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)

What a beautiful Hufflepuff summer story!

Weston, man. Just....Weston. He's brilliant and I adored him and his outlook and I felt for his internal struggle so much. The broken, hurting, optimistic, bright boys are always my favorites. He reminded me a lot of one of my own characters in that respect. And all his brothers! I LOVED IT. He was such a unique, fresh, lovable guy. I loved it.

Tessa was slightly less of an instant connection for me, but I loved her too. I felt her
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 e/>I

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

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.

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.

I originally rated this book 3 stars despite having many issues with it because I wanted to support this author, then thought about it some more and realized I wouldn't do that for other books, so for the sake of consistency, I'm knocking it down to a 2/2.5 stars. I have a full 15 min section (yikes) talking about my thoughts on this book in my June reading wrap up video on youtube, so if you want a more in-depth review, feel free to check there, but here's the sparknotes version:

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.

*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.

The choice to request this book for review was deeply personal to me. As you may or may not know, a couple of years ago my husband suffered a catastrophic injury at work and broke his back. After two months in hospital, he came home in a wheelchair. I myself am also suffering from a regular and gradual degradation of my vision, so I identified quite strongly in this novel about a temporarily blind girl and the amputee that teaches her l

100 Days of Sunlight tells the story of teenage blogger Tessa Dickenson. After Tessa is involved in a car accident, she finds herself completely blind. Doctors have hope that her sight will return in a little over three months, but for the time being, Tessa is trapped in a world of darkness. She's bitter and doe

16-year-old Tessa is blind -- well, temporarily blind, and a poetry blogger. Scarred by the memory of losing her sight in a car accident, she can barely find the motivation to get out of bed in the morning.

Weston is a runner -- and an amputee with an overwhelming sense of optimism. His missing legs are secret from one person, and one person only: Tessa. The girl he's going to teach to rely on more than sight.




100 Days of Sunlight was PRECIOUS. Cute. Adorable. Uplifting. Emotional. Empowe/>100

100 Days of Sunlight follows 16-year-old Tessa Dickinson, who recently got into a car crash and is now temporary blind. Being a poet who consistently shares her works on her blog, this obviously took her by surprise because now she feels she can’t do anything and feels trapped in the darkness. Trying to find a way to cheer up their granddaughter, Tessa’s grandpa and grandma decided to post a newspaper ad to look for a typewriter, som

Abbie is able to craft such a raw and emotional and beautiful story. I was hooked and entranced the whole way through. A glorious story of love, healing, and punching Life in the face. Such a sweet summery read.

AND oh my word I was so happy to see that Tessa was a blogger! How come you don’t see that often in YA? It was awesome.
All the characters were unbelievably great. Weston and his brothers were so c

I didn't notice when I requested this that Abbie Emmons is an indie author!! YAY! I love supporting authors who choose to go non-traditional routes. And I'm pleased to say that this has disability rep. We don't always see this trope so when I do I tend to jump at reading these books plus we have mental health and a girl who is homeschooled, a blogger and a writer. Yes, I fit the demographic of those who will want to read this book!

This book was an absolute ray of sunshine.

From the waffles, and flowers, and THE COVERRR, and yellow, and aesthetics, and soft boys, and beautiful poetry. 100 Days of Sunlight was an amazing novel that gave me all the fuzzy and warm feels (:

The book was written by a blogger a lot of you might know, Abbie Emmons, aka waffle queen!!! I was absolutely thrilled when I heard I had been accepted to join her ARC team!! 100 Days of Sunlight definitely did not disappoint and I can’t wait to s

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

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.

“Weston is everything
And all at once.
Weston is gentle
And harsh.
Weston can be blindingly bright
But then he can also be
Delicately soft.
Weston is a paradox.”
“And, actually, I was feeling pretty good at the time. My brothers were like individual rays of sunshine that had come crashing into my room to drive out the fragments of Despair. For a few minutes, everything was golden. And everything was okay.” 4 likes
