Keep reading for what’s hot this week and make sure to save space in your bookshelves! Yes, we know you have more than one. So do we!
This collection will have you excited for the holidays with a selection of romantic tales, perfect for winter. From Kasie West, a snowy road trip takes an unexpected detour when secrets and crushes are revealed, then from Aimee Friedman, a Hanukkah miracle may just happen when a Jewish girl working as a department store elf finds love. Then there’s a tale by Melissa de La Cruz, where Christmas Eve gets a plot twist when a high school couple exchange surprising presents. Lastly, Nic Stone tells a story about a scavenger hunt amid the holiday crowds at an airport that turns totally romantic.
These tales are perfect to cuddle up with by a fireplace, or even on a hammock with a cup of hot cocoa.
In this super sweet romantic comedy, Nathan Bird doesn’t believe in happy endings. Although he’s the ultimate film buff and an aspiring screenwriter, Nate’s seen the demise of too many relationships to believe that happy endings exist in real life.
Playing it safe to avoid a broken heart has been his main rule ever since his father died and left his mom to unravel, but this strategy is not without fault. His best-friend-turned-girlfriend-turned-best-friend-again, Florence, is set on making sure Nate finds someone else. And in a twist that is rom-com-worthy, someone does come along, and it is Oliver James Hernández, his childhood best friend. But can he reveal his feelings to him? Is this meant to be?
Stay tuned for twists and turns and lots of romance in this cute tale.
In this edgy book, we meet Jack Rothman. He's seventeen and loves partying, makeup and boys - sometimes all at the same time. His sex life makes him the hot topic for the high school gossip machine. But who cares? Like Jack always says, 'it could be worse'.
He doesn't actually expect that to come true.
But after Jack starts writing an online sex advice column, the mysterious love letters he's been getting take a turn for the creepy. Jack's secret admirer knows everything: where he's hanging out, who he's sleeping with, who his mom is dating. They claim they love Jack, but not his unashamedly queer lifestyle. They need him to curb his sexuality, or they'll force him.
Will Jack be able to unmask his secret stalker before it’s too late? Read on and find out.
