Reviews 9 Days and 9 Nights

  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)
    Oh man, I liked this one a WHOLE LOT. Will definitely be purchasing a physical copy because I adore this story and everything it stands for. I so did not expect this one to pack the punch that it did, and I’m living for it.
  • Danielle (Life of a Literary Nerd)
    “It occurs to me that maybe this is what friendship is sometimes: saying your piece, then crossing your fingers and hoping for the best.” We are finally getting into contemporary season and I couldn’t be happier and what better way to kick it off than a fun summery “roadtrip romance” sequel to 99 Days with Katie Cotugno’s 9 Days and 9 Nights. We follow Molly as she and her new boyfriend are on vacation in Europe and they run into Gab...
    I loved revisiting the characters from 99 Days in this new story! I liked the European travel aspect of it (especially since I read it on my flight home from a little trip to Europe), I enjoyed seeing how the characters had changed since the last time I'd encountered them and I liked how it ended too ;)

    Starting 2018 with a Katie Cotugno novel was the best decision. Her storytelling never fails to impress me, and inspire me. It’s been a few years since I read 99 Days, the companion novel to this one, so I needed a refresher on just how that story ended. Katie did a really good job of catching the reader up to speed & filling in the details, at just the right moments. I never once felt lacking, or pulled from the story, trying to remember what ...

    I was a huge fan of 99 Days, despite it featuring a love triangle between a girl and two brothers, normally I stay away from these sorts of books, but Cotugno ended up making this book work for me. So when I heard that there would be a follow up book in 9 Days and 9 Nights I couldn't wait. The only thing was that I didn't end up loving this book as much as I'd hoped. I liked the person that Molly had grown up and become, she had come a long way f...

    9 Days and 9 Nights is the sequel to 99 days. It is a YA contemporary romance however the main characters are all in college. The narrator is once again Molly.Do you need to read 99 Days before reading this book? IMO the answer is yes. You really need to have read the first book before reading this one to fully understand Molly. Yes, technically you could follow this book if you read it as a standalone. But I think that you would miss out on so m...

    You know those books you finish and you wish you could have a sequel, but you also really don’t want one because you feel like it’ll get ruined? Well when that sequel ends up happening and the original story DOESN’T get ruined, it’s one of the best feelings as a reader. I’m here to confirm that totally happened for me with 9 DAYS AND 9 NIGHTS. Katie Cotugno writes the messiest characters and situations that have me on the edge of my sea...

    This book was wonderful! Such a great continuation and such a great read! I loved having Molly and Gabe back in my life!! I want more! Though I don’t think we will be getting more. Yet again, Cotugno blows me away! Longer review coming soon!
  • Jaime Arkin
    I adore Katie Cotugno’s writing. Her stories always delve into challenging themes that will make you really think about how you feel about so many things! 9 Days and 9 Nights is a companion to the amazing 99 Days. It’s been a while since I’ve read it, but Cotugno reminded me wonderfully in the first few chapters! That said, I’m looking forward to reading these two back to back in the near future. Molly is now living in Boston where she’...

    UPDATEI would like to take this time to thank Katie Cotugno for giving Molly and Gabe another book. I never felt I got the closure I needed when I finished 99 days, and though I am satisfied, I am totally game for another book. Full review to follow. *ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

