Normally, I try to write long complicated reviews for books when reviewing them for blog tours. However, I feel that this book doesn't need it, for when it comes down to the basics, it is a love story.

Falling for Shakespeare is one for every romance reader at heart. You have high school friends; one who realizes that they like the other person, the other not realizing it. But you read as the painful friends try to figure out this water. Then there's also the very accurate setting of high school.

I am not the biggest fan of romance. I just loved this book so much. It is a romance but not that much of a romance. There is just enough in there that you want everyone to be happy and get the girl at the end.

The book was written really well. This is definitely a book that young and old can read and fall in love with. The story just flows along and you don't want to put the book down. I think I read the book in a couple of hours.

You will want to route for the underdog here. You see how Katie

Taking this one at face value for a contemporary ya romance, it was pretty good. It had all the elements there that'd you want in it. I just think that some of them could have been highlighted more if the pacing had been a bit better.

Part of the problem is that I didn't connect to any of the main characters and Nic

Es una tierna historia que ayuda a pasar la tarde :)

Lo curioso de la preparatoria es que un día puedes ser la chica mala en la cima de la cadena alimenticia y de repente, tu hermana embarazada te convierte en la perdedora de la clase.

La vida de Katie era perfecta. Salía con el capitán del equipo de fútbol, tenía una mejor amiga para toda la vida, y cada chica en la escuela quería ser como ella. Pero entonces el embarazo de su hermana lo cambió todo, y de repente, Katie estaba sola. Sin amigos, sin novio, sin vida social.

When I saw the notice about the blog tour for this book, I jumped at the chance to participate. The book just sounded so adorable! I am a sucker for a good best-friends-turned-lovers book, and Falling for Shakespeare seemed to fit that bill. I was also very intrigued by the idea of Katie’s sister having a child while still in school and wanted to see how the author handled teen motherhood as well as the impact on Katie as the younger sister of a teen mom.

So, I snatched up the ARC and began readi

Que puedo decir, todo comenzó relativamente bien, sin embargo con el paso de las páginas no podemos evitar mirar todos los errores que esta haciendo la autora, tiene buenos personajes y problemas bastantes interesantes, solo que no profundiza en ellos, todo es demasiado superficial, que parecía que una página te hablaban de él y a la siguiente ya estaba resuelto.

Como digo, los personajes están bien, me gustó la personalidad del personaje mascul

I liked the story of the book, the idea of it and the main characters. Katie suffered so much with all the changes in her life that made me ask some questions that I actually wished was in the book: if they were so closed to each other, why Alissa didn't make an intervention on some things?
There was more questions that I wanted to know but wasn't in the story, like: what happened to Reese? She thought about what she'd done? How Alissa and her family deals with Hannah's father? His family doesn't
