2013 New Releases

I've recently realized that I've forgotten to make a post all about the new year releases I am looking forward to and am dying to get my hands on. So in no particular order!

1. Level 2 - Lenore Appelhans
I haven't heard that much about this book: only that its a dystopian and that cover is just beyond awesome. Plus, I haven't read a lot of books that have limbo/purgatory etc as the main theme so I'm definitely excited to see what the story has in store.

2. The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) - Julie Kagawa
I am sooo excited for this book, especially since I loved the author's first book. I just loved the blend of dystopia and vampires, they are like two of my favourite genres so I loved the story. Allie is a great kick-ass heroine, just what the YA genre needs. Cannot wait.

3. Spintered - A. G. Howard
I'm really excited for this book as the concept sounds really unique. To be honest after having read the first Alice in Wonderland book I can't say that I loved it, but I'm interested in this one because the story sounds really cool and imaginative. Plus, it has pretty purple designs on each chapter header and the cover is just stunning.
6. Fractured (Slated #2) - Teri Terry
I can't wait to read this book because I loved the first book Slated. It was full of twists and turns and just leaves you wanting to uncover the mystery. Also, you don't find that many dystopian books that aren't set in the USA, so its always refreshing to read some set in places like the UK, like this one is.

7. The Madman's Daughter - Megan Shepherd
I haven't heard that much about this book, only that its a retelling of a H. G. Wells story and that its sort of gruesome, which is always exciting to read about. I really love the USA cover, much more than the UK edition so I'm definitely looking forward to checking it out.

8. Dance of Shadows (Dance of Shadows #1) - Yelena Black
I'm really looking forward to this one, firstly because I've read the first three chapters and they were pretty gripping and exciting so I'm definitely excited to see where the story leads to. The other reason is that it seems to be marketed as a Black Swan type of story; I really loved that movie so I'm definitely interested in reading more books set in the ballet world. And that cover just blows me away!
