Blog Tour: Click to Subscribe

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to present my blog tour stop for Click to Subscribe by L.M. Augustine!

1,135,789. That’s how many subscribers sixteen-year-old West Ryder has on his web vlog series. But he only has eyes for one of them. 

As one of the internet’s most prestigious video bloggers, West talks about high school relationships under the name “Sam Green.” As far as he knows, no one from school, not even his best friend, Cat, has seen his videos. But the highlight of the whole thing is Harper Knight, who comments every day at exactly 2:02 in the afternoon. He doesn’t know anything about her aside from the occasional deep philosophical messaging on why pizza tastes so delicious, but as stupid as it sounds, he might be falling for her. So when they finally agree to meet in real life, West’s hope for romance seems more and more in reach. But that all changes as soon as he arrives at their meeting spot and sees Cat walking toward him, wearing the same “I ❤ Sam Green” T-shirt Harper promised she’d have on.

To his alarm, West realizes he is falling in love with the best friend who has always been a sister to him.

My Review

As soon as I stumbled across Click to Subscribe I knew I would love it. Romance with a vlogger? Yes please! It’s quite refreshing to have a contemporary YA written from a male perspective. And some of the thoughts that go through West’s mind are hilarious. Him and Cat share a really cute relationship, and this really made the book speak to my nerdy, ice cream loving side.

That being said, West was so frustrating at times! Obviously realistic to what a lot of boys are like, but I just wanted to slap him for his stupidity. As such, a lot of the middle of the book is spent with him confused about his feelings, and dithering about. 

The only complaint I have is that it isn’t long enough! It is penned as a long novella rather than a novel in itself, and I just felt it didn’t allow for enough depth and character development. It only left me wanting more! I will definitely be checking out LM Augustine’s future books, in the hope that they are much longer.

Waiting on Wednesday #24

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we’re eagerly anticipating.

37 Things I Love (in no particular order) 

Ellis only has four days of her sophomore year left, and summer is so close that she can almost taste it. But even with vacation just within reach, Ellis isn’t exactly relaxed. Her father has been in a coma for years, the result of a construction accident, and her already-fragile relationship with her mother is strained over whether or not to remove him from life support. Her best friend fails even to notice that anything is wrong and Ellis feels like her world is falling apart. But when all seems bleak, Ellis finds comfort in the most unexpected places. 
Life goes on, but in those four fleeting days friends are lost and found, promises are made, and Ellis realizes that nothing will ever quite be the same.

37 Things I Love (In no Particular Order) by Kekla Magoon has a really intriguing cover, and doesn’t really match the blurb.

Due to be released by Macmillan in October 2013.
