First thoughts : Quick read for young adult readers. Story moved too fast. Not enough character development. Unrealistic elements to the story.

Synopsis; Our main character Ava is getting ready to go to her high school graduation with her best friend, her boyfriend and his twin. Ava is excited to get on with her life away from high school as she and the gang are planning to live together while attending the same college. However things turn for the worse when the gang get to graduation. Sudden
Menos mal que no tenía muchas expectativas sobre A Summer to Remember, porque hubiese acabado decepcionada. Pero cumplió con lo que estaba esperando: algo no muy complicado que leer, ligero y sin drama.

Sin embargo creo que todo es demasiado precipitado. El mismo día que su novio rompe con Ava, ella está devastada. Pero por la noche conoce a Adrian y ya siente sentimientos hacia él. El fin de semana que siguiente ya se han confesado y poco tiempo después Adrian ya le está pidiendo a Ava que se m

Fue una lectura entretenida, pero sin demasiadas espectativas; Quizas me hubiera gustado mas si la relacion de los protagonistas fuera mas lenta, senti como que la autora acelera toda la trama.
Mi novio me deja y esa misma noche conozco a otro chico y ya siento cosas profundas por el El libro es corto y perfecto para una tarde, pero senti como que la autora no profundiza en los detalles importantes de los personajes.
El final tampoco me termino de convencer, supongo que tendre que esperar el segun

The Low Down: The four-year-long relationship between Ava and Jason is over. Breaking up with her right before their high school graduation ceremonies, Ava is shocked to discover that Cally, the girl that caused the on again/off again portion of their relationship, is back in town. This was supposed to be the best summer of their lives, and it has turned into something else completely.

Then Ava meets Adrian at a frat party. There is an undeniable connection between them, but he’s leaving for a dr

Wow. Definitely one of the weirdest books I've read in awhile. So, sooooo many things that I just didnt get. First, Ava's 18 and this guys 22? What on earth do a high school graduate and a college graduate have in common? They almost never spoke, and the book was mostly filled with Ava and Lilly's conversations. Also, she moves in with him after 2 dates? And her parents are all like "Whatevs" about it? I know for a fact, 18 or not, my parents would not let me move in with a dude I only knew for ...more

Este libro se sumó a mi lista de descartados por una sencillísima razón, ese final. Final muy visto, de esos que siempre abren la puerta a una continuación llena de dramas, posibles infidelidades, ese tipo de cosas. Y yo paso de eso . Pero también descarté leer este libro porque la historia no me inspiraba nada. Y todo lo demás, razones de peso considerable para no darle una oportunidad a este libro lo resume muy bien Sandra en su reseña. ...more

Since this book is about summer, reading this can be compared to a time when you first set your feet on a beach you've never been before. You don't know the people, the twists and turn of the place and how the waves on that part of the ocean would come to you.

Whenever I embark on a new reading that is always the exact feeling that I get but each experience is greatly different from the other. A Summer To Remember is a read that is filled with never ending unexpected turn of events. I know, I alr

Adrian doesn't waste any time in going after what he wants and I find that extremely attractive, "okay, this may sound strange since we just met, but I want you to know something. I like you. I don't know what happened the night we met, but something told me you were different than any girl I've ever met. There was just something I can't really explain, but I have to tell you because we leave tomorrow and I don't know if I'll get another chance. I knew I would regret it if I didn't.

It's a nice and fresh reading, a different story but it goes too fast, doesn't have an end and there is no book 2 yet, so it is a disappointment.

I hate it when models on the cover don't represent the characters in the book:

"I always loved this top because it fit all my best features perfectly, but wasn’t too revealing in the chest. Not like I had much to show, anyway."

If Ava doesn't have big breasts, why does the model looks like she's a B or a even a C?

A model so thin with huge breasts, is out of proportion.
I'm not saying she isn't pretty it's just not reality.

Coming from a girl who has very small breasts

I have to say I loved this book!! I love Adrian he is just so perfect! and I love how Ava didn't just get stuck to Jason, I get annoyed with female characters who the male is trying to push away and they are like no I love him,can't love no one else. Not so real life! They are a lot fishes on the pond, lol. Can't wait for book 2!

