Below are the YA books coming out this week that I am spotlighting for my “Book Watch: Releasing This Week” post.
These are books for the week of July 5th-July 11th that I have pre-ordered.
Sirensong, the third book in the Faeriewalker series by Jenna Black, will be released in the U.S. on July 5, 2011 in paperback and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in both formats. (Click here for the eBook format from B&N.)
Published by St. Martin’s Griffin, the print edition is 320 pages.
I received a printed ARC from the publisher, read it awhile back and posted my review last week. But I’ve passed along the ARC and can’t wait to receive my finished copy, which I’ve had on pre-order for several months.
I really want to see if the ending is any different from the version I read, so I plan on taking a peek. I still have no idea if this is the final book in the series or if there are other books planned.
Sirensong is the third book in the Faeriewalker series. While it is not necessary to have read the first two books in the series, it is recommended that both books, plus the short novella, Remedial Magic, be read prior to reading Sirensong.
This series is so much fun, with an interesting twist on your typical faerie stories. The main character, Dana Hathaway is a faeriewalker – someone who can take technology into Faerie and bring magic out. In Sirensong, Dana finally leaves Avalon and goes into Faerie. And things, as expected, don’t quite go as smoothly as planned.
Each installment in the series is a quick read, a fun adventure, with a few steamy scenes, super cute boys, and one very dangerous and sexy leader of the Wild Hunt – Arawn, the Erlking. (My favorite male character in the series.)
As I’ve already read this book I won’t say that I can’t wait to read it. But I will say that I can’t wait to get my eBook pre-order downloaded so that I can have this one in my permanent collection. And I would love to get a printed and personally signed finished copy to go with the other two in my collection, as I have major cover love for all the books in this series.

Hammered, the third book in The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne, will be released in the U.S. on July 5, 2011 in mass market paperback, eBook and audio formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. (Click here for the audiobook from B&N.)
Published by Del Rey, the print edition is 336 pages.
I still have not yet read the first two books in the series, but I hadn’t planned on reading them until I had all three in my collection. Well, apparently there are now at least three more books planned in the series, so I better get reading soon.
I pre-ordered this book, along with the first two books in the series, and release date is finally here for book three. Hammered sounds every bit as action-packed and exciting as the previous two books. This installment involves a Viking vampire seeking revenge against a Norse god. He asks for help from Atticus, and they, along with some pretty awesome paranormals, head off to do battle.
I absolutely love the large cast of characters in each book in the series. And I am dying to find out what I’ve been missing. Since the next few weeks are a little slower for new releases, I am really hoping to get started, if not finished, with this exciting series.
Original Sin, the second book in the Personal Demons series by Lisa Desrochers, will be released in the U.S. on July 5, 2011 in paperback, eBook and audio formats. It is currently available online to pre-order from Amazon and Barnes & Noble in all formats.
Published by Tor Teen, the print edition is 400 pages.
I received a signed ARC from a contest I won on the author’s website a few months ago. I read it immediately. I completely devoured and loved it. It was a D.E.A.R. book. (Drop Everything And Read.)
But I had no intention of writing my review at the time, which is why I’m re-reading it now. I read it strictly for pleasure and it was worth every delicious moment. And I can’t say I’m complaining about reading it again, as it’s every bit as good as I remembered.
I’ve had Original Sin pre-ordered since the day it became available for the Kindle. I had fallen in love with Luc the moment I met him in Personal Demons and I knew I had to get my hands on this next book as soon as I possibly could.
As my review will be up in the next day or two, I will not go into too much detail here, but for fans of this series, this is not a book to miss. There are some pretty h.o.t. scenes, and for readers looking for their Luc fix they will not be disappointed. Although, those on Team Gabe may miss their angelic hero a bit.
If you are new to the series, be sure to check out Personal Demons and pick a team. And if you think it’s tough to make a choice between Luc and Gabe, don’t worry. It’s just as difficult for Frannie.
Original Sin is definitely a book to be added to any TBR pile.
I am stunned. Shocked. I sit in disbelief. I only have three books pre-ordered for this week. My wallet walked up and hugged me. Hugged me. I am sure I must be missing something, though I checked the Simon & Schuster and Harper catalogs just to be sure and I don’t see anything.
I am happy and sad all at once.
Happy because there will be one less week of books I’m buying that will sit too long on my TBR pile. I’ve already read two of the three books I’m purchasing, so TBR they are not, though they will likely be re-read one day soon.
Sad because it means that there are fewer new books coming out. I always want tons of new books to be released even if it means my wallet and my TBR pile suffer.
I blame the holiday weekend in the U.S. It’s why there aren’t really any movies releasing either. But I think I can squeak by with only three new books being added to my collection.
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!Read More
