Sapir | 94 comments I read it on my Kindle, and I'm 13% through (chapter 6).
So far I didn't really understand what the plot is about and where the romance is (there are no guys yet)... XP


Gisbelle Disappointing? lol ... I'll start soon and I'm about 70% in my current read and will start the book right after that!

I almost finish my current read now... Cannot wait to start!!!


Deepika (deepika3) Hahahaha..! Its good.. Which one are u reading ryt now?


Gisbelle Existence (Existence Trilogy, #1) by Abbi Glines .. it's for a buddy read. I am about 80% done now. So Fixing Delilah, here I come :D


Deepika (deepika3) Just finished it... Anyone else completed??


Gisbelle Deepika wrote: "Just finished it... Anyone else completed??"

Really? I am only 1/4 in the book. I'll finish it tomorrow :)


Sapir | 94 comments Deepika wrote: "Just finished it... Anyone else completed??"
I'm not reading THAT fast... I'm 25% through.

This book reminds me SO MUCH of Second Chance Summer and The Last Song. These two books are very good, but how many times can I read a book about a girl spending her summer with her family in a place she haven't been to for a long time, meeting her now-hot childhood friend? I really hope the plot will get a little more original as I keep reading.


Trisha Yes, I finished it yesterday too, Deepika!

And I'm in total agreement with Sapir! The story isn't all that original.

I'll be interested to see what you guys think when you're done!


Deepika (deepika3) I thought so too!!
I expected more from Sarah Ockler after Twenty boy summer. It could have been so much more..!
It was like all the Sarah Dessen books!
Summer.. Family Drama.. Boy.. Love..(view spoiler) Nothing original!

KindleCousins  (kindlecousins) | 21 comments Its blah so far

『Hailey』 | 8 comments I'm starting. Interesting chapter 1 lol. I didn't know this is a book about spending summer time with family (hey that's like her Twenty Boy Summer book too)

I haven't read her other books, but I think I am going to like this one :) I love how she told the story. It's easy to understand.


Gisbelle I finally finished the book description
I love Patrick.. Well, yes, I am always a sucker for boys who play musical instruments and he can also sing, which is even better.


Deepika (deepika3) Yup..!! I love guys who play guitars! :P
How was the book?


Gisbelle I liked it! I loved that my prediction was not correct. (view spoiler) I hate books that are easy to guess what happens next.

Trisha I think I would have liked it more if it was about 100 pages longer. I wanted more story - more background about the mom and the aunt and more of Delilah digging up history. More pages to understand where everyone was coming from.
I did like it, I just think I could have loved it if I'd just known a little more of the characters.

I didn't guess that particular secret either (I agree that I pondered your idea too!!) but I had a feeling something was off with what the mom was saying. :)


Gisbelle You are right, Trish. The book didn't tell us much about the other characters.

I thought the same!! I thought she was Steph's daughter too!!!


Gisbelle Of course... She even looked like Steph.


Deepika (deepika3) Yup.... and the way she thought about her aunt always...
Anyways.. I just love Sarah Ockler writing style!


Gisbelle I have to read her other books :) I don't know why but I don't like Delilah very much. :P


Deepika (deepika3) Nobody did :P
But she is a good author.
I am sure U will like Twenty boy summer. Maybe we can add it to our weekly read!

Sure why not? but we have 11 weeks planned out already. And I don't think I can wait til then XD


Sapir | 94 comments Why is it taking me so long to read this book?
I'm only 60% through.
