I was having a hard time picking out something to read and this book popped up as available at the elibrary. I sometimes wonder if during my first read through a book, it was a fluke that I liked it (ie: No Where But Home) so I checked out I’ll Meet You There and fortunately, I loved it even more the second time. It wasn’t remotely hard to get into and I loved it from the very beginning. My heart broke all over again for Josh and Skylar. The Josh chapters had much more of an impact, I could feel the desperation in his words instead of me trying to figure out what was going on like the first time.

It makes me sad that there aren’t any holds on the book because I just want to make everyone check it out and enjoy it, and love it.

I’m not sure what happened with this one, I was really enjoying this book and then, all of a sudden, I wasn’t. It might have been because I started I’ll Meet You There and realized that this book doesn’t even come close to that one, especially given their similar story lines (young girl, trying to get out of small town America). I  could just see where this book was going and it was so frustrating to watch Hudson mess it all up. She also annoyed me a little, she was fairly spineless towards other people, and while at the end she did start facing her problems, it was so frustrating that a few simple conversations could have fixed all of her problems. Anyway, I still enjoy Sarah Ockler’s writing so I’ll give her next book a try!

Cute, especially the notes between Linus and Audrey. But for a book about mental health, I was hoping for something that packed a bit more punch. It was enjoyable but fairly unmemorable for me. Kudos to Sophie Kinsella for always being able to write very readable novels.

This is not at all what I was expecting, more of a chick lit romcom instead of the erotic romance novel I thought I was about to read. Cute but not sure I need to read the next books in the series.

“Twenty Boy Summer” is an incredibly misleading title. I was fully expecting something light and fluffy and that was not this book at all. It was cute, and sad, and heart warming, and ended up being a really good book.
