I’ve recently found that I haven’t enjoyed YA romance as much as I used to. However, All the Right Reasons was definitely an exception to this – as the romance for the main character was definitely secondary to the rest of the story.
When Cara and her mom are cast for a dating reality show, they go into the show knowing there’s a payout on the other end. What they don’t expect is producers meddling in budding relationships.
I really enjoyed reading this book – although a lot of the conflicts could easily have been solved with a little communication. The budding relationship between Cara and Connor was super sweet and honest, and seeing how Cara’s mom, Julia, was considering her potential suitors.
I did really like the ending. Although I did kind of guess the surprise twist, I still swooned and couldn’t read it fast enough.
Tokyo Ever After was a cute YA romcom/ coming of age story. It definitely had vibes of The Princess Diaries – which I LOVE – so I was hooked from the start!
Izumi is a Japanese American high school student who doesn’t feel like she really fits in – she feels like she’s too Japanese and not American enough. When she finds a clue to who her father is – she finds out he’s the crown prince of Japan – making her a princess!
But when she travels to Japan to get to know him, she finds she’s too American in Japan and not Japanese enough.
I really loved Izzy’s story about finding your family, finding yourself and finding where you belong.
I listened to Tokyo Ever After as an audiobook thanks to NetGalley and MacMillan Audio. The narrator was such a joy to listen to and really brought Izzy to life for me!
