BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION, is a feature of Reading In Winter, which will feature one book from my collection that I plan to read in the coming week. These are NOT review books, but books I’ve purchased, which have been neglected for a long time.

AUTHOR: Jess Rothenberg

HOW LONG I’VE HAD IT: Since last fall.

WHY I’M READING IT: Okay, this book sounds HEARTBREAKING! And most everyone I know who’s read it has given it a crazy good rating. So yeah, I have very high hopes for this book, which can be very good, or very bad, but I’m definitely leaning towards the former. It just sounds like such a good book! And I love the cover — the mix of blues and purples, and looking a little … heavenly? I can’t wait to read this!



Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning…. Welcome to forever.

BRIE’S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn’t love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she’s D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there’s Patrick, Brie’s mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick’s help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she’s ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

Have you read this book?

    • Oh, I hope you can read it! I just read it over the weekend and it was wonderful. 🙂 And don’t worry — I have tons of books on my shelf that I’ve had forever and hope to read eventually. Glad I’m not the only hoarder!
