    Book Watch: Releasing This Week #71

    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 May 8th-May 14th that I have pre-ordered.

    ***

    Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock will be released in the U.S. on May 8, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order in both formats online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, the print edition is 416 pages.

    Hemlock is the first book in a new trilogy by author Kahthleen Peacock. The second book in the series, currently untitled, is slated for release in 2013.

    ***

    I can’t wait to read Hemlock. I haven’t read too many books about werewolves but this one sounds awesome. I love the idea that the author calls this a “syndrome” and that it’s as if it’s an epidemic that’s “on the rise.” And I absolutely love the fact that there is a murder mystery combined with the paranormal in this book.

    I am dying to find out what secrets Mac uncovers in her quest to find Amy’s killer. I am curious to see who is responsible and if it’s a friend that was responsible or someone else.

    While I instantly fell in love with the cover, it was the book’s mention of a “maelstrom of violence and betrayal” that made this a must read for me. While I did receive an early copy through a trade, I wasn’t able to add it to the pile before release date, but I will definitely be reading this in a couple of weeks, and most likely it will be the finished copy on my Kindle.

    Until I Die by Amy Plum will be released in the U.S. on May 8, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in both formats.

    Published by HarperTeen, the print edition is 368 pages.

    Until I Die is the second book in the Revenants series by author Amy Plum. The third book in the series, If I Should Die, is slated for publication in 2013.

    ***

    I have been dying to read Until I Die for weeks now. I can’t believe release date is on Tuesday and I’ll have the finished copy on my Kindle. I hope to have read – or at least started – it before then, though, because I’m so curious to find out what happens with the Revenants in this book.

    Although, I hear that there’s a cliffhanger ending….

    I am nervous about Kate and Vincent. I hope that their love story continues even though Vincent’s responsibilities are making that seem impossible. And I am even more nervous about this new enemy that the description mentions. I can’t imagine who it could be and what they could possibly do to jeopardize Vincent’s immortality.

    I also can’t wait to catch up with Jules who is one of my favorite characters in this series. I miss his charming, flirtatious behavior and hope he hasn’t changed at all in this sequel.

    City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare will be released in the U.S. on May 8, 2012 in hardcover, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available online to pre-order in all formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Margaret K. McElderry Books, the print edition is 544 pages.

    City of Lost Souls is the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series by author Cassandra Clare. The sixth book in the series, City of Heavenly Fire is slated for release in 2014.

    ***

    Of all the books in this series, City of Lost Souls has my favorite cover. And the title has me unbelievably curious about where this series is headed. I can’t believe it’s May already and that my Kindle copy will be downloading on Tuesday and my signed copy will be arriving this week.

    While I haven’t finished reading City of Fallen Angels, I am still excited for this book’s release. Although I may wait a bit to read it, as there will be a nearly two-and-a-half year wait for the next book in the series. Which I’m guessing is because of the film’s release.

    As I’ve already spotlighted City of Lost Souls for my Book Watch post, I’ll keep this brief. But the characters the author created in this series are some of my very favorites. And I miss knowing just what has been happening with Clary and Jace, although I did accidentally read a spoiler in CoLS’ description so I know some of what happened. But not firsthand.

    I have not read the entire description because I don’t want to have any more of CoFA spoiled, but I hope that things don’t get much worse in this fifth book in the series for Jace, or Clary for that matter.

    First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky will be released in the U.S. on May 8, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available online to pre-order in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Houghton Mifflin Books for Children, the print edition is 208 pages.

    ***

    I read Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky last year and it was amazing. So when I heard that she had a new release title coming out I just had to pre-order a copy.

    This story sounds like it will either be bittersweet or heartbreaking. And it sounds like it will be a very realistic love story and not one that has been glamorized, romanticized or dramatized.

    I love the character’s names – Gray and Dylan – and I love that they are opposites and that their love wasn’t insta-love and that their relationship is hard work. Of course I hope for a happy ending for them, but I think I’d be just as satisfied if it doesn’t end happily. But I can’t wait to find out…. And possibly shed a few tears.

    Endure by Carrie Jones will be released in the U.S. on May 8, 2012 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 Children’s Books, the print edition is 272 pages.

    Endure is the fourth and final book in Carrie Jones’ Need series.

