    Absolutely Amazing

    When I first read Something Like Summer, I could not pu the book down. Now we are able to see into the flip side of the story with all it captivating moments and wonderfully deep and vivid characters. This book is definately a must read.

    Conflicting :/

    I wasn't sure if I could read this one, I was still angry withTim a MONTH after finishing SLS, but I am so glad I read this side of the story. However, I am still somewhat conflicted, but SLW gave me a new perspectiveon the entirety of their world. Having completed the series, I am hoping their might be a fourth, though I've no idea who it'd be! Eric? Victor? Alison!? Maybe Samson, I'm sure he has a lot to say, no!?

    Pinch me, I must be dreaming.

    Just when I thought I couldn't possibly love Ben and Tim more than I already had, I stumble upon this! Although it wasn't quite as tearjerking for me as SLS, since I already knew how Ben and Tim's story would end, I absolutely adored being able to read one of my favorite books from a new perspective. In SLS, I found myself not liking Tim all that much, simply because I had no idea what was going through his mind. And now, I have a front-row seat to Tim's emotions and thoughts. You're spoiling us, Jay! I love you and Andreas both. Please keep writing, and also, tell your man I said hi! ~A fan

    Perfection and Closure

    Jay Bell is a genius.

    CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR SOMETHING LIKE SUMMER

    At the end of Something Like Summer, I was devestated. Jace is one of my two favorite characters in all of fiction, and his death floored me. I also didn't completely understand or trust Tim even at the end. Luckily, Something Like Winter completely remedies this. It gives a glimpse into Tim's mind that makes the ending of Something Like Summer much sweeter, and the events that occur after it in this book are extremely well-written. Please buy this book. Please.

    ADVICE

    Well, peach and pink is always a good colour for people with blue eyes. However, blues (horizon blue, midnight blue, royal blue, ext.) and light greens (like pastel) go good with blondes. Id say blues is your best bet.

    Great book

    After reading Something Like Summer I was so happy to see this next volume. To see things from "the other side" is great. You understand where Tim comes from and how he ends up where he is. Easy read! Couldn't put it down. Thanks Jay for such an awesome series!

    Just read it, already:-)

    If you enjoyed SLS, which I did, you will like this companion novel. I found that this put a lot of the pieces of the puzzle that is Tim in place. I also really enjoyed getting to actually meet Eric, Tim's very good friend from the first novel. Good book, Jay! Thank you and Keep em coming!

    Very enjoyable!

    This is the companion novel (not a sequel!) to "Something Like Winter." It has a very complex protagonist, making the plotline much more interesting. I liked it very much and recommend it highly!

    Apparently, Jay Bell is an evil author that takes joy in making his readers cry! With "Something Like Winter," he once again brilliantly succeeds. This novel did not have the same emotional impact as "Something Like Summer," but that was only because we already knew Ben's story. It was great to see the story from Tim's perspective. This is a must read companion to anyone that enjoyed "Something Like Summer!"

    Awesome book MUST READ!!!

    Not sure how to describe it so ill call it a prequel sequel parallel to something like summer because it takes place before during and after it just from tims point of view.

    An Emotional Ride

    Something Like Winter (SLW) is the perfect companion novel to Something Like Summer (SLS). SLW is the story between Tim and Ben which starts from their teenage years in high school, and transitions to their lives as adults. This companion novel is told from the viewpoint of Tim, whereas SLS is from the viewpoint of Ben. However, the novel is more than just a swap in point of view: each characters have lives both shared and apart that gives readers enough of something new in each novel. The emotions are still there, which guarantees a good time for readers.

    SLW does reach farther into the future than SLS, and gives closure to the lives of Ben and Tim. I would highly recommend readers new to Jay Bell to start with SLS, then read SLW second. I highly recommend this novel - it's more than just another "gay novel."
