Discussion: HEA All the Way!

I know this is going to be sort of controversial. I see people complain all the time about how it's "predictable" or "too neat", but if there's one thing I will never get enough of, it's an HEA.

Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Supervillain and Me - Danielle Banas

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I can't wait for The Supervillain and Me!

The Supervillain and Me
Danielle Banas
Series: Morriston Superheroes, #1
Release Date: July 10, 2019
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Waited on by: Sam
As witty as it is heartpounding, this fresh take on the beloved superhero genre is all about finding your own way to shine even when it seems everyone else around you is, well... super.

Never trust a guy in spandex.

In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind.

That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.

After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.

Chosen by readers like you for Macmillan's young adult imprint Swoon Reads, The Supervillain and Me is a hilarious, sweet, and action-packed novel by debut author Danielle Banas that proves no one is perfect, not even superheroes.
So, that synopsis makes me think of something like this:

Meg = Abby

The Pros of Cons
Alison Cherry, Lindsay Ribar, Michelle Schusterman
Series: n/a
Age/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
Publisher: Point
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Drummer Phoebe Byrd prides herself on being one of the guys, and she's ready to prove it by kicking all their butts in the snare solo competition at the Indoor Percussion Association Convention.

Writer Vanessa Montoya-O'Callaghan has been looking forward to the WTFcon for months. Not just because of the panels and fanfiction readings but because WTFcon is where she'll finally meet Soleil, her internet girlfriend, for the first time.

Taxidermy assistant Callie Buchannan might be good at scooping brains out of deer skulls, but that doesn't mean it's her passion. Since her parents' divorce, her taxidermist father only cares about his work, and assisting him at the World Taxidermy and Fish-Carving Championships is the only way Callie knows to connect with him.

When a crazy mix-up in the hotel lobby brings the three girls together, they form an unlikely friendship against a chaotic background of cosplay, competition, and carcasses!

My Week in Review

I am sad to say, this is the end of our jeans week. I will miss them dearly. Back to ironing for me. The winter that never ends is starting to get me down. I guess I should be grateful we have not had any more snow, but I just want to ditch the winter jacket, you know?
