    One thought on “Tash Hearts Tolstoy”

    1. okay but seriously, I need a heart on fire emoji to better demonstrate my passion for this bookReading this book was the equivalent of that feeling when you first step in a warm bath after a long day. It’s so crazy how you think your feelings and experiences are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read and it’s like out of all the words that have been knocking against your head, someone just reached out and simply snatched the right one.Honestly. I love this book more tha [...]

    2. I really really loved this book! It is one of those books I could not stop thinking about every time I had to put it down. Such a fabulous contemporary that I would highly recommend!Tash Hearts Tolstoyfeatures a ton of unique elements we aren't normally exposed to in YA as well as featuring diverse characters:-Romantic asexual main character-m/m relationship-MC is a vegetarian (seriously, why do we not have more vegetarian/vegan main characters???)-MC is a Buddhist (was not expecting this but ha [...]

    3. Ooh this was such a cutely great book about internet fame! Of course obviously I read it in order to glean tips so I, too, can get like 50,000 followers over night. Did I get any good tips? HAHAHA HHAHA HAHAHA. No. But yet the book was absolutely adorable and funny and sweet, so that at least saves things. It also features an asexual protagonist. And also a lot of Russian literature. #NiceAlso I have to admit I'm not hugely into youtube. Although I do watch ||Superwoman|| because reasons. AND I [...]

    4. I, too, heart Tolstoy and that was pretty much my main reason for picking up this ARC. But then the story turned out to have an asexual main character, which was such a great surprise. Do you know how rare that is?!?!?Tash is a teen who's in love with Tolstoy and spends her free time creating a YouTube series with her friends that's a modernization of Anna Karenina. One day a vlogger gives them a shoutout and suddenly they're going viral with over 50,000 followers.Tash and her friends spend a lo [...]

    5. I know we’re not even all of the way through the first month of 2018 but DAMN this has already been a fantastic year for me in books.I was a little nervous to start Tash Hearts Tolstoy, because none of my close friends had read it yet and I didn’t have any strong recommendations or endorsements to go off of. Also, I have yet to read Anna Karenina or anything else by Tolstoy, so I was also worried there would be too many references I wouldn’t understand. Mainly, I was REALLY hoping I would [...]

    6. Okay yes, but what now? How am I supposed to go on with my life with no more Tash, Paul, Jack and Unhappy Families? It's a serious question, I'm telling you.It was only my second book with an ace MC, and fuck, give me more. I'm 100% there for this content.First thing you need to know about me : I'm a real Anna Karenina trash. Like if you could see the way my first copy looks right now you'd feel horrible for it and probably would want to sue me. My copy looks like it has been read way too many t [...]

    7. Logo de cara eu me apaixonei pela personalidade da Tash e acompanhar a sua jornada foi muito divertido. Esse foi o primeiro livro com protagonista assexual que eu li e essa história é tão importante. Achei muito honesta a maneira como a autora criou essa adolescente de 17 anos que é ace. Todas as dúvidas sobre isso que eu tive como leitor, foram explicadas atrás das dúvidas e conflitos que a própria Tash tinha. Nenhuma informação é jogada na nossa cara como um artigo de .A sexualidade [...]

    8. I’m honestly super torn over how I feel about this story. It was cute, had great ace rep, and talked about the amazing INTERNET, but it was also slow, almost kind of boring, and just ?? I DON’T KNOW. Something huge was missing for me, but I really don’t know WHAT.L I K E S- ACE REP!! There is DEFINITELY not enough ace rep in YA and it was so refreshing to read a book with that. I feel like it was done very well (tho I can’t speak from experience), and the reactions to the fact that Tash [...]

    9. 4.5* Tash Hearts Tolstoy is the kind of book that's impossible to put down. It is so easy flowing that, before I knew it, I found myself almost finished, having to force myself to stop reading because I had to 'life' instead. There were so many aspects to this book that are unfortunately not all that common in YA and I loved them. It had a cast of characters with various religions, sexualities, upbringings and individual stories. The MC was asexual which was fantastic to read. This gave such a g [...]

