      THAT PLOT TWIST IN THE ENDIS BOOK HELLA TOOK MY BREATH AWAY ABSOLUTE BRILLIANCE At first thought, Finding Paris is very much alike to Paper Towns and Looking for Alaska After reading this book, my head was filled with thoughts on what it is about disappearing and getting lost I don t know why but I like these kind of books There s something than just getting lost you know Like they may get lost in different kind of ways but I think I ve figured out why people would like to get lost, it s not to [...]

      This review was originally posted on About to Read For Fairytale fashions, reads, and visit abouttoread Finding Paris took me by surprise with it s fast paced, unputdownable nature Sure, I was expecting a quick contemporary, but I wasn t expecting to devour the story the way I did.Part of the reason I was a little hesitant with this one is that I had read The Sweet Dead Life and it just wasn t for me There were qualities I liked about it though, and Finding Paris sounded like it would be much [...]

      Talk about mind effed Review to come Edit 01 16 15You can find of my reviews here on my blog Take Me Away The beginning of this story was very sweet and though I was intrigued, I wasn t fully immersed in the story But as it went on, things started happening and let me tell you it wasn t anything like I expected This book turned out to be a total mind eff and I am so glad I decided to read it.I m not normally a fan of road trips and lately I ve been reading them non stop I read this one because [...]

      I received a free copy via Edelweiss for review purposes I admit that the cover for Finding Paris was what initially drew me into requesting this on Edelweiss Yet I find myself bordering on hating this book.The story focuses on sisters Leo and Paris and their close bond they only have each other to rely on as their mother flits from city to city, guy to guy They can t trust their gambling stepfather, so it s just the two of them Leo and Paris against the world Then Paris ditches her sister at a [...]

      When I first read this story, I didn t know what to expect I had no idea I didn t even write down any predictions I got swept up in the story I was reading I had to know the ending and once I finished the book it was like I was ripped apart in so many ways Betrayed Yet by the actual end of the book, I was okay Finding Paris ripped me apart and put me back together again.The relationship that these two sisters have with each other is nothing but amazing because if I were any of the two sisters, I [...]

      3.5 5Finding Paris is a book I went in with much trepidation Friends of mine had not enjoyed and I was obviously a little wary However, I think lowering my expectations certainly helped me like the book The book tells the story of Leo, whose sister abandons her at a diner and leaves her a trail of clues that will help find her I have to say, I was a little put off by Leo s sister, Paris behavior in the book especially because she also steals Leo s savings How could she do this to her younger sis [...]

      Destruction isn t permanent This is an interesting book with a powerful statement But it was a little off for me normally I would LOVE this kind of book But the jumbled beginning I didn t feel like I got to know Paris or Leo well enough to have an emotional tie to them I didn t feel either way about Max either, after all was said and done.but I think it s a good book, with a good message and one that will connect and resonate with others.

      This review originally appeared on Such a Novel Idea.I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I have to say that I was drawn to this book before I even knew what it was by two things 1 the fact that it was written by Joy Preble and 2 the cover However, after reading what the book was about, I knew it was something I was just going to have to pick up I got to meet Preble in 2014 and sh [...]

      Mediocrity mediocrity everywhere For a story that is supposed to compare to Thirteen Reasons Why, Finding Paris was deeply underwhelming, and this might only be me, but I didn t feel like I connected to any character, despite the fact that they were quite well written The book opened beautifully, and personally, I loved the way Leo and Paris stuck to each other no matter what The two sisters seemed willing to do anything for each other, and older sister Paris takes advantage of this fact, leadin [...]

    13. Karla Mae (Reads and Thoughts) says:

      I ve been stucked here for 10 minutes lost on how to start writing my thoughts after finishing this book Finding Paris was an okay read however its a bit tad slow and just you know really okay The thing that kept me on reading this was the mystery of where Paris is Plus what really happened to start this chase and looking The concept of the story was actually good however theexcution of it came a bit slow and boring I m looking for action and adrenaline rushing scenes or even road tripping The [...]

      This was some serious fuckery I m still a bit floored by the reveal Love love loved the idea of this It s a mystery slash scavenger hunt and I was on board within one chapter I liked being in Leo s head and of course Max was adorable and that endingere aren t words This absolutely was not what I was expecting and I really enjoyed every page of it Huge thanks to Balzer Bray and Edelweiss for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review

      Leo and Paris were sisters, only one year apart in age They were opposites, yet did almost everything together Leo was the smart one, the one who loved math and science and wanted to be a doctor Paris was the artsy, wistful optimist, always having a smile on her face and dreaming about something fun One night, they went to the restaurant where Paris worked, and ordered a coconut cream pie That was the first time that Leo met Max, and it was also the last time that she saw Paris Leo quickly found [...]

    16. Vicki says:

      Paris and her sister Leo are very close, so close that there isn t anything they wouldn t do for each other I guess there is little that is better than the bonds between two sisters Paris is what I would call a dreamer Leo is the planner Paris wants to create beautiful things Leo wants to become a doctor Very different goals in life don t distance these sisters.One night Paris wakes her sister Leo in the middle of the night to just take off a diner where Leo sees a cute boy and approaches him b [...]

      This review can also be found on Key to Book City, check it out for Road trip novels with beautiful covers that just make me want to scream the characters destination Joy Preble truly gave us that And by the way, in case you haven t noticed already, I do enjoy beginning my reviews off with rhetorical questions that not everyone can answer since not everyone read the book Hah But seriously, back to matter that we re currently facing, Finding Paris is my pleasure I m not feeling guilt in any way, [...]

      I received Finding Paris by Joy Preble from the program, Around The World ARC Tours where you can get ARCS to read and review, and then pass on to the next person Finding Paris was amazing the whole way through The characters were great, the plot was intense with all its plot twists I found myself never wanting to put the book down In the very beginning we meet sisters Leo and Paris First off I love the way they are introduced, with Paris waking Leo up in the middle of the night for pie because [...]

    23. Christina Mandelski says:

      I love the road trip genre, I love YA romance, and I love sister family stories FINDING PARIS, has all of these things Yay , and so much When Leo s beloved and free spirited sister Paris runs away or is kidnapped did I mention there is mystery here too she drops everything to find her Paris seems a fragile soul, and Leo will do anything to protect her When Leo finds a clue taped to the leg of an Elvis statue did I mention that the book is also very funny , so begins both a literal road trip fro [...]

      Leo s sister, Paris, ditches her one night and sends her on a finders mission across Las Vegas On this mission, Leo is accompanied by a stranger she s just met, Max Along the way, Leo wonders what Paris is running from and thinks that it might be that their step father has been sexually abusing Paris This sexual abuse sub strain is far too important a topic to be relegated to a side burner in a novel.

    26. Hannah says:

      I will say that the I read this book the I hated Paris I understand that what happened to Leo was terrible but there was no need for her to do that to her sister I mean how exactly does leaving your sister stranded with no money because you stole it help her Especially when you are like hey I m sending you on hunt to find me and with a stranger nonetheless As you can see this book clearly irritated me and really it should have been called Finding A Flaky B ch.

    27. Natalie O'Brien says:

      Finding Paris is a story about finding yourself I loved the backdrop of Vegas and the way when you read the words it feels like you re actually there Paris and Leo s relationship felt so real Their bond inseparable and so loving I loved it That ending though I expected it but then again I totally didn t which was fantastic Great story I would recommend to anyone

    28. KKat says:
