The Original Ginny Moon by Benjamin Ludwig

Standard

Want to experience the world through the eyes of another? With the help of Benjamin Ludwig you can see the world through the eyes of Ginny Moon. Ginny is just your average teen. She just sees the world a little differently. Ginny is autistic. Her world is simple but so utterly complicated. In her mind, Ginny’s mission is clear but the world around her just can’t seem to understand. 

Mr. Ludwig is masterful at showing the reader how quickly we judge, misinterpret, and react to things we don’t fully understand. His characters evoke such emotion that you will want to champion for Ginny and possibly slap a few others. 

It’s hard not to gush about this book without revealing any spoilers but this is me gushing. Please, just read it when it releases this Spring on May 2, 2017. 

A copy of this book was generously given to me from HarperCollins Canada in the gorgeous packaging you see in the photo. Thanks to Cory & Kate at HCC! (And a shout out to Emma for the lovely Ginny Moon boxes!) Hearing Benjamin Ludwig speak about Ginny Moon was a wonderful experience. #IndigoEmployee

RoseBlood by A.G. Howard 

Standard

For “Phans” of Phantom of the Opera this discriminating and imaginative retelling is, simply put, phantasmagorical! 

Anita Howard’s ability to retell one of the greatest tragic love stories of all is masterful. She’s already proven that she can modernize a beloved fairytale and give it new life with due respect in her Splintered series and this standalone is no exception. 

The lyrical prose and romantic exposition of the original is mirrored beautifully in Howard’s narration which interchanges between Rune’s POV and a third-person narrative. The story is set in modern day France but has retained the gothic feel in the setting. 

No spoilers. This supernatural mystery is romantic, suspenseful, and brilliant. The main theme of “Phantom” exists, but Howard has reimagined the story so interestingly that you will not be disappointed. And, once again, her cover artist, Nathalia Suellen, wields her magic on yet another gloriously beautiful cover. 

Enjoy!
