This Week’s YA and Wine Pairings!

Happy #ThirstyThursday my fellow adult YA readers! This week has been insane, but I’ve read some AMAZING books! So excited to have read a couple five star books in the past week!

I’ve quickly realized that I just don’t have time to review every single book I’m reading, but I do have links below to the ones I have reviewed, and I will keep reviewing as often as possible to support the authors that put so much of themselves into these books for us.

Without further ado, 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:

Rise of Fire by Sophie Jordan

This GORGEOUS and romantic Dogajalo Rosato pairs perfectly with the romance and darkly, overgrown world in Sophie Jordan’s latest installment in the Reign of Shadows series.


The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine

First of all, I just have to say how EXCITED I was 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 paired this Wish Wine Co. Cabernet Sauvignon with C.J. Redwine’s latest novel in the Ravenspire series! Check out my full review here!


Sad Perfect by Stephanie Elliott

I recommend pairing Sad Perfect with this Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc, not only because the bottle looks GORGEOUS with this cover, but also because this book focuses on a very unique eating disorder as well as mental health in general. This book is sweet, like this wine, but also deals with some very bare emotions. And it’s FANTASTIC. Check out my full review here!


We Are Okay by Nina Lacour

I recommend pairing this Barefoot Chardonnay with We Are Okay, since the beach in San Francisco is a place where such monumental moments in Marin’s life take place, both good and bad. Check out my full review here!


We Can Be Mended by Veronica Roth

This is an epilogue, not a book or novella, so you can certainly finish it in less time than it will take you to polish off a glass of this Mending Wall Petite Sirah, which I’m choosing to pair it with due to the fact that even in this tiny booklet, we get to see the stories of so many characters we love still mending themselves back together after the events of the Divergent series.


Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton

This book is like Gossip Girl for ballerinas, and it is just so much fun to read. I recommend sipping on this When We Dance Chianti while getting your groove on with Tiny Pretty Things.


 My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Now:

Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake

Jump into the pages of this wonderfully bookish world while sipping on this Page’s Creek Chardonnay!


 Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Tenley Lockwood is faced with an impossible decision that she will have to live with forever in Firstlife, so why not get a taste of forever yourself while you get your read on with this Forever Moscato?


 My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Next:

Guardian of Secrets by Brenda Drake

I recommend pairing this Four Secrets Sparkling Shiraz with Guardian of Secrets though, admittedly, Gia is certainly keeping more than just four secrets in this book. It’s also sweet and bubbly like the swoony romance between Gia and certain someone.


Lifeblood by Gena Showalter

War is raging between the countries of Troika and Myriad in Lifeblood, so I’ll be pairing this Man O’ War Pinque Rose with the latest in Showalter’s Everlife series.


I hope you’re all having an amazing book week!

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

    Always love seeing what wines you put with books. I’m so picky with wines I normally just stick with white Sangria even though my taste buds must be changing because I’m starting to not like the taste of that either. I HATE bitter wines. The sweeter and fruitier something is the better. Do you have any suggestions on the sweetest and/or fruitiest wine??

      Thank you! I used to be to, but that whole acquired taste thing is definitely real! My favorite sweet wines are white zinfandels personally. They’re also this Bartenura Moscato I love that is sweet and delicious!
