not exactly in the most trusting of places with Amazon’s list of upcoming books and its list of my pre-orders, so it’s very possible there is a book or a few missing. But I suppose I’ll find out on Tuesday.

While I don’t have any of the Books of Note pre-ordered, I am really interested in the Sara Grant book, HALF LIVES, and I really want to check out the ZOM-B series by Darren Shan one of these days. But I think I’ll start with book one.

I did not make it to Barnes & Noble over the holiday week, which means I’m going through major book shopping spree withdrawal. I must have my bookish fix. And as BN.com is open 24×7 I may just have to take a stroll over there this week.

But what about you? Were there any interesting books added to your collection last week? Any new books you can’t wait for that are releasing this week? Or do you know of a book or two that I missed in this post that are absolutely a must for my collection? If so, I’d love to know!

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!

      Oh, I hope you enjoy it! I take it you read the first book in the series? How was that book?

      And I’m going to try and listen to Close My Eyes in the next couple of weeks. That book comes out on the 9th but as it isn’t YA I didn’t list it above…. Maybe I should have.
