Happy Friday and Happy Backlist Blast! Since I have not been buying as many books this year, I have come to the realization that I have so many books that I would LOVE to include in this post, but there are not enough Fridays in the year. Anywho, for those who do not know, this is a weekly meme created over on A Couple Reads and Flavia the Bibliophile’s blogs, which is designed to showcase some of the older books you may have on your shelf that you want to read this year. If you are still unsure or confused, here is a little blurb from their sites:
Backlist Blast is a meme that is meant to encourage book bloggers to feature and talk about backlist books (meaning books that were published 6 months ago, or earlier). We all get excited about all of the newest books coming out, but many of us also have a looming TBR of books published 6 months ago or earlier that we still need to read! The main purpose of this meme is to talk about those books, and remember why we wanted to read them in the first place. Another purpose is for readers to find out about awesome backlist books that they might have never heard of before! For more information on the meme, and for optional themes, please see the info page here.
Now let’s blast back to the past!
– My Backlist Blast Choice –
To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Date of Publication: March 20th 2015
Synopsis: What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once?
Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.
I’ve actually had this book on my shelf for abuot a year now, and I swear, I did try to start reading it, but I only got about 50 pages in before I got bored with it. I am hoping to pick it back up soon, and then continue on with the series, as I have heard amazing things about it!
