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 🙂

Title: Snakeroot (Nightshade Legacy #1)

Author: Andrea Cremer

Expected publication: December 10th 2013 by Philomel

Type: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Werewolfs

Goodreads: Fans asked for it, and now they’ve got it! Andrea Cremer is continuing the story she began in in her internationally bestselling trilogy: Nightshade, Wolfsbane and Bloodrose. In this new installment, Bosque Mar haunts the dreams of both Adne and Logan, trying to escape for the Nether, where Calla, Shay and the other Guardians trapped him in the final battle in the War of All Against All. Will he turn Adne to the dark side? Will Logan reclaim his birthright? And will darkness take over our world? In a novel filled with magic, romance and breakneck action, master storytelling Andrea Cremer’s newest installment will not disappoint!

BorderThe cover looks more creepy compared to the other covers in the saga. and i love the fast it’s more edy and plan. The cover is a simply awesome. I will be honest i don’t really remember the characters that well. There never stood out to me in the series but i really love the nightshade saga so i have to give this book a shot, and i’m really looking forward to read it. Tho i do have to mention this book without Ren is gonna be real depressing. I don’t know about you but i was completely heartbroken over Ren.(Spoiler Alert) I’m not over his death at all and probably never be. That being said i am still excited to read this. Who else is looking forward to this book? Just the title itself “Snakeroot” Sounds creepy. I am really interested to see how the book will take off after the ending of the last book. my gut is telling me it’s gonna be emotional and epic.

Overall:
