Blog Tour ~ To Be Honest by Maggie Ann Martin ~ Playlist + Giveaway

Good morning!!

Welcome! Welcome to the Blog Tour for To Be Honest, the newest book by Maggie Ann Martin, and one of my most anticipated reads of 2018! I was so delighted when I was picked for the tour, I can tell you people far away may have heard me squeal in delight. 😛

Today’s post consists of information on the book/author, but I also got a fun playlist, and lastly a giveaway!

Shall we be honest and start this tour?

Savannah is dreading being home alone with her overbearing mother after her sister goes off to college. But if she can just get through senior year, she’ll be able to escape to college, too. What she doesn’t count on is that her mother’s obsession with weight has only grown deeper since her appearance on an extreme weight-loss show, and now Savvy’s mom is pressuring her even harder to be constantly mindful of what she eats.

Between her mom’s diet-helicoptering, missing her sister, and worrying about her collegiate future, Savvy has enough to worry about. And then she meets George, the cute new kid at school who has insecurities of his own. As Savvy and George grow closer, they help each other discover how to live in the moment and enjoy the here and now before it disappears.

She has a shiny new BA in English and Journalism from the University of Iowa, the most welcoming literary community in the world.

The Music Behind To Be Honest
Music plays a huge part in my life, so it naturally plays a large part in my story writing. For my latest
book, To Be Honest, music really helped me set the scene while I was writing. I found that when I was
writing funny scenes, I would turn to certain songs on repeat, and while I was writing serious scenes,
playing sad or melancholy songs helped me get into that mindset.
I have my To Be Honest playlist down below, but I’ll point out a few of my favorite songs that inspired
different scenes throughout the book.
Warmth by Bastille: This song is so fun, and really captured the Moreno Family Field Day scene for me.
This is the first time we see Savvy and George meet, and she gets some great laughs in with her best
friend, Grace, and the rest of the Moreno clan.
See You by Thriving Ivory: George and Savannah truly see each other to the core in ways that people in
their life never have before. I think this song captures them.
Hold On To Me by Mondo Cozmo: To me, this song really represents the end of the story between
Savannah, her mom, and dad.
Happy Accidents by Saint Motel: I think this also captures Savvy and George well. They met by a happy
accident, but made each other’s lives so much richer because of it.
