February Excitement!

So February is almost here!! Personally, that is always a yay moment for me because it's when it's official that three months of winter are over and we're ticking down to spring :)

There are also a few exciting books coming out in the next few weeks!

I had the honour of getting to read this in advance through Netgalley, and I am SO excited that I got to!!! Coming out on February 3rd, 'Shutter' tells the story of Micheline Helsing, a young girl who can see the auras of the undead and also happens to be one of the few descendants left of the well known Van-Helsing dynasty. She's accompanied by three boys who are her close friends and at her side through danger and excitement - Jude, Ryder and Oliver. I have a full review that I need to post on here as I have neglected to so far!! But if you like horror, kick-ass girls, a touch of romance and fun action, this is definitely a book to check out.

Red Queen is coming out on February 10th, and it looks seriously amazing. Here is the summary, nabbed from GR:

The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?
Does that sound cool or what?? I can't wait, honestly, I hope it lives up to my expectations!

Here is another one that I am eagerly anticipating - coming out on February 10th as well. Here is the synopsis:

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning..
This will either be amazing or horrible. I'm pretty sure of it already, reading that. I am crossing my fingers for the first because it's such a tricky subject and it would be so awesome to read a book that manages to take it on in a well-rounded way. 

Well, that's it for now... Mostly because I'm writing this on my lunch. :P But let me know if there's anything you're anticipating, and I'll be hopefully updating with a few more over this weekend!
