    If you?re looking for a poignant YA contemporary book, step away. I?ll direct you towards other new releases, such as A Girl Like That, I Have Lost My Way or Girl Made of Stars. But if what you?re looking for is for a read that is going to take your mind off of your finals...

    First of all, how gorgeous is this cover? Second, this was genuinely one of the most heartwarming novels I have read in a very long time, and I hope that every YA contemporary fan will pick it up and give it a shot! I hated when my dad gendered the stupid truck. To retaliate, I cal...

    This is everything I love about contemporary YA and look for in a summer read. It's like an adorable love note to LA, food, and families that ends with the most beautiful messages. Basically, it's one of those feel-good reads that's in no way forced or super cheesy (yay). Clara star...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || Pinterest DNF @ 15% Do you like nasty, selfish, intolerant, mean-spirited, self-absorbed piece of shit heroines who don't care about anyone but themselves and take a savage glee in making everyone around them miserable? Then...

    (sometime in 2017): I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THIS IS ABOUT BUT THE COVER IS SO WONDERFUL AND THE MODEL IS ASIAN AND I WANT IT NOOOWWWWW omg (after finishing): this book is a love letter to LA and so much more I'M SO EMO. i literally cried while reading it; it was so unexpectedly emoti...

    Thank you, Macmillan, for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. People who would be there for you even when you messed up and behaved like a jerk? They were the good stuff. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who noticed that people of color (e.g. Koreans...

    this is such a perfect summer read! i adored the characters and the story. clara, our main character, is refreshing in her brashness and confidence. one thing that i love about this book is that it shows a totally different type of asian american family that?s more relaxed as opposed...

    LOOK AT THAT COVER WOW ...

    Well, here's another book I semi-hated: the heroine was annoying, the plot and writing were juvenile, but there were some pretty realistic aspects (like the friendship), and the father/daughter dynamics made me cry at the end. Full review soon! Thank you to Macmillan for the revi...

    I got sucked in by that cover and the synopsis and couldn?t wait to get to it. I liked Clara. She?s quite an interesting character. She?s snarky and maybe a little rude, but there?s a lot of potential. I really enjoyed reading her grow from a bratty teenager to someone who ...

    4.5 stars This book is certainly more of a ?deep? contemporary, and it?s one of those YA romances that I love to read. Oddly enough, during the beginning of this book I was getting Lizzie Mcguire vibes. Clara and Rose?s hate filled relationship felt so catty and high schoo...

    I loved every INCH of this book. It's sweet and funny and full of pranks and pure joy. Clara has such a clear, distinct voice; there's no other character is YA lit like her right now, and I absolutely couldn't get enough. This book has real depth too - why we hold things at arms len...

    There are no white people in this story, first and foremost. Second: this is a really fun and funny read about friendships, about leaning into your real emotions, into family and love, and into finding your first true love (even if you're not able to say you love them). Totally a fe...

    In this huge city, there were three people in this truck who mattered a lot to me. I?d protect that little part of the universe for as long as possible. This book was so adorable? Think of the sweetest ice cream you?ve ever tasted and had some chocolate on top of it, that?s ho...

    The Way You Make Me Feel is one of the best YA contemporary romances I've ever read. It had everything I want from this genre: memorable characters, developed romantic and non-romantic relationships, diversity, a fresh premise and atmosphere. It's been a while since I've read a book t...

    The Way You Make Me Feel is an incredibly good and adorable read, full of yummy food descriptions, and it should definitely be on your summer TBR. I didn?t have very high expectations going into this book, since I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Goo?s previous book, was a 3-star...

    4.5 **I want to thank MacMillan Publishing and Ate Tin of The Book Maiden for hosting this blog tour and for giving me the opportunity to participate. This, by any means, did not affect nor influence my review. The Way You Make Me Feel took me by surprise. I have read I Believe i...

    4/5stars This was GREAT! I loved it! I'm so happy I ended up preordering it and reading it ASAP (even if it took me a bit to get through with how busy I was). The biggest thing I enjoyed was how completely different from her first book this was and how unique it was. I feel like ...

    i cant imagine loving a maurene goo book less than 5 stars. her style is just so in sync with everything i love! food, california, adorable dads, heart-warming friendships, sweet romances, characters who are just plain fun - she does it all!! ?????? ...

    I absolutely adored THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL! It was charming. It was sweet. It made me laugh. It (totally) made me cry. It was also surprisingly easy to relate to, especially considering the fact that Clara and I are very different people. It was just such a great read, and I'd highly...

    3.5. "KoBra" Stars ARC via NetGalley. Thank you, Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) First of all, I'm a little late with this review, but I'm totally blaming life for that one. *hides behinds hands* I was super excited to get a chance to read this book because OMG, a half-...

