's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: reviewed-books
Read from March 27 to 28, 2012

Who will Bailey choose? Wanting to have this series end the way I want it to, may or may not be the reality that will be. Within the first six chapters of Loving I see turmoil in Bailey and see so many twists and turns to this story. Is Bailey with Brandon only because she has to have someone. OR ...Who will Bailey choose.

I so want to write about this book and how it ended, but I guess all I can say right now is I feel as if it ended the way it should have. To quote a line from the book "And just because all love is not the same that doesn't make it less than love."

Maybe a new series should emerge? just a thought.....

Nic I really hope Cody, but I think Bailey would be happy with either. Which team are you on?

Maleah I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS! I pre-bought it.
I've read the book and was sadly disappointed. I feel like I was thrown for a loop in this book. I honestly don't feel like both guys were giving a fair chance in this book. To much of the book was throwing you one way and one way only. I feel like the Cody in this book was not the same person I've falling in love with and longed for Bailey to choose. Now whether Karen Kingsbury was influenced by her own life is for you to decide. I think even if she didnt mean for it to she forced things in this book that wouldn't have happened a year from now. Please understand me I'm not blaming her, but as someone writes from time to time, I know that the thing in my own life influence my writing. It's that simple. I'm still a big Karen Kingbury fan, but I hope that the real and the fiction stay a little more separate.
Spoiler Alert
Cailey Fans prepare for a let down.

Nic I really, really hope it is Cody. But everything is pointed to her choosing Brandon.. KK knows how to draw in the suspense!!

Rebecca "Rebaka" Lewis You never know. Sometimes its not always what it seems.

message 8: by Nic (new)

Nic Hope so... All that build up and tension between Bailey and Cody can't come to friendship. That'd be disappointing and totally off the point KK has made.

message 9: by Nic (new)

Nic Oh, and apparently, from the review above, she chose Brandon...

Rebecca "Rebaka" Lewis I can't wait to see. It's been a long month in anticipation of this book. I don't think I've waited in such excitment for any other book. It's going to be REALLY hard not looking at the end when it finally does come out.

message 11: by Nic (new)

Nic well, I hope the lady who reviewed is wrong...

message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

it wounldnt be right if she picked brandon it would ruin the whole thing, ill be rather disappointed if she does because then it will be like she is making off the real bailey and brandons romance istead of the fictional ones....

message 13: by Nic (new)

Nic there's a review from a lady on the page, she won the book on facebook, she says that Bailey chose Brandon. So right now, my hopes aren't up. For Cody and Bailey to end up like how she said on the review, after all they've been through. No. What's worse is that she was gonna pick Cody.

Rebecca "Rebaka" Lewis I can't find it either. I don't see her with Brandon...
If this is true and she picks Brandon, I hope he learns Bailey's name. I'll still read the book. Sure wish we'd get it earlier than the 27th.

message 15: by Nic (new)

Nic its one more week!!

Rebecca "Rebaka" Lewis And what a LONG week it's going to be

message 17: by Nic (new)

Nic the review was 'hidden' because it contained spoilers!! Oh and let me know who she chooses. I live no where near a mall so i'll have to wait but i still wanna know. Even though i'm pretty sure its Brandon.

message 19: by Nic (new)

Nic thanks:)

Melanie If Bailey picks Brandon, that wrecks the whole series!! Totally agree with what Shawna said above.

message 21: by Nic (new)

Nic A LOT of people are NOT going to be happy...
