Hey, everyone! It’s time for a reading update. Wow, these are way shorter if I do them monthly. (Ha.) Anyway, here’s the list of books I read during August from first to last.
1. Renegades (Renegades #1) by Marissa Meyer, YA superhero/futuristic
2. Competence (Custard Protocol #3) by Gail Carriger, steampunk
3. My Sophomore Year of Rules (School Dayz #3) by Jennifer DiGiovanni, YA romance
4. Too Wilde to Wed (The Wildes of Lindow Castle #2) by Eloisa James, historical romance
My favorite of the month was MY SOPHOMORE YEAR OF RULES with TOO WILDE TO
WED coming in a close second. Gotta love those romances!
MY SOPHOMORE YEAR OF RULES is a YA romance with the perfect combination of flirty fun and teen angst. I highly recommend it if you love YA. Here's the blurb:
Colette Rodriguez hates rules. Just ask her perfect, older, gorgeous, rule-following sister, Jana.
But now that Jana's away at college and Colette's a sophomore in high school, things are going to change. She's gotta find a way to get out from under her sister's shadow.
The problem is, everyone, including the boys, remembers perfectly-hot-Jana and they constantly compare Colette to her.
With Jana finally out of the house, Colette decides that sophomore year is the best time to make her mark on the world. She vows to follow the rules, although rule-following has never been her strong point. When a teacher asks Colette to lead a STEM Mentoring project, working with middle school kids, Colette sees her chance to stand out, though she doubts her ability to take charge.
Enter Will Gamen, junior football star. Looking for a club to boost his chances of a college scholarship, Will signs up for STEM. From the first meeting, when Will inadvertently takes over, Colette wonders if he should really be the person to run the project. And, in an even more confusing turn of events, Will starts to drop by her house for unplanned study dates. After the two spend one fabulous Saturday night together, he suddenly backs off.
But Colette and Will started out as friends and she's determined not to let one meaningless kiss come between them. Plus, keeping Will on her team is the best thing for the STEM project. And it also gives her more time to convince him that they work better as a couple.
You can read reviews of it on Goodreads and find it on Amazon.
In other news, I’m currently working on a new book and preparing for the release of AMANDA VS. THE UNIVERSE on Sept. 26. I’d love to know what you’ve been reading!
