November 21, 2013 | Comments: 1 Comment
Ever heard about a new book that is coming out, gotten super excited about it, and then realized it’s the second, third, fourth, etc. book in a series? This happens to me A LOT, and it totally gets me down. I have a lot to read, and if I don’t hear about a series until the third book comes out, I feel like I don’t have time to read it. And that’s not fun for anyone. So, from now on, we’re going to start featuring books in series that are currently available and have more books coming out BEFORE those books come out right here on our blog. In Winter 2014, we have a second book in a series and a third book in a series coming out. They don’t come out until February! And it’s November now! That gives you at least two months to read the currently available books in the series and get super excited about the new releases! Yay!
Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, the first two books in The Lunar Chronicles, are now available! If you like fairytale retellings with futuristic elements, life and death situations, and great friendships and romances, then these books are for you!
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl . . .
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison–even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.
Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Unremembered by Jessica Brody, the first book in the Unremembered Series, is now available! If you like books about amnesia and crazy scientific experiments that are filled with awesome characters and a swoonworthy romance, then this book is for you!
When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.
Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.
Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.
Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?
The second book in the series, Unforgotten, comes out on February 25, 2014! An eSampler of the first five chapters will be available on December 17, 2013!
And if that’s not enough, Jessica Brody wrote a short story from Zen’s point of view called “Undiscovered” that will be available on Valentine’s Day! We fell in love with it and can’t wait to share more information about it soon!
