BOOKS ON MY WISHLIST FOR 2014!




Title: Betting Blind
Series: Betting Blind, #1
Author: Stephanie Guerra
Expected Publication Date: November 4, 2014
Publisher: Brilliance Audio

SUMMARY

Some risks are worth taking.?

The cards are stacking up against Gabriel James: first there's Phil, the guy paying the bills for Gabe's mom (but not leaving his wife). Then there's Gabe's new school, filled with kids competing for the Ivies, Silicon Valley, and Wall Street, while Gabe's just trying to swing enough Cs to graduate.

Gabe's luck seems ready to change when he meets Irina Petrova: a hot violinist who is home-schooled by her strict Russian parents. When Gabe gets her number, he impresses the top guys at his school. When he becomes the drug connection for parties, his reputation is solidified. How else is he going to afford hanging with his new crew and impressing Irina? Anyway, it's not really dealing if you’re just hooking up friends, right?

Gabe's never been loyal to a girl before, but he finds himself falling for Irina hard. As the stakes are raised, Gabe will have to decide how high he's willing to bet on school, on friends, on Irina, but most of all, on himself. Mature content, ages 14 and up.









Title: TimeBomb
Series: Timebomb Trilogy, #1
Author: Scott K. Andrews
Expected Publication Date: October 9, 2014
Publisher: Hodder & Sloughton

SUMMARY

New York City, 2141: Yojana Patel throws herself off a skyscraper, but never hits the ground.

Cornwall, 1640: gentle young Dora Predennick, newly come to Sweetclover Hall to work, discovers a badly-burnt woman at the bottom of a flight of stairs. When she reaches out to comfort the dying woman, she's knocked unconscious, only to wake, centuries later, in empty laboratory room.

On a rainy night in present-day Cornwall, seventeen-year-old Kaz Cecka sneaks into the long-abandoned Sweetclover Hall, determined to secure a dry place to sleep. Instead he finds a frightened housemaid who believes Charles I is king and an angry girl who claims to come from the future.

Thrust into the centre of an adventure that spans millennia, Dora, Kaz and Jana must learn to harness powers they barely understand to escape not only villainous Lord Sweetclover but the forces of a fanatical army... all the while staying one step ahead of a mysterious woman known only as Quil.








Title: The Graham Cracker Plot
Author: Shelley Tougas
Expected Publication Date: September 2, 2014
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press

SUMMARY

No one believes her, but Daisy Bauer knows her dad has been wrongfully imprisoned and that it's up to her to break him out of jail (aka Club Fed). She has a plan that she's calling the Graham Cracker Plot because it was all Graham's idea. She just needs a miniature horse, a getaway truck, and a penny from 1919—the idea coin. 

This funny, nail-biter of a novel is about friendship and admitting you're wrong. Debut novelist Shelley Tougas balances humor and warmth against themes of family, broken trust, and unconditional love against all odds.





  


Title: The Jewel
Series: The Lone City, #1
Author: Amy Ewing
Expected Publication Date: September 4, 2014
Publisher: Walker Books Ltd

SUMMARY

A shocking and compelling new YA series from debut author, Amy Ewing; The Handmaid's Tale meets The Other Boleyn Girl in a world where beauty and brutality collide.

Violet Lasting is no longer a human being. Tomorrow she becomes Lot 197, auctioned to the highest royal bidder in the Jewel of the Lone City. Tomorrow she becomes the Surrogate of the House of the Lake, her sole purpose to produce a healthy heir for the Duchess. Imprisoned in the opulent cage of the palace, Violet learns the brutal ways of the Jewel, where the royal women compete to secure their bloodline and the surrogates are treated as disposable commodities. 

Destined to carry the child of a woman she despises, Violet enters a living death of captivity – until she sets eyes on Ash Lockwood, the royal Companion. Compelled towards each other by a reckless, clandestine passion, Violet and Ash dance like puppets in a deadly game of court politics, until they become each other’s jeopardy – and salvation.
