Avalon High & What Happened to Goodbye

So now I've had a little young adult breather in terms of my reading for the year. I read Avalon High by Meg Cabot and What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen.

Avalon High is sort-of a retelling of the King Arthur, Lancelot & Guinevere story. It centers around this girl named Elaine who starts at a new school only to realize that something seems weird & that there are a lot of similarities to the old King Arthur story. It wasn't my absolute favorite book, but I do like retellings, so it was interesting on that front. It was also a really quick read, which is why I call these breathers. They just don't take me any time really to read & there's not much complicated thoughts going on while I read them.

What Happened to Goodbye is about a girl, McLean, who moves around frequently with her dad. His job basically has him go into restaurants that aren't doing well and he helps them get back on their feet - or sometimes says that can't be done and has to close them down altogether. Her parents got a divorce & there's some complication with her & her mom. But she's shown up in a town in the beginning where she finally finds herself wanting to stick around. Again, it was good, not great. Quick, easy read. I actually realized that the ebook was going to expire from my library in like 3 days, so I read it really quickly before it expired.

So I find myself wanting a little more depth in my next reads. I'm trying to decide on something more like a Beth Moore or Andrew Murray book. When I decide & finish one, I'll let you know!
