Indtil nu har en kæreste slet, slet ikke været en af mine prioriteter. Men det har bare en enkelt nat med Parker fuldstændig forandret. Han er vedholdende, og han ved, hvad han vil have – mig! Han behandler mig ikke, som om jeg er skrøbelig. Men han ved heller ikke noget. Og jeg er ikke klar til at fortælle ham det.

Nogle gange er livet skørt. For fire år siden blev jeg ke

4 Not Much Left of Me Stars!

'Someone once told me that it’s not about whether there is life after you die, but whether you’re alive before you die. I didn't believe I could ever feel alive again. Not until Parker.' I am Aundrea McCall, and I am a survivor.'
It can break you.
Or it can make you stronger.
I choose stronger.
I choose survival.

Wow, this one's a tearjerker!

Jessica's Book Review
What’s Left Of Me had me at EVERY page! I couldn’t put down my Kindle to eat, to clean, to sleep until I read to the end. It is such an emotional, yet sexy, fun, and sad read all in one. Because of books like What’s Left of Me is why I LOVE to read and why I LOVE book boyfriends because I have a new one and his name is Parker Jackson… he’s all mine ladies!



I was immediately drawn into the story from the first page. What’s Left of Me is written in the point of view of 21 year-old Aundrea. At firs

"I am Aundrea McCall, and I am a survivor."

Aundrea was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 17 and apparently it decides to come back again four years later.

She moves in with her adopted sister, Genna, to Rochester while getting treatment. While out one night with a friend at the club shaking her booty she meets hottie Parker. (Ok, technically she met him in the bathroom but whatever.)

4.5--Cancer Sucks and Parker Kicks Ass--Stars!!

Despite the heavy undertones of the book, the blurb grabbed me. I knew this was going to be sad. I knew it was going to hurt my heart. But I was also hoping that it would make me smile too. And it did...and it make me sigh and it made me laugh.

HOLY. SHIT. I have so much to say, and yet I'm speechless at the same time. I have a mild headache and red, puffy cheeks from crying so hard. This book made me feel so much... the good and the bad. I absolutely loved it, even minor annoyances seemed inconsequential to how much I enjoyed this. I'll address those first, so I can gush about this novel for the rest of my review:

I'll start by saying that I am a cancer survivor for 10 years now so when I read the blurb about a girl that was going through chemo and falling in love while doing it, I had to read it. I met my husband while going through chemo so it really rang home for me. I completely related to Aundrea going through her chemo and hiding it from Parker. She didn't want to be treated like the sick girl, she wanted to be treated normal. We watch as their relationship develops even while seeing how hard it is ...more

This is such a soul touching and heartbreaking book!

Not your everyday kind of book, this is deep and despite the depth of the book, this is one that's going to captivate you at every single page.

This book is heavy. The harsh reality is that most of us have been affected by cancer in some way, at times I was overwhelmed. What's Left of Me is an achingly beautiful story about a young woman's struggle, not only to survive, but to overcome her fears.

I don't even feel like a woman anymore. I look in the mirror, and all I see is this skinny, pale, empty, hairless body that has become unrecognizable. If everything that represents who I am is gone, then what's left of me.

Someone once told me that it's not about whether there is life after you die, but whether you're alive before you die.

What's Left of Me is a story about surviving, living, and love. We are introduced to Andrea McCall. Andrea isn't your typical 22 year old, she lives her life in fear and never foresees a future. At 17 years old she was diagnosed with cancer and went into remission. It is not until four years later that her cancer comes knocking a

I loved it - all the sad, happy, smile worthy, beautiful, tragic, crazy moments

I laughed, and I smiled....I teared up, but I also down right started sobbing. WOW, this book.....I've read a lot of books where another character has cancer....but I don't think i've read one where the main character did...and this was....very detailed.

Amanda Maxlyn - Author has captured my heart with this achingly beautiful debut novel full of all you could ask for and more….strength, laughter, courage, family, friendship, raw emotion, love and most importantly hope. You will fall in love with these characters and pray they will get their happily ever after.
What an emotional journey! The writer caught all the emotions of all the characters just in the right way! I connected with the heroine from beginning to end .. she is so powerful! All what she went through .. She always tries to be strong for those around her. She's a fighter and I encouraged her along the way. I felt her fears, her pain, and i fell in love along with her with Parker (I found a new book boyfrien Ladies!) he is Amazing! What a perfection! He has the whole package! What he did fo ...more

4.5 stars. Loved this book! Parker was the perfect guy. Super sweet and hot.

