    3.5 STARS I seem to read a hefty number of novels that I can't divulge many plot details on, and this one falls into that category as well. If you followed along with my Goodreads updates, you'll have noticed my extreme surprise at a particular twist; from the reviews I've read thus...

    PRE-ORDER Amazon US * Amazon UK 3.5 Stars As She Fades is Abbi Glines' newest YA novel, following Vale McKinley as she tries to hold on to the only boy she's ever loved. This wasn't a story of flowers and sunshine, it was a story of walking through the pouring rain to get to yo...

    4 ?'s This is my first Abbi Glines' book besides the Rosemary Beach series. I guess I've been hesitant because you know, Rush. ~Sigh~ However, I did feel there was a bit lot of Rush in Slate. Vale and Crawford have been together since they were six years old. They're involved...

    DNF on page 86 I?ve enjoyed some of Abbi?s other books and I liked the synopsis of this one. Vale has a lot of potential. She?s smart and caring and seems to have a big heart. Unfortunately, her inner monologue is 100% about Crawford and that got super boring super fast. I...

    2.5/5 stars Okay so first of all, im a really big fan of Abbi?s books and i always have loved them for their simple and fun nature. This book really surprised me. I would first like to point out that the blurb on the back of the book and also on Goodreads does not match the plot. ...

    FRIENDS I AM GOING TO TELL YOU A STORY. (I'm not putting it under a spoiler cut because I cannot imagine any of you actually care? anyway). SO I AM READING THIS BOOK. IT WASN'T AMAZING BUT IT WAS ENTERTAINING WHATEVER. WE GET TO 60% THROUGH. VALE IS GROWING, SHE'S LIVING HER LIFE WH...

    3.5 stars Full review coming ...

    Story about a girl who's been in a car accident, her boyfriend lying in the hospital in a coma, and her growing attraction to the hot fraternity brother of one of her siblings. I've read Abbi Glines books before and they are a particular thing - very romance-y in an old-school roma...

    This arc was provided to me for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 3 Stars First, I must point out that the blurb doesn't match what actually happens in the book. The story revolves around Vale, who has been in a long-term relationship with Crawford. Their ...

    I was already on the fence about whether to continue with this one, and now that I know the twist, I'm even more on the fence. But the thing really holding me back is the writing. It all seemed very surface, formulaic, and very tell-heavy. First impressions and excerpt video coming soo...

    This was just your cliche contemporary but I actually really enjoyed it and found if very fun! ...

    Well. Well. Well. What do we have here? A book that I received as an eARC that I actually FINISHED the day it was released. Hooray for me! The accurate part of the synopsis: On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford are in a terr...

    After reading the other reviews, I am glad I gave up on this book before the "major plot twist". It wouldn't have made sense to me and would have made the time I put into reading that much less worthwhile. I found the one-note main character very hard to relate to. ...

    I almost dnf this book. Almost. Don?t bother reading the summary of this book, it?s lies. I thought this would be about a girl who finds another love while her boyfriend is in a coma, for her boyfriend to wake up and not remember her. I thought this because it says this...

    Rating: 3.5 Stars I have now read 28 books by Abbi Glines, and I keep coming back to her, time after time, because she fills a certain reading need of mine. Though this book was a lot lower drama than her previous books, it still had many of Glines' signature elements, which never f...

    ARC from Netgalley 3.5 stars Abbi Glines is an author who has been on my radar for years, but if you know anything about me, it?s that I am not one to give in to the the hype. If I don?t read a book before it?s released and there?s a lot of buzz surrounding it, it?ll pr...

    This was my first dive into an Abbi Glines book, and I doubt I?ll do it again. The writing was super trivial and childish, and the plot made no damn sense. It felt like two novellas crammed into one story, and the author tried to make some connections between the two. I would?ve mu...

    I was sent an advanced reader?s copy of this book by Pan Macmillan Australia in exchange for an honest review. This does not impact my thoughts on the book at all. Okay, so I did like this book, Vale was a lovely main character, very sweet, she loved her family and her boyfriend...

    For a more in-depth review watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XW1dV... This book felt like a basic coming of age/going off to college book but the lack of character development and slut shaming with male chauvinism made this book disappointing. We received an eARC of this boo...

