Here’s my week in books:

Books in the Mail: 

mm96 books

The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez – This is an immigrant story about the Rivera family who leave Mexico for the US to get medical care for Maribel, their 15-year-old daughter recovering from a near-fatal accident. This story is also about the love that develops between Maribel and her neighbor Mayor. Looks so good! Thanks, Knoph Books!

Frenemy of the People by Nora Olsen – Won during #LGBTApril. Thanks Bold Strokes Books, Laura, and Cayce! This YA opposites-attract book is about the romance between a bi over-achiever named Clarissa who starts a Gay-Straight Alliance at school, and Lexie, a punk rock lesbian girl who initially can’t be bothered by her.

Finally, Forever by Katie Kacvinsky – Very pretty in person! The red spine accents the red heart quite nicely. I own the other two books in the First Comes Love series in pb so had to complete my set!


E-Books for Review: 

Behind the Scenes by Dahlia Adler – I received this last week and forgot to tell you! This book is about friendship, love, and the Hollywood scene, and it looks really cute. I read a few chapters and can’t wait to get back to it.

Of Scars and Stardust by Andrea Hannah – Claire’s sister mysteriously disappears, and she returns home to help unravel the mystery and deal with her own demons.

Take Me On by Katie McGarry – Ahhh! Love this series. The fourth book in the Pushing the Limits series focuses on Haley and West. Haley’s a champion kickboxer and West is her trainee.

London Falling by Chanel Cleeton- Don’t you have London Calling in your head now? London Falling is the sequel to I See London, about the romance between Maggie and Samir. Maggie is an American attending college in England, and Samir is a senior planning to return to Lebanon for a future he doesn’t want.

Make it Count by Megan Erickson – Kat falls for her math tutor (cute title, right?) even though he’s her boyfriend’s best friend.

I also checked out quite a few new releases & audiobooks from the library- it’s a sickness I tell you!

What’s new in your mailbox?
