  1. Nice mix! I know I'll be adding a few of these to my wish list. I admit, I've been hearing a lot of buzz about the Juliet book... Very curious. Thanks for the share and happy reading!

    1. I haven't heard anything about the Juliet book and didn't even know it was related to Love and Other Unknown Variables until now. Good to know it's getting buzz :)

  2. I liked Defending Taylor. It was cute. I do want to read The Memory Book and The Lost & Found as well. Thanks for sharing!

  3. The Memory Book looks so
    Good and I keep seeing such great reviews for it!
