22429350The Start of Me and You
by Emery Lord
Release Date: March 31st, 2015

It’s been a year since it happened—when Paige Hancock’s first boyfriend died in an accident. After shutting out the world for a year, 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?

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.
Jess's thoughts: This will be the first book that I've read by this author. I added it to by TBR and wish list just for the cover alone. It really sounds like something I would definitely enjoy. I've read books of a similar story and they're always a little heartfelt and emotional, but completely worth the ride. I look forward to reading it :)

20657437 Salt & Stone (Fire & Flood #2)
by Victoria Scott 
Release Date: February 24th, 2015

What would you do to save someone you love?

In Fire & Flood, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't quit--she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.

But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?

The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left--and only one can win.
Donna's thoughts: I really enjoyed the first book - Fire and Flood and so I'm eagerly awaiting to see where the author takes the sequel!

Both books sound really great, especially The Start of Me and You. I haven't read the first book in the Fire and Flood series but it sounds like an interesting series. Great pick!
