No need to be blue! It may not be summer yet, but summer's coming soon! 
Starting @andimjulie's new one today, and although I am only 40 pages in, I can tell it's going to be something special.

Currently reading The Hidden Memory of Objects! After Megan's brother died, she turns to the things he left behind and finds that she can see memories attached to them. Believe me...I'm not even capable of describing that properly. It's not cheesy at all...it's super mysterious actually. 
Coupled with the fact that my bae Abraham Lincoln appears in this book (through Ford's Theater as Megan's mom works there), I'm in love. (I have a serious obsession with Lincoln.) #books #bookstagram #booksinthewild #booksofinstagram #bookish #bookstagramfeature #bookgeek #booknerd #bookworm #booklove #booklover #ya #yalit #youngadult #youngadultbooks #thehiddenmemoryofobjects #daniellemagesamato

Currently reading A Psalm for Lost Girls. Tess was a normal teenager until she started hearing mysterious voices...voices that seemed to actually save people. After a kidnapping though, she suddenly passes away. Then the kidnapped girl comes back found by a shrine for Tess. Now they want to make Tess a saint. 
Told through primarily Callie's voice (Tess's sister), this book is so interesting so far. I also like that we still get to hear from Tess even though she is dead from the beginning of the book.

And on to the next book I go! I ended up loving The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley btw, and I still think you should read any and all Shaun David Hutchinson!

I bought this one (which is still a rarity), and I'm really looking forward to it! The plot intrigues me (and I'm hoping is lighter than my other recent reads), and the cover is 😍😍😍. #queensofgeek #jenwilde #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstagramfeature #bookishfeatures #bookish #booksinthewild #bookworm #bookgeek #booklove #booklover #booknerd #bookaddict #ya #yalit #youngadultbooks #youngadult

I've become such a Shaun David Hutchinson fangirl. I'm basically reading all of his books in reverse publication order. Currently reading this one, and I'm fascinated. If you've never read a single one of his books, please do. We Are the Ants is my favorite of his so far.

Good Saturday Morning! I started read Letters to the Lost last night, and I'm absolutely loving it. Declan finds a letter left on a grave and reads it out of curiosity. Then he does the unthinkable--he adds on to it. It then becomes a dialogue between the two. However, it's not just told in letters. We get to see into the separate lives of Declan and Juliet. 
Looking forward to reading more today!

This may look like it's warm, but I ate custard outside when it was 50Β° F, wearing a winter coat. 
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life was so so so good. It was absolutely beautiful. Definitely a must-read.

It is #mentalhealthmonth which is a month very near to my heart. I have depression and anxiety with panic attacks. I'm in recovery from atypical anorexia and self-injury. I've survived two suicide attempts. 
My mental health is sometimes a real battle. When I'm not on here as much, sometimes, it's because my mental health is taken a downturn. 
One of my biggest comforts in recent years have been books that deal with these subjects. For me, the books that consistently get it right because they care deeply about their readership are YA books. 
The first one I ever read was It's Kind of a Funny Story. It was the first time I ever read anything where I felt understood. Since then, I've read anything relating to mental health in fiction. A lot is done poorly, to be honest. But these here, these are all gems. 
If you don't know what it's like to suffer from a mental illness, please read one of these. And then read some nonfiction accounts too. Education is key to breaking the stigma associated with mental illness.

This Easter Sunday, I am reading Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson. I've been trying to read outside of my own experiences more this year, and when I saw this one at the library and saw the reviews, I decided to give it a try. I'm 100 pages in, and I love it so far! 
Jade lives in Portland, Oregon. Her mom works as a caretaker, and her uncle lives with them in a poor neighborhood. Jade goes to a private school on scholarship, and prior to this year, she hasn't had a lot of friends at this school. 
I'm loving the story so far, and I love that I'm reading a story for once about someone who lives in poverty BUT doesn't live in New York City. (For some reason, it seems like every book with that situation is set in NYC unless they are rural poor.) I'm really looking forward to reading more in just a few more minutes. Check it out!

