Blue Sky Days (Books from A to Z)

I am still remembering the announcement of the release party for this book. It was all over the place. I had to find out what all the hype was about, and in reading the book blurb, I can see why it is getting such attention. Again, I purchased it, and had every intention of reading it, but have not gotten to it. I guess this is another one that needs to be part of my TBR Challenge, and I have to make time for. You know, you’d think it was such an awful task to “get to” books the way I make it sound. I just need to get my butt in gear!!!!

blue sky daysBlue Sky Days by Marie Landry sounds like such a heart wrencher!  Could you imagine having never had any friends, boyfriends, and not knowing what your really want in life – to find all those things, be happy, only to discover that the love of your life has cancer? WOW!!!!

I can see my feelings really going for a rollercoaster ride with this one!
Blurb:  A year after graduating from high school, nineteen-year-old Emma Ward feels lost. She has spent most of her life trying to please her frigid, miserable mother - studying hard, getting good grades, avoiding the whole teenage rebellion thing - and now she feels she has no identity beyond that. Because she spent so many years working hard and planning every moment of her life, she doesn't have any friends, has never had a boyfriend, and basically doesn't know who she is or what she really wants from life. Working two part-time jobs to save money for college hasn't helped her make decisions about her future, so she decides it's time for a change. She leaves home to live with her free-spirited, slightly eccentric Aunt Daisy in a small town that makes Emma feel like she's stepped back in time.

When Emma meets Nicholas Shaw, everything changes - he's unlike anyone she's ever met before, the kind of man she didn't even know existed in the 21st century. Carefree and spirited like Daisy, Nicholas teaches Emma to appreciate life, the beauty around her, and to just let go and live. Between Daisy and Nicholas, Emma feels like she belongs somewhere for the first time in her life, and realizes that you don't always need a plan - sometimes life steers you where you're meant to be.

Life is wonderful, an endless string of blue sky days, until Nicholas is diagnosed with cancer, and life changes once again for Emma in ways she never thought possible. Now it's time for her to help Nicholas the way he's helped her. Emma will have to use her new-found strength, and discover along the way if love really is enough to get you through.

  1. This sounds like a book to make the tears flow - give away a box of tissues with each purchase;-)

  2. Not to be read at the beach without over sized sunglasses and plenty of tissue, I'll bet.

  3. Wow. I certainly identify with the character Emma. I was such a grind in high school until we moved . . . I will have to check this one out. Thanks for the review!
