The Rush by Rachel Higginson
Series: The Siren #1

A life not her own—A future already decided. Every facet of Ivy Pierce’s life is meticulously planned out and plotted. Cynical and jaded by sixteen, Ivy’s only hope is to escape the legacy she was born into.

She has a plan, a carefully thought out, feasible plan. She just has to play by the rules until everything falls into place. Unfortunately as predictable as her life can be, she never sees Ryder Sutton coming. He tumbles into her life unimpressed and untouched by her and the life she lives. He’s an enigma to her. A gorgeous, frustrating, sincere mystery and a complete phenomenon in the ugly world she lives in.

What blooms between them is a fiercely intense attraction that cannot be ignored. Even though they would both be better off without each other—Even if both their lives depend on staying apart.


The House of Rose by T.T. Escurel
Series: Sorcerers and Specters of Auronia #1

The roses will wither on the branch, the cups will run dry and the stars will fall from the sky in the age of the crow...

An army marches on Dawnfell and the Age of the Crow is near. The king and queen of the House of Star are slain and their only daughter, Princess Astra, is forced to flee.

Corvus of the House of Crow, dreamwalker and dark magic manipulator, is the last person in the world she should trust. Murdered at the age of eight, he endures a half-life as both victim and executor of the dark queen Malexia’s machinations. He has no future - especially not one suited for a princess.

But love, like magic, doesn’t always work out as planned.

From the hidden plateau of Windgarden, the home of the fairies, to the deserted plains of Mistfirth, where a crazed queen has outlawed her own subjects, Astra soon finds that friends are hard to come by when facing the Crows.

Through death and betrayal, dreams and nightmares, fairy tales and fairy truths, she soon discovers that all it takes is the friendship of a few to save her kingdom...

...and the true love of one to save her life.


Gone by Christine Kersey
Series: Parallel Trilogy #1

This is the first book in the Parallel Trilogy. What if everything you knew was suddenly gone? Sixteen-year-old Morgan Campbell runs away from home and when she returns the next day her world is turned upside-down. Not only is her family missing, but another family is living in her house and claims to have lived there for weeks. As Morgan desperately works to figure out what has happened, she finds society has become obsessed with weight in a way she has never seen before. The more she searches for answers, the more she begins to wonder if she has somehow ended up in another world--a world where it is illegal to be overweight. Can she survive in this world until she can get home? Gone does not contain any profanity or sexual content and is appropriate for all ages.



Mindspeak by Heather Sunseri


She was created for a purpose so revolutionary, someone was willing to kill for it.

Seventeen-year-old Lexi Matthews keeps two secrets from her elite boarding school classmates—she’s the daughter of a famous and controversial geneticist, and she can influence people’s thoughts.

But after new student Jack DeWeese heals her broken arm with an anything-but-simple touch, he forces Lexi to face a new reality—her abilities reach much further than speaking to the minds of others.

After Lexi’s father goes missing and she receives threatening emails, she can’t decide whether to fall into Jack’s arms or run and hide.

As Lexi seeks answers to what she and Jack are, she discovers a truth more unsettling than anything her science books can teach. And letting Jack into her life of secrets is not only a threat to her very existence, but it just might break her heart wide open.



Rae of Hope by W.J. May
Series: The Chronicles of Kerrigan #1

How hard do you have to shake a family tree to find out the truth of the past?

Fifteen-year-old Rae Kerrigan has never questioned her family’s history. That is until she accepted a scholarship to Guilder Boarding School in England. Guilder is a very unique, gifted school.

Rae has no idea what she is getting herself into or that her family’s past is going to come back and taunt her. She learns she is part of an unparalleled group of individuals who become marked with a unique tattoo (tatù) on their sixteenth birthday. The tatù enables them to have supernatural powers particular to the shape of their marking.

Both her parents were marked though Rae never knew, as they passed away when she was young and never told her. Learning about her family’s past, her evil father and sacrificial mother, Rae needs to decide if there is a ray of hope for her own life.
