Monday Memories: The Birthright Series

Monday Memories is a weekly feature hosted by Miss Print and the Book Bandit. Just take a photo of a book from your personal library (or a library book that’s significant to you, etc.) and talk about why it matters. Is it your first ever signed book? The first book you reviewed on your blog? Whatever it is, write it up in a Monday Memories post and share it. Just please link back if you decide to join!


Today for Monday Memories I’m talking about three books: All These Things I’ve Done, Because It Is My Blood and In the Age of Love and Chocolate.

All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle ZevinBecause It Is My Blood by Gabrielle ZevinIn the Age of Love and Chocolate by Gabrielle Zevin

These books are special to me for lots of reasons. I’ve followed these books from the first ARCs were out for book one. I’ve interviewed Gabrielle about all of them. And, amazingly, my reviews have appeared in the paperbacks of books 1 and 2.


These books also got me through an incredibly hard time not once but twice as I read them while my mom was in the hospital. Which is around the time I received a set of the books from Gabrielle in the mail with this postcard:


In a really rough period, this one package made my month and reminded me that even when things get awful, there can be bright spots.


It’s hard to sum up how much love I have to this series and its heroine in words but I really hope you’ll read them (and love them) too.
