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.

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.

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.

Open Minds, by Susan Kaye Quinn

Humanity of the future is telepathic. But some people are born different. The least powerful are zeros, hated because their minds are closed off. The most powerful are jackers, feared for their abilities. Kira is a zero — an outcast, and completely alone. But if they knew what she was thinking, things would be so much worse.
