Title: I Am Here Now
Author: Barbara Bottner
Genre: YA Historical, Coming of Age
Release Date: 04 August 2020

Summary:

Set in the 1960s, Barbara Bottner’s I Am Here Now is a beautiful novel in verse about one artist’s coming of age. It’s a heartbreaking, powerful and inspiring depiction of what it’s like to shatter your life—and piece it all back together.

You can’t trust Life to give you decent parents, or beautiful eyes, a fine French accent or an outstanding flair for fashion. No, Life does what it wants. It’s sneaky as a thief.

Maisie’s first day of High school should be exciting, but all she wants is to escape.

Her world is lonely and chaotic, with an abusive mother and a father who’s rarely there to help.

So when Maisie, who finds refuge in her art, meets the spirited Rachel and her mother, a painter, she catches a glimpse of a very different world—one full of life, creativity, and love—and latches on.

But as she discovers her strengths through Rachel’s family, Maisie, increasingly desperate, finds herself risking new friendships, and the very future she’s searching for.

Release Date:
28 July 2020

Summary:

Isolated in the forests of Western Canada, Black Hollow is a town with a dark secret. For centuries, residents have foretold the return of the Dreamwalker—an ominous figure from local folklore said to lure young women into the woods with the help of wolves, and possess them. Yet the boundary between fact and fable is blurred by a troubling statistic: every now and again, women do go missing. And after they return, they almost always end up dead. 

When Kai wakes up next to the body of a recently missing girl, his memory blank, he struggles to clear his already threadbare conscience. Miya, a floundering university student, experiences signs that she may be the Dreamwalker’s next victim and finds herself caught between a supernatural kidnapping and a senseless murder. And after the death of a young patient, crestfallen oncologist Mason embarks on a quest to debunk the town’s superstitions, only to find his sanity tested.

Yet a maelstrom of ancient grudges, forgotten traumas, and deadly secrets loom in the foggy forests of Black Hollow. Can three unlikely heroes put aside their fears, and unite to confront a centuries old evil? Will they uncover the truth behind the fable, or will the cycle repeat?

Title: Zon (Beyond #5)
Author: Maureen A. Miller
Genre: YA Sci-Fi Adventure
Release Date:
22 June 2020

Summary:

From USA TODAY bestselling author, Maureen A. Miller, comes this young adult cosmic adventure.

With a father from the planet, Ziratak, and a mother from Earth, Zon’s challenges are galactic. Zon doesn’t possess superpowers, though. If anything, he’s a bit of a klutz.

In Ziratakian folklore, the tale of the Temple of the Monarch has been passed down for generations. As legend has it, a series of miniature globes lead to the temple’s gate.

Folklore…nothing more.

Except, Zon knows of a cave with small globes in it. And with one clumsy mishap, he triggers the gate–opening a portal to other worlds.

A trip through this vortex transports him to Earth, where the first human he encounters is a young woman with challenges of her own.

This is a brand new saga, and a new generation. There is no need to read the BEYOND series. However, for readers of the series, you will enjoy this continuation of the epic science fiction adventure.

Title: Grim (Reapers MC Series #13)
Author: Elizabeth Knox
Genre: MC Romance
My rating:
3 of 5 stars

Grim’s blurb is a summary of the book, and I feel like I got what the blurb offered, so I have no room to complain.

Natalie and her daughters, Aggie, Davina, and Sorcha, have started new lives in Montana after her husband horribly attacked Natalie. It’s not been a smooth restart for the ladies, and there is dissension in the ranks because Davina doesn’t believe her daddy did the things that her sister and mother say he did. She wants her mom to get over her drama and forgive him to be a family again. 

Enter Grim and the–you know what I don’t know the MC wow that isn’t a good sign–The Reapers MC, a series Elizabeth Knox is into 13 books deep. Grim meets Natalie and takes a fancy to her. He asks her out, and it’s a bit of an insta-love situation. The two quickly romance one another, and suddenly the book is over, and we are enjoying a HEA. It’s a fast read.

Title: Big Bad Claws (Fever Brothers #2)
Author: Michele Mills
Genre: Alien Romance
Rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read Big Bad Claws and immediately went and one-clicked three other first in series this author wrote, so it’s safe to say I liked it.

Lila is a shut-in. She is the heir to her family’s business ventures, but she certainly isn’t ready to join society. She’s happy with her little world with her house staff and her cats. Lila would happily leave the family business to the other members of her family. And all would be well if an “ethical” assassin didn’t warn her that someone wanted her dead and then escaped her of the planet to a “safer” place. Now she is lost, in the open, under the outdoors, in a strange land, without protection.
