Thank you @tlcbooktours and @littlebeebooks for this Middle Grade copy of Fadeaway. My 12 year old son picked this up as soon as he saw the basketball on the front and so far he is really enjoying it. I can’t wait to discuss it with him. .
Do you play any sports?
.
I’m not one to brag, I was pretty awesome at kickball back in the day! 😂 I’ve never really been athletic but with 3 boys...sports has grown on me. .
🏀Book Description🏀

When Sam's best friend Reagan dies after her heart suddenly gives out, Sam must learn to deal with her grief and ultimately discover who she is without her best friend by her side.
.
Fourteen-year-old Sam thinks she has all summer to hang out with her best friend, Reagan. But then her life changes forever. Sam's world, once filled with school, basketball, and Reagan, has now abruptly changed and she must learn to navigate high school on and off the court without her best friend.
.
But when Reagan suddenly "reappears," Sam clings to her friend's presence, even as it hurts rather than helps her grief. Can Sam learn to accept herself without her other half? This authentic, powerful story of friendship, grief, and discovering yourself is a can't-miss debut novel from Maura Ellen Stokes.

What is something you do that helps you decompress or recenter during difficult times?
.
For me sitting on the beach calms me and helps me relax when I’m feeling really anxious or overwhelmed.
.
Thank you @harperonebooks & @tlcbooktours for sending me this gorgeous journal to feature! Tiny Buddha’s worry Journal is full of creative prompts and coloring pages to help work through stressful times and situations. I think this journal will definitely be a great way to wind down and work through whatever is bothering me at the end of a stressful day!
.
I’ll do a flip through in my stories so you can get a closer look at some of the prompts and fun coloring pages.

What is your favorite cold drink for a hot summer day?
.
HI friends! I have teamed up with @tlcbooktours & @harperperennial to share Pirata, a thriller/family novel by Patrick Hasburgh. Pirata has been described as fast, funny and full of suspense! I’m definitely ready to sit on the beach and read this one with a nice cold beverage🍹 🌊 ☀️
.
Synopsis
.
In a former life, Nick Lutz, sold cars in the Golden State. He had a wife and a young son, and they struggled along until Nick was shot in the head when a potential customer hijacked the car he was demonstrating. The incident sets off a bad-luck domino fall, and he loses an eye, his job, his family, and, eventually, his self-respect.
.
With nothing left, Nick heads for Mexico, where he sheds his former self among an eclectic group of expats and locals, who fondly name him “Pirata” on account of his eye patch. There on the beaches of Sabanita, Nick and his buddy Winsor drink, surf, and—most of all—escape, buoyed away from their pasts on south swells and Tecate. Nothing epic. That is until Winsor’s girlfriend, Meagan, ends their abusive relationship and flees with her two boys to the safety and solace of Nick’s beachside casita. A monsoon season fling of convenience turns into a torrid love affair as new loyalties and dark secrets are shaped into something like a family. But when the local policía struggle to identify a body that has washed up in the surf, Nick realizes his secrets—and sins—have caught up with him. And there are dangerous new surprises that have yet to roll in with the tide. . . .
.
Released in stores July 24th

Hey friends! I’m looking for some suggestions on favorite contemporaries! I don’t read contemporary often but when I need a break from fantasy and thrillers I love to pick up a good contemporary to change things up.
.
What are some of your favorite contemporaries?
.
Some of my faves are Fangirl, Eliza and her monsters and It ends with us!

Finally a stack of books that I’ve actually read!! Some of my favorites from @bookofthemonth are The Broken Girl, Ready Player One and Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance! What I like about #botm is that I’ve actually been introduced to books that I probably wouldn’t have noticed, like Beasts of extraordinary circumstance! It’s now one of my favorites and I highly recommend it!
.
What book have you been introduced to and loved that you might not have thought to pick up before then?
