Airports, Exes, and Other Things I'm Over Reviews
I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.
Sari has things going on for her. She just went to an AMAZING concert with her best friend, and then she is going to Florida with her boyfriend for spring break. No parentals, sunshine instead of Manhattan's dreary weather, and sometimes hanging out with her grandma, who she was staying with.
But when Sari shows up to the "party of the year" where her boyfriend is, she finds Zev kissing his ex-girlfriend. Now, thing ...more
Overall, a quick cute summer read! I really liked Zev as a character. He was constantly doing cute things for Sari even though she kept getting mad at him. The cheating scandal with Zev was very predictable and was mostly made to be the issue of the book because of the way Sari reacted, but I don't blame her for not trusting him for a while after. As for Fitz and Dylan, I loved how they were super nice and they added another element to the story. And Trina was such a good friend to Sari! At time ...more
4.5 stars really. This was one that I really ended up liking a lot! It honestly felt really realistic in how the characters behaved for the most part. It had a lot of humorous bits, and pop culture references, which I really enjoy. For example, it even mentioned Goodreads! I picked it up, and couldn't seem to put it down, it kept me turning pages (digital pages on my Nook, so a lot of tapping on the side of the screen). I like the way the "new/rebound" romance actually ended up going, it seemed ...more

The basis for the book is about heartbreak and stress, but the random bits of humor and lightheartedness were what really made me like the story. It's hard to get too down when your bestie turns your evil ex into Voldemort in your phone because you don't want his name mentioned. Or when said evil ex and your mom have a text relationship with inside jokes you know nothing about. I am a huge fa ...more
An ARC was provided by Macmillan in exchange for an honest review.
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Romances that begin at airports can be great fiction fodder. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is one of my favorite examples of this trope. Unfortunately, where that YA fave succeeds, Airports, Exes, and Other Things I'm Over falters.
From the start, I expected Sari and Fitz to have more of a flirtation and an almost-relationship at the very least. Instead, Sari's romantic ...more

I’d like to preface this review by stating that I am a sucker for stories set in airports…it’s my #1 setting of preference for cute rom-coms & so naturally, seeing a book with airport in the title meant I wa ...more
Actual rating: 3.5 stars.
I received an ARC via work with no obligation to leave a personal review.
I really enjoyed this! I had been in a slump for reading for work, and I don't know what it is about Swoon Reads titles, but they just suck me in, in a great way, even though the writing is not always as polished as in other books. I must say, though, that I like Shani Petroff's writing enough and am definitely interested in reading her other books! (I have My New Crush Gave to Me but just haven't g ...more

My favorite thing about Young Adult Contemporary books is how relatable they are! Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over is a quick, cute read that threw me back to young high school love and how shattered the smallest thing could make me feel then.
Shani Petroff is no stranger to authoring well-loved YA Contemporaries — her lineup includes My New Crush Gave to Me and Romeo & What’s Her Name. Her writing is smooth, easy, and enjoyable. Personally, ...more
