My pick for this week is... Firstlife by Gena Showalter!
NO SECOND CHANCE.
Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.
There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.
In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…
The reason I am so excited for this novel is because Gena Showalter knows how to write! She wrote one of my favorite guilty pleasure series, The White Rabbit Chronicles. I did a review of the last book in the series here if you want too check it out! I have high expectations for this one and I hope I am not disappointed! I don't know whether or not this will become a series, but I'm sure it will be great either way!
I haven't read a novel with a premise quite like this one, so I am excited for that aspect! Since the premise does seem so original, I just don't want it to fall into some common tropes. Here's hoping that Tenley isn't a special girl unlike anyone else who unknowingly holds the key to saving the universe!
