    • I ve never read a Katie Contugo book before but I was happy to try it out when I received an ARC from the HarperCollins Canada Frenzy Presents event, and it was an enjoyable read Cute, fun, and refreshing The ending took me by surprise, but definitely in a pleasant way I will say though, I had a lot of trouble with connecting to the characters and the storyline I think partially due to the episodic format of the story.


    • Release date October 3, 2017DNF I think a lot of people might like this as a light summer story, but I didn t care enough about the characters to finish it Gabby and Ryan have been best friends throughout high school They sleep together at the start of the story and then get in a fight over whether it meant anything Then the story jumps back to freshman year and shows their history The writing is fine but it was definitely hard to get into anything when I didn t have a strong sense of the charac [...]


    • 2.5Overall did not like this book a ton I didn t like either of the characters and also wasn t a fan of the way the story was told Sadly2.5


    • I received an advance copy of this book for free Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss This was a YA contemporary story about two best friends Gabby was quite a quiet girl, and she really struggled with her anxiety Ryan was a lot outgoing and popular, and I could see why Gabby couldn t understand why he wanted to hang out with her.The storyline in this was about Gabby and Ryan being friends, and then being than friends The story did jump around a little bit time wise, which was a little irrita [...]


    • I received a copy from HarperCollins via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.I m not sure how to go about this review because I was confused 80% of the time so I ll break it down with what I expected vs what I got from this book.What I expected 1.A light romance read that will make me feel fuzzy I wanted a light read that will make me squeal and smile really big whenever I thought about it.2 Best friend to lovers trope As much as I prefer hate to love, I found myself anticipating Gabby an [...]


    • I won this through a First Reads Giveaway I so wanted to like this book The write up seemed promising I hadn t read a YA in awhile and was ready for a light maybe at times dramatic love story I m sorry but I did not really feel the love in this book I couldn t get into the characters very much I did not like Gabby at all and Ryan was just ok I m not even sure I d call this a true romance I did not care for the sub plot romances I did not like the ending at all No pay off I m giving this a 2 star [...]


    • Katie Cotugno s books always have a way of surprising me She develops these realistic and flawed individuals and we follow them through their daily lives We see the beauty, tragedy, and monotony of their lives and get to experience it along side them Top Ten is another solid installment that showcases the importance of friendship, what it means when that friend becomes , and what happens if it doesn t work out.Things I Liked There was this overwhelming nostalgic feeling, while being so incredibl [...]


    • wow I really didn t have high expectations for this book, but I just appreciate it so much I m so glad I did give this a chance.


    • 3.5 StarsTop Ten is exactly what is sounds like a nostalgic recap of a four year friendship told in a top ten list format This story is realistic and contains two opposite main characters The non sequential writing style is inventive, but does get a bit hard to follow I still enjoyed the story, and it truly is an emotional rollercoaster.This book recaps the friendship of two teens about to head off to college It focuses on their top ten moments, some good and some bad, but all of which define th [...]


    • 3.5I think Top Ten was a very interesting introduction to Cotugno It was told in an episodic format that I personally really enjoyed It alternates between the four years that the two main characters have been friends I didn t find it as confusing as others did and personally thought it served the type of story really well.I also loved some of the topics and diversity that were included in this story Gabby has severe anxiety and identifies as bisexual Considering those were two things I can comme [...]


    • I feel like I just lived through four years of the trials and tribulations of high school with Gabby and Ryan And I mean that in both the best and worst ways possible because whoever said high school is the best time of your life is a terrible liar These two characters had me wanting to hug them, wanting to shake some sense into them, and most of all just wanting them to find their way and be happy With each chapter visiting a pivotal time in their friendship, Top Ten delves into the ups and dow [...]


    • I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn t connect with it unfortunately There were too many timelines going on at the same time, and it became very confusing I felt like because of the constantly shifting timeline, there ended up being some loose threads that were never resolved The current timeline for Ryan and Gabby also ended up feeling pretty rushed and just not fully fleshed out I really enjoyed the characters and thought this had a great premise, the style just wasn t for me p [...]


    • MY RATING 4 5I received an arc from Harper Collins in exchange for an honest review Let s start this review off with me saying that I love Katie s works I adored How to Love, and yes, 99 days was kind of problematic, and I didn t really read her other release from this year, Fireworks, yet but I still hold onto the fact that she will be one of my automatic buys Have you seen the cover designs of her books Granted, I shouldn t be purchasing a book based on it s cover art because the graphic desig [...]




