Fiction Tuesday-a little something different

They came. They read. They voted.

Swoon Reads! 14 viewpoints. One LOVE STORY.

The distinctive new crowdsourced publishing imprint Swoon Reads proudly presents its first published novel—an irresistibly sweet romance between two college students told from 14 different viewpoints.
The creative writing teacher, the delivery guy, the local Starbucks baristas, his best friend, her roommate, and the squirrel in the park all have one thing in common—they believe that Gabe and Lea should get together.

Lea and Gabe are in the same creative writing class. They get the same pop culture references, order the same Chinese food, and hang out in the same places. Unfortunately, Lea is reserved, Gabe has issues, and despite their initial mutual crush, it looks like they are never going to work things out.

But somehow even when nothing is going on, something is happening between them, and everyone can see it. You'll be rooting for Gabe and Lea too, in Sandy Hall's quirky, completely original novel A Little Something Different, chosen by readers, writes, and publishers, to be the debut titles for the new Swoon Reads imprint!

14 different viewpoints, including those from a bench and a squirrel, and guess what? I didn’t hate it at all.

A Little Something Different, probably one of the lightest, cutest books I’ve read this year, is everything that is familiar about contemporary romance, but delivered with a hint of originality. I can’t help but groan inwardly whenever I know something is told from multiple perspectives (unless it’s fantasy, of course), but you know what? Sandy Hall does a rather brilliant job-Sam

Both Lea & Gabe were likable characters, but Lea more so. Gabe was very shy, reserved and sometimes I wanted to shake him and say 'Come on man! Just talk to her! What do you have to lose?' Gabe was very frustrating in that way.-Bookable
