Today I am celebrating my birthday with the family (april 17th is my real birthday.) I got a lot of present and the money will be spended on - ofcourse - books! Haha. I will show you the books I got when I bought them on the internet. But for now, I got three books on Netgalley I want to show you.

SeraphinaTitle: Seraphina.
Author: Rachel Hartman.
Pages: 464.
Expected publication: July 19th 2012.
Publisher: Random House Children's Books.             

Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high. Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen's Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life.

BlackbirdsTitle: Blackbirds.
Author: Chuck Wendig.
Pages: 384.
Expected publication: April 24th 2012.
Publisher: Angry Robot.

Miriam Black knows when you will die. She’s foreseen hundreds of car crashes, heart attacks, strokes, and suicides. But when Miriam hitches a ride with Louis Darling and shakes his hand, she sees that in thirty days Louis will be murdered while he calls her name. Louis will die because he met her, and she will be the next victim. No matter what she does she can’t save Louis. But if she wants to stay alive, she’ll have to try.

Title: The shapeshifter's secret.
Author: Heather Ostler.
Pages: 328.
Expected publication: June 12th 2012.
Publisher: Cedar Fort.

Julia is finally discovering what–not who–she is. Like any sixteen-year-old, Julia's used to dealing with problems. From her overprotective father to her absent mother to a teacher who definitely has it in for her. But everything changes when Julia's reactions become oddly vicious and angry---more animal than human. This action-packed adventure has it all: humor, romance, and a plot that will keep you guessing to the very last page.

So thanks to the publishers! :D
