Puddle Jumping by Amber L. Johnson

When it comes to love there’s no such thing as conventional.

 Everyone thinks Colton Neely is special.

 Lilly Evans just thinks he’s fascinating.

 Once friends when they were younger, their bond is cut short due to her accident prone nature and they go their separate ways. Years later, they meet again and Lilly learns that there is something special about the boy she once knew, but she has no idea what it all means. And she’s not sure if she’s ready to find out.

 When he walks through the corridor of her school the first day of her senior year, she knows that it’s time to get to know the real Colton Neely. The more she learns, the deeper she falls.

Their friendship grows into love, even as Colton does not express it in words. But one decision threatens to break down the world that Lilly has tried so hard to integrate into and she must figure out if the relationship can survive if they are apart.

There are times when I feel like I don’t choose a book to read, a book finds me, and then I read it. I’ve been a big fan of Amber’s work for years, so when I saw that she published Puddle Jumping, I purchased it immediately.

Where We Fell by Amber L Johnson

Where we fell book cover

Book Summary:

Oliver Bishop is having a seriously bad day. With one diagnosis, his life suddenly has an expiration date. Confused by the numbness he feels upon hearing the news, he decides that he needs some time to come to terms with it. One decision to visit his favorite diner causes him to unwittingly put himself directly in the sights of a girl that just may give him a reason to fight – and to live.

Because there’s a difference between living and just being alive.

Authors who decide to self-publish have got to be the bravest people I know. Amber has been writing amazing stories for years, and made the very smart decision to publish her work. I am so very proud of her and was thrilled when she asked me to read her first published book.

FanFic Friday: What we’re reading

Happy Friday! Today, the whole FanFic Friday team is sharing what we’ve been reading—fic, books, newspapers… I kid, I kid, no one reads newspapers anymore. Annie and I used to do these types of posts in those first dark days of my fic break; we thought it would be fun to bring the feature back (cue Annie saying “the feature’s dead Angela”) and have the whole team tell you what they’ve been reading over the past few weeks [Annie: *swinging earbuds* I need your playlists]. These aren’t necessarily reccs but you will most likely find something new to check out! I’ll go first. 🙂

Read the rest, after the jump!
