    Ok I'm sorry I really tried. DNF @ 42%. It is very very rare that I DNF a book, so I have some things to say aha. I don't mean to be so harsh but, like I said, it takes a lot for me to DNF a book... **Rant Ahead** This ARC is seriously stunning and the concept sounding so great a...

    Misschien is het heel vreemd om een boek op mijn blog te bespreken waar ik zo veel betrokken was bij het proces. Maar ik vond het boek zelf echt een aanrader en ik heb het immers ook gewoon gelezen. Ik heb het dan natuurlijk over Piper Perish van Kayla Cagan. Dit boek verscheen in maar...

    Piper Perish is a character you cannot help but root for! This book moved way more than I thought it would. I was expecting an entertaining read about an artist in peril, but instead I got engrossed in a story that felt so real. This is a story of the REALISTIC ups and downs in fam...

    ?Piper Perish? is the perfect book for the kids who are creative and ponder life?s big questions. It?s also great for the adults who once were those kids and probably are still the same as adults. I really wish there would have been a book like this when I was in middle and hig...

    I loved the synopsis for Piper Perish. It sounded really fun and the cover is beautiful so I was pumped. I was super excited. I was ready to read a cute, fun YA contemporary. However, this book was a massive disappointment. First off, I wasn't super into the writing style. It was wr...

    So Piper Perish is an interesting book. The cover is gorgeous and lines up well with the content of the book. Simply this book is about the last year of high school of Piper Perish, an artist trying to get into a prestigious art school in NYC. The writing style is very whimsical. I...

    A couple of lovely quotes: I love painting. I love drawing. I?m never let down, even when the picture isn?t exactly what I want. I can keep working on it. Paintings speak back. They argue. But it?s just because they still want attention. They aren?t done yet. They want t...

    With the exceptions of Kit and Phillip (and maybe Silas, though he was just an e-mail presence), I pretty much hated all of the characters. I should have stopped reading as soon as I realized this, but kept hoping something would happen that would redeem someone, even if it wasn't Pipe...

    Little Miss Perish is one of the coolest characters I have ever come to meet in a novel. She is talented, cool, quirky and fun. I found myself hoping I could?ve been cool enough to hang with her in high school. Cagan creates such realistic high school experience for the reader. The s...

    Unfortunately, this book was a miss for me. The synopsis made me really excited but to be honest that excitement died quickly. I did not like the characters one bit. Maybe it is because this book is written in diary format so we only get one side of the story. I honestly don?t kno...

    Piper Perish is a thoughtful, passionate, and page-turning story about a group of young artists who are stretching the boundaries of "what art means" as they simultaneously stretch the boundaries of their own lives. I should start by saying that author Kayla Cagan is a friend of mi...

    I liked the description and the cover of this from the start, and I had high expectations based on some of the really great contemporary YA that I have read over the last couple of years. But unfortunately this book did not live up to my expectations. It had cliche, stereotypical t...

    Ok I'm sorry I really tried. DNF @ 42%. It is very very rare that I DNF a book, so I have some things to say aha. I don't mean to be so harsh but, like I said, it takes a lot for me to DNF a book... **Rant Ahead** This ARC is seriously stunning and the concept sounding so great a...

    Misschien is het heel vreemd om een boek op mijn blog te bespreken waar ik zo veel betrokken was bij het proces. Maar ik vond het boek zelf echt een aanrader en ik heb het immers ook gewoon gelezen. Ik heb het dan natuurlijk over Piper Perish van Kayla Cagan. Dit boek verscheen in maar...

    Piper Perish is a character you cannot help but root for! This book moved way more than I thought it would. I was expecting an entertaining read about an artist in peril, but instead I got engrossed in a story that felt so real. This is a story of the REALISTIC ups and downs in fam...

    ?Piper Perish? is the perfect book for the kids who are creative and ponder life?s big questions. It?s also great for the adults who once were those kids and probably are still the same as adults. I really wish there would have been a book like this when I was in middle and hig...

