Happy Monday, Reader Friends!
I hope you had a good weekend. We got some snow (it’s still snowing as I type this) and I snuggled up with a blanket and books. So I thought it would be fun to pop in and share a review of a book I read this weekend. Eye of the Beholder by Gracie Ruth Mitchell is a YA romance and one you need to pop in your TBR pile!
About the Book
One girl. One boy. One bargain…
Look, I’m no social butterfly. I don’t care what the extroverts say; talking to people is scary. I’d rather hang out with my books than actual human beings. Books don’t call you names or dump water over your head in the cafeteria.
But high school is almost over, and I’m realizing I have nothing to show for it but good grades. I need to come out of my shell if I want to get the attention of a certain football player, and I’m going to need help. My neighbor Cohen is the man for the job. Sure, his attractiveness makes me nervous, and yes, he smells obnoxiously good all the time, but it’s fine. I’ve got this.
I mean, probably.
I’ve probably got this.
Mina’s got a thing for my buddy Jack. I’ve got a thing for getting into a good college. My plan is simple: I’ll help Mina get Jack’s attention if she’ll tutor me for the ACT. No big deal, right? But working with Mina isn’t going to be easy. Her social skills are iffy at best, and don’t get me started on her (lack of) flirting skills. It’s a good thing she makes me laugh, because we’re going to be spending a lot of time together…
I loved everything about this book. The point of view, the hero, the heroine, the story line.
The author did a great job at putting me right in the head of Mina and Cohen. And I loved that it was both of their points of view written in first. I immediately connected with both of them.
Mina could be any insecure teenager. She reminded me a lot of myself when I was that age and the connection I felt kept me turning the pages.
But Cohen is an absolute great hero and definitely kept me around for all the feels.
Did I mention I loved everything about this book? If not, it needs to be reiterated. It made me smile, laugh out loud (and receive weird looks from my family), and smile some more. I may have gotten a little teary eyed with all the happy feels towards the end.
That’s all I’m going to say! Grab this book and enjoy some laughs and smiles.
*I read this book on Kindle Unlimited and loved it so much I bought my own copy for future rereading purposes. 🙂
