Songs About a Girl is a gorgeous page turning romance from start to finish. This is the book that teenage dreams are made of!
I highly, highly recommend this. It's one of those really feel-good books which also has some low moments thrown in and I definitely came away from it desperate to read the sequel.
Once I started reading, I honestly couldn't stop and managed to fly through the book in three days. The pacing was perfect and there was never a dull moment. The dialogue was also spot on, especially Melissa's fangirling sessions. Any fangirl or fanboy reading this book will smile at Melissa's reactions to everything! The ending was a fantastic cliff-hanger and definitely has me eager for more - WHEN WILL THE SEQUEL BE IN MY LIFE?
I would recommend this book for girls aged 14-18.
Highly addictive, utterly charming and impossible to put down.
This is the music based book that I have been waiting for
Absolutely perfect as a summer book. It only took me a day to read because I got completely hooked!
I completely fell hard for this book. It's a delight and, aside from a few personal disagreements with some of Charlie's choices, I just didn't want this book to end. Songs About a Girl is fun, cool and is going to completely win the heart of any fangirl that wanted to be plucked out of the crowd by a band member.
It was brilliant book by Chris! Filled with relationships, family, friends, drama, relationships, romance and laughs and I loved every second of it!
Songs About a Girl is more than music, its about growing up, dealing with issues that others face every day, its about becoming a stronger person for yourself and never giving up on your dream. It's a book that you can fall into and never want it to end, and I really need the next installment now please.
Writing about fictional celebrities while contriving to make them seem real is a hard trick to pull off, but Chris Russell's YA debut succeeds where many others have failed. His own background as a musician and band member is much in evidence. Everything he writes about rings true. Fire&Lights have the unmistakeable stamp of authenticity and it's clear that Russell still vividly remembers what it's like to be both a teenager and a fan. This was a book that I just wanted to go on an on. The ending when it did come was clever, surprising and very, very intriguing. And the really good news is that Songs About a Girl is the first of a trilogy.
This story felt incredibly current. It's exciting and easy to read. Chris Russell is a fantastic writer.
This was such an addictive story, I seriously could not put it down
... one of those books that we could legit read on a loop - THAT GOOD.
Occasionally, a book will come along that shakes up the blogosphere completely. The latest of those books? Songs About a Girl by Chris Russell....this is such a brilliant book with funny dialogue and some very clever twists... you won't want to miss it
A thoroughly absorbing tale of family relationships, friendship and betrayal. Fans of Non Pratt will love it
