Waiting on Wednesday – In the Age of Love and Chocolate

July 17, 2013

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m eagerly anticipating the release of book 3 in Gabrielle Zevin’s Birthright trilogy. Minion and I are huge fans of this series – we love the strong heroine Anya Balanchine. Minion’s Review of the second book Because It Is My Blood is here.

In the Age of Love and Chocolate – Gabrielle Zevin

In the age of love and chocolate
Series: Birthright #3
Genre: YA Sci-Fi
Published: 29th October 2013
Links:  Book Depository   Amazon   Goodreads

All These Things I’ve Done introduced us to timeless heroine Anya Balanchine, a plucky sixteen year old with the heart of a girl and the responsibilities of a grown woman. Now eighteen, life has been more bitter than sweet for Anya. She has lost her parents and her grandmother, and has spent the better part of her high school years in trouble with the law. Perhaps hardest of all, her decision to open a nightclub with her old nemesis Charles Delacroix has cost Anya her relationship with Win.

Still, it is Anya’s nature to soldier on. She puts the loss of Win behind her and focuses on her work. Against the odds, the nightclub becomes an enormous success, and Anya feels like she is on her way and that nothing will ever go wrong for her again. But after a terrible misjudgment leaves Anya fighting for her life, she is forced to reckon with her choices and to let people help her for the first time in her life.
In the Age of Love and Chocolate is the story of growing up and learning what love really is. It showcases the best of Gabrielle Zevin’s writing for young adults: the intricate characterization of Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac and the big-heartedness of Elsewhere. It will make you remember why you loved her writing in the first place.
