Today Tonight Tomorrow
The Hating Game meets Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by way of Morgan Matson in this unforgettable romantic comedy about two rival overachievers whose relationship completely transforms over the course of twenty-four hours.Today, she hates him. It’s the last day of senior year. Rowan Roth and Neil McNair have been bitter rivals for all of high school, clashing on test scores, student council elections, and even gym class pull-up contests. While Rowan, who secretly wants to write romance novels, is anxious about the future, she’d love to beat her infuriating nemesis one last time. Tonight, she puts up with him. When Neil is named valedictorian, Rowan has only one chance at victory: Howl, a senior class game that takes them all over Seattle, a farewell tour of the city she loves. But after learning a group of seniors is out to get them, she and Neil reluctantly decide to team up until they’re the last players left—and then they’ll destroy each other. As Rowan spends more time with Neil, she realizes he’s much more than the awkward linguistics nerd she’s sparred with for the past four years. And, perhaps, this boy she claims to despise might actually be the boy of her dreams. Tomorrow…maybe she’s already fallen for him.

    Y'all, I have been anticipating this book since it was originally pitched as a "YA mix of the Hating Game + Dazed and Confused" and I am SO HAPPY TO SAY that this was exactly what I was hoping it would be and honestly just an all-around perfect YA contemporary for me. I laughed, I teared up, I SWOONED. It has my favorite trope (enemies to lovers) set in one of my favorite cities (Seattle) and it was just so perfect in every way.

He's both infuriating and awkward, and he has red hair and many, many freckles.• Rowan is anxious about leaving Seattle and high school behind, while Neil can't wait to get out.• Both Rowan and Neil are Jewish.• Some of my inspirations: The Hating Game and the movies Dazed & Confused and Before Sunrise.

Today Tonight Tomorrow has a delicious format usually seen in movies, where all the events happen during the final day of high school for Rowan Roth and Neil McNair.In the four years the pair have attended the same school they have been rivals competing for everything, from grades, a position on the student council, science projects, and most recently the coveted position for valedictorian. But, the last day also has a special celebration for all seniors, a game of HOWL - a scavenger hunt assassin game across the city of Seattle, with a major prize of 5 thousand dollars to the winner. And the battle to settle all scores between Rowan and Neil.Although this is a brief synopsis of Today Tonight Tomorrow I can't begin to encapsulate here how this book is successful in relating those exact feelings that every graduate went through at some point. The giddiness of the last day, paired with fear, regrets, nostalgia, but deep excitement for what's to come. I can't praise Rachel Lynn Solomon's writing skills enough. I hear and talk about books that are unputdownable, this was more than that, I was glad to keep reading it even if it had over 900 pages and never wanted it to end. It was a complete delight to turn every page. I loved how the game o HOWl made this a tribute to Seattle, where we got to follow the clues and guess the locations with the characters. Loved how Rowan has a great passion for romance novels and how throughout the book she goes from embarrassed about them to defending how important and successful the genre is. I loved the tiny details at the beginning of the chapters that added depth and context to the story.Today Tonight Tomorrow was fun, refreshing, and clever. Definitely a book that I will come back to and read whenever I want something witty and heartfelt. This is going straight to my favorites of the year list, and I can't recommend it enough.---Previous update:This book... It deserves all the stars, it freaking deserves a category of its own awesomeness. I love everything about this. It was so good I've been rendered speechless. I'll come back soon with a more intelligent review, but just know that for now, I can't get over how much I LOVED THIS. It was fun, smart, original, nostalgic, heartfelt, swoony, and spectacular all around.

