Chelsea Fine’s newest novel is out today: Perfect Kind of Trouble 

I signed Chelsea several books ago for her YA novels, but every book she writes I like even more than the last one. This new adult book is a stand alone but set in the same world as Best Kind of Broken and the upcoming Right Kind of Wrong. 

Chelsea does characters and relationships that make me laugh and tear up and smile, all in the same book. I’m so honored to be a part of this whole series.

This is Your Lucky Day 

There’s not much out there that’s better than spending a day with a Cora Carmack novel. Maybe spending a day with this guy

Only now there’s a new Cora Carmack novel that reminds me of the very best things about a show that I loved (family relationships, Texas football, hot guys, strong female characters, etc) and all of the things I love about new adult (romance, college, hot guys, strong female characters, etc).

And today, it’s here.

The first book in the Rusk University series, All Lined Up, is one of my new absolutely favorite novels. I know I’m biased, but it’s amazing. 

I mean it when I say you’re going to love this book. Even if you know nothing and/or don’t love football.

Congratulations to the fabulously talented Makiia Lucier. Her debut novel, A Death-Struck Year, is out today!
Two summers ago, I convinced Sarah Goldberg to be my assistant. It was just for the summer because she had to go back to Columbia in the fall for her doctorate (that slacker). I definitely got the better end of the deal. 

Sarah read the query for A Death-Struck Year and new she needed to request it for me. Then she read the novel and told me that I had to read it. She was, of course, right.

This novel is truly amazing. It’s beautifully written and incredibly poignant. 

Here’s the description:
In the grip of the deadly 1918 flu pandemic, not even the strong survive.The Spanish influenza is devastating the East Coast—but Cleo Berry knows it is a world away from the safety of her home in Portland, Oregon. Then the flu moves into the Pacific Northwest. Schools, churches, and theaters are shut down. The entire city is thrust into survival mode—and into a panic. Seventeen-year-old Cleo is told to stay put in her quarantined boarding school, but when the Red Cross pleads for volunteers, she cannot ignore the call for help. In the grueling days that follow her headstrong decision, she risks everything for near-strangers. Strangers like Edmund, a handsome medical student. Strangers who could be gone tomorrow. And as the bodies pile up, Cleo can’t help but wonder: when will her own luck run out? Riveting and well-researched, A Death-Struck Year is based on the real-life pandemic considered the most devastating in recorded world history, and leaves readers asking: what would I do for a neighbor? At what risk to myself?
