I am reviewing a copy of The Museum of Us through Random House Children's and Netgalley:
Let me start of by saying The Museum of Us impressive debut novel.
We have a way of letting secrets, even our own out.

The only problem is ...more

Sadie has a boyfriend she loves, Henry, who plays in a band and loves her even though she can’t understand why. Her best friend, Lucie, runs Cross Country and is a secret nerd, but still loves to hang out with Sadie. Then there’s George. George just gets her. They talk for hours. They go on adventures.

This review, and many others, can be found at Lost in My Library. I received an eARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This one surprised me. It was a lot more intense than I thought it would be, and it kept being more intense than I thought it would be.
I wasn't sure how this was going to go in the beginning. I think I was just reading too fast, because I had no idea what was going on. I couldn't figure out whether her parents were alive or not, or how old she was ...more
Sometimes the world really is too much to face, and many of us resort to daydreams or escapist behavior. For many of my friends and me, escape may come in the form of reading books and watching movies, harmless enough pursuits, I suppose, when one considers all the other options that are available. But for Sadie, her dreams and imagination are so vivid that often, reality pales next to them. In her fantasy life, she and her romantic partner, George, have many wild adventures, visiting several ex ...more

Thank you Netgalley and Random House for letting me read this book for my honest review.
Sadie and George were out for a drive one evening when Sadie accidentally hit a tree and landed herself in the hospital. She's broken her leg, but has to stay in the hospital for a while. Reason being? There is something fishy about George. They're trying to figure out how the car accident happened and who/where George really is. Sadie has an amazing su ...more
We all daydream. We all get caught up in an imaginary “us,” the one who has wonderful adventures, is the side of us no one knows and we aren’t always alone. We may have a partner in our daydreams, someone who makes us brave, sees the best in us and pushes us to new heights. What happens when the lines between fantasy and reality get blurred just a little too much? What happens when we would rather go to our “happy place” rather than face reality?
THE MUSEUM OF US by Tara Wilson Redd is the story ...more
Review Posted on Reading Lark 5/31/18: https://readinglark.blogspot.com/2018...
Sadie lives two lives. In reality, she is a high school student with a boyfriend and awesome best friend, but she prefers to live within her imagination whenever possible. George, the one she loves more than anyone, exists solely within her imagination, but Sadie is convinced that he is real. The novel opens when Sadie and George are off on one of their adventures, but the night ends abruptly when Sadie cra ...more
I received an ARC copy of The Museum of Us by Tara Wilson Redd in exchange for an honest review. Thanks goes to NetGalley, as well as Random House/Wendy Lamb Books for this advanced copy which is expected to be released on June 26, 2018.
Sometimes, well, often I find myself sitting at my kitchen table, walking down the street, laying in bed, riding in an airplane without really being “there.” I slip away from reality for moments on end, dreaming about far off places, worlds, and possibilities. I ...more
