“Always Starting Over”: One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid | Review

Review: Holy moly. ONE TRUE LOVES by Taylor Jenkins Reid answers one of my biggest questions – and I think a lot of people’s questions – about whether you can have more than one “love of your life.” I’ve always wondered what would happen and how I would feel if something like this happened to me. Even now, I can’t even fathom it, but I feel like Taylor Jenkins Reid, with her brilliant, sensitive, emotional writing, has given me a glimpse into a little bit of how I would feel. I’m not even going to try to summarize this, because […]

It took me a long time to jump on the blogging bandwagon, so this is a great one for me to spotlight all of my old favourites! I still recommend these to people a lot: 1. Secret Society Girl series by Diana Peterfreund – finding SSG and Diana’s blog was a big part of my descent (or ascent?) into book obsession/bloggerdom. I know I recommend these […]

Friday Rants: Let’s Hear It for the Good Boys!

Friday Rants is a new YA discussion series I’m starting here on Mostly YA Lit. It’s a discussion post, but it will start with a question or idea that’s been brewing in my mind for awhile, and I can’t get rid of. Thus, the rant! Come discuss with me and let’s get some of these issues out in the open! Look, I get it. Bad boys are sexy. They smolder, they seem dangerous, and if you’re the one person who can change them…that’s something special. Jordan Catalano, ultimate bad boy. NOT good for you! Lately I’ve noticed a pretty crazy […]