Why not 5 stars? The ending just didn't sit well with me. It ended on a low note when it shouldn't have. Maybe it's setting up for another book? I don't know. I would have rather it gone out with a great epilogue and been done.

If the author was trying to give me a heart attack, then she really succeeded In that with her epilogue, coz for a while my heart stopped beating.

A really emotional, heart warming book. I think this is the most underrated book I have read till now and it just makes me sad.

This book is really good on so many levels. It really makes you appreciate all the small things in life. You should live life to its fullest. You never know what's gonna happen next.

When stars really don't matter…until they do, but then they don't…or do they?


Okay so maybe I'm not the only one, but I seem to be one of the first people not shitting tears or wanting to make sweet sweet love to this book. Maybe my heart is defective, or maybe just maybe…I have a good reason for my rating. I'll attempt to explain.

Amanda Maxlyn is a debut author? This is her first published book? I can't freakin' believe it because she knocked it out of the park with WHAT'S LEFT OF ME. I have read so many great books lately from some established authors and Amanda is right there with the best of them. Frankly, WHAT'S LEFT OF ME is as honest and emotionally gripping as anything you would read from Colleen Hoover.

This book hooked me right out of the gate. The first ten percent was smoking' H-O-T! I was literally fanning mys

I wonder what other people think of this heroine... The struggles she's had, the way she pushes the hero away. Her worries about things that may seem insignificant to those who've never experienced what she has and continues to experience time and time again.

I personally judge this subject matter very harshly. Having gone through (very similar) cancer treatments in my 20s as Aundrea, it is very important to me as a reader that the author does the homework and get the emotions pertaining to the

Items ticked off: 10

Despite what my status updates on this book might imply, I did like this one. When it comes to NA, I rarely say that. For a New Adult story this is a really good one. It never felt too tropey, and that's one gigant plus in my book these days. A New Adult story that isn't tropey, believe that I will be all over it. And I was. What's Left of Me is much enjoyed by my friends and I had high expectations, maybe a little too high.

You know from the synopsis that this is likely to be an emotional book!

Amanda Maxlyn sure does get your emotions rolling!

Aundrea is a strong, level headed, beautiful lady suffering from Cancer. The author really draws you with how she is dealing with this disease, in fact you feel as if you are physically with her holding her hand!

Then we have the charismatic, absolutely adorable Parker. They have good chemistry between them. A one night stand is what she needs, to be young carefree and for on

Aundrea (her friends call her Dre) has been battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma since she was 17. She is at the point in her disease that her treatment is no longer effective and a bone marrow transplant (from her own marrow) is necessary. She has some strong chemo treatments that she needs to get through so she can receive the transplant. She is staying with her sister and her brother-in-law.

I was gifted this book to read by the author Amanda Maxlyn. I had the pleasure of reading this as an ARC and let me say, it was a delight to read.

A young girl going through the throws of Cancer, finding herself undergoing yet more treatment, having to wear a wig that was not obvious to people who had not met her before.
All she wanted, was to be treated 'normal'. Not for people to see her and the cancer. Just her.

She goes out one night with friends in the haste to be accepted and just be a normal
★¸. • * ° * ༺*Blanka*༺*°°*•.¸. ♥★

Life works in mysterious ways.

Four years ago I became known as the girl with cancer.

I refuse to cry.

And I refuse to give in.

A relationship with a man is the last thing I’m looking for right now, but one night with Parker changes everything. He is persistent, and he knows what he wants. Me.

He doesn’t treat me like I’m fragile.

But he doesn’t know, and I’m not ready to tell him.

What if it changes everything?

Tragedy found me when I was seventeen.

Love found me when I was twenty-one.

My name is Aundrea
10+++ Stars


It was a poignant, amazing, beautifully written love story..
I couldn't stop crying.
And YES, I loved every single page of this book ❤❤❤
The story tells you how to live your life, to be alive, to love, to cherish your friendship, your relationship with your parents, your brother or sister..

“It’s not about whether there is life after you die, but whether you’re alive before you die.”

I swear, when I beat this cancer I will never complain about it again. Why? Because it means I'm healthy. It means that it is a day other than Saturday. It means I have something to do, or somewhere else to be, other than at home, sick and feeling helpless.” 16 likes
