New Book Alert – Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre

16 Apr

Mortal Dangers

 

Mortal Danger by Ann Aguire

Book one in the Immortal Game Series

Release Date: August 5, 2014.

 

Aight so I know this isn’t really a brand new “you heard is hear first” kind of alert… but can we all just take a minute and appreciate the badassry of this cover???

*moment of awed silence*

K thanks.

 

As per Goodreads:

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Edie Kramer has a score to settle with the beautiful people at Blackbriar Academy. Their cruelty drove her to the brink of despair, and four months ago, she couldn’t imagine being strong enough to face her senior year. But thanks to a Faustian compact with the enigmatic Kian, she has the power to make the bullies pay. She’s not supposed to think about Kian once the deal is done, but devastating pain burns behind his unearthly beauty, and he’s impossible to forget.

In one short summer, her entire life changes, and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly… bad things are happening. It’s a heady rush, seeing her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows. In this murky morass of devil’s bargains, she isn’t sure who—or what–she can trust. Not even her own mind…

So from what I hear around the block this book is freaking dark. Edgy and intense and is meant to appeal to both YA and adults.

New Book Alert: Rooms by Lauren Oliver

15 Aug

As per Goodreads:

Lauren Oliver, bestselling author of the young adultDelirium” series, will publish a book for adults in the fall of 2014.

“As instantly gripping as it was elegantly written,”
the book’s editor, Lee Boudreaux,
told the New York Times of reading “Rooms” for the first time.

Release Date: 2014

 

My Reaction:

So my first though was:

blog

Because this is a big deal!

I am always interested to see how a YA author can transition into the adult genre. Honestly, there are very few who can do it fluidly. But Lauren is a great author and I think she might actually do better as an adult fiction write than a YA author because she’s amazing at creating relatable characters and adults tend to appreciate that art more.

Plus, I am REALLY happy Lauren has so many books in the works right now. Cannot wait to read them allllll
