Giving Thanks: Which books are you most thankful for receiving from other bloggers, friends, family members, or publishers?
The first book that comes to mind is Anna and the French Kiss. I had heard nothing about this book until I stumbled upon a review of it at yacrush.com, my favorite book blog. This was long before Maggie and I decided to start our own. I love YA, but I had recently been doing most of my reading by authors I already knew, and requesting books from my library online, so I hadn’t been in to browse (it’s kind of hard to manage with two kids under 4 to get in & out in an acceptable amount of time with no one crying, including myself—love that drivethru!). So, thanks, Tee, for all the great recommendations!
1. Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot – I wasn’t given these books but I was strongly persuaded by Dixie and Tee over @ YA Crush to check these out. If I wouldn’t have listened I would never have known how AWESOME Michael is. . .SIGH. This alone makes them BFFs. 😛
2. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson – Again this is Dixie. . .obviously she’s got great book tastes or we wouldn’t be blogging together but this book was beyond great.
