It's Friday! Have You Turned Into A Book Yet? [9]

"It's Friday! Have You Turned Into A Book Yet?" is inspired by the #fridayreads 
Twitter meme, Book Journey's "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?", Should Be Reading's "WWW Wednesdays", Tynga's Reviews "Stacking the Shelves" and the various other book haul memes, and probably a few others I can't remember right now.

All covers/book title links lead to Goodreads.

I haven't got very far (like only 10 pages), so I don't have much to say, other than it seems like it will be great.

As you'll notice in Book News, the trailer for this was released Saturday, and when I watched it I was reminded greatly of The Secret Circle books by L.J. Smith, which I LOVE, so I though I check this out to see how they compare.

Thirst No. 5 came out Tuesday, and I picked it up, but when reading the back I decided I really should re-read the whole series before starting No. 5. I mean, this series is almost The Vampire Diaries show crazy (and I say show, because the  TVD books aren't that bad).

I'm thinking I will re-read this as well, just because I want to.
* I just remembered that the Fairy Tale Read-a-thon is this weekend, so my answers will most likely change here.

It. Was. Amazing! I absolutely LOVED it! And I can't believe it took me this long to read it.

I pre-ordered the book, but only a couple days before the book released, so it didn't come until this week.

(Books I bought.)
Spellcaster by Claudia Gray
Losing It by Cora Carmack
Thirst No. 5: The Sacred Veil by Christopher Pike

I wasn't going to get Losing It (the premise didn't really appeal to me), but good review after good review kept popping up on my Goodreads dash, so I decided to it a chance.

Jennifer Rush revealed the cover to the second book in her Altered series, Erased, and I love it! Look at those abs!! This is not the final cover, but Jenn says that there will, most likely, be only little tweaks. There's no synopsis yet, and the released date is Jan 2014.

Series Covers:

Robin Wasserman revealed the paperback cover to her (AMAZING!) The Book of Blood and Shadow. I adored the old cover but this one fits the book So. Much. Better. The paperback will release July 9th, 2013 from Ember/Random House.

One night. One body, broken in a pool of blood.
One killer, lost in the shadows. 
One girl, left behind.
Left alone, to face the consequences. 
To find the truth.
To avenge the dead. 

One night is all it takes to change Nora Kane's life forever. Her best friend is dead; her boyfriend has vanished. And the trail of blood leads straight back to her: The person who might be responsible. The person who might be next.  

Desperate to save the people she loves and determined to find justice for the ones she's lost, Nora unearths a dark web of secret societies and shadowy conspirators, all driven by a mad desire to possess something that might not even exist. Something to which Nora herself might hold the key. It turns out her night of blood is just one piece in a puzzle that spans continents and centuries—and solving it may be the only way she can save her own life.

Hypable revealed the trailer to Claudia Gray's new novel Spellcaster.

EW's Shelf Life revealed the trailer to Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza.
