Book Releases: April!

it's April! so much is happening this month, not to forget MY BIRTHDAY woho, (15th april, take note)

I have been checking the new releases for this month and there is a lot of dystopias and sci-fi going on this month! I had to dig deep to find other books, but 1 or two from the genres just named will also be shown here, so don't you worry child. 

Taken (Taken, #1)Taken (#1 taken)
By  Erin Bowman
Expected publication: April 16th 2013 by HarperTeen

There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys—but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteenth birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends…and he’s gone.

They call it the Heist.

Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate–until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot–a structure that no one can cross and survive.

Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after the Heist could be worse. Should he sit back and wait to be taken–or risk everything on the hope of the other side?

sci-fi and dystopia in one! the review reminds me a bit about Beautiful Creatures, I hope it's nothing like Beautiful Creatures!

The Program (The Program, #1)
EUW on the cover.
the Program (#1 the program)
By Suzanne Young
Expected publication: April 30th 2013 by Simon Pulse

In Sloane’s world, true feelings are forbidden, teen suicide is an epidemic, and the only solution is The Program.

Sloane knows better than to cry in front of anyone. With suicide now an international epidemic, one outburst could land her in The Program, the only proven course of treatment. Sloane’s parents have already lost one child; Sloane knows they’ll do anything to keep her alive. She also knows that everyone who’s been through The Program returns as a blank slate. Because their depression is gone—but so are their memories.

Under constant surveillance at home and at school, Sloane puts on a brave face and keeps her feelings buried as deep as she can. The only person Sloane can be herself with is James. He’s promised to keep them both safe and out of treatment, and Sloane knows their love is strong enough to withstand anything. But despite the promises they made to each other, it’s getting harder to hide the truth. They are both growing weaker. Depression is setting in. And The Program is coming for them.

Is it just me, or does this review make me curious of what it IS that make them commit suicide, and what it is that make them so depressive? I bet my  L.J smith books on that the "programe" is  the military or the  government. Like always. but only one way to find out!

This Is What Happy Looks LikeThis is What Happy Looks Like
By Jennifer E. Smith
Expected publication: April 2nd 2013 by Poppy
If fate sent you an email, would you answer?

When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds. 

Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs? 

I think this book will be awesome, the review gives me those "great book" vibes, easy, fun, youthful, romantic. I have to have it!
btw, she wrote the statistic probability of love at first sight.

The Collector (Dante Walker, #1)the Collector  (#1 Dante Walker)
By Victoria Scott
Expected publication: April 2nd 2013 by Entangled Tee

He makes good girls...bad. 

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple: weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal-opportunity collector and doesn't want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within ten days.

Dante doesn't know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect, he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector…and uncover emotions deeply buried.
hasn't this book been promoted for a good while now, and it's coming out now? maybe I'm mistaking this book for some other book. 
anyway, I'm not a fan of these "bad boys" who know they look good and all that cliché but I'm still a bit interested in knowing exactly how this nerd girl changes him. girls who doesn't scream the loudest and get them most attention have always interested me, Im s curious, what's going on in their head? I think this book will be a real hit or a total flop.

wow, great books to check out this month! I think im going to take my ebook reader and go to a park and something and just read. she sun is finally starting to peek out and melt away this horrible snow, thank Godness! But I will at least wait until it get +10C... 

stay smart, stay chic
