From now on, I’ll be joining TBR Thursday hosted by Kimberly over at Kimberleyfaye Reads. This weekly feature is perfect to spotlight an unread book from our shelves, to decide whether to put it on the queue or put it back on the shelf. Or in my case, I could just gave it to someone more willing to read it. By the way, I will also include books on my TBR that I don’t have a copy yet.
Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Romance
Published: May 16th 2016 by HarperTeen
Sixteen-year-old Maguire knows the universe is against her. No matter how many charms she buys off the internet or good luck rituals she performs each morning, horrible things happen when she’s around. Like that time the roller coaster jumped off its tracks. Or the time the house next door caught on fire. Or the time her brother, father, and uncle were all killed in a car crash–and Maguire walked away with barely a scratch.
Despite what her therapist tells her, Maguire thinks it’s best to hide out in her room, far away from anyone she might accidentally hurt. But then she meets Jordy, an aspiring tennis star who wants to help her break her unlucky streak. Maguire knows that the best thing she can do for him is to stay away, but it turns out staying away might be harder than she thought.
This has been on my shelf since July 2016. WHAT, A YEAR ALREADY?? My apologies to the author and to the one who sent me this as my giveaway prize.
