Love Songs & Other Lies
Author: Jessica Pennington
Publication Date: April 24th, 2018
Publisher: Tor Teen
Synopsis: It’s summer romance and second chances, the songs that stay in your head, and the boy you’ll never forget.
Two years after rock-song-worthy heartbreak, Virginia Miller is looking forward to a fun, carefree summer. Her friends just landed a spot on a battling bands reality show, and Vee is joining them for her dream internship on tour. Three months with future rockstars seems like an epic summer plan. Until she learns she’ll also be sharing the bus with Cam. Her first love, and her first heartbreak. Now Vee has more than just cameras to dodge, and Cam’s determination to win her forgiveness is causing TMZ-worthy problems for both of them. With cameras rolling, she’ll have to decide if her favorite breakup anthem deserves a new ending. And if she’s brave enough to expose her own secrets to keep Cam’s under wraps.
I love a cute, drama filled romance that is perfect for the start of summer! If you’re interested in that kind of romance, too, then Love Songs & Other Lies is a book that you need in your life!
The characters are amazing in this book – Virginia is such as relatable character who has so much to offer the reader, and her story is one that is ideal for a summer romance. From the first page I knew she wasn’t going to end up being a traditional YA romance character, with plenty to set her apart from other books in the genre. She was fun, she was full of personality, and she was trying to have an amazing carefree summer after she had just had her heart broken.
Then she ends up joining a reality show with her friends, and she finds out she’s going to be running into an ex-love quite often during that summer.
I love how the author combined a band vibe, a summer romance, and a reality show all into one fun book. There is so much to offer readers, as there is something that will capture the interest of a wide audience. At the same time, it all tied together nicely, and it wasn’t left feeling watered down.
This book also gave me all the feels while reading it! It was so exciting to see what was going to happen in the reality show, but it was also nice to see what was happening in Virgina’s personal life, too. It was definitely drama filled!
If you’re looking for an awesome beach worthy book that will satisfy your cravings for all things summer and drama, this is a book for you!
Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
Jessica Pennington is no stranger to the combination of love and drama. She’s a wedding planner, after all. A writer since the age of ten—when she sought publication for her poem about a tree—Jessica likes the challenge of finding the humor in a sad situation or highlighting the awkwardness in a romantic one. She lives in a Michigan beach town suspiciously similar to the one in her novel, with her husband Josh and their son, Rory. Love Songs & Other Lies is her debut novel.
