Love and Other Alien Experiences by Kerry WinfreyRelease Date July 11, 2017DNF 34% Thanks so much to the publisher for sending me over an E ARC for an honest review via Netgalley thank you again Okay, I was so swayed to pick this book up, because, I mean, aliens ALIENS Me and aliens are like and Bigfoot but not as rapid as my love for the big furry creature I was always fascinated by it as a child and the stories that I would read thank you, junior high librarian for letting me sneak out the ref [...]
I had wanted to read fellow YA blogger Kerry s novel for a while and so when I was in a reading slump, whereby I could only read fun contemporary young adult novels, it seemed like a perfect choice.Mallory Sullivan has suffered from severe anxiety and agoraphobia since her father left without warning She hasn t left her house in weeks and is humiliated when her classmates pick her to be on the school prom committee Because high school is cruel, they start the stayathome hashtag and she desperate [...]
3.5 starsHonestly, I didn t remember requesting this, but I was intrigued by the synopsis when it came up in my review pile I liked Mallory She is a dynamic MC and I did like being in her head It was interesting to see her navigate her world and eventually branch out She was definitely easy to root for.Plot wise, it was a bit repetitive, but it makes sense in the story I liked seeing all of the shenanigans that Jenni and Lincoln set themselves up for And the last couple of chapters were the best [...]
This book was adorable I read it when I was sick and all alone in a foreign country and I just needed something to cheer me up a little Mission accomplished I didn t even mind being trapped in my hotel room sipping tea and eating chicken soup because I didn t want to put this book down This story is sweet and funny and will just make you happy It s also short and fast paced the perfect book for reluctant readers or anyone who needs to get out of a book slump
I received an e arc from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review 3.5 stars At some point in Love and Other Alien Experiences, bff Jenni references the 80s movie, Sixteen Candles There is a Sixteen Candles esque vibe to this entire novel about Mallory, a girl who suffers from agoraphobia and anxiety when her father takes off She is unable to step outside of her house, and has to attend school via video Her brother, Lincoln, and above mentioned Jenni, hatch a mad plan to draw Mallory back into t [...]
Did you find this review helpful Find of my reviews at Pop Goes The Reader I wonder what could have stopped Dad from leaving A cup of coffee from Mom Tripping over the rug One less sarcastic remark from me If I could live it over again, could I fix it and avoid all this I wish I could be like Lincoln his reaction was the exact opposite of mine While I shrunk further into myself, Lincoln seemed to grow two inches overnight He got extroverted, he smiled , he laughed all the time It s almost like [...]
I am safe I am secure I am capable.It s rare to you find a YA book mental health book with such relatability grounded in modern technology, but Kerry Winfrey has made such a thing come to life Mallory Sullivan is a teenage girl who after having a meltdown at the Cheesecake Factory with her family has remained inside the confines of her house for months with what her therapist calls an anxiety disorder She spends most of her time on We Are Not Alone WANA , an online forum where local teens from t [...]
Update July 30th 2017 This book is just as cute as I remember it.Original review Copy received through NetGalleyFull review on my blog illbefinealonereads
Rushed ending, guessed the plot twist a few chapters in But still kinda cute.
There are certain stories that make you happy to have read them LOVE AND OTHER ALIEN EXPERIENCES is one of those reads It is sweet and funny and romantic and a little bit sad Its main character, Mallory Sullivan, is interesting and entertaining, sympathetic, amusing, and braver than she knew herself to be And with her well meaning if slightly devious brother Lincoln and best friend Jenni, two cute boys, and a seemingly outrageous plan to achieve the impossible, it promises to make you laugh, smi [...]
Rating 4.5 StarsThis, for me, was the right book at the right time I had just set aside a book that I was not getting into, and I found myself immediately absorbed in Love and Other Alien ExperiencesVE REASONS TO READ LOVE AND OTHER ALIEN EXPERIENCESThe Sullivan Family I was a huge fan of Mallory and Lincoln They had a very special sibling bond It was endearing they way they looked out for each other, and seriously, how could I not love a family with the motto Why Be Serious When You Can Be Sarc [...]
