    Hi… Have we met? I’m a Kasie West junkie. Whatever she’s writing, I’m reading. Her writing, her characters, her stories… everything just works perfectly for me, and her latest, Love, Life & The List was such a wonderful read.Abby and Cooper are best friends and have been for ages. The catch? Abby has some very strong, unrequited feelings for Cooper, and when she approached him about them and he didn’t react as expected she very quickl...

    About: Love, Life, and the List is a young adult fiction written by Kasie West. It will be published on 12/26/17 by Harper Teen, an imprint of HarperCollins, 384 pages. The genres are contemporary, fiction, romance, and young adult. My Experience: I started reading Love, Life, and the List on 10/20/17 and finished it on 10/25/17. This book is another fun read from Kasie West. It’s full of sarcastic humor, challenges, friendship, and family. I l...

    That was so cute! But also boring.Also, I love Cooper Wells. Aaaand this book did not cure my slump. How sad.*Kasie West cures slumps. I am in a slump. Therefore Kasie West will cure me from said slump.Buddy read with Critical Reader.

    I loved Kasie West's pararnomals but have had mixed results with her contemporaries. Sad to say that overall I thought this was just okay and that some aspects of it really bothered me. Abby is secretly in love with her best friend Cooper. A year ago she told him this, but when he didn't seem to return her feelings, she quickly claimed she'd been joking. Now she hangs around him all the time, silently pining. Abby's also an artist who's hoping to...
  • Stacee
    This was exactly what I wanted to read. Love love love the BFF to more trope and Abby and Cooper are adorable together. I love their snark and banter and her art and his goofiness. I really enjoyed being on Abby’s head while she figured everything. There’s a great set of characters here and I can’t wait to see who gets a story. Plot wise, it was slow enough for me to savor and quick enough to satisfy. I loved the idea of the list and how ev...

    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)This was a YA contemporary romance story about an artist and a quad bike rider.I liked Abby and Cooper in this, and I liked their friendship. I felt sorry for Abby that Cooper didn’t want more, and I also felt sorry for her when it came to trying to get her art in a show.The storyline in this was about Abby being told by her employer that her art didn’t ...

    *I Received an advanced copy of this book from Harpercollins in exchange for an honest review.*I'm really trying to figure out how to review this because I, of course, I enjoyed it. It's Kasie West, obviously, it was good. But that's basically all it was for me. This is the first time I haven't REALLY shipped a couple in one of her books, I just wasn't feeling it. I will literally read anything and everything Kasie West writes. Gimme now.

    This was my first ever Kasie West book, and I picked it up when I was in probably my worst reading slump all year. I have to give Kasie kudos for the fact that I read the entire thing in one sitting and it managed to pull me out of my slump! It was a really cute, fast, and fun read, which is all I expected when I went into it, honestly.→ what i liked ←• Abby’s family is pretty precious. We see some surprising anxiety and agoraphobia rep...

    3.5You have no idea how much I needed this. The last two releases by Kasie West left me more than disappointed, as you know, so I was just a tiny bit scared when I picked up Love, Life, and the List. But guess what: I didn't need to. This is one of the cutest Kasie West novels out there, as far as I'm concerned. I've read all and each of her books in just one sitting, and this one was no exception. I finished it just some hourse ago, and I alread...
  • Mlpmom (Book Reviewer)
    Absolutely LOVED! Full review to come closer to release date.*EDITED TO ADD REVIEW*I have always loved Kasie West's stories. From her endearing characters to the heartfelt story line that always leaves you with a smile on your face by the end. But there are some, that just resonate with me and Love, Life and The List was one such story.I connected so much with Abby in a deeper emotional level than I thought I would. In some areas she spoke to me ...

    3.5/5 • this was so cute!! i'm not a big fan of unrequited love stories, but Love, Life, and the List wasn't too bad. the novel felt like a classic kasie west: cliché, adorable, and somewhat cringey (in the best way!). everything about this was super addicting and i had to binge it; is there any other way to read a kasie west novel? (no.)

    This book was so cute. I've read a few Kasie West novels now, and I think this one is my favorite. This is a light and fluffy YA contemporary novel that follows this girl named Abby who is a painter, and she desperately wants her paintings displayed in this art show, but she is sad when she shows her boss her paintings and he rejects her and says her paintings need "more heart". So Abby creates a list of experiences she feels like she needs to ha...

    I’m so disappointed that I wasn’t able to enjoy this book more, my relationship with Kasie West’s books have been a bit disappointing lately, but I thought that this latest book would be a fun read. But I just wasn’t able to connect with Abby or Cooper’s characters at all, especially not Cooper’s. I know Abby had a long-term crush on Cooper and so she did find it hard moving on, but with the way that he had shut her down when she trie...

    I’m very stingy when it comes to spending my money on books, but if there’s one author I don’t hesitate to buy a book from it’s Kasie West. I know her books will always be super cute and make me happy and Love, Life, and the List did not let me down.I loved how sarcastic Abby was. I loved the banter she had with pretty much every character in the book, but especially her equally sarcastic grandfather. I also found her mother to be a prett...
  • Sam Kozbial
    Rating: 4.5 StarsThis is the Kasie West I love!!! I loved Abby and all her sarcastic wit, and loved seeing her change and grow via "the list". Right now, I am just going to bask in all the happy feelings I am feeling. Love, Life, and the List, was one of my Can't-Wait Wednesday picks back in October, and I am happy to report, that this book delivered beyond my expectations. Here is my "Heart List" sharing all the reasons why I loved this book so ...

    2.5 starsLove, Life and the List was the kind of cutesy contemporary I knew I could expect of West. The premise was enticing; the promise of a best-friends-to-more romance too good to turn away. The execution, however, left a bit to be desired. The tone was quite young so its attempt to explore important topics like mental health and family fell a little flat. The characterisation was also quite shallow and there were some subplots that took too ...

    I LOVED THAT! Funny, flirty and full of feels...this is Kasie West at her best! I can't wait to see whose story is next.
  • Brices Mice Christian Book Reviews
    This is going to be the most unusual review that I have ever done...why? Because I'm reviewing Love, Life, and The List by Kasie West without reading the end as of yet...why? on.Will this story effect you the same as it did me, probably not as we are all in different places in our lives at different times, feeling the ups and downs that befall us. Ms. West doesn't need to write with a ton of descriptions, as what she does give us through t...

    It pains me to give a Kasie West book only two stars, it really does, but this one didn’t work for me at all. Usually West‘s books make me smile and swoon but for the majority of this I was just as miserable as Abby. I usually like stories about best friends falling in love but there needs to be at least a little bit of something on both sides to keep you hoping and rooting for them but in Love, Life and the List it was entirely one sided. Ab...
