Here you can find young adult SFF book release calendar I prepared for the site, as well as the schedule of my upcoming blog post. I try to include books recommended or blurbed as diverse, especially own voices, books with LGBTQIA+ cast, books with disability representation, and books with non-white cultural setting, but please note that I haven’t read the books included in the calendar as “RELEASE DAY”. These are the books I intended to read and review. Please do contact me if you have any suggestion, especially regarding books to add or to remove from the list. Enjoy!

RELEASE DAY – The Evaporation of Sofi Snow (Mary Weber)
Ever since the Delonese ice-planet arrived eleven years ago, Sofi’s dreams have been vivid. Alien. In a system where Earth’s corporations rule in place of governments and the humanoid race orbiting the moon are allies, her only constant has been her younger brother, Shilo. As an online gamer, Sofi battles behind the scenes of Earth’s Fantasy Fighting arena where Shilo is forced to compete in a mix of real and virtual blood sport. But when a bomb takes out a quarter of the arena, Sofi’s the only one who believes Shilo survived. She has dreams of him. And she’s convinced he’s been taken to the ice-planet.
Except no one but ambassadors are allowed there.
For Miguel, Earth’s charming young playboy, the games are of a different sort. As Ambassador to the Delonese, his career has been built on trading secrets and seduction. Until the Fantasy Fight’s bomb goes off. Now the tables have turned and he’s a target for blackmail. The game is simple: Help the blackmailers, or lose more than anyone can fathom, or Earth can afford.
