    One thought on “Emmy & Oliver”

    1. Well, that s growing up, isn t it my dad said You don t always have to know And things aren t always fair You just have to keep moving forward A step in one direction Yet another book that has me wondering just what is going on in the book marketing design world With a title like Emmy Oliver and the heart shaped finger prints on the cover, pretty much everyone will pick this book up thinking they know exactly what they re going to get a cute romance In reality, this book is not a romance Maybe i [...]

    2. This is the type of story that could certainly have beneficed of a dual point of view Oliver is a main protagonist and at times it felt like everything revolved around him, so I m really perplexed Why did the author not decide to let him narrate from time to time, so we could scrutinize his indiscernible thoughts He just feels so elusive Emmy is a cute heroine I say cute because she s not original, or unique, or that interesting She s just nice and lovely and cute It s enjoyable to have her as a [...]

    3. Have you been looking for a non dramatic but yes, I did shed some tears emotional teenage girl right here YA contemporary that ll make your face hurt from too much smiling If you a nodded your head, b screamed FUCK YES, c gasped or d did all of the above, then Emmy Oliver is going to be your next favorite read To be honest with you, I initially thought that this book was going to be full of drama llamas and lyrical writing y all know I hate those , and I ve never been happier to have been proven [...]

    4. 4 stars Sometimes love isn t something you say, it s something you do Emmy Oliver is a book I picked up because I loved the simplicity and beauty of the cover I bought the audio before I even read the blurb, but I m glad I did I really enjoyed this one YA book 15 for me this year Only 10 to go before I hit my personal challenge Emmy Oliver s lives were both drastically changed when Oliver was kidnapped by his father as a child Oliver was taken away from his mother, his friends his life Emmy los [...]

    5. Well, that s growing up, isn t it You don t always have to know And things aren t always fair You just have to keep moving forward A step in one direction My eyes are still a bit moist from tears of both pain and joy after reading the last few chapters of the book And Wow Just I totally didn t expect to experience a whirl of emotions over this book Don t get me wrong This isn t a heavy, dramatic read In fact, even though there ARE heavy and serious themes, the author managed to magically approac [...]

    6. See reviews at YA Midnight Reads4.5 starsI d firstly like to point out that Emmy Oliver is a really misleading title While the title screams a romance dominated story, I would say it s anything but that Sure, there is a hella adorable romance but at it s core, Benway s story is one about friendship, growing up, making your own path in life, and importantly, family Sometimes love isn t something you say, it s something you do At it s surface, this book is about Oliver who is finally found 10 ye [...]

    7. I ve wanted to read this book for a long time I used to obsessively add contemporaries to my TBR, and for whatever reason, this one stuck even when I removed most of them And I m glad it did.It was, socially, on point Characters were against slut shaming and the not like other girls trope, as I enthusiastically noted about an hour and a half ago There were themes of acceptance and homosexuality and gender It was sick.The characters themselves were pretty great Emmy was actually funny sometimes I [...]

    8. All in all, here s an heartfelt story about family, friendship and what it means to belong somewhere, to grow up, without never hiding the hard truths and sore trials real life holds.What is it that creates a family A friendship Are labels enough Does calling someone a friend makes one I looked up at my dad Tonight, when Oliver and I were talking, I said I d still love you, even if you kidnapped me I really would I get how he feels My dad smiled That s the nicest and most sociopathic thing anyon [...]

    9. If I could describe this book in one word, it would be quiet.Yes, Emmy Oliver is something that I would call a quiet contemporary I m not even sure where that came from, or if it s a thing, or something I made up on a whim, but I know deep inside that this is the best word for it I try to think of another description, but there is nothing that fits as this Emmy Oliver is meaningful, thoughtful, and like I said, quiet.How is it so, you ask I ve read a number of contemporaries over the years, many [...]

    10. We stayed and looked and waited for him to come back, as if our love was a beacon that he could use to light his way home, to crawl up the sides of the earth and back through his front door, his tag still sticking up in the back.Emmy Oliver exceeded all expectations Although it may seem like this is a romance, the truth is it s actually about friendship, family, growing up and rekindling that long lost relationship that was horribly ripped away by one selfish man.When Oliver was seven, his fathe [...]

    11. Happiness comes in all shapes and sizes, but for me, it sthisbook ThisBBBOOOOOOOOKKKKKK Goodness, I m so trash for Emmy Oliver that itshouldbe embarrassing but like fav book dignity always So despite the cheesy yet adorable looking cover, this is notjustanother cheesy o l love story, let me tell you, no, no, it s a touching coming of age story that is fused with beautiful friendships, acceptance, and chasing your dreams.Literally wiping away my tears because I just love this book so much.The cha [...]

    12. This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea s Bookshelf.I really had no idea what book I was going to read next, and then Shannon from It Starts at Midnight suggested I read Emmy Oliver next because she liked it a lot So I did I mean I had an arc copy and everything, so why not just read it now It is also coming out, like tomorrow So I did, read it Emmy and Oliver have been friends from the day they were born yes, they even share a birthday Until one day Oliver was picked up from school by his [...]

    13. Rating 3.5 Review The you start to love someone, the you ache when they re gone, and maybe it s the middle ground that hurts the most, when you can see them and still not feel like you re near enough I appreciated that this had depth and did not focus solely on the romance between Emmy and Oliver They both had to deal with the aftermath of Oliver returning home after being kidnapped by his father for so many years Of course the adjustment was so much difficult for Oliver, almost impossible, [...]

