Book Watch: Releasing This Week #139

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 27th-September 2nd that I have pre-ordered.

Crown of Midnight

addtogoodreads

CROWN OF MIDNIGHT by Sarah J. Maas will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Bloomsbury USA Childrens, the print edition is 432 pages.

CROWN OF MIDNIGHT is the second full-length book in author Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass series. The third through sixth full-length books, currently untitled, are slated for release in 2014 through 2017.

Line_001

I cannot wait for the release of CROWN OF MIDNIGHT by Sarah J. Maas on Tuesday. I own all of the previous books in the series, including the novellas, and I’m totally stoked that this latest installment in the series will be added to my collection this week.

I have heard this sequel is even more amazing than the first book in the series and I’m excited to see what happens with Celaena now that she’s the new royal assassin. The description hints that she’s going to have to have to make a choice. I only hope it isn’t between Prince Dorian and Captain Westfall.

I really wanted to read this book before its release, as I had an eARC, but I wasn’t able to. Though I will definitely be reading it next week as I am dying to find out what happens in this sequel.

The Bitter Kingdom

addtogoodreads

THE BITTER KINGDOM by Rae Carson will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 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 Greenwillow Books, the print edition is 448 pages.

THE BITTER KINGDOM is the third and final full-length book in author Rae Carson’s Fire and Thorns trilogy.

Line_001

I cannot believe that release day is just about here for THE BITTER KINGDOM. I am reading the previous book in the series and hope to sneak this on the pile just after its release this week. But as it is a series-ending book I’m not trusting my ability to say goodbye to this awesome series.

The description calls this series epic, and I couldn’t agree more. I love the world that author Rae Carson built and I love Elisa and Hector.

I hope that this series has a happily ever after ending, though, given just how heartbreaking the events in book one were, I’m not entirely confident about that.

If I can’t get it on the pile later this week, I will definitely try to conquer my series-ending fears and read it next weekend. And I won’t take a peek at this book’s description until I finish THE CROWN OF EMBERS.

Origin

addtogoodreads

ORIGIN by Jennifer L. Armentrout will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 2013 in paperback, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at AMAZON and in paperback and eBook formats at BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Entangled Teen, the print edition is 400 pages.

ORIGIN is the fourth full-length book in author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Lux series. The fifth book in the series, currently untitled, is slated for release in 2014.

Line_001

I am so excited for the release of ORIGIN and can’t wait for it to download to my Kindle this week. I am a little bit behind on this series due to a mishap which involved reading the ending of book three and so I’m hoping that now that the fourth book in the series is out, the element of the unknown will motivate me to dive back in.

I love these characters and the author’s writing style. I am fascinated by the world. And as much as I want to take a peek at ORIGIN’s description, I refuse to, in the event I might potentially encounter another spoiler.

I feel like it’s been forever since I last read about Katy and Daemon and I hope that after things quiet down in mid-September I’ll be able to read both this book and the previous book, so that I can get caught up.

The Beginning of Everything

addtogoodreads

THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING by Robyn Schneider will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 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, the print edition is 352 pages.

Line_001

I am totally stoked to finally get a copy of THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING. I’d hoped to get my hands on an early copy but then the release date changed and so did this book’s title. But the wait is almost over until I can finally take a peek at this story that’s intrigued me for quite a long while.

I am just so curious about Ezra and his theory about everyone having a tragedy waiting for them. His particular tragedy is very similar to someone I’ve known, so I already feel a connection with the story. But I cannot wait to meet Cassidy Thorpe, too.

The description calls this book “lyrical, witty, and heart-wrenching” and if it is all those things I just know I’ll fall madly in love with this story that I hope to be able to sneak onto the pile over Labor Day weekend.

Consume

addtogoodreads

CONSUME by Melissa Darnell will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 2013 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 384 pages.

CONSUME is the third book in author Melissa Darnell’s Clann series.

Line_001

Melissa Darnell’s Clann series is such a sweet and delightful read and I am thrilled to be able to add CONSUME to my collection this week. I had the chance to read this book just a bit early and it was just as entertaining as the previous books in the series.

As I have read it, I don’t want to talk about what happens with Tristan and Savannah in this installment. I won’t reveal just what happens with the Clann and the vampires. But it was a super quick and engaging read and a great addition to the series.

