It's harder to get over someone who was never really yours.

They say rock stars get all the girls. But Miki knows that's not always true. He, for one, though the guitarist of popular indie band Trainman, just can't seem to get the girl. It's kind of his fault, really. No one told him to fall in love with Jill. No one told him to stand still and watch as she moved on from a

You can listen to my Songs to Get Over You playlist on Spotify. You can see the tracklist in Tumblr.

Songs to Get Over You solidifies my love for Playlist series. This is where my love for Miki has grown into something more. I like to call this book as an unrequited love with a happy ending.

This standalone sequel follows the story of Miki. He’s the best friend of Jill, he’s also the guitarist of indie band Trainman. He’s hopelessly in love with Jill, and she doesn’t have any idea. Given that

I enjoyed this one...for the most part. It does feel like an incomplete book. I say that because the focus seems to be more on Mikhail trying to get over his feelings for his best friend, who also happens to be the heroine of the previous book.

I actually really liked their interaction. The author was able to really capture the genuine affection between them. She was also able to capture the pain, the confusion and the eventual letting go of old feelings and embracing new ones.

While I was reading this story, I heard this song being aired on the radio, "I'll never get over you... getting over me...." Oh my. I'm telling you, I just had goosebumps! How cosmic that I get to hear this song being played on the airwaves while I was reading a book that contained beautiful songs for people trying to move on from heartbreak.. It was intense, really!

Miki, one of the guitarists of the rock band, Trainman, is great in writing songs. Apparently, he's great at hiding his feelings to

I am a sucker for the friend zone. Mostly because I wrote about it, but also because they seem to be the most painful kind of unrequited love. You kind of have them, but also, you kind of don't. You love them, and they love you, but also not kind of the way you love them. Painful, yes?

But I also really like guys who make the move, so I declared that I was #TeamShinta when I read the first book in Jay E. Tria's Playlist Series, Songs of Our Breakup . What's not t

THIS IS SO GOOD. SO REALLY GOOD. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My first book from a Filipino author with Filipino characters and Philippines setting.

I love everything about this book. The characters the writings the songs. My heart was in pain along with Ana i understand her and her feelings and her actions. and I dint blame Miki for that because he's struggling and I understand his struggles. I LOVE THE SONG LYRICS SO MUCH IS THERE AUDIO FILES FOR IT?

My only problem is that the characters dont fe

Life in the friend zone...

I adore Jay E. Tria's style. I love her refreshing prose, the tactile quality of her writing and, in the Playlist books, that dreamlike space she creates between the diary-like, back-and-forth timelines and the clever song lyrics that act as narrative bookends to her chapters. In Songs to Get Over You, she goes one step further, walloping with such hugot lines as:

"I knew you still love [her]...I'd be stupid not to know it. But I thought I could help you move on from her

This might make me sound horribly conservative, but I used to hate books where the girl chased after the boy.

Songs to Get Over You by Jay E. Tria changed my mind.

Both the characters in this book stole my heart in one fell swoop. Let’s starts with Ana, the driven accountant who makes a bid for Mikki’s heart. If this were some other book or some other heroine, I would’ve hated her in an instant.

But this is Ana we’re talking about.

She was the fearless girl who went after the one person she wanted.

I read this without reading Songs of Our Breakup, the first book in the series. I think this affected my reading a little, because I did not understand why Miki is in love with Jill! Sure she’s always endearingly late and is such a good friend, but she’s not the girl you fall in love with, you know? I didn’t see why she was so special to him. One of the first things the reader sees between Miki and Jill is how he’s already totally in love, and we’re just sort of forced to accept that fact.

When I ordered a copy of Summer Crush, I decided that I should start reading this. But it took me long before I finished this because of other books

But anyway, here's my review.

Miki's story is relatable in one way or another because probably, each of us has experienced being in the friendzone. (or maybe we were the one who put somebody in the friendzone)
I enjoyed reading the story in Miki's POV because it was very entertaining. I actually liked his POV better than Jill.