    I'm going to start with what I liked about this book: Slate Allen. He is multi-faceted, well-developed, and captivating. You will be far more worried about what becomes of Slate than you will about what becomes of Vale and Crawford. I liked how Abbi Glines wrote him, and I liked the wa...

    Abbi Glines is one of those authors that bring nostalgia to me. When I fell off my reading back when I was 19, I read Fallen Too Far and I was sucked back into reading. Anytime I see that she is coming out with a new release I pre order it. I can?t help it. I really didn?t want ...

    This is a hard one for me to review so I'll list my likes and dislikes I liked the first half of the story with Crawford being in hospital and the chemistry starting between Slate and Vale. I didn't see the twist coming but thought it had exciting potential but it just left me askin...

    Review to come! ...

    I had expected something very different when beginning this book. Something a bit heavier given the description. I liked the main character, Vale, but had a tough time with the first 60%. With a lifelong boyfriend in a coma I expected much more heartbreak about moving on. The pace felt...

    PRE-ORDER Amazon US * Amazon UK 3.5 Stars As She Fades is Abbi Glines' newest YA novel, following Vale McKinley as she tries to hold on to the only boy she's ever loved. This wasn't a story of flowers and sunshine, it was a story of walking through the pouring rain to get to yo...

    4 ?'s This is my first Abbi Glines' book besides the Rosemary Beach series. I guess I've been hesitant because you know, Rush. ~Sigh~ However, I did feel there was a bit lot of Rush in Slate. Vale and Crawford have been together since they were six years old. They're involved...

    DNF on page 86 I?ve enjoyed some of Abbi?s other books and I liked the synopsis of this one. Vale has a lot of potential. She?s smart and caring and seems to have a big heart. Unfortunately, her inner monologue is 100% about Crawford and that got super boring super fast. I...

    2.5/5 stars Okay so first of all, im a really big fan of Abbi?s books and i always have loved them for their simple and fun nature. This book really surprised me. I would first like to point out that the blurb on the back of the book and also on Goodreads does not match the plot. ...

    FRIENDS I AM GOING TO TELL YOU A STORY. (I'm not putting it under a spoiler cut because I cannot imagine any of you actually care? anyway). SO I AM READING THIS BOOK. IT WASN'T AMAZING BUT IT WAS ENTERTAINING WHATEVER. WE GET TO 60% THROUGH. VALE IS GROWING, SHE'S LIVING HER LIFE WH...

    3.5 stars Full review coming ...

    Story about a girl who's been in a car accident, her boyfriend lying in the hospital in a coma, and her growing attraction to the hot fraternity brother of one of her siblings. I've read Abbi Glines books before and they are a particular thing - very romance-y in an old-school roma...

    Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford have been together since they were six years old. On the night of their high school graduation they are in a terrible car accident that leaves one of them in a coma. The other does their best to visit everyday, but college is just around the cor...

    This arc was provided to me for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 3 Stars First, I must point out that the blurb doesn't match what actually happens in the book. The story revolves around Vale, who has been in a long-term relationship with Crawford. Their ...

    I was already on the fence about whether to continue with this one, and now that I know the twist, I'm even more on the fence. But the thing really holding me back is the writing. It all seemed very surface, formulaic, and very tell-heavy. First impressions and excerpt video coming soo...

    This was just your cliche contemporary but I actually really enjoyed it and found if very fun! ...

    Well. Well. Well. What do we have here? A book that I received as an eARC that I actually FINISHED the day it was released. Hooray for me! The accurate part of the synopsis: On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford are in a terr...

    After reading the other reviews, I am glad I gave up on this book before the "major plot twist". It wouldn't have made sense to me and would have made the time I put into reading that much less worthwhile. I found the one-note main character very hard to relate to. ...

    I almost dnf this book. Almost. Don?t bother reading the summary of this book, it?s lies. I thought this would be about a girl who finds another love while her boyfriend is in a coma, for her boyfriend to wake up and not remember her. I thought this because it says this...