Definitely one that will take you away, give you a good time and both relate and grow to love these two way overachievers that almost missed out on something great. So glad I too, took a chance, dove in and had a great, heartwarming time. *ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

    I was so incredibly lucky to read an early version of this book! I loved this book, everything about it, and it’s a book that I wish I had as a teen. There were so many layers to this story, so I’m just going to list them out.One thing I absolutely adored was the deep and honest love and respect for romance novels. They weren’t treated like they were lesser, and I can’t even begin to tell you how validating that is. To see books that are so often treated like ‘trashy beach reads’ be revered and I was so incredibly lucky to read an early version of this book! I loved this book, everything about it, and it’s a book that I wish I had as a teen. There were so many layers to this story, so I’m just going to list them out.One thing I absolutely adored was the deep and honest love and respect for romance novels. They weren’t treated like they were lesser, and I can’t even begin to tell you how validating that is. To see books that are so often treated like ‘trashy beach reads’ be revered and discussed as important piece of the literature canon was so important. Teen me needed books like this. Books that say the things you love and care about are valid, that you don’t have to be ashamed of loving these things because society is determined to put it down simply because you love it. It was so good for my heart to see this.Rowan was such a fantastic main character, and her fear of what comes next was so relatable and so real. The last day of high school isn’t just a party, it’s standing on the edge of what was and what will be and being terrified you’ll never make it. And having no idea what ‘it’ even is, but knowing it won’t be what you know and what you’ve always excelled at and it was so well done in this book. I remember how scary it was to feel adulthood barreling toward you and not feeling ready to face it because it’s all uncertainty. Rowan has hopes and dreams and they also scare her and empower her and fulfill her, all at once, all at the same time, and the way she felt was so real. Without revealing too much, I will say she’s one of the bravest, boldest characters I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.Neil, the LI! I have so much love for him. First, let me say he is a teen boy who is an actual teen! He’s not some buff, chiseled man-god who has all his stuff together and happens to have a teen age slapped on to make him YA. He’s dorky and wears pants that are too short and jackets that are too long in the sleeves and his glasses are always slipping and he is into calligraphy and he’s covered in freckles. He’s that guy in your chemistry class who screwed up the grading curve for everyone. He’s that guy in line at Taco Bell cracking Star Wars jokes with his equally nerdy and endearing friends. Basically, he’s that guy you vaguely remember from a handful of grainy yearbook photos, but you know you might’ve had American Lit with him one year. And he is so much more than that. Because he is also one of the most beautiful, compassionate, and kind-hearted soft souls. And he’s so funny and sarcastic and flawed, but when he screws up, he’s given room to grow. He’s not perfect. He makes mistakes. He says the wrong things and does the wrong things and he also owns it and apologizes and he has the chance to do better. And I needed that soooooo much as a teen. To see characters who screw up and it’s not the end for them. To see characters who aren’t expected to be perfect, but who can be loved and cherished for exactly who they are. Because here’s something else that’s so incredibly important, when he’s been hurt, he’s given room to feel too. These are characters who at their heart were written FOR teens, not just about them. And this is absolutely a romcom, it’s hilarious and the banter is so spot on, I was grinning so hard my cheeks hurt while reading this, but it’s also a layered and complex story about growing up and moving on and letting go, and learning that people aren’t always going to fit into neat little boxes. Sometimes opening yourself up and embracing who you are and letting other people show you who they really are will lead you to exactly where you need to be.One of my all-time favorites, this book is not one to be missed. Highly, HIGHLY recommend.

Our main characters are fantastic. Rowan is determined but a little bit of a mess but in the way all seniors end up being by the end of the year, making her so relatable. Neil was a complete sweetheart and I could perfectly picture his shy smiles and embarrassed blushes against all his freckles. Their banter back and forth made me chuckle, and their slow burn romance gave me butterflies. Ahh first loves {{sigh}}"I must be obsessed with Neil McNair because even with him gone, he's all I can think about."Today Tonight Tomorrow is a well-rounded YA romance. The format of the book having text messages, fliers, and even school reports made the reading fun. Also, with Rowan being in love with romance novels and both her and Neil being Jewish, the story is really sex positive and has wonderful Jewish representation.

