By Your Side Book Review
By Your Side - Kasie West

Okay, so, so far I really have only enjoyed On the Fence by Kasie West. I was super excited for a book about a girl stuck in a library with a boy, but honestly? I thought this was just awful. There are so many plot holes involved and the anxiety and illness really wasn't handled well. 

 

Autumn finds herself suddenly locked in the library for the weekend. With no way out. And worst of all she's stuck in there with a boy, Dax. Autumn has anxiety, but none of her friends know, she only hopes she can keep her cool while stuck in the school library with the mysterious and somewhat gorgeous Dax. 

 

Ugh. First of all West didn't do her research. The not being able to use public computers was realistic. But the library not having any phones? NO. And what about emergency exits? Also NO. This just would never actually happen the way it does and I couldn't get through it without eye rolling every few pages. 

 

And the anxiety felt very poorly written. I know several people that suffer from anxiety and while I myself don't I have seen it and have seen how hard it is for people to deal with. I just didn't find it believable in By Your Side, and I really don't feel like West understands just how hard it is to live with it. 

 

So disappointed by this one. I almost didn't even finish it.

{ARC} Book Review: By Your Side by Kasie West
By Your Side - Kasie West

By Your Side - Kasie West  As of this time, By Your Side is my most favorite Kasie West book followed by The Distance Between Us. The whole time that I was reading this book, I cannot stop grinning from ear to ear. Who wouldn’t want to be locked in a library with a cute and mysterious hottie? I know, I wouldn’t mind (except the part where there’s no food and no changing of undies, ugh) especially if there’s a chance of cuddling with the mentioned hottie. Ha. Anyway, horniness aside, there’s so much more about By Your Side than your feel good contemporary romance YA.  The book tackled deep issues like anxiety disorder, child neglect, loneliness, conquering fears, and trust.  These things may sound heavy but trust me, Kasie West still managed to make By Your Side as fluffy as possible.

 

If you know me, I am more inclined to read angsty books than fluffy ones but Kasie West’s books really get me.  And By Your Side was no exception. Although it kind of disappointed me that it wasn’t about books (because hello! Most of the story took place inside a library), I was glad that the wonderful characters (I totally ship Dax and Autumn), the plot, the romance development, and the various issues tackled in the book made up for that.

 

I’m definitely looking forward to more Kasie West books. But before that, I must read P.S. I Like You first.

By Your Side - Kasie West That ending was kind of... underwhelming, but man was this a super cute read.

It seems Kasie West is either hit or miss with me. I absolutely loved "The Fill-in Boyfriend" and couldn't even get through other two books of hers. I am glad I was willing to give this author another chance because I really liked this book.

So it wasn't a 5 star read, but it was a more than enjoyable all in all, with a plot that was very straightforward. It was adorable, the drama wasn't too much (which I appreciate in this case), all characters were likeable, and I didn't want to strangle any of the teens in this novel *gasp*.

Consider this 4.5 stars.
