In no particular order, some of the best books we've read so far this year:



Ignite Me - Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me Series) - LOVED these books! It was amazing getting to see the tremendous growth of a character throughout the series. I couldn't have asked for a better ending! Carmen

Best Kind of Broken by Chelsea Fine - seriously one of the best new adult books I've ever read, and it's really not too mature, so if you can handle a few mature scenes, I highly suggest you read it! - Amber

The Thrill of It - Lauren Blakely






White Hot Kiss - Jennifer L. Armentrout - This book kept me on my toes; it has lots of action! Oh, and I'm head over heels in love with one of the male leads: Roth! - Carmen White Hot Kiss gave me my second favorite book boyfriend of all time. Roth is simply someone that I constantly dream about -- he's sexy, smart, sarcastic, playful, and protective. This story alone will pull you in (because JLA is simply fantastic) but Roth will make you never want to leave the world of White Hot Kiss. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book! - Christina

The Sky Is Everywhere - Jandy Nelson - a young adult title that is going to be really hard to knock off from the top spot. If you like John Green, Rainbow Rowell, and books that mean something, pick up this book ASAP. - Amber ...This book was everything. Never have I been so compelled to really enjoy and live life as after reading this book.Ursula

The 5th Wave -Rick Yancey 






The Winner's Curse - Marie Rutkoski - Beautifully written takes you into a time of slavery and injustice. Arin and Kestrel are one of the best forbidden love stories I've read in a long time. -Ursula
Obsidian - Jennifer L Armentrout



All Lined Up - Cora Carmack - I've been lucky enough to be selected to be part of a very elite group of bloggers and marketing professionals, to be part of the Cora Carmack Rusk University Street team, so I've already read this book that releases this May - I can't wait for you guys to get your hands on it, you're going to love this series! - Amber
{Excerpt}{Preview}

Untold - Sarah Rees Brennan



Faking Normal - Courtney C. Stevens - Faking Normal perfectly depicts the inner workings of a young girl who is struggling with a painful secret. I kep finding myself empathizing with her, as well as getting highly frustrated. Which, I'm sure is what the author intended. This book gave me all of the feels, from anger to sadness to fear to happiness. I simply LOVED it. -Christina

Losing It - Cora Carmack - I read this is one sitting! After finishing a chapter, you just wanted to jump right into the next one. Not to mention there's this really sexy, smart,British guy named Garrick.. SWOON! - Carmen
{Review} {Character Spotlight: Garrick}

Magnolia - Kristi Cook, Coming This Summer
