Can fear be inherited?
Check it out!

Expected publication: May 24th 2016 by Crown Books for Young Readers 

Kelsey was raised to see danger everywhere. Her mother hasn’t set foot outside their front door in seventeen years, since she escaped from her kidnappers with Kelsey growing inside her.

Kelsey knows she’s supposed to keep a low profile for their own protection, but that plan is shattered when she drives off a cliff and is rescued by volunteer firefighter and classmate Ryan Baker.

A few days later, she arrives home to face her greatest fear: her mother is missing. She and her mother have drilled for all contingencies—except this one. Luckily, Ryan is as skilled at emergency rescues as Kelsey is at escape and evasion.

To have a chance at a future, Kelsey will have to face all her darkest fears. Because someone is coming for her.

And the truth about the past may end up being the most dangerous thing of all.

Some Books Ago: Dead To You by Lisa McMann

Every Tuesday I post about the new books I discover. So, I wanted to give a shout out to all those books published some years ago, the forgotten ones.

This week, let's remember Dead To You by Lisa McMann. I haven't read many books by her, but this one sounds amazing. I hope I can read it soon! 

DEATH TO YOU was published on February 7th 2012 by Simon Pulse



Ethan was abducted from his front yard when he was just seven years old. Now, at sixteen, he has returned to his family.

It's a miracle... at first.

Then the tensions start to build. His reintroduction to his old life isn't going smoothly, and his family is tearing apart all over again. If only Ethan could remember something, anything, about his life before, he'd be able to put the pieces back together.

But there's something that's keeping his memory blocked.

Something unspeakable...

What's New? Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke


The intrigue of The Virgin Suicides and the "supernatural or not" question of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer coalesce in this young adult mystery, where nothing is quite as it seems, no one is quite who you think, and everything can change on a dime.
Check it out!

Expected publication: March 22nd 2016 by Dial Books 

Every story needs a hero.
Every story needs a villain.
Every story needs a secret.

Wink is the odd, mysterious neighbor girl, wild red hair and freckles. Poppy is the blond bully and the beautiful, manipulative high school queen bee. Midnight is the sweet, uncertain boy caught between them. Wink. Poppy. Midnight. Two girls. One boy. Three voices that burst onto the page in short, sharp, bewitching chapters, and spiral swiftly and inexorably toward something terrible or tricky or tremendous.

What really happened?
Someone knows.
Someone is lying.

For fans of Holly Black, We Were Liars, and The Raven Boys, this mysterious tale full of intrigue, dread, beauty, and a whiff of something strange will leave you utterly entranced.

ARC Review: Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young

Hotel Ruby 
ARC provided for review. Thank you!
My rating: 4 stars
When Audrey Casella arrives for an unplanned stay at the grand Hotel Ruby, she’s grateful for the detour. Just months after their mother’s death, Audrey and her brother, Daniel, are on their way to live with their grandmother, dumped on the doorstep of a DNA-matched stranger because their father is drowning in his grief.
Audrey and her family only plan to stay the night, but life in the Ruby can be intoxicating, extending their stay as it provides endless distractions—including handsome guest Elias Lange, who sends Audrey’s pulse racing. However, the hotel proves to be as strange as it is beautiful. Nightly fancy affairs in the ballroom are invitation only, and Audrey seems to be the one guest who doesn't have an invite. Instead, she joins the hotel staff on the rooftop, catching whispers about the hotel’s dark past.
The more Audrey learns about the new people she's met, the more her curiosity grows. She’s torn in different directions—the pull of her past with its overwhelming loss, the promise of a future that holds little joy, and an in-between life in a place that is so much more than it seems…


I’ve read many books by Suzanne Young, and so I can tell she has an amazing talent to write heartache. I don’t think I’ve ever read one of her books without crying. HOTEL RUBY is not the exception.

The book starts with Audrey and her broken family going away after her mother’s death. In the way to her grandmother’s house, they find the Hotel Ruby, a majestic hotel in the middle of nowhere.
The hotel seems like the distraction they were looking for. There, Audrey meets Elias, a mysterious and handsome boy, and his friends from the hotel staff. She’s soon drawn to them, to the stories behind the hotel.
The first half of the book is mostly dedicated to create the atmosphere and built the relationships, and while I enjoyed it and started to feel curious, it felt a little flat.
However, the second half of the book is filled with intrigue and mysteries. It’s impossible to put it down.
The plot twist is so well done that even if you expected it, you’ll still be astonished.
I was impressed with Suzanne Young’s ability to describe some creepy and graphic scenes, it was shocking.

The dynamics among the characters were realistic. I enjoyed reading about Audrey, her family, her new friends, but the hotel itself felt like the main character.
HOTEL RUBY is one of the best thrillers I’ve read so far. There’s no doubt Suzanne Young is one of the best authors out there.

What's New? Seven Black Diamonds by Melissa Marr


 This riveting fantasy marks Melissa Marr’s return to the world of faery courts that made her Wicked Lovely series an international phenomenon.
Check it out!

Expected publication: March 1st 2016 by HarperCollins 

Lilywhite Abernathy is a criminal—she’s half human, half fae, and since the time before she was born, a war has been raging between humans and faeries. The Queen of Blood and Rage, ruler of the fae courts, wants to avenge the tragic death of her heir due to the actions of reckless humans.

Lily’s father has always shielded her, but when she’s sent to the prestigious St. Columba’s school, she’s delivered straight into the arms of a fae sleeper cell—the Black Diamonds. The Diamonds are planted in the human world as the sons and daughters of the most influential families and tasked with destroying it from within. Against her will, Lilywhite’s been chosen to join them...and even the romantic attention of the fae rock singer Creed Morrison isn’t enough to keep Lily from wanting to run back to the familiar world she knows.

Melissa Marr returns to faery in a dramatic story of the precarious space between two worlds and the people who must thrive there. The combination of ethereal fae powers, tumultuous romance, and a bloodthirsty faery queen will have longtime fans and new readers at the edge of their seats.

Even more surprisingly … she’s apparently a witch herself. Despite doubts about her newfound abilities, Nicole is welcomed into this ancient circle of witches and is bedazzled by their powers—and, to her dismay, by Blake—the school’s notorious bad-boy. Girls who get close to Blake wind up hurt.
His girlfriend Danielle will do anything to keep them away, even if she must resort to using dark magic. But the chemistry between Blake and Nicole is undeniable, and despite wanting to protect Nicole from Danielle’s wrath, he finds it impossible to keep his distance. When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole, Blake, Danielle, and two others in their homeroom are gifted with mysterious powers.
But the comet has another effect—it opens the portal to the prison world that has contained the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes and attacks Nicole and Blake, it’s up to them and the others to follow the clues from a cryptic prophecy so that they can save their town … and possibly the world.
