Before we get to WoW, i wanted to let everyone know that YAreview.com is open. so save it and visit! let everyone know. With a little warning the site might seem a little out of place. I am moving things and adding to the site and so and so fourth with the help of my mother. I will be making a new star chart for YA Review and all that fun stuff on my handy Gimp program. I am hoping to making everything better and cooler.

Now here is my WoW of the week. Enjoy.

Title: Where The Rock Splits the Sky
Author: Philip Webb
Expected publication: March 25th 2014 by Chicken House
Type: Science Fiction, Dystopia

Goodreads: The moon has been split, and the Visitors have Earth in their alien grip. But the captive planet? That’s not her problem. Megan just wants to track down her missing dad…
The world stopped turning long before Megan was born. Ever since the Visitors split the moon and stilled the Earth, permanent sunset is all anyone has known. But now, riding her trusty steed Cisco, joined by her posse, Kelly and Luis, Megan is on the run from her Texas hometown, journeying across the vast, dystopic American West to hunt down her father. To find him, she must face the Zone, a notorious landscape where the laws of nature do not apply. The desert can play deadly tricks on the mind, and the quest will push Megan past her limits. But to solve the mystery of not just her missing father but of the paralyzed planet itself, she must survive it–and an alien showdown.

Thoughts: I came across this book by random and just stopped and read the summery and i just had to know more about it. It sounds so different to the books i have read but still has those hints of the things i like in books. This book screams ” READ ME “. I love the fact it’s not some stupid love story and the fact it is just gonna be epic. I am HUGE, I repeat HUGE into Dystopian and Science Fiction. It’s in my blood. The book just sounds amazing and just looking at the cover you know it’s gonna be awesome and the fact there is ALIENS! yeah you heard me. The whole concept of the story is just a must read.

Title: Panic
Author: Lauren Oliver
Expected publication: March 4th 2014 by HarperCollins
Type: Contemporary, Science Fiction

Goodreads: 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.

Thoughts: I want to just point out how freaking amazing Lauren Oliver is. Her Delirium Series is one of my favorites. I can’t wait to open this book and explore this world. I have high hopes for this book to come out and i really hope it is as good as her Delirium series. I am nervous for it because, as much as i like the Delirium series. I really hope it is different and unique, and shine in it own way. I am gonna keep my fingers crossed. It comes out in 6 days! I will be sitting here waiting for it to come out.

Title: Nil
Author: Lynne Matson
Expected publication:  March 4th 2014 by Henry Holt
Type: Science Fiction, Dystopia,

 

Goodreads: On the mysterious island of Nil, the rules are set. You have one year. Exactly 365 days–to escape, or you die.

Seventeen-year-old Charley doesn’t know the rules. She doesn’t even know where she is. The last thing she remembers is blacking out, and when she wakes up, she’s lying naked in an empty rock field.

Lost and alone, Charley finds no sign of other people until she meets Thad, the gorgeous leader of a clan of teenage refugees. Soon Charley learns that leaving the island is harder than she thought . . . and so is falling in love. With Thad’s time running out, Charley realizes that to save their future, Charley must first save him. And on an island rife with dangers, their greatest threat is time.

Thoughts: I seen this book on Netgalley and the first thoughts i had was The Hunger Games mix with the TV show Lost. Now i want to point out that i am huge fan of both, and i am very curious how this book will go. The summery of the story seems really interesting and exciting. I can’t wait to read this one. The cover makes the books seem very mysterious ( Yes i am that person who judges the cover ). I will be getting this book A.S.A.P. This one also comes out in 6 days so i might just be getting it when i get Panic.

Type: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Dystopian

Goodreads: Following the cliffhanger ending of Phoenix, Natalie finds herself separated from Ash and unexpectedly reunited with her parents, including the father she thought was dead. But she can only think of Ash. She hasn’t heard a word of him since she and Elijah were brought to the underground headquarters of the Sentry Rebellion. But she vows to find him.

