Born This Way – Poppy Dennison

“No one else had ever affected Hart like Dayton.”

 

In a word: Maybe read the thing. So it’s not that I didn’t like this book or anything, but it didn’t really do anything for me. I’m mostly ‘meh’ about it, to be honest. The direction it looked like it was headed in in the beginning made me think that I was gonna hate it, but then it turned itself around and went in a different direction, thankfully, but the story after that still didn’t hold my interest as much as I thought it would. I liked the premise, but the execution was a little lacking, most likely because of the short length. The characters weren’t really fleshed out, the world wasn’t really fleshed out, and the main couple didn’t have much chemistry together. The main relationship didn’t really sit well with me anyway, as I don’t feel it was very believable. Also the way Dayton ended up deciding to be with Hart was just too convenient and probably a bit premature considering the circumstances. It’s a quick read, and it’s entertaining enough to want to read all the way through, but in the end it’s probably not something I’d read twice.

Seven Tears At High Tide – C.B. Lee

“One summer to be happy and in love.”

 

In a word: Go read the thing! It’s a beautifully written story about two boys falling in love for the first time, and the meaning of choice. It’s got romance, fantastical elements, a fun cast of characters, so much cuteness, some angst, and two loveable dorks you just can’t help but root for.
