Throwback Thursday (34)

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...

Black and White
The Icarus Project #1
By:  Jackie Kessler & Caitlin Kittredge

Aaaa... I loved the idea of this book, superheros and that gray area we all know to well.  It sounds like an amazing read.  And I've enjoyed books by both these authors.  So what else can you ask for? ... More reading time? 

Goodreads Synopsis:
It's the ultimate battle of good versus good.

They were best friends at an elite academy for superheroes in training, but now Callie Bradford, code name Iridium, and Joannie Greene, code name Jet, are mortal enemies. Jet is a by-the-book hero, using her Shadow power to protect the citizens of New Chicago. Iridium, with her mastery of light, runs the city’s underworld. For the past five years the two have played an elaborate, and frustrating, game of cat and mouse.

But now playtime’s over. Separately Jet and Iridium uncover clues that point to a looming evil, one that is entwined within the Academy. As Jet works with Bruce Hunter—a normal man with an extraordinary ability to make her weak in the knees—she becomes convinced that Iridium is involved in a scheme that will level the power structure of America itself. And Iridium, teaming with the mysterious vigilante called Taser, uncovers an insidious plot that’s been a decade in the making…a plot in which Jet is key.

They’re both right. And they’re both wrong. Because nothing is as simple as Black and White.

  1. You need to read this! I read it last year and it was great - one of my favourites. It was also one of the first books I ever reviewed for my blog. (Have a look if you don't believe me! http://melsrandomblogs.blogspot.com/2010/09/black-and-white-icarus-project-1-review.html )

    Sadly I have the sequel waiting to be read in my own tbr pile...must get better at reading books by authors I like/series I love!

  2. I love how the color scheme of the cover mimics the title. But the title itself...not so memorable.
