Spotlight Friday (68)

Hey guys!  It’s Friday!  I hope everyone’s enjoying this last weekend of February before we move into March.  And I don’t know about you guys, but I think the Groundhog lied when he said spring was coming early…all these winter storms sure say otherwise.  Anyway, since it’s cold, that means more time to curl up with a good book!  Here are some new ones that will be coming out soon!

The Goddess Inheritance (The Goddess Test, #3) by Aimee Carter

Release Date: February 26, 2013

*Spoilers In Summary!  This is the FINAL book in the trilogy!*

Summary (from Goodreads)During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can’t stop her–until Cronus offers a deal.

In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he’ll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.

Even if it costs her eternity.

What’s To Like: Somehow, this missed my checklist when I was going through February books, but tada!  Here it is on my list!  Anyway, I freaking love this series.  It’s so real.  The characters are far from perfect, even though they’re gods, Henry the most real of them all.  I just love it so much I could curl up with these books for eternity and be happy.  So I’m really REALLY hoping that this finale does the series justice.  But it should be awesome.

The Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices, #3) by Cassandra Clare

Release Date: March 19, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads): In Clockwork Princess, Tessa and her companions travel all over the world as they race to stop the clockwork army before it’s too late. As Jem’s health worsens alarmingly and his friends search desperately for a cure, can Tessa choose between the two boys she loves—even if it means never seeing the other one again?

What’s To Like: Ok, so there are like, 12 different pictures of the cover, but I’m going with the one on Goodreads.  And I know that the summary is short, but it kinda feels like an appetizer, you know?  Like, “Hey, here’s just a little something to get you really wanting to read it and we’ll leave it at that, K?”  But seriously, this is also the last book in this series, which is awesome and sad at the same time.  I want to know what happens to Tessa and the others, but it’s the end of another series.  While that’s a good thing for my to-read list, it’s gonna be a sad ending, I can feel it.

17 & Gone by Nova Ren Suma

Release Date: March 21, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads)Seventeen-year-old Lauren is having visions of girls who have gone missing. And all these girls have just one thing in common—they are 17 and gone without a trace. As Lauren struggles to shake these waking nightmares, impossible questions demand urgent answers: Why are the girls speaking to Lauren? How can she help them? And… is she next? As Lauren searches for clues, everything begins to unravel, and when a brush with death lands her in the hospital, a shocking truth emerges, changing everything.

With complexity and richness, Nova Ren Suma serves up a beautiful, visual, fresh interpretation of what it means to be lost.

What’s To Like: Visions?  You have my attention.  This sounds like a very complex and awesome mystery.  I really want to know what happens to Lauren and who’s kidnapping the girls.  This will probably be one of those books that flies under your fingertips.
