Reading Rundown

Some Kind of Normal
by: Juliana Stone

Should you read it?: Maybe
...if you want a young adult romance with some unique perspectives.
Category: Young Adult

I really enjoyed this book. I loved that the characters have different backgrounds than in most books you’ve read. The main characters are the daughter of a pastor and a boy who was in a car accident and suffered a traumatic brain injury. She is tutoring him for the summer and it was just a really interesting take on a relationship developing. There were definitely surprises in the story and I found myself pleasantly surprised with the direction everything took. It was enjoyable, but not one of my favorites.

Real
by: Katy Evans

Should you read it?: Maybe
...if you like MMA fighting love stories.
Category: New Adult

This is about an underground fighter and a girl who is hired to be his sports rehab specialist. This was another one where the backgrounds of the characters was different than what you normally see. I tend to really like books about fighters! I really loved it. It is one of the steamier ones I’ve read, but it had enough character development and good writing that I would give it a yes if you already like New Adult books.

All Lined Up
by: Cora Carmack

Should you read it?: Maybe
...if you liked Friday Night Lights.
Category: New Adult

This is about the daughter of a football coach and a guy who is the second-string quarterback trying to earn a scholarship and first-string place on the team. It definitely reminded me of Friday Night Lights with all the Texas football and I mean that in the best way. I enjoyed it a lot and am interested in possibly reading more from the series.

Adulting
by: Kelly Williams Brown

Should you read it?: Maybe
...if you like lists and want some interesting life tips.
Category: Non-fiction

How to become a grown-up in 468 easy(ish) steps. This book was fun. I definitely found a few parts really helpful - like the basic cleaning supplies you need & a few reminders of what is and isn’t important in relationships in various contexts. There were several parts I wasn’t interested in - like dating - and several parts I didn’t necessarily agree with - like appropriate conversation topics (lol). But overall it was a fun read.
