    Believe me, I m even shocked and distraught than you are.I like Kasie West Her stories, although always somewhat clich d, are charming and, quite frankly, I never thought I would one day feel completely indifferent about one of her books.Well, we do need to make something clear first this isn t bad In fact, it can be sweet and adorable at times.But it s so full of high school tropes They re everywhere and all the time Ubiquitous, truly.Boy drama Check Boy related misunderstandings Check Girl torn over two boys, arguably three Check Miss bitchy popular gal trying to ruin the heroine s love life Check Boy related best friend drama Check.And it goes on and on and on.I guess you could say that I am not the right person to be reading this book If I hadn t read hundreds and hundreds of YA novels with similar themes, I may have given this a three star rating But not .Because although it s fast paced and charming at times, it never really is original It s very clich d, and normally I don t mind it that much from Kasie West, since her humour usually manages to reduce my dislike of the clich d parts, but this time it just didn t work.Maybe my reaction to P.S I Like You would have been different if Cade had been loveable and it hadn t taken me 3 4 of the story to finally consider him a sweetheart His bad boy act from the point of view of Lily annoyed me, as I hold no love for bullies and fakers.Also, it s all about the romance Lily s best friend only exists for Lily herself The truth is, I don t even remember her name Strangely, I remember every name mentioned in this story but hers If she was present, it was only to help Lily figure out some things I don t even know much about her In Kasie West s previous novels for instance, The Distance Between Us friendship had another meaning A truer one.I m glad for Lily s big, loud family They made me smile And that darling rabbit, much love directed its way The humour could also be diverting, though there wasn t quite enough of it.I was pondering giving this a higher rating, as I know many of you will wish to throw your forks at me, but I can t pretend I m very disappointed in P.S I Like You The way I see it, even the title lacks originality.But I haven t lost faith in Kasie West I believe this isn t the end of our reader author relationship.Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

    AVAILABLE NOW If only there was a way to transport letters faster, through some sort of electronic device that codes messages and sends them through the air But that s just crazy talk Several times during my read I asked myself, what would it take for P.S I Like You to reach a 4.5 5 stars and in all honesty, I don t think it could, no matter how cute some parts were Now, I m all for rating a novel according to its genre, but where am I supposed to put Kasie West books In YA contemporary Sure Then they can t and will never compete with the raw honesty and the avalanche of feelings I associate with some of my favorites Please Ignore Vera Dietz, On the Jellicoe Road, Raw Blue, to name a few Truth is, P.S I Like You put a smile on my face and was well, cute, but I cannot hide how unmemorable it is Fact 1 I ve read all of Kasie West s books and I ve never come across a female lead like Lily, which is to say, the typical quirky girl with weird self made clothes and notebooks The tomboy, the popular girl, absolutely Not the artist Fact 2 Yet I ve read my fair share of YA novels, and Lily doesn t bring anything different in the sea of female leads She likes music, makes false assumptions about people, is convinced that no guy would take an interest in her, fantasizes about this crooked smiling, earbuds addict guy with cool hair, has one and only friend because people suck or something When it comes to analyze someone else s actions, she s blind, but aren t we all I mean, TEENAGER 101, anyone I don t necessarily complain upfront about stereotypes, because sometimes they can be twisted to add something to a story Let s just say that it wasn t the case in P.S I Like You Fact 3 Lily s family is what I like the most about her, but it may be because it is so relatable to me A four children family and general messiness It was my playground Anyone who grew up in a family of six and who looks blank when confronted with the concept of a one child room will easily understand what she goes through Her family is weird, crazy, annoying, roll eyes worthy, yet so lovable, with a special award for Bugs Rabbit XDAs for the love interest, given the fact that it s supposed to be a surprise come on, I knew who it was on page 6 on that later , I won t say his name but he was pretty great, if completely forgettable I know, I know, I am harsh, but really no matter how much he made me smile, mark my words I will have forgotten his name next week I just know it Look, I m all for pen pals and stuff, as it s a plot which usually really works for me Yet if I accept having doubts, I still ask for the story to keep its mystery, at least a little Take Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, for example I loved that I did not know if I was right until the very end P.S I Like You, though I knew who her mysterious penpal was almost instantly, and every time a new event occurred, the threads were always so thick that I felt like I was only waiting for what I already knew to happen Granted, the story mostly revolved around Lily s romance with , and romance novels are always all kinds of predictable Yet it annoyed me because given that I knew who it was, I couldn t help but feel the urge to skim through all the useless scenes with other boys Just, nope I didn t care, and it awfully felt like filler for me As for the romance, I cannot deny that Lily and shared a great chemistry and that I rooted for them to get together from the beginning They made me smile, especially when they were writing to each other But I cannot deny either that something was missing, or perhaps I m finally too old for this kind of cute, kissing book Maybe See, it was adorable to see them getting to know each other, but it lacked some tension and character development in my opinion.Finally, the music part felt flat and contrived, and rather useless It s as if YA contemporaries had to incorporate some kind of artistic vibes, without needing them to add something to the story I m quite tired of this It s no surprise that Kasie West s writing is addictive and smile inducing Her books, how flawed they can be, always manage to make me happy, even if my feelings stay superficial However, if I really appreciated the letters, the dialogues didn t flow as well Although they were often funny, they sounded fake and I forced myself to adapt and ignore the stiffness or rather, the fakeness Yes that s a thing All in all a cute but unmemorable novel I would still recommend it to anyone who needs to smile For of my reviews, please visit

