This is the final book in The Soul's Mark series. I have reviewed all of the books in this series and loved them all! I have a feeling that I may be a broken soul after reading this one. If you don't hear from me for a while in December, it's because of this book. I just really wish this series didn't have to end!
Ever since college student Amelia Caldwell moved to Willowberg, her life has been in turmoil. But with the evil vampire hunters no longer terrorizing the town, Willowberg is once again peaceful.

With a little help from Mother Nature and a dream for a better future, Mitchell has found himself in a predicament—after eight hundred years of being immortal, he is now a human while his soulmate is a vampire.

Now all Amelia and Mitchell have to do is hide from the world until his body can handle the change. But when Mitchell gets a cold, all hell breaks loose.

With an unexpected resistance rising, and an unexplained deadline from the spirits, Amelia realizes that this is a fight she cannot win alone. One thing is clear, though: to save Mitchell, he needs to change—again. But if he does, what chance does he have of surviving it?

    Expected Release Date: October 22, 2013

My uncle pre-ordered me the box set of the Divergent trilogy and I cannot wait for it to arrive! I just recently finished reading Divergent (book #1) and it quickly made it to the top of my favorite list! I plan on doing an entire series review, so be looking forward to that sometime around December/January.
One choice will define you.

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent

    Expected Release Date: May 2014

I want to read this series so bad that it hurts. I'm trying to wait until the last book is released so I can read them all back to back, but the wait may literally kill me. I have the first two books of this set sitting on my book shelve calling my name as we speak! I hope I'm not the only person who tries to wait until an entire series is released before reading it. =-X  

 *Cover Not Final*


I am coming.

Darkness returns to the Shadowhunter world. As their society falls apart around them, Clary, Jace, Simon and their friends must band together to fight the greatest evil the Nephilim have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Nothing in the world can defeat him — must they journey to another world to find the chance? Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last installment of the Mortal Instruments series!

 4. A Taste of Winter (Lakeside #2) by Lalia Blake
   Expected Release Date: Ending of 2013 or 2014

Currently there is no cover or summary available. When more information about A Taste of Winter is released, I will be sure to update.

I absolutely loved By the Light of the Moon (Lakeside #1) and really need book two, like yesterday. I miss Moira and Owain terribly and need them in my life! This series changed my point-of-view on steamy romance in books and made me crave it in a somewhat unhealthy way. Paranormal romance at its best!

Currently there is no cover or summary available. When more information about Forged by Coalescence is released, I will be sure to update.

I apparently have an addiction to shape-shifter books. What I enjoyed most about this series is the history of the two different shifter breeds. (Wolves and Leopards) I enjoyed the relationship between Jatred and Jasmira and cannot wait to see what their future holds! Feburary needs to hurry up and get here already!
The End.
So tell me, what are your Top 5 upcoming book releases? Leave me a comment below and let me know!

      I'm so jealous! I'm still waiting on my copy of Allegiant to arrive in the mail! How is it so far??

  2. Thank you for including Forged by Coalescence. I just got my cover from the designer. It's finished!!! You will see it very soon, Helena, but we need to wait with the official cover reveal :)
