Waiting on Wednesday: 3 Upcoming Hot YA Releases

True love’s kiss just may prove deadly....

Mirabelle’s past is shrouded in secrecy, from her parents’ tragic deaths to her guardians’ half-truths about why she can’t return to her birthplace, Beau Rivage. Desperate to see the town, Mira runs away a week before her sixteenth birthday—and discovers a world she never could have imagined.

In Beau Rivage, nothing is what it seems—the strangely pale girl with a morbid interest in apples, the obnoxious playboy who’s a beast to everyone he meets, and the chivalrous guy who has a thing for damsels in distress. Here, fairy tales come to life, curses are awakened, and ancient stories are played out again and again.

But fairy tales aren’t pretty things, and they don’t always end in happily ever after. Mira has a role to play, a fairy-tale destiny to embrace or resist. As she struggles to take control of her fate, Mira is drawn into the lives of two brothers with fairy-tale curses of their own ... brothers who share a dark secret. And she’ll find that love, just like fairy tales, can have sharp edges and hidden thorns.
Fairy tale connections!

What's worse than being blackmailed to attend a hidden school where you're treated like a second-class citizen? How about nearly getting eaten by a monster when you arrive? Or learning that your soulmate was killed in a centuries-old secret war? And then there's the evil king who's determined to rule the world unless you can stop him...
Meet Kaya, a young woman with the power to heal and the determination to fight. But struggle as she will, she remains tied to three very different men: a hero who has forsaken glory, a tyrannical ruler who wants to use Kaya, and a warrior who's stolen her heart. Kaya learns the hard way that some ties can't be broken...and blood is the strongest bond of all.
Hopefully this has lots of action!

Fierce, seductive mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist. When she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences. Almost one hundred forty years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him. For generations, love has resulted in death for the women in her family. Is it an undiagnosed genetic defect . . . or a curse? With Ezra’s help, Hester investigates her family’s strange, sad history. The answers she seeks are waiting in the graveyard, the crypt, and at the bottom of the ocean—but powerful forces will do anything to keep her from uncovering her connection to Syrenka and to the tragedy of so long ago
Mermaid drama!

What are you waiting for?

I like the sound of that 2nd one and that 3rd cover is just awesome

Unknown said...

I can't wait for Kill Me Softly myself! Fingers crossed my request will be accepted, ahhh. @.@ *wants it badly*

The other two look amazing as well, although whenever I see Monstrous beauty, I giggle at the name "Syrenka". It means mermaid in my language. ;)

My WoW is here. ♥

I love fairy tales so Kill Me Softly sounds great...also love the cover for Soulbound.

Unknown said...

I don't watch it but, Kill Me Softly sounds a bit like Once Upon a Time at first. I love the cover - it's so striking! It sounds really great too.

Midnight Bloom said...

Of your WoW picks, I'm most excited for Kill Me Softly! I love how it's fairy tale inspired! :)

Tales of Whimsy said...

MB sounds like a darker twisted Little Mermaid. LOVE it.

Julie@My5monkeys said...

those are some pretty book covers :)

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

MONSTROUS BEAUTY! I gots that one! I'm so stoked. I can't wait to dive into it. I also wouldn't mind the rest of those either! :D

Valia Lind said...

I havent heard of that first one but it sounds great! Pretty covers! Thanks for sharing!


Monstrous Beauty is already on my raider though I don't think I really read the description. It sounds so good! Kill Me Softly reminds me of that t.v. show that's on right now. I really have to read that one! I'll wait to read your review on the middle book. It sounds good, but I can't tell how much fantasy and fighting there will be. Great picks!

Ihaven't seen Soulbound around but it does look amazing!!!! Will definitely watch out for this!
