      I’m torn between a 3.5 and a 4, so I guess it’s more of a 3.75 but this was so cute! I loved the whole concept of it and for once for a romance, I really wasn’t sure how it would end which was kind of refreshing! A great Valentine’s Day read!!

      I can barely manage to write a book review, how does Kasie West publish like 508 books a year????While this book was better than her 507 other books, it still wasn't good. Definitely not good enough for me to write a review for it. 🤷‍♀️

      Well that was just soooo dang cute. Just what I needed to get me out of this reading slump.

      Hi… Have we met? I’m a Kasie West junkie. Whatever she’s writing, I’m reading. Her writing, her characters, her stories… everything just works perfectly for me, and her latest, Love, Life & The List was such a wonderful read.Abby and Cooper are best friends and have been for ages. The catch? Abby has some very strong, unrequited feelings for Cooper, and when she approached him about them and he didn’t react as expected she very quickly made a joke and pretended she didn’t mean [...]

      About: Love, Life, and the List is a young adult fiction written by Kasie West. It will be published on 12/26/17 by Harper Teen, an imprint of HarperCollins, 384 pages. The genres are contemporary, fiction, romance, and young adult. My Experience: I started reading Love, Life, and the List on 10/20/17 and finished it on 10/25/17. This book is another fun read from Kasie West. It’s full of sarcastic humor, challenges, friendship, and family. I love the easy to read pace and the go-getter charac [...]

      3.5/5 stars I really liked this book for the most part! It features one of my favorite tropes that was, for the most part, well done - but then it got really frustrating. I ended up close to not wanting the main character and the love interest together because I really don’t think he deserved her. He was great at first but then really did some stuff I didn’t like that was addressed but then dismissed so quickly that it almost didn’t feel like it was addressed at all. I originally had this [...]

      That was so cute! But also boring.Also, I love Cooper Wells. Aaaand this book did not cure my slump. How sad.*Kasie West cures slumps. I am in a slump. Therefore Kasie West will cure me from said slump.Buddy read with Critical Reader.

    11. Jen Ryland on said:

      I loved Kasie West's pararnomals but have had mixed results with her contemporaries. Sad to say that overall I thought this was just okay and that some aspects of it really bothered me. Abby is secretly in love with her best friend Cooper. A year ago she told him this, but when he didn't seem to return her feelings, she quickly claimed she'd been joking. Now she hangs around him all the time, silently pining. Abby's also an artist who's hoping to get her work included in an upcoming art show. Wh [...]

      “No matter how much we wish we could twist and bend someone’s will to ours, they have to want it too.”The summer before senior year Abby is left by two of her quartet of best friends to spend it with Cooper. Cooper, the boy she professed her love to the summer prior but then brushed it off as a joke to save embarrassment at his daunted face. To make matters worse she has been told that her paintings lack heart. In an effort to add more life to her art, she compiles a to do list to help ins [...]

      Happy Valentine’s Day, Lovelies!I really don't know that I counted this as a romanced if you go into it expecting a grand one, it will be painful. Like it was for me. Oh yes, you heard me correctly. Yeah, this is labeled a contemporary romance, but it really was, I don’t know, more about finding out who you are as a person and learning to love yourself enough to do what’s best for YOU. Learning that life isn’t always perfect. That there’s so much more to learn than what you realize. It [...]

    14. Stacee on said:

      This was exactly what I wanted to read. Love love love the BFF to more trope and Abby and Cooper are adorable together. I love their snark and banter and her art and his goofiness. I really enjoyed being on Abby’s head while she figured everything. There’s a great set of characters here and I can’t wait to see who gets a story. Plot wise, it was slow enough for me to savor and quick enough to satisfy. I loved the idea of the list and how everyone in her family wants to help. Her grandpa is [...]

      ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Love, List, and the List by Kasie WestPublisher: HarperTeenPublication Date: December 26, 2017Rating: 4 starsSource: ARC sent by the publisherSummary (from ):Everyone knows Abby Turner is in love with her best friend, Cooper Wells. Including Cooper Wells. But despite what people tell her, it doesn’t affect their friendship. And she’s practically over it, anyway. What she really can’t get over is when her boss at the local museum tells her that [...]

      (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)This was a YA contemporary romance story about an artist and a quad bike rider.I liked Abby and Cooper in this, and I liked their friendship. I felt sorry for Abby that Cooper didn’t want more, and I also felt sorry for her when it came to trying to get her art in a show.The storyline in this was about Abby being told by her employer that her art didn’t have enough heart, and making a list of things to [...]

      *I Received an advanced copy of this book from Harpercollins in exchange for an honest review.*I'm really trying to figure out how to review this because I, of course, I enjoyed it. It's Kasie West, obviously, it was good. But that's basically all it was for me. This is the first time I haven't REALLY shipped a couple in one of her books, I just wasn't feeling it. I willliterallyread anything and everything Kasie West writes. Gimme now.

