Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Last year I read my first Morgan Matson book and I was completely delighted. After just one book, she became one of my auto-buy authors. And I was not disappointed by Save the Date.


The Wanderers by Meg Howry

It's time. Humans are ready to take their first steps on Mars. Well... almost ready. In four years, Prime Space will send its first team to Mars. For now, the team must go through the most realistic simulation they've ever experienced to prove that they're up for the task.

The Wild Robot by Peter Brown

When ROZZUM unit 7134 is activated on the island, she has no way of knowing that she does not belong there. She's been programmed to learn, so she immediately begins to learn. She learns to find shelter and how to survive in the wild. But none of the things living on the island, Roz included, expected her to thrive in the wild.

All That She Can See by Carrie Hope Fletcher

I have a lot of thoughts about this book. It was entertaining, and I read the entire thing in one day as I sat and waited for my bed to be delivered. I feel like there are many elements that make All That She Can See and improvement on Carrie Hope Fletcher's debut novel, On The Other Side (review here) but there are also so many other things that she did with this one that I felt like would have benefited from a stronger editorial hand.

Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt

Ally's been able to fool a lot of smart people. She's made it all the way to 5th grade without anyone (her mother, her brother, her teachers, her classmates) figuring out that she can't read. But Ally has a new teacher, and Mr. Daniels not only sees that Ally doesn't know how to read, but he just might know how to help her.
