Miss Bookiverse Usually I stay away from self published books but your review just made me really curious.

~Tina~ I didn't know how to review this one either. It was just a great great read!:) Awesome review!

♥Rachel♥ I loved this one too, Janina! It was unputdownable! I loved that even though Jacqueline suffered heartbreak, she got back up and got on with her life. Sorry you're suffering a somewhat similar situation. Excellent review. :)

Janina Infinite, I have not read many self-published books myself, but this one and also Angelfall by Susan Ee were really good. Honestly, I did not notice they were self-published at all ...

Thanks Rachel and Tina! I am really happy my GR friends (among them you, I believe) brought this book to my attention.

Judy Great review. Some books just can't be analyzed and broken down into why theme A works with theme B and insert said type of character. Sometimes a story comes to us right when we need it :) You sold me on this one! Can't wait to read it now.

Miss Bookiverse Most of the ones I tried turned out to be quite bad :/ but Angelfall is also on my to-read list, so many readers love it.

Janina Lol, I might just have erased the bad ones from my memory :).

Judy I bought it! So excited to start reading.

Janina And you've read it already, wow! (I feel a bit lost with notifications still not working properly, sorry) I am really glad you enjoyed it!

Judy Heh I started it and I couldn't stop reading so I just finished it. If it wasn't for your review though I would have never bought it. It just didn't sound like the type of book I would like, but I'm glad I read it.

Judy Reread your review again after putting mine together, and I agree with the music part. That was what I found odd that she was talented enough to pursue music as a career, yet somehow in her interactions with Lucas, that was never something that she shared with him?

message 12: by Janina (new)

Janina Yes, and it also felt as if it didn't really shape her as a person, right? I always thought that if you are planning to attend a music conservatory (which I understood she was at least at some point of her life, even if she decided not to follow that plan), music had to make out a really really big part of your life not only due to practicing, but also just ... in your thoughts?

message 13: by Judy (new)

Judy It felt like the author needed to decide on a major for Jackie and then was like "music is cool, right?" And then threw it in there without appreciating how dedicated to music you have to be in order to do it full time. Many of the music students I know live and breathe music. I mean, if you changed out "music" for "chemistry" and "practice" for "lab work", I wouldn't have blinked an eye.

I am looking for a good music focused YA story right now though, so it might be why it's standing out to me.
