Okay this is a new post I'll be doing every Monday, since there are always so many books I want and Waiting on Wednesday just doesn't come soon enough. Essentially I spotlight the books I'm super excited for that haven't come out yet. Ones that I'd kill (not really) to get an ARC of. I've got 3 for you today.

Pizza, Love and Other Stuff that Made Me Famous by Kathryn Williams
Can a spot on a teen reality show really lead to a scholarship at an elite cooking school AND a summer romance? Sixteen-year-old Sophie Nicolaides was practically raised in the kitchen of her family’s Italian-Greek restaurant, Taverna Ristorante. When her best friend, Alex, tries to convince her to audition for a new reality show, Teen Test Kitchen, Sophie is reluctant. But the prize includes a full scholarship to one of America's finest culinary schools and a summer in Napa, California, not to mention fame. Once on-set, Sophie immediately finds herself in the thick of the drama—including a secret burn book, cutthroat celebrity judges, and a very cute French chef. Sophie must figure out a way to survive all the heat and still stay true to herself.

I am such a nut for fun comedy books like this!!! I love lighthearted books that make you laugh. Especially if they have crazy awesome, silly titles like this. And super great covers. This book looks so FUN and I can't wait till it comes out....in a few months. Darn, I want to read this like NOW! Lucky for me it comes out soon after my birthday. Guess I know what I'm doing if I don't manage to swag an ARC somewhere. 


Venom by Fiona Paul
Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice’s lucky elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady’s maid, and a wealthy fiancĂ©, she has everything a girl could desire. Yet ever since her parents’ death, Cassandra has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape. When Cass stumbles upon a murdered woman—practically in her own backyard—she’s drawn into a dangerous world of courtesans, killers, and secret societies. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a mysterious artist with a mischievous grin... and a spectacular skill for trouble. Can Cassandra find the murderer, before he finds her? And will she stay true to her fiancĂ©, or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco?

Doesn't this look like an EPIC book to you? Sweet cover and synopsis. COVER LUST! I love YA Historical Novels. There are some really really awesome ones out there and this looks like it will be one of them! And I quote "Renaissance Venice". Am I the ONLY one hyperventilating right now?! I love anything Renaissance! What could be awesome than INTRIGUE in VENICE?!! Nothing right now. I have NO idea how I'm gonna be able to wait till October for this book. I might just try to get myself an ARC. If I can't.....well I'll be the first one in line at the Book Store. 


Black City by Elizabeth Richards
In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection, that causes Ash’s long dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong. When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths.
