So here we are finally, the end of January. Pretty sure it’s been 30,000 days but what do I know! Anyway! Let’s cheer ourselves up by going through books that are coming out in February, my Birthday month. There seemed to be a lot coming out this month so it’ll be interesting though I didn’t find any I personally liked the look of. You can view the full list here.
Last One at the Party
by Bethany Clift
It’s November 2023. The human race has been wiped out by the 6DM virus (Six Days Maximum – the longest you’ve got before your body destroys itself). The end of the world as we know it. Yet someone is still alive. Alone in a new world of burning cities, rotting corpses and ravenous rats, one woman has survived. A woman who has spent her whole life compromising what she wants and hiding how she feels to meet other people’s expectations. From her career to her relationships, to what she wears and where she lives, she’s made a lifetime of decisions to fit what other people want her to be. But with no one else left, who will she become now that she’s completely alone?
Who doesn’t love a dystopian novel about a virus to distract us from our reality? The reality of the dystopia-like world with the virus.

Nobody knows Delilah like Logan does. Nobody. He makes sure of it by learning everything he can through her social media and watching her through a hidden camera he has trained on her house. Some might call him a stalker. Logan prefers to be called “romantic.” But after Logan sees Delilah killing her abusive stepfather, he realizes there’s still more about her to discover. His sweet, perfect Delilah isn’t so perfect after all. Delilah knows she should feel guilty, but all she feels is free. She’s so over the men in her life controlling her. Except Logan saw what she did, and he won’t let her forget it. Delilah is done being the victim. And she refuses to be a character in Logan’s twisted fantasy. If Logan won’t let her go… she’ll make him.

The United States government, now called the Confederation, has redefined what it means to be “American.” The parameters are narrow; the exceptions few. In danger and on the run, two teens who fall outside the “correct” Confederation designation must join forces on a thousand mile journey north for safety. But survival means relying on strangers and not everyone is who they appear to be. Who do you turn to when the only person you can trust is yourself, and one wrong whisper can be the difference between freedom and imprisonment, life and death?
