New in February

I am SUPER THRILLED about the following releases and can't wait to get my hands on these novels:

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
Picks up where Delirium left off continuing Lena's quest for freedom in a world where love is forbidden.  Recommended for readers looking for adventure and romance.

Fever by Lauren DeStefano
Continues Rhine's story after she and Gabriel escape Vaughn's beautiful mansion and awful experiments.  But the outside world is far from safe, especially when everyone has an expiration date.  This series is highly recommended, but I recommend reading in order.

Cloaked by Alex Flinn
Fairy tales are turned on their heads once more by Alex Flinn's deft weaving of action and humor.  Johnny never set out to be a hero, just a decent cobbler; but when a princess in distress talks him into helping track down her missing brother, Johnny's life is changed forever.

Various Positions by Martha Schabas
Fourteen-year-old Georgia's world is falling apart and the only that distracts her from her parent's disintegrating marriage and the distance of her friends is ballet.  So when Georgia is accepted to Canada's premiere ballet academy she jumps at the chance to learn from the best.  Soon after arriving, Artistic Director Roderick Allen singles Georgia out as a dance with star potential and Georgia responds by becoming obsessed with becoming the perfect ballerina.  But when line between teacher and student blurs no one is prepared for the outcome. 

Butterfly Clues by Kate Ellison
This thriller centers around Lo's whose obsessions have controlled her life thus far.  But obsession takes a sinister turn when she finds a butterfly-shaped charm that belonged to a recently murdered girl.  Determined to uncover the truth, Lo is drawn into a dark world that may not let her go.

Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
In a world where the powerful Brotherhood sees magic as evil and witch hunting has been taken to a new level of horror, Cate must protect herself and her sisters by hiding their abilities.  But is power truly "wicked" if you are born with it?
