Fresh Batch (March 17th – 23rd)

Posted by

Exclusively titled for Xpresso Reads, Fresh Batch features the hottest releases of this upcoming week.

Flavor of the week:

17 & Gone
Nova Ren Suma
Publication date: March 21st 2013
by Dutton Juvenile

Seventeen-year-old Lauren is having visions of girls who have gone missing. And all these girls have just one thing in common—they are 17 and gone without a trace. As Lauren struggles to shake these waking nightmares, impossible questions demand urgent answers: Why are the girls speaking to Lauren? How can she help them? And… is she next? As Lauren searches for clues, everything begins to unravel, and when a brush with death lands her in the hospital, a shocking truth emerges, changing everything.

With complexity and richness, Nova Ren Suma serves up a beautiful, visual, fresh interpretation of what it means to be lost.

    17 & Gone sounds creepy AND awesome! The Art of Wishing,OCD, the Dude, and Me and Heart Like Mine sound like great reads too.

    I haven’t come across the Celestial Blues series before so I might check that out too.Thanks for sharing,Giselle! 🙂

    I read Pretty Girl-13, it was a little iffy for me, but in the end I adored it so much. I gave that 3 stars.

    Gah! My desperation for Clockwork Princess is never going to end -.-,I’m having this giveaway for it, and I am so darn tempted to enter it myself so I can keep that pretty!
    I’ve heard many positive things about 17 & Gone, def. checking that one out soon :)Thanks for sharing <3

  3. Megan K.

    Wow, 17 & GONE is the flavor of the week? Awesome! Really hope I’ll get the chance to check it out. I’m super excited for PRETTY GIRl-13 as well. I haven’t heard of many of these, but some look pretty interesting.

    Have a lovely weekend, Giselle. 🙂

    17 & Gone is one that I really want to get. I liked Pretty Girl-13, my review goes up Monday. I am so excited for Clockwork Princess!!! I was going to get it for nook too so I could read it right away, but I’m just going to wait for my pretty pre-ordered copy to come in the mail.

    I’ve been hearing a lot about 17 & Gone & Pretty Girl-13 but I can’t see me reading either of those lol. I really should get into the Infernal Devices series, especially with the last one coming up…but considering how underwhelmed I was with her Mortal Instruments series – even the first 3 which everyone loved o.O yeah, I’m kinda scared! Mortality looks pretty cool though!

    ps- love the new banner! (unless you’ve been using it for awhile and I didn’t notice, in which case please disregard >.<)

    I’m sure everyone is going to be freaking out about Clockwork Princess this week, but um… I haven’t exactly started that series yet. Yeah. But I’m really excited for 17 & Gone! I’ve heard some really great things about it and I’m looking forward to reading that one. =)

    Thanks for sharing, Giselle! <3

    Been waiting and waiting and WAITING for The Art Of Wishing to release, so that’s my top thing this week. Also going to grab Clockwork Princess–I’m getting more aggressive in how I’m reading series this year (actually letting myself read them back to back and then spacing the reviews out) so I’m excited for that one. One thing I didn’t see, which I thought was releasing this week(?), is With All My Soul by Rachel Vincent. I started reading her Soul Screamers series last month, I’ve already consumed three of the seven (including this one) books and I plan to get the last the minute it’s out because the series is totally amazing.

    So this week looks like it should be pretty awesome. 😀
