Finding Felicity Blog Tour: Book Review

by Stacey Kade
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Release Date: March 20, 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary


Caroline Sands has never been particularly good at making friends. And her parents’ divorce and the move to Arizona three years ago didn’t help. Being the new girl is hard enough without being socially awkward too. So out of desperation and a desire to please her worried mother, Caroline invented a whole life for herself—using characters from Felicity, an old show she discovered online and fell in love with.

But now it’s time for Caroline to go off to college and she wants nothing more than to leave her old “life” behind and build something real.

However, when her mother discovers the truth about her manufactured friends, she gives Caroline an ultimatum:Prove in this first semester that she can make friends of the nonfictional variety and thrive in a new environment. Otherwise, it’s back to living at home—and a lot of therapy.

Armed with nothing more than her resolve and a Felicity-inspired plan, Caroline accepts the challenge. But she soon realizes that the real world is rarely as simple as television makes it out to be. And to find a place where she truly belongs, Caroline may have to abandon her script and take the risk of being herself.

*Felicity is an American Drama Series*

Barnes & Noble


The best thing about Finding Felicity was undoubtedly the plot. It was very relatable, very very relatable. Maybe it was more relatable to me because I am of Caroline’s age, and the condition she is in, before she moved to the college or first few days after joining the college is something I had faced(maybe not much of the before joining condition though, but definitely the after joining condition was something I had faced when I first joined college). Finding Felicity was such a read which kept on reminding me of myself every now and then.

Finding Felicity is a story of finding oneself, of making peace with yourself. You are important and you can only save yourself, make your life better. This is one message that is given through the book, and I think this is something we should all remember.

Caroline’s character was obviously very relatable and I really loved her. Other than Caroline I really loved other small characters too, especially Lexi, who was not very friendly first but eventually she became one of Caroline’s best friends.

Had to add this paragraph!!!😅If you had not guessed till now (which I am sure you have), I should tell you this I absolutely loved this YA tale of Caroline, it was really awesome. I loved it a lot.

Final words

I think people of all age should read this book, because I feel that someway or the other everyone would be able to relate to Finding Felicity and Caroline and would totally enjoy this book.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books that surprised me

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana@That Artsy Reader Girl. Each Tuesday a new topic is assigned and we have to make a top ten list that fits the topic. This week’s topic is Books that surprised me. Here is the list…. Enjoy!!!!😋

1)Bad Boys After Dark: Dylan by Melissa Foster

I have ranted enough about why this book surprised me in my review. This is the first romance book I ever read and also the first book I reviewed on Life at 17. I never thought I would love this book, i really didn’t think…. I was really surprised when I ended up loving this book so much. When I finished reading I was so happy, just so happy that I gave this book a chance to be a part of my life.

2) Easy by Jordan S. Gray

Now another book that blew my mind away. Okay so we all have read about man who goes about having no strings attached sex but a woman doing the same? No very rarely we come across such story. This was one of the reason why the book surprised me, secondly the male lead, he was just so different from the alpha males we see in each book but still was able to make such a cosy little place in my list of best book boyfriends.

3) A Country Practice by Judith Colquhoun

In this one book there is so many different stories about different people living in the same town. The characters were very relatable. This was another book which just surprised me because I never thought it would become a book I would not want to finish reading.

4) Bluff by Julie Dill

The end of this book was unexpected and surprised me. But I was more surprised because I liked the end even though I hate it when books end like that.

5) Freak by Erin Lee

This book deserves all the stars in this world, seriously. The story was very well written and the plot was really awesome. This was another book that surprised me because I never thought I would love it this much.

6) The Mysterious Mr Quinn by Agatha Christie (not reviewed on my blog)

Oh my God!! This book was just so awesome. But then again I think I was never disappointed by the queen of crime’s novels. Before this book, I only had read novels by her, this was the first short story collection. It is so different from rest of her works, yet it was such an awesome book. Another book which I completely loved. This book surprised me because I thought that the stories would be about crime or murder mysteries, though the stories had bits and pieces of crime in them, but they can no way be termed as murder mysteries, the stories were more of the genre of literary fiction.


7) The 3 Mistakes of my Life by Chetan Bhagat (not reviewed on my blog)

This book was just in one word awesome. But that is not the reason why it surprised me, because I knew I would love it. So there is a movie made on this book, and I saw it and loved it, that is the reason I picked up this book, but then I encountered a completely different climax in the book. It just surprised me because I didn’t expect that. But still I ended up liking both the movie’s and the book’s climax.


The list ends here. I know it’s not a top ten list because there are only 7 items, but I didn’t find any other book which could fit this list.😣

What do you people think about this list? Have you read any of the books mentioned above? Did they also surprise you? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Top Ten Tuesday: Favourite Book Quotes

This my first Top Ten Tuesday post💃💃💃

So Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana@That Artsy Reader Girl. Each Tuesday a new topic is assigned and we have to make a top ten list that fits the topic. This week the topic is Favourite Book Quotes.

Here are my Favourite Book Quotes:

1) “Happily Ever After isn’t a destination, it’s an ongoing journey that never ends and only gets better.”~Incandescently by Sylvie Parizeau

2)“If he left now, it’d be too much. She’d never live again, not really, anyway. Her life would be like one of those dull black and white movies, unfulfilling and boring and empty.”~Easy by Jordan S. Gray

3)“That’s what they say, right? Live in the now. But it’s hardly ever as good as looking forward to something, when it’s perfect because it hasn’t happened yet.”Asleep From Day by Margarita Montimore

4)“I more than anyone knew how things were never black or white, but an infinite palette of grays.”~Chameleon by Zoe Kalo

5)‘‘People are sometimes driven to choices which others find incomprehensible. We have to accept that.”~A Country Practice by Judith Colquhoun

6)“You are my family now. I’ve never felt like I was part of something, other than a company, until I met you. You are my everything. Without you, none of this matters to me .”~ Corrupt Me by Jillian Quinn

7)“Fear must be embraced, accepted as natural, but never run from. Never forgotten or locked away. We must overcome it. But in banishing it, we allow it to overcome us.”~Worlds With Ruby by C P Cabaniss

8)“He’d wage war against a fire-breathing dragon to make certain she was unharmed. And Triston would lay down his own life to make bloody certain Edith lived a life full of happiness and love.”~The Disappearance of Lady Edith by Christina McKnight

9)“Grief was the most terrible feeling possible. Suffocating under the heaviness of regret. A body filled with rocks, each one placed there by a pain that grew until it hurt to move.”~Before the Rain Falls by Camille Di Maio

10)“I was lost until you found me.”~ Good Doctor by Andi Jaxon

The man

And the mountains echoed her voice, as she screamed,   

In front of her eyes was the man,  

The man who pushed her down the hills, 

The man she had loved, 

The man who stood there kissing another woman.
