Happy Monday, friends! I’m reading a bunch of YA reading this month to make myself more familiar with some of the contemporary titles that seem to be flooding into the store lately. Have you read any of these? What did you think?
Books I Just Finished
Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon
This book was super cute. I love Nicola Yoon’s writing style and characters, and it was fun to see her add a bit of a fantastical spin on this story. I was a little surprised at how quickly the main character changed her mind about romance as soon as a cute boy entered the picture. It seemed a bit rushed to me, but the whole book felt very fast paced, so it suited the narrative pacing.

You Say It First by Katie Cotugno
Meg has her entire life set up perfectly: her boyfriend Mason is sweet and supportive, she and her best friend Emily plan to head to Cornell together in the fall, and she even finds time to clock shifts phonebanking at a voter registration call center in her Philadelphia suburb.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date.
