Book Riot: Young Adult Quarterly Subscription Review #BYA02 Leads to You

Everything Leads to You by Nina Lacour – Retail Value $9.99 (On Amazon for $7.72)

Summary of the book from Amazon:

Just out of high school, Emi Price is a talented young set designer already beginning to thrive in the L.A. film scene. But her artistic eye has failed her in one key area: helping her to design a love life that’s more than make-believe. Then she finds a mysterious letter at an estate sale, and it sends her chasing down the loose ends of a movie icon’s hidden life. And along the way, she finds Ava, and at long last, Emi’s own hidden life begins to bloom.

Book Riot: Young Adult Quarterly Subscription Review #BYA02 Infinite

A Sense of the Infinite by Hilary T. Smith – Retail Value $17.99 (On Amazon for $12.24)

Summary of the book from Amazon:

By the author of the critically acclaimed Wild Awake, a beautiful coming-of-age story about deep friendship, the weight of secrets, and the healing power of nature.

It’s senior year of high school, and Annabeth is ready—ready for everything she and her best friend, Noe, have been planning and dreaming. But there are some things Annabeth isn’t prepared for, like the constant presence of Noe’s new boyfriend. Like how her relationship with her mom is wearing and fraying. And like the way the secret she’s been keeping hidden deep inside her for years has started clawing at her insides, making it hard to eat or even breathe.

But most especially, she isn’t prepared to lose Noe.

For years, Noe has anchored Annabeth and set their joint path. Now Noe is drifting in another direction, making new plans and dreams that don’t involve Annabeth. Without Noe’s constant companionship, Annabeth’s world begins to crumble. But as a chain of events pulls Annabeth further and further away from Noe, she finds herself closer and closer to discovering who she’s really meant to be—with her best friend or without.

Hilary T. Smith’s second novel is a gorgeously written meditation on identity, loss, and the bonds of friendship.

Book Riot: Young Adult Quarterly Subscription Review #BYA02 Chasing Shadows

Chasing Shadows by Swati Avasthi – Retail Value $10.99 (On Amazon for $8.40)

Summary of the book from Amazon:

Corey, Holly, and Savitri are closer than family until a random act of violence shatters their world. A gunman shoots at their car, leaving Corey dead, Holly in a coma, and Savitri the sole witness to the crime.

When Holly wakes up, she is changed—determined to hunt down Corey’s killer, whatever the cost. Savitri fears that Holly is running wild, losing her grip on reality. Friends should stand by each other in times of crisis. But can you hold on too tight? Too long?

Swati Avasthi delivers a riveting novel that will appeal to fans of Laini Taylor and Laurie Halse Anderson.

Verdict: This is one of my favorite book boxes ever! I love that there were 3 books in the box, and two of them (A Sense of the Infinite and Everything Leads to You) were on my wishlist! I love the bookish extras too! This box has a retail value of about $57 ($47 if you count the Amazon discounts). I personally think the signed bookplate and curation add to the value too.

What do you think of the #BYA02 box?

  1. I would consider subscribing to this if the price was lower – I do have to save some of my paycheck! 😉 Any coupon codes?

  2. This box came just in time for my birthday and had a book light and more library cards (I have a set I got on ModCloth that they will work perfectly with) – both of which were on my wishlist. Love this box!

  3. I was so excited to get this box. This may be my fave subscription box!

  4. I am almost finished with Chasing Shadows. I have never read a graphic novel before and this one is great. I love, love, love this subscription. I would buy this monthly if it was available.
