    RATING: 4/5 ARC provided by Edelweiss and Sourcebooks Fire in exchange for an honest review You could say I'm a sucker for cute, lighthearted reads. Thankfully, this one did not disappoint. In this book, we follow Marnie, a girl who loves baseball but feels she might fail as a...

    Find this review and more on my book blog. WHAT TO EXPECT FROMOUT OF LEFT FIELD 1. Lots of mindless reading.Out of LeftField definitely doesn't have a lot of substance. It's incredibly shallow and typical--which was fine by me! Y'all have to admit: We have these certain m...

    I loved the idea of a girl playing on the boys team and the hint of a bff to more sold it. I liked Marnie well enough. She?s tenacious and talented and stands up for herself. The rest of her friends and their dynamic was quite odd. I struggled with how they could be supportive of...

    This was pretty cute, but not my favorite contemporary! It had the friends-to-lovers trope so you know i'm in. I also loved that it featured a female lead breaking the glass ceiling a bit with playing on the guys baseball team and OWNING IT. I think where I didn't end up liking this ...

    Out of Left Field was a charming, lovable, and fun contemporary romance novel! The main character, Marnie, was a strong and determined girl! There were so many times when people tried to tear her down, and she always stood up for herself. I loved how fierce she was and how she conti...

    I honestly think out of left field is shaping up to be my favourite kindle read of the month, I can't believe that this is the authors debut novel. It was utterly amazing and so realistically written, I felt like It could've involved any of my friends and family. A very relatable n...

    This was a fun fast read about a girl who wants to play baseball. There was definitely some fighting among the team after she joined but it wasn't the focus of the book like the blurb claims. It was mainly a cute rom-com and a girl trying to figure out what she wants to do in her frien...

    so I finished this book in an airplane after postponding reading it so many times .. it was just so boring and nothing was happening ..the book is about a tomboy Marnie who loves baseball and has a huge crush on her chilhood friend Cody .. the concept is nice but the plot was really ...

    4 Stars - Cute, fun and entertaining. Out of Left Field by Kris Hui Lee is a lighthearted and charming YA contemporary read! I?m not really into sports that much, so I don?t find myself immediately drawn to sports-themed books. I just never really know if I?ll enjoy the p...

    Out of Left Field is a lighthearted, sport-adoring, lots-of-fun novel that revels in the celebration of strong friendship, pushing the boundaries, and finding the courage to chase your dream. I highly enjoying reading Out of Left Field, and highly recommend it to readers who love playf...

    Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 5/11/18. A fun read! The emphasis here--as it really should be in YA--is more on Marnie figuring herself and her place in her world (with her family and friends, on the baseball team, what direction she wants her future to go in) and less o...

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. When I started reading Out of Left Field I wasn?t in the mood to read. I had other things I needed to get done. So when I sat down to read I told myself I had to read at least 10% of the book in the first ses...

    2.5 Cocktails I wanted to like this one so much more than I did. Discovering that your best friend has the same feeling for you as you do for him should have been one of those heartwarming, angsty young adult reads. Instead, I found myself not really liking Marnie all that much. She ...

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I was really looking forward to this book. I love sports romances, YA, and friends to lovers trope, so I thought this would be a hit with me. Unfortunately, I DNF at 35%. I can usual...

    *I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* I don't read many sports-themed books and when I saw this one on Netgalley I thought I should rectify that. Many people like reading about sports or like the sports aspect with romance, so because this sounded...

    3.25/3.5 out of 5.0 stars There were parts of this book I loved and parts that could definitely use some work. I'm a sucker for sports romances, baseball and hockey ones in particular, so this is right up my ally. I thought it was fun and cute for sure! Marnie was a good lead charac...

    This was great fun, just the thing I was needing. At times, I had trouble forgetting that it wasn't a Kasie West book, because the author's style is so much like hers- it wasn't always a bad thing, but it wasn't always a good thing either. It doesn't make sense, I know. I loved Mar...

    **3.5 Stars** This book was super cute. It was definitely YA and very appropriate for young teens. Marnie was your typical angsty with a side of slightly low self esteem, teen. She loved playing baseball with her friends and I liked that she decided to try out for the boys team....

