Alexa S. - I’m really looking forward to reading Not in the Script! It sounds like it’s going to be such a treat, especially since Emma sounds like an amazing main character. I love that she comes across as a genuinely GOOD character, one who’s mature and smart and talented. Can’t wait to read it!

Nicole @ The Quiet Concert - I really like the sound of this from your review. I haven’t read any books in the If Only series (although I know they are not a series in the traditional sense) and I think I’ll start with this one. I want to read more books with college-aged MCs and I like the acting plotline (among other things) Great review 🙂

Estelle - Zondervan is also a Christian publisher. And I never felt alienated or uncomfortable when I read From Moonlight on Low Tide. I think there’s a certain balance that authors can achieve that is realistic.

Leah - Thomas Nelson is a Christian publisher, so I’m not surprised religion plays such an important role. 🙂

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - It’s interesting to me how religion seems to play such an important role in this book, or at least gets a lot of emphasis. While discussing religion or characters having firm religious beliefs never bothers me, it’s harder to digest when it’s in a preachy or too pushy way… and it kind of sounds like it may be the case in this book.

Still, the premise is pretty cute though so I may give it a read when I have time!
