    Listen, this book perfectly captured unrequited love for me. How it can be all encompassing, and also incredibly toxic. Wow, just wow. This book hit me hard! *also Peter is bi. Sophie is dyslexic. ...

    This was a really, really lovely exploration of codependent friendship and at what point it becomes toxic and whether there's a point at which it can be saved. I think my heart wanted to see more from the end but not in a "this book did it poorly" way; I just really liked the discussio...

    Rachel Lynn Solomon blew me away with her debut book, You?ll Miss Me When I am Gone. So, I can?t tell you how excited I was when I found out that her second novel, Our Year of Maybe was to be released soon. I NEEDED this book! I once thought that Solomon could not get any better th...

    I need to point out the fact that I am not sure when I am supposed to post this review. I signed up for the blog tour, but my name isn?t on the schedule and I got approved for the Netgalley book anyway. So I decided to just post on my chosen date just in case even though I?m not of...

    You know what, I loved this so much. The childhood friends trope, my heart, my feelings, how realistic everything felt, how three -dimensional these characters were, the sisters relationship, the families, MY FEELINGS. My heart is very happy right now. I loved this. Really, really d...

    4.5 STARS Sophie is in love with her neighbor and best friend. She can?t help hoping Peter will feel the same way after she donates a kidney to him. Peter is now free, healthy enough to live his life, go back to school and pursue his interests. If Peter doesn?t return Sophie?...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight "Because I was in love with him? the kind of love that made my throat ache with all the things I couldn?t say." This is probably going to be one of "those" reviews tha...

    I am one hundred percent certain that, hadOur Year of Maybe by Rachel Lynn Solomon ended differently, I would have given it a rating of two. I think it safe for me to say that it is the ending that really makes this novel, however that does not mean that I liked it. I actually found ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Our Year of Maybe hooked me from line one. Solomon has this way of writing which is equal parts carefree simplicity and also hard hitting kicks to the feels. On a pu...

    Rachel Lynn Solomon is slowly becoming one of my all-time favorite authors, I?m waiting on her third book that sounds even more painful and full of angst than this one and You?ll Miss Me When I?m Gone to make it official. But so far, she is amazing. This book is about co-dependen...

    ***Actual rating: 4/5 Lovin?-So-Hard Stars*** And then I let go of him first, this boy who never belonged to me. I let go first. Peter and Sophie have been best friends since childhood; growing up together, Peter?s feeling for Sophie is always nothing more than F....

    I jumped at the opportunity to read this book based on all the amazing things I had heard about Solomon's debut, You'll Miss Me When I'm Gone, and let me tell you, it was a great decision. This book was a painfully beautiful exploration of a friendship, and how quickly something so see...

    Bloody brilliant, as is literally EVERYTHING Rachel Lynn Solomon writes. The voice, the real characterization, the messy truth about teenage love and friendship and life, it's all so perfectly amazing, this author is quickly rising to the top of my favorite YA contemp authors. I cannot...

    "I gave Peter a piece of me- but maybe I also have him the freedom to figure out who he was without me. And I should have realized much sooner that I?d given myself the exact same thing." When you love and care about someone so much, you would do anything for them. No matter the c...

    04/16/2018: That description is perfect. Sophie and Peter and Chase and Tabitha and Luna and Josh and the entire cast will steal your heart. This book, like Rachel's debut, deals with intense love, debts, and high school dramallama. It will be perfect for fans of her debut (DUH), but a...

    I absolutely ADORED this book. I've been a huge Rachel Lynn Solomon fan since her debut, YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M GONE, so I was eagerly awaiting her sophomore novel. And OUR YEAR OF MAYBE did not disappoint. Told in dual POV, it's the story of Sophie and Peter, lifelong best friends wh...

    Peter and Sophie's characters were so well developed. I really appreciated being 'with them' as they grew and went through phases of their friendship. Teenage life can be messy and this book embraced that without being too dramatic. I found their feelings realistic and thought out whic...

    In all honesty I found this book completely shocking and not in a good way. It involved a girl who was in love with this guy who didn?t love her back and this guy just plays her as if she meant nothing to him. Now, I love and respect Rachel Lynn Solomon as an author, but I do not ap...

    4.5 stars Luscious, poignant, and another stunner from Rachel Lynn Solomon, author of You?ll Miss Me When I?m Gone. It?s safe to say that Our Year of Maybe was just as moving and well-written and finely crafted as Solomon?s debut, and I could not be more excited. Sophie ...
