Most Anticipated Releases of March
Happy March everyone! I can't believe we're almost done with the first quarter of 2014. Oh, how time flies so fast! I know I haven't blogged for a week. That's because it's Girls' Generation's comeback. I'm a huge fan of them. And I'm currently fangirling over their releases. There are other reasons too, like the post-Olympics feeling. I'm so mad/sad that Kim Yuna only got a silver medal. And I'm so happy that Hanyu Yuzuru got the gold! Anyway, I'm both sorry and disappointed with myself that I've neglected blogging. The last reason...is, well, my two-week reading slump.
The point of this post is to inform you of books that have been released (since it's the 6th of March already) and will be release this month. Check them out!
Wicked Little Secrets (Prep School Confidential #2) by Kara Taylor
When Anne learns that her boyfriend Brent’s dad is one of the now-powerful Wheatley alumni who rowed crew with Matthew, and that the crew team continues to induct new members with a creepy-sounding ritual called “The Drop,” she knows further investigation could put her relationship with Brent in danger. Determined to discover the truth, she reaches out to Anthony, Isabella’s townie brother, who helps her delve deeper into the secrets in Wheatley’s past. Secrets someone would kill to keep hidden. As the school’s Spring Formal—and its notorious afterparty—approaches, Anne sees the perfect opportunity to do some off-campus digging into the lives of Wheatley’s VIPs in this thrilling, unputdownable read—but if she’s not careful, she’ll be the next student who never comes back.
I've been waiting for this book, finally it's here! I love the first book. I find Anne annoying, but I love it overall. This is like Gossip Girls, with less Gossip but more on mystery and thriller. The kids in this series are rich and super rich. Of course, there will always be someone with, err, financial problems.
Winning what you want may cost you everything you love As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined. Set in a richly imagined new world, The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is a story of deadly games where everything is at stake, and the gamble is whether you will keep your head or lose your heart.
I read so many good reviews about this book. According to the synopsis, it seems typical. But I hope I'm wrong. I hope this book is worthy of they hype it's getting. *crosses fingers*
We weren't always like this. We used to be average New York City high school sophomores. Until our homeroom went for flu shots. We were prepared for some side effects. Maybe a headache. Maybe a sore arm. We definitely didn't expect to get telepathic powers. But suddenly we could hear what everyone was thinking. Our friends. Our parents. Our crushes. Now we all know that Tess is in love with her best friend, Teddy. That Mackenzie cheated on Cooper. That, um, Nurse Carmichael used to be a stripper. Since we've kept our freakish skill a secret, we can sit next to the class brainiac and ace our tests. We can dump our boyfriends right before they dump us. We know what our friends really think of our jeans, our breath, our new bangs. We always know what's coming. Some of us will thrive. Some of us will crack. None of us will ever be the same. So stop obsessing about your ex. We're always listening.
I've read one Sarah Mlynowski book, and I loved it! The plot of this book seems fun and exciting. It's unique. I can't wait to read this...
Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do. Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought. Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for. For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.
I've already read and reviewed this book. I freaking loved, loved it! Contrary to most people's belief, this is unlike Hunger Games. There's no similarity with their plots. You can read my review here: (Review) Panic by Lauren Oliver.
Well, that's all for this month folks! It's not a lot, compared to my February New Releases list. Expect more for the month of April, though.
