Book Watch: Releasing This Week #116

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 March 19th-March 25th that I have pre-ordered.


Clockwork Princess


CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by Cassandra Clare will be released in the U.S. on March 19, 2013 in hardcover, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Margaret K. McElderry Books, the print edition is 592 pages.

CLOCKWORK PRINCESS is the third and final book in the author’s The Infernal Devices series.


I am so unbelievably excited and incredibly sad that CLOCKWORK PRINCESS is releasing this week. I wish this series was a six-book series like The Mortal Instruments as I absolutely adore Tessa, Jem and Will and I don’t want their story to end so quickly.

But I cannot wait to find out just how it ends. Even if I will be utterly heartbroken when I reach that final page. I am just so curious as to what the dangers they’ll face will be, just who will survive and just who will be left with a broken heart.

I am also so curious to find out if my theory is correct, if what I’ve suspected is in fact true, and what it means for the characters if it is.

With all the “Will” name-drops in CITY OF FALLEN ANGELS and CITY OF LOST SOULS, I am more anxious than ever to see what his fate is. I am just so glad I don’t have much longer to wait.

And while I could go on and on about this amazing series, as I did spotlight it for my Book Watch post I will stop now. But I am so very tempted to click the link in that post to the chapter one excerpt which was recently revealed.

I suppose if my Kindle copy doesn’t download at Monday Midnight I will give in and click it. Because I really don’t think I’ll be able to wait much longer than that to start reading.

17 and Gone


17 & GONE by Nova Ren Suma will be released in the U.S. on March 21, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Dutton Juvenile, the print edition is 320 pages.


I am so very excited to read 17 & GONE by Nova Ren Suma when it releases later this week. I absolutely loved her book IMAGINARY GIRLS and I cannot wait to read this story about the missing girls.

If it’s even half as haunting as that other book by the author, or written just as beautifully, I know I’ll be wowed.

I cannot wait to meet Lauren and find out why the missing girls are speaking to her. I cannot wait to discover just how she can help them. And I am hopeful that she is not next in line to go missing.

The description calls this book complex and rich and I am so glad to finally be able to dive into another one of this author’s amazing stories. One that I will definitely be taking a peek at when it downloads on Thursday and one I hope to be able to read very soon thereafter.

Pretty Girl 13


PRETTY GIRL-13 by Liz Coley will be released in the U.S. on March 19, 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 Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, the print edition is 352 pages.


I traded for an early copy of PRETTY GIRL-13 but hadn’t had the chance to read it. But I am so thrilled that it’s releasing this week and I’ll have it happily residing on my Kindle on Tuesday.

I was intrigued by the title but was sold by the description which called this book “a disturbing and powerful psychological mystery.” I am very interested in meeting Angie and learning about how she uncovers the truth behind those missing three years of her life.

And I’m curious to find out whether she does accept the truth or tries to keep it buried, hidden by her “alters.”

While this book does sound incredibly dark and emotionally difficult, the description does talk of “courage, hope, and love” so I am eager to find out just how Angie copes with, and possibly overcomes, the horrors she’s had to endure.

Other Books of Note

Fox Forever

TIGER (Dark Eyes #2) by William Richter

I only have three books pre-ordered this week, at least I think I do. I suppose I’ll find out for sure on Tuesday like I did last week.

And the three books that are releasing this week are ones I’m so stoked to finally have in my hands. Well, technically, on my eReader, though I’m so very tempted to buy CLOCKWORK PRINCESS in print as that cover is all sorts of amazing.

While I don’t have FOX FOREVER pre-ordered I will be buying it eventually as I have the first two books in the series on my Kindle and I know I’ll want to complete my collection someday. Someday soon.

I’m just glad that these past two weeks have not put a huge dent in my wallet as I know that in the next couple of weeks I have more than a few books on order. And I’m trying so very, very hard not to overspend. But books are my greatest weakness.


I hope you are just as excited as I am for the final book in The Infernal Devices series. And if you have any other awesome books you’re dying to add to your collection this week that I don’t have listed I’d love to know.

Happy book buying and reading!

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!
