This Week’s YA and Wine Pairings

Happy #ThirstyThursday my fellow adult YA readers! I hope you’re all having a fabulous book week. I know I am!

Here’s a sneak peak of all my wine recommendations for the books I’ve read, am reading, or will be reading this week! Read up and drink up!


 My Recommendations for What I’ve Read so Far This Week:


Definitions of Indefinable Things by Whitney Taylor


I recommend pairing this awesome contemporary read with this Francis Ford Coppola Chardonnay, because it most certainly has its intense moments, but it also has a brilliant balance of light and sweetness as well. Check out my review here!


Red Rising  by Pierce Brown

I would recommend pairing Red Rising with this red Casale de Giglio Mater Matuta, because the society in this book has a very Romanesque vibe to it, and this lovely wine just happens to be grown right outside of Rome. Review coming this weekend!


Romeo and What’s Her Name by Shani Petroff

I’ll be pairing Romeo and What’s Her Name with this Romeo Monastrell Red Wine. Yes, because of the obvious “Romeo” reference, but also because this wine sounds every bit as sweet and heartwarming as the book does! Check out my book feature and enter the giveaway here!



 My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Now:

Follow Me Back  by A.V. Geiger

Try pairing this Apothic Crush Red Wine with A.V. Geiger’s upcoming book where a harmless crush just might take a turn for the dark and dangerous.


Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan

Immerse yourself in this brilliant Rapunzel retelling set in a world ruled by shadows and perpetual darkness while sipping on a glass of this Acronym red blend, handily named Shadow.


 My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Next:

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

Apparently I have a thing for shadows this week; however, I recommend pairing this Queen Millionaire Waltz Malbec with this read, which is dark and royal and perfectly suits Lorelei’s character!



The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine

First of all, I just have to say how EXCITED I am to read this book, because Rumpelstiltskin is my favorite fairy tale of all time. I’ve been WISHING someone would do a retelling on this classic tale, and my wish certainly came true, so I’ll be pairing this Wish Wine Co. Cabernet Sauvignon with C.J. Redwine’s latest novel in the Ravenspire series!


I’m having an AMAZING book week. Hope you all are too!

*Wine recommendations are, of course, for those of legal drinking age only.*

    Is #ThirstyThursday new because it has to be the most fitting hashtag for this blog post. XD Fantastic post (as usual ;)), and that Shadow Queen wine is so pretty. ❤ I can't wait to see your thoughts on it because I heard so many mixed reviews.

    Ohmigod, this is fantastic! I can’t think of anything better than pairing a yummy wine with a great ya book! I’ve never read wine while reading before, but now I must try it out: It all makes sense now! 🙂 Thanks for the follow on my blog “A Book at a Time”! And I am definitely following you back, this blog makes me so happy 🙂
