Stock Your Shelves: February 2015 Releases

Happy (almost) February! We have one major snow storm under our belts, and I’m pretty much ready for spring, I’m not sure about you guys. At least while we wait there are books to be read, including these five February releases that I can’t wait to check out!

Review: Dangerous Girls, by Abigail Haas

Review: Dangerous Girls, by Abigail Haas

I feel like I talk pretty frequently about how I sometimes struggle to enjoy young adult books as much as I do adult novels. I used to love them! How have I gotten old enough where the romances and storylines seem juvenile? I don’t think I really have, I just haven’t found that book yet. Every now and then a We Were Liars or […]

Though the short vignette type stories are similar, I found Binary Star to be much grittier and slightly harder to read. The book deals with an anorexic woman […]

The only way to change it, is to read diverse books. Buy them, borrow them, check them out of the library. Show publishers that we need these […]
