Wildlife by Fiona WoodI'll Give You the Sun by Jandy NelsonGlory O'Brien's History of the Future by A.S. KingRuin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo I Was Here by Gayle Forman

1. Wildlife by Fiona Wood

This is one of those books that I’ve been super excited about ever since I first learned about it. I featured it back in 2013 before it was even announced that it would be published in the US. I hope it lives up to my excitement.

2. I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

I actually started this on audio but couldn’t get into it…(I think it was the narrator). It sounds like  book I’ll love so I’m going to give it another chance by reading it.

3. Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by A.S. King

I love everything that A.S. King does. I’m sure this will be no exception.

4. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet!

5. I Was Here by Gayle Forman

I’ve heard such amazing things about I Was Here.

6. The Last Time We Said Goodbye by Cynthia Hand

Love, love, love Cynthia Hand. I can’t wait to see how she follows up the Unearthly series.

7. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

This sounds dark and oh so like a book I’ll love.

8. The Distance Between Lost and Found by Kathryn Holmes

This takes place in the Smokey Mountains a.k.a. one of my favorite places!

9. The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

The first book was amazing!

Giveaway: The Raven Cycle Series by Maggie Stiefvater

TheRavenCycle

I’ve gotten a bit behind on this series but I read and looooved book one in the series. I’ve said it many times and I still stand by the statement that Maggie Stiefvater can do no wrong. That’s why I’m so excited to be hosting this fabulous giveaway! Blue Lily, Lily Blue hit stores October 21st, here’s some more info on the series:

Book 1: The Raven Boys

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn’t believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

Book 2: The Dream Thieves

Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after….

BlueLily Book 3: Blue Lily, Lily Blue

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.

Cover Reveal: The Summer After You and Me by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

The Summer After You and MeJennifer Salvato Doktorski

 

The Summer After You and Me by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski coming Spring 2015

Sunbathing, surfing, eating funnel cake on the boardwalk—Lucy loves living on the Jersey Shore. For her, it’s not just the perfect summer escape, it is home. And as a local girl, she knows not to get attached to the tourists. They breeze in over Memorial Day weekend, crowding the shore and stealing moonlit kisses, only to pack up their beach umbrellas and empty promises on Labor Day. Lucy wants more from love than a fleeting romance, even if that means keeping her distance from her summertime neighbor and crush, Connor.

Then Superstorm Sandy tears apart her barrier island, briefly bringing together a local girl like herself and a vacationer like Connor. Except nothing is the same in the wake of the storm. And day after day, week after week, Lucy is left to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and broken home. Now with Memorial Day approaching and Connor returning, will it be a summer of fresh starts or second chances?

Add it on Goodreads

Sounds great, right? And that cover is GORGEOUS! Are you planning to read this one? Have you read Jennifer’s other books? They were a lot of fun! I’ll link to my reviews below.
