The Unexpected Everything By: Morgan Matson. I read Matson’s book, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour in high school and loved it, so I’m super excited to read more of her books! Krista already read The Unexpected Everything this year and loved it, so i’m excited to finally get to it!
Bossypants By: Tina Fey. I loooooovvee Tina Fey and I haven’t read any non-fiction in a while so I’m ready to pick this up! I’m also excited to hear this on audiobook because Tina narrates it herself!
Code Name Verity By: Elizabeth Wein. I haven’t picked up a historical fiction novel since The Book Thief By: Markus Zusack so I’m really excited to be picking up another from the genre! Code Name Verity features a female pilot, which sounds awesome, so I’m sure I’ll love this book!
When Dimple Met Rishi By: Sandhya Menon. This is a 2017 new release as well as Menon’s debut novel. I’ve heard amazing things about this book and even though i’m not typically a mood reader, it’s seems like the perfect summer read! It features two Indian MCs so yay for diversity!! I’m super excited to get to this!
Once and for All By: Sarah Dessen. This is another 2017 new release! Both Krista and I have been reading Dessen’s books since middle school! They’ve meant so much to us so I’m so happy to be getting to this one soon! As an added bonus, it also seems like a perfect summer read!
The Truth About Forever By: Sarah Dessen. I read this book back in middle or high school and It’s always been my favorite Dessen book. I even got it signed by her this year and it was definitely one of the highlights of my year so far! I’m excited to reread this and I’m looking forward to rereading all of her books at some point!
Flame in the Mist By: Renee Ahdieh. Yet another 2017 new release that I’ve been so hype about since I heard of its existence! This isn’t an official retelling but it’s been compared to the likes of Mulan, who is my favorite disney princess, so naturally I’m all here for it! Also, the cover is beautiful and Krista and I were lucky enough to get this book signed by Renee herself! She’s so sweet and she seems like a beautiful human-creature!
Year of Yes By: Shonda Rhimes. My love for Shonda runs deep! i love all the shows that she’s created and produced and I have such respect for what she’s doing for television right now. I’ve mentioned having a dream of writing for television one day, so i’m excited to read this book to get a look inside the mind of one of the most successful television writers out there!
Six of Crows By: Leigh Bardugo. I have yet to read anything by Leigh Bardugo but I’ve heard great things about her work, and I’m excited to start with this book! It’s the first in a duology and though I’ve heard rave reviews about it, I know almost nothing about it. I’m excited to go into it blind!
The Raven Boys By: Maggie Stiefvater. This is another book that I’ve heard great things about but don’t know very much about. I want to go into it blind as well. It is the first book in the Raven Cycle series. In high school Krista and I both read most of The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Stiefvater and we loved them, so I’m excited to start The Raven Cycle series.
