Friday Reads, Dessen

Getting around to reading more Dessen. Today’s pick is Someone Like You.

Halley has always followed in the wake of her best friend, Scarlett. But when Scarlett learns that her boyfriend has been killed in a motorcycle accident, and that she’s carrying his baby, she was devastated. For the first time ever, Scarlett really needs Halley. Their friendship may bend under the weight, but it’ll never break–because a true friendship is a promise you keep forever.


Have you read it? Are you a Dessen fan? What should I look for next?

Teaser Tuesday, Cress


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
    •Open to a random page
    • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
    • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (& make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
    • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

“Her satellite made one full orbit around planet Earth every sixteen hours.”

“Be honest. Do I look like a famous wanted criminal right now?”

So I’m on book three of the Lunar Chronicles and thus far it might be my favorite. I am getting caught up finally for the release of book four this winter.

Have you read these before? Are they a recommended read?

Tomorrow is my best friend’s birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUSY! I will be celebrating today over our favorite meal, super nachos.

Sorry for the lack of a real update. More quality posts to come in September.Until next time…
