Preview Review: Shuffle, Repeat by Jen Klein
This will only be a very short preview review, as I shall post my full one in a few weeks, for the blog tour. Thank you so much to Anna for letting me take part in it. I'm excited. When I started this book, I thought I would not like it, because I did not like the beginning. But I did not quit. And I ended up liking it lots. Truly.
The writing is pretty good, not the best, but I enjoyed it. I liked reading about June and her life as a senior. This book takes place over the whole school year, which I liked, though I wouldn't have minded it it had been a bit longer as well. I'm giving it three stars, because I had some issues with the fact that June had a boyfriend at the beginning of the book. It wouldn't usually have bothered me so much, but, well, June did not treat him right. I didn't like how she acted at times. But I did grow to like her a lot. So happy about that. And I loved the boy she drives to school with each day, Oliver, so very much. He's cute and fun. I loved getting to know him. And reading about him and June together was pretty fun, for the most part. I liked them.
Anyway. I just wanted to share a little bit about this book before I publish my full review in a few weeks. I liked it a lot, but I also did not love it, because of some small issues I had. But I am glad that I read it. And I very much treasure my print ARC of this book. It's so pretty. I do think you should all read this one. Because I ended up enjoying Shuffle, Repeat a whole bunch, and I'm sure you all will like it too. It was cute, most of the time, with a bit of drama. But nothing too big, and zero angst. I enjoyed reading this.