    I loved the synopsis for Piper Perish. It sounded really fun and the cover is beautiful so I was pumped. I was super excited. I was ready to read a cute, fun YA contemporary. However, this book was a massive disappointment. First off, I wasn't super into the writing style. It was wr...

    *A copy of this book was provided to me by Raincoast Books* FULL REVIEW: http://alexatalksbooks.blogspot.ca/20... Piper Perish is for a younger audience. I'd recommend Piper Perish to young teens. Teens that yet to graduate high school or have recently graduated from high...

    So Piper Perish is an interesting book. The cover is gorgeous and lines up well with the content of the book. Simply this book is about the last year of high school of Piper Perish, an artist trying to get into a prestigious art school in NYC. The writing style is very whimsical. I...

    A couple of lovely quotes: I love painting. I love drawing. I?m never let down, even when the picture isn?t exactly what I want. I can keep working on it. Paintings speak back. They argue. But it?s just because they still want attention. They aren?t done yet. They want t...

    Piper Perish was an extremely fun read! The book is written diary style, and each day is random, loud and full of emotions. And also I enjoyed the little sneak peaks of art thrown in some entries. Our main character Piper, is an artist who has a dream of going to college in NYC. She sp...

    With the exceptions of Kit and Phillip (and maybe Silas, though he was just an e-mail presence), I pretty much hated all of the characters. I should have stopped reading as soon as I realized this, but kept hoping something would happen that would redeem someone, even if it wasn't Pipe...

    Just not for me. ...

    One of the best contemporary YA novels I've read in years. Kayla Cagan is an author to watch. ...

    I really wanted to like this book. Not just because I've had a great record with loving YA novels published by Chronicle Books. Not just because I share a fantastic first name with the author. It sounded so interesting, like nothing I'd ever read before. Unfortunately, there were more ...

    I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This is going to be kind of a ranty review because spoiler alert: I hated it. Maybe part of it is an age thing. Some parts of it may appeal to younger audiences because while I could relate to some things, most of ...

    Little Miss Perish is one of the coolest characters I have ever come to meet in a novel. She is talented, cool, quirky and fun. I found myself hoping I could?ve been cool enough to hang with her in high school. Cagan creates such realistic high school experience for the reader. The s...

    I hate that I didn't love this one - but in January, I was already pretty sure I wouldn't love it. I think this is a case of a reader and a book - just not destined to get a long. I found the story boring - I keep trying to imagine what I would tell someone the plot is and I think I...

    I loved this book! Fast, fresh, intense, raw, & real. This book has all the feels! Relatable characters and an urgent plot make it hard to put down. And the illustrations are amazing! ...

    Ik ben zeer goed verrast door dit boek. Eerst had ik geen flauw idee waar het over ging en later vroeg ik me af waarom ik het niet gewoon zou lezen. Het werd aangeboden als recensieboek en ik ben heel blij dat ik ja heb gezegd. Wat een heerlijk boek! Vlot geschreven waardoor ik alleen ...

    I have to say, this book was over the top. It managed to make me hate every single one of the characters in under 50%. The cover is gorgeous but don't let that fool you. The main character's voice irritated me down to my bones. So pretentious. So snotty. Marli, her sister and who was s...

    Wat een heerlijk wegleesboek. Voor het eerst sinds hele lange tijd een hoofdpersoon leren kennen met wie ik weer ontzettend kon meeleven. Komt er nog een deel 2? Want ik ben erg benieuwd hoe het Piper in New York vergaat! ...

    Ik wil meer en wel nu! ...

    3 1/2 I?ve got to admit that I am all over the place regarding Kayla Cagan?s Piper Perish. For the most part, I enjoyed the story of Piper who aspires to be the next Andy Warhol. She sounds like a typical high school student, although a very talented one, dreaming of a perfect ...

    Piper Perish is a character you cannot help but root for! This book moved way more than I thought it would. I was expecting an entertaining read about an artist in peril, but instead I got engrossed in a story that felt so real. This is a story of the REALISTIC ups and downs in fam...

    ?Piper Perish? is the perfect book for the kids who are creative and ponder life?s big questions. It?s also great for the adults who once were those kids and probably are still the same as adults. I really wish there would have been a book like this when I was in middle and hig...

