Landon Gibson #1

Nothing More

Rate this book
New York's skyscrapers and hectic pace are a far cry from where Landon Gibson grew up, and the transition to New York University has been jarring. But he's getting the hang of things, found a job that pays (some of) the bills, enjoys school, and only occasionally runs into his ex, Dakota. You know, the one he chose NYU for...before she dumped him.

Luckily, his best friend, Tessa, shares a (terribly small) Brooklyn apartment with him. And given the ups and downs she's had with her own ex, she's a good listener when he finds himself in something of a love triangle—a love knot? Whatever it is, it's a mess. An exciting mess. Maybe an addicting mess, because beautiful girls.

Being young and finding your way in the world is hard. Landon's always been a positive person. But such a loud, demanding city so far away from home means you only get by with a little help from your friends. And a good pair of headphones.

Landon's going to be okay...but the journey sure will be fun to watch.

I was sent an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I tried again and again to read this book but I just can't stand it any longer. This is my first time reading a book by Anna Todd and it will probably be my last. Her writing just reads like a fanfiction, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it doesn't even read like a good fanfiction, just a mediocre one. This book has the most ridiculous love triangle that I couldn't be more uninterested in. Landon's main love interest Dakota is one of the most annoying and controlling bitches I've ever read about in a book. She's the kind of girl who will happily leave him because she thinks she deserves better but then will get irrationally jealous and crazy when he gets with a new girlfriend and will try and get him back just to prove she's the best.

All the characters are annoying and one dimensional and I didn't relate to any of them and this book is entirely focused on this really ridiculous, over the top love triangle. I honestly went into this book with an open mind and was hoping I would like it, but I didn't. I've been picking this book up and putting it down again for a month now and I'm done trying. I just didn't like it and I don't have anything else left to say about it.

OPD!! OPD!! OPD!
Si creía que Anna Todd no podría crear un personaje más absurdo que Tessa estaba equivocada, Landon es mucho más absurdo y tonto que Tessa y eso es mucho que decir.

Este libro trata básicamente de un triangulo amoroso entre Landon, Nora/Sophia y Dakota (un personaje el cual odie, pero literal ODIE!!! es una perra!!!)

Tenía algunas expectativas respecto a este libro ya que Landon en los libros de After lo plasmaba totalmente diferente que aquí. En lo libros no era tan hijo de mami (en cada capitulo hay algún momento en donde habla de su madre), ni tan obsesionado con el sexo y en su antigua relación super toxica (SI, en este libro conocemos una relación más toxica que la de Tessa y Hardin, aunque no lo crean)

No paro de repetirme como Landon no puede darse cuenta de lo toxica que es su relación con Dakota, pero principalmente de lo perra, desgraciada, desquiciante y desesperante que es ella.

Landon parece el típico perdedor que siempre estará pase lo que pase (lo que le haga la ex) apoyando, ayudando a la ex, que ha simple vista se nota que no lo ama, solo que no aguanta que este sea feliz, que la olvide, que aprenda a vivir sin ella y tenga otra pareja. Lo cual provoca hacerle escenas de celos y lo peor que Landon crea que es una muestra de su amor y algo maravilloso (menuda tontería).

Doy gracias que solo habrá dos libros de esta historia, porque creo que no soportare leyendo más sobre esta relación (voy a aventar estos libros por la ventana si Dakota y Landon terminan juntos, lo juro).

Estoy fastidiada de leer sobre triángulos amorosos de este tipo, estoy harta de leer sobre relaciones toxicas, principalmente estoy cansada que los autores las muestren como si fuera algo lindo, como si fuera lo mejor que te puede pasar en la vida, NO! NO! NO! SON HORRIBLES, SON DESGASTANTES, SON FRUSTANTES!!!.

Lo único que he amado de este libro son las apariciones de Hardin (créanme han sido lo mejorcito del libro).

