How to Quit Your Crush
Yeah, they bubbled. Maybe still do.
Good thing Anthony’s got the perfect plan: two weeks to prove just ...more
Mai is focused and driven. Antony isn’t aiming for academic excellence. The pair seem impossible, even after sharing a sweet memory. They both sign up for the same project and decide to try and quit their feelings for each other by having a 2-week fling. Their differences are apparent, but so is their connection.
This is a fun read with ...more
My apologies, but I'm going to have to gush a bit here: what a great, often hilarious, emotionally intelligent (and just plain intelligent) read this was! I love Amy Fellner Dominy's writing. Her world building, her sassy, snappy characters, and witty dialogue always have me coming back for more. She gets better and better with each new book. (I guffawed when I read her tribute to her lo ...more
Amy Fellner Dominy did not disappoint. The magic that I found in Announcing Trouble was not a fluke. I was just as enchanted with this story, every bit as charmed by the writing, and completely in love with the characters. There is such ...more
This was such an adorable story that intrigued me from the very start. The amusing synopsis is what hooked me but I stayed for the wonderful characters and excellent storytelling.
I was really a fan of the author's writing style. It was easy to follow and felt very natural. The plot of the story was intriguing from the start and worked itself out quite well.
I enjoyed these c ...more
How to Quit Your Crush was such a cute book. In it, you will meet Mai and Anthony. They were sort of together but now they aren't. Oh wait, they are.. but then they aren't? If you are confused, then that is the correct feeling. These two were trying to not be together when they really wanted to be. It was a constant roller coaster with them involved.
The reason why they couldn't be together was probably the dumbest thing I ...more
TAKE THAT LOCKDOWN ANXIETY. I finally finished a book. And I should have finished this ages ago because it was actually very good.
Edit 7 June 2020
Note: I was supposed to post this a month ago (May 5th to be exact). And I am so sorry I didn't. But I'm posting it now because I've really enjoyed both books in this YA contemporary romance series. You can read the first book's review here. And just so you know, I should mention this book contains familial grief.
The timing of this book’s re ...more
This book follows a story about Maya and Anthony. Both are having crush towards each other but Maya knows Anthony is not good for someone like her. The background of her family confirms that. Her parent ...more
Announcing Trouble was such a hit for me, and I jumped at the chance to get back into this world. I was always curious as to why Mai and Anthony didn't work out in the last book, and therefore, was interested in getting the full story. I must say, I was surprised by some of the things I learned about these ...more
How to Quit Your Crush was an adorably sweet young adult romance that had me swooning like a little school girl falling for her first crush! Mai and Anthony were an unlikely pair and even though she was convinced that he was the WRONG guy for her, I just knew that he was Mr. RIGHT and she would eventually realize that he might just happen to be her happily ever after. With every moment these two shared I found myself falling even more hopelessly ...more

How to Quit Your Crush by Amy Fellner Dominy is a sweet summer story about Mai and Anthony and their efforts to stop being attracted to each other.
Obviously things do not go as planned (not a spoiler!) and that's when the fun begins.
I liked the dynamics of the book and how different but at the same time similar our characters are. They b ...more
This can be read as a standalone but it will spoil Announcing Trouble!
I found myself completely addicted to this story and ended up reading it in one sitting. I could not put this book down and I was so desperate to find out how their story finished. This book made me laugh, i ...more
These characters were really great! I loved Anthony! Oh, my word! This boy! He made me laugh so much! He was all charm and bad-boy swagger (the innuendo and lines that came out of his mouth!) mixed with this good heart and a serious addiction to Mai ...more
Despite the Wattpad-romance cover, this book is excellent!
Mai is determined, a planner, and she expects to be what she is expected to be, a Senn, however she is adopted and feels out of place sometimes.
Anthony is a slacking high school student who is and hangs out with jocks, he also experienced a tragedy— losing his father to cancer.
The synopsis defines their new relat ...more
As soon as I saw Fellner-Dominy was releasing another YA novel, I knew I needed to read it. I didn’t even read the blurb. So it was a pleasant surprise to be put in the same world as Announcing Trouble, and my excitement somehow grew even more. The author nails the fragile but exciting precipice of adulthood again with, How to Quit Your Crush.
Maya seemed to be a manifestation of anxiety. I found this critical (and it caused a few adorable scenes) in today’s world. Not just teens ...more
This was a little tale of opposites attracting in the cutest way. Maya, aka, Mai, is a type a personality. She has a plan for her future. A future that doesn’t have room for high school baseball star, Anthony. But for some reason, the two of them can’t stop thinking about each other.
“If you weren’t such a pain in my ass, I’d kiss you right now.”
“If you weren’t such a pain in my ass, I’d let you.”
It started during spring break of senio ...more
I actually really liked this but did not end up loving it as I expected. The chemistry was on fire, the banter was swoony, the writing (unsurprisingly) was amazing. But mother eff, this was probably the most frustrating book I've ever read. I don't know why, but the back and forth about Mai and Anthony's feelings with each other just pissed me off. The repetivive "we can't be together because we have nothing in common but holy sh*t we can't stop t ...more
Despite the differences between them they are drawn to each other. The come up with the perfect plan which includes two weeks of dates that are sure to turn into a horrible time but they ...more
Mai is smart and has a plan for her future that does not include rekindling her romance with Anthony, the cute baseball player who lives in the moment. They decide on one last fling to get their feelings out before moving on with separate lives.
Mai and Anthony are so opposite, but it works for them. He helps her conquer fears and see that she doesn't have to follow her parents lead if she doesn't want to. She helps him figure out what he wants for the future and supp ...more
Anthony and Mai are complete opposites and they don't make sense on paper. Now, if they could only convince themselves of that and so they decide to have a 2 week fling to make each other hate the idea of being together. I LOVED this premise!
Anthony. I swooned so hard over this guy. And you just love him more and more as the story goes on.
Mai is a level headed, goal oriented gal ready to head off to college after graduating.
There are so many lessons that can be learn ...more
Super cute and light read. I loved how they both seemed so different on the surface but that wasn’t the reality. The dates were super fun and I loved their snarky flirty interactions.
Young Adult, Contemporary Romance, Sports
First Person, dual-POV
This is the second book with characters from the same school, but it can be read as a stand-alone. I haven't read the first book and have understood everything.
Mai and I were nothing more than a science experiment. We joked about it. Complete opposites in every way. Vinegar and baking soda, she said. A chemical reaction that bubbles.
Addictiveness: 5/5 This was wonderful! It was a...more
Maya and Anthony or two characters readers will resonate with immediately. Both are crushing hard on each other but both know that being in a relationship will not work out as they come from two differen ...more
