Wow, I’ve been rather MIA lately. However, I look forward to getting back into the blog groove. My Nook is working again 😉 and I’ve wrapped up a few projects at work. Speaking of work, we’ll soon be launching the Trivia Express, an online program that welcomes anyone interested. Module #1 focuses on Native American Heritage Month. Please inquire for more details.

Also, while I worked the other night, Gulf Coast Reads hosted an evening with Peter Heller, Author of The Dog Stars, at my library. Since I was on duty, I missed his talk. Nonetheless, the very kind Mr. Heller autographed a copy of his book for me! I look forward to enjoying this book and reviewing later!

I wanted to extend a huge thank you to Kimba C. for being my September 2013 Reader of the Month. It was an immense honor to be honored with her interview!

Lastly, this is my 52nd Post of this meme! That means I’ve done 1 year’s worth of these posts! 🙂

Sarah Dessen’s The Moon and More


Jorie’s Store – The Moon and More By Sarah Dessen

 
Title and Author(s):  Sarah Dessen’s The Moon and More
Release Date: June 04, 2013

Publisher:
ISBN: 0670785601

Source: Harris County Public Library

Add Book to Goodreads

Reasons for Reading: It’s Sarah Dessen’s latest book – need I saw more? It’s even set in the beach town of Colby.

Summary: In the last summer before college, Colby native Emaline has her future set for her. She has Luke, the perfect high school sweetheart, a full-ride at a state school, a loving if not dysfunctional family, and a ticket out of Colby. Emaline thinks she’ll be able to kick back and relax before driving off to college. Soon, those plans change when her mostly absentee biological father and half-brother come in for the summer. Also, a cultured, sophisticated college guy named Theo muddles things on the Luke front. Now, Emaline faces the pulls of familiar Colby and the draw of something new. She wants it all but she must decide what she wants most.

One Thing I Learned from reading this book: I think I want to try a shrimp burger!

What I Liked: Emaline’s best friends, Morris and Daisy, were very interesting. Their appearance in the story was a very pleasant surprise. As always, characters from other Dessen books resurface – Clyde, Auden, Heidi, Maggie, and Colie Sparks!

What I Disliked: There was too much going on in this book. I think Morris and Daisy could’ve had their own book (hint, hint Ms. Dessen!)