      This was my first ever Kasie West book, and I picked it up when I was in probably my worst reading slump all year. I have to give Kasie kudos for the fact that I read the entire thing in one sitting and it managed to pull me out of my slump! It was a really cute, fast, and fun read, which is all I expected when I went into it, honestly.→ what i liked ←• Abby’s family is pretty precious. We see some surprising anxiety and agoraphobia rep in her mother, but the star of this book for me was [...]

    19. Inge on said:

      This had everything I love in a book: a to-do list, a sarcastic main character, and the best-friends-to-lovers trope. Therefore, I should have loved this book. Yet I'm left with two main thoughts.1. These two were way too needy. Tracking each other's phone, interrupting their quality time with someone else because you can't stand the idea of them having other friends, sending hundreds of texts when the other doesn't reply. This was definitely on the unhealthy side of the clingy scale.2. Agorapho [...]

      Absolutely LOVED! Full review to come closer to release date.*EDITED TO ADD REVIEW*I have always loved Kasie West's stories. From her endearing characters to the heartfelt story line that always leaves you with a smile on your face by the end. But there are some, that just resonate with me and Love, Life and The List was one such story.I connected so much with Abby in a deeper emotional level than I thought I would. In some areas she spoke to me in ways that I haven't had happen in a YA story in [...]

      3.5You have no idea how much I needed this. The last two releases by Kasie West left me more than disappointed, as you know, so I was just a tiny bit scared when I picked up Love, Life, and the List. But guess what: I didn't need to. This is one of the cutest Kasie West novels out there, as far as I'm concerned. I've read all and each of her books in just one sitting, and this one was no exception. I finished it just some hourse ago, and I already wish I could forget it completely and reread it [...]

    22. Gabby on said:

      This book was so cute. I've read a few Kasie West novels now, and I think this one is my favorite. This is a light and fluffy YA contemporary novel that follows this girl named Abby who is a painter, and she desperately wants her paintings displayed in this art show, but she is sad when she shows her boss her paintings and he rejects her and says her paintings need "more heart". So Abby creates a list of experiences she feels like she needs to have in order to become a better painter. She's also [...]

    23. Megha Patel on said:

      I swear Kasie West books are like addiction. Once I start reading I can't  stop. And this book was no exception. Usually her books are plain adorable and sweet but the this one and By Your Side felt like it went deeper. The plot was very appealing too. Abby is an artist and needs to improve her art. Or put more "emotion" into it. So in order to do that she sets out and makes a list of things that may help her find different emotions. It was really enjoyable to see her try those things.Abby is a [...]

    24. Jasprit on said:

      I’m so disappointed that I wasn’t able to enjoy this book more, my relationship with Kasie West’s books have been a bit disappointing lately, but I thought that this latest book would be a fun read. But I just wasn’t able to connect with Abby or Cooper’s characters at all, especially not Cooper’s. I know Abby had a long-term crush on Cooper and so she did find it hard moving on, but with the way that he had shut her down when she tried to open up to him last year and then just flirti [...]

      3.5/5 • this was so cute!! i'm not a big fan of unrequited love stories, but Love, Life, and the List wasn't too bad. the novel felt like a classic kasie west: cliché, adorable, and somewhat cringey (in the best way!). everything about this was super addicting and i had to binge it; is there any other way to read a kasie west novel? (no.)

    26. Katie W on said:

      First of all, I was so happy to see that this is the first in a three book series because I'm dying to get to know the Four Amigos better. Cooper and Abby are just two of the four. Abby is an artist and in an attempt to develop more "heart" in her painting, she comes up with a list. I love this idea! In a way, it's a little like a Bucket List, but it's more immediate and more about experiences and overcoming things than it is about visiting places. I think anything like this, forcing yourself ou [...]

      I’m very stingy when it comes to spending my money on books, but if there’s one author I don’t hesitate to buy a book from it’s Kasie West. I know her books will always be super cute and make me happy and Love, Life, and the List did not let me down.I loved how sarcastic Abby was. I loved the banter she had with pretty much every character in the book, but especially her equally sarcastic grandfather. I also found her mother to be a pretty empathetic character. She’s overly anxious and [...]

      I love Kasie Wests books. They're all so cute.Abby has to overcome her crush on her best friend and also grow as an artist. That's why she made the list and she intends to follow through with it.The problem is that she's alone for the summer with Cooper. How can you get over someone when he's always near you?I liked the premise of this book but the relationship just jumped out of nowhere.We see know that Cooper is aware of Abbys feelings and doesn't reciprocate them. In fact we see him get a bit [...]

      Rating: 4.5 StarsThis is the Kasie West I love!!! I loved Abby and all her sarcastic wit, and loved seeing her change and grow via "the list". Right now, I am just going to bask in all the happy feelings I am feeling. Love, Life, and the List, was one of my Can't-Wait Wednesday picks back in October, and I am happy to report, that this book delivered beyond my expectations. Here is my "Heart List" sharing all the reasons why I loved this book so much:•Abby was my kind of girl, as she was fluen [...]
