Description on Goodreads:

Emmy’s best friend, Oliver, reappears after being kidnapped by his father ten years ago. Emmy hopes to pick up their relationship right where it left off. Are they destined to be together? Or has fate irreparably driven them apart?

Emmy just wants to be in charge of her own life.

She wants to stay out late, surf her favorite beach—go anywhere without her parents’ relentless worrying. But Emmy’s parents can’t seem to let her grow up—not since the day Oliver disappeared.

Oliver needs a moment to figure out his heart.

He’d thought, all these years, that his dad was the good guy. He never knew that it was his father who kidnapped him and kept him on the run. Discovering it, and finding himself returned to his old hometown, all at once, has his heart racing and his thoughts swirling.

Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. In Emmy’s soul, despite the space and time between them, their connection has never been severed. But is their story still written in the stars? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?

Readers who love Sarah Dessen will tear through these pages with hearts in throats as Emmy and Oliver struggle to face the messy, confusing consequences of Oliver’s father’s crime. Full of romance, coming-of-age emotion, and heartache, these two equally compelling characters create an unforgettable story.

Review:

I don’t normally review books DIRECTLY after finishing them. I don’t normally gush and ugly cry either. Emmy and Oliver is one of those books you HAVE to talk about after finishing. You need someone to talk to about it.

I started this book on a whim. I was wanting a fluffy, light hearted romance. I got that and so much more.

I don’t want to spoil anyone, so I will be as detailed yet not as I can.

I felt like I was there with the characters the whole time. Like I was a member of their group of friends. There with them as they surfed, talked and just confied into each other.

This story was heartbreaking, and worth every fracture along the way. The love and the friendship felt so genuine between more than just the main characters. I felt something for every single character. I love that the parents were so involved and just the fact that every character was so strong.

This is how contemporary should be written. This is a story that will be sticking with me for a long time. This is easily one of my favorite books of this year. It comes out on 5/23/15, my only regret is I have to wait til July to get a finished copy. ;_;

BUT! It will be well worth the wait.

My Rating: 5/5 all the way.

Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Anyone who loves to ugly cry. Anyone who loves a good, well rounded love story.

99 Days by Katie Cotugno

Title: 99 Days

Author: Katie Cotugno

Series: No.

Format: ARC

Page Count: 384

Publisher: Balzer + Bray

Age Range: 16+

Genre: Contemporary/Young Adult/Romance/Social Issues

Description on Goodreads:

Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.

Review:

Well. This is one whopper of a book. I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. When I first recieved it from the wonderful Heather Doss at Harper, (thank you again!), I was skeptical. Very skeptical. I know How to Love had been hyped quiiitteee a bit on Twitter and on Booktube… but I had heard very little about 99 Days. Heck, part of me forgot it was even coming out.

This book will live up to any of the hype it gets. Despite some iffy subject matter, I really enjoyed this book. I flew through it, and while I did have some problems with a few characters, the over all development was nice. The story building was nice, and a bit refreshing. It’s been a little bit since I read it; and I still find myself thinking about Molly.

I really found myself emotionally charged and invested in the story. I still want more! I need to know! I felt like a teen again, caught in what felt like “real life” was. It actually motivated me to grab her first book!

This book comes out on the 21st!

My Rating: 4/5

Would I/Who would I recommend it (too): Anyone who needs a good reminder of youth/Loves drama/Loves soap operas.
