Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally $2,99
Things I Can't Forget - Miranda Kenneally

SOME RULES WERE MEANT TO BE BROKEN.

 

Kate has always been the good girl. Too good, according to some people at school—although they have no idea the guilty secret she carries. But this summer, everything is different...

 

This summer she's a counselor at Cumberland Creek summer camp, and she wants to put the past behind her. This summer Matt is back as a counselor too. He's the first guy she ever kissed, and he's gone from geeky songwriter who loved The Hardy Boys to a buff lifeguard who loves to flirt...with her.

 

Kate used to think the world was black and white, right and wrong. Turns out, life isn't that easy..

{ARC} Book Review: Coming Up For Air by Miranda Kenneally
Coming Up for Air (Hundred Oaks) - Miranda Kenneally

This review first appeared on Wayward Kitsune. 

 

I’m never the sporty type but if someone asks me what’s my favorite sport, it’s more likely that my answer would be ‘swimming.’  There’s just something fulfilling about being in the water and feeling it splash against your skin as you swim.  And that is why I immediately picked up and read this book. And wow, Kenneally delivered.  Keneally’s world of swimming was intricate, competitive and realistic.

 

Just like Kenneally’s characters in the previous books,  Coming Up For Air has a bunch of lovable and goal-oriented characters.  Though there’s something that bothered me about Maggie, I still liked her because she never got sidetracked by her longing to experience the ordinary teenage life from achieving her goals. And I could say the same for Maggie’s longtime male bestfriend, the straightforward Levi, who’s always there for her.

Basically, Coming Up for Air is more of a self-discovery story than romance. But for whatever its worth, the romance between Maggie and Levi was worth following even if it’s the usual bestfriends-turned-to-lovers kind of thing.

 

All in all, Coming Up for Air was certainly a winner and definitely one of my best reads this 2017.  It’s very relatable even for adults like me.  So you better stop what you’re doing right now and read this.

Coming Up for Air (Hundred Oaks)
Coming Up for Air (Hundred Oaks) - Miranda Kenneally So, Kenneally did it again. She has been churning out wonderful cute&fluffies with lots of heart and Coming Up for Air fits right in there.
It's cute, swoony, has lots of heart and is one of those books, one reads in one sitting. Which is exactly what happened to me today, I was just going to start the book, quickly over a short break... and I ended up extending the break a little bit (ok way longer than expected) and finishing the book.

Kenneally has a winning formula if you ask me. The books are well written, they cute, swoony and have great characters.
Coming Up for Air is totally character driven. I loved the little group of friends. I enjoyed Levi and Maggies drive and love for swimming. I also absolutely loved reading about their struggles and hard work in the sport and the reminder, those top athletes give up a lot be where they are.
I totally connected to Maggie, her insecurities and worries. I like how she found her way when it comes to sports, life and love.
Levi is sweet and swoony, really infuriating and such a teen boy. But I totally fell for him.
I love how little bitchy-ness goes on here, btw. I mean there are some dramas and fights ect, but no melodramatic. There is no bitchy cliquey crap going on. No mean girl vibes.. just things that actually feel like real life. I think this is why I enjoy this series so much. The characters feel realistic and relatable.

The story line is your best friend to lover kinda story. It's not something new, it is very enjoyable. And Kenneally added her own spin to it, which makes this oldie but goodie feel fresh and even somewhat unique.
The epilog didn't quite work for me, I mean I love Sam and all, I quite enjoyed hearing about their lives- but I felt cheated out of my extra bit of Maggie and Levi.


Coming Up for Air works as a stand-alone just like all previous books in the series. It is set at Hundred Oaks Highschool and loosely related to the previous books. It's another thing I like about the series, the fact that all the books work as a standalone but also that Kenneally pics different groups of friends, yet time goes on chronologically, so if you read all the books, you sometimes get a glimpse of the previous characters and what happened to them (especially Sam and Jordan)

MUST read for this summer!
