    • I loved everything about this book, and it s honestly no surprise to me It has all kinds of elements that I love second chances, best friends, something of a summer road trip and a little bit of drama Vee s best friends just landed a coveted spot on a battling bands reality show, and Logan, the lead singer, has talked her into joining them and getting some much needed experience in PR and marketing How can she turn down spending the next three months with her friends and the rest of the bands on [...]


    • 4 out of 10 Another book from work I would love this story about 10 years ago, when I was into music bands and such The only thing which helped me through was Cam s mystery And even this turned out to be a deal as big as it seemed to be If you love music related stories mixed up with romance, which is all about misunderstandings, then you ll be delighted, I guess


    • I ve fallen in love with Cam Yep You can t have him DThis was a beautifully written, romantic, and poignant second chances love story, and it grabbed my heart from the start The story unfolded in a way that drew me in and wouldn t let go well in to the night Chapters alternated from past to present, and it felt like two stories in one I loved it Cam and Vee stole my heart, and I can t wait to read of their story 3 Please tell me there s a sequel I was given an ARC for my honest review.


    • So, this story is kind of post high school with flashbacks from before, but I m still considering it YA because there was honestly nothing that really made it feel like it wavered into new adult territory But it was nearly unputdownable I know a lot of readers don t like flashbacks, but I love that you get a well rounded idea of a character, seeing what they were like before and how they ve changed Seeing where everything went wrong and that they re being given a second chance I also love that [...]


    • Jessica Pennington s Love Songs Other Lies is a music infused romance about a pair of perfectly imperfect teenagers who will have readers rooting for their happily ever after Equal parts heartbreaking and hopeful, contemporary young adult fans won t be able to put this debut down 1 Characters to cheer for I m a fan of both Vee and Cam how passionate they are, how vulnerable they are, how screwed up they are, and how much they care for each other From the very beginning, all s I wanted for them w [...]


    • Updating my review soon.Given that this was just an excerpt I read, I really love every single moment of it It s very easy to be caught up in the moment and before I knew it, the free pages were over I was left torn, hanging and all I could think of was what s gonna happen with the rest of the story.I could say that the first five chapters were powerful enough for me to make this one of my anticipated read this year It s consistent, engaging and exciting I m very much looking forward to read wha [...]


    • This book was all kinds of adorable I loved the dual POV between Vee and Cam, and I loved the dual timelines that played throughout Pennington did a wonderful job of having convincing and correlating character arcs separated by 2 years and 2 main characters I highly recommend to fans of boy bands, redemption arcs, and the magic of reality TV Guaranteed to make your heart feel warm and fuzzy


    • I have a thing for contemporaries with music in them I just always pick them up, and the don t usually disappoint I liked Long Songs Other Lies, but I know it s going to be a forgettable read for me While I did really enjoy the Then Now format and the history it brought to the story, and I always love a good RomCom contemporary, I just didn t get invested in this The main problem I had with the story is that my interest started waning and just kept fading the I read By the end of the story I di [...]



    • This is a second chance romance that weaves the past into the present by alternating chapters of Then and Now We also get both Vee and Cam s perspectives throughout, all of which just makes everything intense and emotional and sweet and heartbreaking and heartwarming Aaaahhh So much FEELING in this book, and the song writing and performing just adds to it all I was also impressed with the pacing of how information about each character was revealed through both timelines I sympathized with both [...]


    • Love, music, heartbreak and reality tv come together in this absorbing story Alternating between the past and present of both members of a fractured relationship, Love Songs Other Lies is a sweet, funny and, at times, sad story about first love.


    • I received an ARC sample of this book from NetGalley I LOVED this sample and I can t wait to read the rest of the book I don t know if I can hold out until next year I love books written in first person alternating between the two main characters and this book was exactly that Vee and Cam seem like really great characters and I can t wait to read their entire story.


    • That was so good I seriously loved the characters, the story, the writing, all of it Exactly my kind of story Can t wait for others to read this wonderful debut Review to come


    • Amazing I loved the romance, the songs, the then and now storytelling It had so many feels I definitely teared up at various sad and happy points.


    • This one started off really slow for me and I was worried that even though it had all the things I love in a story that it wouldn t work for me But something happened around the halfway mark, probably around the time that secrets started to be revealed, I became invested I grew to love these two characters, Cam and Vee, and really hope and pray that they d find their way back to each other I ve never been a fan of the big secret trope in books but I do love second chance stories so in the end th [...]


    • I was lucky enough to read an advance copy, and I loved this book It s all about first love and music and touring with a band and healing from tragedy SO MANY FEEEEEEELS For some reason, the whole storyline from both Cam and Vee s perspective made me think of the song Amnesia by 5SOS one of my favorites because of its raw heartbreak, full of regret If you like teen romance with a side of angst, this is the book for you


    • I loved this book sooooo much It made me swoon, it made me sigh It made me laugh, it made me cry And I didn t want it to end If you re looking for a YA romance that will tug on every heartstring you have, then this is the novel for you


    • I made a mistake when I chose this Yes, you read that correctly Let me explain I was looking for something to read, something light and easy, in order to fall asleep Joke was on me, because I was hooked after one chapter And I didn t put the book down until I d finished The whole thing, that is I didn t know much about this going in Just that it was a second chance romance Friends to lovers to enemies to lovers And since those are my favorite tropes SOLD I cared about nothing else It s no surpri [...]


    • I read the first 2 chapters of this book in Buzz Books 2017 Fall Winter and I am HOOKED I cannot wait to finish the book when it comes out The authors use of imagery makes you feel like you are right there with the characters I can t wait to see where the story goes So excited for this book


    • A YA book that is a delight for all ages I fell in love with these characters from the very first page The story is told over two different timelines and is unveiled masterfully.


    • Read the first chapter Already hooked, trying to riddle out what path I ll be going down with Cam and Vee Plus the reality show part of it is intriging.




    • I read an excerpt from Buzz Books 2017 Young Adult Fall Winter via Netgalley This sounds like a good contemporary read I liked what I read so far.


    • I loved this book so much It was the perfect blend of a summertime first love a rock n roll second chance This book gave me all the feels, and I read it pretty much in one sitting I thought the dual POV and the alternating timelines was done SO well, and these characters were so real and dear to me I was rooting for them the whole time If you like feel good romances, music, and a whole lot of heart this book is for you


    • I received an E ARC of this book which will be released 4 2018.This book was great I loved the two main characters and how they had their flaws made them much endearing I really enjoyed that it was a battle of the bands reality show and that they were on tour I felt a whole range of emotions reading this book I laughed, cried, got angry, cheered the characters on, etc If you like swoon worthy, contemporary romance, I really think you ll love this book I definitely recommend it.


    • I got this as an ARC from the ALA conference in Chicago Can I just say, I FREAKING LOVE THIS It was great Very real, and had raw emotion, amazingly developed characters, and was well written I loved how it flipped flopped chapter to chapter from then and now I really connected with both Vee, as well as Cam And I loved that she was always worried about being abducted, thrown in a trunk, and end up on a missing poster Because I think like that too Lol But really, I was quite happy with this book I [...]
