  1. Pretty Little Dead Things looks like a good read, I’ve noticed it when it came out in the UK.I’ve read a few other Angry Robot titles and think they are a great publisher!

  2. The Lost Saint is the one that interests me most, though there are several other good-looking YA releases out there today, also.
