Sharon @ Fictionally Inclined - Hey, I *just* read this book the other day! In fact, it’s sitting beside me right now, waiting for me to write down my quotes for the review. It was a good one! And I don’t even like the Beatles.

I loved how Eulberg was able to introduce Ryan and each time it felt like a bread crumb leading to a more significant occasion.

Well put! That is EXACTLY how it was. I may have to quote you in my review. 😉

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - This one sounds like so much fun! I really need to get my hands on a copy of this. 🙂 I’ve kind of joined this club… haha. I bet I’d connect with it well! Great review!

Kristen - This is going on my “contemporary book binge” list! We need more books with solid female friendships. 🙂 Thanks for reviewing.

The Bumble Girl - I loved Elizabeth Eulberg’s Take a Bow, and have been meaning to pick this one up ever since! It sounds like there is an amazing cast of characters and a wonderful plot to follow here. I am really going to have to track this one down soon.
Thanks for sharing your review 🙂

elena - All your gushing made me REALLY want to read this book! As a Beatles and contemp fan, this sounds adorable. I love that there’s such a wide variety of characters, good and bad, because that’s realistic and yay for unexpected friendship forming. Fantastic review, E!

VeganYANerds - So glad you loved this book, Estelle! I thought it felt very realistic as well, and you’re so right about Diane, every girl had gone through that point in her life when she realises she’s ditched everyone for her bf (guilty!). Love your review!

April Books & Wine - I love when you give books I already own but haven’t read good reviews because it’s kind of motivating for me and makes me want to go out and read this.

Also, word. I totally know the feeling of building someone up in your mind to be someone great but then they totally SUCK. Ugh. Ugh. I get real life shudders over that.

Anyways, I’m going to have to read this one soon!

Ginger @ GReads! - Oh I am so happy to see that you enjoyed this book. I read it before I started blogging, so I never gave it a proper review. But I’ve always recommended it. The message is just so, so good. My only flaw with this book: that damn blurb on the cover! Why on earth are they comparing it to Twilight?! What the crap. It is so far from that. So strange that they would do that. It’s basically saying, “oh hey! here’s a YA book! Read it!” Um yeah.

Fab review Estelle 🙂

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I’m definitely borrowing this the next time I go the library! It sounds so good – and I love the idea of the club. Great review E!
