    Three Amazing Things About SURVIVING ADAME MEADE1. FNL feels. Are you obsessed with Friday Night Lights like I am? Then this is the book for you. It brought me right back to the weeks I spent binge watching that show a few years back, and gave me all of the same swoony feels. Friendship! Football! Kissing!2. Claire + Adam = Sparks. I mean really -- is there anything better than two characters yelling at each other because they *actually* want to kiss each other? Claire and Adam are evenly matched in the snark department, making their banter a thing of beauty, and when they finally make it to romance, the reward is fantastic.3. Senior year challenges. I'm a fan of how author Shannon Klare incorporated the challenges that come along with senior year into her debut. College visits, applications, deciding whether to attempt long distance relationships. It all feels very real and relevant set against the small town football backdrop. I can't wait for you to meet these characters come August!

    Quick and cute read. Sometimes a new chapter would start and I’d feel like I missed something, but no, it was just a little choppy. Cute story though, and absolutely adored Adams grandma.

    3.5 stars.Finally finished, and what an unexpected turn this book took.Surviving Adam Meade is a hilarious, adorable and heartbreaking story about two teenagers, Claire Collins and Adam Meade, who fall in love despite their better judgments. I was hooked at the beginning, and although it did get a bit slow in the middle, I binged the last few chapters because oh my goodness I was not expecting that ending.I loved the characters. Claire was hilarious and super sassy, Adam was beautiful (for the most part) and also super sassy, Riley was refreshing and such a fun person to read about, but nobody made me laugh quite as much as Case, Claire's younger brother. I think I love him. I do wish these characters had a bit more depth and personality, but who knows, maybe the revised version has all that good stuff. I hated the ending, but there is a second book which I will definitely be reading (eventually) so I understand why that was probably necessary and I'm not too mad about it.The only real issue I had with this book was the constant slut-shaming. Boys calling girls skanks and girls judging other girls for the amount of times they've had sex is just not okay. Especially when nobody ever gets called out for it. Stop slut-shaming, please and thank you.Overall, this book was a super fun read and I am so glad I read it.

    I received this eARC novel from Edelweiss. This is my honest review. Release date: August 14, 2018Claire is having a rough time right now. Because her father got a new job coaching football in North Carolina, she is being forced to move her senior year from Alabama. Away from her friends, her cheerleading squad, and her boyfriend. And because she was moving away, her ex, Seth, decided to dump her because he didn't want to do long distance with her and wanted to have fun his senior year in high school. So now Claire is devastated, heart broken, and mad. It doesn't help that she is trying to grovel her way to use the car that her and her brother, Case, share, to get back to Alabama so she can see all of her friends and also, maybe, kind try to convince Seth to get back together with her. And part of that groveling is to help her father with his practices with the football team. And when the cocky quarterback, Adam Meade, decides to make her life hell, she decides to come back at him with all that she has. Because she might as well make life interesting for the next few months until she can go to Auburn - her dream college in Alabama. The more that she is stuck with Adam, though, the more she realizes that she might have feelings for him. But she has been down this road with a different football player, and she will not fall for it again! Because heartbreak is not on her agenda for the near future. Adam is persistent, though. He is used to the girls wanting everything from him, so when he encounters Claire's indifference, he wants to figure out what is so special about her and how he can get under her skin. But the more he tries to get a reaction out of her, the more he is realizing that Claire is getting under his skin as well. When Claire gets some news about her ex, she realizes that she hasn't been 100% truthful with Adam, and with their rocky relationship and their arguments about colleges, she may have ruined the best thing that has happened to her. This was a cute high school/football novel. You have teen angst, end of the world event, Friday night football, and stressing about college and the future. While I didn't go through nearly anything that Claire went through, I do remember a lot of classmates going through this exact same thing, so this book is very realistic in that way. I did, though, want to strangle Claire throughout most of the book. I get that it was like the end of the world for her for most of the novel, but she just needed to stop thinking so much and just do what she needed to do. Things work out in the end, no matter if it is heartbreak or happiness. And at age 17, she has her whole life ahead of her to make things right, even if it doesn't seem like it at the time. I thought that the football games were very realistic and I think a lot of readers who watch football can relate to it. I saw on Goodreads that there is a second book available, and it's on Wattpad right now... So basically I found it and I am now going to read it to see what happens when Claire and Adam go to college, because I am very curious about how this will play out. I'm not sure how long the link will be available on Wattpad, since Shannon Klare got signed on with a publishing company, but I'm going to put the link here if you want a chance to read it before it goes away :)Finding Claire Collins:

