Okay, I know that we all know that I absolutely adore Grady Hendrix’s writing. But I got an advanced copy of the new paperback release of We Sold Our Souls and it was So Good that I just have to talk about it a bit.
I picked up this book ages ago; before I got back into my YA groove. It’s an adult romance book (not a bodice ripper, but still romance), and it’s about fashion.
Taking place through numerous points of view (not just the views of nine women), this book revolves around the way those nine women’s lives are affected by one dress. It also starts and ends with the pattern maker of the dress, and has a lovely full circle feeling.
It’s a beautiful story about love, in more than one way; there are many love and loss stories within its pages. There are cheating husbands, wives, and fresh starts. It really has it all, and that made me love it.
I had been putting off reading this book for ages, but everyone suggested I bring it with me on my road trip, and I’m so glad they did. It’s a fantastic read; so much fun and love in it. I highly recommend it.
I read Speak as a high school freshman. It’s a painful and powerful story, that has stuck with me for over ten years. Anderson is amazing, and while Speak can be difficult to read, it’s necessary. When I saw the graphic novel on the shelf at Barnes and Noble, I knew that it had to come home with me.
I bought this book because there was a giant advertisement with Thomas Lennon and his beautiful dog playing in target while I was in the book section. After taking a glance at it’s inside cover and realizing that it was a middle grade book written specifically for me, I figured I needed to buy it. Only on the way home did I realize that there was a review of it from Weird Al Yankovich on the back, which further solidified my feelings.
This was another cover buy, but look at that! Can you really blame me? This book is gorgeous inside and out, and the story is incredible.
I was originally drawn to this book by its bright cover, but when I checked out the inside flap and learned that it was actually about reliving the same day over and over again, I was hooked.
I loved The Hate U Give because of what it taught me. It showed me a perspective that I have never experienced, and I’m so grateful to Angie Thomas for that. When I finally got around to reading it, On The Come Up had already been announced, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on that as well.
