S.O.S Book of the Week

The S.O.S Book of the Week  is where I'll let you in on what new releases I'm looking forward to!  S.O.S comes from the term 'Strict on Sale'.  It's bookseller speak for a title that you can't sell before a specific date-- think Harry Potter.  While the books I have here may not be S.O.S titles specifically, they are all new!

The S.O.S. Book of the Week is:

August 31st saw the release of 'The Haunted' by Jessica Verday, sequel to last years supernatural romance 'The Hollow'. You may remember my review of that here. The overall storyline of the series is loosely based on 'The Headless Horseman' or at least takes place in Sleepy Hollow and includes some dead folks.

Here's a blurb from Goodreads:
"After a summer spent reclaiming her sanity and trying to forget the boy she fell in love with by the bridge where her best friend drowned - the boy who must not exist, cannot exist, because she knows that he is dead - Abbey returns to Sleepy Hollow, determined to leave the ghosts of her past behind. She throws herself into schoolwork, perfume-making and her friendship with Ben, her cute and funny lab partner, who just might be able to help her get over Caspian once and for all. 
But Abbey is never going to truly be able to move on from Caspian and Caspian has no choice but to return to her side: for Caspian is a Shade and Abbey is his destiny. The two are tied not only to each other, but also to the town of Sleepy Hollow and the famous legend that binds their fates - a legend whose true ending and dark truths they are only just beginning to guess..."
I'm hoping this sequel starts off a little quicker than the last and am looking forward to seeing more of Caspian.  'The Haunted' is definitely going on my hold list at the library!

 And that's it for this weeks S.O.S Book of the Week!  Check back next week for my next S.O.S title!
