    Book Watch: Releasing This Week #130

    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 June 25th-July 1st that I have pre-ordered.

    In the After

    addtogoodreads

    IN THE AFTER by Demitria Lunetta will be released in the U.S. on June 25, 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 464 pages.

    IN THE AFTER is the first book in author Demitria Lunetta’s series of the same name. No information is yet available about other books in the series.

    Line_001

    I am so unbelievably excited that IN THE AFTER is releasing this week. This book sounds soooo good. Chilling. Totally chilling. I’ve been dying to read it forever. And I just discovered that I have the printed ARC which Jaime of Two Chicks on Books had given to me.

    So maybe I don’t have to wait until my pre-order downloads on Monday Midnight to start reading this book. Because I am so curious about “Them” – who and what they are and why they are. I want to know why, after arriving in New Hope, things are still not ideal for Amy and Baby.

    And I really, really want to know what exactly happened before. Because life in the after does not sound at all good for those who live in it.

    The description calls IN THE AFTER “thrilling” and “pulse-pounding” and I cannot wait to be thrilled, to have my pulse race and to find out just what happens in this book whose release I’ve been waiting forever for.

    The Lost Sun

    addtogoodreads

    THE LOST SUN by Tessa Gratton will be released in the U.S. on June 25, 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 Random House Books for Young Readers, the print edition is 368 pages.

    THE LOST SUN is the first book in the author’s The United States of Asgard series. No information is yet available about other books in the series.

    Line_001

    I absolutely adore Tessa Gratton’s writing. I think she is an amazing writer and I cannot wait for this fascinating new series to begin. As soon as I heard about THE LOST SUN I instantly pre-ordered it for my Kindle.

    While I knew that this was a new series and I had read the first line of the description, I didn’t actually take a closer look at it until now. I didn’t need to because the author’s books are ones I will automatically add to my collection. But now that I have….

    I cannot wait to meet Soren Bearskin. I love that this world has Norse mythology at its base. I love that the story involves warriors, battles and berserking. And I love, love, love that the setting includes both an Academy and a road trip.

    I really, really hope to be able to sneak this on the pile next week, as I cannot wait to get lost in this story of a missing god and embark upon a new series by this wonderfully imaginative author.

    Weather Witch

    addtogoodreads

    WEATHER WITCH by Shannon Delany will be released in the U.S. on June 25, 2013 in paperback and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

    Published by St. Martin’s Griffin, the print edition is 336 pages.

    WEATHER WITCH is the first book in a new series of the same name by author Shannon Delany. The second book in the series, STORMBRINGER, is slated for release on January 14, 2014.

    Line_001

    I cannot believe that WEATHER WITCH is releasing this week. I’ve been dying to get my early eARC on the pile so that I could read it before its release and before my pre-ordered copy downloads. Something I still hope to do this afternoon.

    I love that this is set in the 1800s and that it mixes together affluent society and witchcraft. I am so curious about what exactly a weather witch does – aside from what I imagine is to influence or control the weather – and just why harboring one is “the greatest of social sins.” And I can’t wait to start this new series by this author.

    The description is a bit vague about just where the story is headed, but its setting, at such an interesting time period in a country at the brink of war is incredibly enticing. I love that the setting is dark, I love that the description sounds more than a little bit ominous.

    And I can’t wait to get this on the pile either this afternoon or in the next couple of week so that I can get answers to my questions and meet Jordan, Rowen and Catrina.

    After Daybreak

    addtogoodreads

    AFTER DAYBREAK by J.A. London will be released in the U.S. on June 25, 2013 in paperback and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

    Published by HarperTeen, the print edition is 336 pages.

    AFTER DAYBREAK is the third and final book in the Darkness Before Dawn Trilogy by the authors.

    Line_001

    I have fallen just a little bit behind on this series, but now that AFTER DAYBREAK, the final book in the trilogy, is releasing, I am excited to get caught up. I really enjoyed the setting and its characters in the first book in the series and getting the chance to continue the story to its end is incredibly appealing.

    I did end up taking a peek at the description for this third book – I know, I know, I really shouldn’t have – but I’m so glad I did, because it makes me want to read this series to its conclusion even more. Especially since it mentions nothing about it being the final book or how things might end.

    So I’m wildly curious. And I’m even more curious about what happened to Dawn in L.A.

    As I own book two and this book is downloading this week, I hope to be able to read both books back-to-back in July. Because I want to know whether Dawn and Victor will be able to defeat Sin and stop the spread of the Thirst.

