One Small Thing Reviews
Not Erin Watt’s best work, but still an addictive read!
In their second YA novel, Erin Watt narrates the story of
LizzieBeth, a seventeen year old girl who lost her sister to a car accident three years ago. Beth wants to party, have fun and make stupid decisions during her last school year, but her parents are constantly trying to smother her with their unreasonable rules and extreme reactions. In a desperate act of rebellion, Beth ends up in a party full of strangers and meets the most gorgeous ...more
This was a giant dumpster fire of a book.
The more I think about this, the more problematic it becomes. I’m still not sure the relationship would actually make it in real life. I mean, come on, who falls in love with their sister’s killer??? That’s next level craziness.
All the characters in this entire story I hated. They bully their friends and are hypocrites. I get that it was a small town but everyone was so angry over Chase going to school there. What he did to Rachel happened 3 years ago, ...more
I don’t even know what to say. I’m so horribly disappointed because while I absolutely hated The Royals series by these authors, I adored When It’s Real. So I had incredibly high expectations for One Small Thing hoping it would make me feel more like I did when I read When It’s Real.
Unfortunately, it was more along the lines of how I felt reading The Royals books.
Honestly, the only good thing about this book for me was Chase… the guy who killed Beth’s sister so that’s saying a lot I suppose ...more
This review won't be an easy one to write. One Small Thing was emotional, raw, and it evoked quite a few volatile outbursts out of me. I was entirely engrossed in this YA novel that awoke feelings in me that I haven't experienced in a long time. lI felt like my teenage self again, misunderstood, belittled, helpless, and frustrated. I have never felt this kind of emotions while reading a book. It was like I stepped into a time machine. Back to my teenage years, except I had it so much better than ...more
“You waiting for me is the ONE SMALL THING that will keep me going.”
This is hard. Hard to write. Hard to review. Why? Because I loved this book and I disliked this book.
First things first, this book teaches you many things, most importantly to follow your heart no matter what any one says. It’s hard to be pushed down, talked down to, but in the end, stay true to you and follow your own path. This book is emotional, it’s sad, it’s raw, and it definitely touches your soul.
I don’t want to say mu ...more
I think this writing duo is on to something... I know a majority of their following is really into their darker, more erotic romance (I haven't read the royals series yet), but there's something REALLY special about their standalone contemporary romances. They definitely feel YA (as they should), but not in a cheesy, obnoxious way. This is my second standalone romance from them and both have tackled some deep, thought provoking themes. Highly recommended for readers wanting a nice balance of dar ...more
3.5 “Grief and Forbidden Romance” Stars
I went into this knowing almost nothing about it, except for the fact that it was written by Erin Watt. It was almost enough to make me love it. Almost.
Unlike it happened with Paper Princess, I had a really hard time connecting with the main character here. Beth (Lizzie, or whatever the heck is her name) was the complete opposite of Ella from PP, who was strong and mature and didn’t let people walk over her.
Beth, on her turn, got on my nerves with her juven ...more
