friday finds - february 15th, 2013

friday finds showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your to be read (tbr) list… whether you found them online, or in a bookstore, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased). 

all summaries are from goodreads. 

first, eleanor & park by rainbow rowell. 

"bono met his wife in high school," park says.
"so did jerry lee lewis," eleanor answers. 

"i’m not kidding," he says.
"you should be," she says, "we’re sixteen."
"what about romeo and juliet?"
"shallow, confused, then dead."
''i love you," park says.
"wherefore art thou," eleanor answers.
"i’m not kidding," he says.
"you should be."

"set over the course of one school year in 1986, eleanor and park is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. when eleanor meets park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under."

second, the sea of tranquility by katja millay.
i am so excited for this one. it's out in kindle but not in stores yet. 

 "i live in a world without magic or miracles. a place where there are no clairvoyants or shapeshifters, no angels or superhuman boys to save you. a place where people die and music disintegrates and things suck. i am pressed so hard against the earth by the weight of reality that some days i wonder how i am still able to lift my feet to walk." 

and my last friday find is endless love by scott spencer. 
been meaning to read this one for awhile now. 

"david's and jade's lives are consumed with each other; their rapport, their desire, their sexuality take them further than they understand. and when jade's father suddenly banishes david from the house, he fantasizes the forgiveness his rescue of the family will bring and he sets a "perfectly safe" fire to their house. what unfolds is a nightmare, a dark world in which david's love is a crime and a disease, a world of anonymous phone calls, crazy letters, and new fears — and the inevitable and punishing pursuit of the one thing that remains most real to him: his endless love for jade and her family."
“the only things i regret, and the only things i'll ever regret are things i didn't do. in the end, that's what we mourn. the paths we didn't take. the people we didn't touch.”
