TIN HEART by Shivaun Plozza

When Marlowe gets a heart transplant and a second chance at life, all she wants to do is to thank her donor’s family. Maybe then she can move on. Maybe then she’ll discover who she is if she’s no longer The Dying Girl. But with a little brother who dresses like every day is Halloween, a vegan warrior for a mother, and an all-out war with the hot butcher’s apprentice next door, Marlowe’s life is already pretty complicated. And her second chance is about to take an unexpected turn…

Chaos ensues.

AN AFFAIR OF POISONS by Addie Thorley

After unwittingly poisoning King Louis XIV, alchemist Mirabelle Monvoisin is forced to see her mother’s Shadow Society in a horrifying new light: They aren’t the heroes they’ve always claimed to be, but murderers. Herself included. Mira tries to ease her guilt by brewing helpful curatives, but her tonics and remedies cannot right past wrongs. With the Sun King and half the royal court dead, royal bastard Josse de Bourbon’s only objective is to keep his injured sisters and the petulant Dauphin alive—until his path collides with Mirabelle’s, and he finds an ally in his once sworn enemy.

But when the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, seeks him out for help, Séverin is offered a treasure that he never imagined: his true inheritance. To find the ancient artifact the Order seeks, Séverin will need help from a band of experts. Together, they’ll have to use their wits and knowledge to hunt the artifact through the dark and glittering heart of Paris. What they find might change the world, but only if they can stay alive.

The wolf presents Echo with an offer: for her to come and live with him for a year. But there is more to the wolf than Echo realizes, including a history she can’t remember.

Day’s YA – THE GILDED WOLVES

Happy Friday, YA folks!

Are you a fan of Ocean’s 11, Moulin Rouge, or THE NIGHT CIRCUS (or perhaps all three)? Then stop what you’re doing and read this book ASAP, because it was written for you!

 

THE GILDED WOLVES by Roshani Chokshi
9781250144546
Ages 12 to 18
Available January 15, 2019 from Wednesday Books

It’s 1889 Paris, and the city is abuzz. The World’s Fair is coming and a new, glimmering tower at the edge of the Siene is under construction. Séverin Montagnet-Alarie owns the L’Eden Hotel, but he was born to hunt treasures. Which is why the all-powerful society, the Order of Babel, chooses him to track down a mysterious ancient artifact. To do so Séverin needs the help of his friends—an eccentric group of experts, each with their own unique speciality.

 

There’s Leila, a cabaret dancer with secrets of her own;
Enrique, the beautiful historian with a flirty side;
Zofia, the awkward and nerdy engineer extraordinaire;
Tristan, the little brother of the group who annoys the others with his pet tarantula, Goliath;
And Hypnos, the charming outsider whose trustworthiness is more than a little questionable.

This misfit crew is truly a family—they love, fight, laugh, and annoy each other. The ensemble group shines—each with their own motivation and unique perspective, but their stories intertwine beautifully. And OH, THE BANTER. Truly irresistible. readmoreremove

BETWEEN THE BLADE AND THE HEART by Amanda Hocking
The first book in a brilliant new YA fantasy duology. As a Valkyrie, Malin has always known that Valkyries have one great responsibility: to return immortals to the afterlife by slaying them. But when Malin discovers that her mother spared the life of an immortal who was destined to die, her world is thrown into chaos.

FROM THE EARTH TO THE SHADOWS by Amanda Hocking

SHADOWSONG by S. Jae-Jones
In this conclusion to the gorgeous and lush Wintersong duology, Liesl finds that life in the world above is not as easy as she’d hoped, and she must return to the Underground to unravel the mystery of life, death, and the Goblin King—who he was, who he is, and who he will be.

SKY IN THE DEEP by Adrienne Young
Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient, rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago. In this stunning debut, a young Viking warrior must challenge everything she’s been taught in order to survive and protect those she loves.
