Book Birthday! Guess who?

*Throws colorful confetti*
You know who's book birthday it is?Holly Schindler's new book Playing Hurt! I have been dying to read this book, I have heard so many great things about it. Holly's previous book A BLUE SO DARK was a great read and I would recommend it to all you guys! Trust me you won't regret it, and while you're at it, pick up Playing Hurt, which (did I say this already?) was released today! I haven't read it yet, and I never like to recommend books that I haven't read yet, but I know Holly will not disappoint with this new book.

Isn't it a pretty cover. Simple and cute!

Star basketball player Chelsea "Nitro" Keyes had the promise of a full ride to college—and everyone's admiration back home. Then she took a horrible fall during senior year. Now a metal plate holds her together and she feels like a stranger in her own family.

That summer, Chelsea's dad hires Clint, a nineteen-year-old ex-hockey player and "boot camp" trainer, to work with her at a northern Minnesota lake resort. As they grow close, Chelsea finds that Clint's haunted by his own tragedy. Will their romance end up hurting them all over again—or finally heal their heartbreak?
Clint...hmm...future BBAJB (Boys in Books Are Just Better) perhaps? Want to read a little bit more? You can go HERE to read an excerpt. And you can go HERE, HERE or HERE to purchase the book online! Or you can just head out to your nearest bookstore and go book shopping crazy!
