Fresh Batch (Oct 16th-22nd)

This week's hot releases
Fresh Batch features some of the hottest releases this upcoming week. The books to feature are exclusively chosen by Giselle.

Flavour of the week:                 
     On The Fringe
     Courtney King Walker

Claire is struggling to overcome the murder of her childhood friend and secret crush, Daniel. Everyone else seems to be moving on with their lives, but she's still trying to cope. The fact that she finds herself alone and drowning on her 16th birthday isn't helping.

Neither is thinking she sees Daniel's face in murky water as she mysteriously resurfaces. But something happened during those four and a half minutes that will make her realize it was not just her imagination.

As Claire and Daniel try to grasp a possible reconnection, other grudge-holding beings have plans of their own. Now, the two of them have to decide if their fleeting relationship is worth the possibility of Claire being trapped on the fringe forever.

Beautifully told, On the Fringe intertwines fresh ideas about devotion, revenge, and the consequences that come with life and death.

Other releases this week (click on images for Goodreads synopsis):



We've got a pretty good week this week. I'm really looking forward to On The Fringe. It sounds very suspenseful and original. I'm also intrigued by Ellen Hopkins first adult novel, Triangles. As for Dearly, Departed: It's a very fun and has a deeply creative zombie lore. I truly enjoyed it. Click here for my review.
