    2. This is why I read YA books to get this feeling of joy, of happiness, of love Because I simply LOVE feeling my head so light and having my heart skip a beat remembering how it felt to fall in love for the first time and every time after that.I really like stories like this, that get you through every stage of a young relationship that make you hold your breath for the romantic moments, for the first kiss that make you smile at all the silliness and cuteness of the couple that make you ache for t [...]

    3. UNPOPULAR OPINION HERE Samantha is a rich, perfect girl with the perfect life, body and shit She s got it all but a boyfriend Her neighbor is single, hot and ridiculously perfect She s been stalking admiring him from her balcony for evah HEY, IT S LIKE MEANT TO BE The thing is Mom hates the Garrets They re too many eight kids and those morons never heard about birth control so Sam will be in SERIOUS trouble if she fraternizes with the enemy.Life won t give her a break, though She is surrounded b [...]

    4. When I checked this book out at the library, my favorite librarian looked at me funny and said This is not a you book I told her that every once in awhile I want fluffy I can do romancy young adult.I think I should probably stick mostly with the serial killers and stalkersPrincess perfect Samantha lives a fairy tale life Her mommy is a politician who gained her throne through that handy trust fund Now next door to this paradise is one of those families The ones that never mow their lawn, have wa [...]

    5.

    6. I really enjoyed this Sam and Jase are SUCH great characters and I really enjoyed seeing them fall in love even if it was a little bit of insta love.A lot of things surprised me about this book, and it just gave me the warm fuzzies all the time I AM STILL SMILING So great So wonderful Bless.

    7. This book was worth waiting for I ve read it in two days despite the fact that I was head over heels in all that boring end of the school year paperwork that us, teachers, are so fond of First, I can not believe that this is Huntley Fitzpatrick s debut novel I ve read so many bad books lately and those autors didn t have the excuse of first attempt in their writing carieers My Life Next Door reminded me a lot of Sarah Dessen novels by the concept and the writing style And I love Sarah Dessen My [...]

    8. Rating 2.5 StarsEverything aboutMy Life Next Doorscreams summer chick flick From its flirty cover, to its sappy title, to its shockingly bright synopsis, you d think you couldn t go wrong with this book I was expected a Sarah Dessen type novel and what I got instead is something I can only relate to authors who I happen to loathe like Stephanie Meyer or Becca Fitzpatrick, even though they re not contemporary authors I think what pains me the most is that Ireallyliked the first half of this novel [...]

    9. I will be a son of a biscuit eater This was supposed to be my cute little fluffy book Okay, I will admit I loved, loved, loved the beginning of the book and pretty much to the half way mark I love Sam and Jase so much and I absolutely adore Jase s big family of 10 8 kids, 2 parents and another on the way Sam s sister was okay I hated Sam s mom and her moms young boyfriend, Clay that is helping her on her campaign on becoming a senator I hated Sam s best friend Nan and I loathed Nan s brother Tim [...]

    10. Why, thank you book for all these wonderful platitudes We need to part ways now though, at 35%, but don t worry, I ll compile here every amazing moment we shared together Remember when Jase and Sam fell in love over a lemonade at 9% Because I was there to follow their astounding banter and was deeply moved by the slow burn of their feelings He drains the entire thing in one gulp, then reaches for the other cup That s mine, I say Oh, jeez Of course Sorry I am thirsty I extend my arm with the lemo [...]

    11. Rating 4.95 brilliant, beautiful, breathtaking stars out of 5 FACT 1 I m not a contemporary girl I love paranormal books way than my realistic ones worlds that don t really exist enthrall me way than real ones do Because those supernatural books are usually badass, intense, and fun than everyday romances.FACT 2 My Life Next Door totally voids the first fact Where can I even start with how much I loved this book How much it took me surprise, grabbed my heart, and wouldn t let go This is NOTHIN [...]

    12. What an enjoyable young adult story Samantha is the daughter of the Connecticut s Senator and has lived next door the the large Garrett family for many years She watches them but never engages until the summer before her senior year when she meets Jase Garrett and his seven siblings Her mother is a real piece of work and not only looks down on the Garrett family but gets caught up with her new campaign guy Clay and lacks a lot of the important mom skills The author throws in a great cast of char [...]

    13. 3.5 Stars A fun and refreshing, sweet summer read The writing was fluid and wonderfully captured the essence of being a teen in a very realistic manner While the story didn t necessarily blow me away, it certainly held my interest and warmed my heart Samanthais a young girl who, at first glance, appears to have it all She s beautiful, wealthy, and has a determined mother in politics who keeps up a perfect appearance for their well respected family But Samantha isn t happy Because her motivated m [...]

    14. 4 1 2 Stars This was a 5 plus star read for me until the end, because there really wasn t one, or at least not one that satisfied me I only detracted a half a star, because the rest of the book was amazing I enjoyed the comparisons and stereotypes of two completely different families.Samantha is a sweet, determined young woman who is showcased, yet sheltered by her mother After many years of observing the family next door, she finally meets Jase, the third oldest in the Garrett clan He approache [...]

    15.

    19. Who are these people, and why do they think their own opinions are the only right ones My Life Next Door is one of those super adorable contemporary novels you d read if you want to pass the time I really liked it yet I had a few issues with it The plot has several themes, some of which are family, belonging, doing what s right The plot was also heavily centered around politics, which wasn t interesting for me I ve never cared about politics I don t understand it and it never interests me In thi [...]

    20. I remember being super excited for this book because Katie from Katie s Book Blog compared the level of awesomeness to Anna and the French Kiss And since AatFK is basically my favorite contemporary ever, you can imagine how high my expectation were Which is why I was so sad when I started the book and felt empty I didn t connect well with Samantha She seemed sort of detached to me Her voice wasn t very strong in my head while I was reading and that made me lack invested emotions in the book The [...]

    21. DNF at about 60%.Deceptive cover that raises misleading expectations and somehow draws comparison to ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS is deceptive.

    22. My Life Next Door is the kind of story that you expect to be light and fluffy but then it surprises you.I thought this book would be very clich little rich girl falls for the boy next door gets a whole new perspective on life through the eyes of a financially strained, but very happy unlike her own family and learns something big about herself over the course of one short summer In a lot of ways, that is what this book is about But, in truth, it is about so much .Samantha Reed s character is, I [...]

    23. 4.25 SHELTERED STARS Who are these people, and why do they think their own opinions are the only right ones Oh my god, this was soooo much better han I thought this was going to be That crazy plot twist at the end totally took me by surprise and changed the entire feel and setting of this book in a flash It changed from being slightly superficial to teaching real life lessons Reading this really makes you realize the importance of family, friendship, love, loyalty and doing the right thing in th [...]

    24. This book went from a 5 star read to a 1 star read I thought it would be about a romance A contemporary novel that usually explores the values of family, friendship, life etc.But by the end of the bookl I could think was, really what was the point of all that drama There were so many unresolved issues view spoiler i.e her friendship with Nan, what Tim would do, what was Sam s decision about moving, what would happen with her and Jace hide spoiler , and it made me frustrated view spoiler Clay or [...]

    26. OVERLOAD OF CUTENESS I give this book all the stars because I irrevocably fell in love with it.I m not a huge contemporary reader It s not that I don t like the genre, I would even say the opposite, but I don t read many contemporaries since I m often disappointed when I do For me, contemporary rhymes with strong friendships, slow burn romance and, obviously, family This book had all of this and it was so much better than I expected Honestly guys, it was just so good What I enjoyed the most is t [...]
