Title: Nowhere But Here (Thunder Road #1)
Author: Katie McGarry
Genre: Contemporary 
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: May 26th, 2015

Summary: 
Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home
I am so excited for Nowhere But Here! I am such a huge Katie McGarry fan, and her Pushing the Limits series was one I followed since the first book. I'm more than ready for Nowhere But Here - the cover is gorgeous and I just can't wait to get my hands on it! May can't come fast enough!


Amber's Waiting On:


Title: Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes #2)
Author: Sara Raasch 
Genre: Fantasy 
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Publication Date: October 13th 2015

Summary: 
It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell. Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves? Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats? As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world.
Talk about major cover lust. This cover is stunning, even more so then Snow Like Ashes. I loved the first book in the series and when I finished I couldn't wait for news on this one. I need more Theron in my life!!!

  3. I truly didn't think the cover for Snow Like Ashes could be topped by its sequels but Ice Like Fire totally does. How did they manage to keep them looking the same and it still be better? LOVE IT. I also can't wait for Katie McGarry's next one. I haven't read her Pushing the Limits series because I knew I would want to marathon through them once they were all released. So that's my plan in the near future. : )
