New Books Out This Week 1/27

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

By: Laurie Boyle Crompton
 I am SO excited for this book.  It's about a comic book girl who gets dumped and writes a comic featuring her ex as the villain.  He retaliates by sending out a "sext" that features her for the world to see.

By: Megan Shepherd
I don't really read historical fiction, but this one sounds intriguing.  It's about a girl who travels to a remote island to see if her father is really performing the gruesome experiments he was accused of... and the truth is even scarier than expected.

By: Kristin Halbrook
Described as "Bonnie and Clyde meets If I Stay by Gayle Forman"  It's about Zoe and Will who are in love and on the run.  I thought I would totally be dying for this book to come out, but I've heard a lot of mixed reviews.  I think the Bonnie and Clyde description is getting people's hopes up too much.

By: Brittany Geragotelis
I do not usually read books about witches, but this one I am!  I think it sounds adorable.  Brooklyn gets her powers on her 16th birthday, which she uses to get a makeover and get the attention of the popular crowd and a boy.

By: Liz Fichera
When a Native American girl named Fred joins the guys high-school golf team, she's not exactly taken in with open arms.  She took Seth's spot and his best friend Ryan knows he's gotta be loyal... but then he finds himself feeling drawn to Fred in a way he never expected.  I'm reading this now and I'm really starting to like YA that includes sports!

By: Jennifer Anne Davis
Audrey isn't sure what the voice she heard while she was kidnapped and assaulted was, but now that she's safe she feels like she needs to get away from it all.  She moves in with her aunt under a new identity and finds comfort in the twin guys next door.

By: Liane Shaw
A girl who was involved in an accident that left her best friend dead.  Now during her community service she meets a disabled girl that is unable to communicate & she feels like they can help each other overcome their obstacles.
By: Cat Clarke
Jem (LOVE that name) is in love with her gay best friend.  When he is outed online and kills himself, she knows she has to find out what happened... and make whoever did it pay.
By: Krista Ashe
When Noah's "notorious player" best friend Jake dies suddenly he finds himself dealing with not only grief, but a quest to find the mystery girl Jake apparently bought an engagement ring for.
Other Books Out This Week:

 There's a lot of cool books out this week... I'm dying to read Blaze and Undone.  What about you?  I like hearing what other people are looking forward to reading!


  1. Oh, jeez. Every week I see your list, and every week I want to read 75% of them. I can't wait to see your reviews on them, because I probably shouldn't buy anymore books this month... Sigh.

  2. There's so many good books coming out this week! :) I hadn't heard of The Color of Silence before, but it looks really interesting!
