S.O.S Book of the Week

The S.O.S Book of the Week is where I 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:
Taken from Goodreads, "When Pierce first sees him, she thinks he is a murderer. She's right about one thing -- he does take lives. But not in the way she ever imagined. Pierce is drawn to the dark stranger even as she tries to uncover the mystery surrounding the tragic death of someone close to her. As she gets closer to the truth -- and the stranger -- unexpected secrets are revealed, even in her own heart."

I haven't read a new Meg Cabot book in a few years. To be honest, I kind of stopped because of a tirade she went and posted on her blog about being sick of people telling her to read Twilight. It just came off as really unprofessional to me and I decided it was probably best to find another author. (Plus, I can't recall anything since Avalon High that I wanted to read by her!)

Hitting store shelves April 2011, 'Abandon' might be decent reading. It's always a hit or miss with me when it comes to Meg Cabot books. I loved Avalon High, but can't read The Princess Diaries. This is definitely a 'borrow from the library' title.

Are you looking forward to this title? If not, what are you looking forward to?

I'm looking forward to Abandon too. Avalon High was good, and the Princess Diaries is kind of my guilty pleasure series.

I actually haven't read any of her books! I've seen a few at the library like um what was it, ah yes Runaway (I'm not sure if that's it) but I'll have to look into this one! Thanks for the heads up!
