Upcoming Releases - September 20 - 26

I didn't get to do this one yet again last week as I was too busy organizing Blogmania and BlogFest as well as working long hours, so Tuesday kind of rolled on right by and on Wednesday I realized that I had completely forgotten about posting it.  Oh well!  Such is life. 

I had also been on a library ban for the past few months as I really need to reduce my TBR pile, yet I had no choice but to go there today to pick up a DVD I needed for my class.  Unfortunately, the DVD section is right by the "New Releases" section and while I really thought I had the willpower to avoid it, once I was inside, I was like a kid in a candy store.  While I adore librarians, they are evil for putting the new releases in such tempting spots!!! (lol)   At least I emerged with only one DVD and four books, the others I put back on the shelf with a great show of determination and regret.  Anyone else have this problem?

When Addy is swept back in time, she couldn't be happier to leave her miserable life behind.  Now she's mistaken for Lady Matilda, the pampered ward of the king.  If Addy can play her play, she'll have glorious gowns, jewels, and something she's always longed for - the respect and admiration of others.  But then she meets Will, the falconer's son with sky blue eyes, who unsettles all her plans.

From shipwrecks to castle dungeons, from betrothals to hidden conspiracies, Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret.  When she discovers the truth, Addy must take matters into her own hands.  The stakes?  Her chance at true love...and the life she's meant to live.

The Replacement
by Brenna Yovanoff
Release Date: September 21, 2010

Mackie Doyle is not one of us.  Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, he comes from a world of tunnels and black murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess.  He is a Replacement - left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago.  Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood, and consecrated ground, he is fighting to survive in the human world. 

Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or to spend time with his crush, Tate.  But when Tate's baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem. He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place, in our world, or theirs.

  1. I haven't seen that cover for The Replacement yet. Nice.

  2. I'm really looking forward to The Replacement! It sounds eerie but great, and I love faerie stories. I like the UK cover too (the one you've pictured) though I must say I prefer the US one :p.
