Try Not to BreatheTry Not to Breathe
Jennifer Hubbard
Due Date: January 19, 2012
Learning to live is more than just choosing not to die, as sixteen-year-old Ryan discovers in the year following his suicide attempt. Despite his mother’s anxious hovering and the rumors at school, he’s trying to forget the darkness from which he has escaped. But it doesn’t help that he’s still hiding guilty secrets, or that he longs for a girl who may not return his feelings. Then he befriends Nicki, who is using psychics to seek contact with her dead father. This unlikely friendship thaws Ryan to the point where he can face the worst in himself. He and Nicki confide in one another the things they never thought they’d tell anyone—but their confessions are trickier than they seem, and the fallout tests the bound of friendship and forgiveness.
I love the cover. That's what first got me. Then I read the summary and I was in L-O-V-E! The concept kinda reminds me of If I Stay by Gayle Forman, a five star book. :D

Small Blue ThingSmall Blue Thing
S.C. Ransom
Due Date: Jaunary 13, 2012
Celebrating the end of exams with best friend Grace, 17 year-old Alex rescues a swan caught on a wire in the Thames mud and finds an extraordinary bracelet. Through its disturbing and compelling powers, she finds Callum, a soul locked in a half-life of sadness and mystery following a terrible accident, and his persuasive and sinister sister, Catherine. As Alex and Callum grow closer despite the enormous obstacles to their love, the dangers mount until Alex must risk everything to save Grace and Callum must risk everything to save Alex.

Besides the pretty braclet on the front, I like the idea of Alex finding a person in the gem. I just think this story is going to be a hit. And I will admit, I had to reread the summary a few times. I thought Alex was a boy at first. :D


The Curse GirlThe Curse Girl
Kate Ellsion
Came Out in: May 13, 2011
When her father tries to steal magic from the cursed mansion outside her town, seventeen-year-old Bee is the one who becomes a prisoner of the “beast” who lives there. But the so-called monster, Will, isn't anything like she expected. He's the same age as she is, he doesn't have claws or fangs ... and contrary to the local legend, he's really, really handsome. Well, maybe the whole "beast" thing is a metaphor, because he's a total jerk. Bee's only goal is to escape, but there are some major complications--like the fact that she has to break Will's curse first. The witch who cursed Will left him a riddle to solve and an hourglass to track the time. And although she'd rather eat dirt than help Will, Bee has to work with him to figure out the riddle, or she's going to remain a prisoner forever. As time goes on, Bee discovers there is more to Will than first meets the eye. She might even be falling in love with him. But the hourglass is almost empty, and they're running out of time. Can they solve a baffling riddle and break the witch's curse before everything is lost.

Sounds good. :D
