Dearest (Woodcutter Sisters #3) by Alethea Kontis
Why -> I loved the first book in this trilogy, Enchanted. If you love fairy tales this is definitely one for you. I have been waiting to read the second book, Hero, until this last one came out. I love her writing and her imagination so much.
Shutter by Courney Alameda
Why -> I'm not big on horror, but this one really caught my attention. Micheline, a descendant of the Van Helsing lineage and a tetrachromat, who can see the auras of the undead, hunts the undead. When a hunt goes awry she finds herself and her entire crew of friends in danger of dying from a curse if they don't catch the entity that slipped through their fingers. At the same time she's become a renegade agent and is being hunted by her own father. This looks seriously good.
The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand
Why -> I loved her Unearthly trilogy. Loved it. And she broke me down in that last book. And from the description of this one, I'm guessing she's definitely trying to rip my heart out with this one even more. My one line description: Lex's life hasn't been the same since her brother killed himself, and now she can't move on.
Rebound by Noelle August
Why -> Oh my gosh! I loved the first book, Boomerang. Seriously loved it. And I was lucky enough to get an e-arc of this one. LOVED it, too. I can't wait for the third book, Bounce, to release in August. Rebound tells Adam Blackwood (founder of Boomerang) and Alison Quick's (Ethan's ex) story. I wasn't sure I'd like her after reading Ethan and Mia's story, but I loved her. As they say, there are always two sides to the story.
The Return (Titans #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Why -> OMG it's Seth's story!!! If you're a fan of JLA's and have read the Covenant series then you completely understand. If you haven't then I command you to go out and read the Covenant series right now. You'll love/hate me all at once for the recommendation. And then you'll be obsessed along with me. lol The Titan series is a spin off of the Covenant series and takes place after the end of Sentinel. And stay tuned: I have a signed copy of Half Blood to giveaway in February in celebration of The Return.
A Darker Shade of Magic (#1) by Victoria Schwab
Why -> I seriously love her work. This one looks so freaking amazing. Parallel universes and magic. Ah, my kind of book for sure.
My Secret Guide to Paris by Lisa Schroeder
Why -> I'm a huge fan of anything by Lisa Schroeder; her middle grade, her young adult verse, and her children's books. Nora and her grandmother Sylvia planned a vacation to Paris to see the city Sylvia loves and has peppered Nora with stories about. But when Sylvia suddenly passes away Nora isn't sure that trip will ever happen. Until she finds a scavenger hunt packed away in her grandmother's suitcase, prompting her to continue with their planned vacation.
Unleashed (Uninvited#2) by Sophie Jordan
Why -> I haven't read the blurb to this one since the first book, Uninvited is sitting on my Kindle waiting patiently for me to read it. There are just too many books and too little time to read them. I'm hoping to get to it soon.Plus, it's an upcoming book of the month for the Colleen Houck Book Club on Goodreads.
Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood #2) by Victoria Scott
Why -> As a testament to how many books there are to read and how little time there is: I literally own all of Victoria Scott's books on my Kindle, and I'm constantly meaning to read them. This is a goal of mine this year, to read all of her books. I keep hearing how great they are.
Unchanged (Unremembered #3) by Jessica Brody
Why -> I absolutely adored Unremembered. So I waited when Unforgotten came out because I wanted to read them back to back. And now there are two novellas, Undiscovered (#1.5) and Unleashed (#2.5) to add to the stack to read. So you know what I'll be catching up on soon.
What books am I missing that you're excited about releasing in February 2015?
