Are you wondering what great new YA books come out this week? Me too.
In this new weekly feature, I'll highlight some of the great new YA books that are releasing each week. This week focuses on YA coming out April 10-April 16. Then we can discuss where we stand: buy, borrow or bypass.
Releasing today, Tuesday April 10:
The Calling : Darkness Rising 2 by Kelley Armstrong
The Book of Blood and Shadows by Robin Wasserman
Belles by Jen Calonita
I reviewed Ghost Flower last week -- check that out if you missed it.
I have Thou Shalt Not Road Trip and Book of Blood and Shadows requested at the library.
I really liked Darkness Rising and have even been to Vancouver Island, where the series takes place, so I think I may put The Calling on my "buy" list.
Belles sounds intriguing. My library didn't order it yet, but I'm going to keep an eye out for a copy.
I'm a little confused about this one. It looks like it might have been scheduled to be released back in 2009 under a different name, Wonderwall. Reading the blurb reminded me of an embarrassing moment when I was younger and thought there was a poet named Rambo. Cool! Whoops, no. It was Rimbaud. Awkward!
Okay, but all that aside, Radiant Days could be my kind of book. It sounds a little like Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, with the modern girl and the artist from the past. Could be a buy!
What are your thoughts on these?
