Last night I was lucky enough to attend the #PenguinTeenSocial thrown by the @penguinteenca team at the @penguincanada offices and was overwhelmingly shocked and surprised to hear that @jeffzentner was there! I won’t get into it, but Jeff’s work means so much to me in so many life changing ways and I never thought I would get the chance to meet him. I’ve blurred my legal name out of the picture but his heartwarming message means the world to me. I can’t thank you enough for coming, Jeff. I’ll cherish it forever. ☠️ 🎃 👻 #booklr #bookstagram #bookgram #bookstagrammer #bookgrammer #bookphotography #bookphoto #readersofinstagram #reviewersofinstagram #books #book #bibliophile #igreads #igbooks #booklover #bloggerpreview #rayneanddelilahsmidnitematinee #rayneanddelilah #jeffzentner #penguinbooks #selfie #blogger #bloggersofinstagram #bookblogger
Happy Thursday, bookish friends! Today, we're talking about books that gave us all the feels, and most recently, it was definitely this one! Probably one of my favorite Jeff Zentner books, it would make a great summer read! 😊 * * #QOTD : What's the last book you read that gave you all the feels? * * * #bluelovesbookishmay19 : #allthefeels
RAYNE AND DELILAH’S MIDNITE MATINEE by Jeff Zentner 🌟🌟🌟🌟 This is a very wholesome book about friendship, family, and doing what you love. I definitely reacted more to Delia’s life than Josie’s. I think Delia’s story is really what the book was about. Parts of Josie’s life just seemed too unrealistic to believe. And yes, I definitely cried. #rayneanddelilahsmidnitematinee #jeffzentner #goodbookscutelegs #uppercasebox #uppercasebooks #rayneanddelilah #yafiction #youngadultbooks #bookstacks #2019books #midnitematinee #arealhorrorshow #horrorhosts
“Maybe life isn’t about avoiding pain at all costs. Maybe it’s about having one or two people who have signed up for the messy job of being your salvation, who make your life bigger.” — Jeff Zentner 🥞 - Josie and Delia are best friends, high school seniors, and hosts of a horror show on public access TV called Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee. They have a bond that seems unbreakable. But, when Josie must decide whether to leave Jackson, Tennessee to chase her dreams of becoming a mainstream television star or stay in town with Delia to continue their show after graduation, their friendship is tested. Delia also struggles with the thought of being left behind again since that’s exactly what her dad did to her years ago. Will their friendship survive once high school ends? 🍕🏝 - @jeffzentner knows how to write GREAT books. This one is funny, touching, and relatable for anyone going through a season of change. I bet you’ll laugh and cry. 🧛🏻‍♂️📼
Hey beautiful readers! Im in the middle of so many books and series right now that I can’t keep up! However, I just finished Rayne and Delilah’s Midnight Matinee by Jeff Zentner! . For my review I give this book a 4/5 stars, because on one hand, I truly did love it. I felt like the characters were all super relatable (specifically Josie to me) and that the story really captured the emotions well. However, it didn’t have a huge “wow” factor to it. I would still recommend this book to people, and it’s great as is, but I wouldn’t say it’s one of my all time favorites. . . . #book #books #bookstagram #bookreview #bookreviews #yalit #yearofepicreads #epicreads #jeffzentner #rayneanddelilahsmidnitematinee #rayneanddelilah #reading #read #readingchallenge2019 #imcurrentlyreadingtoomanybooks
Hey there, book nerds! Long time no speak! As you’ve probably gathered from my feed, I haven’t been keeping up with my goal of posting pics daily...or even weekly! 🙈🙈 BUT I did take these shots and wrote up a review over the weekend while my Hubby was out of town! Have you had a chance to read this YA contemporary yet? Check out my full thoughts on my blog (link in the bio)!

Such a beautiful day to hit the library, pick up a new book and take a stroll through through Doylestown.
If you don't know me well, you may not realize what a crush I have on @jeffzentner. I mean y'all.... like seriously. His writing style is so his own, and I love the characters he develops so well. I finished Rayne and Delilah's Midnite Matinee this week, and the acknowledgments in the back made my heart smile. He lists so many of my favorite authors, and I love the community they have built. My dream.... drinks with a group of them. If you don't follow Jeff here, go do it! Then go out and pick up all of his books to read. You will thank me later! #iamreading #booklover #ilovebooks #bookstagram #serpentking #goodbyedays #rayneanddelilah #iheartjeffzentner
✔ Finished! A spoiler-free mini review-- All you really in this life someone to love you as much as Josie and Delia love each other. Go read Rayne & Delilah's Midnite Matinee by @jeffzentner as soon as humanly possible. It will undoubtedly make you laugh, cry, and think about your best friend. Further, it is full of gorgeous visuals, the best descriptions of scents you'll ever read (I really have a thing for the way Jeff Zentner writes about the way things smell), sentences that will steal your breath, and characters that will worm their way into your heart. Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

