The blogging from A to Z Challenge is underway! Yesterday I hit it hard with letter A and Aces Up by Lauren Barnholdt, a YA book about a teen who gets involved in a secret poker ring.
Today is the letter B and because I couldn’t choose just one, I chose just four books for you:
Beach Blonds by Katherine Applegate (of recent The One and Only Ivan fame). Heres what Goodreads says about it:
Summer Smith is in for the best summer of her life. Between the cold weather and her boyfriendless existence in Minnesota, Summer is ready for sun, sand, and boys in the Florida Keys. And by the end of the first day, she has more than enough to keep her busy: Adam, the senator’s son, has looks, power, and all the money in the world. Diver, the mystery man, is mellow, intriguing, and definitely unique. And Seth, the perfect guy…only he has a girlfriend. But with new friends, cute guys, and miles of hot white sand, Summer’s in for more trouble than she thinks….
I’m thinking this will be one of my beach reads this summer!
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian, besties whom I met last fall when they visited Towne Book Center & Cafe (my place of employment)!
Bitterblue by Kristen Cashore, part of the Graceling Realm; hot hot hot!!
and Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia, part of the Beautiful Creatures series, and now a major motion picture.
Well, what do you think? Good reading there isn’t it?
C you next time; get it? C…. har har har (sorry I need more coffee)
