Alexa S. - I have an odd fascination with grief, and seeing how different people manage to portray the many different ways it gets experienced. Grappling with the concept of grief is what makes The Fragile World sound so interesting to me, and I really think I’d like to give this one a shot at some point!

Brianna - I love with books with alternating POVs and this one sounds really good.

Alexa S. - I always enjoy these posts because I get stellar recommendations from you! I actually have Empire Girls for review, and I’m pretty psyched because (1) sisters, (2) New York and (3) 1920s! I shall report back 😉

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Harlequin does have a good mix of non-romance titles and I’m happy to see them featured here! And ohhh Earth Meets Water definitely caught my eye.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Jason Mott = NC author. LOVE his imagination and the covers of his books. LOVE.

Ginger @ GReads! - Empire Girls sounds really good. Recently in my social studies class we’ve been discussing NYC (and other areas of the US) during the 1920s. That time really fascinates me. I bet this book would be good as a movie, or maybe even a TV mini series.

Alexa Y. - This book sounds utterly fascinating. I know you already mentioned it to me, but your review has really convinced me that I WANT to read this book. It sounds mysterious and thrilling and very different — and I’m always a big fan of stories like that.

Andrea @Cozy Up With A Good Read - Wow, this doesn’t really sound like a book I would find coming from Harlequin, but it sounds absolutely enthralling. I’m really interested in the idea that the story is told from the perspective of a 9-year-old who will never get the full story herself. I’m so intrigued by your review and I really want to know what happens!

Jess, Books and Sensibility - This sounds like a thrilling read and I’ve been trying to read more adult fiction. I think I’ll add this to my goodreads.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Oh my gosh! I can’t tell if I should read this one! On the one hand, this cover has teased me since I first saw it because it really is beautiful and you know I’m drawn in by beautiful covers. But on the other hand, the thriller-y stories tend to make me all up in knots! I don’t know! I’ll have to let you tell me if this is an Asheley book. And I’ll trust you. It sounds interesting with the young narrating voice but also kind of creepy with the secrets and the snowstorm and disappearance! Great review, though, because my mind is turning and turning…

Candice @ The Grown-Up YA - Wow! This one sounds AMAZING! Definitely going to hunt this book down and read ASAP!
