Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…
That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.
Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.
A YA novel which deals primarily on young love coupled with hardships on family and personal identity and finding your true self through witnessing and resolving your troubled past in connection with the present. I am not so much a fan of cheesy love stories but I respected the unique twist and turnout of events in Sky’s past and present. If I were still a teenager, I would have given this 5 stars.

Every Day by David Levithan
Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
Probably one of the most bizarre love stories ever made. Looking into A’s perspective, it’s just so saddening that at the end and at the start of the day, you still get to be yourself but still NOT yourself at the same time. And you get to love someone but end up helpless because of the rough conditions beyond your reach. He knows that he can fix this, but he learned to let go of his love and his chance of being normal just so that the last guy he ended up with won’t be sacrificed at his own expense. A kind and giving act not everyone can deal with.
Clean-up Saturday. Seeing them made me super happy! ❤

2. The Beatles Anthology! Just came in the other day! It instantly became part of my fave list. :)
3. Archiekins! I wouldn’t trade you for anything else. :)
4. Unearthed my Sweet Valley babies. :) they’re like more than 10 years old I guess. I used to starve myself to death way back elementary just to get my hands on these! :)
