    I was lucky to read an advance copy of Jen Malone's latest novel. Amelia is tough and fearless, determined to face her life-threatening liver disease with the same spunk she brings to everything else but discovers it may not be as easy as she thinks. With the perfect mix of depth, hear...

    Oh boy. That was a tearjerker. But sooooo good. And yea, synopsis is wrong. There's no romance. Nobody comes in and saves the dying girl with his love. But Will is awesome either way. ...

    I can't even imagine what it would feel like to grow up with a disease that you know will make you eventually need a liver transplant. That's Amelia's life. But she's healthy and has been her whole life, basically, so it's something that's vaguely a thing but usually not on her mind. U...

    It made me cry! I did not expect it, but there I was, crying. Sometimes a good cry is good, it has been a while since my last. Amelia was born with a liver disease, but it has never really affected here. Until her last year of HS when it gets worse. She needs a liver transplant. I ...

    3.5 stars. I may change this rating to 4 stars, but right now I?m a little in my feelings and so it stands. The book was good, the emotions were there, but I?ve come to expect a certain kind of storyline when picking up her books, and this one didn?t follow that path. It?s not ...

    The Arrival of Someday is a very emotional, very realistic novel that has all of the feels - yet has so much charm and wit that you won't help but find yourself falling in love with all of its characters, no matter the gloom that follows the story. Amelia was born with a liver dise...

    [3.5/5 Stars] The Arrival of Someday follows the life of Amelia (Lia/Roldemort), a high school senior, and roller derby enthusiast... oh, and she also has a rare liver disease that requires she get a transplant at some point in the near future. If you know me, you know how much ...

    Touching and heartfelt, but there's an abrupt twist that makes it hard for me to rate higher. I read the author's note and understand the reasoning, but I don't think the execution worked. I appreciated the emphasis on activism, but I also think activism should be a hobby of going from...

    4.5 stars I love books that make me cry. I also love books that can make me smile. And The Arrival of Someday had me doing both. I often call books uplifting. The Arrival of Someday goes past uplifting (though, that fits too) and is totally inspiring. It is surprising (that ending lit...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight . My heart! Oh, this book gave me thefeels. But not all the feels were of a depressing sort, not even close! For a book about a very ill young woman, it manages to be incr...

    i just don't know how to describe this book. "meh" would be the right word. i enjoyed it but i felt like the main character wasn't someone i would be a friend of,,, and the ending was so out of note??? did love the message that it leaves: to sign up and be an organ donor!! yet nothi...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars I always think I know what I am getting myself into, when I opt to read a "sick kids" book, but still, I under estimate the emotional toll it will have on me. My advice for reading this book: grab a box of tissues and be ready to shed some tears, because it was...

    Thank you to Edelweiss and BIG FAT thanks to HarperCollins for always entrusting me to review their e-arcs. Let me preface this by telling you all how much of a sucker for punishment I am. I have read, not one, but two books involving fatal diseases and illnesses, but this one...th...

    AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: My criteria for choosing audiobooks are not too complicated. The book must not be more than about 8 hours long, and it mustn?t be too ?heavy?. I will never forgive myself for the torturous hours spent listening to half of ?Lincoln in the Bardo?. I won?t...

    ?I wish it didn?t have to be like this: all or nothing. I wish I didn?t have to chase highs to try and banish the lows. I wish normal could be good enough.? I wasn?t expecting to become so immediately hooked to Lia?s story, but I just couldn?t put The Arrival of Someda...

    Thank you so much to Edelweiss for this eARC that completely took my breath away. I originally requested it because of the badass that Lia (short for Amelia) is. The synopsis for the book tells us she is a roller derby queen, an artist, and a nerd (see her derby name: Rolldemort!) and ...

    If I had to shortly describe describe The Arrival of Someday, it would be: utterly realistic and emotional. Really. The book tells the story of an eighteen-year-old girl - Lia (Amelia), passionate roller derby player, who recently learns she's in desperate need of an organ transplant. ...

    3.5 stars. If I were to say that The Arrival of Someday was one of the best contemporaries I've ever read, I would be lying. The ending literally dropped my rating down by half a star. But at the same time, I guess the conclusion of the story made this novel realistic. My favorite part...

    -2.5 stars. I?m... disappointed. All the reviews for this book hype it up to be so heartbreaking and moving but I?m just not feeling it. The story itself is definitely sad, but the writing, characters, and just the overall vibes that this book gave me were not was I was hoping ...
