Once Upon A Read-a-Thon Update #2

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

To do a quick update (so I can get back to reading), I just want to let you guys know how far I got. I finished up Desires of the Dead, halfway through Hold Still, and about five chapters into Devouring!

My goal for today is to actually finish both Hold Still and Devouring, so I can finally get to Matched, which I'm really looking forward to reading(:

And since I did finish one book on my list, I figured why not just add one more? So I'm adding...

She's So Dead To Us, by Kieran Scott.

"When having money is all that matters, what happens when you lose it all?
Perfect, picturesque Orchard Hill. It was the last thing Ally Ryan saw in the rear-view mirror as her mother drove them out of town and away from the shame of the scandal her father caused when his hedge fund went south and practically bankrupted all their friends — friends that liked having trust funds and new cars, and that didn't like constant reminders that they had been swindled. So it was adios, Orchard Hill. Thanks for nothing.
Now, two years later, Ally's mother has landed a job back at the site of their downfall. So instead of Ally's new low-key, happy life, it'll be back into the snake pit with the likes of Shannen Moore and Hammond Ross.
But then there's Jake Graydon. Handsome, wealthy, bored Jake Graydon. He moved to town after Ally left and knows nothing of her scandal, but does know that he likes her. And she likes him. So off into the sunset they can go, right? Too bad Jake's friends have a problem with his new crush since it would make Ally happy. And if anyone deserves to be unhappy, it's Ally Ryan.
Ally was hoping to have left all the drama in the past, but some things just can't be forgotten. Isn't there more to life than money?"
