    Should I break out in song and dance to "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep?" One lonely star. I'm just as surprised as you are, considering I just KNEW going into Eleanor & Park that I would love it, love it, love it. What reason would I have to believe otherwise? Almost all of my friends love...

    If you've experienced that first love - that heart-wringing, soul-squeezing, crush-the-air-out-of-your-lungs-whenever-you're-apart first love - this book will bitch slap your feels all to hell. I love it. I love its warmth and its vibrancy, its heartache and its pain, it...

    HOLY BATMAN THAT ENDING. I'M A MESS. THAT HURT, BUT IT DIDN'T AT THE SAME TIME. WHAT IS THIS FEELING EVEN? NYEAAHHH. ...

    I've often said that nobody should write for teens who doesn't remember what it was like to be one. Rainbow Rowell remembers, and has captured it beautifully in this book. ...

    ?I don't like you, Park," she said, sounding for a second like she actually meant it. "I..." - her voice nearly disappeared - "think I live for you." He closed his eyes and pressed his head back into his pillow. "I don't think I even breathe when we're not together," she whispered...

    I fully admit that I'm a sucky book reviewer. This book for me was so personal that this review is just for me. Eleanor is just that girl. The weird one that people pick on. Who knows exactly why? She doesn't stand up for herself, she doesn't fight back. I was that girl. This is me m...

    I should have read Eleanor & Park during winter, when it?s freezing outside. Because it completely warmed my heart, and it?s so hot already, I thought my heart would burst into flames inside my chest. Believe me or not, but I always thought I was immune to the usual you...

    ?She never felt like she belonged anywhere, except for when she was lying on her bed, pretending to be somewhere else.? I randomly decided to read Eleanor and Park again because I have no chill. Also, I recently picked up Fangirl (for the tenth time), so that definitely had a w...

    AMAZING BOOK! Heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time! I wasn't expecting to care so much about these characters and their relationship but I was completely caught up in this story. It's told in 3rd-person past tense, which I sometimes have trouble connecting with, but not ...

    I need to state right away that YA is not one of my favorite genres: I hated the Twilight books, I'm not a fan of paranormal romance and I've been avoiding the flood of YA dystopian novels. I want this to be clear because if you like YA, than my negative reaction maybe won't apply to y...

    Eleanor and Park are my literary OTP. Screw Romeo and Juliet. Or Anastasia and Christian Grey. Rainbow Rowell is able to make me feel way more about a scene with two characters holding hands, than any other author with an explicit sex scene ever could. ...

    If I could use one word to describe this story, it would be "adorable". Eleanor and Park fell in love on the bus listening to '80's music and reading comic books. Can it get any cuter than that? I submit that it cannot! Told in alternating points-of-view, this story will grab onto...

    This book was everything I've been searching for since Anna and the French Kiss. It gave me that melty, clenchy feeling in my chest, the warm fuzzies in my stomach. I was basically a mess throughout the entire thing. These two characters had my emotions going up and down like someone...

    I need to state right away that YA is not one of my favorite genres: I hated the Twilight books, I'm not a fan of paranormal romance and I've been avoiding the flood of YA dystopian novels. I want this to be clear because if you like YA, than my negative reaction maybe won't apply to y...

    Oh, man. This book made me feel ALL THE EMOTIONS! I ugly-cried at least five times while reading it. And, I can't lie, I didn't actually want to read it at all. It was one of those books I kept hearing buzz about, and words like "gritty" and "romance" and "abuse" and it just didn't sou...

    I absolutely adored this book! I don't really know what else to say. It was such a wonderful experience. Eleanor and Park have become a part of me, I was completely wrapped up in their story. Their voices are so real and honest. I love them. Plain and Simple. My only compliant is t...

    Eleanor and Park are my literary OTP. Screw Romeo and Juliet. Or Anastasia and Christian Grey. Rainbow Rowell is able to make me feel way more about a scene with two characters holding hands, than any other author with an explicit sex scene ever could. ...

    5 stars! ?You?re my favorite person of all time.? Eleanor & Park? this has been sitting on my kindle for a year. HOW has this been just sitting on my kindle for a year??? First off, I?m going to say if you have this book, don?t let it just sit on your kindle...

    Wow! There was so much about this book that I really loved. 'Eleanor & Park' was touching and beautiful in it's simplicity. This book captured the essence of first love and the perils of high school, while also tackling some serious issues, like abuse. I listened to the Audible ...

    ?He made her feel like more than the sum of her parts.? Eleanor & Park was the very first Contemporary I ever read, and this book is probably the reason why I love contemporaries so much. Maybe because they're quirky and small, but also because of the detail the romance ha...

    1.5/5 stars DNF at page 195 Apologies in advance to anyone who liked this book. This is simply my opinion. Looks like it's time for another unnecessarily long gif-filled rant review, folks. My friends, after this book: Me, after this book: Never have I e...
