Is anyone else in the christmas mood? I know it is november, and still a month and one day until Christmas but I can't help it. As we speak (or I type) I'm looking at my mini christmas tree, lights and all, I put up an hour ago, with Christmas tunes playing and antlers on my head :) and my dearest mother bought me a Lindt advent calender (thanks mum). She also bought me Christmas PJs last week. Christmas is my favourite holiday, with yummy food and fires and snow :)
Anyway, I apologise, I don't mean to go off on tangents (which is all to do with maths, and the lines touching xD I only just realised the origin of the phrase) I just love Christmas too much. Now Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated. My books this week is:
Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers
From the author of Cracked Up to Be and Some Girls Are comes a gripping story about one girl’s search for clues into the mysterious death of her father.
When Eddie Reeves’s father commits suicide her life is consumed by the nagging question of why? Why when he was a legendary photographer and a brilliant teacher? Why when he seemed to find inspiration in everything he saw? And, most important, why when he had a daughter who loved him more than anyone else in the world? When she meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father’s and a photographer himself, an instant and dangerous attraction begins. Cullen seems to know more about her father than she does and could possibly hold the key to the mystery surrounding his death. But Eddie’s vulnerability has weakened her and Culler Evans is getting too close. Her need for the truth keeps her hanging on...but are some questions better left unanswered? goodreads
I love Courtney Summers so much. The first book I read by her was Cracked Up To Be which was amazing. The other was Some Girls Are which I thought was the better of the two. I felt such an attachment to the characters and really empathised with them. The characterisations are just superb, which is hard to do. Fall For Anything looks as though it won't disappoint. Summers' protagonists have dealt with a trauma or grief that affects them as a person and throughout the novel the story unfolds and we build a closer relationship with them, which is such a lovely quality, it is like making a best friend.
The book is released next month on the 21st of December so I thoroughly suggest checking it out!
