Waiting on Wednesday #2 – Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases you’re dying for!



Lara Jean’s letter-writing days aren’t over in this surprise follow-up to the New York Times bestselling To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You.

Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?

I read and loved To All The Boys I Loved Before back when i first came out.

And I only recently got my hands on PS I Still Love You, but haven’t gotten to it yet.

I am still psyched for this – YA contemporaries with more than one book are rare and this series is SO GOOD.

Waiting on Wednesday #1 – Last Semester


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases you’re dying for!



When Johanna ‘Jo’ Gold, witty college life blogger and senior at Rutan University, decides to move in with three male strangers her last semester of school, her life unexpectedly turns upside down. While dealing with her new roommates, A.J., the pompous rich kid who feels trapped in following his father’s footsteps; Rob, the prematurely engaged former womanizer who tries to force Jo out of the house at all costs; and Drew, the 21-year-old virgin genius whose encounters with women have been more than limited, Jo learns that change isn’t always easy and it’s up to her to learn how to survive the remainder of her time at Rutan the best that she can. Along with searching for her missing mother, figuring out a clever way to pay for school tuition on her own, and dealing with the childish pranks brought on by a certain roommate, Jo’s issues seem more complicated than the average 21-year-old. Can Jo endure the dramatic perils of college while planning for life after graduation?

Paperback, 360 pages
Expected publication: April 21st 2017 by Corine Mekaouche

Okay. So, generally, I am not the biggest fan of New Adult novels – I prefer sticking to YA, and generally romance NA is immediately in my “not that into it” mental list when I hear someone raving.
But I’m hosting a book blitz for this book on release day (2 days from now!) and I’m getting serious New Girl vibes – and since I love it, I kind of want to read this.
Also, as someone anxious about college, I kind of want to read more college set novels.

Today I Needed To Rant – Some Updates And Arcs

Today I am having a little birthday party – friends are coming over to watch movies and eat food. So I’m quite excited and feeling justified in procrastinating homework.

I just wanted to give a sort of general little life update. And blog update.

Life wise, school is killing me (16 grade spanish project with a teacher who is so picky she barely gives As…kill me now, my mother has already threatened to baker act me if I panic any more). But is otherwise fine. My actual birthday was terrible, but time is calming me down.

Most of my friends bought me books for my birthday, so later today you’ll get a book haul.

And I finally logged in to my blogging email on my new computer so if you have a review request, or just want to chat, my blogging/business email is : rivermoosevlogs@gmail.com

I’ve received a BUNCH of arcs recently, which I’m psyched about!

I just received Unfathomable Chance by KT Munson from the author herself, Blogging For Books is sending me Alexander Hamilton’s Guide To Life, and I have six arcs from Netgalley: Patient HM, Climate Change and the Health of Nations, Traveler’s Guide To Space, Fabrication of the Truth, Piper Perish, and Butterfly Bones.

I also requested my first two arcs from publishers, so here’s hoping I get them. I requested Last of August by Brittany Cavallero and Nowhere Near You by Leah Thomas.

I discovered the existence of Nowhere Near You yesterday and immediately requested an arc I was so excited. The first book, Because You’ll Never Meet Me, is one of my favorite books of all time and I thought it was a standalone. I’m so happy its not. So I’m hoping with all my heart my request is approved.


That’s really all I wanted to say I think. I completely lost my train of thought!

I’ll post a book haul either later tonight or tomorrow, depending on how late it is when the party ends…
