Emma @ Miss Print - My excitement for this book grows exponentially as more bloggers I trust talk about how much they loved it. Great review Magan!

June 2, 2015 - 10:37 am

Alexa S. - Kissing in America sounds FABULOUS, M! I wasn’t sure I wanted to read it, but your review has completely changed my mind. I’m definitely going to be trying to snag a copy soon, since it also sounds like a perfect summer read!

May 27, 2015 - 3:45 pm

Kristin @ Simply Bookish Things - I saw this the other day and it looks so good. I am a complete sucker for romances..<3

Ashley - I am so, so, so, so glad I’m not alone in my love of this book. I went into it knowing nothing also and adored it so much!

Magan: Open Road Summer by Emery Lord, A Vlog Review

Howdy, y’all! Man it feels so incredibly wonderful to type these words. It feels so good to be here talking books. And yes, quite literally below, I talk books in my vlog. I’m really wanting to mix things up a bit and as I’m just on an altogether different schedule with a newborn, vlogs seem like the […]

Judith - THIS IS JUST SO LOVELY, MAGAN! Please keep vlog reviews a thing, because they’re really great. Of course, I am in love with this book, and I am totally buying my best friend a copy as well. And yes, Reagan and Dee are the best. I don’t think I’ve ever read about a lovelier friendship in books. Their friendship made me cry! Also, Everett is SOOOOO CUTE! It’s great you read this book to (with) her, and I hope she will also find a best friend as great as you and Estelle, or Dee and Reagan.

April 27, 2014 - 6:00 pm

Hannah @ So Obsessed With - 1. MAMA MAGAN! You’re baaaaack! Love seeing your cute face 🙂
2. I really love the idea of incorporating more vlogs into RBR. I had so much fun watching this one and look forward to more.
3. Holy cow, I looooved this book. Soooo much.
4. Helllllo, Matt Finch.
5. Yay quotes! I included a bunch in my review, too. The writing was amazing.
6. I like getting a peek at your bookshelf styling.
7. Precious baby! Wish I could meet sweet baby Everett <3

April 22, 2014 - 10:31 am

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - She is just SO precious. Love the pictures of her!!!
I’m at work so I’ll have to check out your LOVELY vlog later but SO much love for this book too! I loved everything about it. It was just wonderful and made me fall in love with every aspect. (Oops, did I say love too much?)

April 17, 2014 - 12:08 am

Kelly @ Belle of the Literati - Oh my gosh, your beautiful baby!!! Love love love!! And alright, alright! Everyone has been raving about this book, I’ll go read it, geez 🙂

April 14, 2014 - 1:31 pm

April 13, 2014 - 1:08 am

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - So happy to see your beautiful face! And your baby girls’s face too — she’s so adorable :). I read aloud to Marko when he was little too…and he’s pretty into books so far, so I think it works! I’m definitely interested in this book, especially after hearing that you loved it so much.

It’s a gorgeous book, it’s got great characters (HELLO Matt Finch! Oh, and Reagan and Dee!), and it’s just SO ADDICTIVE. So happy to hear that you enjoyed it as much as I did! <3

July 2, 2013 - 10:16 am

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Aaah, so this is one that I’ve been wondering about but it seemed like I read somewhere that this was a sequel or a companion or something, so I didn’t pursue it. And you sorta/kinda validate that for me. I’ve actually also never read anything by this author but Ginger was kind enough to send me The Thing About The Truth so I’m thinking that I’ll probably read that one when I’m feeling the itch to check her out. Love this review because my little eyes caught the words “North Carolina” in there, which means nothing at all. <3

June 30, 2013 - 8:40 pm

Nailed It: Upcoming July Releases - […] A review of Right of Way by Lauren Barnholdt […]

June 30, 2013 - 5:08 pm

molly @ wrapped up in books - This doesn’t sound like one I’ll pick up, but I appreciate the review because I know a lot of readers I can recommend it to!

June 28, 2013 - 5:16 pm

Molli - Hmmmm, Lauren is one of those authors I’ve been meaning to read for some time and haven’t. I’m going to add one of her earlier books, but it’ll just depend on if I find one for sale or something as to which I actually end up reading first.

Man, I hate it when a book just stinks, especially when you’re hoping to like another book from an author you’ve enjoyed in the past. It sounds like the author could have done more to differentiate this one from Two Way Street.