    Surviving Adam MeadeI LOVED IT!It wasn't at all cliché and sappy like other teen fiction romances. This book was simply wonderful. . . except for the heartbreaking ending that ripped my heart out and stomped on it repeatedly.Adam Meade was a complete jerk at the beginning, but even then I sort of liked him for not holding back and not caring what people think of him at all. It was actually an admirable trait that I wish I had myself. He did what he wanted because it made HIM happy and didn't care if other people judged him or not.Claire Collins was one of the strongest characters I've ever read about, especially when she found out Adam was using her the entire time to get a football scholarship since she was the coach's daughter. I think I cried more than she did, I'm not joking. She went to school the next day and went on with her life as if nothing had happened and held her head up high, despite the fact she was crumbling on the inside.Riley was honestly the most amazing person ever (Claire's best friend) and I think I liked her more than the actual main characters. She was funny, smart, enjoyable, enthusiastic, and was so supporting of everyone. Even when she found out Tate (her boyfriend) had known about Adam's plan the entire time, she took Claire's side and made Tate apologize repeatedly for doing this to Claire. Even though Tate and her had been dating for way longer than Claire and her had been best friends. She was so sweet and never did anything to hurt anyone else, but instead made everyone feel BETTER about themselves.I shipped Adam and Claire so hard and then Marcus sent Claire that video of Adam telling the football team his true intensions of being with her. He was using her to get a football scholarship, since her father was the coach. I was so upset and I cried, CRIED! I did not see this coming at all.I'd grown so accustomed to Adam and then I find out who he truly is. A jerk without a care in the world about other people's feelings. At all. He does things to benefit himself and doesn't care who he's hurting in the process as long as it benefits him.I think it hurt even more when Tate told Riley and Claire that this was the SECOND time Adam had done this. You think he'd learn his lesson the first time, but no, he still did it again. First with Jen, and then with Claire. How many heartbroken girls is it going to take for him to realize his actions effect other people to?I tried to stay mad at him, but when he started to explain himself, I still ended up feeling bad for him. It was something like. . ."My parents are gone, my grandma is dying and you're the only thing going right in my life right now, Claire. I wanted to tell you, but how am I supposed to explain that this whole relationship has been based off a lie? I've been selfish and I regret ever doing this to you, Claire. I was trying to just get a scholarship, but I fell in love with you in the process. I love you, Claire."Claire asked for space and Adam just couldn't handle 'space' away from her, so he fled like a coward. He graduated early since he had enough credits and left her to fend for herself. HE made the decision, so the breakup was completely his fault honestly. A girl needs space after you betray her like that and he was just too much of a coward to respect that.I also loved the pocket dictionary references!

