Happy February! A nice short month to get back into the swing of things (albeit with hot days and nights). I received a book I’m really looking forward this week and bought a couple too.
The Secret Runners of New York by Matthew Reilly (released 26th March) involves time travel, which sounds really cool (and something that Matthew Reilly would rock). Skye and Red have moved to New York, where a rumour of a global apocalypse is spreading. Skye is invited to join The Secret Runners of New York, who can access the future through a portal. But the future looks terrifying…so why not use the knowledge for revenge? Thanks to Pan Macmillan for the beautifully wrapped ARC.
Listen to Me by Kristen Proby is about Addison, part of the group that runs the hottest restaurant in Portland. She’s decided their venue needs live music, but when her teen rock star crush walks in…well, as an adult she doesn’t need that. Jake deserted the music scene and just wants to play. But on meeting Addison he wants more and of course, that’s when his past decides to catch up with him.
The It Girls by Karen Harper follows Elinor and Lucy, two sisters who rose from nothing to become superstars. Lucy started a fashion empire and married well, but the fate of the Titanic causes a scandal. Elinor is a scandalous novelist based in Hollywood. The sisters’ bond will bring them together but also cause rivalry.
