Nailed It: Thankful for Family

With Thanksgiving Day so so close (we can’t believe it), we’ve decided to change things up once again for NAILED IT and focus on books with great family influences. Sometimes books in YA tend to go heavy on romance and friendships and forget that there are parents at home, but we have always noted to […]

"Time" is now bendy... - Tamara Ireland Stone - […] “It’s been really hard for me to stop thinking about the Time Between Us series. It was one of those unexpected reading experiences for me this year, and I can’t wait to read it again. (How many books can you say that about?). If you are on the prowl for a well-rounded story… be sure to check out these two books.” — Rather Be Reading […]

Alexa Y. - I am LOVING the palettes, as usual ladies! These colors are NICE. And I’m so glad you liked that series E, because it’s one of my favorites. And M, I can’t wait to read Ink is Thicker than Water! Hmm, as for books with family in them, I think most Sarah Dessen books do have that aspect. But my favorite example is always Second Chance Summer 🙂

Bookworm1858 - I agree that the pink would have seemed more summery than the addition of blue. I love that you both talked about family in your descriptions-that tends to be important to me in a book and I’m pleased that both of these are on my to-read list.

Nicole - Love both of these palettes, but especially the first! I still need to read both of these books though! I know, I know. *bows head in shame*. Wonderful post ladies!

Meg - Love both of these color palettes, and it’s always so refreshing to find supportive parents present in YA! I’m really liking the sound of both books… off to add to my wishlist!

Tara - You have inspired me to start reading adult fiction again 🙂 I need to spice up my reading list and you always review such great books that I can’t help but not add them to my TBR list.

Louisa - This looks awesome! There really is something special about small town settings.

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - One of the things I love about blogging is getting introduced to titles i might never have found on my own. This sounds really cute!

Mary @ My Sisters Bookshelf - This one sounds like too much of a squirmed for me (sometimes I thrive on the drama, sometimes it just stresses me out!) but I’m pretty sure my sister would love it so I’ll pass along a rec! She kinda lives for stories set in small towns – perhaps bc we are confirmed city girls?!

Side note: thanks for checking out our Robin Benway feature! I’m glad you liked it. I started a fan but now I’m a full on fangirl of hers! For our playlist today she sent me the HTML code and I just plugged it in – my grandmother (a frequent reader, obvs) wanted to know when I’d gotten so good at computers!

Blogging is so fun sometimes 🙂
