"If love be rough with you, be rough with love."
Pure Red by Danielle Joseph: Cassia Bernard wants to find her pure red, her heart's desire and her passion. But during a hot summer in Miami, she'll learn that what the heart wants isn't always what it needs.
This book reminds me of every sad Taylor Swift song I've ever heard and I feel like it would be about disillusionment and about finding out that nothing is clear cut. Sounds cool and worth a look.
Release Date: September 8th, 2011
Stay With Me by Paul Griffin: Cece and Mack are different. Cece is a straight A student with plans for the future and Mack is a high school dropout from a broken home. It's so unexpected when they connect over a rescue dog and fall in love.
But when Mack's past comes back, will it make them stronger or pull them apart?
Sounds like it has the potential to be a great book. I really want to know more about Mack and his past misdeeds as well as how Cece and Mack will impact each others lives.
However, I do feel like the cover could use some work because it really does not catch my eye in a hey-this-is-pretty kind of way. And I get the impression that the dog is copy and pasted into that photo. If your copy and pasting is obvious then something is definitely wrong.
Release Date: September 8th, 2011.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: Lola Nolan believes that putting on your clothes each day should be like dressing up. The wilder the pattern, the crazier the colours, the more perfect it is. Despite her lawless style and rocker boyfriend, she's got a big heart of gold.
But when the Bell twins, Calliope and Cricket, move back into town and next door, Lola's going to have to deal with their shared history and the old feelings she used to have for Cricket.
Stephanie Perkins needs to keep churning out sweet and adorable books just so I can revel in their romance. Like Anna and the French Kiss, this novel sounds like a lot of fun and I can't wait to get my hands on it. The cover is also really pleasing to the eye with all the colour and finally, we get to see a guy on the cover.
Release Date: September 29th, 2011.
