Soul Thief (Demon Trapper's #2) by Jana Oliver
Riley Blackthorne’s adventures continue in the second spellbinding Demon Trappers novel, as she battles demons… and a love that could destroy her
At the start of the second thrilling installment of the Demon Trappers series, 17-year-old Riley Blackthorne has about had it up to here. After the devastating battle at the Tabernacle, trappers are dead and injured, her sweet boyfriend Simon is gravely injured, and now her beloved late father’s been illegally poached from his grave by a very powerful necromancer. Add to the mix: Ori, one sizzling hot freelance demon hunter who’s made himself Riley’s unofficial body guard, and Beck, a super over-protective “friend” who acts more like a grouchy granddad, and Riley’s almost ready to leave Atlanta altogether.
But as the demon count in Atlanta increases, the already crippled Trappers Guild has its hands full, and, when the Vatican finally sends its own Demon Hunters to take care of the city’s “little” problem, pandemonium breaks loose. Only Riley knows that she might be the center of Hell’s attention: an extremely powerful Grade 5 demon is stalking her, and her luck can't last forever. As Riley’s life becomes a dangerous balancing act, will she be strong enough not to tip? And who will be there to catch her if she falls?Why I need this: I loved the first novel The Demon Trapper's Daughter and I just have to continue on the journey and see how Beck and Riley figure out the world without Paul (Riley's father) to help guide them. Both Riley and Beck were such amazing characters and had great voices. Can't wait for this one to be out!
Soul Thief (Demon Trappers #2) is out August 30, 2011 by St. Martin's Griffin.

I haven't actually read the first one yet but I own it and have read good things so of course I need to head on with the second one. Plus I love that it's inspired by The Snow Queen.

Past Perfect by Leila Sales
A summer job is exactly the distraction that Chelsea needs in order to finally get over Ezra, the boy who dumped her on her a** and broke her heart to pieces just a few weeks before. So when Chelsea's best friend, Fiona, signs them up for roles at Essex Historical Colonial Village, Chelsea doesn't protest too hard, even though it means spending the summer surrounded by drama geeks and history nerds. Chelsea will do anything to forget Ezra.
But when Chelsea and Fiona show up for their new jobs, they find out Ezra's working there too. Maybe Chelsea should have known better than to think a historical reenactment village could help her escape her past. ...or will this turn out to be exactly the summer that Chelsea needed, after all?Why I need this: How cute is this plot? I love that in order to stop thinking about her boyfriend, she gets a job at a re-enactment village only for her old boyfriend to be working there too. Adorable concept, adorable cover. I am so there!
