Very good and entertaining!

Where does Paper Valentine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I like the performance of this book! The actress is really good at making characters distinct, and the baseline narration was also really lovely. Typically I don't find books written in present tense to be enjoyable but I think the voice acting made it really nice.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Paper Valentine?

The reveal! It surprised me, and I had decided early on what I thought had happened!

Which character – as performed by Caitlin Prennace – was your favorite?

Finney! So good, such good acting!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was honestly a lot spookier than I expected, but that was really good. And it made me sentimental, as this is a book I would have absolutely lost my mind fawning over in middle and high school.

Any additional comments?

I really like this book! I think as a YA story it is really cool. As someone with an eating disorder it was interesting to see the story of the friend of someone who suffered with ED. I think the story is pretty true to what I and a lot of other people experience. That being said if hearing someone say sort of ignorant, sometimes meanspirited (out of misunderstanding) things about anorexia, then this book might not be easy to get through, as it features very prominently.
