Love And Other Theories by Alexis Bass
Release Date: December 31, 2014
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: Love and Other Theories is a fast-paced twist on the coming-of-age novel . . . and the romantic comedy.
Aubrey and her best friends made a pact to play by the guys' rules when it comes to dating. They're hoping the rules will keep them from experiencing high school heartbreak--they don't realize that these rules could just as easily keep them from opening their hearts and minds. And when new boy Nathan Diggs moves to town, Aubrey starts to think that some rules are meant to be broken.
With equal parts bite and romance, topped off with an irresistibly engaging voice, Alexis Bass's debut novel is one you won't want to miss.
My Thoughts: I loved the premise of this one! I thought it sounded really cute and interesting.
And while it was both, I just had a hard time with it. I felt like too much was happening, but at the same time, not enough. I also thought the characters sounded really young.
We are introduced to Aubrey and her group of friends. They pretty much feel that boys aren’t worth the trouble and not to get too close. They have their own set of rules on how to handle love and romance.
I liked meeting all the different characters and I liked seeing things from Aubrey’s point of view. I also liked both boys in the book. I felt like they both added something to the mix. And I can understand why she wanted both of them in her life.
Love And Other Theories wasn’t perfect but it was good, just not as good as I wanted it to be. I feel like sometimes I’m too old for certain Young Adult books, and that is ok! I still enjoy reading them and even if one doesn’t hold up to my expectations, I know they will for the younger crowd.
I liked the plot, I liked the characters but I just felt like this one was maybe too young for me! And thats alright!
Overall: I did like how smooth things went! The writing was awesome because you could just follow along like you were right there. Things just flew by on the pages! I liked the concept of this one! Probably more of a 3.5 cupcake rating for me!
Cover: Its cute! Not very colorful but still unique. Love the heart!
