    if you like YA books about young musicians, this is a must read. It's not just about music, although that is front and center. It's also a very sweet romance, about Ruby, privileged daughter of one of the premier musical families of New York, who has just realized she doesn't have the ...

    To see full review click here. I haven?t written a lot of (full) reviews for a lot of reasons this year. I ultimately want to redo this blog. I haven?t done an overhaul in years and the site looks dated and clunky and I sort of want to rebrand. However, I did want to read Night ...

    Phew, that was such a surprise and kind of a rollercoaster? I'm not a music-themed book kind of gal usually but wanted to push myself out of the comfort zone for another Jenn Marie Thorne book. I haven't read anything by her since loving THE WRONG SIDE OF RIGHT. In any case, this was w...

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars I picked up this book because I was promised "To all the boys I've loved before"-levels of cuteness, and it did deliver, but in my opinion this lacked the charm of Lara Jean & co. I loved Ruby's struggle to find her own path outside her family and outsid...

    "Night Music" is a beautiful YA coming-of-age/romance that brings classical music front and center. Ruby Chertok is the youngest of our children born to musical parents and expected to be equally musical. Ruby desperately wants to live up to the family name, but it does not seem to be ...

    I was enraptured in this delightful novel, and although it's realistic fiction, it felt magical-- love and music bloom beautifully together. Over the course of a New York summer, Ruby tries to navigate her place in her music-oriented family, where not only is she the youngest, but does...

    I just couldn't get into this book and had to set it aside after some 70 pages. I really liked how Thorne centered the plot around music, but the story itself wasn't resonating. I get that there's supposed to be a relationship tension (platonic or romantic) between Ruby and Oscar, but ...

    I am a huge fan of Jenn Marie Thorne's books, and her latest is stunning. Our MCs Ruby and Oscar are positively swoon worthy (my favorite ships are full of heart AND humor, and these two have both in spades). And the world they inhabit - the classical music circle of New York - gives t...

    The magic of this book is how music not just a prop to connect the characters, it is a character and it has its own magic besides everything. The fact that I?m in no way musically inclined made this experience unique for me. ?It?s love.? Oscar peered at the ceiling again. ?...

    I really, really enjoyed this! It was incredibly well written and WAY more complex than I expected it to be. I thought this was just going to be a swooney summer romance, and tbh it was, but it also ended up talking a lot about privilege and racial inequality in the classic music world...

    ok I don?t know where to begin the blurb is a little wordy and that?s also reflected in the rest of the book?s writing, imo it?s not dragging per se just very informative but still enjoyable, it just took me a lot longer to get through than normally essentially ruby fee...

    3-1/2 stars Ruby learned the truth at 17: In a family of musical geniuses (world-renowned conductors, composers, instrument players), she's a talentless squib whose abilities are merely passable. Without the future she's spent her whole life anticipating, she's at a big, lost, very l...

    Actual rating: Closer to 3.5 stars Night Music is the second book that I've read from Jenn Marie Thomas, whose debut effort The Wrong Side of Right really wowed me because of the way that she deftly tackles how growing up in the spotlight of politics can be like - with all the privi...

    Rating: 4.5 Stars This wasn't quite the rom-com I expected, but it was a beautiful story about music, first love, and discovering and nurturing your passion. Oscar found himself thrust into the spotlight, when his musical talent was discovered and he was rewarded with a scholarsh...

    One of the best (and sometimes worst) quality of a good book is that they make you feel things. And, oh boy, this book made me feel angry, upset and hopeful in so many different levels. Ruby is a seventeen-year-old driven by her family's legacy to succeed in the world of classical m...

    solid 3* so...i have a lot of thoughts about this book. overall, if you want a cute, romantic YA book that has a little family drama and comments on elitism sprinkled on top - i think just about anyone would enjoy this. it was full of emotion, regret, aspiration, and romance. a ...

    This is a must-read for anyone who?s a musician or just fiercely loves music. As I?m neither of those things, I had some trouble connecting to this story. The discussions of privilege and inequality in exclusive institutions like classical music were necessary and well done, and I?...

    This novel was a huge hassle to get through, but the experience was worth it. It is amazing when music is represented vividly in a novel to the point where you can visualize it without hearing it. This definitely shined bright on diversity and the distinction between stereotypes and re...

    ?Night Music? is a wonderful coming-of-age romance that will appeal to YA readers and all those young-at-heart enough to remember the heady experience of a first love. It?s also for everyone whose heart beats a little faster when they hear music. Ruby Chertok, age 17 and the y...

    i'm really not sure how to review this because it was definitely a book that i didn't hate but i didn't extremely like. so i think i'll split my review according to those two categories. what i liked: - how the author handled the implications of race and anti-blackness in the USA...
