Released on: April
Add to: Goodreads

Kate Winters has won immortality. But if she wants a life with Henry in the Underworld, she'll have to fight for it.

Becoming immortal wasn't supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she's as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he's becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.  

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future. Henry's first wife, Persephone. -quoted from Harlequin Teen

    Zoe Marriott, author of Shadows on the Moon, Swan Kingdom, Daughter of the Flames and Frostfire, is going to interview Cassie during her City of Lost Souls UK book tour and she's asking us for questions specific to Jace and Clary (oh, like MMs don't have a few hundered of those)!

    I know that Cassie's tour time is limited this year, so this is a great opportunity. Head on over to Zoe's blog post and ask all the spoilery questions you need answered, MMs. Also, yes, there are already some spoilers in the comments so if you haven't finished CoLS, yet, click over carefully.

    Cover Reveal: The Program by Suzanne Young

    I'm excited to be one of three blogs taken part in the cover reveal for Suzanne Young's upcoming book, The Program! Each blog will be posting a different feature about the book's cover. I'll be featuring the entire jacket layout and you'll want to stop by Novel Novice & The Story Siren to see what they're featuring.

    Check out this awesome cover:

    About the book:

    THE PROGRAM by Suzanne Young—SimonPulse (Simon & Schuster) April 2nd, 2013

    SLOANE KNOWS BETTER THAN TO CRY IN FRONT OF ANYONE. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.

    Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in.

    What others are saying about The Program:

    "Heartbreaking and chilling, THE PROGRAM will leave you breathless." - Kimberly Derting, author of THE BODY FINDER series 

    "Suspenseful and touching, THE PROGRAM feels frighteningly real." -Jay Asher, author of THIRTEEN REASONS WHY.

    "An alternate reality that's as gritty and disturbing as any dystopian world, THE PROGRAM is timely and tragic, with a romance that will take your breath away." -Bethany Griffin, author of MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH

    "Anyone searching for a fast-paced read with equal parts romance and action should get with THE PROGRAM." -Cat Patrick, author of FORGOTTEN

    About the Author:

    Suzanne Young currently lives in Tempe, Arizona, where she teaches high school English. When not writing obsessively, Suzanne can be found searching her own tragic memories for inspiration. She is the author of several books for teens, including THE PROGRAM, A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL, and A WANT SO WICKED. Learn more at

    Waiting on Wednesday: Tokyo Heist by Diana Renn

    Published by: Viking/Penguin Teen
    To Be Released on: June 14th, 2012
    Pre-Order from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

    Sixteen-year-old Violet loves reading manga and wearing scarves made from kimono fabric, so she’s thrilled that her father’s new painting commission means a summer trip to Japan. But what starts as an exotic vacation quickly turns into a dangerous treasure hunt. 

    Her father’s newest clients, the Yamada family, are the victims of a high-profile art robbery: van Gogh sketches have been stolen from their home, and, until they can produce the corresponding painting, everyone's lives are in danger -- including Violet's and her father's. 

    Violet’s search for the missing van Gogh takes her from the Seattle Art Museum, to the yakuza-infested streets of Tokyo, to a secluded inn in Kyoto. As the mystery thickens, Violet’s not sure whom she can trust. But she knows one thing: she has to solve the mystery -- before it’s too late - quoted from Goodreads

    I am really looking forward to this book's release! I have an ARC of it that I'm starting this week, and when it's closer to the release date I'll be posting my review and an author interview. I definitely recommend adding this one to your TBR lists! From all the buzz I've been hearing about it, I think it's one YA fans are really going to enjoy.
