    The Trailers: June and July

    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 releasing in June and July, a peek at a few of those coming out in August, 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 June trailers in the May peeks, some were just too good not to repost.

    Book Watch: Releasing This Week #76

    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 June 12th-June 18th that I have pre-ordered.

    divider_2

    Rapture by Lauren Kate will be released in the U.S. on June 12, 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 Delacorte Books for Young Readers, the print edition is 464 pages.

    Rapture is the fourth and final book in author Lauren Kate’s Fallen series.

    ***

    I absolutely love this cover for Rapture and I’m sad to see the series end, though I still need to read Passion. But my eBook copy downloads this week and I’d really love to read it this month. So I am kind of desperate to get caught up, though I think I want to re-read the first two books in the series before reading the final two.

    I don’t know what happened to Luce and Daniel in Passion but I’m dying to find out how things end in Rapture. And I’m super curious what role Cam plays in this final book in the series.

    I did sneak a peek at the description and it does make me nervous. Really, really nervous. The idea that they’re being pursued by dark forces, the threat of Daniel and Luce being torn apart again and the fact that there are “great sacrifices” and that “hearts are destroyed” is utterly tormenting.

    But what’s most nerve-wracking is that Luce and Daniel may not be meant to be and I’m wondering if she’s truly meant to be with Cam. I can’t wait to find out, but I know that no matter how it ends, I think I’ll be the one with a broken heart.

    The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead will be released in the U.S. on June 12, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available online to pre-order in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Razorbill, an imprint of the Penguin Group, the print edition is 417 pages.

    The Golden Lily is the second book in author Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series. The third book in the series, as yet untitled, is slated for release in 2013.

    ***

    I just recently read Bloodlines after much fear of starting this series in the same world as Vampire Academy. But I fell in love and was dying to get my hands on The Golden Lily. I’m reading it right now, but I can’t wait for the eBook to download on Tuesday so that I can have it in my permanent collection.

    I am super curious to see where this second book in the series leads. Especially when it comes to a certain Alchemist and a certain Moroi. As always I’m worried about the Strigoi and Jill’s safety. But I’m also excited to read about the character from the Vampire Academy series that is in this book.

    And no, I won’t say who it is….

    I’ve heard this book is even more amazing than the first and I hope to finish tonight so I can begin the long wait for book three.

    Timepiece by Myra McEntire will be released in the U.S. on June 12, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available online to pre-order in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Egmont USA, the print edition is 336 pages.

    Timepiece is the second book in the Hourglass series by author Myra McEntire. The third book in the series, Infinityglass, is slated for release in 2013.

    ***

    I still haven’t read Hourglass but I plan on reading both books now that Timepiece is releasing. I heard how amazing the first book was during last year’s Crush Tourney and have felt like I was totally missing out ever since. So, I’m super glad I book two is out so I can finally find out for myself just how awesome this series is.

    I am not going to peek at the description for fear of spoilers, but I can’t wait to meet Emerson, Michael and Kaleb. Though I’m most curious about Michael from having read Hourglass’s description. I love “dark” and “mysterious” characters and ones that create an electrical charge whenever they’re around makes them sound even more interesting.

    But I also can’t wait to meet Emerson, to find out just what’s going on with her visions and to find out more about the organization called Hourglass. I hope to read both books this summer so I can suffer the wait along with all the other fans for book three’s release next year.

    Lies Beneath by Anne Greenwood Brown will be released in the U.S. on June 12, 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 Delacorte Books for Young Readers, the print edition is 320 pages.

    Lies Beneath is the author’s YA debut. The second book in the series, Deep Betrayal, is slated for release in 2013.

    ***

    I love the sound of this book. I can’t remember where I first learned of Lies Beneath, but after I checked out the description I just had to pre-order it. I think it was the “murderous mermaids” that pulled me in.

    I can’t wait to see what Calder White is like and to meet his vicious family who kill humans to take their energy. The description makes them sound very evil and yet Calder manages to fall in love with Lily. To say that this sounds like an ill-fated love story is an understatement.

    I can’t imagine what will happen when Lily finds out the truth. But it doesn’t sound like things will end happily, especially with the second book in the series entitled Deep Betrayal.

    I haven’t read any mermaid stories where the mermaids were predators, but I can’t wait to check this book out this summer. It definitely sounds like a book I will thoroughly enjoy.

    For Darkness Shows the Stars will be released in the U.S. on June 12, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available online to pre-order in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Balzer + Bray, the print edition is 416 pages.

    ***

    I haven’t yet read anything by author Diana Peterfreund though I own two books in the author’s Killer Unicorns series. But I wanted to check out this new book by the author as I kind of fell in love with the title, For Darkness Shows the Stars.

    I had an early copy but haven’t yet had a chance to read it, so I will be reading the eBook version that will be downloading to my Kindle this week. But I’m very curious to see how the author was inspired by Jane Austen’s book Persuasion.

