Goodreads Favorites lists – Recent additions
Do you have a favorites shelf on Goodreads? It’s our favorite of all our shelves (ha!), and every once in a while, we peruse it just to think about the love we have for a handful of books. We’ll have to post about our all-time favorite books sometime soon, but for now we want to mention the most recent additions to our combined favorites lists:

Debut Author Highlight
Heart of Mist – Book 1 in Helen Scheuerer’s debut series is such a delight! It does what any great initial book needs to do: introduces complex characters, builds an intriguing world, and provides many mysteries, some solved in this book and some to be solved later in the series. And Scheuerer’s prose is clean and beautiful. We highly recommend this book, which was released August 31st. Read our full (spoiler-free) review here.
Waterfall – I love time travel so when I saw this book on a friend’s Goodreads shelf, I decided to give it a try.

Waterfall didn’t disappoint in that regard.While spending her summer vacation with her archeologist mom, Gabi is thrust back to fourteenth century Italy after entering a tomb where she knew she wasn’t supposed to be.

News in the YA book world
We are super excited about the recent release of the first in the DC Icons series. One of the most exciting things about this series is that each of the four are written by four of our well-known YA authors: Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Sarah J Maas, and Matt de la Pena. Have you picked up Wonder Woman: Warbringer yet? Let us know what you think in the comments. A little wait for Batman though, it is set to release January 2, 2018. Catwoman will be the third, released later in 2018 and Superman won’t hit book shelves until 2019. It’s yet to be seen whether or not the four books create one linear story, each building on the next, or if each is a completely separate stand-alone story. My guess is the latter but my hope is the former!
