This book was such a pleasant surprise. I’ve had it on my shelves for a while now (along with the other two books in the trilogy), but I listened to this via audiobook. I’m glad I did, too! The narrator was absolutely perfect for the role of Gwenyth, a 16-year-old girl who learns she’s inherited the time traveler gene, not her cousin!
Where do I even begin? I was immediately drawn to this book because of the main character who is biracial (half-white, half-Asian) like myself. Little did I know what a wild and heartfelt journey this book would be.
The great thing is that I won this review copy from a giveaway hosted by TheNovl. I was completely shocked when it came because 1) I never win anything, and 2) little did I think it would be one of my most anticipated releases of 2018!
This review was hard to write. Why? Because I can’t find a way to put my thoughts adequately into words. Are there even words to describe how important this book is? Most likely not, but I’ll try!
This book was equally heart-warming and heart-breaking. I found myself unable to put this book down, and I found it wholly a good thing.
There was no doubt in my mind that I would continue listening to this series via audiobook. It’s absolutely fantastic. I simply adore that there’s a full cast of voice actors along with sound effects and this oddly catchy tune that haunts the characters throughout the entire book, lol.
I definitely did not expect to enjoy this like I did. Granted, there were parts I thought just dragged on but the story as a whole was adorable and its heart was amazing. I was glad to dive back into Lara Jean’s world, to see her family again and experience the sisterly love and the new addition to their family, and to see her with Peter, all the while experiencing these new and sometimes final things throughout her senior year of high school.
So, I’m really confused at this book. I requested in via NetGalley and the publisher lists the release date as February 13. But when I check on Goodreads, it’s been out since 2014! I don’t know if there are content changes or it’s being released by a new publisher. But I’m going to go ahead and label this as an ARC review.
Thanks NetGalley and First Second / Square Fish Books for giving a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review.
I didn’t quite like this as much as the others, but it was still enjoyable. I initially listened to this via audiobook, but then couldn’t renew it from the library. Good thing I actually have a physical copy of the book. (I feel like that’s the story of my life for the past two years, haha.)
Oh my goodness, where do I even begin? My anticipation for this book was raw and pure joy. I think I did a fine job for myself by pre-ordering it as a birthday gift, considering it released the day before my birthday, lol. The book gods and Pierce Brown have blessed me tenfold and more.
I’m not one for fairytales. It’s true. And what might be worse yet is that I don’t read a lot of short stories because I always feel as if they’re incomplete. Perhaps I’m still bitter about Three Sides of a Heart… Who knows. 😂
But I knew diving into another book by Leigh wouldn’t disappoint. I was right. Oh, I was so very right. Not only is the physical book absolutely beautiful, but the stories are magical, powerful, with just a touch of darkness.
