    1. As with nearly all of Anyta s work, I thoroughly enjoyed this 2016 re working of Lenny for your Thoughts Julian was first Lenny s cousin.Then his bully.Then his very best friend.Then his first and only crush.Then a huge piece of his world, entirely missing.Then an awkward ex friend, who he wanted nothing than to avoid, other than possibly fully lose himself to.From a childhood in the countryside to a life fully realized on the outskirts of Berlin, this story travels the full spectrum of wants, [...]

    2. This book exhausted me I overdosed on the angst and pain The first 40 percent or so had me bored to tears There are only so many scenes I can read from the perspective of a 6 or 11 or 14 year old, especially when these children are so weirdly adult in their actions and reactions Once the story hit the present, I was hoping for the pace to pick up, but there were moments in time, glimpses of a dreamy reality, and a whole lot too much of two secondary characters, Caro and Ben, dancing round each [...]

    3. A little while back, I read rock and it went straight to my favorites shelf Recently, nest made its way onto my TBR and given that I loved rock so much, I looked forward to reading this one.Like rock , nest is told in the present tense, from the POV of one character There are other plot parallels, as well, but the stories still felt distinct, to me.In nest, it is known from the beginning that Lenny and Julian are first cousins They don t come from a close knit extended family, though In fact, Ju [...]

    4. Sometimes, when I m having a tough day or just a long one, the only thing that comes to my mind is arriving my comfy and warm home, kiss my hubby and kids, pour myself a glass of wine and get lost in a book And, this time, mad and tired, I chose Nest to make my day better.Unsurprisingly, Anyta s writing worked its magic and my humor changed in an instant I started to feel better, warmed, absorbed and withdrew with the comfort you only feel in your happy place, surrounded by the people you love.T [...]

    5. The blurb doesn t really do this story justice, this is far than a love story of the romantic kind, it s a journey that a whole family takes.Lenny and Carolyn are growing up with their Oma since their parents died trying to escape to West Germany Oma is eccentric and slightly all knowing, at least that how it seems to the children in her life, which include not only Lenny and his older sister Carolyn, but also Ben, Lenny s best friend and Lenny s cousin Julien Julien is being raised by his sing [...]

    6. I ve finally figured out the words to articulate what it is about Anyta Sunday There s no question her prose is extraordinary I thoroughly enjoy reading her stories because she invokes such pleasure from me in my reading experiences.But some stories, and this was one of them, are rife with such abstractness that I don t feel satisfied I need to not only understand the one MC s POV that the story is told from, but I need to hear communication Her MCs often have these conversations with each othe [...]

    7. Me gusta mucho la forma de escribir de Anyta, es dulce, con muchas emociones y nada simplona Es extra o, su libro m s celebrado es Rocks, el que menos me gust a mi por su resoluci n.Nest en algunos momentos me ha recordado a Rocks, el mismo tipo de ambiente Lenny y Julian son primos hermanos, han crecido cerca y han pasado de enemigos a amigos y despu s a amantes Con varias secuencias a lo largo de los a os la autora nos muestra c mo va evolucionando la relaci n Esa primera parte me ha encantado [...]

    8. Ok wow, I don t how you do it Anyta, but you are a Queen to me.This was bloody beautiful and heartbreaking It was strangely similar to Rock but at the same time so different That didn t bother me at all Actually, I enjoyed the similarities because I loved Rock so much that reading something that made me remember it was the icing on the cake for me I devoured in one sitting Nest evokes so many feelings that I don t even know where to start My bird is certainly happy and awed by this story I love [...]

    9. In the past few months Anyta Sunday has become one of my favorite authors She has this unique way of narrating a story, that evokes ALL the feelings I really liked nest There are a lot of NA momemts, but the whole story definitely falls into the YA category, at least for me And although I m not a big fan of the genre, I ll read almost anything this author writes My only niggle is that I felt that Julian and Lenny could have talked a little about the past and the reasons that kept them apart, in [...]

    10. Good, BUT ugh I have serious issues with Anyta s choices for the MCs sometimes, and this is unfortunately in the same category, though Lenny, Ben and Caro saved it for me But the coward also known as Julian had me clenching my Kindle than once Holy shit a douche, and his complete inability to apologize made me ragey I loved the analogies though and I loved the surrounding characters and most of the story Lenny was a sweetheart, but I did need him to grow a pair and tell Julian to man up or eff [...]

    11. First This was a buddy read with Mandy reads obsessively.Finished, but I really had to think about it As soon as it was on I downloaded it and then started reading promptly The story kept me interested and I couldn t really stop reading.I like Anyta Sunday s voice very much, it still came through in this book, even if the way the story was told wasn t really to my liking The switch between today and the flashbacks was increasingly getting on my nerves At the beginning it had a nice flow, the le [...]

    12. 3.5 starsKissing cousins you say I was excited for this, but in the end it just didn t click so well for me I guess I had problems connecting with the story and the characters.

    13. I enjoyed this novel a lot Anyta Sunday has a charming writing style The constant flashbacks are a bit annoying, but still I highly recommend it I won t forget the characters soon.

