Review: Flat-Out Celeste (Flat-Out Love #2) by Jessica Park

Flat-Out Celeste (Flat-Out Love #2) by Jessica Park
Blurb from Goodreads:
Whether you were charmed by Celeste in Flat-Out Love or are meeting her for the first time, this book is a joyous celebration of differences, about battling private wars that rage in our heads and in our hearts, and—very much so— this is a story about first love.

For high-school senior Celeste Watkins, every day is a brutal test of bravery. And Celeste is scared. Alienated because she’s too smart, her speech too affected, her social skills too far outside the norm, she seems to have no choice but to retreat into isolation.

But college could set her free, right? If she can make it through this grueling senior year, then maybe. If she can just find that one person to throw her a lifeline, then maybe, just maybe.

Justin Milano, a college sophomore with his own set of quirks, could be that person to pull her from a world of solitude. To rescue her—that is, if she’ll let him.

Waiting on Wednesday: Breathe, Annie, Breathe (Hundred Oaks #5) by Miranda Kenneally

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that you are eagerly anticipating.

Today, I am waiting on:  
Breathe, Annie, Breathe (Hundred Oaks #5) by Miranda Kenneally!



From Goodreads: Annie hates running. No matter how far she jogs, she can’t escape the guilt that if she hadn’t broken up with Kyle, he might still be alive. So to honor his memory, she starts preparing for the marathon he intended to race.

But the training is even more grueling than Annie could have imagined. Despite her coaching, she’s at war with her body, her mind—and her heart. With every mile that athletic Jeremiah cheers her on, she grows more conflicted. She wants to run into his arms…and sprint in the opposite direction. For Annie, opening up to love again may be even more of a challenge than crossing the finish line. This is one of my all-time favorite series!!  If you haven't read Catching Jordan, Stealing Parker, Things I Can't Forget

Top Ten Books That Should Be In Your Beach Bag

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!


1.  Every single book by Elin Hilderbrand is the perfect book for your beach reading!  They are all set on Nantucket (or nearby) and usually have the most idyllic summer scenes.  My favorite of hers is The Blue Bistro.  
2.The Silver Strand series by Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt -- no reason necessary!!
3.  Even though the Rock Chick series is set in Denver, they are so good, so funny and you will read them so quick, which makes them perfect beach reads!


4.  Rosalind James' Escape to New Zealand series is probably my favorite contemporary romance series out there right now!  Just This Once is the first book but the entire series is great for beach reading -- all set in NZ and involving hot rugby players!!
5.  Jennifer Crusie's books are more of my favorite contemporaries and Crazy For You is a hilarious, quick read that I devoured.

6.  If you are looking for a series with more adventure and suspense than a…
