The Other Side of Lost Reviews

    Mar 23, 2018

    The first half of this book was phenomenal. I was ready to add it to my favourites shelf and preach about it forevermore. I really enjoyed it and recommend it (especially for people who struggle with social media and/or like nature!) but it missed the mark slightly for me by introducin...

    Great summer read! Quite thought provoking in multiple ways, especially if you?re dealing with grief. And a fantastic group of friends that I would love to meet in real life. :) ...

    ?The Other Side of Lost? is a beautiful and emotional story about finding yourself, about challenges, regrets and second chances, about friendship and nature and survival and a lot more. And yes, there is a bit of sweet love squeezed in there as well, to make your heart skip a...

    Stopped reading as I could see that this one was just not going to work for me. (Aside: I am a huge fan of the author, and will absolutely try her next book.) The Other Side of Lost is about a teen Instagram star, who, after the sudden death of her cousin, decides to take her cousin...

    I?m definitely a fan of Jessi Kirby and her words, so I?m always in for a new book and I don?t care what it?s about. I loved Mari so much. It was easy to relate to her obsession with social media and how she struggled with what she was showing. Her inner monologue is uncert...

    RATING: 3.75/5 e-ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Mari Turner?s life is perfect. That is, at least to her thousands of followers who have helped her become an internet starlet. But when she breaks down and confesses she?s been living a lie, it goes v...

    4.5 stars! I?ve never imagined myself going on a hike, but after reading this book (even with all of stressful things that happen), I?m feeling inspired to go on even a little one of my own. Also, this was just so well-written and it made me very emotional at certain points! ...

    Well friends, I think this book just about broke me. Jessi Kirby never fails to deliver on emotive stories about grief, growing up and love. The Other Side of Lost was another wonderful and heartwrenching story from her that absolutely moved me. At the center of The Other Side of ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 2.5* I was so,so certainthat I was going to love this book. Survival components, feels, finding oneself, I love all those things! But at the end of the day, some of ...

    I received this book through Goodreads First Reads. I don't have much to say about this one. I thought the author did a good job with the writing and describing the hiking scenes. Overall, it was a nice story even though I felt it was a bit predictable. ...

    see this review and others at arctic books! I believe this is my first Jessi Kirby novel, and it was sweet, short, and emotional. This novel follows Mari as she attempts to hike the daunting 211 miles of the John Muir trail. Along the way, she deals with the death of her cousin Bri ...

    Jessi Kirby is no stranger to writing heartfelt stories that touch on grief and strength in the face of it, and she does it again so expertly in The Other Side of Lost. Grief, loneliness, the cost of false facades and things you can?t undo are combined with the beauty of nature, the ...

    The Other Side of Lost is a standalone Young Adult novel. The narrator is 18 year old Mari. When the book begins we see Mari and her cousin when they were 13. They were best friends. However in the next chapter Mari is 18 and something has happened to her cousin. Mari is an insta...

    Initial thoughts: I really don?t know how to feel about this book. On one hand it was such a fast read and unputdownable. But on the other, it was very unrealistic. Full review: The Other Side Of Lost was a quick and engaging read! I?ve read every Jessi Kirby book and I ha...

    Mari had spent so many years curating her life, that she forgot to actually live it. Following her cousin's death, she felt adrift, lost, and she hoped following in Bri's footsteps would lead her back to herself. ? Pro: My emotions! My emotions! There were so many tears during thi...

    This book was okay. I really enjoyed the overall story. Especially the beginning of he book, I felt it had very strong start. However I felt the book didn't need the romance. I'm usually a sucker for a bit of romance but I just wasn't really feeling it. Otherwise I enjoyed this boo...

    This was my kind of a book. If I were to place an order, that is exactly what I would get delivered. I don't think it will sweep everyone off their feet, I can totally see how it may seem a bit pretentious and kind of naive. But it touches on many topics I often ponder - connecting t...

    The one thing I hate the most is when I am reading a book on my Kindle, I'm at 93% which means there are still some pages left, but the book decides to end there and I am absolutely not ready for it. That's what happened with The Other Side of Lost and I was just expecting more of a re...

    I received this book as a review copy from the publisher. "I still don't know what the other side of lost looks like. And right now, it doesn't seem like I'll ever find out." I have come to realize over the years that Jessi Kirby can do no wrong. Every single one of her books are...

    After Mari?s cousin Bri dies she receives Bri?s hiking gear in the mail on their 18th birthday and has an epiphany that she needs to hike the John Muir Trail in Bri?s place. A fellow nature lover and hiker myself, I expected a beautiful novel detailed with nature and self-discove...

