This week, our friends at YA Highway ask:



I just cracked open Sara Zarr's HOW TO SAVE A LIFE and am super excited for it. The last book I read was THE STONE GIRL by Alyssa B. Sheinmel, a compelling story about a smart but naive girl who becomes anorexic while dealing with school, boy and friend issues.

I just finished an e-ARC of THE WALLED CITY by Ryan Graudin, which I plan to blog about soon. It's an exciting story set in a dystopian-ish place but inspired by a real-life city. Very cool.

Now I'm onto I LOVE I HATE I MISS MY SISTER by Amélie Sarn (translated to English by Y. Maudet), which I will also blog about this month as part of the YA Diversity Book Club. It's a complete 180º from TWC... Well, except that it also features a strong sister relationship!

I just finished an ARC of THE VANISHING SEASON, which I loved and which broke my heart. Oh, and speaking of breaking me, I also just read the e-ARC OF SCARS AND STARDUST. Dude. (Obviously, read ARCs at your own risk). But now I'm reading an ARC of GUY IN REAL LIFE, which is making me smile wryly to myself so it's looking like a good one.

I really liked The Walled City -- so different than so many books out this year! I'm on a romance roll, blazing path through Kristen Ashley's stories. Happy reading!

Hm I thought How to Save a Life was fascinating, even if it wasn't my type of read. The Walled City looks great and I'm glad Sarah enjoyed The Vanishing Season because it's a book I've had an interest in reading but it seems to have gotten mixed reviews. I'm on and off reading The World We Made, which is super cool, if not a little hard to read al at once.

P.E...TVS has deserved mixed reviews because the book isn't what is advertised as so many complained about. But I loved the relationships at the heart of the story and the setting and the smooth, simplistic writing. To each their own!

Am investigating The World We Made....

Aw that How To Save a Life book looks so good and I'm in love with the cover! Happy reading. :)