    1.5 stars When a book is said to be perfect for fans of Morgan Matson, I instantly add it to my TBR. It also didn't hurt here that Out of Left Field was giving me Dairy Queen vibes. I had high hopes, and I couldn't wait to dive in! The result? Out of Left Field left me feeling ...

    As someone who was the only girl in a baseball league for years, and who, at age 14, was told by the all-male administration that I wasn't allowed to play anymore and to "go play softball" as if it's the same sport, I LOVE any book featuring girl baseball players, so I was so excited t...

    Out of Left Field by Kris Hui Lee, 320 pages. Sourcebooks Fire, 2018. $11. Language: R (100+ swears, 5 ?f?); Mature Content: PG (implied sex, mention of bisexuality); Violence: PG HS ? OPTIONAL Sara Fox watches as her best friend, Cody Kinski, gets hits with a violent pi...

    There was nothing that stood out about this book for me. It was a quick read and pleasant enough but I really didn't like any of the main characters. Cody was pretty much the only one who I could find it in my heart to like and we didn't really get enough of him to be able to decide wh...

    3.5 stars This was cute in a sense and I really liked the concept, especially how she proved the guys on her team wrong, but some of the execution fell flat. I will say I think the romance was so cute and I loved the way it unfolded, but I definitely wanted more because it felt like...

    I could practically smell the fresh cut grass and leather on the baseball gloves in Out of Left Field. This book was a sweet surprise, as I didn't think I would like it as much as I did, but then again I'm a sucker for a YA unrequited best friend romance. This one had it all: new and o...

    I received a copy of this for a fair and honest review. I am all about girl power. I think that anything a guy can do a girl can do as well. I think gender has nothing to do with being good at something. Marnie goes through a lot to prove she is worthy in this story. She loves to play ...

    First, thanks to NetGalley for giving me an e-ARC of this book. Super cutesy YA romcoms are totally my thing and when you add in a sports angle, I'm pretty here for it. This one was cute and fun, but I spent a lot of time yelling "OMG JUST USE YOUR WORDS ALREADY" in my head (and may...

    Nice look at Marnie's double dilemma of wanting to fit in with the guys, while trying to maintain her femininity. It's not an easy juggle and is made more difficult by the challenge of her best friend/maybe boyfriend's injury, coupled with the sudden realization that the guy who broke ...

    4 Stars - Cute, fun and entertaining. Out of Left Field by Kris Hui Lee is a lighthearted and charming YA contemporary read! I?m not really into sports that much, so I don?t find myself immediately drawn to sports-themed books. I just never really know if I?ll enjoy the p...

    Out of Left Field is a lighthearted, sport-adoring, lots-of-fun novel that revels in the celebration of strong friendship, pushing the boundaries, and finding the courage to chase your dream. I highly enjoying reading Out of Left Field, and highly recommend it to readers who love playf...

    Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 5/11/18. A fun read! The emphasis here--as it really should be in YA--is more on Marnie figuring herself and her place in her world (with her family and friends, on the baseball team, what direction she wants her future to go in) and less o...

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. When I started reading Out of Left Field I wasn?t in the mood to read. I had other things I needed to get done. So when I sat down to read I told myself I had to read at least 10% of the book in the first ses...

    2.5 Cocktails I wanted to like this one so much more than I did. Discovering that your best friend has the same feeling for you as you do for him should have been one of those heartwarming, angsty young adult reads. Instead, I found myself not really liking Marnie all that much. She ...

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I was really looking forward to this book. I love sports romances, YA, and friends to lovers trope, so I thought this would be a hit with me. Unfortunately, I DNF at 35%. I can usual...

    3.25/3.5 out of 5.0 stars There were parts of this book I loved and parts that could definitely use some work. I'm a sucker for sports romances, baseball and hockey ones in particular, so this is right up my ally. I thought it was fun and cute for sure! Marnie was a good lead charac...

    This was great fun, just the thing I was needing. At times, I had trouble forgetting that it wasn't a Kasie West book, because the author's style is so much like hers- it wasn't always a bad thing, but it wasn't always a good thing either. It doesn't make sense, I know. I loved Mar...

