Kait [Vixen 1]'s Pick -

Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Expected Publication: April 16th, 2013

Walking Disaster (Beautiful, #2)From Goodreads:
How much is too much to love?

Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. Just when he thought he was invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.

Every story has two sides. In Jamie McGuire's New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster Abby had her say. Now it's time to see the story through Travis's eyes.

I'm sure that there are legions of fans who can't wait to read this. I completely fell for Travis in Beautiful Disaster and I was beyond excited when I heard that Jamie was writing the story from Travis' POV. And good lord, just look at that cover. It's absolutely gorgeous. Any other Travis fans out there?


Beth [Vixen 2]'s Pick - 

 Ok wow, I mean this sounds AMAZING. well.... I do have a thing for Alice in Wonderland, so this definitely appeases me! I think I'll be grabbing this sooner than later!

Splintered - A.G. Howard
Expected Publication - January 1st, 2013 

 This stunning debut captures the grotesque madness of a mystical under-land, as well as a girl’s pangs of first love and independence. Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.

When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.

  7. I haven't read Beautiful Disaster but I want to because everyone has said it's really good, and as for your second choice I will have to read it!. It's inspired by Alice in Wonderland after all and I have a slight obsession with that :), thanks for stopping by my WoW post! :D.

  8. I read an ARC copy of Splintered and LOVED it! I can not wait for the book to come out in January so I can buy a finished copy. I'm unsure if I'm going to read Walking Disaster, Beautiful Disaster was pretty good but I'm just not sure I want to read from Travis's POV.
