New Releases - JULY 2014

Wow, June has gone by so fast and now I'm Julying. 
lets ignore that joke and carry on with the hottest new releases of July 2014...

18298225ON THE FENCE 

Author: Kasie West 
Release Date: July 1st 2014.
Format: Paper back.  

She's a tomboy. He's the boy next door…

Charlie Reynolds can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn't know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at a chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world. To cope with the stress of her new reality, Charlie takes to spending nights chatting with her neighbor Braden through the fence between their yards. As she grows to depend on their nightly Fence Chats, she realizes she's got a bigger problem than speeding tickets-she's falling for Braden. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.


We are again starting the month with another very cliché storyline, where a girl fall sin love with a guy and they become undoubtedly in love forever and ever and they manage to stay together throughout everything, yada yada yada... 
I love cliché books, you have no idea. So for me, this is a must read because I am very curious to see if it is what I think it is. 


Author: Emily Lloyd -Jones
Release Date: July 15th 2014
Format: Hard cover.  

When the MK virus swept across the planet, a vaccine was created to stop the epidemic, but it came with some unexpected side effects. A small percentage of the population developed superhero-like powers. Seventeen-year-old Ciere Giba has the handy ability to change her appearance at will. She's what's known as an illusionist...She's also a thief.

After a robbery goes awry, Ciere must team up with a group of fellow super-powered criminals on another job that most would consider too reckless. The formula for the vaccine that gave them their abilities was supposedly destroyed years ago. But what if it wasn't?

The lines between good and bad, us and them, and freedom and entrapment are blurred as Ciere and the rest of her crew become embroiled in a deadly race against the government that could cost them their lives. 


The cover is awesome, for some reason even though I haven't read the book I think it fits really well to the blurb. I'm not entirely sure whether I would read this or not, if you're a fan of action it seems to be a must read. 


Author: Adi Alsaid 
Release Date: July 29th 2014
Format: Hard Cover 

Five strangers. Countless adventures.One epic way to get lost. 

Four teens across the country have only one thing in common: a girl named LEILA. She crashes into their lives in her absurdly red car at the moment they need someone the most. 

There's HUDSON, a small-town mechanic who is willing to throw away his dreams for true love. And BREE, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. ELLIOT believes in happy endings…until his own life goes off-script. And SONIA worries that when she lost her boyfriend, she also lost the ability to love. 

Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. And when Leila leaves them, their lives are forever changed. But it is during Leila's own 4,268-mile journey that she discovers the most important truth— sometimes, what you need most is right where you started. And maybe the only way to find what you're looking for is to get lost along the way.


This sounds very exciting and I think if I was to read this book I would enjoy it a lot. It sounds gripping. I really like the cover, I think it reflects the storyline very well. 



Author: Katherine Howe
Release Date: July 1st 2014
Format: Hard back 

It’s senior year at St. Joan’s Academy, and school is a pressure cooker. College applications, the battle for valedictorian, deciphering boys’ texts: Through it all, Colleen Rowley and her friends are expected to keep it together. Until they can’t.

First it’s the school’s queen bee, Clara Rutherford, who suddenly falls into uncontrollable tics in the middle of class. Her mystery illness quickly spreads to her closest clique of friends, then more students and symptoms follow: seizures, hair loss, violent coughing fits. St. Joan’s buzzes with rumor; rumour blossoms into full-blown panic.

Soon the media descends on Danvers, Massachusetts, as everyone scrambles to find something, or someone, to blame. Pollution? Stress? Or are the girls faking? Only Colleen—who’s been reading The Crucible for extra credit—comes to realize what nobody else has: Danvers was once Salem Village, where another group of girls suffered from a similarly bizarre epidemic three centuries ago . . .

Inspired by true events—from seventeenth-century colonial life to the halls of a modern-day high school—Conversion casts a spell. With her signature wit and passion, New York Times bestselling author Katherine Howe delivers an exciting and suspenseful novel, a chilling mystery that raises the question, what’s really happening to the girls at St. Joan’s. 


I think this book has an amazing storyline, after reading the first line of the blurb I thought it was going to be another teen high school book, but to my surprise its not. I like the fact that this illness is somewhat eradicating the caste system within the school, a must read.

Well I hope you all enjoyed July's new releases!
