Book Watch: Releasing This Week #56

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 January 24th-January 30th that I have pre-ordered.


Everneath by Brodi Ashton will be released in the U.S. on January 24, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Published by Balzer + Bray, an imprint of HarperCollins, the print edition is 384 pages.

Everneath is the first book in a new series of the same name by author Brodi Ashton.

Everneath is one of the books that can be chosen for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi at


All I can say is… Yay! Finally! I can’t wait to own this book again. I’ve missed it so much. And I will be reading it again as soon as possible. It downloads on Monday night, but I’ll be picking up the hardcover at Barnes & Noble this week. I can’t not own the print edition. The cover is so pretty.

As I’ve already reviewed Everneath and talked about it endlessly in my Book Watch post, I don’t think I should say too much more here. But I will say again that this book is AWESOME.

Brodi Ashton has created an exciting new world, one that I can’t wait to read about again in the next installment in the series. She has created three very amazing characters that I can’t wait to follow into their next set of challenging situations. And she’s left me in tatters with the way she ended this book.

Everneath has everything that will captivate readers – a love story, tension, suspense, heartbreak, danger and an incredibly inventive paranormal world.

Okay, I’ll stop. But this is one of my favorite reads since I started blogging.

Havoc by Jeff Sampson will be released in the U.S. on January 24, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Published by Balzer + Bray, an imprint of HarperCollins, the print edition is 352 pages.

Havoc is the second book in the Deviants series by author Jeff Sampson.


When I heard about Vesper last year, I couldn’t wait to get it. It sounded so super cool. I wanted desperately to find out just what was happening to Emily, exactly what she and her fellow students were turning into and what it could possibly mean to be a “Deviant.”

Of course, it is still on my reading pile, but that does not mean I could stop myself from pre-ordering the sequel. I still think it sounds awesome, so I can’t wait for it to join Vesper as part of my permanent collection.

I’m still intrigued about these characters and this world. And although I won’t read the description to Havoc, I just love the title of this book and can’t wait to finally get a chance to read this series. Which I plan on doing really, really soon.

Forbidden by Syrie James and Ryan M. James will be released in the U.S. on January 24, 2012 in paperback and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Published by HarperTeen, the print edition is 416 pages.


I received an ARC of Forbidden awhile back through a trade. I thought the cover was beautiful and the title intrigued me. And then I read the description. I fell in love with the sound of this book so I added it to my pre-orders.

While I did not yet get a chance to read the ARC, I still plan on reading this book in the very near future. Just the first two lines of the description captivated me: “She should not exist. He should not love her.” Yeah, that got me right away.

I want to meet Claire Brennan, to find out just why she and her mom have been constantly on the move. I want to discover just what the psychic visions are that she’s having and find out if she really is in danger.

And I want to meet Alec MacKenzie, who is some sort of an angelic watcher according to the description.

I am a huge fan of angel stories. And this one, which is about forbidden love and something perhaps more sinister, sounds like it will be seriously awesome.

I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed for a happy ending. I just wish I could have read it before release and already have an answer to that question.

The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe will be released in the U.S. on January 24, 2012 in hardcover, audio and eBook formats.

It is currently available online to pre-order in all formats at Amazon and in hardcover and eBook formats at Barnes & Noble.

Published by Hyperion Books for Children, a division of Disney, the print edition is 320 pages.


This book sounds so freaking fantastic. I actually heard about it when I was putting together my trailers post and the trailer piqued my curiosity so much so that I ended up pre-ordering it.

I hadn’t heard about this book before, though I’m not sure why because it just sounds so awesome. Maybe it was the cover that just didn’t catch my eye. I’m not the biggest fan of all that yellow.

But when I headed over to Goodreads to link the book for this post and caught a peek at the description, it completely sold me and I just knew I made the right choice by ordering it. Now, though, I am officially dying to read this book.

It was the opening lines of the description that say everything that needs to be said. I didn’t need to read any more about Kaelyn, the deadly virus, the quarantine or the fight for survival.

It starts with an itch you just can’t shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you’ll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.

And then you’re dead.

Enough said. Right? I couldn’t say it any better. I have got to figure out a way to sneak this book onto the pile in the next week or two. I just have to.

…Oh, and apparently it’s the first book in a new series. Even more WIN!


UPDATE: Yes, I completely forgot about two books that I had two books pre-ordered this week. Thankfully Amazon downloaded them to my Kindle yesterday as a reminder. They are…

I am glad that it’s a bit slower of a release week this week. And it would have been only three books on the pile, but when looking at trailers the other week I discovered The Way We Fall and just had to pre-order it.

Fortunately I already read Everneath, but as I plan on re-reading it a few times it is technically still a book on the pile.

I will most likely buy Life Eternal since I already own Dead Beautiful, but I’m really trying not to buy sequels unless I’ve already read the first book and know that I do, in fact, love it. But it’s not easy. I just had to order Havoc.


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!
