A highly acclaimed and anticipated debut with a beautiful cover!! It's a take on Alice in Wonderland in which a girl (whose ancestor is the original Alice from the book) thinks she may be mentally ill like her mother. But then she finds out that the story of Alice in Wonderland is in fact true and now she's finding out that Wonderland is a little different than what was written. From what everyone's been saying, it sounds great!

Justina is a girl who never wanted to go to prom... until her best friend Ian asked her. But when he ditches her on prom day, she has to figure out how this happened. I love stories like this!! I love books about popularity, mean girls, and prom... no clue why, I'm just weird.

It's about a girl named Dell who's overweight and going through a lot of emotional stuff... alone. I like the idea of it, but I've not heard impressive things, so we'll see.

I'm not gonna lie, the name of this book gives me the creeps! It's about a boy whose family moves to an island in an attempt to save his sickly brother. At first he's depressed and lonely, but then he meets Diana and Teeth. But Teeth has secrets and well with a name like Teeth why not? PS- Invincible Summer was awful so I'm more than a little concerned about this book.

It's about a girl with an abusive stepfather who becomes involved with a possessive boyfriend. Then she lands in the ICU somewhere between life and death, and somehow she needs to fight for the love that she wants and needs. I like it!

A New Adult book, which I'm loving this genre right now!! He saw her first, but his friend made the move. She settled for the safer choice, but her heart knew the truth. They love, they crave, they lie. Love that blurb!

Jade moves into a new town and quickly realizes her house is haunted. Haunted by a ghost of a girl who used to be the queen bee of her new high school, and she wants answers and maybe even revenge? Sounds like a cool murder/mystery/paranormal. I love it!
By: Sara Shepard
A Prequel to the Pretty Little Liars books. It's told from Alison's POV in the weeks leading up to her murder. Damn Ms. Shepard, I can't keep up!

A Sci-Fi, Dystopian about a girl who falls for a genetically altered boy who is in her father's lab. When they come to take him away, the pair ends up on the run together. It sounds interesting and the guy on the cover is definitely reason enough for me :)
By: Deb Caletti
