    Surprisingly I really liked this book. When I started it I had no expectations what so ever. Because of the cheesy cover and title, I didn’t expect to like it, but I really did. It was really sweet and had a great group of characters.The story follows Cora, Paisley, Henry, Otis, Lizzie, Cameron, Jacinta and Luke. The story is told through all of their points of view. They are mostly from different friend groups. They are all seniors and the boo...

    3.5 StarsTuxes, dresses, and drama. OH MY!Sandy Hall’s A Prom to Remember is full of classic prom problems like no one to go with, doesn’t want to go, can’t go, and king and queen squabbles. All that more is told in the trademark Sandy Hall many-points-of-view style. We hear from 7 voices—Cora, Paisley, Henry, Cameron, Lizzie, Otis, and Jacinta. But there is also a swirl of side characters in the mix to follow—like Tag, Madison, Kelsey,...

    This is another story that I feel is perfect for the teens of today. While this is my first book I've actually read by this author, I've had one sitting on my TBR shelf, and now I'm excited to get around to reading it. This story had such an amazing range of characters and situations. It reminded me a little of the recent movie Blockers. It also is a book I will recommend at the bookstore, and to my students, for anyone who enjoyed Simon Vs. the ...

    The story is told from the points-of-view of seven different characters who are diverse in background, physical type, and sexuality. We follow Cora, Paisley, Jacinta, Cameron, Henry, Lizzie, and Otis as they navigate the weeks before prom. They deal with the usual teenage issues such as finding a date and the perfect outfit, but they also deal with deeper issues such as sexuality, anxiety, and step-families. Initially, it’s difficult to remembe...

    LIKED: Realistic teens, cute couples, fun friendships, relatable feelings.MEH: I get that the prom is the central plot, but a lot of the scenes felt really slice-of-life instead of essential.

    Sandy Hall’s books are like literary sweatpants to me. Safe, comfortable and relaxing, but not something I’d sport in public all the time. Fluffy books, such as Hall’s, are a treat when I get bogged down by life or reading a bunch of the same genre. Thus, sweatpants.

    MY RATING: 3/5 STARSI received an ARC from Raincoast Books in exchange for an honest review.I simply adore Sandy Hall's covers. Her books are always gorgeous no matter what type of story she's writing or the genre. Although I have a copy of her debut novel, A Little Something Different, I haven't actually had the courage to pick it up. It's not intimidating by the sheer size of it because it's quite thing but I think I'm more intimidated by the d...

    I enjoyed the story. It's cute, most part seems very realistic minus a few parts are to those rom com prom movies. But overall very enjoyable and could relate to every character. One story in hear I loved the most and worked out to how I wanted it to so I'm happy.

    Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review....I really enjoyed this light-hearted story. At times I got confused by all the characters, but I kind of loved the soap opera feel of the whole thing. There was a big six-degrees of Kevin Bacon feel going on in this story which was fun. Sure, parts of the story are a little bit too convenient - but it's YA...that's what happens. I would definitely recommend this to readers who enjo...

    3.5 - DELIGHTFULLY CUTE, FUN, AND ADORABLEWith realistic situations that will take you down memory lane, diverse characters you can’t help but love, and adorable friendships that will make your heart melt, A PROM TO REMEMBER was a pleasantly entertaining read.This book was delightfully cute, fun and made me smile… but I do have to mention that I had a difficult time keeping track of the characters in the beginning. I actually almost wanted to...

    This was cute. I enjoyed seeing how the main characters dealt with their senior year and life in general. each one changed over the period of the book. The book centered around Cora, Paisley, Henry, Otis, Lizzie, Cameron and Jacinta. Their thoughts, feelings and prom. For Cora she was confused about herself and what she was doing in the future. She had the perfect guy but for someone reason he drove her nuts. It wasn’t that she didn’t love hi...

    This book is so cute. There are about a million main characters, and they're all so different and so great in a wide variety of ways. I am torn if I love Paisley and Henry or Lizzie and Cameron most. Jacinta is also great. Oh, and so is Cora. And also Otis and Luke. And Madison, LOL. …Dangit.This is told from the point of view of a bunch of different seniors in high school starting when they get back from spring break at the end of April all th...

