Weekly Reviews and Recommendations: Week 29 Part 2

Hello, everyone! I'm posting this a few days early so I can post my Texas Teen Book Fest article Sunday. This has been an exciting week! I'm headed off to Texas Teen Book Fest tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to getting to meet authors and other blogger. I'm not, however, looking forward to the early wake up to drive to Austin. This is only my second book festival, so it still feels all new and exciting. If you have any questions you want tomorrow, Tweet me your questions (@readwriteandme) and I'll try to get them answered for you. I'll be Tweeting as the day goes on (as much as my phone battery will allow) and posting some Instagram photos (look below for more info on that). For now, enjoy my review of Grit which was a phenomenal book. 

Grit by Gillian French (294 pages)
Overview: At the heart of this story lies the message: Every label isn't true, in fact, they usually aren't. Darcy knows this better than most people. Ever since that one night soph…

Weekly Reviews and Recommendations: Week 29 Part 1

Hello, everyone! First off, the Monday teaser pictures completely slipped my mind, so I forgot to post that. Sorry about that. It's been a bit crazy lately. So, anyway, the two books of the week are Grit by Gillian French and Buzz Kill by Beth Fantaskey. Also, this weekend I'll be going to Texas Teen Book Festival, so make sure you follow us on Twitter and Instagram (more info below) to get updates throughout the day before the article comes. Also linked below is what's coming up for this new month. I'm super excited about all of the great events and reviews and new books coming! These two books jumped from the featured YA shelf and into my book bag. Even though I was trying to limit my book hall as the summer season ended, I couldn't pass these up, first because of the covers and then because of summaries. Luckily, both lived up to my self created hype. Grit is definitely one of my favorite new releases of 2017 and perhaps YA books in general. The running thread …

Weekly Reviews and Recommendations: Week 28 (Part 2)

Hello, everyone! This week I have an awesome book to share with all of you! I found The Sun Is Also A Star to be an great and uniquely written read. If you missed our other numerous posts recently or the first part of this week's reviews, you can find the links below. Also, I've linked some other similar books and books I've loved below. 

The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon (347 pages)
Overview: One day really can change everything, and Yoon proves that in her novel. Though a set of random circumstances, Daniel and Natasha wind up meeting in New York City on the day that happens to be Natasha's last in the city. They both recognize their instant connection, but practical Natasha shies away from it while poetic Daniel tries to make her see that their relationship is worth fighting for. As they both face the biggest crossroads of their life, they have one day, and each other, to try to sort it all out before it's too late. Overall: 5