    While I am not a huge fan of books with a science fiction bent, I love that this story is deemed a “breathtaking romance.” Because I do love a love story. And I can’t wait to meet Elliot and Kai and find out just what secret he’s been keeping and whether Elliot will choose duty this time around or follow her heart.

    And if she does, I really hope that things end happily and she doesn’t end up heartbroken. I am super excited to find those answers for myself this summer.

    Tokyo Heist by Diana Renn will be released in the U.S. on June 14, 2012 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

    Published by Viking Juvenile, the print edition is 384 pages.

    Tokyo Heist is Diana Renn’s young adult debut.

    ***

    I first heard about Tokyo Heist when I was offered a copy through a trade. And when I didn’t get a chance to read it early, I decided to pre-order it for my Kindle because it seems really interesting and different and exciting.

    It sounds like an adventure and a mystery and I love the fact that it’s set mainly in Japan. I can’t wait to see whether Violet manages to track down the van Gogh art thieves and just what dangers she’ll encounter in trying to solve the crime.

    I’m curious to find out why Violet and her father’s lives are on the line and exactly what will happen if she doesn’t recover the stolen art. I hope she finds someone she can trust to help her out, as the “yakuza-invested streets of Tokyo” do not sound at all safe for a sixteen-year-old girl from Seattle.

    I really hope to sneak this one in next month, because I’m definitely in the mood for something a little bit different and this fits the bill perfectly.

    (Amazon, Barnes & Noble)

    ***

    It’s another one of those so many books, so little time weeks. I have eight books pre-ordered. The six young adult books I mentioned above and the two non-YA books I have listed in the “Other Books of Note” section. And I’ll have only read one or two of them by release date.

    I really want to catch up on the Fallen series books because I fell in love with the first book in that series and really want to see how things end for Luce, Cam and Daniel. And I’m dying to read Myra McEntire’s Hourglass series because I feel like I’m the only one in the world who hasn’t.

    I’m sure I missed a ton of great books this week, but after seeing I had eight books pre-ordered, I decided it would be best not to look for any releases I might have missed. Though if I see a few reviews come in for books releasing this week that look awesome I may just have to add a few more books to the TBR pile.

    ***

    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!

    My Reading Pile #64

    While it was fairly quiet at the mailbox this week, it was still a happy week due to a couple surprises and a book I traded for that I’m dying to read. And I mean dying. I may have almost hugged my postman when I saw it in there. Almost.

    But I contained myself. Barely.

    Credit for mailbox sharing goes to TSS

    On the top of the pile is a surprise book, Miss Match, that I received from author Wendy Toliver. And it’s signed. With a couple of super cute bookmarks. While I’d heard of the author, I hadn’t heard of this book until I checked it out on Goodreads and it looks super fun. I will definitely be adding it to my reads this summer. Though I may have to buy the eBook, because this one is signed.

    It is a total mystery, however, just how this book ended up in my mailbox as I don’t have my address posted around the interwebs…. Well, it’s a happy mystery so I won’t complain.

    The remaining three books on the pile I received from a trade with another blogger. I’m still expecting quite a few more from the trade, but this was rushed to me just so that I could get The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead ASAP! And woo hoo, I’m super excited!

    But I’m also excited to have Anything but Ordinary and Such a Rush and I really hope to read both books this month.

    I also received another surprise in the mail this week. It was a box filled with swag and sugar skulls from author Leah Clifford. But, it was all thanks to Alba of Book Pics! Apparently she won the skulls during a BlogTV appearance that I missed and asked the author to send them to me. Well, I got those, along with a ton of other amazing swag.

    And yes, due to my poor picture taking abilities I did add a lens flare and some soft lighting. I would have taken a new picture but there are only two of those skulls left and some of that swag is already packed up with a book or two to send to Alba.

    Anyway, while I have a few great books to add to my TBR pile, only one of those is on the reading pile this week. So….

    Here are the books I have in my reading pile this week.

    (June 3 – June 9, 2012)

    ***

    First up on the pile is The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead, which would have been read before I even got to add it this week’s pile if I weren’t already in the middle of two great books. I just recently read Bloodlines and I wanted desperately to immediately pick this up, but I didn’t have my copy. But now I do thanks to a trade with a very awesome blogger.

    I have heard that this book is even better than the first. And I can’t wait to read about that certain someone mentioned at the end of Bloodlines. And I am dying to find out who is having a forbidden romance.

    The description also mentions an unexpected spirit bond so I’m super curious to find out who the unfortunate pair is. Thankfully I won’t have to wait too long, as it is the first book on the pile this week.

    Next up on the pile is Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard. I received an eARC thanks to HarperTeen through Edelweiss. But I also had apparently traded for a copy. I’m not sure which I’ll read, but I may read a bit from both.

    I had actually started this book a couple weeks ago, then decided to set it aside until it was officially on the pile. But I really am excited to read it. It’s 1876. There are zombies. And it seems they’ve formed an army.

