Shanella - I started reading this book on Pulseit but didn’t have time to finish. I was only about 10% in and didn’t get hooked, but I did see it had potential. I’m glad you liked it, this means I can put it on my TBR shelf ๐Ÿ™‚

Racquel - I didn’t want to read OCD Love Story because it seemed to cutesy for me (from my comments tonight, we learn that Racquel is really judgmental lol) but when it was released and all the “happy book birthday” tweets and reviews rolled in, I read a review that also said the book is more than the summary and cover and that it made them uncomfortable and they had to put it down too so now I really want to read nothing but THIS book. I already ordered it and I can’t wait to get back to the US so I can read this one and Wild Awake.

Tara - I keep seeing this book pop up everywhere but I don’t think I’ve seen it compared to Wild Awake before. I absolutely loved Wild Awake, so now you’ve totally sold me ๐Ÿ™‚

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - OH WOW. Okay, definitely moving this one up. I have it out as one of my “next-reads” but you have me like all goose-bumpy that I need to start it TODAY. (Did I just creep you out? I hope not.) Anyway, meeting this author and getting to talk to her in NY about her experience writing this book was really awesome but I also enjoy watching her tweet about her writing experiences. I know she’s tweeting NOT THIS BOOK but a newer book, but I still love how she thinks so deeply about everything and wants to make her words just-so and make it WORK. I can tell that applies here, in retrospect too. And this cover, it just pops, but to me it pops in a way that I expect it not to be bubbly. I don’t know. I already was super excited to read it but wow, I think you may have rearranged my pile today, E. That’s awesome.

Any @ bookgoonie - I don’t always want to pick up these deeper, challenging books BUT I always love them when I’m done. We need to see all these examples of messy lives.

Bookworm1858 - I really enjoyed this book-it was so painful at times (I had to step back from the story a few times as well) but so worth it. Bea had so many facets and was such a lively personality-I loved getting to meet her and hope others will too!

Alexa Y. - I think I really need to read this book, and I love that it’s so conveniently out tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‰ It sounds like the main character’s issues are really tackled in a unique, intelligent, believable way, and I like the sound of that quite a lot! Bea seems like she’d been a very interesting character to read about.

Anna - Oooh, I know what I’m reading next!

July 22, 2013 - 12:22 pm

Hazel - Will definitely read this!!! Bea seems interesting and I can’t wait to find out her story for myself. Awesome review!

Natalie @ books, etc - The fact that you compared the experience of reading this book to how you felt reading Wild Awake has me even more excited to read OCD Love Story! Wild Awake was fantastic, and if this is anything like this I know I will be falling in love with it. And I love the cover of the book, even if it is a little misleading!

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - I am so, so glad that this cover is misleading haha. I’m just so happy to hear that this isn’t really a bright and happy story. It sounds like the author does it justice and that makes me even more excited to read it! ๐Ÿ™‚
