Anyone else watch Arthur growing up and love the idea of getting locked in the #library? 🙋🏼‍♀️ That happens in this Kasie West, so of course, I loved experiencing the scenario vicariously through Autumn—except she doesn‘t like to read and can‘t fully appreciate the opportunity she‘s been gifted. 🤦🏼‍♀️😂 (Still, it‘s a super cute and super fun story.)⁣ #30junebooks

MayaB1226 I remember reading that book and getting frustrated whenever the MC would talk about being bored or having nothing to do. Autumn, you are literally in a LIBRARY surrounded by HUNDREDS of BOOKS!! 😂 Still a good read though! 3w

This was a cute book that starts out with the main character being trapped in a #library over a long weekend. She‘s locked in with a boy from school and friendship and the possibility of romance ensues. I liked that the book dealt with more serious issues such as the realities of anxiety disorder but some of it hit a bit close to home so it took me awhile to finish. #30junebooks @howjessreads #bfcr2 #bookdragons

3/5 stars. I enjoyed the beginning of this book, but once they have a big reveal, i did not enjoy everything after. Not my favorite Kasie West Book.

I have loved almost all of Kasie West‘s books, and i was enjoying this one up until the middle of the book and a big thing is revealed. There are still like 100 pages left, and I‘m just not enjoying where the story is going, and I‘m just continuing to say that i finished at this point...

This book was overall ok. After getting over the fact that the library these kids were stuck in apparently had no landline phones to call for help, I thought the rest of the story was fairly cute. I kind of wish there was more interaction between the two main characters and more of a build up to their relationship, but meh, oh well. #ya #romance #romantsy

Currently listening to this audiobook. Never heard of it before, but sounded interesting. It‘s about a high school aged girl who gets locked in the library over the weekend with fellow mysterious classmate, Dax.

So far it‘s pretty good. My only issue so far is that neither of them had a cell phone to be able to call someone, but WHY DID THIS LIBRARY NOT HAVE ANY LANDLINE PHONES??? 🤔🤔🤔 #ya #romance #romantsy #Audiobook

2 teens are trapped in a library, they get to know each other and end up helping each other with their problems. My only beef with the book is the libraries lack of technology and closing procedures. No phone? Computer? Panic button? Then again, there wouldn‘t have been a story.

I was totally Autumn in this story. I too hid my anxiety and panic attacks from my friends, and did everything that was expected of me, even if it made things worse.

Two teens get stuck in the library together. He is a foster kid kicked out of his latest home. She is a worrier with an anxiety disorder. This is a great look at expectations, commitments, and being accepted for who you are. The teens love this author and I can certainly understand why.

Jeralyn I liked this book as well!! 5mo

Sadly, my most recent 5-star read was last May. It was By Your Side by Kasie West. I was in an epic reading slump for the last half of 2018, though. I only read 4 books in 6 months. 😳😢😭 #boutofbooks #bob24igphoto

Moony Oh I know how you're feeling. I read 17 books and only four where really good and I couldn't put them down. 6mo

Adorable story with tons of sexy tension. While not completely believable it managed to make me want to believe and that‘s all that matters.

This was pure fluff and I adored it. Although it did have the serious subject matter of dealing with anxiety. It‘s a fun one sitting read.

@Robothugs I just received By Your Side from your #giveaway Thank You. I'm looking forward to a nice ya romance after this hectic January. I also love that the book is signed and the bookmark is fantastic. 😸

Robothugs I‘m glad it got there safe! Hopefully this helps brings a close to your hectic January! 🙏🏻 Enjoy! 😊 1y
kamoorephoto I recently met Kasie West and she‘s so awesome!!! I couldn‘t believe she has written 11 books! WTH. And that two of her teenage girls had not read her books. She joked that she was leaving all her money to the youngest girl in the will 😹😹😹 1y

This was a quick and easy read.
Autumn gets locked into the library and is trying not to let her anxiety take over. While trapped she realizes she isn‘t alone and finds a classmate is also there with her, Dax.
The story follows how Autumn deals with her anxiety and finally allowing her friends know about it. She also falls for Dax who helps her realize that thinking about herself isn‘t selfish.

I didn't think this was bad. I was more entertained by this one than One Silver Summer. But I wasn't invested in the romance, friendships, or family relations.
Side note... that library should have had phones at the reference and circulation desks...

Like Twilight without vampires, and cabin-in-the-woods romance except the cabin is a public library, and #BreakfastClub but with a cast of two. I was interested in the premise of two teens stuck in a library but the plot weakened into tiresome teen drama in the outside world #romantsy

This was my second Kasie West and it was just as adorable! I'm an official West fan!

What happens when you are trapped for a full weekend in a library with no way out along with the loner boy from school? (I personally would have read the whole time, but this story was much cuter than my reality would've been).

The perfect feel-good book for a difficult day.

MeganAnn Hmm trapped in a library sounds like the best weekend ever! 👍🏻 2y
Kaylamburson I know, right?? Disappointingly they didn't take advantage of it in the way most Littens would, but cute all the same. @MeganAnn 2y

Strangely, the main character in this book isn't excited to be trapped in a library for three days! So weird. Still, cute book so far, even if she hasn't done any reading!

For an impulse read, I read this all in one sitting. It was cute~
Autumn has an anxiety disorder and Dax is the only person who understands her while trying not to get attached at all, yet I love the chemistry and I can relate to both of them.

Yet, the premise lures you in that this will be a book lovers romance when it isnt and there are some problems with the book.

While I give it a 4/5🌟 others might think it so-so or lower.

This book gave me all the feels. I cried, I laughed, and did oh so many other things with the characters Kasie West has created. Jeff and Dax's personalities made it so hard for the reader to choose who she wanted Autumn to pick! Overall an amazing book and can't wait to read more from Kasie West! 4.5/5 stars for this book.

Also, I caved and bought this one. I've been kind of disappointed in her books lately but I couldn't resist the deal and it would be the perfect beach read.

Are there any other great YA deals today?

Chachic If you're interested in reading YA books written by Filipino authors, the full price ebooks are quite affordable. Let me know if you want some recs.👌 2y
