    1. You can also read my review HERE."Maybe that's all we're supposed to do after we've taken a spill: brush ourselves off, get back on our feet. No fuss. No blame. Just soldier on."A GUYSSS.Warm fuzzies all over. Justina Chen is a foreign author to me and honestly, after reading A Blind Spot for Boys, I don't understand why I haven't read any other of her works yet! When I finished the novel, I felt rejuvenated. I was transported to Machu Picchu without even moving a foot. That's how vivid Justina [...]

    2. ate up my review--or at least the three paragraphs I had of my review--for this book just minutes ago. If you're a busy college student whose calculus professor has just informed you that twelve hours of math homework a week is the averagewell, let's just say you can understand my frustration. But, I digress. Back to A Blind Spot for Boys. Chen's North of Beautiful utterly charmed when I first read it a few years ago and has continued to do so upon every re-read. Yet, for reasons unknown, I have [...]

    3. Photography, travel, family, romance, adventure, life. I adored that all these favourite themes of mine were a part of the book but more than that I highly enjoyed the story itself. A Blind Spot For Boys was a great read!

    4. This is one emotional hike for me. DISCLAIMER #1: My dad was diagnosed with MILD GLAUCOMA just a month ago. He was told that he's lucky that the doctors diagnosed it early because it could lead to permanent blindness. My dad's a pastry chef. He doesn't only need his hands, he needs his eyes, so you can just imagine the terror that his condition brought to the family. Thankfully, it was quickly remedied. Why am I saying this? I'm saying it as a disclaimer so that you guys won't be surprised with [...]

    5. My Thoughts: I was so excited to read this one! I loved the summary and I loved the cover! I anxiously have been awaiting it!I’ve read a few not so good reviews about this one but I didn’t let that influence me. I still really loved it! We are introduced to Shana and her family. She has a few siblings but they are away most of the time but she also lives with her mother and father. Her father is starting to go blind and they say he will be completely blind within 6 months. Talk about a hards [...]

    6. I will admit to getting a little teary eyed. Whenever I read a novel with a medical condition I get paranoid that that's what's happening to me. Oh joy. Pretty sure I'm not actually going blind, but that doesn't mean that I don't get worried. This was the third Justina Chen book that I've ever read, and I dove into it excitedly. Ah. Now I want to go to Machu Picchu. PRETTY DANG CERTAIN THAT TERRA AND JACOB (North of Beautiful) MADE A CAMEO! *squees* Not by name or anything, obv, but unnamed in a [...]

    7. As you all are well aware of, I am a sucker for contemporary YA, I love it and will always gravitate towards it when I am in a slump. So when I got the chance to review Blind Spot for Boys I was so excited because I was in need of a fun, flirty beach read. But sadly that is not what I got.Let's start with the positive shall we? I loved the setting of this book. It is set in Machu Pichu which was amazing and I loved reading about the country and what it was like to hike and discovery the scenery [...]

    8. **Originally posted on Bookish Wanderlove**Opening Lines"If you want to see the world with fresh eyes, haul yourself off to the Gum Wall in Pike Place Market. At least that's what Dad said twelve years ago when he brought me to the brick wall studded with spat-out, stretched-thin, and air-hardened wads of gum. Thousands of pieces. Hundreds of thousands."The GoodA Blind Spot for Boys first caught my eye about a month ago when Shane @ Itching for Books had it as her WoW pick. I instantly added it [...]

    9. My first book of the year; "A blind Spot For boys"-Justina ChenI enjoyed most of this book, but there were a few parts that i found a little boring or not as intriguing. About a month ago when I checked this book out, i remember it being a very long process (reading wise)-Even though there are a lot of visual, it wasn't very clear and it loss my interest and meaning. On the other hand, i enjoy the characters that were betrayed in the book, for ex. the main character, Shana Wilde, she's a photogr [...]

    10. OMG! OMG! OMG!I WON, I WON, I WON, I WON!!!I'M FREAKING OUT NOW!AFTER READING:Actual rating 3.5 stars. I enjoyed most of this book, but there were a few parts that I found a little boring. I also for some reason did not like Grace's character that much. Everyone in the book loved her, but I would have been uncomfortable around her. Also, her reveal about her leg was just weirdly done. I think that Shana and Quattro were cute together. I also liked Quattros reason for going on the Machu Pichu exp [...]

    11. 3.5 - 4 Crazy Stars!This was great read. I laughed and cried. I just love how moving this book is. I'm usually not one for YA but I enjoyed reading this.

    12. Two-second recap:In A Blind Spot for Boys, critically-acclaimed YA author Justina Chen introduces us to Shana, a teenaged girl who is forced to learn how to cope when her father reveals that he's losing his sight. As Shana and her family work to help her father come to terms with his diagnosis, she also learns what it means to find beauty and hope, in the most unlikely of places. ***Intro:I've loved Justina Chen since the release of Nothing but the Truth [and a few white lies] (seven years ago!) [...]

    13. Justina Chen paints depth and insight into every scene and every character in "A Blind Spot for Boys." She shows us a world many of us are blind to see, and she does it skillfully through the lens of her heroine's camera. In her characters we see kindness, moxie, and the virtue of finding value in everyone around us. The chemistry between Quatro and Shana sizzles, and their story is engaging and well executed. For me, Justina Chen could have deleted the entire thread of Shana's fashion blog and [...]

    14. Overall an engaging read. Shana was definitely a vivid, likable protagonista and Quattro a very worthy love interest. Grace and Stesha were inspiring. The "blind spot" motif was creatively interpreted in various ways, keeping it fresh but consistent.

