A Week Of Mondays | Kissing Ted Callahan | Read Bottom Up MINI-REVIEWS

Mini-reviews of A Week Of Mondays by Jessica Brody, Kissing Ted Callahan (And Other Guys) by Amy Spalding and Read Bottom Up by Neel Shah and Skye Chatham.

Hello reader friends — I feel like it has been such a long time since I’ve really put effort into blogging. Let me tell you, they were not kidding when they said the first trimester is exhausting. I am finally coming out of the first with only a few short weeks to go. It is no joke though. So, I figured mini reviews were the way to go with a pile of need to be reviewed books stacking up.

A Week Of Mondays by Jessica Brody is a super adorable contemporary book that feels like it took me all of ten seconds to read. Actually, real facts it did take me a little bit longer. So, the gist of the book is basically that Ellison keeps repeating this one day over and over again, until she gets it right. You see, she looks awful for the school picture, her parents are fighting in the morning, she flubs her election speech and worst of all, her boyfriend breaks up with her. Ellison is convinced that she must get the day absolutely perfect to prevent Tristan, her boyfriend from breaking up with her.

I really liked A Week Of Mondays in the same way that I have enjoyed Jessica Brody’s other books that I’ve read. I laughed, I rooted for the main characters, and I devoured the book real quickly. It is unlikely that I will revisit A Week Of Mondays, but overall, I found it to be a satisfying read with an ending that was absolutely wonderful. If you’re worried about the groundhog day over and over again being boring, I will tell you that it is not. There are changes to each day that will keep you reading and interested.

Kissing Ted Callahan (And Other Guys) by Amy Spalding is definitely one of those RIGHT UP MY ALLEY kind of books. Basically, the main character is Riley. She has had a crush on this guy named Ted Callahan for pretty much forever. Also, she’s in a band which is another thing that makes the book appeal to me. Riley makes a pact with her best friend Reid. The two will help each other while communicating through this journal. They do whatever it takes to win the love of their crushes.

Oh and also? A bunch of other guys are suddenly interested in Riley. Friends, I loved reading Kissing Ted Callahan (And Other Guys). I thought it was so funny and cute. Of course, I just wanted Riley and Ted to hook up. There’s a whole lot of realistic awkward in there too. And I love the layer of Riley’s band and how important it is to her. Fans of books like Audrey, Wait! will definitely enjoy Kissing Ted Callahan. Also, if you like books that take what feels like a nanosecond to read because you are so absorbed in them — you will enjoy this book too!

Read Bottom Up by Neel Shah and Skye Chatham is a book that I received totally unsolicited in the mail. I actually knew nothing about it. However, upon reading the back cover I was hooked. So, I actually began reading this one immediately. I never really do that. I was one of those people who actually likes to plan out my reading ahead of time. Read Bottom Up was absolutely worth throwing my schedule in the air.

Read Bottom Up actually reminded me a bit of Boy Meets Girl by Meg Cabot. This book has an epistolary feel for the modern day. I mean, there’s tinder and facebook and texting. The two main characters are Madeleine and Elliot. They meet in person at a restaurant opening. At first, their hook ups are kind of fantastic. Then, they become a couple and it turns out that Elliot has some serious FOMO. Anyways, the book takes some unexpected plot twists and has an ending that I did anticipate. I enjoyed this book for being a fast read. I loved it for not being predictable. Recommended for readers who want to ease into books aimed at adults.

  1. What happy news! Congrats on your pregnancy! Hope that the exhaustion eases up soon. Can’t wait to see all the fun picture books you pick up to read with the baby!

    I hear ya about mini reviews. I think I need to catch up with a few of those myself. Read Bottom Up sounds so fun and I’m intrigued about those plot twists!

  2. So glad you liked Kissing Ted Callahan!! It’s one of my favorites and definitely a “me” book also!! I LOLed in public while reading it, which isn’t normal for me. I’m definitely going to read A Week of Mondays soon. I totally loved 52 Reasons to Hate My Father, so I’m excited to read something with that same lightness.
