    I'M WITH CUPID by Anna Staniszewski is a perfect read for a middle school girl. I loved this cute little read, and it was a great spin on the cupid myth as well as the grim reaper myth. I really enjoyed getting to know Marcus and Lena's world, even if I thought the ending was a little bit loose. The entire time when I was reading this, I was envisioning 13 Going on 30. This book has the same charm, the same humor and the same sweetness (without the whole adulthood thing, of course).

This book has the same charm, the same humor and the same sweetness (without the whole adulthood thing, of course). Plus, the closet scene where Lena and Marcus' powers get switched was the whole key to the 13 Going on 30 deal. I loved the way that the love in this story is kind of unusual. There's Lena, who believes that the idea of love is just composed of chemicals in the brain and Marcus, who is shy and doesn't talk much. They both have their own issues, and they're both very unique characters, but they manage to come together and make this story. I enjoyed the way that they got to know each other and work through their situation. All in all, this book is classic Staniszewski. Well-written, charming and a great read. However, I did think that the ending to I'M WITH CUPID was a little loose. I wanted more tied-up ends as to what ended up happening and the consequences to the switching of their powers. Honestly though, it wasn't that much of a blow to the novel. I still really enjoyed this story, and I look forward to more from Staniszewski. Would recommend for girls 11 - 14. 4 stars.

    This book was not my favorite. I thought that it was a very consistent book and kept on the same topic. I wish it had more about other characters feelings.

    I’m With Cupid is a book about a reaper and a cupid who switch powers on their first kiss. After Marcus and Lena switch powers, everything is chaotic. Marcus has the powers to take souls and Lena gets the powers to machmake. They have to make sure they don’t touch anyone or else some bad things can happen. It is hard at home to not touch anyone, but, at school, it is harder for them. Anna Staniszewski, makes this book fun and exciting! There are a lot of stuff in this book that I enjoyed!

There are a couple chapters that are a little more slow, but, when you put them all together, it makes sense. Even with some parts being slow, this book was not boring. It was fun to read! This is a book where you would most likely laugh. In ways, I can connect to Marcus and in other ways, I can connect with Lena. People who like love stories should read this book. This book was a good book to read! Sometimes you have to talk to people you wouldn't usually talk to. You may not even know anything about them. You might not have seen this person before. That person you talk to may end up becoming your best friend. This book tells you a story kind of like that. It is a good book!

    My first introduction to Anna Staniszewski's writing was The Dirt Diary, which was nominated last year in the Realistic Fiction Category of the Cybils. I really enjoyed it and was looking forward to reading another book from her new series which was nominated this year.

I really enjoyed it and was looking forward to reading another book from her new series which was nominated this year. In this newest series, I'm with Cupid, she has an interesting twist on the premise of switching up two characters. I'm pretty familiar with the body swapping idea from movies like Thirteen Going on Thirty, Freaky Friday or It's a Boy Girl Thing. You know the one where a thirteen year old girl becomes a thirty year old women, or a mother and daughter or boy and girl swap bodies. I'm With Cupid isn't quite that kind of swap, instead the characters swap powers when they are dared to kiss at a party. You see Marcus is a Cupid and Lena is a reaper. As you can probably guess, this results in some pretty humorous consequences. What I enjoyed most about the book was how they really were such opposites of one another and their swap really brought them face to face with the thing they've been avoiding themselves. Marcus was so adorably shy, awkward and hopelessly smitten with Lena (for which she has no clue), he's also been holding on to things because he can't let them go. He's emotional, for which he took way to much flack from his father over. Being a Cupid, he believes in love at first sight, romance and there is someone out there for everyone. Whereas, Lena doesn't believe in love or such fairy tale things. She feels she is practical, well adjusted and grounded over ideas like moving on and that death is just a part of life. Her approach to things is very different then that of Marcus, which just makes things more interesting and difficult for the two of them when they have to adjust to their new found powers. Lena and Marcus have to really communicate with each other about having powers and teach each other how to use them correctly. So you can imagine there are some mishaps when you put a reaper in charge of sparking attraction between two people and then also put Cupid in charge of collecting souls. Overall a very quick read and sweet introduction to a new series. I received a review copy for the purposes of its nomination for the Cybils award, and my review reflects my personal opinion, not the opinion of the Cybils committee.

    I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I found this book quirky and sweet. Lena and Marcus alternated POV's which was great because you got to see both sides of how the powers were meant to work and how exactly they went wrong. It's kinda like freaky Friday with powers instead of body swapping. Lots of havoc was had and the hierarchy of reapers and cupids was interesting, made perfect sense.

I did wonder a little how their families didn't notice they were out all the time since they were still quite young. I loved how the story unfolded, it was a little juvenile but it suited the story, it was about learning powers, first loves and growing up. The romance between Lena and Marcus was good since it wasn't insta-love, they had known each other for a while. It progresses at a good pace with a few bumps that only teenagers can come across. Overall it was a sweet read and I would carry on the series. 3 out of 5 stars

    A great balance of humor, drama, fantasy and romance make this a fantastic middle grade book, especially for girls. The author revealed just enough in each chapter to convince me I had to read the next chapter and before I knew it I had read the entire book in one sitting. The characters felt like authentic middle school students, despite their special powers, and I really felt attached to the two protagonists by the end.