My @uppercasebox Book Exclusive came in the mail today, and I’m beyond thrilled that the March book of the month is @jeffzentner ’s new book, Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee, because it’s one of my most anticipated book releases of 2019! Not only does Zentner’s debut novel, The Serpent King, continue to be my #1 favorite @owlcrate book of the month, it’s one of my all-time favorite books that I’ve ever read. In some ways, I honestly love Zentner’s second book, Goodbye Days, even more than The Serpent King, so I’m beyond thrilled that I now own an autographed copy of his third and latest book! I’m beyond excited to read Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee!!! 😊 #bookstagram #bookhaul #bookaholics #bookaholic #bookaddicts #bookaddict #bookworm #bookblogger #bookblog #uppercasebox #rayneanddelilah #rayneanddelilahsmidnitematinee #jeffzentner #owlcrate #favoritebooks #favoritebook
This week’s book haul ❤️📚🥰 Well actually, this would be March’s book haul so far, as I preordered two of them 😂 1. A Question of Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro @skippingstones The much anticipated conclusion to the Charlotte Holmes & Jamie Watson series. Teen descendants of Sherlock & Dr. Watson, these two best friends solve crimes all while attending boarding school and dealing with hard life issues (drugs, sexual assault, adults who want them dead, poor parenting, crazy families, a century’s worth of grudges). What was originally planned to be a trilogy, became a fourth novel, which was added because fans (like me) couldn’t get enough of this pair. Highly recommend in print & audiobook 🎧❤️📚 2. Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner @jeffzentner Jeff’s third stand alone novel after The Serpent King & Goodbye Days, and one I’m hoping won’t make me sob quite so much (although I’m not betting on it!) Jeff’s writing and earnest desire to represent teens accurately make these YA novels must reads. 3. Codename Villanelle by Luke Jennings. The novel on which the amazing BBC America show is based, I’m looking forward to reading the book that started it all. And I CANNOT WAIT for Series 2, which comes to the States on April 7. (I love you Hulu). * #booknerdnat #booknerd #booknerdnat2019 #booklove #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #audiophile #readingkeepsmesane #ireadya #mysteryandthrillers #charlotteholmes #rayneanddelilah #killingeve #codenamevillanelle #goodreadschallenge2019 #badassbooknerd #readharder #ilovereading #TBR #neverendingTBR #booksaremagical #booksmakemehappy #causeimabooknerd #withhernosestuckinabook
Today is my stop of the Blog Tour for the new @jeffzentner book, Rayne and Delilah’s Midnite Matinee 💜 . Not only does my blog tour post (available at the link in my profile) contain a spoiler free review, and an extra “bad/good” movie review from Jeff himself but also a reaction video where me and my mum sit down to watch a bunch of horror films. Queue me screaming, hiding behind pillows and cursing her insanely loud surround sound. . Thank you so much to @andersenpress for this #gifted early copy and some great snacks, I had so much fun reading this folk, writing this post and making the video 💜
Next three weeks 😁

You know those authors whose books you own but you have never gotten around to reading but you still love this author because you’ve heard so many great things about them? Well that was Jeff Zentner for me. It didn’t hit me that this was the same author of The Serpent King (which has been on my TBR for years) until I was reading the premise for this book and I was sooo giddily shocked and happy. This feeling lasted for most of this book because the story of Josie and Delia? Goodness it was so heartwarming, I completely loved the friendship between these two girls. I couldn’t help but empathize with both of them and more so at times with Delia whose feelings of loneliness definitely brought tears to my eyes more than once. This book was at times funny and happy but it was also sad in the sense that it dealt with real life emotions and what it feels like to graduate high school and find everything changing around you, not knowing exactly what’s going on nor knowing what to do next. I absolutely recommend this book and I couldn’t have been left with more of a feeling of completeness as the ending of this book left me with. #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bookgram #booksofig #booktography #bookcommunity #booklove #booklover #bookhoarder #bookblogger #bookblog #bookreview #amreading #yacontemporaries #rayneanddelilahsmidnitematinee #rayneanddelilah #jeffzentner #netgalley

