February was a busy month for me. So many awesome things happened with my acquisitions at Entangled that I’ll probably have to split it into a few posts!
First, Nicola Davidson’s The Devil’s Submission, a femme dom Regency novella, and the follow-up to Surrender to Sin, released! Smart Bitches, Trashy Books loved it and gave it an A-grade for good reason, so check out the rave review and go get your copy, because it’s $1.99. The Fallen Series is perfect for fans of feminist romance-driven erotica with a little kink, a lot of heat, and headstrong women who know what they want.
Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron also released! This one is a young adult fantasy thriller that’s unlike anything you’ve ever read, and incredibly compelling. So compelling, in fact, that it earned a Kirkus star, a prestigious designation for books of exceptional merit, and they called it a “rare gem of a book.” Here’s what they had to say:
Island of Exiles was also announced as a Junior Library Guild selection. This is yet another mark of how compelling and thrilling this book is. And if fancy credentials aren’t enough to make you want a copy, let me convince you: I loved Island of Exiles because it’s an intense survival thriller, which is always exciting to me especially if it’s this well done. I also loved how huge and wild and real the world is–I felt like I’d left my own world completely behind when I read this one. It’s so real, it hurt to come back. And for all its complexity and richness, at its heart it’s a story of a soldier girl out to rescue her brother at any cost, in a world where siblings don’t really exist. Right now you can get the paperback for $7.40, so run for it, and check it out on Amazon Barnes and Noble Goodreads or Indiebound
Completely different from those first two, Any Boy But You by Julie Hammerle also released in February! It’s the first in her North Pole, Minnesota series, set in a Stars-Hollow-like town that’s a Christmas tourist village–in North Pole, it’s Christmas 365 days a year. And this first installment is You’ve Got Mail meets Pokemon Go. Bitter rivalry between the town’s two family-run sporting goods stores means Elena and Oliver can’t ever fall for each other–unless maybe they already have, and don’t even know it. At $2.99 for the ebook, you can’t go wrong with this escapist, heartwarming, funny read.
And finally, Julie Hammerle’s brilliant debut, The Sound of Us, went on sale! It’s Pitch Perfect at opera camp, and it’s so nerdy you’ll love it. Every chapter starts with a tweet, and they tell their own little story, too. It’s one of the funniest, most human voices I’ve read in a long time, and it’s all about female friendship and discovering your passions and owning who you are. Kirkus Reviews also loved it, and since the paperback is on sale for less than $4, you don’t want to miss out on this brilliant debut.
