[[ PDF / Epub ]] ☂ Perfect Tunes Author Emily Gould – Submityoursite.info A really great concept for this book but I feel like it fell short for me the character s connections really lacked in my opinion I felt like there wasn t very much dialog between characters that was meaningful and it was hard for me to feel connected to them I also think the book may need to divide up into a fewchapters, a lot of the book felt like a run on I think this book has a lot of potential though I received an ARC of this book through netgalley. I received this book free from Netgalley I found this book particularly difficult together into The characters are flat and one dimensional and the story felt like it had been done so many times before There were some grammatical errors too, which was off putting Cannot recommend this book.

Loved this smart, compelling novel full of heart I couldn t put it down. read in one night as i think a form of self inflicted punishment not good.