    ***

    I have Endure on my reading pile this week and I can’t wait to read it. Sort of. I love, love, love this series and I’m heartbroken it’s ending. But the description does say the “romantic finale” will be “utterly satisfying” so I hope I’ll be left with a smile.

    I already miss Zara and Nick. I’m so curious to see whether she can lead an army against the evil pixies to defend Bedford. I’m hopeful the battle will be successful. I’m dying to find out what the surprise revelation is and I really want to know what happens with the pixie king.

    I wanted to read this earlier, but I’d just read Destined and so I didn’t want to suffer two series-ending books in such close proximity. But I think I’m ready now. And for this one there may be tears.

    I have the entire series on my Kindle and I can’t wait for this final book to download on Monday Midnight so that I can complete my collection.

    UPDATE: I can’t believe I didn’t list one of my MOST anticipated reads I was just talking about last night!

    Last Rite by Lisa Desrochers will be released in the U.S. on May 8, 2012 in paperback, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Tor Teen, the print edition is 368 pages.

    Last Rite is the third and final book in the Personal Demons series by author Lisa Desrochers.

    ***

    I am so devastated that I didn’t have Last Rite pre-ordered until now and didn’t list it in this post. It was only thanks to a tweet from Pam at Bookalicious that I was made aware of its release this week. I had been checking on it for ages, but it hadn’t been available in eBook format until more recently and I’ve just been too busy to check for new releases.

    I am so excited for this book’s release. Excited and sad. I can’t wait to see what happens with Frannie and Luc and Gabe. I am hoping things end happily. But when demons are involved I am never confident of that happening. But I am sad to see this series end. I could definitely have used a few more books about these characters and this world.

    I don’t know which side Frannie will choose, so that of course makes me nervous. And I don’t know what happens with Frannie’s powers. According to the description they go “horribly awry.” Which makes me even more nervous. As the term “apocalyptic” is used, I can only imagine that things go epically wrong.

    But what makes me the most nervous is that apparently someone won’t be able to trust the ones they love. And I really, really am hoping that it’s not Luc that gets hurt in the process. I think I know who might be untrustworthy, but I won’t guess here as it’s a spoiler for Original Sin.

    I will definitely be reading this book next week if I don’t get a chance to read it sooner. While I know I’ll miss the characters, there’s no way I can wait to find out what happens.

    Okay. This wasn’t such a bad week. I believe I only have five books pre-ordered to download. That’s half the books from last week. Though I haven’t read any of the books this week, so they’re all going straight to the TBR.

    I’m glad that things will be slowing down a bit over the next month – I think – so that I can try to catch up on just a few “must read” titles. And I’m still thinking of a book buying ban, though I’m having a tough time imagining saying “no.”

    Anyway, I hope I didn’t miss any release titles that I have ordered or ones I should have had ordered. I guess I’ll find out on Tuesday. 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!

    The Trailers: September

    They’re back – after a very long summer hiatus! For those times when you just need a short break from reading. Here, for your viewing pleasure, are a few amazing book trailers for some of the recently released and upcoming books for September.

    I am a bit late, as many of the September books have already been released. But once again, I say better late than never.

    And I know I missed July and August completely, but it seems that during the summer, book trailers aren’t released quite as early or as frequently as they are throughout the remainder of the year and so my July trailers post still sits in drafts with only a tiny handful of trailers.

    But, they’re back…and I’ll be posting my October trailers post in the next couple of weeks.

    Book Watch: Releasing This Week #37

    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 September 13th-September 19th that I have pre-ordered.

    ***

    Frost by Marianna Baer will be released in the U.S. on September 13, 2011 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, a division of HarperCollins, the print edition is 400 pages.

    Frost is one of the books that can be chosen for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi at TheStorySiren.com.

    ***

    Frost was a book I was desperate to get my hands on and I was fortunate enough to receive an early copy for review. And I loved it. It was a total nail-biter and deliciously spooky. The bluish grey tones to the cover and, well, everything about that cover, including that creepy house, made me want to read it. And then there was the description.

    A “cozy dorm,” “mysterious happenings” and “desperate measures” all added up to a book that I knew I just had to have. I hadn’t read too many haunted house books, but this one hinted that it might be something more.