    Rating 4.5 out of 5 One of the main reasons I like to read young adult books as an adult is I like stories that take me back to that age and the time in my life A PROM TO REMEMBER does just that and it’s probably why I liked it so much. A PROM TO REMEMBER is fun and sweet and endearing.I decided to read A PROM TO REMEMBER because I wanted to read a story about prom during “prom season”. This book is more about what happens leading up to the...

    I just loved this book. It follows a few high school kids and their lives planning and getting ready for the Prom. All the characters are very likable and they all have a variety of prom issues and emotions. Promposals, the perfect dress, asking the right person and finding yourself. Books like this always keep me smiling and loving contemporaries. I don't want to go into the story more as not to spoil it but I highly recommend it to everyone who...

    A bit hard to keep the characters straight at first, but overall, a cute story. I super loved the romance between Laptop Girl (Lizzie) and Mystery Boy (Cameron). I also liked Jacinta's quest to become the heroine in her own life instead of Unnamed Nerd Girl 3 and I was kinda rooting for her to end up with Henry, who was also really sweet. I found Paisley annoying, and was pretty meh over Cora's dilemma, and the Otis/Luke story was just okay.

    I'm not much for contemporary....However this book was so utterly lovely!!! I loved the premise of following different characters perspectives all leading up to prom. The author's writing had me feeling like I was each and every character. I have never read anything by Sandy Hall but I will most definitely be looking for her other works!!

    Fun romantic read that will be a hit with some of my students. Prom is something that everyone knows about and this story takes a cast of characters on a journey toward their prom night and all the adventures and personal growth that come with it. This was a cute book! Thanks netgalley!

    ***Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC***This book meet and exceeded all my expectation that I had for it. Seven seniors, one prom and all the hijinks, fears and fun that are expected on prom night. Everyone has something that is holding them back from fully living the "true prom experience" for all different reasons but the night of the prom everyone is able to push their differences (or fears) aside and live it up...just how they want it to be. San...

    I'm not surprised that I enjoyed this as much as I did. So far, Sandy Hall has not disappointed me overall. I usually don't like having multiple POVs, but I didn't mind here.Even though I wish some of them were swapped. I would have preferred Luke's POV over Otis', Madison's over Lizzie's, and Amelia's over Cameron's. Those three characters just didn't really do anything for me. Specifically, I didn't really get Otis, he made a huge thing out of ...

    Sandy Hall hatte mich bereits damals mit ihrem Buch A Little Something Different begeistert, das vor einigen Jahren erschien. Als mich Goodreads also dieses Jahr darauf aufmerksam machte, dass ein weiteres Buch von ihr im Handel erscheinen wird, konnte ich nicht widerstehen. In A Prom to Remember geht es um die Prom einer Abschlussklasse. An der Schule ist es seit Jahren üblich, immer dasselbe Thema zu wählen, nämlich A Prom to Remember, weil ...

    This review can also be seen on: NicoleHendersonReads Sandy Hall is seriously one of my favourite contemporary authors because she just writes these perfectly cheesy (but not too over the top) reads with adorable romances and cute characters. I’ll honestly read anything she puts out, so when I heard that a new book was being released, I knew I needed to read it ASAP. And I was even more excited when I received an early ARC of it.This was such a...

    Sandy Hall’s A Prom to Remember follows a pretty realistic, diverse, and extensive friend group as they prepare for their final days of high school and their senior prom. As far as plot goes, there isn’t a lot going on other than the overall point of going to prom, and the minutia that a school dance entails. Instead, this story focuses more on the different relationships amongst the group, be they romantic or friend based.Overall, I think th...

    I feel like these last two months have just been me being disappointed by books I was excited about, and this fall into that category of books. There were many ways that this book fell flat for me, one of them was the many POV's. When it comes to POV's, I prefer there to be only one, but depending on the story there are times where I think having more than one works. This was not one of those books. I honestly lost count of the amount of POV's t...

    Review originally posted at my blog for Xpresso Book Tours: https://bookishpuffcorn.wordpress.com...A Prom to Remember by Sandy Hall is a cute and cozy contemporary read for everyone! It’s like watching everyone get ready for a prom I never had. Never really experienced it. Yes, never. Although, we had a Graduation Ball in high school and it may be the same with prom in some cases but I didn’t enjoy it that much because our tables were in the...
