New Books Out This Week 4/21

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

By: Tom Leveen
17-year-old Tyler has had a crush on Becky since the first day of high school.  But he's with Sidney, not Becky.  His dream is to be a writer and when one of his Becky stories gets published in a literary journal, he's ecstatic.  But now he has to decide if he will finally act on his feelings.  I love Tom Leveen, he's awesome!
By: Sarah Strohmeyer
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cover... it's so pretty!!  Zoe lands an internship at Fairyland Kingdom, and has big dreams for this summer.  But when the internship ends up being anything but a fairy tale, Zoe doesn't know if she'll make it through.  Dubbed as The Devil Wears Prada set in Disney World.
By: Nicole Williams
Jude and Lucy are back in the third book in this New Adult series.
By: Stacey Kade
Ever since escaping from the genetics lab where she was created, Ariane has always followed the rules and flown under the radar.  She can't afford to stand out.  Recent events at her high school have changed all that and Ariane has suddenly caught the eye of the police chief's son.
By: Abbi Glines
Woods (from Fallen Too Far) is a guy who doesn't date girls with issues... he's in it just for fun, until he meets Della, a girl with a dark past and a lot of secrets.
By: Janet Gurtler
The story of Kya and Grace, two BFF's whose relationship is really put to the test.

Daruis & Twig
By: Walter Dean Myers
A story about friendship of Two boys, a track-star and a writer growing up in Harlem.

Unbreakable (Unraveling #2)
By: Elizabeth Norris
The sequel to Unraveling where Janelle finds out what happened to Ben and unravel a kidnapping ring in 5 days.

A Few Adult Titles That I'm Excited About:
Fly Away (Firefly Lane #2)
By: Kristin Hannah
The sequel that I didn't know was coming to Firefly Lane.  I really loved that book and it ended pretty sad, so I guess we'll find out what happens to Kate's kids.
 Wedding Night
By: Sophie Kinsella
It's about a "if we're both not married by the time we're ____ , we marry each other" pact.  Sophie Kinsella is always good for a funny book.

  • Chosen at Nightfall (Shadow Falls #5) By: C.C. Hunter- Final book in the Shadow Falls series.

  • Thumped (Bumped #2) By: Megan McCafferty- Sequel to the dystopian Bumped... LOVE Megan McCafferty!

Wow it's a good week!!!  I am excited to read Manicpixiedreamgirl and the Zoe book.  I also think the paperback cover of Keep Holding On is really cute!!  What are you into this week?


  1. I liked House of Secrets - it was very Harry Potter/Percy Jackson ish. Zoe was a cute, fun read too.

    1. I think it's awesome that Ned Vizzini started writing MG... I definitely think it would be a good fit for him :) You've read ZOE!! I'm jealous! I can't wait to read it!

  2. I literally DYING to get my hands on How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True!! Everything about it looks amazing - the cover, the synopsis, the reviews... I just can't. wait. anymore.... ><"
    I want to read Arclight too, mostly because of some really good review I've read.
    Thanks for posting this!!

    Sapir @ Diary of a Wimpy Teen Girl

    1. I can't wait to read Zoe! That cover is SO pretty!

  3. Unbreakable!!! Can't wait to get my hands on that book! Other than that, though, nothing remotely interesting, unless you count Arclight and Acid, but I don't know if I'll be getting them. And is it just me, or are there so many covers out there that need to have a girl and guy kissing? What happened to originality?

    Anyway, thanks for sharing this week's releases, Michelle!

    1. Yeah I'm sort of sick of a guy and a girls faces up close kissing or almost kissing... im bored! The Crash series by Nicole Williams is super yawn inducing, I wish they would've come up with something more exciting :(

  4. How Zoe Made Her Dreams (Mostly) Come True looks both very cute and funny, I'm definitely looking forward to reading that one! :)

    Alice @ Alice in Readerland

  5. Manicpixiedreamgirl looks awesome! What a title!

    I'm deffiantly getting Wedding Night! Love a good chick - flick!
