    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!
