The Top Three Books I’m Most Thankful for with Marie Landry of Something in the Air! (#Giveaway)



Here in Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving the second Monday in October, but since it’s close to American Thanksgiving and I’m always happy to talk about the things I’m grateful for, I thought I’d share the top three books I’m most thankful for, and why.


The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling ~
Okay, so this is technically cheating since there are seven Harry Potter books, but I honestly can’t imagine my life without this series. These books got me back into reading during a time when I’d almost stopped reading for pleasure, not to mention taught me so much about bravery, friendship, love, and hope.

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery ~
This was one of my first favourite books. If someone were to ask me what book made me want to become a writer, the answer would hands down be Anne of Green Gables. This book taught me that stories can be serious and poignant while still being funny, romantic, and full of adventures (and misadventures, because hello, it’s Anne Shirley). Plus Gilbert Blythe was one of my first fictional crushes, if not the first. It’s also incredibly inspiring to me that the author, Lucy Maude Montgomery, is a fellow Canadian.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins ~
If Anne of Green Gables made me want to be a writer, Anna and the French Kiss is the book I wish I’d written myself. It embodies everything I love most about contemporary YA - it’s laugh-out-loud funny, romantic, swoonworthy, and full of feels. The characters are flawed and relatable, the setting is amazing, and the story is a lot of fun while still managing to pack an emotional punch and handle real-life issues.

by Marie Landry
Published November 10th 2015
Her life hasn't gone as planned, but she's about to realize that sometimes the best things happen when you stop expecting life to be a certain way...

When Rose Morgan put off her college plans to help her mother through a difficult time, she thought it would just be a bump in the road of her journey. She got a job to help pay the bills and started picking up the slack at home. But three years later, her bumpy ride hasn’t smoothed out yet, and Rose feels stuck. She’s working at a job she hates and living with a manipulative mother. She’s tired of feeling like her life has stalled, tired of the resentment and anger building inside her with each passing day.

Then Declan Connelly appears in her life, and even though the hot Irishman is seriously tempting, Rose is determined not to let him in. She’s afraid to suck anyone into her bizarre life, especially someone who seems too charming for his own good. She soon learns there’s more to Declan than his sexy accent and charismatic personality, though. He’s a good man, and he wants Rose in his life, baggage and all. He’s got his own, and he isn’t scared away like she originally feared he would be.

Everything in Rose’s life is changing quickly. It’s finally her time--time to figure out what she wants and what her future holds. Time to get swept off her feet and not fight it. But when her plans might take her away from all the amazing new things in her life, including Declan, Rose has to make a choice. Is she willing to chase her dreams, even if it means letting go of love?
