New Book Releases

So I decided to add another type of post to my blog. Each Monday I will give a list of newly released YA books that I think are worth giving a read and that are generating some buzz. This is not a comprehensive list of all new releases, just the ones that caught my eye. I'll give you the link to the books' Goodreads pages so you can see what they're about, see what others are saying, and add them to your "to read" list if you agree with me.  


The Sweetest Dark by Shanna Abe
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13257637-the-sweetest-dark

**Haven't seen anything about this but the synopsis looks promising. Magic, England, mystery boys and maybe dragons? Mysterious and fantastical and right up my alley!

In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13112915-in-the-shadow-of-blackbirds
**There's been a lot of buzz about this one. Winters has been doing a blog tour so she's done several interviews and contests for advanced copies of her debut book. There's been a lot of high praise from other authors who've already read it too. 





Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9943270-dark-triumph

**I read the first book in this series, Grave Mercy, not thinking it would be as good as it was. I tore through it pretty quickly. Dark Triumph is told by a different main character and is already getting a lot of praise for being just as good as the first. 




Rise by Anna Carey
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14811943-rise

**This is the last book in the EVE series and while I haven't read any of the other two, I might have to pick them up. A lot of people I follow on Twitter have been raving about these books and their conclusion, Rise.





The Rising by Kelley Armstrong
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11864728-the-rising

**I read Armstrong's previous trilogy, the DARKEST POWERS trilogy, and I really enjoyed them. They're quick reads that are full of action. When her DARKNESS RISING trilogy started I knew I'd like them. This is the final installment and it promises a great conclusion.




Thanks for stopping by. Hope you like my new post idea. See you back here tomorrow!
