  • Candace Robinson
    This is the third book I have read by Shani Petroff, and I love her writing! She dashes in the right amount of humor in such cute stories! I loved Zev!!! Now let me get to Sari, Sari, Sari... I just love saying her name because it's awesome, anyway, there was numerous times I wanted to smack some sense into her. However, I loved that she felt real and how a teen would act in her situation! I kept thinking about this story after I reached the last...

    I’m not sure about this rating. 3 stars might be too high.Sari and Zev are interesting characters. She’s driven and he’s nerdy and together their relationship seemed sweet. There are some other characters who were lovely and I wish we would have learned more about them {Fitz and Dylan, I’m looking at you}, but this story is 10000000% The Sari Show.Plot wise it was a sort of lackluster. The blurb says “cheating” and I was expecting sex...

    *HUGE thanks to Swoon Reads/Macmillan for the early review copy in exchange for my honest opinionRTC on Lair Of Books (Link is in the bio) this was such a cute fun read with beautiful supportive parents & friendships 😄UPDATE: FULL REVIEW MAY ALSO BE VIEWED ON LAIR OF BOOKSMY REVIEW...I’d like to preface this review by stating that I am a sucker for stories set in airports…it’s my #1 setting of preference for cute rom-coms & so naturally,...
  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)
    I have read so many books about being stranded at an airport before, but I never seem to get sick of them. Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over follows this trope, and it is just as enjoyable. The story is dramatic, and the characters are so sweet. This is a short and sweet contemporary that is the perfect pick-me-up.Full review on The Candid Cover
  • Alison
    2.5 STARSThis was 216 pages of miscommunication and frustration. No, really. That is basically the plot.After Sari catches her boyfriend cheating, it deals with her back and forth emotions of hurt, pain, and acceptance. I get that, and that's what I would expect from the situation. However, these emotions are really the only thing that is focused on in this story. There's a weird side plot about her musical career that honestly didn't add much to...

    Swoon Reads has done it again....this book had me laughing out loud in several parts and cringing with discomfort in some parts. Sari is the character that I didn't know I needed and the whole concept of trying to get home, no matter how it is done, continues to entertain me. Zev is just as adorable as Sari, and I love how he continues to make sure that Sari knows she is a priority to him, no matter how she treats him. Thanks Swoon for the ARC!

    Sari Silver is having a bad Spring Break. First she walks into a party to find her boyfriend Zev liplocked with his ex-girlfriend. Then she realizes that they had both planned to head to Florida for Spring Break to visit their grandparents and spend some time together. Now, she doesn't want to be anywhere near him. He keeps texting and calling and saying that he can explain, but she doesn't give him a chance.She hitches a ride to the airport with...
  • Dani (Dani Reviews Things & Love in a time of Feminism)
    This was always going to be a risky book for me to read because it mentions cheating. Cheating is a big no-no for me. I've dealt with it enough in reality that I try to avoid it in fiction. Despite this, I was drawn to this book, though. Admittedly, what I expected was nothing like it turned out. I thought everything would happen on the trip home, as in some big, bad cheating would happen during the holiday. But actually, it all happens before, ...
  • Heidi
    Three stars: A romance with a lot of drama that lacks the light and fluffy. Sari is thrilled to be seeing her idol at a music concert, even if that means missing the party of the year that her boyfriend is attending. After the amazing concert, Sari and her friend, Trina, decide to pop into the party. At the party, Sari gets a heart shattering surprise. She finds her boyfriend, Zev, kissing his ex girlfriend. She flees in tears, vowing to not spea...
  • Samantha (WLABB)
    I was all heart-eyes for Petroff's last book, My New Crush Gave to Me, and was eager to read more of her work. She has a knack for creating a story that is fun, humorous, and heartwarming with just the right amount of drama to keep it interesting, and she has done so once again with Airports, Exes, and Other Things I'm Over.• Pro: I liked Sari a lot. I didn't necessarily always agree with her avoidance tactics, but when she listened to her hear...
  • Karlita | Tale Out Loud
    Full Review at Tale Out Loud | Facebook | Twitter | InstagramIf I ask my eighteen-year-old self and put my own shoes on Sari, I would also feel terrible and cheated. But the rational part of me would kick in to do a gut check before setting the score and make myself swallow in pity or be miserable for a potential breakup.I understood that Sari was hurt but if only she had listen, plain and simple, everything would turned out differently. She, he...
  • Colleen
    I really liked Fitz and I wanted to learn more about him. He seemed like a cool character. And I also had assumed that this book would have a little bit more traveling in it instead of being stuck in an airport. It's still a fast paced read, just not quite what I originally expected. It's good if you want a fast, fluffy plot! This is rated three stars. A three star rating doesn't mean that it was terrible. It was good, just not quite what I expec...
  • Emily (Obsessed Reader)
    I definitely don’t feel like this book lived up to the first of Petroff’s books that I read, which was My New Crush Gave to Me. However, I still thought this was a very cute contemporary, and it was very fun. I wished that some things had happened differently plot-wise, but of course that’s just my personal opinion that others may not agree with. Overall enjoyable and a very quick read, great for summer and for contemporary lovers!
  • ضحى الحداد
    I was so excited when I heard about a new book by Shani Petroff .. her stories are simple and almost drama free, this book is no different, it's about a messed up situation where Sira is stuck in a road trip with her cheating ex .. but I was really bored when we reached the half point and nothing was actually happening .. Sira is so annoying and judgmental to no end and I really didn't connect with her at all .. the story could've been better if ...
  • Marie
    I think it's more of a 3,5? Still thinking about it. This book was a quick, fun and fast-paced read for sure and I enjoyed following the main characters' struggles and appreciated the original setting and short time frame of only a couple days, too. I just felt a bit, frustrated because I would have loved to know the characters a little bit more, so many were interesting and had potential, but we only got to know them on the surface.Still, it was...