-El libro es muy tranquilo y relajado, y muy de verano. Siento que todo fue muy apresurado en la relación de Adrian y Ava. Pero no voy a negar que la disfrute, aunque no me gustó que se terminara así, pero siendo objetiva y tomando en cuenta que es una saga y la mayoría te deja así.

-El libro estuvo algo bueno, la verdad la protagonista no me gustó mucho, Adrian me tiene inquieta simplemente no salio nada malo de él, lo cual es extraño. Creo que esta historia no daba para continuar, la autora

Some parts are very unrealistic like whose parents would be so cool and open to someone your daughter just met. Mine would not! I can't even think I could ask my parents to move in with someone a month after my high school graduation!

Also, how can someone jump into a serious relationship that quick after a very tiring, on-off 4-year relationship? Hmmm. Don't you want to relive the easy-going single life first?

Am I too old for this kind of romance??? I used to love reading young love but the way

Seriously? This was the worst written book I've ever read. So amateur-like and a lot of cliches.
"i felt like a little kid on Christmas." Who writes that in books nowadays? Is that how it ends or is there a next book 'cause that was not good closure. Ava just met the guy and suddenly she's moving in with him? She doesn't come home for a few days and when she does she want's to move in with a guy she went on only two dates with and all her parents say is "we thought you were already living with hi

When the love of her life dumps her, and she moves in with her rebound guy two weeks later, something is wrong.

I understand that people jump into relationships, and I'm cool with that. Not judging here, but I don't buy it when she claims to already have a love of her life. This girl, Ava, claims that Jason is the love of her life, her safety net, her everything. He then dumps her graduation day. Then, the same evening, she runs into this Adrian guy. After knowing him for almost half an evening,

Quando comecei a ler este livro, ou quando tive a intenção de o ler, não me tinha apercebido de que o mesmo faz parte de uma série de livros, sendo este "A Summer to Remember" o primeiro volume.

É um livro do género New Adult em que conhecemos a Ava que é deixada pelo namorado no último dia do secundário e que conhece Adrian que é, diria eu, o príncipe encantado! Não sei qual foi a intenção da autora mas este Adrian é demasiado irreal no meu ponto de vista. Aliás, o livro todo, apesar de fofo, é

I was super excited to get the opportunity review A Summer to Remember! I couldn’t wait to dive in and read it.

As I was reading it I kept thinking, yep, it was what I was looking forward to! Ava was cute and sweet. She gets her heart broken graduation day and meets Adrian (cool name by the way!!!!) and they fall in love (yeah, not so much on the insta love, but I can deal with it. I was a little skeptical that her parents let her have as much freedom with Adrian (who had graduated college) as th

I had just finished Reasonable Doubt 2 yesterday and was looking for something to read. I had purchased this book when it was free I loved the cover of the book. So I decided to go ahead and read it. I loved it. I also finished it in one day. I am a little disappointed that it end ed in a cliff hanger. I went to buy the second book but it isn't available yet. Loved Ava and Adrian's romance. He is a keeper. I love the summer romance books.

When I started reading this book there was no mention that it was part of a series so it was a bit of a shock when it just ended, I assume from the title having seasons in there that there'll be four books one for each season but it would have been nice to know that before I started.
I liked the blurb for this book even though the cover is a little weird, she looks so uncomfortable laying like that with her arms by her side, anyway I digress I actually didn't mind this book and if it wouldn't hav

First impressions: I don't know that I'll finish this book. So far the story is pretty boring and basically a laundry list of things that are currently happening. The relationship between the main girl ( can't remember her name) and Adrien is progressing way too quickly. Based on other reviews it seems like there might be some interesting twists around the corner so I'll give it a little longer before I decide to give up. Hopefully their relationship becomes more interesting and not just so swee ...more

I have mixed emotions about this book. It was decent. The writing was good and there weren't mistakes to distract.

That being said, there were a few spots that lulled but I liked the story. The romance was great. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters too. Jessica did a great job developing wonderful characters.

I wanted to know what was going to happen with Ava and Adrian so bad!!!! And then. The book just ended. The story didn't resolve any loose ends at all. I was so disappointed. O

This book is really easy to read, but too fake.
Little girl falling so quickly in love with a big (and really hard to be real) boy.
Too girly for me, didn't like it so much and I really don't recomend it.
