Mr. Maybe | Jane Green

#HeatIfJuly #CallMeMaybe

I read this ages ago, back in my Jane Green phase and don't quite remember the entire plot, but I do know that it's fluffy and fun like the song and hey, if Mr. Right isn't calling, then call me (Mr.) Maybe...

Cathythoughts Very good 👍🏻 1y
BarbaraBB 👏👏 1y
Maggie_Reads I read a couple of Jane Green books back in the day too. They are fun reads. 1y

CarolynM I've enjoyed some of her books too 1y
Cinfhen Went through a Jane Green phase too‼️ but never read this one 1y
rubyslippersreads I‘ve read quite a few Jane Green books, but not sure about this one. 1y
DebinHawaii @Maggie_Reads @CarolynM @Cinfhen @rubyslippersreads I think this is one of her earlier ones. She does write a lot of good escapist books when you need something lighter to read. 👍📚 1y

Finding long-lost relatives might make you stop and think #callmemaybe 📞 ☎️📱Do I really want to talk to these people??

I haven‘t gotten very far in this book but it‘s a really interesting take on genetics and how we are all related in some way. Also-I‘m a big fan of AJ Jacobs! I‘ve met him in person and he‘s great! #heatinjuly #photochallenge

BarbaraBB This sounds quite interesting! 1y
ElishaLovesBooks @Cinfhen That one is great! I really enjoyed it. Also-Keep your eyes open for a surprise coming your (daughter‘s) way! 💕 1y
Cinfhen Awwww, you‘re so sweet but soooo not necessary 💋💋thank you 🙏🏻 1y

#callmemaybe was a more difficult #heatofjuly prompt for me. I've done 5 in a row and I don't want to break my streak. I started raiding Offspring's bookshelves. It's kind of desperation...but see? Phone numbers on the spines!

@Cinfhen @BarbaraBB

CarolynM 👏👏👏 very clever! 1y
Cinfhen Woohoo!!! Going strong 💪🏼 1y
LA_Mead I loved that series 1y

Sace @LA_Mead I'll have to give it a try. Offspring loved Meg Cabot and her shelves are filled with Meg Cabot books. 1y
Sace @Cinfhen I'm trying! 1y
BarbaraBB Very good! I am still thinking of my #callmemaybe! 1y
Sace @BarbaraBB I'm seeing some really great ones! 1y
BarbaraBB @RestlessFickleBookHoarder Me too. I just posted mine but it‘s not my best 😉😀 1y

Drama | Raina Telgemeier

#HeatOfJuly Day 6: A lot of #CallMeMaybe and teenage “drama” in this funny and self-deprecating graphic novel capturing angst, identity crisis, and what it truly is like to “come of age.” Full review here: https://gatheringbooks.org/2014/05/03/saturday-reads-from-telgemeiers-drama-to-b...

Cinfhen Cuuuute❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️ 1y
GatheringBooks @Cinfhen so very millennial and utterly cute, too, agreed! 😍🤣😘🧚🏼‍♀️ 1y
Sace I've got this one. I really loved Ghosts by the same author. 1y

#HeatOfJuly #CallMeMaybe I admire Mitch Albom, he seems like a genuinely good guy, he‘s a local boy (my kids went to the same Jewish HS) and Tuesday‘s with Morrie is a fav. So, I wanted to like this book ~ the premise residents of a small Michigan town are receiving calls from their loved ones who have passed. Of course most believe it MUST be a hoax! But are there such things as miracles? Lots of interesting ideas but the structure was weak 😬

Suet624 I feel the same way about several of his books. 1y
Cinfhen I‘m pretty sure if some unknown writer submitted this story it wouldn‘t have gotten published @Suet624 🙄 1y
GatheringBooks this title totally slipped my mind! gosh. well-played! 1y

MicheleinPhilly I‘m way too cynical for his books. I really enjoyed Tuesdays with Morrie but everything else I‘ve tried to read has made me 🤮. 1y
Cinfhen Yeah, he‘s a total corn ball @MicheleinPhilly 1y
ValerieAndBooks I remember when we lived in Michigan that he wrote for our local paper— I think he still lives/works there? Still haven‘t read any of his books though. 1y
Bklover Agree 100% with @MicheleinPhilly ! 1y

#CallMeMaybe or maybe not 😲😯 #heatofjuly

Cinfhen That cover!!!! Fabulous 🙌🏻❣️ 1y
Billypar Nice! I wonder if readers back then were still upset about movie tie-in covers 🤔 I feel like it helps that it's illustrated. 1y
BarbaraBB Well played 👏👏 1y
Wilkie @Billypar I love books with the old movie tie-in covers (from the 50‘s/60‘s) but I hate anything modern. 1y
