Pretty covers of January 2019


Looking at the pretty covers in the Contemporary section I found two that caught my eye Golden Child by Claire Adam and Elsey Come Home by Susan Conley. First is about father’s search for a missing son, and is set in rural Trinidad. The second book is about a former painter, who drowns her unhappiness in alcohol and constant worry, whose husband is giving her an ultimatum to go on a mountain retreat or they are done.

I rarely find pretty covers in the mystery and thriller section, but in January a translation of French novel – The Last of the Stanfields by Marc Levy will be published and I adore the cover. It’s a novel about a journalist who received alluding to a crime committed by her deceased mother. She meets a stranger who received a similar letter about his mother, which brings them to a journey into their families’ past.

2019 releases by my favourite authors


Aurora Rising – May 7th

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic.

YA Fantasy


Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi – MARCH 6

With the help of her brother Tzain and the fugitive Crown Princess Amari, she sets off on a journey to restore her people’s magical abilities.

In the face of danger, death, and a star-crossed romance, Zélie must grapple with the ramifications of bringing magic back to her people — and come to terms with her own powers.
