What Came Out Today?

Five books were released today! January has been particularly insane, with TWENTY TWO (omg!) book releases, and there is only ONE more left after today, but we still have eleven more crazy months left!

The five books that came out today are. . .

Seraph of Sorrow by MarryJanice Davidson:

Half weredragon. Half beaststalker. All heart.
Slowly coming into her own, Jennifer Scales just may be the bridge to bring the two warring sides of her family together—provided she can survive learning the most ancient skills of dragonkind.

This is the fourth book in the Jennifer Scales series, and sounds just as amazing as the ones preceding it--and hopefully following it. I have not yet read any of these books, but i suppose in had better start on them; they honestly look good! To read excerpts from the first novel in the series, click on the book's title: Jennifer Scales and the ancient Furnace



This full House by Virginia Euwer Wolff:
(the publishers site says it is released today, borders site says its released on February First. I may happen to be wrong. So kill me.)
Each discovery disturbs the arrangements of the known world, and it is our job
to stay alert to all possibilities.

LaVaughn believes she is keeping alert to all possibilities. She has made it through the projects, she's gotten over heartbreak, she's grown up, and now she's been admitted to the Women in Science program that might finally be her ticket to COLLEGE. But the discoveries she makes during her senior year in high school--two girls pregnant, with very few options--disturb everything in her known world. And in an effort to bring together people who should love each other, she jeopardizes the one prize she has sought her whole life long.

When do you know whether you're doing the right thing? What happens when you can't find a way to make lemonade out of lemons? Virginia Euwer Wolff takes on the biggest questions--about life and love, certainly, but also about girls and women, sacrifice and compassion--and has something quite rev-elatory to say about them in this full house.
Okay, i personally think that this book looks fantastic! The cover is cool, plus I love these kind of books, the ones that question what you know, see, think, and feel--and life itself.

No More Us for You by David Hernandez:

For a life to come together, sometimes it first has to fall completely apart.

Isabel is a regular seventeen-year-old girl, still reeling from the pain of her boyfriend's tragic death exactly one year ago.

Carlos is a regular seventeen-year-old guy, loves red licorice and his friends, and works at a fancy art museum for some extra cash.

The two have no connection until they both meet Vanessa, an intriguing new transfer student with a mysterious past. While Vanessa is the link that brings these two very different lives together, will she be the one that can also tear them apart?

In his stunningly beautiful second novel, David Hernandez gives his readers a poetic and profound story that tells of two completely different teenagers and how through everyday life and monumental tragedy lies endless possibility.

This books description reminds me of Sarah Dessens books. With the two completely different people meeting by chance. . . and changing eachothers lives. I dont know why, but these books always GET to me somehow. This is a MUST READ! (and the cover is cool; i love the books with candy on the covers)

As with the book preceding this, you can 'Browse Inside' this book by clicking here and then clicking the 'Browse Inside' which, yet again, is to the right of the image, and above the 'Buy Now.'


Warrior Princess by Frewin Jone:

"You can be a warrior, if you choose to be."

It takes just a moment for fifteen-year-old Branwen's life to change forever. In the blink of an eye the Saxons attack and her brother is killed. Almost as quickly, she is sent away from her home to a neighboring stronghold where she'll be safe from harm. Now Branwen lives as a princess should—surrounded by exquisite things and lavish quarters. But deep down remains the soul of a warrior.

Just when Branwen is sure she has been pushed to her limits, a chance encounter with a mystical woman in white forces her to question everything—and everyone—around her. With no time to lose, Branwen must make a choice: continue in the path her parents intended for her . . . or step into the role of true Warrior Princess.
Book looks good, covers cool. . . why not?

Envy: A Luxe Novel by Ana Godberson:

Jealous whispers.

Old rivalries.

New betrayals.

Two months after Elizabeth Holland's dramatic homecoming, Manhattan eagerly awaits her return to the pinnacle of society. When Elizabeth refuses to rejoin her sister Diana's side, however, those watching New York's favorite family begin to suspect that all is not as it seems behind the stately doors of No. 17 Gramercy Park South.

Farther uptown, Henry and Penelope Schoonmaker are the city's most celebrated couple. But despite the glittering diamond ring on Penelope's finger, the newlyweds share little more than scorn for each other. And while the newspapers call Penelope's social-climbing best friend, Carolina Broad, an heiress, her fortune—and her fame—are anything but secure, especially now that one of society's darlings is slipping tales to the eager press.

In this next thrilling installment of Anna Godbersen's bestselling Luxe series, Manhattan's most envied residents appear to have everything they desire: Wealth. Beauty. Happiness. But sometimes the most practiced smiles hide the most scandalous secrets. . . .

THis eagerly awaited third enstallment to the Luxe series continues with its twists and turns, and i just LOVE all of the covers for these books--very intriguing!

I think all of these looks fantastic, but some more than others. Comment, and tell me what YOU think!
