Seven Days of You
It's Sophia's last week in Tokyo, and she's going to make it count...
Sophia has spent her life ping-ponging between different countries and schools, so, in theory, saying goodbye should be easy. But now she's leaving Tokyo - the place that finally felt like home. The only way she can get through this is to make her final week perfect.
Then Jamie Foster-Collins shows up, j...more
Our main character is Sophia or "Sofa", as her friends like to call her... Yep, you probably read that sentence and knew this was my first ...more
This book has a really intriguing concept! Basically, it tells the story of a girl who has seven days left before she leaves Tokyo. When an old friend moves to Japan just as she is about to leave, their relationship develops at the most inconvenient time. I found this idea ...more
This was a YA contemporary romance about a relationship that develops over a week.
Sophia was an okay character, and I felt quite sorry for her that she was being forced to leave her home, and the way her father treated her wasn’t very nice either.
The storyline was about a whirlwind romance between Sophia and a boy called Jamie who she originally claimed to dislike. We got a couple of ...more

My biggest problem with this book is the main character. She's in high school but she acts like she's seven years old. Everything from the way she talks to how she handles situations is shockingly immature. Not to mention how her name is Sophia but her friends call her Sofa. I found that incredibly annoying and just weird. Her relationship with her best friend was messed up and ve ...more
My Experience: I started reading Seven Days of You on 3/5/17 and finished it on 3/19/17. This book shouldn’t take me that long to read but there are so many books ...more
I liked this story. I found it to be a really quick read and while it wasn't the perfect story, it did have a lot of things going for it. I thought that the range of emotions that Sophia goes through in this story really rang true. The book was a little different than I had expected from the description and while there was a romance featured in the story this book was about so much more than that.
Sophia is moving to the United States ...more
Sudden, violent, final.
I don't have that many thoughts about this book, so instead of writing a full-length review (which I will probably just be super repetitive), I will just write a short one here, and hopefully, none of you will mind.
This book was a fun, cute contemporary romance book. It gave me huge "The Sun Is Also A ...more
This wasn't a bad read, in fact, I adored the setting. It isn't often we see a setting take place in Japan with so much life around it in this g ...more
This book is very much an expat story. It's not about a girl moving to Japan and learning about it and sharing her learned experiences. It's about a teen that lives in a foreign country not but her own choice. She didn't go to Japan to discover and explore. I see a lot of reviews saying that the Japanese setting wasn't used well but I thought it was used realistically. Sophia doesn't spend her time bein ...more
Personal Thoughts: After finishing and loving P.S. I Like You by Kasie West, I decided I was on a contemporary kick and jumped right into one of my most anticipated of 2017. Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse is a book that I got an ARC of at BEA and I’d been meaning to read it before it’s March release date so I could review it here on the blog. What initially peaked my interest in Seven Days of You is the fact that it’s set in Tokyo. I love all things J ...more
This cover screams cute right?? I mean the cute couple under an umbrella, the various tones of pink, the city as their background all indicate a cute story on the inside. And it was!!
Sophia has just seven days left in Tokyo until her and her mom and sister move to New Jersey for her mom's job. That is only seven days to say goodbye to her best friend, her crush and the city that she loves. Nothing will ruin these perfect days until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back and messes up all of her ...more
I’ve come across a handful of books this year which have completely taken me by surprise, I’m pleased to say Seven Days of You was one of those books. I remember reading the blurb a few months ago, thinking it would be the sort of book that I would enjoy and although it did take me a while to get into initially, on my train back home I was completely hooked. Vinesse goes above and beyond in creating a gorgeous read in the wonderful backdrop of Tokyo. I ...more
I am going to come right out and say it, I couldn’t stand Sophia. While she was 17, she acted more like a child and it really grated on my ner ...more
Das Zitat oben steht exemplarisch für die Stimmung im gesamten Buch. Dieses beklemmende Gefühl, dass sich etwas massiv und endgültig ändern wird und man nichts dagegen tun kann. Die damit einhergehende Unsicherheit und die Hilflosigkeit, manchmal auch die Verzweiflung, das alles empfindet die Protagonistin Sophia. Und das war es, was mich von Anfang an so für das Buch einnahm, da ich ...more
Before I tell you why I loved this book so much you should know some things about me. I studied Japanese for several years & then advanced my studying at The Japan Institute in Kansai. So, although I say that I completely adored this book, it also broke my heart because I miss Japan so very much, and I cannot wait to go back. With that being said, my review maybe biased since I just love it there. **To see a few additional pictures of my own time spent in Japan visit my blog at scrillreviews ...more
I'm always beyond thankful when a publisher sends me a surprise ARC in the mail, but this one is particularly special to me. Seven Days of You arrived on my doorstep about a month before I was leaving my last quarter of college, and I started reading it two weeks before that before finally finishing it now, on the ev ...more
Sophie tiene una semana para despedirse de Tokio, una semana en la que todo puede cambiar, una semana que tiene que aprovechar al máximo antes de decir adiós a sus amigos y a su amor.
Una lectura muy ligera, que te dan ganas de visitar y conocer todo acerca de Tokio y sus rincones. Con un final perfecto.
