Just a little something that you guys should be adding to your TBR…
Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she’s always dreamed of.
That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs.
As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.
If Alyssa stays in the human realm, she could endanger Jeb, her parents, and everyone she loves. But if she steps through the rabbit hole again, she’ll face a deadly battle that could cost more than just her head.
Oh, Morpheus ❤
P.S. This is book number two, so be sure to check out my review of Splintered and start reading so you’re ready for Unhinged in January 2014!
Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.
But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?
Dark Triumph is probably my most anticipated read of 2013, the cover is amazing (how awesome does Sybella look!?) and I can’t wait to find out who this “mysterious knight” is! Sooo it is no question that I wanted to get my hands on this book immediately after finishing Grave Mercy (I had an ARC, do you know how long I have been waiting?!) Robin LaFevers announced that the book trailer premiered today, along with a pretty awesome playlist, and anyone who shares it gets entered to win an ARC of Dark Triumph!!!
To watch the trailer go here and if you share and win a copy, share the love my friends!!

Another blog update from another favorite author regarding another of my most anticipated reads of 2012!! Michelle Hodkin announced on her blog (that I may or may not have been stalking for the past few months just to jump on this tidbit as soon as it was posted) that the title to the sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is…
The Evolution of Mara Dyer
I AM SO EXCITED!! Michelle doesn’t have any other information regarding the synopsis or release date but I think this will hold me over nicely!
I have been stuck in the archives all day and just emerged to find that Laini Taylor has updated her blog with the title of the sequel to Daughter of Smoke and Bone AND a teaser from the new book!! I AM SO EXCITED!! (So excited that when I squealed I scared my cat off of my lap and she is currently seething under the bed where she is safe from my shenanigans.)
So without further ado, the teaser for the sequel of Daughter of Smoke and Bone is…
Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living—one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers’ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying.
Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel—a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness.
This was not that world.
I absolutely love this and I can. not. wait. for it to be release time!! Who else is excited?
