Lisa You will love this book! One of my favorites from this year!

message 2: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Thanks, Lisa! I just clicked over & saw your review. Wow, more than 5 stars. I look forward to it. :)

message 3: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Point of Retreat is the sequel and it is just as good!

message 4: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Wow! I'm going to have to read this soon!

message 5: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Rachel-I really can't wait to see what you think of this book. Arlene, myself and Brandie have now all declared it a 5 for GR but would totally give it a 10 if the site allowed. :o)

message 6: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I'll try to get to this soon. I have to put my SMC read on hold til I'm done with The Golden Lily because it's a tour book and I have to get it done soon. I really want to read this one ASAP. :)

message 7: by Jenn (new)

Jenn I totally spaced that you were reading the 2nd BL book. :o) If you were reading the Monday book, you wouldn't be able to finish anything else as it's so dang long. lol I felt like I had gotten really far last night,then I look down and I barely got anywhere. HA! Are you liking book 2?? I'm thinking that was a dumb question..but just checking. :o)

message 8: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I'm liking it so far but I didn't get too far last night. I just got home from vacation late Sunday and had to go to work yesterday so when I got home I had to unpack and do laundry. Then I wrote a review and by the time I did all that it was 10pm!! I'm only to page 39 but tonight I plan on kicking some butt with the reading! :)

I'm going to pick up our SMC back up probably Wednesday or Thursday. Maybe get a little in at lunch since I didn't bring TGL to work. :)

message 9: by Eunice (new)

Eunice Hi Rachel! How far are you? Just finished it and I loved it! It was great and really heartwarming. :))

message 10: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Oh Eunice, I loved it too. I finished last night and then read the second one right after, staying up til 5am to finish. Thank goodness it's Sunday. I have all day to recoup. :)

message 11: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I'm done Jenn. Loved both of them. I was crying so much with both of them! I cried the whole last 50% of the second book!! I couldn't stop until I found out what happened. Perfect. I want an epilogue STAT! :)

message 12: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Rach- you stayed up ALL night and finished and then read book 2? LOL! I love it. That's what I do a lot. :o)

message 13: by Jenn (new)

Jenn "Omg! Why did she ignore it?!! Something could've been done!!" I can't even remember what this was about..

message 14: by Jenn (last edited May 20, 2012 02:00PM) (new)

Jenn I didn't cry in book 1 but I totally balled in book 2. There's a 3rd book coming out in Eddie's POV. (view spoiler) :o)

message 15: by Jenn (new)

Jenn I love this from the author about her new car:
(view spoiler) This is in spoiler mode for those who haven't read book 2 yet..

message 16: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I didn't know we're getting more! So excited!

This: Omg! Why did she ignore it?!! Something could've been done! is because (view spoiler)

message 17: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Ahhhhh yes! Now I get it. ;o) I was just looking at Colleen Hoovers website and it looks like she's writing another book. Not one for the Slammed series, but just another book in general ...so yay! Something else to look forward to by this author. Makes me Butterflyingly HAPPY! lol

message 18: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Yep, totally Butterflyingly happy! Can't wait. I loved Kiersten! Too smart for her own good. :)

message 19: by Jenn (new)

Jenn She was a cutie!! I loved her even more in book 2. :o)

message 20: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Chanda it was sooo good! :)

message 21: by Jasprit (new)

Jasprit I've been reading such fantastic reviews for this and now another one! You seriously know how to bump a book up my tbr pile with those amazing quotes! Fab review Rachel! :)

message 22: by Heidi (new)

Heidi It's wonderful that you connected so well with the characters, Rachel.

message 23: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Thank you Jasprit. I think you'll really like this one. I can't believe it was the author's debut. :)

Heidi, I hope you like it as much as I did if you pick it up. :)

message 24: by Heidi (new)

Heidi I was just looking it up for 2.99 I can't resist. I love finding great reads for under three bucks!

message 25: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ I know! I love my kindle for that reason. That and the "buy it with one click" button, although that sort of gets me in trouble! I get a little trigger happy! :)

JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko I totally get trigger happy with the one click button.

message 27: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ At this rate JoJo, I'll be reading into the next year with all the books I have now! Lol!! Dangerous button! :)

message 28: by Jenn (new)

Jenn I'm with you Rachel in the book department keeping me busy in to next year.

I'm definitely guilty of the trigger happy finger as well. Having a kindle is dangerous! lol Heck any e-reader for anyone is dangerous. Tooooo easy to say I. WANT. IT. NOW. :o)

JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko My problem is if I buy books ahead of time I usually don't go back and read them. So I try and be careful only to buy when I am ready to read the book. For me one book is shinier than the next.

message 30: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ It's so nice though to be able to buy it and read it in seconds. Especially for sequel books. When you get done with the first you can buy & read the second right away rather than having to go to the bookstore & buy it. :)

message 31: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Yes that is nice, Rachel, to be able to have the sequel at click ready. Jo Jo I seem to have the same problem at times. I buy the book all geared up to read it and then it sits and waits. There are books I go back to and wish I hadn't let them sit for so long as they turned out to be a good read.

JoJo - JJJ (Jo Anna) Janesko My problem is that I rarely go back and read them. then it is just a waste of money. You should see how many books I have on my bookshelf that I haven't read and most likely won't since I am not that into paranormal or ya anymore.

message 33: by Sharlaine (new)

Sharlaine like like like it so much Rachel!!! Loved the review and the blog :) I'll definitely read any future works of Ms. Hoover too. For her debut, Slammed is really great. It's one of my favorites for this year.

message 34: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Thank you Sharlaine! I loved your review too! This one really got to me. I agree, it was really good especially for a debut. :)

message 35: by Eunice (last edited May 25, 2012 09:51AM) (new)

Eunice Lovely review, Rachel. I was so moved by this book too! And the poems too - they were incredible and very compelling. :))

message 36: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Oh I agree Eunice! When Will took her to that slam & then performed his, I was totally mesmerized! Glad you loved this one too! I'll check for your review. :)

message 37: by Mimi (new)

Mimi Valentine This is the second time I've read your review, and it still makes me wonder why I passed up on reading this the first time around! Beautiful review, Rachel! It's those books where you fall in love with the characters that get you, isn't it? :') <3

message 38: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Aww, thanks Mimi! You're such a sweetheart. I just want to say thanks for you super sweet and lovely comments. I laughed when I saw what you said about these brothers being like little puppies you set up play dates for!

I did fall in love with these characters, Mimi. I loved it!! I could easily re-read these books again just thinking about the story.

message 39: by Laura (new)

Laura I can’t wait to read this one, Rachel! I have heard wonderful things about it. Lovely review! I will definitely read it ASAP! Poetry makes my heart happy! :)

message 40: by Jenn (new)

Jenn hmm check this: http://tabithabookblog.blogspot.com/2...
