Looking Forward To...(38)

There are so many amazing books already on the shelves and new ones coming out.

For a list of books yet to be released I'm looking to get, you can also look on my right Sidebar at the ever growing list titled Desired Reads - just scroll down. Of course there are tones of other new books to come out that are amazing as well, but these ones are part of series I have already started or for one reason or another caught my eye (and haven't seen much on other blogs yet). But I will highlight one here each week.

(mentioned in order of Release Date then Alphabetical if there are more than one book coming out on the same date.)

Next Book Is...

Razorland #1
By:  Ann Aguirre
Due Out:  April 12, 2011

Well, Ann Aguirre is one author I have enjoyed reading.  I've only read the Corine Solomon series and loved it thus far.  I can so see this series being made into movies, and loving them!  Which is hard as usually the books turned movie don't turn out well, but if these are done to follow suit with the books they would be amazing.  Now, so many amazing things have been flying around about her Jax series... which I DO NEED to get to.

But, this is a new series to dive into with Ann...

Goodreads Synopsis:

In Deuce's world, people earn the right to a name only if they survive their first fifteen years. By that point, each unnamed 'brat' has trained into one of three groups-Breeders, Builders, or Hunters, identifiable by the number of scars they bear on their arms. 

Deuce has wanted to be a Huntress for as long as she can remember. As a Huntress, her purpose is clear--to brave the dangerous tunnels outside the enclave and bring back meat to feed the group while evading ferocious monsters known as Freaks. She's worked toward this goal her whole life, and nothing's going to stop her, not even a beautiful, brooding Hunter named Fade. 

When the mysterious boy becomes her partner, Deuce's troubles are just beginning. Down below, deviation from the rules is punished swiftly and harshly, and Fade doesn't like following orders. At first she thinks he's crazy, but as death stalks their sanctuary, and it becomes clear the elders don't always know best, Deuce wonders if Fade might be telling the truth. 

Her partner confuses her; she's never known a boy like him before, as prone to touching her gently as to using his knives with feral grace. As Deuce's perception shifts, so does the balance in the constant battle for survival. The mindless Freaks, once considered a threat only due to their sheer numbers, show signs of cunning and strategy... but the elders refuse to heed any warnings. Despite imminent disaster, the enclave puts their faith in strictures and sacrifice instead. No matter how she tries, Deuce cannot stem the dark tide that carries her far from the only world she's ever known.


  1. I have many, many, MANY books I'm looking forward to, but today I should finally have Allison Pang's A Brush of Darkness in my hot little hands (Borders PROMISED it will be in today's mail...just another hour or so...) I can hardly wait! :)

  2. Sounds awesome! And I really like the cover on this one!

  3. You need to read her "Skin" series written as Ava Gray too....

    Enclave is on my waiting impatiently list and it better be as good as her other books because the hype has been going strong since she announced it's name in the first place and then changed the name and cover...

  4. Ooh, I didn't realize Aguirre has a new series coming out. I've enjoyed several of her books and would love to read this one. Thanks for the heads up.

  5. Oh my!!! This one is on my YA Challenge. I really want to read this title!!

  6. Rissatoo - So glad you got the book! And it sounds so good. (A Brush of Darkness) Hope you enjoyed it. :)

    Melissa (Books&Things) - lol. ;D I hope you get a chance to get to Ann Aguirre's books, but maybe this would be a place to start. :)

    Alexia - Glad you like. And the cover is cool. Simple, but very cool.

    Jackie B - Oh, I really have heard great things about the Skin series. :)Hmm, I didn't know all that about the changed name. Cool. Thanks!

    Simcha - You are very welcome! So glad I could let you know. :)

    Chasity - Oh, I signed up for a YA challenge so maybe I could add this to the list when I get there. :) Thanks!