    Can I ask a serious question How does Kasie West do it how does she manage to make me love each story she writes than the last I torture myself by reading them as soon as I can get my hands on them, which in turn makes me just have to wait even longer for the next, but I seriously can t even help myself This book isn t out until July of 2016 yes I said July 2016 That s half a year away, and still, I didn t even care As soon as it was loaded onto my kindle app, I pull this beauty up and dove in I mean I love a lot of books I just do I m an emotional reader so I tend to click with stories where I can relate to the characters and Kasie just manages to write the most realistic and fun characters around Lily doesn t fit in with the popular kids at school she s a bit quirky and definitely unique, focused less on the labels attached to her clothing and on her creative side and trying to get her words to form a song or two She s a self taught guitar player who dreams of writing music that means something to people, but in the meantime, she struggles through Chemistry and dealing with her overwhelming family After writing one of her favorite bands lyrics on her desk in chemistry, she comes to class the next day only to find out that someone else in the school actually has good taste in music and has left her a message One thing leads to another and she s suddenly got a pen pal in class that she ends up sharing with than she does her best friend As days and weeks pass, Lily finds herself wondering just who she might be clicking with It s not hard to figure out you guys I mean there are quite a few indicators, and the summary isn t stealthy about it at all but who the heck cares it was so fun Cade and Lily hate each other Like HATE HATE each other Their hate even came between Lily s best friend s relationship with Cade a couple years ago and culminated with a hated nickname he happened to give her that just happened to stick through the years.Cade is the complete opposite from Lily if everything is to be believed perfect family, perfect house, perfect friends but sometimes it s easy to put up a front and as Lily learns who she s connecting with via words and shared secrets she quickly finds that maybe Cade isn t really the self assured guy he shows everyone I love Love Hate relationship stories the way the characters build that thin line that s always present and gah it s just perfection So after seeing the author name, the summary was next to catch my attention Kasie always does an amazing job of building the connection between characters before having them hook up in any way, and she does that really wonderfully here again I absolutely love that these two are complete opposites in Every Single Way Only to have them come together over words and thoughts it was just lovely I have to mention Lily s family too, because they are a huge part of this story no matter how messy or crazy or insane things were, it was so fun to see the traditions, to see them talk things out, to see them help each other real live, wonderful families are so rare in YA that getting to see one is like Halley s Comet they only appear once every 75 years or so okay so I exaggerate a bit It s entirely possible that this might just be my favorite Kasie West book after reading, but then, I ll probably change my mind once I reread her others Is it okay to just say that I love them all equally and want to drown in her stories and words forever If this one isn t on your radar, put it there now You re going to absolutely love it when it arrives in 7 months OMG I M SO SORRY FOR TEASING I promise I ll be waiting here with you because I ll definitely be rereading this one as soon as it hits shelves P.S I like you Kasie but you already know that

    This seems to be most of my friends least favourite Kasie West book, but it s totally my favourite This storyline just worked for me.

    I bought this one for my daughter target audience, btw at a book fair and then decided to check it out for myself Because I m nosey.It was cute.The gist is that there s this artsy girl who modifies thrift shop clothes, listens to indie rock bands, and doesn t realize that she s pretty And like all artsy girls, she has a notebook filled with dreams, doodles, and lyrics she desperately wants to turn into a meaningful song which she carries around with her all the time She s unflinchingly loyal to her one friend in the world because her artsiness and non mainstream clothes keep all the normies from liking her.Then you have the popular jock boy who hides his secret pain with humor that is willfully misunderstood by the angsty indie girl and her guitar.True puppy love ensues.And maybe it sounds like I didn t like this cliche riddled story, but that s not true Started it last night, finished it this afternoon This was exactly what was advertised and I quite enjoyed it Formulas aren t necessarily a bad thing, especially when those formulas make you smile This was the kind of adorable teenage fluff that I would gladly shove at my kids And I definitely wouldn t mind grabbing of this author s stuff for myself in the future, either.

