WoW –7/6/11: Hot Upcoming YA Releases!

WoW is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine and showcases upcoming releases we're dying to read!


Jan 2012
Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever. 
She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. 
Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen. 
As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...
One of the most awesome covers this year!


Jan 2012
It starts with an itch you just can't shake. Then comes a fever and a tickle in your throat. A few days later, you'll be blabbing your secrets and chatting with strangers like they’re old friends. Three more, and the paranoid hallucinations kick in.And then you're dead. 
When sixteen-year-old Kaelyn lets her best friend leave for school without saying goodbye, she never dreams that she might not see him again. But then a strange virus begins to sweep through her small island community, infecting young and old alike. As the dead pile up, the government quarantines the island: no one can leave, and no one can come back.Those still healthy must fight for the island’s dwindling supplies, or lose all chance of survival. As everything familiar comes crashing down, Kaelyn joins forces with a former rival and discovers a new love in the midst of heartbreak. When the virus starts to rob her of friends and family, she clings to the belief that there must be a way to save the people she holds dearest.Because how will she go on if there isn't?
Something new from Megan Crewe is always worth checking out!


Sept 2011
Ava is welcomed home from the hospital by a doting mother, lively friends, and a crush finally beginning to show interest. There's only one problem: Ava can't remember any of them - and can't shake the eerie feeling that she's not who they say she is.
Ava struggles to break through her amnesiac haze as she goes through the motions of high-school life, but the memories that surface take place in a very different world, where Ava and familiar-faced friends are under constant scrutiny and no one can be trusted. Ava doesn't know what to make of these visions, or of the boy who is at the center of them all, until he reappears in her life and offers answers . . . but only in exchange for her trust.
Scary idea and great premise!


Dec 2011
Based in Egyptian mythology and set in modern-day Washington, D.C.,Sisters of Isis follows the lives of Meri, Sudi, and Dalila, three fifteen-year-old girls who have just discovered they are descendants of very powerful ancestors—Egyptian pharaohs. From these ancestors they’ve inherited magical powers of transformation, the ability to cast spells from the Book of Thoth, and, as they will soon learn, the responsibility of protecting the world from the evil forces of Chaos.
This looks like a re-release but still good!


Jan 2012
High school can be a battlefield, but for Lily Parker, surviving at St. Sophia’s School for Girls is a matter of life and death... Protecting Chicago from the dark side can be an exhausting job, especially when you’re a sophomore. So when the girls of St. Sophia’s start gearing up for Sneak, their fall formal, Lily decides to join in on some good, old-fashioned party prep—even if it means not giving demons, vampires and the twisted magic users known as Reapers her undivided attention. But when a Reaper infiltrates the school, Lily doesn’t forget what she’s sworn to protect. She reaches deep into herself to draw out her magic—and finds that it’s gone. And it turns out she’s not alone. A magical blackout has slammed through paranormal Chicago, and no one knows what—or who—caused it. But Lily knows getting back her magic is worth the risk of going behind enemy lines..
More of Lilly's exciting adventures!


Oct 2011
The girls at Modesta High School feel like they're stuck in some anti-feminist time warp-they're faced with sexism at every turn, and they've had enough. Sponsored by their new art teacher, Ms. Stark, they band together to form the Daughters of Eve. It's more that a school club-it's a secret society, a sisterhood. At first, it seems like they are actually changing the way guys at school treat them. But Ms. Stark urges them to take more vindictive action, and it starts to feel more like revenge-brutalrevenge. Blinded by their oath of loyalty, the Daughters of Eve become instruments of vengeance. Can one of them break the spell before real tragedy strikes?
Sounds like good intentions turn evil! 


What are you waiting for?

All those looks so good! I think I need to also check out Daughters of Eve! I haven't heard of that one.

Jenny N. said...

I've seen some great cover reveals lately and Everneath is up there in my favourites list. Also looking forward to Charmfall and like that all the covers for that series all match.

Missie said...

What the...?

How the heck was my body used on the cover of EVERNEATH without my permission?

Gonna have to look into that.

Okay, didn't know about As I Wake before, but Wow!

I didn't know those books but they really sound awesome. And the covers are gorgeous. I love Everneath's one.

Happy reading ;D

i almost picked everneath this week, too!

Sara said...

Sisters of Isis is on my to read list. I read the originals a couple years ago from the library and really enjoyed them. I love when they combine little books.

Orchid said...

Surprisingly enough, I don't think I have read Daughters of Eve and I've read a good chunk of Lois Duncan's books (loving the new covers though).

The Way We Fall and Everneath both sound like great books. Think I'll add them to my wishlist before I forget about them. =)

Mimi Valentine said...

Oh my gosh, those all sound like such awesome picks! Especially Everneath (because I've heard so many awesome things about it!) and As I Wake (because I just read my first Elizabeth Scott novel and it was great!)!

I have several new additions to my TBR pile ;)

Dottie (Tink's Place) said...

So many good reads to look forward to.... Everneath definitely grabs me and Chloe Neill...no need to say more!

As I Wake looks interesting too...adding one more book to my list!

Dottie :)

Jenny said...

I'm so excited for Everneath I can hardly even stand it:) And that cover is beyond gorgeous! I hadn't seen the new cover/title for 3rd book in the Dark Elite series, it's absolutely beautiful as well! Can't wait for that one, I adore Chloe Neill:)

Felicia said...

I cant wait for Charmfall too! Love the Dark Elite series :) Thanks for sharing about The Way We Fall and As I Wake, they both sound really awesome.

Agreed. That first cover blows me away. I want that dress for myself.

Great books but I think "The Way We Fall" is the best sounding of them all. I love this kind of book!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Oooo, these are all new books to me. And they look and sound amazing! :) Thanks for sharing all these. I'm going to have to keep an eye out.
