3.5 stars Because it s Sarah Dessen, this is a very pleasant read But it s not what I d consider one of her standouts, since it doesn t have moments that quietly hit you the way her best books do Still, Mac and Sydney are cute together Sarah writes the most wonderful everyday conversations about nothing and boys who manage to be appealing despite not doing anything particularly dramatic and the brother sister storyline ended well, even if it didn t quite have the tension or emotional impact 3.5 stars Because it s Sarah Dessen, this is a very pleasant read But it s not what I d consider one of her standouts, since it doesn t have moments that quietly hit you the way her best books do Still, Mac and Sydney are cute together Sarah writes the most wonderful everyday conversations about nothing and boys who manage to be appealing despite not doing anything particularly dramatic and the brother sister storyline ended well, even if it didn t quite have the tension or emotional impact that I think was intended Additionally, I don t have beef with fictional parents too often, but the hyper controlling mom storyline here dragged out way too long So if you re a die hard Dessen fan, just know this one s fine to pass the time, but it might not be one of your favorites And if you re new to Dessen and like quieter contemporary YA that are about friendships and family and ordinary girls growing up with a nice, healthy bit of swoon thrown in , you might want to start with The Truth About Forever or Just Listen I fell in love with her after those and after reading everything she s published except for one book that I m hoarding for a rainy day , and despite my middling feelings on this one, I ll still happily read anything she writes An advance copy was provided by the publisher P.S Food craving warning This book is gonna make you want to eat piles and piles of pizza and French fries So be prepared this was only my second sarah dessen novel, but i think its safe to say that i am a becoming a fan of her style and stories theres just something so effortless about her writing there is a nice, easy quality when it comes to the prose and the flow of the dialogue is quite natural i think this is such an asset when it comes to the type of stories she tells, because the simplicity of the writing strips away any distractions and allows the reader to focus on the

the simplicity of the writing strips away any distractions and allows the reader to focus on the heart of the story in a very effective way i loved being able to read about sydneys ability to adapt to a really trying situation and also how she was able to learn about herself and grow along the way one of my favourite things was even though she admitted that she had changed and made new friends, she still understood the importance of those who were in her life before and didnt lose touch with her old friends i thought that was really neat and even though i enjoyed this, there were a couple of tiny issues that i wanted to briefly mention as much as i loved the characters, they just felt very familiar im pretty they could easily be swapped out and put in another sarah dessen novel and i wouldnt even be able to tell the difference also, the ending felt a little rushed there were so many complex issues discussed within the plot of this book and it felt like they were all resolved within the last chapter just a little anticlimactic for considering the time put into reading this overall, this was your standard YA contemporary filled with growth, friendship, romance, family, and everything in between perfect for those looking for a light and easy read that has some depth to it 3.5 stars It s been close to five years since I last read a Sarah Dessen book In my defence, she doesn t publish them every year, but I guess I just forgot how enjoyable they truly are I had my reservations going into this novel, because the title made me think that there was going to be a huge amount of religion, which I prefer to stay away from, but religion is not one of the themes, fortunately for me Since I know what it s like to have an older brother who gets into trouble, I connected

fortunately for me Since I know what it s like to have an older brother who gets into trouble, I connected with Sydneythan I could have hoped to While my brother never actually got sentenced for anything, he did do some, pardon my language, stupid things, just like Peyton did Except Peyton actually paralyzed a guy, so now he has to do prison time It s not just that Sydney lost her brother she also lost her parents Peyton has become their sole focus They barely pay attention to her It didn t use to bother her, but it s starting to make her feel very lonely I absolutely believe Sarah Dessen has created some unforgettable characters here Lovely Sydney is, of course, one of them, and so are all the new friends she has made changing schools I appreciated the low amount of romance and the high focus on family and friendship relationships While there is a love interest who is good in every way this isn t about Sydney falling in love It s about her gaining confidence, becoming visible again in the eyes of her family and overcoming her fears Sarah Dessen s writing is majestic Alright, maybe not, but I just really wanted to use that word, because I never get the chance to She does write beautifully though, even if not necessarily poetically She doesn t write to impress or draw tears to our eyes she writes to describe and create realistic settings Although there are some heavy scenes that definitely stirred something inside me Recommended Go read now Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin That s the thing, though You always think you want to be noticed Until you

