Coming Soon to a Library Near You is a weekly feature inspired by Jill at Breaking the Spine that looks at upcoming books.

This week’s book: The Iron Thorn
Author: Caitlin Kittedge
Release Date: Feb 22 2011
In the city of Lovecraft, the Proctors rule and a great Engine turns below the streets, grinding any resistance to their order to dust. The necrovirus is blamed for Lovecraft's epidemic of madness, for the strange and eldritch creatures that roam the streets after dark, and for everything that the city leaders deem Heretical—born of the belief in magic and witchcraft. And for Aoife Grayson, her time is growing shorter by the day. Aoife Grayson's family is unique, in the worst way—every one of them, including her mother and her elder brother Conrad, has gone mad on their 16th birthday. And now, a ward of the state, and one of the only female students at the School of Engines, she is trying to pretend that her fate can be different. (Amazon)

I’ve seen this one in a few WoW’s before, but it just looks so good I thought I would repost about it on here.

This looks good!

Also - have resurrected my sadly, sadly neglected YA blog. I don't know if I'll manage to be as pro as a one Katie, but I"m hoping to revive it from it's previously pretty abysmal state.. haha.

Mockingjay got me back into a mood to be reading YA. Also, I want you to read The Maze Runner as I said via FB - I want to hear your thoughts!

Becca, I'm glad that Mockingjay got you back into YA, there is some great stuff out there. :) Happy blogging
