New Book Releases for December 2015

Here is my list of books due for release in December 2015. These are the titles I have already had the pleasure to read or have made it onto my to-read list. Click on the covers for detailed reviews.

Young Adult Fiction

Not If I See You FirstNot If I See You First – Eric Lindstrom – Poppy – Published 1 December 2015

I loved this book. Loved. Loved. Loved. It is hilariously funny, and yet so very moving. Parker is blind. She lost her sight seven years ago in the same car crash that killed her mother. But she never let that slow her down. Parker runs each morning, has a list of rules and isn’t afraid of letting everyone know what she really thinks.  So she can deal with once again coming face-to-face with the boy who broke her heart three years ago. Right? 

Full Review.

Young adult fiction: contemporary.

Book Review: Not If I See You First

Not If I See You First

Not If I See You First – Eric Lindstrom



Parker Grant doesn’t need 20/20 vision to see right through you. That’s why she created the Rules: Don’t treat her any differently just because she’s blind, and never take advantage. There will be no second chances. Just ask Scott Kilpatrick, the boy who broke her heart.

When Scott suddenly reappears in her life after being gone for years, Parker knows there’s only one way to react-shun him so hard it hurts. She has enough on her mind already, like trying out for the track team (that’s right, her eyes don’t work but her legs still do), doling out tough-love advice to her painfully naive classmates, and giving herself gold stars for every day she hasn’t cried since her dad’s death three months ago. But avoiding her past quickly proves impossible, and the more Parker learns about what really happened–both with Scott, and her dad–the more she starts to question if things are always as they seem. Maybe, just maybe, some Rules are meant to be broken.

My thoughts

I loved this book. Loved. Loved. Loved. I think I’m crying (overwhelming, happy tears). When I first read a sample of this book I knew I just had to read it all. And then I got to read the whole book. Wow. You need to read this book. It is hilariously funny, and yet so very moving. Argh, I don’t have words. Just read it.
