February is finally here! I don't know about you but January always seems to drag a bit each year, what with the back to reality after the excitement of Christmas and New Year, resolutions made (and possibly broken) and the likes of Blue Monday and others. But Feb is here, we're well and truly into 2013 and there are some exciting things coming up!
First and foremost there are two fantastic books by Mira Ink coming out that deserve a mention:
'Speechless' by Hannah Harrington, author of 'Saving June' is out on the 6th February and if you haven't heard of it already here's a little teaser:
Everyone knows that Chelsea Knott can’t keep a secret
Until now. Because the last secret she shared turned her into a social outcast--and nearly got someone killed. Chelsea has taken a vow of silence--to learn to keep her mouth shut and to stop hurting anyone else. There’s strength in silence, and in the new friends who are, shockingly, coming her way. Including a boy she might even fall for. If only her new friends can forgive her…if only she could forgive herself.
But saying she’s sorry will never be enough...
Look out for the 'Speechless' blog tour which starts on 11th February.
The second is:
'Spellcaster' by Cara Lynn Schultz, sequel to the amazing 'Spellbound' which was released last year:
‘Whatever danger there is, it’s bigger than the two of you.’ ‘It’s got more hate than you two have love.’ Angelique looked at me with sad eyes. “Brendan would do anything for you. He has done anything for you. More of his energy should be reflected in the crystals. Something this dark, it has to have some kind of magical force behind it.”
'So what do I do now?’ I felt the panic rising in my chest. Angelique took a deep breath. ‘I have absolutely no idea.’
Any Cara Lynn Schultz fans out there? How do you think the second in the series will pan out? It's most definitely going to be another book full of excitement, drama and love.
Aside from these books there is lots more exciting things to occupy our February:
The BAFTAS is on next Sunday, 10th February.
Who do you think is going to win awards? There have some really big names that came out last and this year, with the likes of Life of Pi, Les Mis, Silver Lining's Playbook and Skyfall, as well as some to be released like Hitchcock and Lincoln.
Another thing that is sure to cause a stir in the world of YA fiction, is the release of the film 'Beautiful Creatures' out 13th February.
How many of you have read the book? Will the film live up to it? How about Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert, do you think they're good choices for Ethan and Lena?
Here's the trailer if you haven't seen it already:
Let me know what you think about it all, anything else you're looking forward to in February?
As always, stay tuned for the likes of these as well as lots of new, fantastic posts on here throughout the months!
