Leave Me by Gayle Forman: about a woman who’s so caught up in taking care of other people, she doesn’t realize she’s having a heart attack. I’ve just started, but it’s already well-written and somewhat terrifying.
The Legendary Lord by Valerie Bowman: I’ve been working my way through the books in this series and they’re all delightful. This one is no exception.
Winning by Lara Deloza: This novel follows a high school Queen Bee who’s determined to win the Homecoming crown. It’s one of those “look at these psychopathic popular girls” novels, but it’s a good one. Feels a little bit Mean Girls, but it’s not a comedy. Bonus points for having one of the characters actually try to use the plot of Mean Girls as a playbook for her scheming.
