Cover Reveal: Stained by: Cheryl Rainfield

Book Description:
In this heart-wrenching and suspenseful teen thriller, sixteen-year-old Sarah Meadows longs for "normal." Born with a port-wine stain covering half her face, all her life she’s been plagued by stares, giggles, bullying, and disgust. But when she’s abducted on the way home from school, Sarah is forced to uncover the courage she never knew she had, become a hero rather than a victim, and learn to look beyond her face to find the beauty and strength she has inside. It’s that—or succumb to a killer.
Tag Line: 
Sometimes you have to be your own hero.

Release Date:
Nov 19, 2013

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

From The Author:
Like I did with SCARS and HUNTED, I drew on some of my own experiences of bullying, abuse, and trauma to write STAINED and to give it greater emotional depth. Like Sarah in STAINED, I experienced abduction, imprisonment, periods of forced starvation, mind control, and having my life threatened. And like Sarah, I tried hard to fight against my abuser, keep my own sense of self, and escape. I hope readers will see Sarah's strength and courage, and appreciate her emotional growth as she reclaims herself.

Book Trailer:

I hope you guys check this book out, I love Cheryl Rainfield for her intense "issue" novels and I like that this book focuses on an issue that isn't talked about much in YA. I can't wait to read this novel and I hope that this trailer and the cover made you want to rush out and grab a copy in Novemeber as much as I do!!

Waiting on Wednesday (28) The Outside (The Hallowed Ones #2) By: Laura Bickle

Goodreads Summary: 

After a plague of vampires is unleashed in the world, Katie is kicked out of her Amish community for her refusal to adhere to the new rules of survival. Now in exile, she enters an outside world of unspeakable violence with only her two "English" friends and a horse by her side. Together they seek answers and other survivors—but each sunset brings the threat of vampire attack, and each sunrise the threat of starvation.      And yet through this darkness come the shining ones: luminescent men and women with the power to deflect vampires and survive the night. But can these new people be trusted, and are they even people at all?      In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, it’s up to one Amish girl to save her family, her community, and the boy she loves . . . but what will she be asked to leave behind in return?

WHY I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS BOOK: Yes, I know that the publication date is forever away but it's probably my most anticipated book of the year, as book #1 was my favorite book of 2012, and ever since I put those book down i've been dying to know what happens next!!
