Sourcebooks Summer

I've really enjoyed all the books I've read from Sourcebooks. They're such a great smaller publisher, and I find that their YA releases are always smart and thoughtful. I was really excited when I went into Chapters the other day and saw Janet Gurtler and Miranda Kenneally's books on the shelves there.

On May 1st two Sourcebooks titles were released that look PERFECT for summer. They are:

The Summer of No Regrets by Katherine Grace Bond
This was the summer that would change my life.

No more being what everyone expected. No more doing what everyone else wanted.

So when Luke came into my life, I decided to keep him a secret. Maybe he as a dead-ringer for notorious Hollywood bad boy Trent Yves. And it was possible that everything he told me was a lie. And yes, I was probably asking for trouble. But all I saw was Luke--sweet, funny, caring--someone who would let me be the real me.

But which was the real him?


While He Was Away by Karen Schreck
One year--he'll be gone for one year and then we'll be together again and everything will be back to the way it should be.

The day David left, I felt like my heart was breaking. Sure, any long-distance relationship is tough, but David was going to war--to fight, to protect, to put his life in danger. We can get through this, though. We'll talk, we'll email, we won't let anything come between us.

I can be on army girlfriend for one year. But will my sweet, soulful, funny David be the same person when he comes home? Will I? And what if he doesn't come home at all...?

Have you read either of these books? Which one should I read first?

I remember putting them on my TBR list MONTHS ago, first because of the fabulous covers, and second because of the interesting sounding plots... yut I haven't had a chance to pick them up yet!


  1. I have both those books on my wishlist and hoping to get them soon. I love Sourcebooks books as well. If I had to pick one to read first it would be The Summer of no Regrets.


  2. I have not actually read either but I would have to say The Summer Of No Regrets. It looks like the perfect summer read!

  3. They both sound good, but I would really like to read While He Was Away.

  4. I'm totally with you--Sourcebooks has really been surprising me with their fabulosity lately. These look really good and I think I'll have to add them to my TBR.

  5. Book look really good.
    For me Sourcebooks is a bit up and down, sometimes I love the books and others they are just Meh. But these sound good

  6. I haven't read these but I agree that the plots look interesting. I've read a few books on sourcebooks. I've had a pretty good experience with them, but I admit I'm usually getting the books through review requests.

  7. I have shared your blog on my facebook community page. :) Books, so many books.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment; I appreciate each one!
