Morgan (morgzsydney) I would recommend:

SERIES:
1. Wither by Lauren Destefano
2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
3. Private and Privelege (2 series, you should read Private first at least up to the killer.) by Kate Brian. This series is an easy read, but a very entertaining one.
4. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. Its 3 books in one volume. I am currently loving it.

Hi Christine,

The Shape of Desire by Sharon Shinn Coveted by Shawntelle Madison Forbidden by Syrie James Perigee Moon by Tara A. Fuller Fever by Joan Swan Inked Magic by Jory Strong A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink

I did read two stand alone books that came out last year and that I really liked:
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Jennifer C. | 1722 comments Iris Johansen has a new book coming out in April called What Doesn't Kill You. Here's the description.

Catherine Ling was abandoned on the streets of Hong Kong at age four. Schooled in the art of survival, she traded in the only commodity she had: information. As a teenager, she came under the tutelage of a mysterious man known only as Hu Chang—a skilled assassin and master poisoner. As a young woman, she was recruited by the CIA and now, she is known as one of their most effective operatives. Having lived life in the shadows, Catherine is aware of the wobbly moral compass of her existence and even more aware of just how expendable she is to those she deals with. When her old friend Hu Chang creates something so deadly, and completely untraceable, the chase is on to be the first to get it. With rogue operative John Gallo also on the hunt, Catherine finds herself pitted against a group so villainous and a man so evil that she may not survive the quest to protect those she cares about. Iris Johansen is at her page-turning best in this novel that takes you from the corridors of Langley to the alleyways of Hong Kong, and the darkest places of the human soul.

Sounds pretty good and I really like her Eve Duncan books.

I don't know wht genre I would put this in. I would call it an epic love story, but it's not a romance. There's an 'otherworldliness' about it as well because one of the main characters has experiences with beings called 'little people."

It is, however a very heavy read. My brain needed a break after reading it!!

Just a heads up...Series like Fool's Gold by Susan Maller and the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis that have new trilogies coming out this year Can be used for a New to Everyone series Even if you have read the previous books...this is because the trilogy covers a completely different set of people so you can use it in the NtE or in your Bonus NtE from Previous Series!
