Control by Lydia Kang: Science! Romance! A near future world where DNA is bought and sold on the black market! This book is so great. I was lucky enough to read it as an ARC, and I’m still anxiously waiting for the sequel. This book isn’t dystopian, but it has a definite sci-fi bend a la Total Recall and other near future stories. Bonus points for this book being by a person of color AND featuring a main character living with a congenital disorder. Yay, diversity!
Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn: Do you like creepy stories with a side of quirky romance? This story has both in spades. It also has a straight razor carved with girl’s names, a main character that can’t remember who she is, and enough eerie creepiness to make you sleep with all of the lights on. Loved this story.
Nearly Gone by Elle Cosimano: This publishes in March and it should definitely be on your radar. Nearly is a great character and this is a smart mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end. Bonus points for the great and oh so accurate description of life in a trailer park (from personal experience, Elle nails it).

About The Book
Zephyr is on the run from a punishment worse than death when an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend (a surprisingly HOT friend) changes everything. Because it seems like Zephyr might just be the Nyx, a dark goddess made flesh that is prophesied to change the power balance. For hundreds of years the half-gods have lived in fear, and Zephyr is supposed to change that.
But how is she supposed to save everyone when she can’t even save herself?
