Bloomsbury 2014 YA Wishlist

I've seen a few blogs posting about the books that they cannot wait for from a variety of publishers catalogues. I thought I'd join in and show off the lovely books that are soon to be coming from Bloomsbury in 2014! I've linked up to Goodreads with the ones that have a GR page if they tickle your fancy too!


A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey
A Breath of Frost (The Lovegrove Legacy, #1)
In 1814, three cousins-Gretchen, Emma, and Penelope-discover their unknown family lineage of witchcraft. Beyond the familiar manicured gardens and ballrooms of Regency London, a dangerous, alluring new underworld visible only to those with power is now open to the cousins. 
But unbeknownst to them, by claiming their power, the three cousins have inadvertently opened the gates to the Underworld. 
Now the dead, ghouls, hellhounds-and the most terrifying of all: the spirits of dark witches known as the Greymalkin Sisters-are hunting and killing young debutante witches for their powers. 
And, somehow, Emma is connected to the murders...because she keeps finding the bodies. 
Can the cousins unravel the clues and mystery behind their heritage and power before their gifts are stripped away ...or even worse, another witch is killed?

  1. Nice list! I just realized there are a lot of series I need to start though. I'll probably start by catching up on Crown of Midnight. I'm also curious about Dangerous by Shannon Hale.
