This review can be found at ReadingAfterMidnight.comRATING: 3.5-4 stars I don't really have this edition but since I read all books together (in 1 day and a bit I must add), my review got all mixed-up and maybe this is the place to post it. 1. FIRST BOOK When I started reading this series I didn't know the 2nd and 3rd were continuing the story form the 1st book (I just assumed this after reading PC series). So I was just enjoying this sweet love story, with lots of funny moments and at the end of the first book everything felt so.. complete. I love this kind of stories with the main characters so different, playing cat-and-dog and falling in-love so hard.. I liked Amy, I loved Avi, and they were so sweet together - I was delighted to read about them and see their relation grow. As I finished the first book I was happy. The chemistry in the first book was great, the story was so entertaining and the characters felt real.. their love was so real. If you ask me I wouldn't want to read more about them, because the long-distance-relationships are always so complicated..2. SECOND BOOKBut even when I found out that the 2nd book was about them again, I just couldn't stop myself reading more. It's addictive.. the story I mean. So I kept reading.What I liked?Well, the last 50 pages or so when we get this Avi-Amy moments (finaly), and after a while we are enjoying a funny "commando-operation" with heart-melting results. I won't spoil it for you but if you like romantic and funny moments, well this is the one for you (so much fun, and Avi is such a romantic guy.. you definitely must love him).What I didn't like?Oh, the rest of it. Don't get me wrong, it's nice and all but I really never cared about Amy's dog-problems, and friend-problems and her dad gets so annoying from here on, and the dating-service is just there to fill in the blanks, and the religion stuff it's just not my thing (and I know it must be important for some, but not for me).. I was bored by all that. I just kept reading hoping to find something about the two of them together, and only for that part it was worth all the while. Now I got really curious about the 3rd book :)3. THIRD BOOKI was so enthusiastic to read some more about the characters, and now I knew this book was going to be all about Amy and Avi together at the boot-camp, and I "knew" it was going to be fun.. and it was - mostly.There were definitely a lot of funny moments, and the side characters have their presence noticed more in here, but as I got to see the problems between Amy and Avi grow, and the way they handled them (not!), I couldn't stop wondering if there is love between them or just (how do you call it?) lust?You see, after the first book I felt the two of them were in-love, two souls from across the world have found and felt for each other. It was this simple. But after the next 2 books it was just "we like each other so much, and the kissing is so great, we must be soul mates". What?? Am I the only one to get that feeling?If there is going to be another book in the series (and as far as I know it won't) then all this might make sense (or not), but if that is really the ending of the story.. then I want my ending back from the first book (that was a good ending in so many ways). But this one was rushed and the reader doesn't get that strong feeling that the two of them are gonna make it finally, that the two of them are meant to be together - if you know what I mean.That's way I hate series, because there is this great book in the beginning that doesn't need any sequel (and you know it), and you keep reading and reading, even if you don't enjoy it that much anymore.CONCLUSIONDid I like this series? -> Yes I did.Would I recommend this series? -> Yes I would.Book of choice? -> First book - How to Ruin a Summer Vacation ( )

I really enjoyed reading this series. Though it took me a while to get through it, all the books were great. I loved reading about Amy and learning about her life.
In the first book, How to Ruin a Summer Vacation, Amy is dragged to Israel with her non-existent father and there she began to find herself. I loved Amy not discovering who she is but finding her place in this world. All the time she felt lost and insecure. She is one heck of a feisty person. I loved her nicknames for the people for names she couldn't pronounce (O'snot she called Snotty! HA) around her. She always made me snicker with her sarcastic and being straight up. I loved that she spoke her mind and didn't let anyone tell her what to do. She finds love and friendship in an expectant place.

In the next book, How to Ruin My Teenage Life, Amy is separated from the one that she loves and find another. Love triangles...you got to love them! Amy comes upon some unexpected surprises in her life as well as her mothers. Amy is once again lost, but is sure to find herself in the line. The plot line of this book is full of drama, but very entertaining. Amy is still a feisty girl and needs to decide one and for all who she will choose.

In the last book, How to Ruin Your Boyfriend's Reputation, Amy is found once again in Israel proving to not only her father, herself, and her friends. Amy has made some mistakes and wants to show she can be Jewish. Amy has a better relationship now with her family in Israel as well as her mother and father. You can really tell how much Amy has grown up in this book. There are again, problems in the relationship and some heart aches. Amy gets stronger in her psychical self as well as emotional. She is finally coming into her own and learning who she is. I love you Amy!

Overall, this is great read about love, life and relationship. We all struggle with who we are and who we want to be. But in the end, it what makes us happy that we see that we are content with where we are at. A great read and great story that I can dive in over and over again! ( )