Pueden leer este libro sin haber leído After? Si, si pueden hacerlo. No tendrán problemas.
Es diferente a After? So... quitando que Landon es la versión masculina de Tessa, Dakota es más desgraciada que Hardin y Nora es muy WTF?! Pues creo que no, bueno... hay menos drama que en After.
Contiene escenas de sexo? Si y no, ya que Landon se la pasa medio libro (o más) pensando en el sexo y teniendo sueños húmedos.
Este libro es un poco mejor que After? No, definitivamente no (con esto lo digo todo).

3 Mr. Landon’s choices Stars

This is my first Anna Todd book. Nothing More is a spinoff from the After series. The After series is based on Tessa, who is Landon’s roommate. Nothing More is the first book in the Landon Gibson series. First off, I love series, I love them because it always leaves me wanting more and I LOVE that feeling. If you don’t, then you should because there’s nothing like finishing a book and realizing there’s more to come!

This is a love triangle book and it’s angst filled. Usually I cringed on those two things, but I knew this prior to getting into the read. There’s something about getting prepped before a read that just makes me understand the book better.

The book is about Landon, his ex-girlfriend Dakota and Tessa’s friend Nora. There are a lot of mixed reviews on this book and I’m not sure how different the book is from the Wattpad version. To me the book feels polished and edited. I didn’t have trouble following the story and I could understand the characters.

I would say Landon is the typical young male. The book is 100% from his POV and I will admit at times it seems like his POV sounds more on the feminine side, but I think that’s just the author getting her feet wet in writing from a male POV. It wasn’t distracting, it’s just that I am use to alpha male characters. Landon isn’t that. But his flaws are endearing.

He and Dakota dated but they moved apart and now they are in the same city again. They remain friends. Nora is the pretty new girl making moves on Landon and he doesn’t know how to feel about this. She’s beautiful and very forward, very different from what we read as a Heroine.

At the same time Dakota wants Landon back and she more or less pees on him to claim him. A lot of reviewers were very angry with Dakota because lets face it, she’s the villain in the book, BUT I am different. The meaner the villain the more I like it. Yes, Dakota is immature, dramatic and selfish. Why would Landon want to be with her?

It kind of feels like one of that reality TV shows and you question why the guy is still with that girl, well it comes down to one thing, Landon is whipped. Dakota has him wrapped around her bratty finger and Landon is stuck.

I believe as the series progresses it will be about Landon trying to break free from Dakota’s finger and truly manning up.

This book is for the tortured readers. The ones that crave love triangles, angst filled drama and tortuous dialogue.

Actual rating: 3.5 stars

If like me, you're a huge fan of the After series, you're already very familiar with our main character - Landon Gibson. Landon is Tessa's best friend and Hardin's step brother. He's knows as being the nice guy, the guy you can always count on. At the end of the After series fans learn that years down the line Landon marries, but readers were left scratching their heads at the question of WHO. Nothing More is Landon's journey to finding love and ultimately his Happily Ever After.

New to New York and still nursing a broken heart from his high school girlfriend - Dakota, Landon is just trying to find where he fits in here. Sure he's got his college courses, a job, and a couple friends to occupy his time, but Landon is lonely. Good thing he's got a few girls vying for his attention, including Dakota!

As an Anna Todd fan I was HIGHLY anticipating Landon's story. And while I did like this book, it certainly wasn't love as it had been with Hardin and Tessa's books. I'm not quite sure Landon is up to being the leading man of his own series in all honesty. His daily life was repetitive and for lack of a better word, boring. Then there would be some really amazing scenes where Landon would loosen up a bit and be (in true Landon fashion) weirdly awkward but somehow sexy and I loved that! So while there were some really great moments, I needed more of them.

Nevertheless, I WILL be first in line to get my hands on Nothing Less because I HAVE to know who Landon ends up with! I just love these characters so so much. I feel like they are a part of me. I cried with them, I raged with them, I laughed with them, and I will be with them till the end. If you're a fan of the After series I of course recommend reading Nothing More .

*Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Os Pré-Adultos


Abriram a casa dos 20 e têm tanto caminho por trilhar...
Estudam, trabalham e amam nos intervalos!
Ou será a inversa que é verdadeira?!
Amam, trabalham e estudam nos intervalos?! ;)

Estudam e trabalham porque a sobrevivência e realização social assim o ditam.
Mas mais que tudo, precisam de alguém -- alguém especial que os ame, compreenda e lhes permita ser quem são — e por isso Amam!...

E na busca mandatória do self, perdem-se e encontram-se:
Abdicam de si mesmos para agradar, e perdem-se!
Encontram-se nos opostos e sofrem!
Mas equilibram-se nas outras versões de si mesmos!

É um processo moroso que actua de fora para dentro.
Uma pesquisa continuada por espelhos duma identidade soterrada; espelhos que se escondem, e urge encontrar por aí...

E esta é a história da entrada dum Landon-Bom-Rapaz-Menino-da-Mamã, na selva dos pré-adultos!
Que petisco para as naughty girls!... ;)

Landon.

description

We all remember the adorable Landon from Tessa and Hardin's books.
He was the best friend, the brother, the nice guy, the good guy.

He's a happy guy. He's always been this guy.
Happy in his life. He loves his world. He loves his mom. He's happy.

Now he's in New York to go to University to become a elementary teacher - again, a job for the good, nice, perfect guy.

He's living with his almost-step-sister-in-law Tessa - who's still grieving over her break-up with Hardin.

But Landon is not happy. His long-time girlfriend Dakota broke up with him to be a carefree single in NYC while going to dance school.

And now poor Landon is just going to school and working at a coffee shop.
Every day exactly the same. He doesn't really know what to do with himself. Especially on his days off.

And what about his love life? It doesn't exist.
But there are a few girls interested - his ex Dakota included!!!!

What will happen with Landon and...?
Will there be a HEA?
Or will there be a horrible Cliffy?

I'm not telling you that of course ☺ ☺

Oy Landon


I was sooo looking forward to more from Anna Todd - and since I'm so not a wattpad reader, I'm happy that the book is here now.
And I didn't like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, that's not really true. But almost.

I don't know what happened here.
It was so boring and ... subtle? Maybe it was too subtle and I just didn't get it? That could be the answer.

I loved Landon in #Hessa's books and now he's here on his own. He could tell us all this amazing story about how he found real love in New York.
But what he does is... NOTHING! (Probably why Anna named the books Nothing More and Nothing Less! ☺)

Since the nothing part is already covered in the title, I should've probably expected it.
But I had so much hope for Landon.
But he's literally doing NOTHING!
He's walking around New York, drinking coffee and thinking and talking like a little boy of 9 playing grown-up in the big city.
It was all so very weird and uneventful and, yup, BORING!
But unlike so many other readers, I didn't want to give up. I still had hope - and this is a 2-book-story, so I will not give up that hope yet. ☺

And it did get better. ☺
There was some action and interesting stuff.
There's even a kiss here and there.

description

The story is supposed to be some kind of love triangle thing. I hate those.
But it's not really a triangle thing. Landon is just too vanilla to be in a triangle.
He doesn't know how to say no to one girl and he doesn't know how to say yes to the other.

It's all a bit like eating mashed potatoes without salt & nutmeg :/ Like watching vanilla ice cream melt to a slow death. I think Anna herself explains Landon best in the book:

...women go through a period of trial and error with the hot bad boys, but eventually most of them want to trade in the motorcycle for a Prius.
That's me.
The human version of a Prius.


Yup. The Prius is a great car. A nice car. A car that's not hurting the environment. A car that loves his mom and can't wait to play with his new baby sister. ☺☺☺

I think - and please don't be insulted or offended now - the perfectestestet solution for Landon would've been to make him gay.
He already has lots of metro-sexual elements in this book.
So why not make him the most adorable gay person ever. He could be the boyfriend of a hot guy with a hectic job, like a doctor or lawyer. And that lawyer or doctor would be coming home every night to a home-cooked meal, flowers on the table, a foot massage. Saturday mornings would be spent walking through a farmer's market. Sunday roast-dinners at the in-laws.

