Summer Reading Rec

Just popping in to recommend a great book: All We Ever Wanted Was Everything by Janelle Brown. I don't know Janelle (though I plan to send her an email and tell her how much I loved it!), don't know her publicists, don't know anyone connected with the book, so this isn't gratuitous pimpage. In fact, I just thought the book was so spellbindingly good that I wanted to support it and her. She manages to construct fully flawed yet entirely likable characters, spin a fast-moving plot, and whip it into a solid 400 pages that I read in two days.

Check it out and see if it's up your alley. If you like smart commercial fiction, I highly recommend it.

Shoot - I just posted a summer reading list and I totally forgot to list this one. LOVED this book - it's one of the best I've read in a while. Completely riveting.

I loved this book as well and am looking forward to future books from Janelle.
