1,135,789. That’s how many subscribers sixteen-year-old West Ryder has on his web vlog series. But he only has eyes for one of them.

As one of the internet’s most prestigious video bloggers, West talks about high school relationships under the name “Sam Green.” As far as he knows, no one from school, not even his best friend, Cat, has seen his videos. But the highlight of

So this is my book and obviously I'm a bit biased, but I really do hope you all fall in love with the characters as much as I have.

Update: The first chapter of CLICK is officially up on my blog! If you're interested, see here.

Check out more of my reviews at ***Singing and Reading in the Rain***!

It's hard to capture in words just how turbulent Click to Subscribe is. It captured so many different stages of falling in love in a beautiful, heart-warming story like a photo series done by the most renown photographer.

Click to Subscribe will make your heart pound ridiculously. We had romantic tension between our two characters Cat and West, and with that romantic tension came the unspeakable awkwardness that will make you l

Thank you L. M. Augustine for sending me this beautiful book. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review.

Going into Click to Subscribe, I already had this gut feeling that I was going love this book. Naturally, I was right. After a long anticipated wait, I dug right in, ditching all other books upon receiving the ARC.

L. M. introduces readers into a completely new take on best friend romance to a more realistic and emotionally driven level. Click To Subscribe promises

"Well, sometimes love is right in front of you the whole time, even if you don't realize it. And, like your vlog, all you have to do is click to subscribe."
First of all, thank you L. M. Augustine for being so awesome and sending me an eARC even though I don't have a blog. It really meant a lot.
Let me tell you this, this book is literally made of awesome. I mean, it had Harry Potter, Nemo/Dory, awesome cow-doing-the-disco-while-standing-on-a-bike-and-balancing-a-pizza-on-its-head GIF and so man

I had the priviledge of receiving a copy of this last month from L.M.I'm so glad he gave me the opportunity to read and review this book.
Everyone knows I am a very BIG HEA Addict. This book has such a great HEA it was truly amazing.

This was a sweet, fun read, with romance and vanilla Ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. You will have some bouts of laughter with this book for sure. This book is clever, witty, and hilarious. I couldn't get enough of how great it was, especially when the characters

Okay?

I had this book for a while before I actually sat down and read it. I mean, I'd started it and read the first 50 pages right away, but then life happened and I had to wait. So when I went back to it, I was honestly nervited to see how the book was going to go. (Nervited. Wanna guess which two words that mixes? You have five seconds, GO! 12345--nervous and excited.

This book is so fluffy but other times I felt it silly. I think this book captures teens today, you know with how the internet has been a vital part of their lives and most of the time they tend to become more social through the internet than in real life, a means of escape that is. West Ryder had become socially active in the internet after his mom died, he had made vlogs and ever since then his subscribers escalated to a hundred thousand and even found a special someone

If you read CLICK TO SUBSCRIBE's blurb, you may be expecting a cute, lighthearted story about young love. It is certainly that, especially in the beginning, but don't be fooled. There is a lot more to CLICK than the blurb suggests, and I mean a lot. Fluff, it is not. This is a fully-developed, emotionally rich story that will tug on every one of your heart strings.

CLICK's leading man, West Ryder, is an absolute doll. He's witty, laugh-out-l

I was privileged enough to have been given an ARC to read by my friend and fellow author L.M. Augustine, and feel pretty happy about it!

I'll start out by saying that I love reading YA and NA Romance...I'm a romantic at heart, a true sucker for a romance, and a HEA junkie (for those of you who don't know that's Happily Ever After)... :)

I LOVED this story.

I feel like the Grinch getting ready to steal all the Christmas presents in Whoville. This story just didn't cut it for me. It was sappy. By chapter two, I realized that my first problem was that West's POV was very girly. Not effeminate. He read like a drama queen female character. I felt like the characters were written in a very young, possibly middle school manner. Then there were f-bombs being flung all over, so it couldn't have been a middle grade book. Romance was unrealistic & unsati ...more

Staggeringly as it may seem, but our teenager hero, West doesn't look like he likes kissing!!! Okay, he needs first for things to get cleared up in his messy mind, but even after that he claims that it's still not the time!!! WOW!!!
It's a very short story and West's family drama and his own depression would have required more work and a lot more pages. I was unhappy with the epilogue. The first sentence takes you 6 months after. When I read the words I thought it would be after 10 years

It's Young Adult, sweet and clean, and it grabbed me from the first page and didn't let me go. I laughed, got a little weepy, and had an amazing time with every page. CLICK and I just clicked!

Click To Subscribe is the stuff YA novels are made of. Slightly awkward teens, friendship, angst, and of course first love.

West Ryder is popular...

...but not in the literal sense. He is a vlogger that has over 135k+ subscribers and one of them happens to catch his interest. Her name is Harper and between their philosophical conversations about pizza, West starts falling in love.

