Musing Monday #18: Musing About Munchies! (Sept. 23rd)

Musing Monday is a weekly conversation hosted by Should Be Reading!

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying about it.

Musing About Munchies

I don't usually eat a lot while I'm reading, but sometimes it's nice to have little snacks to munch on. Usually I like to eat baby carrots between lunch and dinner if I'm reading. (Around when I get home from school!) I also like eating raisins and Arizona Green Tea Packets (mix them with water: YUMM)

Wide Open (Wide Awake #2) by Shelly Crane

Milo is trouble. 
He lives it, breathes it. He embraces anything that numbs and takes his mind somewhere else, a world where his mother is herself and not just a shell, and his brother didn't almost kill her, severing any relationship they had. But more importantly, Milo drowns out the guilt for leaving his mother and not being able to forgive his brother. He drowns his pride and moves on to another girl and another party, pretending that life isn't moving on around him and he's stuck in the same place. He's stuck in the past and doesn't know how to let go.

Maya is trouble.
She's done the party scene and has had her fair share of close calls and handcuffs. Not the kinky kind. She's so over it all and fought like hell for that life to let go so she could move on. She now works as a teen counselor. Her life is better, but her life is empty. She has no one but her brother in the whole world left and he's sick with a disease that no medicine can cure. 

When they meet, a romance that scares them both emerges, but the love you fight for is the love that can mend bridges, heal scars, and open closed hearts. They'll need each other, they'll want each other, they'll have each other. 
But will it all come too late?
Expected Publication:
December 2013

I loved the first book, and am equally excited for Shelly Crane's latest addition to the Wide Awake series. Also loving both covers! Aren't they beautiful?
