Kristen Evey - Haha! I’m (slowly) re-watching Dawson’s Creek right now too. Really only watch it for Joey & Pacey so I’m having trouble getting through season 2 at the moment. SO MUCH TEEN ANGST, and I’m realizing I don’t care for any of the the other characters. Hah.

But back to the BOOKS! I recently bought Easy and am looking forward to reading it. This series sounds fantastic as well, and this third book in particular. Love interests that bicker and try to fight their feelings for each other?! I’m SO in!

Magan - Heather: I felt the same way. I was really dreading reading about Reid because he was just so terrible. I love how she redeemed him for me! I swooned hard core.

Heather Self - I loved this one! I never thought I’d like Reid after his D-Baggery in Where You Are. Now if Tammara makes me like Brooke I may have to throw in the towel as a writer and just bow to her greatness. lol

elena - omg i love bickering too so this story sounds up my alley! i like that she made it her own and not so predictable. 🙂

Anna - What? Bickering before they fall for each other? IN! I’ve got the first book of this series on my Kindle, so I guess I should get on it, huh? <3

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - If the guy who was going to be my future step-brother looked like Zac Efron, I honestly don’t know how I’d be able to resist… especially with those eyes!

This book sounds interesting, though I’m not sure I’d read it right away. I don’t know what makes me so hesitant about it, but I just feel like I don’t need to read this one right now, if you catch my drift.

Ginger @ GReads! - I struggled with the closure on this one, too. I don’t think it all could have been figured out by the last page, there was just TOO MUCH going on, but I felt some points should have been given a direction.

Holy hell at Zefron!!! He is a perfect choice of Nathan 😉

elena - I’ve actually heard the formulaic concern about Kody Keplinger’s writing too. I haven’t read THE DUFF but I read SHUT OUT which I liked enough, even if I wasn’t the biggest fan. I’m excited for this one because it seems like an interesting premise. I’m glad that even though you couldn’t connect to Whitley, you liked Sylvia and Nathan. It makes really happy to hear Sylvia is an anthesis of an evil stepmother! Thanks for your honest review, Magan. 🙂

Natalie @ Mindful Musings - That’s definitely one of the potential downsides of an author who’s writing in the same genre…the tendency for some of the books to become formulaic, like you said.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Kody Keplinger, especially about The Duff, and I totally need to read at least one of her books!
