NEW RELEASE TUESDAY – FEBRUARY 11, 2020

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.


WHEN YOU SEE ME, book eleven in the Detective D.D Warren series by Lisa Gardner, feels like a direct continuation to book ten. This isn’t one of those mystery/procedural series I think you can just jump into but Gardner always does enough catch-up on backstory that you could probably stumble along without too many questions. This wasn’t Hollis’ favourite of the series but she still enjoyed reuniting with all the familiar faces. Expect her full review tomorrow!

BOOK OF ORLANDO by Laura Lascarso actually released on February seventh but this is our first chance to truly celebrate it. This is the first in a paranormal trilogy about angels, devils, and so much more. It’s a little dark, a whole lot queer, and hot as hell. Check out Hollis’ review here.

AN EVERYDAY HERO by Laura Trentham is, per Micky’s review, “this heartwarming story has all the feels and is almost guaranteed to make your eyes leak. [..] This isn’t a dramatic, high action military romance, it is the quiet, sneak up on your feelings type and I couldn’t be happier about that.”

ALONE IN THE WILD by Kelley Armstrong is the fifth book in the Rockton series, about an off-the-grid town in the Yukon. Rockton is a town populated by people who have escaped horrors, are on the run from something in their pasts, and have found a place where they can disappear for a few years. This is one of Hollis’ current favourite series, by a favourite author, but this installment wasn’t as great as previous ones. Her review will be up tomorrow.

THE GRAVITY OF US by Phil Stamper is a story about a space mission, social media, and first love. Hollis didn’t end up loving this one but it’s got a cute cover and it’s queer and she’s sure it’ll do the trick for many readers. Review to come.

THE KING OF CROWS is the final book in the Diviners series by Libba Bray. Hollis read book one a million years ago and meant to reread, and continue in the lead-up to this release, but.. welp. I smell a binge a’coming, though! If you don’t know, this is a paranormal historical fiction series set in the 1920’s New York. Are you excited? No spoilers please!

SMAILHOLM by C.L. Williams is a middle grade fantasy that really emulates the vibes of The Hobbit. It’s set in historical Scotland and it tells the story of Wynn, a girl entering her teens who is a lady-to-be from Smailholm tower. She has a secret, she visits a hidden village where the people are very small. The story has mystery and a range of beings to find out about. This was an enjoyable read and Micky’s review will be coming this week.

WHITEOUT by Adriana Anders brings a slice of chalk and cheese from us both as we double reviewed this. One of us loved it, the other not so much. It is set in the Antarctic with a grouchy professor/scientist and a peppy chef at the base station. It’s a fast-paced romantic suspense with lots of story behind it. Look out for our contrasting review.

IN RESTLESS DREAMS by Wren Handman is a YA fae-specific fantasy featuring a young girl, recently relocated to a new city, and a new school, who discovers she holds powers that can remake the very fabric of Fairy by just dreaming up something new.

Do we even need to say more than “Lucy Parker” for you to get excited? Probably not. Happy belated birthday to HEADLINERS, which came out yesterday, and marks the fifth book in the London Celebrities series than neither of us can get enough of. Check out our full squishy happy thoughts here.

TWEET CUTE by Emma Lord is a YA contemporary debut and oh man was it charming, full of feels, snark, and cheese. Literal cheese of the grilled variety. Hollis loved this one a ton and you catch her thoughts from last week’s blog tour here.

TOUGH GUY by Rachel Reid actually came out yesterday so happy belated to book three in the author’s Game Changers series! This particular match up isn’t a coming out story and, like book one, features a hockey player and a non-hockey player romance. You can check out Hollis’ review here.

LUCKY CALLER by Emma Mills is out today and contemporary fans can rejoice at a spectacular way to kick off the new year! A review with Hollis’ full thoughts will be posted tomorrow.

LOVE HER OR LOSE HER by Tessa Bailey is book two in her Hot and Hammered series. Neither of us loved book one, FIX HER UP (sorry, baby girl), but this one surprised and delighted us both! Look for our review by the end of the week.

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.

LOVE LETTERING by Kate Clayborn is a story with opposites attract, fonts, whimsy, a nerdy socially awkward hero.. if you aren’t already a fan of Clayborn (which, like, what), this will make you one. Also, I would recommend keeping this safe until tomorrow because if you try to pick it up tonight.. you might as well cancel your New Years Eve plans.

THE ONE FOR YOU by Roni Loren is the final book in The Ones Who Got Away series that is set in a backdrop of the aftermath of a highschool shooting and featuring certain characters who survived, but maybe aren’t exactly thriving, a decade later. Both of us have followed this series of interconnected characters and couples and we are here for the finale featuring Kincaid and Ashton.