I think that would've been the best Anna could've done for Landon and the readers.
He's just too spice-less and un-alpha as a straight guy. No offense intended. I still loved him. And the book. But it was just way too bland.

And the end? No cliffy, no sudden thunder and lightning, no alien invasion - just full-stop. And then the Acknowledgments. I really hope book #2 will be amazing and that Landon will find his Happily Ever After with a person who deserves him!!!! And I honestly can't wait to read it, because there HAS to be SOMETHING MORE right??? ☺

NOTHING MORE was so much LESS than I expected. ☹
But of course I still loved Landon and I'm very hopeful that his 2nd book will be amazing!!!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own dose of Landon!!!

I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher
I tried to like this book, I really did. I tried so hard. But I just couldn't.
I read Anna's other book, After, last year and I really hated it. I didn't have extremely high hopes for Nothing More but I did expect a little bit more from this book. It is, in my opinion, miles above After though. I think the writing is a million times better than After but that being said, I still don't like the writing. It still reads like fanfiction but higher quality fanfic. But it's still lackluster and unpolished.
I'm not a fan of love triangles and this book perfectly represents why. It didn't help that I despised the characters involved. Dakota is such an awful person. She's so controlling and mean. I didn't care about the characters at all because they were all so annoying. And yet, I still didn't hate them as much as the characters in After.

Overall, I didn't like this book at all. I'm giving it 2 stars because I do think it's way better than After and I seen a lot of improvement in the writing. I think there is a very particular audience for this type of book and I'm definitely not it. I feel like this book is like trashy reality tv shows. It's not for most people but it's really enjoyable for others.

O carte pe care am așteptat-o cu nerăbdare încă de când am citit seria After. Când a apărut, am cumpărat-o. Și am citit-o... dar...
Nu a fost atât de interesantă pe cât mă asteptam sa fie. A lipsit scânteia. Este ca si cum autoarea s—a chinuit să o scrie. Puerila, cred ca acesta este cuvântul.... M-am așteptat ca povestea lui Landon sa fie mai calma, frumoasa... dar nu a fost așa. Am avut impresia ca nu știa ce vrea. Adică, nu mai era tipul sigur pe el din seria After.

Irgendwie konnte mich Landons Story bisher nicht so mitreißen wie die After-Reihe. Auch wenn Landon immer einer meiner liebsten Charaktere war, ist er hier ein ziemliches Weichei und anders als erwartet. Er lässt sich einfach viel zu viel gefallen. Alles in allem hat es mir aber eigentlich ganz gut gefallen, deshalb 3,5-4 Sterne.

3.5 what-in-the-world-are-you-doing-Landon stars

I have no idea where to start with this. I feel so utterly torn. I love this author—I even read her After series back when it was still on Wattpad. But I just couldn't, for the life of me, get into this book a hundred percent. Sadly, I had a very difficult time connecting with it. It certainly had its moments—both good and not so good ones... It was a bit dull and slow moving on the most part; it was a tad too detailed and descriptive the whole time for my liking. Although it did pick up on some parts, it just didn't hold my attention for too long. Given that the whole book is on Landon Gibson's POV, his head seemed like it was always all over the place and easily distracted. And I just didn't like how confused he always was. I know that this could be normal for any character, but the way it was written just didn't come across as much for me.

If you have read Anna Todd's After series, you would've already been introduced to Landon Gibson. He is most definitely not your typical alpha male character. Nope, he's far from it, actually. He's the epitome of Mr. Nice Guy. He's the one who's super sweet and will bend to your every need, every demand. Don't get me wrong, I loved his soft, kind and gentle side, but I just hoped he had a backbone sometimes. It's like he can never say no to anything. He's always getting dragged around by these people like he's a lost puppy and he's just allowing them to do so. I need you to grow up, be more mature and have your own say on things too, Landon. Come on, I know you're so much better than that. And I could only hope and pray that you choose the right girl, because if not, I just might lose my own damn head. I'm getting a slight feeling that you're veering to whom I'm vying for, but with you, I have no guarantees at all. Yup, you really did leave me hanging there.