    Ashes on the Waves

    addtogoodreads

    ASHES ON THE WAVES by Mary Lindsey will be released in the U.S. on June 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 Philomel, the print edition is 384 pages.

    Line_001

    I am so excited that ASHES ON THE WAVES is releasing later this week and that everyone will get the chance to meet Liam and Annabel in this dark and gorgeous book. And I can’t wait for my print copy to arrive… which I’m hoping will be earlier than Thursday.

    As I just rambled about this book in my post yesterday and have already spotlighted it for my Book Watch post earlier this month, I am not going to say much more except that I am so thrilled for the author that her beautiful book will be on shelves this week and that everyone can fall in love as I have.

    I have been excited for this story ever since I got a very early sneak peek back in September 2011. I fell in love with its premise and its main character instantly. And when I got the chance to read it early nearly one year later, back in September 2012, I was over the moon. It was every bit as captivating, beautiful, dark as I imagined it would be.

    And I’m totally stoked that this story will finally be available in its finished form for me to add to my collection in both print and electronic formats on Thursday.

    When creating this post on Saturday I discovered that I did not have PARADOX by A.J. Paquette or HIDDEN by Marianne Curley pre-ordered. Which was a surprise. So, of course, today, I just had to order them.

    But as I’m so late in posting this due to a late night/almost-all-night read of PUSHING THE LIMITS by Katie McGarry and some things I had to do for work today, I decided if I was ever going to get this posted I should probably not to rework my post to include them with my pre-orders above.

    Besides, although they’re technically still pre-orders, it’s cutting it close. And there is also a distinct possibility, like every week, that there will be a couple other “of note” books I end up purchasing for my Kindle before they actually release on Tuesday and beyond. Books like THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET and INK.

    Anyway…

    There are a few more titles available this week than last. And while I have seven books that will be added to my collection this week, at least I’ve read one of them… although I am re-reading it this week. So, technically it’s still on the TBR pile…. *Sigh*

    But I’m so excited for each of the books releasing this week that I have on order. And I hope to be able to read all of them in the upcoming weeks. And while hopes don’t always turn into realities, this week I really, really hope they do.

    Happy 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!

    The Trailers: September and October

    They’re back! For those times when you just need a short break from reading.

    Here, for your viewing pleasure, are a few amazing book trailers for just some of the books that released in September and October, a peek at a few of those coming out in November and beyond, a look back at those we may have missed, and a glimpse at a few authors talking about their books.

    While I may have already included a few of those September trailers in the August peeks, some were just too good not to repost.

    Book Watch: Releasing This Week #94

    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 October 16th-October 22nd that I have pre-ordered.

    Crewel by Gennifer Albin will be released in the U.S. on October 16, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR), the print edition is 368 pages.

    Crewel is the first book in a new series, Crewel World, by the author.

    ***

    I’ve been seeing CREWEL crop up on blogs all around the blogosphere. While I haven’t read any reviews, I saw it was getting high marks so I checked it out on Goodreads. And I was very intrigued by the description so I decided to pre-order it.

    Being able to “weave time with matter” sounds absolutely fascinating. While I haven’t the first clue what having that ability means to the story, I definitely want to find out just what it does mean. All I know for certain is that Adelice has that ability, she doesn’t want it, and the Guild will be coming after her because she does.

    The description hints that becoming a Spinster is something there’s no escape from, so unless Adelice decides she wants to control people she’ll have to go on the run. And quickly.

    CREWEL’s description is a definite tease. I have no idea just what the story encompasses – whether it’s Adelice’s adventure as she attempts to hide from the Guild, whether it’s one in which she’s caught and forced against her will to work as a Spinster, or whether it’s something entirely different.

    Whatever direction this story may take, I can’t wait to find out. Which means I may just have to take a quick peek when it downloads to my Kindle on Monday night.

    Break My Heart 1,000 Times by Daniel Waters will be released in the U.S. on October 16, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Hyperion Books for Children, the print edition is 352 pages.

    ***

    I am so completely curious about BREAK MY HEART 1,000 TIMES. And I have been for ages. Ever since I first saw the cover and glanced at the description on Goodreads. So, of course I had to pre-order it and make it mine.

    Because I want to know why the ghosts are gaining power. I want to know what this “sinister plot” is that Veronica and Kirk uncover. And I want to know whether Veronica’s teacher succeeds in his plan to make her the host for his dead daughter.

