Weekly Wrap-up + New Books + Leslie Graduates High School

Hello everyone,
It was a crazy week for us that ended in a celebration because Leslie graduated from high school!!
Yep, sometimes floaties are an alternative to leis to give after graduations. It's a Hawaii thing.
Yay!!!! Congratulations Les! She's one of the valedictorians and I'm soooo proud of her. In a few months she's leaving me and going off to college. But we have the summer to party... ahem... read it up.

Because of the craziness, there were only two posts this week.
My first Susan Mallery book and I liked it a lot.

It has many of my buzz words: sisters, mystery, delusions, cryptic diary entries... I'm pretty sure I'm going to like it.

Michelle: I just finished Julie James' It Happened One Wedding and I absolutely loved it. I'm sad that I'll have to wait another year for a new book by Julie (she only publishes one book per year). Her books are always such a treat to read. I am starting Sarah Beth Durst's The Lost (the first book in her new series for adults) later tonight.

Leslie: I'm currently reading Easy by Tammara Webber and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell on my phone.

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (bought)
I have The Raven Boys but I haven't read it. Eventually, I will though so I thought I'd just get book 2.
Breakable by Tammara Webber (bought)
I loved Easy (I'm making Leslie read it) so I have to read Breakable.

Landline by Rainbow Rowell (won)
I haven't won anything in a while and then this appeared on my door because I won it. Yay!!

Giving In by Maya Banks (for review)
I got a finished copy of Giving In but I already reviewed it a few weeks back. Read my thoughts about it and an excerpt of Giving In here.
The Book of Storms by Ruth Hatfield (ARC for review)
A middle grade novel that sounds really, really good. Read the synopsis.

What new books did you guys get? I wanna see! Leave your STS* link so I can come gush over them.

Happy reading,
Michelle & Leslie

  2. I just bought Easy and Fangirl like two weeks ago for myself! The Dream Thieves was definitely better than The Raven Boys for me, but it was a little slow to get started. I want Breakable so bad but am not quite ready to spend the money for it yet. And yet another Rainbow Rowell that I need to read--Landline. Congrats on graduation Leslie! And on valedictorian--that's awesome! Hope you guys have a great week!
