Summer Reading – Five Feet Apart

Books to be swept away with this summer…

There are SO MANY great books around at the moment and so I’d like to share a few that I think are particularly exciting.  I’m not going to plop them all together in one post but give each the opportunity to shine in it’s own right…

Hold on to your hats… here are my summer 2019 recommendations.

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott

with Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Laconis

Recommended for Teen/YA & above…

Here’s the synopsis:



Stella Grant lives to be in control – even though her totally out-of-control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life.  What Stella needs to control most is her distance from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardise the possibility of a lung transplant.

Six feet apart. No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of hospital.  In one week he’ll turn eighteen, and then he’ll be able to unplug himself from all these machines and actually go see the world.

Will’s exactly what Stella meeds to stay away from.  But now six feet doesn’t feel like safety.  It feels like punishment.  What if they could steal back juts a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?


Tissues are most definitely required for this heart wrenching tale.  It has also been adapted into film which is now also available on DVD.  Please read the book first though! 🙂

Five Feet Apart has been published by Simon & Schuster and you can find more about it and where to buy it here (your local indie will be able to get hold of it too if they don’t already have a copy.
