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 🙂

Alexa S. - Honestly, I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted to read this one. BUT your review of it has managed to convince me that perhaps I ought to give it a shot! I do love that it focuses heavily on friendship, and the real complexity of it. And I also love that it’s set in Greece!

Leah - YES!!! The moment I got this one I sat down and didn’t move until it was finished, I was THAT hooked. I felt the ending was a teensy bit too sitcom-y, but the rest of the book was so wonderful I didn’t mind at all.
