Blog Tour: Say You'll Remember Me by Katie McGarry (Review & Giveaway!)

From critically acclaimed author Katie McGarry, comes Say You'll Remember Me—a story of two people from different worlds pushing themselves, and each other, to get what they deserve!

Today, I'm super excited to be part of the blog tour for Katie McGarry's Say You'll Remember Me. Katie has been one of my favorite YA authors for years so it was no huge surprise that I loved Say You'll Remember Me. Find my review, select teasers, and a giveaway below! 

Synopsis/Cover Image from Publisher's Website:
"Doesn’t matter who did it. Not anymore. I did the time. It’s over.”

When Drix was convicted of a crime—one he didn’t commit—he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the Second Chance Program, the governor’s newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society. Drix knows this is his chance to get his life back on track, even if it means being paraded in front of reporters for a while.

Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor’s daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn’t may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.

When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle’s parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix’s messy life.

But sometimes love can breach all barriers.

Fighting against a society that can’t imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves—Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence—and each other to finally get what they deserve.


As soon as Katie McGarry's Say You'll Remember Me appeared on my iPad, I threw my other books to the side, put my phone on silent, and dove right in. Over the course of one day I devoured the entire book from start to finish. I honestly don't think I put my iPad down once, that's how dedicated I was to the story. 

Say You'll Remember Me is enthralling, emotionally driven, and romantic, and I completely loved every single second of it! 

Drix and Elle are without a doubt my favorite part of Say You'll Remember Me. Both are incredibly realistic, lovable, and relatable. 

Drix is tough on the surface but a sweetheart deep down. His relationship with his family warmed my heart, and while I couldn't believe he took the fall for something he didn't even do, I gave him major props for doing so. It takes a certain kind of person to put themselves in that position to save a friend/family member. Throughout the book he faces numerous challenges - moving on from his past, not falling back into his old vices, learning how to trust, etc. He has his ups and downs regarding each; however, no matter how tough the times got I didn't once stop rooting for him. I just wanted the best for Drix. I wanted him to be happy and to let love into his life. 

I'll admit that I was slightly worried about Elle at first. I was scared she would be the typical spoiled rich girl, but as it turns out, my worrying was for nothing. Elle is secret rebel, in my opinion. Over the course of the book, she does a lot of the "wrong" things, and by wrong I mean 100% right. I loved how she would do anything to save a stray animal (the scene with the dog in the hotel was one of my favorites!); however, what I loved the most was how willing she was to take a chance on someone. Over the course of the book, she's constantly told to stay away from Drix, that he isn't the type of boy she should be with; however, Elle won't listen. She won't let her life be controlled in that way. I admired her fearlessness in that regard, especially since I think Drix inspired her to be a better person and vice versa. Her relationship with her parents was incredibly complicated, and to be completely honest, sometimes I truly despised them. Some of their actions blew my mind. While part of me wanted nothing more than for Elle to leave them in the dust, I could understand her reluctance to do so, and I thought Katie did a wonderful job of weaving that into the novel. 

Just like Katie's past books the romance in Say You'll Remember Me is hot, hot, hot. So much steam. So much banter. So much chemistry. I was on romance book cloud nine. I won't go too much into Drix and Elle's relationship, but I will say Katie did such a fantastic job of developing it. It felt natural and real. I enjoyed the friends-to-lovers angle. 

In all, Say You'll Remember Me is yet another unforgettable contemporary from Katie. It had such a movie/do-or-die feel, and I just know fans of angsty YA are going to ADORE it. 

Last but not least: it may only be January, but this book has already earned a spot on my Best of 2018 list. 

5 stars!!
