Highly Anticipated 2014 New Releases

Ok so this year there are many new release's that I want to get my hands on but I have narrowed it down to 10 :) I just have to say that these are in no particular order, they are just random.

Title: The One (The Selection #3)

Author: Kiera Cass

Release Date: 6th May

Publisher: Harper teen

The Selection changed the lives of thirty-five girls forever. And now, the time has come for one winner to be chosen.
America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the competition approaches its end and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.  (source: Goodreads synopsis)

Ok so I am quite excited for this one (as I will probably say about all of these haha), we will finally get to see who America chooses and this is the final installment in the trilogy so something big is going to go down. I really like the cover of this and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.

Title: The Infinite Sea (The Fifth Wave #2)

Author: Rick Yancey

Release Date: 15th May

Publisher: Putnam juvenile

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity. Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone.
As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.
Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate. (Source: Goodreads synopsis)
So I read The fifth wave about halfway through last year and I absolutely loved it, if you have not read The fifth wave then please go and read it, I am not going to spoil what happened for those who have not read the book but something big happened and it left quite a cliff hanger so I am looking forward to finding out what's going to happen.

Title: The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #3)

Author: Michelle Hodkin

Release date: 4th November 2014

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

It had to end sometime, but Mara had no idea it would end like this. Experience the mind-blowing conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer trilogy. Loyalties are betrayed, guilt and innocence tangle, and fate and chance collide in this shocking conclusion to Mara Dyer’s story. (Source: Goodreads synopsis)

Like with The Fifth Wave, The Evolution of Mara Dyer had a big cliff hanger so I am curious as to how this will turn out and whether or not Mara just see's things or if what she see's is real.

Title: Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5)

Author: Richelle Mead

Release Date: 29th July

Publisher: Razorbill

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.
In The Fiery Heart, Sydney risked everything to follow her gut, walking a dangerous line to keep her feelings hidden from the Alchemists.
Now in the aftermath of an event that ripped their world apart, Sydney and Adrian struggle to pick up the pieces and find their way back to each other. But first, they have to survive.
For Sydney, trapped and surrounded by adversaries, life becomes a daily struggle to hold on to her identity and the memories of those she loves. Meanwhile, Adrian clings to hope in the face of those who tell him Sydney is a lost cause, but the battle proves daunting as old demons and new temptations begin to seize hold of him. . . .
Their worst fears now a chilling reality, Sydney and Adrian face their darkest hour in this heart-pounding fifth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where all bets are off. (Source: Goodreads synopsis)

If any of you have not read the Vampire Academy series then I recommend you go pick that up then pick up the bloodlines series. In saying that though you do not have to read Vampire Academy to read this series, I just really enjoy both and I think you would understand some of the story a bit better. At the end of The Fiery Heart we are left with a shocking cliff hanger (yet again) and I honestly do not know how Sydney is going to get herself out of this one, only 5 months to wait and see.

Title: Isla and the Happily ever after

Author: Stephanie Perkins

Release Date: 14th August 2014

Publisher: Dutton

From the glittering streets of Manhattan to the moonlit rooftops of Paris, falling in love is easy for hopeless dreamer Isla and introspective artist Josh. But as they begin their senior year in France, Isla and Josh are quickly forced to confront the heart-breaking reality that happily-ever-afters aren’t always forever.
Their romantic journey is skilfully 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.

I've really enjoyed Stephanie Perkins novels Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door so I am highly looking forward to this release.

Title: Heir of Fire

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Release date: 2nd September

Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Childrens

Lost and broken, Celaena Sardothien's only thought is to avenge the savage death of her dearest friend: as the King of Adarlan's Assassin, she is bound to serve this tyrant, but he will pay for what he did. Any hope Celaena has of destroying the king lies in answers to be found in Wendlyn.

Sacrificing his future, Chaol, the Captain of the King's Guard, has sent Celaena there to protect her, but her darkest demons lay in that same place. If she can overcome them, she will be Adarlan's biggest threat - and his own toughest enemy.

Will Celaena find the strength not only to win her own battles, but to fight a war that could pit her loyalties to her own people against those she has grown to love?

This third novel in the Throne of Glass sequence, from New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas, is packed with more heart-stopping action, devastating drama and swoonsome romance, and introduces some fierce new heroines to love and hate (Source: Goodreads synopsis )

I am definitely looking forward to this novel, I read the first  two books in early December and I love them, I must buy physical copies. If you are looking for a fast paced suspenseful  YA Fantasy then I suggest that you go and pick this up :)

Disclaimer: yes I am aware that this is not the cover, the cover has not been released yet so I decided to just use the pic of the first novel in the series, I will update this when there is more info.

(Source: goodreads synopsis )

I cannot wait to see what happens in this final installment, if you have not picked up this series I suggest that you go and do it now, Alexandra is an amazing world builder and I fell in love with this from the first page and I cannot explain how excited I am for this one.

I picked up Unbreakable with a gift card I got for my birthday for my birthday (which is today but I got the gift card like a week ago) and I had not heard anything about it but I saw it was by Kami Garcia who is  a co-author for the Beautiful Creatures series and I read the description and it sounded pretty good so I got it and I absolutely loved it, It was soooooooo much better than Beautiful Creatures and I am glad that I picked it up and I cannot wait until the next installment.

Title: To All the Boys I've Loved Before
Author: Jenny Han

Release date: 22nd April

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all. (source: Goodreads synopsis )

I found this on goodreads and I have read her summer series, which is one of my favourite trilogy's and if you have not read them yet I suggest that you go and pick them up :) I thought the plot line sounds interesting and I am excited to read it.

Note: So I found this cover online and I think it looks legit, but until goodreads releases the cover I will keep this one up :)
Title: Waterfall (Teardrop #2)

Lauren Kate

Release Date: 14th October

Publisher: Delacorte

Synopsis: There is currently none available. (source: Goodreads )

Teardrop was another one of the books that I got with my gift card and I have had my eye on it for a while and I am so glad that it gave it a shot. I enjoyed Lauren Kate's Fallen series but there were a few things that I didn't like about the books but in saying that they were not bad at all, it was just minor details. When I read Teardrop it grabbed my attention from the start and I think it was so much better written that the fallen series and I cannot wait to find out what happens in the next installment. :)

I hope that you all enjoyed this post and I wish you all Happy Reading!
Feel free to comment what your most anticipated new releases are, I would love to know :D

Reviews coming soon...
Teardrop by Lauren Kate