    This book. OH THIS BOOK. I feel like Jessi Kirby is such a phemonenal writer of YA contemporary, but her books don't seem to garner as much buzz as some other popular YA authors, like Morgan Matson or Katie Cotugno. So instead, I feel like I need to climb up on top of a soapbox and yel...

    I confess I was looking forward to a story with more to do with social networks, but that is just a background for this one. This one focus on self discovery and nature, a little more to do with road trip stories I'd give it 3.5, but rounded it up because it did make me feel good. ...

    It has been a long time ago that I have gotten so emotional over a book. I don't know if that is because Kirby just deals with the (pretty heavy) subjects of loss and grief so well, or because it brings out some grief in myself about the hikes I wish I could still make but can't do any...

    I liked this book. The plot, the setting, the group of people Mari ends up hiking with. But the ending felt rushed and incomplete to me and the romance was underdeveloped, although it wasn't supposed to be a big part of the story, so that's probably why. ...

    ?4 stars? such an inspiring and emotional young adult novel, it spoke through my heart and it was so relatable in many ways. ...

    If you read and loved Wild, and you are looking for a version of that for the younger teen age, then this might be what you are looking for. It is not a memoir, but a fictional version of a similar story. A young social media obsessed girl named Mari decides to follow through on a ...

    Jessi Kirby is one of those contemporary authors whose books I will pretty much always read. She's released some very strong novels including Things We Know By Heart and Golden, and I'll always read her books with the expectation that I could get a massive hit in the feels. The Othe...

    While reading this book I was constantly on the lookout for a love interest. I was anxious whether of not he's going to even be in the book since the theme doesn't necessarily scream "I NEED A MAN" and then a certain guy appeared in the background and I groaned out loud. Romance wasn't...

    Review Posted on Reading Lark 8/27/18: https://readinglark.blogspot.com/2018... Mari Turner has the perfect life - at least online - but the price of perfection comes with a high price. Mari turned to the online community to find solace after her parents divorce. Social media platfo...

    The first half of this book was phenomenal. I was ready to add it to my favourites shelf and preach about it forevermore. I really enjoyed it and recommend it (especially for people who struggle with social media and/or like nature!) but it missed the mark slightly for me by introducin...

    Great summer read! Quite thought provoking in multiple ways, especially if you?re dealing with grief. And a fantastic group of friends that I would love to meet in real life. :) ...

    ?The Other Side of Lost? is a beautiful and emotional story about finding yourself, about challenges, regrets and second chances, about friendship and nature and survival and a lot more. And yes, there is a bit of sweet love squeezed in there as well, to make your heart skip a...

    Stopped reading as I could see that this one was just not going to work for me. (Aside: I am a huge fan of the author, and will absolutely try her next book.) The Other Side of Lost is about a teen Instagram star, who, after the sudden death of her cousin, decides to take her cousin...

    I?m definitely a fan of Jessi Kirby and her words, so I?m always in for a new book and I don?t care what it?s about. I loved Mari so much. It was easy to relate to her obsession with social media and how she struggled with what she was showing. Her inner monologue is uncert...

    RATING: 3.75/5 e-ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Mari Turner?s life is perfect. That is, at least to her thousands of followers who have helped her become an internet starlet. But when she breaks down and confesses she?s been living a lie, it goes v...

    4.5 stars! I?ve never imagined myself going on a hike, but after reading this book (even with all of stressful things that happen), I?m feeling inspired to go on even a little one of my own. Also, this was just so well-written and it made me very emotional at certain points! ...

    Well friends, I think this book just about broke me. Jessi Kirby never fails to deliver on emotive stories about grief, growing up and love. The Other Side of Lost was another wonderful and heartwrenching story from her that absolutely moved me. At the center of The Other Side of ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight 2.5* I was so,so certainthat I was going to love this book. Survival components, feels, finding oneself, I love all those things! But at the end of the day, some of ...

    I received this book through Goodreads First Reads. I don't have much to say about this one. I thought the author did a good job with the writing and describing the hiking scenes. Overall, it was a nice story even though I felt it was a bit predictable. ...

    see this review and others at arctic books! I believe this is my first Jessi Kirby novel, and it was sweet, short, and emotional. This novel follows Mari as she attempts to hike the daunting 211 miles of the John Muir trail. Along the way, she deals with the death of her cousin Bri ...

    Mari had spent so many years curating her life, that she forgot to actually live it. Following her cousin's death, she felt adrift, lost, and she hoped following in Bri's footsteps would lead her back to herself. ? Pro: My emotions! My emotions! There were so many tears during thi...

    This book was okay. I really enjoyed the overall story. Especially the beginning of he book, I felt it had very strong start. However I felt the book didn't need the romance. I'm usually a sucker for a bit of romance but I just wasn't really feeling it. Otherwise I enjoyed this boo...

