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 31st-August 6th that I have pre-ordered.
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry will be released in the U.S. on July 31, 2012 in hardcover format and on August 1, 2012 in eBook format. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Published by Harlequin TEEN, the print edition is 416 pages.
I am so excited that Pushing the Limits is releasing this week. Ever since I first heard about it I’ve had it on my list of “must reads.” I’m just so bummed that I wasn’t able to get it to the top of my reading pile before release. But I have it pre-ordered for my Kindle so I hope to read it in the next couple of weeks.
As I already spotlighted it for my Book Watch post a few weeks ago, I won’t go on and on too much. But I really can’t wait to meet Echo and Noah. Especially as the more I read those quotes from Noah the more intrigued I am by him.
But I also really want to find out what happened to Echo Emerson – why she’s no longer popular, why she’s drawn to Noah when she hadn’t been before, and why she has scars on her arms. I want to know just what happened that night and just what limits she and Noah are willing to push.
I really hope to be able to read this next week so that I can finally find out.
Published by Katherine Tegen Books, the print edition is 384 pages.
Destiny is the fourth and final book in the Immortal series by author Gillian Shields.
I am so behind on this series by author Gillian Shields. I read the first book in her Immortal series before I started blogging and I’ve purchased every book since, but have yet to find the time to catch up on them.
I’ve had Destiny pre-ordered for my Kindle for awhile, as I know I will definitely be reading this series someday. Though I will probably have to re-read book one in order to re-familiarize myself with the world and the girls of Wyldcliffe.
I did take a peek at the Goodreads description as I believe each book in the series is about a different girl. So, I am not too concerned about spoilers, although the description does mention that “everything is connected.”
I can’t wait to finally find out what’s happening at Wyldcliffe, learn how the girls’ stories are interconnected, and see just how dark things have become. And I can’t wait to find out just what their destiny is.
I did not know until I checked out the description that it was the final book in the series, but now that I do I am excited as I’ll be able to read all books in the series back-to-back without any waiting in between. While I won’t be reading all four books in the series this summer, I’m hoping I’ll have the chance this fall.
Published by Philomel, the print length is 19 pages.
Aftermath is a novella in author Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade series.
I am so excited the author decided to write novellas for her Nightshade series. I already own Treachery and I’m thrilled she decided to write another one that I believe is a follow-up to Bloodrose.
While I have not checked out the description for Aftermath, as I haven’t yet read Bloodrose, I’m pretty sure that this story will be a follow-up to that one. It is titled Aftermath after all. And just in case it is, I don’t want to accidentally see any spoilers for how Bloodrose ends.
I won’t be reading Aftermath just yet, but I have it pre-ordered to download to my Kindle this week. And it is the perfect incentive to read Bloodrose as now that book won’t technically be the series-ending story. So I won’t have to say goodbye.
I love this author’s writer and her characters, so I hope to get a chance to read this in August.
The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter will be released in the U.S. on July 31, 2012 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 400 pages.
The Goddess Legacy is a collection of five novellas in the author’s The Goddess Test series. The next book in the series, The Goddess Inheritance, is slated for release in 2013.
I read the first book in the series, The Goddess Test, when it was first released and I absolutely adored it. I own the second book in the series and though I haven’t yet had the chance to read it I have The Goddess Legacy pre-ordered.
I love the way the author brings mythology into the present and I can’t wait to see just what she does with the characters in the novellas in this book. According to the description the stories are about Calliope/Hera, Ava/Aphrodite, Persephone, James/Hermes and Henry/Hades.
While I will probably read Goddess Interrupted before I take a peek at these short stories, I am super excited to read both. Hopefully I’ll get the chance this summer as I miss Kate and Henry.
Hide and Seek (The Lying Game #4) by Sara Shepard
Pub. Date: July 31, 2012
Published by: HarperTeen
It seems to be another quiet week for releases. I only have three books on order and one eBook novella. I am super excited to read them all, but I’m most excited to have Pushing the Limits in my collection.
And while I am adding three new books to the TBR pile, I plan on reading Pushing the Limits very soon, so I don’t anticipate it being there for more than a few weeks. Tops. Which is a great thing for the TBR pile.
I know there are a few books I’ve been dying to read releasing next week, so I’m super glad that there haven’t been too many releases these past few weeks or I don’t know what I’d do with my over-bloated reading pile.
Anyway… I hope you have some great books to add to your collection this week. I’d love to hear what they are, even if they’re not YA releases. I am always looking to discover new and exciting books to read. Even if I don’t always get as much time to read them as I’d like.
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!
