Five strangers. Countless adventures. One epic way to get lost.
Four teens across the country have only one thing in common: a girl named LEILA. She crashes into their lives in her absurdly red car at the moment they need someone the most.
There's HUDSON, a small-town mechanic who is willing to throw away his dreams for true love. And BREE, a runaway who seizes every Tuesday—and a few stolen goods along the way. ELLIOT believes in happy endings…until his own life goes off-script. And SONIA worries that when she lost her boyfriend, she also lost the ability to love.
Hudson, Bree, Elliot and Sonia find a friend in Leila. And when Leila leaves them, their lives are forever changed. But it is during Leila's own 4,268-mile journey that she discovers the most important truth— sometimes, what you need most is right where you started. And maybe the only way to find what you're looking for is to get lost along the way.
I have made it no secret that I fell completely in love with The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer upon its release in 2011. I immediately deemed it my favorite young adult novel and that still holds true today, almost three years later. In 2012, I fell even more in love with Mara Dyer when I read The Evolution of Mara Dyer. I have been waiting for this final installment in the Mara Dyer trilogy since I read Mara's letter at the beginning of The Unbecoming on that winter day in 2011. I need to know ALL THE THINGS. I need to know how her story ends. I need more Mara, and I definitely need more Noah Shaw!
What Are You Waiting On? Leave a link to your WoW in the comments! I would love to see what book(s) you chose to "Wait On."
I have been away from The Reading Enchantress since February of this year, and I have missed it and all of you immensely. The reason behind my absence is not because I wanted to give up blogging, but because my life outside of blogging came largely into play. I know so many of you are able to juggle life and blogging and I admire that very much. However, I am very uncoordinated and not the best at juggling. As hard as I try to keep the balls in the air, I always seem to drop them.
With that said, I am now making my way back into blogging. My third year at BookExpo America proved even more inspiring than the past two years, and I am ready to re-submerge myself into this magical, bookish world. To get somewhat reconnected with all of you, I thought I would end this post with an update...
My favorite time of the year (for the past three years) comes at the end of the month of May. When that time arrives, I always find myself in the most magical city in the United States... New York City! The explanation as to why is very simple. There is something glorious that resides there in the huge packed halls of The Javits Center. It is called BookExpo America, and it is a beautiful gathering of authors, publishing professionals, book bloggers, librarians, booktubers, and my personal favorite from this year... Pinkberry.
I have decided not to do a "BEA Recap" this year, mostly because I took so few pictures that it would be a text driven recap, and I do not find those nearly as fun as vlogs or posts full of selfies. However, today I am presenting you with my Long Overdue BookExpo America 2014 Book Haul. My hope is that you may find some new titles to add to your TBR, or that you can simply fangirl over these releases with me, and maybe even possibly point me in the direction of which book you think I should pick up next!
