The Haters by Jesse Andrews

Just didn't grab me. The tone was a little jarring and I kept putting it down so often with only reading half a page at the time that it was easier to move on.

The Movie Version by Emma Wunsch

A good bond between the siblings, but beyond this the plot felt a little uneasy. Hrmrm.

The Graces by Laure Eve

Witches are always good – this one seemed a little like the lunch scene in Twilight to begin with – the long descriptions of the Graces and why everyone idolises each member of the family, and how they are each more perfect than the last and beyond beautiful, etc.

Seven Ways we Lie by Riley Redgate

Hooked me instantly, and I was so glad it's already released so I was able to buy it immediately and devour it in one night. As it involves a teacher/student relationship, and as I work in HR for Dept Education dealing with this sort of thing, it was an interesting stance to take overall and one I was able to read (compared to how I couldn't read Tampa at all), and I enjoyed this one immensely.

The Romantics by Leah Konen

Just didn't grab me. First person is hard to get in to sometimes, and it’s easier to be annoyed by the narrator, which was the case here.

Maresi by Maria Turtschaninoff

Just didn't grab me. The characters sounded the same, and didn’t feel believable, unfortunately. The cover is stunning and out of all of them, I was looking forward to this one the most.

Every Falling Star by SungJu Lee & Susan McClennand

This was quite beautiful and descriptive, and after a shaky paragraph or three at the start it quickly draws you in and you get lost in the pages. A few things are over explained, but it makes it good for younger readers as they can then learn some history through it also. Another one where as soon as I was done with the sample, I wanted the rest straight away.
