After Tuesday Reviews

“What really hit me in this story was the fathers addiction and the impact it had on Ruby. I come from a similar home, so when an author so delicately yet accurately hits the nail on the head and describes the dynamics of an addict type home, I cant help but cry with  joy and pain.”

~ Zee Book Truth

“I felt like I was 17 again, and it was so wonderful to regain that “First Love” feeling back again. Sometimes as we get older we forget that some of the simplest signs of affection really are the most important. Often the smallest gestures really mean the most. Well, Renee brings us all of that and more with Ruby and Brent.”

~Panda Amanda, Drunken Pervy Creepers

“Renee Ericson is simply astonishing in her storytelling. I wasn’t ready for the story of Ruby & Brent to come to a close.”

~Amy, Turn The Page

“I liked her baffled and often self-effacing thoughts as she tried to wrap her mind around Brent’s pursuing her, and as they spent more time together it was easy to feel them falling for each other.”

~Erin, The Autumn Review

“I liked this book for a lot of reasons. One big reason is that her dad, although sick, wasn’t a complete jerk. He seemed like he wanted to be a good dad and that’s something rarely seen in YA books.”

~Confessions of a Bookaholic

“I will admit that sometimes I have a hard time with teenage “love”.  We all know that they are capable of it, but they don’t know the enormity of it all.  I didn’t have a hard time with this love story.  It was realistic.  It was heart warming and heart breaking.  It was raw and open.  And the best, it took place over a more realistic time-frame.”

~Up All Night Book Addict

“After Tuesday deals with a very serious side too, I felt so bad for Ruby, I teared up with what she was going through. Me crying and tearing up in a book means I feel something and when I feel something it’s an awesome read! Renee Ericson made me feel emotions that I don’t tap into very often. This book is a story of self discovery and young love, I recommend everyone read it.”

~Book Addict Mumma

After Tuesday is written with so much heart, so much love of the characters and the story.  I could feel that as I read, and when that’s the case, it’s almost impossible for it not to impact the reader positively. When an author loves what she or he writes, it seeps into the story and into the reader, and, usually, hopefully, they get that love back tenfold.  That is most definitely the case for me with After Tuesday!!”

~Liz, Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews

“An author must fill the story with heart—making the story somehow connect to the reader if not by a personal connection then by an emotional connection. Renee Ericson does this in After Tuesday. You never left wanting from this book.”

~Flirty and Dirty Book Blog

“My heart hurts for Ruby as she struggles with having to face the reality of dealing with addiction and a tragedy opens the eyes of those she loves. It is a topic that not many discuss and it was written so beautifully with depth and compassion for all those affected.”

~Two Crazy Girls with a Passion for Books

“Although the romance is sweet and I loved Ruby’s friend, Lexi, this story goes much deeper than a simple YA romance. Your heart will soar with the romance and break with Ruby’s family life, and the author does an excellent job balancing the two emotions.”

~Mom in Love with Fiction

“Right off the bat, you connect with the characters. You go back to the days of high school when you were absolutely giddy over boys and giggled ridiculously about them. But then the book progresses and your heart hurts for Ruby. You want to be happy with her and for her, but your heart just hurts for what she is enduring at home.”

~Novel Seduction

“it’s a really good story about a girl learning to trust herself and the people that are a positive influence in her life. I really enjoyed reading After Tuesday and seeing how Ruby’s character evolved and came to resolve her feelings with the situations that she was faced with.”

~Bex ‘n’ Books

“After Tuesday was a great YA novel touching on many sensitive but realistic topics. There is of course an epic romance that rocks Ruby’s world but gives her a solid reality to focus on when the world around her keeps spinning out of control. I loved Ruby and thought she was a great character.”

~Peace Love Books

“Renee Ericson has done an amazing job with this story.  It is an emotional journey, but one worth taking.  I fell in love with Ruby and Brent and cannot wait to see what the future holds for them in the next book.  Job well done by Ms. Ericson. “
