Three to Put on Your To-Read List
I really, really try to not read too far before books come out. It's tempting because I do have access to early review copies (though I don't request/receive at the rate of a lot of folks--that would simply overwhelm me), and sometimes I simply cannot resist and read waaaaaaay before a book's release date.
The following are three that I highly recommend you keep your eyes out for in a couple of months when they're released. (And, I promise, I'll write more about each once they're real books you can buy or snag at your library.)
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Disney Hyperion | Dec. 10, 2013
Were you a fan a Lost? Because These Broken Stars is perfect for Lost fans, with its twisty blend of science fiction, weird paranormalcy and reality-bending conspiracy. The romance is unusual and emotion-filled, particularly in its confrontation of class differences.
Ink is Thicker Than Water by Amy Spalding
Entangled Teen | Dec. 3, 2013
Do you ever complain that there aren't enough complex family relationships in young adult fiction? Then Amy Spalding's second novel, Ink is Thicker Than Water will definitely satisfy you. Lots of family stickiness are explored in this novel, and the messiness is absolutely fabulous.
Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott
Harlequin Teen | Jan. 28, 2014
Elizabeth Scott's upcoming Heartbeat is another novel which explores the complexity of family. In this book's case, loss, what-ifs and the tension between teenage disenfranchisement while at the same time being on the cusp of adulthood. It's so, so emotional and, at the same time, rather restrained.
