OCD Love StoryStarglassA Really Awesome MessIt's Just a F***ing Date: Some Sort of Book About Dating

OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu
I'm pretty excited about this book about a girl who obsessed with a boy. I love this cover with the yellow tape that says, "I will not stalk that boy" over and over.
Starglass by Phoebe North
About a city on a spaceship searching for refuge. You had me at spaceship.
A Really Awesome Mess by Trish Cook and Brendan Halpin
This books follows two teens who meet at a reform school. I've heard pretty positive things so far.
It's Just a F***ing Date by Greg Behrendt and Amiira Puotola
Ok, so this is kind of weird, but I like the occasional dating book even though I'm happily married. Mostly because I like to think about how elements of non-fiction like this can be used in my fiction. Seriously, I love my husband.

What I snagged from the library

The Ocean at the End of the LaneSpellbindingDear Girls Above Me: Inspired by a True Story17 & Gone

Yay!
Spellbinding by Maya Gold
About a girl who is a descendant of the Salem witches.
Dear Girls Above Me by Charlie McDowell
Apparently this author writes a popular twitter account that details the lives of the ditzy girls who live above him. It sounds pretty funny.
17&Gone by Nova Ren Suma
I've heard great things about this one. I gave the ARC a try a few months ago and couldn't get into it, but I'm going to give the finished book a try after so many friends seemed to love it.

Well, that's all for me this week. What did you add to your shelves this week? Link me up!

  1. I've been wanting to read OCD Love Story and Starglass so I'm curious to see whether you like them. And 17 & Gone has been on my TBR list for a few weeks--not a good sign that you couldn't get into it, but that's happened to me before and I ended up loving the book. Have fun reading!

  4. I'm so excited to read OCD Love Story. I have it, but I haven't gotten to it yet (BUT SOON!). I can't wait to hear your thoughts because I haven't seen many reviews for this one yet (probably because it's not out yet). Also, A Really Awesome Mess looks good! I haven't heard about that one so I'll have to wait for your review!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
