New Adult
hosted by Victoria from Confessions of a Twenty Something Fiction Writer, Tara from Tater's Tall Tails, and Barbara from Basia's Bookshelf.
New Adult is something I am happily for, and I love that it's turning into a "thing." I know there's some debate about what it is and if it's a real category and yadda yadda, but here's the Ashley Truth: it is fantastic, and whether it's got a heading at BN or not, I love it and want to read it ALL.
Just Graduated: 5 Novels
1. Losing It by Cora Carmack
2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
3. Easy by Tammara Weber
4. Slammed by Colleen Hoover
5. ???

Standalone Reading Challenge
hosted by IceyBooks and Britta
Because I talk so much shit about series and my impatience that I should probably read some standalones to quell my anxiety.
1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
2. This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
3. Golden by Jessi Kirby
4. Severed Heads, Broken Hearts by Robyn Schneider
5. Out of the Easy by Rutya Sepetys

7. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
8. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
