New YA: August 3-9.
Of Metal and Wishes, by Sarah Fine
Opposition (Lux Novel), by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Servants of the Storm, by Delilah S. Dawson
Summertime of the Dead, by Gregory Hughes
Two Girls Staring at the Ceiling, by Lucy Frank:
Nice format, with a line down the middle of the page when the curtain between the girls is drawn. Distinct voices, frank talk about a hard-to-discuss disease that doesn't get much play in YA, lots of details about a week-long stay in the hospital.
Gates of Thread and Stone (Gates of Thread and Stone series), by Lori M. Lee
The Girl from the Well, by Rin Chupeco:
It’s narrated by Okiku, a famous figure from Japanese folklore. After bringing about the downfall of the men who caused her death, she’s traveled the world for centuries, destroying other child murderers. She isn’t always in complete control of herself—in addition to her unrelenting urge to kill, she compulsively counts objects in her vicinity—and all of that makes her perspective wonderfully original.
I Love I Hate I Miss My Sister, by Amelie Sarn and Y. Maudet
The Islands at the End of the World, by Austin Aslan
Just Call My Name, by Holly Goldberg Sloan
Magnolia, by Kristi Cook
Misbehaving (Sea Breeze), by Abbi Glines
Mortal Danger (Immortal Game), by Ann Aguirre
Blind, by Rachel DeWoskin
Forget Me, by K.A. Harrington
New paperbacks (that I've read):
Just Like Fate, by Cat Patrick and Suzanne Young:
This premise could easily have resulted in a book that reads like a literary exercise, but Just Like Fate succeeds across the board. It feels like a real story about real people, and the aforementioned parallels are overt enough to be noticeable—in one storyline, Caroline connects with a boy via banter; in the other, she attempts the same sort of banter with a different boy and it falls flat—while still being subtle enough to avoid being gimmicky. Patrick and Young write seamlessly in the same voice; Caroline is believable, imperfect and sympathetic; and her friends and family are just as believable and well-drawn.
