    idk about you guys but seeing a book cover that really explicitly shows two girls who are into eachother is giving me all kinds of feels When I was a kid reading YA I didn't even know showing ff couples in books was a thing and now we're putting them loud and proud on the cover and it's making me so happy this cover rules 20GayTeen is officially extended into 2019

    This is a decent enemies to lovers story I say ‘‘decent’’ because so many so called lovehate relationships are so tame There’s no real hate just annoyance There’s also no real reason to hate the other person just mild disagreements But what I liked about this book is that it shows how two people—in this case two teen girls—can misjudge one another completely assuming they have nothing in common and no way to connect only to find themselves being drawn to one another almost unconsciously Both protagonists—Sana and Rachel—have their own lives yet somehow their lives become intertwined when they have a misfortunate or perhaps very fortunate accident that results in them having to work together for some time It’s hard to hate someone or keep hating someone when you’re both working toward a common goal unless you’re a masochist who would rather fight continuously I say masochist because yes you’re hurting the other person during fights but you’re also very much hurting yourself Watching Sana and Rachel especially decide to stop being masochists made me rather happy I connected with Sana better than I did with Rachel because she is torn between going to an Ivy League school and working abroad right after graduating high school She knows what her family would rather she chose but she decides to fight for her own wishes which she hopes will make her happy in the end Because what’s the point of studying something for many years if it will only make you miserable? Ever head of that saying ‘‘If you do something you love you will never work a day in your life’’ Sana is trying to determine if medicine is the right path for her and I admired her for itIt’s an engaging realistic tale that should appeal to anyone who loves reading about characters pushing through fear doubt and insecurities in order to follow the path they were meant to walk on Blog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’

    This was cute as shit This is an adorable YA ff romance that I didn’t know I needed until I read it It’s hate to love and both of these two main characters were so fleshed out and this story gave me so much lifeWe have Sana this absolutely gorgeous cheerleader who is also a very out of the closet lesbian She gets described in this book as a south Asian Elizabeth Taylor Then we have Rachel Who is taking a film class and she’s directing her first film for this project and she absolutely hates Sana because Sana asked Rachel out when they first met and Rachel thought she was making fun of her Rachel’s family is very poor her Mom walked out on them and her and her Father are barely making it Sana comes for a wealthier family because her Mother is a producer and she’s worked her way up in Hollywood but she has a complicated relationship with her Father Because of a hilarious situation that happens in the beginning her film teacher reuires Sana to be the lead actress in Rachel’s film and this understandably upsets her because she’s her biggest enemy But then the two start to bond and get to know each other and it’s freaking cute I absolutely love movies as much as I love books so it was very fun to read about a character who also loves movies and is directing her own Not sure why she hates Tarantino’s films so much though he’s a legend but whatever lol I’m also from Southern California so I love that this book takes place in Southern California And this book describes the REAL Los Angeles not the sugar coated la la land version that we so often see in fiction Which I really appreciated it talked a lot about the smog and horrible traffic and the god damn Santa Ana winds ughhh Those are the worst hahaTheir relationship was so cute and their banter was so freaking funny I loved it and it was such a slow burn gaaaaahh it was killing me nothing happened between them for so long I also appreciated how well fleshed out these main characters are along with their families I felt bad for both of their situations for different reasons and I just felt like they were so real I’ve just been waiting a long time for a great ff romance and we finally have one so hooray

    25 starsThis book wasn't awful at all I just felt that it was weighed down by a lot of structural issues and it was also steeped in a lot of film references which is something I'm personally not interested in I actually really enjoyed the characters and character development which is what typically engages me best in books so it did a good job at that I liked how each girl had their own role at school and in their families and you got to see both sides of it The hurdle I couldn't get past however was how this book had very little flow Maybe it was because the book only took place over one month so everything felt unrealistic or maybe it was just that random scenes were thrown together back to back but this book just didn't read very smoothly at all There was no gradual progression of the girls' changing and falling in love even though they are very different people at the beginning and end of the book The writing style itself wasn't necessarily bad but I feel like it focused a lot on meandering inner monologue rather than scene description which I was craving I would definitely read from this author and I liked the relationship in this book but this book was just barely 300 pages and was yet uite difficult to get into and difficult to want to pick back up because the way it was written just didn't capture my interest even though the characters themselves were cute and interesting

