    1 thought on “Any Boy But You

    1. Any Boy But Youis a superbly cute tale set in a town called North Pole where the Christmas season lasts all year long. It reminds me of a fluffy, less angsty Romeo and Juliet story.Elena Chestnut is struggling to come to terms with the fact that her family’s sporting goods business is in trouble. They’re barely staying afloat, and her parents are thinking of moving away. It doesn’t help that her arch enemies and business rivals, the Princes, are thriving. To make matters worse, the Prince [...]

    2. 2.5 starsI loved the premise of this. I adore the idea of arch enemies secretly falling for each other even though they don't know it. Sadly it fell a bit flat for me. I liked Elena and Oliver well enough. They're both standoffish and sort of bitchy, but it's mostly due to a ridiculous feud that's been going on between their families. And man, did that cause a lot of dramatics throughout the story. When Elena and Oliver started acting nicer to each other, the banter between them was cute and it [...]

    3. Finally something to end my disappointing books streak.I was sold when I read You've Got Mail in the summary, and it delivered.This was a cute read. Mrs. Hammerle's writing style is super; she managed to intertwine this book with great characters, a fun romance, while at the same time touching on some serious subjects too. It was all well executed. I had a hard time putting it down, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

    4. I love this series. I've read the books out of order but their all standalone stories so it doesn't really matter. The North Pole is my favourite fictional town and I can't wait to see what Julie Hammerle will come up with next. When I read the synopsis of this book I expected the story to be sweet, but predictable. What I got was so much more. Any boy but you, wasn't the fiery hate relationship I was expecting.Elena and Oliver are on opposite sides. They are literally working on opposite sides [...]

    5. super easy read. read it in a day. but it's very infuriating due to how juvenile the characters and writing are.

    6. I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.Most contemporary books that are out there tend to happen during the summer, and at this time of year, I like to read more wintery stories. When I heard about this book, especially with its enemies to lovers trope, I knew it would be for me, and I was right.In Any Boy But You, our main character, Elena, is struggling to come to terms with the fact that her families business is in trouble, and s [...]

    7. Any Boy But YouJulie HammerleReceived from NetgalleyANY BOY BUT YOU by Julie Hammerle is the first book in the North Pole, Minnesota series. Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains swearing, snowball fights, and sexual tension that could melt the North Pole. Read at your own risk. ANY BOY BUT YOU is the story of Elena and Oliver. Their families are rivals as both families own sporting goods stores, but lately both stores are really really slow. Oliver comes up with a Pokemon Go type [...]

    8. I really liked this young adult story that reminded me of those Shakespearian tragedies that featured families that had feuds lasting generations but had a romance entangled in it.Elena Chestnut worked in her family’s sporting goods store which was struggling to keeping afloat thanks to the rival sporting goods store run by Oliver Prince’s family. Right from the beginning, the author set up the Chestnut versus Prince family feud. Thanks to the title, I already suspected how the story would c [...]

    9. Oh boy, oh boy!!! I'm pretty sure this book was made for me! I'm a HUGE fan of You've Got Mail (I couldn't even tell you how many times I've seen that movie, but I've always loved it!!!), and I absolutely adore Gilmore Girls! Add in a star-crossed lovers/dueling families element and you get Any Boy But You!This book was adorable and I really, really didn't want to put it downe morning after finishing it, I was suffering from some serious sleep deprivation because I actually refused to put it dow [...]

    10. What seemed to be a convoluted plot made for a nice romantic comedy.Elena sees her family business go down the drain when their rivals for generations create a new game that becomes a craze in their small town. When she decides to give the game a try, she meets someone, a new friend. And she has no idea it is Oliver, the very creator of said game. Oliver is just too socially awkward and now he is grounded, without his computer until his Latin grade go up and forced to be tutored by the rivals' h [...]

    11. Super cute story set in a town that celebrates Christmas 365 days of the year in a quirk way that'll remind readers of Stars Hollow, Connecticut from Gilmore Girls, but where gay, lesbian and bisexual characters are relatively common. It's You've Got Mail for the Pokémon Go generation, but that doesn't mean that the characters, including the characters are infallible. They're flawed, but that just made me love them more. Can't wait for the next two books in the series.

    12. *This book was received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*This was an okay read. I liked that through the app Oliver and Elena unwittingly fell in love with each other although in real life they are sworn enemies. I did find the book hard to get into at first due to the coldness of Elena's character, however I also see it is necessary to show her character development as by the end of the book she is much more sympathetic and overall just pleasant. I did however find parts of the st [...]

    13. Sweet, funny, tons of heart. It's the post-Christmas, Stars-Hollow, snowball-fights-and-boyfriends book you've been waiting for.

    14. I have had a drought of adorable, cheesy books in my life. That’s right – this Book Princess has been reading serious books. Books full of non-cliches, not as much funnies for no reason, and a ton of originality. Don’t worry, I’m cringing for myself. When I saw this book on Netgalley, I knew that I instantly had to request it and feel the cheesiness and adorableness fill my book life.And that’s surely what I got.This book was pretty adorable. I loved the whole idea of North Pole, Minne [...]

    15. Read full review HEREThis was yet another book that was part of my “I don’t have a clue how many books I’ve requested for February, but it should be fine“… SPOILER ALERT: It wasn’t! I ended up with way too many books to read this month, but I digress. This sounded cute and different, so I’m glad I got to read it.This was my first book by Julie Hammerle and I did enjoy the writing. The book is told in dual POV, on the third person.One of the biggest differences from other YA cute co [...]

    16. I was originally given a copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review and then I signed up with Chapter by Chapter to be part of this blog tour.Elena Chestnut works at her family's sporting goods store in North Pole, Minnesota. A town full of Christmas. But now Christmas is over, and her family business isn't doing so well.Right across the street is her family's enemy, The Princes. This family also owns a sporting goods store, but the family have been locked in a bitter rivalry f [...]

