Friday Find - Adult Verse Novel

Friday Finds with MizB - Participate, network and get some ideas to add to your TBR list.

Verse Novels became my simple pleasure last year and only last month I asked for recommendations on if Adult Verse Novels were available and guess what.....

One is coming in October, thank you Jennifer at Crazy for Books, she featured it, yaaaay.  I have only read the beginning of Ellen Hopkins series - Crank.

Book Summary from Amazon

In this emotionally powerful novel, three women face the age-old midlife question: If I’m halfway to death, is this all I’ve got to show for it? Holly, filled with regret for being a stay-at-home mom, sheds sixty pounds and loses herself in the world of extramarital sex. Andrea, a single mom and avowed celibate, watches her friend Holly’s meltdown with a mixture of concern and contempt. Holly is throwing away what Andrea has spent her whole life searching for—a committed relationship with a decent guy. So what if Andrea picks up Holly’s castaway husband? Then there’s Marissa. She has more than her fair share of challenges—a gay teenage son, a terminally ill daughter, and a husband who buries himself in his work rather than face the facts. As one woman’s marriage unravels, another one’s rekindles. As one woman’s family comes apart at the seams, another’s is reconfigured into something bigger and better. In this story of connections and disconnections, one woman’s up is another one’s down, and all three of them will learn the meaning of friendship, betrayal, and forgiveness before it is through.

  1. I got to meet Ellen while I was at BEA and boy, is she smart!

  2. I got this book at a Simon & Schuster event and got to meet the author. She was so nice. I can't wait to read it, as I don't think I've read anything in verse since I was in school (which was more years ago than I would like to think about!)

  3. Oh this sounds great. Cool find! You rarely find verse adult novels.

  4. The cover made me think it was an erotica lol :) I borrowed Crank some time ago but didn't get around to read it... I'd wait for your review :)