    14. This was a disappointment.I am not sure where the author wanted to go with this It had some elements of a love story, but was quite convoluted It had too many characters and childhood memories which were probably supposed to give the story color and profundity.What didn t work for me at all the structure The back and forth in time It was confusing, tiring and not beneficial to the story flow.I also didn t dig the cousins theme They all grew up together, so it felt quite incestuous And not in a s [...]

    15. I loved this I thought it was beautiful.And it s wonderfully crafted The flashbacks are done exceptionally well and are really organic here.This is my favourite from the author, I think, or close to it Moving, sweet, and the perfect amount of tension in the writing I enjoyed this read

    16. Review posted at The Blog of Sid LoveAnyta Sunday has managed to easily charm me with her previous works Shane and Trey was the first of her books that I read and it was a fun read Then, I came across her St St Stuffed and it was even better But, while reading Lenny for your thoughts, I found myself literally spell bound.The story is set in Germany and it gives us snippets from past and present of Leonard Lenny Krause s life It begins with Lenny planning to move to Berlin and is looking for a pe [...]

    17. Very thoughtful, slow moving story set in Germany Lenny s character emerges slowly, through childhood to adult, with all the people from his small village Nick, Aunt Thomas, Pastor Dieter popping up constantly throughout his life and the flashbacks.I never felt that I fully understood why Lenny needed to move Oma to Berlin in the present He gave reasons, but they seemed vague it s so arty It s where my parents tried to escape from the East and I wanted conviction there.At the heart is the growi [...]

    18. Some parts didn t make sense for me the German setting and character names Julian felt a little too disconnected from me and I kind of wish we d seen some of his PoV but the writing is so lush that I overlooked those issues Another forbidden love story from the author of one of my favorite heartbreakers, Somehow, I m okay with the moral grey areas when it comes to her books

    19. Wow, wow, wow I ll review laterter I ve read everything written by this author.So I ve finally come back to post my review This review was first posted atin April 2014.Though I will try and write this without spoilers it may contain some, so just be warned Anyta Sunday is rapidly moving up my list of favourite authors It s like when I first read Kaje Harper or Eli Easton or Tj Klune or Eric Arvin or a million other authors I loveI get all excited at the start of the book The promise of something [...]

    20. Anyta Sunday writes books that get to me, they have a way to sneak to me, grab me without knowing how and why Lenny For Your Thoughts is such a book, too I just loved it.The book works with flashbacks I like that despite it s making me crazy because I really want to know what had happened We get simultaneously the actual action Lenny s planned move to a village much closer to Berlin and his reconnecting with his cousin Julien and the flasbacks how he and Julien became friends, how their life was [...]

    21. This M M romance does not work for me.It is not the random grammar mishap nor the occasional clumsy turn of phrase Neither is it the sole soul word play that is ingenious but constantly fails to move me.The German setting feels unnecessary not just because most of the chararacters first names sound English but also because it is meaningless for the plot which could actually take place anywhere else with little need for changes.The real problem for me is that the characters fail to come alive.Ms [...]

    22. My review of this book would be pretty much like my review of RockHad I only read one of them Now that I ve read the two I ve gotta say, they re painfully similar, sometimes down to the DETAILS, many details view spoiler incest theme check older sister check camping trips check sister friend check some kind of mask check sex after a wedding check fake bfs or gfs check hide spoiler Anyway, that s why I can t give this book 5 stars Heck, I wouldn t give it 4 if I didn t like this type of story so [...]

    23. 3.5 starsI liked this story for its cinematic feel Rather like a deliberate and carefully put together art film, it was evocative and beautiful It had a feel of magical realism to it which I really enjoyed but the many flashbacks and style made me feel a bit removed from it all I enjoyed the characters but I rarely felt emotionally connected to them Although the constant hopping from past to present left me feeling impatient I will say that I enjoyed reading the Lenny as a young boy man the most [...]

    25. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE these kind of books Dudes Its all about the love from afar, the war within ourselves, the timeless love through the ages, decades, right, wrong just UGH LOVE This was like Rock all over again and it pulled at my tender heart strings My heart is tender this year and I ve been shying away from these stories this year cause life is hard yo But I think I needed this right before Christmas to remind me that love in eternal, and withstands time view spoiler And thank you Jes [...]

    26. 3.5 stars with me thinking I might have to round up simply for Oma s last little bit I read Nest as opposed to Lenny for your thoughts and I suspect I prefer the linear nature of this version but I am curious The things I loved about Rock were not as well done here, but conversely the things I thought were weak in Rock were well done here This made me a bit frustrated for both books as I believe Ms Sunday has the talent to avoid these pitfalls.This is set in Germany and while it often felt auth [...]

    27. I really liked how this story was told I m one of those rare people who like the alternating time point of views I love all the characters Lenny, Oma, Julien, Carolyn, and Ben I love how it was in Lenny s point of view I usually don t seek out these kinds of stories but I was totally rooting for them in the end honestly really throughout the book lol I enjoyed this story and I really like this author s works Great job
