    1. Reviewed by Brandilyn for Prism Book Alliance. When I first read the blurb for The Bones of You by Laura Stone, I said I had to have that book. Then I put off reading it until the last possible minute. Why? I knew it was going to break my heart. I was not wrong. This book is an emotional rollercoaster from the first page to the last.

    2. There's an emotional depth to the characters Stone treats us with in this story that has stayed with me since I read it. This is a love story that aches in it's highs and lows, with characters to root so much for and a relationship I really believed in. Stone's writing is wonderful, lovely prose I had to tear myself away from (so reluctantly!) and secondary characters that were pure win. I know I'll be reading this book again and again over the years.


    3. Seth and Oliver, the main protagonists in this book, are extremely well-written. Their personalities and their personal history are nuanced and detailed. I was fascinated to get to know these two men as the book went on, slowly revealing more and more of their character. I was fascinated by the lives these two men had lived and were living. I found myself trying to take my time to savor the story bit by bit, not to rush through until the end. That being said, this is a story that will keep you o [...]


    4. Amazing, beautiful, stunning I was sucked in from the very first moment Oliver & Seth are drawn so clearly!!! I haven't ever read a book this lovely and enjoyable, and I've read a ton of romance novels. I don't think I've ever read a romance involving two main protagonists who are so clearly individual, strong characters in their own right, undefined by the other and only by themselves, yet also inextricably and intricately linked and formed by their past. Bravo!!


    5. [NON-SPECIFIC SPOILERS]The Bones of You by Laura Stone, at face value, is about lovers reunited. Oliver and Seth are high school sweethearts who break up when their life choices take them in different directions, only to find their way back to each other after several years have passed. But that's just the surface. The bones of the story, if you will, is the complicated, sometimes agonizing process of two people facing both the wounds of their past and the choices confronting them in the present [...]


    6. Thrilled and enthralled — that describes my reaction to reading this wonderful debut novel by Laura Stone. Seth and Oliver are high school sweethearts separated by time and distance. In the five years since they were last together, Seth has gone on to become the darling of the New York stage and appeared on a national morning TV show. After seeing his appearance on TV, Oliver decides to go see Seth in his play and just watch. He isn't going to talk to Seth, just enjoy his friend's success from [...]


    7. This is the kind of book you just can't put down, but at the same time you want to read it slowly just so it won't ever end.I fell in love with the characters so hard and fast I don't quite know what to do with myself now that I'm done reading about them. This is a story about love and longing and working towards that happily ever after, but it's more than that too: it's a story about friendship and connection and about being true to your own heart to keep it whole, to be able to make others hap [...]


    8. 4.5 stars. This took practically the whole month for me to finish, because I was so distracted with class, and work and netflix and other such things, but by the time I reached the end of this I was absolutely enamored with it. The build of the relationship between the characters was frustrating at times (misunderstandings are always like that) but it was so slow and perfect and real that it warmed my heart. This is a simple story, but it was written so well that it didn't seem that way, and I l [...]


    9. I've been wanting to read this book for a while now, but for some reason I haven't been able to find time to do so. Well, until yesterday, that is. I've heard such lovely things about this book, and truth be told, I was a bit scared that I would be disappointed. ButI wasn't. I loved how fleshed out the characters were. I grew to love them as I read. Stone has this way of writing that just gets to me, and I don't know why, but it's simple, straight-forward and every single word is right. I laughe [...]



    10. Seth and Oliver have a complicated history that started with their relationship in high-school. Tolerance is low in small town Kansas and growing up gay can be down right dangerous. Both boys have challenging backgrounds and have been hurt in the past. Their young love is unable to stand the test of time, distance and immaturity.Both Seth and Oliver have perused other relationships since their separation, but the attraction of their first love remains. An unexpected second chance at love forces [...]


    11. Full disclosure: I know the author (and am so excited for her first published book), so my review is very likely not impartial. An engaging, thoughtful romance. The story sucked me in, and I became very invested in whether Oliver and Seth could ultimately make it work. The strengths of the book are: the chemistry between the protagonists (Oliver and Seth), the humor and wit throughout, and the exploration of how to make a relationship work while also balancing the individual ambitions of the two [...]


    12. LOVELY. <3 Maybe a litttttle long. But, so lovely. See my full review here!: thenovelapproachreviews


    13. This is a beautiful book. There’s no denying that. It’s a gorgeous tale of two men who get a second chance at their first love. Unfortunately for them, the timing of their reconnection is such that history is bound to repeat itself -- this time on an international scale -- if they don’t try a new approach to solving the problems that caused their split in the first place.The process is drawn out, as it must be with the two of them living busy lives on separate continents. When they do come [...]


    14. This is a nice, slow-build, second-chance-at-love novel. Oliver and Seth were childhood sweethearts who broke up when they were undergrads. Now it's six years later, Oliver is a grad student in England and Seth is an up-and-coming star on Broadway and they've got to figure out if they should try to make things work between them again. Stone does a good job at making the relationship development feel organically two steps forward, one step back, and surrounding the leads with a cast of nicely ske [...]


