Fangirl Friday: Harry Potter Short Stories + This Week's Releases in YA

Seems like everyone just started to go back to school and sadly this is my last week of summer vacation before I start college this monday (Sophia: SUCKS TO SUCK. THIS CHICK STARTS ONE WEEK LATER). It's sad, but I'm just excited to go and see what college is REALLY about. AND no. I'm commuting not staying inside a small dorm with some other person. I like my space, thank you VERY MUCH.

But let's talk about Harry Potter and how I still have YET to read this saga. (DON'T JUDGE ME! I'M WORKING ON IT!)

Apparently J.K Rowling is going to release 3 Harry Potter Short Stories as ebooks on September 6!
Great news for you Harry Potter fans out there!

Each of these ebooks will be sold for $2.99 each. What a deal!
I'm sure many of you will pre-order these and just binge read them before the whole internet spoils them for you. I know the feeling.

I'm going to start listing three books that I think are interesting that have been released each week. That way you guys have an idea what new books are out there for you to read! I'm sure our reading lists will never end at this rate,

So all of these books listed below were released on August 16!

Title: Vicarious
By: Paula Stokes
Winter Kim and her sister, Rose, have always been inseparable. Together, the two of them survived growing up in a Korean orphanage and being trafficked into the United States.

Now they work as digital stunt girls for Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Gideon, engaging in dangerous and enticing activities while recording their neural impulses for his Vicarious Sensory Experiences, or ViSEs. Whether it’s bungee jumping, shark diving, or grinding up against celebrities at the city’s hottest dance clubs, Gideon can make it happen for you, for a price.

When Rose disappears and a ViSE recording of her murder is delivered to Gideon, Winter won’t rest until she finds her sister’s killer. But when the clues she uncovers conflict with the neural recordings her sister made, Winter isn’t sure what to believe. To find out what happened to Rose, she’ll have to untangle what’s real from what only seems real, risking her life in the process.
 

Title: The Flame Never Dies (The Stars Never Rise #2)
By: Rachel Vincent
ONE SPARK WILL RISE. Nina Kane was born to be an exorcist. And since uncovering the horrifying truth—that the war against demons is far from over—seventeen-year-old Nina and her pregnant younger sister, Mellie, have been on the run, incinerating the remains of the demon horde as they go.

In the badlands, Nina, Mellie, and Finn, the fugitive and rogue exorcist who saved her life, find allies in a group of freedom fighters. They also face a new threat: Pandemonia, a city full of demons. But this fresh new hell is the least of Nina’s worries. The well of souls ran dry more than a century ago, drained by the demons secretly living among humans, and without a donor soul, Mellie’s child will die within hours of its birth.

Nina isn’t about to let that happen . . . even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.
 

Title: Poisoned Blade (Court of Fives #2)
By: Kate Elliott 
In this thrilling sequel to World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott's captivating young adult debut, a girl immersed in high-stakes competition holds the fate of a kingdom in her hands. 
Now a Challenger, Jessamy is moving up the ranks of the Fives--the complex athletic contest favored by the lowliest Commoners and the loftiest Patrons alike. Pitted against far more formidable adversaries, success is Jes's only option, as her prize money is essential to keeping her hidden family alive. She leaps at the chance to tour the countryside and face more competitors, but then a fatal attack on her traveling party puts Jes at the center of the war that Lord Kalliarkos--the prince she still loves--is fighting against their country's enemies. With a sinister overlord watching her every move and Kal's life on the line, Jes must now become more than a Fives champion.... She must become a warrior.

Let me slip in another book onto this epic list!

Title: Detached
By: Christina Kilbourne
Released: August 13, 2016
Anna has always been so level-headed, so easy-going, so talented and funny. How could anyone have guessed she wanted to die?

Anna is not like other people. For one thing, she’s been an accomplished artist since she was a preschooler. For another, she’s always felt like she didn’t belong: not with other kids, not with her family, not in her body. It isn’t until her grandparents are killed in a tragic accident, however, that Anna starts to feel untethered. She begins to wonder what it would be like if she didn’t exist and the thought of escaping the aimless drifting is the only thing that brings her comfort.

When Anna overdoses on prescription pain killers the doctors realize she has been suffering from depression and start looking for a way to help her out of the desperate black hole she never thought she would escape. It’s then that rock bottom comes into sight and the journey back to normal begins.
