All March releases this week becuase I hate waiting forever for a book!
Just One Wish by Janette Rallison
About the Book: Seventeen-year-old Annika Truman knows about the power of positive thinking. With a little brother who has cancer, it’s all she ever hears about. And in order to help Jeremy, she will go to the ends of the earth (or at least as far as Hollywood) to help him believe he can survive his upcoming surgery.
But Annika’s plan to convince Jeremy that a magic genie will grant him any wish throws her a curveball when he unexpectedly wishes that his television idol would visit him. Annika suddenly fi nds herself in the desperate predicament of getting access to a hunky star actor and convincing him to come home with her. Piece of cake, right?
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Ok, so I'll probably be laughing and crying while reading this one, but it looks so good and Janette Rallison is awesome! Release Date: 3/5/09
The Kings Rose by Alissa M. Libby
About the Book: Life in the court of King Henry VIII is a complex game. When fifteen-year-old Catherine Howard catches the king’s eye, she quickly transforms from pawn to queen. But even luxury beyond imagination loses its luster as young Catherine finds her life—and her heart—threatened by the needs of an aging king and a family hungry for power. Will their agendas deliver Catherine to the same fate as her infamous cousin, Anne Boleyn—sacrificed at the altar of family ambition?
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: The cover alone is enough for me to want to read this one! Plus, I finally watched The Other Boleyn Girl, so my interest is piqued. Release Date: 3/19/09
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
About the Book: In Mary's world, there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village. The fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But slowly, Mary's truths are failing her. She's learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power. And, when the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. Now she must choose between her village and her future, between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded by so much death?
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: This one has a great book trailer, so if you haven't seen it, go to Carrie Ryan's site right now and watch it! And with reviews calling it "sexy and scary" and "...entry in the zombie canon stands out for how well she integrates romance with flesh-eating" how could pass this one up? Plus, there's been some great buzz around the blogging world, so I'm eager to get my hands on this one! Release Date: 3/10/09