    15. Ugh. I am so totally and unequivocally disappointed by this. It was cliche and terrible and used far, faaaaaaaaar too many exclamation points. The characters felt tired, like they were put together just so one could say this book had "quirky characters." They lacked real meaning, and real individuality, there wasn't a single one that I hadn't read before. There was some kind of weird insta-love type feelings, even if they weren't acted upon necessarily… Compared to (my memory of) North of Beau [...]

    16. This story centers around Shana, who is a junior in high school. She has given up boys for the time being after a break-up that strained her relationship with one of her brothers. She does meet a boy, Quattro, by accident, but vows to just be friends with him. (He just so happens to be on a break from girls!) In the meantime, her father is given a devastating diagnosis. Her dad has about six months left until he will be completely blind. Her parents have put off some important adventures due to [...]

Join us for the Blog Tour, eARC Review, Excerpt & #Giveaway: Blind Spot For Boys by Justina ChenMy Rating: 4.5 out of 5 StarsThe main reason why I wanted to read Blind Spot for Boys was because Justina Chen set part of it in a place that's on my bucket list: Machu Picchu.Troubled rich kid meets troubled poor kid and a love interest blossoms.

    19. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs** A Blind Spot for Boys is so much more than just a cute young adult contemporary romance. It is about finding yourself, and experiencing new things, and family, and relationships and really so much more. There is also a really cute romance. :p I felt like I was discovering the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu right along with all of the hikers in the story. The beauty in Justina Chen's book is the writing. It was elegant and detaile [...]

    20. Justina Chen is the author of one of my favorite young adult books EVER, North of Beautiful, so when I noticed a new book from Chen on my library’s shelves, I grabbed it right away. While I liked this book, I am thinking that my tastes may have changed in the past six years because while the two books have a lot of similar themes, I didn’t come close to loving Blind Spot for Boys like I loved North of Beautiful.What did work for me in this book was the setting. I loved reading about the char [...]

    21. Okay, by the cover for "A Blind Spot for Boys," you may be saying, oh, this is just another YA romance. It might be cute but there isn't going to really be anything special about it. And if you are thinking that, let me assure you that while this is a YA romance, but there is a lot special about this book and I ate it up! This book has a lot of heart, a great romance, and a fantastic setting. If you're looking for a YA romance that has a lot more than just a love story, this might just be for yo [...]

    22. I remember loving Justina Chen's North of Beautiful when I read it a few years ago so I was pretty excited to get my hands on her newer novel. I read it in a day. I liked it. It was interesting and I was invested. I just didn't LOVE it. I've been having this problem as of late. I like a book, but I don't get invested in it. This is a book I was more invested it, but it wasn't that amazing. It's getting frustrating! Anyways, back to the book at hand!Shana is a photographer who focuses on street f [...]

    23. Justina Chen creates complex characters that do interesting things and have interesting hobbies. Don't be put off by the cover, which seems to show a couple mugging in a silly fashion. This book is so much more than the cover. While yes, the book is a romance, and the boy and girl in question end up together, what is fun about the title is how they arrive at their destinations. Shana Wilde has declared a moratorium on romance ever since her failed relationship with Dom, an older guy. Since then, [...]

    24. Blind Spot for Boys by Justina Chen is a book about a heartbreaker, Shana, who meets Quattro, possibly one of the most intriguing guys she's ever met, not long after she swears off dating. Shana and her dad share the hobby of photography, until her dad gets a life-changing diagnostic. In an effort to make up for lost time, they decide to travel to Maccu Pichu, coincidentally at the same time as Quattro. Together, the two of them learn more about each other more than they ever could back at home, [...]

    25. *disclaimer sophomore year review skills*This book was super awesome and follows this girl named Shana who is recovering from a breakup with her boyfriend swears off falling for the wrong boys. She meets this boy named Quattro and he helps  her find herself.*SPOILERS AHEAD*OK at the beginning the book was so annoying. The main character was so annoying like her ex boyfriend was 7 YEARS OLDER THAN HER. She keeps insisting that she was in love with him even though they only dated for 6 WEEKS. Ugh [...]

    26. 4.5 stars!I've never read a book written by Justina Chen before. Now that I have, I wonder how it is I only discovered her after she's written six books. In a way I'm sort of glad it's happened this way. That means while I wait for her next novel, there is plenty to read to catch up with everything I've missed.I knew from reading the blurb A Blind Spot For Boys was going to be interesting. I had no idea how much I was going to enjoy reading it and love the story and characters. I expected more s [...]

    27. I would personally rate Justina Chen’s novel, “A Blind Spot for Boys”, a seven out of ten. The complete novel was an easy read and had an entertaining story. Although, in my opinion the brevity of certain details did not help establish the point as clear is it could have the point was still made. Chen could have gone a little further on the development of Shana, the main character, and Quatro’s life while they are both in their hometown. The two just seemed to have an instant connection [...]

    28. I have to say that I found it hard to get into this book in the beginning. Grace didn't make the best of impressions to begin with. She was rude to Quattro, which I didn't appreciate.It was a sad moment for all involved when Grace's father was given his diagnosis, however I can't help but be thankful for it since it's where the story picked up pace. From there on out, everything flowed nicely. The author did a wonderful job in describing every aspect of the trip. I loved experiencing the trek th [...]

    29. A BLIND SPOT FOR BOYS is a gorgeously written coming home story. I cherish a book that can make me both laugh and cry. A BLIND SPOT FOR BOYS did just that in page after page. Shana, still reeling from a caustic breakup with college boy, Dom, uses her arsenal of pest control techniques to keep perspective boyfriends away. I loved the humorous anecdotes with Shana’s smart boy repellent quips, but beneath it all, Shana hides a damaged heart. Shana’s unsure if she can trust herself around boys a [...]
