New Release Tuesday: 4/2/2013

Welcome to another installment of New Release Tuesday. This week includes a book I’ve been waiting WAY too long for (The Collector) and several that look fantastic!

Browse through and let me know which new releases, the week of 4/2/2013, you’re most excited for. What do you think of the tattoo on Walking Disaster?

YA Fantasy

13449677The Collector 

by Victoria Scott

Goodreads blurb: He makes good girls…bad. 

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple: weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal-opportunity collector and doesn’t want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within ten days.

Dante doesn’t know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect, he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector…and uncover emotions deeply buried.

The RisingThe Rising

by Kelley Armstrong

Goodreads blurb: Things are getting desperate for Maya and her friends. Hunted by the powerful St. Clouds and now a rival Cabal as well, they’re quickly running out of places to hide. And with the whole world thinking they died in a helicopter crash, it’s not like they can just go to the authorities for help.

All they have is the name and number of someone who might be able to give them a few answers. Answers to why they’re so valuable, and why their supernatural powers are getting more and more out of control.

But Maya is unprepared for the truths that await her. And now, like it or not, she’ll have to face down some demons from her past if she ever hopes to move on with her life. Because Maya can’t keep running forever.

Romantic Suspense

Surrender

Surrender

by Stephanie Tyler

Goodreads blurb: DESPERATE, FEARLESS, AND HUNTED

For former Navy SEAL Dare O’Rourke, Section 8 was legendary. The son of one of its missing members, he grew up in the shadow of its secrets. All he knew was that it was a cabal of operatives discharged from branches of the military and reassigned to extremely dangerous, off- the-books international missions. And that their handler was as shrouded in mystery as the missions themselves.

NOTHING CAN STOP THEM. NOTHING CAN BREAK THEM.

Now the handler of Section 8 has given orders to kill any remaining members, along with their families. Dare must save his long-lost half sister, Avery, whom he was never meant to meet. Determined to fight for their lives and find their missing father, Dare and Avery bring together for one last mission those who are in danger because of their relationship to Section 8—to avenge their families and to survive.

Historical Fiction

All that isAll That Is

by James Salter

Goodreads blurb: An extraordinary literary event, a major new novel by the PEN/Faulkner winner and acclaimed master: a sweeping, seductive, deeply moving story set in the years after World War II.

From his experiences as a young naval officer in battles off Okinawa, Philip Bowman returns to America and finds a position as a book editor. It is a time when publishing is still largely a private affair—a scattered family of small houses here and in Europe—a time of gatherings in fabled apartments and conversations that continue long into the night. In this world of dinners, deals, and literary careers, Bowman finds that he fits in perfectly. But despite his success, what eludes him is love. His first marriage goes bad, another fails to happen, and finally he meets a woman who enthralls him—before setting him on a course he could never have imagined for himself.

Romantic and haunting, All That Is explores a life unfolding in a world on the brink of change. It is a dazzling, sometimes devastating labyrinth of love and ambition, a fiercely intimate account of the great shocks and grand pleasures of being alive.

Where to buy: Amazon / Barnes and Noble

  1. I’m actually about to purchase The Collector. For the past year I’ve been researching (and reading) books about fallen angels that have been cropping up in Young Adult and Teen. (I’m still betting that in the next two years fallen angels will be the new vampires for tweens everywhere.) So, I like that this book has hell problems and is a bit more adult!

    Also, I kind of dig the tattoo. I had to double take to really like it though. I’m just glad it isn’t pink. That would have been too much!

    • Hey Tyler!
      Oh my gosh. I’m reading The Collector right now and I am glued to it! It is AWESOME. Let me know how you like it. I think Victoria Scott writes well as a male POV and Dante is just SO darn likeable and sassy!

      Since you read so many, what are your favorite angel/demon books out?

      I really like the tattoo a lot but I can’t exactly picture it on a dude. Hehe. I mean, except for the dude on this cover. I think his muscles help. :P