    4.5 stars I don't know about you, but when I'm feeling like a raincloud, I usually like to pick myself up with a sweet and fluffy contemporary. The Way You Make Me Feel is the perfect example of one such book. *I received an e-ARC from Netgalley before its release, but all of my opini...

    OH MY GOD!!!! This is the cutest YA Contemporary i've ever read!!!! Im so happy now. I think this dethroned simon vs. as my #1 cutesy contemporary?????? This was honestly perfect. It had everything i want and need in a ya contemporary (family, friendship and love). The characters were ...

    All props to Maurene Goo. The Way You Make Me Feel is one of my favorite YA contemporaries of 2018. A large part of my love is due to Clara, the Korean-American main character and narrator. She?s prickly and sarcastic and fun-loving. After a prom prank gone horribly wrong, her father...

    ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review DNF - 10% Sorry, Clara is too much of a brat to me and I just couldn't like her character. I'm one of those people that has to like the character in order to like the book. The prom scene just did me in, it was too much, too... I d...

    That moment when you finish a book & you clutch it to your chest & breathe in how amazing it was... yeah, that?s me right now. From the spot-on teenage voice, to the broken yet so foundational relationship between a daughter & her father, to the love letter written to ...

    this is one of the best covers of 2018 ...

    Maurene captured my half-Korean heart with her sophomore novel, I Believe in a Thing Called Love, so there was no question I was eager for The Way You Make Me Feel. I even posted about the cover reveal a few months ago, and have been eager and hopeful for an ARC of some kind. Well, ...

    LOOK AT THAT COVER WOW ...

    Well, here's another book I semi-hated: the heroine was annoying, the plot and writing were juvenile, but there were some pretty realistic aspects (like the friendship), and the father/daughter dynamics made me cry at the end. Full review soon! Thank you to Macmillan for the revi...

    I got sucked in by that cover and the synopsis and couldn?t wait to get to it. I liked Clara. She?s quite an interesting character. She?s snarky and maybe a little rude, but there?s a lot of potential. I really enjoyed reading her grow from a bratty teenager to someone who ...

    4.5 stars This book is certainly more of a ?deep? contemporary, and it?s one of those YA romances that I love to read. Oddly enough, during the beginning of this book I was getting Lizzie Mcguire vibes. Clara and Rose?s hate filled relationship felt so catty and high schoo...

    I loved every INCH of this book. It's sweet and funny and full of pranks and pure joy. Clara has such a clear, distinct voice; there's no other character is YA lit like her right now, and I absolutely couldn't get enough. This book has real depth too - why we hold things at arms len...

    There are no white people in this story, first and foremost. Second: this is a really fun and funny read about friendships, about leaning into your real emotions, into family and love, and into finding your first true love (even if you're not able to say you love them). Totally a fe...

    In this huge city, there were three people in this truck who mattered a lot to me. I?d protect that little part of the universe for as long as possible. This book was so adorable? Think of the sweetest ice cream you?ve ever tasted and had some chocolate on top of it, that?s ho...

    The Way You Make Me Feel is one of the best YA contemporary romances I've ever read. It had everything I want from this genre: memorable characters, developed romantic and non-romantic relationships, diversity, a fresh premise and atmosphere. It's been a while since I've read a book t...

    The Way You Make Me Feel is an incredibly good and adorable read, full of yummy food descriptions, and it should definitely be on your summer TBR. I didn?t have very high expectations going into this book, since I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Goo?s previous book, was a 3-star...

    4.5 **I want to thank MacMillan Publishing and Ate Tin of The Book Maiden for hosting this blog tour and for giving me the opportunity to participate. This, by any means, did not affect nor influence my review. The Way You Make Me Feel took me by surprise. I have read I Believe i...

    4/5stars This was GREAT! I loved it! I'm so happy I ended up preordering it and reading it ASAP (even if it took me a bit to get through with how busy I was). The biggest thing I enjoyed was how completely different from her first book this was and how unique it was. I feel like ...

    i cant imagine loving a maurene goo book less than 5 stars. her style is just so in sync with everything i love! food, california, adorable dads, heart-warming friendships, sweet romances, characters who are just plain fun - she does it all!! ?????? ...

    I absolutely adored THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL! It was charming. It was sweet. It made me laugh. It (totally) made me cry. It was also surprisingly easy to relate to, especially considering the fact that Clara and I are very different people. It was just such a great read, and I'd highly...

    If you?re looking for a poignant YA contemporary book, step away. I?ll direct you towards other new releases, such as A Girl Like That, I Have Lost My Way or Girl Made of Stars. But if what you?re looking for is for a read that is going to take your mind off of your finals...

