Romeo and Juliet. The most tragic love story in history . . .is a lie.
Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love
Awesome twist on a  classic, and gorgeous cover!

There was a time when I prayed for Rachel to be real. Until the night I learned she'd always planned to kill me.
When Dani was eight, she fell from a building. No one believed her claim that she was pushed by Rachel . . . her imaginary friend. It took years of therapy to convince Dani that Rachel wasn't real.
Now fifteen, Dani wants to make it as a dancer. But a deadly freak accident sends Dani a terrifying message: Rachel is back, she's real, and she'll stop at nothing to kill Dani.
Complicating matters is Jesse, the school bad boy who's being stalked by his own invisible childhood nemesis. Dani and Jesse join forces to learn why their astral tormentors are back. Their investigation leads to a horrifying discovery—and the terrible experiment that binds them to each other.

Sounds appropriately creepy. Like the 'slasher' look of the cover but the girl looks a bit strange. Maybe it's the psychotic imaginary friend!

It's about a servant girl named Tess in 1912, who wants to escape from the house where she works, and most particularly the lecherous young lord of the manor. But that's not her biggest problem. While on a voyage to America, where she plans to escape and start a new life, she meets Alec, who's ruggedly handsome, fabulously wealthy, intelligent and yet so clearly troubled that she'd rather not fall for him, but she does. That also is not her biggest problem. Alec, it turns out, is a werewolf ... one cursed to change every night, unless and until he surrenders his independence and joins the Brotherhood, a pack of violently misogynistic werewolves who have been tracking him for months. You'd think that would be their biggest problem, wouldn't you? 
But no. Their biggest problem -- though they don't know it yet -- is that they're aboard the RMS Titanic
Love the Titanic angle! The cover is reminiscent of SO SHELLY and HEREAFTER...but where's the glacier??

Wendy has the ability to see souls that have not moved on. They seek her, yearn for her . . . or what she can do for them. Without Wendy's power to send them into the light, the Lost, the souls that have died unnaturally young, are doomed to wander in the Never forever.
Delivering too many souls would be deadly for Wendy and then she meets Piotr, the first Rider and guardian of the Lost, whose memory of his decades in the Never has faded away. With his old-fashioned charms, and haunted kindness, he understands Wendy in ways no one living ever could, and she's falling for a boy who she may have to send into the light. 
But there are darker forces looking for the Lost, trying to regain the youth and power, and only Wendy and Piotr can save them—but at what cost?
Looks interesting. Not crazy about the girl on the cover but like the ominous bird skeletons lurking in the background.  

That's it for now...
What are you waiting for?
