Rewind & Review: February

Rewind & Review is a feature hosted by Ginger and Lisa, for whom I have mass amounts of love. I've been reading older books lately, so this feature came about at just the right time. I plan on reading and reviewing two books that were released awhile back this month, if not more. But I'm only going to feature two because honestly? I'm not good with commitment.

Gimme a Call by Sarah Mlynowski
Published: April 27, 2010
I loved Ten Things We Did, and I am sure this one will be no different. Can you imagine? Knowing the things you know now and being able to contact your younger self as a kind of weird, personal fortune teller? Not to mention TALKING TO YOURSELF is just flat out bananas. But as a teenager? Heck yes, I would do this. And I can't wait to read how this turns out!

Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
Published: March 17, 2009
I've read both Forget You and Love Story and did not like either of them. I know this makes me a horrible person, because EVERYONE loves J. Echols. This one seems to be a collective favorite, so I'm going to give it one more shot. Plus, she can write some seriously swoony scenes. This, I cannot deny. BRING IT.


  1. Going too Far is my favorite of her books. Hope you like this one!

  2. have hope, because I didn't like Forget You or Love Story either...but I LOVE Going Too Far :)

  3. I've heard not-so-great things about Love Story. But, I'm still going to give Forget You a whirl.

    Jen, you will love John After. Going Too Far is one of my all-time faves of Jen Echols. In fact, I don't think she could've done better after that *lol*

    And the swoon in this one. OH. MAMA. It's delicious.

  4. Going Too Far is my FAVORITE Echols by a mile, although I do like all her other books. None hold a candle to this one, though, and talk about BOOM IN YOUR PANTS! Sooooo good!

  5. I want to read Going Too Far someday soon too! I've only heard good things about this and the summary totally got me :)

  6. I still haven't read Going Too Far either, even though I've heard great things about it and it sounds awesome and I really want to read it. Looking forward to seeing what you think of it!

  7. I am beyond excited for you to be reading Going Too Far. A lot of people favor this one the most. (you know my heart lies with Forget You & a close second with Endless Summer & then followed up by Major Crush, ha!) Yes, I'm a J. Echols fan, what can I say?

    Yay for joining the new feature!

  8. Going Too Far is SO GOOD! It's my first Jennifer Echols read, but wow!:)

  9. I totally have Going Too Far sitting on my shelf. Everyone said I needed to read it while I was reading Love Story, but I just haven't gotten to it yet :[

  10. I didn't like Forget You at all!! But I liked Love Story and LOVED Going Too Far! I hope you like it.
    I need to read Gimme A Call too, I've had it on my shelf for awhile.

  11. Going Too Far is my favorite :) I really, really hope you like it!
