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.
THE MAP FROM HERE TO THERE by Emery Lord is a much unexpected (and also nonetheless anticipated) sequel to the author’s 2015 release THE START OF ME AND YOU. Whereas Hollis only read the latter upon hearing of the sequel’s release, and didn’t love it, she actually really loved the sequel. You can read her full thoughts later this week.
A HEART SO FIERCE AND BROKEN by Brigid Kemmerer, on the other hand, is the much anticipated and expected sequel in the Cursebreakers series. Book one wasn’t a big hit for either of us but this sequel went in very interesting directions and made for a more enjoyable, though not perfect, ride. Check out Hollis’ review tomorrow.
THE NIGHT COUNTRY by Melissa Albert is yet another fantasy sequel readers have been waiting for. If you like your fairytales dark and twisty, this is definitely the series for you! This is another one we have a review for so check back on friday for Hollis’ full thoughts.
LOVEBOAT, TAIPEI by Abigail Hing Wen offers fun and frolicks from the US to Taiwan. It’s definitely a mature YA and set in Taipei. The Taiwanese summer camp makes for a memorable read but amidst the fun there are some serious topics. Micky will have a review coming for this. It’s also the first in a series.
JANE ANONYMOUS by Laurie Faria Stolarz is a most unusual contemporary YA that features a kidnapping of a teen and life afterwards as she tries to reintegrate into society. If you seek tension and a thriller ride, this should be a compelling read.