    2.5 Honestly this book just did nothing for me I didn t hate it, but I didn t love it It just was I guess It s hard to describe my feelings toward it because I really don t have any feelings for it I just think this wasn t the Kasie West book for me Oh well I definitely want to try other books by her, especially her upcoming release.

    4.5 Stars So you think I m hot Doesn t every girl It surprised me when his cheeks turned a light shade of pink I wasn t sure why that embarrassed him in any way I was positive he already knew it He ran one hand through his hair Then he said, almost too quiet for me to hear, You re not every girl I find it just so strange that I had never read a Kasie West novel until late last summer Seriously It s so hard to find YA contemporary authors that make such a large range of people happy, that continue to produce cute, funny, witty, and memorable stories, and that do it well I had personally never heard of her, and then one of my best friends is like are you kidding Do you live under a rock READ HER NOW So I picked up The Distance Between Us Still my favorite Kasie West yet and fell HARD Who could resist Xander Who I ask WHO If only there was a way to transport letters faster, through some sort of electronic device that codes messages and sends them through the air But that s just crazy talk So here I am almost one year later, eagerly awaiting her next release As soon as I ran out of her books it was very quick lol I was desperate for I can t say she s my absolute favorite author that would be a lie but what I can say is that she is an author I have come to admire and that I always look forward to reading For instance, the minute this book was announced, I immediately had it on my TBR and let all of my friends know And you can just tell how obsessed and loyal all her fans are It s so crazy And the thing is I truly truly had never heard of her But now I have, and what I ve read is nothing but impressive So here we are, sitting and anticipating her next release A cute little story about two students who both feel like they are missing something in their lives and seem to find and express themselves through the words of their favorite bands What was meant to be just a release one day in chemistry for Lily becomes an instant connection between two people who are desperate for someone to hear them It begins as a game, a playful flirtation that happens by chance in a boring chemistry class But, as the days go by, it blossoms into something they look forward to and think about every single night long after the lights have gone out.and turns into something far deeper than they ever thought possible I was both equally in love with this book and disappointed by it And I know that sounds so crazy, what with my extremely high rating, but I am so torn on this one On the one hand, I ve seen this done before and it was done WAY better I m sorry, I adore Kasie West, but that other novel is one of my favorites of all time and it had way , I don t know, heart I m not saying this wasn t done well but on the pen pal aspect, I felt myself strangely detached and it wasn t until I was done that I realized I wanted that same intensity I felt from my favorite and this didn t get one tenth as deep as that So, this aspect was an extreme let down for me And I wasn t even trying to compare Words brought us together though they almost kept us apart.You trusted me with your secrets and then you stole my heart And I m sorry to be focusing on the negatives first, but I d rather be salty and then sweet I find it leaves a better taste in my mouth to end on a happy, high note I had two other problems and one bothered me than the other, if I m being honest I was a tad bored in the middle because the pen pal trope got a little bit stale, in my opinion That s a small part of my disappointment But, no, my largest peeve, and I m sad to say this, was the main character I know, I know I almost NEVER dislike the main girl, but for some reason I have been increasingly pickier with my female leads Lily was I liked Lily at first, ya know But then I saw how judgmental she was ON PURPOSE She wasn t simply just a snarky teenager, she made herself be that way And I didn t realize until the final page just how deeply her attitude had affected me I adored how much she loved her family it s what my friend and I loved most about her But then I saw how she reacted to said pen pal it wasn t enough that this person was a kindred spirit It wasn t enough that this person was miserable on the inside It didn t matter All she saw was what she wanted to see, and even when said person proved they broke the mold of her pretentious expectations, she still pushed, fought, and clawed to keep things where it kept her comfortable So she wanted to pigeonhole someone but was indignant when she thought that others were doing the same to her This really just grr This did NOT please me And I told my friend this That I just couldn t get past her bias And my friend Anna said Yeah, I get that But teenagers are like that They can be judgmental I m used to it And it really bothered me long after Was I being too harsh And I finally decidedno, no I wasn t I love books where the heroines are unreasonable I just couldn t get past this one for whatever reason She bothered me, plain and simple and it was probably the largest reason I couldn t fall head over heels for this story But enough of that I have so many positive things to say about this Like, how