Cassidy Emmerich is determined to make this summer—the last before her boyfriend heads off to college—unforgettable. What she doesn’t count on is her boyfriend breaking up with her. Now, instead of being poolside with him, Cass is over a hundred miles away, spending the summer with her estranged father and his family at their bed-and-breakfast at the Jersey Shore and working as the newest counselor at Camp Manatee.

Bryan Lakewood is sick of nevers. You’ll never walk. You’ll never surf. You’ll never slow dance with your date at prom. One miscalculated step and Bryan’s life changed forever—now he’s paralyzed and needs to use a wheelchair. This is the first summer he’s back at his former position at Camp Manatee and ready to reclaim some of his independence, in spite of those who question if he’s up for the job.

Cass is expecting two months dealing with heartbreak.
Bryan is expecting a summer of tough adjustments.
Neither of them is expecting to fall in love.

The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

I read a book before its publication date... HALLELUJAH! This just hasn't happened in a long time so yeah, it's kind of a big deal for me, reading slumps and all. Haha! Read on for my review of this book out next next week!

In this ode to all the things we gain and lose and gain again, seventeen-year-old Penelope Marx curates her own mini-museum to deal with all the heartbreaks of love, friendship, and growing up.

Welcome to the Museum of Heartbreak.

Well, actually, to Penelope Marx’s personal museum. The one she creates after coming face to face with the devastating, lonely-making butt-kicking phenomenon known as heartbreak.

Heartbreak comes in all forms: There’s Keats, the charmingly handsome new guy who couldn't be more perfect for her. There’s possibly the worst person in the world, Cherisse, whose mission in life is to make Penelope miserable. There’s Penelope’s increasingly distant best friend Audrey. And then there’s Penelope’s other best friend, the equal-parts-infuriating-and-yet-somehow-amazing Eph, who has been all kinds of confusing lately.

But sometimes the biggest heartbreak of all is learning to let go of that wondrous time before you ever knew things could be broken.

Far from Over by April Lindner

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

I guess I'm a masochist because even though I only gave 2 stars to Love, Lucy (the book this novella is a companion of), I still got around to buy and read this novella, HOPING AND WISHING THAT I'LL LOVE IT. Why do I do this to myself?


Title: Far from Over
Author: April Lindner
Publisher: Poppy
Date of Publication: April 12, 2016

A captivating digital original companion novella to April Lindner's Love, Lucy.

Jesse Palladino is used to moving on. As a street musician backpacking through Europe, he’s never in one place for long. Which is why it’s so surprising he can’t seem to move on from Lucy, the girl he fell for in Florence. They parted ways when Lucy returned home to start college, but every crowded piazza and winding cobblestone street reminds Jesse of the time they spent together. Now staying with a friend in Naples, he can’t help wondering if it’s time to pack up and move on again. But just when his mind is made up, something—or someone—might give him a reason to stay.

See you at the #NoLoveAllowed by Kate Evangelista Book Launch!

Sunday, April 24, 2016



Join Filipino young adult novelist Kate Evangelista (@KateEvangelista) for the launch of her latest book ‘No Love Allowed’ on April 30, 2016 at 2 p.m. in National Book Store, Glorietta 1. Registration starts at 12 p.m.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Caleb desperately needs a new fake girlfriend. Either he attends a series of parties with a pretty girl on his arm to schmooze for his father's law firm, or he gets shipped off to Yale to start a future he's not ready for and isn't sure he wants. And sadly the last unattached girl in his social circle has just made the grievous mistake of falling in love with him.

Fortunately, Didi, the waitress at the Country Club — who just lost her job due to Caleb's too-public breakup — is open to new experiences (and art supplies are expensive!). It's the perfect setup for them both. Caleb has only one rule for the arrangement: Didi mustn't fall in love with him.

Model Finley needs someone to help her shed her "good girl" persona, so she'll try Eddie on for size.

New York City model Finley is fed up with hearing the same feedback at castings: she needs to take some serious action to wipe the "good girl" stamp from her resume if she wants to launch to stardom.

Enter Eddie Wells. He's shallow, predictable…and just as lost as Finley feels. Deep down, Finley is drawn to Eddie's bravado, his intensity. Except Eddie is hiding something. A big something. And when it surfaces, both loving and leaving Finley will become so much harder.
