There are a billion new releases this week, and we’re freaking out!!!
Okay, now that we got that out of our systems. Here’s a somewhat calmer look at this week’s new titles …
Our February Teen Buzz Book is out and it’s incredible!
By Dhonielle Clayton
Why we’re loving it:
“If Leigh Bardugo and Suzanne Collins were in a battle for my heart, it is Dhonielle Clayton who picked up the pieces and poured them into this beautiful book. The Belles could slide by on vivid language and stunning character development alone, but instead it punches back with a courageous plot that belongs in a genre of its own. It does remain a fantasy novel overall, as it is well laced with magic and made-up words, but at the same time recites a powerful message about beauty, servitude, and what it means to be unique. It also sneaks in sprinkles of romance, and really, who doesn’t love sprinkles?”

A book to die for!
By Shaun David Hutchinson
Why we’re loving it:
“With a diverse array of characters and a philosophical theme that mixes dashes of romance, comedy and a great deal of science-fiction, Shaun David Hutchinson writes a book everyone should read. It asks questions that challenges the reader to step back and contemplate the true meaning of good and bad. I fell in love with how the book occupied my mind and recommend it to any teenager willing to probe themselves for the same answers Elena does. With a critical look into the mind, I give this book five stars!”
