Bookworm News: March Edition

 

It's time for another edition of Bookworm News. Every month I'll be collecting information on cover reveals (not those already mentioned on the blog) and book releases as well as mentioning my own book reviews written on my Surrounded by Books Reviews' blog. Then, I'll report the news I've found on the fourth Monday of the month. Side note: Due to the A to Z Challenge, there will be no Bookworm News in April.

Books Read

Psych: Mind Over Magic by William Rabkin
Day After by Emi Gayle
Ripper by Stefan Petrucha

Cover Reveals

 
Eye of the Soul by Terri Rochenski is such an intriguing cover! This novel will be released by J. Taylor Publishing on October 7th. 

 
Aubrie Dionne's Reconnaissance is awesome, and this beautiful and creepy cover fits the book perfectly. If you haven't read book one in her Paradise Reclaimed series, then what are you waiting for? Book Two will be out in the next couple months.

Book Description:

Wind tunnels, torrential rains and earthquakes tear apart Casden. The cause of the world’s imbalance is unknown, but the mounting occurrences suggest there’s little time before life ceases to exist.

Rydan Gale and Akara Nazreth are the only humans with the ability to wield magic. The tattoo on their necks and the discovery of an ancient book, dictate they are the key to the world’s survival.

But the greatest obstacle for saving mankind isn’t the bizarre creatures, extreme betrayals and magic-fearing men hunting them.

It’s that Akara doesn’t believe the world is worth saving.

About the Author:



Eventually the day came when the voices in Kelley Lynn’s head were more insistent then her engineering professor’s. So instead of turning to her Thermodynamics book, Kelley brought up a blank page on her computer screen and wrote. Somewhere along the way she became a Young Adult author.

Kelley was born and raised a Midwestern girl. She’s not afraid to sweat and fills her free time with softball, soccer and volleyball. (Though you probably don’t want her on your volleyball team.) She occasionally makes guest appearances as a female vocalist for area bands.

You can find Kelley hanging out at her blog, titled in hername, as well as the group blog she shares with her fellow critique partners, Falling forFiction. Kelley is a member of the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators.

Christine Rains said...

You've been busy again, Cherie! I love Aubrie's cover too. I'm actually reading it right now for her. Love it!

Great round up! You seem so organised. I'm looking forward to reading Kelley's book.

Lexa Cain said...

My goodness, how do you have time to read so many? And reviewing too? You're a tornado! :-)

Cathy Keaton said...

I can't read that many books in a month and I've tried, so I know. I did see on Twitter that you've started reading The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa recently, but you probably haven't finished it. Hope you like it. ;)

Aubrie said...

Thank you so much for including my book in your line up!

Rachel Morgan said...

Thanks for the round up! Congrats to Kelly, and that is a really cool cover for Aubrie!

Samantha May said...

Wow what a great list! I could not even tell you the last time I read something that was not a text book :( I'm glad it's close to summer vacation. I could use a good read!

DMS said...

I am definitely curious about Fraction of Stone. What a great cover!

I love your advice to get out and read Reconnaissance- the cover is fabulous. Thanks for sharing!

Can't wait to read Fraction of Stone! It looks fantastic.

Heather Holden said...

Wow, so many fantastic covers! I'm very impressed that you managed to read five books. I'm lucky to read just one or two some months!
