Author: Cat Patrick
Release Date: May 8, 2012 
Published by: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.
A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency's true goals, she realizes she's at the center of something much larger-and more sinister-than she ever imagined. (Summary from Goodreads)

Holy cow...I am SO curious now! Aren't you? I have to read this now!

Author: Leigh Bardugo
Release Date: June 15, 2012
Published by: Henry Holt and Co.

Surrounded by enemies, the once- great nation of Ravka has been torn in two by the Shadow Fold, a swath of near impenetrable darkness crawling with monsters who feast on human flesh. Now its fate may rest on the shoulders of one lonely refugee.
Alina Starkov has never been good at anything. But when her regiment is attacked on the Fold and her best friend is brutally injured, Alina reveals a dormant power that saves his life-a power that could be the key to setting her war-ravaged country free. Wrenched from everything she knows, Alina is whisked away to the royal court to be trained as a member of the Grisha, the magical elite led by the mysterious Darkling.
Yet nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. With darkness looming and an entire kingdom depending on her untamed power, Alina will have to confront the secrets of the Grisha...and the secrets of her heart. (Summary from Goodreads)

This is a rich and beautiful trailer of a novel I'm hoping will fall into the same category as the Graceling Realm. I love the last image of the girl! Plus, the cover is so pretty.
