The Book Push – Girls with Sharp Sticks and Girls with Razor Hearts {giveaway}

There is no denying that I am a fan of Suzanne Young. Everything she has written I have loved. She manages to craft these worlds that are so familiar and comforting but adds an element that completely turns the world upside down. I have become very lucky over the years and have gotten to know Suzanne and she is just as amazing as her books. In 2018 she sent me a draft of the first book in her new duology, Girls with Sharp Sticks, and the day she sent it to me I devoured all 400 pages, not stopping until I was finished with every word. It was by far the best book she has ever written and I told her so. It was creepy and entertaining and a story you just didn’t expect. It was also timely in a sense and something a lot of people will want to read. And if you haven’t read it yet, stay until the end for your chance to win a copy.

Anyway, since finishing Girls with Sharp Sticks I have been dying for Girls with Razor Hearts, the follow-up book. Suzanne has been kind enough to share some of it with me as a draft and guys…IT IS SO GOOD! I haven’t gotten to read the end, but I have read about 75% of the first go and it is just beyond words good. And on Friday the cover was released for it and it perfect is so perfect.

 

 

How amazing do they look together? I’m obsessed! Here is a little more about Girls with Razor Hearts:

It’s time to fight back in this second novel in a thrilling, subversive near future series from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young about a girls-only private high school that is far more than it appears to be.

Make me a girl with a razor heart…

It’s been weeks since Mena and the other girls of Innovations Academy escaped their elite boarding school. Although traumatized by the violence and experimentations that occurred there, Mena quickly discovers that the outside world can be just as unwelcoming and cruel. With no one else to turn to, the girls only have each other—and the revenge-fueled desire to shut down the corporation that imprisoned them.

The girls enroll in Stoneridge Prep, a private school with suspect connections to Innovations, to identify the son of an investor and take down the corporation from the inside. But with pressure from Leandra, who revealed herself to be a double-agent, and Winston Weeks, an academy investor gone rogue, Mena wonders if she and her friends are simply trading one form of control for another. Not to mention the woman who is quite literally invading Mena’s thoughts—a woman with extreme ideas that both frighten and intrigue Mena.

And as the girls fight for freedom from their past—and freedom for the girls still at Innovations—they must also face new questions about their existence…and what it means to be girls with razor hearts.

The winner receives 1 copy of Girls with Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young. Ends at 11:59PM EST on August 5th and is US ONLY. Must be 16 or over to enter.

The Book Push – All in Pieces (Suzanne Young)

If you know me you know I love to push books I have on people. If I read it and become obsessed with it I think you need to read it and become obsessed with it too. I’m done this with Lauren Miller’s Parallel, Colleen Clayton’s What Happens Next, Natalie Blitt’s The Distance from A to Z, and more recently Sarvenaz Tash’s The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love. What’s next on my book pushing list? Kind of you to ask. It is actually a little book I finished this weekend that is out in November.

From New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young comes a heartrending new novel about a girl struggling to deal with anger issues while taking care of her younger brother with special needs.

“Anger-management issues.”

That’s how they classified Savannah Sutton after she stuck a pencil in her ex-boyfriend’s hand because he mocked her little brother, Evan, for being disabled. That’s why they sent her to Brooks Academy—an alternative high school that’s used as a temporary detention center.
The days at Brooks are miserable, but at home, life is far more bleak. Savvy’s struggling to take care of her brother since her mom left years ago, and her alcoholic dad can’t be bothered. Life with Evan is a constant challenge, but he’s also the most important person in the world to Savvy.

Then there’s Cameron, a new student at Brooks with issues of his own; a guy from a perfect family that Savvy thought only existed on TV. Cameron seems determined to break through every one of the walls Savvy’s built around herself, except if she lets herself trust him, it could make everything she’s worked so hard for fall apart in an instant.
And with her aunt seeking custody of her brother and her ex-boyfriend seeking revenge, Savvy’s fighting to hold all the pieces together. But she’s not sure how much tighter she can be pulled before she breaks completely.

No joke when I tell you guys you need to add this to your TBR.

I am a proud lover of Suzanne’s series The Program (1, 2, 3, 4). I loved the story and the characters and the work she did with the prequels and I can’t wait to read the next book in the story. But when I tell you All in Pieces is some of Suzanne’s best work I’m not kidding you. This book was just everything. I go into more detail in my review (which will be posted closer to release), but it is simply breathtaking. Every part of the story had my heart in a grip and I never wanted it to end. I wanted more words, more story, more of these fantastic characters. Rarely do I read a book where I actually forget I’m reading a book, and this was one of those rare times.

So yes, I’m doing my “Book Pusher” thing and tell you to add this one to your TBR. You won’t be disappointed. I wasn’t.
