The Compulsive Reader: Wild Roses by Deb Caletti

Discover what to read next. Entertaining without being shallow, this will have strong appeal as an outrageous family story.


This book is full of a romantic relationship between Ian Waters and Cassi. This place Maybe love too is beautiful because it has a wildness that cannot be tamed. She falls in love with this guy that her step-dad is teaching to play violin. I relate to this on a personal level because I married a very talented musician after making a promise to myself a long time ago that I would never get involved with musicians! But this union will have consequences she could not have imagined.

And it’s in every book.

Wild Roses

Okay, maybe if you’re going for the whole love at first sight angle it makes sense. Dino hates Tiero calettii much that he bought the ugliest dog he could find and named it William. The Olympian — The Bookmonger: And it’s like, what?!

So very, very terrible. The boys are all pretty bland and not much if any conversation seems to take place between boy and girl before the making out and love pledging. It was just kind of disappointing. In fact, claetti would have been caldtti without any romantic aspects at all. Preview — Wild Roses by Deb Caletti.

I found Cassi to be a very good narrator. I can tolerate a lot of books that could irritate a lot of people, but this is just too much.


widl Wild Roses is an engrossing book and I like that it made me think about my own relationship with a musician and how we all need music in our lives. Ummm hell to the yeah he did!

I’m sorry, I just couldn’t take it anymore In the end, readers will empathize with each trapped character, even Dino himself. As a matter of fact, Dino is like a b0mb about to detonate.

I loved this book for its humor, good writing and snarky character. The book opened very good, the premise was very good, and even the Dino storyline was rather good.

No swoon, no actual love, nothing.

Or, it can let you alone because you have built a stone wall against it I was very disappointed by this. Its just so deep, it is way too descriptive without providing insightful information about Cassie.
