To Be Read Thursday

Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive. Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own. As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner. (taken from Goodreads)
I am really excited for this book. I've read several reviews that said it was great. And that it lived up to the first book. (which happened to be great too :D) There are new characters that I am excited to be meeting and there are new developments in the plot...a whole new main character. Apparently a really great book will soon be in my hands! (number #1 holds wise) And the cover is so mysterious. I really like the pattern of showing just a part of the body. With Cinder, shoe+foot. This one arm+cloak+hair. and the font is so great :) Seriously dying for this one to get to me soon! It was released the fifth.

Breaking Point (Article 5, #2)After faking their deaths to escape from prison, Ember Miller and Chase Jennings have only one goal: to lay low until the Federal Bureau of Reformation forgets they ever existed.
Near-celebrities now for the increasingly sensationalized tales of their struggles with the government, Ember and Chase are recognized and taken in by the Resistance—an underground organization working to systematically take down the government. At headquarters, all eyes are on the sniper, an anonymous assassin taking out FBR soldiers one by one. Rumors are flying about the sniper’s true identity, and Ember and Chase welcome the diversion…. Until the government posts its most-wanted list, and their number one suspect is Ember herself. Orders are shoot to kill, and soldiers are cleared to fire on suspicion alone. Suddenly Ember can’t even step onto the street without fear of being recognized, and “laying low” is a joke. Even members of the Resistance are starting to look at her sideways. With Chase urging her to run, Ember must decide: Go into hiding…or fight back? (taken from Goodreads)
I liked the first book okay. It's an exciting world to read about. And the covers are just so stinkin' cool! I am #1 for this one and it releases the 12th. I have gotten the first book, Aritcle 5, again to reread so I'll know what is going on. From some of the reviews I've read it's either good or great :) Can't wait to see what lies ahead in the story :)

There’s an island off the coast of Maine that’s not on any modern map.
Shrouded in mist and protected by a deadly reef, Trespass Island is home to a community of people who guard the island and its secrets from outsiders. Seventeen-year-old Delia grew up in Kansas, but has come here in search of her family and answers to her questions: Why didn’t her mother ever talk about Trespass Island? Why did she fear the open water? But Delia’s not welcome and soon finds herself enmeshed in a frightening and supernatural world where ancient Greek symbols adorn the buildings and secret ceremonies take place on the beach at night. Sean Gunn, a handsome young lobsterman, befriends Delia and seems willing to risk his life to protect her. But it’s Jax, the coldly elusive young man she meets at the water’s edge, who finally makes Delia understand the real dangers of life on the island. Delia is going to have to fight to survive. Because there are monsters here. And no one ever leaves Trespass alive. (taken from Goodreads)
I haven't seen any reviews or anything really about this book yet. I saw it, read the description and got interested. So hopefully it will turn out good :) This book releases the 12th also.
Love, Sierra
