She has every right to hate me, of course: I broke Patrick Donnelly's heart the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. Now I'm serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college and be done.Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn't finished. I'm expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it's just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. "For what it's worth, Molly Barlow," he says, "I'm really glad you're back."Day 12: Gabe wouldn't quit till he got me to come to this party, and I'm surprised to find I'm actually having fun. I think he's about to kiss meand that's when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who's supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who's never going to forgive me.

I‘m a big fan of epically poor decision-making, love triangles, and childhood friends to lovers, so this book was tailor-made for me. I flew through it and immediately ordered the sequel. I love the addressing of double standards when it comes to slut-shaming, I love how the ending doesn‘t tie up neatly in a bow. I wish we‘d gotten more resolution to the protagonist‘s horrible mother storyline but that‘s really the only complaint I have. 8/10⭐️

Prompt: Summer Love

The tagged book makes a great beach read and explores summer love and several other interesting topics. I did want to strangle the MC for the way she acted. So immature even when taking her age into account.

Overall not a terrible book. Character development was lacking - as seems to be the trend lately with these books - every character has the same personality, except for the bully who is obviously a bully. The main character puts herself down repeatedly while continuing to do the exact thing she puts herself down for; messing around with two boys - brothers. Storyline was predictable. Blah!

It eventually got... meh. Had to push myself to finish it. There are good parts, just not enough. The characters had me rolling my eyes over and over again.

This novel is full of difficult characters. None of the main players are people with whom I‘d want to align myself. They‘re all immature, selfish, & shitty to one another - which made for some hard reading. The dedication reads, “This one‘s for the girls.” It might be. There are important lessons about double-standards & sticking up for yourself. But... (cont‘d in comments below👇🏻):

monalyisha 1/1: ...there are also lessons about personhood, & womanhood especially, that I want to SHOUT at Molly, at Julia, at Elizabeth, at basically everyone: Be open. Be communicative. Be kind. Stay soft. Heart on your sleeve. Brain in your head. I did like the ultimate message: “Sometimes it‘s hard to remember that your hometown isn‘t the only place in the world.” And I did stay up until an ungodly hour to finish reading it so... I guess there‘s that. (edited) 2y

This book is hard. I have very little tolerance for infidelity. I... trust Katie Cotugno, though. I think? Maybe she‘s about to make me a lot less judge-y? Right now, I just feel frustrated and disappointed... and okay, okay, maybe a little bit angry.

Clwojick Kind of how I'm feeling about my current read. It's written well, though a little crude at times, but I'm not liking the main character at all. I had wanted to read it though, because I loved his writing in The Alchemist... I'm with you on the whole infidelity thing. 2y

I had a very strong love-hate relationship with this book. It's about a girl who cheated on her boyfriend with her boyfriend's brother. Kind of messed up really!! But it breaks my heart because every chapter makes me want to know more about what happens next and I'd cried every chapter. The ending tho 😫😭 FULL REVIEW ON MY BLOG, LINK IN BIO!! #bookworm #bibliophile #bookreview #99Days #KatieCotugno

I have finished the book not too long ago and my take for it, if it were not so well written, I would have put the book down. Molly Barlow comes back after a year her mom published a book about her affairs and everyone is looking at this girl as if she had a big red A on her chest and rightfully so because the bitch cheated again with the same people. But I guess that's how it is not so cliche. I mean it is, but in a way you wouldn't expect it.

MrBook They can't all be winners, great review though! 2y

Despite hating love triangles, I ended up enjoying this book. Ugh the mistakes and choices Molly made had me cringing and wishing I could give the girl some solid advice.I hated the double standard and hate that girls are always label the slut in these type of situations.

In honor of shark week I'm wearing my awesome shark socks for Sock Sunday. I also picked up some more books from the library today.

CatLadyBibliophile Those socks are AMAZING 😍 Where did you snag them if you don't mind my asking? 3y
That-Bookish-Hiker @CatLadyBibliophile I ordered them online from Urban Outfitters. I don't know if you can tell but the shark is biting a swimmer lol. 3y

I really enjoyed this for how messy and true it was, and especially because the ending was so untidy. It was weird to read about a girl named Molly who grew up in a town with a name similar to my own, but I had no complicated drama with hot brothers in HS.

This book was killer! Our emotions can lead us into making some catastrophic decisions! Ones that are completely reckless and selfish- ones that can't be undone. So well written- brutally raw! So glad I finally read it! Love Katie Cotugno!!

This is not an easy story to digest, but there is a great lesson here in the way of making mistakes and having to deal with the fallout. I cringed over many of the actions in this story, but I love the truth with which they are told.

bookmarklit Yes! Exactly. 4y
bookrockbetty I've been hesitating to start this for a loooong time! But I love her writing so much I should prob give it a go!! 4y
intothehallofbooks This was a reread for me-it was still tough with respect to different things happening in the story, but I just LOVE when books make me FEEL things and how super well written I think it is. I need to read How To Love ASAP. 4y
bookrockbetty I think ppl get upset over actions of characters, but forget that people are douches in real life and DO make mistakes and frustrating choices. That's why I love Katie! She writes in such a brutally honest way that doesn't glamorize flaws! Read HTL! 4y
