All they have in common is that they're less than perfect And all they're looking for is the perfect distractionKate's dream boyfriend has just broken up with her and sh. See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsMini ReviewMy belief is that if you want to write an effective story about fatal illnesses you don t want your story to be too short I feel that 250 pages is too short for a book that deals with these types of topics as they do call for detail and emotional build ups The Summer I Found You held a lot of potential though was failed by the execution Read lack of depth and unlikable narratorI loved the idea of a girl with Type 1 Diabetes and a guy with only one arm coming together though I knew it was going to be extremely hard to nail down seamlessly Ever since Kate was diagnosed with diabetes she feels annoyed at everyone for treating her like a fragile glass doll Afraid to hurt her always checking on her because of her diabetes She s sick of it She doesn t want to go to the doctor for check ups she s sick of all the empathetic looks I liked Kate at the beginning she seemed like a convincing teen who just wanted her life back But when she started recording different numbers for her blood pressure onto her notebook for her doctor my opinion of her flipped She clearly does not now how fatal diabetes can get without the correct treatment She thinks if she can fool the doctor and her parents she ll be able to fool her illness as well Even when her parents get worried sick her motives do not change Kate darling use your brain while you still can diabetes is no joking matterThe romance was pretty half hearted as well I did not feel the chemistry at all I wanted of a build up or something that could make it realistic I found myself skimming most of the romance parts because it was not the slightest bit fascinatingOverall a really dissatisfying novel with poor characters romance and depth I wouldn t recommend it Thank you Albert Whitman for sending me this copy

The Summer I Found You

E's still reeling from her diagnosis of type 1 diabetes Aidan planned on being a lifer in the army and went to Afghanistan straight out of high school Now he's a disable. So I ve spent the last four hours reading this entire book and wondering a few things1 Is it Aidan or Aiden Seriously This is so obvious it s not even Writing 101 It s like Common Sense 101 You should know how to spell your own character s name2 Did this book not have betas Because it has legitimately the worst grammar and punctuation I ve seen in any book ever Someone teach Jolene Perry how to use a comma and apostrophes and uestion marks and proper sentence structure eg I m one of the girls who roll her eyes every day they wear their cute little uniforms This sentence should be either referring to the speaker herself I m one of the girls who rolls her eyes or referring to the girls as a group I m one of the girls who roll their eyes And I m not just being picky here there were so many sentences with such poor wording that I had to read them twice or three times just to figure out what they were trying to say I realize that what I read was a galley and all of this could be fixed by the time the final version is published but I sincerely doubt it Galleys should not have even been sent out with the book in this condition You know that feeling that you used to get in high school when you had to critiue someone else s paper and all you wanted to do was rewrite every other sentence to make it flow better and actually you know follow the rules of the English language That was how I felt throughout this whole bookAnd 3 What is with that cover It s not relevant to the book at all Neither for that matter is the title The book does not even take place in the summer It takes place during the school year because how else would we have been forced to sit through the totally traumatic experience of seeing Kate s ex boyfriend with his stereotypical new cheerleader girlfriend or the actually traumatic experience of visualizing Kate lying on the disgusting school bathroom floor poking herself with a needle For a girl who complains about feeling gross because she has a disease she sure didn t seem that horrified to be basically guaranteeing herself an infection of some kind by getting the needle that close to all the bacteria that s definitely partying down thereThese things aside though it really is difficult for me to brush off the grammar thing the book was okay The story was not bad but the execution was Kate and AidanAiden were both self absorbed but what bothers me the most is that Aidan is self absorbed in a way that makes it seem like he is that way because of how much he cares for someone else and Kate is self absorbed in a way that makes you want to slap her We re supposed to believe that AidanAiden won t go see his sergeant s wife because of how much he thinks he failed him or her but in reality he won t go see her because he doesn t want to be reminded of it Or at least that s what I got out of it I just why attempt to give the male character an excuse for his selfishness but not the female character This way it just gives people a reason to blame the girl for the book s failures People now get to say that she was annoying and whiny and narcissistic view spoiler God what kind of person avoids her problems to the point where she ends up in the hospital How shallow that she won t consider an insulin tube because of the way it looks Kate stop being so horrible and tell him the truth Stop doing this to your family hide spoiler

D young veteran struggling to embrace his new life When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get attached But could they be right for each other after all. olene Perry is one of those authors where if she writes a book I must read it own it and sniff it So I was so excited when I finally got my hands on a copy of The Summer I Found YouAt first I thought the book was going to be a little weird for me Reading about a guy who lost his arm and a girl with diabetes and their budding romance had me a little on edge How could a one armed guy possibly be sexy How was this book going to keep me interested Well I didn t even need to ask those uestions because they never crossed my mind once I was actually reading the bookKate is a terrible girl She just found out she has a life threatening disease and she can t be responsible enough to take her insulin or eat right She is setting herself up to die and I can t find it in me to feel sorry for her Her top priority is worrying about her ex dumping her Not that fact that she could slip into a diabetic coma at any secondAiden is awesome Aside from the whole PTSD thing But would you really expect a guy who lost his arm and a good friend to be okay To me he seemed pretty good for a guy who went through hell and back He lost his career his future his motivation but he survived in the end He is kind caring and all the things that I don t think Kate deserved at first But they worked together so well and I am glad they found each otherI really loved how the book combined such trivial high school things with some very tough choices and lifestyles On on hand I can understand Kate just wanting to live a normal life but on the other hand I can t condone her lack of self preservationThe ending had me worried for a little bit but I am glad it happened the way it did Kate needed a wake up call and I think Aiden was the only one who was able to do that for her Which is uite sad considering they hadn t known each other that long When your FAMILY and FRIENDS cannot convince you to save yourself then you really need to rethink your priorities in lifeUpdate 6292015 I have been thinking about this book a lot lately I adore the author and I love her work so her books are always popping into my head Last night I was thinking about how I have a few different illnesses but most of them I can hide because they are inside I feel like Kate thought she could hide her disability and get away with it which technically she could But it wasn t right of her to do that Aiden can t hide his disability I am torn between right and wrong here I don t normally tell people about my ailments unless they ask or if my one visual ailment is present Oh the one hand I completely understand wanting to hide your flaws But on the other hand Kate was getting into a relationship with a guy who she could somewhat relate to in terms of disabilities But she didn t and I can t fathom why Internal conflict aside I truly think everyone should read at least one of Jolene Perry s books They are always deep and beautiful and they have such horrible trials that each character must over some Her books are very inspiring I know they inspired meOverall I gave the book 55 kitties

    25 STARS Something Like Normal was easily one of the most enjoyable New Adult books I've read this year and I was fully under the impression that this will be following a similar vein but with heavier emotional heft as the hero AidanAiden it varies Connelly not only suffers from PTSD but also lost an arm from his tour in Afghanistan and the heroine Kate Walker a distant family acuaintance was recently diagnosed

    I've been teetering between rating stars since I read it There wasn't anything really wrong with it I just didn't fall in love with the story I couldn't really get into the characters This is dual perspective so we get a good feel of what's going on inside each of their headsKate was diagnosed with diabetes a year prior to the start of this book and it's been a big adjustment for her The one person that has been with her throug

    Actual rating 25 stars This book is actually uite a hard one to write a review for because on one hand it's not a bad book but I don't particularly like it either because I couldn't connect with the characters and the entire story is just kinda like bland pasta not terrible enough for you to hate it but also doesn't leave a good impressionNow lets talk about the charactersKate At the start I didn't really mind
