    This was pretty entirely super cute I did struggle a small squidge with feeling entirely invested in the story, but it featured a bunch of nerds and an adorakble friendship turned romance with plenty of fun dialogue SO I CAN GET BEHIND THIS I also literally got behind it when I was reading and dropped it on my face Thank you to all the universe, stars, and pebbles upon the shores that I read a paperback and didn t die or lose my eyes Life can be kind.It s dual narrated by Linny and Sebastian And I can t even pick a favourite THEY RE SO CUTE Linny is totally obsessed with film and Sebastian is into astrophysics I love how their individual chapters included like scientific facts or snippets of a screenplay being written It just really made them feel like such individuals My only problem was they re both in 1st person.Soooo, I always struggle with dual narration in 1st Their voices tend to feel super much the same BUT AH WELL I also appreciated that they were both diverse and POC Linny is biracial with a Nigerian mother, and Sebastian is Mexican The story is basically all about missing people Linny s sister disappeared and Sebastian is looking for his never before met dad Now I confessbecause I have a cold, dead heart I did fail to feel really invested in both their searches I think maybe the tone of the book was TOO happy light when coupled with something that s...

    Pre reading review Tag line Love is what happens when you re looking for something else And because I m feeling single AF these days blaming The Kiss Quotient , I thought this could get me out of my funk.Post feelings Still feeling single as hell, but damn was that book imperfectly perfect The author has poured her heart and soul into this book It s a story about two characters who are dealing with some kind of loss in their own way Linny s sister disappeared without a trace Sebastian has never known his father till his mother springs upon him that his father is a famous author, who s recently resurfaced after 3 years of no one being aware of his whereabouts.Linny, who is obsessed with this author as well as movies goes on a mission to find out where exactly he has been and why he s returned She s hoping this will bring some clarification to her sister s disappearance At the same time, she has been keeping a diary of people who have disappeared in the past and resurfaced and seeing if there is a pattern that she can discover.Once Sebastian finds out about his f...

    I mean, impartially speaking, it s pretty good Things in this book movies, Miami, kissing, kissing, astrophysics, missing people, love, questions about finding your place in the world, and a bird or two.

    My full review can be found at United by Pop.This story chronicled an adorable blossoming romance that made this the perfect read, for this time of year Their growing attraction was obvious to the reader but I still enjoyed reading of their emerging emotions and tentative struggles to restrain them Scenes of an absolute adorable nature followed their accepted summer romance and I now know that no perfect date can exist if it doesn t involve a ball pit and a horde of energised twelve year olds But there was also some grit mixed in with this sweetness Both Linny and Sebastian are struggling with their own internal monsters, which adds notes of poignancy to, what became on times, a heart wrenching read They have both suffered a disappearance and it has shaped the people they have become, but they are beginning to understand that what has altered them doesn t also have to stunt them.As they ...

    Maybe people fall together while they re falling apart Okay, so this book was ASTONISHINGLY good It s addicting and super fun and stars a duo of unforgettable characters who start the summer romance to END all other summer romances.Case in point the ball pit scene I don t think I ve ever read a scene that was as swoony and perfect as that one And then it just keeps getting better from there, with incredible, cinematic and unforgettable scenes This book really captures that that magical, sun soaked feeling of summer, and then combines it with two of the most loveable and interesting YA characters I ve ever read about.Speaking of, BIRDS is dual POV, split between two very distinct and equally amazing characters Linny and Sebastian I adored both of them so much that they re new all time faves Linny, who is trying to find out what happened to her sister, is so charming, relatable and complicated And then there s Sebastian, who is just everything He s this nerdy boy with messy hair who wears shirts that say stuff like I edit Wikipedia He s just the best, and I already know readers are going to fall totally in love with him.This book also tackles a lot of really big questions about loyalty and self discovery and family in such thoughtful and unique ways It s got a really great insight into the way the people the world wor...

    Holy bananas, this book was good I loved every bit of it The famous, elderly cult writer who shows up at the old folks home where Linny volunteers, mysteriously reappearing after three years disappearance The gorgeous screenplay Linny writes to cope with the fact that her sister disappeared out the window one night and hasn t been heard from since Linny s notebook entries about people in history who disappeared and why they came back The excerpts from A Brief Compendium of Astrophysical Curiosities genius Sebastian quotes to cope with why his father disappeared The adorable, dorky, anxiety filled way Linny and Sebastian fall in love All of it magical.IF BIRDS FLY BACK is a love story, but it s about so much than romantic love It s about friendship Say what you will, but bromances are real It s about sisters Are you still running, Grace Because I m still chasing you, and my legs are about to give out It s ...

    A copy was provided by the publisher through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewI don t consider myself a big fan of summer contemporaries simply because I live on an island where it s practically summer every single day I always find them cliche and predictable, especially with the whole tourist aspect which I hate.If Birds Fly Back is the complete and total opposite of what I just described In this novel, we are presented with a mystery Linny s older sister, Grace has disappeared to god knows where and since then, Linny has been obsessed with the disappearances but most importantly the returns of random strangers Enter lvaro Herrera, famous novelist who was supposedly reported missing over 3 years ago, now lodging and seemingly retiring at Silver Springs retirement home in Florida His reappearance is just what Linny needs with her logic to figure out the mystery of her lost sister.Then we have Sebastian A boy obsessed with the mysteries of the universe and astrophysics but most importantly, the mystery that is his father Unexpected news sends...

    Let me tell you something about hands They re not one size fits all like hotel slippers Ours slot together with an audible chink At least I can hear it I had the privilege of reading an early copy of this work It s funny and sweet, and the characters are memorable, engaging and endearing It reminded me of what it was like to be young again and in love Linny is smartly written, easy to identify with and to like Sebastian is adorable and his voice is also authentic, written as a boy in his situation should be Alvaro is a mystery, like a fancy box that arrives on your doorstep you cannot wait to open it to see what s inside The rest of the characters are equally ...

    This book was SO GOOD I adored Linny and Sebastian they re both such unique, interesting, lovable but flawed characters and I want them to be my IRL friends And Alvaro He was as much a magnetic pole for the reader as he was for the characters I was so impressed by how Sorosiak was able to convey the kind of ineffa...
