New Releases | The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, #2)

26874946

Thor’s hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon–the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn’t just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can’t retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer’s return is the gods’ worst enemy, Loki–and the price he wants is very high.


Expected publication: October 4th, 2016 by Disney Hyperion Books

I haven’t read book 1 yet, but I intend to because I love mythology and the Percy Jackson series.

New Releases | Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken (#2, Passenger)

I’ve been orphaned by my time.


Very vague and ominous description. Since this won’t be released until January 3, 2017, you have time to read book one and wait for a more detailed description. I haven’t read Passenger yet but it’s on my TBR, so I’ll be ready for book two before the year is out. This title is available for pre-order so don’t forget to do just that.

New Releases | RoseBlood by A. G. Howard

RoseBlood is a Phantom of the Opera–inspired retelling in which Rune’s biggest talent—her voice—is also her biggest curse.

Rune, whose voice has been compared to that of an angel, has a mysterious affliction linked to her talent that leaves her sick and drained at the end of every performance. Convinced creative direction will cure her, her mother ships her off to a French boarding school for the arts, rumored to have a haunted past.
 
Shortly after arriving at RoseBlood conservatory, Rune starts to believe something otherworldly is indeed afoot. The mystery boy she’s seen frequenting the graveyard beside the opera house doesn’t have any classes at the school, and vanishes almost as quickly as he appears. When Rune begins to develop a secret friendship with the elusive Thorn, who dresses in clothing straight out of the 19th century, she realizes that in his presence she feels cured. Thorn may be falling for Rune, but the phantom haunting RoseBlood wants her for a very specific and dangerous purpose. As their love continues to grow, Thorn is faced with an impossible choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or save her and face the wrath of the phantom, the only father he’s ever known.


A. G. Howard is also the author of Splintered, which is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, so retelling’s are kind of her thing. This title will be released on January 10, 2017 and I’m really excited to see how she’s gonna pull this off. On another note, can you guys believe I’ve never read The Phantom of the Opera!? There’s really no excuse of why I haven’t – I own the book! Still excited about this release, which is available for pre-order.

New Releases | Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman

Gemina (The Illuminae Files, #2)

Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.

When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.

But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.


I’ve yet to read Illuminae, but I heard it was an overwhelming success. Available for pre-order only. Publication date is October 18, 2016.

New Release|Fight Club 2 (Graphic Novel) by Chuck Palahniuk

This is unexpected. Fight Club was originally published in 1996 and the movie adapted in 99′. Fight Club 2 is the sequel to Fight Club 20 years later(!), however, unlike it’s predecessor, Fight Club 2 will be in form of a graphic novel. It’ll be released on June 28, 2016, but it’s currently available for pre-order. Although I wasn’t impressed by the first Fight Club novel, I’m excited about this graphic novel and believe that it’s got some serious potential. 


Some imaginary friends never go away . . .

Ten years after starting Project Mayhem, he lives a mundane life. A kid, a wife. Pills to keep his destiny at bay. But it won’t last long, the wife has seen to that. He’s back where he started, but this go-round he’s got more at stake than his own life.The time has arrived . . .Rize or Die.

Have you ever read Saga? Do you plan to? What are your feelings on graphic novels?

The Fever Code (The Maze Runner 0.6) by James Dashner

23267628

Once there was a world’s end.

The forests burned, the lakes and rivers dried up, and the oceans swelled.

Then came a plague, and fever spread across the globe. Families died, violence reigned, and man killed man.

Next came WICKED, who were looking for an answer. And then they found the perfect boy.

The boy’s name was Thomas, and Thomas built a maze.

Now there are secrets.

There are lies.

And there are loyalties history could never have foreseen.

This is the story of that boy, Thomas, and how he built a maze that only he could tear down.

All will be revealed.

A prequel to the worldwide Maze Runner phenomenon, The Fever Code is the book that holds all the answers. How did WICKED find the Gladers? Who are Group B? And what side are Thomas and Teresa really on? Lies will be exposed. Secrets will be uncovered. Loyalties will be proven. Fans will never see the truth coming.


I recently finished reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner, and I have to admit I’m intrigued to know how the world ended.

Four Roads Cross (Craft Sequence #5) by Max Gladstone

26114222

The great city of Alt Coulumb is in crisis. The moon goddess Seril, long thought dead, is back—and the people of Alt Coulumb aren’t happy. Protests rock the city, and Kos Everburning’s creditors attempt a hostile takeover of the fire god’s church. Tara Abernathy, the god’s in-house Craftswoman, must defend the church against the world’s fiercest necromantic firm—and against her old classmate, a rising star in the Craftwork world.

As if that weren’t enough, Cat and Raz, supporting characters from Three Parts Dead, are back too, fighting monster pirates; skeleton kings drink frozen cocktails, defying several principles of anatomy; jails, hospitals, and temples are broken into and out of; choirs of flame sing over Alt Coulumb; demons pose significant problems; a farmers’ market proves more important to world affairs than seems likely; doctors of theology strike back; Monk-Technician Abelard performs several miracles; The Rats! play Walsh’s Place; and dragons give almost-helpful counsel.

Lustlocked: A Sin du Jour Affair by Matt Wallace

The staff of New York’s premier supernatural catering company, has their work cut out for them in this outrageous follow-up to Envy of Angels.

The Goblin King (yes, that one) and his Queen are celebrating the marriage of their son to his human bride. Naturally the celebrations will be legendary.

But when desire and magic mix, the results can be unpredictable.

Our heroes are going to need more than passion for the job to survive the catering event of the decade!

The Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan

26252859

How do you punish an immortal?

By making him human.

After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favor.

But Apollo has many enemies – gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go . . . an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.


So, Rick Riordan started another Greek Mythology book and nobody told me?! Where the hell have I been? Seriously! Well, regardless of my lateness to this novel I’m still happy I became privy before it came out (May 3). Although I’m looking forward to this, I’m kinda disappointed for two reasons:

A) It’s not going to be an Adult novel. With a century old deity becoming human he’d be very…experienced to be a teenager, he has kids at freaking Camp Half-Blood for gosh sakes! We ALL know how those gods get down, which would’ve made a fun Adult fantasy novel.

B) Hasn’t he been milking the Percy Jackson since, I don’t know, forever! It’s the same character over and over again.

Buuuut I’m still going to read them, and love them, and fangirl them…