    10. Edit, based on reread 6/14/17 - YES, 4.5 stars. TASH HEARTS TOLSTOY is an incredible, fluffy addition to YA that I know many readers that love SIMON VS or ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS will fall in love with. This book features a cast of realistic characters that you'll adore in some parts and relate to in others. Tash, our main character, is asexual, and this book adds much needed representation in YA that I loved to read about. Even though the book does not exist as an info guide to asexuality, I t [...]

    11. Trigger warnings: aphobia, parent with cancer.4.25 stars.I was SUPER excited when I heard about this book. Likea YA contemporary with an asexual main character that's coming out of a major publishing house? WHAT IS HAPPENING I HAVE TO SCREAM FOREVER AND EVER. So obviously, I read it pretty much straight away. And it was cute. Super cute. I highlighted decent chunks of it, and I'm not a highlighter when it comes to books. The ace rep is good. The characters are fun. The story was compelling. I li [...]

    12. OMG! A book about an asexual character?! GIVE IT TO ME, RIGHT NOW!Finally! I'm not alone in this world! I've only read one ace YA book so far. Don't even know if there are others out there. I'm so glad these books even exist.*after reading* One of the biggest surprised of 2017 has been Tash Hearts Tolstoy. It has so much heart I honestly can't give it anything less than 5 stars. As an aro asexual individual, I'd like to say most of the things Tash said were spot on. Ormsbee really did her resear [...]

    13. Reasons to read this book: 1. Asexual protagonist (and lots of important conversations about being ace)2. SO MUCH INTERNET3. A web series that's an adaptation of Anna Karenina, which is amazing4. Great, great, great friendships and families5. Very excellent in general

    14. Full review originally posted on my blog: Word WondersI got this book when it first came out and was super excited to read it but then arcs and responsibilities and OTHER books got in the way and I only got to it four months later. Oups? Anyway, better late than never, right? So I finally read it and I gotta say, I’m not exactly disappointed because I still really enjoyed it but I was underwhelmed. I don’t know what exactly I expected but this wasn’t exactly it and that is alright because [...]

    15. Splendid and engaging contemporary for all your contemporary needs!Tash Hearts Tolstoy is a story about Tash Zelenka, who's producing a web series modern retelling of Anna Karenina with her friends. Prepare for light-hearted and realistic story, full of production shenanigans, self-discoveries, focus on all kind of relationships (with parents, siblings, friends, coworkers etc)Tash is the protagonist. She's ambitious, determined and very passionate about filmmaking. She's well-crafted complex cha [...]

    16. 4.5 starsI love love loved the premise of this book and had seen a few people gushing about it, so I was wary about it. I really liked Tash. I loved being in her head, even when she's maybe being neurotic and super type A. I really enjoyed reading her struggle to figure things out --which sounds weird, but it was realistic to see it. Jack and Paul were fantastic and their friendship was one of the highlights for me. Plot wise, there were parts that were a little slow. I didn't quite care for all [...]

    17. Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for approving my request for a free digital copy in exchange for a review. Tash Hearts Tolstoy excels in its representation. The YA community has been hyped about this book for quite some time now. The main reason is the fact that this book features an established asexual character. There is no reading between the lines, this chapter is ace (pun intended). In fact, the word asexual is mentioned eleven times in this book. This is the kind of rep the asexual c [...]

    18. dnf @ 50% because the mc is obnoxious af and i don't like the story also ace representation feels icky but maybe it's just me~~~~(i fucking hate leo tolstoy tho)

    19. Às vezes é importante nos vermos representados em uma história. E às vezes é importante ver pessoas próximas de nós representadas nessas histórias, já que a literatura ajuda no exercício de se colocar no lugar do outro. "Tash e Tolstói" segue o que chamo de literatura do cotidiano: eventos do dia a dia que vão simplesmente acontecendo, sem que haja um grande inimigo a ser vencido, fim do mundo se aproximando ou coisa parecida. Mesmo o objetivo final da história - no caso: viajar par [...]

