    1. It s too bad this book wasn t published during summer, because it can make a cute summer read.But then again, us living in Canada sure need books to make us feel warm during winter as well So no worries You ll hopefully enjoy this whatever season you re in.About the story, it s light, though it does deal with meaningful matters themes cheating, lying, education and relationshipsEVER, and this annoyed me, the author doesn t develop them all in dept You ll notice, the book is pretty sort 260 pages [...]

    2. I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to St Martin s Press and NetGalley I will not fail.Not again This was a YA contemporary story about a girl who had sent nude pictures to an ex boyfriend and had them published publicly Viviana was an okay character, and I could understand why she was so against having another relationship after her last one ended so badly, but the way she kept telling her best friend that it was alright to go after a boy who wasn t interested in her he was [...]

    3. So this is the book I expected an over stressed, over worked, high school perfectionist with trust issues learns to open up to Mr Right and live in the moment.That s not the book I got This book is not a typical YA romance In fact, it s not really a romance at all.This is a book about struggling to keep things together when your life is falling spectacularly apart.Viviana has real issues It goes deeper than the humiliation she feels from her first love spreading around her nude selfies in retali [...]

    4. I would like to thank St Martin s Press E Katherine Kottaras for my copy of the ARC.I loved the cover for this book and with the promise of coming of age with a slight romance in the mix, I thought it would be for me While it was an ok read plus I read it in a couple of hours it didn t blow me away, so due to this, I would have to give two and a half stars.Viv is obsessed with being perfect, with her parents breathing down her neck to always hit perfect grades and make good life choices, suddenl [...]

    5. Ever since I read How To Be Brave last autumn, I have been waiting for Mrs Kottaras next novel, and she does not disappoint Her writing is spot on once again, if not even better than what she showcased in her debut.This time around Mrs Kottaras brings us a story about trying to overcome traumatic experiences and learning to love yourself, that is filled with relatable characters I was hooked from chapter one, and I would ve finished it in one sitting if it wasn t for reality getting in the way I [...]

    6. 3.5 starsI really liked the premise of this and was quite eager to get to it I liked Vivi well enough She s smart and is dealing with a lot of personal things I enjoyed being in her head and reading her figure things out Sammie and Evan were interesting characters, and I absolutely loved Vivi s little sister, Mila The idea of a slice of time usually irritates me, but it really works with this story And man, there are a lot of things that happen Some of it is good, some of it is bad, some of it i [...]

    8. Read of my reviews on YA Romantics or follow me on BloglovinHmmm this one had its moments, but didn t do it for me 100% There were a whole lot of plot elements and for me they didn t all work together.It s the summer before Viviana s senior year, and she s got a plan spend the summer at an engineering academy, SAT prepping, etc But her crippling anxiety attacks start getting in the way Her shifting relationships with her absent, high achieving father and her best friend, who likes the same guy [...]

    9. I was really excited for the format, but in the end it just turned out to be an excuse for clunky backstory expositional passages e.g Let me tell you All About My Best friend which seemed like a previously in my life catch up before the main event I m not sure how well the format of college tips and advice even worked in the latter half of the story when it was about Vivi s family issues rather than her stressing out over college Also, best friends fighting over a boy NOOOOO Had I known this w [...]

    15. This book was a pretty decent book It was definitely a general book with romance and family problems, but I liked how the author didn t have a traditional ending, and put in a cool twist I also liked how unique the characters were, but I do feel like at the end of the book, the author left a lot of things hanging Overall, it was a pretty good but short read.

    16. This was quite a mixed read for me, despite it being my favourite genre, YA The author is new to me and whilst she does write well, I failed to connect fully with the character of Viviana Viviana is a complex young person emerging into womanhood She has severe anxiety, in part, due to the stresses of parental separation and betrayal by her first boyfriend I did feel for Vivi in regards to her anxiety but I found observing her somewhat tense and a little stressful Vivi has a mother who I did not [...]

    20. I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.Ugh, I wanted to like this one I really did There were parts that I liked I could relate to Viviana s need for perfection and all the tension she felt at not getting everything done that she needed to And I liked the panic attack part of it But that was about it First, the story should have just focused on Viviana s need for perfection and her desire to please her father But alas, there was way too much focus on romance Viviana [...]
