September 2013

This is something I will be very likely be doing monthly. This is basically housekeeping... I just like to compile a list of novels that are out each month and debate if I want to buy them or not, or should I get them from the library or beg borrow and steal for them... yeah you get the idea. But I thought you guys might like to see the list :) So basically each Monthly Wish List is books released this month that I am DYING/would really like to read. This list may include other stuff, and I'll talk about books I liked this month and maybe other stuff I liked :) 

*NOTE: synopses(the plural of synopsis, I looked it up because I started typing synopsises... heh) may be spoiler-y if you have not read previous books in that series. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Author: Sherry Thomas
Release Date: September 17th
Synopsis (as found on Goodreads):

It all began with a ruined elixir and an accidental bolt of lightning…

Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she's being told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the greatest mage tyrant the world has ever known. A suicide task for anyone let alone a sixteen-year-old girl with no training, facing a prophecy that foretells a fiery clash to the death.

Prince Titus of Elberon has sworn to protect Iolanthe at all costs but he's also a powerful mage committed to obliterating the Bane to avenge the death of his family—even if he must sacrifice both Iolanthe and himself to achieve his goal.

But Titus makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the Bane closing in, he must choose between his mission and her life.

*Another Side Note from Carmen: (you might be seeing a lot of these.. heh.)THE TRAILER JUST SOLD IT TO ME. I REALLY WANT TO READ THIS.

Thornhill (Hemlock, #2)
Book: Thornhill (Book #2 in the Hemlock series/trilogy)
Author: Kathleen Peacock
Released Date: September 10th (MY B-DAY :O)
Synopsis (as found on Goodreads):

Mac can’t lose another friend. Even if he doesn’t want to be found.

The ripple effect caused by Mac’s best friend Amy’s murder has driven Mac’s new love, Kyle, to leave Hemlock and disappear from her life forever. But Mac knows that Kyle plans to enroll in a rehabilitation camp, where he can live with other werewolves. She refuses to accept his decision, especially since the camps are rumored to be tortuous. So she sets out in search of Kyle with a barely sober Jason—and Amy’s all-seeing ghost—in tow.

Clues lead Mac to find Kyle in a werewolf den in Colorado—but their reunion is cut short by a Tracker raid. Now Mac and Kyle are trapped inside the electric fences of Thornhill, a camp for young werewolves. As she devises an escape plan, Mac uncovers dangerous secrets buried within the walls of Thornhill—and realizes that the risk to the people she loves is greater than ever before.

Antigoddess (Goddess War, #1)Book: Antigoddess (Book #1 in the Goddess War series)
Author: Kendare Blake
Released Date: September 10th (MY B-DAY AGAIN :O)
Synopsis (as found on Goodreads):

Old Gods never die…

Or so Athena thought. But then the feathers started sprouting beneath her skin, invading her lungs like a strange cancer, and Hermes showed up with a fever eating away his flesh. So much for living a quiet eternity in perpetual health.

Desperately seeking the cause of their slow, miserable deaths, Athena and Hermes travel the world, gathering allies and discovering enemies both new and old. Their search leads them to Cassandra—an ordinary girl who was once an extraordinary prophetess, protected and loved by a god. 

These days, Cassandra doesn’t involve herself in the business of gods—in fact, she doesn’t even know they exist. But she could be the key in a war that is only just beginning. 

Because Hera, the queen of the gods, has aligned herself with other of the ancient Olympians, who are killing off rivals in an attempt to prolong their own lives. But these anti-gods have become corrupted in their desperation to survive, horrific caricatures of their former glory. Athena will need every advantage she can get, because immortals don’t just flicker out. 

Every one of them dies in their own way. Some choke on feathers. Others become monsters. All of them rage against their last breath.

The Goddess War is about to begin.

ScorchedBook: Scorched
Author: Mari Mancusi
Released Date: September 3rd
Synopsis (as found on Goodreads):

Don’t leave me here... It starts with a whisper. At first Trinity thinks she’s going crazy. It wouldn’t be a big surprise—her grandpa firmly believes there’s a genuine dragon egg in their dusty little West Texas town. But this voice is real, and it’s begging for her protection. Even if no one else can hear it...

He’s come from a future scorched by dragonfire. His mission: Find the girl. Destroy the egg. Save the world.

He’s everything his twin brother Connor hates: cocky, undisciplined, and obsessed with saving dragons. 

Trinity has no idea which brother to believe. All she has to go by is the voice in her head—a dragon that won’t be tamed.
