While You Wait
Of course, sometimes there’s a waitlist for new titles. If you’re wondering what to fill the gap with, here are some suggestions.

Don’t Look Back by Jennifer Armentrout
Two girls disappear – only one returns. Samantha – or Sam – remembers little of her former life and nothing of what happened to her friend. As Sam tries to piece her life back together, she discovers that she didn’t much care for who she used to be. But as she tries to piece back together what happened to her, she puts her life at risk because someone does remember what happened the night her friend disappeared and they don’t want Sam to remember – ever.

Walk the Edge - McGarry.jpgWalk the Edge by Katie McGarry
Breanna is the responsible girl, the weird one, the quiet one. She doesn’t fit in at home or at school – she just wants to leave her small town. When a kindness from local bad boy Razor turns against the two of them, warping into blackmail and cyberbullying, the two push back … and the more time they spend together, the more they care for one another.

Embrace by Jessica Shirvington
For fans of Armentrout’s Covenant series (Half-Blood, Apollyon), Embrace follows Violet, 17 and torn between two identities. Angels live among humans – and sometimes, humanity needs protection from angels. It’s not a fight Violet wanted and if chooses wrong it’s not just her life that’s at stake – it’s her soul.
