This Golden Flame by Emily Victoria
Change your fate. Pay the price. An Ember in the Ashes meets Mask of Shadows in Emily Victoria's #ownvoices debut YA fantasy, an epic adventure full of magic, rebellion, and finding where you truly belong.
Orphaned and forced to serve her country's ruling group of scribes, Karis wants nothing more than to find her brother, long ago shipped away. But family bonds don't matter to the Scriptorium, whose sole focus is unlocking the magic of an ancient automaton army. In her search for her brother, Karis does the seemingly impossible: she awakens a hidden automaton.
Intelligent, with a conscience of his own, Alix has no idea why he was made. Or why his father - their nation's greatest traitor - once tried to destroy the automatons. Suddenly, the Scriptorium isn't just trying to control Karis; it's hunting her.
Together with Alix, Karis must find her brother . . . and the secret that's held her country in its power for centuries.
Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee
Grom the author of Lucky Few comes a “refreshing” (Booklist, starred review) teen novel about Internet fame, peer pressure, and remembering not to step on the little people on your way to the top!
After a shout-out from one of the internet’s superstar vloggers, Natasha “Tash” Zelenka suddenly finds herself and her obscure, amateur web series, Unhappy Families, thrust in the limelight: She’s gone viral.
Her show is a modern adaptation of Anna Karenina—written by Tash’s literary love Count Lev Nikolayevich “Leo” Tolstoy. Tash is a fan of the 40,000 new subscribers, their gushing tweets, and flashy Tumblr gifs. Not so much the pressure to deliver the best web series ever.
And when Unhappy Families is nominated for a Golden Tuba award, Tash’s cyber-flirtation with a fellow award nominee suddenly has the potential to become something IRL—if she can figure out how to tell said crush that she’s romantic asexual.
Tash wants to enjoy her newfound fame, but will she lose her friends in her rise to the top? What would Tolstoy do?
