Sophia has seven days left in Tokyo before she moves back to the States. Seven days to say good-bye to the electric city, her wild best friend, and the boy she’s harbored a semi-secret crush on for years. Seven perfect days…until Jamie Foster-Collins moves back to Japan and ruins everything.
Jamie and Sophia have a history of heartbreak, and the last thing Sophia wants is for him to steal her leaving thunder with his stupid arriving thunder. Yet as the week counts down, the relationships she thought were stable begin to explode around her. And Jamie is the one who helps her pick up the pieces. Sophia is forced to admit she may have misjudged Jamie, but can their seven short days of Tokyo adventures end in anything but good-bye? (Goodreads)
To be honest, the first thing that drew me to Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse was the gorgeous cover. How can you resist a cover that is that stunning and bright? And then I was drawn in even more by the summary for the book. As if I haven't mentioned this a lot lately, I'm going to say it again: I adore contemporary novels, and I seem to be reading a lot of them lately. (And there's absolutely nothing wrong with that!) Seven Days of You was definitely a great contemporary read!
There are a lot of characters in this story that you're really going to love, including the main character, Sophia, who is full of awesomeness, and has a pretty amazing mom and sister as well. Then there's Jamie, the boy Sophie had a crush on for years, who moved away but is back in Tokyo the very same week she's leaving to move to the States. WHAT?! (Yeah, you totally want to read this book now, right?) I loved so many of these characters. They were perfection. Sigh.
As I mentioned above, I can't resist a good contemporary novel. They are my favorites, and totally give me all the feels. The storyline for Seven Days of You was sweet, and completely addictive. I was hooked as I turned the pages. AND, I also absolutely loved the setting in this book. The author did an amazing job of describing Tokyo, I could totally see it so clearly in my mind, and it sounds amazing. I have to admit, I haven't read very many books set in Japan, but it totally sounds like a place I would love to visit in the future.
Overall; Cecilia Vinesse definitely has a hit on her hands with Seven Days of You! I, for one, really enjoyed the story, and I'm super excited to read more by Cecilia in the future! (Hopefully sooner than later. *wink*) Check the book out today!
