Review-cipes: If I Stay, The Sky is Everywhere, Sean Griswold's Head

Well dear readers, it has been far too long. But between the new baby (I'm a MOM! It's craaazy! He's 200% adorable and also does not sleep) and editing my latest MS, I just haven't been able to devote my time to the blog. However, with FARLIGHT about to launch into the world, I hope to be able to dedicate more time to it in the very near future.

Needless to say, it's high time I updated you all on some of my favorite recent reads!

(actually I read most of these during my book-a-day stint back in February when my little one wouldn't sleep unless I was walking him up and down the hall in a baby carrier. But that is another story.)

So, here come my mini review-cipes, Contemporary Edition.

    aka ... if you liked TFIOS ... read these!

If I Stay -- by Gayle Foreman

*Yes you must read this book before you see the movie.
  ... Hurry.*


A gifted cellist
Life, love, unravelling
A chance to stay.

She survived. But what did she lose? And will she stay?

If you Love If: The Fault in our Stars - John Green, The Sky is Everywhere - Jandy Nelson, Pivot Point - Kasie West

The Sky is Everywhere -- by Jandy Nelson

Piece together:

The ache of a little sister, left behind
Music, roses, streets littered with poetry
Love: old and new and everything inbetween.

When Lennie's sister died suddenly, she realized she'd always been the shadow. Now, she must figure out how to move on, alone.

Sean Griswold's Head -- Lindsay Leavitt


Girl more-than-a-little pissed at the fam
Guy-crazy BFF
Focus objects, crushes, bikes, betrayal

Guy she's always known. But not really. That she's stalking him? That's her guidance counselor's fault. Need a focus object? Look no further than Sean Griswold's Head.
