WOW!! This was more than I expected and beyond what I hoped for. I have been reading A LOT of Fantasy, SciFi, Magically Realistic books lately and to be honest, switching things up in order to break free from the monotonous genre rut I have been stuck in sounded a little scary... like I was going to waste my time on some vapid fluff. Let me tell you that this slowly budding Hate --> Love relationship was not only sweet and gently tentative BUT it was smoothly, subtly and superbly executed as well. This is the Rivals to Lovers trope done right! It's also a coming of age tale, our two MCs, Rowen and Neil, navigated the oft times murky waters of teenage life... although their personal transformations seemed slow, they were ultimately significant. I loved how they brought out the very best in each other even when they weren't conscious of it or more importantly, even when they were trying to subvert (and outdo) one another. I also loved their interplay (both verbal and physical), the juxtaposition really ratcheted up the tension.

The MCs were teenagers so you'd think that, because of the large age gap between us, the story wouldn't have resonated with me as much as it did. I am thrilled to report that my worrying was completely unfounded... it was a tiny slice of perfection... a dollop of guilty pleasure AND exactly what I needed at the moment. I kept checking the page count and percentage finished, willing it to slow down even as I read faster to see what would happen next. It was so well crafted and fleshed out that I stayed up all night just to see where Neil and Rowan's story would end up. I sported a Cheshire Cat like smile for almost the entire time I was reading. It was so wide and firmly stuck there that my hubby noticed it even in a dark room with only the dim glow of my ereader to see by... that's how happy this book made me feel. I wanted to cuddle up somewhere cozy and snuggle with this in my arms for hours thinking of all the sweet, tender, nascent moments sprinkled throughout the story.

Overall:
This quick, surprisingly touching gem blindsided me... it drop kicked me right in the Feels. The dialogue was clever and natural and the tension was deliciously palpable. This is one book that will have you thinking back on your teenage years and wondering what high school would have been like if you had just done something differently... taken a slightly different path... what would have happened if you gave that love interest a chance? What would your life look like? How would that have shaped the person you are today?

I loved this read, especially its characters and the poignant morals our cast wrestled with. There were introspective moments where our MCs had to notice, address and try to rectify their personal flaws. These are deep concepts that I see many adults, myself included, still trying to come to terms with in their own lives. I highly recommend this read if you're in the mood for a lighthearted, throwback to your teenage years book with burgeoning romance and the coming of age aspects that addresses the universal truth that Perfection is a myth... it's unobtainable and you can't live in the daydreams where it is the pinnacle... the penultimate goal. BUT don't expect full closure... the ending is satisfying but kept messy... like life.

Anyway... check it out... I'm sure you'll be searching for a comfy spot where you too can adoringly canoodle with this book.

~ Enjoy ( )

Today Tonight Tomorrow is the first book by Rachel Lynn Solomon that I have read, and her writing is different in a beautiful way. I can’t put my finger on precisely what it is about her writing style that I liked, other to say that it was fresh and honest. I went into this book, not knowing much about it other than it was a young adult book. If I am sincere in the beginning, I didn’t like this book. However, very slowly, this book crept into my heart and made me smile.

Rowan Roth and Neil McNair have been at odds with each other since the first day of high school. At the end of four years, they are still at odds with each other. They have fought tooth and nail for every academic accolade.

“The essay contest that started it all…First place, McNair and his beloved Fitzgerald, second place Roth. I vow to beat him at whatever comes next.”

Now the ultimate prize, valedictorian, lies within both of their reaches. But yet again, Rowan is bested by “McNightmare” when he is awarded, valedictorian. Rowan, however, is not a girl who is about to give up. There is one prize still to be won, Howl. Howl is the final senior challenge, a scavenger hunt of sorts with a twist that takes them all over the city of Seattle looking for clues while at the same time eliminate one another. During this game, Roth and McNair reluctantly team up, and that is when the fun begins. “And it’s there, on the fourth floor of the library, watching my nemesis take slow sips of ginger ale, that I have a horrifying realization. Neil…is cute.”

What made this book enjoyable is the dynamics between Roth and McNair. We know from the beginning what will happen between these two, but that’s okay; it’s the journey these two experiences that make this book fun. They start off tossing barbs at each other, and then little by little; they start sharing secrets, hopes, and dreams. Over twenty-four hours, these two archenemies learn about themselves, but they learn about each other in a way they never thought possible.

“’ Earth-shattering,’ he says…He kisses the top of my head. ‘well, yes, but I meant you.’”

Today Tonight Tomorrow is a sweet, funny coming of age book slash rom-com that takes these two characters from enemies to friends to lovers. This book did a fantastic job conveying all the crazy mixed-up feelings that teens now have to deal with in such an endearing way. Today Tonight Tomorrow is like a big hug that wraps around your heart and mind. I highly recommend you read this book; you will not be disappointed.

Rowan and Neil have an epic high school rivalry. It surprises them both when they team up at HOWL, the year end scavenger hunt and competition. As they discover all their common ground, the realize that there is a fine line between love and hate. The story and their relationship changes dramatically in 24 hours in ways they would have never expected. ( )
