*Currently on sale on Amazon!*
Fantastic story of a girl who sees the number of days people have left to live when she touches them! I loved Casey‘s pragmatic yet humorous voice, and relished the push and pull between her and persistent PJ as he slowly coaxes her out of her protective shell. And then the twist when Casey finally touches him! Highly recommended for fans of contemporary YA with a quirky or paranormal slant.

HeidiCatherine I love this book! 😍😍 1y

The Harper Effect | Taryn Bashford
post image
Pickpick

This was a well crafted story pitched perfectly at a middle high school level, with honest, flawed characters and a female MC with hard choices to make. Although most teens are unlikely to experience the pressures that come with elite sport, Harper's story is relatable in the ways she relates to her parents, friends and her love interest. We need more books in which active teens can see themselves reflected, and Taryn Bashford delivers.

Was tagged by @gjacobs for #Fridayfavorites 😀 I‘m a few days late but what the heck!

1) I work in a school library organized by genre, so I usually start in Relationships. In a bookstore, I head straight for the #yalit section

2) Can‘t go past Groucho Marx: “Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”

3) Wonder

4) @HeidiCatherine @Clwojick @LadyRuthven @CoffeeNBooks @DebinHawaii

gjacobs Glad you still did it! Wonder is on my TBR list. :) 2y
KatColmer @gjacobs the Easter long weekend messed me up! Wonder is a fantastic gift book. Great for middle grade and YA alike 🙂 2y

The Third Kiss | Kat Colmer

This is one of my favorite quotes from THE THIRD KISS. It‘s actually the SECOND kiss in the book, one that Cora, the female MC, instigated. And I‘m told it‘s just as good as the FIRST kiss in the novel, which won the Romance Writers of Australia First Kiss Competition. Read any books with memorable kisses in them? Tell me which ones?

Am playing along with @MelAnn and others for #TripleTuesday 😀

1. Hmm, notebooks? With ideas. Does that count?

2. Naked! All the way. Book jackets always end up slipping off and getting mangled or lost. Let the pages swing in the breeze I say! 😜

3. I work in a very well stocked School library so I tend to borrow most of my books and put those I want on the purchase list. If I REALLY love a book I‘ll buy it from my local Indie bookshop 😉

MelAnn Notebooks with ideas definitely count! 💡 Thank you for playing! 2y
KatColmer @MelAnn thanks for the game. Great idea 😁 2y

The Undercurrent | Paula Weston

Paula Weston‘s latest #YAlit eco thriller asks some interesting questions about where technology is taking us. This is on my #TBR pile. It‘s also on the Children‘s Book Council of Australia‘s notables list for this year. Have you read it? What did you think?

Carolyn11215 You had me at eco thriller. 😜 2y
KatColmer @Carolyn11215 lol! Have you read any other eco thrillers worth recommending? (edited) 2y

Have started reading this quirky somewhat macabre #YAlit romance (yes, you read those descriptors right 😉) about Esther, whose whole family is cursed, and Jonah, Esther‘s first Crush, as they tackle their greatest fears one strange phobia at a time. It‘s also written in 3rd person, which is a bonus right now because the novel I‘m currently writing is 3rd person, and if it were 1st person I‘d end up getting all muddled in my writing 😏

The Third Kiss | Kat Colmer
post image

Hello! Fellow author Heidi Catherine told me this is THE bookish place to be, so I‘m listening! I‘m a #yalit author & Teacher Librarian so books are my world! My first novel, The Third Kiss, is a fast paced paranormal romance set in Sydney, Australia, featuring an ancient love curse. My second is a YA Contemporary due out beginning 2019. I love talking about all things reading & writing and look forward to connecting with like minded souls :)
