Friday News Report: Friday, September 11, 2012

So this week was super crazy and hectic for me in regards to school, so I was unable to finish I Heard the Owl Call my Name this week, but I’m shooting to finish it this weekend. The book that I will be reading next is Queen of Shadows (I’ve been avoiding all the spoilers since it was released) and I will have that reviewed as soon as possible. I will also say that eventually I will go back and write reviews for the other books in the Throne of Glass series, just not yet. Anyways, there weren’t as many releases this week as last week, but I was able to find some New Adult books and some Adult books as well! There were also some cover reveals this week and they have special giveaway opportunities, so go check those out!

Cover Releases:


Wax by Gina Damico

Release date: August 2, 2016

Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

About the Book:

Paraffin, Vermont, is known the world over as home to the Grosholtz Candle Factory. But behind the sunny retail space bursting with overwhelming scents and homemade fudge, seventeen-year-old Poppy Palladino discovers something dark and unsettling: a back room filled with dozens of startlingly life-like wax sculptures, crafted by one very strange old lady. Poppy hightails it home, only to be shocked when one of the figures—a teenage boy who doesn’t seem to know what he is—jumps naked and screaming out of the trunk of her car. She tries to return him to the candle factory, but before she can, a fire destroys the mysterious workshop—and the old woman is nowhere to be seen.

With the help of the wax boy, who answers to the name Dud, Poppy resolves to find out who was behind the fire. But in the course of her investigation, she discovers that things in Paraffin aren’t always as they seem, that the Grosholtz Candle Factory isn’t as pure as its reputation—and that some of the townspeople she’s known her entire life may not be as human as they once were. In fact, they’re starting to look a little . . . waxy. Can Poppy and Dud extinguish the evil that’s taking hold of their town before it’s too late?

Fans of Gina Damico’s creepy Croak trilogy and the acclaimed Hellhole will be wowed by Wax!

Identity Crisis by Melissa Schorr

Release date: January 1, 2016

About the Book:

When curvaceous Annalise Bradley’s scandalous freshman year hookup sparks the anger of her female classmates, three of them decide to get her back by “catfishing” her, creating a fake online profile of the perfect boy to toy with her affections. Against her better nature, introverted Noelle Spiers goes along with her friends’ plan, hoping to distract Annalise from dreamy Cooper Franklin, her lifelong crush who has fallen for Annalise instead. As Annalise discovers she is being played and seeks revenge, Noelle increasingly regrets her role in the cruel hoax and tries to salvage their relationship. Told in alternative perspectives, IDENTITY CRISIS covers romance, betrayal, and timeless friendship in the age of modern technology.
