Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.
Daniel: I’ve always been the good son, the good student, living up to my parents’ high expectations. Never the poet. Or the dreamer. But when I see her, I forget about all that. Something about Natasha makes me think that fate has something much more extraordinary in store—for both of us.
The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
Seriously? Nicole Yoon needs to write faster. I need more books! I loved this one even a little bit more than Everything, Everything. I fell in love with both of the main characters in this book. They made me laugh and they made me cry. I was devasted towards the end and then unbelievable happy with the ending. This book is about one day. One day when two people cross paths, both who seem lost in different ways. They are lost, and they find each other. This book was so sweet and so endearing. My heart felt like it might explode. Nicola Yoon is very convincing in making me feel like I could believe in love at first sight.

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
I am in love with Nicola Yoon. I wish she had more books out. I read the two she has written practically in two days. I never considered myself a huge fan of contemporaries, but I think I was fooling myself. Well, I enjoy well-written contemporaries. I love the diversity in this book. And I love that there is no question as to why it’s there. I fell in love with these characters and I felt the “twist” was well done. I know there were some people irritated with the ending and for whatever reason felt it was a cop-out. But to me, it made perfect sense and allowed me to sympathize with a character I didn’t understand needed some help. Loved this book.

From The #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Of Gone Girl
Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice" of Kinnakee, Kansas. She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.
This book is fucked up. That was the exact sentence I said to my roommate once I finished the book. It was so fucked up. But oh so good. I have recently become obsessed with the My Favorite Murder podcast. If you don’t know what that is, shame on you. After listening to 36 episodes of that podcast and then reading this book…damn. I know the book is fiction, but I can completely see this happening.
This book is horrifying but I could not stop turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next.

A canny young woman is struggling to survive by perpetrating various levels of mostly harmless fraud. On a rainy April morning, she is reading auras at Spiritual Palms when Susan Burke walks in. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. However, when the "psychic" visits the eerie Victorian home that has been the source of Susan's terror and grief, she realizes she may not have to pretend to believe in ghosts anymore. Miles, Susan's teenage stepson, doesn't help matters with his disturbing manner and grisly imagination. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it.
I am not going to say much about this book because it is so short. What I will say is that this book may be tiny, but it packs a hell of a creepy punch.
