The Summer of Us Reviews
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 girls and the 2 guys, while the other two girls are trying to figure out if they like each other. These 2 girls were easily the best part and most developed. Their relationship is adorable and the feminist side comme ...more
Enjoyed this travelogue, YA romance friendship story a lot,
*I got this book for review from the publisher for my honest thoughts*
This book was the prefect book to start my summer reading adventures. This book follows a group of five friends on a epic road trip in europe the summer before the venture off to college. I loved the duel POV and how focused on friendship this book was. Also the lead girls were such different type of characters it made the book even more compelling and enjoyable. I def saw myself in the character of aubury. I loved the LGBTQ r ...more
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 BOOKS WHO AM I??
AHHHH. AHHHHH. CUTENESS. OVERLOADDDD.
It’s nearing summer here in the UK AND OH MY GOSH, this book? If summer was a book, IT WOULD BE THIS. I mean, I guessed by the title “The Summer of Us” but it literally ha ...more
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 much for the romances themselves, because they hinged on not being honest with each other about feelings, and I'm always like 'dude, just let him down easy, so you can all be happier in the long run!'
What I was most i ...more
*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! I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even more than I expected! I practically flew through it, despite working most of yesterday. It was cute, and sweet and heartbreaking all at the same time. Any good contemporary I feel ...more
This is the kind of book that teenage me would have loved. And as a result adult, me really enjoyed it.
It was fun to read this light adventurous story that takes us through some o the most beautiful places in Europe. The author does a wonderful job of describing the intimate dynamics of changing friendships, and how coming of age and travel can not only help you find yourself but transform you into a new independent person.
This book made me feel so nostalgic for travel, old friendships and that ...more
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 embarking on a two-week trip to Europe, with their friends Jonah (Aubrey's boyfriend), Clara (Rae's secret crush), and Gabe (who Aubrey kissed three weeks earlier). Aubrey and Rae are both having a pre-college freakout ...more
