    Such a heartbreaking and beautiful book. I read this book in less than 24 hours and pretty much weeper the entire time, but it was exactly what I needed. Definitely my favourite book I?ve read so far this year, and one of my new favourite books of all time. Already looking forward to...

    Maybe I'm biased, but I quite liked it. Things in this book: * A love quadrilateral ? * Girls in STEM and sports ?? * A possible sea monster ? * A girl building a boat with her Nana ? * A summer camp in the winter ? * Strong female friendship ? Maybe I'm...

    4.5 stars ?Scary things and amazing things coexist. The world is full of wildness and wonder. And a lot of it is good.? Wild Blue Wonder is a captivating story about family, forgiveness, and the pain of grief. Quinn is learning to live after the tragic loss of her best friend D...

    The main character is obsessed with marine biology, I'm already hooked. I just finished this beauty, WILD BLUE WONDER. I came for the STEM lady (the main character loves marine biology!) and stayed for the cryptids, Moira Fowley Doyle style family dynamics and summer love. ???...

    I was sent an ARC of this book by HCC Frenzy in exchange for an honest review DNF I unfortunately I did not enjoy this book very much. I have been trying to read it for almost the entire month of May but have felt such a huge disconnect. The writing was just okay and some l...

    Stunning and heart wrenching, Wild Blue Wonder is a beautifully written book. Right from the first chapter it is clear that Wild Blue Wonder is magical. Whether it springs from the legends that surround Quinn?s family campground complete with ancient forests and a lake monster or per...

    AHHH I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS!!!! ...

    3.5 stars Normally I would have given a book like this 4 stars but I'm thinking it deserves a 3.5. I was really looking forward to reading Wild Blue Wonder having read some very positive reviews about it and summer is my season for reading contemporaries but...I was a bit disap...

    The Hundreds ? the summer camp run by Quinn?s family ? is a magical place. Spread out across a ten-acre plot in Winship, Maine, The Hundreds is a place where blueberries grow in the deep of winter and a legendary sea monster roams just off the coast. A place where older brother, ...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I went gaga for Sorosiak's debut, If Birds Fly Back. Because of all the love I had for her previous book, I had really high expectations for Wild Blue Wonder. Once again, Sorosiak produced a story, which left me drowning in my emotions. Immediately, I knew somet...

    Wild Blue Wonder has such beautiful writing and it broke my heart at times. The chapters alternate in time by a few months.  The past (summer) is Quinn talking to her best friend, Dylan.  She is sharing stories and how she fell in love with him.  We also find out that both he...

    A really lovely coming of age novel. A powerful portrayl of grief. I particularly enjoyed the questions raised about the impossible. Do we as humans imagine things or create magic as a way of coping with certain aspects of our life? How much possibility is there in the unknown? Fan...

    Quinn believes there are two monsters where she lives, the mythical creature she once saw in the water and herself. Since her best friend's death months before, her family hasn't been the same. This is a great story about moving on, dealing with guilt and other people's grief beside...

    This book was a delight to read! I?ll soon write more detailed reviews for SLJ and my blog, but here?s what resonated with me: 1. A gorgeous setting 2. Falling for your best friend (we?ve all been there at least once) 3. Unrequited Love (again, we can all relate) 4. Summe...

    I really enjoyed When Birds Fly Back, so I am super excited or Carlie's second novel. I love the US cover ;) ...

    *4.5 stars* This was an unexpected gem. Review coming soon! ...

    This is a wonderful wonderful novel that I never knew I needed, with a sibling dynamic that is beautiful and heartbreaking and emotional. I can't wait to hype this book when it comes out!!! ...

    Thank you to Edelweiss for the ARC. What I love most about books is that you can dive right into one without knowing anything about it. There are no movie trailers, FB articles that pop up before you can unsee them etc. I can open it right up and start an unexpected adventure. ...

    There is a part in Wild Blue Wonder where one of the characters, who is British, says ?I always wanted to go to American summer camp as a little boy? and I could completely relate to him in that moment because I have ALWAYS wanted to go to an American summer camp. Since I am a 46-y...

    ?My mother used to tell me that sometimes when a woman?s in darkness, she doesn?t need a goddamn flashlight. She needs another woman to stand in the dark by her side.? Wild Blue Wonder was a really pleasant surprise for me. I hadn?t heard much about it, but when my library...

    Review Posted on Reading Lark 7/20/18: https://readinglark.blogspot.com/2018... It seems to be the summer of reading books set in Maine; I'd be lying if I said that didn't influence my decision to give this one a read. While my last Maine read was a dark mystery, this one is a gorge...

