The Homecoming by Stacie Ramey

Standalone. Sourcebooks Fire (Nov. 1, 2016) NetGalley
Forced to return to his estranged family, John discovers how hard it is to truly go home.

It's been a year since John lost his girlfriend, Leah, to suicide. Living with his uncle keeps his mind from the tragedy and his screwed up family-until he gets into trouble and a judge sends him back home. With a neglectful mother and abusive brother, John's homecoming is far from happy.

As he tries to navigate and repair the relationships he abandoned years ago, Emily, the girl next door, is the only bright spot. She's sweet and smart and makes him think his heart may finally be healing. But tragedy isn't far away, and John must soon face an impossible decision: save his family or save himself.

John is angry. Angry at the accident that changed his brother. Angry at his mother who kicked him out. Angry at himself for not saving the one he loves. This anger inside of him has led him to make choices even he knows were a mistake. He…

The Form of Things Unknown by Robin Bridges

She’s making friends with girls, girls who like horror movies and Ouija boards, who can hide their liquor in Coke bottles and laugh at the theater’s ghosts. Natalie can keep up. She can adapt. And if she skips her meds once or twice so they don’t interfere with her partying, it won’t be a problem. She just needs to keep her wits about her.
Honest, nuanced, and bittersweet, The Form of Things Unknown explores the shadows that haunt even the truest hearts . . . and the sparks that set them free.

Natalie just wants to be normal, but with her d…

August 2016 Monthly Recap

I haven't been the most consistent blogger this year for some reason. Last semester was very difficult for me but I'm surprised that it took so long to really come back. I do stop from time to time. But I always come back because this is my favorite hobby other than reading. I have not stopped reading though. I have read about 130+ books including rereads. I'm pretty happy that I was still able to enjoy so many wonderful books.
