Hello everyone! I typically post reviews on Mondays but I decided to change it up after I saw this great meme hosted over at YA and Wine (which is a great blog, check it out if you haven’t already!). I gave NetGalley a break for a while after a string of not so great books and general ARC stress..but I was recently approved for a few and I am very excited about reading them.
Here is more information about this meme if you are interested in participating:
#ARCstravaganza is a weekly meme hosted by YA and Wine to give book bloggers/bookstagrammers a chance to show off their ARCs/eARCs that they are most excited about! Remember to comment on their weekly posts with a link to your own #ARCstravaganza blog post, or post a picture on Instagram using the #ARCstravaganza hashtag, and you will be entered to win an ARC copy of an upcoming YA novel! One winner will be chosen at random each month.
Here is my featured ARC for this week:
As You Wish by Chelsea Sedoti
What if you could ask for anything- and get it?
In the sandy Mojave Desert, Madison is a small town on the road between nothing and nowhere. But Eldon wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, because in Madison, everyone gets one wish—and that wish always comes true.
Some people wish for money, some people wish for love, but Eldon has seen how wishes have broken the people around him. And with the lives of his family and friends in chaos, he’s left with more questions than answers. Can he make their lives better? How can he be happy if the people around him aren’t? And what hope is there for any of them if happiness isn’t an achievable dream? Doubts build, leading Eldon to a more outlandish and scary thought: maybe you can’t wish for happiness…maybe, just maybe, you have to make it for yourself.
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

I was so excited to see another book by Chelsea Sedoti on NetGalley and even more excited to get it approved! I read Sedoti’s other book, The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett and really enjoyed her bizarre and hilarious stream of consciousness writing style. You can read my review of Lizzie here if you are interested. This book sounds weird, unique and exactly what I am looking for lately. I can’t wait!
Have you heard of Chelsea Sedoti? Have you heard of this book? Let me know in the comments!
