Sunny is trying to maintain her wealthy family’s picture-perfect façade after the death of her mother.

Out 2/27!  

I will never stop yelling about how much I love this book!! Where the Dark Stands Still has a little of everything you want in a book: the whimsy of Howl’s Moving Castle, the (less-steamy but still heart-pounding) romance of ACOTAR, the cursed wood and amazing worldbuilding of Uprooted, and the beautiful but deadly magical setting of An Enchantment of Ravens. If you like fantasy, Where the Dark Stands Still is a must-read!

  -Emily

Empowering, earnest, witty, and full of first-queer-crush yearning—this read is perfect for fans of Heartstopper!

Love, Off the Record cover image
Love, Off the Record by Samantha Markum

Out 6/11!

Love, Off the Record might go down in history as the book I gush about most! I read this DELIGHTFUL enemies-to-lovers romcom in one sitting, and quite literally couldn't put it down (even though I absolutely should've been sleeping instead of reading). Wynn and Three both have big goals and a lot to prove as freshmen staffers on their university newspaper, and when a rare reporter spot opens up unexpectedly, chaos ensues. Who will win the game of sabotage that pushes them to do their worst, and more importantly, will these two ever face their real feelings for each other?! If you're a fan of Lynn Painter, Rachel Lynn Solomon, or simply love a swoony, hilarious romcom (and who doesn't?) this book is 100% a must read!

-Amy

Past Present Future cover image
Past Present Future by Rachel Lynn Solomon

Out 6/4!  

Rachel Lynn Solomon is back with a romantic, dual POV sequel for anyone who wanted more of Rowan and Neil, which – let’s face it – is basically everyone and especially me. In Today Tonight Tomorrow, Rowan and Neil fell in love on the last day of high school, but now, summer is over and our favorite academic rivals-to-lovers couple is faced with a long-distance relationship during their first year of college. This is a can’t-miss romance for readers who like a dash of angst with their swoon!

  -Amelia

The Ballad of Darcy & Russell cover image
The Ballad of Darcy & Russell by Morgan Matson

Out 5/7!  

Prepare to swoon at the latest addition to Morgan Matson’s classic summer rom-com lineup!  Stranded at a rundown bus station on the way home from a music festival, Darcy has the cinematic meet-cute she’s been dreaming of when she locks eyes with Russell. As they explore a historical town in the middle of nowhere, picnic on a football field under the sunset, and chase after an escape-artist dog, they are led to wonder how well can you know someone after a day and whether an instant connection can ever last. Even if you don’t believe in love at first sight, it will take just one read for you to fall for Darcy and Russell.

Reckless cover image
Reckless by Lauren Roberts

Out 7/2!

I and MANY other readers have been at the edge of our seats waiting for this sequel! After the epic conclusion of Powerless, Paedyn and Kai’s journey is filled with even more twists and turns than ever before. Will duty or desire win in the end?! If July feels too far away, Powerful, a novella in the same universe coming out this Spring should satiate at least a little part of our curiosity—plus it comes with a special extended Reckless teaser!

-Remi

Another First Chance cover image
Another First Chance by Robbie Couch

Out 5/28!

If you're looking for a read that will rip your heart out and blindside you (in the best way), Robbie Couch's latest book is IT. Another First Chance will take you on a journey through first love, tragedy, a (possibly sinister) research study called the Affinity Trials, and make you reevaluate just how much you'd do for a fresh start with the one you love.

-Trey

The Blonde Dies First cover image
The Blonde Dies First by Joelle Wellington

Out 7/30!  

The Blonde Dies first is the perfect blend of Scream Queens, Scream (1996), Scary Movie (the first two), and The Blackening; equal parts horror and hilarity that makes for an electrically good time.

When Devon heads to her twin sister Drew’s graduation party with their circle of child good friends in tow, Devon expects a eye-rolling, but laughable night in bougie, gentrified Brooklyn. However, the party from bad to worse when Drew’s upper crust private school friends decide to play with fire in the form of a Ouija board. Suddenly,  the twins and their friends are followed by an entity who seems hell-bent on killing them, and with her Blonde braids, Devon is afraid –– because everyone knows the blonde always dies first.