about the fact that after 50 60% I Could Not Put This Down It became everything I ve expected of a Kasie West novel and made me so badly wish that I d had that connection from the very beginning Imagine it like this Part one Cute introduction where the plot is set into play and we get to know all our quirky charactersPart two Pen pal plot drags a little, I begin to lose a little interest in Lily s attitude and storyPart three TOTAL transformation where the plot finally expands and we truly connect to the pen pal and our main character wellyou know what I mean This part was 100% a 5 Things ACTUALLY happen and it feels like an actual story with a flow and a final destination And let me be clear Had this whole story been like that last 40%, this would have been my absolute favorite Kasie West book Probably I just I can t explain how a complete lack of connection, focus, and butterflies turned into IMMEDIATE butterflies that are so forceful and so out of nowhere that I couldn t breathe I m not kidding It s like okay, it s like the Beast roller coaster at King s Island LOVE LOVE LOVE It s a great coaster okay, but then you get to the final third of the coaster and there are all these wooden tunnels that make you go underground ish and they are pitch black and you feel as if you are going 1000 times faster and, on the first turn into the first tunnel, your head whips to left so fast you can t handle it but you love it and it takes you completely by surprise as you laugh and scream and hold onto your partner for dear life And, by the end, you have the biggest smile on your face and can t contain the good feels and your extreme excitement It was just like that Literally Feels out of nowhere And I know I haven t mentioned my main man WHO I AM OBSESSED WITH but I don t think I can because it s a spoileris it, though Is it not obvious Okay, anyway, I can t say his name, and I can t really say much about him or it will make it even obvious, and I can t particularly claim he s above Xander maybe right below , but just know that I absolutely loved him He was an extremely kind, caring, and butterfly inducing cutie Misunderstood, if you will But stop me now, I m sure I ve said too much Whatever, sorry, it s just so damn hard for me not to say his name and gush and cry like a fangirl professing her love and ah I am just a goner But, alas, I guess you ll have to meet him for yourself, unfortunately So, anyway, it may seem like I was mostly down on this bookbut that s not the case I just wanted people to understand why this isn t a 5 when I ve rated her others that way So many stories win me over in the end a million jump into my mind and become a forever favorite and a five star But when I struggled to love this story from the beginning and found that it paled in comparison to my lovelies, The Fill In Boyfriend and The Distance Between Us, I can t objectively and fairly give a five for this story I finished, was smiling so big it s unreal, proclaimed my love of it to my friend, and said I had to give it a five but then I slept on it and realized that it didn t feel right to give it that rating, that it wasn t a forever favorite, and it it had too many issues I couldn t get over So, I decided to rate highlybecause the amount of giddiness and happiness I felt for the final third of the story can t be overlooked but it didn t surpass her other novels and needed to be rated thusly This rating, while a little disheartening to me for KW, feels right and truly says what I want it to say While this book had it s issues, it was fun, addicting, butterfly inducing, and brought the largest smile to my face P.S is a good time, if not a little forgettable, and it will take you away from reality and make you feel better about yourself It will make you happier, if only for the length of the novel And, really, what else can you ask for ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review For of my reviews, please visit Alright guysI m guna be frank My favorite thing about this book AGHHHHH MY BOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.he winssssss Okay Phew Glad I got that out of the way The boy was everything He was the pitter patter in my heart The butterflies in my belly He was the smile on my face and the driving force behind my high rating for this book Because, frankly This wasn t my favorite Kasie West novel And I couldn t quite put my finger on why until this morning Spoiler alert I hated the MC Sorry not sorry.RTC.

    4.5 5 starsThis book contains my least favorite trope but it s done SO WELL and with just enough to counter balance it that I loved it Was not expecting that I really REALLY REALLY liked this book for a lot of reasons The characters were fantastic, especially the main character I loved the romance in this book because it wasn t insta love It took a bit to develop and come about, and even then it still took a little longer LOVE ME SOME kind of SLOW BURN The whole plot and premise are so fun and really intriguing from the start, it s the perfect mix of a lot of different elements.The things I didn t like were the pacing of the ending everything seemed to move a little too fast and I would ve loved a touch development for the side characters, though it s hard to do in a book this short It s not to say that they weren t well developed, but I think it could ve been done a little .Overall a SUPER fun contemporary that I really enjoyed and read in essentially one plane ride I could NOT put it down