    Rating: 3.5 Stars I have now read 28 books by Abbi Glines, and I keep coming back to her, time after time, because she fills a certain reading need of mine. Though this book was a lot lower drama than her previous books, it still had many of Glines' signature elements, which never f...

    ARC from Netgalley 3.5 stars Abbi Glines is an author who has been on my radar for years, but if you know anything about me, it?s that I am not one to give in to the the hype. If I don?t read a book before it?s released and there?s a lot of buzz surrounding it, it?ll pr...

    rating: 3.5 ok first of all, i know the goodreads synopsis for this book currently describes it as YA... it's definitely New Adult. there are a few pretty descriptive sex scenes and several discussions about sex that are pretty vulgar. anyway: thank you Macmillan for sharing an A...

    "Everything was different now. I was lost. Alone. I didn't know how to find myself. I needed Crawford. Knox worrying about me liking the wrong guy was ridiculous. I loved Crawford and I had my entire life. A pretty smile and incredible eyes weren't going to change that. I wasn't shallo...

    This was my first dive into an Abbi Glines book, and I doubt I?ll do it again. The writing was super trivial and childish, and the plot made no damn sense. It felt like two novellas crammed into one story, and the author tried to make some connections between the two. I would?ve mu...

    I was sent an advanced reader?s copy of this book by Pan Macmillan Australia in exchange for an honest review. This does not impact my thoughts on the book at all. Okay, so I did like this book, Vale was a lovely main character, very sweet, she loved her family and her boyfriend...

    I'm going to start with what I liked about this book: Slate Allen. He is multi-faceted, well-developed, and captivating. You will be far more worried about what becomes of Slate than you will about what becomes of Vale and Crawford. I liked how Abbi Glines wrote him, and I liked the wa...

    Abbi Glines is one of those authors that bring nostalgia to me. When I fell off my reading back when I was 19, I read Fallen Too Far and I was sucked back into reading. Anytime I see that she is coming out with a new release I pre order it. I can?t help it. I really didn?t want ...

    PRE-ORDER Amazon US * Amazon UK 3.5 Stars As She Fades is Abbi Glines' newest YA novel, following Vale McKinley as she tries to hold on to the only boy she's ever loved. This wasn't a story of flowers and sunshine, it was a story of walking through the pouring rain to get to yo...

    4 ?'s This is my first Abbi Glines' book besides the Rosemary Beach series. I guess I've been hesitant because you know, Rush. ~Sigh~ However, I did feel there was a bit lot of Rush in Slate. Vale and Crawford have been together since they were six years old. They're involved...

    DNF on page 86 I?ve enjoyed some of Abbi?s other books and I liked the synopsis of this one. Vale has a lot of potential. She?s smart and caring and seems to have a big heart. Unfortunately, her inner monologue is 100% about Crawford and that got super boring super fast. I...

    2.5/5 stars Okay so first of all, im a really big fan of Abbi?s books and i always have loved them for their simple and fun nature. This book really surprised me. I would first like to point out that the blurb on the back of the book and also on Goodreads does not match the plot. ...

    FRIENDS I AM GOING TO TELL YOU A STORY. (I'm not putting it under a spoiler cut because I cannot imagine any of you actually care? anyway). SO I AM READING THIS BOOK. IT WASN'T AMAZING BUT IT WAS ENTERTAINING WHATEVER. WE GET TO 60% THROUGH. VALE IS GROWING, SHE'S LIVING HER LIFE WH...

    3.5 stars Full review coming ...

    Story about a girl who's been in a car accident, her boyfriend lying in the hospital in a coma, and her growing attraction to the hot fraternity brother of one of her siblings. I've read Abbi Glines books before and they are a particular thing - very romance-y in an old-school roma...

    Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford have been together since they were six years old. On the night of their high school graduation they are in a terrible car accident that leaves one of them in a coma. The other does their best to visit everyday, but college is just around the cor...

    This arc was provided to me for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 3 Stars First, I must point out that the blurb doesn't match what actually happens in the book. The story revolves around Vale, who has been in a long-term relationship with Crawford. Their ...

    I was already on the fence about whether to continue with this one, and now that I know the twist, I'm even more on the fence. But the thing really holding me back is the writing. It all seemed very surface, formulaic, and very tell-heavy. First impressions and excerpt video coming soo...

