I've decided that Tuesday is oficially a SHINEEE day, where i share a post with some awesome covers, upcoming books, and other awesome tidbits you may not know :)
Before i start, you MUST see THIS POST of Kiersten White's, it is very informative for this who do aspire to be published, and hilarious for those who don't.
Okay, now to business. I thought i'd show you a book i found on Goodreads that not many people now about but still sounds AMAZEBALLS. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to....
Cinder by Marissa Meyer - January 3rd 2012 by Feiwel & FriendsHumans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .
Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.
In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.
Gorgeous, right? This is definitely one of my favourite upcoming reads for 2012, which right now seems a million miles away :(
Also, major congrats goes to Margeret Stohl and Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures) who have both sold the rights for idependents projects. Good work, ladies!
But the biggest new book announcement goes to Mary Lindsey, author of the upcoming Shattered Souls, who has sold another book entitled Annabel.
