Happy “where’d all my money go?” new release Tuesday, everyone!
As you know, the most exciting day of the week in this community is the day that follows the one we all dread (Mondays for the nope) and today we’re going to highlight some of the new books chipping away at our bank accounts — but each one is so worth it.
GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN by Talia Hibbert is a story that features heroine who is fat, chronically ill, and trying to spice up her life so she doesn’t die whilst being, gasp, boring. The key to help spice things up? The landlord in her complex; who may or may not be a soft boy but also not without his own sharp edges, too. We have both read and loved this and think you will, too! Check out our full thoughts here.
THE HOW & THE WHY by Cynthia Hand is a story told in dual perspectives alternating between a pregnant teen mother giving her child up for adoption and the child looking to discover where she came from. This story wrecked this reader (I should’ve kept a cry count) but loved the focus on the bright, miraculous, even luminous moments in life, even amongst all the sadness or tragedy that we still experience. Hollis’ review will be up tomorrow.
CALL DOWN THE HAWK by Maggie Stiefvater is out. It’s here! It’s live! Hollis has no idea when her special edition is going to arrive (grr arg) but hopefully said delay will help her super high expectations (spoiler : it probably won’t).
DEADLY LITTLE SCANDALS by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is the sequel (second installment?) to the author’s Debutantes series. These books have been highly enjoyable and if you’ve ever read Barnes, you’ll know why.
Unlike the circus in the author’s first book, THE STARLESS SEA by Erin Morgenstern did not arrive without warning. Many announcements preceded it. And it is now here, when yesterday it was not. This is the author’s sophomore release eight (!) years after THE NIGHT CIRCUS entered our lives. Hollis’ review will be live later today.
GIRLS OF STORM AND SHADOW is the second book in this Asian-inspired F/F YA fantasy. Book one finished with a bang so expectations are huge for the second installment — out today. There’s a double review coming for this one too but sadly it was problematic for us both.
Are there any titles out today you’re excited for? Let us know in the comments below!
