Because my old review for this was trash, we're just going to rewrite the whole review.
Kyle and Kimberly are the perfect high school couple. Quarterback and cheerleader. If that doesn't scream cliche I don't know what does. Then Kimberly decides she doesn't want to be with Kyle and breaks up with him on the night of their graduation party. To make matters worse, they get in a car accident right after she breaks the news. Kyle wakes up in a hospital only to find out that Kimberly is dead. He mee

I’m sorry to say this story didn’t work for me on any level, so I’m going to keep my review short. I really enjoyed this author duo’s FIVE FEET APART, so I was eager to see another story from them. The cover is pretty and it felt like a style that fitted with their previous book.

This story takes the reader through death, loss, grief, healing, recovery and yet, does it really? From the first few pages, this story forced a seemingly emotional story on the reader. It felt too much, too soon. The pr

Before I start rambling about how amazing the story is, I would like to take a moment to appreciate the title and book cover of my new favorite book. The book cover instantly grabbed my attention the moment I laid my eyes on it. As it gave me all the Disney vibes which I am all up for.

As far as the book is concerned, I don’t have enough words to describe how breathtakingly beautiful it was. After reading the first line of the book I knew it won’t let me down.

The story starts with Kyle and Kimbe

Well I guess I might be in the minority for this one.

I won't say too much other than I just don't seem to be drawn into stories from these writers. I can't quite put my finger on it but I suspect it is a bunch of little things that collectively prevent me from getting invested in the characters or the story itself. I liked the first section and then my mind just slowly drifted away from this story and towards funny You Tube clips of cats. I was also watching my own kittens chase leaves outside

The capability these two authors have to create such beautiful stories is out of this world.

I absolutely loved Five Feet Apart so I was incredibly excited to win this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

I loved every ounce of this story, the characters and the complete roller coaster of emotions that just happened for me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
1/5 stars

I was looking forward to this having heard wonderful things about,Five Feet Apart. Unfortunately I found this wasn't for me. I did not find the characters enjoyable in anyway shape or form. I tried pushing through to see if I was going to get to a point where I loved it but it dragged for me. The twist itself honestly annoyed me and made it even harder for me to get invested into the story. It took me days to push through it and honestly I think this isn't worth the read.

Hi, ok so, I loved Five Feet Apart. I loved it so much I read it in one day. This book is not Five Feet Apart, and I don't think my head could wrap around that fact haha

Thank you, Edelweiss and Simon Teen for the e-arc.

This story centers around Kyle, who's involved in a tragic car accident and wakes up to his world unraveled. In the wake of tragedy, he meets a girl named Marley. Marley is going through her own grief and she and Kyle form a bond soon after. But wait. This story has a twist that m

What the fish happened in the last 100 pages?

I mean before that it was a solid 4 star read!
Maybe I'm the only person on Earth who hasn't read or seen "Five Feet Apart", so I wasn't on the Mikki Daughtry train before reading this book. But now I can understand the hype a little more.

YA Contemporary as a genre for me is usually hit or miss, mostly because it relies on too many tropes, which many young readers eat up. They don't know any better; most won't have read that many books to know how overdone some of them can be! But unfortunately for this age-ed reader, most of this book was u
All This Time is my first book by these authors. It is an emotional Young Adult contemporary romance.

The narrator is 18 year old Kyle (1st person POV).

Kyle, Sam (guy) and Kim are best friends. They are graduating high school and the night of their celebration something happens. The first chapter had so much happening. I'm honestly not sure if I have ever read a beginning of a book where more happened.

It is pretty unusual for me to read a YA book that only features the male POV. But it was an int

📗 All This Time just sent me on the biggest emotional rollercoaster ride this year, my emotions going from bored, to shocked, to flipping madly through the pages, attempting not to sob hysterically before suddenly sinking back to boredom again. In short, this first half of this book seems like your typical contemporary romance before dropping the biggest plot twist, but the ending just seemed a little over the top.

This cover. Just WOW.
This story. NOT WOW.

"'Okay', she says finally. 'Once upon a time-'
'Why do all stories start like that?' I ask. I don't want to break the spell, but the question is out before I can stop it.
She smiles. 'Not
all of them. Only the best ones.'"
which is why this book did not start with "Once upon a time."
The story is good. Confusing, but good. But after this heart breaking master piece, All this Time was disappointing.

“i will always believe in fairy tales. i will always believe in true love. just try and stop me.”

i loved the first part of the book. i very quickly connected to kyle - i guess the fastest way to my heart is through pizza rolls.

then a twist came and like woah. so surprising, but also, it turned like major fairytale for me. everything was just too perfect. like, not in a bad way though?

i finished the fairytale and decided to read the author’s note and it 100% made the book for me. mikki talks abo

What a GORGEOUS book! Not only was I blown away yet again by the authors’ writing styles, but this story took me places. I cried and laughed multiple times while reading it, and once within about 2 minutes of each other. Would highly recommend this!! Would also be a good book to get out of a reading slump!!!!

I loved this!! Great story and romance!

Kyle was really sweet and very flawed, which made him relatable. His character did swear quite a bit though and that was definitely not needed. That was the only reason I knocked off a star:(

Kim was okay. Even if she did like Sam, she could have told Kyle, instead of making him realize it after she "died." She did renew herself by getting Marley the puppy, though.

Sam was a really great friend and I feel bad that he had to sit and watch his b

Sometimes you just have to read a YA story with all the usual tropes. I think this is one of those books that you should read without knowing what's going to happen, and also be willing to stick it out. Without revealing any spoilers, I started out being really annoyed by Kyle. As one of his friends said at least once, "It's not always about you." So yeah, I was really annoyed by him. Fortunately, he does slowly learn his lesson, but it takes many tries with a few false starts. But I loved the s ...more

3.75 - 4.25 ish

I fairly enjoyed this book. I thought this book was a cute and sad story. My favorite parts of the book was the middle were Marley and Kyle was in love, and all that. And my other favorite part was the ending.

I am not to sure which book I like the best. Five feet apart or this book. I fairly enjoyed both books, I probably enjoyed the other book slightly more, but I like both books about / close to the same since I also gave five feet apart a 4 star.

I received an ebook copy of this book in exchange for my honest review via Netgalley, with thanks to them and the publisher. This fact has not impacted upon my review of the book.

This book took me on a whirlwind journey. It was a heartbreaking, picture-perfect, jaw-dropping brilliant journey about self-discovery and how powerful our brains can be.

I mean... wow. I wanted to read this because I enjoyed their previous novel, but I didn't know exactly what to expect or what I was getting myself into, but this was a powerful read.

Let me tell you, the writing in this book was amazing, it kept me on my toes nearly the entire time and I wasn't disappointed. From start to finish I was sucked into the story, and that's not