    I’m curious to find out if Philadelphia will be overtaken by zombies – hopefully not – and if Eleanor will find her brother before it’s too late – hopefully so. I am also super curious to find out who is controlling this army of the dead and whether there will be a love story amidst the chaos and danger. Handsome inventors always seem to be a risk for characters to give their heart to. So I’m hoping that things end well for Eleanor.

    And if all goes as planned, I’ll have those answers by the end of the week.

    Wishful Thinking reads:

    Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent. There is, apparently, a copy working its way to me as we speak. I’m hopeful it arrives this weekend, but I’m thinking it should arrive sometime later this week. Which means both books on the pile will get moved down if I haven’t read them already.

    I have been dying to find out how If I Die could possibly be followed up. And I’m so super excited to finally find out the answer to that question. So, while this is technically more than a wishful thinking read, it is definitely a book I wish I could be reading right now.

    Those left behind:

    I went completely off pile this week. Well, last weekend really, as I haven’t read anything since Monday. But I did end up reading three of the books in Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series – Some Girls Bite, Friday Night Bites, Twice Bitten – and about half of the fourth book in the series, Hard Bitten. I also started and am mostly done with my re-read of If I Die. Though I have no idea how I’ll tackle those reviews since I didn’t take any notes…. Ugh.

    But after I read The Golden Lily and possibly Before I Wake, I will get back on pile to finish last week’s reads of Cold Fury and Easy before I start reading Something Strange and Deadly.

    I have not been doing very well with my reading piles this past month. It seems I find myself going totally off pile. But I am enjoying most everything I read and I love the pressure-free reads.

    While I still haven’t written my review of Dreamless, I did manage to write the one for Grave Mercy, so at least I’m not totally behind. Here’s hoping I’ll catch up this week.

    NetGalley Pile Adds:

    I may have been lured onto NetGalley this week as I had to post my review for Grave Mercy. And I saw so many amazing titles that were painful not to click on to request. I held strong until I came across Throne of Glass which I discovered when creating my trailers post this past week. So I just had to put in the request. And I was approved.

    Then, Giselle of Xpresso Reads mentioned to me that Dearly, Beloved was available. And while I haven’t read Dearly, Departed I just had to request the sequel because I’ve been dying to read Dearly, Departed and it would give me the perfect push knowing I had Dearly, Beloved  waiting in the wings. So, that’s also on my NetGalley TBR pile.

    All I can say is that at least I’m not headed to BEA to accumulate a pile of books I won’t possibly have the time to read. That’s a good thing, right?

    Fiktshun-Divider-2-NEW

    Last weekend – a holiday weekend here in the U.S. – was amazing. I was able to read three books back-to-back-to-back. I hadn’t realized just how much I missed that – devouring series books one after the other. I hope to do it more often.

    As I have the week off this week, and I will not be going to BEA as originally planned, I will (hopefully) have lots and lots of time to read and relax. I suppose I’ll just need to find some time to write those reviews though….

    I am also hoping to finally fix the hundred or so posts for My Reading Pile that got a little messed up when I transferred that blog from Blogger to WordPress. Ah, though plans and I aren’t always the best of friends. Here’s to hoping. Anyway….

    Happy reading!

    There are a few awesome books releasing the week of June 12th. But the one I’m most excited for is The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. While I haven’t yet read Bloodlines, the first book in this spin-off series, it is the very next book on my reading pile. And with release date for The Golden Lily in less than a month, it’s a book I definitely have on my most watched list.

    The author is an amazing writer. Her Vampire Academy series had characters I will love for always. One of them being Adrian, who is apparently very much in this new series which takes place at a boarding school in Palm Springs, California.

    I can’t wait to find out what happened in Bloodlines and to see what’s next for Jill, Sydney and Adrian in this sequel. I have taken a peek at the description and it sounds even more exciting than the description for book one. A story that promises “Strigoi,” “forbidden romance” and “spirit bonds” sounds awesome and has me desperate to find out what I missed and what’s to come. And, the idea that this story is set at a school not solely for vampires is totally wicked and definitely adds to the tension.

    With the higher stakes, hotter drama and steamier romance that the description teases and with the possibility of cameo appearances by some of the other favorite characters from Vampire Academy, this book and series totally deserve to be in a giant spotlight.

    About the Book

    Goodreads description:

    The second thrilling installment in Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy spinoff series

    Tough, brainy alchemist Sydney Sage and doe-eyed Moroi princess Jill Dragomir are in hiding at a human boarding school in the sunny, glamorous world of Palm Springs, California. The students–children of the wealthy and powerful–carry on with their lives in blissful ignorance, while Sydney, Jill, Eddie, and Adrian must do everything in their power to keep their secret safe. But with forbidden romances, unexpected spirit bonds, and the threat of Strigoi moving ever closer, hiding the truth is harder than anyone thought.

    Populated with new faces as well as familiar ones, Richelle Mead’s breathtaking Bloodlines series explores all the friendship, romance, battles, and betrayals that made the #1 New York Times bestselling Vampire Academy series so addictive. In this second book, the drama is hotter, the romances are steamier, and the stakes are even higher.
