Spotlight: 2011 Debuts I would like to see in the UK - Part 2


A continuation of yesterdays post where I drool over books that are available in the US but have yet to be published in the UK. All publication details are based on the US release.

Title: Spellbound
Publisher: Harlequin
Publication Date: 28 June 2011

Synopsis from Goodreads

What's a girl to do when meeting The One means she's cursed to die a horrible death?

Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Connor, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to—Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.

But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives—visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.

If you know me then you know this book has my name written all over it.

Title: Dead Rules
Author: Randy Russell 
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publication Date: 21 June 2011

Synopsis from Goodreads

Till death

Jana Webster and Michael Haynes were in love. They were destined to be together forever.


But Jana's destiny was fatally flawed. And now she's in Dead School, where Mars Dreamcote lurks in the back of the classroom, with his beguiling blue eyes, mysterious smile, and irresistibly warm touch.


Michael and Jana were incomplete without each other. There was no room for Mars in Jana's life—or death—story. Jana was sure Michael would rush to her side soon.


But things aren't going according to Jana's plan. So Jana decides to do whatever it takes to make her dreams come true—no matter what rules she has to break.

Reviews are brilliant and make me droll.

UPDATE: I am extremely pleased to tell you that Dead Rules has been picked up by Querus for Publication in March 2012. SQUEEEEE