I finished this book in one sitting and loved Joelle’s fresh take on old tropes and horror stereotypes while also exploring gentrification, found family, and the queer experience!

  -Ashley

Stranger Skies cover image
Stranger Skies by Pascale Lacelle

Out in Fall 2024!

Curious Tides by Pascale Lacelle was an amazing debut with a unique magic system, a dark atmosphere, and a tragic mystery. I’m so excited to see Pascale expand this world as Emory, Baz, Romie, and Kai uncover more answers to the mystery surrounding The Song of the Drowned Gods. I can already tell that Stranger Skies is going to be a book that will pull you under its spell and drown out the world around you as you dive deeper into its lore.

2/5: Cover Reveals Day 1


With Love, Echo Park by Laura Taylor Namey

From the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow, this novel follows two Cuban teens in LA’s Echo Park neighborhood who clash over their visions for the future, the secrets between their families…and the sparks flying between them.

Seventeen-year-old Clary is set to inherit her family’s florist shop, La Rosa Blanca—one of the last remnants of the Cuban business district that once thrived in Los Angeles’s Echo Park neighborhood. Clary knows Echo Park is where she’ll leave a legacy, and nothing is more important to her than keeping the area’s unique history alive.

Besides Clary’s florist shop, there’s only one other business left founded by Cuban immigrants fleeing Castro’s regime in the sixties and seventies. And Emilio, who’s supposed to take over Avalos Bicycle Works one day, is more flight risk than dependable successor. While others might find Emilio appealing, Clary can see him itching to leave now that he’s graduated, and she’ll never be charmed by a guy who doesn’t care if one more Echo Park business fades away.

But then Clary is caught off guard when an unexpected visitor delivers a shocking message from someone she thought she’d left behind. Meanwhile, Emilio realizes leaving home won’t be so easy—and Clary, who has always been next door, is who he confides in. As the summer days unfold, they find there’s something stronger than local history tying them together.

A Wild and Ruined Song by Ashley Shuttleworth

Arlo and her friends struggle to rally against an overwhelming foe before time runs out in this gripping final book in the Hollow Star Saga, the urban fantasy series about fae in Toronto that’s The Cruel Prince meets City of Bones!

Arlo Jarsdel has lost everything. Her family. Her freedom. Her name. And now that she’s sharing her body with Ruin, the formidable titan of devastation, she’s even beginning to lose herself.

In their most dangerous game of deception yet, Arlo has just one goal: destroy the three Bone Crowns corrupting the mortal and immortal realms before her time runs out and Ruin takes permanent control of her being.

With Celadon fighting on the political front against the ruthless High Queen Riadne—now armed with the cataclysmic power of her Crown, the Sins, and Ruin—Vehan and Aurelian are scrambling in secret to build an army to rival the Riadne’s infernal forces. Meanwhile, Nausicaä will do whatever it takes to save her girlfriend from obliteration, despite knowing the odds of survival are nearly nonexistent.

When the line between hero and villain becomes blurred, and bonds are put to the ultimate test, it has never been more imperative—or more difficult—to stand united. For this is not the first lifetime that these five friends have faced the evil behind this impending war, but if they can’t find their way back to each other, it might just be their last.

bridge across the sky by freeman ng

A raw and honest historical novel in verse about a Chinese teen who immigrates to the United States with his family and endures mistreatment at the Angel Island Immigration Station while trying to navigate his own course in a new world.

Tai Go and his family have crossed an ocean wider than a thousand rivers, joining countless other Chinese immigrants in search of a better life in the United States. Instead, they’re met with hostility and racism. Empowered by the Chinese Exclusion Act, the government detains the immigrants on Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay while evaluating their claims.

Held there indefinitely, Tai Go experiences the prison-like conditions, humiliating medical exams, and interrogations designed to trick detainees into failure. Yet amid the anger and sorrow, Tai Go also finds hope—in the poems carved into the walls of the barracks by others who have been detained there, in the actions of a group of fellow detainees who are ready to fight for their rights, in the friends he makes, and in a perceived enemy whose otherness he must come to terms with.