    We don’t deserve this book but I’m so glad we have it.
  • Lisa (Remarkablylisa)
    MY RATING: 4.5/5 STARSI received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.It's been a hot minute since I read 99 days. I think it may have been released 2 years ago and if someone could fact check that for me, that would be perfect. To be honest, I don't remember what happened in 99 Days. The facts are these. I knew I enjoyed it. I knew a bunch of readers got tired of Katie's tales because it always seemed to involve a love tria...
  • Sara (A Gingerly Review)
    4.5 stars from me!I don't know what it was about this book that made me love it. This was so well written and so well delivered that I couldn't get enough. I have struggled with Katie's past books but this was perfection for me. I loved it.FRTC
  • Andi (Andi's ABCs)
    I thought Fireworks was my favorite Katie book. Well after reading the sequel to 99Days, it’s Ben bumped. I loved this book something fierce! It was awkward and uncomfortable and filled with amazing moments. Love, love, love. Review to come.
  • Rachel
    Real rating: Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. This book reminded me of why I felt in love with her writing when I read How to Love. 9 Days and 9 Nights is messy, complicated, and full of these raw and honest moments. So good!
  • Shannon (It Starts At Midnight)
    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 4.5* 99 Days was a controversial sort of book among the reviews I have read, and while I happened to be one of the people who really liked it, the one thing I struggled with was the ending. I wanted more, and this was exactly what I had hoped for. The rare sequel that steps up its game from its predecessor, 9 Days, 9 Nights fully de...

    "I’m a damage doer, no matter how hard I try not to be. Maybe everybody is, in some way."My synopsis: After some regretful occurrences from the previous summer, Molly Barlow has moved on, or at least, it seemed so. In Boston, Molly is not who she once was that summer. In Boston, she met Ian. Ian is the perfect balm to her healing heart and with Ian, Molly is a better version of herself – or so she thinks. During a European tour with Ian, Moll...
  • Megan Easter
    Rating: 3.5 starsI was a little apprehensive to read this book because of how much I disliked the first book but I thought I would give it a try anyways and I am happy to say that I definitely enjoyed it more than the first book. Molly has finally grown up. She accepts that what she did was wrong and she's tried to change. She's dealt with the fall out of what happened the previous summer and has endured a lot of trials and struggles. She's final...

    Give me a few days to gather up my thoughts.
  • Cindy Wilkerson
    3.5 starsWas this book really necessary? No.Do you have to suspend disbelief for a portion of the book?Yes.But did I care?No.This was a very cute wrap up from 99 Days, and I was very pleased with how it ended.Oh, and this is me being picky, but it bothers me that the 9th day is “a week later”. THAT ISN’T THE 9th DAY!
  • Shanyn (Chick Loves Lit)
    I was able to read this directly after reading 99 DAYS, the first book in this duo, so I was very excited and ready to start this. Sometimes (usually) I am very bad at remembering details in books, which is why I read them directly after one another, but Cotugno does a great job of recapping in bits here and there to jog your memory.Molly is not a perfect person, by a long shot, but this book showed that she actually learned from her mistakes bef...
  • Savannah Garner
    4.75 BEAUTIFUL STARS I want to give a HUGE thank you to Epic Reads for providing me with an early copy in exchange for an honest review. This book was so so so so good, I can barley articulate what I want to say about it. I absolutely loved it, my only complaint was I wish it were just a tad bit longer and certain elements (that I will discuss in my blog post on the release date) were not involved. Speaking of release date this book comes out May...

    When we last met Molly Barlow, she was right in the middle of her very own real-life soap opera, a dramatic tale of illicit romance, betrayal and revenge. It’s safe to say that back then, despite her penchant for nerdy Netflix documentaries, Molly was not the shy, retiring type: rather she was a girl who threw caution to the wind and loved to live in the moment, allowing her heart to indulge in its every forbidden desire. Molly was not a girl w...

    EXCELLENT resolution of this story. I loved it! It had a lot of romantic tension, but it made sense as these characters worked through their issues. The ending was the best.Allyson Ryan was the perfect voice for this book on audio.
  • Books & Dreams (Monisha)
    3.5 stars. Did like the first book much more.
  • Brittany
    I mainly picked this up because 2014 Brittany said she would read the sequel in this series. I should not have listened to her. You have to completely suspend disbelief in order to get through this completely unrealistic head-banging-inducing book. I'm usually willing to forgive that to an extent, but the main character in this book was the absolute worst. She was a total jerk to most everyone around her and faced little to no repercussions for h...
