    I did both received an ARC and buy the actual book for Rookie On Love by Tavi Gevinson. This book contains a ton of short stories and poems all about Love, hence the name Rookie on Love. These are just two of the short stories and the summaries I post on them on my Blog. If you would ...

    To touch on one subject that is written a ton about and to have me come away with new ways of thinking and new perspectives is something to be excited about. Even though this book was about love, a topic I try and avoid it in fiction, I found myself thoroughly enjoying this anthology. ...

    Really, really enjoyed this. As expected, I got a lot more out of some essays than others. But this is a perfect collection of stories and essays for teenagers and twenty-somethings. I'll be re-reading it again for sure! Some of the essays were incredibly beautifully written, inspiring...

    DISCLAIMER: I did not read every single story in this anthology. My rating is based on the stories I chose to read. I truthfully only picked up this book because of a few specifics authors, and I decided to read the stories that I was excited about. I browsed through the rest of the bo...

    Rookie on Love embraces the appearance of speaking to readers who may have an idea about love but need to finish their pre-calculus homework before 10pm. That is actually okay because our knowledges of love are certainly not correlated to the stage of life that we find ourselves lost a...

    While this collection is diverse and interesting enough to an adult reader ... this is pretty inaccessible to the intended teenage audience. Teenage readers are not going to slog through intellectualized self evicerations about some adult musing about their 20something love screw up. T...

    I'm guessing this is marketed towards younger women/girls, typically in their teens. But I definitely had to pick this one up because of some of the writers featured in it, and of course general Rookie love too. This is surely a lovely compilation of everything love. It features a ...

    I've got to say that I am a bit disappointed with this collection, I just didn't care for much of the essays or stories. Don't get me wrong, I really liked like ten of them but the rest didn't do much for me, I even skimmed through some of the long ones. This just wasn't what I expecte...

    i?m gonna have to reread some of these, because each piece sort of feels like its own book, so it?s tough to remember everything exactly... this is very empowering for young women and after some of the pieces, I felt floored and amazed ? but some just seemed so incredibly dense i...

    I love the Rookie books and make a point of collecting every single one. Each Rookie Yearbook promised different stories, poems, and comics about various parts of growing up, and the formatting made for an aesthetically-pleasing read. Although I was somewhat excited to see that Rookie ...

    The fact that I personally didn't completely love reading this book, in NO WAY discounts how incredibly elegant and beautiful every single piece of writing in this book was. The stories were very intense, and not necessarily written to engage the reader, but instead of convey an idea, ...

    I thought I was going to like this book more, but I didn't really enjoy it. It was good at first, and I was enjoying the poems and the stories, but then it got so confusing. SO confusing. I would find my mind wandering as I was reading, and I couldn't focus on the message the authors w...

    3.5 stars, probably. Rookie is known for being age appropriate without pulling its punches and this anthology doesn't fall short. It's wonderfully diverse in form and in contributors. I had a really mixed experience with it, loving some pieces and disliking others, enjoying some for h...

    I really, really enjoyed this book. There were a few pieces that I didn't love much, so I couldn't give this 5 stars, but the pieces that I did love I REALLY loved. I've never read a collection of stories like this, and it was so interesting to have different styles and formats all mix...

    This was one of the best books I?ve read in 2018 (marking 42/60 books). I have so many reasons to praise and recommend this read, from the small and logical to the feels and sense of ?being understood?. This format is different than past large set yearbooks from rookie. Thi...
