I am currently sitting on the porch of my waterfront cabin, watching the sun set over Mt. Rainer. There's a slight breeze, the water is slapping up against the bulkhead, and I'm pretty darn content. I'm just sayin'.
Anywhoo, I'm on vacay, which is why I sort of why disappeared from the face of the (blogging) earth there for awhile. Sorry! However, in the mean time, I've been doing some summer reading and I'm super pumped to share some of it with you guys :). I was planning on doing another book for MMGM this week, but I just finished this one today and just felt like I needed to review it while the shock, the impact if you will, of how awesome it was was still fresh in my mind. Pretty sure that sentence was grammatically incorrect on several levels. Moving on.
This book touched my heart, taught me something new, and challenged me to look at how I as a teen can change the world. It dealt with cancer, how to live life to the fullest, and how it's never too late to do the right thing. I absolutely loved it, so let's get started with Hope Was Here.
(I've never seen so many different covers for one book! This one is the newest (:)
Summary: (From Amazon)
I loved it, you guys. It was so good. There were love stories(they made my stomach flip-flop. no joke.), anger, courage, frustration, politics, outrage(you will get angry), joy, humor, hope, and food. Lots and lots of food. I seriously read the last page, looked up at my mom and was like, "Mom...that book was incredible. Maybe the best I've ever read."
So please read it, and check out Joan Bauer's other books, such as Rules of the Road, which I also read recently. If you would like to see me review Rules of The Road, leave a comment below!
I am currently reading The Green Ember by S.D. Smith. Check out the cover on the sidebar to your right--it is AMAZING!
What are your summer reading goals and/or your favorite summer read??
This post was short but sweet, and that's what Hope Was Here is, too!
