YA Releases

I’m so sorry for the formatting of the covers. WordPress is being a pain in the ass.

Here are YA release and future YA releases that we are itching to get our hands on:

The Iron King by Julia Kagawa. Release date: Out now.

Blurb taken from author’s official website:

MEGHAN CHASE HAS A SECRET DESTINY— ONE SHE COULD NEVER HAVE IMAGINED…

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.


Tagged by Mara Purnhagen. Release Date: March, 2010. Review coming soon.

Blurb taken from Fantastic Fiction:

Can Kate Morgan stand up for herself – without being labelled a snitch?

Kate is just as confused as her best friend, Lan, when she arrives at Cleary High to find the building’s been “tagged” with a life-size graffiti mural. Could the culprit be one of their friends or classmates? And is the kind-of-amazing creation really vandalism, or a work of art? She’s tempted to stay out of it – mostly because, as the police chief’s daughter, she’s worried about being labeled a snitch. But when the same mysterious graffiti starts appearing throughout the state, putting more pressure on the authorities to catch the vandal, her investigative instincts kick in.

Now Eli, Kate’s favorite coworker at the local coffee shop, is MIA. With Lan preoccupied with her own boy troubles, Kate needs to figure out some things on her own. Like why she can’t stop thinking about Eli. And what she will do when all the clues about the graffiti point to someone she’s close to.

The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong. Release date: April, 2010.

Blurb taken from author’s official website:

Only two weeks ago, life was all too predictable. But that was before I saw my first ghost. Now, along with my supernatural friends Tori, Derek, and Simon, I’m on the run from the Edison Group, which genetically altered us as part of their sinister experiment. We’re hiding in a safe house that might not be as safe as it seems. We’ll be gone soon anyway, back to rescue those we’d left behind and to take out the Edison Group . . . or so we hope.

Kiss of Death by Rachel Caine. Release Date: April, 2010.

The 8th titles in the Morganville Vampire series. No blurb available yet. Go here for more information on the series: Morganville Vampires

Radiant Shadows by Melissa Marr. Release date: May, 2010.

Radiant Shadows is the fourth book in the enchanting Wicked Lovely series. No blurb as of yet for the fourth book, or one I can’t find. These blurbs do seem to be hiding from me. Go here for more information on the series: Wicked Lovely

Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead. Release date: May, 2010.

Blurb taken from Fantastic Fiction:

Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong.

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s – and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and she knows he’s out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true – Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. Only this time, he won’t rest until Rose joins him – forever.

Forget You by Jennifer Echols. Release date: July, 2010.

Blurb taken from author’s official website:

There’s a lot Zoey would like to forget. Like how her father has knocked up his twenty-four-year old girlfriend. Like Zoey’s fear that the whole town will find out about her mom’s nervous breakdown. Like darkly handsome bad boy Doug taunting her at school. With her life about to become a complete mess, Zoey fights back the only way she knows how, using her famous attention to detail to make sure she’s the perfect daughter, the perfect student, and the perfect girlfriend to ultra-popular football player Brandon.

But then Zoey is in a car crash, and the next day there’s one thing she can’t remember at all—the entire night before. Did she go parking with Brandon, like she planned? And if so, why does it seem like Brandon is avoiding her? And why is Doug—of all people—suddenly acting as if something significant happened between the two of them? Zoey dimly remembers Doug pulling her from the wreck, but he keeps referring to what happened that night as if it was more, and it terrifies Zoey to admit how much is a blank to her. Controlled, meticulous Zoey is quickly losing her grip on the all-important details of her life—a life that seems strangely empty of Brandon, and strangely full of Doug

MockingJay by Suzanne Collins. Release Date: August, 2010

I love the cover also! 😀

Has read it, and she said it totally rocked the awesomeness. She’s going to be doing a review of it.

I am writing the review right now 😀
The Iron King is wonderful, and its actually a real fantasy romance and the opposite of the Twilightesque YA books out at the moment. DEFINITELY go and get it – I cant wait for the second book especially how it ended!

I read the first three of M. Marr, but I don’t know, she didn’t really pull me into her universe so I won’t pick the fourth,… 🙂

I’m waiting for the last Morganville book though.:p