    4 stars "But as you know, in all camp stories, there are monsters. In this one, there are two. The seamonster. And me. Wild Blue Wonder was in my top 3 most anticipated YA-books to come out in 2018, right after The Muse of Nightmares and the Astonishing Color of After, a...

    I almost didn't go on after the first few chapters, when everything felt too YA and the writing, choppy and over indulgent (hence disturbingly reminding me of my own writing, which I dislike), started to bore me. But in a hotel room on a hot, lazy summer day, what else to do than to ig...

    ARC Review (6/18/18, received from Sarah Prineas) Unfortunately, what this book was going for flew over my head. There?s this kind of quirky magical realism vibe that should click with this summer camp and this close-knit family, but it didn?t. I think most of it had to do with ...

    I was prepared for a 3-star book when I picked this one up, but it was actually better than I expected. It made me miss my brothers, and my childhood! I might have been biased, since it took place in New England, but it really made me nostalgic, and I felt really connected to the main ...

    I am a sucker for poignant, melancholy, and sad contemporaries (see my love of Jeff Zentner books), and this book was an absolutely beautiful story about grief and guilt and overwhelming sadness following the death of a friend. It dealt with how grief can tear a family apart, how diffe...

    I went into this book a little skeptic. I liked the idea but some reviews left me nervous that it wasn't going to meet my expectations. And boy was I wrong. I loved this book inside and out. I loved this idea of alternating between the past of summer and the present of autumn/winter. I...

    4.5 stars, rounded up. I'm not a huge fan of YA contemporaries, but every once and awhile, I'll find one that's beautiful. Wild Blue Wonder is one of the beauties. Taking place at the main character's family's summer camp in the fall/winter with flashbacks to the previous summer, Wild ...

    Such a heartbreaking and beautiful book. I read this book in less than 24 hours and pretty much weeper the entire time, but it was exactly what I needed. Definitely my favourite book I?ve read so far this year, and one of my new favourite books of all time. Already looking forward to...

    Review Posted on Reading Lark 7/20/18: https://readinglark.blogspot.com/2018... It seems to be the summer of reading books set in Maine; I'd be lying if I said that didn't influence my decision to give this one a read. While my last Maine read was a dark mystery, this one is a gorge...

    4 stars "But as you know, in all camp stories, there are monsters. In this one, there are two. The seamonster. And me. Wild Blue Wonder was in my top 3 most anticipated YA-books to come out in 2018, right after The Muse of Nightmares and the Astonishing Color of After, a...

    I almost didn't go on after the first few chapters, when everything felt too YA and the writing, choppy and over indulgent (hence disturbingly reminding me of my own writing, which I dislike), started to bore me. But in a hotel room on a hot, lazy summer day, what else to do than to ig...

    ARC Review (6/18/18, received from Sarah Prineas) Unfortunately, what this book was going for flew over my head. There?s this kind of quirky magical realism vibe that should click with this summer camp and this close-knit family, but it didn?t. I think most of it had to do with ...

    I was prepared for a 3-star book when I picked this one up, but it was actually better than I expected. It made me miss my brothers, and my childhood! I might have been biased, since it took place in New England, but it really made me nostalgic, and I felt really connected to the main ...

    I am a sucker for poignant, melancholy, and sad contemporaries (see my love of Jeff Zentner books), and this book was an absolutely beautiful story about grief and guilt and overwhelming sadness following the death of a friend. It dealt with how grief can tear a family apart, how diffe...

    I went into this book a little skeptic. I liked the idea but some reviews left me nervous that it wasn't going to meet my expectations. And boy was I wrong. I loved this book inside and out. I loved this idea of alternating between the past of summer and the present of autumn/winter. I...

    Stunning and heart wrenching, Wild Blue Wonder is a beautifully written book. Right from the first chapter it is clear that Wild Blue Wonder is magical. Whether it springs from the legends that surround Quinn?s family campground complete with ancient forests and a lake monster or per...

    AHHH I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS!!!! ...

    3.5 stars Normally I would have given a book like this 4 stars but I'm thinking it deserves a 3.5. I was really looking forward to reading Wild Blue Wonder having read some very positive reviews about it and summer is my season for reading contemporaries but...I was a bit disap...

    The Hundreds ? the summer camp run by Quinn?s family ? is a magical place. Spread out across a ten-acre plot in Winship, Maine, The Hundreds is a place where blueberries grow in the deep of winter and a legendary sea monster roams just off the coast. A place where older brother, ...