    **3.5 Stars** This book was super cute. It was definitely YA and very appropriate for young teens. Marnie was your typical angsty with a side of slightly low self esteem, teen. She loved playing baseball with her friends and I liked that she decided to try out for the boys team....

    1.5 stars When a book is said to be perfect for fans of Morgan Matson, I instantly add it to my TBR. It also didn't hurt here that Out of Left Field was giving me Dairy Queen vibes. I had high hopes, and I couldn't wait to dive in! The result? Out of Left Field left me feeling ...

    As someone who was the only girl in a baseball league for years, and who, at age 14, was told by the all-male administration that I wasn't allowed to play anymore and to "go play softball" as if it's the same sport, I LOVE any book featuring girl baseball players, so I was so excited t...

    There was nothing that stood out about this book for me. It was a quick read and pleasant enough but I really didn't like any of the main characters. Cody was pretty much the only one who I could find it in my heart to like and we didn't really get enough of him to be able to decide wh...

    3.5 stars This was cute in a sense and I really liked the concept, especially how she proved the guys on her team wrong, but some of the execution fell flat. I will say I think the romance was so cute and I loved the way it unfolded, but I definitely wanted more because it felt like...

    3.25/3.5 out of 5.0 stars There were parts of this book I loved and parts that could definitely use some work. I'm a sucker for sports romances, baseball and hockey ones in particular, so this is right up my ally. I thought it was fun and cute for sure! Marnie was a good lead charac...

    This was great fun, just the thing I was needing. At times, I had trouble forgetting that it wasn't a Kasie West book, because the author's style is so much like hers- it wasn't always a bad thing, but it wasn't always a good thing either. It doesn't make sense, I know. I loved Mar...

    **3.5 Stars** This book was super cute. It was definitely YA and very appropriate for young teens. Marnie was your typical angsty with a side of slightly low self esteem, teen. She loved playing baseball with her friends and I liked that she decided to try out for the boys team....

    Nice look at Marnie's double dilemma of wanting to fit in with the guys, while trying to maintain her femininity. It's not an easy juggle and is made more difficult by the challenge of her best friend/maybe boyfriend's injury, coupled with the sudden realization that the guy who broke ...

    3.25/3.5 out of 5.0 stars There were parts of this book I loved and parts that could definitely use some work. I'm a sucker for sports romances, baseball and hockey ones in particular, so this is right up my ally. I thought it was fun and cute for sure! Marnie was a good lead charac...

    This was great fun, just the thing I was needing. At times, I had trouble forgetting that it wasn't a Kasie West book, because the author's style is so much like hers- it wasn't always a bad thing, but it wasn't always a good thing either. It doesn't make sense, I know. I loved Mar...

    **3.5 Stars** This book was super cute. It was definitely YA and very appropriate for young teens. Marnie was your typical angsty with a side of slightly low self esteem, teen. She loved playing baseball with her friends and I liked that she decided to try out for the boys team....

    There was nothing that stood out about this book for me. It was a quick read and pleasant enough but I really didn't like any of the main characters. Cody was pretty much the only one who I could find it in my heart to like and we didn't really get enough of him to be able to decide wh...

    3.5 stars This was cute in a sense and I really liked the concept, especially how she proved the guys on her team wrong, but some of the execution fell flat. I will say I think the romance was so cute and I loved the way it unfolded, but I definitely wanted more because it felt like...

    I could practically smell the fresh cut grass and leather on the baseball gloves in Out of Left Field. This book was a sweet surprise, as I didn't think I would like it as much as I did, but then again I'm a sucker for a YA unrequited best friend romance. This one had it all: new and o...

    I received a copy of this for a fair and honest review. I am all about girl power. I think that anything a guy can do a girl can do as well. I think gender has nothing to do with being good at something. Marnie goes through a lot to prove she is worthy in this story. She loves to play ...

    First, thanks to NetGalley for giving me an e-ARC of this book. Super cutesy YA romcoms are totally my thing and when you add in a sports angle, I'm pretty here for it. This one was cute and fun, but I spent a lot of time yelling "OMG JUST USE YOUR WORDS ALREADY" in my head (and may...

