Icing on the Lake
by Kirsten (with help from Crystal, Jones, and Emma)
1. Survive the month at my sister's house. Survive my 3-yr-old nephew and crazy sister.
2. Learn to ice skate better. Or not fall down. Or just get a cuter skating outfit.
3. Find hockey-playing, winter-loving hottie. and invite him to the weekend cabin trip (aka "groundhog getaway") with everyone.
As much as I like reading fiction romance, sometimes it's very 'relaxing' to switch from having to understand a complicated relationship to enjoying a typical teen romance, after all it's is more realistic and we could relate to them more.
Summer romance/fling has always been what I've read for non-fiction romance, but ever since Rachel Hawthorne's Snowed In and Love on the lifts, I started to develop a kind of preference towards winter romance as ...more
I also liked that the main character was older, which is something I haven't experienced much of in YA.
Now I know what you are thinking, I am so not into romance but if you read this book it's not all about romance, sure the main character ends up with a guy and that is the main ide ...more
Cover: 5/5 - Amazing artwork and graphic design. Love the fonts use, not so much the slogan.
Icing on the Lake by Catherine Clark is a book about friendships and first loves. Originally I had purchased the book believing it was a Christmas book. It is not a Christmas story which dissapointed me a little however part of the beginning is technically during the holiday season. The book starts off with New Year's Eve where the main character, Kirsten decides to make a list of her resolut

To me it seems as if Kirsten is on a quest to find this thing called ‘a boyfriend’ and if she doesn’t find one within a certain amount of time sh ...more
I picked up this book because some of my friends recommended a book similar to this one and I liked it so I decided to give th ...more
This book is about Kirsten, a senior in high school, who goes to live with her older sister, Gretchen, for a couple of months. Gretchen is a divorced 24 year old with a 3 year old son named Brett, so when she fell and broke her leg skiing someone had to come help with things around the house. Lucky for her, Kirsten was nice e ...more
I think this shows that love is blind. Or that you don't have to search for love and that it'll come eventually and naturally. I think that both books also show that friendships can lead to relationships because in both books the guy and the girl were just frie ...more
Before start reviewing it, I have to say that this plot has one thing that I love: when the main character (Kirsten) likes other guy and is not even aware of the "perfect guy" love and his hints of showing this to her.
This is exactly what happened here! Kirsten was very into Sean and absolutely clueless that who actually truly liked and cared about her was his brother, Conor (AWESOME), even though he kept showing her that he was much better.
Overall, I really love this book. It's so well ...more
Content: a handful of language; a boy and girl are forced to spend a night together due to a storm, but nothing happens.
this book makes you explore love in different ways. to sum up this book, you basically fall in love with a person that you dont expect. i love this book, it is a light read and you'll find yourself tiggling with emotions over and over and over again. :)
Instead of a witty, flirtatious banter, we get awkward exchanges between the lead guy and girl, complete with extreme mood swings, annoying jump-to-conclusions, defensive comebacks, and wrong impressions and assumptions.
To be honest, I rooted for Conner from the beginning. Yeah, he was a little rude at some times but I think that just made him even more irresistible for me. I didn't really like Sean. I mean, yes, he was a pretty cool guy but in the end he only cared about himself and his reputation. So I am happy that Kirsten didn't end up with him.
One's hot, cute and friendly
Another's obnoxious, hot, and unfriendly...
This book brought so much laughter to me as the characters makes jokes and their amazing comebacks. I love how girls become flustered and tongue-tied when talking to guys, it just seems so cute. I really love this book, full of comedy, romance, and adventure!

I love writing for pretty much the same audiences.