And they like to compete with each other in every single thing that they do at school.This book was an easy entertaining read.It was a cute YA story. But since the book takes place in 24 hours the romance was not really what I was expecting.There were definitely some things that I liked about this book. My favorite parts had to do with writing books. Rowan's parents are famous authors/illustrators of a popular children's series of books. Rowan has a favorite author that she desperately wants to meet. And Rowan is obsessed with romance novels and writing one. All of these things hit a chord with me.Most of this book is about a game that their high school plays on the last day of school. It is part Assassin and part scavenger hunt with the winner getting a cash prize.The idea of the game was interesting. But there were things that just didn't make sense to me. I didn't understand how certain people could be leading the game when they were doing so many other things that were not game related.I know that it's popular to have an entire book take place in one day. But for me it made the romance aspect not work as well. There was very little actual romance in the story.The book was cute and enjoyable while I was reading it. But I'm not sure I liked the ending. The book could be read by young teens until the end. But then end was a bit more adult and would make it seem 17+ for me.Thanks to netgalley and Simon & Schuster Canada for allowing me to read this book.

I loved the format of this book and how it kept you hanging on, making it a hard book to put down (evident in my lack of sleep). The character development was well executed and as a reader, you get to know the characters gradually and develop a liking for them. I also appreciated how there weren't the typical high school stereotypes most often written about with the "girl who falls for the bad boy" or "all high schoolers go to parties". Many high schoolers are like Neil and Rowan, socially awkward most of the time and not the unrealistic expectation society has for beauty/appearance. The average high schooler can connect with Rowan or Neil for their "quirks" (aka their personality). Rowan also showed a good perspective on literature, that we often throw whole genres/categories of books "out the window" to say, because of preconceived notions. I'm not that ashamed of my love for YA romance, but some people sometimes chuckle or laugh, which I understand, as there are many cheesy YA romances out there. Overall, I connected with this book a lot and I think it can bring others both a good story and an understanding of YA literature. (Side note: Maybe I should read some of this author's other books)

They're the same height (five five) and of the same intelligence, so it all boils down to who gets valedictorian at the end of their senior year. When it ends up being Neil (Rowan is salutatorian, which as far as I understand is the position just under him?) she determines to beat him at Howl, a senior game which is basically like a scavenger hunt with Assassins' Guild thrown in. Whoever makes it to the end 'alive' wins $5000. Though Rowan initially wants to win, she overhears a bunch of their classmates planning on teaming up to take her and Neil out. The only option is for her to work with her nemesis and team up themselves. Okay, so:➽ Neil was funny and I liked him, but I was less enamoured with Rowan. She's very emotionally closed off, keeps ditching her friends for Neil (something that is pointed out to her but she never actually fixes, in fact she makes it worse) and I just never connected with her in general. ➽ I liked how a strong theme of the book was all about the ribbing romance readers get, and Rowan's efforts to combat that. As someone who wrote a dissertation on Georgette Heyer, it really resonated with me. ➽ Like I said, there came a point when I was slightly exhausted with the book and just wanted it to end, already. Quite a bit of material could have been cut.➽ Overall, it was an enjoyable book - just had low points that mean I docked a couple of stars.[Blog] - [Bookstagram]

    I started this book last night at around 12:00AM and thought to myself, just read a few chapters and go to bed. INSTEAD, I stayed awake until the early hours of this morning and finished the whole thing.I would LOVE to see this book become a movie.

INSTEAD, I stayed awake until the early hours of this morning and finished the whole thing.I would LOVE to see this book become a movie. I could imagine everything so vividly in my head and I think it would translate so well as a movie. Anyways, this was truly wonderful. Rowan and Neil rivalled each other from pretty much the moment they met. The two of them always competing for the top of their class, or the occasional contest, find their last competition in waiting to see who will be valedictorian. The two of them have been explosive as a duo for so long, but when they settle down they realize that all this really just helped bring out the absolute best in their academics. Now it's time for Howl, the annual senior scavenger hunt, and Rowan and Neil are at it one more time. I loved their banter and constant teasing/bickering. I never felt like they were attacks but just little jabs were so fun and as these two spent more time together I just loved the characters more and more.I felt like Rowan was just me in a character (minus me being Jewish because I am not). All her struggles and insecurities I felt and I loved and connected with her from the very beginning. Her love for romance and all the crap she gets for it is what I deal with on a daily basis and she said exactly what I think every day of my life.Today Tonight Tomorrow is a fun enemies to lovers story following two teens that are nearing their final days of school and yet, are still learning so much... about each other. If I had the physical book in my hands, I would've hugged it every time something sweet happened. Anyways, I have run out of coherent thoughts. I just loved this a lot and I wish great things for it.Thank you, thank you, thank you NetGalley and Simon & Schuster Canada for the ARC in exchange for an honest review______________________________________pre-read: I want this yesterday

    The Hating Game meets Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by way of Morgan MatsonAm I the only one who cringes whenever publishers/whoever the hell writes these descriptions for Goodreads uses too many comparisons with other books to describe a book? Like damn ma, is it that serious?

