    I guess Katie and I have formed our own rainbow alliance. It feels like she’s something I’ve always wanted but didn’t know I wanted until I got it: a partner in crime. I don’t want to write a single word. I will, but it pains me to. You see, I thought David Levithan and I had this connection. We used to bond fairly well and just… understand one another. He amazed me.Now I’m not so sure anymore. I don’t know Nina LaCour—haven’t...

    Book #6 for the #BookTubeAThon done!This book was a fun, quick read, but was way too unrealistic for me to properly love it.

    "I'm ready to lose myself,but I'm not ready to lose you.I'm ready to find myself,But I'm not ready for you to know what I find."This was my first book by Nina LaCour and my fifth by David Levithan (and compared to the other 4 books I've read I liked this one best).You Know Me Well is one of those books that you can easily read in one sitting. It has a great pace, relatable characters and never once gets boring. It's also incredibly romantic.I hav...

    *2.5/5I'm so sad to be writing that I gave this book 2.5 stars. This was my most anticipated release of 2016, by two authors I adore. It is #ownvoices and stuffed to the brim with queer characters and it should have been perfect for me. But it wasn't.Stuff I loved: -How Pride was written. Every scene that was more focused on Pride than the characters themselves was well done and fun to read. -The attention to queer spaces as safe spaces, and the ...

    This was good, just not shout-it-from-the-rooftops good.

    I’m afraid to say but this book has finally made me realize that Mr. David Levithan and I should officially call it quits. Like I said, his writing is always thoughtful and beautiful but there’s just always something in his stories that makes a premise with great potential become quite too unrealistic. I don’t know how much of the story is on Ms. Nina La Cour but I’m still giving her a chance with Hold Still. I’m not discouraging people...

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ Is this the beginning of the end? Am I officially getting too old for this shit???? Say it ain’t so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I refuse to believe that could be the case. Instead I’m going to blame the “meh” factor on (1) I’m in a horrible book slump and not really loving much of anything; (2) NetGalley is all-knowing and I should listen to them when they deny me a request instead of i...

    I would like to thank Net Galley, St. Martin’s Press, and the authors for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.Why didn’t they have books like this when I needed them decades ago? You Know Me Well is a YA novel exploring the angst of young LGBT love. Back in the day there was nothing, I repeat nothing, nada, zilch out there for us who were realizing we were different and not understanding why we were “not normal....

    Le doy un 4 por el buen rato. Me ha hecho feliz, me he sentido identificada con algunos de los sentimientos de los personajes y me ha sacado una lagrimilla. Teniendo en cuenta que no buscaba otra cosa en este libro me doy por satisfecha.Una lectura amena, personajes con carácter y fáciles de querer (Kate y Violet ❤) y dos historias que demuestran que hay muchos tipos de amor y que todos son valiosos y hermosos. Puede que no sea una de esas no...

    the following is the slightly edit version of an email i sent to the kind publicist that sent me an e-copy of this book:DUUUUUUUUUUDDEEEEEE THIS BOOK. THIS FREAKING BOOK. I'M JUST, I CAN'T DEAL. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL? I LOVE IT SO MUCH? LIKE I HAD A COUPLE LITTLE ISSUES AND THEN BY THE END THEY WERE RESOLVED AND NOW I'M JUST HEAD OVER HEELS AND IN PAIN. I'M IN PAIN BECAUSE THERE IS NO MORE OF THIS BOOK. BECAUSE I HAVE JUST SPENT THE LAST FEW HOURS OF...

    Hice una review bastante intensa y larga hace unos días, pero viendo que Goodreads decidió quedarse pillado en el peor momento (justo cuando le das a 'guardar', pero no lo guarda), os dejo con la reseña en vídeo que hice en mi canal de YouTube donde obviamente explico las cosas de manera más directa y espero que con un poco más de humor que por aquí: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJmd5...

    I'm starting to think that David Levithan is my spirit animal. With every one of his books, he just gets me, you know?Despite the fact that they sit next to each other in their high school calculus class, Mark and Katie have barely spoken to each other. So their official "meet cute" encounter is unlike any you've heard ofKate is hiding in a gay bar at the start of San Francisco's Pride Festival, running away before she gets the chance to meet the...

    I don't really know how to rate this because right now it's 2:30AM and I'm feeling a lot of things, so I'm just going to keep it at 4 stars for now. *EDIT* it's the next morning, at some point in the night when I was mostly asleep I switched to 5 stars, now I'm going back to 4 be officially saying 4.3..I think. A little more than 4 but not 5. Maybe 4.5? I hate star ratings. Anyway...I don't think I can write a completely sufficient review of thi...

