Cover Reveal: The Transfer: A Divergent Story (Divergent 0.1) by Veronica Roth

I am really excited to read these short stories, especially because they are in Four's P.O.V! I loved Divergent and Insurgent, and can't wait to get my hands on Allegiant as well. Isn't the cover neat looking though?

Cover Reveal: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me #3)

I must say that I absolutely love all the covers in this trilogy, they're gorgeous!

Waiting on Wednesday #2

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine, that highlights upcoming releases we're anticipating.

So, today is Wednesday which means I get to share with all of you what books I'm looking forward to reading! Yayy! First of all a shout out to Infinityglass by Myra McEntire, happy release day!

The books on my mind this week are The Chaos of Stars and All Our Yesterdays. I wouldn't have known about these books if it weren't for the book bloggers on Twitter, thanks guys!

Author: Kiersten White
Series: None
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Mythology
Release Date: September 10, 2013
Summary From Goodreads:
Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up.
Of course, as the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that pretty much comes with the territory. She’s also stuck with parents who barely notice her, and a house full of relatives who can’t be bothered to remember her name. After all, they are going to be around forever—and she’s a mere mortal.
Isadora’s sick of living a life where she’s only worthy of a passing glance, and when she has the chance to move to San Diego with her brother, she jumps on it. But Isadora’s quickly finding that a “normal” life comes with plenty of its own epic complications—and that there’s no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family. Much as she wants to leave her past behind, she can’t shake the ominous dreams that foretell destruction for her entire family. When it turns out there may be truth in her nightmares, Isadora has to decide whether she can abandon her divine heritage after all.

I loved Kiersten White's Paranormalcy series, so I'm super excited for this one and Mind Games. I'm a huge fan of mythology as well, so this one is definitely high up on my most anticipated reads list.

Author: Cristin Terrill
Series: All Our Yesterdays Duology
Genre: YA, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Romance
Release Date: September 3, 2013
Summary From Goodreads:
"You have to kill him." Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.
Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.
Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was.

All Our Yesterdays just looks amazing. A Sci-Fi fantasy romance? YES PLEASE.
