New Release Tuesday...The Ones I'm Psyched For [9]

Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy

What if you’d been living your life as if you were dying—only to find out that you had your whole future ahead of you? 

When sixteen-year-old Alice is diagnosed with leukemia, her prognosis is grim. To maximize the time she does have, she vows to spend her final months righting wrongs—however she sees fit. She convinces her friend Harvey, whom she knows has always had feelings for her, to help her with a crazy bucket list that’s as much about revenge (humiliating her ex-boyfriend and getting back at her arch nemesis) as it is about hope (doing something unexpectedly kind for a stranger and reliving some childhood memories). But just when Alice’s scores are settled, she goes into remission.

Now Alice is forced to face the consequences of all that she’s said and done, as well as her true feelings for Harvey. But has she done irreparable damage to the people around her, and to the one person who matters most? 

I've been excited about Side Effects May Vary since I first heard about it last fall. I think the concept is different from what's out there but something all of us have thought about at some point in our life. I mean, who wouldn't want to settle all of our scores with the chance of no repercussions?

Check it out on Goodreads.

Other notable new releases

  • Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover - from the summary it looks a little like a cliche YA contemporary romance but I've heard a lot of great things about this book in the past few days so I think I'm going to have to give it a read.
