All These Things I’ve Done introduced us to timeless heroine Anya Balanchine, a plucky sixteen year old with the heart of a girl and the responsibilities of a grown woman. Now eighteen, life has been more bitter than sweet for Anya. She has lost her parents and her grandmother, and has spent the better part of her high school years in trouble with the law. Perhaps hardest of all, her decision to open a nightclub with her old nemesis Charles Delacroix has cost Anya her relationship with Win.
Still, it is Anya’s nature to soldier on. She puts the loss of Win behind her and focuses on her work. Against the odds, the nightclub becomes an enormous success, and Anya feels like she is on her way and that nothing will ever go wrong for her again. But after a terrible misjudgment leaves Anya fighting for her life, she is forced to reckon with her choices and to let people help her for the first time in her life.
In the Age of Love and Chocolate is the story of growing up and learning what love really is. It showcases the best of Gabrielle Zevin’s writing for young adults: the intricate characterization of Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac and the big-heartedness of Elsewhere. It will make you remember why you loved her writing in the first place.

Why I'm Wishing...
This series really surprised me. I got the audio of the first book on a whilm from my public library because the cover drew me in. So to stumble across the series and really like it is awesome :)

Other books in the Series


  1. Agreed! Still have to read Because it is my Blood, but the first novel surprised me SO much! I love Zevin's writing style and ALL the characters - and I really can't wait to get into this series again. Thanks so much for the reminder!

  2. Considering that I liked the previous two books in this series I hope that this one won't disappoint :)

  3. I've seen those other books all over the place, and I want to read them so much. I'll find the time eventually!

  4. I've actually never heard of these books or the author! But I hope you enjoy it when you get to read it!

    Andddddd, I thought I'd be presumptuous and add: if you ever wanna let someone *borrow* (and I seriously mean BORROW) Across A Star-Swept Sea, I would be much obliged ;)
