Warning: This is more of an angry and frustrated rant than a proper review. Forewarned is forearmed.

Initial reaction after reading the book


What the hell did I just read? It has to be the crappiest, silliest, the most pathetic book I've EVER read. Urgh! It was like reading the diary entry of a 12 year old teenager obsessesd with her boyfriend, with no fucking priorities at all.

Oh, and just look at the average rating-4.11 Four point fucking one? Seriously people? Why would anyone even bother compl...more

After reading this: "Amber is still emotionally scarred from the abuse she suffered at the hands of her father. Together they make an unlikely pair. " I thought it would be an interesting read, knowing how a teenage girl, who had been molested at a young age, would get through it and become a strong, confident young lady.

What did I get?
He groaned and tightened his grip, pulling me so that I was completely on top of him. I could feel his erection pressing between my legs. I gasped at the feel of

This book is terrible. Absolutely terrible. I had a really long review written which included lots of quotes to back up my opinion, but then my power went out and I lost it (THANKS TROPICAL STORM ISAAC!). I'm re-writing most of it, but I don't feel like digging around my Kindle to get the quotes again. Sorry!

Like I said, this book is terrible. The plot is terrible. The characters are terrible. The writing is terrible. The editing is REALLY terribl...more

Almost 4 stars... maybe 3.5 :S

"It's always been you; it'll always be you, Angel."

My goodness I felt torn about how to rate this book. There were literally times where I was grinning, and awww-ing and proclaiming my whole-hearted love for the book... but then, there were times where I'd cringe, roll my eyes or want to throttle the characters. I kept going back and forth between 2.5 and 4.5 stars. It was a tough call because the good parts were reeeeally heart-meltingly good but the inconsiste...more

Aug 22, 2012 KrisTris (KC) marked it as abandoned
I just cannot bring myself to finish this book! (I truly hate not finishing a book.) It has amazing ratings, so maybe I just expected too much.Since I didn't finish, I will refrain from rating this book, but I'll list a few reasons for abandonment:

1. The heroine, Amber, is incredibly immature, even for a 16 year old. I just found it hard to take her seriously. She is also completely unable to recognize the obviousness of EVERY situation. I felt bad about the abuse she suffered as a child, but I...more

Some books are meant to teach us lesson. Some, to give us information. Others, to provide entertainment. After reading The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window , I thought "Where do we put this horrible book?" Because it is neither of the three.

Well, okay. It might provide entertainment for those who seek for this kind of story. But to me it's a big no no. This was a horrible and infuriating read. Kind of insulting to the female and male population who were looked up to be slut and man-whore by t...more

What a gorgeous gorgeous book!!! I started reading it in the afternoon and refused to go to sleep until it was finished. I’d like to think that I’m over books set in high school but this book proved me wrong. It had me wrapped around its sweet little ‘fingers’ from beginning to end and I think it had everything to do with the loveable characters. I was looking for an angst-free read and, for most of the book, that is exactly what I got.

The story centres on three characters - Amber, her brother J...more

4 STARS out of 5
Genre: Mature YA Romance

The Boy Who Sneaks in my Bedroom Window is an adorable lovestory held by an undertone of darkness. It has teenage Lust, Love, Friendship and Sweet words from a HOT guy that make this book so irresistible. Needless to say I LOVED IT!!!


Amber and Jake Walker live in fear of their abusive father. Just one wrong move can cause him to get angry and go ballistic. One night after an horrific beating eight year old Amber is in her room crying whe...more

Let me just start off by saying that the max rating this book could have gotten out of me was 4 stars. It lost 1 star automatically for all the grammatical errors (and believe me, there were plenty). I’ve tried to hide all spoilers but a few may have leaked through in the review.

The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window sounded so promising to me. A brother and sister are abused by their father. Brother’s best friend sees the sister crying in her bedroom one night when they are young and he climbs...more

First up, let me say that i read the Wattpad version of this story by Kirsty and i was BLOWN AWAY!!!! Just the type of YA romance that i love! I'm off to Smashwords to buy the edited version of this story but i don't think that it could get any better! A real 5 star read (in my opinion)!! Anyone that enjoys a good YA romance NEEDS to get this!!! When i read the version that Kirsty has published (which is now up on Amazon and Smashwords), i'll leave a proper review!

Congrats, Ms Moseley... the res...more

Amber dan Jake punya ayah yang abusive. Suatu malam, saat Amber menangis di tempat tidurnya setelah dipukuli sang ayah, datang seorang bocah lelaki yang menenangkan tangisnya dan menemaninya tidur sampai pagi. Bocah itu adalah Liam, tetangga sebelah rumah juga sahabat Jake.
Cerita maju 8 tahun kemudian.
Orang tua Amber telah berpisah setelah si ayah mencoba memperkosa Amber (untunglah bisa digagalkan oleh Jake dan Liam). Kejadian itu meninggalkan trauma pada Amber. Dia tak nyaman dengan sentuhan b...more

I am at a complete loss here. And in more ways than one. Goodreads reviews rarely let me down. So when I saw that this book had 4+ rating I was totally on board.
You lie. People of Goodreads. You lie, and you lied good.

