HAVE YOU SEEN THESE YET?!?
BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY. This is Ethan's story. A spin-off to the Iron Fey series that ignited our deep trust and respect for one Julie Kagawa, creator of two of the best good-looking frenemies in existence.
This is all they're telling us:
Set several years after the events of the first, this trilogy will star an older Ethan Chase, Meghan's brother.DAMN HARLEQUIN TEEN FOR BEING SO CLOSE-MOUTHED.
This bad boy isn't set to come out until OCTOBER 23, 2012.
I KNOW, right?
The Iron Legends is heading running toward us August 28, 2012.
And YOU KNOW WHAT'S IN IT?
Winter's Passage, Summer's Crossing which is UH, DUH. But there's also a superspecial story called Iron Prophecy.
And we can only guess what that's all about. Do you think it'll be told in Meghan's POV? Or someone else altogether...?
LOOK AT IT. Really look, and tell me you're not a bit mesmerized. And honestly there's not much going on. Maybe it's the purple fantasticness. Or maybe it's the really sexy font.
Can't go wrong with a sexy font!
I don't know if I'll actually be reading this one, alas. Mostly because The Faerie Ring was totally OKAY. Nothing too special to write home to Fred in his playpen. I'll live.
Tiki’s greatest fear suddenly becomes all too real: the fey have returned to London seeking revenge. As war escalates in the Otherworld, Queen Victoria’s youngest son, Prince Leopold, is attacked. In order to protect her family and the ones she loves, she needs to know the meaning of an fáinne sí, the birthmark that winds around her wrist. But will Tiki be brave enough to face the truth?
A bloody escape, a deadly threat, a shocking revelation…
In other words, I'm screaming so loud my neighbors don't like me very much. This is the sequel to the MOTHER WASHING AWESOME AWAKEN.
That's right. That fabulous dystopian novel that came out last year and totally took you by surprise is continuing, thankfully. Even though I'd had Katie's sworn word, or practically did, that this was a series, I couldn't fully wrap my brain around it. This is going to finally grace our shelves possibly November 20, 2012. Which is a long ass time away, but I'm game to wait a little longer.
In the sequel to Awaken, seventeen-year-old Maddie is in LA, is trying to stay out of trouble. But she can't quell the fire that rages within her against the digital life, and one night, a seemingly small act of rebellion lands Maddie in the place she fears the most: a detention center. Here, under the guise of rehabilitation, patients are reprogramed to accept the digital life. When Maddie discovers what goes on here, her fight shifts. She's no longer just fighting against the digital life. She's fighting for her mind, her soul, and her life. Once again, Katie Kacvinsky paints a disturbing picture of what the future holds if we're not careful.
(Or have we...?)
Hunting Lila is an awesome superpower, action-y paranormal novel that totally kicks butt and I really dug, OBVS. The "GRIPPING" sequel is not to come out until August 2, 2012, which is EIGHT WHOLE DAYS BEFORE MY EIGHTEENTH BIRTHDAY. Which already feels like forever away. Not that I'm eager to grow up or anything, but I digress.

Whilst Alex is determined to keep Lila safe and her ability secret at any cost, Lila’s only thought is of finding a way back to California so that she can rescue her brother and mother from the military base where they’re being held.And onto sequels in which I HAVE NOT read their predecessors...

Together with Alex, Demos, and the people she’s come to think of as family, Lila plans not just to save her brother and mother, but to completely destroy the Unit and everything it stands for.
But the plan requires Lila to return alone to California, make friends with the enemy, and to risk losing everything - Alex, her family, and even her life.
What the what is wrong with me and my stupid lack of reading Incarnate? These have the best covers I've seen in a while. Oh my G, this one is so fab. I'd even go so far as to say better than the first. WOWZA. This one totally packs a punch.
I've been avoiding this series. No idea why. Maybe it's my internal fear that good covers don't always make good stories. Reassurances would be lovely, my darlings.

But when no one believes the truth, Mara is totally helpless. The only person on her side is Noah Shaw, as sexy and handsome as he is loyal and cunning. Noah is the only person who can help Mara—as long as he doesn’t get himself killed in the process.
I don't even have a clue as to why I haven't started this series. It's a head-scratcher. September 4, 2012 this one will be arriving.
Three teenage descendants of Medusa, now united, must claim their heritage to fight the monsters escaped from the abyss.
Gretchen may have known she was a descendant of Medusa long before her sisters--after all, she's spent her life fighting the monsters that escape the abyss--but that doesn't mean it will be easy to teach the other girls the ropes.
Greer has pressing social commitments on her plate and precious little time to train in her newfound powers. But that wretched second sight won't leave her alone, and her fabled heritage seems to be creeping into her fashionable life.
Grace has worries closer to home--like why her brother, Thane, has disappeared. He's hiding something. Could it possibly be related to the secret heritage the triplets share?
I may check this one out EVENTUALLY. But she just creeps me out, she does. This sequel pops into stores September 18, 2012.

