For today's stop for the Night Sky by Jolene B. Perry, I have a blog post from Jolene!
Some of my all-time favorite YA reads EVER.
- Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, and even if I didn't love this book for the whole thing (which I do) it would be on my list for the FIRST KISS. Whew. Made of awesome.
- Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson - this is an intense read, but the language was SO beautiful. When I finished that book, I never wanted to write again.
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - who else could jump into the teen cancer culture and make me laugh and cry all at the same time? I get chills thinking about that book.
- Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally - and I heard it just sold movie rights!! It was a great romantic read, and I seriously didn't see how it could end well. But it did :-D
- Grounding Quinn by Stephanie Campbell - yes, she's a friend of mine, BUT we didn't become friends until I read this totally awesome book. We're doing a collaboration together, and I'm thrilled to work with her.
- The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson - I'm actually planning a re-read of this book shortly. I've gone back and just read the poems MANY times. It's a beautiful story with quirky characters, and I just LOVE it.
- Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake- Wow. Just . . . wow. Scary, beautiful writing, description like I hope to one day be able to do.
- The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. I finished the book days ago and it's still blowing my mind.
- I'll read and love anything by Sarah Ockler.
- Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- Not only did I love the language (and it's not at all how I write) but I loved that I never knew what would happen next . . .
SO! I have a million more books that I could put on this list, but these I'd recommend to just about anyone.
Thanks for having me here today!!

Girl I’ve loved, girl I’m falling for. Now that they’re both in view, the problem is clear.
After losing Sarah, the friend he’s loved, to some other guy, Jameson meets Sky. Her Native American roots, fluid movements, and need for brutal honesty become addictive fast. This is good. Jameson needs distraction – his dad leaves for another woman, his mom’s walking around like a zombie, and Sarah’s new boyfriend can’t keep his hands off of her.
As he spends time with Sky and learns about her village, her totems, and her friends with drums - she's way more than distraction. Jameson's falling for her fast.
But Sky’s need for honesty somehow doesn’t extend to her life story – and Jameson just may need more than his new girl to keep him distracted from the disaster of his senior year.
