    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) “I put my toes on the tip of the curb and look down and think maybe a cliff is no different than a street corner. Sometimes you just have to take a step, and sometimes you have to take a leap, and either way, all that really matters is that you’re not standing still.” This was a YA contemporary story about a guy and girl who wanted to complete seven...

    Together at Midnight is a standalone YA contemporary novel. This is my first book by this author.I loved that this book was set in New York City.

    Jennifer Castle won me over with her debut novel The Beginning of After way back when. So when the chance arose to read and review her latest YA, Together At Midnight, I jumped at the opportunity. The cover was gorgeous, the storyline sounded interesting, and it took place during the holiday season - the week between Christmas and New Year’s to be exact. Simply put, I couldn’t wait to dive in! Thankfully, Together at Midnight is another must ...

    This was delightful and heartwarming and even a little unexpected. I loved Max. I loved Kendall. I loved tagging along with those two as they tried to commit random acts of kindness in NYC, while also trying to figuring out their own personal issues. Full review to follow. *I would like to thank the publisher for the advanced copy of this book BLOG | INSTAGRAM | BLOGLOVIN | FRIEND ME ON GOODREADS

    I'm glad Together at Midnight is being published during winter because it's perfect for that time of the year. New York, during the last couple of days of December, two people and a couple of strangers. It was perfect. The way Jennifer Castle writes is just atmospheric. If you are on a lookout for a cozy winter read, look no further.

    Jennifer Castle is such a quietly strong voice in the YA community today. This is my third novel of her’s to read & once again I’m wow’ed by the beauty of her storytelling. For fans of books set in New York City, throw in the holiday season, plus a task at hand for two misguided teens — you’ll want to read this novel!

    This was a really surprising read. I was a little bit skeptical going in because the synopsis sounded a wee bit preachy but the story was just very thought provoking. I loved the dynamic between the two protagonists the most, and how their relationship and friendship is one where they both depended on and helped each other during difficult moments. I liked the open-ended nature of the novel as well and how there’s a hint of “anything can happ...

    Together at Midnight was definitely a different read than what I was expecting it to be, Castle’s way of giving us the story completely won me over. You could say I wasn’t really expecting much with Kendall and Max setting themselves to perform random acts of kindness, anyone could do this right? But what would you even class as a random act of kindness, how would you know you’re even helping someone? This ended up being one tough act to co...