June 27, 2013 - 11:06 pm

Taylor @ Reading is the Thing - I read and enjoyed Two-Way Street, but I was definitely worried about how similarly Right of Way would end up. I’m sorry to see that it was just too much the same for your tastes. I haven’t read Ex-Mas yet though, so maybe I’ll give that one a shot (probably closer to Christmas!) to satisfy my craving for two exes on a road trip! Great review!

June 27, 2013 - 5:36 pm

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - Sad that you didn’t like this one. :/ I love Pacey and Joey, too, but I don’t always love the sparring couples. It’s a fine line for me, between awesome banter and awkward/hurtful fighting.

I still need to read Two Way Street, though!

June 27, 2013 - 4:43 pm

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - I’m happy to hear I wasn’t the only one who was forever affected by the wonder that was Pacey and Joey! Between them and Logan and Veronica, witty banter and arguments are essentially a prerequisite for a truly great couple that I’ll root for. All joking aside, I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy Right of Way, although I can’t say I’m particularly surprised. I’ve seen a series of tepid reviews for this sequel recently and the overarching opinion seems to be that it simply didn’t need to be written. It sounds like it re-hashes the same issues as the first novel, Two-Way Street (Which I haven’t read but hear is great!) without adding anything new to the narrative. It’s unfortunate given how popular Barnholdt’s other novel was as I think it has left a bad taste in more than a few reader’s mouths. There are few things I enjoy more than a road trip story, but I think this is one that I’ll have to pass on.

June 27, 2013 - 3:41 pm

Alexa Y. - I haven’t read the first one, but even so, both books sound very similar based on their summaries! I am quite a sucker for a road trip book though, so I might eventually have to check one of these two books out for fun.

June 27, 2013 - 2:00 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - Aww, I’m sorry that this didn’t really work out for you Estelle! It sucks that it was SO close to the first book of this companion/series, which I would definitely found annoying. A lot of this also seems unrealistic as well. Like, how could everything get resolved so quickly? Plus, not even everything gets resolved, which is a huge bummer. :/

I’m sorry this didn’t impress you Estelle! Thanks for such an honest and lovely review, though. <3

June 27, 2013 - 11:54 am

Ginger @ GReads! - Sadly, I couldn’t finish this one. I had high hopes since I was a fan of Two-way Street, but this one just didn’t deliver in the same way. I was really turned off by Peyton’s character. The rich spoiled girl routine has been done a lot in YA. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it just annoys me. In this story, it definitely annoyed me.

June 27, 2013 - 11:53 am

Rachel - I have been waiting for this review since you told me you finished it. I had VERY different feelings, but I think I’ve figured out why. First off, I didn’t read the other book, so I felt like I was reading something new. I read the plot summary for that one and they sounds EXACTLY the same, so I would definitely not read that one. That obviously makes a huge difference since I had nothing to compare it to. The other reason why I think our opinions differed is that I looked at this as more of a character exploration and a look into communication (or the lack of), rather than expecting anything to actually happen. I thought it was interesting to see how I’m not the only one that has a difficult time communicating my feelings, but over time Jace and Peyton worked through it and they worked through their issues together. I also loved the ending, but that’s because I love endings that are wide open for me to imagine whatever I want.

June 27, 2013 - 9:36 am

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Yeahhhh I’ve heard some similar things about this book 🙁 How sad! I do like road trip books and I love all that tension! But it seems like this one is just a bit lacking. Sad!!

June 13, 2013 - 12:16 am

tabithasbookblog - You’re right! This is the perfect book for when you want to escape for the day. And the miscommunication was actually something that didn’t bother me either! I think it made the story better, I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on Right of Way!

June 11, 2013 - 9:10 pm

Courtney @ Courtney Reads A Lot - Oh wow! I have yet to read a book where the character shares my first name, which is surprising given my name isn’t that rare. I might just have to give this one a try because I’m sure it’s all sorts of drama and awkwardness with two exes stuck in a car together. I’m glad you liked it, Estelle! 😀 Great review!

June 11, 2013 - 12:23 pm

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Road trip books are the best! Glad you enjoyed this one. I have this one and the companion book but haven’t checked out Sometimes it Happens yet.

June 11, 2013 - 6:16 am

Lori - I’ve had this book on my Kindle for years. I think it was one of the first books I bought when I got my Kindle…and I still haven’t read it. Maybe I should change that? 🙂

June 11, 2013 - 3:07 am

Jasmine @ Flip That Page - I loved this book! It wasn’t one of the best titles I’ve come across, but I could totally relate to Courtney, but I loved how Jordan had a bad boy side that didn’t annoy me as much as other bad boys would. And his sweeter side was romantic, and more appealing. Great review! 🙂

June 10, 2013 - 5:17 pm

Alexa Y. - This is probably the type of contemporary novel that would be a break for me between fantasies and dystopians and the like. It does sound fun though, and I particularly like that it involves a road trip!

