Amber's Waiting on:

Title: All in Pieces 
Author: Suzanne Young
Genre: Contemporary, Romance 
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: November 8th 2016

Summary: 
From New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Young comes a heartrending new novel about a girl struggling to deal with anger issues while taking care of her younger brother with special needs. “Anger-management issues.” That’s how they classified Savannah Sutton after she stuck a pencil in her ex-boyfriend’s hand because he mocked her little brother, Evan, for being disabled. That’s why they sent her to Brooks Academy—an alternative high school that’s used as a temporary detention center. The days at Brooks are miserable, but at home, life is far more bleak. Savvy’s struggling to take care of her brother since her mom left years ago, and her alcoholic dad can’t be bothered. Life with Evan is a constant challenge, but he’s also the most important person in the world to Savvy. Then there’s Cameron, a new student at Brooks with issues of his own; a guy from a perfect family that Savvy thought only existed on TV. Cameron seems determined to break through every one of the walls Savvy’s built around herself, except if she lets herself trust him, it could make everything she’s worked so hard for fall apart in an instant. And with her aunt seeking custody of her brother and her ex-boyfriend seeking revenge, Savvy’s fighting to hold all the pieces together. But she’s not sure how much tighter she can be pulled before she breaks completely.

Jessica's Waiting on:

Title: RoseBloodAuthor: A.G. Howard
Genre: Fantasy
Publisher: Abrams
Publication Date: January 10th, 2017

Summary: In this modern day spinoff of Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germain has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide. Hoping creative direction will help, Rune’s mother sends her to a French arts conservatory for her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to The Phantom of the Opera. At RoseBlood, Rune secretly befriends the masked Thorn -- an elusive violinist who not only guides her musical transformation through dreams that seem more real than reality itself, but somehow knows who she is behind her own masks. As the two discover an otherworldly connection, a soul-deep romance blossoms. But when Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light, he’s forced to make a deadly choice: lead Rune to her destruction, or face the wrath of the phantom who has haunted the opera house for a century, and is the only father he’s ever known.


NOBODY UNDERSTANDS HOW EXCITED I AM FOR THIS BOOK!!!! The Phantom of the Opera is my favorite book/movie/musical of ALL TIME (seriously - it was even my sweet sixteen theme, that's how much I love it). So once I found out that a book was being made that revolved around the story....there's seriously nothing more perfect for me. I NEED THIS BOOK, AND I NEED IT RIGHT NOW. *the grabbiest hands of all of the grabby hands in the world*
