read & download First Then

T into her PE class and then into every other aspect of her life Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights in this contemporary novel about falling in love with the unexpected boy with a new brother and with yourself I m sad I didn t enjoy this to its maximum potential because I adore the person who wrote it Emma is so hilarious and genuine and articulate in her youtube videos and I ve been watching her since middle school Her book however I m not a huge fan of She s a talented writer because she s SO incredibly smart but this book had no drive There was no real plot to it and it almost felt as if the wrong person was telling the story It focuses heavily on a character that s not the main character and reading about him from an outside perspective was boring I found myself struggling to get through this around page 100 I considered a DNF but pushed through This book is filled with football terminology football games football players football parties etc and I was extremely bored by that as well I see the potential in Emma s writing and characters since some bits and pieces did come together to make a uite touching story but this is one of those contemporaries that are just light and happy and angsty and I m not a huge fan of them any so I was just waiting for something interesting to happen but it never didI hear her newest one coming out later this year is really good and so since I love her I m going to give that one a try as well But this one wasn t my cup of tea

First Then

Devon Tennyson wouldn't change a thing She's happy watching Friday night games from the bleachers silently crushing on best friend Cas and blissfully ignoring the future after high school But the universe has other plans Actual rating 25 stars because Ezra In the end I got the impression that First Then was trying to address way too many issues without really giving them the time of a day Cut off the Darcy ish romance slooowly built that I genuinely enjoyed with the important exception of one of the most anticlimactic ending I ve ever read Ugh just ugh the reader makes its way in a widespread confusion You ve got truthful WTF moment where you realize that you have no idea what the characters are doing think scenes cut short weird transitions a general WHERE DOES THAT EVEN COMES FROM feeling and characters who pop up from nowhere You ve got important issues that aren t addressed properlyleft unresolved in a nutshell a mum in rehab maybe I guess a teenage pregnancy what is the point of Marabelle s character really a weird gambler survivor guy don t get me started about that Emir guy who is this person and why should I care for him Huh a crazy asshole who puts a psycho move when it s convenient but we know nothing about him whatsoever and guess what it isn t handled at all either an attempt at girl friendship resolved in two pages how to deal with grief completely superficial and lacking feels and big revelations that felt flat because they came out of nowhere None of these issues are properly dealt with You ve got flat characters whose names I didn t bother to remember except Cas the so called best friend whose name I do remember but whose personality I never saw not that I was interested in this jerk in the first place to be honest You ve got an uneven pacing and an uneven writing if that makes sense if some parts made me really smile others made me roll my eyes something fierce because HELLO cheesy lines especially in the first 30% that got me bored and the last 40% WTF and cheese blended together Yes I do realize that the only part that remains is the middle ish 30 60% Don t judge To be fair I did appreciate Devon s growth toward her cousin Foster who s been living with her family since the beginning of the story If I wanted to slap her at first she started opening her eyes wider and slowly slowly became aware that fitting in wasn t the only life goal we could pursue Good for you girl Note that I didn t hate her I mostly felt indifferent to her to be honestAs I did appreciate several of Devon and Ezra s non interactions because I have a soft spot for guys who have the communicating skills of a turtle I really do Don t ask Too bad everything felt flat and cheapened in the whole mess that was this novel Sorry I guess I m just mad I hate when the last thought that comes to my mind after closing a book is WHAT WAS THE FUCKING POINT You don t add important issues to a story only to let them hanging in the air somewhereview spoilerAnd you do NOT ruin a kissing scene I was looking forward to read hide spoiler
