Coming Up for Air

By: Nicole B. Tyndall

Expected Publication Date: December 15th, 2020

Buy on:   Amazon


For fans of Nina LaCour and The Spectacular Now, a powerful coming-of-age story about a girl with creative aspirations and the boy who charms his way into her life, centering on themes of addiction, loss, and the tumultuousness of first love—and how to find strength when everything falls apart.

Ever since her mom’s cancer scare, Hadley hasn’t been one for taking risks. And after seeing her sister go through one too many heartbreaks, she definitely has no interest in dating. Hadley just wants to keep her head down and enjoy the rest of high school with her friends, focusing on her photography and getting into the art school of her dreams.

Then enters Braden, star of the swim team and precisely the kind of person Hadley avoids, all bravado and charm and impulsivity. From their first moment together, they are perfect sparring partners, equally matched. And it’s intoxicating. Braden sees her, really sees her, and Hadley decides it might be time to break all her rules.

Braden shows Hadley how to live again, and soon Hadley is happier than she’ll ever admit out loud. But that’s before her family is faced with devastating news, and Braden starts hiding a growing, dark secret. As it threatens to shatter everything they’ve built, Hadley must confront her own actions and determine if she has the strength to walk away.
 



Oh man!  Talk about having a rough life!  This book definitely sounds like an interesting read!

The Notorious Virtues

By: Alwyn Hamilton

Expected Publication Date: December 18th, 2020

Buy on: 
 Goodreads



A glamorous media darling, a surprise heiress, and the magical competition of a lifetime.

At sixteen, Honora “Nora” Holtzfall is the daughter of the most powerful heiress in all of Walstad. Her family controls all the money–and all the magic–in the entire country. But despite being the center of attention, Nora has always felt like an outsider. When her mother is found dead in an alley, the family throne and fortune are suddenly up for grabs, and Nora will be pitted against her cousins in the Veritaz, the ultimate magical competition for power that determines the one family heir.

But there’s a surprise contestant this time: Lotte, the illegitimate daughter of Nora’s aunt. When Lotte’s absent mother retrieves her from the rural convent she’d abandoned her to, Lotte goes from being an orphan to surrounded by family. Unfortunately, most of them want her dead.

And soon, Nora discovers that her mother’s death wasn’t random–it was murder. And the only person she can trust to uncover the truth of what happened is a rakish young reporter who despises everything Nora and her family stand for.

With everyone against her, Lotte’s last hope is hunting for the identity of her father. But the dangerous competition–and her feelings for Theo, one of the Holtzfalls’ sworn protectors–turns her world upside down.

Incredible tests, impossible choices and deadly odds await both girls. But there can only be one winner.

Wow! A book that involves magic and murder!  Can't wait to check this book out!

  3. I haven't been reading much YA recently, so both of these are new to me. I read Alwyn's Rebel Of The Sands, but never finished the series. I hope you enjoy reading both of your picks this week!
    Thanks for stopping by My WoW earlier.

  6. I usually love hard hitting YA like Coming Up for Air so I'm very curious to see what you think once you've read it.

    I've never heard of The Notorious Virtues either and that one sounds really cool. I love that it is centered around a competition. I really wish more books did like Hunger Games.

    1. Me too! I want to see more competition books too! The closest we had was Pierce Brown's Red Rising series.
