Book Spotlight: The Last Summer by Cait Marie

TLS Cover

For the first eleven years of their lives, neighbors Lila and Gavin were inseparable best friends. They did everything together. 

Until they didn’t.

Every detail of Lila’s life has been meticulously planned out since she was a child. To the point where she forgot one vital thing: to live. When she receives news that drastically alters the path of her future, she realizes she has one last chance to create memories and make the most of her summer.

Gavin, on the other hand, is known for his carefree attitude. He has lived a charmed life for almost eighteen years. He’s never short on friends or a good time, he has a supportive family, and he’s all set to go off to college and follow his dreams. The one thing he doesn’t have is the girl. 

He doesn’t know why Lila pushed him away all those years ago, but when Gavin finds her summer bucket list, he’s determined to help his goody-two-shoes neighbor cross off every item and hopefully mend their friendship in the process. Even if that’s not all he wants from her. 

He just hopes it’s not too late.

Top 5 Tuesday – A – B – C – D – E

I’m so excited to be back in the blogging world with enough time to post semi-regularly again. It’s been awhile, I know, but this year has been crazy and all of the books I’ve been reading have been backlist titles rather than new releases.

All of that to say, I’m here with a Top 5 Tuesday challenge that’s just that: a challenge. The lovely BionicBookworm has given us the alphabet to work with this month, meaning we have to find a book that starts with each letter of the alphabet.

Along with this challenge, I thought I would make it a little more difficult for me and treat you each to the first line of every book I choose!

So without further ado, I give you A-E!

Chapter One: Hawk

If Orvos had been right about anything since Hawk had met him, it was that nothing was special about this girl.

It was glaringly obvious as Hawk studied her from across the sales floor at Spine Crackers, an aggressively hipster bookshop on the West Side of Manhattan. A place where the books and collection of coffee stood stagnant as the world turned, spinning like vinyl records that crackled on without them.

Nostalgia and the hope of a brighter future was the common denominator between people and it melted its way into the very fabric of your inner-self almost the moment you pulled the door open and stepped inside.
