TBR Thursday [54]

TBR Thursday

I’ve been horribly lax with my TBR Thursday posts and I’m trying to get back on track. It pairs nicely with my TBR Jar and my Tackle My TBR Challenge, no?

I created TBR Thursday to give me an opportunity to spotlight a title from my TBR and get feedback from other bloggers/readers. Have you read the book? Should I read it? I have a TBR a mile long and I know I’ll never get to all of them. Sometimes I need some feedback that doesn’t come from Goodreads on whether a book is worth it. Who better to tell me than you guys? Plus, more often than not, it seems like everyone is reading the same books at the same time, so older titles fall off the radar. TBR Thursday gives me a chance to talk about some of those.

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 if you want to use mine.) Share your links in the comments and I’ll swing by and visit!

Kissing Max Holden was a terrible idea...
Kissing Max Holden was a terrible idea...

After his father has a life-altering stroke, Max Holden isn't himself. As his long-time friend, Jillian Eldridge only wants to help him, but she doesn't know how. When Max climbs through her window one night, Jill knows that she shouldn't let him kiss her. But she can't resist, and when they're caught in the act by her dad, Jill swears it'll never happen again. Because kissing Max Holden is a terrible idea.

With a new baby sibling on the way, her parents fighting all the time, and her dream of culinary school up in the air, Jill starts spending more and more time with Max. And even though her father disapproves and Max still has a girlfriend, not kissing Max is easier said than done. Will Jill follow her heart and allow their friendship to blossom into something more, or will she listen to her head and stop kissing Max Holden once and for all?

Kissing Max Holden is one of those books I saw being promo’d well before release and decided to pre-order because I just had to read it. Well, here we are six months after release and I’ve still not picked it up. This happens way too frequently. It still sounds really good, but I’ve seen several reviews talking about how angsty it is, which makes me a little weary. I’m sure I’ll still read it at some point though…
