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.
  • Amy
    Well, that was a very pleasant surprise
  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)
    I have been anticipating Katie Cotugno’s 9 Days and 9 Nights since I first heard the news of a 99 Days sequel. Molly and Gabe are back, but in an awkward situation, and the story is very realistic. I liked the book, but I did have a couple of issues with it, such as all the pointless drama. I didn’t love this one, but I do think that many will appreciate this sequel.Full review on The Candid Cover

    “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 ;)
  • Jane (It'sJaneLindsey)
    I should have known better, yet I did this to myself anyway.

    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 ...
  • Jillian (thehappy.reader)
    4.25 starsI really loved this. Such a great follow up to 99 days and i honestly want more!! I’m a big fan of Katie cotugno now and can’t wait to read the rest of her books. She just has this way of writing like real flawed people that I just really enjoy.
  • Jasprit
    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...
  • 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’...
  • Jennifer
    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...
  • Samantha (WLABB)
    As a 99 Days fan, I would like to thank Katie Cotugno for writing this book. This was the closure me, Molly, and Gabe needed, and the book exceed my expectations.•Pro: Whoa, Molly! Once again, my heart was totally with this young woman. I thought she grew a lot over the course of 99 Days, but she wasn't done, and it was really something special to see how she evolved since then, and what new "fallout" she was dealing with. •Pro: My emotions, ...
  • Lauren R.
    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...
  • Sarah
    I feel so let down and disappointed by this sequel. 99 days is one of my favorite books of all time. I love the writing, story, characters, and book despite its flaws. I felt like it ended on a pretty promising note and didn't need a sequel. However, I was overjoyed when I saw I'd get to read more Molly and Gabe.The book is filled with pointless bickering and angst. I didn't connect with any of the characters. (view spoiler)[ What was the point o...
  • Meg
    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!
  • Sara
    *4.25I enjoyed this book even more than 99 day though not to say that the beginning was kinda slow not going to lie. Hoping there’s another book coming out 🤞🤞
  • Jen (The Starry-Eyed Revue)
    This was everything I've come to expect from a Katie Cotugno book: gritty, genuine, and full of awful truths. The situations are awkward and uncomfortable but they make you think and consider how you'd react. The characters are real and the story is honest, and even when it's depressing, it's still oddly hopeful.
  • 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...
  • Kelley
    I’m gonna start this with I loved this book so much! I was so scared because of how much I love these characters that I might hate this second book, but I wasn’t disappointed at all! Molly is still the most amazing character in a book ever! She reminds me of me and I can see where she is coming from with all of her actions. Everyone should read these two books and understand how amazingly strong Molly is. Longer review to come soon!
  • Estelle
    We don’t deserve this book but I’m so glad we have it.
  • Grace {Rebel Mommy Book Blog}
    I know that 99 Days was a book that divided people mainly because of the whole love triangle and brother thing. I get it but I saw past that to a really good story. So when I found out we were getting more of Molly's story I was excited.While on a trip to Europe with her new boyfriend, Ian, Molly runs into Gabe  and his new girlfriend. Somehow they all end up going to Ireland together which was totally awkward. There was so much unresolved betw...
  • Azrah
    I completely forgot what happened know 99 days, so I had to go read some reviews to refresh my memory. I do remember enjoying it.After refreshing my memory I remembered that I was satisfied with the ending of 99 days. Katie Cotugno's thing is to wrote almost incomplete/vague endings that leave the main characters on the edge of new beginnings. I really love that about her books. And although I thought this book was a little unnecessary I still li...
  • Sarah Louise
    Oh, how I needed this. It felt entirely different than 99 Days, though. You could definitely read this one on its own and still get the gist of the unfolded drama that took place previously. I was taken aback initially by how different the vibe was. I mean, for starters, Molly was an entirely different Molly, more calculated and now with Ian, her boyfriend from Boston. Their planned trip to Ireland to visit Imogen is completely overturned when Ga...
  • Katie V
    I just can’t get behind a second book where the two characters you are supposed to root for are sort of scuzzy people. I didn’t get the warm fuzzies reading this. I felt uncomfortable the whole book.
  • 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...
  • 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
  • Holly
    I didn’t think this sequel was necessary. For a book that was only 260 pages it seemed to take me forever to read and made me dislike Molly a great deal. I was expecting a Europe vacation and all I go were unnecessary arguments and angst.
  • 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.
  • Kayla
    OKAY SO. For most of the book, it dragged. I’d honestly say 2.5 stars. Then the last like 40 pages are probably a 4.5. Don’t get me wrong, this book had a few good moments throughout too, but overall, it was boring and basically a long, dragged out argument. Possible spoilers: I was so over the Gabe thing in Europe. Molly was so defensive and twisted everything everyone said to play victim. I read 99 Days a couple years ago so I don’t remem...
