Synopsis: Gemma can’t believe her luck when the star football player starts flirting with her. Max is totally swoon-worthy, and even gets her quirky sense of humor. So when he asks out her so-called best friend Addison, Gemma’s heartbroken.

Then Addison pressures Gemma to join the date with one of Max’s friends. But the more time they all spend together, the harder Gemma falls for Max. She can’t help thinking that Max likes her back—it’s just too bad he’s already dating Addison. How can Gemma get the guy she wants without going after her best friend’s boyfriend?

Synopsis: Lydia Bentley has heard stories about the Montauk Project all her life: stories about the experiments that took place at the abandoned military base near her home and the people who’ve disappeared over the years. When she stumbles into a vessel that transports her to a dangerous and strange new reality, Lydia realizes that all the stories she’s ever heard about the Montauk Project are true—and that she’s in the middle of one of the most dangerous experiments in history.

Alongside Wes, a darkly mysterious boy whom she is wary to trust, Lydia begins to unravel the secrets surrounding the project. But the truths behind these secrets force her to question all her choices. And if Lydia chooses wrong, she might not save her family but destroy them...and herself.


1) The One That I Want - I absolutely love Jennifer Echols books. Going Too Far is probably a favorite book of mine. I'm super excited for The One That I want and I can't wait to get my hands on it next week!! :)

2) So Close To You - Sounds intense and intriguing... plus it's from HARPER... can't go wrong there ;).


  1. I love the cover of So Close to You! Particularly because it shows a soon to be twister in the clouds!

  2. I SO want So Close To You! And I want it much sooner than July *whines* I love the cover and I'm so intrigued by this Montauk Project and the idea of travelling through different realities! SO COOL.

    Shameful, shameful, SHAMEFUL me hasn't read a Jennifer Echols book yet! :( BUT I WANT TO. And this one sounds sooo good!

  3. You're the second person to feature SO CLOSE TO YOU today. It sounds really good!!

  4. Both are great picks girl. Esp the second one. Never heard of it totally adding it to my tbr right now!

  5. I love Jen Echols and am always crazy about whatever new book she has coming out. I wonder if this take on the whole fall-for-your-bff's-boyfriend will more tasteful, will actually work.

    Is Rachel Carter a debut author? So Close to You sounds... dystopian...? All I know is I want to read it!
