Title: Options
Author: Abbi Glines
Genre: New Adult
Release Date:  December 5, 2013

Synopsis:

Two paths.
Two completely different roads.
Each one standing before me.
Each one holding a different destiny.

In life you're just supposed to choose one path.
In life you're not given the chance at choosing one specific future.

Until now.
Until me.

Why am I different? I don't know. But I'm going to see those roads and walk down each one. When it's over I'll know which one to choose because I'll know my - options.



Title: Chaos of Stars
Author: Kiersten White
Genre: YA Supernatural
Release Date:  September 10, 2013
Pages: 288

Synopsis:

Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.

Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.

Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all.



Title: Conjured
Author: Sarah Beth Durst
Genre: YA Paranormal/Suspense
Release Date:  September 3, 2013
Pages: 368

Synopsis:

Eve has a new home, a new face, and a new name—but no memories of her past. She’s been told that she's in a witness protection program. That she escaped a dangerous magic-wielding serial killer who still hunts her. The only thing she knows for sure is that there is something horrifying in her memories the people hiding her want to access—and there is nothing they won’t say—or do—to her to get her to remember.

At night she dreams of a tattered carnival tent and buttons being sewn into her skin. But during the day, she shelves books at the local library, trying to not let anyone know that she can do things—things like change the color of her eyes or walk through walls. When she does use her strange powers, she blacks out and is drawn into terrifying visions, returning to find that days or weeks have passed—and she’s lost all short-term memories. Eve must find out who and what she really is before the killer finds her—but the truth may be more dangerous than anyone could have ever imagined.



Title: Perfect Ruin
Author: Lauren Destefano
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date:  October 1,  2013
Pages: 356

Synopsis:

On Internment, the floating island in the clouds where 16-year-old Morgan Stockhour lives, getting too close to the edge can lead to madness. Even though Morgan's older brother, Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. She tries her best not to mind that her life is orderly and boring, and if she ever wonders about the ground, and why it is forbidden, she takes solace in best friend Pen and her betrothed, Basil.

Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from investigating, especially when she meets Judas. He is the boy being blamed for the murder — betrothed to the victim — but Morgan is convinced of his innocence. Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what she will find — or who she will lose.

Title: The Clockwork Scarab
Author: Coleen Gleason
Genre: YA Steampunk/Mystery
Release Date:  September 17,  2013
Pages: 356

Synopsis:
Two young women of similar age and standing have disappeared: one found dead and the other still missing. The only clue to connect them is a small Egyptian clockwork scarab. Only Miss Stoker and Miss Holmes are well-positioned enough—similar in age and stature as they are to the victims—to investigate. An unlikely pair, the fierce Evaline Stoker and logical Mina Holmes must follow in the footsteps of their infamous families—Miss Holmes has inherited her Uncle Sherlock’s keen investigative skills, while Miss Stoker has accepted her family calling as a hunter of the undead. The partners must find a way to work together, while navigating the advances of a strange yet handsome American, a clever Scotland Yard investigator, and a cunning thief, to solve the mystery of the clockwork scarabs.

Set in steam punk London, steeped in Egyptian mythology and literary references, with a surprising time travel twist and compelling romantic triangles, Colleen Gleason has crafted a fast-paced and romantic debut young adult novel.
 
That's all for today's Release Crazed, love bugs. I'm so thrilled over these books that I've actually purchased one of them just now... yes... while I've written this blog post. *sigh* My obsession is both a blessing and a curse. 
Toodles, lovies! 
Until Next Blog, 
Read On!

  1. Lol, I've pre-ordered Perfect Ruin - I saw pictures of a hardback copy (pages etc) on another blog along with a rave review and I just couldn't help myself! I've heard really great things about Lauren Destafano's writing but her first series just didn't appeal to me - luckily this one does! The Chaos of Stars sounds really exciting but I couldn't really get into Paranormalcy so I want to make sure I'd like it first (I'll probably download a sample chapter from Amazon at some point). And Sarah Beth Durst, oh how I love her! She did a retelling of a fairytale/myth a few years back with a polar bear on the cover that was just amazing. I shall definitely watch out for that one! Cool list honey, thanks for spotlighting these.

    1. "Conjured" by Sarah Beth Hurst. Halfway through it now. Can't yet tell what the rating will be... I think this is one that I'll have to finish before I know for absolute certain.

      It isn't bad, though. That much I can say!
