Review: Sing

Rating: 4/5

Multiplatinum pop icon Lily Ross’s biggest hits and biggest heartbreaks (because they are one and the same):

1. AGONY. (That feeling when her ex ripped her heart out of her chest and she never saw it coming.)
2. GHOSTS. (Because even famous people are ghosted by guys sometimes. And it sucks just as much.) 
3. ONCE BITTEN. (As in: twice shy. Also, she’s never dating an actor or a musician ever again.)

But this summer’s going to be different. After getting her heart shattered, Lily is taking herself out of the spotlight and heading to a small island in middle-of-nowhere Maine with her closest friends. She has three months until her fall tour starts-three months to focus on herself, her music, her new album. Anything but guys.

That is . . . until Lily meets sweet, down-to-earth local Noel Bradley, who is so different from anyone she’s ever dated. Suddenly, Lily’s “summer of me” takes an unexpected turn, and she finds herself falling deeper and harder than ever before. But Noel isn’t interested in the limelight. She loves Noel-but she loves her fans, too. And come August, she may be forced to choose.

Okay so, straight up, I actually requested a different book from the publisher, and was sent the press release for this and asked if I'd like to read this one as well, so I didn't actually discover this myself, technically. Now, I don't usually like contemporary books, my only weakness being BB lit, and this isn't exactly that but I was intrigued by the synopsis because Lily sounded like an incredibly relatable character and this sounded a little bit different to the usual. 

I was not wrong! I completely loved Lily, I felt for her so badly, we've all been in her position. Well...not exactly her position but close enough! She was such a relatable character, and for a celebrity she was fairly down to earth. She was believable. She had two fantastic friends who where brilliant secondary characters, Tess and Sammy..I mean...if you've gotta be famous may as well rope your best friends in to working with you right? I think they're a large factor in Lily remaining down to earth and her being such a likeable character, the two of them where such brilliant characters and I loved reading about the friendship between the three of them. I also liked our male character, Noel, he was adorably awkward at points, and gave you the odd chuckle. I feel like he had a very realistic reaction to everything, and he was another character you could relate to on some level. 
There where actually a lot of brilliant supporting characters besides Tess and Sammy, Ray and K2, Terry, Sidney, the other boys. They where a lot of fun to read about! 

I enjoyed the developing romance and watching things between them grow. But the ending to it was very short and sweet, I usually go for cheesy so when I saw where this was heading I was expecting to be disappointed but I actually ended up liking the ending. I think it fit the situation perfectly, and overall Sing was a funny, emotional and heartwarming read. It's the perfect book to sit with on the beach, it's short and sweet and a nice light read!
