"Like your favorite song, More Than Maybe burrows inside your heart and stays there. Vada and Luke's story of music, family, and first love will shoot to the top of your book playlist. A rich, sweet, rock and roll ride." - Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces and How to Make Friends With the Dark

I loved the writing style, smart musical knowledge and intellectual references, I loved supporting characters and it was fast, easy, mostly sweet reading but I’m reading “You’d Be Mine” at the same time and that really confused the hell of me (By the way: there was nothing wrong about the book)
I could give this one four solid stars even though I ...more
I just finished You'd Be Mine a few weeks ago... But I am so ready for this book.
5 stars I’m giving this book all the stars
Ok, you all need to add More Than Maybe to your TBRs right now! Seriously, this book was A M A Z I N G And yes, it totally deserves capital letters
I haven’t read Erin’s debut yet but after reading and loving More Than Maybe I’m definitely going to read it
More Than Maybe stirred my heart. There are two POVs, Luke and Vada’s, and they are perfect. I loved to read about their love for ...more
“Are you there God? It’s me smitten”. I am completely smitten with this story, Luke and Vada, and everything in between. Vada is a “middle-aged, overweight, receded-hairline soul” stuck in an 18 year olds body. She has a plan, a ...more
I looked LONG AND HARD for this book. I emailed publicity contacts, I entered contacts, I scoured the ARC trade pages on Twitter and Facebook, I was denied THREE TIMES on Edelweiss.
Then I saw that my author friend Liz Lawson (please go preorder her book it's FABULOUS) received a copy from Erin and I knew this was it--THIS WAS MY CHANCE! Liz lives very close to me, so I begged her to let me borrow it and she did ...more
I have seen a lot of love for You'd Be Mine online and a lot of excitement for More Than Maybe. I haven't read You'd Be Mine yet, even though I really want, because I know it's heavier. But, I knew that More Than Maybe would have a super sweet male main character and that was basically enough for me to want to read. And then I found out there's mutual pining and I kind of just exploded.
After reading this book, I kind of just want to launch myself right into You'd Be ...more
Thanks to Wednesday Books and Edelweiss for providing me with a free copy to review!!
Remember all those little moments: the bashful smiles, the nightmare blushes that sprang to your cheeks unbidden. Feel the breath catch in your throat and the flutter in your stomach swoop all over again simply because you caught a whiff of his cologne, her perfume, realizing right then and there how unfair it was for another person to smell so damn good. Recall the elaborate daydreams, the "doesn't even know I exist" doubts, your silly ...more
Luke Greenly loves music, but doesn’t want to be in the spotlight. The son of a famous punk rocker, Luke has all his father’s talent, with none of his desire for fame. He prefers to create music in secret, with no intention of ever performing for others. He also has a secret crush on ...more
I loved You'd Be Mine so I knew this one wouldn't be any different. As I expected, I sacrificed sleep to finish this book in less than two nights. I am a diagnosed insomniac and take prescription medication and it seriously didn't even work when reading this book. Erin Hahn beat out my Lunesta and Trazadone cocktail. Kudos.
This book follows Luke, the son of a punk rocker who runs a podcast with ...more
Erin Hahn's books are absolutely a YA version of Taylor Jenkins Reid's celebrity-verse, and I'm not mad at it.
More Than Maybe follows podcaster Luke Greenly and music blogger Vada Carsewell, who both work out of the same club and attend the same high school. There's some intense mutual pining going on (and has been for years), but neither of them has ever acted on it. The two are thrown together for a school project, and bond over their mutual love of music.
More Than Maybe isn't ...more
I fell in love with the characters, the story, the swoon feeling, the music. One of the best YA I've read. My 2020 favorite so far—and even though it's still early and I've only read like15 others, I'm sure Vada and Luke and their music nerdiness will stay with me a lot while.
I immediately fell in love with Vada and Luke and their journeys. This book perfectly encapsulates what I love and believe should be in more YA stories:
1. Family that can come from anywhere
2. The belief: you are never too old for a second chance
3. It’s okay to break away from those who seek to break you
Once again, Hahn blew me away with her lyrical poetry, and what I loved about this ...more
I spent most of this book alternating between being impressed at the exceptional punk references (since it’s not a terribly popular genre and also a genre I grew up on) and ...more
Erin started writing her own books when her little sister gave her shade about a country music-themed Twilight fanfic. By day, she gets to share her favorite stories with her elementary students. By night, she writes swoons. Erin married her own YA love interest whom she met on her first day of college and has two kids who are much, much cooler than she ever was at their age. She lives in ...more
