Lori - For some reason I have yet to read one of Kenneally’s books. Sounds like I need to change that NOW! :)

Alexa Y. - Oh wow. This sounds extremely appealing to me for some reason, and not just because of the summer camp aspect! I think I may need to dive in Miranda’s work ASAP just so I can read this one sooner :)

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - I am SO excited for this one! It sounds so great, and I really liked Catching Jordan. I want to read it even more after reading this review. I keep checking back for either of my library systems to get it in so I can place a hold on it and get it quickly. So far, no luck, but hopefully soon! Obsession can pay off. 😀

Vivian - I bought the 1st two books in this series bc everyone says how awesome they are and Miranda is great. I seriously need to read them soon tho! This one sounds like it’ll be just as amazing. Can’t wait to read it. Great review!

Jess, Books and Sensibility - I can’t wait for this one to come out ! I started reading Stealing Parker and have found her books to be ideal contemporary novels. I always enjoy a good book about the summer

February 25, 2013 - 7:22 pm

Mary @ My Sisters Bookshelf - I like each book better with her and i am glad to see this review fits the trend! Also, i went to summer camp for 8 years so this book pretty much has to happen for me :)

February 25, 2013 - 6:04 pm

VeganYANerds - I’m so glad to hear that the third book is good! I have books 1 & 2 but I haven’t read them yet, but I am looking forward to the series even more now :)

February 25, 2013 - 2:05 pm

Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - OMG, I’m dying to read this book, and your review isn’t helping. I’m so glad there are Parker and Jordan sightings and that Will plays a bigger role than I originally thought.

Ahhh, can’t wait to read this!

elena - Even though I am wary about the religious aspects despite your reassurances it’s not preachy, I really liked this line about the book: Things I Can’t Forget is so much about romance, friendship, and the magic and possibility that summer promises. I like ALL of those things! It sounds like this book really resonated with you & I know it’s definitely made you think. Thanks for the insightful review as always.

Tara - I have heard so much praise about these books and this author that I’m ashamed I haven’t read them yet :( You might have just sent me over the edge Estelle :)

Alexa Y. - That title certainly makes it sound like a love story. But even if it really isn’t, I do like the idea of this story. It would be intriguing to read about Neil and find out his story; a good character always manages to catch my attention, and he sounds like one.

February 22, 2013 - 4:56 pm

Estelle - E, thanks for pointing out the last lines. haha. It took me forever to be happy with them. :)

February 22, 2013 - 4:35 pm

elena - I would hope for a love story too with that title! It also reminds me of a Talking Heads song. I love the last lines of your review and I can see how it’s easy to feel for Neil.

February 21, 2013 - 7:08 pm

Jamie - Never heard of this one but I honestly feel like it’s something I would like! I just saw that Asheley said this is a reissue? Interesting!

February 20, 2013 - 8:36 pm

VeganYANerds - This sounds like a really interesting, but also quite a difficult, read, E. I’d like to think that things have changed, for the better, too!

February 20, 2013 - 4:16 pm

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - I didn’t realize that this was a reissue or anniversary edition until I looked this up on Goodreads just now! I wonder if the fact that it was written so long ago contributed to how it fell just a bit short in terms of it not quite being the love story you were hoping for? Great review, Estelle. Also, I really love the cover on this book. :)
