January 2014 Releases!

How are we already halfway through January? And how is it already 2014?!

Not that I’m complaining, because this just means it’s the start of yet another year of AWESOME. And because I need of all of the books! Okay, okay… granted, I can barely see my floors now – but let’s be honest, that isn’t going to stop me. (Yes, I realize I sound like an addict. No, I don’t think I need help. Unless help involves you enabling me and buying me more books – in which case, YES, I DO need your help!).

But before I highlight some of the January MG and YA releases that have caught my eye, I’d like to point out that we have cause to celebrate – because PC’s very own Jodi Meadows is celebrating the release of the last book in her NEWSOUL trilogy! INFINITE is out at the end of this month (EEEEEEEEEEEE!), so this year is off to a damn good start. WOOHOO JODI!

And now, on to the goods!

    So many awesome books. I already read Defy and The Lost Planet. Both are good. I’m dying to read Enders. You missed Cruel Beauty, a Beauty & the Beast retelling.

    I only know this because my find texted me to tell me she loved it but Erased, the final book in the Altered duet came out January 7th: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17899846-erased

    Thanks for this list Vanessa, it was great to see all of the January books together in one place. There are so many!
