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!

I thought I'd left Blackwater, Texas behind for good. I didn't belong in the small town, but my dad wouldn't listen. He dragged me back home in his beat-up truck and dropped a bomb along the way: Chase Matthews was moving in with us. He was the golden boy of my high school, my former best friend, and the last person I wanted sleeping across the hall. His presence was too great a reminder of the ghosts I was trying to forget.
I didn't ask for a hero. I don't want to be saved.
To me, Lilah Calloway meant late nights sneakin'; out, moonlit hair, and sparklers in July. She was my best friend until the day she left and I'd assumed Blackwater had seen the last of her. Then, like a tempest, she rolled back into town for the final half of senior year. The chopped hair and dark devil-may-care attitude warned most people away, but I knew if I fought hard enough, I could find the lost girl.
I didn't want to be her hero. Some girls don't need to be saved.
I’m kinda embarrassed to admit I’ve not yet read Chasing Spring. I love Rachel’s books. She’s one of my go-to authors and, yet, here’s a book published two years ago that I’ve not picked up. I honestly can’t even tell you why. Maybe because it’s young adult and I’ve only known her to write new adult and adult? Maybe? I mean, the blurb sounds great. It’s right up my alley, yet here we are.
Have you read Chasing Spring?
What’d you think?
TBR Thursday was inspired by the On My Shelf posts by Teresa @ Readers Live a Thousand Lives.
