TTT: Books on My Winter TBR

This week's TTT topic: Books on My Winter TBR

Shadowed Heart by Laura Florand (December) This is a rare thing-a sequel to a romance that is about the same couple as the original (The Chocolate Heart) and I absolutely can not wait. Florand is superb with character development and Luc and Summer are two of her more complex characters.

Party Lines by Emma Barry (January 12) This one is a CAMPAIGN romance. Democrat boy, Republican girl, opposite teams: this should be a whole lot of fun. And there will probably be amazing banter because its Emma Barry and there's that set-up.

Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols (January 13) I read the first book in the Senior Superlatives earlier and LOVED it. It was my first Jennifer Echols experience and I have been making my way through her backlist. I'm most interested to see what she will do with this couple.

All the Answers by Kate Messner (January 27) I adore Messner's books and they are such easy sells to  MG readers I know. Also, I've already heard a ton of great things about this book.

Love, Lucy by April Lindner (January 27) I haven't read any of Lindner's other books, but this one is a retelling of A Room with a View so I have no power to resist it.

Beastkeeper by Cat Hellisen (February 3) Any regular reader of this blog knows I have a weak spot for fairy tale retellings and since Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale....and this is gender swapped.

 I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios (February 3) I adored Demetrios' Something Real. She is an excellent writer of realistic fiction, and the letter she wrote that went with the ARCs to this is amazing.

Villain Keeper by Laurie McKay (February 3) There are so many books about kids who are transported to the real world from a magical land. I love that this is the reverse of that. And that it takes place in Asheville,NC!

Listen Slowly by Tanhha Lai (February 17) It's a new Tanhha Lai book. I don't need any other reasons.

Death Marked by Leah Cypess (March 3) I am wary about where this is going to take the story, but absolutely unable to resist its allure.

What are you looking forward to reading this winter?

I didn't realize that Love, Lucy is a retelling of Room With A View. I just got an ARC of it but had never heard of it before.

Beastkeeper seems absolutely magical. I hope you enjoy reading the books =)

Oh me too. It's so beautiful. I've been able to teach it too and love the way kids respond to her writing.

Shorter Musings MG Fantasy

Here are some shorter musings on recent MG fantasy reads. Anya and the Dragon   by Sofiya Pasternack This book is fun. It is a book full of adventure, an obvious bad guy, some more complicated morally gray area characters, and a strong, brave heroine. It is also a book about friendships, community, and fighting for what is right. All things that usually work for me really well. While I enjoyed this, I did feel it was a little overlong and there were certain plot points at the end I didn't love. However, there were things I thought were done really well, such as Anya's Jewish faith and the idea that power needs to be challenged. In the end it was a middle of the road read for me, but it is one I will certainly be recommending to dragon and fantasy adventure lovers I know! R is for Rebel   by J. Anderson Coats This is tough because I usually really like Coats's books. I had such a hard time with this one though on so many levels. It's difficult to get into because t

Future Favorite Friday: June 2018

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments. Two Naomis  was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so I was understandably excited it's getting a sequel.  In this sequel to  Two Naomis , now that Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi E.’s dad are married, the girls have learned to do a lot of things together, like All-Family Sunday dinners, sixth-grade homework, navigating the subway system by themselves, and visiting their favorite bakeries. Until sixth grade in a new school presents a whole new set of surprises and challenges. Trusting her gut has worked for Naomi E. all her life, and she figures that it will be an asset to her role as a Peer Mediator—until she realizes how much of the job requires the Art of Compromise, which she’s only just starting to get used to at home. Naomi Marie i

The Reece Malcolm List

The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding surprised me. Enough people I trust enjoyed it so I knew I would like it, but wasn't expecting to like it as much as I do. It is a really great book that is fun and has real heart and soul too. Synopsis: Things I know about Reece Malcolm: 1. She graduated from New York University. 2. She lives in or near Los Angeles. 3. Since her first novel was released, she’s been on the New York Times bestseller list every week. 4. She likes strong coffee and bourbon. 5. She’s my mother. Devan knows very little about Reece Malcolm, until the day her father dies and she’s shipped off to live with the mother she’s never met. All she has is a list of notebook entries that doesn’t add up to much. L.A. offers a whole new world to Devan—a performing arts school allows her to pursue her passion for show choir and musicals, a new circle of friends helps to draw her out of her shell, and an intriguing boy opens up possibilities for her first love. But the

Ash & Bramble

I have established that I love fairy tales and fairy tale retellings. You know what else I love? Books written by Sarah Prineas. Both her MG series are great favorites of mine. When she happened to mention on Twitter long ago that she was working on a YA, I followed closely eager to read whatever the result was. Ash & Bramble  is a fabulous work of genius. (I consider Sarah a friend as well as an author I love, and she sent me the ARC I'm reviewing here.) Pin lives in the Godmother's fortress sewing clothes with the other seamstresses tasked with producing the beautiful one of a kind ballgowns the Godmother uses for her mysterious purposes. Pin has no memories of her life prior to the day she begins her work as a slave to the Godmother's will. Everything that came before is a blank nothing. While she has no memories, she is still a person with a will and a fierce defiance to live her own life. She gets a chance to plan an escape when she is used as a foot model for
