L'été où ma vie a changé (Laguna Cove & Cruel Summer)
À quinze ans, Dorothy se prépare pour le plus bel été de sa vie: au programme, des journées entières avec ses amis et, pourquoi pas, une histoire d'amour avec le plus beau garçon du lycée! Mais le rêve tourne au cauchemar quand ses parents décident de l'envoyer chez sa tante Tinos, une île grecque perdue au fin fond des Cyclades. Adieu les plages...more
Mon avis en français : http://betweendandr.blogspot.com/2012...
Cet ouvrage comprend deux romans qui sont totalement distincts l'un de l'autre, donc deux histoires complètement différentes mais qui ont toutes les deux un point commun : l'action se déroule en plein été, à proximité de la mer (sur une petite île grecque pour la première et sur la côte californienne pour l'autre) ce qui en fait une excellente lecture en cette période d'été....more
"Laguna Cove": I really really didn't like this book. I hated how there was really no main character. Of course it was Anne, but the story seemed to focus too much on the other characters, so it didn't really seem like she was in the spotlight. Speaking of Anne, I h...more
This was a quick and easy read. This is the first book by Alyson Noel I’m reading, just because I happened to find it on my shelf and decided to check it out. It was quick easy, fun read. Sure there are some points I liked and others I didn’t but overall a good book to wind down from reading something heavier.
We start off by meeting Anne who has recently moved to California from CT to live with her father. Here she meets a large group of friends who have been friends forever...more
They're both about adjusting to what seem to be less-than-optimal circumstances (although can I just say that moving to California or spending a summer in Greece both seem pretty awesome to me?) and they're both incredibly fun. I liked Anne better...more

Overall Rating: 3.0
Forever Summer first attracted me with it's beautiful cover before I saw that it contained two novels Alyson Noel wrote before she wrote her Immortals series: Laguna Cove and Cruel Summer. Despite the beautiful cover, however, the two novels Forever Summer contained didn't impress me one bit.
Laguna Cove: click here.
Cruel Summer: click here.
Like Cruel Summer. The main character started off annoying and unlikable as well, but it was a cool format, and a cute plot, though the writing felt a little forced. This book made me decide to read The Immortals Series by Alyson. ;)
O stars for Laguna Cover (first time for that)
3 stars (on the Goodreads scale, not my blog's) for Crue...more
The first book, Laguna Cove is about a girl named Anne who moves half way across the country after her parents nasty divorce. Anne is dumped in an abandoned home and hates it. Let me say the both these stories deal with a divorce and finding peace in it. Anne had to learn to deal with her mom's new relationship and her dad's career. The parents I felt were selfish. For me,...more
Do you want to read a cliche, corny romance that's not even set in summer? Perfect, then read Laguna Cove. There are a million things I didn't like about this book. After finishing Laguna Cove, it really stopped me from reading Cruel Summer because the first story sucked. A lot. It's the typical romance story: New girl has hot boyfriend, they fight, they make up yay they live happily ever after! Exept, the thing about this is Chris and Anne, they don't even make up. One chapter they're ignoring...more
Cruel Summer, however, had a WORSE beginning. It was very hard to get into the story for a while.
