Goodreads Summary:
Kellan McVey is Burnham College’s most prolific athlete, partier, and ladies’ man—and that’s just how he likes it. Returning to reign for his third year, he wants nothing to change. Then Andrea Walsh shows up.

It wasn’t too long ago that Andi and Kellan were lifelong friends, mortal enemies, and, for one hot summer, more. Then Kellan left and Andi stayed behind.

Kellan thought he’d moved past that last summer’s heartbreak, but with Andi sitting next to him in class, befriending his friends, and battling for the same once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity, he’s starting to remember why he hated her…and why he loved her.

Kellan has a long list of reasons that falling for Andi again is a terrible idea, though every new moment together challenges that theory. But Andi’s all too familiar with Kellan’s love ’em and leave ’em approach—and she’s found someone else to get serious about.

Burnham’s campus king has never had to fight for a girl, but if he wants Andi to give him another chance, he’ll have to do the one thing he’s never had the nerve to do: admit it.

Goodreads Summary:
As bubbly as champagne and delectable as wedding cake, Once and for All, Sarah Dessen's thirteenth novel, is set in the world of wedding planning, where crises are routine.

Louna, daughter of famed wedding planner Natalie Barrett, has seen every sort of wedding: on the beach, at historic mansions, in fancy hotels and clubs. Perhaps that's why she's cynical about happily-ever-after endings, especially since her own first love ended tragically. When Louna meets charming, happy-go-lucky serial dater Ambrose, she holds him at arm's length. But Ambrose isn't about to be discouraged, now that he's met the one girl he really wants.

Sarah Dessen’s many, many fans will adore her latest, a richly satisfying, enormously entertaining story that has everything—humor, romance, and an ending both happy and imperfect, just like life itself.

Sarah Dessen is a must and that synopsis sounds so swoon-worthy~

What are you guys waiting on this week?

Goodreads Summary:
Let go from her job and feeling lost, Navy Carrington takes a position as coffee-girl at a publicity firm. Their newest client is Carrick Kennely, the former love of her life and her fiercest adversary. She thought she'd let go of the past by playing it safe with book boyfriends—and avoiding frustratingly sexy guys like Carrick.

When Navy's roommate finds the Boyfriend Book, a silly relic leftover from Navy's teens, it prompts a dare; Navy is to go on five dates and pick one to be her Valentine. Despite her reservations, she can't say no, especially if it means proving to herself and Carrick that she can move on.

Navy chronicles her brief romantic entanglements with the Hottie in 7G, the Man-Bun-Barista, the Gym Stud, and the Book Boyfriend who turns out to be a toad—not the kind that when kissed turns into a prince—, on The Boyfriend Book Blog. She doesn't want to let her readers or herself down, but as Valentine's Day nears, none of the guys comes close to being her one true love.

Except Carrick. He’s infuriating, attractive, confusing, catnip…and it turns out he has a secret.

With a love letter and a plane ticket in hand, Navy leaves her baggage behind and must decide between love, hate, and the lies she told to protect her fragile heart.

Told with humor and heart, Love, Hate, and Other Lies We Told may appeal to readers who enjoy Alice Clayton, Sally Thorne, and Emily Giffin's work.

2017 Love-a-Thon - Mini-challenge #8: On the Road (Trip)!

2017 Love-a-thon banner
Pick 3-4 bookish people you'd take on a road trip- describe the trip and your destination!
This is such a fun idea! I am going to pick all book characters for this one because it's not everyday (more like never) that I'd get to see my favourite fictional characters let alone go on a trip with them so I'm going to dream a little ;)
Lila from V.E. Schwab's Shades of Magic series was the first person to come to my mind when I saw road trip. She'd be such fun company. I have a feeling I'll probably be nonstop laughing at her snark. We will be joined by Will Herondale from Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices! Another character that will bring lots of sarcasm and laughs to our group. Ismae from Robin LaFevers's His Fair Assassin series will be the level-headed person in the car. She's resourceful and calm and will get us out of any unfavourable situation that we just might find ourselves in (Lila and Will are bound to do something silly and get us in trouble right?). Last person in the car will be Cath from Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl. She's a girl after my own heart so we'll be shyly fangirl-ing and gawking at the other characters. We made an amusing bunch haha...
A Gathering of Shadows  Clockwork Angel  Grave Mercy  Fangirl
And our destination is: Universal Studios Orlando! More specifically we'd be going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Before we left, we'd all have gotten sorted into our Houses so once we've arrived, we'd all change into our House robes. Then we'd wander around the theme park drinking frozen butterbeer and eating chocolate frogs~ I imagine Cath would be longing for Simon and Baz but that's okay because I'd pull her back in and we'd have an amazing time seeing the looks on Lila, Will and Ismae's faces~ The magic of Harry Potter for all! *wink* :D
Also, I'd never want this trip to end lol...
