The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren

Ages 18+

The Soulmate Equation

Jess Davis is a single mom and a statistician whose parents aren’t in her life, but that’s okay because her grandparents help her raise her 7-year-old daughter Juno. She is convinced she doesn’t have time to date – until she hears about the GeneticAlly, a DNA-based dating company – and is intrigued. However, she is a 98% match with the company’s founder, and can’t quite wrap her head around it. Is it be too good to be true? Christina Lauren does it again – I was sucked in from beginning to end.

The Best Worst Summer by Elizabeth Eulberg

Grades 4 – 6

The Best Worst Summer

Told in alternating timelines in 1989 and 2021, this adorable book about two sets of best friends hit the mark for me. It is the best summer for Jessica and Melissa who are BFFs in 1989, and the worst summer for Peyton, who has just moved four hours away (which might as well be 100 hours away) from her own best friend. She is very bummed out until she finds a time capsule that Melissa and Jessica buried when they were kids in the 80s, and explores it, and history, with her new friend Lucas. Eulberg takes readers on an adventure they won’t soon forget.