    17. SWOON!A winter romance with a super cute heartthrob and a game that rivals pokemon. So what's not to love?The character building is done well for the MCs. For the support cast it's not bad but they feel a bit cliche and flat in compare to the MCs. Not to say that I didn't like North Pole or it's inhabitants. The support cast, though cliche is quite alright, just in compare to the brilliantly written MCs, they feel a bit flat retrospectively. I totally adore Elena and Oliver. I could related to b [...]

    18. I want to thank Netgalley, Entangled, and the author for a chance to read this book for an HONEST review.So this is basically your normal RomCom--Modern day Romeo and Juliet set in North Pole, MNLike typical Romeo/Juliet style many moons ago there was this feud between the two families for reasons that are unknown at first. (you find out towards the end of the book) You have the Elena Chestnut (Juliet) and Oliver Prince (Romeo) who have grown up taught to hate each other but as fate would have i [...]

    19. Oh my gosh I love this book.I finished it in less then 5 hours.That is how wonderful this book is.Basically we have two families that hate each other from something that happened decades ago. So of course Elena Chestnut hates Oliver Prince just because of his name and vice versa. But when Elena's best friend Harper becomes friends with the Princes, what can she do.Then the town North Pole gets on board playing Stash Grab. You can win two free plane tickets and of course a gift card to spend at t [...]

    20. 3.5 “Snow, Pokémon Go & Mortal Enemies” StarsARC via NetGalley.Thank you, Entangled Teen.I love the concept here: a boy and a girl from two families that go way back and have hated each other for a long time fall in love without realizing who they’re falling for. It has all the key elements to make for a great forbidden romance, right?Elena Chestnut and Oliver Prince have been taught to pretty much hate each other from moment one. Their grandparents started a business together decades [...]

    21. I have been reading lots of other genres like adult romance and fantasy so I was due a break from them. When I came across this blurb, I was interested because of the mysterious messaging theme. And adding in the concept of arch enemies being involved with each other, the author had me sold on reading the book. It was time for a sweet romance and this one hit the spot!It has all the characteristics of a teen romance - little bit of angst, a touch of betrayal and cute romance between an imperfect [...]

    22. A view weeks ago I was browsing through the Netgalley database when I saw the cover of ‘Any Boy But You’. That cover really grabbed my attention. And when I read where the book was about I immediately requested it. It had been a while since I read a YA novel. And this book sounded really good. I was super excited when I was approved to read ‘Any Boy But You’, and even more when I was asked to join the blog tour.In ‘Any Boy But You’ we meet Elena Chestnut and Oliver Prince. Elena and [...]

    23. 3.5 *This review will also appear on A Leisure Moment***I received an e-ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**Elena Chestnut had hated the Princes for as long as she could remember. The animosity of the two families drove the story and created an irresistible atmosphere of competition.The small town of North Pole, Minnesota was Stars Hollow, Connecticut with more snow. It was a character itself. Craig and Dinesh reminded me of Kirk and Taylor. The game that Oliver Prin [...]

    24. Netgalley copy in exchange for an honest review. Here is a general overview of the state of my heart after reading this book (or even while reading this book): aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwww! I am a puddle of warm and sweet feelings. This was so sweet and heartwarming, I do want a big hug right now. It was not too much sweetness, though, and it tackled quite a lot of nice topics, such as sexual identity, divorce, with on the one hand seriousness and on the other hand a lot of fun and humour, too! [...]

    25. This was a light, entertaining story with believable characters. This is an accessible read that will appeal to its target audience although I did find the pacing needed attention in the middle with the story starting to drag a little.While the story is well written it is rather pedestrian. I imagine that it will appeal to teens, especially reluctant readers, looking for a light read. Thank you for the opportunity to read and review.

    26. 3.5 StarsThe Chestnuts and the Princes have been at war for years. An old family feud that has spiraled out of control even has the town divided. With both families owning sporting goods stores placed right across the street from each other, there's not a day that goes by where the feud isn't on their minds. The only difference is the Princes are making money while the Chestnuts are struggling. When a mobile app scavenger hunt whips the town into a frenzy, Elena Chestnut finds herself caught up [...]

    27. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs**Any Boy but You is the first book in the young adult contemporary romance series, called North Pole Minnesota by Julie Hammerle. I have Julie's other book, the Sound of Us sitting on my TBR pile, but after having read Any Boy But You, I need to bump it up the pile. Because Any Boy But You was super cute. I loved the concept behind it.Elena and Oliver start texting anonymously through a popular app game, but little do they know t [...]

    28. This was a cute read. I don’t really have a lot to say - I loved the Minnesota setting, I loved the “war” between the two sporting goods stores (although I’d have loved it more if it was like actual war, even a prank war) and I liked Oliver and Elena.I’m a tiny bit annoyed that there’s been a further two books in this series, but not about Harper, Elena’s best friend who’s questioning her sexuality in this book, and who id love to read a book about, but apparently the next two bo [...]

    29. Fast-paced, fun, YA novel with well-developed characters and a plot that keeps the pages turning. Julie Hammerle created a world that seemed to be out of a Hallmark Movie (which she mentions in the acknowledgments), but with more depth, wit, and all-around charm. I read this in a day while recovering from surgery and it was just what the doctor ordered.

    30. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing a digital ARC in exchange fot an honest review.This was a really cute, fun book. It's the best yet that I have read from the Entangled Teen Crush books, and it's a series I plan to keep up with because I liked this first book so much. It has sparks of You've Got Mail and Gilmore Girls to it which I love. The storyline was realistic and was more romcom like than typical romance novel like. There was no instaloveank goodness, and it had intere [...]
