Judith - Another Little Piece of my Heart sounds good! The fact that you stayed up all night finishing it really does say enough. I love it when books do that. As for Anything to Have You, I totally understand that the dual POV didn’t work out. I rarely like it when there’s more than one POV in a book, because it’s just so hard to get right.

Alexa S. - I absolutely adored ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE OF MY HEART! It was such a cute contemporary read, and I really enjoyed watching Jared and Claire’s story play out. I haven’t read ANYTHING TO HAVE YOU yet, but it sounds pretty good too.

Ellice - Oh, E. Another book you’ve made me want to buy. Another Little Piece of My Heart sounds like it will be right up my alley! (I’ve also got the Janis Joplin song stuck in my head right now.) So happy to see that you loved it. I haven’t read Audrey Wait yet, but I think I may just have to add that one to my radar. Great reviews.

Amy @ bookgoonie - You’ve got me excited about Another Piece of my Heart & excited about Paige having another book out.

Ginger @ GReads! - When I first heard about ALPoMH, I immediately thought of Audrey, Wait! And since I adore that novel, I was hesitant on reading this one. You’d think that would make me WANT to read it, but in this case, I was very, very unsure. It’s good to know my hesitations can be ignored and that this novel turned out to be something you really liked. I’ll definitely check this one out (without reservations, hehe).

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Hi E! These both sound like really fun books and I agree – as soon as I started reading your thoughts on Another Little Piece of My Heart I was thinking AUDREY WAIT!!! But you mention differences aplenty. I’m like you, though, I would want the same things at the end.

I actually haven’t heard of Anything To Have You but it sounds really interesting. I love the books with the drama sometimes (not always) and I’m curious about Aiden’s role in everything. I haven’t read anything by Paige Harbison but I’ve heard good things! Great thoughts on both of these!

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - How have I never even heard of Anything to Have You? I don’t even remember seeing it on Netgalley. It sounds interesting, based on your review I’m not running out to read it, but I’ll keep it in mind. I liked Another Little Piece of My Heart, not as much as you did, but I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the story and by how well rounded the characters were.

Alexa - Another Little Piece of my Heart sounds like such a great story. I do like when authors make the characters take time to be with one another and I do enjoy the tension. I’m sorry the ending was a little fast but it still seems like a good book.

Thanks for the great reviews!

Kris (Imaginary Reads) - Eek! Another Little Piece of My Heart sounds like an amazing read!! Anything to Have You also sounds interesting, but I really don’t like when scenes are replayed for us even if from another character’s perspective. It gets old fast. Also, Brooke doesn’t sound like a cool character. Lovely reviews, Estelle!

Magan - Thanks, Alexa! I am [still] behind on adding links. When yours goes live, I’m adding it! PROMISE!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I will definitely be linking your review when I post mine up! This book was insanely confusing and frustrating – and yet, so gripping and intriguing that you just couldn’t help reading on to find out how things would play out.

January 11, 2012 - 8:02 pm

Magan - Thanks, Sharon! It will definitely take you on a wild ride. Be prepared for a thriller of a story. I never knew where the story would take me.