Ash, meanwhile is back in Black City; it’s the perfect place to hide from the Sentry government. But not for long. He won’t give up on Natalie or bringing an end to the terrible reign of Purian Rose.

A pulse-racing end to an exciting series.

Thoughts: One of the things i love about this series is the covers, Specially this one. The cover is just so beautiful. I love how she doesn’t have someone face on a cover or somethings totally random, but the fact that the cover is pretty spot on with what the story is heading towards. I love the character in the book. I love the fact she took a different route in Dystopian books with a touch of supernatural. I can’t wait to read this book. I honestly don;t know how i am gonna sit and wait for this book to come out because it’s gonna take freaking forever.  All my friends that have read this series isn’t as much of a fan as i am. But i don’t care i will love this series over and over again.  Besides how can someone say no to Ash? like he is the coolest character in the whole freaking book series.

So overall can’t wait!

Type: Dystopian

Goodreads: Saba is ready to seize her destiny and defeat DeMalo and the Tonton…until she meets him and he confounds all her expectations with his seductive vision of a healed earth, a New Eden. DeMalo wants Saba to join him, in life and work, to create and build a healthy, stable, sustainable world…for the chosen few. The few who can pay.

Jack’s choice is clear: to fight DeMalo and try to stop New Eden. Still uncertain, her connection with DeMalo a secret, Saba commits herself to the fight. Joined by her brother, Lugh, anxious for the land in New Eden, Saba leads an inexperienced guerilla band against the powerfully charismatic DeMalo, in command of his settlers and the Tonton militia. What chance do they have? Saba must act. And be willing to pay the price

Thoughts: Another series i love( and i do have many ). I really can’t wait to read this one! i have been biting my nails ever since i have read the 2nd book. I am a little disappointed in the cover. i never really been a fan of dark green shade. But i do really love the fact that Saba and Jack are both on the cover( I ship them ). The way the book series is written has always caught an interest in me. Sometime i like to read the book aloud just because it fun. I haven’t pre-order this book yet but i do plan on it soon.

Title: Alienated ( Alienated #1 )
Author: Melissa Landers
Expected publication: February 4th 2014 by Disney Hyperion
Type: Science Fiction

Goodreads: Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.

Thoughts: So far every Disney/Hyperion book that i have read has be awesome. This book seems no different. The book sounds different then the books that have been coming out lately but still have the things i love. I am all for Science Fiction and a story packed with adventures….and of course a side of romance. I’m a girl, i can’t help but crave some romance. One thing is i don’t like is the cover. It’s just to much going on for me. I’m sure once i read the book i will connect more to it.

Cara already sounds like a character i can relate to and easily fall love with. I am really excited to learn more about Cara and Aelyx ( maybe ship worthy? ). I can’t wait to dig in this one and just get zoned in it. I really hope it’s good. What do you guys think?

Title: Defy ( Defy #1 )
Author: Sara B. Larson
Expected publication: January 7th 2014 by Scholastic Press
Type: Fantasy

Goodreads: A lush and gorgeously written debut, packed with action, intrigue, and heart-racing romance.

Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy and serve in the king’s army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince’s guard. But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can’t prevent him from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and deep into enemy territory.

The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince, the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom she’s sworn to protect?

Thoughts: One i am all for women kicking ass! and second i love Fantasy. The story just really seems down my ally and come on lets face it that summery just looks like it’s gonna be one freaking epic story. I can already tell i am gonna like this book a lot. It makes me think of what if. What if i was disguised as a men and fight in a army? and what if  people found out? Honesty i wouldn’t know what i would do but freak out..because well i would be far from a kick ass and get myself killed. The story kind of reminds of Disney’s Mulan and i just love that movie. I think the cover of the book is perfectly simple. I am all for less is more. Overall i can’t freaking wait for this book and i hope it is as good as it sounds. Keeping my fingers crossed that it is fan-girl worthy. What do you guys think? post up your WoW 🙂
