35430572.jpgTitle: Remedial Rocket Science: A Romantic Comedy
Author: Susannah Nix
Release Date: August 21st 2017
Category: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Content Warning: Past Suicide

Synopsis:

College student Melody Gage is craving a night of no-strings fun when she meets charming out-of-towner Jeremy, and that’s exactly what she gets. Until three years later, when Melody relocates to Los Angeles and finds herself thrust back into Jeremy’s orbit.

Not only does her hunky one-night stand work at the same aerospace company where she’s just started her dream job, he’s the CEO’s son. Jeremy’s got a girlfriend and a reputation as a bad boy, so Melody resolves to keep her distance. Despite her good intentions, a series of awkward circumstances—including an embarrassing crying jag, a latte vs. computer catastrophe, and an emergency fake date—throw her together with the heavenly-smelling paragon of hotness.

As the billionaire playboy and nerdy IT girl forge an unlikely friendship, Melody’s attraction to Jeremy grows deeper than she’s ready to admit. Will she risk it all for a shot at her happy ending?

You know those books that leave you feeling confused about what to feel & kind of lost in a way. Well, Remedial Rocket Science is one of those books.

Welcome to my first tag!!!! I’ve never been tagged in a post before so I’m really honored that Annie over @ I LIVE AND BREATHE WORDS thought to tag me. That being said, the Mid-Year Book Freakout tag isn’t the one I was originally tagged in. The one I was tagged in is the Anonymous Bookaholics Tag.  Since I don’t like how the term trivializes addiction, I decided to still do a popular book tag, but just changed out which tag (which means this is an inspired tag more than anything. whoops 😂). Anyways, let’s get started~

And here I am again with another entry into the #BroodyBFF Challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with the #BroodyBFF Challenge. It’s a series of challenges being held for #BroodyBFFs (aka the Broody street team) in in honor of the swoon-worthy Brooding YA Hero getting his own book, Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me, out October 3rd.

This week’s written challenge is….. writing a post about a song that gives you feelings for a particular YA book. The book I associate with a certain song is a very special Young Adult Series (cause I’m a cheater). In fact, it is the Young Adult Series that made me love reading.

Welcome to my first official Discussion Post!!!

Subscription Boxes are a topic I’ve been wanting to talk about for a long time. As someone who went through a Bookish Subscription Box phase, I’ve always wanted to talk about why I gave them up and see what you guys think of them.

As you may have noticed, I’ve been posting less reviews and less posts in general. There’s a reason for this. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been thinking about where I want Lacy Literacy to go (and maybe it’s because I just turned 19 and am having a ‘it’s my last year as a technical teen’ identity crisis. or maybe it’s because it’s almost my 6 month blog-iversary ).

Publication Date: June 27, 2017
Publisher: Avon Books

Synopsis:

The one woman he will never forget…

Malcolm Bevingstoke, Duke of Haven, has lived the last three years in self-imposed solitude, paying the price for a mistake he can never reverse and a love he lost forever. The dukedom does not wait, however, and Haven requires an heir, which means he must find himself a wife by summer’s end. There is only one problem—he already has one.

The one man she will never forgive…

After years in exile, Seraphina, Duchess of Haven, returns to London with a single goal—to reclaim the life she left and find happiness, unencumbered by the man who broke her heart. Haven offers her a deal; Sera can have her freedom, just as soon as she finds her replacement…which requires her to spend the summer in close quarters with the husband she does not want, but somehow cannot resist.

A love that neither can deny…

The duke has a single summer to woo his wife and convince her that, despite their broken past, he can give her forever, making every day…

33158561Title: Wild Beauty
Author: Anna-Marie McLemore
Release Date: October 3rd 2017
Category: Young Adult
Genre: Magical Realism
Pages: 320

Synopsis:

For nearly a century, the Nomeolvides women have tended the grounds of La Pradera, the lush estate gardens that enchant guests from around the world. They’ve also hidden a tragic legacy: if they fall in love too deeply, their lovers vanish. But then, after generations of vanishings, a strange boy appears in the gardens.

The boy is a mystery to Estrella, the Nomeolvides girl who finds him, and to her family, but he’s even more a mystery to himself; he knows nothing more about who he is or where he came from than his first name. As Estrella tries to help Fel piece together his unknown past, La Pradera leads them to secrets as dangerous as they are magical in this stunning exploration of love, loss, and family.

Anna-Marie McLemore does it again… and really who is surprised.

Expressing how much I love books by Anna-Marie is difficult. Everything about her story telling skills is enthralling. I get so sucked up into it that I feel chewed up and spit out by the end (but in a good way).Wild Beauty is a spectacular, enchanting story about family, love, and the secrets in the ground below us. It’s rich with lore, queer characters, and is beautiful in every way possible.

I hope you can find some cool releases to look forward to~
