Editorial Reviews

Review

Equal parts sweet and fun, Turning Pages pulled me in from the first, making me both laugh out loud and tear up in the first twenty pages. A witty and fun love story that will stick with me for a long time. --Jolene Perry, author of The Next Door Boys

Turning Pages had me bristling with indignation, laughing until my eyes watered, and dying with embarrassment right alongside Addie as she tries to stop hating her new boss. I truly enjoyed this story! --Andrea Pearson, author of the Kilenya series

Format: Paperback
First off--the cover is beautiful, and I love titles with double meanings.

Picture Massachusetts in the fall . . .
Addie Preston has already suffered the loss of her birth mother when she was a baby. Recently, she lost her father in a car crash and her step mother is recovering from the same accident and hasn't been able to work.

Addie is majoring in Library Science with the dream of spending her life in this work. Along comes Blake, handsome, a bit arrogant, and unknowingly takes Addie's promotion right out from under her. Not only that, but the City Council has decided to tear down her beloved, historical library to build something bigger. The old library holds so many memories of spending time with her father that it breaks her heart when she gets the news.

Next, she finds out that her step-mother has to sell their home and buy smaller. On top of it all, the boy she's loved her entire life not only does not reciprocate her feelings, but has used her thoughtlessly as the "backup".

Addie chronically locks her keys inside her sometimes working car and is in constant need of rescue.
Enter Blake again to save the day and add to her humiliation.

Addie's plate is overflowing with all kinds of stresses (there's more that I haven't mentioned), yet her story is written with humor, hope, and a hint of Jane Austen (it's not just a re-write of Pride and Prejudice, either).

All together, it makes for a delightful weekend escape. I would've liked the last chapter to last longer and go slower, but then I never like to leave Tristi's books when I get to the end.

'Turning Pages' was a breath of fresh air. I started reading it solely on account of the theme and the blurb (who doesn't love books and libraries, right?) and was quickly engrossed in the wit and lightness of the story.
Addie is a quirky character who is very sure of her opinions and her way of seeing things. Her personal life has recently gone through some changes and when more changes come in her work life, she resists those as fiercely as she can. By the end, her growth is something that makes you smile and like her even more.
Blake is a very attractive main character, in more ways than one. Although he's not developed as much as Addie is, he's the one who helps her through some of those changes. Their relationship is inevitable and really sweet.
One of the things I really liked was all the veiled references to classic English literature. Delicious! It's also suitable for a YA audience.

Format: Paperback
Once again, versatile author Tristi Pinkson has stretched into a new genre and has done so with aplomb. Her first foray into the young adult market is sure to be a crowd pleaser thanks to the quirky main character, Addie, who manages to always infuse humor into her real-life drama. This clever retelling of Pride and Prejudice will make you cry, and then laugh, and then growl with frustration at the stupidity of two people who are clearly meant to be together. The question is, will they ever see it?

TURNING PAGES by Tristi Pinkston. Who doesn't love a cute romance? I found this book very entertaining and just a fun page turner. Authors that I know and love were mentioned, as well as some I don't know. Addie and Blake were easy to relate to and I enjoyed being a part of their lives. I would highly recommend this book to any and everyone who loves a fun, clean, good read. Be sure to take a look at Addie's book recommendations as well.

Format: Kindle Edition
Addie is an endearing main character, she isn't perfect and she doesn't pretend to be. She's quirky, and she says things without thinking just like most of us. Blake starts out as someone you love to hate, but quickly turned into someone that I had to just love. He's the friend and knight on a shinning motorcycle when Addie least expects it. It was a quick and easy read that kept me up a little too late, but put me to sleep with a smile on my face.

Addie is a quirky character who's easy to relate to with believable conflicts and problems. The plot is engrossing with nice twists and turns and characters you want to root for. If you're looking for a light read for teens or anyone who is young at heart, I totally recommend this book!

I could relate to Addie when it came to a reoccurring weakness. As someone who has had her share of needing someone to open my car because I left my keys inside, I understood.

At one point in the story, Rob, a crush of many years, explained to Addie that just because he asked her to go bowling and sat with his arm around her, he didn’t consider it a date, because he just got engaged. Then when she left, he followed her to the parking lot. There she had locked her keys in her car—again. Fortunately (though she would rather it had been anyone but him at that moment), he knew how to open her car for her.

Unfortunately, not long after, she did it again in the parking lot of a grocery store just when Rob walked by with his new fiancé. Addie’s arms were overfilled with grocery bags, but there was no way she was going to tell him. When he offered to help, she insisted that she was fine (she didn’t want him to find out her keys were locked inside her car.)

“The sack slipped again, and a hand came from behind me and caught it. ‘Here,’ a voice said, and I turned to look into Blake’s eyes.

“Blake.” I tried not to let my surprise show. . . “Hi, sweetie,” I said. “Did you find the . . . jam?”

“Jam?” He raised an eyebrow.

I held my breath and sent him furious telepathic messages. . . “The jam you went back in the store to get, which is why I’m out here waiting for you?”

“Oh, the jam.” He nodded slowly. “That jam. You know, it’s the oddest thing. They were out of the kind you wanted. But I found a few other things.” He held up his own sack. “I’m sorry I kept you waiting. Here, let me take a couple of those bags.”

Introductions were made and Blake announced he was helping Addie make dinner.