    When I spotlighted this book for my Book Watch post at the end of September it felt like release date would never get here. Now it’s just about here. And I can finally find out for myself if this is every bit the “creepy and suspenseful thriller” the description promised. Which I hope to do in the next couple of weeks.

    Second Chance by Heather Brewer will be released in the U.S. on October 16, 2012 in hardcover, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Dial, the print edition is 276 pages.

    Second Chance is the second book in author Heather Brewer’s The Slayer Chronicles.

    ***

    I own every book in author Heather Brewer’s The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series. I own the first book in her Slayer Chronicles. And now I have SECOND CHANCE pre-ordered. Yet I’ve only read just one-and-a-half books total from both series.

    So I have some serious catching up to do. But I loved the author’s writing and characters. I thought the first book in Vlad Tod’s series that I had read was absolutely adorable. And so I just couldn’t resist buying up all books in the series with the hope of reading them back-to-back one day.

    And when I learned that Joss was going to get his very own spinoff series, I was stoked and just had to buy up those books too. Because I thought it would be awesome to see things from his perspective, to see what life was like for Joss as a Slayer and to see if there were any other peeks at Vlad Tod that might not exist in that first series.

    This second installment in the Slayer Chronicles sounds just as entertaining as the first. Murders are being committed in New York City. Joss must determine if a vampire is behind the killings. And it’s up to him to be the savior or risk losing his status as a Slayer.

    I am seriously considering just jumping right into Joss’s series so I don’t have to wait too long to find out whether he is able to keep everyone safe and remain a Slayer. If I do decide to read things just a bit out of order, then I might just get the chance to read SECOND CHANGE next month.

    Hidden by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast will be released in the U.S. on October 16, 2012 in hardcover, audio and eBook format. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by St. Martin’s Griffin, the print edition is 320 pages.

    Hidden is the tenth book in the authors House of Night series.

    ***

    I’ve fallen a bit behind on the House of Night series but decided to pre-order HIDDEN regardless. I have invested quite a bit of time into this series and I’m just so curious to find out where it’s headed and whether this book is the final installment in the series. Though it doesn’t sound like it will be.

    I did take a peek at the description even though I hadn’t read the previous book in the series and it seems that a certain wicked character’s true nature has been revealed to the Vampyre High Council. And according to the description “chaos reigns” because this character isn’t “going down without a fight.”

    The description does not reveal what’s happening with Zoey, Stevie Rae or any of the other characters. So I am a bit curious as to whether they did make it into this tenth book. Though if it is Zoey on the cover, then she has made it to book ten and she looks seriously mad about something….

    I don’t know when I’ll get the chance to read this next installment, but as I’d heard the previous one was good, I may try to read that one this winter so I can get caught up on the series before book eleven – if there is a book eleven – gets released.

    There are a huge number of books releasing this week, but I’ve only pre-ordered four of them. I just haven’t had the time to take a longer look at the other books of note to see if they’re books I must add to my collection. Though I hope to get the chance this week.

    I did see CREWEL all over the blogosphere this past month and it sounded awesome so I decided to pre-order it. And I’m hoping at least a couple of the remaining six books are ones that I must buy.

    But I am glad that I only have four books pre-ordered this week as I am coming to the harsh realization that I’ll never get caught up on my TBR pile if my book buying continues to exceed my book reading every single week.

    While I have increased the number of books I’ve been reading each week, I still haven’t managed to devour more than four, so I’m hopeful that I can keep my book purchases to four books or less for at least the rest of the year. But I’m just not sure that’s possible.

    We shall see….

    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!

    Book Watch: Releasing This Week #89

    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 11th-September 17th that I have pre-ordered.

    Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst will be released in the U.S. on September 11, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Margaret K. McElderry Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, the print edition is 432 pages.

    I am so excited about Vessel’s release this week. I first noticed it around the blogosphere when I saw this gorgeous cover and it sounded so epic I just had to pre-order a copy.

    I am really excited to read this book that the description calls a “mystical” and “atmospheric tale.” I can’t wait to meet Liyana. I love the idea that she’s been groomed to be a vessel for a goddess, but when the goddess doesn’t appear, she is abandoned by her tribe to die in the desert.

    I am also very curious to meet Korbyn who is purportedly a “trickster god” who finds Liyana and convinces her to search for other missing gods. I’m interested to see if he was behind their disappearances or if he is only being helpful. I find it tough to trust a trickster, so I’ll reserve judgment until I meet him.

