First Pretties

It's the first Pretties post of the year! This one may be my favorite, because no matter which covers it features, they represent all my hopes for the year. All the possibilities, including new authors that might become old favorites and old favorites that surprise you in new ways. This time we've got two contemporaries and a historical. One wholly unexpected sequel. All YA.

Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt
This one's got a little of the Jennifer E. Smith This is What Happy Looks Like vibe going on. And while that one did not thrill me, this one has me interested. Opposites attract. Set in a 24 hour period. Something about it leads me to believe it might be solid. It might be the line, "He feels like the doggy bag from his mother's first marriage." Ha!
Due out February 18th

Poppy by Mary Hooper
I've read one of Hooper's previous historicals and really appreciated the writing. This one is set in England on the cusp of World War I and follows a young girl forced by circumstances into servitude. Sounds like there's a love story and I'm betting it's gonna have a tragic end, but I kind of want to meet this Poppy.
Due out May 8th

Just Call My Name by Holly Goldberg Sloan
Okay, seriously. Which one of you out there knew Holly Goldberg Sloan was writing a sequel to I'll Be There and did not tell me?! I love that book so much and my heart about stopped when I saw there would be a follow-up. That said, I AM FULL OF FEAR. Please don't hurt my beloved Sam and Emily and Riddle. Please.