The love triangle Landon has going on here could've made it more interesting and intriguing, maybe it did a little, but it only made me even more frustrated. Landon is just so perplexed about all of his emotions the entire time. He's been pining for his ex-girlfriend, Dakota, who left him after giving him really crappy reasons for doing so and now he's lusting after a friend, Nora, who thinks they could never work because of their own personal baggages. I'm always on the verge of screaming whenever Landon let Dakota back in, every time he consoled and welcomed her. I get that they've known each other forever, that they had history and all that, but seriously he needs to see things clearer. It was like he was wearing rose-colored glasses all throughout.

And Dakota—my freaking goodness, please don't even get me started with this girl. I was so close to blowing my lid off every time she was in the picture. Or maybe I already have. She infuriated the living daylights out of me. While Nora wasn't perfect either, at the very least, she didn't make me want to strangle her every single time she appeared.

So I'm saying this with a very heavy heart—this book fell short for me. I think I was expecting so much more from Landon's book. Although this is the case, I'm still looking forward to seeing where this story goes and who Landon chooses in the end. And hopefully, there will be lesser dull moments on the next one.

Landon Gibson was the perfect epitome of Mr. Nice Guy. He's been nursing a broken heart for over six months after her childhood best friend and longtime girlfriend, Dakota broke up with him to have an adventure and navigate the big city. With Sophia Nora de Laurentiis, often refer as Nora, showed interest to Landon, the three were caught in a love triangle drama. But when Landon was being fine having Nora around which is much complicated by the way, there's Dakota not wanting him to move forward with anyone else but her.

Dakota's character was so annoying. She's some controlling and jealous kind of ex-girlfriend who wanted to torment Landon, leaving him more confused. When she knew about Nora and Landon, she suddenly wants him back to prove that she's better.

While Landon was too nice thinking he would hurt her even he knew that he felt something more with Nora, he desperately try to be there with Dakota. They have this some undetailed connection and history that was never given some back story which kept me thinking of the why's. If only I was given some snippets of their past, maybe I could forgive and understand her better.

Written in Landon's POV, most of the time I felt like I'm reading a one-dimensional internal monologue of him and one-liner dialogue with the other limited characters involved in this book. The writing style was repetitive and the ending too didn't go quite so well for me. It felt like the readers were put on hold in an abrupt stop rather than on an edge of a cliff, but with that given as an ending, there was still something that intrigued me to read  Nothing Less (like I will unlock a top secret profile type of intrigued).

Gente, leí toda la serie de AFTER hace unos años cuando era más chica, me es imposible traer la review de esos libros; pero realmente REALMENTE NO LEAN LOS LIBROS DE LANDON. SON LITERALMENTE ABURRIDOS.

Se nota mucho como Anna Todd quizo exprimir todo lo posible de estos libros sacando las historias de Landon. Algo que jamás debió hacer.

Ya de por si digamos que After no es un buen libro, no es una buena serie (no podría llamarla saga, no es una saga). Toca temas muy complejos como las relaciones tóxicas, la manipulación y el dolor, llevando a cada personaje al extremo. Algo que diría que es bueno para que se hagan notar las relaciones abusivas... pero son libros que fueron patrocinados o vistos como “mientras haya amor todo puede estar bien” y no, enserio no, no puede estar bien.

Fuera de todas mis críticas son ADICTIVOS Y ME LOS DEVORÉ. Estuve más que enganchada con Tessa y Hardin, necesitaba saber cada detalle. En fin, mínimamente After tenía una historia que contar.

Pero ahora ya no.

