Alexa S. - It’s interesting to see how a book can affect a reader in such a big emotional way, but also have things that make that reader hesitant about rating it. While I haven’t read Maybe One Day yet, I’m still pretty curious about it! I like the sound of the story, particularly the friendship.

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I second everything you said. The hardest part for me was the feeling that Zoe was just never fully developed. Like you said, her whole life, even before Olivia got sick, was Olivia. I wasn’t as totally behind the romance, even though Olivia told Zoe it was fine I never got over the fact that Olivia liked him first (which sounds silly as a I type it, but that’s how I felt). It was a weird feeling to cry so much at a book, but then not really totally enjoy it or feel a connection with it.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Interesting! I feel like I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews for this one. Personally, I didn’t even have it on my TBR list, I think, because I just feel like I’ve read too many “illness” stories and at the moment, they’re just not appealing to me. Looks like it had some really good moments and I love the best friendship appeal! It also looks like it has its rough moments too… Still on the fence!

Lucy @ The Reading Date - I like books like this, and I’m planning to read it soon, but I’ll keep my expectations level. Sounds a little uneven, but the friendship story appeals to me and Calvin sounds great. Thanks for giving us the lowdown on this one!

Anna - Great points — on the one hand, I cried. LITERAL PUDDLES OF TEARS ON MY KINDLE. Which is fantastic. But a few weird bits like the rape one you called out took me out of the story.

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve been hearing similar things about this book. How people loved the friendship aspect of the book, but there wasn’t enough of a connection.

It’s hard to rate those types of books, I find.