4.5 stars This is the second book this year I ve read where the main protagonist has agoraphobia, and I found this a pretty good portrayal of it, not that I m any expert I did really enjoy the story and the characters in this book and the romance was ADORABLE I could immediately predict who Beammeup was but I didn t mind that it took Mallory so long to figure it out because the slow burn was really really great I love Jake 10 points to Jake Overall, definitely, definitely pick this one up.
I really loved this laugh out loud contemporary Mal is relatable and interesting and flawed and brave The pacing was seriously perfect, and I just want to hug all of these characters they were each so distinct and vibrant.I never say this about contemporary books why , but MORE PLEASE.

This story follows a young, agoraphobic girl named Mallory who cannot leave her house after her dad leaves After being nominated for homecoming queen, Mallory doesn t know what to do.Love and Other Alien Experiences was completely different from what I thought it would be Though predictable with stereotypical characters, I found this entertaining in itself and it had some surprising twists that I found very light This is a great novel to get out of a reading slump or just for a very light, fun, [...]
I LOVED this book It has romance, puppies, aliens, homecoming dance drama, rocket ships, and two hot brothers The characters are funny and kind, and they value their friendships above all else, even while dealing with serious issues like anxiety, abandonment, and bullying Love and Other Alien Experiences made me laugh out loud, but it also made me care deeply about the protagonist, and than once, pound the table and yell MAKE OUT ALREADY For the record, the main love interest is one of the hott [...]
Super cute, light and fun, but with an authentic and empathetic approach to anxiety and panic disorders Really enjoyed this one.
I was provided with an e galley of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.The cover of this book drew me in and the description sealed the deal I love reading books about nerdy girls I rated LAOAE 4 stars because there is a lot to like about this book and a few things that either made me groan or scratch my head.First, did I mention how much I enjoyed the nerdiness It immediately made this title feel like an old friend, on par with Geekerella in my feels depart [...]
What did I think I ADORED IT SO MUCH I WILL BE THROWING THIS BOOK AT EVERYONE Okay deep breath I gotta pull it together Let me attempt to put my fangirly ramblings into actual sentences.We get to be inside the head of the awesome protagonist, Mallory She has anxiety disorder with agoraphobic tendencies and because of this, she hasn t left the house in months She s self conscious, sarcastic, and my new favorite.There s nothing better than being in the head of the right protagonist, and her voice [...]
While I liked the main character Mallory and felt her to be believable The story seemed formulaic at times and I wasn t a big fan of the romance in it.I received an ecopy of this book through Netgalley however, my opinions are my own.
Attention all nerds, geeks and various others who believe there is alien life out there, this is the latest in great nerd centric fiction With humour, alien message boards, handsome and slightly irritating boys next door, and a healthy dose of sarcasm, Love and Other Alien experiences is a fantastic and fun book Mallory hasn t left her house in months She attends school via webcam and spends her free time on the local online alien discussion board, where she enjoys arguing with the irritating Be [...]

3.5 starsJen Pop Goes the Reader recommended Love and Other Alien Experiences to me, so OBVIOUSLY I had to go request it from NG Then, I actually just bought it even though I was approved because 1 the egalley was a Word Doc changed into a PDF which no my eyes and 2 it was like 4 bucks and why not I have no regrets.For once, the romance was actually one of my least favorite aspects I mean, I shipped it from the start, but I feel like their chemistry was just a little bit off, partially because I [...]
Original review here tristareneareads.tumblr Rating I decided to read this book out of simple curiosity, because well It is not every day I find a book about an agoraphobe teenager infatuated with aliens Am I the only one who s never watched The X Files Some people could characterize Mallory Sullivan as anything but a normal high school student Anxiety is keeping her from attending high school and she d rather spend time on an alien experience message board But Mallory Sullivan is probably like [...]
