Off Planet, by Aileen Erin
Maité is half alien, living in hiding since she was a small child, when most of her father’s species on Earth was slaughtered. If humanity discovers her, they’ll kill her. So she hides with her mother, poor as dirt, trying not to attract attention. But that isn’t easy in a world where all humans have tech implants that her half-Aunare side can’t tolerate. Literally.
Not to mention the super-fast reflexes and the occasional glowing-skin thing.
When she finally gets the chance to flee–to return to the father who desperately wants her safe on an alien world–things go from bad to worse. Her secret is out, and she’s about to become a pawn in an inter-planetary war. Suddenly, what she represents seems to matter more than who she is. But Maité knows exactly who she is. And she’s about to prove it.
Lunar Court, by Aileen Erin
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think this one was my favorite yet!!! How do they just keep getting better???
Cosette is a fey princess–a flaming-sword wielding, kick butt and take names later kind of fey princess who wants nothing to do with the fey Lunar Court but is bound to it by blood. Chris is a werewolf with a battered childhood. Controlled by the moon, he can’t be bound to the Lunar Court without becoming a slave.
They can’t be together, but they can’t deny their feelings. So when an Archon tells Chris there might be a way to break his lunar tie, Chris enters the fey Court of Gales, an underground world of double-talk and corruption that reminds him far too much of his own troubled past. He would do anything for Cosette. Anything. But that’s easy to say when you don’t know what “anything” might mean…
Six of Crows, by Leigh Bardugo
Do you love books with well-woven plots? With armloads of meandering strings that twist and turn and suddenly all come together into one brilliant heist? Then you’ll love this one!
That’s Not What I Heard, by Stephanie Kate Strohm
When two high school seniors break up accidentally, the entire school is thrown into mayhem. A single rumor that’s… err, well… almost true takes on a life of its own until half the school won’t even speak to the other half, the teachers are all taking sides, and two of the most responsible students in the district are kicking up more trouble in a single week (without even trying) than most people manage in a lifetime.
The City of Brass, by S.A. Chakraborty
This book is magnificent. The sense of being in another world saturates the entire novel, from the subtle details of the apothecary shop (woven seamlessly into the action) to the rich history of the daeva city with its ancient mysteries, politics, and magic.

Love à la Mode, by Stephanie Kate Strohm
I read Stephanie Kate Strohm’s Prince in Disguise during the 2017 holiday season and absolutely devoured it. With Love à la Mode, she’s now on my (very short) must-read author list.
Henry is in high school, but he’s been chosen out of thousands of applicants to attend one of the most elite cooking programs in the world—a year in Paris! It’s his wildest dream come true, but his mother is not on board. From an ocean away, she’s going to make the best year of his life into a living hell. But he has to survive it. He has to. Not just for his dreams, but for Rosie.
Rosie’s in the same program, but she’s more of a baker than a cook. She’s failing in class, proving to be terrible at the one thing she loves most in the world, and they’ve made it very clear that not everyone gets to stay the full year. She’s already lost more than any kid should have to, and she’s struggling to hold on to the first thing she’s cared about in a very long time. The first two things—her year in Paris, and Henry.
Jivaja, by Venessa M. Giunta
For as long as she can remember, Mecca has had the power to drain life through the touch of her hand. It’s a family secret—both her “gift” and her mother’s unusual death—because Mecca is not the first. Her power came from her father, who has loved and trained her all her life, trying to help her control what she can do.
But he hasn’t told her everything.
Now, her world has collided with an underground society of life drainers who would do anything to control her, and nothing is safe anymore: not her home, not her father, and definitely not her secrets.
Sugar Spells, by Lola Dodge
Brand new this week!!!
Don’t you just love these covers? The first one sucked me right in, and I love this one even more. But what’s true of the covers is just as true of the books!
Anise is still in Taos, but her previous adventures did not leave her unscathed. Without spoilers (for either this book or book one), she finds herself more deeply immersed in the world of magic, becoming more aware of its darker side—whether she wants to or not. Now she’s struggling to figure out how she fits in, who she’s going to be, and what exactly is happening to her powers.
The Golem and the Jinni, by Helene Wecker
This book is on our short list of favorite reads ever. It’s on sale and it’s brilliant.
The writing is elegant–the kind we love to get lost in. The story is beautifully woven, crossing multiple times, places, and cultures. It is rich in magic, yet it is first and foremost a story about people. Did we mention it’s one of our favorite reads ever?
And the ebook is only $1.99 for a limited time.
Peace Force, by Simon Haynes
Harriet Walsh was destined to serve on the Peace Force. She’s been receiving invitations to join up since she was only 15 years old… she just doesn’t know it—mostly because they’ve been printed on the backs of takeout menus and advertising pamphlets by an obsolete robot. When her beloved aunt passes away, leaving behind a broken heart and a pile of debt, Harriet finally gets her mail. Serving on the Peace Force isn’t exactly her passion, but jobs are scarce and she needs the cash. Besides, Dismolle is a retirement planet. How bad could it be?
Well, she’s about to find out. Training isn’t easy when nobody outranks the antique-bucket-of-bolts robot that was left running the show, especially when it has to recharge more often than a five-year-old iPhone. Add a training weapon she’s not allowed to train with, a police budget funded by a lottery scam, and an AI cop car that likes long walks on the beach, and Harriet is in for one miserable Peace Force experience.
