3.5 stars What s wring with reality Nothing, I say in a small voice Unless your reality sucks Then what s wrong with wanting something or better This was a super fun, super quick read I love that we re seeing so many college YA books this year and I thought Finding Felicity was an excellent addition I thought Caroline was a relatable MC and it s was so easy to follow her just trying to live her life goingo college, crushing on a guy, dealing with awkwardness and insecurities I also really like [...]
I think what makes this a challenging read for me is that Caroline is reminds me of myself in some ways She s vulnerable and self conscious and timid It makes you want to strangle her, comfort her and sympathize with her in turns She s ultimately a super realistic new college student, finding her wayL the props about the Felicity TV show undercurrent I LIVED for that show Although Caroline mentioning the show is older than me makes this reader feel preeeety old.
I read this in one day, only taking breaks for work and to Google the Felicity wiki I was a huge fan of Felicity, and Caroline felt like another much, much younger version of me I loved reading her story and watching her come into her own Now I m going to have to binge watch Felicity I have all the dvds, but I ll probably Netflix it Caroline style Team Noel forever
Between 2017 and now I ve been seeing and books featuring a college setting, and I couldn t be any happier I wish they were around four years ago when I was starting my freshmen year Finding Felicity is quirky and heartwarming Stacey Kade perfectly captures the feeling of not only freshmen year but also starting anew When Finding Felicity first begins we re quickly let in on Caroline s big secret she s created a fake friend group inspired by the old 90s show Felicity to appease her mother It s [...]
Caroline does not have friends But her mom doesn t know that She made her mom believe she has a lot of friends, but in truth, she bases her friends from characters of an old TV show called Felicity That s why she s excited to go to college and start new.You have to admit, that plot is just amazing and makes you curious That worked for me Either way, I read anything by Stacey Kade, I like her wrting style and the way her characters voices are so real.Anyway, let s start off with the characters Ca [...]
DNF at 200 pages There is a sex scene involving alcohol where the lines of consent are blurred For that reason I had to put this book down If you are going to put a sex scene in a book, all parties must be sober, enthusiastic, and consent must be explicit, unless you are talking about the issue of rape sexual assault, which this book did not address up to what I had read Treatment of women in this book is questionable, with the male love interest being very controlling of the main character and [...]
I ve been excited about this book since the first time I heard about it, and it did not disappoint I loved it, not just as a rabid Felicity fan but also as someone who very much saw college as an opportunity for reinvention I cringed for with and cheered for with Caroline in equal measures Team Ben forever.
I expected to enjoy this , but it was still compulsively readable Review TK
I received an ARC of Finding Felicity from Edelweiss Thank you Stacey Kade and Simon Schuster for the opportunity to read this title 3.5 Stars Full Disclosure I was a HUGE fan of the show Felicity Its run coincided with my post graduate years To this day, I am a Keri Russell fan because of her amazingly beautiful turn as the angst riddled, love struck, awkward Felicity So, when I read the description of Kade s book, I was already in love, without ever having read one page Crazy, I know, but what [...]
Rounded up from 3.5 stars.A big thank you to Simon Schuster and Edelweiss for an ARC of this YA novel.As a recovering introvert myself and a fan of Keri Russell, I was drawn to the plot of this book Adjusting to life at college can be filled with landmines and I think this story manage to telescope many of them in with a relatively small cast of characters Caroline is a likable protagonist and I found myself rooting for her throughout the book She definitely makes some unwise choices, but we all [...]
I was once a shy and awkward college freshman who had watched FELICITY as a high school senior ahem, the year it originally aired But this book just did not wow me Caroline was TOO awkward and weird, and the Felicity obsession TOO over the top This book just left me wanting to rewatch the TV show.
This novel is fantastic The characters are relatable and so is the dialogue You ll feel the ups and downs of Caroline s college experience along with her Great job, Stacey
Compulsively readable and so relatable to my introvert self I flew through this book
I remember watching Felicity when I was youth I remember the hair cut and trying to figure out which one she would choose over Ben or Noel and trying to figure out one s path in college I really enjoyed the friendships with the many people that she meets in this book for lexi to Tori and Del and Liam Caroline was lying to her mom about her friendships and trying to make new friends in College Overall I enjoyed this book.
July 2015 OKAY New Stacey Kade book in the works Uhm, yes, please Here s some synopsis stuff twitter StaceyKade status andchristiantrimmer blog Initial thoughts Well, at least I didn t make up all of my friends.
This book was different from what I expected, but it really worked for me I loved the show Felicity and thought the references to the TV show wonderful I was expecting this to be of a romance and kept trying to figure out if I liked Liam or not When it turned out that this book was about Caroline s self discovery and becoming comfortable with herself, it was even better than I expected Caroline s growth throughout the book was a slow discovery which I felt to be completely believable I enjoyed [...]
Oh, dang I didn t even remember that I already shelved this But a YA novel about the show FELICITY Ummmm, AMAZING.
I expected a little from this book than what I ended up getting from it As a person who has often used fictional characters to work through problems I expected to relate to Caroline s struggle to find herself in college , but in the end it just felt fake Which is entirely the point Caroline s introverted nature is something of which I have a little of, and what made it easier to root for her, but ultimately I wished for ambition from Caroline outside of her social life.This is a quick read abo [...]
