Most Anticipated (43)

Rogue (Croak, #3)

This week my Most Anticipated Release of the Week is Rogue. I can't believe that I'm finally going to be able to find out what happens with Lex and the rest of her gang of reapers. I fell in love with this series after reading the first book, Croak. It was hilarious and so different from other books that I couldn't help but be sucked into the world Gina Damico created. Now, I'm sad to say that Rogue is the final book in this amazing trilogy and I'm going to have to let go of these characters and move on. Luckily I still have this final book to look forward to. Plus if I get too sad I can always re-read!

Lex is a teenage Grim Reaper with the power to Damn souls, and it’s getting out of control. She’s a fugitive, on the run from the maniacal new mayor of Croak and the townspeople who want to see her pay the price for her misdeeds. Uncle Mort rounds up the Junior Grims to flee Croak once again, but this time they’re joined by Grotton, the most powerful Grim of all time. Their new mission is clear: Fix his mistakes, or the Afterlife will cease to exist, along with all the souls in it. 

The gang heads for Necropolis, the labyrinth-like capital city of the Grimsphere. There, they discover that the Grimsphere needs a reboot. To do that, the portals to the Afterlife must be destroyed…but even that may not be enough to fix the damage. Things go from bad to worse, and when at last the fate of the Afterlife and all the souls of the Damned hang in the balance, it falls to Lex and her friends to make one final, impossible choice.(Goodreads)
Rogue (Croak #3), Gina Damico. Expected Publication: September 10, 2013; Graphia. Paperback 336 pgs.

Most Anticipated (42)

Breaking Nova (Nova, #1)

This week My Most Anticipated Release of the Week is...Breaking Nova. I have become a huge fan of Jessica Sorensen and I can't wait to read her latest release. This one seems like it's going to be an emotional read and I'm dying to find out all about Nova and Quinton.  

Nova Reed used to have dreams-of becoming a famous drummer, of marrying her true love. But all of that was taken away in an instant. Now she's getting by as best she can, though sometimes that means doing things the old Nova would never do. Things that are slowly eating away at her spirit. Every day blends into the next . . . until she meets Quinton Carter. His intense, honey brown eyes instantly draw her in, and he looks just about as broken as she feels inside.

Quinton once got a second chance at life-but he doesn't want it. The tattoos on his chest are a constant reminder of what he's done, what he's lost. He's sworn to never allow happiness into his life . . . but then beautiful, sweet Nova makes him smile. He knows he's too damaged to get close to her, yet she's the only one who can make him feel alive again. Quinton will have to decide: does he deserve to start over? Or should he pay for his past forever?(Goodreads)

Breaking Nova (Nova #1), Jessica Sorensen. Expected Publication: September 3, 2013; Forever.
