Hey everyone! What have you been reading? Tell me, tell me!
I just got back from vacation and want to share what I've been reading!
The first book is one I read on vacation:
This was such a fun, fast paced book! I devoured it on vacation because it hooked me right away and had twists and turns that just kept me reading. The political conspiracy aspect was super compelling and I kept guessing what the heck was going on. It was pitched as Scandal meets Veronica Mars and I definitely think that's actually pretty accurate. It's like if Scandal's Olivia Pope had a little sister who came to live with her!
The next book I read on vacation was Dumplin' by Julie Murphy:
Oh man, Dumplin was SOOOO good. It was funny and heartwarming and badass. Willowdean is one of my favorite characters I've read in a while. I loved that it dealt with being comfortable in your own skin, body positivity, grief, friendships. I totally shipped the romance and YAYY lots of Dolly Parton goodness in it. I cannot say enough good things about this one!!
And the most recent book I just finished yesterday was Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon:
This one had a unique premise when it came to what I've read in contemporary YA and really delivered! The main character has a super rare disease that has her essentially living in a bubble in her house and never being able to go outside because she's allergic to things but they don't know what. And then the boy next door moves in and they see each other from the window and begin communicating. And suddenly the main character, who never even thought she could have any of that, is in love and she's finding it hard to exist as she had. It was equally cute and heartwarming as it is heart-wrenching at times. I can't imagine being cut off from the world but then getting a taste of something different in life and yearning for more but it's not safe for her to have it. I REALLY enjoyed the romance in this one and I don't want to say too much about how it ends up but HIGHLY recommend.
