Introducing... Songs About Us, by Chris Russell

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
It's so hot today! Can anybody else feel this heat?
Now today I wanted to talk about a book that comes out next week, and just screams summer! (Mainly because it comes out in the peak summer time).
And that book is Songs About Us, by Chris Russell!

Now, if you've been following this blog for a while, then you know that I read the first book in the series last September, and even though it wasn't my normal cup of tea, I was thoroughly (and pleasantly) surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

For the first book, you can check out my review here. (What I loved was that the author, Chris Russell actually contacted me about my review, which was absolutely amazing! He's so lovely, and I can't wait to read the second book in the series).

Now, this wasn't a recap of the first book, but an introduction of the second (though you should expect a re-read of the first next month, just a heads up).

The next book in the series is called Songs About Us, and I'm warning you now, there might be a couple of spoilers in the blurb.
I've warned you! Here's the blurb and the cover for Songs About Us:

 "Two months on from the explosive finale to book one, Charlie's life is almost back to normal again: rebuilding her relationship with her father, hanging out with best mate Melissa, and worrying about GCSEs. All the while, Gabe's revelations about her mother are never far from her mind. And neither is Gabe.

It's not long before Charlie is pulled back into the world of Fire&Lights - but the band seem different this time. But then again, so is she...

Meanwhile, tensions between Gabe and Olly continue to run high, leading to more turmoil between the band members and press than ever before. But when Gabriel and Charlie stumble upon yet another startling truth that links them together - everything they have stands to implode in front of them."

I'm reading this blurb, and I'm getting both the feeling that I know which was the story is heading, but also a complete unknown.
But what I can take from this blurb is that there will definitely be romance, tension, and it's good to see the family aspect hasn't been lost in the second book either.
But what I can predict is that this will be an amazing book of love, choice, chasing your dreams and finding the truth.

Let me know in the comments if you are looking forward to this as much as I am! I can't wait to see what happens in this and how the story will continue.
So I will see you all on Friday, and I hope you have a wonderful day (and try and get a tan)!