June 10, 2013 - 2:56 pm

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - I think this is a perfect kind of read for a nice day outside. It IS summer after all! *throws confetti* (Can you tell that I’m still excited by this fact?!) But, ahem, even if it wasn’t revolutionary and a big secret was revealed early on, it seems like the characters are seriously fantastic, and that makes this book worth it.

Lovely review, Estelle! <3

June 10, 2013 - 1:44 pm

Taylor @ Reading is the Thing - I read this book a few years ago and enjoyed it. I do remember getting frustrated a couple times though. I had no idea she wrote a companion novel! I’ll definitely be reading it! Great review

-Taylor @ Reading is the Thing

June 10, 2013 - 10:57 am

Rachel @ hello, chelly. - I love this book! I related to Courtney too but I really loved Jordan. I loved when his softer side would unexpectedly come out. I actually didn’t see the twist coming but I can see how it might’ve been revealed a bit early. Such a fun book 🙂

June 10, 2013 - 9:55 am

Tara - I can’t imagine going on a road trip with an ex. I have a feeling one of us wouldn’t make it out alive…

June 10, 2013 - 9:24 am

Ginger @ GReads! - I was more of a fan of Jordan’s character, too. I read this book before my days of blogging & remembered loving it so much. I wonder if I’d feel the same if I picked it up now. I tried to read Right of Way & it did not work for me — maybe that’s a sign? haha

Magan - Lily — Oh, I can’t wait for you to read it! If you’re already a fan of Jessi’s, you’re just going to love where she goes with Golden! Enjoy!

Cassie — I’m so glad you’re excited! Major kudos, of course, to Jessi for stretching herself as a writer. I love, love, love that about her!

Lori — I completely agree. 10000%.

Mandee — Yeah, the whole mystery thing is kind of downplayed in the summaries, but it’s a lovely part of the book. Most intriguing for sure! I hope you pack an extra suitcase just for the books you buy while in the US! 🙂

Tara — YES! A book every week would be awesome. And for sure Jessi is an auto-buy for me as well. (That list seems to be growing exponentially lately.) You should give in and buy the print! It’s so awesome to see every day.

Asheley! You haven’t read Jessi’s other books? GIRL! HOP ON IT! Pronto! I’m so glad you loved Golden too. I just don’t know what one could possibly find wrong with this book. I loved it soooo much. And yes, love like springtime. 🙂

April 5, 2013 - 4:01 pm

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - OH THIS BOOK. I read it a while back borrowed and I still think about it, even though I read it and reviewed it SO EARLY. I love that you have the print with THE QUOTE! And I loved the story within the story. I basically loved everything about this book. I said something in my blog post about how it reminded me about a warm spring day because really, I loved it like I love the springtime. I totally understand feeling proud of Jessi Kirby for this book because it’s one of those that you really want to push into the hands of people, even if they aren’t avid readers or even if they don’t love contemporary. It’s one of the best I’ve read in a super long time, and I’m so happy that you like it a lot, M! So glad. I haven’t read other Kirby books but I seriously need to fix that problem like yesterday.

April 5, 2013 - 11:16 am

Tara - This book had such a personal effect on me that I will always think back to it. I completely agree that Jessi Kirby’s writing continues to grow and become even more emotional and heartfelt. She will always be on my auto-buy list from here on out… now if only she could be super-human and write a book like, every week 🙂

PS-I love that print on your wall! So many people have it and every time I see it I want to buy it.

April 5, 2013 - 5:26 am

VeganYANerds - I had no idea there was an aspect of mystery to this story and now I am so keen to read it! It’s on my “buy-while-in-the-USA” shelf, May cannot come soon enough!

Also, now you have me thinking about life and about how I should be doing more, more, MORE!

April 5, 2013 - 5:23 am

Lori - I read this one last week and loooooved it! The story was so beautiful. Jessi can do no wrong.