    I knew I wanted this for my permanent collection, regardless of the fact that I received the ARC, and so I added it to my list of pre-orders ages ago. I can’t wait for it to download on Monday Midnight because I had given the ARC away. But I also want to check this book out in the stores, because if the cover is as beautiful as it seems to be online, then I might just break my rule and pick up an unsigned copy for my collection.

    Fateful by Claudia Gray will be released in the U.S. on September 13, 2011 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by HarperTeen, a division of HarperCollins, the print edition is 336 pages.

    ***

    I have been dying to read Fateful for ages and I can’t believe I wasn’t able to read it before release. While I still have the ARC, I have Fateful on my list of pre-orders for download for the permanent collection. And just like with Frost, I absolutely love this cover and I will be checking out the hardcover to see if it might just find a home with my print books.

    I’ve been a huge fan of Claudia Gray’s ever since she blew me away with the twist in the first book of her Evernight series. I did not see that coming. At all. And I thought it was just so clever and different.

    I have talked this book up quite a bit, because it has been one of my most anticipated reads and I did spotlight this for my Book Watch post a few weeks back so, as always, I’ll try not to ramble too much.

    While the concept of werewolves on the Titanic when you boil it down to that simple phrase may raise some eyebrows, when you actually read the description it doesn’t seem as unusual as it sounds. It’s a love story. Possibly an ill-fated one. The only thing certain is that the ship will sink. The questions that remain are whether either Tess or Alec, or both of them, will survive the ships untimely end, and whether the cause is the ship’s destruction or the werewolves that have been hunting Alec.

    Though I will not get to read this before release, I will be reading this very, very soon. For me, this is a must read.

    After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wedel will be released in the U.S. on September 13, 2011 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 320 pages.

    ***

    When I added After Obsession to my list of pre-orders I had no idea what it was about, just that it was a new Carrie Jones book and it wasn’t part of her Need series. I managed to trade for an ARC which I didn’t get a chance to read and sent along to another blogger for review.

    I thought the cover was really pretty, but it was solely my fandom for the author that put this one on my list of early orders. While the title was definitely intriguing, I hadn’t even looked at the book’s description until I sent it along a week or so ago. But it sounds absolutely creepy.

    As a fan of Stephen King, I absolutely love books set in “a cold Maine town.” Some of my most favorite reads have been set in Maine. It just evokes a feeling of isolation, which is perfect for a story involving a suspected haunting which actually turns out to be a demon possession, according to the description.

    But this book is not just about the chilling events surrounding the possession, it also promises romance.

    So, now, of course, I am dying to read the book, though it might be October before I get the chance. But I’m glad to have this one back in my collection this week and to see just how different this collaborative effort will be.

    Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst will be released in the U.S. on September 13, 2011 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available online to pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in both formats.

    Published by Margaret K. McElderry Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, the print edition is 400 pages.

    ***

    I first noticed this book because of the play on the book’s title with that other book, which I have not read. I was also drawn to it by its eye-catching cover. I was hoping to get an early copy, but sadly wasn’t able to. And haven’t had a chance to read it through Simon & Schuster’s Galley Grab program.

    I decided to add it to my list of pre-orders just this past week after taking a longer look at the description when pulling together my Extras post. And it sounds like it will be a really great read.

    Just the idea that the main character, a teen vampire, gets stabbed by a unicorn, makes me want to find out more. What kind of world has this author created where vampires and unicorns co-exist? And how a vampire manages to get stabbed by one brings up so many questions. Questions I want answers to. So, of course, I’ve got to read on to find out.

    But I am also interested in discovering the rest of the story, where the effects of the above incident seem to be turning Pearl into a human, or at least more human-like. And where she begins to fall for a vampire hunter.

    I have to say that it all sounds like such a perfect read for me and I hope to get this book on the pile really soon.

    Perfect by Ellen Hopkins will be released in the U.S. on September 13, 2011 in hardcover, eBook and audio formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Margaret K. McElderry Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, the print edition is 640 pages.

    ***

    I have read only one Ellen Hopkins book before, and I thought it was beautifully written. I absolutely loved how her words played across the printed page and just grabbed me. I have only read the one, as I have been an eBook fanatic for a few years and didn’t think her books would translate well to the format of an eReader.

