Blast From the Past: September 2011

 This is what reading back in September 2011 looks like:

Girls In White Dresses by Jennifer Close- this was my first book I read by Close and I've read every single thing she's written since.  Isabella, Lauren and Mary are three women who seem to be stuck going to weddings and showers for brides to be. I love Close's writing style and the way she really understands what it feels like to be in those years of early adulthood where you don't really know what you're doing or where you're going.

The Grief Of Others by Leah Hager Cohen - The Ryries baby dies shortly after birth and the couple and their older children try to forge on as though nothing in their lives have changed. But they start to realize that this isn't the case and some old hurts resurface. Cohen is another great author whose work I look forward to reading.

Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu -this middle grade novel has a little bit of a fairy tale/magical realism in it as Hazel and Jack, best friends for years, suddenly stop talking.  It turns out that Jack's heart has been frozen.  This one is inspired by The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson and is a delight to read.  

This trio of books is worth picking up a decade later, so if you're looking for something new, check these out.
