Author: Veronica Rossi

Summary:
Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—nicknamed The Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms eventually will. In this dystopia, even the very air she breathes could kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild, dangerous—a savage. He’s also her only hope. 

Perry needs Aria, too. She alone holds the key to his redemption. And their unlikely alliance will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky....Read more at Goodreads.
Love the sound of this! The cover is awesome, especially the font.

The Girl of Fire and Thorns
Author: Rae Carson
Release: September 20th, 2011
Summary:
Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness. 

Elisa is the chosen one.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess. 

And he’s not the only one who seeks her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior....read more at Goodreads
This one intrigues me as well - and it's on Netgalley (yay!)

  3. Both of these novels sound great! Under The Never Sky looks like another great dystopian novel and as for The Girl of Fire and Thorns, it's nice to see how the girl is a princess!

  4. I'm not really liking the new cover for The Girl of Fire and Thorns but I guess its what's inside the pages that count.

  21. Oooh, both of those sound really good! I'm always looking for new YA lit to check out, so I'll have to put those on my radar. I thought you might like my WoW, which is a book by a new author that I'm working with: (S)Mythology by Jeremy Tarr. It's a modern day fairy tale that is wry and whimsical, and tackles life...death...and the Underworld. The book is super cute and has illustrations by artist Katy Smail, which really bring the main character Sophie to life.

    You can read the first three chapters and check out the illustrations at www.smythology.co.uk or check out the book on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/Shardcover.

    Enjoy!
