Making the Grade / Breathe, Annie, Breathe


Making the GradeSad but true, there are not enough books that feature girls and sports in YA. As a result, finding a novel that does – and does it well – feels like a hard-earned victory! Miranda Kenneally, an author known for featuring girls and sports, is not new to the young adult scene, although I had continually passed over her other books because they seemed too light of reads to be worth my time {you have to be tough when you have such a long TBR list}. However, after hearing a number of glowing reviews of her latest release, Breathe, Annie, Breathe, I quickly reevaluated my previous priorities :) I loved it, and you can read my glowing review below!

Summary: Annie hates running. No matter how far she jogs, she can’t escape the guilt that if she hadn’t broken up with Kyle, he might still be alive. So to honor his memory, she starts preparing for the marathon he intended to race. But the training is even more grueling than Annie could have imagined. Despite her coaching, she’s at war with her body, her mind—and her heart. With every mile that athletic Jeremiah cheers her on, she grows more conflicted. She wants to run into his arms… and sprint in the opposite direction. For Annie, opening up to love again may be even more of a challenge than crossing the finish line. {Goodreads}

Breathe Annie Breathe Making the GradeLet’s discuss! For other Kenneally fans, will I enjoy Catching Jordan and the other Hundred Oaks books just as much? Would these not make the cutest romantic comedies on screen? I am now on the search for other “sports” books, so I would love to hear any of your recommendations too!

Have an absolutely amazing Monday!
