July ‘16 TBR List

Like every red-blooded American, I'm looking forward to exercising my right to be very irresponsible with fireworks on the Fourth of July. But at FYA HQ, we're also planning to celebrate our freedom to read, read, read all month long.

In addition to sunscreen and champ cans, our beach/pool bags are packed with books, so get the dish below on why we're excited (i.e. what's turning us on about each novel), then hit us up in the comments with your July must-reads!
