Friday Finds [Aug. 25th]

Random Quote of the Day: “Never despair; but if you do, work on in despair.” – Edmund Burke 

Hello sunshines! 🔆

HAPPY FRIDAY!! It has been a long week and I am excited that it is now the weekend!

Friday Finds is a meme hosted by @adailyrhythm. It is a chance for you to showcase the books you’ve ‘found’ and added to your TBR list! They do not have to be books you purchased and they could’ve been found anywhere — bookstores, online, library, etc. I don’t know how many Finds I’ll actually be sharing today just because this week has been pretty crazy and hence, I haven’t had much time to venture through GR to discover new Finds. But anyways, here’s what I HAVE found since my last Friday Finds (:

32682118The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive.

Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess. Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing. Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher. And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app…

Title: ARISTOTLE AND DANTE DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE

Author: Benjamin Alire Saenz

Genre: Young Adult, Realistic Fiction

Published: February 21st, 2012

Okay, if you haven’t seen this cover or even heard of this novel yet then you are living under a rock. Not only is the cover drop dead gorgeous, but it’s also a DIVERSE READ so many people have talked about it all over the media. I, myself, haven’t read this beauty but it is on my TBR! I love the font of the title and just the overall artistic feel of the cover. This novel has elements of LGBTQIA+ and Coming of Age so if you interested in those topics, feel free to read the synopsis down below!

Dimple Shah has it all figured out. With graduation behind her, she’s more than ready for a break from her family, from Mamma’s inexplicable obsession with her finding the “Ideal Indian Husband.” Ugh. Dimple knows they must respect her principles on some level, though. If they truly believed she needed a husband right now, they wouldn’t have paid for her to attend a summer program for aspiring web developers…right?

Trixie Watson has two very important goals for senior year: to finally save enough to buy the set of Doctor Who figurines at the local comic books store, and to place third in her class and knock Ben West–and his horrendous new mustache that he spent all summer growing–down to number four. Trixie will do anything to get her name ranked over Ben’s, including give up sleep and comic books–well, maybe not comic books–but definitely sleep. After all, the war of Watson v. West is as vicious as the Doctor v. Daleks and Browncoats v. Alliance combined, and it goes all the way back to the infamous monkey bars incident in the first grade…
