Monday Madness (29): The Secret Year by Jennifer Hubbard & The Iron King by Julie Kagawa



What is Monday Madness?

It’s the phenomenon affecting all book lovers as we count down the hours in hopes of getting our hands on highly anticipated books on release day. So, come join me throughout the week where I will be featuring Author Interviews, Reviews and Contests for great books.

This week's feature was postponed at Jennifer's request instead of being featured during release week.

The Secret Year by Jennifer Hubbard
Pub. Date: January 7, 2010
Publisher: Penguin Young Readers Group
Format: Hardcover, 208pp
Age Range: Young Adult

Synopsis
Take Romeo and Juliet. Add The Outsiders. Mix thoroughly.

Colt and Julia were secretly together for an entire year, and no one—not even Julia's boyfriend— knew. They had nothing in common, with Julia in her country club world on Black Mountain and Colt from down on the flats, but it never mattered. Until Julia dies in a car accident, and Colt learns the price of secrecy. He can't mourn Julia openly, and he's tormented that he might have played a part in her death. When Julia's journal ends up in his hands, Colt relives their year together at the same time that he's desperately trying to forget her. But how do you get over someone who was never yours in the first place?

I will be featuring 3 books released during the first week of February and The Iron King will be featured this week.

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Pub. Date: February 2010
Publisher: Harlequin
Format: Paperback, 368pp
Age Range: Young Adult

Synopsis
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.

But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
