Along for the Ride

Goodreads description--It’s been so long since Auden slept at night. Ever since her parents’ divorce—or since the fighting started. Now she has the chance to spend a carefree summer with her dad and his new family in the charming beach town where they live.
A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.
In her signature pitch-perfect style, Sarah Dessen explores the hearts of two lonely people learning to connect.
This is my first Sarah Dessen...we'll see how I like it.

Goodreads description--The story of a girl named Chelsea Knot who takes a voluntary oath of silence after her gossip-mongering ways yield unexpected consequences…
Saying she’s sorry isn’t enough.

Goodreads description--The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate percentage of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance between her and the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand.
Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid. He spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring, and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Because I already participate in the In My Mailbox meme (above), I'm just going to use this one as way to recap my week.
THIS PAST WEEK:
Oh my goodness guys. This has been a busy week for me and the blog. (Well busier than my normal week on the blog.)
On Monday, I posted my review of One for the Money by Janet Evanovich (3.5 Stars).
On Tuesday, I participated in Top 10 Tuesday where I listed my Top 10 Characters I'd Like to Switch Places with for 24 Hours. I totally love Top 10 Tuesday.
On Wednesday, I shared a book I'm anxiously awaiting in Waiting on Wednesday...The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead.
UPCOMING THIS WEEK:
Monday, I've got a review of Incarceron for you. Tuesday is Top 10 Tuesday, and I'll be listing the Top 10 Post on My Blog That Give the Best Picture of Me as a Person and as a Reader. I'll be featuring a book I'm stoked about in Waiting on Wednesday. And Thursday, I'll be bringing you my review of Confessions of an Angry Girl. And that's all I've got planned for now.
