Love and Leftovers by Sarah Tregay Book Review:

Love and Leftovers

My wish
is to fall
cranium over Converse
in dizzy, daydream-worthy love.

                                                      (If only it were that easy.)

When her parents split, Marcie is dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father. By the time Labor Day rolls around, Marcie suspects this "vacation" has become permanent. She starts at a new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up.

But understanding love, especially when you've watched your parents' affections end, is elusive. What does it feel like, really? Can you even know it until you've lost it

This book wasn't what I was expecting I was expecting something I was going to absolutely love but it was just one of those books you read and get the same feeling if your reading it or not. I was dissapointed a little because Sarah Tregay is a great author but the book wasn't for me.

This book was about a girl named Marcie who used to live in Idaho but her parents forced to live in a new place (New Hampshire). She did not like the idea of being in New Hampshire and wanted to go back to her normal life to see her friends and her "emo" boyfriend. She had to start a new school with new people and she met this guy in which she got interested and had some relationships for him. But then her mom found something out and sended her daughter back to Idaho and she at first wanted to stay at New Hampshire and then some conflicts happened when she returned but then it all came back to normal.

This book was too obvious I always knew what was going to happen. I always like books were I never know what to expect but I have to say this isn't the worst book I have read but is not the best one either is in between. I would have liked if the book have had a better plot and have had a better unexpected ending were I would have been left thinking. After I finish the book I was just like this is over and kept thinking what if the author would have change some things would it have been better. This book is something you should read when you feel like reading a really really light book that is obvious.

I give this book 2/5 :S , I would only recommend this book if your never scared to read a book after a not so great review. I mean everyone is different I might have not liked this book but someone else might love it. YERP. Just saying.

                                                   Not really for me... 

P.S. Leave a comment about anything related to this book... :D

  3. Does this count as your Follow Friday "love the cover, but hate the book?" Although I guess the cover isn't that great ;-)

  6. I never liked predictable books. Except if they had an awesome cast because it's characters which spice up a story. There are some books that handle cliches and tropes very well and I'm sorry to hear this wasn't one of them.

    Nevertheless, thank you for your honest review, Hida :D New follower here :D