Los dos libros de Landon son UNA PORQUERÍA. INNECESARIAMENTE LARGOS. DAN MIL VUELTAS CADA PERSONAJE Y TODO ES TAN INSÍPIDO Y ABURRIDO. Se nota que ya no hay una historia que contar, ya no hay nada. Para colmo Anna sacó DOS LIBROS SOBRE ÉL. UNA HISTORIA QUE SE PODÍA CONTAR EN UNO SOLOOOOOOOOOO y eso ya me parecía innecesario.

Simplemente no gasten su dinero en comprar estos libros como yo lo hice. Si quieren descarguen un pdf pirateado pero ni siquiera eso valen sus tiempos.

Reseña completa en: http://elcaosliterario.blogspot.com.e...

Antes de nada debo decir que no he leído ningún libro anterior de la serie After. Es independiente de la saga ya que es un spin-of con los mismos personajes y puede leerse esta biología de manera independiente ya que su único nexo en común son el nombre de los personajes y algún pequeño detalle que no interfiere para nada en la historia, simplemente amplía información para los que se hayan leído la saga.

En cuanto a la escritura de Anna Todd, he comprendido perfectamente el motivo de su éxito al leer este libro: frases fáciles de leer, todo bien hilado, amor, desamor... tiene todos los ingredientes para enganchar al público más joven. También debo decir que en ocasiones aporta demasiados detalles que no son importantes para la historia ni para los personajes, desconozco si es por hacerlo más largo y lanzar dos libros o si son las ganas de contarlo todo acerca de los personajes y crear un universo muy sólido a su alrededor. En algunas ocasiones también ha repetido los temas, por ejemplo, en tres ocasiones Landon cuenta que de pequeño tenía unos kilos de más y lo hace de una manera muy similar, como si en la segunda y tercera vez, fuese la primera que lo cuenta.

Una novela de amor y desamor de fácil lectura, rápida de leer y narrada por un chico con las hormonas revolucionadas y el corazón indeciso.

Ich habe Elfen, Zauberer, Hockey-Pucks und jede Menge Hexer im Kopf, aber keinen einzigen Modetipp.

"Hat sie etwa gerade...?! Ja, sie hat. Sie hat ein Buch aus der After- Serie mit 4,25 Sternen bewertet. Wer hätte das gedacht.
Es stellt sich heraus, dass ich anscheinend mit Anna Todds Büchern ziemlich gut klar komme (sie sogar gut finde, aber pssst ;)), sobald Tessa und Hardin nicht mehr wirklich eine Rolle spielen. Ich mochte Landon schon in den ersten Büchern am liebsten und hab mich drauf gefreut, endlich seine Geschichte zu lesen, wobei Band 4 ja schon den Ausgang spoilert... Egal. Landon macht das Lesen des Buches echt angenehm, ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen und die Spannung zwischen ihm und Nora ist deutlich zu spüren. Zwischen Anspielungen auf Shadowhunters, Harry Potter und einer (ihn selbst schockierenden) auf Twilight wuchs Landon mir noch mehr ans Herz und ich kann es quasi kaum erwarten, den nächsten Band in die Finger zu kriegen und weiterzulesen.

I was quite excited to read this. I know a lot of people who have read and loved Anna's books and I was thrilled to be able to start with a smaller sized book from a new series...

...but I don't think it's for me.

Landon is in his head a lot. Like a lot a a lot. I usually love boy POV the most, but I couldn't get interested in anything that was going on. Perhaps being familiar with what happens in the other series {since this appears to be a companion of sorts} would have helped.

Everything was so dramatic and that is most of what I didn't care for. Plus I was disappointed in the sparse dialogue. I struggled to root for what Landon was struggling with and ultimately, I didn't care what the outcome was.

Maybe I'll try a different book of Anna's in the future, but this series definitely isn't for me.