    I traded for an early copy of Perfect, but knew I wouldn’t be able to read it prior to release and so I passed it along to another blogger who would. And I also hadn’t read Impulse, which is a companion novel to Perfect. So, even though it’s not necessary to a read of this book, I wanted to experience that one first.

    I did end up purchasing Impulse for my Kindle, and while I still haven’t had a chance to read it, from a quick glance I think the format looks fine. So I decided to add this one to my list of pre-order downloads.

    As with every Ellen Hopkins book that I’ve seen, this one has incredibly high ratings on Goodreads. Once again this author tackles a tough subject, but one that is so important to be talked about. Being perfect.

    And this line from the description really captures this book’s focus brilliantly: “Everyone wants to be perfect, but when perfection loses its meaning, how far will you go? What would you give up to be perfect?”

    I am looking forward to discovering how this amazing author approaches this subject in her new book as it was one that I struggled with when I was a teenager and beyond.

    Blood Wounds by Susan Beth Pfeffer will be released in the U.S. on September 13, 2011 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Harcourt Children’s Books, the print edition is 256 pages.

    ***

    I hadn’t heard of this book until one of the people I traded with sent me a copy just because. While I ended up giving it away on the blog as I knew I wouldn’t read it prior to release, I found that I had developed a morbid curiosity for it and so I pre-ordered it.

    Everything about this book is creepy. From the title, to the scary, slightly evil-looking girl on the cover, to the description. I will not be reading this one at night or alone. No way.

    According to the description, the main character Willa’s estranged father murders his family and is coming after her and her brother. And as the story unfolds, she finds out that her mother has been keeping secrets. But apparently so has she.

    Of course I have to read this to find out just what those secrets are. But nothing about this book makes it seem like there will be anything remotely close to a happy ending. And, in fact, much of this sounds downright frightening.

    While I have been a fan of the horror genre, I haven’t been a fan of books about serial killers or horror stories with more of a realistic spin. And although this doesn’t claim to be a horror story, the events are certainly pretty horrific. Whatever genre it’s categorized as, between the title, cover and description, this book certainly gets its point across loud and clear.

    As that cover completely creeps me out, I’m glad I’m only getting the eBook version on Monday Midnight. I think the stare that girl is giving the camera can only be described as malevolent.

    As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott will be released in the U.S. on September 15, 2011 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available online to pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble in both formats.

    Published by Dutton Juvenile, a division of Penguin, the print edition is 224 pages.

    ***

    I first noticed this book appearing on the blogs shortly after BEA. The cover is absolutely stunning and I definitely developed a case of cover love. I didn’t add it to my pre-orders or my TBR pile at the time because I never got the chance to check out its description until recently.

    And this one sounds very different from any of the YA stories I’ve read, in a really good way. The main character Ava has amnesia and the few memories she begins to recover are those of a completely different existence to the one she’s presently living. She’s not sure what to believe, but when she meets the boy from her memories, he claims to have answers.

    I am intrigued. Most definitely. My mind is coming up with all sorts of possibilities as to what those memories really mean. Is her family not really her family? Are her friends not truly her friends? And if not, why would they lie? And why was Ava in the hospital in the first place?

    I’ve got to know. And sooner, rather than later. That’s for sure.

     ***

    Another book worthy of mention that is releasing this week in the U.S. on September 13, 2011, is Jenny Downham’s You Against Me, available in hardcover and eBook formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    I do not have this one on my list of pre-orders, but plan on checking it out after its release. I own Before I Die by the author but haven’t had a chance to read it quite yet. It was actually next up for a read just before I started blogging, and well….

    But I’ve seen this book around the blogosphere and I am curious to see if this will be a book for me.

    ***

    Another great release week. Seven books this time and I don’t think I missed any. While I had received a few ARCs of the above books through trades, most of which I’ve since sent on to other readers, the only book I have read is Frost, which I received for review from the publisher.

    Of the books that I had but didn’t get a chance to read, I am most excited about Fateful by Claudia Gray, because I’ve been such a fan of the author’s writing. And for the books that I haven’t had an early copy sitting on my shelves, I’d have to say I’m most looking forward to finally getting Drink, Slay, Love, because it really sounds like just one of those “me” books.

    I think all seven of the above books will make great additions to my eBook collection, though I’m wondering whether I’ll end up grabbing Frost and Fateful in print. That remains to be seen.

