Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Oh yayyyy! I’m so happy to read such a wonderful review. I’ve been anticipating this one but I hadn’t read much about it yet. It sounds just lovely. Can’t wait to pick it up.

Alexa S. - So, I take it this is going to have to be one that I check out? Alright then. But seriously, when you write a review like this, I find it VERY hard to resist a book! The Things You Kiss Goodbye sounds like it read way better than I thought it would. Interesting characters PLUS I love that there’s a lot of self-realization and growth!

Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit - I’ve got an ARC of this one, really must get to it. I’m glad it was so focused on family, and I like that it doesn’t sound like a love triangle, just a realistic relationship. But does every person’s name have to begin with a B? =)

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve been interested in this one. I just love the cover (It makes me think of Jennifer E. Smith’s books, in a way), and the summary definitely grabs me.

I’m glad to hear that you liked this.
