Review: Catching Jordan

Title: Catching Jordan
Author: Miranda Kenneally

Synopsis

What girl doesn’t want to be surrounded by gorgeous jocks day in and day out? Jordan Woods isn’t just surrounded by hot guys, though—she leads them as the captain and quarterback on her high school football team. They all see her as one of the guys, and that’s just fine. As long as she gets her athletic scholarship to a powerhouse university. But now there’s a new guy in town who threatens her starring position on the team…and has her suddenly wishing to be seen as more than just a teammate. 

Basically, Jordan’s a badass football player who’s always surrounded by her teammates. Sure, she speaks (vaguely) to other girls… ish? But otherwise, most of her time is spent with her best friend, Sam Henry. Everything’s going as planned for senior year, that is until a new hotty comes to town. Tyler Green was the quarterback for his team back home, and now he’s battling Jordan for the spot. Determined to keep her place, Jordan works her hardest to bring her team the win, but (and there’s always a but) she begins to fall for Tyler. Able to sort out a tactic to beat the state champions, Jordan finds herself unable to sort out her mind and heart.

I found this novel quite cute and I really connected with Jordan. Personally, I hang out more with guys, not ’cause I’m on the football team (I’m too uncoordinated for that), but because I find that they’re more chill and there’s less drama which is more my thing. Either way, I related to Jordan on a few notes, which was cool ’cause it made the story a little more realistic for me.

It’s not an intricate book, but it was fun to read, though I doubt any guys will like it… I should go and ask my male friends what books they like so I can post some review for guys too … Anyways, it’s fun, it’s pretty realistic, and it shows that sometimes, even when you’ve got your eyes set on a goal, there are other options and it’s smart to consider them. It’s a story about romance but also a high schooler’s life as she (and her teammates) tries to make decisions for universities, her own future, and as she tries to deal with her father, who doesn’t seem to support her dreams.

Quotes:
“One thing I learned a long time ago is that even if you think you’re meant to be with someone, that doesn’t necessarily mean you get to be with them.”
-Jordan’s father

“What’s the occasion?” I ask.
He glances up at me and takes a deep breath. “You’re the occasion, Woods. I’ve missed you so, so much.”
-Jordan and Henry (I’m not really sure how to address people from this books since, as with all sports, they got by last names)

    Hiya @nerdyaddictionshop ! My name is Alicia and I'm from Canada 🍁 First off, I want to say how much I love your shop! I fell in love with your work from your It's the Nerdy Life box and I've been loving your new line of watercolour bookmarks. They're so unique and beautiful 😍 I have a slight obsession with your new designs so I'd love to rep them for you and help you share your beautiful art with the world!
.
As for posting, now that I'm done with my job and am back in school, I'll be posting everyday! Throughout the fall months I want to go and explore the city I'm now calling home and I would love to take your bookmarks with me (thus the inclusion of the image staring Five Ways to Fall). It would be a weekly endeavour where I'd walk around town and capture something that I love, with a book and your bookmark (or your bookmark alone). Further, I'll be taking photos similar to the others featured here and would be willing to promote only your bookmarks during the time I'm rep. I feel like my feed matches your bookmark aesthetic. I love vibrant colours and the most I adjust my photos is using sharpening and changing lighting. With the myriad of colours you use, I think your bookmarks would pop on my feed 😄 Lastly, I'm happy to host giveaways and post about sales on my feed, as well as my blog, Twitter, and Facebook page. My Instagram feed also shows up on my blog's homepage!
.
As Taheri Mafi is expanding her Shatter Me series, I would love to see bookmarks with quotes from her series, as well as symbolic representations of each character's ability (ex. A symbol of healing for the twins, or of invisibility for Kenji). I think your watercolour art would be a beautiful backdrop for these or can be incorporated within the designs themselves. I'd love to see your take on this series (it's one of my favourites 😜)
.
Thanks again for the wonderful opportunity and good luck to everyone who has entered!

Thanks all for reading! Wish me luck friends 😄🍀

#bookstagram #books #repsearch #nafall2017reps #nerdyaddiction #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookishlove #booklover #fan Good morning and happy Friday! I will be MIA the next few days as I pack and move out to school. I'm excited to get started with my program, but I'm also worried I won't have enough time to finish packing everything before Sunday 😅 I'll be back next week! Thanks for all the love 😘 Have a good weekend!

#bookstagram #books #tbr #colours #red #orange #yellow #starwars #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #booknerd #bookishlove #booklover #fan #bookblog This is something I struggle with on a daily basis. What should I attribute value to? What should I invest my time and money in? I guess it's just the thoughts of a recent grad floating around me, but investments in the future are becoming more and more important to me and I'm at a loss. All I know is that I will always invest money and time into my book collection 😅