He is such a nice guy but

"The last time I was this much invested in bands is a vague memory so I find it amazing that Jay E. Tria’s Playlist series has managed to awaken the groupie in me. (I’m not sure if it’s healthy to be daydreaming of attending a Trainman gig at random, though.) Songs of Our Breakup and Songs to Get Over You are certified hits."

First of all let me just say that that cover is wow! I love it so much! i mean look at it! I’d totally buy that for the cover alone. And maybe for the cover model as well? Hahaha! Just kidding! Or not! Hahaha! It’s so Miki and defined a Jay E. Tria signature style together with the magic of Tania Arpa.

I've been curious about how Miki and Ana's story started ever since I read Summer Crush. I loved that I was still able to understand their narrative there even with little to no background of who or how they became together.

Now after reading this and Songs of our Breakup it gave me a more in depth idea of what they went through. I love how Jay wrote about unrequited love and how she managed to write the very intertwined and complicated relationships and feelings not only between Miki - Jill and

It is an honor to be part of this book tour and be able to review this book. Even though this could be read as a stand alone, I still decided to read the first book in the series which is Songs of Our Breakup to further understand the whole story, when and where everything started.

One of the best parts about this series is definitely THE SONGS! There are a lot of songs altogether buttt my ultimate favourite is Better Idea, written by Kim (my heart broke).

And my brightest idea
Was when I read the signs
Like lines on a map
That point to goodbye
That lead to a you that's with someone new
And a me left with silence
And my thoughts without you


Back to the book, Miki is honestly one of the sweetest (and sometimes clueless) guys ever! He's just so nice and you can tell that h

Songs to Get Over You is the 2nd book on the Playlist Series of Jay Tria. STGOY follows the story of Miki, whom we met on the first book at the bestfriend of Jil who was secretly in love with her. Unfortunately, Jil wasn't aware of his feelings at first and fell for Shinta. Anyway? In STGOY, we can read about how Miki tries to move on from his feelings for Jil. Being friendzoned is not simple thing. It hurts as hell specially when you don't have the courage to confess your feelings because you'r ...more

Patience was about knowing when it was time to translate daydreams into reality.

I'm stuck between hating this and loving this. Why? It's because I love the story line, the structure (I like the writing style plus the songs) of the book, the pacing, etc, but I kinda hate one person thing.

As I've written, this book was definitely awesome. From the first page down to the last one, I couldn't get enough of it. So where lies the problem? That would be Miki. I liked Miki since I've read the first book

Miki my precious child I was so excited to get his story after reading Songs of Our Breakup, and he did not disappoint.

First off the dynamic between the Trainman band members is always so fantastic. The author does such a great job of showing each character's personality perfectly! And the banter between them was always on point and so funny, as it usually is with closes friends.

I loved Miki with all my heart. He's in love with Jill, his best friend, and even while he's dating Ana this doesn't

OH MY GOD THE FEELS WITH THIS. STGOY is a fast favorite because I went in expecting certain things and- needless to say, I was unprepared for the bittersweet taste in my heart. I loved it all. I was grinning madly at the beginning and had these wide smiles that seemed permanent on my face sometimes. And then it got heady and my heart felt like it was going through something epic but it was in tha

One of those books that will make you crave for more once you reached that dreaded 'The End'. Why? Because I'm a sucker for the happenings AFTER they finally got together! The journey from a him and a her towards a them is quite full of feelings and I want to feel that release by reading what happens when they're together as together. Sorry for the rant, I really just want mooooore! Haha!

A heart that loves in a silent and steadfast way doesn’t usually get center stage in Filipino romance, but Tria focuses the spotlight on it with Songs To Get Over You. The novel shines with an entirely new repertoire of feels, mashed-up with a few pop culture nods (one of which only I apparently got, so far). It is a fitting second installment to her Playlist series, and I am excited to see what she’s got up her sleeve next.

I love how real the book is -- Miki may be fictional, but his feelings (and issues) make him so real. The story is more insightful than romantic, which I really really like.

Jay E. Tria is inspired by daydreams, celebrity crushes, live music, K-dramas and J-doramas, and an incessant itch to go places. She writes contemporary romance and young adult, sometimes paranormal fantasy too. When not writing, she wishes she were, but sometimes it's hard.
