    1. Small, slender Matt 105 pounds, perhaps around 5 feet tall has been unmercifully bullied for most of his school years and when Symbols begins, Matt spends his days trying to escape notice, moving throughout the school by less traveled corridors, always walking in fear Matt s frame of mind is described in heart wrenching detail his coping mechanisms, the hiding, the escaping into himself, the abject terror he feels every day in school The first time Matt spots Shane McAllister a heavily muscled 2 [...]


    2. I debated DNFing this at 35%, and now at 92% I have finally succumbed to the onslaught of cheese and sugar And all those percentages in between were skimmed I just did not connect with these guys, at all They don t talk like teenagers, or even adult human beings in this century It was just so stilted and awkward I actually entirely skipped their sex scenes because it made me so uncomfortable That s my main issue But there were a million other little things One dimensional and extreme side charac [...]


    3. A Joyfully Jay review 1 starI read hundreds of books in this genre a year and this book whoa I had so many issues with this book At just 10% I was ready to close it permanently and being that it s a relatively long book, it was an uphill climb the entire way to get through this one In the beginning of the book, the author mentions that he is a non native speaker That only confirmed what was clearly evident throughout the entire book Shane and Matt are American high school seniors and neither of [...]


    4. I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads I m still not quite sure what to make of this melodramatic high school soap opera It is a high school story with new adult aged characters and drama than I thought possible in a single book.At 18 and 19, Shane and Matt feel alternately too old for high school and too immature for their years Neither character actually felt real to me The speech in this book is oddly formal and stilted and the boys experiences push past melodram [...]


    5. Gosh, I wanted to love this book I mean, read the blurb the bullied kid who s spent his days hiding from everyone slowly falls for the gentle giant at the high school they both attend, until an act of violence threatens to tear them both apart yeah, I signed up immediately for the ARC.And for the first half or so, this book held me in its grip, as the story between Matt, the bullied kid, and Shane, the gentle giant, unfolds, as Matt begins to trust Shane, as they fall in love and forge a path to [...]



    6. Awesome premise, but the writing style just didn t fit the story or the characters It didn t work for me.For my full review, visit Birdie Bookworm.


    7. I have never read this author before so I decided to give it ago based on the premise I hardly ever read high school books because of the catty way people act I liked this one and I think based on some other reviews I may be the only one As I said the plot is what drew me in but the people kept me there I wanted to find out if they could get through everything There is trigger warning here and this book is raw and gritty It can be heartbreaking as well This is a high school based book and it was [...]


    8. 2.5 3 starsReading a new author is always a bit of a tightrope isn t it You stumble upon a book either by someone else s recommendation, an eye catching cover or a well worded blurb that grabs your attention, but you begin reading with a hope that you ll connect with the author and get sucked into their story For me, Symbols by Mario Kai Lipinski caught my attention by it s cover and blurb I m a HUGE fan of books set in high school which is why I m such an avid YA reader so I knew this one was g [...]


    9. Beautiful First of all, I have to say that I fell in love with the author s first YA romance, so I ve been waiting for another from him for quite some time Symbols is a sweet and erotic romance with all the magic I was expecting and It begins with the meeting of Matt, a timid boy who s been bullied in school, and the new kid, Shane, who s so big that everyone imagines he must be in a gang or that he eats kids like them for breakfast However, Shane actually has the biggest heart and he wants to [...]


    10. 2.5 Stars This blurb intrigued me and I really wanted to love this book It had really good bones, but the execution just didn t follow through The characters are young, still in high school and only 18 and 19 years old, yet they seemed too immature at times, especially for some of the life experiences they ve had Some of the things they said and did came off as, well, cheesy Although the characters are somewhat immature, their speech could be too formal at times Certain things that were said by [...]


    11. This is a new author to me, and I d definitely read something else by them I believe the author is German and it seemed to me that the sentence structure and flow and very specifically the dialog felt different I didn t get the feeling of authenticity that I have from other YA authors, though it isn t necessarily bad just different.Shane and Matt don t always say or do things that I d expect boys of their age to do Some of that is intentional and some might be perception but some is also pure fa [...]
