Ruin and Rising (The Grisha #3) - Leigh Bardugo

The capital has fallen. The Darkling rules Ravka from his shadow throne.

Now the nation's fate rests with a broken Sun Summoner, a disgraced tracker, and the shattered remnants of a once-great magical army.

Deep in an ancient network of tunnels and caverns, a weakened Alina must submit to the dubious protection of the Apparat and the zealots who worship her as a Saint. Yet her plans lie elsewhere, with the hunt for the elusive firebird and the hope that an outlaw prince still survives.

Alina will have to forge new alliances and put aside old rivalries as she and Mal race to find the last of Morozova's amplifiers. But as she begins to unravel the Darkling's secrets, she reveals a past that will forever alter her understanding of the bond they share and the power she wields. The firebird is the one thing that stands between Ravka and destruction—and claiming it could cost Alina the very future she’s fighting for.

And in a desperate tone, Kay utters the four words Amy had hoped she would never hear: Dr. Reynolds has Baby.

Now it’s a race against time, for Baby is in imminent danger, her life threatened by the malevolent doctor who had helped start the end of the world. In order to save Baby, Amy must make her way to Fort Black, a prison-turned-survivor-colony, where she will need to find Ken, Kay’s brother. He alone holds the key to Baby’s survival.

#scandal - Sarah Ockler

Amazon | BookDepository

Lucy’s learned some important lessons from tabloid darling Jayla Heart’s all-too-public blunders: Avoid the spotlight, don’t feed the Internet trolls, and keep your secrets secret. The policy has served Lucy well all through high school, so when her best friend Ellie gets sick before prom and begs her to step in as Cole’s date, she accepts with a smile, silencing about ten different reservations. Like the one where she’d rather stay home shredding online zombies. And the one where she hates playing dress-up. And especially the one where she’s been secretly in love with Cole since the dawn of time.

When Cole surprises her at the after party with a kiss under the stars, it’s everything Lucy has ever dreamed of… and the biggest BFF deal-breaker ever. Despite Cole’s lingering sweetness, Lucy knows they’ll have to ’fess up to Ellie. But before they get the chance, Lucy’s own Facebook profile mysteriously explodes with compromising pics of her and Cole, along with tons of other students’ party indiscretions. Tagged. Liked. And furiously viral.

By Monday morning, Lucy’s been branded a slut, a backstabber, and a narc, mired in a tabloid-worthy scandal just weeks before graduation.

Lucy’s been battling undead masses online long enough to know there’s only one way to survive a disaster of this magnitude: Stand up and fight. Game plan? Uncover and expose the Facebook hacker, win back her best friend’s trust, and graduate with a clean slate.

There’s just one snag—Cole. Turns out Lucy’s not the only one who’s been harboring unrequited love...

Cammie McGovern's insightful young adult debut is a heartfelt and heartbreaking story about how we can all feel lost until we find someone who loves us because of our faults, not in spite of them.

Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.

When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.

Sixteen-year-old Thea Holder's mother is cursed with a spell that's driving her mad, and whenever they touch, Thea is chilled by the magic, too. With no one else to contribute, Thea must make a living for both of them in a sinister city, where danger lurks and greed rules.

Perfect for fans of Cassandra Clare, this is a chilling thriller with a touch of magic where the dead don't always seem to stay that way.

Fan Art - Sarah Tregay

Amazon | BookDepository

When the picture tells the story…

Senior year is almost over, and Jamie Peterson has a big problem. Not college—that’s all set. Not prom—he’ll find a date somehow. No, it’s the worst problem of all: he’s fallen for his best friend.

As much as Jamie tries to keep it under wraps, everyone seems to know where his affections lie, and the giggling girls in art class are determined to help Jamie get together with Mason. But Jamie isn’t sure if that’s what he wants—because as much as Jamie would like to come clean to Mason, what if the truth ruins everything? What if there are no more road trips, taco dinners, or movie nights? Does he dare risk a childhood friendship for romance?

This book is about what happens when a picture reveals what we can’t say, when art is truer than life, and how falling in love is easy, except when it’s not. Fan Art explores the joys and pains of friendship, of pressing boundaries, and how facing our worst fears can sometimes lead us to what we want most.

3 novas séries e 3 continuações nessa lista, e vale ressaltar que Ruin and Rising está em primeiro na lista geral, e não apenas dentro de Y.A. Hexed já estava na minha lista no GoodReads, e Dark Metropolis eu adicionei agora, pois já tinha achado interessante, e possivelmente vou ler depois. E vocês, vão ler algum dessa lista? Qual?

    Nossa PLL não acaba mais '-_- eram para ser só sete livros e agora já tem quinze.


    Ane Reis.
    mydearlibrary | Livros, divagações e outras histórias...

    1. Nem me fale, as vezes dá até um desânimo. Mas aí eu lembro que melhor isso do que não ter nada pra ler, né?

      Beijos =**

  2. Meu deus estou super por fora dos YA!
    Tenho que correr atrás do tempo perdido, que tem livros que parecem ótimos na lista!
    Julguei PLL pela capa, prontofalei, achei essas capas horríveis e como protesto não comprei o livro (haha), depois passou toda a vontade de ler a série, aaainda mais agora sabendo que já são QUINZE!! ;x

    um beijo Lara!

    1. Eu também estou muito por fora =/
      Fiquei muito tempo lendo pouquíssimos livros, inclusive YA. E agora estou com receio de pegar séries/trilogias, por que aí é um bom compromisso, né? A única série que talvez e leia seja Hexed e Dark Metropolis, mas antes vou deixar o pessoal dizer se tá legal ou não.
      Eu estou a fim de arranjar o Drink, Slay, Love, que é um de vampiros, mas é único, sem continuação.

      Mesmo sem querer, a gente sempre julga ao menos um pouquinho pela capa, e essas de PLL não ajudam nem um pouco, né?


  3. Puts, essas capas de PLL são de doer os olhos haha
    Mas eu comprei um box com o quatro primeiros só por curiosidade pela história, o primeiro é interessante, mas os demais são tão repetitivos e cansativos que eu acabei desanimando mesmo :/
    Esse Ruin and Rising é a sequência daquele Sombra e Ossos? Se for, só ouvi comentários bons, estou louca pra ler *-*

    1. Se no 4o você já estava achando repetitivo, imagina quem está no 15, hahaha.

      É o terceiro da série do Sombra e Ossos. Não lembro de cabeça o nome do segundo, mas acho que até tava saindo ou já saiu no Brasil :)
      Eu também estou com vontade de ler, mas... mais uma série? Não dááááá

  4. Cadê esses livros no brasil? Principalmente In the After e a sua continuação *-*

    1. Ahh, pois é... Bem, não duvido que essas séries novas venham pra cá, ao menos se forem bem recebidas lá nos EUA. Alguns desses 'standalone' também são bem capaz de virem pra cá, mas talvez demore um pouco.
