Beautiful Darkness - Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
Published by Penguin
Australian Release - 10/12/2010
Lena is a Caster and her family is locked in a supernatural civil war: full of darkness and demons. On her sixteenth birthday Lena made a terrifying choice, which now haunts her day and night.
And as her seventeenth birthday approaches Lena and Ethan face even greater danger. A Caster and a Mortal can never truly be together.
Every kiss is a curse.
Ethan's next heartbeat could be his last.
It is their curse now . . .
I really enjoyed Beautiful Creatures so can't wait to read more about Lena and Ethan (and pretty much the entire township of Gaitlin who are so well-written). Also, I just bought Beautiful Creatures for my friend's birthday, so we'll probably read the sequel at the same time, which will be fun.
You - Charles Benoit

Australian Release 1/10/10
This wasn't the way it was supposed to go.
You're just a typical fifteen-year-old sophomore, an average guy named Kyle Chase. This can't be happening to you. But then, how do you explain all the blood? How do you explain how you got here in the first place? There had to have been signs, had to have been some clues it was coming. Did you miss them, or ignore them? Maybe if you can figure out where it all went wrong, you can still make it right. Or is it already too late? Think fast, Kyle. Time's running out. How did this happen?
You is the riveting story of fifteen-year-old Kyle and the small choices he does and doesn't make that lead to his own destruction.
You can't ignore the fact that You has a great hook. The cover is a bit Eclipse-ish but the premise has really intrigued me and am looking forward to checking out this psychological YA drama (written entirely in second person).
Which titles are you waiting for this week?
