Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I already bought Unravel Me, but I’m also really looking forward to Out of the Easy and Pivot Point! Both sound interesting, and I’ve heard good things about both so that’s also really nice!

Cassie - My oh my. SO MANY BOOKS. I read Unravel Me and adored it. I can’t speak highly enough about Tahereh Mafi’s writing. I can’t wait for The Ruining, Out of the Easy, The Reece Malcom List and How to Lead a Life of Crime!

Rachel - Oh man, so many good books out this month! I’m excited for the rest of the world to read Unravel Me, as I finished that one recently. I’m looking forward to Pivot Point, The Ruining, and Hysteria.

Alexa Y. - There are SO many good books out this month, but I’m particularly looking forward to Unravel Me and Scarlet! I need to do a re-read of Scarlet once I get my own copy…

Jen - Well, we already discussed Unravel Me at length, so you already know my thoughts on that one 🙂 Can’t wait for the finished copy so I can do a thorough and heart-pounding re-read!

Magan - I would say, Mands, that if you didn’t love Wither, then you might not connect with Fever. The issues went deeper and got even more twisted than in Wither.

Magan - Thanks, Lena! Thanks for the book hook-up. 🙂 And yes, definitely terrifying.

Lena - Great review, Magan! I’m so glad you enjoyed it more than the first one. There might not be nuclear weapons and war, but DeStefano’s world sure is terrifying! 🙂

VeganYANerds - I liked your description of how the story felt, BAM!

I really don’t know if I want to bother with Fever, I didn’t like Wither even after being told how awesome it was, I don’t think I’ll be rushing out to get it, I’ll wait until the library gets a copy. But you do have me interested because you said it’s better than Wither, which is rare in a series of 3 books.
