Title: The Problem with Forever
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: May 17, 2016
Synopsis: For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.
Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.
It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory faces a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard.

2015 was a great year for reading! Here are my top ten books I read this year:
Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Lux series is one of all-time favorites and Daemon Black is the ultimate book boyfriend. So getting to read more from his POV was definitely a highlight of the year! <3
Crash & Burn by Abigail Roux
The final book in the Cut & Run series was released this year and it was definitely bittersweet. :')
Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout
The last book in The Dark Elements came out this year and it was absolutely wonderful! #TeamRoth
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
This was so fun and magical and feels-inducing! <3
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
A beautiful retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales, Beauty and the Beast.
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
This book was everything! Told in a refreshingly different format, it was a fantastic read!
Powerless by Tera Lynn Childs and Tracy Deebs
Powerless was so freakin' good! I definitely didn't expect to love it as much as I did, but it's fun and exciting.
Carry the Ocean by Heidi Cullinan
A truly eye-opening and inspirational book, it had to make the list!
Lord of the White Hell books 1 & 2 by Ginn Hale
Okay, I know these are technically two books, but I read them back-to-back, so in my mind it's like they were just one giant fantastical read.
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
You don't see many YA westerns, but thankfully Erin Bowman decided to write one, because it was amazing. The main character is badass and I loved getting to go on this adventure with her.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I finally read Fangirl this year and it was just as amazing as everyone says it is!
Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
I read my first Colleen Hoover book this year, and I get it now! I'll definitely be reading more from her.
The Academy by Emmaline Andrews
I have a soft spot for the girl-disguises-herself-as-boy type book and this one is a great one!
Out of the Easy by Ruta Septys
Out of the Easy is a wonderful story made all the more amazing by being set in New Orleans, which kind of becomes it's own character.
Doon series by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon
I read the first three books in the Doon series and really enjoyed them! They're fun, set in Scotland, and features a lovable cast of characters.
