A ton of books this week — “Boys, Girls, and Other Hazardous Materials” by Rosalind Wiseman, “Firespell” by Chloe Neill, “The Iron King” by Julie Kagawa, “Perfect Chemistry” by Simone Elkeles, and “Very LeFreak” by Rachel Cohn.

I’ve already read three out of the five…and can highly recommend them! Still need to get to “Firespell” and “Very LeFreak,” but add the other three to your list of to-reads.
