Okay so I didn’t promise to stay away from Netgalley or Edelweiss, but I said I would try…lol. It just didn’t work.

So here is what I picked up from Netgalley:

DangerousDangerous by Shannon Hale (not read this author but heard a lot about her.) Release date March 4th according to Netgalley but I have seen several different pub dates so I am not exactly sure.

Maisie Danger Brown just wanted to get away from home for a bit, see something new. She never intended to fall in love. And she never imagined stumbling into a frightening plot that kills her friends and just might kill her, too. A plot that is already changing life on Earth as we know it. There’s no going back. She is the only thing standing between danger and annihilation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

crowsnestOne Flew Over the Crow’s Nest by Ken Casper (Never heard of this author) It’s already been released and came out on Sept. 18th.

Someone’s murdered Brayton Spites!
Nobody’s sorry he’s dead-with one exception. A ruthless, unscrupulous businessman, notorious womanizer, and heartless father, he turned his back on his only legitimate son after the boy’s grandfather abused him. So when Spites’s body is found in a dark alley in Coyote Springs, the question is not who killed him, but what took so long?
Jason Crow, rancher, vintner, and double amputee, is invited to help find his biological father’s murderer. He has no idea just how personal the quest is about to become. The list of suspects includes his half-brothers, Harden Spites and Kelvin Dodge, as well as Brayton’s alcoholic widow, Dolly Dodge. Then there’s Neldona Chance, a prostitute with a heart of gold, who shared a complex relationship with Brayton, Harden, and Kelvin.
Bodies pile up. Family tensions rise. Tempers reach the breaking point when the sheriff comes to arrest Jason’s grieving and emotionally fragile mother for the murder of the profligate man she never stopped loving.
ONE FLEW OVER THE CROW’S NEST is the third in Ken Casper’s West Texas Mystery Series, giving readers still another glimpse into the world of one of mystery’s most intriguing and unique crime solvers.

(sounds interesting and I hope not having read the first two I won’t be confused. I need to pay more attention to if they are sequels or not!)
Here is what I got from Edelweiss:

feralchildThe Feral Child by Che Golden (never heard of this author either) Release date is June 3rd, 2o14.

Her parents dead, Maddy is sick of living in Ireland, sick of Blarney and sick of her cousin Danny, one of the nastiest people you could meet this side of an Asbo. Mad as hell one evening, she crawls inside the grounds of the castle, the one place she has always been forbidden to go. Once inside, she is chased by a strange feral boy, who she suspects is one of the faerie: cruel, fantastical people who live among humans and exchange local children for their own.

When the boy returns to steal her neighbour Stephen into his world, Maddy and her cousins set off on a terrifying journey into a magical wilderness, determined to bring him back home. To do so, they must face an evil as old as the earth itself.

 

 

 

 

whitespaceWhite Space: Book one of the Dark Passages by Isla J. Bick (I actually have her Ashes Trilogy but I haven’t read it yet..lol) Release date is Feb. 11th, 2014.

From Ilsa J. Bick-the critically acclaimed author of The Ashes Trilogy-comes the first title in a two-book, young adult series about blurred reality in the tradition of Memento and Inception, where characters in a story find that a deadly and horrifying world exists in the space between the written lines.

A new novel from Ilsa J. Bick, the critically acclaimed author of The Ashes trilogy, combines elements of thriller, horror, and speculative fiction into a heart-racing story that will leave readers eager to turn the page.

(They sure don’t want you to know much about this book..has me curious.)

 

 

 

TakingThe Taking by Kimberly Derting (love this author!! So I was so excited to see a new series by her) Release date is April 29th, 2014.

A flash of white light . . . and then . . . nothing.

When sixteen-year-old Kyra Agnew wakes up behind a Dumpster at the Gas ’n’ Sip, she has no memory of how she got there. With a terrible headache and a major case of déjà vu, she heads home only to discover that five years have passed . . . yet she hasn’t aged a day.

Everything else about Kyra’s old life is different. Her parents are divorced, her boyfriend, Austin, is in college and dating her best friend, and her dad has changed from an uptight neat-freak to a drunken conspiracy theorist who blames her five-year disappearance on little green men.

Confused and lost, Kyra isn’t sure how to move forward unless she uncovers the truth. With Austin gone, she turns to Tyler, Austin’s annoying kid brother, who is now seventeen and who she has a sudden undeniable attraction to. As Tyler and Kyra retrace her steps from the fateful night of her disappearance, they discover strange phenomena that no one can explain, and they begin to wonder if Kyra’s father is not as crazy as he seems. There are others like her who have been taken . . . and returned. Kyra races to find an explanation and reclaim the life she once had, but what if the life she wants back is not her own?

What are you stacking your shelves with or in my case your ereader!

    The Taking sounds pretty awesome! I love those kind of mysterious, amnesia-ish books. 😉 Great haul! Isn’t it hard to stay away from NetGalley??! I’m trying to as well for a while (at least this month), while I catch up. *sigh* It’s kind of impossible! Especially since I’m seeing all these cool books this week! 😉 Hehe. Anyway, have fun with those delicious looking books!

      I love the Body Finder series too and realized I am behind on that series and need to catch up!! Thanks for stopping by!

      Yeah, it sounds really good and I like Kimberly Derting too. I am horrible at keeping up with series and have realized I am behind on her series..I think at the first of the year I am making some bookish resolutions and one of them is to keep a list of books I have read that are part of a series so I don’t forget. 🙂

    • ladystorm

      Yeah I know it’s like they are being real secretive about White Space, I just hope I like it! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

    Great looking books there! I’m really curious about Dangerous; I haven’t read any of Shannon Hale’s books, either, but I’ve heard so many awesome things about Austenland. Hope you enjoy reading it, and your other books, too! Thanks for stopping by!

    • ladystorm

      Me too, the ones I really want to read seems like the ones I have to wait a little bit before reading them as they don’t come out till next year..lol. Though I guess I could read it now and save my review in a doc..lol.
