Jennifer L. Armentrout Extras! Here is a teaser from Jennifer L. Armentrout’s upcoming book Luxe book, Onyx. The scene is between Daemon and Katy: Daemon stood, holding my gaze. My whole body tensed as he neared and placed his hands on either side of me. Then he bent over the chair between us, resting his forehead against mine. He inhaled deeply and it came out in an unsteady rush. When he spoke, his voice was rough. “Do you know what I’ve been thinking about all day?” With him, it was anyone’s guess. “No.” “Kissing you,” he murmured, his lips moving in a small smile, brushing the skin of my cheek. “Finding out if you look as good in striped socks as you do in reindeer ones.” “I do.” His head slanted and his smile was lazy, arrogant. Predatory. “I knew it.” ***************************************************************************** Here is a deleted scene from Jennifer L. Armentrout’s upcoming Covenant book, Pure: Keep in mind that NOTHING that leads up to this scene is in the final version of Pure. And I mean […]
I LOVE when authors do novella companions for their books. Especially when they release them in e-book format because that means I don’t have to go hunting for it online and I can save it on my Kindle. In addition to Lauren Oliver’s Hana, here are 3 more e-novella companions. Shadows by Jennifer Armentrout Expected Publication 02/2012 Novella Currently only planned in digital format w/ limited paper copies From Jennifer Armentrout’s blog: The story is told in 3 POVs. Yes, one of them is Daemon. But the story is really about two other characters introduced in Obsidian that are near and dear to my little heart. The story is about Dawson and Bethany. Yep, Dawson as in Daemon’s twin brother. I am so, so excited for you to read their story, plus sharing Daemon pre-Obsidian, which is really cool. At some point, the cover and the official blurb will be shared. Here is a teaser from Shadows… Sheer grit got him off the ground. Immeasurable stupidity had him bum rushing the […]

I found two new cover reveals. Hana by Lauren Oliver Release Date: 01/17/12 E-book 144 pages Hana is an e-companion book to the Delirium Trilogy. As a big fan of Delirium I am very excited to read this. The cover is simple but pretty. No book description for Hana yet although Amazon states it as a prequel to Delirium. Deity by Jennifer Armentrout Covenant Series #3 Release Date: 11/06/12 Paperback/e-book Keeping with the theme of the rest of the Covenants book covers. This cover is really pretty although I can’t really tell what it is. Kind of looks like a shoulder? Release date is too far away, although that will give me plenty of time to read the rest of the Covenant books. No book description for Deity yet.
The people over at Entangled Publishing were kind enough to provide me with a copy of Hushed by Kelley York to review. This is the first book I have received from a publisher and I am very grateful and excited to get to read it. I will post a review when I am finished with the book.
The Pledge Kimberly Derting Hardcover/ E-book 323 pages Book Description taken from Amazon: In the violent country of Ludania, the language you speak determines what class you are, and there are harsh punishments if you forget your place—looking a member of a higher class in the eye can result in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina (Charlie for short) can understand all languages, a dangerous ability she’s been hiding her whole life. Her only place of release is the drug-filled underground club scene, where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. There, she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy who speaks a language she’s never heard, and her secret is almost exposed. Through a series of violent upheavals, it becomes clear that Charlie herself is the key to forcing out the oppressive power structure of her kingdom….

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden) By Julie Kagawa Release Date: 04/24/12 Hardcover/E-book 304 pages The cover was released today by Hollywood Crush at MTV.

I found this floating in cyberspace this morning. It’s the new cover to Jennifer L. Armentrout’s new book in her Lux series: Onyx! The book is a sequel to Obsidian which comes out December 6, 2011 and I am eager to read it. Onyx comes out in paperback with and expected release date of May 2012. Here is a teaser, enjoy and let me know what you think. “No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…”
This week’s new releases are new installs of popular YA series and the start of two (hopefully) new series. When a new book in a series comes out I ALWAYS re-read all the books in the series to keep in fresh in my mind. (I’ve read Vampire Academy like 6 times, gets better each time!) So it might take a slightly longer time to get a review up. First up is the long awaited Clockwork Prince book by Cassandra Clare. Release Date: December 6, 2011 Infernal Instruments Book #2 Hardcover/E-Book 497 pages. I must be one of the only people in the world that hasn’t read Clockwork Angel. After reading The Mortal Instruments series I know her books have major cliffhangers and I wanted to wait to read Clockwork Angel until I was able to read Clockwork Prince right after. I will be reading both books soon and will be sharing my thoughts on them. Here is a brief description from Amazon. In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa […]
