    Yay for diversity in YA. Analee is a Cuban American living with her widower father who is marrying a blonde, blue-green eyed, white American yoga instructor and getting an annoying, if brutally honest, little sister out of the equation. Several very much appreciated concepts in t...

    I loved it all - the complications of blended families, the loss of a loved one, the acceptance of yourself as you are. Another great YA contemporary I highly recommend! ...

    This was fine, but I wanted way more Harris, and the ending felt SO weird. Really good (step)family stuff here though (from someone with no step-family) ...

    I really liked the premise of this, especially with the aspect of online personalities. I liked Analee. She?s loving and loyal and a lot stronger than she thinks she is. I did struggle with her in the beginning, but she had a lot of growth through the story and I quickly found my...

    I dont know but I do really like it Spent 2 days in a row (friday and sat ) reading a super angsty books really exhaust me so I need some town down and lil bit fluffy YA. This one somehow reminds me of TATBILB ???? In a way .... But the ending *sigh* well I supposed that is what...

    4.5/5 stars. Wow I really loved this! The main character Analee was so relatable and sassy. I just loved reading from her perspective and it made me feel like I was back in high school again. I will say that she occasionally did that annoying thing where she assumed what someone meant ...

    I actually read this book in one sitting. I mean, I did read the first 20 pages a few days ago, but then last night I just decided that I was going to finish the book right then and there. So I did. And it was probably one of the best decisions ever! I really love Analee, In Real Li...

    Catfairy?s ?Real? Bookish Babbles Analee, in Real Life sneaked up on me unexpectedly and I am so happy it did! The year 2018 was the year where so many amazing diverse books were being published and Analee, in Real Life came at a perfect time since it was published during Lati...

    As a fan of The Victoria in My Head, I was looking forward to Milanes follow up. Analee, in Real Life explored some of my favorite things - friendship, family, and grief. It even featured some romance, but this was solidly a book about Analee working through her feelings and findin...

    My Rating: 5 stars ????? Just as with Milanes's debut, Analee, In Real Life is now another one of my favorite YA Contemporary books of all time! (;?????`)?? I LOVED THIS BOOK!! (*Also if your a fan of fake-dating, pick this book up!!) Okay so after Milanes's...

    Analee, In Real Life is one of my favorite books this year. The novel is an in-depth look into Analee's life as her father prepares to marry another woman, Harlow, 2 years after her mother's death. This brings back a lot of grief and resentment for Analee. During this time span, Analee...

    I didn?t like the ending even though it?s what the promise was about in the beginning. It made me angry, sad, and confused as to why it ended the way it did. I loved the characters together because they kind of brought out the best in each other and connected like love birds. I lov...

    Copy received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I was disappointed by this book for several reasons, the first and most obvious being that the love interest was completely unlikable. It's obvious that the popular guy is using Analee for his own personal gain; this fac...

    I really enjoyed this! I loved Analee as a character and like that it both had some typical cliche YA tropes--the most popular boy in school and social outcast Analee "fake date" to make others jealous--along with more serious issues, such as Analee's heartbreak and trauma from los...

    I was full expecting to give this book 5 stars. I don't give them away easily, but the last 30 pages are such a WTF cluster of confusion I'm still reeling from the disaster of that ending. I LOVED Analee. Her thoughts were funny, self deprecating, and full on witty. The only other ...

    I really enjoyed this book. It has the fake dating to real feelings trope that I've come to love and it deals with death and grief really nicely. It also has an online RPG relationship that while can be creepy is really fun. Analee's character is self conscious and relatable and I conn...

    I absolutely loved Analee, In Real Life. It was just what I needed when I read it. Analee's narrative voice was charming and engaging. Her family had nuanced, complex, and entertaining dynamics and the Cuban culture that came into play was also really fun to read. In addition, the cast...

    This book made me cry...it snuck up on me and before I knew it I was full out crying. Analee...where do I begin?! Analee keeps to herself; she lost her best friend when her mother died and know she seems to be angry at everything. Angry at her father for not talking about her mother (a...

    4.5 stars I picked this up thinking it was going to be in the same vain as Francesca Zappia's Eliza and Her Monsters, but surprisingly it is not; a good surprise. While it does deal with an mc who struggles with social anxiety and plays MMORPS, it focuses more about self-love, family,...

    I adored this YA read about Analee finding her way from a place of pain and anxiety over her world to a place where she could be herself and not hide away. After the death of her mother, and being ditched by her bestie, Analee is spending her time playing online games. She has an onlin...

    I can honestly say that this is the first book in a long time I've felt completely compelled to review. I'm not sure I've ever read a book where I saw as much of myself in a character as Analee. I'm in my late 20's now, but reading this book brought back all my feelings of insecurity, ...

    Going into this book I thought it'd probably be another cheesy and badly written YA book just because I've read so many recently that actually were, that I didn't even add them as "DNF books". I simply didn't care. The writing surprised me as well as the story, though much later on, di...

    The ending snuck up on me, but I appreciated that the princess saved herself in this one (so to speak) and that her happily-ever-after didn?t come in the form of a guy, but in family and self-actualization. My inner chick lit lover is sad that Analee and Seb didn?t end up together,...

    3.5 stars So, it's not that this was a terrible story or anything, it was entertaining, but it really didn't live up to my expectations. I thought this would be in the vein of Eliza and Her Monsters or even Recovery of an MMO Junkie, but the focus definitely weighed more on the relati...

    So that was an unexpected ending, I feel cheated. It was however true to life and in retrospect somewhat foreshadowed. (view spoiler)[ (Seb encouraged Analee to take chances but there weren?t many romantic scenes where they shared their interests and got to know each other except the...
