Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
I was SO excited to purchase this book off of Book Outlet recently. Speak has been one of my favorite books of all time since about 7th grade. I read it in middle school as an assigned choice book (meaning we were given, like, 6 books and had to pick one) so I never actually owned it. And, now I do! I couldn't be more excited.
The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney
For some reason, this book jumps out at me every time I'm at Barnes & Noble (I think it's this newer cover.) I never purchased it for whatever reason, but when I saw it majorly discounted on Book Outlet I jumped at the chance and bought it. I'm pretty excited to read this one despite the fact that it's shockingly short (and the font is HUGE.)
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
I've heard a surprising amount of good things about this book lately. I put it on my Spring TBR Top Ten Tuesday and almost half of the comments said that they loved this book. I feel like it's super adored, but for some reason not many people talk about it a lot? Regardless, I'm excited to have this and read it soon especially since I'm usually hesitant to pick up historical fiction.
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Do I even need to say anything about this? This is the third book in The Lunar Chronicles series, AKA the best series ever, and I'm SO EXCITED TO READ THIS. It's the book after next in my list of TBR's so I should be busting it out within the next week or so. I can't wait to find out how things pan out.
You may or may not know that I love anything having to do with mythology (I am dying to read the Percy Jackson books) so when I heard about this series it totally sparked my interest. To be completely honest, I don't know a whole bunch about these books other than that they are absolutely gorgeous. I'm obsessed with these covers and I cannot wait to read these.
Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin
Ariel Bissett on YouTube has raved about this book quite a bit in the past. I saw it on Book Outlet and thought why not pick it up considering I really, really trust Ariel's opinions. Hopefully this book won't disappoint once I finally get the chance to pick it up.
Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
Just like Speak, Stargirl was a favorite of mine when I was younger. I remember reading this book in 4th grade? Maybe, 5th? And, it was honestly my favorite book for SUCH a long time. If I were a BookTuber and did the Top Ten Influential Books Tag, this and Speak would for sure both be on it. These are books that changed my life in so many ways. However, I didn't own this one either! They had it on Book Outlet in HARDCOVER! (Which I didn't even know existed for some reason. I don't know what I thought, but I have never ever seen the hardback version of Stargirl. But, now I own it and it's gorgeous and perfect.) I can't wait to revisit this old favorite.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente
I believe I first heard about this middle grade book from Jillian from BookishandNerdy on YouTube. She talked about this one and said she really enjoyed it. I don't know why but it was really calling to me. Do books call to you? Because they call to me. And, I didn't hang up (see what I did there?) I purchased it online and I am beyond excited to now have it on my bookshelf.
Unremembered by Jessica Brody
I know that the sequel to this, Unforgotten, was recently released. There was a ton of buzz about that and a lot of people were really excited. Since I had never even read the first one, I decided to jump on that bandwagon and pick it up! I really like these covers as well. The blurriness is totally alluring to me. Is that weird?
Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Lastly, I purchased this book. This is the first book in another series that I've heard a lot of people talk about. Again, I don't know much about this book either, but I know a lot of people really like this series and from what I've heard about this I feel like I would as well. That being said, I'm excited to venture into this series and see what it's all about!