Unhappy at first with his father’s decision to come to the United States, Tai Go must overcome the racism he discovers in both others and himself and forge his own version of the American Dream.

2/6: Cover Reveals Day 2


stranger skies by pascale lacelle

Ninth House meets The Hazel Wood in this riveting sequel to the New York Times bestselling dark academia fantasy Curious Tides, following Emory, Baz, Romie, and Kai on their desperate quests through space and time!

Opening locked doors has a price—even for those who hold a key.

After going through the door that called to them both in dreams, Emory and Romie find themselves in the Wychwood: the same verdant world written of in Song of the Drowned Gods, albeit a twisted, rotting version of it. A sinister force has awoken with their arrival, intent on destruction as it spills across realms, and now Emory and Romie must stop it before it reaches their own shores.

Meanwhile, Baz and Kai are desperate to follow their friends through the door to other worlds, but a mishap pulls them back in time instead—where they come face to face with Cornus Clover himself, famed author of Song of the Drowned Gods. Stuck together in the past, they must navigate a very different Aldryn as they unravel the school’s darkest secrets.

Across time and worlds, Emory, Romie, Baz, and Kai find their fates eerily interwoven with the heroes from Clover’s book. But when stories can’t be trusted, friendships are put to the test, and deadly enemies are not always as they seem, they must decide who gets to be a hero—and who is desperate enough to see themselves become a villain.

the hysterical girls of st. bernadette’s by hanna alkaf

An all-girls private school is struck with mysterious cases of screaming hysteria in this chilling dark academia thriller haunted by a deeply buried history clawing to the light.

For over a hundred years, girls have fought to attend St. Bernadette’s, with its reputation for shaping only the best and brightest young women.

Unfortunately, there is also the screaming.

When a student begins to scream in the middle of class, a chain reaction starts that impacts the entire school. By the end of the day, seventeen girls are affected—along with St. Bernadette’s stellar reputation.

Khadijah’s got her own scars to tend to, and watching her friends succumb to hysteria only rips apart wounds she’d rather keep closed. But when her sister falls to the screams, Khad knows she’s the only one who can save her.

Rachel has always been far too occupied trying to reconcile her overbearing mother’s expectations with her own secret ambitions to pay attention to school antics. But just as Rachel finds her voice, it turns into screams.

Together, the two girls find themselves digging deeper into the school’s dark history, hunting for the truth. Little do they know that a specter lurks in the darkness, watching, waiting, and hungry for its next victim…

For a few beautiful months, Wes had his dream girl: strong-willed girl-next-door Liz. But right as the two were about to set off to UCLA to start their freshman year together, tragedy struck. Wes was left dealing with the fallout, which ultimately meant losing Liz in the process.

Wes knows Liz better than anyone, and he has a foolproof plan to win her back with the rom-com worthy big gestures she loves. Only…Liz will have none of it. Wes has to scheme like a rom-com hero to figure out how to see her. Even worse, Liz has a new friend…a guy friend.

Still, Wes won’t give up, adapting his clever plans and going hard to get Liz’s attention and win back her affection. But after his best efforts get him nowhere, Wes is left wondering if their relationship is really over for good.

how to lose a best friend by jordan k. casomar

When a teen expresses romantic interest in his best friend, her unexpected reaction sends their relationship into a tailspin in this heartfelt and honest novel giving a new look at first love—and outcomes that aren’t happily ever after.

Zeke’s world is crashing down around him, but there’s one thing—or rather one person—keeping him afloat. Imogen. His ride or die. His day one homie. His best friend. The only thing that has kept him from asking Imogen out is her parent’s “no dating until sixteen” rule. Now with Imogen’s sixteenth birthday around the corner, Zeke can finally be her boyfriend.

Only, Imogen doesn’t seem to be in tune the unspoken understanding Zeke thought they had: that in their will-they-won’t-they, they definitely would. Instead, Imogen starts going out with her crush, Trevor, and Zeke makes it his mission to show her she made the wrong choice.

