Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Oh YAY!! I’m so glad you loved this book because I did too! I found it so much fun. I read it and reviewed it for another blog when it came out but never did for my own blog. I need to re-read and put it up on mine with the next book! Thanks for the reminder Magan! And man, that ending. Loved it.

Ash @ Paranormal Indulgence - Judging by the titles in the series, I’d assumed that they were companion books in a series. I kind of love that it’s actually a good ol’ fashion series about one main character. What really got me was the unapologetic tone to Rose’s character that you mentioned. I love main characters like that! They do what they have to, say what’s true to who they are, and are completely unrepentant. That’s a sign of sassiness (a word?) I just can’t ignore 😀

Speaking of the Ruby Oliver series, I recently picked up the first book and now I’m itching to start that one as well!

Racquel - I originally was not interested in this book when I first heard about it because I like YA about older characters, 17-18 year olds, seniors, graduating, characters around my age and such BUT that’s generally a bad habit of mine plus this book and the sequel seem like my kind of reads so I will get over my “no freshmen” thing and pick this up because it looks realistic and I already love from the reviews I’ve been reading.

Alexa Y. - I love how this book, particularly its main character, sounds real, funny and hopeful. I might have overlooked this one before, but I definitely need to check it out for myself because you made it sound SO GOOD.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I really liked this one! Actually, I loved it. I was so surprised how serious it was and so many points seemed so realistic. Plus.. hellooooo. Jamie!
Sounds like I need to read Ruby Oliver!!!

Rachel - I’ve been considering reading this one literally since it was released. It sounded good, but at the same time I didn’t know if I wanted to read about a girl that was constantly angry. That being said, after reading your review her behavior makes A LOT more sense and I think I’m going to read this one!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve been curious about this book (and it’s sequel) but I haven’t gotten around to reading them yet. I do love Ruby Oliver, though, so I should move this series up my TBR list.

Hazel - Awesome review, Magan! One mention of Ruby Oliver and you’ve already convinced me to read it. 😉 Aside from that, I think the plot’s interesting. Rose too. Putting this on my TBR! 🙂

Bookworm1858 - I love this series so much! I didn’t have very high expectations going in expecting another rote contemporary but was thrilled to get so much more especially the excellent character of Rose.

Amy @ bookgoonie - Ive been eyeing this series. Rose sounds very connectable and the story messy in a “real” sort of way.