    15. This is an author who never met a thesaurus she didn't like. She uses the biggest words she possibly can at all times, whether or not they're appropriate, and as a result many of her sentences sound overly formal and awkward. The two leads, both young guys in their early twenties, talk like middle aged country club patrons.I tried, but I couldn't make myself sympathize with either main character. The protagonist in particular is almost unbelievably whiny and his inner monologue just isn't very i [...]


    16. This was such an adorable book! I love second-chance stories, and this was quite a page turner of a story. I loved Oliver, but I absolutely ADORED Seth, even Moira Such a snarky wit and sense of humour. I so wish I could just pop out the snark that easily*sighsThe plot went along at a slow and steady pace, but I never felt bored or any impulse to skip and hurry along. Well Just once at the end, but that was because I was so sleepy but wanted to finish before I could succumb to the temptation of [...]


    17. Identifying as queer, it can be difficult to come across romance that truly hits home in a way that has impact. Laura Stone has crafted a truly excellent novel, though, and my eyes still sting from the tears I cried toward the end. (Good ones, I assure you.) She has a way with words, so that you feel every bit of longing that the main character does. There are some lines throughout which are utterly hilarious, and others which I dare say would put a crack in even the most hardened of hearts. It' [...]


    18. I read this book feeling like I was constantly on the edge of my seat. I cried, I laughed, I smiled. I felt this book incredibly deeply. Seth and Oliver were sublime - perfect imperfection. I had questions - lots of them. I screamed at my Kindle (probably making others wonder what was going on in my hotel room in quiet Madison, WI) and I didn't understand. Fundamentally - I could not understand why the choice Oliver was making even was in question. I think that's the connection and the emotional [...]


    19. One of the things that makes a book great for me, rather than good, has always been the quality of the supporting characters – something many authors ignore, adding little tidbits but not enough to spark my interest in the people who make up the central character's world. TBoY gave me more than I could have hoped for, with beautifully crafted characters all round to pull me into the story. (And as someone who's spent a lot of time in Cambridge, yay for authors who actually do some research on [...]


    20. What a LOVELY book. *happy sigh* I’m such a sucker for these types of stories. Laura Stone’s The Bones of You ticked so many of my fave story elements boxes: it’s New Adult (with a little YA also); it’s friends-to-lovers; it’s a second chance love story; the character development and relationship histories—and not just between the two MCs—are fantastic; and the dialogue and writing style are fresh and engaging. I fell right into this story. And despite a couple of verrry minor issu [...]


    21. From my review tag on tumblr:I am aware of Stone’s writing, and I’ve read Where There’s Smoke (the scene where Wes and David think Kurt is an oblivious idiot never fails to make me laugh). I had heard of the original, but I never clicked on the link.To this day, I still have to read the original.But screw the original for now, because this is all about Oliver and Seth. Gosh, this is one of my new favourite books. I loved this so much. I loved the distance between Cambridge and New York, I [...]


    22. PHEW, this book was LOOOOONG!It was ALMOST a 2 star read for me, since I skimmed quite a few pages; the navel gazing was driving me insane.BUT Moira and Seth bumped my rating up.So Oliver and Seth were childhood sweethearts, and each others first AND big love. But Oliver screwed it up, when he sort of dropped their agreement for Oliver to join Seth in New York, and they broke up.Oliver is now studying at Cambridge and he is laser focused, but not LIVING his life. A friend sends him the video of [...]


    23. Never has a book title been more apt, in my opinion, because as I read this story, it seeped into my very bones, and left me gasping at every new revelation, teary-eyed at the palpable pain and longing both Oliver and Seth exude, and the whole time fiercely rooting for them to get back together and stay together, as they were always meant to be. I would have made other choices than Oliver, definitely. He pursued the subject he was passionate about single-mindedly, letting everything else fall to [...]


    24. I loved everything about this book, to be honest. Stones has a way of writing that isn't just telling someone the story, but making them live the story with the characters. The pacing was great, in my opinion, and how we piece by piece got to see the past between Seth and Oliver. The cause of their former breakup was logical and natural. I could understand why things had ended, and why they both had a hard time of letting the past go. The side characters where different and I loved them all from [...]


    25. I'm not really a fan of the genre, but I became a huge fan of Laura Stone. I love her writing. I love the mechanics of how she built the story and presented thinking of the characters. The minute details and the random thoughts were very real.The book read like a play and I enjoyed that.


    26. This book was a wonderful story of second chance love. I'll be honest to say, it did seem long though. That being said, Seth and Oliver are as sweet as can be and you will be pulled in for their lovely romance.


    27. 3.5 stars. I was so excited to finally get my hands on an Interlude Press book, having won a free eBook of my choice from the company's 5000 follower giveaway. I chose this one (since it was the most expensive, but shhh.)Anyone with any basic knowledge of Glee, or Kurt and Blaine's story can tell this book is heavily based off of them. The whole point of this publishing company is fanfiction authors giving permission to rework their stories into published novels. I'm starting off by saying that [...]


    28. SoI bought this last year when it came out, thinking it was original fiction written by a fanfic author I really like; I am all about talented FF authors successfully transitioning to OF—I think that's awesome. But I just came here to review and discovered that this is actually FF that she edited. SIGH. SIGH SIGH SIGH. (I've only read her TW stuff, and since this wasn't originally TW, I didn't recognize it.) And the original is even still available on AO3. She says she reworked it, so maybe it [...]
