    One thought on “Signs”

    1. Signs is pitch perfect.There is no angst, misunderstandings, or miscommunication, just two 18-year-old boys meeting, connecting, and falling in love.Both MCs are fully realized and REAL. Caleb is deaf and has social anxiety. He's not expressive in his signing and doesn't feel like he belongs in the Deaf community. He just wants to be defined by what he CAN do vs. what he can't. And Caleb can do so much: He's smart and artistic. He takes gorgeous photographs. He enjoys writing, running, and posti [...]

    2. You'd expect a book with no bad real guys and no huge misunderstandings, inevitably resulting in a big, ole' angsty breakup, then reconciliation to be boring, right?Well, this book definitely proves just how wrong that statement can be, especially when you consider that this is a YA story about two 18 y.o. high school students, Caleb, who is deaf, and Luc, who is a troubled emo kid, falling in love.Caleb:Luc:The story is one of growing to love someone for who they truly are, proverbial warts and [...]

    3. Truly an outstanding romance. No ass clenching angst, no stupid misunderstandings, no bullshit drama and no (that I noticed) grammar/editing issues! Books like this are the reason I continue to read. Highly recommended!

    4. Lo que hizo que me decidiera a leer este libro fue que uno de los personajes era sordo (Caleb). Cuando leo libros en los que los protagonistas tienen ciertos tipos de problemas, no es porque me guste verlos sufrir, es porque me parece muy interesante cómo van saltando las vallas que la vida les va poniendo en el camino. En este caso, la existencia de un MC sordo planteaba lo complicada que puede ser la comunicación, algo esencial para el nacimiento y desarrollo de cualquier relación. Cierto e [...]

    5. Perfect Trisha book!Sometimes I fall in love with books that I wouldn’t typically fall in love with. Other times the books I fall in love with are more my thing. But it isn’t often I stumble across a Trisha book. They are hard to come by for me and what I normally find is someone has to recommend them to me before I decide to read them, just like with Signs.The MC’s, Caleb and Luc, meet on Tumblr after Luc reblogs one of Caleb’s photographs. What starts out as friendship, turns into more [...]

    6. "In this world of availability, how does a person who's unable to communicate with the outside world find their place in it? My name is Caleb. I'm deaf. This is my blog."And BAM! With these opening lines I'm completely hooked but still unaware I'm about to read one of the most beautiful Υ/Α love stories. Luc is an 18-year-old emo boy.Despite his laid back attitude and the emo/goth appearance (black hair, eyeliner, piercings, nail polish e.t.c), he is alone .Still hurt from the emotional abuse [...]

    7. I have been having the hardest time lately choosing which book to read. This one had been on my Kindle for awhile and I am so glad that my annoying book funk led me to land on this one. It is such an easy enjoyable lovable read. These characters hit me hard.They are easy to love and that ending! UGH!The way it ended has me hoping for a sequel cause it was left wide open for one.

    8. Caleb is a deaf teenager that has closed himself off to the world. He's reluctant to show his emotions on his face, as well as with his hands. He never felt like he fit it in at special schools, so his parents finally sent him to the local public high school in his senior year. All Caleb has always wanted is to be normal. He's tired and sick of people, who don't see that there's more to him than only his disability and freak out, when they catch the sight of his hearing aids. He also hates that [...]

    9. ****4.5 STARS****This book? I. Absolutley. Love! It was beyond freaking adorable!It had sooo many sweet moments without it being cheesy or over done. Like I seriously wanted to post an update for every damn page (ok. not that often. But you know what I'm saying). And if it wasn't for my BR/whatsApp crew listening to me swoon, I so would of blown-up your feed with updates. #truestoryHighly recommended! The only tiny complaint I would have is a few scene jumps. Where I'd be, "when did that happen? [...]

    10. So I read a book the other day that I just knew my bestie would love too. She didn’t. Her review starts with:"Every single one of my friends loved this book." "Except me."So, I am kind of starting my review with that too. But just kind of.It’s funny, when reading her review of the other book I could see her point and I started thinking that maybe I shouldn’t have liked it either but realized that what she was pointing out is actually what I liked. I liked the realness of the book. Anyway, [...]

    11. I had very high hopes for this because the sample was very compelling and the story sounded lovely, and while the story itself was fine, the writing didn't work for me, and ultimately, I didn't enjoy the book very much.My biggest problem with the book is that the author did way more telling than showing, and it started very early on. Caleb and Luc meet online, via tumblr, and start messaging each other, quickly progressing to video chats. We get a couple of their conversations--web chats and tex [...]

    12. I am loving these stories by Ms Martin a lot BUT they all end too abruptly. I need some kind of epilogue to look into their future. Although I don't doubt the love and future of the characters, it's probably just me being greedy.

