The Here and Now by Ann Brashares

My most recent NetGalley read is The Here and Now by Ann Brashares. You may be a fan of Brashares' work as author of The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants books. (Yes, they are a series of books.) I read the sisterhood books in college and fell in love with them. They are on my to re-read list and may have just moved up several notches. 

Brashares' newest book The Here and Now is about Prenna James a girl from the future. Prenna is from the future because it had become impossible for humans to continue survival there. When her past catches up to her she finds herself caught up in a world far different from any that she has ever known. The future of humanity and herself is dependent on the course she chooses. 

By her side is Ethan Jarves. Ethan has known Prenna longer than she can understand and that gives him the distinct advantage of helping her fail or succeed. What will Prenna and how will she change the world? 

This was a fantastic read. I loved it. So much so, I kept finding myself thinking about it when I was not reading it and wondering what was going to happen. I highly recommend this book. I think fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Host will really enjoy this fast-paced read. You should definitely pre-order it today!

An electronic advance copy of this book was provided to my by the publisher through my NetGalley account. All opinions and synopsis are my own. I really do recommend this book!

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…