This black-and-blue beauty is not set to fly into our hands until January 29, 2013. So that gives me some time to get started.
The Elector Primo of the Republic has died, with his son assuming power over what’s left of the USA’s West Coast as it teeters on full-blown chaos. June and Day join up with Patriot rebels so they can rescue Day’s brother and head east for the Colonies. In order to help, though, the rebels want June and Day to kill the new Elector, who may pose an even greater threat than his father.
After a young Wretch is abducted by the Dome and "cleansed" of her fusings and imperfections, she is only able to repeat the Dome's latest message: "We want our son returned. This girl is proof that we can save you all. If you ignore our plea, we will kill our hostages one at a time." Willux will go to any lengths to get his son Partridge back, including murder.
Partridge sacrifices himself and returns, in the hope of taking over the Dome from within, only to uncover more of his father's chilling, dark secrets. Outside the Dome, Pressia, Bradwell, and El Capitan are decoding the secrets from the past—tucked away in one of the Black Boxes—to uncover the truth that might set the wretches free of their fusings forever.
Those fighting Willux will be pushed over boundaries, both land and sea, heart and mind, in their quest—further than they ever imagined.
This is not set to release until September 4, 2012.
Celia Reynolds is the youngest in a set of triplets and the one with the least valuable power. Anne can see the future, and Jane can see the present, but all Celia can see is the past. And the past seems so insignificant -- until Celia meets Lo.
Lo doesn't know who she is. Or who she was. Once a human, she is now almost entirely a creature of the sea -- a nymph, an ocean girl, a mermaid -- all terms too pretty for the soulless monster she knows she's becoming. Lo clings to shreds of her former self, fighting to remember her past, even as she's tempted to embrace her dark immortality.
When a handsome boy named Jude falls off a pier and into the ocean, Celia and Lo work together to rescue him from the waves. The two form a friendship, but soon they find themselves competing for Jude's affection. Lo wants more than that, though. According to the ocean girls, there's only one way for Lo to earn back her humanity. She must persuade a mortal to love her . . . and steal his soul.
Well, she's due up for another novel. And it sounds pretty fly. It comes out December 4, 2012, though, so don't hold your breath now. I won't be held responsible.
Sadie can’t wait to get away from her backwards small town, her delusional mom, her jailbird dad, and the tiny trailer where she was raised…even though leaving those things behind also means leaving Brendan. Sadie wants a better life, and she has been working steadily toward it, one con at a time.
But when Sadie’s mother wipes out Sadie’s savings, her escape plan is suddenly gone. She needs to come up with a lot of cash—and fast—or she’ll be stuck in this town forever.
With Brendan’s help, she devises a plan—the ultimate con—to get the money. But the more lies Sadie spins, the more she starts falling for her own hoax…and perhaps for the wrong boy. Sadie wanted to change her life, but she wasn't prepared to have it flipped upside down by her own deception. With her future at stake and her heart on the line, suddenly it seems like she has a lot more than just money to lose...
And then, then, GET THIS. An actual relation to THE Alice from Alice in Wonderland has to rectify that mistakes of her ancestor from which the real story is based upon. YES, YES, YES. I want this book like it's nobody's business, bro.
For sixteen years, Alyssa Gardner has lived with the stigma of being descended from Alice Liddell -- the real life inspiration for Lewis Carroll's famed novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. But cruel jokes about dormice and tea parties can’t compare to the fact that Alyssa hears the whispers of bugs and flowers ... the same quirk which sent her mother to a mental institution years before.
When her mother takes a turn for the worse and the whispers grow too strong for Alyssa to bear, she seeks the origins of their family curse. A set of heirlooms and a moth tied to an unusual website lead Alyssa and her gorgeous best friend / secret crush, Jeb, down the rabbit hole into the real Wonderland, a place more twisted and eerie than Lewis Carroll ever let on.
There, creepy counterparts of the original fairytale crew reveal the purpose for Alyssa’s journey, and unless she fixes the things her great-great-great grandmother Alice put wrong, Wonderland will have her head.
HAVE YOU SEEN...
They totally changed the cover to this initially awesome-looking book. Now it looks so... ordinary. Like any other mermaid book. When pairing the cover with the summary, the original suits best. It gives me that kind of vibe the summary is going for. What are your opinions? Which cover do you think is better?
What do you think? Which do you like the best? Are you interested in reading any of these? If you, by some INSANELY fortunate chance, have already read any of these deliciously covered books, what did you think? Let me know down in the comments section. Don't be shy!
