New Books Out This Week 1/13

These are the new books I'm obsessing over this week:

By: Justina Chen
Rebecca planned to go to college far far away from her family, so she's going on the opposite side of the country.  Right before she's leaving, her dad drops a bomb.  He got a new job and they're going with her... great.  With her boyfriend living back on the other side of the country, her dad drops another bomb, a betrayal.  And now Rebecca doesn't know if she can trust anyone.
By: Erica Lorraine Scheidt
A powerful, gritty book about a girl who is given a horrible role model for a mother and now uses boys as a way to feel loved.  I read this about a month or so ago and I really loved the way this author just put it all out there... my review will be out this week :)
By: Kim Askew & Amy Helmes
A modern-day MacBeth retelling in Alaska.  These are the same authors who put out Tempestuous about a month ago.

By: Steven Parlato
After the suicide of his father, Evan can't be bothered with school or really anything anymore.  He's considered the top student at his school and some even think he's a genius, but all he can think about is how depressed he is.  Then his grandmother give him a key to a chest that his father locked away a long time ago.  In it Even discovers why he couldn't save his dad.  This sounds pretty deep.
Touch of Death
By: Kelly Hashway
A normal high school junior finds out that she was born under the 13th sign of the Zodiac and is a descendant of Medusa.  Now she has to leave behind the people in her life to save her own kind from Hades and extinction.  Not really my style of book, but for some reason it caught my attention.
Beautiful Things Never Last
By: Steph Campbell
A New Adult book & the follow up to Grounding Quinn.

By: Lenore Appelhans
"Three levels. Two loves. One choice. Debut novelist, Lenore Appelhans has written a thrilling otherworldly young adult novel about a place that exists between our world (Level 1) and what comes after life (Level 2)." -Goodreads description.
By: Kaleb Nation
Conspiracy theories, supernatural organizations, assassination attempts, and the world and the world may be completely different than we've been led to believe.  Matrix-like if you ask me.
So there it is, the list for this week.  Some good ones... I personally want to read The Namesake and Return to Me, how about you?
