The Summer of Us Reviews

    Apr 29, 2018

    Outside the window, the gray and brown buildings of London started disappearing behind them. Like a sped-up movie reel. Like the world on fast-forward. I need someone to explain to me why I feel so happy about this ending even though I knew exactly what was going to happen. I ...

    I will adore pretty much any summer travel story, but this really is one of the best YA ones I've found! The characters completely make the story ? there are 3 girls & 2 guys who backpack around Europe the summer before college. There's a kind of love triangle between one of the ...

    I NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER (like, ever) rate happy, light YA contemporaries 5 stars. But here we are. I usually like my contemporaries hard and gritty but I actually LIKED the romances and lightness in this book and I FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE LIKE FLUFFY BO...

    Any book that has a plot even remotely similar to ANY element of the 2011 Selena Gomez movie 'Monte Carlo', I'm going to read, no question. 'The Summer of Us' follows a group of five friends on the trip around Europe, and they're all dating the wrong person. Oops. I didn't care so ...

    apparently this is a sapphic travel romance??? sign me the fuck up ...

    This book is like a train ride. As in, you start at the beginning, and you?re introduced to these characters and their histories and you?re sort of overwhelmed with everything (just how you feel when you?re on a platform, getting on the train). Then you?re on the journey itself...

    This is not for people who are like "OMG the characters were so dramaaaaatic," but as I have no problem with that, I thought this book was lots of fun. Chemistry, travel, and gayness - I'm here for it. ...

    Thank you to The NOVL for a free review copy for promotional purposes. The Summer of Us is a whirlwind, travelogue adventure about 5 best friends and the trip that changes everything. Aubrey has always been a careful planner and a prepared student, but this European trip is testing...

    I?m somewhere between 3.5 and 3.75 stars on this one but for review purposes I marked it as 3. I?m not sure how memorable I would say this book is and it was frustrating at times, but I can honestly say all the characters eventually grew on me and I think Vinesse captured the fragi...

    Disclaimer: I received this free from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. Aubrey has only two weeks left before she leaves for college so she decides to go on a trip around Europe with her friends ? Gabe, Clara, Rae, and Jonah. Visting places such as Paris, Amsterdam,...

    When this came in the post, I felt a little giddy. Wrapped in a crisp world map with some string, and a fake boarding pass to Prague, was The Summer of Us, a serious yet exciting debut about the changing of friendships as you get older, told during one last summer trip through Europe. ...

    I always dream of having a group of friends gallivant around the globe for a summer break like those in The summer of us. It would be so much fun that you won't forget. Well, it is summer and I?ve been in a contemporary mood as of late so I was excited to dive in this book. IT's a li...

    3 stars In some ways, this totally lived up to my expectations, while in others, it was a little lackluster. The star of the show for me was the character dynamics. During the first third, I was a little hesitant because it felt like everything was going to be botched up--the men...

    An arc of this book was sent to me by Little Brown Young Readers in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I really enjoyed this book, even more than I expected! I practically flew through this book, which is quite a feat because I have found myself in an actua...

    I wasn't a huge fan of the majority of the characters in this book which is why it took me so long to read it. They weren't bad people but they were all just complete stereotypes and I didn't care what happened to them, which is never good as a reader. Also I really didn't like Jonah. ...

    The Summer of Us is exactly what the title suggests. It is a story of ?us? ? a group of high school friends who have just finished school, and before they head off on their separate ways to different universities they have a summer holiday in Europe. Best friends, two of them hav...

    *Thank you to TheNovl for sending me an advanced copy of this book to read a review* Okay, first of all can I just point out how freaking gorgeous this cover is? It's so pretty and some of my favorite colors and I just love it. Okay, now on to the actual contents of this book, haha!...

    Thank you so much to The Novl for sending me an ARC of The Summer of Us to review! ...

    3/10 OR 2/5 STARS Okay, so here?s the thing: this book had huge potential. There were so many things that could?ve gone right in this book, but the problem? None of them did. By a mile and a half, this was the most disappointing read of this year for me. For a little bit of b...

    Thank you Little Brown Young Readers and The Novl #lbyrpartner for sending me a copy to read and review!!! ?She realized that these were the things she was worried about forgetting ? these small familiar pieces of her old life. These fragments of things she would never get back ...

    First full review of the year, how exciting! I received an early copy of this book and let me tell you it was amazing. It comes out in June of 2018 and I highly recommend it to anyone that is a fan of contemporary ya and looking for a lighthearted read that does talk about the hard par...

    I really hate writing one star reviews. For the majority of this book, I felt that it could conceivably be a two-star read...until I got to this gem. "And in the center of it all was the Duomo, a cathedral with a spherical, rust-colored top, like a sun caught in perpetual daybreak. ...

    I'd rate more as 3.5 stars. I received an ARC from TheNovl for an honest review. As you can tell from the title, the book is a total summer read, as its premise is the European trip five friends take together at the end of their senior year in high school (right before starting...

    It was the summer that Aubrey and Rae had planned almost since they met each other: one last trip throughout Europe with their friends Jonah, Gabe and Clara. However, neither one of them are expecting so many complications before the trip even starts. Aubrey and Jonah are dealing with ...

    You know when you're a kid, there's this transition you need to make from being dependent on your parents to being dependent on yourself. InThe Summer of Us, Cecilia Vinesse explores this transitional period through five teens traveling through Europe together. Ok, when I was a ...

    I am not the biggest fan of YA contemporaries, but when I read the description of The Summer of Us by Cecelia Vinesse, I jumped at it. What's not to love about a book about five recent high school graduates traipsing across Europe with lots of drama? Best friends Aubrey and Rae are ...

