Perfect Lies

Perfect Lies (Mind Games #2) by Kiersten White

Goodreads | Purchase
Annie and Fia are ready to fight back.
The sisters have been manipulated and controlled by the Keane Foundation for years, trapped in a never ending battle for survival. Now they have found allies who can help them truly escape. After faking her own death, Annie has joined a group that is plotting to destroy the Foundation. And Fia is working with James Keane to bring his father down from the inside.
But Annie’s visions of the future can’t show her who to trust in the present. And though James is Fia’s first love, Fia knows he’s hiding something. The sisters can rely only on each other – but that may not be enough to save them.

 

 

Maybe One Day redesign

Maybe One Day by Melissa Kantor

Goodreads | Purchase
Critically acclaimed author Melissa Kantor masterfully captures the joy of friendship, the agony of loss, and the unique experience of being a teenager in this poignant new novel about a girl grappling with her best friend’s life-threatening illness.
Zoe and her best friend, Olivia, have always had big plans for the future, none of which included Olivia getting sick. Still, Zoe is determined to put on a brave face and be positive for her friend.
Even when she isn’t sure what to say.
Even when Olivia misses months of school.
Even when Zoe starts falling for Calvin, Olivia’s crush.
The one thing that keeps Zoe moving forward is knowing that Olivia will beat this, and everything will go back to the way it was before. It has to. Because the alternative is too terrifying for her to even imagine.
In this incandescent page-turner, which follows in the tradition of The Fault in Our Stars, Melissa Kantor artfully explores the idea that the worst thing to happen to you might not be something that is actually happening to you. Raw, irreverent, and honest, Zoe’s unforgettable voice and story will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.

 

 

Bright Before Sunrise

Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt

Goodreads | Purchase
When Jonah is forced to move from Hamilton to Cross Pointe for the second half of his senior year, “miserable” doesn’t even begin to cover it. He feels like the doggy-bag from his mother’s first marriage and everything else about her new life—with a new husband, new home and a new baby—is an upgrade. The people at Cross Pointe High School are pretentious and privileged—and worst of all is Brighton Waterford, the embodiment of all things superficial and popular. Jonah’s girlfriend, Carly, is his last tie to what feels real… until she breaks up with him.
For Brighton, every day is a gauntlet of demands and expectations. Since her father died, she’s relied on one coping method: smile big and pretend to be fine. It may have kept her family together, but she has no clue how to handle how she’s really feeling. Today is the anniversary of his death and cracks are beginning to show. The last thing she needs is the new kid telling her how much he dislikes her for no reason she can understand. She’s determined to change his mind, and when they’re stuck together for the night, she finally gets her chance.
Jonah hates her at 3p.m., but how will he feel at 3 a.m.?
One night can change how you see the world. One night can change how you see yourself.

 

 

Insanity

Insanity by Susan Vaught

Goodreads | Purchase
Never, Kentucky is not your average scenic small town. It is a crossways, a place where the dead and the living can find no peace. Not that Forest, an 18-year-old foster kid who works the graveyard shift at Lincoln Hospital, knew this when she applied for the job. Lincoln is a huge state mental institution, a good place for Forest to make some money to pay for college. But along with hundreds of very unstable patients, it also has underground tunnels, bell towers that ring unexpectedly, and a closet that holds more than just donated clothing….When the dead husband of one of Forest’s patients makes an appearance late one night, seemingly accompanied by an agent of the Devil, Forest loses all sense of reality and all sense of time. Terrified, she knows she has a part to play, and when she does so, she finds a heritage that she never expected.
With her deep knowledge of mental illness and mental institutions, Susan Vaught brings readers a fascinating and completely creepy new book intertwining the stories of three young people who find themselves haunted beyond imagining in the depths of Lincoln Hospital.

  1. That’s a lot of New Releases, but I’m managed to get myself a copy of Flirty Dancing off NetGalley, so I’m excited for that one. I’ve heard great things about Maybe One Day too, so I may have to consider that one.

  2. I’m looking forward to Jandy Nelson’s new offering! I adored The Sky Is Everywhere.

  3. Hmm…the Shattered Secrets one looks an awful lot like Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork Princess

  4. The Perilous Sea looks amazing! I’m going to check that trilogy out. :p Sounds like it’s perfect for me.

  7. Ahh so many pretty covers and releases this week! Rain Reign’s cover kind of reminds me of Maybe One Day’s original cover when the silhouettes of the two main characters were running through a field or something? And I think it’s so fun that I know which covers are sequels to which books just because the covers coordinate (that’s literally one of my favorite things about a series, when the covers match). Also really happy that Maybe One Day’s coming out; that one was so good and I’m so happy it’s officially out and about! Thanks for sharing, Steph! <33

  9. […] Cuddlebuggery Book Blog reveals some Hot New Titles […]

  10. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but
    I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for novice
    blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
    Justine recently posted…JustineMy Profile

  11. Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you penning this post and the rest of
    the website is really good.

  12. I believe what you published made a great deal of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you added a little
    content? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your
    website, however what if you added a title that grabbed
    a person’s attention? I mean Hot New Titles: February 23,
    2014 | Cuddlebuggery Book Blog is kinda vanilla. You ought to
    look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write post titles
    to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a related
    video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
    Daniele recently posted…DanieleMy Profile

  13. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if
    you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!
