2 Happy Holidays!

Since publishing has pretty much gone on vacation for the rest of the year, and this year has been A LOT, we're going to go ahead and take a break, too. 

We'll be back in January, so we'll see you then! 

In the meantime, we hope you get all the books you asked for as presents!

And we hope you're able to have a wonderful (but SAFE!) holiday season!

And we really, really, REALLY hope we all have a much happier 2021!

Best wishes Happy Reading,

Jocelyn, Halli, Martina, and Elizabeth

0 New Releases This Week 12/7 - 12/13

Publishing is starting to wind down for the year, so there are only two new releases this week. Therefore it only makes sense to immediately add them both to your TBR list! 

Happy Reading,

Jocelyn, Halli, Martina, and Elizabeth

Escaping Eleven
by Jerri Chisholm
Entangled: Teen
Released 12/8/2020

In Compound Eleven, the hierarchy of the floors is everything.

My name is Eve Hamilton, and on my floor, we fight.

Which at least is better than the bottom floor, where they toil away in misery. Only the top floor has any ease in this harsh world; they rule from their gilded offices.

Because four generations ago, Earth was rendered uninhabitable―the sun too hot, the land too barren. Those who remained were forced underground. While not a perfect life down here, I’ve learned to survive as a fighter.

Except my latest match is different. Instead of someone from the circuit, my opponent is a mysterious boy from the top floor. And the look in his eyes tells me he’s different…maybe even kind.

Right before he kicks my ass.

Still, there’s something about him―something that says he could be my salvation...or my undoing. Because I’m no longer content to just survive in Eleven. Today, I'm ready to fight for more than my next meal: I'm fighting for my freedom. And this boy may just be the edge I've been waiting on.
