Books I can't wait to read!

Can I tell you a secret? I totally don't do horror. BUT, this book sounds really good. I may have to leave all my lights on while I read, but I'm going to do it. Do you like horror? I loved Carrie Ryan's Forest of Hands and Teeth series, but I don't know if those would be considered horror ... Would they?

Release Date: September 18th 2012

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives – an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school's most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off the from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn't scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

Okay. I'm in love with this cover. The greens, the butterfly, the title. Love. The story sounds amazing as well.

 Release Date: April 10th 2012

 Convinced she’s a part of the witness protection program, sixteen-year-old Jewel Rose is shuffled around the globe with her family like a pack of traveling gypsies. After arriving at lucky home twenty-seven, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy with magical powers claiming to be her guardian . . . and warning of imminent danger. Despite the obvious sparks between them, Jewel discovers a relationship is forbidden, and the more she learns about dark, brooding Roman, she begins to question who she can even believe—the family who raised her, or the supposed sworn protector who claims they’ve been lying to her all along.

As she struggles to uncover who her family has really been running from, she is forced to hide her birthmark that reveals who she is. With new realities surfacing, unexplained powers appearing, and two tempting boys vying for her heart, Jewel battles to learn who she can trust in an ever growing sea of lies, hoping she’ll make it through her seventeenth birthday alive.

And finally, a dystopian. This looks so good.

 Release Date: October 2nd 2012

 Inhale. Exhale. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe . . .

The world is dead.
The survivors live under the protection of Breathe, the corporation that found a way to manufacture oxygen-rich air.

has been stealing for a long time. She’s a little jittery, but not terrified. All she knows is that she’s never been caught before. If she’s careful, it’ll be easy. If she’s careful.

should be worried about Alina and a bit afraid for himself, too, but even though this is dangerous, it’s also the most interesting thing to happen to him in ages. It isn’t every day that the girl of your dreams asks you to rescue her.

wants to tell him that none of this is fair; they’d planned a trip together, the two of them, and she’d hoped he’d discover her out here, not another girl.

And as they walk into the Outlands with two days’ worth of oxygen in their tanks, everything they believe will be shattered. Will they be able to make it back? Will they want to?

Do you guys have any books you're excited for?

I CAN'T wait to read Once, the sequel to Eve. And these are all drool-worthy, by the way.

Angela Brown said...

Yeah, me and horror just seem to have a problem. It loves to spark my imagination to thinking the shadows in the corners of my bedroom are actually hiding places for soul stealers or someting. So I can support horr authors but not sure if I can read the novel.


Love the choices here.

They all sounds awesome. Especially Ten. Reminds me of the days I used to devour Christopher Pike novels.

I've never read a horror book before. And I go back and forth on my opinion of scary movies--sometimes I love them and sometimes I'm too scared. It just depends on my mood. But Ten sounds really interesting, so maybe I'll check it out as a "Halloween" read!

Also, that Breathe book sounds amazing! Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Meredith said...

I'm not that into horror, but Ten looks amazing! I'll definitely be reading that one. With the lights on. :)

Jessie Humphries said...

TEN sounds amazing. It was the Butler with the candlestick!

Ruth Josse said...

Is it weird that I can read scary stuff but not watch it? All these look really good! You have great taste. :)

Steph Sinkhorn said...

TEN definitely looks relevant to my interests!

Kelley said...

I can't wait for Insurgent! (The sequel to Divergent :))

And Breathe sounds SO GOOD!

Sarah Pearson said...

Oh my, that last one sounds amazing!

I don't do horror either. I don't know if I even read the first one. I'm reading Possession right now and another Artemis Fowl is next on the list :)
