Welcome to the February YA Buzz
Dearest Booktopians,

My name is Sarah and I am very excited to be seizing control of the YA Buzz. Without wanting to sound like too much of a comic book villain, "It's mine! All mine! The YA Buzz is mine, I tell you! Mwah ha ha!"

Okay, with that out the way, let's examine why Young Adult Fiction is superior to all other kinds of Fiction (a fact of which many people are sadly unaware). Young Adult Fiction crosses all genres from Fantasy and Science Fiction through to Historical and Contemporary Realism. It is an exciting and often groundbreaking genre, sort of like the hipper, trendsetting younger sibling of all the other genres.

(If this newsletter is cut off in your email program, or you cannot see the right-hand side with the index, please be sure to click on the link at the top of this email to view it online.)

Most of the highest grossing movies of the last decade have been based on YA books. Why? Because YA Fiction is where the magic happens. And the best thing about YA Fiction? It's about young adults, but not necessarily restricted to YA readers. If we have learned anything from Harry Potter (besides how to correctly pronounce the name "Hermione"), it's that anyone who has ever been young can appreciate YA Fiction. This is especially true for grown ups, like myself, who happen to be extraordinarily immature... erm... I mean "young at heart".

February is an extra exciting month for YA Fiction. For one thing, we have the next installment in the popular Bloodlines series from Richelle Mead. We're also getting the highly anticipated sequel to Pure by Julianna Baggot as well as a whole host of other great new releases.

So for those of you who are young in years, as well as those of you with youthful spirits, welcome to February in YA Fiction!

What I've just readThe Fault in Our Stars (because John Green makes my heart sing)

What I'm reading now - Requiem (soooooo good! The ever-so-awesome conclusion to the Delirium Trilogy.)

What I'll be reading next - Warm Bodies (because have you seen the trailer for the upcoming movie? If not, sort yourself out here)


Kind regards,

BOOK OF THE MONTH
Click here for details or to order

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives.

In the aftermath of a forbidden moment that rocked Sydney to her core, she struggles to draw the line between her Alchemist teachings and what her heart is urging her to do. Then she finally tracks down the elusive, enigmatic Marcus Finch - a former Alchemist who the organisation denies exists, and who lives in shadows, on the run. With Marcus's help, Sydney realises that the group she's been loyal to her whole life has been hiding the truth from her. Is it possible that her golden lily tattoo might have more power over her than she thinks?

As she struggles to come to terms with what that might mean, Sydney is compelled to use her growing magical powers to track down an evil magic user who is targeting powerful young witches. Using magic goes against everything she always thought she believed, but she realises that her only hope is to embrace her special blood - or else she might be next.

Forging her own way is harder than Sydney ever dreamed. Maybe by turning off her brain - and following her heart - she'll be able to finally figure out where she belongs.

The hotly anticipated third installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series.

PARANORMAL
Vampires, demons and... ballerinas? It might seem like one of these things is not like the others, but anyone who has seen Black Swan can attest to the fact that sometimes ballerinas can be really, really scary. Yelena Black's Dance of Shadows certainly delivers its fair share of paranormal thrills. And with new releases from popular authors Sherrilyn Kenyon and Cynthia Hand, February is shaping up  to be a great month for Paranormal YA.

Click here for details or to order Dark forces are unleashed by the intense passion of one young ballet dancer in a dark, seductive and highly dramatic thriller.

Dancing with someone is an act of trust. Elegant and intimate; you're close enough to kiss, close enough to feel your partner's heartbeat. But for Vanessa, dance is deadly - and she must be very careful who she trusts... Vanessa Adler isn't so sure she really belongs at the School of American Ballet. But dance runs in her family.

It's been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. Her grandmother and mother were prima ballerinas, and her older sister Margaret was, too. That is, until Margaret mysteriously disappeared from school three years ago. Vanessa is heir to the family's gift and the only person who can fulfil her sister's destiny. She has no choice. But she never could have guessed how dangerous the school is. The infamous choreographer, Josef, isn't just ruthless with his pupils, he guards a sinister secret, one in which the school's dancers - prized for their beauty, grace, and disciplin - become pawns in a world of darkness.

When Josef asks Vanessa to dance the lead in the Firebird, she has little idea of the danger that lies ahead-and the burning forces about to be unleashed...

The world has fallen in love with Nick Gautier and the Dark-Hunters. Now Nick's saga continues in the next eagerly anticipated volume. . .

Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That's the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn't the average teenager. He's a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him. He's learned to raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so hard?

But driving isn't the primary skill he has to master. Survival is. And in order to survive, his next lesson makes all the others pale in comparison. He is on the brink of becoming either the greatest hero mankind has ever known - or he'll be the one who ends the world. With enemies new and old gathering forces, he will have to call on every part of himself to fight or he'll lose everyone he cares about. Even himself.

