April New Releases

Hello folks! So today is April 5th - and a surprising amount of (in my opinion) awesome books are being released not only this month: but TODAY! Also - these are all second or third or fifth or SEVENTH in a series - like how'd that happen? I feel like there are fewer and fewer stand-alone titles coming out these days.

Anyways! Here are the goods:

Fire Ascending (The Last Dragon Chronicles #7) by Chris d'Lacey
Published by Orchard Books - April 5th 2012
Age: Older Fiction/Young Adult

What can I say? This has been an AMAZING journey - David and his dragons have been on such a saga of adventure and I've never had a dull moment through any of the books. This is a series that has evolved smartly and with continued interest and surprise.

You can find details for the first book: The Fire Within here.

Apocalypse Moon (Joshua Files #5) by M.G. Harris
Published by Scholastic - April 5th 2012
Age: Older Fiction/Young Adult

Another end of a saga - M.G. Harris' series has been so much FUN to read and every time I finish one of these books it makes me want to get on a plane to South America without another thought. I cannot wait to read this!

You can find details for the first book: Invisible City here.

Death Cure (Maze Runner #3) by James Dashner
Published by Chicken House - April 5th 2012
Age: Young Adult

The third and final part of this fantastic dystopian thriller. I can't wait to see how it ends! (Although have you noticed how every dystopian book that comes out now mentions Hunger Games? *laughs*)
This has already been released in the states late last year but I've been collecting these covers here.

You can find details for the first book: The Maze Runner here.

A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) by Beth Revis
Published by Puffin - April 5th 2012
Age: Young Adult

Aaaaaand last but not least - the next episode in the space/romance saga that is Across the Universe. I didn't love the first book, but it's made me intrigued enough to want to find out what happens next. I do wish there was more Science Fiction in the Teen/Young Adult market, and if they have to chuck a torrid love affair into the mix to make it work - then so be it.

OMG can't WAIT to get my hands on A Million Suns! I loved Across the Universe. Definitely one that I'll have to fight to put off, so that I don't have to wait too long ;D
