Another month another favorite to share with you. It is crazy how quickly the month goes by when you are doing favorites. I feel like I just did these, granted this past month has been a bit random with posts as I adjusted to school routines. But moving on…here we go!
Title: Sweet Thing
Summary: “You have to teach your heart and mind how to sing together…then you’ll hear the sound of your soul.”
Mia Kelly thinks she has it all figured out. She’s an Ivy League graduate, a classically trained pianist, and the beloved daughter of a sensible mother and offbeat father. Yet Mia has been stalling since graduation, torn between putting her business degree to use and exploring music, her true love.
When her father unexpectedly dies, she decides to pick up the threads of his life while she figures out her own. Uprooting herself from Ann Arbor to New York City, Mia takes over her father’s café, a treasured neighborhood institution that plays host to undiscovered musicians and artists. She’s denied herself the thrilling and unpredictable life of a musician, but a chance encounter with Will, a sweet, gorgeous, and charming guitarist, offers her a glimpse of what could be. When Will becomes her friend and then her roommate, she does everything in her power to suppress her passions-for him, for music-but her father’s legacy slowly opens her heart to the possibility of something more.
A “heartbreaking and romantic” (Aestas Book Blog) debut, Sweet Thing explores the intensity and complexities of first love and self-discovery. – GoodReads
I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I first started this book. I was expecting a typical self discovery new adult book but I go so much more. I found Mia’s journey to be rather compelling, how hard she fought against what would actually make her happy and instead choosing what she thought was suppose to make her happy. Though, despite how fascinating I found the read, there were times that I wanted to write myself in the book and throat punch Mia for being so stubborn and stupid and unwilling to jump into the world she was meant to be in.
Love when author have all the characters thought out and well developed. I was pulled into this world that Renee created. It felt real and I was sold and completely hooked within the first few pages. Even how she started the book was unique and got your mind thinking.
The book was more than just another new adult book, I found she gave some thought provoking topics and while the book is not heavy it gave you some food for thought during the read. All around I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
