Expected Pub: 9/2012 by Scholastic
“A seriously sick teen-action zombie fest.”*
The day of the ski trip, when the bus pulls up at a roadside restaurant, everyone gets off and heads in for lunch. Everyone, that is, except the new girl, Bobby, who stays behind with Smitty, the class bad boy.
Then hours pass. As the snow piles up and darkness falls, Bobby and Smitty begin to worry. Until they finally see the other kids heading back.
But they’ve changed. And not in a good way. Yeah, they’re zombies. And the doors to the bus are all that stand between Bobby and Smitty becoming their next meal!
The chill of The Shining, the thrill ride of Speed, the humor of Shaun of the Dead, and the angst of The Breakfast Club! It’s a bloody mad mash-up, a school-trip splatter-fest, a funny, gory, frighteningly good debut!
OMG RIGHT????? Dude! SHE’S HOLDING A BLOODY FREAKING AX!!! This is the U.S. version, and I am IN LOVE with this cover!!!! I need it in my life… like YESTERDAY!
And did you catch that blurb???

The City’s Son (The Skyscraper Throne #1) by Tom Pollock
Expected Pub: 9/8/2012 by Flux Books
Running from her traitorous best friend and her estranged father, graffiti artist Beth Bradley is looking for sanctuary. What she finds is Urchin, the ragged and cocky crown prince of London’s mystical underworld. Urchin opens Beth’s eyes to the city she’s never truly seen-where vast spiders crawl telephone wires seeking voices to steal, railwraiths escape their tethers, and statues conceal an ancient priesthood robed in bronze.
But it all teeters on the brink of destruction. Amid rumors that Urchin’s goddess mother will soon return from her 15-year exile, Reach, a malign god of urban decay, wants the young prince dead. Helping Urchin raise an alleyway army to reclaim his skyscraper throne, Beth soon forgets her old life. But when her best friend is captured, Beth must choose between this wondrous existence and the life she left behind.
I’ve been cyber stalking this one for awhile now… I LOVE the way this cover makes me REACT. Some just do. *shrugs* I will have this one too!
Girl of Nightmares (Anna #2) by Kendare Blake
In this follow-up to Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas begins seeing Anna everywhere: sometimes when he’s asleep, and sometimes in waking nightmares. But something is very wrong. These aren’t just daydreams. Anna seems tortured, torn apart in new and ever more gruesome ways every time she appears.
Cas doesn’t know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn’t deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it’s time for him to return the favor.
Honestly, I didn’t think it could get ANY better than Anna Dressed In Blood… then the cover for Girl of Nightmares was released, and it was gorgeous! NOW they’ve tweaked it EVER so slightly- and it’s STUNNINGLY BREATHTAKING!!
Come back tomorrow for the OFFICIAL start to Zombie Craze 2012!!!
