October Book Haul PART 2

Back again so soon? Haha! Honestly I am going to stay away from a bookstore until the end of December if I can try! Clearly I have way too much fun going in and end up with an empty wallet! So here is my second part to my October Haul, literally shopping until the very last day possible!

October Book Haul PART 1

Welcome Back Bookworms!! Every time I come back to do a book haul, I feel like I'm just hoarding books at this point, as I seem to never have enough time to actually read them all!! I've decided to split this month as well into two parts. I don't think you really want to be sitting around reading oh about 30 books...So with that being said, we should probably get on with that!

All Christiana wanted was a little flirty fun.
What she got was a one-way ticket to her own personal nightmare.

Her friend is dead…and she knows who did it. Now a key witness in a murder trial, she’s been hidden away in the one place no one will think to look for her: Eton Preparatory School for Boys.

It’s a stupid move. Insane. But she doesn’t have a choice.
Instead of completing her senior year with the popular crowd, she’s being forced to hide in a school with exactly zero XX chromosomes. Even worse, she’s somehow supposed to act like the Neanderthals walking the halls.

But then she meets the guys next door—the smoking-hot ones. And it doesn’t help that one in particular could unravel her in a heartbeat… and potentially blow her cover. How’s she supposed to resist Trey Calloway, the star hockey player who never backs down from a fight…and who never takes no for an answer?

She’s supposed to be focused on staying safe, not on the guy who’s getting under her skin. Her chilling past isn’t going to suddenly disappear.
In fact, it might just be catching up with her.

Turn on any news station and you will see a glimpse of some of the challenges out world is facing: hunger, poverty, disease, war and environmental changes, just to name a few. Young people, both boys and girls, have the power t fix these problems in our world. But girls today have problems of their own. Our image-obsessed society tells girls that they are not skinny enough, pretty enough, or talented enough to change the world. It's no wonder girls are struggling with their self-esteem and self-worth. It's time to make a shift.

What the world needs more than ever are changemakers-young people who are committed to making the world a better place. We need girls who are less worries about thigh gaps and more worried about the difference they are making in the lives of others. GIRL TALK speaks to girls growing up in a society filled with pressures and encourages them to see that they have the power to make the world a better place each and every day, right where they are.

A great resource for educators and parents.

Beatrice Maria Estrella Giovannini has life all figured out. She's starting senior year at the top of her class, she’s a shoo-in for a scholarship to M.I.T., and she’s got a new boyfriend she’s crazy about. The only problem: All through high school Bea and her best friends Spencer and Gabe have been the targets of horrific bullying.

So Bea uses her math skills to come up with The Formula, a 100% mathematically-guaranteed path to social happiness in high school. Now Gabe is on his way to becoming Student Body President, and Spencer is finally getting his art noticed. But when her boyfriend dumps her for Toile, the quirky new girl at school, Bea realizes it's time to use The Formula for herself. She'll be reinvented as the eccentric and lovable Trixie—a quintessential manic pixie dream girl—in order to win her boyfriend back and beat new-girl Toile at her own game.

Unfortunately, being a manic pixie dream girl isn't all it's cracked up to be, and “Trixie” is causing unexpected consequences for her friends. As The Formula begins to break down, can Bea find a way to reclaim her true identity, and fix everything she's messed up? Or will the casualties of her manic pixie experiment go far deeper than she could possibly imagine?

*An enemies to lovers romance*

Travis King is the worst kind of asshole.

He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards. 
He’s cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes. 
And I hate him.

It wouldn’t matter so much if he were avoidable. 

But considering he’s my older brother’s best friend and roommate, I see him more than I’d ever want to.

His sculpted abs and gorgeous eyes are a waste on such an egotistical man, which makes me hate him even more.

Even though I’ve had a crush on him since I was ten, the feelings weren’t mutual and he’s always made that very clear.

He’s always loved getting under my skin and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed. 

I’ve succumbed to his manwhore ways, but that doesn’t change a thing.

Because the King is about to get played at his own game—and lose.

Holding Up the Universe By: Jennifer Niven

Holding Up the Universe
Author: Jennifer Niven
Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Published: October 2016
Format: Paperback ARC
Pages: 400
Rating: 4.5/5
From the author of the New York Times bestseller All the Bright Places comes a heart-wrenching story about what it means to see someone—and love someone—for who they truly are.

Everyone thinks they know Libby Strout, the girl once dubbed “America’s Fattest Teen.” But no one’s taken the time to look past her weight to get to know who she really is. Following her mom’s death, she’s been picking up the pieces in the privacy of her home, dealing with her heartbroken father and her own grief. Now, Libby’s ready: for high school, for new friends, for love, and for EVERY POSSIBILITY LIFE HAS TO OFFER. In that moment, I know the part I want to play here at MVB High. I want to be the girl who can do anything.  

Everyone thinks they know Jack Masselin, too. Yes, he’s got swagger, but he’s also mastered the impossible art of giving people what they want, of fitting in. What no one knows is that Jack has a newly acquired secret: he can’t recognize faces. Even his own brothers are strangers to him. He’s the guy who can re-engineer and rebuild anything in new and bad-ass ways, but he can’t understand what’s going on with the inner workings of his brain. So he tells himself to play it cool: Be charming. Be hilarious. Don’t get too close to anyone. 

Until he meets Libby. When the two get tangled up in a cruel high school game—which lands them in group counseling and community service—Libby and Jack are both pissed, and then surprised. Because the more time they spend together, the less alone they feel. . . . Because sometimes when you meet someone, it changes the world, theirs and yours.

Jennifer Niven delivers another poignant, exhilarating love story about finding that person who sees you for who you are—and seeing them right back.
