Weekend Library Reading (6): Live Through This, by Mindi Scott

WEEKEND LIBRARY READING is a new feature of Reading In Winter! If YOU make use of your local library, feel free to participate. I work in a library that has a HUGE selection of awesome books, and even when I’m not working I seem to come home with a TON of them, so it only makes sense to showcase some of the beauties I plan to read from my local library over a weekend.

Why I Took Out This Book: This one received high praise from one of my favourite authors, Stephanie Perkins (author of Anna and the French Kiss), who’s quoted on the cover saying “Harrowing, sad, funny, and romantic. I couldn’t put it down.” Based of of this, I knew I had to add it to my list at the library. And that cover is absolutely GORGEOUS! It also sounds like a very emotional and moving read — something I need more of.

What It’s About: 

From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal . . . whatever that means. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time—but Coley’s adorable, sweet crush Reece helps distract her. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a mom and stepdad who would stop at nothing to keep her siblings and her happy.

But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted façade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now that Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.

In this unforgettable powerhouse of a novel, Mindi Scott offers an absorbing, layered glimpse into the life of an everygirl living a nightmare that no one would suspect.

    • I have plenty of weeks where I don’t read any library books — and normally I have a TON of items out from the library! I think that’s why I like this feature, since it forces me to read at least a few books in a month!

    • I hope you like Perks of Being a Wallflower. I read that one before the movie came out since I was going to the screening. I wasn’t the biggest fan, so I’m eager to see what you think!