And part of that destiny is being with Christian, even if her heart still aches for Tucker. When one of the people Clara trusts most betrays her, she finds herself fighting for her life-and the safety of the ones she loves.

In the electrifying conclusion to the Unearthly series Clara will gain new insight into the true meaning of her purpose, and decide once and for all whether she should be with Christian or Tucker.

That night, Nikki's boyfriend, Jack, made the ultimate sacrifice and took her place in the Everneath for eternity - a debt that should have been hers.

Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his Queen - and the one person least likely to help. But it seems Nikki has touched his heart, and surprisingly, Cole agrees to help in the only way he can - by taking Nikki to the Everneath himself.

As they descend into the heart of the Everneath Nikki and Cole discover that their journey will be more difficult than they'd anticipated, and more deadly. Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack - even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own...

DYSTOPIAN AND SCIENCE FICTION
Come explore a range of horrifying future worlds full of zombies, monsters and mutants with psychic powers. Hooray!

After the success of Pure last year, there will be many people anxiously waiting for a return to Julianna Baggot's eerily creepy vision of the future in Fuse. The Prey continues Andrew Fukuda's electrifying vampire dystopian series that began last year with The Hunt. And, as previously mentioned, Isaac Marion's Warm Bodies looks totally amazing and I can't wait to read it/see the movie.

FUSE by Julianna Baggott
When the end came, the world was divided. Those considered perfect, the Pure, sheltered inside the controlled Dome. Outside, the Wretches struggled in a destroyed world, crippled by the fusings that branded them after the apocalypse that changed everything.

Partridge, a Pure, has left the safety of the Dome in search of the truth. Pressia, a Wretch, is desperate to decode the secret that will cure her people of their fusings forever. Together, they must seek out the answers that will save humankind, and prevent the world's annihilation.

But the betrayal of Partridge's departure has not been forgotten. As the Dome unleashes horrifying vengeance upon the Wretches in an attempt to get Partridge back, Partridge has no choice but to return to face the darkness that lies there, even as Pressia travels to the very ends of the world to continue their search. Theirs is a struggle against a formidable foe, and it is a fight that will push them over boundaries of land and of sea, of heart and of mind. They can only hope for success because failure is unimaginable...

WARM BODIES by Isaac Marion

THE PREY by Andrew Fukuda
Click here for details or to order
'R' is having a no-life crisis--he is a zombie. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he is a little different from his fellow Dead. He may occasionally eat people, but he'd rather be riding abandoned airport escalators, listening to Sinatra in the cozy 747 he calls home, or collecting souvenirs from the ruins of civilization.

And then he meets a girl.

First as his captive, then his reluctant house guest, Julie is a blast of living color in R's gray landscape, and something inside him begins to bloom. He doesn't want to eat this girl--although she looks delicious--he wants to protect her. But their unlikely bond will cause ripples they can't imagine, and their hopeless world won't change without a fight.

Romeo and Juliet with zombies - a starry-eyed, sweetly comic story about the humanising power of love, even in the darkest of circumstances.

Don't miss the electrifying second book in the must-read trilogy of the year!

With death only a heartbeat away, Gene and the remaining humans must find a way to survive long enough to escape the hungry predators chasing them through the night. But they're not the only things following Gene. He's haunted by Ashley June who he left behind, and his burgeoning feelings for Sissy, the human girl at his side.

Their escape takes them to a refuge of humans living high in the mountains. Gene and his friends think they're finally safe, but not everything here is as it seems. And before long, Gene must ask himself if the new world they've entered is just as evil as the one they left behind. As their enemies close in on them and push Gene and Sissy closer, one thing becomes painfully clear: all they have is each other...if they can stay alive.

NOT ANOTHER TEEN MOVIE BOOK
If there's one thing I've learned from every teen movie ever made, it's that High School is a very important rite of passage for young adults, one full of opportunities for emotional growth and spiritual enlightenment. Also, jocks are dumb, cheerleaders are mean, geeks wear glasses and Prom is a magical night of romance and synchronised dancing.

So whether you're looking for a fix of High School hijinks, or just wanting some juicy YA chick lit to tide you over till the next episodes of The Carrie Diaries... check out these fun new reads.
MY LIFE UNDECIDED by Jessica Brody
Click here for details or to order PLEASE READ THIS! MY LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!

Okay, maybe that was a bit melodramatic, but I'm sorry, I'm feeling a bit melodramatic at the moment.

Here's the deal. My name is Brooklyn Pierce, I'm fifteen years old, and I am decisionally challenged. Seriously, I can't remember the last good decision I made. I can remember plenty of crappy ones though. Including that party I threw when my parents were out of town that accidentally burned down a model home. Yeah, not my finest moment, for sure.

