Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers

I don’t know much about this one but I read Cracked Up To Be a few years ago and loved the way she tackled such a difficult subject. I can only hope this one is as good.

Climbing to the top of the social ladder is hard—falling from it is even harder.  Regina Afton used to be a member of the Fearsome Fivesome, an all-girl clique both feared and revered by the students at Hallowell High… until vicious rumors about her—and her best friend’s boyfriend—start going around.  Now Regina’s been frozen out, and her ex-best friends are out for revenge.  If Regina were guilty, it would be one thing, but the rumors are far from the terrifying truth, and the bullying is getting more intense by the day.  She takes solace in the company of Michael Hayden, a misfit with a tragic past whom she herself used to bully.  Friendship doesn’t come easily for these onetime enemies, and as Regina works hard to make amends for her past, she realizes Michael could be more than just a friend…if threats from the Fearsome Foursome don’t break them both first.

Tensions grow and the abuse worsens, as the final days of senior year march toward an explosive conclusion in this dark new tale from the author of Cracked Up To Be.

We’re going to be a week behind each Musing Monday as we sadly can’t post on the day anymore but we’re loving the random questions and we will try and get round everyone’s posts when we can!

LAST WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Are there any books you are really eagerly waiting for in 2017?

Are you kidding? Of course there are! This year there are three amazing series that I’ve been keeping up to date with that come to (what I hope will be) an epic finale and I can not wait to get my hands on them!

First up…

A Conjuring of Light by V E Schwab

A Conjuring of Light

A Darker Shade final for Irene A Gathering of Shadows Final

This is the conclusion to Shades of Magic. This series is easily one of my favourite series of all time. I got so absorbed in both previous books that I demolished them in 2 days, and these aren’t small books people… oh no, these are chunky books. I can not wait to find out how it will end!

The Scarecrow Queen by Melinda Salisbury

I finally got round to book 2 last month and oh how I loved it. I actually loved it more than book one. I also loved all the characters and even if you don’t like the stories you have to admit these covers are just so beautiful.

and finally, I’m waiting for…

The Savage Dawn by Melissa Grey

This series had humour, action, wonderful character dynamics and real imagination. Its a great debut series and I hope more people give it a go because I think its worth it.
