Before we met Serena van der Woodsen on the small screen, Blake Lively played the gorgeous and athletic Bridget in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie in 2005. The tale followed four besties who shared a pair of magic jeans that somehow fit all of their different body-types perfectly. The girls passed around the pants during their summer apart to help them stay connected.
Confession time: I was totally obsessed with this series of books and the movie when I was younger. So, naturally, I was ecstatic to hear that author Ann Brashares is releasing a new teen novel called The Here and Now, and it will be available in April of next year. The story follows a time-traveler who is sent to a previous year to help prevent a plague that will ravish earth. There are a few rules she needs to follow and one of the most important is that she isn’t to become intimate with anymore outside her community of time travelers. But of course she falls in love with a time native.
I may not have a lot of time to read with all the galas and social events I have to attend, but I definitely plan on making time to read this book when it comes out. I already have plans to dive into it while sipping on afternoon tea in my library. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?
Mark your calendars for this one, darlings! It’s going to be a big one. XOXO
