Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga where we share books we’ve bought this week. Find out more and join in here!
Reflecting on last week, I am so excited to say my copy of Legendary arrived and I got the cover I wanted – the crown. How great is that? I didn’t plan on buying any books this week at all, and then I got a little surprise.
My lovely friend Amy sent me a parcel which I got today, and it was the best kind of thing to unwrap, a book! Not only was it a book, but it was actually one I’ve wanted to read ever since it came out a year ago. And once I’ve finished Obsidio and Legendary, I’m definitely going to dive in and read this one!
Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.
Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back.
There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?
