About the Book

Finding Mr. Better Than You
by Shani Petroff
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Release Date: January 14, 2020
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Camryn has been dating Marc FOREVER—since freshman year! She dropped out of volleyball to go to all his games, switched her schedule around to be in his favorite class, and has been busting her butt to get into Columbia so they can go to the same college. So when Marc suddenly, and very publically, breaks up with her a week into their senior year so that he can date the new transfer student, she’s absolutely devastated.

But why be sad, when you can get even? Inspired by her favorite movies, Camryn decides that the best revenge is a Senior Year well lived, starring a boy who is ever so much better than her ex. With a little help from her friends, Cam is going to have the Best. Senior. Year. Ever.


This was such a cute story of friendship and finding oneself! The book starts out with basically every Seniors worst nightmare: being dumped and finding out you most likely won’t get accepted into your first (and only) choice of University. Which immediately brought me back to the stress of applying to college and (im)patiently waiting on those acceptance, or rejection, letters!

I love the focus on friendship in this book! It’s so wholesome to see healthy friendships in ya stories, as well as pointing out that friends are just as (if not more) important as having a boyfriend/girlfriend is! I also think Cam’s love of all things romance was such a cute touch! As you often see in a fun montage in rom coms, Cam went through a lot of changes and self-discovery to become comfortable with who she is now throughout the story.

Now, I want to say that this story is written very much from a high school perspective. So, don’t come into this story expecting mature and “settled” characters. They are young and may act juvenile, but they are finding out who they are along the way. If you are expecting something a bit more “adult,” then this may not be the read for you, but if you want something cheesy and lighthearted then I definitely recommend this story! I also think a lot of teenagers will relate to this book and find a bit of their struggles reflected in the book. The characters felt so realistic and I wish I would have had a book like this while I was in high school!

How to Speak Boy Review

About the Book

Quinn and Grayson have been fierce speech and debate rivals for years. They can’t stand one another, either in competition or in real life.

But when their AP Government teacher returns their school assignments to the wrong cubbies, they begin exchanging anonymous notes without knowing who the other is.

Despite their differences, the two come together through their letters and find themselves unknowingly falling for the competition. Before the state tournament, the two of them need to figure out what they want out of life, or risk their own future happiness. After all, what’s the point of speech and debate if you can’t say what’s in your heart? 


Happy pub week! This book came out on Tuesday this week and I’m so excited to share my review with you! This was such a fun little read! The characters are relatable, witty, and a lot of fun to read about! This was such an adorable little book and a nice lighthearted story to take your mind off of the world!

So, our characters are competitive. Like, debate team competitive. Which I never really entered into this world in high school, so can’t say that I’m much of a debater (even if I am an arguer). But anyways, How to Speak Boy is a modern take on an enemies to lovers story for high schoolers. If you love rom coms, then this is a story for you!
