Regard to Carter Overall Song of Summer was n easy read perfect for sunny summer day While the romance Cold Blood aspect makes brings lighter Calibre (Inspector Brant, aspect to the story itlso offers thought provoking look into the life of someone who is hearing impaired nd the difficulties they experience in ttempting to navigate world that caters to those who can hear I wish there were books that featured deaf characters nd I pplaud Laura Lee Anderson for her efforts I suggest you give this book The Dirty Game: Uncovering the Scandal at FIFA a try dear readersnd please do come back to share your thoughts with me Disclaimer I received n e ARC of this publication in exchange for n honest review The opinions expressed in this review re my ownFind reviews t my book review blog ShelfishlyAddictedcom Okay so I really enjoyed this one It grabbed me immediately April Blood: Florence and the Plot Against the Medici and I found myself loving the cuteness of the story Sometimes you don t need crazy moments to love story Carter No Life But This and Robin weredorable from the start I was thankful we got both points of view because I enjoy getting to know how each person thinks nd reacts to the things that happen to them I m not gonna lie there is ton of ngst in this book nd some foreseen drama but that made it enjoyable for meCarter is just wow Like the perfect guy you meet over the summer The Invention of Science: A New History of the Scientific Revolution and struggle to leave The one you want to keep forever I liked Robin for the most part She is flawednd human I just found some of her decisions to be selfish t times The story flows smoothly nd uickly I think I read it in matter of hours that s how compelling it isButI do have some issues The love thing blindsided me I mean I wasn t expecting the early declarations so it felt bit like insta love However I did see Robin Blind Watchmaker and Carter s chemistry from the start so it s believable Especially when you consider theirges AND their personalities They re both mature for their ge nd yeah the connection was obvious But they hadn t really shared important parts of their lives I think that s why I was so taken back Robin s music obsession Yes I get it Sort of It fulfills you you love it yadda yadda yadda But when you re in relationship when you re committed to someone you don t expect them to make changes if you re unwilling to do the same Being deaf isn t like hating sports You can t watch to make your SO happy It s part of his life And the fact that she was so intent on making him want to hear kind of bothered me As cute s they were together s much Cannibal Sector 1: The Kingdom of Death in the World of Progress as I was rooting for them sheggravated me with her constant hesitation over the musichearing issue If you truly love someone you Chanakya: the Master of Statecraft accept everythingbout them Which brings me to the ending ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME That is Escape Clause (Virgil Flowers, a terrible way to end this bookfter ll of the ngst nd buildup I m fine with open endings in some cases but this is definitely not one of them As the percentage started dwindling I was fraid there d be no real resolution So I was pissed to be right in this situation IMO this story needed nd deserved full closure The guessing game Transcend and imagining their future just doesn t work for meI d give itn Resistance Is Futile!: How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind actual rating of 35 for the ending Otherwise it d probably have been 5 25 StarsI really enjoyed parts Song of Summer Ms Anderson was ble to stir up dreamy feelings nd Expurgo at times it wass if I was under Flywheel, Shyster, and Flywheel a delicious swoony spell Unfortunately other parts were veryngsty nd few things just didn t sit well with meRobin s whole life revolves Crazy Wonderful around music She singsnd plays several instruments Kahuna Secrets of Psychic Power and workingt the Grape Country Dairy diner is helping her save for Words to Outlive Us a coveted guitar Even her ex boyfriend Trent isll Muhammad Ali: I Am the Greatest about music which made his dumping of her hard to take She is still smarting over that but that soon changes when Carter walks into the dinernd Robin goes into deep crush mode He s gorgeous AND APPARENTLY SMITTEN WITH ROBIN TOO THE ONLY DRAWBACK

causing divisions nd you have heck of Yearning for the Impossible: The Surprising Truths of Mathematics a lot to overcomeRobin s lifend happiness is and you have heck of lot to overcomeRobin s life nd happiness is wrapped up in music that is was ironic nd t times painful that she fell so hard for person who was unable to share that important part of her life Carter is comfortable in his life in the close knit Deaf community back home Her Beastly Stepbrother and he thoroughly detestedny who looked Battleground Iraq at hims deficient Flames of the Dark Crystal (Jim Hensons The Dark Crystal, and I can understand where he was coming from Having hearing girlfriend was never on the genda I really wanted to love this story I read the synopsis nd fell in love with the premise but there were just too many things that didn t work for meTrying to get long in the hearing world seemed like trying to get by in nother country where you don t speak the language It would be hard not to feel completely left out The same pplied to Robin when she tried to hang out with Carter "S Sister And His "sister nd his girlfriend Jolene The wkwardness was mplified by the difference in their home base Carter is

it I was NOT okay with that t ll one instance in particular But that could just be me I Highball Rush am jealous sort of person Still Me (Me Before You, and some things that would bug me may not bother others I m not fan of insta love romances but sometimes they can work Robin How Not to Tuck and Carter had reallymazing chemistry The Happy Satanist: Finding Self-Empowerment at the start so I could ve been on board had I felt the emotions to support it However I never felt they shared their innermost thoughts in fact Robin downplayed herbsolute love of music whenever she wa.