    I loved the synopsis for Piper Perish. It sounded really fun and the cover is beautiful so I was pumped. I was super excited. I was ready to read a cute, fun YA contemporary. However, this book was a massive disappointment. First off, I wasn't super into the writing style. It was wr...

    So Piper Perish is an interesting book. The cover is gorgeous and lines up well with the content of the book. Simply this book is about the last year of high school of Piper Perish, an artist trying to get into a prestigious art school in NYC. The writing style is very whimsical. I...

    Piper Perish was an extremely fun read! The book is written diary style, and each day is random, loud and full of emotions. And also I enjoyed the little sneak peaks of art thrown in some entries. Our main character Piper, is an artist who has a dream of going to college in NYC. She sp...

    I really wanted to like this book. Not just because I've had a great record with loving YA novels published by Chronicle Books. Not just because I share a fantastic first name with the author. It sounded so interesting, like nothing I'd ever read before. Unfortunately, there were more ...

    I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This is going to be kind of a ranty review because spoiler alert: I hated it. Maybe part of it is an age thing. Some parts of it may appeal to younger audiences because while I could relate to some things, most of ...

    Little Miss Perish is one of the coolest characters I have ever come to meet in a novel. She is talented, cool, quirky and fun. I found myself hoping I could?ve been cool enough to hang with her in high school. Cagan creates such realistic high school experience for the reader. The s...

    Pages read: 6 This was very immediately not my kind of book. Piper Perish opens with Piper waking up and thinking she's blind because she fell asleep with false eyelashes on and they've glued her eyes shut. Then she talks about how there's glue and glitter on her eyeballs and my ...

    This is one of those books that I liked from the first page, and then quickly went downhill when I realized there wasn't much more to say. The characters were weirdly flat. Piper, for example, can be defined by her love of art and her obsession with Andy Warhol... an obsession that ...

    I have to say, this book was over the top. It managed to make me hate every single one of the characters in under 50%. The cover is gorgeous but don't let that fool you. The main character's voice irritated me down to my bones. So pretentious. So snotty. Marli, her sister and who was s...

    Unfortunately, this book was a miss for me. The synopsis made me really excited but to be honest that excitement died quickly. I did not like the characters one bit. Maybe it is because this book is written in diary format so we only get one side of the story. I honestly don?t kno...

    Ok I'm sorry I really tried. DNF @ 42%. It is very very rare that I DNF a book, so I have some things to say aha. I don't mean to be so harsh but, like I said, it takes a lot for me to DNF a book... **Rant Ahead** This ARC is seriously stunning and the concept sounding so great a...

    Misschien is het heel vreemd om een boek op mijn blog te bespreken waar ik zo veel betrokken was bij het proces. Maar ik vond het boek zelf echt een aanrader en ik heb het immers ook gewoon gelezen. Ik heb het dan natuurlijk over Piper Perish van Kayla Cagan. Dit boek verscheen in maar...

    Piper Perish is a character you cannot help but root for! This book moved way more than I thought it would. I was expecting an entertaining read about an artist in peril, but instead I got engrossed in a story that felt so real. This is a story of the REALISTIC ups and downs in fam...

    ?Piper Perish? is the perfect book for the kids who are creative and ponder life?s big questions. It?s also great for the adults who once were those kids and probably are still the same as adults. I really wish there would have been a book like this when I was in middle and hig...

    I loved the synopsis for Piper Perish. It sounded really fun and the cover is beautiful so I was pumped. I was super excited. I was ready to read a cute, fun YA contemporary. However, this book was a massive disappointment. First off, I wasn't super into the writing style. It was wr...

    *A copy of this book was provided to me by Raincoast Books* FULL REVIEW: http://alexatalksbooks.blogspot.ca/20... Piper Perish is for a younger audience. I'd recommend Piper Perish to young teens. Teens that yet to graduate high school or have recently graduated from high...

    So Piper Perish is an interesting book. The cover is gorgeous and lines up well with the content of the book. Simply this book is about the last year of high school of Piper Perish, an artist trying to get into a prestigious art school in NYC. The writing style is very whimsical. I...

