Candor by Pam Bachorz

In a town where his father brainwashes everyone, Oscar Banks has found a way to secretly fight the subliminal Messages that turn even the most troubled kids into model citizens. On the outhside, he's the perfect Candor teen, and no one knows that he's built an entire business around helping new kids escape before the Messages take hold.

But the Nia Silva moves to town, and Oscar thinks she's perfect exactly the way she is. Soon he must make a choice: let Nia be lost to the brainwashing, or help her stay special and risk himself in the process.

After the Moment by Garret Freymann-Weyr

Maia Morland is pretty, only not pretty-pretty. She's smart. She's brave. She's also a self-proclaimed train wreck.

Leigh Hunter is smart, popular, and extremely polite. He's also completely and forever in love with Maia Morland.

Their young love starts off like a romance novel - full of hope, strength, and passion. But life is not a romance novel and theirs will never become a true romance. For when Maia needs him the most, Leigh betrays both her trust and her love.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

What if you had everything: A gorgeous boyfriend who was madly in love with you? Quirky hip parents who totally got you? A musical talent that could take you anywhere? What if your biggest problem in life was choosing which path to take? Follow your first love - music - to New York City? Or stay with your boyfriend, friends, and family?

What if one day, you went out for a drive... And in an instant everything changed? What if suddenly all the other choices were gone? Except for one - the only one that truly mattered?

What would you do?

You're going to need some tissues when you read If I Stay, trust me! Candor and After the Moment are both on my wishlist. They both sound good!

Yes, you should definitely try to get a copy of The Hate List if you can. (Also might want to grab some tissues with that one too lol)

I have been wanting to read If I Stay and now you have interested me in After the Moment as well. Oh, thank goodness I keep my TBR list on the computer and not on paper. I'd need a new notebook!
