Pre-Pub Book Buzz: Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

Short and sweet today. There are some fantastic books on the horizon, but I just realized that Andrea Cremer's newest is almost here!

Last year, Nightshade blew me away. It was completely unexpected -- I had no idea it was going to be so great when I started it, nor did I have any idea what to expect in terms of the plot.

Now, it's almost time for the sequel to hit shelves. Wolfsbane is due out Jul 26 and I can't wait! This is a teen series, werewolves, but not the way you'd expect. I've not seen much on Wolfsbane just yet. To be honest, I was a little surprised it was already due out. Here's the little bit of description I've been able to find via the publisher and bookstore sites:

When Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemies, she’s certain her days are numbered. But then the Searchers make her an offer—one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the pack—and the man—she left behind. Is Ren worth the price of her freedom? And will Shay stand by her side no matter what? Now in control of her own destiny, Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials true love can endure and still survive.

So the Breathless Reads are a year old now! That means that Ally Condie and Brenna Yovanoff have new books due out as well (November 1 and 15, respectively). I'm really, really enjoying the new trends in teen fiction, even if I only get to read a few of the titles each year. I know there are some big talked about books coming out and I hope I'll have chance to get to some of them (some are in the TBR already - Cailtin Kittredge's The Iron Thorn). Those that I can't get to always end up on the present list to buy for the JJs, though.

Anyway, Happy Saturday to you all. Hope it's a great one!