    I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book for a spot on the blog tour! I want to thank the author, publisher and Xpresso Book Tours for that :).I have read My New Crush Gave to Me and loved it and this one sounded amazing as well. I wasn't disappointed! I read this in one sitting (except for some kitten cuddles in between)! Sari was a fun character, and while this book was predictable (not a bad thing), it went ways I didn't expect. This is a...
  • Lisa Mandina
    4.5 stars really. This was one that I really ended up liking a lot! It honestly felt really realistic in how the characters behaved for the most part. It had a lot of humorous bits, and pop culture references, which I really enjoy. For example, it even mentioned Goodreads! I picked it up, and couldn't seem to put it down, it kept me turning pages (digital pages on my Nook, so a lot of tapping on the side of the screen). I like the way the "new/re...
  • Jenny
    I am adding this author to my instant buy list. Her books are so good. They're super quick to read (they're hard to put down). They're cute and cheesy but in a good way. I have to admit though after reading this I think I'll avoid the airport for awhile (I haven't flown for probably 4 years so I think I'm safe). *received a copy through netgalley to review.
  • Katherine Paschal
    **Stop by my blog @ during the tour for a chance to win prizes**The basis for the book is about heartbreak and stress, but the random bits of humor and lightheartedness were what really made me like the story. It's hard to get too down when your bestie turns your evil ex into Voldemort in your phone because you don't want his name mentioned. Or when said evil ex and your mom have a text relationship with i...

    ***Full review on wildandwonderfulreads.comMy favorite thing about Young Adult Contemporary books is how relatable they are! Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over is a quick, cute read that threw me back to young high school love and how shattered the smallest thing could make me feel then.Shani Petroff is no stranger to authoring well-loved YA Contemporaries — her lineup includes My New Crush Gave to Me and Romeo & What’s Her Name. Her...
  • Emma
    Grade: D+An ARC was provided by Macmillan in exchange for an honest review.The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Romances that begin at airports can be great fiction fodder. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is one of my favorite examples of this trope. Unfortunately, where that YA fave succeeds, Airports, Exes, and Other Things I'm Over falters.From the start, I expected Sari and Fitz to have more of a flirtation and an almost-relati...
  • Isha
    Overall, a quick cute summer read! I really liked Zev as a character. He was constantly doing cute things for Sari even though she kept getting mad at him. The cheating scandal with Zev was very predictable and was mostly made to be the issue of the book because of the way Sari reacted, but I don't blame her for not trusting him for a while after. As for Fitz and Dylan, I loved how they were super nice and they added another element to the story....
  • Laura's Book Addiction
    Just not as good as the authors previous book, I still enjoyed it but it didn’t hit me with all the feels!!
  • Michelle
    Let me start by saying I really love all of Shani Petroff's books and this didn't disappoint. Sari was planning on spending spring break in Florida with her boyfriend. Until, she walks in on him kissing his ex-girlfriend! I really liked Sari. She handled the situation as well as can be expected. The heartbreak Sari feels is very realistic. Even though Sari is devastated by the events, she manages to find some good throughout her trip. On her way ...
  • Autumn
    What I loved: This was a great clean YA book. Easy to recommend to younger YA readers. Some YA right now hits too many hot button topics and makes it hard to recommend to the younger YA readers, this one could easily be recommended. What I liked: The characters are endearing. The story is a nice and fun read. With a nice ending.What I hated: Can't say that I hated anything about it.

    'Airports, Exes, and Other Things I'm Over' by Shani Petroff captures the angst of romantic hardships and misunderstandings. When eighteen-year-old Sari, a senior in high school, plans a trip to Florida for spring break with her boyfriend (even though she plans to stay with her grandma), she thinks everything is coming up roses. Little does she know that everything is about to change when she unexpectedly shows up at a party and finds him kissing...
  • Jeraca
    I received this free eARC novel from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review. Sari has things going on for her. She just went to an AMAZING concert with her best friend, and then she is going to Florida with her boyfriend for spring break. No parentals, sunshine instead of Manhattan's dreary weather, and sometimes hanging out with her grandma, who she was staying with. But when Sari shows up to the "party of the year" where her boyfriend is, s...
  • Chelsea
    I have some mixed thoughts on this book, so please stick with me while I try and spew them all out and make them make some sort of sense. This book starts way sooner than I expected it to. I knew the main plot was being stuck in an airport in Florida with an ex who cheated, but we start back in New York before the trip and before the ex is even an ex. So if you plan to start this off pretty quickly and be filled in on the back story, don't, becau...
  • J.
    Actual rating: 3.5 stars.I received an ARC via work with no obligation to leave a personal review.I really enjoyed this! I had been in a slump for reading for work, and I don't know what it is about Swoon Reads titles, but they just suck me in, in a great way, even though the writing is not always as polished as in other books. I must say, though, that I like Shani Petroff's writing enough and am definitely interested in reading her other books! ...
