New Release Tuesday...The Ones I'm Psyched For [15]

City of Heavenly Fire (Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare


I am coming.

Darkness returns to the Shadowhunter world. As their society falls apart around them, Clary, Jace, Simon and their friends must band together to fight the greatest evil the Nephilim have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Nothing in the world can defeat him — must they journey to another world to find the chance? Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last installment of the Mortal Instruments series!

Who isn't excited for the release of City of Heavenly Fire, the final book in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare?! Although I still think that the series should have ended at City of Glass, that doesn't mean I don't want to find out what happens in this last book. There were enough cliff-hangers at the end of City of Lost Souls to bring me back to the series one last time.

Guy in Real Life by Steve Brezenoff

From the acclaimed author of Brooklyn, Burning comes Guy in Real Life, an achingly real and profoundly moving love story about two Minnesota teens whose lives become intertwined through school, role-playing games, and a chance two-a.m. bike accident.

It is Labor Day weekend in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and boy and girl collide on a dark street at two thirty in the morning: Lesh, who wears black, listens to metal, and plays MMOs; Svetlana, who embroiders her skirts, listens to Björk and Berlioz, and dungeon masters her own RPG. They should pick themselves up, continue on their way, and never talk to each other again.

But they don't.

This is a story of two people who do not belong in each other's lives, who find each other at a time when they desperately need someone who doesn't belong in their lives. A story of those moments when we act like people we aren't in order to figure out who we are. A story of the roles we all play-at school, at home, with our friends, and without our friends-and the one person who might show us what lies underneath it all.

I'm excited for this book because it looks different from a lot books out there and I hope it lives up to my expectations because I feel like this plot line has the potential of ending up very cliched. It looks like a fun read and I'm excited to pick it up in the near future.
