The Weights We Carry by C. D Seventeen
*The Weights We Carry is a beautiful short little poem book.

I want to leave this world behind, jump on a bike, go on a journey without  others, dive deep into the self and let the weight of my human identity dissolve  into the wind. In the wilderness, I see my emotions floating in silence, and I repaint them with my own colour. I hear the purpose of my life defined by others washed away in the rivers, and I rewrite them with my own melody. I taste the bitterness of my history while I bury my sorrows under the pink-coloured beach on a remote island. My past and future end in the pouring rain while I merge my soul with the spirit of the sky creatures. Then I know what it means to be free…

The Orpheus Project by Valarie Sinason
*The Orpheus Project is a physiological thriller and a  harrowing story of sexual abuse, privilege and trauma.

It's Christmas Eve, and a young woman with Down’s syndrome has just disclosed abuse by two men. The problem is she is a member of the British aristocracy and the men she accuses are a top politician and a rock star. How does a national health team struggle with the situation of alleged abuse by the elite and super rich?

Despite a traitor in their midst, the team uncovers the appalling reality of the abusive international cult known as The Orpheus Project with its mysterious American spokesperson and powerful connections.

This is the world of conspiracy theories; the Orpheus Project and the secret society that surrounds it seek to offer a form of immortality through deliberately installed dissociative disorders.

At the core of this powerful novel is the story of a mother and daughter who find a way of reuniting, and the longterm consequences of childhood trauma.

The Push Over by Daney Parker
*The Push Over is a murder mystery with a twist.... we know who the murderer is, but who is the victim?

As reporter Grace investigates the killing of a cyclist, memories of another  murder begin to possess her - the murder she committed…

Trying to come to terms with the crime she believes she has got away with, Grace starts writing her confession. In this twisty-turny domestic thriller, we find out the reasons for the crime of passion that took place on Grace’s wedding day. How each one of four possible victims pushed Grace to her limits, before she pushes one of them to his (or is it “her”?) death from the luxury cruiser where the wedding reception is being held.

Meanwhile, in the peaceful Surrey town where Grace works as a newspaper reporter, there are some strange goings on. Cats go missing, a cyclist dies, and it looks like these events could be connected to an old lady who befriends Grace, called Iris. Could there be two murderesses living within a few streets of each other?

Bright Midnight's by LS Delorme

In Bright Midnights, Amelie has always been different.

Most high school students find life challenging, but 17-year old Amelie has a lot more to contend with than typical teenage angst. Ever since she turned 11, others have been irresistibly drawn to her — with tragic consequences. Her only escape is at night when she flies to different times and places through her “dreams”. Her life begins to change when, on one of her flights, she meets Clovis, an alluring and mysterious young man who hides a secret.

As Amelie finds herself increasingly drawn to him, she learns his story, how it intertwines with her own and finally discovers how to live her life in the real world. Until her own secrets are revealed to the wrong people and that world turns upside down.

Only for the Holidays and Love in Winter Wonderland by Abiola Bello
Fancy a romance with festive Vibes than check out these young adult books by Abiola Bello.

City girl Tia Solanké is dreading the festive period. She’s on a break with her boyfriend and the last thing she wants to do is spend Christmas away from London. 

Arriving at Saiyan Hedge Farm, Tia takes an instant disliking to it. She falls in horse manure, is chased by sheep and the Wi-Fi sucks. How is she meant to stalk her ex now and concoct a fool-proof plan to win him back?

Country boy Quincy Parker and his family run the farm, and this year they’ve been selected to host the biggest event in the town's calendar – the Winter Ball. Preparations are underway, and Quincy is working around the clock to make it a success. The only problem is, he’s told everyone he has a date to the ball, when in reality that couldn’t be further from the truth.

At first, Tia and Quincy don’t see eye to eye, until they realise they both have something to gain by
pretending to be a couple. But when a snowstorm threatens to cancel the Winter Ball, their fake
relationship is put to the test. Will Tia and Quincy be able to keep up the pretence and save the day, or will real feelings get in the way?

Trey Anderson is popular and handsome, and he works at his family’s beloved Black-owned bookshop, Wonderland. Ariel Spencer is quirky, creative, and in need of a holiday temp job to cover her tuition for The Artists’ Studio. An opening at Wonderland is the answer . . . and the start of a hate-to-love journey for Trey and Ariel. When Trey and Ariel learn that Wonderland is on
the brink of shutting down, can they get over their differences and team up to stop the doors from closing before the deadline?
