    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 with Type 1 Diabe

    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 unlikabl

    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 bee

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. 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 with Type 1 Diabetes Such heavy potential right there which unfortunately kept at being all potential none kinetic I just dropped some Physics right there Recognize peopleBecause apart from protesting about carrying a big bag containing her diabetes paraphernalia You don t understand It s forever Kate is reeling from getting dumped by her Princeton bound Obama wannabe boyfriend for a cheerleader She really needs a distraction from all that heartache and responsibility to keep herself alive And that s where AidanAiden comes in Who also needs a distraction from the things that he s actively avoiding from doing like figuring out what to do with his life now that he s a veteran At nineteen Or visiting the widow of the guy who ended up dead beside him when his arm was blasted off And he really needs someone to say to his face that he has one arm which Kate luckily loves doing while not telling AidanAiden her condition And from there you can pretty much surmise where things will go and how things will pan out This was told in alternating POVs between Kate and AidanAiden in a back and forth manner which is never my favorite storytelling device because it doesn t necessarily serve the progression of the story best but just feels like something done for symmetry This is my first read form this author and the writing wasn t exceptionally good but wasn t offensive either Oh wait the sheer number of times or something was usedabused as sentence filler 27 if you re curious Yeah not offensive but cringe worthy nonetheless The dialogue was okay though if I was a seventeen year old girl I d probably be offended by Perry s interpretation of a girl from that ageNow I really really need to be careful here because it is so easy to point the blame at Kate for dragging the story down with her immaturity and selfishness refusing to face the gravity of her disease From the 33 year old vantage point taking shots of insulin everyday indefinitely versus I dunno life altering end organ damage andor certain death that s really not up for discussion However from someone as young as Kate I think I can remotely understand some of her bitterness on her first world problems I can t imagine one of those How awkward would it have made Aidan Some electronic thing strapped to me A small tube inserted in my skin I shudder at how weird and gross that would be Attached Emphasis on the SOME and the REMOTELY And the rest really was completely ridiculous The kind that makes you want to reach into your reading device and smack her senseless She thinks having a disease makes her feel gross I suspect this has a lot to do with the lying down on the public bathroom floor Ewww to administer her insulin because she s scared of needles but knowing Kate s logic about her condition who really knows She has some insatiable need to make herself out as a victim when she doesn t need to And I m not sure someone who doesn t even have any sense of life preservation should be having sex at this point of emotional maturity I mean perish the thought this girl gets pregnantIf this is believable realistic behavior for a seventeen year old is debatable because the only seventeen year old girls I know right now are all book characters who have either survived dystopian conditions or FUBAR families And I think this is where the book falters a lot Kate wasn t made into anybody else but the diabetic girl moping about her condition flirting with the one armed guy That even when AidanAiden recognizes Kate s immaturity and the book relies heavily on that precedent to excuse her behavior even when it better serves to contrast Kate s growth as a character I just can t understand or sympathize with her Even if she s a not really so young girl with her whole life ahead of her burdened with the responsibility of proactively keeping herself alive That is still asking for far too much from me I don t know if it was Kate s terrible character that made AidanAiden the better half of the story Although I m wondering view spoiler the morning after they had sex the first thing he does is take a phone photo with Kate hide spoiler The Apple Bandit (Nancy Drew: Notebooks, getting dumped by

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 Tokyo Kill 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 Unbroken The Reaper Diaries 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 Bhishma an Enigma girls who rolls her eyes or referring to the The Art of Loving girls as a Jack Kerouac group I m one of the Reputation galley and all of this could be fixed by the time the final version is published

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. 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 Kate at all She was your typical YA heroine and I was just like yeah yeah whatever she s not too bad I can deal with her And then I started to see her annoying selfish side when she doesn t take her medication and argues with her mum and dad when they ground her and take away her car because her health is in dangerNow I can understand where Kate is coming from She s been diagnosed with type one diabetes and she just wants to be normal like everyone else so she pretends that she doesn t have it What I m frustrated with is that she never ever thinks about the conseuences of her actions such as not taking her medication and how serious her illness is until Aidan confronts her about it and she s suddenly like oh My illness is actually serious I could die Wow I m probably being insensitive about this but it just feels as if she suddenly realised all this and gets her act together only because Aidan found out and was disappointed with herAidanAidan was a slightly better character than Kate though in my opinion still kinda bland Aidan lost his right arm when he was in the army and unlike Kate who wants to pretend everything is normal Aidan is frustrated with how everyone is treating him like he is normal You would think that due to Kate s illness and Aidan s disability that they would help and balance each other out but since Aidan only finds out about Kate s condition at the end of the book it s mostly just Kate helping Aidan overcoming his issue with his lost arm and even that was just skimming the surfaceI also felt that while Aidan and Kate s attraction to each other was developed decently it could ve been developed further before they realised they had feelings for each otherOther charactersThe secondary characters are all uite flat and one dimensional to me such as the ex boyfriend Sheldon that name just reminds me of Sheldon from Big Bang Theory and lets just say it s not good who is presented as this neat organised preppy dude like it s a bad thing and apart from Kate telling me how she misses the way he stares at her I don t even know why she liked him in the first placeThe best friend Jen wasn t developed any further than her basic purpose which was to hook Aidan and Kate together and uh yeah this is the same with Kate s sister and Aidan s mother where their main purpose is to push those two togetherThis is not a terrible book but I don t think it s a memorable one Comparing this to Something Like Normal which is also a contemporary love story about a guy who gets discharged from the army The summer I found you I never once got the summer vibe pales in comparison But yeah if you re bored still check this outI received this book in return for an honest review via Netgalley
