This week's pre-publication "We can't wait to read it!" selections are...
Author: Coralee Dean
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Published by: Simon Pulse
Ally is devastated when a scandalous photo of her is texted around school. With her reputation in shambles and her life essentially over, she hides out in a back hallway, trying to figure out where everything went wrong.
Elijah has spent time in that hallway too. He landed there after taking a whole bottle of sleeping pills. Now he can see ghosts, and he knows what Ally has yet to suspect--that she's already half dead, and one choice away from never coming back. Elijah has loved Ally for years and would do anything to save her from the in-between place. But if she's going to live, Ally must face her inner demons and find the will to save herself.
Told in interwoven verse narratives, this crushingly honest and poetic exploration of pain and redemption will appeal to fans of Ellen Hopkins. (Summary from Goodreads)
I think since this story is written in verse it will make her thoughts clearer and her feelings more emotionally powerful for the reader.
Author: Melissa de la Cruz
Release date: September 25, 2012
Published by: ATOM/Hyperion
Lawson and his brothers escaped from the underworld and now lead desperate, dangerous lives. They're pursued by the Hounds of Hell from one town to the next, never calling any place home. But when the hounds finally catch up with them and capture the girl Lawson loves, the hunters become the hunted. Lawson will stop at nothing to track down the hounds, even if the chances of saving Tala are slim...
The only hope he has lies in Bliss Llewellyn. Bliss, too, has lost someone to the beasts and will do anything to get them back--even if it means joining forces with the insolent, dangerously goo-looking boy with a wolf's soul. (Summary from Goodreads.)
I've been waiting for this FOREVER! I thoroughly enjoyed Cruz's Blue Blood series and can't wait for the last book in that series, but Bliss is/was my absolutely favorite character in the series so when I learned that there was going to be a spin-off series based around her I WAS SO EXCITED! And now the it's almost here! Plus, it's GORGEOUS!
What are you waiting on this week?
