I'll admit to being a little intimidated by this week's topic but thanks to a wonderful list at Goodreads featuring 2014 debut authors and their works, and saw I had already had a whole bunch shelved on my Can't-wait-til-it's out shelf that I was off to a wonderful start in compiling my list. Granted, most of them are either Young Adult or New Adult books, but since that's mostly what I've been reading lately, I'm good with that.
So in no particular order, here's my top ten for the week:
|Hanley discovers Nate living in her garage. Broken herself, she forms a bond with him and even though she knows she shouldn't let him stay, she finds she doesn't want to lose her connection with him.|
|Both broken, Josie and Tristan share a past and come face to face again years later, which puts them both in danger. Their past will either make them or break them as a couple.|
|Andi is tired of living in the shadow of her "perfect" sister and devises a plan to steal some of the spotlight for herself but things don't go according to plan.|
|Love the title alone but the reviews on Goodreads are comparing to a cross between Cruel Intentions and Pretty in Pink.|
|Girl is dying so she works on her bucket list only to have her cancer go into remission. Will she be able to live with the repercussions of some of the unforgiveable things that she's done to others?|
|Gordie struggles with PTSD after a horrific family tragedy. He moves in with his brother and starts to move forward when his dad show up in his life again, sending him spiraling back down. Is he strong enough to get through his past again?|
