Every week Breaking the Spine hosts the bookish meme for book bloggers to share what books they are waiting on to be released!  This week I’m waiting on:

Release Date: February 2, 2016

Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She’s so desperate to reach the realm that she’s willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he’s been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world–and each other–the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe…

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted for us book blogger types by the Broke and the Bookish. They provide a topic, and all of us participants post our answers on our blogs and we hop around checking out one another’s answers! This week’s topic is:

Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For

1. The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings
– Mark my words, this book is one that you will need to be on the lookout for in 2014.

2. Dear Killer by Katherine Ewell
– Okay, so the top two books on this list clearly feature murder/killing as a main subject. I can’t help it, theyboth sound so awesome.

3.  Red Rising by Pierce Brown
– I have super high expectations for this one, so I hope it measures up!

4. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller
– Historical Fiction! Early 20th Century is such a wealthy time period for stories, and this one just sounds brilliant.

5. End Times by Anna Schumacher
– This novel for some reason is giving off some of the same vibes that I got from Gated by Amy Christine Parker.  I have a feeling that this town the main character arrives in will seem like a cult, something that is always fascinating. I could also be completely off.

6. Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson
– I honestly have no idea what this book is really about, something sinister I gather, but it sounds really interesting. 

7. Alienated by Melissa Landers
– There seems to be more and more books about aliens and Earth, etc. It does give me the satisfaction of pretending that Doctor Who has influenced literature!

8. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
– Historical Fiction is one of my favorite genres and this novel is set during the turbulent years of Nazi regime in Germany.

9. Nil by Lynne Matson
– I’m not 100% sure about this novel yet, because the synopsis really reminds me of “The Most Dangerous Game,” a short story by Richard Connell, and it also seems reminiscent of The Maze Runner by James Dashner.  Either way, it has my attention and I want to read it.

10. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
-Realistic Contemporary fiction is something I need to read more of, and this sounds like a sweet and endearing novel.

 

What debuts are you looking forward to?

Waiting on Wednesday

Every week Breaking the Spine hosts the bookish meme for book bloggers to share what books they are waiting on to be released!  This week I’m waiting on: 
 
 
Release Date: February 4, 2014
Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them. 
 
Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket. 
 
Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking. 
 
But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class. 
 
Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.
