Title Announcements 6/17 for 6/19 Sign-Ups

Literary Lushes officially launched TODAY and we are so excited to get the ball rolling!

As you now know, Literary Lushes is not only a Twitter chat but also an ARC Tour site. How the tours will work is before we post the galleys available for a tour, we will have an announcement of what we’re posting that week, inspired by the galley drops at BEA. For example, this week Monday (today), we’re announcing the titles that will be “dropped” and open for sign-ups on Wednesday. Each announcement will have a little info on the book so that if you haven’t heard of it before, you can decide if you’re interested in signing up or not.

Ready to get to today’s announcement? I know you are! Here are the titles we’ll have open for sign-ups on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19TH:

“A cruise ship. A beautiful island. Two sexy guys. What could possibly go wrong?
In the Bermuda Triangle—a lot.
Hoping to leave behind the reminders of her crappy life–her father’s death years ago, her mother’s medical problems, and the loser who’s practically stalking her–seventeen-year-old Autumn Taylor hops on a ship with her sister for a little distraction. When she wakes up in the Bermuda Triangle, she fears she’s gone nuts for more than one reason: that loser’s suddenly claiming they’re a happy couple… a hot guy is wrapping his arms around her and saying “Happy Anniversary”… and suddenly, she’s full of bruises, losing her hair, and getting IV medication. Autumn visits the ship’s doctor, hoping for a pill or a shot to make the craziness go away. Instead, she’s warned that these “alternate realities” could become permanent.
She just has to ask herself one question—how the hell is she going to get out of this mess?” (Synopsis as listed on Goodreads)

InkTitle: Ink
Author: Amanda Sun
Publishing Info: June 25th 2013 by Harlequin Teen
Series?: Yes — Ink #1
Donated by: Brittany (The Book Addict’s Guide)

“On the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.
Then there’s gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer. But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the wrong people notice, they’ll both be targets.
Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.” (Synopsis as listed on Goodreads)

AwakenTitle: Awaken
Author: Meg Cabot
Publishing Info: July 2nd 2013 by Point
Series?: Yes — Abandon Trilogy #3
Donated by: Alyssa (Books Take You Places)

“Death has her in his clutches. She doesn’t want him to let go.
Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera knew by accepting the love of John Hayden, she’d be forced to live forever in the one place she’s always dreaded most: the Underworld. The sacrifice seemed worth it, though, because it meant she could be with the boy she loves.
But now her happiness — and safety — are threatened, all because the Furies have discovered that John has broken one of their strictest rules: He revived a human soul.
If the balance between life and death isn’t fixed, both the Underworld and Pierce’s home back on earth will be wiped away. But there’s only one way to restore order. Someone has to die.” (Synopsis as listed on Goodreads)

A Midsummer Night's ScreamTitle: A Midsummer Night’s Scream
Author: R.L. Stine
Publishing Info: July 2nd 2013 by Feiwel & Friends
Series?: No
Donated by: Alyssa (Books Take You Places)

“Get ready for laughter to turn into screams in R.L. Stine’s re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Everyone knows that Mayhem Manor is cursed. After production on the horror film was stopped due to a series of mysterious deaths, it became a Hollywood legend–which makes it perfect for Claire and her family. If they can successfully finish the film, it should be enough to save their ailing movie studio.
Sure, the old haunted house is creepy, and strange stuff has been happening, but this is Claire’s chance. Her chance to become the movie star she’s always dreamed and her chance to finally convince her friend Jake that she is girlfriend material. Of course, the fact that Jake thinks he’s in love with her best friend, Delia, who is crushing hard on Jake’s friend Shawn, who insists on following Claire around, could be a problem, but Claire is sure she can figure it out. After all, the course of true love never did run smooth.
But once shooting starts, “creepy and strange” morph into “bloody and deadly,” as the lines between film and reality begin to blur….” (Synopsis as listed on Goodreads)
