Fresh Batch (New Releases February 16th – 22nd)

Posted by

Fresh Batch, posted weekly, keeps you up to date on the hottest releases of the upcoming week.

Flavor of the week:

Me Since You
Laura Wiess
Publication date: February 18th 2014
by MTV Books

Goodreads Purchase

Laura Wiess captures the visceral emotion of a girl’s journey from innocence to devastating loss and, ultimately, to a strange and unexpected kind of understanding—in this beautiful and painfully honest new novel.

Are there any answers when someone you love makes a tragic choice?

Before and After. That’s how Rowan Areno sees her life now. Before: she was a normal sixteen-year-old—a little too sheltered by her police officer father and her mother. After: everything she once believed has been destroyed in the wake of a shattering tragedy, and every day is there to be survived.

If she had known, on that Friday in March when she cut school, that a random stranger’s shocking crime would have traumatic consequences, she never would have left campus. If the crime video never went viral, maybe she could have saved her mother, grandmother — and herself — from the endless replay of heartache and grief.

Finding a soul mate in Eli, a witness to the crime who is haunted by losses of his own, Rowan begins to see there is no simple, straightforward path to healing wounded hearts. Can she learn to trust, hope, and believe in happiness again?

    Yay!! No books that I really, really want this week. I do still need to read Insanity and Perfect Lies to review though. I am reading Maybe One Day now. Thanks for sharing the new releases coming out babe!!

  2. Siiri

    Even though I wasn’t a huge fan of All of You by Christina Lee, I’m still everexcited for Before You Break, because THE PREMISE. Yes, please! As Amy, not so many books this week that I MUST GET MY HANDS ON, but still, some really cool ones. Thanks for not giving up on these post. You always manage to nurture my tbr lol.

  3. Eileen @ Singing and Reading in the Rain

    I always associate Maybe One Day and Me Since You together because I read them one after each other and they’re slightly serious and deal with death (sort of lol) Both were super good, though, and I know a lot of people are looking forward to Perfect Lies and Bright Before Sunrise. I loove the cover of Perfect Lies even though I didn’t love the inside lol. Thanks for sharing, Giselle! <33

    I loved Worth the Chance, I just finished it today and I just finished Before You Break yesterday which was also really good! While Sleeping Beauty Slept sounds interesting. I haven’t seen much in the way of Sleeping Beauty re-tellings so I’m curious. 🙂
