Title: Paper Planes and Other Things We Lost
Genre: Clean Teen/YA Romance
Release date: June 6th (Tentative Date)
ABOUT THE BOOK
On June 18, 1993, Flight 397 crashed off the coast of Long Island.
But this story isn’t about the crash. Not completely.
This is a story about two high school seniors living very different lives, who share one connection: they both lost parents on that fateful flight.
Slowly, letters bridge the gap between California and Pennsylvania as Ruby Kaminski and Brett Pratt find a way to remember the past while looking toward the future.
This is a story about hope, paper planes, and the other things they lost.

She is an avid Yankees fan, loves New England, being outdoors and misses snow. However she thinks southern boys are hotter, Alabama football is the only REAL football out there and sweet tea is the best thing this side of heaven and her children's laughter!
Her family, an amazing husband and three awesome kids, have planted their roots in the middle of Michele's two childhood homes in Charlotte, North Carolina.

March was a pretty slow reading month for me. I really only read 3 books, 2 of them, however, were novella collections so it was ALMOST like reading a bunch of books!
I started the month with a book that I was sent to read and review here on the blog...
The Revenger by Debra Anastasia.
WARNING: NOT A YA READ!!! Very Adult subject matter.
The real hero of this story is dead. You should have met him. He was a beautiful man. The love of my life. I didn’t deserve him. Now what’s left are the jagged edges of the person I am without him, and what I have to do to get by. This isn’t even a story about love. Not really. It’s a twisted tale of revenge and hate—a happily never after.
The only man in my life now is the one I have to kill.
I’m Savvy Raine.
I used to be a wife.
I used to be a mother.
Now I am the Revenger.

Next, I moved on to Cassandra Clare books to prepare for her new book Lady Midnight. I had already read both the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices series... but I hadn't read the novellas yet. The first set of novellas, which I own the hardcover bind up of, was The Bane Chronicles. These novellas take place before, after, and in between the ID and MI series books.
The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
I gave each story either a 4 or 5 star, so I averaged the whole thing out to a 4-star book.
This collection of eleven short stories illuminates the life of the enigmatic Magnus Bane, whose alluring personality, flamboyant style, and sharp wit populate the pages of the #1 New York Times bestselling series, The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices.
Originally released one-by-one as e-only short stories by Cassandra Clare, Maureen Johnson, and Sarah Rees Brennan, this compilation presents all ten together in print for the first time and includes a never-before-seen eleventh tale, as well as new illustrated material.
I finished the month reading through her second novella collection, which ISN'T available as a bind-up at this time. Instead, you can get them in ebook from ebook retailers.
Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare
I averaged this one out to a five star!
The New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling collection of short stories chronicling the adventures of Simon Lewis as he trains to become a Shadowhunter is now available in print for the first time with ten brand-new comic illustrations!
