The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
I cannot wait to read this! Already tipped to be the dystopia of the year, it also has a gorgeous cover. I am so excited to have it. Although I do have really high expectations for this one, the whole concept seems fantastic and from what I have already read it seems really interesting. There is a part of the cover that has me completely intrigue. If you look inbetween the tree's, there is clearly a city there. In a destroyed world, I'm really looking forward to finding out why that is there. But, I went to WHSmith for this book.
Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne
I saw this on the shelf and immediately picked up. I wasn't planning on reading this one, and hadn't paid much interest in it, but I vaguely remember seeing a book trailer and thinking it looked good. This is another where I adore the concept. With everything you need, and no parents, you'd think it was great. You could do anything. But, then the world outside is being destroyed. I can't wait to read this one. And it's also set out by days, which is completely different to my usual taste.
Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
I recently tried reading Margeret Stohl's solo debut Icons, but couldn't get into it. The set-up is very confusing and complicated, and after fifty pages I couldn't read anymore. I will definitely pick it up again, maybe later this month, but for now I'm going back to the series I fell in love with.
Pretty Girl Thirteen by Liz Coley
The cover is just gorgeous! I love the colour, the snow globe, everything. And the book itself sounds amazing. I just need to read this one. I think it's going to be so interesting, but also quite dark. There's also this opportunity for a huge amount of mystery and I just really want to know where she has been and why. I haven't heard of this one, but I've just been drawn in.
