"A Match Made in Mehendi is a sweet, henna-filled teen novel about high school and matchmaking. Simi has an unfortunate clumsy streak - something her Indian mom likes to point out a little too much. But Simi's unlucky tumble into an expensive vase at a department store catches the eye of a very cute worker."
"Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal, didn't start out with a tailored Wordpress design and instant accomplishment. In fact, her before-Nasty-Gal resume boasted the likes of dumper-diving for Bagels, quitting various obscure jobs, and hitchhiking. She never set out to create a brand; she simply had yet to find a career that interested her and decided to take her love of vintage clothing and turn it into an eBay shop."
"In the long-anticipated last book in the popular Caraval series, the deck of Fates has been released and the game has gotten a whole lot harder.

"Despite what she's telling her classmates, Mia Tang doesn't actually live in a big house with a dog. Her and her parent run a motel, and every day Mia takes charge of the front desk while her mom and dad clean. Keys that don't work and cranky customers? No problem!"
"Morrigan Crow is cursed, so she's used to dirty looks, taking the blame, and her family pretending she doesn't exist.

But Morrigan's grim, solitary world flips on its side when an eccentric man shows up on her doorstep the day she's supposed to die."
"I love everything about my library . . . the way the adult section's shelves are so tall you can get lost in them, the happy buzz that seems to radiate off readers, the cozy couch in the nonfiction section, the colorful magazine rack . . . What? Did you just call me a book nerd? Why, yes, yes I am."
"Lou just got back from theater camp, and she's even more infatuated with being on stage than ever! When she spots her new neighbor sporting a Mary Poppins: the Musical T-shirt, her active imagination kicks into overdrive. Could he possibly be an MTN, musical theater nerd, just like her?"
"Summer's here! Blue skies, water parks, and picnics ahead . . . right? I love everything about summer: mango popsicles, late-night trampoline jumps, and most importantly, no school. But we've all had a case of the Summer Boredom Blues before."
"Of course Annabel feels pressure to be perfect; she grew up in a home with two beautiful sisters, and a mother who encouraged all three girls to model. The oldest sister, Kirsten, is as loud as a foghorn and has a lot to say. The middle sister, Whitney, struggles with an eating disorder and an awful attitude that's put the whole family through the wringer. Her mom always said to be kind, so that's what Annabel tries to be: nice."
"Great books are the ones that that make you want to be more like the characters, to the point where their words are constantly running through your head. Great books make you want to live in them. They are the ones that force you to keep studying whenever you think of Hermione Granger or ask thousands of questions and look for all the answers because of Callie Vee. Great books are the ones that you come back to again and again because the people in them have inspired you to be a better version of yourself."
"Daddy Long Legs is the absolutely perfect book to read if you're lonely, in want of a rosebud bouquet, or a person in general. Jerusha Abbott (isn't that an awful name? She thinks so too.) is facing a bleak life as an eighteen-year-old orphan living in the John Grier
"Poignant and gripping, Albom's moving read fades in on a middle-aged man named Mitch, a sports writer unhappy with his life. Decades ago, he promised his favorite professor he'd keep in touch, but he had forgotten all about him until one night when he was watching the news."
"I'm super excited to write this post because it means I get to be a total dork for 4273 characters! Today, I've put together a list of 8 totally amazing gifts for book lovers!

"Love is in the air! Children are writing names on the backs of cardboard valentines, classrooms are decked out with paper hearts and crepe paper, the store is selling red hearts full of chocolate a dime a dozen . . . To all I say: bring me books!"
"Perfect for fans of Fish in a Tree and Out of my Mind, Focused offers a unique perspective on ADHD by showing it through the eyes of a plucky heroine. Readers will love Clea's honest take and her humor and compassion. I guarantee this fresh new novel will become a fan favorite!"
"I will not call Sage, the main character in the book, a heroine. Her lack of perfection is simplistic and freeing in one sense, and her adamancy against changing her ways is morally corrupt in another. Again and again, Picoult raises a question. Are these characters monsters, good people in difficult situations, or just fundamentally human? Or are they all of these?"
