APCB Adds #2

APCB Adds is a feature where I share my latest Goodreads book additions here to show you what you could be looking forward to. 

2016 Releases:

Publication Date: April 5th, 2016
Publisher: Razorbill

Fiona, an independent loner with wild red hair, leaves her fractured home in Texas for a brand-new life in the Scottish Highlands to be the au pair for Poppy Mackenzie, the young daughter of her mother’s recently deceased childhood friends. Fee, as she’s called, is thrilled to be free of her less-than-ideal home life. But there’s another motive driving her eagerness to flee to the Highlands: the desire to reconnect with her mother, who succumbed to suicide after a long battle with schizophrenia when Fiona was only twelve, leaving her to live with distant relatives of her absentee father.

Fee doesn’t have much time to settle into her new home—a castle maintained by the Mackenzie family fortune—before a series of strange events starts to make her question her sanity. As the attacks on her mental health become more and more intense, Fee finds herself both the pawn and the target in a ruthless, greed-driven plot with roots that go all the way back to her mother. Alone and friendless in a foreign country and half-convinced she’s losing her mind—just like her mother—Fee must rely on her wits and her street smarts to save not only herself but also the lives of her newfound Scottish family.

Meredith Moore’s smart, classic-meets-cool storytelling style delivers fast-paced twists and gobs of drama with raw emotion and literary flair.

Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
A 17-year-old expat Sophia’s last days in Tokyo overlap with Jamie’s first days back, and what Sophia thought would be a week of saying good-bye to friends turns into a week of falling in love.

Bidder's Choice by Kat Helgeson (Simon & Schuster)
The story follows two teens entangled in a cutthroat school tradition: a prom date auction.
Rachel is a teenaged unapologetic fangirl and perfectionist.

She loves reading for the escape it gives from reality and enjoys crying over books, swooning over characters, and laughing out loud over funny lines. She is a semi-recovering Netflix addict and a middle child of three.

You can find her on Twitter @yaperfectionist & Goodreads.

  3. Fiona and Seven Days of You sound great, I can't wait to read them! I will definitely add these books to my tbr. Great job, Rachel!

  4. So. These all sound great. The worst part is that without covers, I never remember if they're already on my TBR so... I go check them all out, just in case. And.... now my TBR has grown. I don't know if I should thank you or yell at you ;)

  5. Definitely looking forward to HOUSE! Anything that has a twinge of scary is a book to keep, imo XP The Bidder's Choice may be interesting... it isn't a thriller is it, though? I have a feeling it's going to be a fluffy contemporary :P
