New Releases Tuesday - February 4, 2014

It's New Releases Tuesday once again. Somebody get me my smelling salts, because Ignite Me is finally here.

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

The conclusion of the Shatter Me series has arrived. Let's pause for a moment, shall we, and just look at this cover. I know I like covers, but COME ON THIS COVER.

I only picked up the first two books in the series in the last six months (Shatter Me and Unravel Me) and I tore through them in record time. Juliette, our heroine, is a badass who kind of maybe can't touch anyone because her touch is deadly. But then there's Adam. She can touch Adam. And then there's Warner. Oh, yeah, she can touch him too. Sometimes. So much touching.

Romantic, steamy, completely enjoyable reads all around. If you buy the first one, you may as well buy all three--there's no putting them down.

Also, sorry not sorry, I'm 100% team Warner on this one.

Something Real by Heather Demetrios

I never watched Jon and Kate Plus 8 because that many children in one place kind of terrifies me, but I was always curious about what was going to happen to the kids when they got older. Thankfully, Heather Demetrios has done the wondering for me.

Once a child reality star, Bonnie Baker has left celebrity behind, trying to make her life as a normal teenager. Now, her parents are trying to get her back on television.

This book has the potential to be pretty entertaining, and also encourage us to take a look at the way we treat famous people, especially famous children (Bieber, I'm looking at you).

Landry Park by Bethany Hagen

I was dubious, but then I read the tagline: Downton Abbey meets The Selection in this dystopian tale of love and betrayal.

Has it been done before? Uh, yes. Does that mean I won't totally love it? Uh, no. (Although the cover does kind of make it look like a bad Bravo reality show, which I definitely don't like either I swear...)
