Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)
Title: Seige and Storm (Grisha #2)
Author: Leigh Bardugo
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Expected publication date: June 4th 2013
Overview
Darkness never dies.

Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land, all while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. But she can't outrun her past or her destiny for long.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling's game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her--or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm

It is the (not so final) cover of Seige and Storm! It looks really amazing and this isn't even the final cover! The colors are really nice and blend well together. They suit the story of the book and gives it this kind of ancient and mystical feeling ( Not so sure but that's how I feel).  After reading the overview, I was stunned, speechless, and couldn't control my excitement. The biggest question for me is...who will Alina end up with? Part of me begs her to go with Mal but the other longs for someone dark and mysterious like the Darkling. Ooooooh..... can't wait..... the enticipation is killing me. And I still have half a year to wait....

Obsidian (Lux #1)

Title: Obsidian (Lux #1)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Overview

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don't kill him first, that is.

Review:
Wow. Just wow. This book was totally unexpected cause I didn't figure it was this good. I have never read a book which had to with aliens and once I found out it was about aliens, I started to question whether or not I should read this book. (As you can see, I don't really  have a thing for aliens). However, this book changed my perspective of aliens, making them actually seem hot (Weird, I know right!). Obsidian is a wondeful book with humour and thrills which are sure to please you. The connection between Daemon and Katy feels strong even though they pretty much argue all the time and refuse to admit that they like each other. Although much of this book seems to revolve around their feelings and Daemon's hidden secrets, it doesn't overtake the plot and you have just enough of everything to satisfy your hunger. I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait to get my hands on the next.

The Witch of Duva




Title: The witch of Duva (A short story from the Grisha trilogy)
Author: Leigh Bardugo

Overview
There was a time when the woods near Duva ate girls…or so the story goes. But it’s just possible that the danger may be a little bit closer to home. This story is a companion folk tale to Leigh Bardugo’s debut novel, Shadow and Bone.
An enticing dark, fairy tale with an unexpected twist. The Witch of Duva is a short story which takes place in the same world as the book Shadow and Bone and stars a girl by the name of Nadya. There is much tension after the death of her mother and the frequent disappearances of the girls in the village. This short story gives a greater depth into the book Shadow and Bone but does not include any of the characters from the book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves fairy tales and unforeseen endings.

Shatter Me

Title: Shatter Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication date: 10/2/2012
Overview

I have a curse.

I have a gift.

I'm a monster.
I'm more than human.

My touch is lethal.
My touch is power.

I am their weapon.I will fight back.

No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own. After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.
In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a riveting dystopian world, a thrilling superhero story, and an unforgettable heroine.
Review:
This book was absolutely AMAZING!!! The entire story just flowed perfectly and I just couldn't stop myself from reading on. The book starts off with Juliette in a prison cell, explaining that she hasn't touched anyone within 264 days. Next, a guy by the name of Adam is placed in her cell. From then on, events start to lead up quickly as Juliette discovers that The Reestablishment wants to use her and that Adam is actually a soldier and was part of their plan. However, even though Juliette feels sort of betrayed by Adam, her feelings start to deepen and they soon discover that Adam is the only one who can touch her without being hurt.
As the next half of the book leads on , they plan their escape. (I'm not giving away much of this part but, Juliette finds out that this other guy can also touch her. But she doesn't tell anyone!). This is when things really start to speed up. The ending was unexpected, for me, and apart from the fact that some parts of the book seemed repetitive, it was definitely worth the read!
