I’m back off my blog break!! woo! I didnt get as much read as I would have liked this week though but nevermind, I’m all moved in to my boyfriends mums, trying to fit a whole flat into one room is a nightmare but oh well! I will be moving again but I’ll try not to go on another blog holiday next time! 😀 
Anyway… This weeks wishes… These are VERY VERY important and I cant wait to get hold of these three books, technically I’ve read one but it was a library copy and I want my own with the shiny pretty new cover below! none of these actually come out until mid 2012 but I have to highlight them now becuase I want them so badly and they are from authors I believe I can call friends – at least in the twitter sense of the word!

The first two wishes are books from the awesome Zoe Marriott – these covers and the synopsis for Frostfire were revealed this week on her blog The Zoe-Trope 
Daughter of the Flames – Zoe Marriott

Originally published March 2008 – New cover publishes July 2012 (Walker)

Goodreads Summary:

What if your deadliest enemy were the only one who could save you? Inside an ancient temple in the mountains, fifteen-year-old Zira trains in the martial arts to become a warrior priestess who can defend the faith of the Ruan people. Bearing a scar on her face from the fire that killed her parents, the orphaned Zira is taught to distrust the occupying Sedornes.

Frostfire – Zoe Marriott
July 2012 (Walker) 

Goodreads Summary:

A companion novel to Daughter of the Flames 


Frost is cursed – possessed by a wolf demon that brings death everywhere she goes. Desperate to find a cure, she flees her home, only to be captured by the Ruan Hill Guard. Trapped until she can prove she is not an enemy, Frost grows increasingly close to the Guard’s charismatic leader Luca and his second in command, the tortured Arian. Torn between two very different men, Frost fears that she may not be able to protect either of them … from herself.

My next wish comes from the awesome Keris who I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and going for coffee with! She’s awesome and I cant wait to read her new book! 

please note: cover may differ… 
Emma Hearts LA – Keris Stainton 
June 2012 (Orchard books) 

Amazon summary:
Emma’s not sure that LA’s for her, but when she accompanies her sister Jane to an audition, a chance meeting with a teen TV star starts to change her new sunshine lifestyle for the better… But what about Oscar, so far her only friend in LA, who’s turning out NOT to be the idiot she thought he was?

Soon Emma begins to find herself torn between two boys and reconsidering her entire future. 

Maybe LA’s not that bad after all.
