NAL Penguin
Synopsis(from Goodreads): 
Book 8 of the Chicagoland Vampires series by Chloe Neill.

Welcome back to Chicago: Famous for sports, pizza, and vampires. At the tender age of twenty-eight, Merit became a sword-wielding vampire. Since then, she’s become the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, seen her Master fall and rise, and saved her best friend from self destruction. But this might be her toughest fight yet..
I have not yet had the chance to read House Rules but I'm so excited about it and I absolutely can't wait. I love each book in the series and I can't wait to read HR and then when this one comes out I'm definitely reading it too.

You can purchase the book from Amazon:

or
from the Book Depository

YA Pick:

3:59 by Gretchen McNeil
Expected publication: September 17th 2013
Balzer & Bray



Synopsis(from Goodreads): 
Josie Byrne's life is spiraling out of control. Her parents are divorcing, her boyfriend Nick has grown distant, and her physics teacher has it in for her. When she's betrayed by the two people she trusts most, Josie thinks things can't get worse.

Until she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo. Every night at the same time—3:59 a.m.

Jo's life is everything Josie wants: she's popular, her parents are happily married, and Nick adores her. It all seems real, but they're just dreams, right? Josie thinks so, until she wakes one night to a shadowy image of herself in the bedroom mirror – Jo.

Josie and Jo realize that they are doppelgängers living in parallel universes that overlap every twelve hours at exactly 3:59. Fascinated by Jo's perfect world, Josie jumps at the chance to jump through the portal and switch places for a day.

But Jo’s world is far from perfect. Not only is Nick not Jo's boyfriend, he hates her. Jo's mom is missing, possibly insane. And at night, shadowy creatures feed on human flesh.

By the end of the day, Josie is desperate to return to her own life. But there’s a problem: Jo has sealed the portal, trapping Josie in this dangerous world. Can she figure out a way home before it’s too late?

From master of suspense Gretchen McNeil comes a riveting and deliciously eerie story about the lives we wish we had – and how they just might kill you.
I've had my eye on this one for some time now and I'd love to read it when it comes out. Sadly, I don't know when that will be in my country but I'm still very excited about it.
I saw this one last week and I immediately added it on my to-read list. The summary sounds awesome and I'm really excited.

  1. I'm in the middle of book three for the Chicagoland Vampire series and I am absolutely loving all of them! They're so good (and the major event in book 4/5 was spoiled for me so I'm mentally prepared for what awaits) and addictive!
