My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares

Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. Daniel has “the memory”, the ability to recall past lives and recognize souls of those he’s previously known. It is a gift and a curse. For all the times that he and Sophia have been drawn together throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart. A love always too short.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I was born in the 80s. Early 80s. (Yeah, I’m old…*sob*) So, 80s and 90s trivia about video games and music and all that good stuff makes my heart go pitter-pat. It also amuses me to remember the stuff from back then. That, of course, helped me fall in love with this book; it is FULL of references to 80s and 90s pop culture and lifestyle.

Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand

This was my first time reading any of Hilderbrand’s books and I must say I will be reading others. I absolutely devoured this book, reading it in less than a week (keeping in mind I work full time and go to school part-time!). I found the book and the characters in it captivating.

Thirst No. 5 by Christopher Pike – Cover Reveal
