Hallowed - Cynthia Hand
Hallowed is the follow up to earlier this year's amazing novel Unearthly by Cynthia Hand. It doesn't technically come out until January, but I was lucky enough to get it earlier. This series has got to have one the best YA covers I've ever seen (and lots of different versions for different countries). To be honest, that was the reason why I bought Unearthly in the first place and it turned out to be one of my favourite reads of 2011. It's also the only series where I didn't really mind who the protagonist ended up with. That's quite strange for me, but both guys were equally great. I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens in Hallowed, and I'm sure I will love it.
Clockwork Prince - Cassandra Clare
Another follow-up book, this time from the incredible Cassandra Clare (whom I was lucky enough to meet when she was in Sydney earlier this year). I loved everything about Clockwork Angel - I might even prefer it over The Mortal Instruments series. I think it has something to do with the era and setting. London in the 1800s? It's dark, mysterious, romantic...What's not to love? Then there's the stunningly beautiful, brooding, deeply broken Will *sigh* Even though Clockwork Prince focuses largely on Jem, I still can't wait to read and learn more about Will's background. Team Will all the way :)
Vampire Academy: The Ultimate Guide - Michelle Rowen & Richelle Mead
Well, as a self confessed, VA obsessed fan; there was no doubt that I would buy this book the moment it became available. Although it has many things that I already know, the interviews with the AMAZING Richelle Mead, makes it totally worth while. Plus reading it makes me want to break out my copies for the 100th time and reread about my favourite couple: Rose and Dimitri!
We had a pretty amazing week, attending the Black Hand Ball in Sydney last Wednesday to meet Becca Fitzpatrick. It was a really fun night and included getting a Simon and Schuster fun filled goodie bag! So thank you Simon and Schuster for the books that we found in the bags.
Smoulder - Brenna Yovanoff (also known as: The Space Between)
The Future of Us - Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler.
