"If you spend all your time thinking about how someone is going to one-up you, you can't put your best foot forward."
- Coming Up For Air by Miranda Kenneally

Here's a couple books that I brought back in August. Can‘t wait to read them all.

I was able to read an e-ARC of this book via Netgalley thanks to the publisher, and I really enjoyed it! It was a great summer (quick) read, although I was weirded out a bit by repeated references to the main character's "urges." ? I was able to relate to this book, though, because I used to be in the same world of competitive swimming.

Overall, I am glad I read a Miranda Kenneally book, finally!

This is what our reviewer had to say about #ComingUpforAir by @mirandakenneally "This series has come a long way...the plot has become increasingly more elaborate, relatable and realistic. COMING UP FOR AIR is...one of the best novels by Kenneally."

I dove into this book not knowing if I would enjoy it, and I loved EVERYTHING. From the writing, the friendships, the characters, the humor, the plot, the ending, the romance and all that FEELS…. I LOVED IT ALL. This book is just so huggable – it‘s light, funny, and so stinking cute.

Pulled an all nighter reading this one! This is such a great series for teens, especially girls, that explores family, faith, friendships and sexuality. I think this is the last book in the Hundred Oaks series. If so, it ended on a high note with Maggie & Levi's friends to more romance. #summerreading @Sourcebooks

MidnightBookGirl I have loved all of Kenneally's books, but this is definitely one of my favorites (right up there with Things I Can't Forget). 3y
KarenA @MidnightBookGirl It was one of my favorites of the series too. The only one I haven't read yet is Breathe Annie Breathe. 3y

I only meant to start this book last night, but ended up reading it all the way through! This is the last of the series, and Kenneally is really going out on top with this. I loved Maggie & Levi!! #alaac17

Really enjoyed this YA read about swimming, a friendship turned to love, and female frenemies. Part of a set of companion books that tackle a lot of issues that other YAs shy away from.
Have you read any of these? You can check out my full review on the blog!

Most importantly: I am jealous of a town-wide pajama party.

(Light spoilers, but it's romance, these are the tropes)
This is maybe the first YA I've read that's both friends-to-lovers AND sex-to-feelings?

An interesting read after AMERICAN HOOKUP, since Maggie's decision is motivated in large part by the belief that EVERYONE IN COLLEGE HOOKS UP.

I also always appreciate that Kenneally's teen athletes spend ALL THEIR TIME sportsing and eating.

brownekr Oh, also: for a book about a girl's sexual initiation (by a more experienced male friend), I appreciated that it was pretty free of gross virginity-culture stuff about him being ~~~her first~~~ and ~~~her only.~~~ 3y

Love love love. This might be my favorite Kenneally book yet. (It's giving Stealing Parker and Things I Can't Forget a run for their money). If you have read one of her books I 100% recommend you do so. ❤️

MidnightBookGirl @MyNamesParadise Pages is just grumpy by nature. She's like a disgruntled old man trapped in the body of a super cute morkie. 3y
MyNamesParadise @MidnightBookGirl awww shucks!! What's the point of a cute doggie if she grumpy? ☺️☺️ 3y
MidnightBookGirl @MyNamesParadise lol, because when she's being grumpy she sounds amazingly like Chewbacca! ;) 3y

A solid final book in the Hundred Oaks series. It was refreshingly sex-positive and worked to not only normalize female teen sexual desire but also the fact that everyone has relationships in their own time. In tackling these issues, though, it started to feel a bit like an after-school special. Fans of the series will be happy, especially with the epilogue.

Breathe, Annie, Breathe remains my favorite HO book.

*ARC from NetGalley #trc2017

One of my favorite things is when teen books have characters who are readers and reference other teen books. In this book the main character's male best friend and possible love interest is the reader! Yay for a hot swimmer boy who reads! He has pretty good taste in books. #arc

MarriedtoMrT @RadicalReader Advanced Reader Copy. This book's not out until June or July. 3y
RadicalReader @MarriedtoMrT what's the best website to get these books from? 3y

Jokila I wonder how many *boys actually read Raven Boys? -- given it's definitely targeted at us ladies 😋 3y
MarriedtoMrT @Jokila I wondered that but then remembered the cars and the adventure and I can see it. He was also rereading Harry Potter and Divergent. 3y
MarriedtoMrT @RadicalReader NetGalley or Edelweiss are two. You sign up for a free account and request copies. Usually you need to be in a book peddling profession or have a well established online presence. 3y
