Must Read

Monday Musts [23]I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: February 3, 2015
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Add it: Goodreads

If Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby on her hip, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing separating Skylar from art school is three months of summer…until Skylar’s mother loses her job, and Skylar realizes her dreams may be slipping out of reach.

Josh had a different escape route: the Marines. But after losing his leg in Afghanistan, he returns home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be.

What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise—a quirky motel off California’s Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into an unexpected friendship and, soon, something deeper.

Compelling and ultimately hopeful, this is a powerful examination of love, loss, and resilience.

I didn’t have anything I would consider to be a must read last week, so I’m deciding to highlight an older title that I truly believe everyone should read. It’s one of my all time favorite books. If you read YA contemporary and you’ve not yet read it, you need to do something about that soon.

I love this song so very much.

I wanna be that song that gets you high
Makes you dance, makes you fall
That melody rewinds years
Once disappear, makes time stall
Wanna be those words that fill you up
Pull your windows down and keeps you young
Makes you believe you’re right where you belong
I wanna be that song

Is it time for the Olympics yet? Because after watching Simone Biles go beast mode right here makes me want to watch so badly. You know what else makes me want to watch the Olympics? This right here… The US Mens Gymnastic team.

      Oh I can’t wait for you to read I’ll Meet You There. Major heart eyes for everything about that book. <3 The men's team is pretty easy on the eyes, no? Haha.

      I’ll Meet You There still gives me feels when I think about it. I don’t know if you did the preorder and got the Valentine’s Day letter or not, but OMG. It was so much perfection I almost can’t handle it. I feel like I love the idea of the Summer Olympics, but when it comes down to it, I don’t watch nearly as much of it as I think I’m going to. Maybe this year will be different!

      OMG yes. It’s one of my all time favorite YA contemps. Feels for freaking days. The eye candy was pretty spectacular, no? 🙂
