Bella - I have this one in my library pile, but I was planning to pass over it. Seeing your review and a few others with high praise, I’m thinking otherwise! It sounds so interesting. Great review! 🙂

Erin @ The Hardcover Lover - I found an ARC of this in my mailbox, and was so glad because I loved it. I really hope more people pick it up because it made me think. It was so unique but good and strange at the same time. I’m glad that I’m getting an ARC of the second one in a few months because I need to know what happens next.

Alexa S. - I wasn’t initially thinking of reading Vivian Apple…, but after seeing your review + Rachel’s review, I’m now thinking I should give it a shot! I love that you think the friendship is an integral part of this book, and that this potential love interest feels legit. Going to check this one out from the library soon!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - What a unique story! I’ve never come across a story like this one. I’m so glad you enjoyed this one. I am very curious about this book, although I’m nervous to read it too. It seems very stressful, despite the adorable cover.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I have heard such good things about this and I didn’t realize it was so good! A few great reviews recently made me realize that I was overlooking this one. I really need to bump it up on my list! Thanks!

Erin - I want to read this book, now! I saw it on NetGalley, but I didn’t request because I wasn’t sure if it’d be good or not. I should have, though, the cover alone looks fantastic.

Alexa S. - Honestly, I had so, so much love for Let’s Get Lost! It definitely awakened my wanderlust, and had me raring for a new adventure. But at the same time, it made me think and feel. I definitely fell in love with it!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I know, road trip books are so popular in the YA blogosphere. I’m actually not huge on road trip books. It’s not that I dislike them, but I’m not drawn to them either.

I have this book, though, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed it. I definitely need to make the time to read it soon.

Jen @Fefferbooks - Yayyy, so looking forward to reading this! Love your review. <3

Meg - I’m all about road trip stories in the summer, and this sounds like a good one! Like that the main character — and common link — is rather mysterious, and the story structure sounds very interesting!
