OK, each week, we keep exclaiming about how much there is to read on Riveted and it’s always true, we have been putting up a LOT to read, but THIS WEEK, we’re setting a new record for ourselves: we are currently featuring 14 FULL BOOKS and 4 EXTENDED EXCERPTS!

First we have our new reads for this week as usual: we’ve got an extended excerpt of All in Pieces, the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of the Program series, Suzanne Young. Then we’ve got an extended excerpt of 2016 Coretta Scott King Honor Award-winning All American Boys from Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely. And finally, we’ve got a full read of Black Ice, a thriller from the bestselling author of the Hush, Hush Saga, Becca Fitzpatrick.

But wait, that’s not all! This upcoming weekend, Riveted will be traveling to Charleston, SC, for YALLFest and we are psyched! There will be six Simon & Schuster authors at YALLFest this year — Suzanne Young, Jason Reynolds, Brendan Kiely, Jenny Han, Scott Westerfeld, and S.J. Kincaid — and we wanted to give you a little something to read on Riveted from each of them so in addition to the extended excerpts of Suzanne Young’s All in Pieces, Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely’s All American Boys, and S.J. Kincaid’s The Diabolic, we’re also giving you free reads of Jenny Han’s The Summer I turned Pretty and Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies! [Stay tuned for more on YALLFest throughout the week!]

Then, last week’s reads are also still available for the rest of the week: full reads of Jeyn Roberts’s Dark Inside, Alexandra Sirowy’s The Creeping and M. Verano’s Diary of a Haunting, and an extended excerpt of S. J. Kincaid’s The Diabolic.

And as if all that weren’t enough, it’s the final week of our #WeAreHuman Riveted Readathon which includes ANOTHER eight full books and one extended excerpt for your reading pleasure!
