Book Review: My Epic Spring Break (Up)

A fun and upbeat paperback original romance about a girl who finds a cheat sheet for love.

Spring break . . . heartache?

For coder extraordinaire Ashley, high school is all about prepping for college. Her love life? Virtually nonexistent. She’s never been on a date. Never been kissed. Never been in love.

When her plans veer off course, Ashley realizes she might be missing out on her high school experience. Now that spring break is finally here, Ashley vows to have fun . . . and, for the first time, follow her heart.

Starting with Walker Beech, her gorgeous, maybe-not-so-unrequited crush. But with Jason Eisler–her childhood friend turned prankster–in the picture, trouble is bound to follow. Will Ashley’s epic spring break lead her to love, or will her heart crash and burn?

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.

I’ve been looking for a book that is a quick read, something that’s entertaining, and uplifting moods, after a few minutes of browsing from my to-be-read (tbr) pile I found this book. I got curious, I don’t usually read an excerpt because I wanted to be surprised about what the book has to offer. Annddd, this book did not disappoint. I got sucked into the story because of two things, coding and Taylor Swift. I’m a swiftie too and I love being one, it connects life stuff sometimes, I just can relate.

My Epic Spring Break (Up), is a good book that I think every high schooler can relate to. It’s love, seeking for adventures, dealing with the future and aiming for what you want before college comes. The characters are just so lovely and I liked the friendships between these characters. They’re just amazing and they never give up on their goals. It’s a bit sad when Ashley had to experience losing but it turns out, that’s just another opportunity for her in a different direction. She’s lucky that she has everyone’s support behind her back, no matter what it takes friends, family are there for her.

The concept of the book is just simply beautiful. I’m sure every reader will love it. It’s simple yet entertaining. And oh… before I forget, Walker Beech, there’s something about him that I am curious about, at the same time I don’t like this guy, he smells trouble. But I’d love to know his side of story (can there be one?!) It’s going to be nice if there’s another book like this, or some other point of view from this book.

“I’ll never give up on my dreams.”

This one is my favorite quote from this book. It inspired me at some point. It’s true, never give up on your dreams no matter how hard that is. It’s always good to have purpose, to have something to look up to and inspire yourself to do more and challenge yourself on achieving those dreams.
