My church has a group of women who meet once a month for dinner. These wonderful ladies have become mothers, grandmothers, and friends to me over the years of being a part of the church and since joining them for most dinners over the last 2 years they have become an even bigger part of my life. They gave me this wonderful going away present and I thank them very much.

And yes those are suckers hiding in there....

Stacypatrice How beautiful!!! 9mo

Lord what can I say. I hate Remy, the MC. Lord how annoying was she. But I loved Dexter, and her friends who reminded me of my own great friends. Personally, I‘d have rather read the story from Dexter‘s point of view. Not my favorite of Dessen‘s work. ⭐️⭐️

So after a stressful hour wondering why I was missing two of Dessen‘s books and thinking I misplaced them, only to realize I probably checked them out of the library a long time ago, I signed up for a LibraryThing account. What an amazing app! I haven‘t even scanned in all my books! Im shocked that I have so many books!

I‘ve had this book since my early teens. And, even as a kid, I never liked marking my books (textbooks are different story), but there was no Litsy back then, no community of book lovers to share with, and I didn‘t figure out journaling back then either. So to compromise I would gently underline quotes in pencil, so I can easily erase when I needed.
But I feel this quote is important, especially in this day and age.

”Have you ever seen anything so incredible in your entire life?”—Ariel
Went to the used book shop AND OH MY WRITTEN WORD! This is just one aisle. There‘s about 78 (that I saw, apparently there are other rooms with even more books) and the aisles are LONG, and as you can see, so filled with books they‘re even on the floor.
#usedbooks #indiebookstore #usedbookstore #magic

wanderinglynn While I love the thought of all those books, the fact that they seem to be haphazardly placed & on the floor would drive me nuts. I‘d have to organize. #ocdissues 11mo
PagesByTheWater @wanderinglynn it does look a mess, doesn‘t it? But surprisingly they ARE organized! But they just have such a MASSIVE amount of books they end up all over the place. When I was looking for a particular book they wrote down the author and aisle number for me. Luckily I found it on a lower shelf but there are shelves much higher up that‘s you‘d need a ladder and many books are double stacked, so you‘d have to move those out the way as well! 11mo
SweetAngst They have a paper packet stapled to one of the aisles just as you walk in that lists the various genres by aisle and even that is overwhelming 😂 11mo

I know and love Sarah Dessen's voice already, and this book didn't disappoint my hopes of getting all the feels that I've got in her other books. She's a great author for balancing a line with her romances of introducing love but still allowing strong and empowered female characters.

“Everything, in the end, comes down to timing. One second, one minute, one hour, could make all the difference. So much hanging on these things, tiny increments that together build a life. Like words build a story. One word can change the entire world.” #SarahDessen #ThisLullaby

Starting book number TEN of summer on this rainy Friday morning. I've been reluctant to read my first Dessen because I think I'll get hooked, but I've gotten hooked on quite a few authors this summer (Kacie West and Kristan Higgins to name a few), so what's one more??

Notafraidofwords I loved this one when I read it as a teen. I'm not sure if I were to read it today that it would translate. 2y

Watching her mother's string of failed marriages, Remy, who keeps every aspect of her life neatly organized, vows never to let herself love someone who will only let her down in the end. And then Dexter, messy, clumsy, and impulsive, stumbles into her life.

I enjoy the sensitive and realistic way that Dessen writes about love. Too bad she's about my age because I would have really loved her books when I was a teenager!

My all-time favorite Sarah Dessen book, the one that came out my senior year, I read it before I left for college 800 miles away from home. It still holds up on re-reads, because some things are universal. And the original cover is 💯🎯😻 #hatespinnerbait

My audio and hardcover #CurrentRead for #riotgrams. I usually have several books going at once in different formats. After reading The Bloody Chamber, The Bear and the Nightingale is continuing to satisfy my fairytale craving. And Dessen writes great YA. I'm enjoying the narrator.

@bookriot has a great article about where to start reading Sarah Dessen's books. I'm currently reading This Lullaby, which is my third read from this author. If you are interested in YA that speaks to girls, Dessen is an author you should check out. Here's the link:

readinginthedark Agreed! Love Dessen, and this is one of my favorites. Dreamland is harder than most but gave me a lot of insight on people in the main character's situation. 😞 3y

Some things don't last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.

I am coming to terms with the fact that loving someone requires a leap of faith, and a soft landing is never guaranteed.

Love is needing someone. Love is putting up with someone's bad qualities because they somehow complete you.

Dexter is one of my favorite characters ever, and I've had a huge crush on him since I was about 15. Although "man" is a bit of a stretch, as he is very much a boy.

This is how he is introduced and it is pure perfection, as he body checks Remy's chair into a wall.

(I can't get rid of that extra quotation mark, I'm sorry.)

I'm not a big fan of YA romances, but Sarah Dessen is one of the few authors that I love. It's a bit typical & cliche, but still fun & entertaining.
