Happy Book Birthday To...

We have an awesome load of releases today! Since there are so many that I can't keep track of them, I'll just mention the ones that I have reviewed/will be reviewing some time in the near future on the blog. (When I get to them... eventually...)

THE AWESOME THREE, as modeled by Panpan the Book-Loving Chihuahua (It's Chinese... pronounced "pehn pehn").
Supernaturally (Paranormalcy, #2)Supernaturally by Kiersten White (Paranormalcy, #2)
Evie finally has the normal life she’s always longed for. But she’s shocked to discover that being ordinary can be . . . kind of boring. Just when Evie starts to long for her days at the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she’s given a chance to work for them again. Desperate for a break from all the normalcy, she agrees.

But as one disastrous mission leads to another, Evie starts to wonder if she made the right choice. And when Evie’s faerie ex-boyfriend Reth appears with devastating revelations about her past, she discovers that there’s a battle brewing between the faerie courts that could throw the whole supernatural world into chaos. The prize in question? Evie herself.

So much for normal.
Wolfsbane (Nightshade Series #2)Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer (Nightshade, #2)
When Calla Tor wakes up in the lair of the Searchers, her sworn enemies, she’s certain her days are numbered. But then the Searchers make her an offer—one that gives her the chance to destroy her former masters and save the pack—and the man—she left behind. Is Ren worth the price of her freedom? And will Shay stand by her side no matter what? Now in control of her own destiny, Calla must decide which battles are worth fighting and how many trials true love can endure and still survive.
WildefireWildefire by Karsten Knight (Wildefire, #1)
Every flame begins with a spark.

Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She’s struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve’s violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California’s redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she’s one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she’s got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.
I am currently reading Wildefire! Panpan says she enjoyed it very much.
This is her serious book-modeling face.
Also, happy book birthday to fellow Texan Jason Henderson, with his novel Alex Van Helsing: Voice of the Undead! I've already read and reviewed it, so be sure to check it out! 
Alex Van Helsing: Voice of the Undead (Alex Van Helsing #2)Now that Alex knows about the deadly vampires that live-and hunt-around his boarding school, he's decided to train with the Polidorium to become a vampire hunter, just like his Van Helsing ancestors. Meanwhile, Alex's archnemesis Elle, a vampire whose youthful appearance disguises a vengeful rage, is out to get him before a powerful leader called "Ultravox" arrives on the scene. The situation is grave; innocent lives hang in the balance, and it's on Alex to act now- or else.

From the opening motorcycle-chase scene to a daring train rescue and a climactic showdown aboard a luxury yacht, 
Voice of the Undead is a gripping, fast-paced stand-alone sequel to Vampire Rising, perfect for fans of Alex Rider and The Last Apprentice. With an action-packed plot that will draw in teens and tweens alike, this breathlessly fun series has been praised as "James Bond meets Dracula."
Have a cupcake.