I rarely start to gush about books before I finish them. But this one is different. I'm a little over halfway through, and Shaun David Hutchinson's We Are the Ants is something else. It's heartbreaking and honest. It's full of lines that make me say: "yes. This. This." Henry is abducted by sluggers--what he calls the aliens. But he never stays long. Just long enough to know that the world is going to end, and he has the power to stop it. An honest look at living after a loved one died by suicide, this book is sensitive about the subject, and the author understands it at a different level. Furthermore, while there are some real jerks in this book, not every adult is a jerk. (I hate YA books where every adult is a jerk too.) Seriously, this has been such a good read so far, and I'm eager to finish it.

Sorry I've been gone so long. It's been a crazy season. I'm on vacation this week, and I bought The Heartbeats of Wing Jones while in Nashville. This book is a lovely tale, taking place over the course of 1995-96 of what can happen when one mistake turns deadly--both tragedy and triumph. This book also features diverse characters. Truly well written. I haven't seen much hype about this one (although it's been a while since I've been logged into this account), but it's so good! Makes me want to try to start running again!

Jeff Zentner has created an absolutely breath-taking sophomore novel. It is one that will make you feel intensely. It is one that will make you question your own actions and whether or not you are as safe as you feel you are while driving. It is one that will make you think about the fragility of life and about the memories that you would leave behind. Perhaps, and I hope it does, it will make you think how to craft the best story you can for your own life.

I know I may sound like a broken record when I harp on @jeffzentner on here, but not since Ned Vizzini has any author written works that have had such an impact on my life. I feel that it is highly appropriate that I literally found a four leaf clover while rereading parts of the ARC back in September--for more than one reason. Great symbolism but also truly lucky to have this author in my life. (P.S. Jeff, the published book will be in my hands this month--although I think you may know that already from Savannah.) #jeffzentner #books #bookstagrammer #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookstragramfeature #bookish #booklove #booknerd #bookgeek #bookworm #bookaddict #booklover #ya #yalit #youngadultbooks #reading #goodbyedays #fourleafclover

Books have power to help save lives. 
On March 3, 2016, I was completely devastated. I felt on that day so unwanted that I began to seriously consider yet again about ending my own life. That day, however, I said no. I said, "this is not going to be my story." A few days later, I started the process of trying to get help. 
Exactly a month later, I read The Serpent King. I cried. If you have read the book, while I cried because of THE event, I cried more because of Dill. I cried because he did something in that book that was like me and yet he made the same decision. A little bit later the quotation: "and if you're going to live, you might as well do painful, brave, and beautiful things" came up. Ensue more crying. 
For the last 11 months, this book has been a companion. While I admit that I've only read it twice, the story hasn't left me as the quotation goes rolling through my head on every single hard day I have. That art done for me by a friend hangs in my bedroom. 
I am really proud to say that today marks 1 year since my last serious suicidal thought. I didn't think I'd ever get to this point again. But I have. I thanked a lot of people on my personal page for their help, but this book....man this book. I can honestly say that this book changed my life. This book is a HUGE part of the reason why I am still here and why I'm doing well. I am so grateful for this book and for @jeffzentner.

I am freaking out right now because I somehow got an ARC of one of my most anticipated reads of 2017! I'm so excited to start The Upside of Unrequited by @beckyalbertalli ! Loved her first book.

Started A Tragic Kind of Wonderful today. It's the story of Mel who is living with bipolar disorder. There was a life altering event when she was in 8th grade and again in high school. I have to find out exactly what happened, but I'm enjoying the read so far!

Stopped at a place that serves raw cookie dough before @skippingstones' signing at @andersonsbookshop tonight! I asked for a small. This is apparently a small. I didn't finish even half of this! I did, however, finish The Last of August. While I didn't love it as much as the first, I found it to be an enjoyable read! 
Also--major congrats to Brittany Cavallaro for making the NYT Best Seller's List!

Sometimes, you take a book title literally and take the picture on an American street and risk your life for the 'gram. I got this book from my mom for Valentine's Day, and I'm looking forward to starting it soon!
