    ***Full review on wildandwonderfulreads.com

    My favorite thing about Young Adult Contemporary books is how relatable they are! Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over is a quick, cute read that threw me back to young high school love and how shattered the smallest thing could make me feel then.

    Shani Petroff is no stranger to authoring well-loved YA Contemporaries — her lineup includes My New Crush Gave to Me and Romeo & What’s Her Name. Her writing is smooth, easy, and enjoyable. Personally,

    The basis for the book is about heartbreak and stress, but the random bits of humor and lightheartedness were what really made me like the story. It's hard to get too down when your bestie turns your evil ex into Voldemort in your phone because you don't want his name mentioned. Or when said evil ex and your mom have a text relationship with inside jokes you know nothing about. I am a huge fa



    "I felt like I really was in a horror movie, stuck on a trip that would never end.

    I buckled up, because I had no idea what I was in store for next.
    "




    I found Sari to be one of the most relatable girls that I have read in a book recently. Everything she said and did would be EXACTLY what I would do in that same scenario- regardless of how over the top or irrational it seemed at the time, even the pretending to be into someone just to get a reaction, I cheered her on. Her denials, her reactions, her relationships, her attitude- Sari and I, we would be friends.

    ​"Ok, I'm sorry, but quit pretending you're into him."

    "Who said I was pretending?"

    "I did. Because I know you still love me as much as I love you. That doesn't go away because you want it to."




    ​The cast of supporting characters in the book were so wonderful and really helped with the character development of Sari. Trina, hands down was my favorite character, besides Sari of course, ​seriously the best most loyal friend a girl can dream for. Her support was one of the reasons Sari could handle the week from Hell- a friend who would drive over an hour to save you from the most awkward car ride is a true friend indeed. And I am pretty sure my bestie has said this exact phrase in reference to me:

    "Some people went to Goodreads for recommendations, I didn't need to. I had Trina."


    And Fitz with his zen and calm was 100% needed in almost each situation he came to save. He was a good friend too, especially when Sari was not expecting one. Even her overbearing, weather obsessed mom was sweet and interesting in their relationship dynamic and wisdom.

    ​So I have been avoiding mentioning Zev, because he was the hardest part of the book, probably for both Sari and me. I wanted to hate him and never forgive him, for her to find a new guy elsewhere, but that was not this story. This story was about trust, relationship hardships, misunderstandings, and real love... and I really did end up rooting for Zev. The heart of this book is a romance, and boy did Shani nail that message home.



    ​This was a feels book, and emotions that I wasn't expecting just kept sneaking up on me. There were so many feel good talks in the book from people that really cared about Sari that I could not help but get sniffly about it. I got completely lost in the story, ended up staying up way too late so I could finish it and see what choices Sari made. It did not hurt that there was so much extra going on to keep me guessing what would happen next. ​ With this read alone, Shani has now become one of my favorite YA contemporary authors. I can't wait to read more from her and I highly recommend this adventure of love!

    ​I am voluntarily reviewing an advance, complimentary copy of this book. ...more

  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)

    I have read so many books about being stranded at an airport before, but I never seem to get sick of them. Airports, Exes, and Other Things I’m Over follows this trope, and it is just as enjoyable. The story is dramatic, and the characters are so sweet. This is a short and sweet contemporary that is the perfect pick-me-up.

  • Stacee

    I’m not sure about this rating. 3 stars might be too high.

    Sari and Zev are interesting characters. She’s driven and he’s nerdy and together their relationship seemed sweet. There are some other characters who were lovely and I wish we would have learned more about them {Fitz and Dylan, I’m looking at you}, but this story is 10000000% The Sari Show.

    Plot wise it was a sort of lackluster. The blurb says “cheating” and I was expecting sex, but Sari does walk in on a kiss and her 2 second view of tha

  • Samantha (WLABB)

    I was all heart-eyes for Petroff's last book, My New Crush Gave to Me, and was eager to read more of her work. She has a knack for creating a story that is fun, humorous, and heartwarming with just the right amount of drama to keep it interesting, and she has done so once again with Airports, Exes, and Other Things I'm Over.

    • Pro: I liked Sari a lot. I didn't necessarily always agree with her avoidance tactics, but when she listened to her heart and her conscience, she made some good choices.

    2.5 STARS

    This was 216 pages of miscommunication and frustration. No, really. That is basically the plot.

    After Sari catches her boyfriend cheating, it deals with her back and forth emotions of hurt, pain, and acceptance. I get that, and that's what I would expect from the situation. However, these emotions are really the only thing that is focused on in this story.

    There's a weird side plot about her musical career that honestly didn't add much to the story. I think it was meant to make her a lit

    I think it's more of a 3,5? Still thinking about it.

    This book was a quick, fun and fast-paced read for sure and I enjoyed following the main characters' struggles and appreciated the original setting and short time frame of only a couple days, too. I just felt a bit, frustrated because I would have loved to know the characters a little bit more, so many were interesting and had potential, but we only got to know them on the surface.

    Still, it was an entertaining read I'd recommend if you're look
