Recent Favorite Reads – Recommendations

I’ve recently read some amazing books and I wanted to share them with you!

The Upside of Unrequited – Becky Albertalli

Molly has had several crushes in her life time but she never does anything about them. She crushes on them hard and alone. She’s afraid of rejection, so she doesn’t put herself out there. Molly gets a job and starts to form another crush on her coworker Reid, the geeky cute guy. Throughout Molly learns how to open up to people and to trust them. I loved it! This is such a relatable read and makes you fall in love with the novel and Molly!

Whatever Life Throws At You – Julie Cross

Annie Lucas’s life is about to be turned upside down when her dad gets a job coaching the pitchers for the Kansas City Royals. They move to Missouri which Annie finds especially cold. Annie also starts to attend an all girls school, which means no boys. Annie has her own dreams which involve placing first at every track meet, and also one starring the hot new pitcher for the Royals.

Jason Brody is completely off-limits. Her dad would kill them both several times. Not to mention the fact the Brody has some what of a notorious past. He dates super models, not smart mouth high school girls. The last thing either should be doing is taking it to the next level.

But you know what they say about baseball, it isn’t just a game, its life, and it can break your heart.

You can check out my thoughts on my Review.

Under Rose-Tainted Skies – Louise Gornall

Norah has accepted that she will need to stay within her four walls, her mental illness keeps her away from doing things that normal people her age do. When Luke moves in next door, he starts to awaken some of the normal-ness in her life. This was such a heart breaking but fun story about how to start to over come a mental illness.

The One Memory of Flora Banks – Emily Barr

Flora Banks can only remember one memory and goes to a different country to try and find the person who she associates her one memory with.

This is a novel that you won’t want to put down once you’ve started it.

Thanks for stopping by, Emily.
