This Week’s YA and Wine Pairings

Happy #ThirstyThursday my fellow adult YA readers! We are quickly running out of February, and I’m frantically trying to accomplish all of my TBRs for the month, but I’m guessing I’m not QUITE going to get there. I have read some GREAT books this past week though, so I’m really excited to share my YA and Wine Pairings with you!

Here’s a peak at 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:

Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake

Jump into the pages of this wonderfully bookish world while sipping on this Page’s Creek Chardonnay! Check out my review here!


 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? Review coming your way tomorrow!


Seeking Mansfield by Kate Watson

What better wine to pair with a Mansfield Park retelling than this Mansfield Cabernet Sauvignon? Not only is the label ALMOST as lovely as this story, but the wine is complex and classy, just like Miss Price! Check out my review here!


 My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Now:

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

What better wine to pair with Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall than this Repeat Wine Chardonnay, since Samantha Kingston is forced to live the last day of her life on repeat in this novel (and soon to be movie!). Plus look how PPPRRREETTTYYYY the bottle is!


Golden by K.M. Robinson

A Goldilocks retelling? Yes, please! So why not sip on this STUNNING Prestige Gold Sparkling Wine while reading it? I’m pairing up with K.M. Robinson on the #SerendipiTEAtour so we’ll be stepping a little outside of my usual comfort zone and pairing this debut YA novel with tea as well! Stay tuned for more details!


 My Recommendations for What I’m Reading Next:

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.


Gardenia by Kelsey Sutton

I recommend pairing this Tic Tok Cabernet Sauvignon with Kelsey Sutton’s new novel  Gardenia, in which Ivy can quite literally see a ticking clock over everyone’s head around her, counting down the time until their deaths.


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

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

    Krysti! I stop blowing me away. How are you *so on top* of all that is happening in the YA community?! Wow. I have only heard of two of these books. And all of them sound like something I want to read. Plus they have gorgeous covers! ❤

    Also rose!!! We're not quite in rose season yet, but I am more-or-less counting the days. 😀

      Hahaha. I feel like YA has become my life recently. LOL. But it’s been great! I used to read more broadly before I started this blog, but I’m having so much fun, I don’t feel at all bad about it.

    OMG those wines! Nevermind their taste, those bottles/labels/colors are just to die for! (I’m wine ignorant, please forgive me, I just like pretty things…)
    I also love how you can always pair books with their perfect wine counterpart and am incredibly fascinated by that talent XD
    Thanks for all the recs, Krysti, I’ll be sure to check them out ^^
