There are a ton of great books releasing in January! We thought we’d give our readers a chance to win some of the titles that are creating a lot of buzz. There’s a nice mix of ARCs and pretty finished copies in this bundle for the lucky winner.
Return to Me by Justina Chen – And there it was again, the troubling notion that I barely knew the people I loved. That’s the quote from the back of this book by the much-praised author of North of Beautiful, and it’s another contemporary novel that unravels complicated family ties.
Falling for You by Lisa Schroeder – Abusive relationships are always tough to read, but judging from my friend Penny’s reaction, this one has some uplifting moments as well. I just started reading this, and I think fans of the author’s previous novels (and maybe Simone Elkeles) will enjoy.
The Different Girl by Gordon Dahlquist – Four girls shipwrecked on an island have to deal when another girl is suddenly introduced into their midst. This book apparently is a mix of dystopian/contemporary and the premise lends itself to all kinds of interesting scenarios. (Ooops, this is a February release! Oh, well.)
Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans– The raves are pouring in for Lenore’s debut! I had more mixed reactions to some of the story elements, but this book is certainly a very fun, fast-paced read. Definitely worth checking out if you’re a sci-fi fan, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the story develops in Level 3. Including what has happened to one of the mysteriously disappearing main characters…
Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz – Remote islands. Screaming oceans. Magical gay fish. Could this story sound any more intriguing? I love the title and cover art for this book, and I think it’s about time we had a gay mermaid/merboy. This will be the first book by this author that I’ve read, and it’ll be fun to see if the author’s funny, quirky online personality translates to her books.