**Huge thanks to Gallery books for sending me a finished copy**

Ich bin so hin und her gerissen, und weiß nicht wirklich, wieviele Sterne ich vergeben möchte....
Ich probiere es erstmal mit 3,5 Sternen, und schlafe über Landon's Geschichte!
Soll ich euch sagen, warum ich so unschlüssig bin?
Weil irgendwie alles anders ist/war...
Kein Hardin und kaum Tessa, das hat mich nicht gestört....
Aber das, was ich bei Hardin und Tessa empfunden habe, das hat mir hier gänzlich gefehlt!
Und jaaaaa, ich weiß, es geht um Landon...
Aber, der Landon, den ich in "After" kennen, schätzen und lieben gelernt habe, wo war der denn?
Dieser Landon hier war eine völlig andere Person.
So'n bißl nerdig, so'n bißl uncool.... What?
Ich hab lange gebraucht, um mich auf die neue Stadt, die neue Situation, und die Geschichte um den neuen Landon einzulassen.
Und am Ende hat mich Anna Todd doch wieder gepackt. Sowohl mit ihrer Art zu schreiben, als auch mit ihrer Hingabe, Charaktere zu erschaffen!
Ich freue mich auf Band 2 "Nothing less".
Und vielleicht, wenn ich morgen aufstehe, bekommt Band 1 doch noch 4 Sterne.

Loooved this. I don’t think there’s any book in the “After” world I wouldn’t like.

Absolutely loved reading from London’s POV, which surprises me a bit as I usually don’t connect well with male POV’s, but this was easy as anything!

Loved learning about new and old characters! Can’t wait to read Nothing Less.

Irgendwie hatte ich durch 'After' eine gewisse Erwartung an Landons Geschichte. Leider wurde sie nicht so ganz erfüllt, weil Landon irgendwie anders war, als in Tessas & Hardins Geschichte.. Dreiecksgeschichten sind eh nicht mein Ding & Dakota ist ja wohl die schlimmste Person auf dieser Welt! Am Ende hat sich schon herauskristallisiert für wen sich Landon entscheidet & das Ende war im Gegensatz zum Anfang einfach großartig. Ich muss sagen ich bin nicht wirklich enttäuscht, ich habe nur etwas ganz anderes erwartet, aber ich freue mich schon auf 'Nothing Less' :)

Já tinha saudades de ler um livro contado na primeira pessoa por parte de um rapaz adolescente. Este livro mistura a vida normal de um adolescente entre vários dramas: faculdade, trabalho, amizade e vida amorosa.

I was a huge fan of this author after reading the After Series, she has become my addiction. I loved Hardin and Tess dysfunctional relationship, as well as the other minor characters that played a pivotal role in their story. In particular, Landon was a loved character in the series, he was the sensitive best friend of Tess who always came to her rescue when Hardin was behaving like a jerk. Needless to say, I was excited to read this book, but sadly this book was very disappointing. Landon described in this book still had his 'weak' persona in the previous books, but I felt that he did not grow. I got tired of him complaining about why his ex girlfriend left him. Like dude grow the hell up, she left you. Every page was him complaining about how he wanted what was best for her..he still loved her..he will do anything for her..SHUT UP ALREADY!

If that was not enough,I did not really get to know Landon the person. I feel that the author poorly attempted to make him likable but I came to the conclusion that he was only likable when he was around Tessa. Otherwise I felt that this book was not necessary for the most part, the author could have told his story in one of the After series. For instance, she could have had his perspective in a story, but to devote an entire book for him? What a waste of time. I also felt that the story wad rushed and lacked depth as her previous works. There were a few blissful scenes here and there, but it fell flat on many areas.

I hope that we have another book of Zed, he was my favorite character in the series. However, it has to be fully developed, not a lackluster personality like Landon. Otherwise, I will advise the author to concentrate on other characters that will make an impact.

Decent for the most part, but the three stars are very generous of me!

First of all: I’m team Nora and I don’t like Dakota, not even a tiny bit.

Second: I’m disappointed but not really. My point is... I read the “After” series by Anna Todd and I enjoyed it even though everyone seemed to hate it. I gave 5 stars to all of them if I remember right and I liked the way the author writes, but, this series is different mainly because of the characters. Call me drama queen, maybe what I liked about “After” was the drama, maybe it was Tessa & Hardyn, but this “new” series is just not my cup of tea.
I was never a major fan of Landon to begin with and even if he kinda grew on me in this book I still don’t like Dakota, I like Nora but don’t love her and Tessa is barely in the book... and the plot is not the best in my opinion, once again maybe because the drama is not as intense as in the other author’s books.

