Ally Carter’s upcoming book is coming SOON!! AHH!! SO excited for it! It’s the very last Gallagher Girls book, so even though I’m happy to read it, I’ll still end up being sad once it’s over. But while we’re waiting for United We Spy to release, here’s Chapter 1 and 2 on Ally’s blog! And here’s the book trailer:

Jessica Sorensen has told us the release date for the sequel for Breaking Nova is February 4th, 2014! Super excited for it, since I really enjoyed Breaking Nova (read my review here).

And OMG! OMG!! Ilona Andrews has a new snippet for Magic Breaks (Kate Daniels #7)!

Sooner or later you’ll break,” he said.

“Keep hoping.”

“You’re a survivor. Voron put you on the edge of that cliff again and again until he conditioned you to claw onto life. You’ll do whatever you have to do to survive. I’m your only chance of getting out. At first you’ll balk, but with every passing hour my offer will look better and better. You’ll convince yourself that dying will accomplish nothing and you should at least go out with a bang. You’ll tell yourself that you’re accepting my offer just so you could stick that [redacted] sword into my chest and feel it cut through my heart. Even if you die afterward, the fact that I’ll stop breathing makes your death mean something. So you’ll call me. And you’ll try to kill me. Except you’ve been three days without food and that body…” He tilted his head. “That body burns through calories like fire goes through gasoline. You’re running out of reserves. I can put you down with one hit.”

“That’s a cute story.”

He tapped his naked chest over his heart. “This is the spot. Give it a shot, Kate. Let’s see what happens.”

You can read all the snippets so far here.

AND there’s a new snippet for City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare! (You can read more stuff on her tumblr.)

a rune, hovering like an angel: a shape like two wings joined by a single bar

What does it mean?? I’m honestly excited for the book, but I have no idea where Cassie is going with the series or how she’s going to end it.

The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.

Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.

Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.

Captivated. Lured. Loved.

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence…and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson is FREE too!

Nothing ever happens in Norway. But at least Ellie knows what to expect when she visits her grandmother: a tranquil fishing village and long, slow summer days. And maybe she’ll finally get out from under the shadow of her way-too-perfect big brother, Graham, while she’s there.

What Ellie doesn’t anticipate is Graham’s infuriating best friend, Tuck, tagging along for the trip. Nor did she imagine boys going missing amid rumors of impossible kidnappings. Least of all does she expect something powerful and ancient to awaken in her and that strange whispers would urge Ellie to claim her place among mythological warriors. Instead of peace and quiet, there’s suddenly a lot for a girl from L.A. to handle on a summer sojourn in Norway! And when Graham vanishes, it’s up to Ellie—and the ever-sarcastic, if undeniably alluring Tuck—to uncover the truth about all the disappearances and thwart the nefarious plan behind them.

Deadly legends, hidden identities, and tentative romance swirl together in one girl’s unexpectedly-epic coming of age.
