From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.
I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!
First of all, I'm sorry for posting this so late today - trust me to forget the day of the week!
This week, I'm going to showcase Girl Meets Boy!
This book is written by a host of authors and although I'm not usually a fan of short stories, I think that this one shows real promise! There are some top name authors who have contributed to this book and I'm hoping that I'll find a new author to check out once I've read this one.
Girl Meets Boy: Because There Are Two Sides to Every Story
Hardback, 201 pages
Published March 2012 by Abrams and Chronicle
What do guys and girls really think? Twelve of the most dynamic and engaging YA authors writing today team up for this one-of-a-kind collection of "he said/she said" stories-he tells it from the guy's point of view, she tells it from the girl's. These are stories of love and heartbreak. There's the good-looking jock who falls for a dangerous girl, and the flipside, the toxic girl who never learned to be loved; the basketball star and the artistic (and shorter) boy she never knew she wanted; the gay boy looking for love online and the girl who could help make it happen. Each story in this unforgettable collection teaches us that relationships are complicated-because there are two sides to every story.
