TBR Tuesday: Fixing Delilah

Most of us have books we've bought with all intentions of reading (or maybe just because it was cheap!), only to have them fade away on a shelf or disappear into a stack of books, never to be seen or thought of again.
TBR Tuesday is a way to talk about the books we own but haven't read, see what other people think about them, and help us decide whether to bump it up our list or knock it off completely.

Everyone is welcome to participate; feel free to link your TBR post to the linky below. :)

Fixing Delilah
Sarah Ockler

Things in Delilah Hannaford's life have a tendency to fall apart.
She used to be a good student, but she can't seem to keep it together anymore. Her "boyfriend" isn't much of a boyfriend. And her mother refuses to discuss the fight that divided their family eight years ago. Falling apart, it seems, is a Hannaford tradition.
Over a summer of new friendships, unexpected romance, and moments that test the complex bonds between mothers and daughters, Delilah must face her family's painful past. Can even her most shattered relationships be pieced together again?
Rich with emotion, Sarah Ockler delivers a powerful story of family, love, and self-discovery.

I've had this one since last summer and haven't even thought about picking it up. Not that I don't think it sounds good, mind you, but it's just not very high priority compared to other things in my TBR monster. So every now and then, I wonder if I should even keep it around... I just don't know.  I've never read anything by Ockler before, and I haven't heard a whole lot about this one - Anyone else read this? Is it must-read or pass-along?

And what's lurking in your TBR?


  1. I've never read the book but you can send it my way ;) jk. It sounds like a great plot for a book though. I say you read it and see whether you like it or not.

  2. I've got this one hiding in my TBR pile, too, and I have the same issue of it not being a high priority book. I have read lots of positive reviews of it, though.

  3. I love Sarah Ockler! And I absolutely adored Fixing Delilah. Her first book, Twenty Boy Summer, is also great, but this one was incredible. I hope you get around to it soon.

    Late again with my TBR Tuesday post this week! Sorry, Misty. =(

    And to compound it, I've never read anything by Sarah Ockler, so I can't really help with this one.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