When I was in high school, I had my friends whom I would do anything for, even going on a road trip! Did you ever road trip with your friends? ▫️ Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by @jeffzentner was released today and I loved this book so much. Such a fun and beautiful read that centers around friendship, loss, and growing up. I highly recommend this book! ▫️ I was lucky enough to read an early copy as part of an arc tour organized by @diamondxgirl. She even had this gorgeous sleeve made to keep it safe on its cross country road trip! Ps. We wrote in it...a lot (it was hard for me to do). ▫️ #rayneanddelilahsmidnitematinee #rayneanddelilah #jeffzentner #newrelease #newreleasetuesday #randomhousekids #crownpublishing #booksleeve #buythisbook #yabooks #yalit #yabookstagram #yacontemporary #bookish #bookaesthetic #comingofage #booklover #bookrecommendation #bookcrush #bookcrushin

Happy Release Day! “Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee” by Jeff Zentner, narrated by yours truly and @phoebestrole , produced by @prhaudio . . . . From the Morris Award-winning author of The Serpent King comes a contemporary novel about two best friends who must make tough decisions about their futures - and the TV show they host - in their senior year of high school. Every Friday night, best friends Delia and Josie become Rayne Ravenscroft and Delilah Darkwood, hosts of the campy creature-feature show Midnite Matinee on the local cable station TV Six. But with the end of senior year quickly approaching, the girls face tough decisions about their futures. Josie has been dreading graduation, as she tries to decide whether to leave for a big university and chase her dream career in mainstream TV. And Lawson, one of the show's guest performers, a talented MMA fighter with weaknesses for pancakes, fantasy novels, and Josie, is making her tough decision even harder. Scary movies are the last connection Delia has to her dad, who abandoned the family years ago. If Midnite Matinee becomes a hit, maybe he'll see it and want to be a part of her life again. And maybe Josie will stay with the show instead of leaving her behind, too. As the tug-of-war between growing up and growing apart tests the bonds of their friendship, Josie and Delia start to realize that an uncertain future can be both monstrous...and momentous. . . . #audiobooks #prhaudio #sophieamoss #phoebestrole #audible #penguinrandomhouse #jeffzentner #rayneanddelilah ’smidnitematinee #narrators #audible

I’m so deeply thankful for my readers ❤️💜❤️💜❤️💜 Repost @lucieninthestars ・・・ REVIEW: RAYNE & DELILAH’S MIDNITE MATINÉE by Jeff Zentner || 5 ⭐️ || Jeff Zentner knows how to break your heart in the smoothest of ways so that even though you are crying for a loss, it still feels like something new is forming in it's place. They say that when a bone breaks, that break becomes the strongest part of said bone once the healing process is finished. That's how I feel after reading Jeff Zentner's books as they have such deep emotional strongpoints, they can show us how to be better people. And not only in regards to how we see and treat others, but in how we see and treat ourselves. Rayne & Delilah is no exception.

"Sometimes small and unspectacular things can be a universe." ▪️ QOTD: Tell me your top 3 favorite authors! Mine are C.S. Lewis, SJ Maas, and Jeff Zentner 💕 ▪️ This weekend, I finished Goodbye Days...and have already recommended it to no less than probably 10 people. This book is SO IMPORTANT. In typical Zentner fashion, the book was beautiful...sad (naturally), but beautiful. I said this after I finished The Serpent King (my first Zentner book), but I will forever be a reader of his work. If you haven't read any of his books yet, you reallyyyy need to change that! Pick up The Serpent King. Or preorder Rayne and Delilah, a story about friendships, growing up, and maybe even growing apart. They'll all make you cry (some more than others), but the tears are worth it. I promise. ▪️ #novinbooks18 : cozy up with a book #allthebooksnov18 : favorite place to read ▪️ Enough gushing for today. It's time to read! 💜 Gotta catch up on my Stalking Jack the Ripper buddy read 😅 ▪️ #jeffzentner #theserpentking #goodbyedays #rayneanddelilah #bookstack #booklove #instabooks #bookaddict #bookworm #bookish #booknerd #bookstagram #bibliophile #bookstagrammer #bookstagramfeature
Yesterday I was finally able to pick up a VERY important package from @penguinbooks / @crownpublishing and it means the world to me. @jeffzentner ’s novels mean everything to me and I can’t believe I’m lucky enough to have an ARC for his upcoming third novel that is sure to be a huge hit. I can’t wait to dive into Rayne and Delilah’s world and fall in love with them both. 📽 🎞 📺 #booklr #bookstagram #bookgram #bookstagrammer #bookgrammer #bookphotography #bookphoto #readersofinstagram #reviewersofinstagram #books #book #bibliophile #igreads #igbooks #booklover #rayneanddelilahsmidnitematinee #rayneanddelilah #bookmail #advancedreadercopy #ARC #jeffzentner #currentlyreading