    ***

    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!

    Review: Entice (Need series book 3)

    Entice by Carrie Jones is the third book in the Need series. It was released in hardcover, audio and eBook formats on December 14th in the U.S.

    Goodreads description:

    Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that’s not quite how things have worked out.

    For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he’s been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it’s taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla?

    And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there’s that other small problem: Zara’s been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn’t just turned. She’s Astley’s queen.

    Bedford is under attack, and with Nick gone, Zara will have to team up with Astley in order to try and keep the residents of Bedford safe from pixies. She’ll also need the help of her friends, but now that she’s a pixie queen she’s not sure they trust her enough, especially with Astley at her side.

    As Zara becomes more and more dependent upon Astley’s help, her feelings for him develop into friendship and maybe something more. But with Nick stuck in Valhalla, and her heart still belonging to him, she cannot serve as Astley’s queen and lead the pixies – her people – to battle the evil forces of Frank’s rogue army that terrorize Bedford’s citizens.

    ***

    Entice is the third book in the Need series by author Carrie Jones. It continues Zara’s story and her quest to find Nick and bring him back from Valhalla into the land of the living. But her journey is not a simple one and the price to bring Nick back may just be the lives of those she loves. Will her love for Nick be worth the cost even if he no longer loves her? Will she be willing to risk the life of her king in order to save him?

    Carrie Jones is such a clever storyteller. All three books in this series are charming, fun and humorous but also heart-rending. Her character Zara is loyal, kind, quirky and wonderfully optimistic. These traits are what draw her friends to her and what has made Astley fall in love with her. And though in this book Zara has turned into a pixie she has managed to retain her humanity.

    Entice is just as engaging as the previous two books, although Captivate’s ending was so staggering that it’s difficult to compare these two books side-by-side. But Entice can stand on its own and has its own merits. It brings the reader along as Zara struggles with her acceptance of her new species, as she finds an inner strength that she never knew she had and shows her steadfast resolve to find her lost wolf.

    In this story readers will get a chance to learn a lot more about Astley – and that he is not just the guy that pixie kissed Zara taking away her humanity. And, as with the other two books, there are moments in this story that are joyous and heartbreaking. At the book’s end there is a lot more story left to tell, and readers will definitely be awaiting the fourth book in this series.

    Reviewer gives this book [rating=5]

    On a personal note:

    I fell in love with this series just over a year ago. I read Need just before Captivate was due out and couldn’t wait for its release. But wait I did, as Captivate wasn’t available as an eBook on release date. Released on Tuesday, it took me until Saturday before I ran out to buy my copy of the book in print. And I’m so happy that I didn’t wait, as it was even better than the first book.

    This year, fortunately, Entice was made available as an eBook so I was able to download it to my reader just after midnight on release date and start reading. It did take awhile for the action to pick up, probably at the forty percent mark, but then so many, many things happened from then on – and I’m not telling so you’ll have to read it. The entire story was written beautifully and that first section was necessary to the development of the story, though I would have given the first part a four star rating and the latter sixty percent a five plus.

    I loved the fact that although Zara was being pulled toward Astley she holds true to her love for Nick. Astley becomes such a likable character in this book that it is sad that his love is mostly unrequited, but at the same time Zara wouldn’t be as lovable if she just gave up on Nick and ran off with Astley.

    Though I miss the various different phobias explained with each chapter, the chapter headers in this were a riot. I loved the Tweets, blog posts, chats and texts from the very worried folks in Bedford that introduced the beginning of each chapter. And as always the cover artwork for the book was stunning.

    Biggest drawback: The next book probably won’t be available for another year.

    Entice by Carrie Jones will be released on December 14, 2010 (in the U.S.) and 3 January 2011 (in the UK) in print, audio and eBook formats. It is finally available for pre-order on the Amazon Kindle and this year readers won’t have to wait, as it’s scheduled to release as an eBook on the same day as the print version. Entice is the third book – of at least four – in the Need series, and with the most amazing cover yet in the series it looks to be even more thrilling than the first two.

    Goodreads description:

    Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever. But that’s not quite how things have worked out.

    For starters, well, Nick is dead. Supposedly, he’s been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it’s taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla?

    And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there’s that other small problem: Zara’s been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn’t just turned. She’s Astley’s queen.
