I’ve seen this tag floating around, and honestly, I don’t know where it originated from because it’s been around for years! I tweaked it slightly so that it worked for me, so read on to find out about the books that I’ve loved, hated, and fangirled over so far this year!
A heart to protect. A debt to repay. A game to win.
After being swept up in the magical world of Caraval, Donatella Dragna has finally escaped her father and saved her sister Scarlett from a disastrous arranged marriage. The girls should be celebrating, but Tella isn’t yet free. She made a desperate bargain with a mysterious criminal, and what Tella owes him no one has ever been able to deliver: Caraval Master Legend’s true name.
The only chance of uncovering Legend’s identity is to win Caraval, so Tella throws herself into the legendary competition once more—and into the path of the murderous heir to the throne, a doomed love story, and a web of secrets…including her sister’s. Caraval has always demanded bravery, cunning, and sacrifice. But now the game is asking for more. If Tella can’t fulfill her bargain and deliver Legend’s name, she’ll lose everything she cares about—maybe even her life. But if she wins, Legend and Caraval will be destroyed forever.
Welcome, welcome to Caraval…the games have only just begun.
Fifteen year old Beck has been playing the piano for as long as he can remember. He longs to play the music he composes in his head, but is forced to play the classics by his violent mother. The more mistakes he makes, the worse the consequences are. As Beck strives for perfection to please his mother, he begins to resent playing the piano all together.
When Beck is forced to partner with a girl named August for a school project, he is drawn to her eternal optimism, but feels forced to push her away. His mother would never approve of the distractions a friendship would create. As August refuses to give up on Beck, he can’t help but wonder if a new life could be waiting just around the corner if he only dares to stand up to his mother. Is he willing to risk everything he’s known for a chance at happiness?
No one knows what happened to pop icon Eric Thorn. His Twitter account has been inactive since his cryptic tweet a month ago. His cell phone was found cracked, bloody, buried in the snow.

After months of living under the radar, Tessa emerges from hiding, forced to face the deadly consequences of her past. But in the interrogation room, answers only lead to more questions in the pulse-pounding conclusion to the Follow Me Back duology.
