Think of every single YA cliché with the cheesiest and corniest lines and I present to you this book. This book is so predictable and cliché and tbh the only reason it got an extra star was because of the funny sexual jokes, I couldn't help but laugh,,, okay?? Don't give me those eyes man, they were some good jokes.

uhhhhh no I'm not reading this very short contemporary for my reading challenge.

I like the idea of losing the phone and got familiar with each other through texting but this one was so a bit boring! I tried but I struggled so much. I thought maybe it’s funny but nope I didn’t even crack a smile. So I gave up… Hope you enjoy it more than me!
Here's the deal. Is there a good story in this book? Yes there is. Is it told the right way? No.
I feel like the book in the form I read it in isn't the final draft. It's two drafts before the final draft. I liked everything it had to offer, I just didn't like it enough.
If I was the editor I'd say that the dialogue is a bit off, there should be a few more dialogue tabs here and there, the characters need to be worked on and the plot is predictable.
As a reader I had trouble with all of this. It's

Textrovert by Lindsey Summers, originally published on Wattpad as The Cell Phone Swap, is a sweet YA contemporary romance.

Keeley is celebrating the end of her summer vacation at a local fair with her best friend Nicky and her twin brother Zach when she realizes she lost her phone. Thankfully, after a bit of panicked searching, she manages to find it... Or at least she thinks it's her phone that she found .

Later that night she gets a phone call from a complete stranger telling her that they

I don't read Wattpad novels.
I have what you call a serious aversion to them.
It's just the lack of professional editing and the amateur approach to an otherwise possibly brilliant plot really makes me cringe.

Yeah, yeah. No need to rub it in.

Textrovert is a story about two strangers who accidentally switch phones and start a friendship over it. It pretty much a cute high school story about showing your true self and not what people think over you. It pretty much was like Romeo & Juliet with text messages since the main couple were from rival schools where the football teams couldn't stand each other.It also got a little bit of Beauty and t
Nice slow paste to the story, a lot of dialogue which is often something I´m missing in contemporary YA. bonus points for that.

I'm a little sad to give this book 3 stars because it feels a lot like betraying my 16-year-old self, who read this when it was titled The Cell Phone Swap , and who waited for new chapters day and night. It was a bittersweet experience--to once again read about Keeley and Talon, the characters I've grown to love when I used to write my own stories on Wattpad.

The thing is, I really appreciate what they did with this book. As The Cell Phone Swap, the book was long, sometimes pointlessly long, a

This was cute, fun, and perfect for summer. I really liked Keeley's and Zach's relationship. I'm all for supportive and loving siblings. I thought more time was going to be spent in anonymity but I still liked how it played out. I wish Nicky had more to do/ more of a presence. By the end you started to feel the back-and-forth but it made sense. Overall, I enjoyed this and had a good time reading it.

Yes, this rating is abnormally high for me but I read this a while back so that must be why. I had no idea this was the same book as The Cell Phone Swap until I heard the name "Talon"—which is quite a unique name. ...more

I had already read The Cellphones Swap in Wattpad 2016 before I knew it will be published. Tbh, I like The Cellphones Swap more than Textrovert. 😂

Maybe because Textrovert was the fast paced version of The Cellphones Swap. And that's why I'm not enjoyed this book as much as the wattpad version.

I received this E-ARC via Netgalley and Kids Can Press in exchange for an honest review. I had intially heard about this book back when it was on Wattpad titled The Cell Phone Swap. At the time I DNFed. I saw a friend on GR who added the book and was surprised to see that it was getting published. I decided to give it a go in hope that I would enjoy it and I also really liked Keeley. Unfortunately I did not.

Textrovert by Lindsey Summers is a quick read that is absolutely adorable. I really enjoyed the concept of switching phones by mistake and the super sweet main character. However, I feel as though the book was lacking in certain areas, and it would have been better if it was more developed. I still do recommend it if you are looking for a quick and easy read this summer.

This book’s concept is one that I knew would be adorable from the start. The main chara

So I am excited to see how it come out in print.
The editing is really good.
Question and plot hole that I've been asking when reading Wattpad version is now has been covered up and answered.

Textrovert by Lindsey Summers was sweet and super cute. After accidentally grabbing the wrong phone, Keely and Talon get to know each other over the week before they have a chance to exchange the phones to the rightful owners. Under the guise of anonymity they are able to be themselves and get to know each other honestly, or as honestly as it may seem on a surface level. After swapping phones, they still can’t get enough of each other. However, their true identities might actually get in the way ...more

I’ve had really good luck finding cute YA novels lately. This is one of those sweet books where you know a happy ending is practically guaranteed.

Honestly, this book was a delight to read.

I’ve read so many depressing books recently and this was the pick-me-up I was looking for. There need to be more happy books like this.

I give up.
I can‘t read further.

Here's why:
- The third person narrative doesn‘t fit here. It would be much better if it would be written in first person.
- The texts. B-O-R-I-N-G.
- Talon called Keeley in the middle of the night and when she worriedly asked what happend, his response was: ‘Never mind, it‘s nothing.‘ I hate that.
- I didn‘t like any of the characters. They were uninteresting.
- Talon helped Keeley with a complicated math assignment through a phone. How realistic is that

Thank you KCP Loft for the ARC of Textrovert! This was such a cute contemporary read for the summer. I will definitely pick this up in the future.
This book was cute. That's about all I can say about it. It wasn't awful but I didn't love it. It was a quick read and a cute story overall.

I'm a sucker for a "falling in love via text/email/online" story, which was what originally drew me to this book. I thought that part of the story was done well overall, although I don't think they were given enough time to really get to know one another. However, it didn't feel like instalove when they met either and I don't think they ever actually said th

I originally got this from NetGalley, but the ARC didn't format well on my Nook and all the texts were missing. Since the texts are obviously an important part of the story, I didn't end up reading it then. It finally came to my library, though, and I was excited . Keely was mostly likable, but was kind of frustrating a lot of times. There were several very cute moments between her and Talon, but I thought Talon was a little too much of a jerk to really ever love him. I felt like the ending was ...more

In no way is this a bad book, I just found it hard because I was comparing Textrovert to the original book that I read on Wattpad known as The Cell Phone Swap. I still really love Lindsey's writing, it flows so well and the characters she creates are so realistic. But my 3 star rating comes from how lacking it is in depth and descriptions. I was left waiting for more in certain scenes but it felt like it cut off early and went straight to the next chapter. And there were certain moments from The ...more

The book is very superficial and not very well written, but the worst part is that the male lead does something really awful. And they have the girl that suffered with what he did try and make the female lead forgive him. That conversation is just insane, I can't get over it. ...more

I liked the premise, and it could have been a cute story...but the writing was fairly bad (large jumps in time and content, awkward dialogue) and the characters had all the depth of a teacup.

This book was so good!!! I LOVED it! A good, clean romance is what you need every now and then and this was a great book! It was not as good as some teen ya romances that I have read but it was still good. I loved all of the characters and the plot. There were a few things that were in it that I would not recommend to girls (or guys) under the age of 14 to read. There were a few swear words and another part that wasn't exactly appropiate but not inapptopiate. (Nothing to do wit
