So I have two new favorite things. One is Netgalley. The other is sitting on the ground at Mckays, looking through their shelves of books. (And finding the cheapest one that sounds interesting.) The books bought below are from Mckays, our local used bookstore where you can find the entire Twilight series multiple times over, to (several) complete leatherbound collections of Shakespeare's plays, to a tiny book of poems written by an unknown from 1920.
Anything about snow and April...I dunno, it caught my eye. Plus I wanted to get a book with a male protagonist. My upcoming novel is from a boy's point of view and I need to familiarize myself.
The cover captured my attention immediately, and then the title. By the time I'd read the first sentence of the description, I was sold.
This was on the "If you liked the Fault in Our Stars shelf..." and so I grabbed it because a) novels and writing, b) apparently it is like the book, which so far is pretty good? and c) I flipped open to a random page and the first sentence made me laugh. (Which already disproves that it is like tFiOS because I've already cried TWICE) Lastly, it was $2.
It has faeries, thank you very much. Plus I want something supernaturally. The cover could use work though. I know they say don't judge a book by its cover but...
This is the first 100% romance I've read in months and I am totally not nervous about how that is going to go. Because naturally its going to be great. And it has a bit of a fantasy element to it, with her traveling in dreams and the like.

I got this on Netgalley for which I am very thankful for. (Automatic approval hoorah!) It is adult literature- as in not teen fiction, or with monsters and magic. It is a realistic relationship in New York City. I am looking forward to reading this, and leaving the YA fiction world for a bit.
