Super Six Saturday. 
I went out of town this weekend and forgot to post. 

Favorite YA Chick Lit. 
  1. The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. A perfect feel good chick lit book.  Hilarious dialogue with laugh out loud moments.  The romance was cute even a bit fluffy at times but I still enjoyed it.  Rating: 5 foxes
  2. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen: I really like Sarah Dessen novels but this is my favorite.  This book covers the topics of grief and self discovery.  I like how Dessen delivers her message.  It isn't dark and full of angst it's compelling and sweet. Definitely a thought provoking book.  Rating 5 foxes
  3. Moonglass by Jessi Kirby: Another book on grief.  A bittersweet story of a girl that is coming to terms with the loss of her mother.  Along the way she repairs the relationship with her father, meets new friends and finds love. Ratings 4 foxes. 
  4. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick: I think I enjoyed this book because I come from a big family.  The parts that talk about the Garret family seriously made me laugh.  I kept thinking this is so my family. Rating 4 foxes.
  5. If I Stay by Gayle Forman: A heartbreaking but rewarding book to read.  The topics of love, grief and hope are wonderfully written. I recommend this book all the time.  Ratings 5 foxes. 
  6. North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley: A beautifully written  coming of age story dealing with self acceptance.  The main character was relatable.  I also have a port wine stain and remember going through some of the struggles she went through.  I'm lucky my birthmark wasn't on my face but getting in a bathing suit was never easy for me.  A great book to read for anyone that has ever doubted themselves. Rating 4 foxes

  1. I've never tried reading these types of books before. I'll have to give these a try.