    20. This book was soooo cute. It was adorable and funny and *sigh*Tash Hearts Tolstoy follows Natasha “Tash” Zelenka and her friends who become famous overnight. Tash is obsessed with Tolstoy and decided to create and direct a webseries that retells Anna Karenina in a modern way. After a famous Youtuber gives them a shout-out they find themselves going viral with 40,000+ new followers. I loved all the supporting characters. But I’ll admit it took me a while to figure out who was who. I feel li [...]

    21. This book means the world to me. I want to cry because it's the first time I've felt close to a representation of my sexuality, because I'm demisexual and so many of Tash's experiences were similar to mine. I loved how Tash said Tolstoy was her 'dead Russian boyfriend' and how she talked to her poster sometimes. I loved how she was a vegetarian and sometimes ate snacks because there was no vegetarian options. I loved how she had a YouTube channel where she drank tea and talked about her favourit [...]

    22. 3.5 starsAn adorable and fluffy read about unexpected online fame after starting a web series. There are so many ideas here that I found relatable as a blogger:- how more followers affects your craft- dealing with online trolls- meeting online friends in real life - sharing the love for what you do with others- meeting your blogging inspirations- vloggers online vs in real lifeTash is also ace and is convinced that would ruin any future relationship prospects. I loved this exploration into her i [...]

    23. You can read my full review on my blog.() Here we are. Sure, I wasn’t in the best mood to read it and yes, it is cliché and Tash can be annoying and not many things happen and you don’t really see her vlog and stuff but it is important. I know it helped many people and I hope it’ll continue to do so. It is a very simple, yet beautiful book that now has a very special place in my heart.I am so glad I read it, well I am glad my friend Lucie pushed me to read it, and it will stick with me fo [...]

    24. This review and others can be found on BW Book Reviews.3.5/5"Sex is a normal part of life. We're all sexual beings." And all I could think was, Not me, why not me.When I asked for recommendations of books with asexual characters, my friends really did help me out. This is just the first I'm reading of them and I fully plan on reading more at some point.This book, basically, follows Natasha (who goes by Tash) Zelenka and her rise to fame. Along with some family, friend, and romance problems. I'm [...]

    25. 4.5 stars!I'm not that kind of person who rates a book high just because of diversity.If the book 's going to represent something it should do it really goodIS book?This book is a blessing from book gods to their ace worshipers!Tash,the MC,is an ace teenager who LOVES Tolstoy and makes a web series,with her bestfriend Jack,that is calledUnhappy Families.Unhappy Families is adapted from Tolstoy's book,Anna Karenina.This book is not only AMAZING at representing asexuality,but the way that shows th [...]

    26. 2.5 STARSThe more I think about this book, the more I don't care for it.First of all, I can't get over how unrealistic this book is. As someone who has been making youtube videos for almost two years, I was expecting to appreciate the effort shown by a vlogger in a book. Instead I felt cheated. First of all, our main character makes it fairly clear her family doesn't really make much money and that she only works a part time job in the summer. That being said, where on earth did she managed to g [...]

    27. This book is me. In almost every sense of the word. I'm so incredibly grateful I got to read it five months early!!! What don't I love about Tash? I think my only criticism is that the author references revealing the gender of a baby instead of sex. Otherwise, I'm pretty content. Was the love interest obvious? Sure. Was it a little cliche at times? Maybe. Do I care? To quote my dear friend Ingrid Michaelson, HELLLLL NOOOOOOAs far as ace rep, this book did AN AMAZING JOB! Now if you're aro/ace it [...]

    28. Quite The Novel Idea ~ Words from the Clouds3.5 starsTash Hearts Tolstoy was a perfectly lovely, diverse read with epic friendships and awesome parents (!) that I probably should have loved a lot but instead I'm kind of swaying on that thin border between love and like and hoping I don't fall to my death on someone's torch or pitchfork. Because yes, this book had lots of awesome things that I loved but it also had things I had issues with and that make me wail in agony because I wanted to adore [...]
