stars My head starts spinning to take the fair decision I loved the writing style, smart musical knowledge and intellectual references, I loved supporting characters and it was fast, easy, mostly sweet reading but I m reading You d Be Mine at the same time and that really confused the hell of me By the way there was nothing wrong about the book I could give this one four solid stars even though I couldn t connect with the protagonists and their insta romance But You d be mine was so sweet, swoony, emotional book and comparison part failed me a little So I guess, I m unfortunately stuck with my 3.25 stars and I m feeling pretty bad about it Especially after taking a quick look at the lovely cover and sighed for two minutes I think I held my breath too long from the look of my purplish face My husband already start to apply hemlich maneuver to me and I spitted out half bottle of Chardonnay, damn it Why didn t he let me choke in peace Here are the things I loved so much about the book Vada is not my favorite kind of heroine but I have to admit I loved to read her parts of narrationthan Luke And I also loved Vada s family parts I actually loved Phil and Vada s mom s romance partsreliable and entertaining I root for them even though they re supporting characters of the book and I wish they have their own sequel at some parts Of course it s so obvious to visualize my vindictive mind hated passionately from Vada s father yes, my ascendant Scorpio takes over control and keeps on typing the letters But let s turn back to the part why I became tough grader and lower my brownie points about this book Well, my main reason is only one word LUKE Sorry pal, the hero I dreamed to resonate cannot be found at this moment I didn t find anything interesting about him Only great things he is a British boy with charming accent I think the author emphasized his charmthan ten times at the book I found him a little artificial, spoiled, acting like the life dealt him the worst hand and he s whining about his supportive family and insists that they never understand him Look at this lovely drama king Romance parts of the book a little haphazard and I craved fortension, angst, some obstacles, nonsense drama scenes Maybe I have distorted opinions and I don t get used to read easy HEAs.Overall Of course I loved to readbooks of Erin Hahn I m already working on You d mine with a big smile on my face and butterflies twisting in my stomach This story was okay, too but I think I was expectedI don t love it too much but I also don t have any negative opinions, either Special thanks to NetGalley and St Martin s Press Wednesday Books for sharing this ARC COPY in exchange my honest reviews 4.5 stars, rounded up More Than Maybe , Erin Hahn s upcoming

passions.Vada has had a crush on Luke Greenly for a while It s not just his accent his family moved to Michigan from the UK when he was younger or his looks it s his soulfulness, his personality, and of course, the passion for music they share.Luke has always been partial to gingers so of course Vada catches his eye every time he and his brother record their podcast at the bar where she works But Vada s passion for music her music blog is one of Luke s obsessions fuels his crush on her.The two pair up for a senior assignment and they learnabout each other s vulnerabilities and ambitions, and try to fight the undeniable chemistry between them Vada wants to be a music journalist and Luke wants to write music but not sing it despite his musician father s desire that Luke pursue stardom he could so obviously achieve.When Luke s brother secretly releases a recording of Luke singing a love song he wrote, it sets off a ton of ripples that affect everyone And Vada isn t too embarrassed to admit she wishes he was singing to her.While the book took a little bit to hit its groove, I really loved it These characters were just so appealing and weren t overly erudite or sarcastic so they felt very real to me I read this until late the other night and was totally choking up in the dark I m a sap, so whatever I love the way Erin Hahn writes Her first book, You d Be Mine , was amazing, too Loved the mentions of that book in this one If you love books about music and love, here s one for you NetGalley and Wednesday Books provided me with an advance copy of the book in exchange for an

Vada Carsewell is a music blogger and is hoping to attend college out west after she graduates high school She works at Loud Lizard, a club that is owned by her mother s boyfriend, Phil Guess who records his podcast at the Loud Lizard Why Luke of course And Vada has a bit of a crush on Luke, and Luke has a bit of a crush on Vada Hmm. what s going to happen Vada and Luke had good chemistry which is always a huge plus The role music played in how they got to know each other enhanced the story Although boo to their opinions on Stevie Nicks One of the strengths of the novel was the story wasn t so dependent on romance instead the characters also had other things going on in their lives The author set up two interesting story lines involving Vada s relationship with her father and Luke s relationship with his dad It helped contribute to this being a cute story but with some substance.Thank you to Wednesday Books for providing me with an advance copy in exchange for an honest review This was a super cute read and this is seriously one of my favorite contemporary covers ever This book is perfect for any music enthusiast.This is a kind of confession, but I m the worst when it comes to music I can t carry a tune, and can t for the life of me remember lyrics I m the WORST So, much of the music related stuff in this novel, the YouTube references, singers, songs, etc went a bit over my head.But what I enjoyed the most about this book were the characters.Luke and Vada had such similar backstories, and complimented each other in a genuine way Also the supporting chara This book is

backstories, and complimented each other in a genuine way Also the supporting characters, Luke s family, his brother Cullen and best friend Zack, Vada s family, and especially Phil, made this novel full of likable and interesting characters There was no limit to how wonderful they all played off each other It was fun to see them interact with each other, and the many different dynamics that were part of each group.Overall, the writing was as wonderful as I remember in the author s debut novel Maybe some paragraphs feltlike fillers, they dragged a little and weren t actually needed in the overall storyline, but besides that I just love the author s writing style She describes things so authentic and with such an eye to detail that scenes are easily pictured in my mind.All in all More Than Maybe is a novel that will be a hit with many YA readers and especially music lovers.___________________________________I received a copy of this book from the publisher for free in exchange for

just wasn t having it The vibes that came off More Than Maybe were incredible but overall couldn t add to my enjoyment of the book The chemistry between vada and luke was about the cutest thing since Roomies or even Love Lettering The fact that they ve adored each other for three fudging years was literally everything it took for me to finally read this At last, we have a propper and relatable romance, where we can actually understand the infatuation with each other every average romance out there, cough cough, I m eying you What s happening.Be cool, hormonesa brief summary of the cuteness that is More Than Maybe, in which you can accompany two older teenagers balancing family life and self discovery while also trying to not act like total doofuses in front of each other If you don t

really nostalgic for me I really felt every moment of this book so ardently These characters were truly something special To say that they spoke to me would be a bit of an understatement I was so wrapped up in these characters and I loved them so much I loved that these characters had plenty of depth They have so many layers and the author really brings out their complexity I loved that the main characters had such tremendous growth in the story This book also has an array of secondary characters that really made things interesting I adored all the friendships and relationships in this book The romance in the story was very touching to me because the two main characters were so obviously perfect for each other The romantic gesture in this book by one of the characters is just so damn romantic that it makes my heart want to burst The two main characters are very attuned to one another They have such beautiful chemistry and the reader can t help but root for them The plot of the story really came together nicely All the ducks were lined up nicely and everything was executed perfectly in the story The story was very addicting I was so entranced that I read the entire book
