February 28th I got…

Only the most beautiful books ever!

Seriously, how cute are they!!

Also checkout that cute unicorn booty bookmark from My Bookmark‘s new collection, which is one of my favorite bookmark companies.

Also, please note, for the first time I went to the bookstore and actually left with what I was looking for. Snaps for Charlee.

  • Everything Beautiful is Not Ruined by Danielle Younge-Ullman

I am BEYOND obsessed with this cover. Barnes and Noble promises us this book is Wild meets The Breakfast Club, which are two high titles to live up to. I’ll be the judge of it and report back.

Description:

Then
Ingrid traveled all over Europe with her opera star mother, Margot-Sophia. Life was beautiful and bright, and every day soared with music.
 
Now
Ingrid is on a summertime wilderness survival trek for at-risk teens: addicts, runaways, and her. She’s fighting to survive crushing humiliations, physical challenges that push her to her limits, and mind games that threaten to break her.
 
Then
When the curtain fell on Margot-Sophia’s singing career, they buried the past and settled into a small, painfully normal life. But Ingrid longed to let the music soar again. She wanted it so much that, for a while, nothing else mattered.
 
Now
Ingrid is never going to make it through this summer if she can’t figure out why she’s here . . . and why the music really stopped.

I have wanted this book since the moment I saw the cover. I’m going to go ahead and say it’s my favorite one ever. This cover is just AMAZING. It reminds me of old picture books. Ya know? Ya feel?

Description:

You go through life thinking there’s so much you need. . . . Until you leave with only your phone, your wallet, and a picture of your mother.

Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind. No one knows the truth about those final weeks. Not even her best friend Mabel. But even thousands of miles away from the California coast, at college in New York, Marin still feels the pull of the life and tragedy she’s tried to outrun. Now, months later, alone in an emptied dorm for winter break, Marin waits. Mabel is coming to visit and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her heart.
 
An intimate whisper that packs an indelible punch, We Are Okay is Nina LaCour at her finest. This gorgeously crafted and achingly honest portrayal of grief will leave you urgent to reach across any distance to reconnect with the people you love.
