Far From You by Tess Sharpe
Nine months. Two weeks. Six days.
That's how long recovering addict Sophie's been drug-free. Four months ago her best friend, Mina, died in what everyone believes was a drug deal gone wrong - a deal they think Sophie set up. Only Sophie knows the truth. She and Mina shared a secret, but there was no drug deal. Mina was deliberately murdered.
Forced into rehab for an addiction she'd already beaten, Sophie's finally out and on the trail of the killer—but can she track them down before they come for her?
The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey -- zombie retelling/partially inspired by the legend of Ipighenia? WHO DOESN'T WANT TO READ THAT?
Moth and Spark by Anne Leonard -- dragons and murder and DRAGONS who needs to hear more than that?
Sinner by Maggie Steifvater (Wolves of Mercy Falls #4) -- no offense to the main two, but Cole and Isabel were always my favorites. I am so stoked to see what kinds of torment Maggie puts them through.
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
Magical realism, lyrical prose, and the pain and passion of human love haunt this hypnotic generational saga.
Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava—in all other ways a normal girl—is born with the wings of a bird.
In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naïve to the twisted motives of others. Others like the pious Nathaniel Sorrows, who mistakes Ava for an angel and whose obsession with her grows until the night of the Summer Solstice celebration.
That night, the skies open up, rain and feathers fill the air, and Ava’s quest and her family’s saga build to a devastating crescendo.
First-time author Leslye Walton has constructed a layered and unforgettable mythology of what it means to be born with hearts that are tragically, exquisitely human.
