Reading many lives

A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who never reads lives only one. #WorldBookDay — George RR Martin (@GeorgeRRMartin_) April 23, 2015 With regards to the quote above, if one were of a sardonic frame of mind one might point out that at the rate at which Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin kills off his characters a thousand lives might be an understatement.… (more)

This book is so hopeful and cute and is a really lovely distracting read that will keep you thinking about these characters long after you put the book down. Really loved this one!

I loved this collection! A variety of people meeting someone they are interested in, and it reminded me that life is fascinating and you never know who you might see on SkyTrain or on a city street. Some are futuristic, most are modern day, all are cool reads. Highly recommended for 13 and up.

Thirteen different short stories about love. Whether it be found at a party hiding out from the police, being stuck in an airport or an interview before going to Mars, love is always around. This is very similar to Stephanie Perkins' Summer Days and Summer Nights and My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories. Rating 3 out of 5 stars.

A wonderful mix of stories! This is the perfect collection of romantic stories to read as spring is blooming. Each story is completely different, ranging from contemporary realism to the fantastical, but they all will warm your heart.

"Oomph" by Emery Lord, "Somewhere That's Green" by Meredith Russo, and "Something Real" by Julie Murphy were the standouts for me, but I think that this collection will have different favorites for each reader!

Cute meetings, or meet cutes, can give an optimistic set-up for an entire relationship. A short story anthology that's easy to pick up and set aside as the mood take you. You'll leave each story feeling a little bubbly inside.