    I?m somewhere between 3.5 and 3.75 stars on this one but for review purposes I marked it as 3. I?m not sure how memorable I would say this book is and it was frustrating at times, but I can honestly say all the characters eventually grew on me and I think Vinesse captured the fragi...

    When this came in the post, I felt a little giddy. Wrapped in a crisp world map with some string, and a fake boarding pass to Prague, was The Summer of Us, a serious yet exciting debut about the changing of friendships as you get older, told during one last summer trip through Europe. ...

    I always dream of having a group of friends gallivant around the globe for a summer break like those in The summer of us. It would be so much fun that you won't forget. Well, it is summer and I?ve been in a contemporary mood as of late so I was excited to dive in this book. IT's a li...

    3 stars In some ways, this totally lived up to my expectations, while in others, it was a little lackluster. The star of the show for me was the character dynamics. During the first third, I was a little hesitant because it felt like everything was going to be botched up--the men...

    I wasn't a huge fan of the majority of the characters in this book which is why it took me so long to read it. They weren't bad people but they were all just complete stereotypes and I didn't care what happened to them, which is never good as a reader. Also I really didn't like Jonah. ...

    The Summer of Us is exactly what the title suggests. It is a story of ?us? ? a group of high school friends who have just finished school, and before they head off on their separate ways to different universities they have a summer holiday in Europe. Best friends, two of them hav...

    3 stars In some ways, this totally lived up to my expectations, while in others, it was a little lackluster. The star of the show for me was the character dynamics. During the first third, I was a little hesitant because it felt like everything was going to be botched up--the men...

    An arc of this book was sent to me by Little Brown Young Readers in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I really enjoyed this book, even more than I expected! I practically flew through this book, which is quite a feat because I have found myself in an actua...

    I wasn't a huge fan of the majority of the characters in this book which is why it took me so long to read it. They weren't bad people but they were all just complete stereotypes and I didn't care what happened to them, which is never good as a reader. Also I really didn't like Jonah. ...

    The Summer of Us is exactly what the title suggests. It is a story of ?us? ? a group of high school friends who have just finished school, and before they head off on their separate ways to different universities they have a summer holiday in Europe. Best friends, two of them hav...

    *Thank you to TheNovl for sending me an advanced copy of this book to read a review* Okay, first of all can I just point out how freaking gorgeous this cover is? It's so pretty and some of my favorite colors and I just love it. Okay, now on to the actual contents of this book, haha!...

    Thank you so much to The Novl for sending me an ARC of The Summer of Us to review! ...

    Enjoyed this travelogue, YA romance friendship story a lot, ...

    I really related to this book. Full review upon release ...

    3/10 OR 2/5 STARS Okay, so here?s the thing: this book had huge potential. There were so many things that could?ve gone right in this book, but the problem? None of them did. By a mile and a half, this was the most disappointing read of this year for me. For a little bit of b...

    Thank you Little Brown Young Readers and The Novl #lbyrpartner for sending me a copy to read and review!!! ?She realized that these were the things she was worried about forgetting ? these small familiar pieces of her old life. These fragments of things she would never get back ...

    First full review of the year, how exciting! I received an early copy of this book and let me tell you it was amazing. It comes out in June of 2018 and I highly recommend it to anyone that is a fan of contemporary ya and looking for a lighthearted read that does talk about the hard par...

    I really hate writing one star reviews. For the majority of this book, I felt that it could conceivably be a two-star read...until I got to this gem. "And in the center of it all was the Duomo, a cathedral with a spherical, rust-colored top, like a sun caught in perpetual daybreak. ...

    I'd rate more as 3.5 stars. I received an ARC from TheNovl for an honest review. As you can tell from the title, the book is a total summer read, as its premise is the European trip five friends take together at the end of their senior year in high school (right before starting...

    It was the summer that Aubrey and Rae had planned almost since they met each other: one last trip throughout Europe with their friends Jonah, Gabe and Clara. However, neither one of them are expecting so many complications before the trip even starts. Aubrey and Jonah are dealing with ...

    I will adore pretty much any summer travel story, but this really is one of the best YA ones I've found! The characters completely make the story ? there are 3 girls & 2 guys who backpack around Europe the summer before college. There's a kind of love triangle between one of the ...

    I NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER (like, ever) rate happy, light YA contemporaries 5 stars. But here we are. I usually like my contemporaries hard and gritty but I actually LIKED the romances and lightness in this book and I FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE LIKE FLUFFY BO...

    Any book that has a plot even remotely similar to ANY element of the 2011 Selena Gomez movie 'Monte Carlo', I'm going to read, no question. 'The Summer of Us' follows a group of five friends on the trip around Europe, and they're all dating the wrong person. Oops. I didn't care so ...

    This book is like a train ride. As in, you start at the beginning, and you?re introduced to these characters and their histories and you?re sort of overwhelmed with everything (just how you feel when you?re on a platform, getting on the train). Then you?re on the journey itself...

    This is not for people who are like "OMG the characters were so dramaaaaatic," but as I have no problem with that, I thought this book was lots of fun. Chemistry, travel, and gayness - I'm here for it. ...

    Thank you to The NOVL for a free review copy for promotional purposes. The Summer of Us is a whirlwind, travelogue adventure about 5 best friends and the trip that changes everything. Aubrey has always been a careful planner and a prepared student, but this European trip is testing...

    I?m somewhere between 3.5 and 3.75 stars on this one but for review purposes I marked it as 3. I?m not sure how memorable I would say this book is and it was frustrating at times, but I can honestly say all the characters eventually grew on me and I think Vinesse captured the fragi...
