The Extraordinaries – T.J. Klune

Fan-fiction, a neuro-diverse narrator, superheroes, and a whole lot of awkward maybe-I-love-my-best-friend-maybe-I-don’t moments…There is nothing but magic in this book!

Beach Read – Emily Henry

On the surface, this book is about two writers with writer’s block make a bet to see who can write (and sell) their next book. At its heart? This book is about grief, accepting the people you love despite the fact that they could break your heart in an instant, and forgiving yourself.

I simply adored January and Gus’ story, and I hope you will too.