    14. I guess the you start to love someone, the you ache when they re gone, and maybe it s that middle ground that hurts the most, when you can see them and still not feel like you re near enough So close and yet so far.Absolutely too cute for words Deep, heartfelt, unforgettable.Sometimes I could slap myself for being so shortsighted And, just to warn you, I ll probably even say that on tomorrow s review.I just have this mental block that prevents me from taking a risk, taking chances that might h [...]

    15. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss Coming home is like being kidnapped all over again, This was a YA contemporary romance, featuring a boy who came back after being kidnapped 10 years earlier.Emmy was a cute character, and she really went out of her way to be nice to Oliver, and to make him feel welcome when other people at their school treated him like an outcast He s sitting by himself I hissed Look at him, it [...]

    16. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum If you only pay attention to this part of the synopsis before beginning Emmy Oliver Oliver disappeared after school on a Friday afternoon, way back when we were in second grade There s a very good chance you might end up with this sort of reaction to this story Please note that this is VERY MUCH a kissing book and an extremely sweet one at that If you or your teen is looking for a new twist when it comes to the story of the boy next door, this might be a w [...]

    17. This is totally one of my NEW FAVOURITE contemporaries of ever I laughed so much OUT LOUD I was just cackling like an insane watermelon while I read this andI couldn t put it down I read WAY PAST MY BEDTIME I m such a little evil rebel So honestly For someone who is very dubious and skeptical about contemporaries and yet fell in love with this so so much IT IS VERY GOOD AND GO READ IT NOW THE END.Haha, I m just kidding Do you seriously think that s all I have to say collects 24039 pages of notes [...]

    18. Emmy Oliver is the type of best friend romance I would normally be clamoring head over heels fory, it s a liiitle complex than that Emmy and Oliver are not only neighbors, they re best friends They ve grown up alongside one another and for the first seven years of their life, they have shared everything, including their birthdays When Oliver s father arrives to pick him up after school one Friday afternoon, no one thinks much of it After all, Oliver spends every weekend with his father When he [...]

    19. i m surprised that i actually liked this but tbh how could i hate on a YA book that actually called out you re not like other girls RTC sometime in 2018 I was forced into reading this and I hope I hate it also why does every book have the Six of Crows font stop trying to be as good as SoC

    20. I adored this Robin Benway s contemporaries are seriously under appreciated If you re looking for something along the lines of Jenny Han or Huntley Fitzpatrick, look no further So lovely.

    21. Super sweet read I liked the how wholesome and innocent the teenagers were Their banter and camaraderie was very endearing I got choked up several times during this book, lol, but that s nothing new Hahaha

    22. I really REALLY enjoyed this contemporary I think it was the perfect mix of sad backstory and current happenings and gah it was just great.I enjoyed the characters a lot even though Emmy said dude too much for my taste, and it was really fun seeing them interact even though I could ve done with a bit development.My main qualm is that everything tied up a little too quietly, nicely, and quickly at the end Everything happened way too fast for me.But overall pretty freaking great Definitely would [...]

    23. An earthquake would have been better At least during an earthquake, you understand why you re shaking.An engaging and intriguing novel, not only exposing the everyday dilemmas of adolescence growing up by the sea, but also tackling serious, mature problems, and skillfully intertwining a most compelling mixture of psychology, friendship, diversity and light heartedness, that definitely help classify Emmy and Oliver as a very good contemporary.Ooh, I liked this It s one of those books that are ju [...]

    24. The you start to love someone, the you ache when they re gone, and maybe it s that middle ground that hurts the most, when you can see them and still not feel like you re near enough Wow This was such an emotional and moving story, and nothing like I had thought it would be This was definitely not a cute love story, at least not entirely focused on romance, which was the first impression I got when I read the blurb But this book was so much better Emmy and Oliver just became one of my top favo [...]

    25. 4.75.I loved this book, it took me awhile because of school which I think is why it s not a solid 5 5 I love all of the characters, Emmy, drew and Caro were hilarious This book had me cracking up even though it had its emotional moments I really liked the realistic idea of parents and how they actually were in Emmy and Oliver s lives instead off in some other dimension often done in YA at first I was going to give this book a 4 5 but the I thought about it the I realised I had nothing bad to [...]

    26. This is one of those books where you shouldn t judge it by its cover Because while Emmy and Oliver looks like a cheesy romance novel, it s actually heartfelt and touching that you d expect Yes, the romance is cute, but over this book is about family loyalty, the strength of friendship, and the importance of being true to yourself The main characters of this novel, Emmy Emily and Oliver, were best friends and neighbors until Oliver s dad kidnaps him when he s 7 years old Ten years later Oliver i [...]

    27. I m a Robin Benway newbie you guys I only read the AKA series in the last year and I absolutely loved everything about them, so when I saw that she had a new book coming out I knew I had to get my hands on it And after reading this one, I can honestly say that Robin Benway is now on my Auto Buy list The story of Emmy Oliver is complicated They were going to be best friends forever and who knows, maybe it could have been But before they even got the chance to see what life had in store for them, [...]

    28. I loved this book Emmy Oliver were best friends as children until Oliver was kidnapped by his father This story is about Emmy and her experiences when Oliver returns, after a 10 year absence I loved that this story was told in the first person from Emmy s point of view I think it might have been a mistake to try to tell both points of view and might have detracted from Emmy s great story.I thought Emmy s reaction to having Oliver back in her life was very realistic She was there for Oliver in a [...]
