New Releases

Happy early book birthday to the two books coming out this Tuesday (5/24)! Are either of these books on your to-read pile?

moonOutrun the Moon by Stacey Lee
San Francisco, 1906: Fifteen-year-old Mercy Wong is determined to break from the poverty in Chinatown, and an education at St. Clare’s School for Girls is her best hope. Although St. Clare’s is off-limits to all but the wealthiest white girls, Mercy gains admittance through a mix of cunning and a little bribery, only to discover that getting in was the easiest part. Not to be undone by a bunch of spoiled heiresses, Mercy stands strong—until disaster strikes.

On April 18, an historic earthquake rocks San Francisco, destroying Mercy’s home and school. With martial law in effect, she is forced to wait with her classmates for their families in a temporary park encampment. Mercy can’t sit by while they wait for the Army to bring help. Fires might rage, and the city may be in shambles, yet Mercy still has the ‘bossy’ cheeks that mark her as someone who gets things done. But what can one teenaged girl do to heal so many suffering in her broken city? [Image and summary via Goodreads]

IncriminatedIncriminated (Emancipated #2) by M.G. Reyes
Scandal, romance, treachery, and murder—all under one roof. And no one to clean up their messes. Incriminated is the thrilling second book in the Emancipated trilogy, where limits are pushed, friendships are tested, and the truth has a nasty way of showing up uninvited.

There’s trouble in paradise. Six teens legally liberated from parental control—the bad boy, the good girl, the diva, the hustler, the rocker, and the nerd—all share a house in Venice Beach, and they all have one thing in common: murder.

After a streak of hookups, heartbreaks, and bad decisions, the housemates’ once perfect life is falling apart. One is caught in a forbidden romance with a Hollywood heartthrob, while another puts her dreams on the line for one little kiss. One harbors a dark truth that could save a life, while another’s risky business puts all their lives in danger. And before they know it, the friends are fighting like family. But when an uninvited houseguest and a deadly accident entangle them in a conspiracy none of them saw coming, pulling together is the only way out. Alone, none of them can cover up the lies. Together, none of them can be trusted. [Image and summary via Goodreads]

  1. “Outrun The Moon” by Stacy Lee already on my book radar. Yay! It will take awhile for library to get copy.

    But I am on the waiting list! put in my request thanks to your blog early promo of it.

    I will wait/skip Emancipated pt 2 since it’s too romance + mystery drama, intense plot for me.

    plus it’s middle of trilogy, not stand alone.

    I don’t read trilogy or big series, sagas much. I don’t wanna risk saying a spoiler before other ppl finished.

    when I hear spoilers of saga, it’s usual sad news. my fave charas tend to be friends or respectful rivals

    (not enemies, just differ. team or opinion than main chara)

    so main charas or heroes often live free or happy. the side charas I cheer for dont always get good luck or nice ending.

    anyway, thanks for posting!