    what time is it?? checks watch sad boi hour Listen up my 23 followers I am most definitely not over the moon I am under the moon because I had hoped that this could be one of my favorites of 2019 It is notThank you so much to Feiwel Friends for providing me w an arc of this in exchange for review This is an honest review 3 blog reviewNonetheless three stars is NOT a bad rating I actually really enjoyed this book and was thoroughly engaged for the majority of it Therefore I would like to list all of the uite good things🌷I mean can we talk about the cover? I would like to devote 4 and a half sonnets dedicated to how amazing the cover is and how important it will be to readers to see themselves on the cover and the marvel that is the TWO BROWN LESBIANS ON THE COVER YES🌷The sexuality within this novel isn't presented as something the main characters ever need to tackle with; it's completely natural and casual Both the characters have already known for a while exactly who they're interested in girls And there aren't many extreme occasions of homophobia but there are microaggressions🌷Filming is a huge part of this novel and I think brown film makers is something I've been seeing a lot this novel My So Called Bollywood Life From Twinkle with Love which I am so here for I think that any person who's a fan of the story of Odysseus but retold will really love those aspects woven throughout the plot🌷And well the premise itself is amazing Enemies to lovers poc main characters brown author poc on the cover sapphic romance This is enough to give me sustenance for the rest of my lifeHowever the premise kind of amped up my hopes? I'm really divided on my opinions on this novel because they really changed from my first sitting to my last sitting Like enemies to lovers guys One of the universally beloved tropes that guarantees the angst that we need and long for But I can't help but think that this book missed the mark on the enemies to lovers I've seen other reviewers say this too but Rachel Recht honestly seemed unnecessarily mean I love brutally honest characters but Rachel was always angry at everyone and just sniped at everyone no matter what? The groundwork for Rachel's distaste towards Sana was rooted in one of the biggest misunderstandings on the face of this planet and listen Listen Even though it was an unrealistic misunderstanding— Rachel thought Sana asked her out as a prank— there was still room for me to be convinced by Rachel's train of thought And I wasn't convinced? I feel like this novel just failed to effectively get me to completely root for Rachel; Rachel had so much of a vendetta against pretty people that failed to garner my support Like I saw where Rachel was coming from but the narrative failed to convince me completely that her beliefs were totally reasonable; they just seemed like they were there to create conflict between Rachel and Sana and to make Rachel an unlikeable characterAlso there was a lot of unrealistic dialogue which really confused me Some of the writing was really awkward and clunky and I was in pain when I started noticing the writing and all of the unnatural sentences Listen even though I was disappointed by this I would like to give the go ahead for any new readers venturing into YA to read this I am extremely picky with both my writing and my contemporaries so this is uite possibly a me thing edit Something another reviewer brought up was that the book never used the phrases ueer or gay or lesbian which they found to be hurtful which is a completely valid complaint So just be mindful of this if you're looking for go into the book I don't want anyone to be hurt 3Trigger warnings for heteronormativity and sexism Ahhh this is definitely not a full list but I'm editing this a couple months after reading it and I don't remember everything I'll wait until other people post reviews w their lists so I can update mineSpecific representation includes lesbian rep both the main characters an ff romance a Jewish Mexican main character Rachel and a Muslim biracial main character who is half Persian half Indian Sana blog review

    DNFI wanted SO BADLY to adore this but these characters are whew I hated them both from their respective introductions and there's no reprieve in sight They're both so arrogant and Rachel is legitimately a cruel hearted bully from the first page we meet her on and while I know a lot of readers will have fun watching the character development that I'm sure probably occurs later on in this story I couldn't make it through well enough to find out firsthand Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review

    damn I really liked this one I liked the writing style something I know some people disliked it helped me connect with the characters Sana and Rachel and oh how much I loved these girls I loved Sana someone who is so unsure about her future but who knows what she wants she's someone who knows the final destination she just can't figure out which way to get there she's hardworking and true to herself and I loved Rachel my smol angry mexican jewish girl I loved how angry she was it was refreshing to see an author allowing a female character to be angry it's usually something people don't like but her being angry all the time was just so relatable she's angry and sometimes she doesn't know why but she's using this anger she's turning it into something productive she's fuelled by it this is such a beautiful book with moments that broke my heart and uotes I had to write down such a beautiful book it reminded me a lot of everything leads to you it had the same vibes and aesthetic huh just loved it “You can listen to that voice inside you You don't have to keep going because you think you locked yourself into a decision so long ago and now you can't change your mind”small edit november 20th 2019 I decided to give this book 5 stars and not my original 45 because since I've read it back in June I just cannot stop thinking about it and whenever I do think about it it's as a favourite
