Three Good Things
by Wendy Francis
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Publication date: January 1, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Chick-lit
Purchase: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository
Sisterhood, motherhood, marriage, baking, and books—these are a few of the things that make this delightful novel a recipe for getting through the tough stuff of life.
Filled with love, humor, and the scent of delectable puff pastry, Three Good Things tells the tale of two sisters who find their bond invaluable as they navigate marriage, heartache, poor grammar, and the surprising challenges that ultimately become the most fulfilling blessings. Ellen McClarety, a recent divorcée, has opened a new bake shop in her small Midwestern town, hoping to turn her life around, but the past still haunts her—sometimes by showing up on her doorstep. Her younger sister, Lanie, is a successful divorce attorney with a baby at home. But Lanie is beginning to feel that her perfect life is not as perfect as it seems. Both women long for the guidance of their mother, who died years ago, but left them with a wonderful piece of advice: “At the end of every day, you can always think of three good things that happened.”
Wearing her big Midwestern heart proudly on her sleeve, Wendy Francis tells a story destined to be shared after the last page is turned.
This sounds like a wonderful small town tale. I love the mother's advice, "At the end of every day, you can always think of three good things that happened."

by Terri Terry
Series: Slated #1
Publisher:  Nancy Paulsen Books/Penguin
Publication date: January 24, 2013
Purchase: Barnes and Noble/Amazon/Book Depository

Who do you trust when everyone is a stranger?
Kyla's memory has been erased, her personality wiped blank, her memories lost forever. She's been Slated. The government claims she was a terrorist, and that they are giving her a second chance—if she plays by their rules. But scenes from the past haunt her as she tries to adjust to a new life, family and school, leaving her unsettled. Who is she really? And if only criminals are meant to be Slated, why are so many other teens disappearing? As she and her friend Ben seek answers, Kyla is torn between the need to know more and her instinct for self-preservation.
Teri Terry has written a compelling, original and thought-provoking novel that will leave readers eager for Book 2, Fractured, which will be published Fall 2013
I love Dystopians!! Kyla sounds inquisitive and I like a protagonist who questions everything. (maybe I am a rebel at heart?) The idea of having your memories wiped is intriguing. How did this start? Why? Would slating a criminal's mind change them or are we destined to make the same mistakes...oh so many questions!

Love chick lit and sister stories :)
And Slated also sounds interesting too. Is it me, or have there been a LOT of YA amnesia stories lately?

Come check out my WoW pick!
