All summaries from Goodreads.com!
Their Fractured Light (Starbound #3) by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Published by Disney-Hyperion 12/1/15.
The final installment in the Starboard trilogy. This has been a weird and crazy ride but I am excited to see how it ends!
A year ago, Flynn Cormac and Jubilee Chase made the now infamous Avon Broadcast, calling on the galaxy to witness for their planet, and protect them from destruction. Some say Flynn’s a madman, others whisper about conspiracies. Nobody knows the truth. A year before that, Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux were rescued from a terrible shipwreck—now, they live a public life in front of the cameras, and a secret life away from the world’s gaze.
Now, in the center of the universe on the planet of Corinth, all four are about to collide with two new players, who will bring the fight against LaRoux Industries to a head. Gideon Marchant is an eighteen-year-old computer hacker—a whiz kid and an urban warrior. He’ll climb, abseil and worm his way past the best security measures to pull off onsite hacks that others don’t dare touch.
Sofia Quinn has a killer smile, and by the time you’re done noticing it, she’s got you offering up your wallet, your car, and anything else she desires. She holds LaRoux Industries responsible for the mysterious death of her father and is out for revenge at any cost.
When a LaRoux Industries security breach interrupts Gideon and Sofia’s separate attempts to infiltrate their headquarters, they’re forced to work together to escape. Each of them has their own reason for wanting to take down LaRoux Industries, and neither trusts the other. But working together might be the best chance they have to expose the secrets LRI is so desperate to hide. (from Goodreads.com)
Frozen Tides (Falling Kingdoms #4) by Morgan Rhodes. Published by Razorbill 12/15/15.
If you haven’t yet started this series and entered Rhodes’ enchanting world of Mytica, then you are missing out. If you like Game of Thrones or just anything awesome in general, you should read this series.
WARNING: PLOT SUMMARY CONTAINS SPOILERS!
Rebels, royals, and monsters wage war over the Mytican throne in the shocking fourth book of the Falling Kingdoms series, from New York Times bestselling author Morgan Rhodes.
CLEO: Reeling after a bloody showdown in Limeros ending with Amara’s abduction of the water crystal, and a vacancy in the Mytican throne, Princess Cleo must cast aside her feelings and look toward her kingdom with the eyes of a Queen.
MAGNUS: With the kingdom in chaos, Princess Lucia still missing and quite possibly in danger, and a shocking realization about Cleo, the steely prince is once again torn between love and duty, leaving him wondering whether he’s strong enough to rule his people.
LUCIA: The young sorcercess has had her vengeance after the cruel death of her first and only love. Heartbroken and unable to trust anyone, she allies with the awoken Fire god, who also seeks revenge.
JONAS: After escaping death by the skin of his teeth, the defeated rebel—along with a mysterious stranger–leader reunites with Princess Cleo, only to find himself a mere pawn in a dangerous hunt for the elusive Kindred.

Untamed: A Splintered Companion (Splintered #3.5) by A.G. Howard. Published by Amulet Books 12/15/15.
While the Splintered trilogy was not my absolute favorite, *cough* Jeb *cough*, I did love a lot of elements that went into this story and am excited to see a sort of epilogue that is unlike the one we got in Ensnared.
WARNING: PLOT SUMMARY MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!
Alyssa Gardner went down the rabbit hole and took control of her destiny. She survived the battle for Wonderland and the battle for her heart. In this collection of three novellas, join Alyssa and her family as they look back at their memories of Wonderland.
In Six Impossible Things, Alyssa recalls the most precious moments of her life after Ensnared, and the role magic plays in preserving the happiness of those she loves. Alyssa’s mother reminisces about her own time in Wonderland and rescuing the man who would become her husband in The Boy in the Web. And Morpheus delves into Jeb’s memories of the events of Splintered in The Moth in the Mirror, available in print for the first time.
This collection expands upon Ensnared’s epilogue, and includes some deleted scenes to provide a “director’s cut” glimpse into the past and futures of our favorite Splintered characters. (from Goodreads.com)
See How They Run ( Embassy Row #2) by Ally Carter. Published by Scholastic Press 12/22/15.
All Fall Down was not my favorite book, but that ending really made me excited for this one (: I can’t wait to see how the story picks up in this installment now that all the groundwork has been laid.
