Will she make it to the end of the year by, um, the end of the year? Your guess is as good as mine. While I realize it's somewhat ridiculous that I persist in trying to compile these lists, I shall persevere, because I find the posts HUGELY helpful. So, please bear with me.
Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone, by Kat Rosenfield:
The specialness isn’t just in Rosenfield’s description, turns of phrase or how she captures the slow, heavy feel of summer. It’s about how she makes every single action, interaction, sometimes even the briefest of moments...feel like a turning point. There’s a constant sense of dread, inevitability and change

New paperbacks (that I've read):
Haunting Violet, by Alyxandra Harvey:
There are usually only a few probable suspects in this genre, and it’s pretty easy to identify the villain early on. Not so in Haunting Violet: At one point or another, EVERYONE’S A SUSPECT. The only person I was immediately able to dismiss was the one that Violet suspected! Right up to the very end, I wasn’t sure whodunit. Which, of course, always makes me deliriously happy.
Anna Dressed in Blood, by Kendare Blake:
Are you a fan of Buffy and Supernatural? Lucky you! I’ve found your next read: Kendare Blake’s Anna Dressed in Blood.
Seriously, guys: DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK.
