Summary of More Than Maybe by Erin Hahn

Luke and Vada are crazy in like with each other-only neither one knows about the other’s feelings.

18 year old Luke has a popular-but-retired punk rock dad who can help him find fame, but Luke just wants to write music in private and record his podcast with his twin brother (when said brother isn’t out on dates with his boyfriend).

Vada, a classmate, is obsessed with music and plans to attend the music journalism program at UCLA and secure a Rolling Stone internship. She’s well on her way, working at a legendary club courtesy of her mom’s boyfriend and making a name for herself through his popular music blog.

Luke and Vada crush on each other from afar, but until they work together at the club, neither has a clue that they’re about to fall in love, or one will go viral.  But life isn’t just unicorns and rainbows, the course of true love never did run smooth.

Summary of The Lost City by Amanda Hocking: a high fantasy book

Ulla was abandoned in an isolated city as a baby, taken in by strangers and raised hidden away like many of the trolls of mixed blood. Even knowing this truth, she’s never stopped wondering about her family.

When Ulla is offered an internship working alongside the handsome Pan at a prestigious institution, she jumps at the chance to use this opportunity to hopefully find her parents. All she wants is to focus on her job and the search for her parents, but all of her attempts to find them are blocked when she learns her mother may be connected to the royal family.

A stunning fantasy adventure that is Westworld meets The Handmaid’s Tale. 
THE GOOD LUCK GIRLS:

Aster, the protector
Violet, the favorite
Tansy, the medic
Mallow, the fighter
Clementine, the catalyst

The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls–they know their luck is anything but. Sold to a “welcome house” as children and branded with cursed markings. Trapped in a life they would never have chosen.

When Clementine accidentally murders a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom,      justice, and revenge in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by Arketta’s most vicious and powerful forces, human &  inhuman, their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one Good Luck Girl to another…..

A story that only the youngest or most desperate would  ever believe.

It’s going to take more than luck for them all to survive.
