Ok this bool is different
From Another YA Novel Which another YA novel *Which Issues Of Death * issues of death blame i read history u left me the last time we said goodbye pushing limits this ine somehow lack of chemistry maybe because the writing even the story is good but i can not feel that connectiob with 2 main characters and there is too much physical stuff here that i found disturbing its like when u are in despair u need to find a biy girl who just as despair as u to be saved 35 starsSource I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to SOURCEBOOKS Fire and NetgalleyMonroe and Nathan are both hiding secrets deadly secrets Can they help each other to work their way through their problems over the summer And maybe find love on the wayThis was an okay story but it took a while to get goodI liked Monroe and Nathan although it took me a while I didn t really like either of them to start with but when they started baring their souls I finally started to like themThe storyline was okay but again it took a while to get going I found the first half of the book pretty boring and even the mystery over who Malcom was and what happened to him couldn t keep me interested When Monroe confessed all though I finally understood what she was going through and began to like herThe romance also took a while to find its feet but once we got there I did like itThe ending was good and I was glad that we got a happy ending It was just a shame that this book took so long to get interestingOverall okay story but took a long while to get interesting7 out of 10 Find of my ranting review on my blog No Bent SpinesReviewGUYS THIS IS THE FIRST BOOK I VE READ FROM MY BOOKSFORTRADE HAUL It s rather exciting And my oh my are we off to a rather spectacular startBoys Like You is basically what I hoped it would be with a few minor infractions Monroe made a mistake and because of it she is consumed by a guilt she can t seem to drag herself out from Anything besides sleeping is work than it s worth Then she meets Nathan She meets Nathan when she moves down to her Grandmother s home for the summer in order to heal At least that is what her family and friends are hoping forShe meets Nathan and she finds herself reflected in his eyes Or her finds himself reflected in hers It the same hollowness and the same sadness and the same hopelessness Julia Stone composed a fantastic tale ofwhat do I even call this Self redemption It felt a whole lot like redemption Monroe and Nathan have lost hope in themselves because they believe that they caused the tragedies that sort of destroyed what they used to be They tragedies changed them I mean how can tragedies not change a person And people react to tragedies in different ways Unhealthy ways Healthy ways But neither of these characters were able to keep themselves healthy I think it took seeing the other Nathan seeing Monroe and Monroe seeing Nathan for them to realize how far they fell So lovely reader why should ou read this book Although the story I felt should have been slowed down it was heart breakingly real and totally butterfly inducing And honestly what could be better I mean es of course there were things I wish I could change The story pace too rushed Okay so maybe it s really only a thing I think if it had been slowed down a bit all the reactions by the characters would have been slowed down a bit as well Which I would have appreciated I loved the character interactions I love the friends I love Monroe s grandmother I love the angry father and the sad mother and the nostalgic girlfriend Yes even her This was just a genuinely good book It wasn t fantastic and isn t going to stop the world but it was totally worth trading for and totally worth reading Later gatorsJackie I was lucky enough to read this one early Monroe and Nate have amazing chemistry and tons of layers to their characters Super emotional sexy heartwrenching I LOVED IT Provided by the publisher via NetGalleyA book about two broken soul teenagers Monroe and Nathan being tormented by their pasts trying to find a way to help each other get through it allTo be honest even it was not a bad read there wasn t much about this book that made it special There are way too many books out there with so much similar plots as this one I really have no idea how many books I have read that have been about remorsefulbroken people helping each other live again trying to redeem themselves and whatnot Therefore I have to say that I wasn t impressedIt was a decent book anyway The characters were nice though I wasn t too keen on perfect characters Based on the descriptions from the book they both were absolutely perfect living picture perfect lives if their broken souls were not mentioned Hard to say this is not the only book with perfect characters so I think I can let that slideAs for the romance I don t think I was into that much either While it was sweet a little bit cheesy and all it felt a li.

Monroe s secret until third uarter of the book I get that there s supposed to be somes secret until the third uarter of the book I get that there s supposed to be some but keeping something like this away for this long of a time just gave me no connection to Monroe during the time I didn t know her secret and her character wasn t so interesting to me However things improved when her secret was revealed So the two main characters are both physically attractive In fact that s the first thing they notice about each other Hmmmmmmm And they love each other too Hmmmmmmmmmm I wasn t a big fan of the romance I saw the chemistry in the beginning but when they actually were a couple I didn t really see it They mostly seemed to notice how hot their opposite was and had this sort of we both have dark secrets so we ll get along perfectly sort of thing going on The thing that bothered me was that in the beginning building up to the first kiss their that bothered me was that in the beginning building up to the first kiss their no building up It just happened And the romance is just wayyyyyy tooo perfect Like Monroe has to go back to New York at the end since she just stayed wherever Nate was over the summer but later we see an all too perfect ending Don t get me wrong I hate sad endings but this was all rainbows and sunshine and laughter and puppy dogs but I wanted rainbows and sunshine and clouds Like a sort of bittersweet ending I could really relate to Monroe and Nate Maybe I don t really get their actions but I get what they feel they re interesting characters and they could be people I know Especially Nate and Trevor the guy he put in a coma How Trevor s family treated him and all that stuff was so well written all the pain the family was going through I could sympathize with each characters Especially at the end view spoilerwhere Trevor s dad and Nate have a talk it was just so heart warming hide spoiler Monroe leaves NYC and moves in with her grandmother to Louisiana for the summer She meets Nate who is working on her grandmother s plantation Both Monroe and Nate have had something tragic happen to them and this kind of bonds them It was a nice read but nothing that I have not read before AND it just kind of ended I guess as a reader I am supposed to come up with my own epilogue The story ends three months after Monroe moves back to NYC Will there be a seuel.