And with all the new YA books releasing this week, I’m so glad I had the chance to read this already and it won’t be stuck on an ever-expanding TBR pile.

div1

Deception

addtogoodreads

DECEPTION by C.J. Redwine will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Balzer + Bray, the print edition is 480 pages.

DECEPTION is the second book in author C.J. Redwine’s Defiance series.

Line_001

I love, love, love this series. I only just recently read DEFIANCE a month or two ago and am going to be reading DECEPTION on Monday and I cannot wait. I will probably switch from the printed ARC to my Kindle copy when it downloads at Monday Midnight so I can read that much faster.

I fell in love with Rachel and Logan’s story and the world that author C.J. Redwine created. Their story is captivating and heartbreaking and when I put DEFIANCE down I wished I’d had the sequel to dive right into.

Of course now that release day is just about here, I’m getting a bit nervous as to whether there is another book in the series and whether it will be that much more agonizing to wait an entire year for that book. Though I’m pretty sure it will.

My plan is to read this on Monday and even though it is a fairly lengthy book, I’m confident I’ll be able to finish it in one sitting, even if it means a late night read.

DescendantCover

addtogoodreads

DESCENDANT by Lesley Livingston will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 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 HarperTeen, the print edition is 336 pages.

DESCENDANT is the second book in Lesley Livingston’s Starling series.

Line_001

I am currently reading DESCENDANT and I will definitely have it read before it downloads to my Kindle on Monday Midnight. It was just so easy to fall back into this story and into this world of Norse mythologies, Mason Starling and the Fennrys Wolf.

I love Lesley Livingston’s stories and I immediately fell in love with the first book in this spin-off series that includes one of my most favorite characters from her Wondrous Strange series, Fenn. After that cliffhanger ending in STARLING, I didn’t think I’d survive the wait for DESCENDANT’s release. But thanks to a slightly early finished copy I didn’t have to wait quite as long.

Of course the longer it takes me to write this post, the longer I’ll have to wait to get back reading. So I will just say that this sequel sounds even more action-packed than the first, I am totally thrilled about the journey into the Underworld and I am super curious whether the ending of this second book in the series will leave me dangling off a cliff.

The Liberator

addtogoodreads

THE LIBERATOR by Victoria Scott will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 2013 in paperback and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Entangled Teen, the print edition is 352 pages.

THE LIBERATOR is the second book in author Victoria Scott’s Dante Walker series.

Line_001

I am totally stoked that Dante… I mean THE LIBERATOR is releasing this week. I fell madly in love with the first book in the series and its adorable heroine and bad-boy hero – yes Dante is a hero.

I was lucky enough to get a peek at this story just a little bit early. And as I mentioned in My Reading Pile this past weekend I will be finishing this book on Tuesday. So this won’t be on the TBR pile for very long at all. Which is a good thing, as I don’t think that Dante has very much patience.

And as I spotlighted this in my Book Watch post a couple of weeks ago, I really don’t want to ramble on any longer. Especially as this post is super long with all the new releases that are being added to my collection this week and the many that are under consideration.

Besides, it’s Dante Walker, need I really say anything more?

Don't Look Now

addtogoodreads

DON’T LOOK NOW by Michelle Gagnon will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 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 HarperCollins, the print edition is 336 pages.

DON’T LOOK NOW is the second full-length book in author Michelle Gagnon’s PERSEFoNE series.

Line_001

I am super excited for the release of DON’T LOOK NOW, the second book in author Michelle Gagnon’s trilogy. While I haven’t yet had the chance to read the first book in the series, I do own it and the novella and I cannot wait to add this book to my collection this week.

This series sounds totally like my kind of read – packed with action, danger, thrills and excitement. And I cannot wait to finally meat Noa and Peter.

As I haven’t yet read the first book in the series I tried hard not to look too closely at this sequel’s description, but I did catch the very bold words “jaw-dropping” when I was grabbing the book’s link on Goodreads. Which made me that much more interested in meeting the characters and discovering this story for myself.

I am still going to try and hold out until closer to the release date for the third book in the series before I dive into these books. But I have a feeling that I’ll only last until October before my curiosity gets the best of me.

The Fall of Five

addtogoodreads

THE FALL OF FIVE by Pittacus Lore will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 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 HarperCollins, the print edition is 416 pages.

