ARC Review: 5 stars to Tell Us Something True by Dana Reinhardt

Posted 26 May, 2016 by katheryn13 in Contemporary, Funny, Reviews, Romance, YA / 0 Comments

Seventeen-year-old River doesn’t know what to do with himself when Penny, the girl he adores, breaks up with him. He lives in LA, where nobody walks anywhere, and Penny was his ride; he never bothered getting a license. He’s stuck. He’s desperate. Okay . . . he’s got to learn to drive.

But first, he does the unthinkable—he starts walking. He stumbles upon a support group for teens with various addictions. He fakes his way into the meetings, and begins to connect with the other kids, especially an amazing girl. River wants to tell the truth, but he can’t stop lying, and his tangle of deception may unravel before he learns how to handle the most potent drug of all: true love.

Review:

 

So. I received this as an ARC from Rock The Boat, but this does not sway my vote. I thoroughly enjoyed this incredibly short book. Only something like 200 pages? Honestly, I could have read another 200 pages. It was so good.

The basis of this story is that River has just been dumbed by his girlfriend – the completely and utter bitch that is Penny – and he doesn’t know what to do with himself anymore. He walks home – all 10 miles of it – and discovers a sign promising a new chance at life. Second Chances. He goes in there, completely heartbroken, lost, and confused. Only, the circle of people he comes across all have far deeper, far more serious problems than River.

When River is asked what he’s there for, he doesn’t know what to say. He can’t exactly just say it’s because of a girl. So instead he says he’s addicted to weed. I mean…why? WHY WEED, IDIOT?! I’m laughing and cringing so hard by this point, I can barely see the page. It’s unreal how deep he virtually digs his own grave with his lies. It never gets any better, and soon he’s making friends with his group and falls for girls way out of his league.

Penny dumps him for not thinking things through enough (among other reasons) and by golly does he end up thinking about everything afterwards.

Daphne is one of a kind and she grew on me the more I read of her. Whereas Penny was just annoying and so ungrateful. All the characters in this were unbelievable in the sense of brilliance and no one was left out, no one was useless. Natalie, River’s sister, was cute and fabulous. Even his parents were funny and involved in his life, unlike some parents in books.

I can’t recommend this book highly enough.

There’s humour to tickle your funny bone, heartbreak to make you cry at night, enough angst and seriousness to have you thinking and the romance is cute and adorable at every angle, that you won’t go away empty handed.

I rated this 5 stars, and I do not regret it. It’s been one of the best reads of 2016 (so far. I mean, we’re only in April.)

Guys, this is a winner! 😀

Review: Splintered by A.G. Howard

Posted 22 April, 2016 by katheryn13 in Adventure, Fantasy, Mystery, Reviews, Romance, YA / 0 Comments

Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.

When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.

 

Not gonna lie, I didn’t think I was going to finish this. I’d initially sort of given up at around the 75% stage. I set it aside, read something else, and then y’know what? I wanted to finish it. 
It had nothing to do with the story that I put it aside, no. It was more..the writing style? To me it felt quite stiff and fancy, like it wouldn’t flow well enough for me to imagine. I had trouble imagining the scenes sometimes, so I’d have to read it aloud and that got a bit tedious after a while (mostly because I ended up losing my voice! lol) But I pushed through.
The story was great, I loved the idea of a girl named Alice being the inspiration for the original Alice in Wonderland and that after her initial visit, things changed, warped to become something gruesome. Like the flowers looking like zombies and the White Rabbit being all skeleton and “rabid.” And that things aren’t as simple as you think they are. Generations down the line and the secrets get deeper.
The Caterpillar was human-ish and was charming and clever. Complete contrast to the original, which is probably a good thing. Haha. I kind of felt he was a mix of caterpillar and the mad hatter. I know the Hatter was someone different but he wasn’t in it as much so…Yeah.
Now despite all the likes, I have some dislikes. Which is mostly why I only rated it 3/3.5 stars. Jeb. Ew! Jeb! What an arsehole! He might be all “You’re my everything” toward Alyssa but seriously? He was obnoxious, controlling, patronising, and just over all ugh. I’ll admit, I liked him at the beginning. I thought he’d be a decent love interest, but no. His true colours shone bright and skewed to become something hideous. Now, Morpheus. Let’s just say he won me over in the end, but I did have my doubts. Yes he’s manipulative and sly, deceiving and deceptive, but man was he charming. I think he could have charmed the pants of a grasshopper. Maybe he even has. (inside joke.)
In any case, it was a real war between controlling and deception. Which one would win? I don’t know, I kinda wanna read the sequel just because I did like Morpheus. Alyssa wasn’t as much of a flake as she could have been, but she wasn’t exactly warrior princess, either. She stood her ground but she also let Jeb walk all over her and treat her like she was a child, and with zero respect, yet she was all “oh i love him” like seriously girl, where’s your reality check? Anyway, I guess she’s one character I don’t dislike, but I’m not exactly loving her. The banter between Morpheus and Jeb was golden, though.
I liked the whole madness aspect to her mother and how it was all in the ‘genes’. I know people claim it was portrayed wrong, but sometimes fiction is fiction and there’s a certain element of interpretation involved, so y’know…suck it. Never the less, it intrigued me, and it’s just a shame all that didn’t last. 
The truths come out in a flurry of angst and flirting and it’s so…fun. I just, have I said how much I love Morpheus? No? Well I do. I mean, yes he was everything I said above but at least he was INTERESTING! The secondary characters were fun but didn’t really stick with me, though Gossamer nearly came close, she wasn’t what we expected. 
I wish I could have rated this higher, and maybe I would have if the writing hadn’t kept me from getting sucked in as much as I’d liked. Maybe the sequel will be better? Who knows.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads

Posted 29 March, 2016 by katheryn13 in Blogging Challenges, Contemporary, Fantasy, Reviews, Romance, Sci-Fi, Supernatural, Top Ten Tuesday, Updates, YA / 2 Comments

 

 

Good day, all. Here’s another TTT going and this one is about 10 Of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads (Or Ten Of The Best Books I’ve Read Recently if you don’t 5 star stuff…or you could do 5 of my latest five star reads & five of my most disappointing or 1 star reads). This challenge is set by the wonderful people at The Broke and the Bookish 
I’ll do this in order or how I read them. From most recent to furthest…if that makes sense? Sigh.
1: Angels Twice Descending(Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, #10) by Cassandra Clare & Robin Wasserman – I mentioned this in my last post. I forgot to put the rating, though. I suck at this sometimes. Ha! I loved this final installment in the novellas. It was a wonderful ending to Simon’s time at Shadowhunter Academy. 

2: Pale Kings and Princes (Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, #6) by Cassandra Clare & Robin Wasserman – Again, this one was one of my faves from the novellas. Brilliant. I miss them already. Sigh.

 

 


 

3: This Raging Light by Estelle Laure – I adored this book. I didn’t even think I would when I first got it from NG and then later got it from the library. I read it so quick and it was so sweet and sad and everything. I love when books surprise me like that.

4: The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith – I guess I was on a contemporary streak at the time and I read this and loved it. Such a simple premise but so heartfelt and sad and happy and romantic…I love Jennifer’s books. Well, most of them. I’ve read 3 of them and they’ve been great.

 

 


5: Girl of Nightmares(Anna, #2) by Kendare Blake – I read the first of this duo a couple years ago, and I couldn’t believe it took me so long to get to this,but it was a joy to read and so pleasantly creepy. 

 

6: All Wrapped Up(Geek Girl, #1.5) by Holly Smale – Such a short novella but so so enjoyable. I wanted more. I can’t wait for Head Over Heels to come out in PB.

 

 

7: Illuminae (The Illuminae Files, #1) by Jay Kristoff and Amy Kaufman – What can I say about this that hasn’t been said by many people already? I LOVED this book and I am eagerly awaiting book 2, Gemina. It will surely be as mindblowing as Illuminae was. I might reread it soon, too.

8: You’re Never Weird on the Internet by Felicia Day – I actually got the audiobook of this and it was so much, so so much fun. She has a very quirky, interesting way of talking and brought this book to life in a way I wasn’t expecting. It took me a few days to get through it, but I found myself so saddened and inspired by what went on in her life so far. She’s brilliant!

 

 

 

 

9: Sapphire Blue(Precious Stone Trilogy, #2) by Kierstin Gier – The sequel to Ruby Red was just as great as I’d hoped. I love time travel stories and this didn’t disappoint, though there were characters that bugged me, but not in any unnatural way. Mostly I guessed they were meant to be annoying.

 

 

10: An Ember in the Ashes (An Ember in the Ashes, #1) by Sabaa Tahir – I was pleasantly surprised by this. Sure, there were moments that made me wonder why I’d rated it so high, but the overall story got me like WOAH. WOAH. WOAH. You should all go and read this. 