The book had a lot of potential. I really liked the idea of after a traumatic life, Ambers neighbor has been coming in and sleeping with her every night. The thought sweet. The story poorly executed.

I need to google this author and find out if the name is a pen name for a 15 year...more

I 'm really happy that i read it.
I loved Jake and Liam they were both perfect..
Amber was ok but reckless in some situation..

Okay, I feel like I'm committing a crime by giving this story a one star. So, before I get to reviewing this book, I'd like to point out that I'm familiar with this author on wattpad, and am quite fond of her writing style with her other books on wattpad, and a fan. But this particular book didn't do it for me, it felt amateur at best.

I could deal with grammar errors because Hey! Everyone's human. I think reading on wattpad has prepared me to be completely oblivious (selectively so) when it com...more

Creo que este es uno de mis nuevos favoritos.

Esta historia es todo lo que siempre quise de un libro romántico, todo. En realidad lo amo con cada partecita de mi raro corazón y lo amare por siempre. Desde un principio juzgue a este libro por su portada y su titulo, pero el corazón dibujado en el vidrio es demasiado cursi, asco. No quería leerlo. Pero desde ayer estoy de humor para leer romance hasta que vomite corazones y flores. ¿Por donde empiezo? Bueno, les contare esta es una de esas histori...more

Holy roller coaster!

Liam was fantastic. FANTASTIC!! There was so much lovey dovey stuff (my favorite) so I was swooning and sighing constantly.

Fyi to the younger crowd, there was quite a bit of language and sex 'stuff', but I really enjoyed it. Some parts were definitely hard to read because they were very heartwrenching and upsetting, but real.

Buy this book. All I'm saying.

I can't believe this book is getting 5 star reviews!
i read the book on wattpad and didn't think it was that good even in comparison to the standard of books uploaded to wattpad. The writing style is so amature, the plot isn't structured, the actual setting is confusing due to mix of british and american vocab. AND FOR GOODNESS SAKE, IF SOMEONE HAS PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS THEY SHOULD SEE A THERAPIST, NOT RELY ON THEIR BOYFRIEND TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS. The fact that she started having sex , and th...more

I read the wattpad version and seriously I don't understand why it have so many good reviews. The book was so bad it was like reading a bad fanfiction written by a 13 years old. The beginning was OK, but then the author keeps adding more and more crap...

Sorry but I didn't even finish it. That bad.

SPOILER ALERT:
She was almost raped by her dad so she was traumatized and couldn't even stand be touched by guy and yet she's in every chapter in a sexual situation with the guy. She even get pregnant a...more

Awwww I totally loved this book. It has a little bit of everything in it and it all just works. Amber and Jake have both had a really hard life, their father was scum and made sure they never forgot it Amber was traumatized by it, she can not stand the touch of another person other then her mom, Jck and Liam. Jack and his best friend Liam beat their dad up and told him to never come back, the only thing that made Amber keep going and sane and safe was Liam every night since she was 8 he would cr...more

Original review can be found on Read Runner.

I read this book because the synopsis seemed intriguing: Amber and her brother Jake grew up with an abusive father. Years after their father left, Amber is still dealing with the effects of her trauma. Part of her support system is her brother’s best friend, Liam, who comforted her years ago and continues to comfort her nightly.

Unfortunately, the synopsis was so far from reality. I was stunned at how a book marketed as a YA novel had so many sexual ref...more

That said, and call me crazy, but I still liked this book. A lot. I would classify it as a B-movie that you simply love.

I don't know how I managed to finish this book.

Note: This review may contain spoilers.

It was unrealistic and annoying. I just had to put it down and read it some other time. Yet, I still manage to finish it though I'm on the verge to give it up by 50%. (Yes, I have a very long patience.) Some people liked this book, sorry but this book is not the way I expected. I'm really disappointed with this book. ugghhh. my frustration kicks in.

Here are all my frustrations:

Going by GR reviews of this book you either love it or you hate it.
I fall into the I loved it category.
Yes it could have been written a little better. More depth to the story. Less cheesiness but I found that it worked for me.
I just took a 13 hr bus trip and struggled to sleep because all I could think about was reading more of this book to know what happens!

Amber and Jake are siblings. Their father was an abusive asshole.
Jake is very overprotective of his sister.

I read The Boy Who Sneaks in my Window on Wattpad one day when I was really, truly, utterly bored, and I needed some stupid fanfiction to lift up my spirits. The book was also featured on HarperTeen's Inkpop as the readers' favorite book (to be viewed by the editors at the end of the month along with four other books)before the website merged with Figment.

The Boy Who Sneaks in my Window (somehow, I find that there is something grammatically wrong with the title) is bullshit. I'm serious....more