    This is everything I love about contemporary YA and look for in a summer read. It's like an adorable love note to LA, food, and families that ends with the most beautiful messages. Basically, it's one of those feel-good reads that's in no way forced or super cheesy (yay). Clara star...

    The Way You Make Me Feel is an incredibly good and adorable read, full of yummy food descriptions, and it should definitely be on your summer TBR. I didn?t have very high expectations going into this book, since I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Goo?s previous book, was a 3-star...

    I absolutely adored THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL! It was charming. It was sweet. It made me laugh. It (totally) made me cry. It was also surprisingly easy to relate to, especially considering the fact that Clara and I are very different people. It was just such a great read, and I'd highly...

    This is everything I love about contemporary YA and look for in a summer read. It's like an adorable love note to LA, food, and families that ends with the most beautiful messages. Basically, it's one of those feel-good reads that's in no way forced or super cheesy (yay). Clara star...

    Well, here's another book I semi-hated: the heroine was annoying, the plot and writing were juvenile, but there were some pretty realistic aspects (like the friendship), and the father/daughter dynamics made me cry at the end. Full review soon! Thank you to Macmillan for the revi...

    I got sucked in by that cover and the synopsis and couldn?t wait to get to it. I liked Clara. She?s quite an interesting character. She?s snarky and maybe a little rude, but there?s a lot of potential. I really enjoyed reading her grow from a bratty teenager to someone who ...

    4.5 stars This book is certainly more of a ?deep? contemporary, and it?s one of those YA romances that I love to read. Oddly enough, during the beginning of this book I was getting Lizzie Mcguire vibes. Clara and Rose?s hate filled relationship felt so catty and high schoo...

    I loved every INCH of this book. It's sweet and funny and full of pranks and pure joy. Clara has such a clear, distinct voice; there's no other character is YA lit like her right now, and I absolutely couldn't get enough. This book has real depth too - why we hold things at arms len...

    There are no white people in this story, first and foremost. Second: this is a really fun and funny read about friendships, about leaning into your real emotions, into family and love, and into finding your first true love (even if you're not able to say you love them). Totally a fe...

    All props to Maurene Goo. The Way You Make Me Feel is one of my favorite YA contemporaries of 2018. A large part of my love is due to Clara, the Korean-American main character and narrator. She?s prickly and sarcastic and fun-loving. After a prom prank gone horribly wrong, her father...

    ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review DNF - 10% Sorry, Clara is too much of a brat to me and I just couldn't like her character. I'm one of those people that has to like the character in order to like the book. The prom scene just did me in, it was too much, too... I d...

    If you?re looking for a poignant YA contemporary book, step away. I?ll direct you towards other new releases, such as A Girl Like That, I Have Lost My Way or Girl Made of Stars. But if what you?re looking for is for a read that is going to take your mind off of your finals...

    First of all, how gorgeous is this cover? Second, this was genuinely one of the most heartwarming novels I have read in a very long time, and I hope that every YA contemporary fan will pick it up and give it a shot! I hated when my dad gendered the stupid truck. To retaliate, I cal...

    This is everything I love about contemporary YA and look for in a summer read. It's like an adorable love note to LA, food, and families that ends with the most beautiful messages. Basically, it's one of those feel-good reads that's in no way forced or super cheesy (yay). Clara star...

    LOOK AT THAT COVER WOW ...

    Well, here's another book I semi-hated: the heroine was annoying, the plot and writing were juvenile, but there were some pretty realistic aspects (like the friendship), and the father/daughter dynamics made me cry at the end. Full review soon! Thank you to Macmillan for the revi...

    I got sucked in by that cover and the synopsis and couldn?t wait to get to it. I liked Clara. She?s quite an interesting character. She?s snarky and maybe a little rude, but there?s a lot of potential. I really enjoyed reading her grow from a bratty teenager to someone who ...

    4.5 stars This book is certainly more of a ?deep? contemporary, and it?s one of those YA romances that I love to read. Oddly enough, during the beginning of this book I was getting Lizzie Mcguire vibes. Clara and Rose?s hate filled relationship felt so catty and high schoo...

    I loved every INCH of this book. It's sweet and funny and full of pranks and pure joy. Clara has such a clear, distinct voice; there's no other character is YA lit like her right now, and I absolutely couldn't get enough. This book has real depth too - why we hold things at arms len...

    There are no white people in this story, first and foremost. Second: this is a really fun and funny read about friendships, about leaning into your real emotions, into family and love, and into finding your first true love (even if you're not able to say you love them). Totally a fe...

    The Way You Make Me Feel is an incredibly good and adorable read, full of yummy food descriptions, and it should definitely be on your summer TBR. I didn?t have very high expectations going into this book, since I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Goo?s previous book, was a 3-star...