    This was my kind of a book. If I were to place an order, that is exactly what I would get delivered. I don't think it will sweep everyone off their feet, I can totally see how it may seem a bit pretentious and kind of naive. But it touches on many topics I often ponder - connecting t...

    The one thing I hate the most is when I am reading a book on my Kindle, I'm at 93% which means there are still some pages left, but the book decides to end there and I am absolutely not ready for it. That's what happened with The Other Side of Lost and I was just expecting more of a re...

    I received this book as a review copy from the publisher. "I still don't know what the other side of lost looks like. And right now, it doesn't seem like I'll ever find out." I have come to realize over the years that Jessi Kirby can do no wrong. Every single one of her books are...

    After Mari?s cousin Bri dies she receives Bri?s hiking gear in the mail on their 18th birthday and has an epiphany that she needs to hike the John Muir Trail in Bri?s place. A fellow nature lover and hiker myself, I expected a beautiful novel detailed with nature and self-discove...

    This book. OH THIS BOOK. I feel like Jessi Kirby is such a phemonenal writer of YA contemporary, but her books don't seem to garner as much buzz as some other popular YA authors, like Morgan Matson or Katie Cotugno. So instead, I feel like I need to climb up on top of a soapbox and yel...

    I confess I was looking forward to a story with more to do with social networks, but that is just a background for this one. This one focus on self discovery and nature, a little more to do with road trip stories I'd give it 3.5, but rounded it up because it did make me feel good. ...

    It has been a long time ago that I have gotten so emotional over a book. I don't know if that is because Kirby just deals with the (pretty heavy) subjects of loss and grief so well, or because it brings out some grief in myself about the hikes I wish I could still make but can't do any...

    I liked this book. The plot, the setting, the group of people Mari ends up hiking with. But the ending felt rushed and incomplete to me and the romance was underdeveloped, although it wasn't supposed to be a big part of the story, so that's probably why. ...

    ?4 stars? such an inspiring and emotional young adult novel, it spoke through my heart and it was so relatable in many ways. ...

    If you read and loved Wild, and you are looking for a version of that for the younger teen age, then this might be what you are looking for. It is not a memoir, but a fictional version of a similar story. A young social media obsessed girl named Mari decides to follow through on a ...

    Jessi Kirby is one of those contemporary authors whose books I will pretty much always read. She's released some very strong novels including Things We Know By Heart and Golden, and I'll always read her books with the expectation that I could get a massive hit in the feels. The Othe...

    While reading this book I was constantly on the lookout for a love interest. I was anxious whether of not he's going to even be in the book since the theme doesn't necessarily scream "I NEED A MAN" and then a certain guy appeared in the background and I groaned out loud. Romance wasn't...

    Stopped reading as I could see that this one was just not going to work for me. (Aside: I am a huge fan of the author, and will absolutely try her next book.) The Other Side of Lost is about a teen Instagram star, who, after the sudden death of her cousin, decides to take her cousin...

    I?m definitely a fan of Jessi Kirby and her words, so I?m always in for a new book and I don?t care what it?s about. I loved Mari so much. It was easy to relate to her obsession with social media and how she struggled with what she was showing. Her inner monologue is uncert...

    I received this book through Goodreads First Reads. I don't have much to say about this one. I thought the author did a good job with the writing and describing the hiking scenes. Overall, it was a nice story even though I felt it was a bit predictable. ...

    see this review and others at arctic books! I believe this is my first Jessi Kirby novel, and it was sweet, short, and emotional. This novel follows Mari as she attempts to hike the daunting 211 miles of the John Muir trail. Along the way, she deals with the death of her cousin Bri ...

    Jessi Kirby is no stranger to writing heartfelt stories that touch on grief and strength in the face of it, and she does it again so expertly in The Other Side of Lost. Grief, loneliness, the cost of false facades and things you can?t undo are combined with the beauty of nature, the ...

    The Other Side of Lost is a standalone Young Adult novel. The narrator is 18 year old Mari. When the book begins we see Mari and her cousin when they were 13. They were best friends. However in the next chapter Mari is 18 and something has happened to her cousin. Mari is an insta...

    Initial thoughts: I really don?t know how to feel about this book. On one hand it was such a fast read and unputdownable. But on the other, it was very unrealistic. Full review: The Other Side Of Lost was a quick and engaging read! I?ve read every Jessi Kirby book and I ha...

    Mari had spent so many years curating her life, that she forgot to actually live it. Following her cousin's death, she felt adrift, lost, and she hoped following in Bri's footsteps would lead her back to herself. ? Pro: My emotions! My emotions! There were so many tears during thi...