But see, that's why I started a blog. To enlist readers to make my decisions for me. That's right. I gave up. Threw in the towel. I let someone else decide which book I read for English. And whether or not I accepted an invitation to join the debate team from that cute-in-a-dorky-sort-of-way guy who gave me the Heimlich maneuver in the cafeteria. (Note to self: chew the melon before swallowing it.) I even let them decide who I dated!

Well, it turns out there are some things in life you simply can't choose or have chosen for you-like who you fall in love with. And now everything's more screwed up than ever.

PERFECT SCOUNDRELS

Dorks, Dweebs, Debutantes, and Jocks-Where would you fit in?   

Being the new girl is tough-just ask sixteen-year-old Rio Jones. A New York transplant, Rio has no clue how she's going to fit in at her fancy new private school in Southern California. Plus, being late, overdressed, and named after a Duran Duran song doesn't make the first day any easier for her.   

Then Rio meets Kristi. Beautiful, rich, and a cheerleader, Kristi is the queen bee of Newport Beach. And Kristi isn't friends with just anyone, so Rio is thrilled when she's invited to be part of the most exclusive, popular clique. Of course, like any club, Kristi and her friends have rules: Always smile (even if you don't mean it), always dress cute (and never repeat outfits), and always flirt (but only with jocks, preps, and rich college guys).

At first Rio is having a great time, but as she becomes more immersed in this jet-set crowd, she figures out there is one last rule that her new friends forgot to mention: Don't cross Kristi . . .

Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives: Kat comes from a long, proud line of loveable criminal masterminds, while Hale is the scion of one of the most seemingly perfect dynasties in the world. If their families have one thing in common, it's that they both know how to stay under the radar while getting-or stealing-whatever they want.

No matter the risk, the Bishops can always be counted on, but in Hale's family, all bets are off when money is on the line. When Hale unexpectedly inherits his grandmother's billion dollar corporation, he quickly learns that there's no place for Kat and their old heists in his new role. But Kat won't let him go that easily, especially after she gets tipped off that his grandmother's will might have been altered in an elaborate con to steal the company's fortune. So instead of being the heir-this time, Hale might be the mark.

Forced to keep a level head as she and her crew fight for one of their own, Kat comes up with an ambitious and far-reaching plan that only the Bishop family would dare attempt. To pull it off, Kat is prepared to do the impossible, but first, she has to decide if she's willing to save her boyfriend's company if it means losing the boy.

STEAMPUNK
Steampunk meets Manga this month with two exciting new graphic novels from Cassandra Clare and Gail Carriger.

Speaking of Gail Carriger, fans of the Soulless series will be excited to get their hands on the first book of her new YA series. Etiquette and Espionage is set in the same world as the Soulless books and looks like a gem of Paranormal Steampunk meets Fantasy of Manners, with a side order of girls-training-to-be-kickass-spies.
In other words, it looks awesome.

ETIQUETTE AND ESPIONAGE by Gail Carriger
Click here for details or to order It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to finishing school.

Sophronia is a great trial to her poor mother. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper manners-and the family can only hope that company never sees her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. So she enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But Sophronia soon realizes the school is not quite what her mother might have hoped. At Mademoiselle Geraldine's young ladies learn to finish. . . everything. Certainly, they learn the fine arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but they also learn to deal out death, diversion, and espionage - in the politest possible ways, of course. Sophronia and her friends are in for a rousing first year's education.

Gail Carriger's New York Times bestselling tale of vampires, werewolves and parasols comes to life in this steampunk-fueled manga adaptation!

Alexia Maccon, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears; leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria.

But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. So even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can.

She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.

THRILLER
For anyone in need of some intense suspense, look no further. We have three nail-biting psychological thrillers this month. 

Undone looks set to be an epic tale of revenge in the vein of The Count of Monte Christo... except set in High School. Intricately planned vengeance vendettas + High School = I'm sold.

Night School
is being touted as "The Secret History for teens", which is high praise indeed and definitely has me interested.

And finally, Hysteria is about a girl who stabs her boyfriend to death and is consequently sent away.... to boarding school? Okay, I'm intrigued by this. Boarding school seems like a pretty lenient punishment for murder, but I guess if we want to know the details we'll have to get reading... 

UNDONE by Cat Clarke

But what if Kai was keeping secrets from Jem? Could her quest for revenge be directed at the wrong people? And can Jem find out what really happened before someone else gets hurt? .

Secret wishes, hidden heartaches and painful truths. Everyone has them - but some secrets are harder to hide.

We usually tell our best friends everything. Our crushes, our embarrassing stories, our secrets - but sometimes there are truths so deep and dark that we can't tell anyone. Not our parents, not our sisters... not even our best friends. Some secrets are so unspeakable that we keep them safely locked away so no one will ever discover them.

But what happens when they become more than you can handle alone? In these two magnificent novels, two girls can't tell anyone about the terrible burdens they carry. But as they're about to learn, it's not our secrets that matter most - but those who still love us once they learn the truth.
