I did it again, now, didn't I? I sat for about 6 hours without moving (a lot...) having one short break (to eat something..) and returning back to my reading. I went to sleep at almost 4 a.m. with a huge smile on my face but with a nagging feeling that devouring this book in one day means its over. It's done. I read it and the beautiful thing that it was is now behind me. Who knows when Kristina will publish the next one, ha?

That's the thing, you know, when you read a book which is SUCH a JOY t

So what if I was lucky enough to be a part of this book’s “birthing” process? So what if I was lucky enough to comment and object and say “I don’t get it” while Kris was writing? (to be quite honest, watching her write is quite the experience, especially when you’re impatient for more and she NEEDS to go to Disneyland)

I’m sidetracking myself, so I’ll just give you my impression of this story.

I think it’s not necessary that I give you my version of the plot, so I’ll get right to business.

While I was reading Duplicity one of my friends began raving about this book titled "One to Tell The Grandkids". She said it was the "sweetest, realist, most romantic book EVER". I was intrigued.

So I asked who the author was. Turns out it was Kristina Sanchez, and since I was already reading one of her books and was completely enmeshed in it I knew this book would be fantastic and I was right!

Since she was a teenager, Taryn Sato skirted the edge of disastrous decisions. When she found herself

I read this book in one day. I should have been working, but I couldn't stop reading. It is a lovely modern romance, just as I expected from this author. I also find the cover very pretty. ...more

He leaned in so close, his nose almost brushed hers. “And the fact you’ve done bad things in your life doesn’t mean the good things you do are meaningless. It means the world to me.”

I love how Kristina M Sanchez writes.. The stories she tells are never the 'usual' , it's always some twisty, angsty situation.. And this one... Well, when Taryn winds up pregnant from a one night stand she can't remember and goes in search of the father.. When she finds him the book totally doesn't go the way you th

Not for Springer

The Springer show always had fistfight. Sure, there was the who is sleeping with who, but never handled with the maturity of Mz Sanchez characters. Tayrn does something stupid that is going to affect her the rest of her life. She's not the first to have made a mistake. She's not the first to make this mistake. Unlike many young women though, she really is in a good place in life for this to happen. She has a job she loves, family that loves her, and very supportive friends.

One to tell your friends about

I absolutely adored this story. One to tell the Grandkids isn't just some twisty baby-daddy romance tale, Kristina Sanchez tells the truths. Taryn makes mistakes. She's messed up big-time, and she's done it all over again. Her life isn't perfect, and neither are her friends or family. She has her patchwork family; her friends who would go great lengths to make sure she's happy. Her brother is a jerk, and her parents are rowdy and a little overbearing, but they care

I fell in love with OtTtG faster than I could imagine.
The loneliness of Taryn's inner monologues whilst performing her job, the awkwardness of the situation she got herself into, Slate's easy going and, last but not least Caleb's propensity for self flagellation that nearly drove me mad... And all around Kristina woven her net with fascinating side characters: Taryn's family, her witty friends, Caleb's family's angsty relationship.
It is an amazing tale of finding love in the most unexpected way

This book is amazing! The plot, the feelings are wow. I've cried so much with it and that makes it a memorable one in my eyes. Family and sisterly bond are wonderfully portrayed. If you are looking for a story that would take you over a rollercoaster of emotions, struggling, witty remarks and original names this is your story. I recommend it :D ...more

After being a huge fan of the author's fanfiction, I decided to check out her original characters. I was not disappointed. Her characters were well-developed and the storyline was engaging. I grew to love this little patchwork familly and my only complaint was I want more! ...more

I love this author and as usual, she delivered a complex, intriguing plot and interesting characters.

I adore Caleb. I definitely rooted for him. He kind of stole the book.

Looking forward to more from Kristina Sanchez!