Meanwhile, Imogen has been thrown off-kilter by everyone’s reactions to her move in the game she didn’t know she was playing. Suddenly, she’s hit with accusations of leading Zeke on for years, and she doesn’t even have a best friend to lean on after finding out Zeke was always counting down the days until their friendship could turn romantic—shattering her trust.

Tensions reach a boiling point at a disastrous party, and Zeke insists Imogen choose between him and Trevor. Torn between the easy option and following her heart, Imogen makes the only call she can…but is she prepared for the consequences?

‘Tis the season for holiday hijinks in the newest sapphic rom-com about a rising star and a small town girl going on twelve fake holidates from the New York Times bestselling authors of She Gets the Girl, Rachael Lippincott and Alyson Derrick!

Twelve days of fake dates. Two holidays. One chance to convince everyone they’re in love.

Arden James is Hollywood’s hottest teen actor. Infamously reckless, she’s a constant in the tabloids. But when her messy reputation costs her an audition for her dream role, Arden and her publicist make up a lie to flip the script. Only, for the lie to work, she’ll have to head home for the holidays for the first time in four years.

Caroline Beckett has spent those last four years shining up a stellar portfolio that will get her into a top journalism program and convincing herself she could not be less interested in what her former best friend and first crush has been up to since she left without a word. But when Arden suddenly shows up at her doorstep with the promise of a real byline in Cosmopolitan in exchange for a write up on their “secret romance” and twelve snow-covered holidates in their Christmas-obsessed hometown, Caroline can’t help but be tempted into playing along.

It should be easy enough to stand each other for twelve days to make their dreams come true, right? But when old feelings start to bubble up, so do new holiday wishes that might just have Arden and Caroline falling faster than that Christmas Eve snow…

the ballerina of auschwitz by dr. edith eva eger

In this young adult edition of the bestselling, award-winning memoir The Choice, Holocaust survivor and renowned psychologist Dr. Edith Eger shares her harrowing experiences and gives readers the gift of hope and strength.

Edie is a talented dancer and a skilled gymnast with hopes of making the Olympic team. Between her rigorous training and her struggle to find her place in a family where she’s the daughter “with brains but no looks,” Edie’s too busy to dwell on the state of the world. But life in Hungary in 1943 is dangerous for a Jewish girl.

Just as Edie falls in love for the first time, Europe collapses into war, and Edie’s family is forced onto a train bound for the Auschwitz concentration camp. Even in those darkest of moments, Edie’s beloved, Eric, kindles hope. “I’ll never forget your eyes,” he tells her through the slats of the cattle car. Auschwitz is horrifying beyond belief, yet through starvation and unthinkable terrors, dreams of Eric sustain Edie. Against all odds, Edie and her sister Magda survive, thanks to their sisterhood and sheer grit.

Edie returns home filled with grief and guilt. Survival feels more like a burden than a gift—until Edie recognizes that she has a choice. She can’t change the past, but she can choose how to live and even to love again.

2/9: Cover Reveals Day 5


inheritance of scars by crystal seitz

House of Roots and Ruin meets The Darkest Part of the Forest in this gorgeous dark fantasy debut steeped in Norse mythology that follows a teen who accidentally awakens an imprisoned draugr and must follow him into a deadly magical forest to rescue her grandmother.

Never go beyond the stave church.

Within Tiveden Forest, bloodthirsty monsters known as draugr lurk behind every tree, and secrets run through the soil like twisted roots. When her grandmother vanishes into the forest, Astrid won’t let Crohn’s disease get in the way of finding her. But in searching for her lost loved one, Astrid soon uncovers an even greater mystery:

A conflict that’s haunted her village and family for generations.
An ancient blood oath her ancestor made to protect them.
A deadly draugr imprisoned for centuries…who Astrid accidentally awakens.

Newly revived, Soren first mistakes Astrid for her ancestor, his ex-lover turned enemy. Astrid can’t tell if he would rather kill her or kiss her. But Soren knows the forest better than anyone, and Astrid quickly realizes that she’ll need his help to rescue her grandmother.

The deeper they venture into Tiveden, the closer Astrid gets to the cold, alluring Soren and the truth behind her grandmother’s disappearance. To save her home, a dark ritual must be performed before Midwinter—and only Astrid can fulfill her ancestor’s blood oath…or break it.

