    4.5 stars This book took me completely by surprise. It was so lighthearted and funny - at first - I laughed a lot and so I didn?t expect the story to gain such an emotional depth at all and to be crying at some point as well. I loved how the story unraveled slowly and I was caught...

    I?ve always enjoyed reading novels by Emma Mills, and I can?t say that experience was any different with Famous in a Small Town. This newest novel is about Sophie and her friends over the course of one summer in their small town of Acadia, including the arrival of a new boy next do...

    This is such a hard book for me to review because it was one of my most anticipated and it ending up being somewhat disappointing. It was clearly an Emma Mills book- the writing hooks you from page one, the characters have their sharp wit and the friendship was between a group of peopl...

    So.... I had been putting off reading this because I thought it was going to be about a girl who lives in a cute little town and falls in love with a celebrity who comes to film a movie or hide out from paparazzi or something. I have read a ton of YA with that premise and I just wasn't...

    Of course Emma Mills made me cry again. What else is new??!? Though, seriously Famous in a Small Town is another gut in the punch (in a good way.) I cried so much but I also laughed at all the joyous moments. This book made me feel kilig. It's a Filipino word which I don't want to g...

    I?m 1000% here for anything Emma Mills writes. I have enjoyed everything she?s put out and this was no exception. I loved Sophie and her friends. I loved Sophie?s conviction and dedication. I loved the group?s loyalty and acceptance. There were fights and inside jokes and f...

    Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner! Beware spoilers ahead! Trigger warning: Mention of car accident, mention of prison, mention of fatal accident, and taking credit for someone else's work. Sophie and her friends are preparing to enjoy their summer break. Much to the group'...

    This book was nothing like I expected-and that?s both a good and a bad thing! The friendships were off the charts in terms of addicting, in my opinion, the story was strong-even if I could give a f*** about the pop star from their home town (only thing I didn?t like about this book...

    Thank you, Macmillan, for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. You won't stop meaning something to us just because you think you're temporary. ?Sophie After reading a bunch of fantasy novels, it's nice to finally return to reality. Also, it's been a w...

    if i could use only one word to describe emma mills, it would be consistent. she is consistent with her storytelling, her writing, her interesting female main characters, her swoon-worthy crushes, and her cover art (i highkey love when authors use the same style of covers so that a...

    I opened this gorgeous book expecting to smile and laugh at every chapter. Emma Mills always makes me think that, what with her original and feel-good-sounding premises. And her stories do start in a lovely, fun manner. But eventually and slowly, heavy themes creep into the storyline a...

    So. many. feels. Has there been a single Mills book that hasn't made me cry my eyes out? Survey says : haha you funny. I went into this blind and I want you to, too. All you need to know is that it's Millsy. It's YA. It's feelsy. It's friendshippy. And it's freaking lovely. Soph...

    GUYSSSS REMEMBER WHEN I TOLD YOU EMMA MILLS IS BECOMING ONE OF MY FAVE AUTHORS? I. WAS. RIGHT. Ignore the "not 5 star" rating - this is some high quality content. What I love most about her books is the friendship that is almost always put before romance. It's not superficial or ju...

    Emma Mills books are: - funny - gorgeously covered (this is probably the first most important thing except ?don?t judge a book by its cover? or whatever) - under the dust jacket, ALSO gorgeous (can?t emphasize the aesthetics enough) - charming - friendship-filled - banter...

    Emma Mills books are the peak of the YA contemporary genre and I'm forever lamenting that more people are not reading them! Famous in a Small Town is a book about a small town girl, and taking place across the summer. This book also focuses on the mystery of famous country singer Me...

    I love how Emma takes an aspect of high school/teenage life and weaves it into all her stories, there's something for everyone in her novels. In Foolish Hearts it was the drama kids and in this novel it's the band kids. I don't relate to either-which may be why the fanfic centered This...

    Reading an Emma Mills book is like curling up in a cozy overstuffed chair with your favorite hot drink and fluffy slippers on. You can just relax with ordinary characters doing ordinary things and watch things slowly unfold. Very character driven and heartfelt in the way she brings tha...

    ??You?re my best friend, and nothing here is gonna last.?? Sadly, morosely, TRAGICALLY, this was my least favorite Emma Mills. It wasn?t bad exactly. But it wasn?t good. And the reason is that it doesn?t follow the Emma Mills ~Whole New World~ Plot Line Brand. Fo...
