My rating in words: I really liked it!

What it’s about:

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is.

Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him.

Right?

Hi guys and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Seeing as spring is almost here (and boy, am I ready for spring to begin!), today’s all about the books that I’m planning to read this spring.

I divided this list in two parts:

  1. New spring releases, because is it just me or is this spring filled with amazing new book releases?
  2. Books from my backlist, because I’m still trying to tackle that monster of a TBR so while I’m being bombarded with new releases I also still want to catch up with some older books.

Will I succesfully be able to read all these books in the upcoming springtime? Who knows, but I’m already super excited to get to each and every one of them so I’ll definitely be trying!
