1. Prince of Shadows by Rachel Caine – A retelling of the star-crossed tale of Romeo and Juliet.  I adore star-crossed lovers and I’ve heard that the writing in this book is absolutely beautiful.

2. Into the Dim (Into The Dim #1) by Janet B. Taylor – Hope is trapped in the twelfth century in the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine and has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time.  I’ve never read a time travel book involving the twelfth century and this book promises to be addicting and  filled with romance and rich with historical detail.

3. Seeker (Riders #2) by Veronica Rossi – I know the picture is for Riders but Seekers, the 2nd and final part of this duology, is over a year away so of course there isn’t a cover yet.  But I fell madly in love with Riders!  It was enthralling, addicting and I can’t wait to see how this story about the four horsemen  ends!

4. The Impostor Queen (The Impostor Queen #1) by Sarah Fine – Magic, adventure & romance!  Elli is destined to be the most powerful Valtia to ever rule.  But when the queen dies defending the kingdom from invading warriors, the magic doesn’t enter Elli.  She flees to the outlands, the home of banished criminals, and uncovers devastating new information about the Kupari magic, those who wield it, and the prophecy that foretold her destiny.

5. The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry – Natalie starts seeing the “wrong things”  and then she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists.  A young adult fantasy that sounds captivating!

6. It’s All Your Fault by Paul Rudnick – My name is Caitlin and up until forty-eight hours ago I had never: Tasted alcohol, kissed a boy, sang in public at the top of my lungs, kidnapped anyone or–WHAT? STOLEN A CONVERTIBLE?  Now I’m in jail and I have no idea what I’m going to tell: The police, my parents, the mayor, all of those camera crews and everyone on Twitter.  This book is supposed to be laugh out loud hilarious!

7. Split by Swati Avasthi – Jace realizes that if he really wants to move forward, he may first have to do what scares him most: He may have to go back.  So sixteen-Year-Old Jace Witherspoon arrives at the doorstep of his estranged brother Christian with a re-landscaped face (courtesy of his father’s fist), $3.84, and a secret.  A young adult riveting portrait of life after abuse.

8. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick – Today is Leonard Peacock’s birthday. It is also the day he hides a gun in his backpack. Because today is the day he will kill his former best friend, and then himself, with his grandfather’s P-38 pistol.  This book is a look into the day of a disturbed teenager and examines the impossible choices that must be made.

10. The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan – I am late on this train!  Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him.
