The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by Harlequin Teen  

You will kill. The only question is when.

In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their "pets." In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive.

Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero...and turned vampire.

Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She's passing for human...for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love.
 
There are some people who are tired of vampires. I am not one of them. If an author can write them well enough, I'll love it regardless, and I'm 100% positive that Julie Kagawa can write whatever she wants and it will still turn out amazing. The good news? I already know I won't have to force the people I work with at the bookstore to sell this. They love Julie Kagawa, too :D 

Cold Fury by
Expected publication: July 24th 2012 by Putnam Juvenile 
 
 
Sara Jane Rispoli is just a normal sixteen-year-old girl coping with school and a developing crush— until her parents and younger brother are kidnapped, and she discovers her family has been a key figure of Chicago’s Outfit (aka the mob) for decades. Her father, grandfather and great grandfather all used their special ability, cold fury, to settle disputes between the two mob factions—the muscle and the money. And unless Sara wants the mob to think her now missing family has turned state’s evidence, she will have to fill her father’s shoes as the mob’s peacemaker, using her own cold fury.
 
This just sounds so original and unlike anything I've ever read before. And I've read a lot of good things about it :)

  3. Can't wait for Immortal Rules, too! Julie Kagawa is such an amazing writer.

    I haven't heard of a YA mob book before (I don't think), very original. I'll have to add it to my list. Thanks for sharing :))

  5. I've been told that The Immortal Rules will be appearing on Netgalley about a month before the release date. I'm sure tons of people will request!

    Cold Fury sounds really interesting too.
