Attention, Attention! Amy Spalding & INK

One of my RBR goals before the end of the year was to get another ATTENTION, ATTENTION post in. I’m so glad I made this a priority because it gave me a chance to 1) read one of the books that Magan really enjoyed last year 2) talk to Amy Spalding, who is one of my absolute […]

Alexa S. - Ah! I really enjoyed Ink is Thicker Than Water too. It’s such a great contemporary, and I thought Kellie was a great young lady to read about. So thrilled you were able to finally read it! And I enjoyed your interview with Amy. Can’t wait for her next one!

ashley - I have not read any of Amy’s books yet. But they are on my TBR!

Jennie - This cover is stunning! I hadn’t heard about this book until now, but it will be going on my TBR list for sure.

November 13, 2014 - 8:52 pm

Jen - I’d love to start reading her–INK looks great.

AR - I just finished The Reece Malcolm List and I loooved it. Sadly, my local libraries don’t have Ink is Thicker Than Water, and right now I can’t afford to buy it. But I WILL ask for it for Xmas, if nothing else.

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - You seriously have the best posts around. I love this! I was also a fan of Amy’s debut and really, really enjoyed it. I’m having such fond memories thinking back 🙂 I was excited for Ink but never got round to it when it released. Now? I’m *totally* sold (all over again). Ink is going on my Christmas wish list and if Santa doesn’t bring it, I’ll be gifting it to myself 🙂 Lovely interview!

Ashley - I haven’t read any of her books yet, but I’ve seen a lot of buzz surrounding her book that comes out in the spring, Kissing Ted Callahan. Also, I’ve seen her talking to authors I follow (and love) on twitter, so I’ve been meaning to check out her books.

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - This is one of my most-anticipated books for the fall and I’m reading it now and I’m just not into it. I’m 50ish pages in and I just feel like I’m reading more of a manuscript than a finished book. I’m glad you really enjoyed it and I’m hoping as I read more the story kind of solidifies (I feel like it’s a bit all over the place). I do really like Kellie’s family and, like you, I love a good with a great family.

November 22, 2013 - 6:01 pm

Alexa Y. - I’m a sucker for contemporary books that feature family prominently, and it’s even cooler that friends and romance is thrown into this story as well. I’m really looking forward to reading this one!

November 22, 2013 - 12:42 am

Bookworm1858 - I’m so looking forward to reading this (I’m part of a blog tour in early December so it will be soon). The family plot is already most interesting to me as I tend to seek out strong family representations in YA and am not always successful.

November 20, 2013 - 5:04 pm

Jen - Magan! I’m so happy to see that you enjoyed this one because it’s in my review pile. I recall that Spalding is great with the creation of family dynamics in stories, but I’m sad to hear that the romance aspect is turned down a few notches because of it. However, I’m still excited for it! Lovely review 🙂

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 🙂

November 19, 2013 - 7:32 pm

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.

November 19, 2013 - 2:02 pm

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!

November 19, 2013 - 9:34 am

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!
