Title: Enmity by E.J. AndrewsWant? Add to your Goodreads list!
Release Date: April 2014
Published by: Harlequin Australia
Summary (from Goodreads):
Love vs Life.
Good vs Evil.
War vs Warfare.
Which would you choose?
After a solar flare wipes out most of the world’s inhabitants, it leaves behind nothing but a desolate earth and a desperate population. Existence is no longer a certainty. And with factions now fighting for the power to rule, people start to become reckless with their lives. The world has become a dangerous place.
Amongst the ensuing chaos, Nate and Hermia — two victims of the new world order — are taken against their will to The Compound. Joined by eight other teenagers all chosen for a specific reason, Nate and Hermia are forced to train as assassins to overthrow the current president and make way for a new leader of the free world. Here, they learn to plan, fight, and most importantly... to survive.
Except, despite the casual cruelty of their new existence, both Nate and Hermia — two very strong but very different people — begin to form fragile bonds within the group. But they soon realize their happiness is short lived...because their training is just the beginning.
A war awaits...regardless of how ready or willing they may be.
Why I'm waiting for Enmity:
It reminds me a little bit of Margaret Stohl's Icons. Doesn't it make you wonder how assassins in a world where solar flares threatening the civilization of the world fit in the story. And why the solar flare? Was it a conspiracy? And what is with this war? What kind of war is it? And for what? With all these questions, it's evident how curious I am about this story. I need to find out more!

Published by: Sourcebook Fire
Summary (from Goodreads):
Two jumped off the pier that night...but only one came back alive
Bryn did everything with her best friend Erica. So when someone dared Erica to jump off the pier one night at Harding Beach, Bryn was right by her side. But when Bryn made it back to the surface, Erica was nowhere to be found. Bryn tries to make a fresh start by burying her memories of that awful night. But when a Twitter post from "EricaNShaw" pops up on her feed and a chilling voice mail appears on her phone, she realizes that someone isn't ready to let go of the past...
Why I'm waiting for The Dare:
Hannah Jayne's novels always have this dangerously mysterious vibe. The summaries for her books never fail to give me goosebumps whenever I read them, and The Dare's is no exception. It's got that wonderfully chilling potential and I'm pretty sure this is going to be a thrill of a read. It makes me a little bit afraid to be honest, and a little intrigued at the same time.What do you think?
