New Book Releases

Hi all! It's been a while, I know. Things at Casa Murillo have been crazy with the kiddos well into school, me polishing and querying my second novel AND looking for a part-time job, and my hubs and I trying to decide if we want to move. As a result, my blog has suffered and for that I am sorry ): Anywho, here is a list of some YA books just released that you might enjoy. 




Unbreakable (The Legion) by Kami Garcia

*I saw Jon at the Austin Teen Book Festival and he was super cool! Definitely a boy book I would read!




Fault Line by Christa Desir
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13482832-fault-line?from_search=true

*I read an interview about this book and how it's about a girl who is sexually assaulted at a party. It's told from her boyfriend's perspective as he watches her spiral downward. Seems like a powerful story! And half the proceeds of book sales go to Voices and Faces Survivor Testimonial Workshop (how awesome is that?!)
