Spotlight Friday (139)

Hello my lovelies!  It’s that time again where we look at amazing new books that are going to be coming out soon!  This week, we’re all about series–and a couple of these are going to be edge-of-your-seaters.  I’m so excited!

Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #3) by Ransom Riggs

Release Date: September 22, 2015

*Potential Series Spoilers Ahead*

Summary (from Goodreads): Time is running out for the Peculiar Children. With a dangerous madman on the loose and their beloved Miss Peregrine still in danger, Jacob Portman and Emma Bloom are forced to stage the most daring of rescue missions. They’ll travel through a war-torn landscape, meet new allies, and face greater dangers than ever. . . . Will Jacob come into his own as the hero his fellow Peculiars know him to be? This action-packed adventure features more than 50 all-new Peculiar photographs

What’s To Like: I love trying to describe this series to my students who look at me like I’m insane.  “Ok, so there’s this boy, and he ends up going back in time to a home for kids with special powers.  Like, this one kid has a whole hive of bees inside of him…No, it’s cooler than it sounds!  Anywhere, there are like, talking animals and these really creepy photos and stuff…”  I’m just so pumped to see how this series ends.  No matter what happens, I really think it’ll be epic.

Wild Crush (Wild Cards, #2) by Simone Elkeles

Release Date: September 22, 2015

*Very slight potential for series spoilers, but I’m putting a warning here anyway*

Summary (from Goodreads): When the only girl you want is the one you can’t have…

Bad boy Vic Salazar breaks all the rules except one: Don’t make a move on your best friend’s girl. It’s a Guy Code that Vic lives by. It doesn’t matter that he’s had a crush on her for years. Monika Fox is off limits.

Monika has a secret of her own and when a tragedy throws her and Vic together, the only boy she trusts is the one she shouldn’t confide in. Vic.

As Vic struggles to keep his distance, and Monika struggles with her secrets, will their wild connection violate every rule both vowed never to break—about relationships, about friendship, about love?

What’s To Like: Besides the fact that this is a Simone Elkeles book, I’m drawn to this for A) what makes Vic break his own personal code and B) what the tragedy is that Monika endures.  Do I remember what happened in the previous book?  Nope, not really.  (Just a flash of a memory, here and there.)  But I love a good romance every now and then.  This should hit the spot.

A Mad Zombie Party (White Rabbit Chronicles, #4) by Gena Showalter

Release Date: September 29, 2015

*Ok, yeah, this time, DEFINITE SERIES SPOILERS AHEAD*

Summary (from Goodreads): Ali Bell and Cole Holland’s crew of zombie slayers thought they’d won the war against Anima Industries, the evil company responsible for capturing and experimenting on zombies in an effort to discover the secret to immortality. In the last epic clash, the slayers lost many of their crew and closest friends. But Frosty, the ice man himself, has not recovered from one casualty in particular—the love of his life, Kat Parker.

On the path to self-annihilation, Frosty receives a message from beyond—Kat’s spirit returns, insisting he partner with rogue slayer Camilla Marks. Frosty will do anything for Kat. Except that. Camilla is the one who betrayed them all, leading to Kat’s death.

But when Anima rises from the grave to become a force the slayers may not have the strength to overcome, Frosty, Camilla and all the slayers will have to work together to survive. And one broken slayer will learn that sometimes, the line between hate and attraction is blurred…and the road to redemption isn’t through revenge, but in letting go of the past and grabbing hold of the future.

What’s To Like: This is that unexpected book you never knew you wanted.  I thought I’d be happy after the third book, but then it was like, “WOAH.  We get a book from FROSTY’S perspective?!  WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE?”  I am legitimately freaking out over this.  I will snatch this off the library shelves in my best cat-burglar imitation.

  1. What a cool post! I do have to admit that I didn’t actually read the substance of your post, I’m too interested in these series to look at spoilers. 🙂 I have especially been interested in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series, but whenever I put in the first book, it doesn’t show up on Goodreads. Do you know why that is?
