Tonight the Streets Are Ours

Leila Sales

Goodreads / Amazon

From the author of This Song Will Save Your Life comes a funny and relatable book about the hazards of falling for a person you haven't met yet.
Seventeen-year-old Arden Huntley is recklessly loyal. Taking care of her loved ones is what gives Arden purpose in her life and makes her feel like she matters. But she's tired of being loyal to people who don't appreciate her—including her needy best friend and her absent mom.
Arden finds comfort in a blog she stumbles upon called "Tonight the Streets Are Ours," the musings of a young New York City writer named Peter. When Peter is dumped by the girlfriend he blogs about, Arden decides to take a road trip to see him.
During one crazy night out in NYC filled with parties, dancing, and music—the type of night when anything can happen, and nearly everything does—Arden discovers that Peter isn't exactly who she thought he was. And maybe she isn't exactly who she thought she was, either.

Note: I got this book from Goodreads First Reads.

I took the idea of writing a little log from Book Bumblings. Arigato, Book Bumblings!

Aug 19-
Started Tonight the Streets Are Ours
3- Uh. They tell you out right that this is a love story. Oh no
21- Wow. I've never met someone that nice in my life. I would take that stinking trip to Disney if I was Arden.

Aug 20-
56- Two stories entwined into one.
173- Arden's in LURVE.
186- Hm. I feel like the two stories are echoing each other. Boring, much?
210- Man. I'm happy that I'm not the only person who assumes everyone is white. (Which is hilarious since I'm ASIAN AMERICAN.) Gotta love the ole USA.
277- Can I officially say that I hate Peter?
281- Love that Hemmingway quote.
293- Don't worry, Arden dear. I've been to China multiple times, and I'm not sure what a Chinese accent is. ;)
303- Can I unofficially diagnosis Peter? I'm gonna do it anyways. With all the manipulation of information, I'm gonna say that Peter wants, maybe needs, to be in control.
321- Peter definitely is some sort of control freak. What is WRONG with him?
342- Who is the person you love? Who? Feeling disappointed. :(
