    ***ARC received for an honest review*** ?Music has always been my drug of choice.? We all know Sarina Bowen is my drug of choice. And that I?m a total bitch about YA books. Common sense would dictate that maybe I hesitate when I hear SB has written her first YA. What if I h...

    I was in a book slump, so I thought I'd go with a Sarina Bowen because there's a high chance I'd like it, even if the main characters are younger than her usual. And that panned out very well, indeed. I'll admit I was worried for a bit, though. I mean, it's a slow start with Rachel ...

    2.5 STARS I adore Bowen, and it makes me sad to report this is my least favorite work she's written. Rachel was immature, and while I didn't dislike her per se, she never truly won me over. Frederick was so unlikeable, and I could never warm to him despite his reasonings. I adored J...

    ?Have you found what you were looking for here?? Have I? I still don?t know??I?m working on it,? I say. The Accidentals is a wonderfully emotional YA from Sarina Bowen, one of our much-loved Authors. A coming of age story where a seventeen year old girl is facin...

    Contentment: (n.) A feeling of quiet happiness and satisfaction. The key word is quiet. It?s not the happiness that makes you scream until your lungs combust or tremble with the pent-up energy that has to be diffused by running and sharing this joy with the world. It?s the type ...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books. This was such a good story! I was really excited to see how Sarina Bowen would do with a Young Adult novel. Honestly, she blew me away with this story. Once I started reading this one, I didn't want to stop. I needed to...

    ?Our relationship is like an experiment gone awry. Maybe my father and I will never be able to hear each other properly, because so much of our beginning was spliced off and thrown away.? Regardless of the genre she chooses to tackle, Sarina Bowen?s superb storytelling prowe...

    4 stars!!! There are a few authors who I will read any book they write. Sarina Bowen is one of those authors for me. The Accidentals was different than many of the other books of hers I have read, but I loved it all the same. Rachel grew up with a single mother who was a ...

    ***IT'S ALIVE!!!*** I?d be happy if this book went on forever? It?s been a bloody long time since I?ve freaked out to look at the bottom of my Kindle and see 4 minutes ? 99% left in my book. I really didn?t want this story to end. I was even kind of hoping that Sari...

    Going into this book, I thought Sarina Bowen, hell yes, of course I am reading this even though I've struggled with Young Adult before, its Sarina Bowen for goodness sakes. So afterwards, I can honestly say this book is exactly what I needed, HELL YES, probably one of the most easiest ...

    Jul 11, 2018
    3.75 stars! I ended up really enjoying this book! I get apprehensive when authors known for romance decide to tackle the YA genre, because 9 times out of 10 they write a romance novel and just make the characters in their teens. I was very much impressed that Sarina Bowen gave us ...

    I'm not sure where to start with this book. There were so many facets to it, and so much to admire. First of all, I enjoy Sarina Bowens' other books. She has a way of roping in a reader on page one and keeping you tied up until the last page. Both nuanced and immersive, her contemporar...

    I am on a roll. I'm not bothering with a review because I spent the entire day live-texting/ranting about this to a buddy (sorry Rebecca, ps please read her review, it says everything I would've said, but in a much nicer way) and that's already more time than I care to dwell on this...

    NOW LIVE! Amazon US * Amazon UK It's not usually a good thing when I say that a story pulls readers in two different directions. Typically that would be followed by me saying the story didn't have a clear direction and that it was confusing. But I'm going to say it about The Ac...

    4 bittersweet stars for the story and 5 stars for the cover. An accidental is a note in the piece that departs from the stated key signature. But there?s nothing accidental about an accidental, in spite of its name. The use of accidentals adds colors and depth to th...

    This book was a toough one. I got into it blind, since I love the author, but with a general idea of what the YA genre implied. I was expecting a cute coming of age story, but this book was way heavier than that. I am not saying it in a negative way. I liked how this book played my hea...

    I am proudly sporting dark smudges and Samsonite bags under my eyes. They are the battle scars of a reader who was compelled to pull an all-nighter to read The Accidentals in one sitting. I have long been a fan of Sarina Bowen?s writing, but I think this is her best work yet. It is h...

    Usually when I review an ARC, I take my time doing it. I review all my highlights, go over the multiple pages of notes, then I sit down the next day to write my review. Not with this book. This review is going to be a cathartic act for me. Because I have so much emotion inside m...
