Title: Dove Arising by Karen BaoWant? Add to your Goodreads list!
Release Date: August 19th 2014
Published by: Viking Juvenile
Summary (from Goodreads):
Phaet Theta has lived her whole life in a colony on the Moon. She’s barely spoken since her father died in an accident nine years ago. She cultivates the plants in Greenhouse 22, lets her best friend talk for her, and stays off the government’s radar.
Then her mother is arrested.
The only way to save her younger siblings from the degrading Shelter is by enlisting in the Militia, the faceless army that polices the Lunar bases and protects them from attacks by desperate Earth-dwellers. Training is brutal, but it’s where Phaet forms an uneasy but meaningful alliance with the preternaturally accomplished Wes, a fellow outsider.
Rank high, save her siblings, free her mom: that’s the plan. Until Phaet’s logically ordered world begins to crumble...
Why I'm waiting for Dove Arising:
What a gorgeous cover! I feel like someone's brought me to space just by looking at it. Anyway, I haven't read a lot of sci-fi novels like this one so I'm definitely intrigued. It's like a mix of quite a few popular ideas that gave birth to something that sounds similar but unique at the same time. Hmmmm. I'll definitely be keeping my eye out on this one.
Title: The Fall by Bethany GriffinWant? Add to your Goodreads list!
Release Date: October 7th 2014
Published by: Greenwillow Books
Summary (from Goodreads):
Madeline Usher is doomed.
She has spent her life fighting fate, and she thought she was succeeding. Until she woke up in a coffin.
Ushers die young. Ushers are cursed. Ushers can never leave their house, a house that haunts and is haunted, a house that almost seems to have a mind of its own. Madeline’s life—revealed through short bursts of memory—has hinged around her desperate plan to escape, to save herself and her brother. Her only chance lies in destroying the house.
In the end, can Madeline keep her own sanity and bring the house down?
Why I'm waiting for The Fall:
Oh my gosh, everything about this book, from the cover to the summary sounds so creepy and intriguing. I know Beth Griffin's series Masque of Red Death is a series based on one of Poe's works so I shouldn't be surprised that this one is too, but this book? The Fall sounds deliciously dark and interesting that even though I'm a wimp for anything scary, I still want to read this one.
Imagine being an Usher... and then suddenly waking up inside a coffin? Oh no.
