I'm going on vacation next week and the only thing I've packed to so far are my books. Stuffed in my beach bag (ok lake bag) are my nook, The Summer I Turned Pretty, Max and Menna, and Crush: 26 Real Life Tales of First Love. I am so excited to dive into these books.
If you haven't heard about Crush yet, check out this book trailer:
Crush: 26 Real Life Tales of First Love
Edited by Andrea N. Richesin
Published by Harlequin
Readers will fall head over heels for this nostalgic and irreverent collection.
Twenty-six bestselling authors return to the teenage bedrooms, school hallways and college dorms of their youth to share passionate essays of love lost and found and lessons learned along the way. Whether heartbreaking or hilarious, their soul-baring honesty reminds us to keep reaching for true love wherever we can find it and for as long as it takes. Their intimate reflections will fascinate and move any reader who remembers her first love. (from Goodreads)
The introduction alone will have you craving to read the essays by Jacquelyn Mitchard, David Levithan, Emily Franklin and Lauren Oliver as well as the other contributing authors. I wish my vacation was starting RIGHT NOW!