this book by just using words I don t even think I can give justice to this book through this review, because until now I m still in a state of an emotional high.Saint Anything is INCREDIBLY AMAZING I ve just marked it as a new favorite, because it s hard not to Sarah Dessen has written something so powerful and heartfelt and a dozen other expressive adjectives that can t even begin to adequately describe how great this book is Saint Anything isn t a total romance and a common story you often encounter in a Young Adult contemporary book It s deeper and a lotemotional It basically talks about family relationships, personal growth, tragedy recovery, true friendship, and love.What made me admire this book was the writing style Sarah Dessen has this eloquent, beautiful way with words that flow with enough sensitivity and understanding All throughout the book, I felt the calming, comforting feels which is a rare thing that happens to me when reading a book.Everything in Saint Anything is captivating It showcases real life the ups and downs, struggles, and joy we feel It also has a well plotted ending which I couldn t imagine being anyperfect I have to admit that after experiencing this emotional journey, I had sad and happy tears This book will stay with me for a very long time Rating 5 Stars 3.5 starsYou really only fall apart in front of people you know can piece you back togetherThis is my first Sarah Dessen book and if the author is a consistent writer, then judging by the way she wrote this novel, I could say that she is one of the most wonderful, wholesome YA writers out there The narrative is very simple but endearing It has something in it I can t explain that makes you feel close to home It isn t trying to emotionally overwhelm you It is simply just telling you 3.5 starsYou really only fall apart in front of people you know can piece you back togetherThis is my first Sarah Dessen book and if the author is a consistent writer, then judging by the

you feel close to home It isn t trying to emotionally overwhelm you It is simply just telling you a lovely story There arethan four hundred pages to the book and that s kind of long for a YA contemporary novel but this didn t feel long at all I was actually surprised it has already ended.The main character, Sydney, is genuine and relatable She is what mainly gripped me to the story I like how she is portrayed as a good girl through and through despite being constantly neglected by her parents I also took note of the components of the entire story having this really strong connection with one another collectively putting across a unified, very significant meaning Even the book cover is meaningful There is the right amount of romance, suspense, and family drama which isn t the overwhelming kind Finally, even though the plot was not designed to be intense as it mainly portrays how a young girl has lived in the shadows of her older brother whether what he did was good or bad, it was still a very absorbing read.It isn t a perfectly written story Like many YA contemporaries, you ll find some issues not really major unresolved but I like how there were proper resolutions to the main conflicts that needed to be resolved Thanks to Pearly for the recommendation Check out her lovely review FINALLY.I dedicated the year of our lord 2018 to a little thing called the Sarah

rereading Sarah Dessen books and reliving my youth in order to Prepare Myself for her by then newish release, Once and For All It, uh It did not go well.Which is fair, honestly I should not expect myself at the ages of 20 and 21 to like the same things I did when I was 13 Because those things included wearing 18 coats of mascara in a misguided attempt to resemble the characters of the television program Pretty Little Liars and the television program Pretty Little Liars Neither of which scream Refined Taste.However, I was still disappointed Because I still love fluffy contemporaries okay fine, I read them a lot I do not love them often and I love nostalgia So that s a recipe for success, if you ask me Turns out it s actually a recipe for a whole lot of two star ratings But this book THIS BOOK.This one was my favorite when I first read it in 2015, at the ripe old age of 17, and it is my favorite now, still, to this day It has everything I love in a contemporary Slow burn romance built from friendship Friendship Pizza, and in depth descriptions of pizza Summertime Complicated family dynamics that are magically and completely resolved within 300 pages Coming Of Age.This book is a dream and I have simply zero complaints.For complaints, see any other Sarah Dessen review I have written.Bottom line YAY sarah dessen came thru sarah dessen come thru Initial reaction WHAT I am beyond excited This just made my day week year life.I have been waiting for this news ever since Sarah published this blog post entitled Abandoning And listening where she said I abandoned my book I m not a writer right now But I am a mom and a wife and a daughter and hopefully a decent person I am walking down my own mountain as the race, such as it is, continues on above me with great riders

