Teaser Tuesday: What I can't wait to get my hands on now

So, I was surfing Amazon yesterday looking for new releases yesterday and I found two new books coming out I didn't know about and I just had to tell somebody!!!

The first title is Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins. That's right! It is the finale in the story arc of Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door!!!

Book Description (From Amazon):
Release Date: May 7, 2013
Falling in love in the world’s most romantic city is easy for hopeless dreamer Isla and introspective artist Josh. But as they begin their senior year at the School of America in Paris, Isla and Josh are quickly forced to deal with the heartbreaking reality that happily-ever-afters aren’t always forever.

Their romantic journey is skillfully intertwined with those of beloved couples Anna and Étienne and Lola and Cricket, whose paths are destined to collide in a sweeping finale certain to please fans old and new.

All the characters I came to love are going to be there so I just can't wait to get my hands on it!!!

Sorry, no picture available yet.

The second book was an even bigger surprise: Unbroken: A Ruined Novel by Paula Morris.

Ruined is a haunting story set in New Orleans. It came out in 2009. So, I was shocked to find out that there was a sequel almost four years later!!! I may have squeed and can't wait to get my hands on this one either!!!

Book Description (From Amazon):
Publication Date: February 1, 2013
Welcome back to New Orleans.
Where the streets swirl with jazz and beauty.
Where the houses breathe with ghosts.

A year ago, Rebecca Brown escaped death in a New Orleans cemetery. Now she has returned to this haunting city. She is looking forward to seeing Anton Grey, the boy who may or may not have her heart.

But she also meets a ghost: a troubled boy who insists only she can help him. Soon Rebecca finds herself embroiled in another murder mystery from more than a century ago. But as she tries to right wrongs, she finds more questions than answers: Is she putting her friends, and herself, in danger? Can she trust this new ghost? And has she stumbled into something much bigger and more serious than she understands?

These two are going to be at the top of my pile when they do come in.  Heck, they may not even make it to my pile.  I might have to read them immediately!!!



  1. Awesome finds! Especially love the sound of Unbroken!

  2. I think you might like Ruined, although it has somewhat of a gothic feel, but it's a suspenseful, ghost story set in New Orleans. It's been a while since I read it, as the first book came out in 2009, but I rather enjoyed it. I kept looking for another book, but one never came. I think I might have to flip back through book one before Unbroken is released though. The details are fuzzy now.
