Keeping An Eye #4

Keeping An Eye is a feature on my blog where I would post about the new releases for the next two weeks which I would be looking forward to.

This week I have another a paranormal YA and a YA contemporary romance.
My two favourite genres ^^

Title: Something Strange And Deadly
Author: Susan Dennard
Series: Something Strange And Deadly #1
Genre: Paranormal YA
Release Date: 24th July 2012 (Hardcover)
Goodreads Description: The year is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper— The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother. Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

Title: Pushing The Limits
Author: Katie McGarry
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 31st July 2012 (Hardcover) / 3rd August 2012 (Paperback)
Goodreads Description: So wrong for each other...and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.

But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

 Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

I've heard of Something Strange And Deadly since a couple of months ago and it's really kinda stuck in my head. Historical stories are not my first choice though, as history just sounds boring to me. Reminds me of Anna Dressed in Blood, but I'm not sure if they're any alike since I've read neither.
Pushing The Limits is something that caught my attention because of the high ratings. Mainly. With over 50% rating 5 out of 5. Like, wow. It'll be a sin to miss this kind of book right? It's really intriguing, so I'm actually quite looking forward to getting my hands on it.
A more varied match this time round, which would be your pick?
