Blog Tour: A Place In This Life

Hosted by: Stuck in YA Books

_______

This book is definitely one of the more moving books that I've read lately! So stop on by to learn about the book, see what I thought, and a fun this or that with the author! :)

- The Book -




Synopsis: For Natalie Miller, it’s just another family vacation. For someone else, it’s the opportunity he’s been waiting for.

With only a single peck from a guy named Frank, Natalie’s anything but experienced with boys. But when Todd pops out of the water, says hi, and tells Natalie he has leukemia, all of that changes.

She’s never had attention like this from a boy, let alone one who’s a real charmer with sex on the brain and the experience to match. Drawn to Todd like a magnet, Natalie gives him her friendship, her love, and her body. Even when she’s tempted by gorgeous, healthy schoolmate Alex, Natalie’s desire to love and care for Todd pushes her to see how far love can go in spite of the potential for death of the relationship — and death of the one she loves.

- My Review -

This is one of those books that when you finish you kind of just sit there and wallow in how loaded the story actually was. I was completely satisfied when I finished but I was still doing the whole "jaw-dropping-wow-that-book-was-moving" emotion as well. A Place In This Life is not light by any means. It will pull at every single one of your heart strings. It's completely moving, emotional, and extremely raw.

- This Or That with Julie -

Coffee or Tea?
Coffee, which I'm having right now. Stong, dark Military style coffee. With half-and-half.

Being able to fly or be invisible?
Invisible. I've always been big on stealth because it allows me to come and go without fuss.

Noise or Silence?
White noise. Oh, and The Weather Channel makes great background noise for writing.

Mac or PC?
Mac - born and raised with Steve Jobs. I started on a Mac Classic (the little one from way back when).

Manicure or Pedicure?
Pedicure, because I have Dracula feet. Going barefoot has its privileges, and its downfalls.

Eyes or Lips?
Eyes. They tell you everything about a person.

Paranormal or Contemporary?
Contemporary. The scariest, most moving stories are the ones that really happen in our lives.

Calling or Texting?
Texting. I am an introvert - INFJ to be exact - so I'm a happy camper if I can type it.


Stuck in a broken elevator or stuck on a broken ski lift?
GOD NO! No to both! I am terrified of elevator problems. Ski lifts are too high up. Pass!

Sunset or Sunrise?
Sunset. It is the end of a day that you will never see again, and a very moving experience.
