Julia Whelan has been one of my favorite audio narrators for years, so I was pretty excited to read a book she both narrates and wrote! I found this book thanks to you, Littens, so I was prepared to have it break my heart, which it did, but in a good way. I liked that the ending isn't really an ending, it's just a beautiful snapshot of a year in a life.

Megabooks Great review!! 3d

This book isn‘t what I expected. I decided to listen to it because I realized that Julia Whelan, narrator extraordinaire, was the author. I was thinking it would be some light-ish literary fiction. Nope. Pure romantic fluff. Also completely u realistic. No spoilers, but the mc‘s choices were 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ to me and that was my biggest issue.

lele1432 I actually decided to pass this one up because I don't really like Julia Whelan's narrations lol. 1mo

This definitely gave me “Me Before You” vibes and I loved every minute of it. A quick audiobook to listen to while studying.

I‘m attending my first PD for the upcoming school year. The content this morning was a bit dry and repetitive and I expect the same this afternoon. I‘m going to start book 5 for #TheReadingRush

Still count as a good summer read! Few weak spots and definitely read like a fleshed-out-ish script in parts, but good.

Can't take it anymore.

How can this bright woman, who wants to work in politics, who got a renowned scholarship to study at Oxford for a year, suddenly be so so so... I can't even find a proper word. Whiney and all of a sudden dumb?
She has a thick book with info on studying at Oxford but then sits in class dumbfounded that there's no syllabus and she's the only one to ask for one? Just one of the things that annoyed me.

Good Morning from my sunny balcony.

The cats are playing and "tanning", and I'm trying to get into the tagged audiobook.

Have reached chapter 3 which will decide on the fate of this. Right now the balance is tipping towards DNF and I can't even say why exactly.

Ella goes to Oxford, falls in love with her professor, sounds familiar right? I thought this would be a standard romance but it wasn‘t. You have a smart, independent, and focused female lead who learns some lessons along the way but her love story doesn‘t change those important aspects of her. This book certainly surprised me in wonderful ways! My only question is how she did everything she did with being a Rhodes scholar! #bookreview myoxfordyear

I guess I only read half of the back-cover blurb before deciding to read this (it was really the setting that got me), so I was surprised by a key plot point. But I'm actually glad that I didn't know what to expect going in or I might not have even picked this up. It was a sweet and moving story that I think will stick with me.

In case you were wondering how 2018 is going for me emotionally, this is the third time I have checked “My Oxford Year” our of the library and read it while stress-eating chocolate. So yeah...pretty great.

jpmcwisemorgan I have a few things I‘ve read multiple times this year. Last year I did the same thing. I normally don‘t re-read that much but the last couple of years I‘ve needed to know where a story was headed more that I have in the past. 13mo

This was way too much like a retelling of Me Before You, I also found the way the male character was written towards the middle really infuriating! He lied so many times I even doubted whether he was actually suffering from a terminal illness (which is not a nice feeling to doubt this!!). Such a shame as was Greta up to then.

A nearly perfect summer read. Ella Durran has dreamed of studying at Oxford since she was 13. She wins a Rhodes scholarship & that dream comes true. And, in the way of such things, her first night there she runs into a cocky local who turns out to be one of her professors. Sparks fly, things happen, there is laughter & tears. The plot is as you might expect it to be but it‘s well executed, Ella & Jamie are likable characters & it‘s a fun story.

This was my favorite book for June. I picked it up thinking I just wanted something lighter between the murder mysteries I had on my docket and with a cover that seemed whimsical and it hit upon my desire to spend time in Oxford, I was sold. There was whimsy and light but also a ton of heart. This was not what I was expecting but only in the best sense possible. I don't buy many books anymore, maybe one per year, but this may make that shortlist.

Really enjoyed this read!

I found the age of the characters...confusing? I‘m not sure that‘s the right word, but basically their age didn‘t always match their actions but it only bothered me a bit. I would‘ve edited out the entire politics storyline to fix it, but I‘m not sure if that was part of the adaptation or not.

ANYWAY, either way I really liked this. A little predictable but still warm and fuzzy. (With a few tears.) Bonus Oxford points!
