Books I need!!

Greetings booklovers, school recently started back up again *sobs uncontrollably* so reading and blogging have sadly been put on hold. But I'm back (for now) to tell all of you about some books that are coming out in the next two months.

1.Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Release date: October 22, 2013
One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

OH MY GOODNESS just staring at this cover makes me freak out. The swirly water on the cover, and the

airport at the bottom. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!
 It's also the last book in the amazing Divergent series which means it's the last time we will ever read about Tris, Four, and all the other amazing characters. (wow, thats extremely depressing) I am so excited to see what this book is going to bring even though it will probably scar me/ruin my life. So I guess there is only one last thing to say, BRING ON THE PAIN!


2. House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Release date: October 8, 2013
At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus.

Can you say epic cliffhanger!! Ever since I finished Mark of Athena I've been dying to know what happens to Percy and Annabeth. I'm sure whatever Uncle Rick has in store for them is painful and life-altering, but I'm prepared (not). I'm counting the days until this book comes out and I can't wait to read more about Percy and his demigod friends.


3. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Release date: September 10, 2013
From the author the New York Times bestseller Eleanor & Park
A coming-of-age tale of fan fiction, family and first love. 
Cath is a Simon Snow fan.
Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan . . .
But for Cath, being a fan is her life — and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.
Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.
Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.
Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?
Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?
And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

I love the title of this book, well duh, but the plot looks amazing. I think the cool thing about this book is that the main character is a fellow fangirl. She obsesses over fictional characters and writes fan fiction so I think we would all really relate to her. Also the author, Rainbow Rowell, wrote one of my favorite books, Eleanor and Park, which I reviewed here.

4.Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter

Release date: September 24, 2013
Inspired by the childhood classic Alice in Wonderland, this harrowing and romantic story features teen zombie slayer Alice Bell who has lost so much—family, friends, her home. After a strange new zombie attack, Alice fears she may be losing her mind as well. A terrible darkness blooms inside her, urging her to do wicked things. The whispers of the dead assault her ears and mirrors seem to come frighteningly to life. She’s never needed her team of zombie slayers more—including her boyfriend, Cole—than she does now. But as Cole strangely withdraws and the zombies gain new strength, Ali knows one false step may doom them all.

This is the second book in the White Rabbit Chronicles series, the first being Alice in Zombieland. I LOVED the first book. I mean it has zombies in it... and Alice in Wonderland. What's not to like? I STRONGLY suggest reading the first one if you like zombies or Alice in Wonderland mixed with romance, adventure and mystery.

5.Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan

Release Date: September 24, 2013
free from bonds, but not each other
It’s time to choose sides… On the surface, Sorry-in-the-Vale is a sleepy English town. But Kami Glass knows the truth. Sorry-in-the-Vale is full of magic. In the old days, the Lynburn family ruled with fear, terrifying the people into submission in order to kill for blood and power. Now the Lynburns are back, and Rob Lynburn is gathering sorcerers so that the town can return to the old ways.
But Rob and his followers aren’t the only sorcerers in town. A decision must be made: pay the blood sacrifice, or fight. For Kami, this means more than just choosing between good and evil. With her link to Jared Lynburn severed, she’s now free to love anyone she chooses. But who should that be?

Again, this is the sequel to a book I read a couple months ago. Unspoken was the first book in the series which I reviewed here. So let me just warn you guys that when I finished Unspoken I threw the book at the wall. And then cried like a little baby all night. Knowing Sarah Rees Brennan, Untold will make me curl up into a little ball and whimper like a lost puppy. So if you haven't read Unspoken, get to the nearest bookstore or library and pick up a copy of the book which is probably in the life-ruiner section. Enjoy! I sure did.



So fellow readers, I guess there is only one last thing to do. Lets make a toast...
