Hey, guys! As you probably know, there are some pretty exciting books and movies coming out soon, but I’ll do a separate post for the movies. Here’s my list, and I hope you enjoy!
Series: Heroes of Olympus, #4
Author: Rick Riordan
Summary: At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy’s instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea’s forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?
They have no choice. If the demigods don’t succeed, Gaea’s armies will never die. They have no time. In about a month, the Romans will march on Camp Half-Blood. The stakes are higher than ever in this adventure that dives into the depths of Tartarus. -Goodreads
My Notes: House of Hades is the fourth installment of Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series. For those of you who haven’t read these books, this series is actually the spin-off series of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. That’s a plus!
HoH is being released on October 8! I actually preordered it. I can’t wait for its arrival!
Series: Divergent, #3
Author: Veronica Roth
Summary: One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent. -Goodreads
My Notes: Allegiant is the third and final installment of Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy! Allegiant comes out on October 22. I cannot wait to get my hands on this book, and hopefully, I can buy it–I know if I put myself on my library’s hold list, I’ll probably get it in about ten years from now! 😀
Also, a special thanks to Tin over at http://tindreams.wordpress.com/ for introducing me to the series!
Series: Legend, #3
Author: Marie Lu
He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?
June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion. -Goodreads
My Notes: Champion is the third and final installment of Marie Lu’s Legend trilogy It’ll be released on November 5, 2013! There was a lot of hype for the Legend trilogy, and I thought the first two books were great! I hope Champion blows us all away.
That concludes my list of books I’m looking forward to! I’ll post a list of movies I’m looking forward to, as well, but that one will probably be much, much shorter than this, haha! Congratulations if you made it through this, though! You get a gold star!
Until next time,
I just realized that the Champion cover is, like, a billion times larger than the other covers! Haha, oh, well…
