Before you continue: If you've not yet read Thirty-Eight Days please do so before reading Thirty-Eight Reasons. Thirty-Eight Reasons is NOT a standalone. It is the second book in the
Thirty-Eight Series and is the conclusion to Noel and Clara's story.

5 Beautiful Stars!!

Having read Thirty-Eight Reasons prior to its publication I can't tell you how ecstatic I was to finally read it after it was finally published! It felt like finally getting closure and

This book left me speechless, in tears, and wanting to find my one true love. I've always been a hopeless romantic and have been criticized for it but this book made me realize that true love/soul mate/lifelong partner is out there for me/everyone.
Len is an awesome writer and she tell of love the way it happens in everyday life. It's worth all five stars and deserves to be a number one seller.

I started this book in hope it would be better than the first one, but no. The story could have been resolved in the first 20% of the book, but for some inexplicable reasons, the two made decisions that didn't make sense at all. Sorry I had to give up

I can‘t even...I just can‘t.

The second book is somehow worse than the first one.

There was so much unnecessary drama and back and forth, I almost got whiplash.

I hate it when in a romance the heroine and hero are with other people. I hate it even more when the reason they are separated in the first place is beyond stupid.

After a while I just couldn’t take it anymore and I skipped to the end (wasn‘t even halfway through).

Where do all these 4 and 5 stars reviews come from? Did we read the same

Love this one just as much as the first one! I can't wait to have a published copy of this one also!

Best book I've ever read!

Already after reading Thirty-Eight Days I knew that the sequel would be just as great as the first book. With Thirty-Eight Reasons the story of Clara and Noel continues and gets you hooked from the start.

For me Thirty-Eight Reasons is by far the best book I’ve ever read!! It is so emotional and has such a unique and heartbreaking story, I just couldn’t put the book down until it was finished! A love so pure and honest as Clara and Noel's is so seldom that you have to

3.75 stars.

I’m going to keep this relatively short because there is so much in this book that you really just have to experience it yourself. You must have read Thirty-Eight Days prior to this though.

This book frustrated me in the best possible way! I powered through it because I just needed to know what was going to happen. Despite being written in third person, you feel every emotion between Noel and Clara and the toing and froing is maddening to a degree but you understand it all.

You wont enjoy Thirty Eight Reasons if you haven't read Thirty Eight Days. There are so many things that you will realize once you finish reading Reasons. It reflects true story in all of us, you'll learn a lot on how u will deal with the problems on a relationship. Thumbs up Len Webster for doing a great job! You have this unique writing skills!=)

Nothing short of being wonderful just as the last book. I loved this sequel as well. It was a roller coaster of emotions, but it is an amazing book and I would read it all over again.

Couldn't put it down. The only negative were a lot of typos that were annoying and kept slowing down my reading to try and re read sentences.

Finding your happily ever after

Wow Wow Wow Thirty-Eight Reasons by Len Webster is the conclusion to Noel and Clara’s story that began in Thirty-Eight Days, and it is one emotional rollercoaster ride. From the prologue that had me reacting like this: NOOOOOOO to the ending that had me feeling and all of the emotions in between.

This isn’t an easy review to write because I don’t want to give away the plot line of the first book, so I’ll keep in simple. Noel and Clara have a long, hard,

4.5 Stars for Clara and Noel

Clara and Noel have split up? Noel has a new girlfriend? Clara is engaged to Liam? This book literally killed me. In a good way. Two people who are used to running have to fight to get there happy ending.
I really tried to hate Liam and Andrea but I really could not. They are nice and understanding and in the end accepting.
Clara's and Noel's friends are all very supportive and I absolutely love

This book literally made me throw a tantrum. I have never been so worked up and frustrated over a book before. Clara drove me nuts with her indecisiveness but made it through without having a damn heart attack. From halfway until almost the end I was literally a mix between a crying mess and internally screaming. I make it sound like this book is bad but for it to get such a reaction from me, I rate it very highly. It’s a very real, beautiful and heartbreaking love story, even though I was ...more

3 - 3.5

Better than the first book but still a lot of absurdity to it all. Finally Clara and Noel had their happy ending but this story could have been so much better if it hadn't gone back and forth dragging this story out. I liked this better but at the same time didn't. I basically just read this book to have closure of the story.. did a lot of flipping through pages though.

God this book got me so frustrated! I can't even describe the number of times I swore at my computer because of these two people!
It was a great love story that made me go through all kind of emotions and I am so happy I read it!

Keep on fighting for the one you love, be humble and tell them how you really feel. Don't try and hide your feelings and move on without giving each other another chance

This book, just as the first one in the series, was a roller coaster of emotions. Len's writing always makes me feel. It's strange how words can be so powerful.

I very much enjoyed this book, it was addicting, just like the last one. I felt a hunger for it, while I had to put it down to do “real life stuff”, and I had to know how it ended.

At one point, I thought I could not take it anymore. It was too painful, too awful. How the main characters, Clara and Noel, just couldn't open up to each