That is, if Soren—or the forest—doesn’t break Astrid first.

Last Violent Call by Chloe Gong

Return to the romantic intrigue with two captivating novellas surrounding the events of Foul Lady Fortune and following a familiar cast of characters from the These Violent Delights Duet!

Mysteries of Thorn Manor cover image
Mysteries of Thorn Manor by Margaret Rogerson

Elizabeth recommends Mysteries of Thorn Manor by Margaret Rogerson.

 

An enchanted manor with a mind of its own, ice skating in the middle of the night, and a brawl against evil pajamas… what’s not to love? In this sequel novella to Sorcery of Thorns, Elisabeth Scrivener is settling into her new  life with charismatic Nathaniel Thorn. But as public interest in the sorcerer and librarian’s romance grows more intrusive, the Thorn estate’s magical wards begin doing their job a little too well to the point of trapping all residents inside. Cozy fantasy’s comfort couple will have you blushing/giggling/kicking your feet as they untangle the manor’s secrets before the Midwinter Ball. If you’re looking for the literary equivalent of wrapping yourself up in a fluffy blanket with a cup of hot cocoa, you’ll find it in Mysteries of Thorn Manor.

Bonesmith cover image
Bonesmith by Nicki Pau Preto

Emily recommends Bonesmith by Nicki Pau Preto.

 

Bonesmith is Gideon the Ninth meets Throne of Glass meets The Witcher. I mean, what more do you want from a dark YA fantasy book?! In Bonesmith, exiled Wren teams up with her sworn enemy to venture into a haunted wood to rescue a kidnapped prince and reclaim her family’s respect. Along the way, she and fights and falls for her reluctant enemy-turned-partner Julian, and discovers an even bigger conspiracy at play. I’m already counting down the days until the sequel, Ghostsmith, is released next summer!

Their Vicious Games cover image
Their Vicious Games by Joelle Wellington

Antonella recommends Their Vicious Games by Joelle Wellington.

 

Their Vicious Games is a page turning thriller that everyone from Simon Teen has been obsessed with since the second we heard about it. This is perfect for fans of The Bachelor and The Hunger Games where our main character Adina must enter a competition between 11 other girls in order to regain her Ivy League acceptance.

Betting on You cover image
Betting on You by Lynn Painter

Amelia recommends Betting on You by Lynn Painter.

 

This is the PERFECT book for rom-com lovers. Romance queen Lynn Painter is back with a swoon-worthy rom-com in the vein of She’s All That, 10 Things I Hate About You, and When Harry Met Sally. Seventeen-year-old Bailey unwittingly finds herself at the center of a bet while working at a waterpark with cynical Charlie, who is her polar opposite. We have enemies to friends to lovers. We have fake dating. We have secret bets. We have yearning and pining. We have excellent banter and Taylor Swift references. What more could you possibly want in a romance?

Miles Morales Suspended cover image
Miles Morales Suspended by Jason Reynolds and Zeke Peña

Shirley recommends Miles Morales: Suspended by Jason Reynolds.

 

You don’t need Spidey-Senses to know that Miles Morales is our new favorite Spider-Man (sorry, Tom Holland)! Alas, a hero’s job is never done, and Miles Morales: Suspended finds Miles facing unexpected challenges as a fierce threat looms—all while trying to impress his crush and save the world from book censorship. A perfect mix of poetry and prose, you don’t have to have seen every last Marvel movie to enjoy this gripping read (although if you still haven’t watched the Spiderverse movies, this is your sign to do so)!

Foul Heart Huntsman cover image
Foul Heart Huntsman by Chloe Gong

Remi recommends Foul Heart Huntsman by Chloe Gong.

 

The epic Foul Lady Fortune duology comes to an end in this addicting sequel! I loved Foul Heart Huntsman and would definitely recommend it as a gift for this holiday season (especially if they have already read books from Chloe Gong’s Secret Shanghai Series!). It has action, it has heart, it has mystery, and it continues the romance between one of my favorite tragic couples, Rosalind and Orion. Better yet, gift it along with the first book, Foul Lady Fortune!
