it was amazing
Read from December 03 to 05, 2010

I'm not the contemporary romance type of girl. I find them cheesy and boring. I hate how they usually revolve around a misunderstanding between boy and girl usually involving girl 2 or boy 2. I didn't come into this book with a bad attitude but I came with very low expectations.

I’m probably STILL not the contemporary romance type of the girl but I will easily say that I am now a HUGE fan of Stephanie Perkins and Anna and the French Kiss . My face hurts from smiling. I was sitting by myself in my bedroom and I was smiling from ear to ear. I hate when I do that, since no one can see you smile but you cannot help yourself. That was me- grinning like the Joker. I laughed, and I cried. I felt like a teenager because the author managed to bring me back to my teenage years with such ease that I forgot I was not a teenager for a few hours.

Simply one of the best YA books I’ve read in YEARS.

Update- Added to my "Favorite Book of 2010" shelf.

Sans Great review, Michelle. I've been hemming and hawing over this one, but I'll reserve it at the library now.

Just make sure you start in the morning, otherwise you won't sleep trying to finish it. :)

Sans Sleep? What's that? I know not of this concept. Reading is much more important!

I 100% agree. I'd much rather be reading than most anything. Not everything- there are a few activities I enjoy more ;)

Sans *snicker* I completely agree.

This is a genre I'd normally never read but it still made it to my Favorite book of 2010 shelf. It was that good!


Alyssa hoffmaster it makes me want to read it even more :)

My copy has gone around my workplace and in three days, three different employees have read it and all of them said it was one of their favorite books. All of them (even one who hardly reads books) read it straight through without stopping.


Alyssa hoffmaster wow, that's amazing