    4,5 - ???? Piper, wat ben je leuk! En wat heb ik genoten ?! 4,5 - ???????? Piper, wat ben je leuk! En wat heb ik genoten ??! ...more ...

    A couple of lovely quotes: I love painting. I love drawing. I?m never let down, even when the picture isn?t exactly what I want. I can keep working on it. Paintings speak back. They argue. But it?s just because they still want attention. They aren?t done yet. They want t...

    Piper Perish was an extremely fun read! The book is written diary style, and each day is random, loud and full of emotions. And also I enjoyed the little sneak peaks of art thrown in some entries. Our main character Piper, is an artist who has a dream of going to college in NYC. She sp...

    With the exceptions of Kit and Phillip (and maybe Silas, though he was just an e-mail presence), I pretty much hated all of the characters. I should have stopped reading as soon as I realized this, but kept hoping something would happen that would redeem someone, even if it wasn't Pipe...

    Just not for me. ...

    One of the best contemporary YA novels I've read in years. Kayla Cagan is an author to watch. ...

    "Jij dacht dat Ronnie vis had gekocht toen hij zei dat hij platjes had,' zei Kit. 'En dan wil jij jaar helpen? Ik dacht het niet." ~ p9. Toen mij gevraagd werd of ik dit boek wilde recenseren hoefde ik geen 2x na te denken en was het gelijk een volmondig JA!!! Alleen de cover maakte...

    I really wanted to like this book. Not just because I've had a great record with loving YA novels published by Chronicle Books. Not just because I share a fantastic first name with the author. It sounded so interesting, like nothing I'd ever read before. Unfortunately, there were more ...

    I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This is going to be kind of a ranty review because spoiler alert: I hated it. Maybe part of it is an age thing. Some parts of it may appeal to younger audiences because while I could relate to some things, most of ...

    Little Miss Perish is one of the coolest characters I have ever come to meet in a novel. She is talented, cool, quirky and fun. I found myself hoping I could?ve been cool enough to hang with her in high school. Cagan creates such realistic high school experience for the reader. The s...

    I hate that I didn't love this one - but in January, I was already pretty sure I wouldn't love it. I think this is a case of a reader and a book - just not destined to get a long. I found the story boring - I keep trying to imagine what I would tell someone the plot is and I think I...

    I loved this book! Fast, fresh, intense, raw, & real. This book has all the feels! Relatable characters and an urgent plot make it hard to put down. And the illustrations are amazing! ...

    ugh! so much love for this crazy dramatic, crazy beautiful, crazy relatable story. Piper's voice is so strong, and i adored being surrounded by her world of art and her friends. full review up here! :) ...

    Piper Perish is a thoughtful, passionate, and page-turning story about a group of young artists who are stretching the boundaries of "what art means" as they simultaneously stretch the boundaries of their own lives. I should start by saying that author Kayla Cagan is a friend of mi...

    I liked the description and the cover of this from the start, and I had high expectations based on some of the really great contemporary YA that I have read over the last couple of years. But unfortunately this book did not live up to my expectations. It had cliche, stereotypical t...

    Ik ben zeer goed verrast door dit boek. Eerst had ik geen flauw idee waar het over ging en later vroeg ik me af waarom ik het niet gewoon zou lezen. Het werd aangeboden als recensieboek en ik ben heel blij dat ik ja heb gezegd. Wat een heerlijk boek! Vlot geschreven waardoor ik alleen ...

    I have to say, this book was over the top. It managed to make me hate every single one of the characters in under 50%. The cover is gorgeous but don't let that fool you. The main character's voice irritated me down to my bones. So pretentious. So snotty. Marli, her sister and who was s...

    Wat een heerlijk wegleesboek. Voor het eerst sinds hele lange tijd een hoofdpersoon leren kennen met wie ik weer ontzettend kon meeleven. Komt er nog een deel 2? Want ik ben erg benieuwd hoe het Piper in New York vergaat! ...

    Ik wil meer en wel nu! ...