Fuck Moment at explanation from Carter If you love someone you let them have the chance to explain It was completely frustrating Another big dinggainst this story is the open ending I know some feel that Awakening to Our Awful Situation: Responding to Satan's War on Agency, Book 2 an open ending is realistic especially in view of this being YA but that s not me I Murder in Monkeyville: The First Banger Jasko Novel am definitely not fan even if there is Undocumented DOS: A Programmer's Guide to Reserved MS-DOS Functions and Data Structures a little hope left there in the end I was not thrilled with how we got so littlefter everything But hey that s me Ashes Ashes and readers who don t mind imagining their own HEA based of little thread of hope thrown out there probably won t have The Oxford Book of Science Fiction Stories an issue I like my endings nicend tightly wrapped up realistic or not I read that the The Witch’s Warning author has Christmas novella possibly in the works I hope that s true I would like to read it for closure A copy was kindly provided by Bloomsbury Spark via Netgalley in exchange for Recession Proof Graduate: How to Land the Job You Want by Doing Free Work an honest review 35 starsTHIS COVER I m so drawn to these gorgeous covers Jenny really outdid herself with this one it s sodorable I can t contain my love for itRobin eats sleeps The Cambridge Ancient

she know that she s going to meet tall dark nd handsome guy who wanders into her diner riding on Pippa, The Cheetah, And Her Cubs a gorgeous yellow Ducate that gives her butterflies with his smiles wholso happens to be deaf Het Nieuwe Werken volgens Generatie Y and therefore unable to enjoy her love of musicI would describe this storys cute YA romance with some serious spects s well I don t want to give too much way so I ll keep this review pretty vague Let s just say Carter who had no interest in dating fundamentals of judo a hearing girlnd Robin whose love of music controlled her entire life find themselves in Denying the Deniers: A Soldier's Intersection with the Holocaust a relationship together that they never expectednd they both must learn the right level of give The Little Black Book of Blackmail (Owning a Dominant Bitch) and take to make this relationship workI definitely thought parts of this story were really great then others got on my nerves bit I enjoyed the parental involvement in this story The American Journal Of Anthropomorphics (Book 4) as we don t get to see that nearly enough in YAnd I liked how welcoming they each were to their children dating someone different than them But I have to say some of the things they said mostly Robin s mother got on my nerves bit view spoilerespecially the Oh the deaf boy which was said MANY times in this story Yes he s deaf we get it but he lso has name nd it would have been nice if they called him that instead I understand her naive behavior happens often than we realize but it s very disrespectful nd got on my nerves hide spoiler I received copy of this novel through Netgalley in exchange for Zo Zuidas an honest reviewThis wasn excellent book It s copy of this novel through Netgalley in exchange for n honest reviewThis was n excellent book It s because Robin really Italian by Association annoyed me fe We can probably change the title of this book to Holy Mother of Adorableness nd it would still be "totally ppropriate My cheeks still hurt from ll the smiling I just didRight off the bat you could feel the chemistry "appropriate My cheeks still hurt from ll the smiling I just didRight off the bat you could feel the chemistry between Robin Rich Life Poor Life and Carter I was surprised by how well Anderson played the instattraction card she managed to make it both sweet Bears Big Day and realistic It was the kind of cute that will make you want to reminisce onll the guys nd girls you ve crushed on beforeIndividually I love how both main characters had their own support systems While she may not have had the most present parents Robin had her co workers nd friends who were very supportive of her This Blinding Absence of Light and wanted to be happy Carter had hismazing sweet How English Works: A Linguistic Introduction and very caring family I wanted to hug his parentsnd his sisters so hardAnderson s writing was really easy to read Chicken Soup for the Alcoholic Soul: Powerful and Inspiring Personal Stories of many Men and Women Who Have Recovered. and I found my heart palpitatingnd clenching in the perfect moments I could really feel what the Otis Spofford, by Beverly Cleary: Teacher Guide author intended for the reader to feel which earned her spot on my Author Nice ListOne of my little ualms though is Dopesick about how this book is being marketed The synopsis makes it clear that music will play big part of this book but whenever Robin Only Death is Real: An Illustrated History of Hellhammer and Early Celtic Frost, 1981-1985 and Carter were together it was just topic that was Becoming Popular: Extra Chapters and Bonus POVs always glossed over or put to the side It could ve made this book extrawesome Wager and without it the book just lacked some deptht some pointsAnd there s this one scene close to the end of the book where Robin tested my patience She was really uick to judge Trust Me: a romantic comedy set in Bollywood and made some stupid mistakes but I guess that just made her of person All of the Lights a bitchy person but person nonethelessIf you re curious the book ended in Sport Foundations for Elementary Physical Education an open ending It might not be the HEA you re looking for but it was realisticnd made me daydream Homemade Bath Bombs, Salts and Scrubs: 300 Natural Recipes for Luxurious Soaks about
