Books Out This Week 8/6

These are the new books I'm obsessing over this week:

By: Kristen-Paige Madonia
The main character's name is Lemon, which I actually think is pretty!  It reminds me of Strawberry Shortcake or something.  But anyway it's about a girl who lives with a messed-up single mom, ends up pregnant, and goes on a road trip to find her father and figure out her life.  I LOVE the cover and I think it sounds pretty good!

By: Flynn Meaney
Another cute cover!!  This one is about a high school who's boy population is in serious decline.  I've heard a lot about this one, some good some bad.  It sounds like it could be a nice light read, and I need those every once in a while :)

By: Crissa-Jean Chappell
A stoner who is forced to turn narc.  I actually knew someone in college who turned out to be a narc.  I knew quite a few people who wanted to get their hands on him after it all came out!  So I can kind of see where this book is going!!

By: Rebecca Harrington
An awkward girl goes to Harvard and has to learn to socialize.  Super cute cover!  I definitely want to read this one, even though I don't think Harvard is exactly the capital of socialization!

By: Marisa Calin
Female student with a crush on a female teacher (and a best friend whose gender is not revealed to help her figure it all out).  Another pretty cover, but it's too much like:

By: Elizabeth Flock
A 9-year-old who is trying to cope with the loss of a sister, moves to a new town and makes friends with a girl and falls in love with her family.  But both families apparently have secrets.  I loved Me & Emma which this is the sequel to (even though it doesn't say it's a sequel for some reason??).

Other books out this week:
Carter's Unfocused One-Track Mind By: Brent Crawford (3rd book in the Carter Finally Gets It series)
Glitch By: Heather Anastasiu- Yes a dystopian series made my list... but it sounds pretty cool!
Capital Girls By: Ella Monroe- New series about teens who's parents are power players in D.C.
Burn By: Heath Gibson- Volunteer firefighter who gets a little too high on the hero worship.

Wow this week is packed!!  Plus there are a TON of paranormal/zombie/vampire/apocalypse books that I didn't even touch on.  So what are you going to read??
