Meet Me at MidnightThey have a love-hate relationship with summer.

Sidney and Asher should have clicked. Two star swimmers forced to spend their summers on a lake together sounds like the perfect match. But it’s the same every year—in between cookouts and boat rides and family-imposed bonfires, Sidney and Asher spend the dog days of summer finding the ultimate ways to prank each other. And now, after their senior year, they’re determined to make it the most epic summer yet.

But their plans are thrown in sudden jeopardy when their feud causes their families to be kicked out of their beloved lake houses. Once in their new accommodations, Sidney expects the prank war to continue as usual. But then she gets a note—Meet me at midnight. And Asher has a proposition for her: join forces for one last summer of epic pranks, against a shared enemy—the woman who kicked them out.

Their truce should make things simpler, but six years of tormenting one another isn’t so easy to ignore. Kind of like the undeniable attraction growing between them.

“Sweet and real, and fans of Sarah Dessen or Meg Cabot will find themselves hoping these pranksters find true love. With a light romance, humor, and summers full of swimming, parties, and bonfires, this is a perfect beach read.” —School Library Journal

“Pennington crafts two believable teens ensnared in a hate-to-love romance that is addictingly enjoyable. The comedic matchup between Sidney, a meticulous overthinker, and the charming yet snarky Asher will have readers rooting for the duo. A steamy, prank-filled summer romance that readers will devour.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Does Jessica Pennington have a PhD in chemistry? Because the sparks were FLYING! Meet Me at Midnight is full of wit and romance, with a plot that kept me guessing and characters that I couldn’t help but root for.” ―Lauren Morrill, author of Meant to Be

“A swoony, snarky, perfect romance, set during the summer before college when anything (even falling for your sworn enemy…) is possible. A must-read for YA romance fans!” ―Kerry Winfrey, author of Things Jolie Needs to Do Before She Bites It and Waiting for Tom Hanks

“Meet Me at Midnight is the young adult answer to The Hating Game, set at a picturesque Michigan lake house. Readers will fall for Asher and Sidney as they figure out if they’re better as sworn enemies, friends, or much more. A fantastic addition to any romance lover’s shelf!” ―Christina June, author of It Started with Goodbye and No Place Like Here

My Review

“It’s not like kissing someone gives you any sort of claim to them. There’s not some binding contract of exclusivity that goes along with a kiss.”

The World is dealing with a lot of sadness and heartbreak lately and I seriously needed something cute and sweet to boost my spirits. Meet Me At Midnight did that job and so much more. This was the right thing to add to my life live right now.

Sidney and Asher live to torment each other even though they fit perfectly together on paper. They are both competitors and love to swim but are always forced to spend their summers together. When they should be enjoying the nice warm weather and beach, they find the ultimate ways to prank each other. But one prank too many gets them kicked out of their rental houses. Which results in both families staying inside the same house for the rest of the summer.

With two of the best pranksters, they come up with a devious plan to get back at their old landlady. Together they’ll come up with something explosive to settle the score. But can they agree on a truce while working together? Will they admit the fireworks that go off while they’re together? Or will this ruin their summer of fun before college?

This was absolutely adorable. The pranks that Sidney and Asher pulled on each other had me laughing out loud. I just couldn’t believe how much trouble they went through to get the other to crack. Asher was my favorite character because he seemed the most genuine and super easy to love. And I adored them as a combo. I also really enjoyed that it wasn’t an instant happy ending and we saw how this split affected both of them while attending the same college. It was genius.

Meet Me At Midnight is the perfect book to read to boost your mood. The enemies to lovers trope is definitely a guilty pleasure and this one was just fun. This will put your faith back into swoony romances. This adorable and quirky read is the right pick-me-up!

Jessica PenningtonJessica Pennington is no stranger to the combination of love and drama. She’s a wedding planner, after all. A writer since the age of ten—when she sought publication for her poem about a tree—Jessica likes the challenge of finding the humor in a sad situation or highlighting the awkwardness in a romantic one. She lives in a Michigan beach town suspiciously similar to the one in her novel, with her husband Josh and their son, Rory. Love Songs & Other Lies is her debut novel.

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone is safe and healthy during these strange times.

What have you been doing to stay active or busy? I’ve been reading and watching some bad tv. Also chatting with my friends to keep me sane.

This week I’m going to be reading a very squeal-worthy e-arc sent from the publisher and a reread of an old favorite.

What are you reading this week?

Snuff- Chuck Palahniuk

1840511. sx318


From the master of literary mayhem and provocation, a full-frontal Triple X novel that goes where no American work of fiction has gone before

Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. Snuff unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.
