A Bookish Blind Date

 A Bookish Blind Date

If you read my post yesterday, I posted about going on a blind date with a book.  My librarian at my school wrapped books in white paper and decorated with Valentine messages to encourage students to take home a "bookish blind date".

I took home two bookish blind dates, just in case one of the books didn't interest me.  Plus it was super hard to decide which books to pick because they all were so cute and looked interesting.   I bet the Valentine message on top was a clue to what book was hiding inside.  So excited to find out what books I picked.

Inside of the book Valentine marked "Please Be My Date" was....  Drum roll....

Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
With a past too terrible to speak of, and a bleak, lonely future ahead of her, Aerin Renning is shocked to find she has earned a place at the most exclusive school in the universe. Aerin excels at Academy 7 in all but debate, where Dane Madousin?son of one of the most powerful men in the Alliance? consistently outtalks her. Fortunately Aerin consistently outwits him at sparring. They are at the top of their class until Dane jeopardizes everything and Aerin is unintentionally dragged down with him. When the pair is given a joint punishment, an unexpected friendship?and romance?begins to form. But Dane and Aerin both harbor dangerous secrets, and the two are linked in ways neither of them could ever have imagined. . . .

Inside of "Like Mustard and Ketchup, We're the Perfect Combination" is.... drum roll....

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:

Scarlett March lives to hunt the Fenris--the werewolves that took her eye when she was defending her sister Rosie from a brutal attack. Armed with a razor-sharp hatchet and blood-red cloak, Scarlett is an expert at luring and slaying the wolves. She's determined to protect other young girls from a grisly death, and her raging heart will not rest until every single wolf is dead.
Rosie March once felt her bond with her sister was unbreakable. Owing Scarlett her life, Rosie hunts ferociously alongside her. But even as more girls' bodies pile up in the city and the Fenris seem to be gaining power, Rosie dreams of a life beyond the wolves. She finds herself drawn to Silas, a young woodsman who is deadly with an ax and Scarlett's only friend--but does loving him mean betraying her sister and all that they've worked for?
