Quick Teaser:

A girl named Rose is riding her new bike near her home in Deadwood, South Dakota, when she falls through the earth. She wakes up at the bottom of a square hole, its walls glowing with intricate carvings. But the firemen who come to save her peer down upon something even stranger: a little girl in the palm of a giant metal hand. (…)

This one sounds so good!! It reminds me a bit of Roald Dahl’s BFG just from the teaser, which equals fantastic. The publication date is April 26, 2016. YAY!!!

Check out Goodreads for the full teaser.

 

companytownQuick Teaser:

Meet Hwa. One of the few in her community to forego bio-engineered enhancements, she’s the last truly organic person left on the rig. But she’s an expert in the arts of self-defense, and she’s been charged with training the Family’s youngest, who has been receiving death threats – seemingly from another timeline. (…)

Publication date for this one is May 17, 2016. Lots of potential here.

 

You get the full teaser for this one:

No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwyla likes it that way.

Ever since she and her brother were abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman sultan’s courts, Lada has known that ruthlessness is the key to survival. For the lineage that makes her and her brother special also makes them targets.

Lada hones her skills as a warrior as she nurtures plans to wreak revenge on the empire that holds her captive. Then she and Radu meet the sultan’s son, Mehmed, and everything changes. Now Mehmed unwittingly stands between Lada and Radu as they transform from siblings to rivals, and the ties of love and loyalty that bind them together are stretched to breaking point.

The first of an epic new trilogy starring the ultimate anti-princess who does not have a gentle heart. Lada knows how to wield a sword, and she’ll stop at nothing to keep herself and her brother alive.

I am so jazzed about this one!! I first heard about it at when a publisher (I think Random House??) came to Educators Night at my local bookstore. I immediately put it at the tippy-top of my TBR when the publisher said it was a female Dracula… I’M IN!! Seriously, cannot wait. Publication date is July 7, 2016.

hpLast but incredibly NOT least:

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes darkness comes from unexpected places.

I reserved my copy ages ago. PLEASE hurry up, summer!! Publication date is July 31, 2016. Click here for the Goodreads page.

What books are at the top of your CAN’T WAIT list??
