For me months go by and every time I see a new blog post or run into something about a book I just hit up Goodreads or B&N.com and add it to my wishlist. Problem is, now that school has started finding time for leisure reading is tough! Still, I figured I'd share with you two of the books at the top of my TBR pile.
What are yours? I'd love some more to add to my collection. You know help the addiction grow...
“One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time.”
Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy,
affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old
Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening,
Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall
fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then
in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly
faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her?
Or is it time she saved herself?
A dreamy summer read, full of characters who stay with you long after the story is over.
Semi-Charmed Life. Lately I'm all about NYC so reading about a blogger swept up into the NYC socialite life, well, that sounds promising. Okay, yeah, I also like the cover. (Yes, I'm one of those people)
In Nora Zelevansky’s
hilarious debut, Semi-Charmed Life, an Upper West Side naïf, Beatrice
Bernstein, gets swept up in the seemingly magical life of socialite
Veruca Pfeffernoose, while ghost writing her blog. Veruca’s glitteringly
opulent world soon seduces Beatrice away from her own insular, arty
family with a promise of fancy parties, travel outside Manhattan (for
once) and one desperately cute guy. But when her new glitzy lifestyle
starts to take on dark undertones, Beatrice has to decide who she
is—once and for all. With her own magical touch, Zelevansky deftly
explores the world of rarified Manhattan in this sparkling modern fairy
tale of first love, finding one’s voice and growing up.