And so that’s it. I mean, I have loads more where that came from, because I seem to rate many books 5 stars. That’s just because if I have read it in a day or 2, or it left an imprint on my heart, then I loved it and it deserves a great score! 😀 
Let me know if you’ve read any of these and what you rated them! I’d love to know.

4 stars to The Young Elites by Marie Lu

Posted 20 February, 2016 by katheryn13 in Fantasy, Reviews, Romance, Supernatural, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.

Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.

Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.

Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.

Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.

It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.

 

DISCLAIMER: THERE MAY BE MINOR SPOILERS. BE WARNED.

Review:

I enjoyed this book,  but it took me some time to get to that stage.  The story had a lot of potential, it was clear. But despite Adelina’s character being  dark and gritty, and a part of me wanted to know more about her, there was still something about her that wasn’t gelling with me.  She’s a malfetto yet she behaved so… Weirdly. You’d think, even at 16, she’d have more common sense but apparently not. I found myself practically screaming at her idiocy in this book and it was only the last few chapters where I could catch my breath and relax. But man, she was not an easy person to deal with.

The basis of this story is that a virus caused a lot of kids to get special powers. But because they get certain markings, they’re shunned by regular folk for not being normal and/or pretty. Adelina is one of those, since she has a nasty scar on her face. She’s nearly killed by the Inquisitors, but saved by the Daggers and from there learns to harness her powers and soon realises just how dangerous she really is. It’s quite… frightening, really. No, disturbing, is the better word. She has the ability to cast illusions on people, make them see things. She can disguise people and make them invisible if needed. It’s impressive. But before long things turn ugly and she’s losing control. 
Enzo is the Prince who became a Malfetto and therefore shunned by his family. His sister became Queen. I quite liked Enzo, even from the beginning. He had a typical mystery about him,  dark and brooding but not in an irritating way. In some ways he reminded me of the Darkling from the Grisha trilogy. Same sort of personality and I mean… He’s a prince. Not that that’s the reason. Certain things happen that really broke my heart, and I’m seriously hoping book 2 corrects these issues because…I just…NO! 

The romance between Enzo and Adelina was purrrrrfectly sweet and sort of sexy, in a deadly weapon kind of way. It helped balance out the crazy, for sure, and gave me hope.
All the while through this book I was just like ‘Adelina needs to stop being stupid. Before I throw this book.’ and believe me, I came close a few times.
There are a few moments where she’s threatened by the lead Inquisitor, Teren. Who, ugh, I despise! I mean, there are some bad guys that I can tolerate, but he was just irritating to the max. Such a hypocrite, too.

 I can understand if you’re threatened, you’d be scared and not know who to turn to,  but Adelina had new friends now. She had the Daggers. And all the whole she acted like she couldn’t tell anyone.  I was fuming. If she told them, they could help her.  She kept on complaining if they found out, they’d kill her. But I was like ‘yeah but lying to them and then them finding out, they really will kill you.’ and I figured if she went to them for help, they’d help her through it. But ugh. This girl drove me nuts.

I’m glad things sort of seemed to even out at the end, even though the events that brought her to that stage were devastating. The epilogue brings hope, and wonder, and dammit…I told myself I wasn’t going to read the Rose Society because Adelina irritated me too much, but maybe I will just to see how things pan out. ugh. Decisions. 

This is one of those books where despite what I’ve said in this review, I still rate it pretty high. The fact that I didn’t put it down half way and stuck it out and then was more intrigued and it broke my heart and set it on fire and let the ashes fall through the stupid fingers of revenge…yeah anyway, I recommend this to anyone that has a steel heart and has patience to battle through because it gets SO good and…I should go now before I start crying.

Bout of Books 15 | Day 4

Posted 8 January, 2016 by katheryn13 in Adventure, Audiobooks, Mystery, Reading Challenges, Reviews, Romance, Sci-Fi, Updates, YA / 0 Comments

Bout of Books

Day 4

January 7th

Book I’m reading: A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Pages read: FINISHED! (I continued from page 127 to the end at 370 or something. I took turns between reading and listening via audiobook. Rated it 4 stars.
This book was a whirlwind. Seriously. Just when you thought you knew what was happening, something changed and you were back to square one. I was seriously starting to hate Theo, and then something was revealed and I didn’t hate him so much. And then other stuff happened and man, I can’t wait to read the sequel. I like books that keep me on my toes, although it can get annoying because I don’t like surprises. So there’s that…
Haha.
As for my next read, I’m getting to a point where I might have burned myself out, reading so much in such a short space of time. I had hoped to finish another book by the end of Sunday. Sigh. I’ll let you know tomorrow what happens.

