Frostblood by Elly Blake - Amazon / Goodreads

I had hoped to pick up a copy of this book at BEA but I didn't get a chance because either drops were at the same time as other stuff or I never quite got it in the Little Brown dice roll game. But it sounds fantatsic!

I read my first Mindy McGinnis book (The Female of the Species) recently and loved it. I want to read more of her books and this might be a good place to continue.

Simon Vs. was one of my favorite books of 2015 and my favorite debut so I obviously would be excited for Becky's next book. Plus it's about a plus size teen so obviously I can relate.
The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee - Amazon / Goodreads
Release Date: June 20
I loved Mackenzi's debut This Monstrous Thing and have been waiting for her next books which both sound amazing. I'm not typically a fan of road trips but if they are big gay 18th century European ones I'm on board
