VOX BY CHRISTINA DALCHER | AUGUST 21, 2018
On average, people speak around 16,000 words a day. In Vox, women have been almost totally silenced: now only permitted a vocabulary of a mere 100 words. With the language goes their ability to hold jobs, soon girls are no longer taught to read and write. Dr. Jean McClellan refuses to accept this new America and makes the ultimate decision for herself, her daughter, for every woman silenced: she will reclaim her voice.
UM YES DOES THIS SOUND AMAZING OR WHAT! Completely horrifying, but so good. (Also, I’m going to say I speak way less than 16,000 words a day!)
THE PROPOSAL BY JASMINE GUILLORY | SEPTEMBER 4, 2018
Five months into dating her man bunned, actor-bro boyfriend, the last thing Nikole expects is a big screen proposal at a baseball game (he can’t even spell her name right!) With her refusal comes a massive blow-up, not just from the disappointed fans in the stadium, but Nik’s social media once the video goes viral. Carlos was at that game, even helped Nik flee from the camera crews, but Nik knows this handsome LA doctor can’t possibly be looking for anything serious.
This is the follow-up to the wildly popular The Wedding Date and, not only sounds excellent, but also comes out a few days before my birthday!
LIFE ON THE LEASH BY VICTORIA SCHADE | SEPTEMBER 18, 2018
Okay so Cora might be utterly lacking in the social-life department, but her dog walking business is thriving and as far as Cora is concerned, the only man she needs is her rescue Pit. Everything changes with a new client, drop dead gorgeous Charlie. Unfortunately, Charlie’s taken. Thankfully Cora has sweet, adorable, geeky Eli, always there to listen to Cora’s problems. As things take an interesting turn with Charlie, however, Cora’s floored to discover there just might be something there with Eli as well.
Oh, puppies. If you put a dog in a book there’s a 100% chance I will read it and love it. This one goes a step further by featuring a rescue Pittie (just like my sweet girl ♥)! I am so there for the love triangle and the auditions for the dog-training television show (I’m positive – pawsitive?? – high jinks will ensue).
AN ASSASSIN’S GUIDE TO LOVE AND TREASON BY VIRGINIA BOECKER | OCTOBER 23, 2018
When Lady Katherine’s father is arrested for illegally practicing Catholicism, it’s a bad enough blow, but then she learns he also happened to be mixed up in a plot to assassinate Queen Elizabeth I. With nothing to lose, Katherine does what any doting daughter would do: she disguises herself as a boy and heads to London to kill the queen herself. Katherine sees her chance with Shakespeare’s newest play…what she doesn’t know is that the play is also a ploy to expose rebels and insurrectionists. The mastermind behind it all is one of Elizabeth’s spies – and he and Katherine find themselves playing the lead opposite the other.
Oh this sounds delightful! ..Or as delightful as assassination can be. I’m not the biggest Shakespeare fan, but you know I can’t pass up a good historical and this YA sounds fun.