    4.25 starsAfter reading the summary, I was really excited to read this book! I mean, the whole scavenger hunt-assassin game sounded cool but also the fact that this takes place at the end of high school...I knew that I would like it and I was right. Today Tonight Tomorrow tells a story of realizations: rivals realizing that maybe they have more in common than they thought and Rowan realizing that maybe life after high school won't be so bad after all.full review to comeoriginal review:this was r 4.25 starsAfter reading the summary, I was really excited to read this book!

    When I saw that this book was compared to The Hating Game, I was immediately interested. My favorite trope is the opposites attract one, where both main characters almost despise each other, and Today Tonight Tomorrow definitely delivered. The story begins on the morning of Rowan's last day of high school. She's worked so hard all of high school, and it's all coming to an end. She has high hopes of scoring the spot of valedictorian against her long time school rival, Neil, a final win in a sea o When I saw that this book was compared to The Hating Game, I was immediately interested. My favorite trope is the opposites attract one, where both main characters almost despise each other, and Today Tonight Tomorrow definitely delivered. The story begins on the morning of Rowan's last day of high school. She's worked so hard all of high school, and it's all coming to an end. She has high hopes of scoring the spot of valedictorian against her long time school rival, Neil, a final win in a sea of competitions for being number 1. However, her morning doesn't turn out quite like she expected. After losing to Neil, Rowan is determined to beat him in the final game Howl -- a school tradition scavenger hunt.What I loved about this book is that it was fun and also really cute. Despite reminding me of the last day of high school that I will never have (haha good old corona) in the beginning, I eventually got swept up in the story. Rowan and Neil's banter is so lighthearted, with sometimes a less than playful jab thrown in there, but that's what made it interesting. I love the setting-- a mildly bloodthirsty scavenger hunt across the entirety of Seattle. It gave me wicked Hunger Games vibes, only less actual fighting-to-the-death (kind of). It was the perfect backdrop for enemies becoming friends, and maybe even more than that. Aside from how fun this story was, in a lot of ways it exceeded the cliche romance. There is depth to these characters that goes further than a 4-year long rivalry. Both Rowan and Neil struggle with their identities, and learning how to fit in, while still trying to stand out from the rest.**i received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

    First, thanks to NetGalley for this e-ARC.This book is so lovely and absolutely what I needed right now. I'm just going to do a list:-A+ diversity in all the ways-Sex-positive-Romance novel positive!-Literacy and education in general positive (which may sound dumb to point out, but I'm delighted by these nerds)-Wacky adventures with stuff teenagers would actually do (sneaking crushes into your bedroom, pot cookies, irresponsible driving)-Enemies to lovers, a much loved trope, done very well and First, thanks to NetGalley for this e-ARC.This book is so lovely and absolutely what I needed right now.

The minute I read "class of 2020!", I was immediately taken out of the story I'm a high school teacher and I teach all seniors and I'm watching them all be miserable and sad and heartbroken and I can't imagine a world wherein they can be wacky and silly and have an actual graduation day. It's just not going to happen. Even believing in an alternate reality of summer 2020 just isn't possible in the wake of the current global pandemic. So this has to take place in 2019. Even pushing it to 2021, there has to be a discussion of why this graduation is so special and needed. Long story short, I'm so curious as to how authors are going to change their stories around COVID-19 because pretending it doesn't exist seems contrary to everything YA stands for, which is facing things head on and being honest.Back to the positives, I adored this book. It's cute and fun and I will certainly read the final copy.
