York by Laura Ruby
Release Date: May 16th, 2017 (This is going to be a good day for books.)

Forever a Soldier by Genevieve Turner
Release Date: December 12, 2016

 Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Release Date: March 7, 2017
Why I Added It: My friend Shae brought it to my attention. The synopsis captured me fully. It's fandom plus a Cinderella retelling. Who can resist that???

 Thick as Thieves by Megan Whalen Turner
Release Date: May 16, 2017
Why I Added It: I know I don't have to explain this to frequent readers but, IT IS MY FAVORITE SERIES. You may be wondering why it's a new addition to the TBR then. It's because I only officially add a book when it has a release date.

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Release Date: Currently Available
Why I Added It: My friend Rachel was highly enthusiastic about it as we were talking books one night while our kids were in choir practice. Then I found my friend Meggie also enjoyed it.

Release Date: Currently Available
Why I added It: I don't remember?????? Some one recommend it? I saw it at the library? It looks cute?

Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands
Release Date: Currently Available
Why I Added It: It's a sequel to The Blackthorn Key, which I read for Cybils last year and very much enjoyed. I had no idea there was a sequel until it showed up at the library.

Pretty Face by Lucy Parker
Release Date: February 1, 2017
Why I Added It: I read Parker's Act Like It earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. This one sounds good too.

And the book that does not yet have a cover.

Release Date: Sometime 2017
Why I Added it: It is a retelling of the Evil Queen from Snow White using Asian folklore and written by an own voices author. I. Can. Not. Wait. Also very much looking forward to seeing the cover for it.

Favorite Kissing Scenes

When thinking of a favorite things post I could do for February I decided it would have to be kissing. I've already done couples and I was feeling in the mood to do something fluffy and Valentine's related. So kisses it is. I read more MG than YA, and the YA I read tends to not focus on romance so this was actually harder than I expected it to be though a few jumped into my head right away. (And one of my choices does actually come from a MG book. One is adult. Gasp!) The actual scene from the book is quoted followed by my thoughts. The king lifted a hand to her cheek and kissed her. It was not a kiss between strangers, not even a kiss between a bride and a groom. It was a kiss between a man and his wife, and when it was over, the king closed his eyes and rested his forehead against the hollow of the queen's shoulder, like a man seeking respite, like a man reaching home at the end of the day . - The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner Turner doesn't write the


Shadowshaper  by Daniel José Older is everywhere. Best of lists. Award buzz. Blogs everywhere. It's one of those books everyone is reading and talking about. I had it on my TBR but decided I definitely needed to read it before the year was out just so I could weigh in on one of the most talked about books of 2015 if asked. It is deserving of every good thing said about it. Every. One. Sierra was looking forward to a relaxing summer break. Her plans involved hanging out with her friends and painting. They did not involve being chased by zombie like creatures and threatened by a magical power connected to her family's heritage she has never heard of. When murals begin fading all over her Brooklyn neighborhood, Sierra is perplexed. When her grandfather, who had a stroke, begins to apologize and starts repeating strange phases and insisting Sierra get the help of a boy she barely knows to help her finish her mural, Sierra is concerned but mostly about her grandfather. Then at a

Jinx's Fire

I have been a big fan of Jinx and company from the very first book, which felt like such a perfect Brandy book. The conclusion of Sage Blackwood's trilogy, Jinx's Fire , finished the story beautifully and is definitely my favorite of the three. Spoilers for first two books abound. Read those first: Jinx Jinx's Magic The Urwald is in danger from more than one direction and has no hope of defending itself if there is not unity amongst the people. Jinx, Sophie, Elfwyn, Wendell, and a dedicated group of others are working to make this happen as quickly as they can. Time is running out. At the same time, they are still dealing with the threat of the Bonemaster from within, and the Urwald's magic is fading. Where is it going? Can it be restored? And where has the Bonemaster put Simon? Jinx is the only one who can find the answers to these questions, and harnass the Urwald's power to save them all, but only if he is willing. Jinx has some serious attitude in this

Serafina and the Black Cloak

Serafina and the Black Cloak  by Robert Beatty is a thrilling tale of mystery and adventure set at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC in 1899. Having lived in Asheville and visited the house several times, there was no way I was going to pass up a chance to read this. (Also it's MG fantasy, always a bonus for me.) Serafina lives in secret in the basement of the Vanderbilt's spacious vacation home. She has lived there most of her life. Her father worked on the house as it was being built and is the mechanic who runs the massive generator and keeps the electricity going. Serafina is the chief rat catcher, slipping through the halls of her massive home secretly and quietly. She is light on her feet, sees well in the dark, and is quick enough to catch the vermin and keep them out. Serafina knows she if different and strange. Her father insists she stay hidden. But all that changes when one night Serafina witnesses a horrible crime. A little girl, a guest in the house, is fleein
