Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

51j8clojzol-_sx329_bo1204203200_

GoodReads Synopsis:

#1 bestselling author John Green returns with his first new novel since The Fault in Our Stars!

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

This is one of my current library loans and it ends tomorrow! I waited over 6 months for it and then when I finally got it over 2 weeks ago, I let myself be distracted by other books. So now I’m desperately trying to finish reading it in the last 24 hours before the loan ends. There’s still a huge wait list and I don’t want to be bumped back to the bottom. Nothing like a little pressure, huh?


I just finished reading:

Abandoned by Allison Brennan

GoodReads Synopsis:

Investigative reporter Max Revere has cracked many cases, but the one investigation she’s never attempted is the mystery from her own past. Her mother abandoned her when she was nine, sending her periodic postcards, but never returning to reclaim her daughter. Seven years after the postcards stop coming, Martha Revere is declared legally dead, with no sign of what may have happened to her. Until now.

With a single clue―that her mother’s car disappeared sixteen years ago in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay―Max drops everything to finally seek the truth. As Max investigates, and her mother’s story unfolds, she realizes that Martha teamed up with a con man. They traveled the world living off Martha’s trust and money they conned from others.

Though no one claims to know anything about Martha or her disappearance, Max suspects more than one person is lying. When she learns the FBI has an active investigation into the con man, Max knows she’s on the right path. But as Max digs into the dark secrets of this idyllic community, the only thing she might find is the same violent end as her mother.

New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan weaves the intimate, unputdownable story of an investigator confronting the most important–and most dangerous–mystery of her career.

This is an ARC so I should have a review already typed up, or at least be able to say that my review will be posted shortly. However, I’m a little behind with my reviews… I’ve been distracted lately and although I’ve made time for reading, I haven’t set aside any extra time for reviewing. Fortunately, none of the books that I need to review are being published soon, so I’m not technically behind. But I still have hard plans to sit down later this week and crank out some reviews!


What I’m reading next:

Like usual, I’m having a hard time deciding which book to read next. But I know it’ll be one of these four:

 

Have you read any of these books? Which one do you think I should start with? Leave me a comment below!
