    This book was won through a LibraryThing giveaway.Have you ever read a book and wondered what in the fuck did I just read? Welcome to JillyBean. It's a quick read—it just took me the last 3 or so hours to read it, but I'm still confused as to what the book is about.I was excited to read this book, because it takes place near where I grew up. It's probably weird to say, but I love seeing places I know in books. Kingston! Highway 60! Campbellford! I've been to those places! Just look at the note [...]

    I wasn't sure what this novel was about from the synopsis and having read it I'm still none the wiser. To be honest, I found it a challenge to finish it. But I did! The writing isn't at all bad - although extremely descriptive and the author uses the exclamation mark too often in my view - but the story telling (???). Not much happens until a third of the way in, i.e. the seance, and I struggled to see the relevance of some of what came before that. OK, I got the significance of the part about t [...]

    I signed up to receive a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through . I really wanted to like this book, and there were definitely parts I enjoyed reading. I was really freaked out by the seance, but I love to be scared and it was one of my favorite scenes of the entire book. I never really connected with Jillian's character. She seemed to lose her common sense once she met Matt and became paranoid about whether he was in love with her or not though they hadn't been dating very l [...]

    3.5 starsTo begin, I'd like to thank the author Celia for sending me a copy of her book to read and review. When I first saw the cover for "Jilly-Bean" it put a smile on my face, there's something I really like about it, probably the hair:) The story in itself is nothing like what I would normally read and there are certain parts that are actually quite literary rather than your average young adult popular fiction. The author has a knack for describing details and different characters that is qu [...]

    A rite of passage of a teenage girlThe first thoughts of this indie published book is for the charm it holds and the dexterousness of the descriptions. The girl can write - evident in the flow of the story and definitely the descriptions of what's around Jelly-Bean, someone going through post-high school stage of life.About half way through the imagination is taken by the potential of the plot's path. It touches on being a ghost story, a murder mystery, a love story? But the women spirited away [...]

    I received this book in exchange for a review as part of a First Reads Giveaway.I enjoyed this book. It was quick, smooth, enjoyable reading. For a fictionalized portrayal of magic, I thought that the reactions of the characters were realistic and the overall stance of the novel was balanced. The setting was lovingly described. I wished that there was more - more richness for each character, more story development. I sometimes felt like Jilly Bean was doing what someone would do, rather than wha [...]

    Not my usual cup of tea. Honestly, I don't usually go for literary comedy, and I don't feel that I was the right target audience for this book. Still the character of Jilly-Bean (as her friends refer to her) was very sweet. The author does a good job of playing up her melodramatic style and teenage need to angst and dwell while managing to retain the character's naiveté. One particular scene, at what should have been a somber funeral, made me laugh as did the scenes with the psychic. The author [...]

    I read this book that was gifted to me by the author for an honest review. I liked this book when I first started reading it. I wasnt sure where the story was going but found myself liking Jilly. She seemed to have a good head on her shoulders and had a plan for her future. All that changes when she meets Matt. He is a doctor that we come to find out, is in love with himself and uncappable of commitment! Just when the book is starting to pick up, it ends. I finished going "huh what the heck just [...]

    I am a big supporter of SPA (Self Published Authors). I've read many indie or self-published books. I must say that I am very impressed with the editing on this book. I found only one typo in the entire story!The author has a very unique flare, her words are so easy to read - I can't believe I finished this book in one night. (a little sleepy-eyed)Jilly-Bean reminds me of the teenage angst that struck home with a resounding boom in so many hearts. I'm looking forward to seeing if Celia Vogel wil [...]

    First of all, I love that my hometown is mentioned in this book. I live in Kingston, Ontario home of Queens University and it was exciting to hear of the surrounding cities. That being said, this was a hard book to read. I can't usually put books down when I start reading, but this book had the opposite effect on me. The descriptive words were awesome, but the descriptions were too drawn out, I found my mind wandering during some of them. The dialogue is not very realistic. I don't know of anyon [...]

    Wow, does Celia Vogel know how to write! Jilly-Bean is an ambitious, exciting and well-plotted debut in the YA genre. Tackling such diverse subjects as teen angst and romance, the loneliness of leaving home, and even talking to the dead, this book takes some serious twists and turns and engages the reader with richly described settings (Lake Ontario was my favorite, having grown up there.) The author demonstrates prowess with word choice and the exquisitely dramatic time that is young adulthood. [...]

    Jillian has just graduated high school and is started her first summer before she is off to college. Never having a boyfriend she is entranced when she meets intern Matt Barnes all the while not realizing she is being loved by Andrew who she has known most of her life. Disjointed narrative makes this a hard read but if you like gothic romance, even though it is set in the present, then this book will appeal. Good Job

    Benjamin Jones
    I really liked this book! Going into it I expected it to be strictly about romance (which was fine with me as I love that stuff) but the book takes twists and turns dealing with the supernatural and you never really know what to expect when you turn the page, which is a good thing.I also found the author's use of detail to be very rich and added to the story. As one reviewer noted, it does end on a serious cliffhanger but I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series

    Michael Delwiche
    An intriguing coming-of-age story about a teenage girl's first painful forays into romance. An eerie séance provides dark undertones, whilst overarching concerns about climate change add resonance to the author's evocative rendering of the idyllic Canadian locations. Vivid sensory descriptions are scattered throughout the occasionally loose prose.

    Celia Vogel is a very talented writer, very eloquent and descriptive. That being said, I did find the story of Jilly Bean a trifle confusing. The subject matter seemed to vary throughout the book, and I couldn't figure out how it correlated, or which story line I was following. I do look forward to reading the rest of the series, but I hope they'll offer some more clarification.

    Caroline
    I found it confusing. Where does all the stuff in the beginning tie into the story? Why is it in the book if it is not important? I just kept waiting for it to come together and it really didn't. It was like the author had too many ideas and tried to put them all in one book. But they just don't fit together.

    Becky
    Celia Vogel has created a wonderful world in her novel, Jilly-Bean. I found the writing style both beautiful and lyrical. The story is more character than plot-driven. It's one of the better novels I've read in recent memory.

    Lucinda
    The synopsis was the best part of this book. There is puppy love, loss of said love, and a young teen not dealing with life. The story is disjointed, set in sadness and despair. I do not recommend reading "JillyBean".

    Darlene
    Never mind. Just couldn't get into it. Sorry.