    Nice look at Marnie's double dilemma of wanting to fit in with the guys, while trying to maintain her femininity. It's not an easy juggle and is made more difficult by the challenge of her best friend/maybe boyfriend's injury, coupled with the sudden realization that the guy who broke ...

    This was a great, short read to kind of get me back into the groove of good reading. I love how badass Marnie is and Cody is the best friend anyone would love to have. I also love all the little underlying turmoils like Marnie?s feelings toward her mom, all the college anxiety and of...

    Fun read about best friends falling for each other but both are too scared to do anything about it; throw in Marnie (one of the best friends) taking Cody's (other BF) place on the high school baseball team and things get a bit dicey. Kris Hui Lee has written a perfect book for those ...

    Out of Left Field is a lighthearted, sport-adoring, lots-of-fun novel that revels in the celebration of strong friendship, pushing the boundaries, and finding the courage to chase your dream. I highly enjoying reading Out of Left Field, and highly recommend it to readers who love playf...

    Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 5/11/18. A fun read! The emphasis here--as it really should be in YA--is more on Marnie figuring herself and her place in her world (with her family and friends, on the baseball team, what direction she wants her future to go in) and less o...

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. When I started reading Out of Left Field I wasn?t in the mood to read. I had other things I needed to get done. So when I sat down to read I told myself I had to read at least 10% of the book in the first ses...

    2.5 Cocktails I wanted to like this one so much more than I did. Discovering that your best friend has the same feeling for you as you do for him should have been one of those heartwarming, angsty young adult reads. Instead, I found myself not really liking Marnie all that much. She ...

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I was really looking forward to this book. I love sports romances, YA, and friends to lovers trope, so I thought this would be a hit with me. Unfortunately, I DNF at 35%. I can usual...

    *I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* I don't read many sports-themed books and when I saw this one on Netgalley I thought I should rectify that. Many people like reading about sports or like the sports aspect with romance, so because this sounded...

    3.25/3.5 out of 5.0 stars There were parts of this book I loved and parts that could definitely use some work. I'm a sucker for sports romances, baseball and hockey ones in particular, so this is right up my ally. I thought it was fun and cute for sure! Marnie was a good lead charac...

    This was great fun, just the thing I was needing. At times, I had trouble forgetting that it wasn't a Kasie West book, because the author's style is so much like hers- it wasn't always a bad thing, but it wasn't always a good thing either. It doesn't make sense, I know. I loved Mar...

    **3.5 Stars** This book was super cute. It was definitely YA and very appropriate for young teens. Marnie was your typical angsty with a side of slightly low self esteem, teen. She loved playing baseball with her friends and I liked that she decided to try out for the boys team....

    1.5 stars When a book is said to be perfect for fans of Morgan Matson, I instantly add it to my TBR. It also didn't hurt here that Out of Left Field was giving me Dairy Queen vibes. I had high hopes, and I couldn't wait to dive in! The result? Out of Left Field left me feeling ...

    As someone who was the only girl in a baseball league for years, and who, at age 14, was told by the all-male administration that I wasn't allowed to play anymore and to "go play softball" as if it's the same sport, I LOVE any book featuring girl baseball players, so I was so excited t...

    Out of Left Field by Kris Hui Lee, 320 pages. Sourcebooks Fire, 2018. $11. Language: R (100+ swears, 5 ?f?); Mature Content: PG (implied sex, mention of bisexuality); Violence: PG HS ? OPTIONAL Sara Fox watches as her best friend, Cody Kinski, gets hits with a violent pi...

    There was nothing that stood out about this book for me. It was a quick read and pleasant enough but I really didn't like any of the main characters. Cody was pretty much the only one who I could find it in my heart to like and we didn't really get enough of him to be able to decide wh...

    3.5 stars This was cute in a sense and I really liked the concept, especially how she proved the guys on her team wrong, but some of the execution fell flat. I will say I think the romance was so cute and I loved the way it unfolded, but I definitely wanted more because it felt like...

    I could practically smell the fresh cut grass and leather on the baseball gloves in Out of Left Field. This book was a sweet surprise, as I didn't think I would like it as much as I did, but then again I'm a sucker for a YA unrequited best friend romance. This one had it all: new and o...