THE FALL OF FIVE is the fourth full-length book in the Lorien Legacies.

Line_001

I cannot believe that THE FALL OF FIVE, the fourth book in this series, is releasing this week. I pre-ordered a copy for my Kindle the second I saw it on Amazon even though I’m officially so far behind on this series that I really shouldn’t buy another installment without catching up.

And while I’ve only read the first book in this series and part of the second, I have taken a peek at each and every description. And I’m not going to change my approach for this fourth book.

I love that this installment has all six survivors banding together to defeat their enemy. I love that they’re going to try and “master their Legacies” so that they stand a chance against the Mogadorians. And I am curious to find out whether Number Five’s sign is really a trap and whether the Garde will be able to find Five “before it’s too late.”

The description promises that the Lorien will rise again. It promises that they will not lose the war. I am hoping that this installment lives up to its promises. And I’m hoping to be able to finally catch up on this series before the next installment is released.

div1

The Dark Between

addtogoodreads

THE DARK BETWEEN by Sonia Gensler will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Knopf Books for Young Readers, the print edition is 352 pages.

Line_001

When I saw Sonia Gensler’s latest release, THE DARK BETWEEN, available for pre-order I immediately clicked to order it for my Kindle. In addition to the awesome title and the super creepy cover, the book’s description sounded amazing.

I love the early twentieth century setting. I love that this story is dubbed “[a] supernatural romance about the powers that lie in the shadows of the mind.” And I can’t wait to meet Elsie, Kate and Asher and find out whether it’s a villain or something “otherworldly” that is responsible for the dead body they discover.

I am always totally creeped out by stories of ghosts and spirits, in a good way, of course. And the idea that there may be something more to this story has me intrigued.

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get this on the pile in September, but this sounds like a perfect story to read at the end of October.

Here Without You

addtogoodreads

HERE WITHOUT YOU by Tammara Webber will be released in the U.S. on August 27, 2013 in paperback format and was previously released in eBook format on August 6th. It is currently available to pre-order online at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE in paperback format and is available to order online now in eBook format.

Self-published, the print edition is 252 pages.

HERE WITHOUT YOU is the fourth and final book in author Tammara Webber’s Between the Lines series.

Line_001

I had no idea until the week prior to the eBook release of HERE WITHOUT YOU that Tammara Webber was concluding her Between the Lines series. And while I already have the Kindle copy in my collection, I’ve been trying to list releases based upon their print release date. Which is why I’m just posting about this now.

This series is amazing. I knew from the moment I read the first book in the series that this author was insanely talented. She had such a way with words and gave me a story – and series – that blew me away. I did not expect the layers of depth in her story, I did not expect to make such a strong emotional connection to it. But I did.

I thought it was just going to be a light and fun series, but it was dramatic and heart-wrenching and gorgeous.

I have not yet read this final installment to the series. It is one of those series I don’t want to see end. Just thinking about the fact that I’ll have to say goodbye to these characters is making me teary-eyed.

So I’m not sure when I’m going to be able to say goodbye to it. Even though I am super curious about what happens with Reid and Dori. But I am hopeful I’ll get the courage up later this fall.

As this post is insanely long already I’m going to keep this section brief. Or at least I’ll try to be brief….

I can’t believe I will be the owner of all twelve releases I’ve spotlighted by Monday Midnight. This makes me both excited and nervous about the size of my TBR pile.

And with twenty-one other books releasing this week that caught my eye, I’m thinking I should have budgeted just a little bit more for books this week, as I just know I’ll be clicking to buy a few of them.

While next week may not be as “bad” as this week, I know of at least six books I’m adding to my collection next week already. So it’s very possible I have just as many, if not more, books pre-ordered that will be releasing next week. *GULP.*

Fortunately I have read one of the books releasing this week already, and will hopefully have four others read by the end of the week. But that, for now, remains to be determined.

Anyway….

I promised to keep this short – for me – so I will just end by saying that I hope you have a few books, or more, releasing this week that will be added to your collection. And I hope that your TBR pile won’t be quite as crazy as mine will be over the next two or three weeks.

And if there is a YA title I’ve missed, please let me know in the comments… though I’ll be a little scared if there is.

As ever, happy reading and happy book buying!

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!