But like most teens, falling in the love the first time is not without

A story about a guy who vlogs? I just knew I had to read this book, the instant I found out about it! And I’m going to sound like such a girl but I just need to put it out there: Isn’t the guy on the cover cute? I love his wavy blond hair and that dimple on his cheek. (I zoomed in, duh) I could totally picture him as West Ryder while I was reading! The girl on the cover is real pretty too! Her raging red hair is exactly how I envisioned Cat's! Yep, aestheticall

Best friend turned lovers kind of stories always make me feel giddy in a way no other kind of story does, and Click to Subscribe definitely belongs to that rank. It’s sweet and short (not really super short) and easy to read, it just has that quality of perfect bittersweetness that will make you continue reading it until you reach the last page. I was definitely swooning and giggling all that time, I swear I looked like an idiot if you just saw me laughing and squealing by myself. haha. Thinking ...more

Click to Subscribe was a really sweet story, but it also had a lot more depth than I anticipated. The synopsis really only clues you in to half the story. Yes, it is about a boy who falls for a regular commenter on his vlog. And yes, he finds out that this girl is actually his best friend, Cat. But, this happens in the first portion of the story and the real hook is finding out what happens next.

Click to Subscribe is the cute and sweet story promised in the synopsis and on the cover. West and Ca

I did not enjoy this book. And once I started to dislike it I was distracted a myriad of factors that in others books or in other writers hands probably wouldn't have bothered me so much. It is like when you don't like someone and all you see are their imperfections and idiosyncrasies while your best friend might have similar qualities but you are blind to them or find them endearing. That is sort of the place that I am coming from writing about this book.

Cute story that mostly avoids typical self-pubbed pitfalls.

Things I liked:

-- narrative voice is engaging
-- dialogue is believable
-- premise is cute
-- story incorporates more than just a typical romance in regards to his parents.
-- cute ice cream scenes
-- male POV in these types of books is fun.

Stuff that I could live without, that may not bother others:

-- lots and lots of email exchanges with distracting formatting; most of it was texting-type flirting without meaningful interaction, so I start

Warning: This book has an interesting summary to it, buthonestly contains immature content. Ages 15+ would most likely get bored And disappointed.

Caution: This is a rant kind of review. So sorry for any offense; just speaking my honest opinion.

I wanted to rate it like 0.5 but my only other option was a one.

So, honestly speaking, I could not bring myself to finish this book. It was very dragging and half of it was full of "Oh let's troll each other since we're best friends and let the readers

Wow. This book was great.

I'm such an emotional reader. When I love a book, I get attached to its characters. I feel like they are my friends. I wish I could have had friends like West and Cat in high school, self-proclaimed nerds and not ashamed of it.

I found myself grinning like an idiot for the better part of this book. Although, I would have loved to slap West a time or two. But he is a teenage boy, and we all know those creatures have a mind of their own. Crazy boys.

Click to Subscribe was adorable and fun, but without sacrificing depth. My favorite part of the book was West himself, his hilarious, honest, and in a way very vulnerable voice. I LOVED the email exchanges in the opening third or so, especially the haikus, which had me laughing out loud. Everything is not happiness and rainbow sprinkles in West Ryder's world...but this book will still leave you with a huge smile on your face.

West Ryder, a self-proclaimed dork, is a seventeen year old whose life has recently taken an unexpected turn due to a tragedy that tore his fa mily apart. One way of coping is his video blog, aka vlog, where he's known as Sam Green. As far as West knows, no one he knows has any idea that he runs the vlog, not even Cat, his best friend since childhood.

Vlogging is something I can't not do, and I never feel more at peace than when I'm talking in front of the camera, filming my next vlog. Some nig

I know what you're thinking (or at least one of you is thinking. Hi Charlie!): the story's pretty much summed up in the blurb, right?

I want to say wrong but basically, that's what happens. Before you get all judgy and forget about giving this book a shot, I'm telling you GIVE THIS BOOK A SHOT. Why? Because of all the feels. Yes, as simple as that. The feels.

"Click to Subscribe" is a totally fun, cute, young love kind of book. It is meant for the true young adult, who I believe will love it and worship it even more than an adult reading YA (unless you're just a sucker for true love like I am, and then any epic love story pretty much rocks!). This is not a bad thing. This just means that Augustine did an excellent job writing to the book's target demographic.

Click to Subscribe has to be one of the easiest books to get into and love. With the easy way it flowed and the amazing writing style of the author, I could not stop reading.

West is a nice guy who vlogs in his free time and to escape from his life. No body but his mom knew about it, or about Harper, the girl who comments on 2:02 everyday and who West is falling for. When she asks to meet him in person, he never expected his crush

Even though I thought Click to Subscribe was a pretty adorable story, it had a few negative sides that prevented me from giving it more than 3 stars.

What I liked about it:

- I loved that the story is told from a boy's POV
- Cat was a great heroine and I loved the fact that she went ahead and told her best friend she was in love with him from the get go. Most love stories involving best friends consists of the main characters keeping their feelings a secret until the end
