What's New? Wing Jones by Katherine Webber


 
Did you know that Jandy Nelson is one of my favorite authors ever? Yes! she is! I'm dying (DYING) for her new book, and while I wait I love to read books similar to hers. 
To be honest, I don't love the cover of Wing Jones, so I don't know why I read the synopsis, but when I saw "Jandy Nelson meets Friday Night Lights" I had to add this book to my "I'm dying to read" shelf. I hope it doesn't disappoint!
Check it out!

But when tragedy strikes, Wing discovers a talent for running she never knew she had. Wing's speed could bring her family everything it needs. It could also stop Wing getting the one thing she wants.

What's New? To Catch a Killer by Sheryl Scarborough




 


Hey there! I hope you're having a great start of the year. I just found this book and I'm already dying to read it. I love watching TV shows about crime investigations, so, as soon as I read FBI uncle, I knew I had to add this book to my TBR pile! 
Have you heard about To Catch a Killer? It sounds great!
Check it out!

Erin Blake has one of those names. A name that, like Natalee Holloway or Elizabeth Smart, is inextricably linked to a grisly crime. As a toddler, Erin survived for three days alongside the corpse of her murdered mother, and the case—which remains unsolved—fascinated a nation. Her father's identity unknown, Erin was taken in by her mother's best friend and has become a relatively normal teen in spite of the looming questions about her past.

Fourteen years later, Erin is once again at the center of a brutal homicide when she finds the body of her biology teacher. When questioned by the police, Erin tells almost the whole truth, but never voices her suspicions that her mother's killer has struck again in order to protect the casework she's secretly doing on her own.

Inspired by her uncle, an FBI agent, Erin has ramped up her forensic hobby into a full-blown cold-case investigation. This new murder makes her certain she's close to the truth, but when all the evidence starts to point the authorities straight to Erin, she turns to her longtime crush (and fellow suspect) Journey Michaels to help her crack the case before it's too late.

What's New? When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon



 


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Hi, there, lovely bookish friends. I can’t believe it’s 2017 already! To be honest, I feel like I wasted 2016. I didn’t complete my reading challenge *cries* I only 50 or so books. I didn’t finish writing my book (you see, I’m writing a book “for me” in Spanish), I didn’t watch many movies. I didn’t find a second job (though that wasn’t my fault).
I wasted 2016 watching CSI, The Mentalist & Ink Master. I kid you not.
This year didn’t suck too much either, I just feel like I got stuck and there’s almost nothing to highlight about my life (except that I started working with Harper Collins International Sales and Penguin Random House Global (yay!!) AND I found 2 new favorite blogs (Angel Erin Book Obsession & The Eater of Books).
And my family is healthy and safe).
I still have the worst internet in the whole world, so I haven’t been online like I used to in the first years. But I keep reading my favorite blogs and commenting every time I can (sending lots of love to Reading After Midnight and April Reads)

Okay, so that’s enough about me.
Today in WHAT’S NEW? I have to show you THIS book! I don’t remember how I found it, but I’m so, so excited about it. It sounds fantastic! In fact, I’m off to Edelweiss to see if I can request it.

Check it out!

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17285330-the-last-time-we-say-goodbye 

A laugh-out-loud, heartfelt YA romantic comedy, told in alternating perspectives, about two Indian-American teens whose parents have arranged for them to be married.

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Rishi Patel is a hopeless romantic. So when his parents tell him that his future wife will be attending the same summer program as him—wherein he’ll have to woo her—he’s totally on board. Because as silly as it sounds to most people in his life, Rishi wants to be arranged, believes in the power of tradition, stability, and being a part of something much bigger than himself.

The Shahs and Patels didn’t mean to start turning the wheels on this “suggested arrangement” so early in their children’s lives, but when they noticed them both gravitate toward the same summer program, they figured, Why not?

Dimple and Rishi may think they have each other figured out. But when opposites clash, love works hard to prove itself in the most unexpected ways.

Top 10 of 2016
It's almost the last day of the Top Ten of 2016.

 Elias from A Torch Against The Night 
&
Gansey from The Raven King. 
Seriously. I didn't love anyone as much as these two. Don't ask me why because even I don't know. But, oh, how I wish they were real.

   

Since they are my favorite book boyfriends of this year, I'm counting them as #1, 2, 3 and 4 spots. 
My next book boyfriends are like honorable mentions, but hey! I want to have a Top 10. So, here they are. 

 5. Merik from Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

Top Ten of 2016: Best Contemporaries of 2016

Top 10 of 2016
Hello, lovelies! It's already the third day of Top Ten of 2016. I picked "BEST CONTEMPORARY BOOKS" for today since most of the books I read this year were contemporaries.
I have to say that I tag books as contemporary even if they are thrillers or books about mental issues. I'm never sure if that's right, but it's easier for me.
Anyway, these are my fave contemporary books of 2016, again, by reading date.


1. Girl Against The Universe by Paula Stokes.
2. Mosquitoland by David Arnold

  


3. The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett
4. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness (so-not contemporary, I know)



  


5. Places No One Knows by Brenna Yovanoff
6. You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour and David Levithan

     


7. When We Collided by Emery Lord
8. This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

    


9. Girl In Pieces by Kathleen Glassgow
10. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West
