I’ve written a few posts to talk about books I’m super excited about that haven’t been released yet, but I felt like adding to that title repeatedly like I had been doing was a bit much. See early posts here: 1, 2, and 3. I decided to make this into a realistic regular feature where I do kind of a Waiting on Wednesday wrap-up post for when I add books to my TBR and “jazzed up for this” Goodreads shelf. Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus Pub date: February 5th 2019 Synopsis: Ellery Corcoran has never been to Echo Ridge, but she’s heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen, and five years ago the town became notorious when its Homecoming Queen was killed. Now Ellery has to move there with a grandmother she barely knows. Malcolm Kelly grew up in the shadow of the Homecoming Queen’s death, his older brother the prime suspect. His mother’s remarriage vaults the Kellys into Echo Ridge’s upper crust—but nobody has forgotten what Malcolm’s brother might have done. The town looks picture perfect, but it’s hiding secrets. Before senior year even begins, someone’s declared open season on Homecoming. They’ve promised to make the dance as dangerous as it was five years ago. And, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing. Ellery and Malcolm, the last people to see her, are on a hunt for the truth. But the thing is, secrets are dangerous—and knowing them can be the most […]

I decided to make this into a realistic regular feature where I do kind of a Waiting on Wednesday wrap-up post for when I add books to my TBR and “jazzed up for this” Goodreads shelf.    If You Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say by Leila Sales {May 2018} Synopsis: This provocative and relevant young adult novel is about Winter, a one-time National Spelling Bee Champ with a bright future ahead of her. That all changes after she haphazardly writes a racially offensive tweet that she thought was a harmless joke. What unfolds is a barrage of Internet shaming and rejection from her community and closest friends. Winter seeks to redeem herself, but first must come to terms with what she wrote and understand why there was so much backlash. Excitement: This is definitely a timely book. I have a feeling it will make me uncomfortable and get some second-hand embarrassment. I think that the book blogging universe is sensitive to these issues more than my other “personal” Twitter is, so I’m curious to see what the masses think of this topic instead of just us bloggers. Do you give the person another chance? Do you write them off? My Lady’s Choosing by Kitty Curran & Larissa Zageris {April 2018} […]

I decided to make this into a realistic regular feature where I do kind of a Waiting on Wednesday wrap-up post for when I add books to my TBR and “jazzed up for this” Goodreads shelf.    All We Do is Wait by Richard Lawson {February 2018} I love the idea of characters meeting in a hospital waiting room. I have a feeling this one will obviously pull on the heartstrings, but people pulled together in interesting circumstances is a book plot I’ll always add to the TBR. I also love that this takes place in Mass! This Heart of Mine by CC Hunter {February 2018} Again, people pulled together in unique circumstances. I’ve always been fascinated by books involving organ donation and this one is no exception. The twin brother of the boy whose heart she is receiving doesn’t believe his brother committed suicide, and the two of them grow closer. Together at Midnight by Jennifer Castle {January 2018} Holiday books are my favorite and I don’t think there are as many New Years stories as there should be! This book involves random acts of kindness after witnessing an accident. The two characters seem to have interesting backstories so I’m curious to see how they come together […]