Overall I still wanna read the second book because of the way this one ended, so I’ll give that to Anna Todd, she can always do that to the reader, even if the book is not your cup of tea you want to know what happens next.

This spin-off from the After series is a great one for the angst readers and the ones that love a good love triangle. Nothing More is about Tessa's roommate Landon.

Landon moves to NY to be close to his girl friend Dakota. Oh my, she is a peach lol. She is a good villain that you also kinda like. Then there is Nora, she is friends with Tessa. My only issue with this triangle was Landon and how wishy-washy he was. He was sooo whipped by Dakota. He also sounded a bit feminine in the way Anna wrote him.

Anna Todd fans are going to love her latest release and I think anyone that hasn't read her but loves a good angsty triangle will enjoy this as well.

ARC in exchange for honest review

When this one comes out I'm planning on changing my "one star for book one" perspective and giving it a second chance and binge reading the series. <3

This is the first part of the Landon duet from the writer of the After series. If you have read this series you will most likely remember Landon, Hardin’s stepbrother.

Landon is the classic nice guy. The guy who gets friended by cute girls because he is sweet and lacks the confidence to ask for what he wants. He is sensitive, thoughtful and a great guy to have in your circle of friends. He has been a godsend for Tessa during her ups and downs with Hardin and now they are flatmates in New York

Landon has had one girlfriend and she broke his heart when they went their separate ways for college. You never really forget your first everything and Landon still wonders what life could have been like if he and Dakota were still together. Now that she is in New York too he may get a chance to find out?

However, another girl has caught his eye, one that makes him feel very differently than what he did with Dakota. Seeing as she was the only girl he has ever loved or been with he isn’t sure what to do about these feelings for Nora. I guess I will have to read the next book to find out who he chooses.

I listened to the audio version of this story.

"Nur weil man nicht jedem gleich die Visage einschlägt, der die Freundin ansieht, ist sie einem doch nicht egal. Nur weil man sie nicht eifersüchtig bewacht oder jedes Mal aufheult, wenn sie mit einem anderen Mann redet, ist man doch nicht desinteressiert oder schwach. Es heißt bloß, dass man sich unter Kontrolle hat, andere mit Respekt behandelt[...]"

Also genau das Gegenteil von dem, was Hardin die ersten zwei Bücher getan hat?

Das Landon eine wirklich andere Persönlichkeit als Hardin hat, wussten wir ja schon aus den anderen Büchern, hier hat sich das ganze nur noch bestätigt: Landon ist ein netter Kerl. Versteht mich nicht falsch, ich finde es toll, dass er so nett zu beinahe jedem ist und alle mit Respekt behandelt, aber wo bleiben denn da die Emotionen? Liebe, Wut, Freude? Ich hatte teilweise das Gefühl, dass Landon sich davor fürchtet, echte Gefühle zu zeigen und nur nicht anecken möchte. Er denkt zwar ständig über Gott und die Welt nach, aber ich habe ein bisschen Tiefsinnigkeit vermisst.



Vor allem im Vergleich zu den anderen After-Büchern ist hier einfach sehr wenig passiert, obwohl es durch die Situation mit Dakota und Nora wirklich genug Potenzial für Drama gab. Möglicherweise ist das alles in Drama-Queen Dakota investiert worden?

Natürlich werde ich aber sicher auch Band 2 lesen, da Anna Todd´s Schreibstil genauso flüssig wie eh und je ist und außerdem wird da dann vielleicht einiges von dem aufgedeckt, das in diesem Band nur angedeutet wurde.

P.S. Bin ich die Einzige, die dachte, Landon fängt etwas mit Posey an? Die waren doch wirklich süß zusammen in den ersten Szenen :)