    4.5 stars. I think this book destroyed me, and I absolutely loved it. ...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I went gaga for Sorosiak's debut, If Birds Fly Back. Because of all the love I had for her previous book, I had really high expectations for Wild Blue Wonder. Once again, Sorosiak produced a story, which left me drowning in my emotions. Immediately, I knew somet...

    Wild Blue Wonder has such beautiful writing and it broke my heart at times. The chapters alternate in time by a few months.  The past (summer) is Quinn talking to her best friend, Dylan.  She is sharing stories and how she fell in love with him.  We also find out that both he...

    A really lovely coming of age novel. A powerful portrayl of grief. I particularly enjoyed the questions raised about the impossible. Do we as humans imagine things or create magic as a way of coping with certain aspects of our life? How much possibility is there in the unknown? Fan...

    Quinn believes there are two monsters where she lives, the mythical creature she once saw in the water and herself. Since her best friend's death months before, her family hasn't been the same. This is a great story about moving on, dealing with guilt and other people's grief beside...

    Review to come! ...

    This book was a delight to read! I?ll soon write more detailed reviews for SLJ and my blog, but here?s what resonated with me: 1. A gorgeous setting 2. Falling for your best friend (we?ve all been there at least once) 3. Unrequited Love (again, we can all relate) 4. Summe...

    I really enjoyed When Birds Fly Back, so I am super excited or Carlie's second novel. I love the US cover ;) ...

    *4.5 stars* This was an unexpected gem. Review coming soon! ...

    This is a wonderful wonderful novel that I never knew I needed, with a sibling dynamic that is beautiful and heartbreaking and emotional. I can't wait to hype this book when it comes out!!! ...

    Thank you to Edelweiss for the ARC. What I love most about books is that you can dive right into one without knowing anything about it. There are no movie trailers, FB articles that pop up before you can unsee them etc. I can open it right up and start an unexpected adventure. ...

    There is a part in Wild Blue Wonder where one of the characters, who is British, says ?I always wanted to go to American summer camp as a little boy? and I could completely relate to him in that moment because I have ALWAYS wanted to go to an American summer camp. Since I am a 46-y...

    ?My mother used to tell me that sometimes when a woman?s in darkness, she doesn?t need a goddamn flashlight. She needs another woman to stand in the dark by her side.? Wild Blue Wonder was a really pleasant surprise for me. I hadn?t heard much about it, but when my library...

    Review Posted on Reading Lark 7/20/18: https://readinglark.blogspot.com/2018... It seems to be the summer of reading books set in Maine; I'd be lying if I said that didn't influence my decision to give this one a read. While my last Maine read was a dark mystery, this one is a gorge...

    4 stars "But as you know, in all camp stories, there are monsters. In this one, there are two. The seamonster. And me. Wild Blue Wonder was in my top 3 most anticipated YA-books to come out in 2018, right after The Muse of Nightmares and the Astonishing Color of After, a...

    I almost didn't go on after the first few chapters, when everything felt too YA and the writing, choppy and over indulgent (hence disturbingly reminding me of my own writing, which I dislike), started to bore me. But in a hotel room on a hot, lazy summer day, what else to do than to ig...

    ARC Review (6/18/18, received from Sarah Prineas) Unfortunately, what this book was going for flew over my head. There?s this kind of quirky magical realism vibe that should click with this summer camp and this close-knit family, but it didn?t. I think most of it had to do with ...

    I was prepared for a 3-star book when I picked this one up, but it was actually better than I expected. It made me miss my brothers, and my childhood! I might have been biased, since it took place in New England, but it really made me nostalgic, and I felt really connected to the main ...

    I am a sucker for poignant, melancholy, and sad contemporaries (see my love of Jeff Zentner books), and this book was an absolutely beautiful story about grief and guilt and overwhelming sadness following the death of a friend. It dealt with how grief can tear a family apart, how diffe...

    Such a heartbreaking and beautiful book. I read this book in less than 24 hours and pretty much weeper the entire time, but it was exactly what I needed. Definitely my favourite book I?ve read so far this year, and one of my new favourite books of all time. Already looking forward to...

    Maybe I'm biased, but I quite liked it. Things in this book: * A love quadrilateral ? * Girls in STEM and sports ?? * A possible sea monster ? * A girl building a boat with her Nana ? * A summer camp in the winter ? * Strong female friendship ? Maybe I'm...

    4.5 stars ?Scary things and amazing things coexist. The world is full of wildness and wonder. And a lot of it is good.? Wild Blue Wonder is a captivating story about family, forgiveness, and the pain of grief. Quinn is learning to live after the tragic loss of her best friend D...
