Suddenly, when she turns fifteen, there is a visible mosaic of blue veins on her arm. She starts to crave raw food and she is having flashbacks to ancient times. Then a popular girl from her school is found dead… drained of all her blood. Schuyler doesn’t know what to think, but she wants to find out the secrets the Blue Bloods are keeping. But is she herself in danger?

of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height
and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon

when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a
wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. 
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You
heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of
enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit
up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is
by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 
If I don’t kill him first, that is.

polygamous brides to bear more children. When Rhine is kidnapped and
sold as a bride, she vows to do all she can to escape. Her husband,
Linden, is hopelessly in love with her, and Rhine can’t bring herself to
hate him as much as she’d like to. He opens her to a magical world of
wealth and illusion she never thought existed, and it almost makes it
possible to ignore the clock ticking away her short life. But Rhine
quickly learns that not everything in her new husband’s strange world is
what it seems. Her father-in-law, an eccentric doctor bent on finding
the antidote, is hoarding corpses in the basement. Her fellow sister
wives are to be trusted one day and feared the next, and Rhine is
desperate to communicate to her twin brother that she is safe and alive.
Will Rhine be able to escape–before her time runs out?

Together
with one of Linden’s servants, Gabriel, Rhine attempts to escape just
before her seventeenth birthday. But in a world that continues to spiral
into anarchy, is there any hope for freedom?

2. Mercy – Rebecca Lim

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1297927186l/8373527.jpgAn electric combination of angels, mystery and romance, MERCY is the first book in a major new paranormal series.

There’s
something very wrong with me. I can’t remember who I am or how old I
am, or even how I got here. All I know is that when I wake up, I could
be any one. It is always this way. There’s nothing I can keep with me
that will stay. It’s made me adaptable. I must always re-establish ties.
I must tread carefully or give myself away. I must survive.

Mercy
doesn’t realise it yet, but as she journeys into the darkest places of
the human soul, she discovers that she is one of the celestial host
exiled with fallen angel, Lucifer. Now she must atone for taking his
side. To find her own way back to heaven, Mercy must help a series of
humans in crisis and keep the unwary from getting caught up in the games
that angels play. Ultimately she must choose between her immortal
companion, Lucifer, and a human boy who risks everything for her love. 

3. The Shifter – Janice Hardy

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320382572l/6316125.jpgNya is an orphan
struggling for survival in a city crippled by war. She is also a
Taker—with her touch, she can heal injuries, pulling pain from another
person into her own body. But unlike her sister, Tali, and the other
Takers who become Healers’ League apprentices, Nya’s skill is flawed:
She can’t push that pain into pynvium, the enchanted metal used to store
it. All she can do is shift it into another person, a dangerous skill
that she must keep hidden from forces occupying her city. If discovered,
she’d be used as a human weapon against her own people.

Rumors
of another war make Nya’s life harder, forcing her to take desperate
risks just to find work and food. She pushes her luck too far and
exposes her secret to a pain merchant eager to use her shifting ability
for his own sinister purposes. At first Nya refuses, but when Tali and
other League Healers mysteriously disappear, she’s faced with some
difficult choices. As her father used to say, principles are a bargain
at any price; but how many will Nya have to sell to get Tali back alive?
 

4. The Fault On Our Stars – John Green

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327880382l/11870085.jpgDiagnosed with Stage IV
thyroid cancer at 13, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical
miracle shrunk the tumours in her lungs… for now.

Two years
post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too;
post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she
could live for a long time (whatever that means), Hazel lives tethered
to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant
chemical assault.

Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer
kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to
her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected
destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how
sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that
everyone leaves behind.

5. Shiver – Maggie Stiefvater

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328839272l/6068551.jpgFor years, Grace has
watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed
wolf–her wolf–is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without.
Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the
protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In
summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes
him shift back again. Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose
familiarity takes her breath away. It’s her wolf. It has to be. But as
winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human–or risk losing himself, and
Grace, forever.
 

6. Wings – Aprilynne Pike

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327983077l/5056084.jpgLaurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful–too beautiful for words.

Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.

In
this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger,
everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever. 

7. Graceling – Kristin Cashore

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1331548394l/3236307.jpgHis eyes, Katsa had
never seen such eyes. One was silver, and the other, gold. They glowed
in his sun-darkened face, uneven, and strange. She was surprised that
they hadn’t shone in the darkness of their first meeting. They didn’t
seem human….

Then he raised his eyebrows a hair, and his mouth
shifted into the hint of a smirk. He nodded at her, just barely, and it
released her from her spell.

Cocky, she thought. Cocky and
arrogant, this one, and that was all there was to make of him. Whatever
game he was playing, if he expected her to join him he would be
disappointed.

In a world where people born with an
extreme skill – called a Grace – are feared and exploited, Katsa carries
the burden of the skill even she despises: the Grace of
killing. She lives under the command of her uncle Randa, King of the
Middluns, and is expected to execute his dirty work, punishing and
torturing anyone who displeases him.

When she first meets Prince Po, who is Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.

She never expects to become Po’s friend.

She
never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace – or about a
terrible secret that lies hidden far away…a secret that could destroy
all seven kingdoms with words alone.  

8. Unearthly –

Cynthia Hand

http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1324782984l/7488244.jpgIn the beginning, there’s a boy standing in the trees . . . .
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 that 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 deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision
finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?
Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

thrives as a spy and sneak-thief among the feuding religious factions

Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in
handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting
ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasion

got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the
fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how

4. Need – Carrie Jones 
http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1312054663l/4070493.jpgPain shoots through
my head. Fireworks. Explosions. All inside my brain. The white world
goes dark and I know what’s about to happen.

Zara White
suspects there’s a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She’s also obsessed
with phobias. And it’s true, she hasn’t exactly been herself since her
stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her
grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her
stay sane…but Zara’s pretty sure her mom just can’t deal with her
right now.

She couldn’t be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker
is not a figment of Zara’s overactive imagination. In fact, he’s still
following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There’s
something not right – not human – in this sleepy Maine town, and all
signs point to Zara. 

5. Birth Marked – 

Caragh M. O’Brien
http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1317066757l/6909544.jpgIn the future, in a
world baked dry by the harsh sun, there are those who live inside the
walled Enclave and those, like sixteen-year-old Gaia Stone, who live
outside. Following in her mother’s footsteps Gaia has become a midwife,
delivering babies in the world outside the wall and handing a quota ov

always believed this is her duty, until the night her mother and father
are arrested by the very people they so loyally serve.

is forced to question everything she has been taught, but her choice is

trying.

A stunning adventure brought to life by a memorable

6. The Body Finder – Kimberly Derting
http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1296352021l/6261522.jpgViolet Ambrose is
grappling with two major issues: Jay Heaton and her morbid secret
ability. While the sixteen-year-old is confused by her new feelings for
her best friend since childhood, she is more disturbed by her “power” to
sense dead bodies—or at least those that have been murdered. Since she
was a little girl, she has felt the echoes that the dead leave behind in
the world… and the imprints that attach to their killers.

Violet
has never considered her strange talent to be a gift; it mostly just
led her to find the dead birds her cat had tired of playing with. But
now that a serial killer has begun terrorizing her small town, and the
echoes of the local girls he’s claimed haunt her daily, she realizes she
might be the only person who can stop him.

Despite his fierce
protectiveness over her, Jay reluctantly agrees to help Violet on her
quest to find the murderer—and Violet is unnerved to find herself hoping
that Jay’s intentions are much more than friendly. But even as she’s
falling intensely in love, Violet is getting closer and closer to
discovering a killer… and becoming his prey herself.
