    I liked it. I didn?t like it. I liked it. I didn?t did.. didn?t didn?t mostly didn?t. Really didn?t!!!! Overall this was a drain on my brain. From the start I thought it was pretty stupid to be honest ... Milf mom? and her daughter bitching? What?...

    You know, for a while there I actually thought I might end up liking this story somewhat but now I?m just like, NO. Majorly underwhelmed. 2 stars and I?m being generous. So Penny wants to be a writer, yeah? And she has this professor who critiques her work and gives her advice, ...

    I totally agree, soon-to-be Princess Meghan! (Yes, I know she won't actually be called that, but I don't care.) I loved loved loved this book, and it reminded me of how good an amazing YA book (or any book for that matter) makes me feel. Penny can't wait to go to college and es...

    I loved this book so much and I don?t think I can properly review it... I will apologize for what will likely be a hot mess. Penny and Sam are both great characters who were easy to root for. They're both struggling and they find a lifeline of sorts in each other. I loved how we j...

    4 stars !!! I can see why people hated this, or found aspects of it frustrating or annoying or subtlely problematic or whatever (which is why I couldn't five star this because I didn't absolutely and faultlessly love it), but for once in my life im on the infrared side of the cont...

    DNF at page 154. I was excited about this but 150+ pages is too far in to feel like I don't yet know one of the main characters at all, and still be waiting to get interested in the story. For a book pitched for its cute text element, the texts took quite a while to be incorporated ...

    ARC requested through Netgalley, and kindly provided by Simon & Schuster Canada in exchange for an honest review. ?Jude nudged her. ?Can you do me a favor? Can you tell me this story the opposite of the way you?d tell it normally? Start at the beginning and don?t leave ...

    There is a difference between being flawed and being unlikable. My brother is flawed. He always forgets to turn off the lights, close the window in the winter, and only cleans after himself at the last minute, right before he heads back to his apartment. But my brother is still...

    This was one of my most anticipated contemporary releases of the year, and while it definitely was not without its flaws, I thought it was all in all a tremendously cute, sweet story. I get so accustomed to reading heavy contemporaries?and don?t get me wrong, this one tackles some ...

    ? 2 / 5 ? There wasn?t much I liked about this book, so giving it 2 stars is probably higher than I should be? But, I don?t think this was 1 star material either. It wasn?t that bad?it just wasn?t good. One of my first updates for this novel was that I was enjoy...

    DNF 59% I could have spent the entire month reading only this book to have it on my 2018 reading challenge since I?ve surpassed the halfway point, but I just don?t care anymore. I am worried that if I push myself I?ll end up in a reading slump. I?m so bored and I can?t con...

    ***Actual rating: 4/5 Stars*** Emergency Contact indeed gives me a unique perspective of a romance story, featuring the most ordinary characters I?ve ever seen in fictional novels. The female main character, Penny is a Korean-American girl whose mother is a MILF, has a zit on he...

    Angst, Love, Texts, and Tattoos When I read through the excerpt for Emergency Contact back in February, I had a slight inkling indicating it would be well worth the wait. I was hooked, in particular, when I highlighted the opening line that really gets those of us living in the...

    1.5 stars I don't actually know how to put gifs in reviews, but if I did know how this would be the place in which I would just place something that was disappointment. one star for the generally healthy nature of sam and penny's relationship and a half star for jude. she's the rea...

    this author is so cool that this book is extremely cool by default, and i think also i am incrementally cooler for having read it. like it's so cool that i a) felt not cool enough, at several points, to be reading it and b) am significantly more cool for doing so. SO. COOL. this ...

    ?I want to be with someone I can talk to. I wat to be with someone who automatically has a fast folder on me. Someone who feels lucky when I tell them the most unflattering, scary stuff.? I don?t know what it is with 2018, but damn, we?ve been getting incredible contemporary...

    2 stars. Strap in, folks, because I am not happy with this book. I'd much rather chuck it across the room. It failed on so many levels. I'd figured this would be a nice, decent story of two lost people connecting while trying to navigate through life. Sadly, none of that happened. W...

    I'm leaving a rating off and calling this a DNF because it just wasn't for me, BUT I still want to share that it's well written, the diversity is awesome, and the characters are in college! I think a lot of people will really resonate with the main character's outlook, but it was j...

    2 stars ?? What a disappointment this was. I love books in which the characters text and this was sold to me as one of these books but they don't even start texting halfway through the novel and the texting is definitely not a huge part of the story. The main characters, espe...

    ?Loving someone was traumatizing. You never knew what would happen to them out there in the world. Everything precious was also vulnerable.? (I won't be posting a review for this book on my blog since I don't really have that much to say for this.) I brought this book on a small ...

    If ever there was a book that truly epitomises the term ?don?t judge a book by its cover? it is this one. I feel so cheated. And exhausted with anger. Finishing this book was a struggle. I won?t lie. I had somewhat of a sneaking suspicion that it was going to piss me off...

    I?m super disappointed I didn?t like this book. I thought it would be a five star read, as I ordered it as soon as I heard about it. The synopsis seemed so interesting, but the book itself was the biggest let down this far in 2018. I can?t believe I actually finished reading t...
