alice-jane - The Summer of Letting Go sounds like such a wonderful read for the summer and my kind of book– contemporary and honest. I can’t wait to find a copy at the library and savor it! I love how you mentioned the friendship between Frankie and Lizette, since it’s rare to have such a strong friendship.

Alexa S. - Ah! I know you recommended this one to me already, but your review has convinced me I MUST read it. It sounds like just the type of contemporary I like – real, gritty and painfully honest. I can’t wait to snag a copy – from the library, when it’s available!

brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Ohhhh another buy it recommendation!?! Ahh, may have to add this to my list. It’s SO hard picking up serious and heavier contemps lately (you know, ones with heavy issues) just because I’ve been reading so many heavy fantasy books that when I’m coming around to contemporaries, it’s for something nice and light and fun. But a buy it rec!? Hmmm, I must add this to my shelves. *heads to GR* expect an email soon notifying you I’ve added it.

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - Okay, so I’m laughing because I came down here to comment and say almost exactly what Maggie said. 1) I wasn’t that interested in this one until your review, so that’s a success. 2) I also feel like two Frankies would annoy the crap out of me, but I trust there’s a reason for it. Maaaaaybe? I hope so. Haha!

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - You know I didn’t have much interest in reading this after seeing her at the NYCTAF, but your love of it is kind of changing my mind. I feel like two characters named Frankie might drive me crazy, but it sounds like it might be worth reading regardless 🙂

Alexa Y. - Wow! You girls have got quite an amazing selection of books. I think I’m most looking to Love Letters to the Dead and Going Rogue, which I have too!

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Corinne Demas was my first year seminar professor in college. I requested Returning to Shore on NG, but got declined. Which is fine, I more just wanted to read it because I hated her as a professor, haha.

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Lots of great looking 2014 titles! INK and Going Rogue are a couple I’m eager to read.
Enjoy!

Bookworm1858 - I have a lot of those same books to read too-they all look so intriguing!

I’m hoping to read some more adult books like Booker winner The Luminaries as well as business/leadership non-fiction to aid in my professional development. So that will make 2014 an interesting mix of YA, MG, even some NA and then adult stuff.

Congrats again on 2 years!
