August and Everything After by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski

Publication Date: May 1st, 2018

Goodreads Summary
Summer on the New Jersey shore offers Quinn a new start at life and love, but only if she can come to terms with her past

Graduation can’t come soon enough. Desperate for a fresh start, Quinn is eager to escape to her aunt’s house on the New Jersey shore for the summer…away from teenage drama and having to answer everyone’s questions about “what comes next” after high school.

Quinn can’t bear to focus on the future. She doesn’t even think she deserves one—not after her best friend died in a car accident that Quinn feels responsible for. But when Quinn meets Malcolm, a musician who has been trying to escape his own demons, she starts to believe in second chances.

This book is right up my alley. I think we can all relate to that frustration that comes with the “what comes next” question. I know I’ve felt it. I graduated university two years ago and I still get bombarded by that question. People seem to forget that not everyone has a life plan and that it’s hard as hell to actually figure out what you want to do. So, on that front this book will definitely be one I can relate to. The guilt Quinn feels with regards to her friends death add an additional layer of depth to this story and I can’t wait to follow her journey.

What’s your most anticipated book?

  1. Oh what a great choice, Lois – I didn’t know about this book before, but it sounds right up my alley as well. I love these kind of stories dealing with characters asking themself that damn question “what’s next”. That question is the worst, haha. 🙂

    1. I hate that question. especially when you might have an answer but no idea on how to reach it. That’s the worst part for me. I can definitely see myself relating to a lot of elements in this book.
