It has been awhile folks! I miss blogging and doing bookish stuff. Life has been very busy and things were happening at the same time. Of course, priorities–we need to work on those first. I’m kind of pressured by the expectations but yeah, just gotta deal with it. I’m going to try to put back my consistent habit of posting in the bookish community. I’ve been inactive for months and had been saying almost the same thing every time I post. I’m not promising anything though. I hope you’re all still there. xoxo
General updates aside, these are the new ARCS I received this month. ((Not the best number for hauls but hey, I’m so left behind in my TBR list. I can’t afford to acquire more books.))

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Award-winning author Hadley Dyer’s YA debut is a smart, humorous, and emotionally gripping story about a girl who finds love only to lose it … and more.Feisty and fearless, George Warren (given name: Frances, but no one calls her that) never lets life get too serious. Now that she’s about to be a senior, her plans include partying with her tight-knit group of friends and then getting the heck out of town after graduation.
But instead of owning her last year of high school, a fight with her best friend puts her on the outs of their social circle. If that weren’t bad enough, George’s family has been facing hard times since her father, a police sergeant, got injured and might not be able to return to work, putting George’s college plans in jeopardy.
So when George meets Francis, an older guy who shares her name and her affinity for sarcastic banter, she’s thrown. If she lets herself, she’ll fall recklessly, hopelessly in love. But because of Francis’s age, she tells no one—and ends up losing almost everything, including herself, all on her own. This is a gorgeous, atmospheric, and gut-wrenching novel that readers won’t soon forget.
