    • I MADE A PLAYLIST FOR THIS BOOK AND YOU CAN LISTEN WHILE READING MY REVIEW HERE.Aspen surprised me I know it s my fault because I don t read blurbs, but what I really expected from this book is nothing but rainbows and unicorns and sunshine In short, I thought it was a fluffy read Don t get me wrong, the book wasn t depressing or very sad Nothing like that Though, I did get teary eyed at some point Let s just say that ASPEN is a lightly dark read I know, that s so weird How can a book be lightly [...]


    • ASPEN is the kind of book you wish would never end The characters are finely drawn, the world is carefully created, and the relationships are meaningful and realistic Aspen herself is such a relatable, likable character that I find myself wondering what s going on in her life now I wish there had been characters like Aspen when I was reading as a teen She s flawed, and often conflicted, but she a great friend, a devoted daughter and all around just a good person As readers we get to see her gro [...]

    • This review is also available on my blog bonfirebooks.wordpress 201This is a stand alone novel by the brilliantly talented Miss Rebekah Crane, who has a way with words This novel was light and funny but also had some darker undertones and taught me a very serious and important message that truly touched my heart It is not often that books can does this effectively, but this contemporary romance does this to the point where it brought tears to my eyes I didn t even cry at the Fault in Our Stars, [...]


    • Katelyn died in the car accident that Aspen believes was her doing And now Katelyn won t leave her alone And then there s the small issue of Aspen having a crush on Ben Katelyn s grieving boyfriend.Aspen is, in my opinion, the perfect representation of what gems in the YA category look and read like It deals with social issues, while also maintaining an aura of dark satire around it.As a girl, Aspen has many petty issues that girls actually have As a girl recovering from the trauma of an acciden [...]

    • My copy was provided by Netgalley.Aspen used to be a nobody at school No one knew her name and the only way people recognized her was her crazy hair The only thing weird about her is her mother who is a stoner with a weird boyfriend who smells and has holes in his pants where there definitely shouldn t be any holes Yet one night, Aspen made a mistake that changed her life forever.She was involved with a fatal car crash She lived with only a cast and a scar as a reminder of the incident The other [...]


    • I d give this book 3.5 of 5 stars Too bad doesn t do half stars I did like the book a lot.But there are always reasons why I don t give a book a 4 or 5 stars I was thinking about it, then I thought about how I was a little confused in the beginning My reasons for giving the rating I did was because I didn t think some sentences made sense, a couple grammar and capitalization issues, and it wasn t exactly perfect A 5 star book is considered perfect to me No book is ever perfect A 4 is really good [...]

    • FULL REVIEW ON athousandwordsamillionbooks.bl I received a copy from the publisher 3 via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Sometimes, what we feel can t be described because it would take every word, every sound, every emotion ever created to do it And That is how I felt, well feel, about Aspen Stunned, and held captive from the first word till the very last When it was over, I had to pull my head up from the pages and the world I found myself so completely immersed in, and wonder for a [...]


    • What an amazing story Oh my goodness where do I start I am ridiculously in love with this book When I was asked if I could read it in exchange for an honest review, I immediately said yes Not because I thought it would be good, but because I believe in supporting the indie community I wasn t sure what to expect since lately, most NA books have been very much alike silly dialogue, instant attractions, bad boy meets good girl and they live happily ever after Aspen breaks that pattern with believab [...]


    • I requested this book for review from NetGalley because I fell in love with the cover the minute I saw it for the first time Likewise, I also loved the characters in this book, as well the message that forms the heart of this quirky, yet moving, novel Aspen is an unusual character So is her relationship with her mom, but that is exactly what kept me glued to the pages I was outright fascinated by the reversed roles bond Aspen has with her mother, whom she fondly refers to as Ninny Although this [...]