published this blog post entitled Abandoning And listening where she said I abandoned my book I m not a writer right now But I am a mom and a wife and a daughter and hopefully a decent person I am walking down my own mountain as the race, such as it is, continues on above me with great riders in the lead I ll get back to it someday But for now, I m following my own path One step at a time.So there may not be a book from me right on schedule in summer of 2015 And now you know why I m not sure if it s the best idea to share all this on the internet, basically rolling over and showing my soft, tender underside to anyone who peeks in Admitting your failures is no picnic But this space, this blog, has always been a safe one for me, and I wanted you, my friends and readers, to know why I might not tweet or blog as much for awhile I need to rest I think my book was trying to tell me that it just took me a long time to listen I m listening now.Not being dramatic, I felt like my life as a reader was being totally crushed that day It would be a similar to how one would have felt if you found out that they were not going to make the last Harry Potter movie ANGER but not at Sarah Dessen, because she is perfect and I could never be angry with her Just anger at the situation Then TEARSAnd after that, I had to remind myself that it was just fiction Just books.But books are wonderful.And these aren t just any books, and Sarah Dessen isn t just any author So I will wait for Saint Anything in 2015 with bated breath, and I will be reading it as soon as it comes out Reaction after reading the book THANK GOODNESS I was so worried that I was going to hate this It s not that I ve ever read a bad Sarah Dessen book, it s just that her past two weren t my favorite and I had my concerns After reading the first reviews though, I grewandoptimistic I decided to just take the plunge and went straight for a hardback copy Soon I was sucked into the world of Sydney While not the most interesting of Dessen s leading females, she is one of the most relatable for me personally There are a lot of similarities between Sydney and Auden from Along for the Ride, who I immediately related to as well I appreciated that the main focus of this book was on personal growth While most of her other books are too, they always share the limelight with romance storylines Yes, there was a love interest, but it didn t take center stage Instead there was a lot of inner reflection from Sydney s point of view.Family drama Sibling issues Friendship struggles Pressure in academics Check Check Check and Check.There was also a traumatic event that set everything into motion, one of which I can also sort of relate to not personally, but within my family and community I liked how Sydney reacted to everything It was realistic awkward tense just as it should be And in the midst of all that, Sydney reflected on how she never felt seen Again, something else I can relate to Of course people saw Sydney, but not for who she really was, just what they wanted her to be It took her new friends to show her that it s okay to love the root beer suckers that everyone else hates But really, do most people not like those Because they re one of my favorite flavors too There were several similarities between Saint Anything and Dessen s previous books in terms of plotlines and character development, but was a little darker andserious There were still the telltale signs that it was a Dessen novel however, it was just To best explain my feelings, I will take a direct excerpt from when Sydney s mom was trying out a new recipe Here goes nothing, she said, shaking some in More steam rose up, followed by another blast as the curry powder hit She poked at the vegetables with her spoon, folding them over once, then again What do you think It s a change That it is She tossed in somecumin, then leaned in close, taking a long sniff, then gestured for me to do the same Hesitantly, I did It didn t smell bad or good Just new Different Oh, and if you ever meet an Ames in your own life, tell him my fist says hi What a creeper *Download Pdf ⇗ Püha Misiganes ⇱ Sydney karismaatiline vanem

out pretty good, and I thought that Layla, the girl that Sydney met at her new school was a really good friend, and I hoped that things would go well for Sydney After the 35% mark though things went really downhill The pace was too slow, very little of interest happened, and Sydney s parent s actually got worseI m seventeen, I told them I can stay alone for a weekend That s not happening, my mom told me I think we all know well what a lack of supervision can lead toThere was a little bit of romance, but it didn t appeal to me When Sydney got a little bit interested in a certain boy I was just like where did that come fromHad I really just almost kissed himThe ending to this was okay, but I was pleased that the book had ended really This book was so promising in the beginning, but it just lost its way, and lost my attention.6 out of 10 I totally read this and was so engrossed I missed my stop on the train and had to wait outside in 7 degree temperatures for 10 minutes for the next one back to my stop and pretty much froze my fingers off but it was worth it That s all I m gonna say cause it s way too early to do a full on review