April 4, 2013 - 10:33 pm

Cassie - I’m SO excited for this! And you loving it put the icing on the cake, plus the comment about growth in Kirby’s writing! Yay! <3

April 4, 2013 - 9:56 pm

Lily - I loved in Honour so you can only imagine just how excited i am to read this one! I lvoe your thoughts on this book and am so happy you liked it! Only makes me want to read it even more now! 🙂

Lily @ lilysbookblog

April 4, 2013 - 4:04 pm

Magan - Candice — thanks so much! You HAVE to read it! I really hope you enjoy it! The plot was great and I loved that I couldn’t guess where the story was headed. I felt so invested!

Rashika — I think the praise is totally and completely worth it. Jessi deserves to be praised with what she did in Golden. I love that I can see her continue to grow in her abilities. Each book just gets better and better, and I think that says a lot about Jessi. She’s working hard to continue improving and fine tune her craft. I really hope you enjoy Golden!

April 4, 2013 - 3:55 pm

Magan - Alexa — I completely agree. It’s been almost 2 months since I finished Golden and just like you, have had a hard time compiling my words for the review. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to express my love adequately enough. I didn’t even post a chunk of my review because I was getting too wordy. Ha! So glad you loved it too! xo

Maggie — OH MY GOSH! So glad you love Katie Daisy’s things too. Aren’t they fabulous? I follow her on instagram and it’s amazing to see what she does. She has pillows at Crate & Barrel Kids, I think, and oh man do I want them. So what if I’m not a “kid”.

Tabitha — I am so, so glad! You do NEED to read it. Especially if this would be your first Kirby book. Not to peer pressure you or anything… oh, who am I kidding… totally pressuring you. PLEASE READ ALL OF HER BOOKS!

Sharon — I did enjoy it more than In Honor. I just feel like maybe Jessi wrote more personally this time. I’m not sure — it just really struck a different chord with me and I love what she did and where she went. Please read this ASAP. K, thanks.

Ginger — I’m so glad we read this at the same time, too. It was awesome to see how you and I connected with the story. I just am so happy for Jessi and the way I think people are going to embrace Golden. SO GOOD. And yes, you’re right — a beautiful story!

YAA Maggie — YES! I agree! I met Jessi at TLA last year and she’s the kindest, nicest person. Such a sweetheart. I can’t wait for you to read Golden either. If you loved In Honor, I’m POSITIVE you’re going to want to buy a million copies to give to friends! xo

April 4, 2013 - 3:53 pm

Candice @ The Grown-Up YA - This is such a great review! We were actually talking about this one earlier today and I hadn’t heard of it… but definitely want to read it now! Love the ideas in the plot and think it would be really interesting to see them played out!

Also, I LOVE picture collage you have! Very cute!

April 4, 2013 - 3:53 pm

Rashika - I have this waiting and I am so excited.
I’ve read other works by this author and wasn’t that impressed however this one is getting a lot praise and I hope it lives up to it! 🙂

April 4, 2013 - 2:33 pm

Alexa Y. - For weeks after I finished this book, I couldn’t find the words to express how I felt about it. I loved it oh so much – it’s now officially my favorite Jessi Kirby novel. I found Parker to be easy to relate to, and the story very compelling indeed. SO BEAUTIFUL.

April 4, 2013 - 1:43 pm

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - Great review! I am so excited to read this. I think Jessi Kirby is great and this totally sounds like her best book yet. And I clicked through to that Etsy shop the print is from and added like 5 of her prints to my favorites, thanks!

April 4, 2013 - 12:39 pm

Tabitha S. - You have me so excited to read this book! Don’t get me wrong, I was excited to read it before, but now I feel like I NEED to read it. And I actually haven’t read anything by this author before, so I’ll definitely be doing that so I can see her growth as a writer!

Great review.

April 4, 2013 - 11:18 am

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - I am so, so excited for this one! I can’t believe it was even better than In Honor, for you! Quite the feat, because that was a great book. Now I’m even more intrigued. Parker sounds like the kind of character I will connect to, as well. Great review, Magan!

April 4, 2013 - 8:43 am

Ginger @ GReads! - Oh this book! I still have moments where I find myself randomly thinking about it. I am so thankful we read this one together back to back. I needed someone to pour my heart out to as I fell in love with it, and you complimented that nicely 🙂

I have the same pride for Jessi after reading this book, too. Her work has always been one of my favorites, but this book just put it over the edge. What a wonderful lady to write such a beautiful story.

April 4, 2013 - 4:22 am

Maggie @ Young Adult Anonymous - This is so exciting because Jessi Kirby is one of those authors you WANT to support. I met her twice and she has such an infectious spirit and energy. I ended up buying 5+ copies of In Honor to send out. I can’t wait to read Golden. Great review, Magan. Love the print!
