TBR Thursday [17]

Posted May 26, 2016 by Kim in TBR Thursday / 2 Comments

Happy Thursday! You know what that means… time for a new TBR Thursday!

My feature was totally influenced by Teresa @ Readers Live a Thousand Lives and her On My Shelf posts. I love love love the idea of spotlighting a title from my shelf (or, you know, my eReader) and seeing what you think about it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? Sometimes it seems like everyone is reading the same books at the same time and older titles have a way of just fading from the radar. I love this way of featuring an older title and, of course, getting a chance to talk about it with other bloggers and readers. And I want to force myself to do it regularly, hence the TBR Thursday title.

If you’d like to join in on the fun, I’ve created a banner you can use – or you can always make your own! (Right click and save as to grab the image for yourself.) Share your links in the comments and I’ll swing by and visit!


Now, let’s talk about this week’s pick, shall we?


TBR Thursday [17]Puddle Jumping Series: Puddle Jumping #1
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: July 1, 2014
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

When it comes to love there’s no such thing as conventional.

Everyone thinks Colton Neely is special.

Lilly Evans just thinks he’s fascinating.

Once friends when they were younger, their bond is cut short due to her accident prone nature and they go their separate ways. Years later, they meet again and Lilly learns that there is something special about the boy she once knew, but she has no idea what it all means. And she’s not sure if she’s ready to find out.

When he walks through the corridor of her school the first day of her senior year, she knows that it’s time to get to know the real Colton Neely. The more she learns, the deeper she falls.

Their friendship grows into love, even as Colton does not express it in words. But one decision threatens to break down the world that Lilly has tried so hard to integrate into and she must figure out if the relationship can survive if they are apart.

I bought this book a few months ago after seeing it mentioned by some bloggers (and it might’ve been on sale at the time, too) but, as it goes, I didn’t get around to reading it. I honestly forgot all about it in my ridiculously large TBR list. Until, that is, an author favorite mentioned another book by this author in her Facebook group. I went to look it up because I didn’t recognize the author’s name. Then I realized I actually already own one of her books and the Goodreads reviews RAVE about it. I’m a little hesitant to believe those without some folks I trust backing it up.

Sooooo… what say you?

  1. I like the way it sounds…and I love the cover. I hope you read it…and then share your thoughts so we can decide if we want to read it…lol.

    My book today was similarly purchased…I saw a mention and thought it sounded good. And I’ve actually read another book by the author and enjoyed it. So it sounds like a win, right? What do you think?
