Love Songs & Other Lies Reviews
I have a thing for contemporaries with music in them. I just always pick them up, and the don’t usually disappoint. I liked Long Songs & Other Lies, but I know it’s going to be a forgettable read for me. While I did really enjoy the Then-Now format and the history it brought to the story, and I always love a good RomCom contemporary, I just didn’t get invested in this. The main problem I had with the story is that my interest started waning and just kept fading the more I read. By the end of ...more
Love, music, heartbreak and reality tv come together in this absorbing story. Alternating between the past and present of both members of a fractured relationship, Love Songs & Other Lies is a sweet, funny and, at times, sad story about first love.
A review will be coming soon!
COME FOR THE CUTE PREMISE, STAY FOR THE EMOTIONAL DEPTH
When I first read the blurb on this book I really wanted to read it since it has all of the elements I adore in a good YA romance plus MUSIC. The first chapter didn’t do much for me, but by the time it split into the viewpoint of each character, I was hooked. The writing is just so bright and spot on. I could really believe in this boy and girl. The story flips back and forth between the past and current events, with Vee and Cam each talking ...more
I absolutely adore this book! Definitely one of my new favorite contemporaries. I loved the dual perspective and how it went back and forth from present to past.
I really enjoyed reading a story where the characters weren't perfect. They had their faults, but it helped to make them seem more real.
I received an E-ARC of this book which will be released 4/2018.
This book was great! I loved the two main characters and how they had their flaws...it made them much more endearing. I really enjoyed that it was a battle of the bands reality show and that they were on tour. I felt a whole range of emotions reading this book. I laughed, cried, got angry, cheered the characters on, etc. If you like swoon worthy, contemporary romance, I really think you'll love this book! I definitely recommend it.
This book was all kinds of adorable! I loved the dual POV between Vee and Cam, and I loved the dual timelines that played throughout. Pennington did a wonderful job of having convincing and correlating character arcs separated by 2 years and 2 main characters.
I highly recommend to fans of boy bands, redemption arcs, and the magic of reality TV. Guaranteed to make your heart feel warm and fuzzy!
I've fallen in love with Cam. Yep. You can't have him! :D
This was a beautifully written, romantic, and poignant second-chances love story, and it grabbed my heart from the start! The story unfolded in a way that drew me in and wouldn't let go well in to the night. Chapters alternated from past to present, and it felt like two stories in one. I loved it! Cam and Vee stole my heart, and I can't wait to read more of their story! <3 Please tell me there's a sequel!!!!
(I was given an ARC for my ho ...more
