January New Release Megalist: The Sequel

There was no way I couldn’t do another big list today – there are too many books coming out today that I love! And I like including a lot of titles, even if I haven’t had a chance to read them, because maybe they are something YOU are excited to read or to learn about. I’m all about discussing books, as many and as often as I can.

MEET CUTE is an anthology of original short stories featuring tales of “how they first met” from some of today’s most popular YA authors. Readers will experience Nina LaCour’s beautiful piece about two Bay Area girls meeting via a cranky customer service Tweet, Sara Shepard’s glossy tale about a magazine intern and a young rock star, and Nicola Yoon’s imaginative take on break-ups and make-ups. This incredibly talented group of authors brings us a collection of stories that are at turns romantic and witty, epic and everyday, heartbreaking and real.

(And like last time, I’m putting a ❤️ next to the books that I have read and loved. There are soooo many more on this list that I can’t wait to read!)

Speaking of new books, on All the Books! this week, Amanda and I discussed several great books, including The Immortalists, Achtung Baby, and Batman: Nightwalker.
