Pretty in Punxsutawney by Laurie Boyle Crompton
This is a Groundhog’s Day meets not only Pretty in Pink, but all those John Hughes movies, and then some. I loved this book so much. As far as YA contemporaries go its up there in my favorites, and I have certainly ready my fair share…as an adult. I know I’m not the target audience for these books, but I am one sucker for teenage angst. Did I not get enough of it when I was a teenager? Don’t know. I love teen agnsty movies just as much as I love the books. So mash them together and ta-da one of Scrill’s favorites.
Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
I mean, can I pick anything else this week? I was so happy that the week I decided to come back was the release week for this book. There was nothing much like coming back out of the reading cave and reading all about Jude & Cardan. And I really don’t think I need to say much more than that. I am so sad that it’s over thought, and I can’t wait to see what Holly drums up next.
King of Fools by Amanda Foody
Okay aside from the fact that there is a bonafide girl gang…there are some super unique relationships in these series. I love all the characters and how dynamic their interactions are. They aren’t just straight friends. They work on loyalty as well as those who are just connected to them beyond basic friendship.
You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn
This book put me in a pseudo-slump. I quit listening to audiobooks and instead switched to listening to country music. Let me make this very clear, I didn’t listen to country music aside from Johnny Cash and Shania Twain in my life. I mean, aside from the uncontrollable it’s already playing in the background at the department store sort of listen. I never intentionally picked it out. I in fact avoided it. What happened during this book? I was hooked. I needed a cowboy in a honky tonk singing and playing a gee-tar. I can’t wait for Erin’s next book because it’s a little more up my alley with some emo/punk stuff. Queue Matt Cuttshall’s Emo’s Not Dead movement IG posts. *Seriously if you liked emo in it’s height and you haven’t seen it, please, I urge you to go see those clips. They’re so perfect.
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
At some point in this book someone makes some soup, but it is enjoyed in another realm. I’m not going to explain that bit, I just remember that they were starving and cold and it was a huge comfort for them despite them not know how it came there. To be honest if I was hiding in a cabin and food suddenly was there it would certainly be questionable, but between starving to death and possible poisoning…what do you have to lose?
Six of Crows by Liegh Bardugo
I’m not even joking when I say that I jumped for joy when I finished this book. I literally jumped for joy. I closed the book jumped up, kicked my heels together and excitedly ran to a coworker and told them I finally finished that book I had started in January. That was last week. Do you get it? I jumped for joy because I finished such an easy read in 11 months. It was good, don’t get me wrong though.
Thanks for checking out my list! Just going to invite anyone who feels like participating!
