Lies About Truth by Courtney C. Stevens. Published by Harper Collins 11/03/15.
I read Courtney’s debut novel Faking Normal at the beginning of this year and absolutely fell in love with her writing and characters. I cannot wait to see how amazing this book will be (:
Sadie Kingston, is a girl living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can’t move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent’s brother, Max.
As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she’s unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him — even if Max is able to look at her scars and not shy away. But when the truth about the accident and subsequent events comes to light, Sadie has to decide if she can embrace the future or if she’ll always be trapped in the past. (from Goodreads.com)
Winter (Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer. Published by Feiwel & Friends 11/10/15.
The final installment to The Lunar Chronicles (I’m not crying, you’re crying). My most anticipated book of 2015. 800 pages. Am I ready? Are any of us ready? We shall see.
Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.
Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend–the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters? (from Goodreads.com)
November 9 by Colleen Hoover. Published by Atria Books 11/10/15
I will read anything this woman writes. Colleen is fantastic at her craft. She writes characters with so much heart and reality that you can equate them to people you know. Looking forward to loving this as much as I have Confess, Maybe Someday, Slammed and Hopeless.
Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.
Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day of her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist. (from Goodreads.com)
Soundless by Richelle Mead. Published by Razorbill 11/10/15.
A standalone novel from Richelle Mead?! That’s a new one. Richelle has created some of my favorite characters of all time in two excellent and unique vampire series (Vampire Academy and Bloodlines). I am excited to see her take on Chinese folklore with her extraordinarily fast pacing and wonderful writing, even if it is only for this one book.
From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.
Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever… (from Goodreads.com)
