Happy Monday once again! I don’t know about you but we’ve just about had our fill of romance for the moment and with February coming to an end, our Valentine’s romances on Riveted are finished as well! Well, that’s not entirely true….we’re not featuring any NEW romances this week but you DO still have one more week to read the last few romances from last week: Aaron Karo’s Me You Us, Martina Boone’s Compulsion, Jessica Brody’s Boys of Summer, and A. Destiny’s Never Too Late.
This week though, we’re especially psyched for Peternelle van Arsdale’s The Beast is an Animal! A debut novel, The Beast is an Animal is a delightfully creepy read that feels a lot like a classic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson. We’re featuring an extended excerpt for your reading pleasure, and stay tuned this week for the trailer and guest posts from author Peternelle van Arsdale. We’re also featuring an extended excerpt of Siobhan Vivian’s The Last Boy and Girl in the World, a “transcendent love story” (says Stephen Chbosky, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Perks of Being a Wallflower) about a girl who must say goodbye to everything she knows after a storm wreaks havoc on her hometown. The paperback goes on sale tomorrow (2/28) and while we loved the original cover, we think the paperback cover’s pretty sweet too! We’re also featuring a full read of Perfect Ruin, the first book in Lauren DeStefano’s The Internment Chronicles series
dystopian utopian trilogy. In the floating city of Internment, life seems idyllic…of course, it’s not or it wouldn’t make for much of a story, and when protagonist Morgan Stockhour stumbles upon a conspiracy, Internment’s perfection begins to unravel. The third and final book in the trilogy, Broken Crowns, goes on sale in paperback this week so now is the perfect time to start reading! Finally, we’ve got the great extended excerpt of Lilliam Rivera’s The Education of Margot Sanchez, described as Pretty in Pink comes to South Bronx, available for one more week, check it out!
