Alexa S. - Whenever you come out and write a book review like this one, I almost always instantly want to buy it. (I’m only resisting now because of a lack of funds at the moment!) But seriously, Signed Skye Harper sounds really great! I love that there’s a road trip, and a huge family aspect, and just a great story that captures that awkward age (that was definitely mine too)!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Books like this one are right up my alley. Plus, it sounds amazing. I tend to love stories that deal with families and heartbreak, and this one has that element to it (or so it seems from your review!)

Magan - Thanks, Katie! I plan to sit here and read as much as I can today. I NEED this whole day to just dive into these author’s worlds. I hope I finish my current read (Timepiece) so I can dive into one of the three you listed. I don’t know how I’ll decide which to read next. 🙂

Katie @ BlookGirl - Revived is definitely on my TBR List! Can’t wait to hear what you think of it 🙂 I saw Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour at Barnes & Noble yesterday and thought it sounded really fun! This Lullaby is one of my favorite Sarah Dessen novels. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

Lori - I’ve read two books by Carol Lynch Williams and really enjoyed them. Now I’m even more anxious to read this one. I love emotional stories and verse novels so this sounds perfect for me! Fantastic review.

elena - I’m not really the biggest fan of verse novels but you’ve convinced me with the comparison to The Sky Is Everywhere! LOVE that book and if this book is anything like it, it will be amazing. 😀

VeganYANerds - Fantastic review, Mags! Being written in verse about something emotional definitely doesn’t put me off this book, in fact I want to read it even more! It went on my to-read list when you recommended it to me on twitter but now I can really understand why you suggested it.

Aneeqah - I’ve been kind of back and forth about whether I should read this book. I think I’ll at least add it to my TBR, so I can get around it sometime. Sometimes, a deep emotional read is perfect on occasion. I’m not usually a huge fan of these types of books though, but I think that I’ll like this one, even though it seems like there’s a love triangle in this book [which I am definitely NOT a fan of]. Fabulous review, Magan! =)

Eva, The Book Stoner - The free verse thing didn’t work for me. It was also too dramatic for my taste, but I’m glad you like it. I don’t know why but I just really like reading good reviews of those books I didn’t like or finish. Weird. 🙂

May 2012 Young Adult Book Releases

Janet - I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all the work you guys do to get these books out here and reviewed. I don’t know what I would do without you guys. This site is bookmarked and I look at it all the time for the next book to read. Thanks for everything!

Magan - I’m so sad you didn’t connect with When You Were Mine, ComaCalm. 🙁 I ended up enjoying it very much! And YES – so, so excited about From What I Remember!

May 9, 2012 - 6:29 am

Princess Alethea - Hooray! I’m honored to make the list! 🙂

May 7, 2012 - 4:43 pm

ComaCalm - I really want to get a copy of From What I Remember! I tried reading When You Were Mine but it didn’t agree with me. 🙁

VeganYANerds - So I was going to start saying which books I’d like to read and then I realised I would be listing almost all the books you’ve listed, ha! May is going to be SO, SO, SO GOOD! I need more hours in the day so I can read more!

May 5, 2012 - 8:26 am