    I can’t wait to take this journey with them and find out whether Liyana and Korbyn are able to “trick fate.” And I really hope to do so later this month.

    Brimstone by Rosemary Clement-Moore will be released in the U.S. on September 11, 2012 in paperback and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Ember, the print edition is 656 pages.

    Brimstone is an omnibus edition of books one and two in the Maggie Quinn Girl vs. Evil series by author Rosemary Clement-Moore.

    ***

    I realized I hadn’t heard of any upcoming releases by author Rosemary Clement-Moore this year so I did a search on Amazon and saw this omnibus edition for two of her previously published titles – Prom Dates from Hell and Hell Week. As I hadn’t yet read her Maggie Quinn Girl vs. Evil series and didn’t own the books, I thought I’d take a peek at them in Brimstone.

    I just love the name of this series. And I love the names of the individual books. I can’t wait to find out what happens as Maggie investigates the evil that’s been unleashed at her high school in Prom Dates from Hell and to see just what happens with the Greeks when things go awry in Hell Week.

    This series sounds like a lot of fun, with a kick-a** heroine and I can’t wait to meet her when my Kindle copy downloads this week. And I am so very tempted to grab the third book in the series right now….

    Hidden by Sophie Jordan will be released in the U.S. on September 11, 2012 in hardcover, audio and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in all formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by HarperCollins, the print edition is 272 pages.

    Hidden is the third and final book in author Sophie Jordan’s Firelight trilogy.

    ***

    I can’t believe I haven’t caught up with this series and now it’s ending! I own the first two books on my Kindle and have had Hidden pre-ordered for quite some time. I just haven’t had the chance to start this series yet.

    I discovered it before I started blogging as it was one of the Amazon recommends that kept popping up. While it sounded a bit different from what I was reading at the time, curiosity won out and I bought the book. Then I moved. Then I started blogging. And I never got the chance to dive in.

    But I so very much wanted to. Especially when I checked out the description when book two was being released. Firelight totally grabbed me with its first three sentences – “A hidden truth. Mortal enemies. Doomed love.” Had I read that back in 2010 I never would have waited.

    I want to know what truth is being hidden. I want to see if love is really doomed. And I want to find out if these enemies prevail. I can’t wait to meet Jacinda and Will, find out if their love story is a happy one. And I can’t wait to learn more about what it means to be a draki.

    I refuse to take a look at the Goodreads description for Hidden, even though it’s linked in the cover. I don’t want to risk spoiling this series because I will be reading it. Soon.

    Hanging by a Thread by Sophie Littlefield will be released in the U.S. on September 11, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Delacorte Books for Young Readers, the print edition is 288 pages.

    ***

    I am so excited that Hanging by a Thread is finally releasing. I fell in love with this cover the moment I saw it and pre-ordered this book solely based on cover love. Well, that and because I already own two books by this author.

    Of course the description – and the excerpt I’d read – have me totally intrigued. But as I spotlighted this for my Book Watch post a couple weeks ago, I won’t go into all the reasons why.

    I will simply say that mysterious disappearances, a heroine with the ability to see people’s past from simply touching their clothing, and murder make this book one that I won’t be able to wait very long to read. I may just have to sneak this one in next month.

    And I may have to check out the print edition, too, as this is one book whose cover would look awesome on my book tower.

    While there are a ton of books releasing this week, I only have four I’m adding to my collection. I’m dying to read Jonathan Maberry’s series, but I may end up buying the omnibus Kindle edition, TALES OF THE ROT AND RUIN, which is also releasing this week. But as it’s $30.99 I am still debating whether or not to simply try out the first book. I am still undecided.

    I haven’t read any of the four new books I’m adding to my collection this week, but I really hope to read VESSEL and HANGING BY A THREAD very soon. And I hope to catch up on the FIRELIGHT series this fall because it not only sounds awesome, I’ve been told it’s a series not to miss.

    I think my wallet is very happy with me this week, but it has no idea what’s in store for it next week. And if I splurge on the Maberry books, which I’m so very tempted to do right now, it will be grumbling.

    I’m so glad I don’t tweet my purchases from Amazon as they offer, because then everyone would know just how many other books than the ones I post about each week get added to my eReader.

    Anyway….

    I envy those of you who already got the chance to buy STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff. It doesn’t release in the U.S. until next week. But there are some amazing books releasing this week and I hope you found some to add to your collection.

    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!
