Read This Week

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
I know that there are many out there who are very excited about this book and, let me tell you, it is so worth the wait. I've been a Jenny Han fan for a few years now and she does not disappoint with this one. One of my favorite elements was Lara Jean's Korean heritage. I just read Stealing Buddha's Dinner - a memoir about a Vietnamese girl growing up in Grand Rapids, MI - and To All the Boys I've Loved Before actually paired really well with the themes in Nguyen's memoir.  (Goodreads)

Ask Me by Kimberly Pauley
This one is from Soho Teen, a newer imprint that is seriously amazing; you should definitely take a look at their titles. They may publish less books per year than the bigger, more established imprints, but everything they do is really impressive. This one was, unfortunately, my least favorite from Soho so far, but it was still a pretty good book. My biggest issue was the characters and their motivations. I'll discuss this more in my review later this month. (Goodreads)

Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Morgan Matson's books never fail to pull me from reading slumps. I've been reading so much for class lately that I was getting a bit overwhelmed and burned out. Until I picked up Since You've Been Gone, which I proceeded to read in one sitting with a smile on my face through most of the novel. Now, though I should be doing homework, I just want to read and read and read. Reading Matson's books! I've read and loved them all! (Goodreads)

Tell me what you've been reading in the comments! Have we read any books in common lately? I'm on a romance kick - tell me which books with epic, unforgettable romances I need to put on my reading list for the end of this semester!


  1. I've been a bad reader this week, I was a little bit busy with school work and my job. But, I really look forward to read TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE. I wil definitively buy it soon.

  2. I am so excited to read Since You've Been Gone - so glad you loved it!

  3. If you enjoyed Matson's other books, you'll love Since You've Been Gone!

  4. I definitely recommend buying To All the Boys I've Loved Before! I'll be shocked if you don't love it! Be sure to let me know!! I think you'd love Morgan Matson's books too, Melissa!

    I was super busy with school and work this week too. :( I'm supposed to graduate the first week in May and I have so much to do in every class right now. So overwhelming!

  5. I totally understand how you feel right even if I don't graduate this year, but I will be very happy to finish this semester next week.

    I will definitively let you know when I will read it! (and I'm adding Morgan Matson's books to my "to read list" right now!)

  6. I have an arc of To All the Boys that I've been meaning to read for a while! I've mostly been reading YA Sci-Fi like Salvage, The Paladin Prophecy: Alliance, and I also just started Dreams of Gods & Monsters!!!


Make sure you whisper, I'm hiding!
