Book Watch: Releasing This Week #136

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 August 6th-August 12th that I have pre-ordered.

ELEGY is the fourth and final full-length book in author Amanda Hocking’s Watersong series.

I am super excited that the final book in Amanda Hocking’s Watersong series releases this week and will be added to my collection in just a few short hours. I loved the first book in the series and have been dying to get the remaining books on the pile so that I could read them all at once.

One of the things I adore about this author is that she doesn’t go the stereotypical route with her books. Especially when it comes to her series-ending books. The choices she has her characters make are the right ones for them, even if they’re not the most popular with her readers. So I’m very curious to find out what happens with Gemma at the end of this series.

I refuse to read the description for this final book, as it will spoil the two previous books in the series that I haven’t yet read. But I can’t wait to find out whether Gemma will be able to return home and to see how everything ends.

I hope to be able to start – and finish – the remaining books in this series some time next week. So the wait for answers shouldn’t be much longer.

Biting Bad

BITING BAD by Chloe Neill will be released in the U.S. on August 6, 2013 in paperback, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by NAL Trade, the print edition is 368 pages.

BITING BAD is the eighth book in Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series. The ninth book in the series, WILD THINGS, is slated for release on February 4, 2014. A novella set between books eight and nine, HOWLING FOR YOU, is due out on January 7th of next year. And the tenth installment in the series, BLOOD GAMES, will be releasing in August 2014.

I cannot wait for everyone to read BITING BAD. I loved this installment in the series, which I got the chance to read a bit early thanks to Kt of A Book Obsession. And I want to be able to talk to everyone about what happened right there at the end.

As I already spotlighted it for my Book Watch post a couple weeks ago, and I plan on posting my thoughts about this installment in the next couple of days, I don’t want to say much more other than that this was such an awesome installment. It had everything I’ve come to expect in this series. The mystery element kept me guessing. And I couldn’t get enough of Ethan and Merit.

Of course I want to know what happens next, as I’m sure those who haven’t yet read BITING BAD do. But the ending of this book leaves the door open for so very many possibilities, way more than the end of book seven. Which makes me even more eager for WILD THINGS.

And it really makes me want to go back and re-read the series from the beginning. Which is something I hope to do this summer.

Infinityglass

addtogoodreads

INFINITYGLASS by Myra McEntire will be released in the U.S. on August 6, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by EgmontUSA, the print edition is

INFINITYGLASS is the third book in author Myra McEntire’s Hourglass series.

Line_001

When INFINITYGLASS releases in just a few short hours I will own each of the books in the series. What I can’t believe is that I haven’t yet read any of them. Because I know for a fact that this book is amazing. Trusted blogger friends told me so.

And I know that I’ve wanted to read this series and meet Emerson and Michael and learn about the Hourglass since before the first book was released.

I have no idea whether this third book in the series is the last, but I’m thinking about diving in and reading all three books even if there are plans for more. Because I feel at such a huge disadvantage for not having read these books. And I feel a sense of loss for not having met these characters.

I have no plans to read the description for this book, and while I recall having read the description for the second book at some point after its release, it has been almost a year. So I’m fortunate that I don’t remember exactly what it said. Because I much prefer to read without knowing a thing about where the story may lead.

As much as I’d love to read all three books this week, it will probably be a few weeks before I can add all three to the pile. But I definitely plan on reading them before my TBR Pile Reading Challenge post on September 20th. Even if I don’t get the chance to review them.

[END OF UPDATE]

div1

I was so sure I had a ton of books pre-ordered this week. But it seems I only have two YA titles and one UF title getting added to my collection. Of course I may have a couple more books on order, but I won’t know until they download on Tuesday.

And while I don’t have A TALE OF TWO CENTURIES pre-ordered, I do own the first book in that series and will likely add it to my collection later this week. I also think I’ll be adding OUT OF PLAY to my collection as that tagline has me intrigued.

I’ve just been trying to keep my book buying budget down, especially with jam-packed release weeks coming up on August 27th and September 3rd. But I am an impulse shopper when it comes to books. So I don’t think I’ll be able to resist one-click ordering both of these books.

But what about you? Are there any books you’ve pre-ordered or have on your wish list that are releasing this week? Are there any books you hadn’t realized were releasing but now can’t wait to rush out and buy?

And are you a Chicagoland Vampires fan like I am? Are you absolutely dying to find out what happens in BITING BAD? Are you so incredibly excited that the wait is finally over, after having been tormented mercilessly by Chloe Neill’s teasers and comments on her Facebook page these past few months?

If you have been suffering the wait for any of the books releasing this week, I would 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!
