Enter Title Here by Rahul Kanakia

Expected Publication: August 2, 2016 by Disney-Hyperion

I’m your protagonist—Reshma Kapoor—and if you have the free time to read this book, then you’re probably nothing like me.

Reshma is a college counselor’s dream. She’s the top-ranked senior at her ultra-competitive Silicon Valley high school, with a spotless academic record and a long roster of extracurriculars. But there are plenty of perfect students in the country, and if Reshma wants to get into Stanford, and into med school after that, she needs the hook to beat them all.

What’s a habitual over-achiever to do? Land herself a literary agent, of course. Which is exactly what Reshma does after agent Linda Montrose spots an article she wrote for Huffington Post. Linda wants to represent Reshma, and, with her new agent’s help scoring a book deal, Reshma knows she’ll finally have the key to Stanford.

But she’s convinced no one would want to read a novel about a study machine like her. To make herself a more relatable protagonist, she must start doing all the regular American girl stuff she normally ignores. For starters, she has to make a friend, then get a boyfriend. And she’s already planned the perfect ending: after struggling for three hundred pages with her own perfectionism, Reshma will learn that meaningful relationships can be more important than success—a character arc librarians and critics alike will enjoy.

Of course, even with a mastermind like Reshma in charge, things can’t always go as planned. And when the valedictorian spot begins to slip from her grasp, she’ll have to decide just how far she’ll go for that satisfying ending. (Note: It’s pretty far.)

This book just sounds so unique to me and I cannot wait to start it!! I love the cover and the title too!

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

Expected Publication: August 2, 2016 by Atria Books

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up. She graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant and has a total soft spot for Lily; and the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head, but Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his no dating rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan, her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all too human characters, “It Ends with Us” is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

I love Colleen Hoover’s books! I expect this one to be just as great as all the others and I cannot wait until it is published! The cover is a bit intriguing also!

Why I’m Waiting:

February can’t come fast enough! First of all that cover is gorgeous and the plot sounds like its going to be good. I’m really interested in this because I read Sophie’s other young adult series Firelight and I loved it so I can only hope that I love this one as well. I just hope that the romance isn’t insta-love and that Jordan gives the characters the time to fall in love instead of rushing it!

From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.
For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.
When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.
But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Summary from Goodreads:

A teenage prostitute looking for redemption must face her secrets before they destroy her…When tough teenager Anna ran away to New York, she never knew how bad things would get. After surviving as a prostitute, a terrifying incident leaves her damaged inside and out, and she returns home to the parents she was sure wouldn’t want her anymore.Now she has a chance to be normal again. Back in school, she meets a boy who seems too good to be true. Cute, kind, trusting. But what will he do when he finds out the truth about her past?And when a dark figure from New York comes looking for Anna, she realizes she must face her secrets…before they destroy her.

My Thoughts:

I was a little hesitant to read this book but as most of you already know, I love books that deal with really taboo issues and this one really had my interest from the blurb.

I had always heard stories of runaways that had turned to prostitution but had never realized what would happen if one decided to come back home and try to fit into their old life. Of course it would be difficult after all that they had been through but I never realized how difficult.

This book opened my eyes to all of these questions. I am not sure if the author had interviewed people that had been through this predicament or not but it seemed pretty spot on to me!

I really liked Anna and absolutely understood the reason why she left in the first place. Her father was down right horrible and I had wished that her mother was a tad bit stronger for her. I was secretly glad in the beginning when she was given to the police hoping that her life could change for the better.

There were a few tears shed during the course of this book! I just felt so sorry and sad for Anna that she was trying to do better and be better but the bullies kept putting her down.

I loved the ending! I honestly thought it was perfect and I wouldn’t have changed a thing! On another note, I need to comment on the cover and state how perfect for the book it really is!

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

Please leave a comment to let us know if you will be joining in! The more the merrier!!

Review copies for the Read Along were given by the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

Discussion #1 Chapters 13-26

We are still getting to know the other kids in the glade and kind of getting use to being here. Thomas gets to see what happens when someone gets cast out and that was a little tough to read:( There is NO WAY that I would be able to stand by and let that happen especially if they started crying!

Now the book seems to be getting really interesting! Thomas risks his life to save Albi and he is finally being noticed as something other than a “Greenie”.

The end of Chapter 26 kind of left me on a tad bit of a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to start on Chapter 27!

Leave a comment and let me know what you thought about this week’s reading??

Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch

(Snow Like Ashes #2)

It’s been three months since the Winterians were freed and Spring’s king, Angra, disappeared—thanks largely to the help of Cordell.

Meira just wants her people to be safe. When Cordellan debt forces the Winterians to dig their mines for payment, they unearth something powerful and possibly dangerous: Primoria’s lost chasm of magic. Theron sees this find as an opportunity—with this much magic, the world can finally stand against threats like Angra. But Meira fears the danger the chasm poses—the last time the world had access to so much magic, it spawned the Decay. So when the king of Cordell orders the two on a mission across the kingdoms of Primoria to discover the chasm’s secrets, Meira plans to use the trip to garner support to keep the chasm shut and Winter safe—even if it means clashing with Theron. But can she do so without endangering the people she loves?

Mather just wants to be free. The horrors inflicted on the Winterians hang fresh and raw in Januari—leaving Winter vulnerable to Cordell’s growing oppression. When Meira leaves to search for allies, he decides to take Winter’s security into his own hands. Can he rebuild his broken kingdom and protect them from new threats?

As the web of power and deception weaves tighter, Theron fights for magic, Mather fights for freedom—and Meira starts to wonder if she should be fighting not just for Winter, but for the world.

I am sooooo excited for this book! I loved the first book in the series and seriously believe that it was one of my favorites of 2014! I am hoping that this book will continue to amaze us!

Walk On Earth A Stranger by Rae Carson

Expected Publication: September 22, 2015 by Greenwillow Books

The first book in a new trilogy from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Rae Carson. A young woman with the magical ability to sense the presence of gold must flee her home, taking her on a sweeping and dangerous journey across Gold Rush–era America.

Lee Westfall has a secret. She can sense the presence of gold in the world around her. Veins deep beneath the earth, pebbles in the river, nuggets dug up from the forest floor. The buzz of gold means warmth and life and home—until everything is ripped away by a man who wants to control her. Left with nothing, Lee disguises herself as a boy and takes to the trail across the country. Gold was discovered in California, and where else could such a magical girl find herself, find safety? Rae Carson, author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorns trilogy, dazzles with this new fantasy that subverts both our own history and familiar fantasy tropes.

Walk on Earth a Stranger, the first book in this new trilogy, introduces—as only Rae Carson can—a strong heroine, a perilous road, a fantastical twist, and a slow-burning romance. Includes a map and author’s note on historical research.

I have never read a book by Rae Carson but I have heard many great things about her writing. This books sounds really intriguing and the cover is gorgeous! If you hop on over to Goodreads, you can read the first 9 pages and see all of Ms. Carson’s notes while editing the book:)
