The subject just pisses me off and makes me sad simultaneously because the once cute, likeable characters are now just not so cute and likeable. Review originally posted on Rather Be Reading Blog I always wonder what it is about writing that actually makes me feel the same stomach flips as the main character. Sometimes It Happens has everything I love about contemporary ya. I literally inhaled this book. The tone, the voices, and the style are so different.

Oh, sweet Noah, how I adored you! Thank you for signing up, fellow book lover! Barnnoldt herself is not a particularly sympathetic character. I thought it really suited the book to be written that way, My main problem was Hannah. Hannah and her ex, Lacey and her ex, Ava and her ex, Ava and Noah, Hannah and the girl her ex cheated with, Lacey and her best friend With the way each chapter ends, it’ll have you reading and reading till the very end.


The ultimate luxury for me is curling up with a good book and a warm blanket.

Review: Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt

Before the Summer break, Hannah saw her boyfriend Sebastian kissing another girl. She heads to her car, rummages around in her glove compartment, and comes back. This is my first time reading this author and I liked her voice enough, however, to give another one a shot sometime.

I liked the style of writing, I liked the character and I loved the whole genre plot of the story. Bethie July 13, at 6: Because there are so many excuses made for Hannah’s indiscretion. I really don’t know what to say about Sebastian. She goes along with whatever Ava says because she trusts her judgement and she believes Ava is looking out for her best interest.

Honestly, it was a matter of hours. She knows she will lose her best friend sometlmes a result of it, but how can she hate what she did with Noah when it feels so right?

Maybe the author should have just written about Noah and had a different story. None of the characters stood out to me; they were all bland caricatures with no real personality.

But Ava’s boyfriend, Noah, is definitely around–and such a good guy that he snags Hannah a job at t This novel opens on the first day of Hannah’s senior year, but the story really starts on the last day of her junior year. Visit her at LaurenBarnholdt. I really enjoyed it. I was happy with the way the story went, but it seemed like it just abruptly ended.


She’s like that one gossipy girl in high school that everyone hates. Someties Ava was such a bitch, then why was Hannah her sometimes it happens lauren barnholdt Her sleeping with her best friend’s boyfriend the goodreads summary says it was just a “passionate kiss” but it barnholrt was a sometimes it happens lauren barnholdt time coming.

Would I read it again? She scampers away obediently before Lacey has a chance to threaten any more litigation. He sticks up for her too and even though he falters a bit, he does show a good amount of self control throughout the story especially for a teenage boy.
