It came to me quite literally like a lightbulb turning on. I immediately fell in love with the idea — two characters experiencing loss, recovery, and hope; two characters connecting to help each other heal in ways they wouldn’t have been able to alone. I knew it would be a love story, but not just about romantic love — it would also be about the love between brothers, and grandparents, and friends. The story captured my heart before I even knew how it would end. (less)

The Review

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review and was in no way, shape, or form convinced or coerced into writing a positive review. These are my honest thoughts.

I considered deleting all my updates on here because it looks a bit messy, but they are part of the journey with this book and I couldn't imagine doing that, so I left them. I know, I'm probably going to annoy some people because of it, but I want to look back and be able to see my emotions for every m

I will start off my review with a disclaimer: despite being smack dab in the middle of the target age range for young adult fiction . . . YA is SO not my thing. That being said, I did still enjoy 100 Days of Sunlight at its core, even if the genre may not be my favorite ever.

First off, that cover! Well done, Ms. Emmons! It's stunning! I feel like so often indies cheap out when it comes to cover design, but it's clear Emmons put a lot of time and thought into her cover, and for that, I give her

I received an ARC from the publisher. Opinions expressed are solely my own.


Honestly, it’s still sinking in. I’m trying not to turn into a proud mom at the moment. Abbie Emmons, one of my favorite bloggers on the web, is publishing her debut novel!!

I’ve been following Abbie’s blog for as long as I can remember, so naturally I MELTED when I got chosen to ARC-read her novel. I’ve been anticipating her books ever since her NaNoWriMo

When I heard that Abbie was publishing a book, I was beyond excited. I’ve followed her off and on through the years and read a short story of hers a long while ago. I knew it would be good.

And my expectations were not disappointed.

First, this COVER! Seriously one of the beautifullest works of art EVER. It’s gorgeous as is, but after reading the story, I love it even more! I adore how pieces of the novel come together in the cover. Seriously, SO. GOOD.

Secondly, the CONCEPT! I try not to read a

I teared up a lot and smiled even more. I considered taking off a half star for my very slight qualms. But no. This book is wonderful and necessary and its own ray of sunlight. Fuller review to come

hello, my name is hannah and I don't like contemporary romance novels.


Let me explain. Over the past 4 or so years, I've been on a mission to find THE BEST contemp romance novels. And by the best I mean ones that have deep themes, minimal crude jokes (because that's lazy writing), and people being attracted because of things other than physical attributes like 'his bright blue eyes' ew.

Even before I started reading this book, I was prepared to give it three stars.

*cringes* okay, okay, don't kill me, but if there's a looooot of hype about a book, I usually won't care for it.

The truth? I l o v e d this book. I mean, first of all, I looooove how the cover ties everything, every lil' bit of this book together. Ahhhh *happy sigh*

I was completely prepared to give this baby 5 whopping stars. But...there were two things that kept me from it.

1. The language.

*ugly sobs*

This book is so beautiful. It is so heart warming. It is so inspiring.

I loved this book so much. I cannot even begin to describe how amazing this piece of art is. This book *sighs* has to be one of my all time favorites.

The characters were amazing and to die for. Every single one of them I loved. I want them to be real so I can become friends with them.

The feelings were authentic, real, and so heart breaking at times. I literally nearly started sobbing at a few parts.

I found Abbie by pure chance while looking for writing advice on the web, and I decided I would try and join her ARC team to show her my support. I don't think I'll ever regret it.

I should probably start by saying that 100 Days of Sunlight is quite far from what I would consider my genre and my niche—which is why I was surprised to enjoy it so much. But I guess the author is to thank for that: there is much of Abbie in her book, from coloured bookshelves to tasty waffles. Her spirit jumps all ar

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review

This was a lovely read! It made me feel all fuzzy and sunshine-y. Abbie inspires hope and I think she would agree with me in saying that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how long the tunnel may seem. Hope is still there, though it may be dim.

What happened to Tessa is, in her opinion, probably the worst thing that ever could happen. It was is a shopping trip gone wrong – before she even reached the mall. The collision left her suffering temporary blindness – and now she's going to be stuck in the dark for 100 days. An avid poet and blogger, she's not sure how she's going to cope. But then her grandparents put an ad in the paper for a typist – hoping that if she can keep writing poetry, her mood might lighten. Tessa hates the idea, an ...more

I received an Advanced Readers Copy of "100 Days of Sunlight" in exchange for publishing an honest review.

100 Days of Sunlight is about young poet Tessa Dickinson who has temporarily lost her eyesight. After her grandparents put out an ad in the paper looking to hire a typist for Tessa to continue her blog, annoyingly optimistic Weston Ludovico shows up at her door. Despite telling him to never come back, he shows up again. And again. And again.

Abbie Emmons has been writing stories ever since she could hold a pencil. What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into her lifelong passion. There's nothing Abbie likes better than writing (and reading) stories that are both heartrending and humorous, with a touch of cute romance and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Abbie is also a YouTuber, singer/songwri ...more
