  1. Thank you so much for the shoutout and for including UtL here – I love love love this list! And I did not know Padma Venakatraman had another book out – her covers are so gorgeous!

  2. I loved the list of the books, there’s a few on that list that I’ve picked that I’m going to try and pick up this month, and see if I can’t get at least one or two of them read. I was a little sad to see that there weren’t that many NA books on there, like Seth and Greyson by Jessica Sorensen. It’s a fantastic book. 🙂

  3. I don’t read/know of a lot of NA which is why it’s not on there but I think I’ll start to dip my toes into it which is when I’ll spotlight all of those books!

  4. Great list! I’ve read some of these and I want to read a lot of them! Though I’m a tad disappointed Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, my favorite book of the year and possibly all-time, isn’t anywhere on this list. 🙁
