  • For Sarah being a first time author this was an excellent first attempt.So the beginning was a little hard to follow, but when you get into it a few chapters and you will be hooked.The ability to write a story that people can relate with is a talent most authors do not have. This story captures Melanie's anxieties and insecurities and being a freshman in a top 10 university. You can sense how she struggles with her lack of experience and naivety throughout the story. During Melanie's second seme [...]


  • The Other Summer Girl is listed as a new adult contemporary romance. I would categorize it more as a Young Adult realistic fiction. There was romance, and it certainly took up a lot of the book, at least in the main characters eyes, but I think a much bigger focus of the book was watching Melanie adjust to college life during her freshman year. The Other Summer Girl is a difficult book for me to review, and I am going to attempt to explain why. On one hand The Other Summer Girl is excellent. Sar [...]

  • I was going to give a 2 star rating to the book, but the end piqued my interest and now I want to read the second book.Why the low rating? First of all most of the book happens in Spring. The title says Summer. That wasn't going to be a problem until I started to wonder about the rest of the title. Where was the other girl? She was under Melanies nose all this time. Hints were thrown at her during the book and she brushed them off. Well, I didn't, and I am sure neither will you, and I knew who t [...]


  • The Other Summer Girl was a book that had a lot of promise for me so that's why I accepted the copy from Sarah Towne for a review. I love New Adult Romance books generally although some have been falling flat to me. I have been in a bit of a reading slump lately so figured this quick read will pull me out of it. Sadly, it didn't. I'm not starting out by saying it was a horrible story but it just wasn't for me. I'm not a huge fan the third person writing style so usually I shy away from those boo [...]


  • I read this book in one sitting, and I have to say that it was definitely a unique read and for that I loved it! I thought Melanie's perspective was an authentic POV of a young woman going through a socially trying time as a freshman in college. This is not your typical boy meets girl, girl meets boy, they fall in love, etc. etc. Lleyton and Melanie's relationship is plagued with insecurities and moments that you don't want Melanie to enjoy necessarily because she is infatuated with this young m [...]


  • Okay I was given this book by the author Sarah D. Townes for my read and an honest review. The gist of the story is about an inexperienced young girl and her freshman year of college at a major midwest university, trying to adjust being away from family. She isn't the typical young university student partying and fun loving chicha, instead she is the geeky nerd on her floor until she meets a hot Australian tennis player who captures her heart without her even getting it.Honestly I had a hard tim [...]


  • Loved this book. The author skillfully weaves together the social anxieties of an innocent freshman girl living in the party dorm at a large Midwestern university and the love story between Melanie and Lleyton. The book starts off in the second semester of Melanie's freshman year, and instead of drawing out the struggles of 1st semester in an entire section of the book, she throws in bits and pieces - the important moments - throughout the first fourth of the book. I like how she's done this bec [...]


  • Successful debut novel! The Other Summer GirlSarah D. TowneGreat story about an innocent college girl who seems to struggle emotionally with the shift to college. It's a refreshing look at the college experience and with a romantic interest. Lleyton is Melanie's first college kiss and their friendship/romance has its up's and down's. A couple female characters in the book show how Melanie is resistant to trust female friendships. The Other Summer Girl is full of twists and by the end you wonder [...]


  • This review was originally posted on The Bumbling BookwormI wanted to enjoy this book, and I'm so disappointed that I didn't. Much of that was due to the fact that I'm Australian, and a lot of the things I took issue with wouldn't trouble someone who knows little about Australia. There are the bones of a good book in here, however I found it too difficult to see past my issues with the book to fully enjoy it. A lot of those issues can be fixed with a good editor and some thorough research, and I [...]


  • This is a very interesting story. I do not want to give away any of the plot aspects in this review; the reader should get to enjoy those on his/her own. The writing in the story is clear and the author uses a flashback technique that keeps a reader's interest elevated. The protagonist, Melanie, is both sympathetic and relatable. You can imagine meeting her in real life--especially at college. I found myself rooting for her success and sympathizing when she took that first bite of vegemite: It r [...]


  • I was given a copy from Sarah D. Towne for an honest review!!!The first part of the book is slow and can get confusing at times as it switches between the Now & the Past when Melanie first started at college. I will also have to say the third person annoyed me, as Sarah would write in the now and then switch into third person and then back to the now. But I couldn't put the book down, just before halfway you get really sucked in.For Sarah's first novel she has done a good job and I think she [...]


  • An original and interesting coming of age story through the eyes of an interesting character. Wrapped in the story are the insecurities of new circumstances, romance and friendships in various forms. This is the first book in a series and I found it enjoyable and interesting. I look forward to the other books in the series. 3.5 stars