    13. A very sweet story about Caleb and Luc. Caleb is deaf and has a hard time making friends. He meets Luc online and they strike up a friendship. They live 4 hours apart, but make frequent weekend trips to visit each other. They jump into a relationship quickly, but it didn't seem rushed to me. I loved them both, but especially Luc. He is so patient with Caleb. A very enjoyable read with minimal angst and an HEA :)

    14. I just loved this book. I could have read 20 more chapters with Luc and Caleb because they were just that adorable and lovable.

    15. I could have easily given this book four stars had there been a little more showing and a lot less telling. Martin seemed to fly through the intricacies of the romance in favor of focusing on Caleb's disability. I understand the fact that Caleb is deaf is a big plot point, but I can't help but think the point of this book was to showcase Caleb and Luc's romance in the face of said disability. Instead, their pivotal "getting to know you" stage was completely glossed over with a few sentences. "Ov [...]

    16. First off, this cover is giving me "The Gates" Colton Hayes life, and I love it because Caleb is an amazing character.Anna Martin's writing usually goes two ways for me. I either love it enough that it's a 5 star read, or it's a DNF for me. I was super skeptical of reading this because of the blurb my main weakness is hurt/comfort throw in a disability and I'm trapped. I read this book and one sitting and I feel in love with the characters. I love the main characters of the story, not so much th [...]

    17. This is a sweet, steady YA-ish story (there is some on-page sex, although not deeply erotic.) Caleb is a deaf 18-year-old, a high-school senior who has isolated himself from both his hearing and Deaf peers for the most part, although he attends school. He has anxiety issues and no real friends, and lives mainly through his photography and online interactions.Luc is also a senior, gay and sort of out, fond of metal music and eyeliner. He lives with his older sister, and a mostly absent alcoholic [...]

    18. It a full gone conclusion that I just cant do YA novels. This is a DNF for me @ 15%. This is NOT the books fault. its all on me. YA and I just dont get along. It has to be exceptionally done for me to read a book that is in the same age group as my kid. I've gotten old cause 5-7 years ago I wouldnt have batted an eye!And maybe its cause I see how he would handle some of the same situations and because I"M LIVING IT I can't escape into it. Might not make sense but its just how I feelAIN- nothing [...]

    19. 4.5 StarsWhat a beautiful story.*sigh*Caleb and Luc’s story was one of the sweetest, most unassuming romances I’ve come across in a long while. I loved every second of it.I adored both characters equally. Caleb, the deaf and socially isolated 18 yr old from Boston, who uses online means to express himself through his art and blog posts; and Luc, the emo kid from NYC, who has bundles of familial issues and suffers from nightmares, insomnia and feelings of being misunderstood. Through online m [...]

    20. A very sweet and soft love story about two characters who don't particularly fit into the worlds they live in, but fit perfectly together. Luc and Caleb compliment each other well with their strengths and weaknesses, they are very Yin/Yang in the best possible sense. There is very little angst in the story, and all possible obstacles are cleared up or fixed with unbelievable ease, but I didn't care, because it was so sweetly done.I would have preferred a HEA rather than the HFN. Mostly because t [...]

    21. AH! YOUNG LOVE! This was certainly an enjoyable read. I, more often than not, avoid reading books involving teenagers because of all the unnecessary drama usually found in them but, this book had absolutely none of it. The writing was beautiful, the steam tastefully done and the story exceptionally touching.I loved every single aspect of this heartwarming book and the lovely (& almost too perfect) relationship between Luc and Caleb.If you are looking for warm and fluffy, this is for you. :)

    22. *I think I need this book now! I wish I didn't have to work today*======================I fell so hard in love with these two young men. They are both amazing and will do such wonderful things in their lives. I hope for the chance to catch up with them both one day.My best friends son is hearing impaired and he has a CI. This book definitely touched my heart in a very real way. <3Anna Martin you did a fantastic job telling Caleb & Lucs story. Thank You.

    23. Sweet. A bit fairy-tale like since pretty much everything runs smoothly for the two of them. Nothing wrong with it; I don't mind lack of drama and/or homophobic behavior (it could be tiresome to read). But the whole story was not emotionally engaging for me personally. Probably because I had a little hard time connecting with the young men and young love in this book.

    24. Sweet and angst-free story about two boys and how they make each other complete. They are imperfect, well rounded characters with real problems and bagage, but together they are perfect. Love the story, recommended to anyone who needs a HEA ASAP

    25. Disclaimer: make no mistake, this is pretty much a gay/first love fairy tale. I am perfectly fine with that but I wasn't looking for some harsh reality when I chose to read this. Could this story happen in real life? I don't know but sure, maybe, why not? And does it matter? Who reads romance for only realistic stories, anyway? This was so sweet. Someone else said this is a comfort read after you've read something dark and that is so true. I've read a few depressing books this week and this one [...]