    This was just your cliche contemporary but I actually really enjoyed it and found if very fun! ...

    Well. Well. Well. What do we have here? A book that I received as an eARC that I actually FINISHED the day it was released. Hooray for me! The accurate part of the synopsis: On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend Crawford are in a terr...

    After reading the other reviews, I am glad I gave up on this book before the "major plot twist". It wouldn't have made sense to me and would have made the time I put into reading that much less worthwhile. I found the one-note main character very hard to relate to. ...

    I almost dnf this book. Almost. Don?t bother reading the summary of this book, it?s lies. I thought this would be about a girl who finds another love while her boyfriend is in a coma, for her boyfriend to wake up and not remember her. I thought this because it says this...

    Rating: 3.5 Stars I have now read 28 books by Abbi Glines, and I keep coming back to her, time after time, because she fills a certain reading need of mine. Though this book was a lot lower drama than her previous books, it still had many of Glines' signature elements, which never f...

    ARC from Netgalley 3.5 stars Abbi Glines is an author who has been on my radar for years, but if you know anything about me, it?s that I am not one to give in to the the hype. If I don?t read a book before it?s released and there?s a lot of buzz surrounding it, it?ll pr...

    rating: 3.5 ok first of all, i know the goodreads synopsis for this book currently describes it as YA... it's definitely New Adult. there are a few pretty descriptive sex scenes and several discussions about sex that are pretty vulgar. anyway: thank you Macmillan for sharing an A...

    "Everything was different now. I was lost. Alone. I didn't know how to find myself. I needed Crawford. Knox worrying about me liking the wrong guy was ridiculous. I loved Crawford and I had my entire life. A pretty smile and incredible eyes weren't going to change that. I wasn't shallo...

    This was my first dive into an Abbi Glines book, and I doubt I?ll do it again. The writing was super trivial and childish, and the plot made no damn sense. It felt like two novellas crammed into one story, and the author tried to make some connections between the two. I would?ve mu...

    I was sent an advanced reader?s copy of this book by Pan Macmillan Australia in exchange for an honest review. This does not impact my thoughts on the book at all. Okay, so I did like this book, Vale was a lovely main character, very sweet, she loved her family and her boyfriend...

    For a more in-depth review watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XW1dV... This book felt like a basic coming of age/going off to college book but the lack of character development and slut shaming with male chauvinism made this book disappointing. We received an eARC of this boo...

    I'm going to start with what I liked about this book: Slate Allen. He is multi-faceted, well-developed, and captivating. You will be far more worried about what becomes of Slate than you will about what becomes of Vale and Crawford. I liked how Abbi Glines wrote him, and I liked the wa...

    Abbi Glines is one of those authors that bring nostalgia to me. When I fell off my reading back when I was 19, I read Fallen Too Far and I was sucked back into reading. Anytime I see that she is coming out with a new release I pre order it. I can?t help it. I really didn?t want ...

    This is a hard one for me to review so I'll list my likes and dislikes I liked the first half of the story with Crawford being in hospital and the chemistry starting between Slate and Vale. I didn't see the twist coming but thought it had exciting potential but it just left me askin...

    I'm going to start with what I liked about this book: Slate Allen. He is multi-faceted, well-developed, and captivating. You will be far more worried about what becomes of Slate than you will about what becomes of Vale and Crawford. I liked how Abbi Glines wrote him, and I liked the wa...

    Abbi Glines is one of those authors that bring nostalgia to me. When I fell off my reading back when I was 19, I read Fallen Too Far and I was sucked back into reading. Anytime I see that she is coming out with a new release I pre order it. I can?t help it. I really didn?t want ...

    This is a hard one for me to review so I'll list my likes and dislikes I liked the first half of the story with Crawford being in hospital and the chemistry starting between Slate and Vale. I didn't see the twist coming but thought it had exciting potential but it just left me askin...

    This was my second time reading Abbi Glines and I already know that I am going to find all her backlist and devour it...she knows how to write a wonderful, steamy romance! This book in particular had a nice twist that I didn't see coming but one that I loved so much. Without getting ...
