Things I Can't Forget Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway


Welcome to my stop on the Things I Can't Forget Blog Tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. I was so stoked that I got a slot on this tour because Miranda Kenneally is amazing and her books are even more so!

Today, I get to share my thoughts with all of you in the form of a... (wait for it)... in the form of a review! Yay! Also, I've got some awesome giveaways that I really want all of you to enter so stick around, eh?

About the book:

Things I Can't Forget (Hundred Oaks, #3)Title: Things I Can't Forget (Hundred Oaks, #3)
Author: Miranda Kenneally
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Release date: March 1, 2013


Companion to Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker.

Kate has always been the good girl. Too good, according to some people at school—although they have no idea the guilty secret she carries. But this summer, everything is different…

This summer she’s a counselor at Cumberland Creek summer camp, and she wants to put the past behind her. This summer Matt is back as a counselor too. He’s the first guy she ever kissed, and he’s gone from a geeky songwriter who loved The Hardy Boys to a buff lifeguard who loves to flirt…with her.

Kate used to think the world was black and white, right and wrong. Turns out, life isn’t that easy…

Note: Mature themes, sexual situations, religious discussions.

My review:

Miranda Kenneally stole my heart after I read Catching Jordan. When I heard that Stealing Parker and Things I Can’t Forget were going to be companion novels to Catching Jordan, I was thrilled because I wanted more of her books. Normally, when I start a book, I always read/skim the synopsis just so I’m a bit aware of what I’ll be reading, although, sometimes that does take away the surprise factor of the story. My initial reaction to the tidbit about the “religious discussions” found in the TICF synopsis had me pausing before I played. I was a bit wary because I found that it was a heavy factor in Stealing Parker and although that also was the case in TICF, I found that it was more of a parallel factor that played in the growth of our protagonist, Kate.

Things I Can’t Forget is different from CJ and SP in that sports weren’t the main part of the storyline, not that I minded. It was about discovering that people are different and everyone will have opinions and it’s all okay. I think Kate was a great character who I could easily relate to. Her whole life, she grew up believing in God and what her church has told her but as things between her and her best friend crumble, she’s left questioning everything she’s ever known.

About the author:

Growing up in Tennessee, Miranda Kenneally dreamed of becoming an Atlanta Brave, a country singer (cliché!), or a UN interpreter. Instead she writes, and works for the State Department in Washington, D.C., where George W. Bush once used her shoulder as an armrest. Miranda loves Twitter, Star Trek and her husband.
