Riveted Reads: Week of 1/30

YA Fiction Is Our Addiction

Why, hello there, happy Monday! Looking for something to read, perhaps? In case you missed it, we’re getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit early and, well….this is a little awkward *blushes* but…will you be our Valentine?  If you already have plans, it’s totally ok, no pressure, but…well, we like you. Like… like like. So…just think about it, ‘kay?

And while you’re thinking about it, perhaps this will help you get in the proper mood: for the next four weeks, each week we’re going to be featuring FOUR YA romances for your reading pleasure! This week, we’ve got some great ones: first, there’s Until Friday Night, the first book in bestselling author Abbi Glines’ Field Party series (available for a limited time, from now through midnight on Sunday, 2/5!). If you’re looking for some paranormal romance, check out Hush, Hush, the first book in Becca Fitzpatrick’s epic Hush, Hush Saga. Cozy up for a sweet story with Terra Elan McVoy’s Being Friends with Boys, and then top it off Our Song from the Flirt series!

Not into romance? Don’t worry, we’ll still be putting up our usual full reads and extended excerpts on TOP of our Valentine’s day romances each week! This week, you’ve still got a full read of Emily Martin’s The Year We Fell Apart and an extended excerpt of Ellen Hopkins’s latest, The You I’ve Never Known.  Oh, PLUS, we also opened up an extended excerpt of Neal Shusterman’s Scythe in celebration of his recent Michael L. Printz Honor! It’ll only be available to read until this Wednesday so read it while you can, and be sure to enter our sweepstakes for a chance to win one of five signed copies!
