  1. I feel like my picks all have to do with how much I’m enjoying their covers. Since We Last spoke sounds really good and definitely gets my vote since The House Children is *definitely* not my thing. This is my first time hearing about Love & Other Curses, but it actually sounds right up my ally! And Hot Dog Girl has been on my TBR for a while! The premise (and the cover) just look like so much fun!
