I am beyond super ecstatic to have the wonderfully talented and amazingly sweet Marie Landry on the blog today, sharing Sadie's playlist from her beautifully written and diverse book, Take Them By Storm (Angel Island, #3). I was lucky enough to have the chance to beta read this book and I absolutely LOVED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF IT! It was incredibly well written, Sadie is such a super awesome character, and the romance is super sweet and full of INCREDIBLE FEELS!
Over the last year or so, I've gotten the chance to get to know Marie and share a friendship with her. I discovered that I love how open she is to all kinds of love, that it's not just one way or as vanilla as some may like to argue it should be. Love is loud, bold, happy one minute, erratic the next, extremely complicated, and a tad bit messy. It's also about bittersweet moments and happily-ever-after's. That's what you'll find in all of her books, but most especially in Sadie's story. She write's all the characters you connect with, basically. This is why I am so happy to share with you, Sadie's playlist. I hope you enjoy listening to it, while you read her beautiful story.
The boy next door makes Charlotte forget her almost paralyzing fear of really living her life. Stunted from taking care of her mother in her last months, Charlotte is drowning. With Ezra, she feels something again, and as he repairs her family's summer home, she dares to think he might actually be fixing her, too. Ezra challenges Charlotte to leave her comfort zone, and as their friendship slowly blossoms into more, Charlotte begins to come alive again.
But Ezra has secrets...secrets he isn't sharing with Charlotte. Despite her new-found happiness in Ezra's arms, Charlotte can't help but feel there's a storm on the horizon. And she isn't sure if she and Ezra can weather it unscathed.
When Ella meets River Maracle and Sadie Fitzgerald, she begins to learn it’s okay to be herself, even if that means being different. River and Sadie aren’t ashamed of their misfit status—River grew up on a reserve, and his mother is the school counselor; Sadie stands out with her funky homemade clothes, and is a master at ignoring the whispered rumors that have plagued her since the beginning of high school.
Ella finds a kindred spirit in Sadie, and something more in River. After almost a year of pretending to be someone she’s not, she finally embraces life and allows herself to have fun without constant guilt. But despite her budding happiness, something is off with her new life. She doesn’t want to dwell on the past, but Angel Island is a small place, and she soon realizes her demons are harder to outrun than she thought…
For the first time in her life, Sadie feels free to be herself. She dives into college life and begins volunteering at the local LGBT center, where she discovers her small-town upbringing left holes in her education about life outside Angel Island.
The world is a bigger and more accepting place than Sadie ever imagined. She’s finally found where she belongs, but with the reappearance of someone from her past, an unexpected new friendship, and a chance at love, Sadie soon realizes she still has a lot to learn about life, friendship, and love.
