Evergreen by Brenda Pandos
I read Everblue, the first book in the Mer Tales series, this past summer and loved it! It was so much fun, because not only did it contain a suspenseful and unique plot, but some incredible main characters. Therefore, I can't wait to read Evergreen. Don't you just love the cover for it? I know I do!A kingdom on the brink of war.A king on the fringes of insanity.A family running for their lives.
Ash and Fin’s only desire is to be together and dive into their happily ever after, though their conflicting worlds work to pull them apart. Neither is ready to convert to the other’s life: become a human or a mer. Little do they know that somewhere in Natatoria a secret holds the fine fabric of everyone’s lives together. If the truth is discovered, Ash and Fin will no longer have the luxury of waiting. They’ll be forced to choose. But will it be for loyalty or love? Or will someone else make the choice for them if they can’t decide?Enter the watery world of treachery, greed, and the binding mer kiss as the story continues with Evergreen, book two of Mer Tales.

Lucid by P.T. Michelle
Nara Collins is an average sixteen-year-old, with one exception: every night she dreams the events of the following day. Due to an incident in her past, Nara avoids using her special gift to change fate…until she dreams a future she can’t ignore.I'm really, really loving the cover of this one! The background in gorgeous and makes me crave fall. I'm actually in the middle of reading Brightest Kind of Darkness (review forthcoming!) right now and I'm really enjoying it so far! :)
After Nara prevents a bombing at Blue Ridge High, her ability to see the future starts to fade, while people at school are suddenly being injured at an unusually high rate.
Grappling with her diminishing powers and the need to prevent another disaster, Nara meets Ethan Harris, a mysterious loner who seems to understand her better than anyone. Ethan and Nara forge an irresistible connection, but as their relationship heats up, so do her questions about his dark past.