It’s Review Time! #YA

Posted 2 January, 2016 by katheryn13 in Audiobooks, Contemporary, Funny, Middle Grade, Reviews, Romance, Sci-Fi, Updates, YA / 1 Comment

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a good Christmas and are ready for another cracking year. I hope 2016 lives up to its expectations.

Okay folks, it has been far too long since I did a review. So instead I’m doing mini reviews to keep it short and sweet. I have 7 books to tell you about, and so I guess I better start!

 

25877135Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

This book. What can I say that hasn’t already been said in other reviews? I mean, this blew my mind. I went into this completely blind, other than knowing it was a sci-fi ‘space opera’ as many called it. I didn’t know the premise and I was glad. I think if I’d known, I might have been scared off. Illuminae is full of wonder, tragedy, hope, fear, creepy artificial intelligent ready to destroy everyone onboard a spaceship. Yes. That’s basically it. You won’t want to read anything else after because nothing can come close to satisfying your needs like this can. I just…mindblown. I can’t wait for book 2!

5 stars

Design K

11351181The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus #1) by Rick Riordan

I have read all of the Percy Jackson books, and I’d heard this spin off series was actually better…and I couldn’t agree more. I think I prefer this, to be honest. Maybe it was the change in writing style, or the different characters, but I just became more sucked into what was going on and everything stood out clearer. I didn’t get bored and I rooted for each character like they were my own friends. My love for Greek Mythology just got stronger!

4 stars

Design K

12139510Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Well, took my long enough, eh? I never in a month of Sundays thought I’d actually read this. I’ve tried many times but something about the story just put me off. But I was intrigued and determined, so I gave it another shot and absolutely loved it. If I forget that she’s not completely human. There was plenty of mystery and longing romance and just the right amount of sci-fi to keep anyone happy. I can now see what all the fuss is about. I have Scarlet ready and waiting. Yuss!!!

4 stars

Design K

18476697Firecracker by David Iserson

I picked this up one day while in Waterstones, and I’ll admit it was mostly the cover that got me interested. It’s one of those modern day contemporary stories that didn’t get tons of brilliant reviews but surprised me once I’d read it. I thoroughly enjoyed its quirks and how sarcastic and cynical the main lead, Astrid, is. She kind of reminded me of…well, me. I don’t think it’s for everyone, but if you appreciate snarky comebacks and teenage angst and generally spoilt brats being taught a lesson…then you’re ready for this.

4.5 stars

Design K

26224571All Wrapped Up (Geek Girl 1.5) by Holly Smale

A cute Christmassy read that fully exceeded my needs. I love the Geek Girl series and this was just so sweet and (really) short. Don’t let the number of pages fool you. Haha. I was like “wait? that’s it?” but then there’s a Q&A and also a short story that the author wrote for World Book Day. If you’re already a fan of Geek Girl then you’ll love this. If you haven’t read the other books, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy this as a side seasonal treat. 🙂

5 stars

Design K

20910157Yes Please by Amy Poehler

I got the audiobook from audible. I occasionally like listening to memoirs, because I’m not really one to buy them as in the past I just don’t get around to reading them. I went into this not really knowing much about Amy, and I came out a fully fledged fan. She is funny, smart, hard working, and her memoir shows as much. Her story of how she got to where she is today is truly awe-inspiring. She also gives advice and tidbits on what not to do in certain circumstances. The audio includes bits from special guest speakers like Patrick Stewart, Kathleen Turner, Seth Meyers and a bunch of others. Even if you haven’t been a fan of hers to begin with, trust me, this will change your mind.

4 stars

Design K

and finally, my most recent read:

16299169Son of Neptune (Heroes of Olympus #2) by Rick Riordan

Just as good, if not better than the first book. I did find, however, there were bits that I found a tad slow, (heavy description, etc) so I had help from the audiobook I bought with my credit, and that pushed me along. I finished this with 3 hours to spare of 2015. Cutting it close, I know. I needed to reach my Goodreads challenge goal. Well, I sort of did. If you count changing the goal at the last minute. 😛

Over all I can’t really find anything specifically wrong. I’m already reading book 3, so that must tell you what I think. I feel like I’m in the Demi-god world and I don’t want to leave.

4 stars.

 

Thanks for reading. 🙂 Have you read any of these? What did you think?

