Quite late here, but better late than never, right? For today’s Teaser Tuesday (a meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm), I have a teaser from Wash Me Away by Wendy Owens.
“I think I hear someone; we should get back to my bedroom,” I lie. I just don’t want her touching my mother’s dress anymore. A pain twists in my chest when I watch Julia haphazardly toss the dress back into the trunk. She slams it shut, rips the hat off, and we’re down the stairs and in my room in a matter of seconds. Julia is panting, watching me wide-eyed.
I peek out of the door and pretend I’m looking for someone, then quickly close it behind me. I think it was my uncle. That was close,” I lie again.
So that’s it for this week’s Teaser Tuesday! Tell me what you thought of this quote in the comments below!
Before: It was the perfect summer of first kisses, skinny-dipping, and bonfires by the lake. Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe knew their final summer at Camp Okahatchee would come to an end, but they swore they’d stay friends.
After: Now, two years later, their bond has faded along with those memories.
Then: That is, until the fateful flash of a photo booth camera transports the four of them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed.
Now: The girls must recreate the past in order to return to the present. As they live through their second-chance summer, the mystery behind their lost friendship unravels, and a dark secret threatens to tear the girls apart all over again.
Always: Summers end. But this one will change them forever.

Hi! Today I have a book review on Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer for you! I know this book has been on the TBR of many people (including mine) and although the decision to purchase and read this was quite sudden and spontaneous, I’m glad I did, because this was a super fun read!
Proof of Forever follows four girls: Joy, Tali, Luce and Zoe, as they are taken to the past to relive their summer from two years back at camp. In the present, they are seventeen, and they have become estranged from eachother. They barely talk, contrary to their close friendship at fifteen, and now, after being transported to the past, the girls have to recreate their summer in order to get back to the present. Along the way, the girls find new love, and make great memories, but most of all, learn to be the friends they once were.Read More »
Hello! It’s Top 10 Tuesday time, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ten books on our TBR for this summer. There was another summer-related topic a few weeks back, (I believe it was great beach reads), so those books also count for books on my summer TBR. However, here’s a list of books I want to read that I haven’t mentioned on that list:
