Wishful Wednesday was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Desperately Wanting Wednesday by Breaking the Spine and Parajunkee.
This is going to be one of those books that just gives me ALL THE FEELS and drags my feelings all around like a crazy rollercoaster. I love really great emotionally, well written, and meaningful books that are filled with life lesson's, learning to let go, and discovering new things - just embracing life and always believing in hope. That's pretty much what Golden was for me and I have no doubts that I'll love Things We Know By Heart just as much if not more!
When Quinn Sullivan meets the recipient of her boyfriend’s donated heart, the two form an unexpected connection.
After Quinn loses her boyfriend, Trent, in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the pieces of her now-unrecognizable life. She hears back from some of them, but the person who received Trent’s heart has remained silent. The essence of a person, she has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent’s, then maybe she can have peace once and for all.
Risking everything in order to finally lay her memories to rest, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas—a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn't want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they're connected—but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost…and all that remains at stake.
She has written three other YA contemporary books, In Honor, Golden, and Moonglass. She will be releasing Things We Know By Heart in April.