    This exact review was copied from my blog but if you'd like to see more extras and GIFs, head on over and scroll all the way to the bottom of the post. I promise they're there. :DTitle: Surviving Adam MeadeAuthor: liveandlove10Published: WattpadEdition: 2015 WattpadMy rating: *****/***** (5/5)Let me just start by saying, I LOVE the cover. People always say, don't judge a book by it's cover, but it's just what humans do. We see something and automatically assume. In this instance, I automatically assumed this was going to be a great story and guess what? That was exactly the case.The summary of this book goes as follows: Claire had a life most girls wanted. She was pretty, popular, and peppy, until she found herself at a new high school with a guy hell bent on destroying her.With his own set of issues and a future full of expectations, Adam wanted a good season and a football scholarship, but even he couldn't resist the feisty demeanor of the new girl in school.Hormones will clash. Some will make it. Some won't.This is: Surviving Adam MeadeDoesn't that sound SO GREAT?! My thoughts exactly!I loved how the characters developed and how the story emerged like a butterfly. It's probably one of the best things I've read this year! Claire is BEYOND funny (some of my favorite lines being:"'Meh.' I tried to come up with some witty remark, but somehow only managed to say, 'Orange is the color of pumpkins and pumpkins remind me of Charlie Brown.'""'I have a nagging feeling that I'm going to run you over if you don't let go.' I added a smile for good measure and a, 'Please and thank you.' Neither of which Adam seemed to find any solace in.""'And I don't give a damn what it has to do with. Touch her again and you'll be eating out of a straw.'My hero!Just kidding, it was only Adam.")And Adam is equally as funny (but there are far too many hilarious quotes from Adam to choose so I'll just let you read it and enjoy for yourself.) I feel like all of the characters had a big purpose in the story whether they were minor characters or not, which I love in a story.As a bonus, it isn't love at first sight. You always read those books (some of which are my favorites, but I'm just pointing out flaws) where the female character is head over heels for the male character as soon as the chapter begins. This, however, was a different story (literally :P). Both of the characters hate each other beyond compare (which makes for extremely funny dialogue in my opinion) but it makes the story seem even more real.Speaking of being real, this story hit that mark. The characters, the plot, the setting, and everything were just so real that it was hard not to keep reading. It deals with a whole bunch of stuff including, but not limited to, high school, drama, relationships, teenagers, college, and surviving. (I just had to put that last one in there- it was too good an opportunity to miss. :P)I don't think I have anything left to say for the non-spoiler portion of this review, so if you haven't read Surviving Adam Meade, go read it and come back so we can discuss further. :)If you're still here, it means you've either read it (to that I say, congratulations! Wasn't it great!) or you've ignored my warnings for spoilers (and to that, I say, it's your own fault and this is your last warning. This next sentence will be pretty spoilery...)I want to cry. Like, I wanted to cry so bad after reading that last chapter. Thankfully, I held it in because I was in a public setting but still. The feels were real.I hated Adam and then I liked Adam and then I hated Adam and then I hated Marcus and then I liked Marcus and then I hated Marcus. It's this ongoing battle with my feelings and it's really hurting my heart. Shame on you and bravo at the same time, Shannon.I still don't really know how I feel after reading the end of it, but I guess we'll have to see after I read the sequel. (YES, THERE'S A SEQUEL. IT'S OKAY- I SCREAMED TOO!)Okay, now let's backtrack, there were so many times when I absolutely hated Adam but I knew deep down that Claire couldn't stand to not be around him. There was clearly affection there and there's no denying it.Backtracking a little more, every time we got to learn about Adam a little more, my heart literally ached. There was a literal quiver in my heart. His sister and dad, his mom, his grandma, his past girlfriends. All of them made my heart ache in different ways but it still ached all the same.Now on a lighter note, I loved all the characters and thought they were extremely funny (if I ever got to meet Shannon in real life, I bet she'd be the most hilarious person ever of this is what she writes about! :D). Case, Riley, Tate, Wanda, Eva, and Claire being some of my favorites.The last thing I want to say before I end this review doesn't really have much to do with the story but kind of.So, do you know that part when Wanda invites Claire over for cobbler (I looked constantly but couldn't find the chapter. If someone knows, please comment below and I'll edit this) and then a few paragraphs? Chapters? I forget. Anyway, Claire says the line "Ooo...cobbler" which is pretty funny. What makes it even funnier is that while I was reading, I was hanging out with my aunt and she looked over to see what I was doing. Upon reading that line, she said it aloud in the funniest way I can ever think of so it's become an inside joke of ours.To make it even funnier, there was another line where Claire says "Ooo...cake" so when my aunt says "Ooo...cobbler" I reply by saying "Ooo...cake". So, there you go, Shannon. Your writing has achieved at making multiple inside jokes. :DThis is where it all ends. If you liked this review, go follow Shannon on Wattpad and like all of the chapters of Surviving Adam Meade to get her book even higher up on the rankings.

    I read an early version of this on Swoon Reads. It made me so emotional, haha. It was great. I had a few small qualms that made it 4 stars as opposed to 5, but I'm guessing it will be a 5-star read when it's done. I'm excited to read a finished copy next summer, because I want to be able to talk to other people about this book, hahaha.(PS: The "dates read" are estimated. I can't remember the exact dates for sure.)

    I loved this book! Great banter between the main characters that sometimes had me laughing out loud. Claire and Adam were so cute together and the storyline was very engaging. Few grammatical errors. One of the best books on Wattpad and I highly recommend it. There is a sequel called Finding Claire Collins which ties up the plot threads from this book very nicely and is also a delight to read.

    This was an amazing book. I love it. I read this on WattPad sometime around March of 2016, and I've just re-read it again. I'm reading the sequel, Finding Claire Collins, and I'm currently on Chapter 26, and I can't wait for the author to update the story. ^^The way that Shannon Klare portrays Claire's character is just amazing. Even though Adam's character is similar to most of the male protagonists in stories, I think that it was different - in a good way - from the rest. A story full of laughter, sarcasm, affection, and sometimes even annoyance at some characters, this was an amazing story to read, that I'll definitely read again and again.

    I'm going to give it a 5 star rating because it's by far, the best book I've read on wattpad. It's phenomenal, and the five stars are for Claire, because she is as awesome as they come.
