Recommend A... meme

…Book Published in 2010

Guys, I can’t tell you how ecstatic I was when Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit announced that she was starting this awesome meme. Shanyn’s AWESOME Recommend A… meme is finally giving me the chance to cater to my inner nerd for specificity and randomness!! AND I LOVE IT. So props to Shanyn, who is fab for starting this up. I’m looking forward to giving some attention to books that might have missed everyone’s radar for one reason or another. Woo hoo!

The love I have for these two books is INTENSE, friends, and it’s possible that you’ve heard of them already. But 2010 was a big year for me when it comes to some of my all-time favorite YAs, and these two are certainly that.

book cover for Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan MatsonAmy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan MatsonThis is such an amazing book, and I’m really not even speaking from bias because the main character and I share a name (I nerd out over this every time it happens because it doesn’t happen all that often). I love this book because it’s about the best road trip ever, and because Roger is one of the most stellar YA boys ever, and because the writing is wonderful, and because Amy is dealing with the baggage of her father’s death, and because their relationship is slow and sweet and satisfying.

The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy NelsonI can’t even deal with how much I love thisbook. Lennie Walker is a girl so devastated and lost by the death of her older sister, Bailey, that she’s just kind of wandering around, guilty and confused. Then she meets Joe, one of the swooniest YA boys ever, and slowly, and not without trouble, she begins to get her life back on track. The writing in this book is beyond gorgeous. BEYOND. I’m not usually a fan of poems, but the poetry that Lennie writes is amazing.

    I cannot wait to read both of these! And to make things better, my library just let me know that the copy of The Sky Is Everywhere that I put on hold is ready! Yay!!!

    I keep hearing a lot about both of these books, so for them to be still going strong in the blog sphere when they were published back in 2010 really makes me think I should hurry up and read them xD

    I only recently read Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour and I TOTALLY understand why it’s so AWESOME. I have a huge crush on Roger AND the music was awesome too!

Tell me what's up!