    This book was okay. I really enjoyed the overall story. Especially the beginning of he book, I felt it had very strong start. However I felt the book didn't need the romance. I'm usually a sucker for a bit of romance but I just wasn't really feeling it. Otherwise I enjoyed this boo...

    This was my kind of a book. If I were to place an order, that is exactly what I would get delivered. I don't think it will sweep everyone off their feet, I can totally see how it may seem a bit pretentious and kind of naive. But it touches on many topics I often ponder - connecting t...

    The one thing I hate the most is when I am reading a book on my Kindle, I'm at 93% which means there are still some pages left, but the book decides to end there and I am absolutely not ready for it. That's what happened with The Other Side of Lost and I was just expecting more of a re...

    I received this book as a review copy from the publisher. "I still don't know what the other side of lost looks like. And right now, it doesn't seem like I'll ever find out." I have come to realize over the years that Jessi Kirby can do no wrong. Every single one of her books are...

    After Mari?s cousin Bri dies she receives Bri?s hiking gear in the mail on their 18th birthday and has an epiphany that she needs to hike the John Muir Trail in Bri?s place. A fellow nature lover and hiker myself, I expected a beautiful novel detailed with nature and self-discove...

    This book. OH THIS BOOK. I feel like Jessi Kirby is such a phemonenal writer of YA contemporary, but her books don't seem to garner as much buzz as some other popular YA authors, like Morgan Matson or Katie Cotugno. So instead, I feel like I need to climb up on top of a soapbox and yel...

    I confess I was looking forward to a story with more to do with social networks, but that is just a background for this one. This one focus on self discovery and nature, a little more to do with road trip stories I'd give it 3.5, but rounded it up because it did make me feel good. ...

    It has been a long time ago that I have gotten so emotional over a book. I don't know if that is because Kirby just deals with the (pretty heavy) subjects of loss and grief so well, or because it brings out some grief in myself about the hikes I wish I could still make but can't do any...

    Mari had spent so many years curating her life, that she forgot to actually live it. Following her cousin's death, she felt adrift, lost, and she hoped following in Bri's footsteps would lead her back to herself. ? Pro: My emotions! My emotions! There were so many tears during thi...

    This book was okay. I really enjoyed the overall story. Especially the beginning of he book, I felt it had very strong start. However I felt the book didn't need the romance. I'm usually a sucker for a bit of romance but I just wasn't really feeling it. Otherwise I enjoyed this boo...

    This was my kind of a book. If I were to place an order, that is exactly what I would get delivered. I don't think it will sweep everyone off their feet, I can totally see how it may seem a bit pretentious and kind of naive. But it touches on many topics I often ponder - connecting t...

    The one thing I hate the most is when I am reading a book on my Kindle, I'm at 93% which means there are still some pages left, but the book decides to end there and I am absolutely not ready for it. That's what happened with The Other Side of Lost and I was just expecting more of a re...

    I received this book as a review copy from the publisher. "I still don't know what the other side of lost looks like. And right now, it doesn't seem like I'll ever find out." I have come to realize over the years that Jessi Kirby can do no wrong. Every single one of her books are...

    After Mari?s cousin Bri dies she receives Bri?s hiking gear in the mail on their 18th birthday and has an epiphany that she needs to hike the John Muir Trail in Bri?s place. A fellow nature lover and hiker myself, I expected a beautiful novel detailed with nature and self-discove...

    This book. OH THIS BOOK. I feel like Jessi Kirby is such a phemonenal writer of YA contemporary, but her books don't seem to garner as much buzz as some other popular YA authors, like Morgan Matson or Katie Cotugno. So instead, I feel like I need to climb up on top of a soapbox and yel...

    I confess I was looking forward to a story with more to do with social networks, but that is just a background for this one. This one focus on self discovery and nature, a little more to do with road trip stories I'd give it 3.5, but rounded it up because it did make me feel good. ...

    It has been a long time ago that I have gotten so emotional over a book. I don't know if that is because Kirby just deals with the (pretty heavy) subjects of loss and grief so well, or because it brings out some grief in myself about the hikes I wish I could still make but can't do any...

    I liked this book. The plot, the setting, the group of people Mari ends up hiking with. But the ending felt rushed and incomplete to me and the romance was underdeveloped, although it wasn't supposed to be a big part of the story, so that's probably why. ...

    ?4 stars? such an inspiring and emotional young adult novel, it spoke through my heart and it was so relatable in many ways. ...

    While reading this book I was constantly on the lookout for a love interest. I was anxious whether of not he's going to even be in the book since the theme doesn't necessarily scream "I NEED A MAN" and then a certain guy appeared in the background and I groaned out loud. Romance wasn't...
