  3. I'm excited for Ramona Blue. I loved Dumplin'

    For What It's Worth

    1. #sorrynotsorry May is a really crazy month! Hoping the summer slows down a bit.

  5. I read 6 of those, and like them all. Dear Reader recently hit my radar, and I hope to read it.

  6. Brave New Girl is one I'm definitely interested in, I like books about cloning and stuff like that.

  7. I read The Lines We Cross last year, when it was released as When Michael Met Mina! A pretty good read with an important message.

    Looking forward to Ramona Blue. And the cover for the Francis Hardinge book is creeping me out!

  8. I'm super excited to read Dear Reader! Thanks for the chance
