If you're someone who has your DVR set for holiday Hallmark movies, you should read The Boyfriend Swap.
We're halfway through Picture Book month!
Here are about 65 recommendations to add to your Christmas (or library) list:
Long, long ago (aka 2011) I read Meredith Schorr's Just Friends with Benefits and commented how the pop culture references were so funny and relateable. Six years later, I laughed out loud when I read one specific line of dialogue between characters in her latest title The Boyfriend Swap, as it was exactly what I have said to my husband about the same song. All of this super vague and awkwardly-written commentary (I'm trying not to spoil the joke or the story!) is just to say that Schorr and her characters get me. Or I get them. Either way, it's a good match.
The Boyfriend Swap-- posed as The Holiday meets The Proposal --features Robyn and Sidney, who connect through a mutual friend to devise a plan to survive the holidays with their respective families...and each other's boyfriend. As you can imagine, some madness and mayhem ensue as the girls try to decide if the boyfriend swap was the perfect plan or a horrible idea.
The Boyfriend Swap is the latest in what's becoming quite a tall pile of Meredith Schorr books on my shelf. They never fail to entertain me with stories that are familiar enough to settle in with, but original enough to keep me guessing. The holiday theme makes this the perfect book to read over Chrismukkah break!
Pre-order the paperback or the Kindle version now or grab a copy in November, but don't miss this one!
My Little Geek is a fun little book that I had the honor of reviewing a few years ago. I just found out that it (and its siblings) will soon be out of print! Use code L337 to get 'em while you can, for 50% off!http://www.cribnoteskelly.com/cnblogwe-have-a-lot-to-say/my-little-geek-book-review
Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr books are among my favorite, and Everywhere, Wonder does not fall short of that expectation.
While it's listed as a children's book, it can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Its pages are filled with, well, wonder. There are philosophical musings (think "if a tree falls in the forest...") presented without the least bit of pretension. There are magical realizations that are grounded in reality. There are everyday happenings posed in wondrous ways.
This is one time that it's ok to judge a book by its cover. You'll love Everywhere, Wonder for the way it looks as much as the way it sounds (the glory of a Swanson/Behr book).
Everywhere, Wonder was written by Matthew Swanson, illustrated by Robbi Behr, published by Macmillan Imprint February 2017

I'm so sorry to hear that Amy Krouse Rosenthal passed away. Such talent...

I'm a little late on the recommendation, but this is a great story with a wonderful message:
