August’s Book

Head Over Heels by Hannah Orenstein

I can’t believe August is finally here, before we know it we’ll be drinking Pumpkin Spiced Lattes cuddled up with our books”¦ I don’t know about you, but I’m READY for Fall!

This month we are reading Head Over Heels by Hannah Orenstein. I don’t know about you but I am really feeling the absence of the Summer Olympics we were promised this year so I couldn’t resist choosing this book which revolves around the world of competitive gymnastics. A great story with lots of layers, I hope Head Over Heels prove to be a fun Summer read that fills that Olympics sized hole in your heart.

Why we chose it

From The Editors

For those of you, like me, who are missing the Summer Olympics this year, this book is for you! By chapter three you will be rooting for these characters and holding your breath for a gold medal. I promise, this is your next great read.

A rom-com coupled with Olympic gymnastics?! Has Hannah Orenstein been reading my dream journal? I am a hard core Olympics fan girl and gymnastics is probably my favorite Olympic sport. This book is fun and fizzy but also has depth as it pulls back the curtain on one of my favorite pastimes.


This is the CUTEST read! It strikes the perfect balance between a heartwarming romance and a commentary on important issues. You will fall in love with these characters and root for them the whole way through!

    My Favorite Way To Listen

    Audiobooks have long been my favorite way to listen. It’s so easy to listen in the car, on the go, or around the house! I’ve recently switched to and I love it so much because money from each purchase goes to the independent bookstore of your choice! Plus, their team is friendly and the customer service is amazing!
