Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - It’s set in New York City and it taps into music for the main story – yup, this book definitely sounds like something I’d want to read!

VeganYANerds - I really like the sound of this, though I do agree that some lists of the songs on the tapes would have been a great edition! Also, I too was one of those kids who recorded music off the tv onto my cassette recorder! <3

Estelle - E, maybe they were in the final copy? I would be interested to check it out. I kept thinking of you as I read this. You should definitely pick up both. As for God Shaped Hole, that has a huge musical influence too just not as much as How to Kill. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear what you think. Thanks for the comment as always!

elena - I’m kind of surprised that the lists for the mixtapes weren’t in the book, it seems to be such an easy and obvious thing! You’ve got me so curious about this book, Estelle. I’m definitely going to try to read How To Kill A Rockstar, that sounds really promising! Music in books is always super interesting to me, ha.

Jenny - So glad I wasn’t the only one taping music videos w my boom box by the speaker of my tv! Another great review as always, Estelle!

Estelle - Eva, sorry to disappoint! I know… the cover/title are sort of tricky things aren’t they? As a fan of Tiffanie’s work, I definitely think you should give it a try tho! 🙂

Estelle - April, it does the same to me. I think I was warned in advance though when I glanced through a few other reviews. Perhaps it helps to be prepared? I think you should give it a try. It has an edgier feel than other YAs.

April Books & Wine - I won’t lie, usually the unknown drives me NUTS. So I am not sure how I would feel about Super Girl Mix Tapes, because, on the other hand I LOVE NYC and complex relationships and the 1990s. Hmmmm.

Quite a book conundrum here.

Eva, The Book Stoner - Aw man, I was expecting “light and fun.” But since it reminded you of How to Kill a Rock Star, I’m still in! 🙂 Thanks for the very helpful review.
