Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!
It's almost Thanksgiving, are you ready?
If that stressed you out too badly, pretend I didn't ask. I know in our house the final preparations are being made today so it can be kind of crazy hectic so those that thrive on that are in their element...those that don't are seeking an escape. How about a bookish escape? (Oh as if you haven't already thought of it...please.) The pick for today definitely goes down as one of my favorites. Curious what it is? Wonder no more. Today's book of choice is....
Dash and Lily...two unlikely friends at face value, let alone anything more, but most people aren't always what they present just on the surface. These two...definitely more there and they just might come together over a red Moleskine notebook with a handful of dares and some memories to share. Sound like the start to a great new title? It is!
A newer release to the YA scene, this is one dare that I'd happily accept all over again...and no, I wasn't dared to read it. In fact, I discovered this title in one of my weekly emails amongst several of the newest releases a few weeks back. I wasn't planning on buying any books that particular weekend though since I've been suffering from a case of my-funds-are-low (perhaps you've heard of it?)...but low and behold one nice discount coupon later and a stop at a bookstore that happened to be where I was out and about that day, and the book was mine...and so the adventure began....
It's not earth shattering in the sense that it's unbelievable or going to change the world...very rarely is there a book of that caliber...but it is earth shaking enough to read it once, read it twice, and shout to the world (or whisper to your friends...which is just how I managed to get at least a few more people interested in it) that this is one of those books that should not be missed.

Riddle me this....since it is the season of giving and sharing, what's one of your more recent favorite reads and why? I'm certainly curious to know and I'm sure that your fellow readers are as well.
Until next time...happy reading!