    • An arc of this book was sent to me by the publisher HarperCollins via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review Top Ten is a book set out to release on October 3, 2017 It follows the story of Ryan and Gabby, two very different best friends that at certain points of their friendship spark up feelings for each other These two make a list of the Top ten moments of their relationship based on their four years at high school, changing from dual points of view and guiding us through their past and pr [...]


    • This is a case of it s not you, it s me , because this just wasn t a me book but I do recommend it for the following reasons bi protagonist with anxiety cute contemporary story accurate representation of high school the best family focus on sports hockey unique method of storytelling dual point of view, told throughout four years of high school very fast readWhy did I not like it Let s see I had no love for either of the main characters, or any of the characters, for that matter I wasn t a fan o [...]


    • DNF 43%I just can t I m too bored, and I m getting too old to pull through things I m not really feeling Moving on.


    • I had such high hopes for Top Ten, seeing as I d enjoyed Cotugno s previous books, but sadly Top Ten was such a disappointing read for me The beginning of the book I actually enjoyed, best friends Ryan and Gabby find themselves over their heads one night, I don t want to say too much and give it away, but the way things ended, I wanted to know what would happen next, as both Ryan and Gabby would be headed off to college, and with them being friends for so long, would their friendship be able to [...]


    • Rating 4.5 StarsI really loved this one, but you know, endings I really loved this book, and as an homage to Ryan, Gabby, and their lists, I will give my top ten reasons why I loved this book.1 Ryan, on the surface, appeared to be this happy go lucky jock, who was super popular, could have any girl he wanted, and thought life was a great big party In reality, he felt alone in crowds and yearned for one on one interactions, he felt abandoned by his super critical father, and he spent most of this [...]


    • Its a solid contemporary I was a little disappointed with the ending I get that friendships are important I really do And in real life, I love the idea of a boy and girl being best friends with no sexual tension But I am a sap of a garbage person and in my books I want people to end up together happily ever after.



    • You can find the full review and all the fancy and or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight I read this book in one day In fact, I kept reading chapters on my phone every chance I got, because it was so good So let us discuss The Things I Loved Such a realistic portrayal of how different people anticipate the college situation So many books present characters who all just want college to come ASAP, there s no worry about it, it s all positive But hi, that isn t life I was freak [...]


    • I have such conflicting feelings about Top Ten by Katie Cotugno On the one hand, I absolutely loved that we got the story between two friends, one with a bisexual character too And I was hoping that this would be like what Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg was for me While there are some very strong elements to Top Ten, I do think the way the book is organized led to some confusion on my part.The book is told in the dual voices of Ryan and Gabby, two unlikely people who unexpectedly forge [...]


    • Let s talk about how amazing Top Ten was shall we I loved 99 days by Cotugno so I was really looking forward to reading another book by her, I was not disappointed at all with Top Ten I got this book from the library and I fully intend on buying my own copy of it, that s how much I loved this book I loved the characters, the way Cotugno told the story, the choices she made for both Ryan and Gabby in the novel, I loved every second of this book so much so that I didn t want it to end Longer revie [...]



    • This review also appears on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews Thank you to HarperCollins Canada for providing a review copy of the book All thoughts and opinions are my own.Top Ten is a novel that exceeded all of my expectations I was not a fan of Katie Cotugno s 99 Days at all in fact, I pretty much hated it so I tried to go into Top Ten with an open mind and ended up really enjoying it It s also no secret that I love the friends to trope so that probably explains some things Here are [...]


    • Loved itJust so amazing and smart and heartfelt Gorgeously written I loved these characters, especially prickly, lovely Gabby, and loved reading their story.


    • 1 Voice, voice, voice Katie Cotugno always nails her characters voices in this enviably effortless way that makes me want study her books after my initial read 2 Unidealized portrayal of friendship Main characters Ryan and Gabby s friendship is solid, but it s far from perfect I loved seeing the highs and lows, and how both characters grew and stretched with their relationship Their off and on romantic feelings for each other, too, are so well written 3 Positive representation Gabby battles soci [...]


    • Here s the thing about TOP TEN It s a quieter contemporary that is about two people who are important to each other and some of the most significant moments of their relationship and lives In true Cotugno fashion, it certainly managed to weave in those complicated, imperfect characters and feelings and I appreciated that a fair bit I do wish I d been a touch invested in the characters, but I still liked it overall.
