This series was actually flying under my radar. I heard about it when it was announced, but it didn’t really stand out. But then Barnes and Noble had it up at half off, and the artwork looked very pretty, so I decided to add it. Now I’m looking forward to getting it. The story sounds interesting, so I’m intrigued.


The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Release Date: March 31, 2015

Goodreads Synopsis:

Following her pitch-perfect debut Open Road Summer, Emery Lord pens another gorgeous story of best friends, new love, & second chances.

Brimming with heartfelt relationships and authentic high-school dynamics The Start of Me and You proves that it’s never too late for second chances.

It’s been a year since it happened—when Paige Hancock’s first boyfriend died in an accident. After shutting out the world for two years, Paige is finally ready for a second chance at high school . . . and she has a plan. First: Get her old crush, Ryan Chase, to date her—the perfect way to convince everyone she’s back to normal. Next: Join a club—simple, it’s high school after all. But when Ryan’s sweet, nerdy cousin, Max, moves to town and recruits Paige for the Quiz Bowl team (of all things!) her perfect plan is thrown for a serious loop. Will Paige be able to face her fears and finally open herself up to the life she was meant to live?


I still haven’t picked up Lord’s first book, though I don’t know why. I’ve heard a lot of really good things about it, and this one, and they both sound like something I would like. This one sounds just as cute, and I’m hoping to get my hands on it at some point.

What are you looking forward to?
