    I only found out yesterday that MY LIFE NEXT DOOR was available on NetGalley and now I'm a bit scared that I'm a bit too late requesting it. Crossing my fingers to be approved.
    Also love the rest of the books you got! THE SUMMER I TURNED PRETTY is a lovely read (and I sooo need to continue reading the series soon) and definitely want to read THE STORY OF US and SECOND CHANCE SUMMER as well. :) Happy reading!
