New Releases April

We’ve got some great books coming out this month including one I’ve been looking forward to since last year! This first book is the one I’m especially looking forward to. They are all out today so you should check them out!

Greystone Secrets #2: The Deceivers

Until their mother disappeared the Greystone kids,—Chess, Emma, and Finn—didn’t even know another world existed along with this one.

But everything is different there. It’s a mirror to this world, except it’s a broken mirror, things are wrong, evil. Their mom tried to fix it but she and a friend got trapped there along with Natale’s mom Ms. Morales.

Now the four of them Chess, Emma, Finn, Natalie are determined to rescue everyone, but doing so means going back to the other world. Where even telling the truth can be illegal.

All of the kids respond to the other world differently Chess doubts he can be brave enough, Emma’s worried she’s not smart enough to break the code this world will throw at her, Finn doesn’t want to have to pretend he’s okay when everything is out of control.

And Natalie might have the toughest job of all because the other world includes some lies she actually wishes were true and the lines between truth and lie may start to blur.

The first book The Strangers, was amazing, and you can find my review here, Greystone Secrets #1 Review as always be careful of spoilers, but I can’t wait to see what twists and turns this new book throws at us.

The series is by bestselling author Margaret Peterson Haddix.

The book comes out on April 7th, 2020.

Amazon: The Greystone Secrets #2

Ghost Squad

I’ve been waiting for this one too! It’s a diverse book with POC protagonists so I’m always happy to read MG literature like that.

Lucely Luna, ghosts are more than just the family business. Near Halloween when Lucely and her best friend Syd accidentally cast a spell that awakens malicious spirits, that start wreaking havoc throughout St. Augustine

They must find a way to fix their mistake, along the way they join forces with Syd’s witch grandmother Babette, and her cat Chunk, to fight the haunting and reverse the curse and save the town before it’s too late.

With hints of both Coco and Ghostbusters, this novel by Claribel A. Ortega is both spooky and sweet.

The book comes out on April 7th, 2020.

Amazon: Ghost Squad

The Loop

For some reason I’m on a thriller kick during quartine, maybe something to do with all that pent up scared energy, I don’t know. I’m not a scientist, but I do know that thrillers and mysteries are where its at right now for me reading-wise.

The Loop seems like a pretty cool setup. The Loop is a death row for prisoners under eighteen. It focuses on Luka Kane who has just had his sixteenth birthday inside the Loop. He’s already been in two years. Every prisoner is serving a death sentence but can delay it by six months if they opt into different scientific and medical procedures designed to help the world’s elite.

But the outside world isn’t as peaceful as the inmates are being lead to believe, and rumors of a war on the outside are spreading inside the prison. Soon their routines are interrupted, things are happening to the guards and finally, they are left alone in the prison.

Was Luka’s cell only designed to keep him safe? As he escapes through the prison he must get past other inmates bent on killing him, the warden who is losing her mind, rabid animals, and a population turned into murderous monsters.

If he can get through all this maybe he can get out of The Loop, save his family, and figure out who is responsible for all the chaos.

Out April 7th.

Amazon: The Loop
