Caraval
Caraval #1
Author: Stephanie Garber
Release Date: January 31st 2017
Publisher: Flatiron Books


Whatever you've heard about Caraval, it doesn't compare to the reality. It's more than just a game or a performance. It's the closest you'll ever find to magic in this world . . .

Welcome, welcome to Caraval—Stephanie Garber’s sweeping tale of two sisters who escape their ruthless father when they enter the dangerous intrigue of a legendary game.


Scarlett has never left the tiny island where she and her beloved sister, Tella, live with their powerful, and cruel, father. Now Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over.

But this year, Scarlett’s long-dreamt of invitation finally arrives. With the help of a mysterious sailor, Tella whisks Scarlett away to the show. Only, as soon as they arrive, Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind organizer, Legend. It turns out that this season’s Caraval revolves around Tella, and whoever finds her first is the winner.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But she nevertheless becomes enmeshed in a game of love, heartbreak, and magic with the other players in the game. And whether Caraval is real or not, she must find Tella before the five nights of the game are over, a dangerous domino effect of consequences is set off, and her sister disappears forever.

Austin Butler Performs Role of Akos in 'Carve the Mark' Audiobook!



Did you know that actor Austin Butler from The Shannara Chronicles, Switched at Birth, Carrie Diaries performed the role Akos in Veronica Roth's new book Carve the Mark audiobook? 


Well now you do, and here is a video that HarperAudio shared on their YouTube channel recently. 



Carve the Mark
Written by Veronica Roth

Fans of Star Wars and Divergent will revel in internationally bestselling author Veronica Roth’s stunning new science-fiction fantasy series.

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not—their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.

Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive—or to destroy one another.

Release Day Blitz: Egomaniac by Vi Keeland


EGOMANIAC
Author: Vi Keeland
Reading Level: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Released: January 16, 2017
Review Source: Everafter Romance

The night I met Drew Jagger, he’d just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing.

Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn’t an intruder at all.

Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He’d been on vacation while his posh space was renovated. Which was how a scammer got away with leasing me office space that wasn’t really available for rent. I was swindled out of ten grand.

The next day, after hours at the police station, Drew took pity on me and made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. In exchange for answering his phones while his secretary was out, he’d let me stay until I found a new place. I probably should have acted grateful and kept my mouth shut when I overheard the advice he was spewing to his clients. But I couldn’t help giving him a piece of my mind. I never expected my body to react every time we argued. Especially when that was all we seemed to be able to do.

The two of us were complete opposites. Drew was a bitter, angry, gorgeous-as-all-hell, destroyer of relationships. And my job was to help people save their marriages. The only thing the two of us had in common was the space we were sharing. And an attraction that was getting harder to deny by the day.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                      

DELACORTE PRESS TO PUBLISH NEW YOUNG ADULT NOVEL FROM
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR E. LOCKHART

Genuine Fraud to be published on September 5, 2017
Deluxe Edition of We Were Liars to be published on May 23, 2017

New York, NY, January 12, 2017 – Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, has acquired and will publish a new YA novel from theNew York Times bestselling author of We Were Liars (2014), E. Lockhart. The deal for world rights was announced today by Beverly Horowitz, Senior Vice President, Publisher, Delacorte Press, and longtime Lockhart editor, negotiated with Lockhart’s agent, Elizabeth Kaplan of The Elizabeth Kaplan Literary Agency.

Edgy and inventive, Genuine Fraud is an instantly memorable story of love, betrayal, and entangled relationships that are not what they seem. Lockhart introduces readers to the story of Imogen and Jule—Imogen, a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat; Jule, a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete. This is a novel about intense friendship, a disappearance, murder, bad romance, a girl who refuses to give people what they want from her, and a girl who refuses to be the person she once was. Who is genuine? And who is a fraud? You be the judge. Follow #GenuineFraud for conversation about the book.

“It is always cause for celebration when a new E. Lockhart book arrives,” says Horowitz. “With Genuine Fraud Lockhart brilliantly combines a unique structure with the raw emotions of fascinating characters into a subversive psychological suspense novel readers will be hard-pressed to put down—and will want to read again as soon as they finish.”

The new keepsake edition will include 32 pages of exclusive content that shares never-before-seen letters written to the main character, Cady, by Gat; the original book proposal; the author’s drawings of Beechwood Island and the Sinclair family tree; an excerpt of Genuine Fraud; and more. The book will retail for $18.99 and will be available wherever books are sold on May 23We Were Liars spent 50 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list (for both hardcover and ebook editions).
