What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them - all at once?

Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren't love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she's written. One for every boy she's ever loved - five in all.

When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean's love life goes from imaginary to out of control. (Summary from Goodreads)

I love the premise of this story. I wonder who mailed the letters? And I can't wait to read it and find out how all her past crushes are resolved :)

Release Date: May 6, 2014

Would War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there.

At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life.

When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie.

Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past. (Summary from Goodreads)

1st - I LOVE Amy Plum's Revenants series SO MUCH!!! 2nd - This sounds SO great. Just like the Roanoke colony, but as if they were a colony hidden away from the world while the rest was happening outside of the rest. How interesting....I wonder what will come of it all...?

What are you waiting on this week?