    Let me just start by saying that I haven’t read a single book by either one of these authors. This is my first one by them, and I’m pleasantly surprised. This book is specifically lgbt-centered – most of the main cast is queer. You know how in YA contemporary books, the focus is on cute fluff and all that, but with a very straight main character and very straight supporting characters and maybe, like, one token gay kid? This isn’t like th...

    Received from: St. Martin's GriffinReceived Via: NetGalley.com THE REVIEWWhy this book?This seemed like a book for meWhat I thoughtI loved this book!! Mark and Katie had a beautiful friendship in just a matter of days. They found eachother just when they needed one another. I felt so many emotions reading this book. I was happy, sad and even frustrated. Katie is the type of girl who runs away from anything good that happens to her, because she do...

    I just want to thank St. Martin's Press for sending me a finished copy of this book to read and review! I absolutely LOVED this book so I am SO happy to have a copy I can display!It also gave me an excuse to pick this up right away when I might not have for a while.It is not every day that a contemporary YA gets put into my favourites shelf. It is actually my least read genre and now all I can wonder is why? Why don't I read more YA contemporary?...

    Hay veces en las que lees un libro y sabes que no es ninguna maravilla. Lees un libro y sabes que si lo leyeras en cualquier otro momento te parecería otra cosa, te daría bastante igual y le sacarías miles de fallos. Este ha sido uno de esos libros.Llevo mucho (pero mucho) tiempo atascado con la lectura. Incluso aunque me gustara lo que estaba leyendo, me costaba muchísimo pasar de página, y mucho más acabar un libro. Este libro ha sido com...

    There's nothing like happy queer books during Pride month. Especially when said books are set during Pride month themselves.I loved how queer this was. Every single character but the parents is queer, and there's almost no homophobia. This isn't to say that there's no conflict - I love low-conflict queer romances too, but this isn't exactly one of them - it's just that the conflict is never driven by homophobia.⇝ Kate has always idealized her b...

    This was such a fantastic read and utterly adorable! I think what I loved most was the fact that we were almost dropped into the middle of a story already in the process of unfolding. The majority of the characters, having already come out, were happy and secure in their sexualities and relationships were already established, all of which were different but with an equally honest, real feel to them. I loved that although this had a focus around r...

    2.75 stars maybe? I didn't really enjoy this book, but the ending definitely pushed my rating up by half a star. I don't know. I'll think about it for a little bit longer...

    I may be biased because... well, David Levithan. But it was such a heartwarming read. I identified with Marc on such a weird level. I'm not a guy and I'm not gay, but love and friendship doesn't know no boundary. And as always, David Levithan knows what to say to make you feel better about a heartbreak. And as always, David Levithan knows how to make you feel better about yourself. And Nina Lacour was a good surprise as well, though I had a few p...

    "And we step off the curb, all of us together, as if to say, Here we come- through hard days and good ones, through despair and through exhilaration, in love and out of love, for just now or for forever. Here we come. It's out parade." As made clear by the four star rating, I love this. It's exactly what I expected, maybe even better. Usually Levithan novels deal with deep and even dark topics without lowering the general mood of the novel. this ...

    Querido David Levithan,Te amo mas esses seus livros escritos em parceria, plmdds, stop.Eu estava super empolgado com a premissa desse livro. Mais do que um romance LGBT, a história de amizade de um gay e uma lésbica! Mas não consegui gostar de nenhum dos protagonistas. Depois de ler Everything Leads to You da Nina LaCour, eu posso afirmar que essa autora é obcecada por protagonistas adolescentes que já têm sua vida profissional completament...

    I love Nina's words and will greedily look for all of her books. I requested this book on her name alone, I didn't even read the synopsis first. I loved Katie and Mark. I loved how they struggled with their similar-but-different situations. I love how they relied on each other to help. And I more than loved the dual POV. Nina's words {and David's too} are filled with such longing. I felt everything that these characters did. From the rush of a fi...

    this is probably around a 3.5. I thought this story was cute and fun, meaningful, but still kind of surface level. I didn't expect anything else, considering it was only about 250 pages. I loved the setting of pride week in san francisco and thought it really made the story that much more nice.ALSO can we talk about how the main character and i have the same name?? Because that never happens :P