#Review: 4 stars to Graceling by Kristin Cashore #YA #Fantasy

Posted 30 August, 2015 by katheryn13 in Epic Fantasy, Fantasy, Paranormal, Reviews, Romance, YA / 0 Comments

Deadly Grace

Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight–she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graces as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug.

When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change.

She never expects to become Po’s friend.

She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace–or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away..

Beware of spoilers!

Review: 

 It took me some time to fully get into this story. The first couple of chapters, to me, were full of info–dumping. I was confused, lost, on who was who and what King belonged to what land, etc etc. So it was a nice surprise, once that had passed, to get stuck in and enjoy it. 

Katsa is a very strong character, but at times I thought overly so. She needed to stop being so self-reliant sometimes because it was very annoying. So what if she had help from someone? Or had someone to protect her? Stop being so stubborn! 

In any case, she grew on me, and I found I could tolerate her more. I loved Po, too, and how he seemed to be her equal in most things. He balanced out her annoyances and I thought their relationship was inevitable, sweet, and slow burning, which made it even more interesting. Given that she was always “me woman. me need no man” in her behaviour, I found it funny when she ended up changing her perspective on things.

When she cut her hair, however, I nearly had to throw the book away. It completely tore me away from the character, the story, and had little to do with her action and more because of my dislike for boy hair cuts on girls, and ruined the image of her in my head. So basically, I had to reimagine her, though I chose at times to ignore it. I just had her with a pixie cut and not…what she had. *shudder*

Another slight annoyance I had with the book is how many times they’d say “Well,” at the beginning of a sentence/dialogue. Oh my god! I was ready to throttle someone. I know it was the author’s choice to have that as a story trait, but holy crap, I was getting infuriated. haha. But yeah, eventually I noticed it not happening so much and I calmed down.

I loved the world building, the scenery, the camping! If I could camp even a quarter as well as Katsa can, then I’d be well on my way to being awesome. She could do everything! I mean, it was unreal. Catching fish with her barehands, scaling snowed over mountains with a person on her back in  freezing temperatures?! Okay so there were moments where I suspected of plot holes, as bits were not plausible, but I guess that’s the fun of story telling. It’s not reality and can be twisted. 

I’m disappointed that the companion to this isn’t about Katsa. I’ve never been much of a fan of companion novels for this reason: it’s rarely from a POV I like.

I rated this four stars because it deserved it, despite the irritations I had. I really didn’t like Leck *shudders* and his Grace was awful. I could really imagine how terrifying it would be. The Graces for others were interesting, and I like how it’s just personal traits in real life, but exaggerated. Except for the being able to hear thoughts. That’s one I’d like to have. So yeah, if you haven’t already read Graceling, I recommend it. 🙂

#Review: 4.5 Stars to P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han #YA #Contemporary @jennyhan @scholasticuk

Posted 18 August, 2015 by katheryn13 in Contemporary, Reviews, Romance, YA / 0 Comments

Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?

In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing

 

Publisher: Scholastic Press

Pages: 337

Review:

Since ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ Lara Jean has fallen for Peter Kavinsky and is happy. Though she doesn’t really understand how Peter feels.

I loved how simple this story was, even when there was things going on, it didn’t feel too complicated or hard to understand. Some stories can make me feel dizzy with concentration.

Lara and Peter’s relationships is so sweet, but with Gen (Peter’s ex) always on the scene, I couldn’t blame Lara for being paranoid/upset/worried about whether Peter was still into Gen. What with him always seeming to talk to Gen and Lara would see them hugging, you wonder what is going on!

There’s nothing like a good old contemporary teen romance to make you glad you’re not having to deal with that yourself. Ha Ha. But all in all, I really enjoyed this story. It seemed quite bittersweet, especially when one of Lara’s old crushes comes back to town after replying to her letter. Remember the letters’ her sister sent out without Lara’s permission? Yeah. Kitty annoyed me more than the first book, mostly because she kept on being judging and trying to keep Lara with Peter together even when things were his fault, but she did come around for me in the end. For a ten year old, she’s really quite wise.

One thing that disappointed me was the lack of Josh. I mean, for a next door neighbour, he was awfully non existent. I know that was because he and Margot had split, but you know…I like Josh.

But John Ambrose McClaren.

What a hottie. *swoon* And that’s where the drama really gets started.

I wish there was a third book because I’d love to know more, what happens next in Lara Jean’s world. I just…it’s so easy to get lost in it, and imagine being there. I found myself not wanting the book to end, and I love (and hate) when that happens.

This summer seems to me to be another contemporary filled season. Bring it on!
