You'll Never Guess What Just Arrived At NetGalley

Am I the only one that routinely.. okay daily checks out places like NetGalley to see if there's anything new and exciting? Well I was at work today, scrolling through my Twitter feed on my phone and saw someone mention new releases over at NetGalley. Before the page had time to even fully download, I'm typing in the url and entering in my passwords. It was about then that I screamed and scared the stuffing out of my co worker. Look at all the pretty things I found!!! (click on title)


Afterlife
Claudia Gray / YA Paranormal

Having become what they feared most, Bianca and Lucas face a terrifying new reality. They must return to Evernight Academy, Lucas as a vampire and Bianca as a wraith. But Lucas is haunted by demons, both personal and supernatural. Bianca must help him fight the evil inside him, combat the forces determined to drive them apart—and find the power to claim her destiny at last.

Angelfire
Courtney Allison Moulton / YA Paranormal
Book #1 Angelfire series
Release Date: February 15th 2011

When seventeen-year-old Ellie starts seeing reapers - monstrous creatures who devour humans and send their souls to Hell - she finds herself on the front lines of a supernatural war between archangels and the Fallen and faced with the possible destruction of her soul. A mysterious boy named Will reveals she is the reincarnation of an ancient warrior, the only one capable of wielding swords of angelfire to fight the reapers, and he is an immortal sworn to protect her in battle. Now that Ellie's powers have been awakened, a powerful reaper called Bastian has come forward to challenge her. He has employed a fierce assassin to eliminate her - an assassin who has already killed her once. While balancing her dwindling social life and reaper-hunting duties, she and Will discover Bastian is searching for a dormant creature believed to be a true soul reaper. Bastian plans to use this weapon to ignite the End of Days and to destroy Ellie's soul, ending her rebirth cycle forever. Now, she must face an army of Bastian's most frightening reapers, prevent the soul reaper from consuming her soul, and uncover the secrets of her past lives - including truths that may be too frightening to remember.



Delirium
Lauren Oliver / Young Adult
Release Date: February 1st 2011

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -the deliria- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy. But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.







Once In A Full Moon
Ellen Shreiber / YA Paranormal
Release Date: January 1st 2011

Beware of a kiss under the full moon. It will change your life forever.


Celeste Parker is used to hearing scary stories about werewolves—Legend’s Run is famous for them. But when, after an unnerving visit with a psychic, she encounters a pack of wolves and gorgeous, enigmatic Brandon, she must discover whether his transformation is more than legend or just a trick of the shadows in the moonlight. Brandon may be Celeste’s hero, or he may be the most dangerous creature she could encounter in the woods of Legend’s Run. The bestselling Vampire Kisses author, Ellen Schreiber, weaves together psychic predictions, generations-old secrets, a town divided, and the possibility of falling in love with a hot and heroic werewolf—the perfect formula for what happens...once in a full moon.




Unearthly
Cynthia Hand / YA Paranormal
Release Date: January 4th 2011

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what it is, though, isn't easy. Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place--and out of place, at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side. As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make--between honesty and deciet, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?



Can you not see why I'm so excited?? Here it is October 5th and I have to keep checking the calendar - nope not my birthday... *recheck* nope not Christmas... *recheck* nope not April's Fool.  These are too good to pass up so head on over and request yourself a copy. Enjoy!



For those not familiar with NetGalley, it's a website that acts as a go between between you and publishers. Once you register and follow the instructions, you're able to look through a variety of books under different genres. If you see something you like, click on the request button and leave the rest up to NetGalley. They send that request to the appropriate publisher and then email you with the response. All galleys (at least that I've received) are in ebook form and you'll need to download Adobe Digital Editions but the site gives you all the info.
