Welcome to Stocktake Saturday! This feature is where I share some news with you and then show you all the bookish goodies I got over the week.
New covers! (links to Goodreads)
- Dance of the Red Death (Masque of the Red Death #2) by Bethany Griffin.
- Fractured (Slated #2) by Teri Terry
- Boundless (Unearthly #3) by Cynthia Hand – the Australian cover (sorry, but I love the AU covers for this series a lot more than the US ones)
Simon & Schuster has signed two new YA titles from Sarah Alderson. The first is The Sound, in which aspiring music journalist Ren Kingston takes a job nannying for a wealthy family on the exclusive island of Nantucket, playground for Boston’s elite, hoping for a low-key summer reading books and blogging about bands. Boys are firmly off the agenda. What she doesn’t count on is falling in with a bunch of party-loving private school kids who are hiding some dark secrets; falling (possibly) in love with the local bad boy; and falling out with a dangerous serial killer. The second novel, Control, is told over a 24-hour period and follows the story of Liva, who has witnessed a brutal murder but realises that even under police protection she is not safe. The murderers are coming for her, unless she can stop them first. You can read the press release here.
This week I am Waiting on … Soulbroken by Heather Brewer.