    This book is VERY different from the dirt diary series Anna Staniszewski wrote. I really liked this book like everyother book she wrote. This book relates to My very un fairy tale series because there is a girl or on this case a guy and a girl whk have these special powers help people/magical people. Lena's is taking people souls from their bodies and Marcus's is maming people fall and love with a spark of light. All of this happened because of a dare to kiss.

    I thought the book was outstanding . The way Lena developed as a character way very nice bout the book . Also, the way that she got herself together and found away to get her powers back . I would say that the characters played their part well. The book was very descripted and whenever I was reading it I could see the book playing in my head.

    Cute! I thought it'd be more teen since the characters are almost 14, but this is a perfect 5-6 grade/middle school children's fic. Cute! I thought it'd be more teen since the characters are almost 14, but this is a perfect 5-6 grade/middle school children's fic.

    This book is very good. It was very good and the end was very good and it was also a good cliffhanger. So I would recommend this book to a person who likes magic or stuff that is not really real.

I liked how Marcus and Lena met. I liked the plot and the secondary characters were interesting without overshadowing the main characters. It is definitely a teen/young adult book, but not so young that an adult could not enjoy it. Not sure if I will keep reading the series or not.

    Overall I liked this book. It was cute and enjoyable. However, I thought that it was unnecessary for the author to make Marcus' life so terrible. It was bad enough that his father was that guy that was a jock and couldn't deal with his son not being one. Plus his sister was that annoying overachiever who took pride in knowing that she was more liked by the dad then he was. On top of that the author was like hey let's have him get beat up and picked on everyday by a bully. It was horrible and I f Overall I liked this book. It was cute and enjoyable.

    I honestly have a thing for this teenage drama so I wanted to see what this was all about. I come to learn that a 13-year-old girl named Lena has a list of what to do before she turns fourteen. There's teenage drama, dumb romance to be honest and just kind of interesting to read. Reading these kinds of drama teenage books get me wanting to read more unless there immature. Somewhat this story had detail but somewhat very immature. I honestly have a thing for this teenage drama so I wanted to see what this was all about.

    3 stars because Lena was very very very annoying, hard to read in her POV and there was a part where they have a fight because Marcus needs to release his Grandfather's soul and he says Lena is a robot and they argue then she turns around and helps??? But Marcus was sweet except how did that Caspar bully dude grow twice in size and why did he not die? 3 stars because Lena was very very very annoying, hard to read in her POV and there was a part where they have a fight because Marcus needs to release his Grandfather's soul and he says Lena is a robot and they argue then she turns around and helps???

    Who knew a kiss could cause so much trouble. The day after Marcus and Lena are dared to kiss at a party, they discover they have acquired unwelcome abilities. How can they fix things? This is a fun read with endearing characters!

    This book was super awesome!! I totally loved everything from the plot to how both Lena and Marcus act with or without each other. I also liked the concept that the author was switching chapters like first went Marcus’s chapter and then Lena’s.

    So I finally had a chance to read this book, I have bought it some months ago for a bargain price, but until 2 days ago just wasn't in the mood for it. But then I was, and then I just flew through the book. It was really good, it was awesome! Now I hear you say, why if it is so awesome did you only rate it 3.5 stars? Marcus.

But then I was, and then I just flew through the book. It was really good, it was awesome! Now I hear you say, why if it is so awesome did you only rate it 3.5 stars? Marcus. Marcus is always the answer. I just disliked him so much. I couldn't give a care in the world for his family stuff (though yes, I was frustrated with the dad). I disliked how he treated Lena, how he trusted that date book a bit too much. Sorry, but you kissed 3 times, I know, but those were all dares/forced kisses, that doesn't make someone your girlfriend, why are you so shocked when you see that she likes someone else. Are you that blind that you can't see she is not into you (at least in the beginning)? But no, we had to read all about his creepiness. Also his constant boohooing about the reaper stuff also got slightly annoying. He did improve very much later on, so I will definitely be reading the second book, because I want to know what will happen between these 2 characters. Lena was a pretty fun girl, though her stubbornness about love got a bit too much, but then again, if you heard from your scientist dad that love is nothing but some stuff, and that it doesn't exist, and if you hear that from little kid to now, I can imagine she might not be able to think anything else. It wouldn't be the first time that a kid blindly believes what her parents tell her. Especially when it is years of hearing it. I was also amazed at the fact that she couldn't see how stiff she was being on stage. How she needed to hear it from more people before she finally started realising it. But the same goes for her, she changes, and thankfully way faster than Marcus. It was a fun change to see, I hope she can be even more open and more happy in the future. I was also interested more in her family life. I was so rooting for her dad and Marguerite to be together. That family definitely deserves some love and happiness again. The idea of people having powers was the main reason why I picked up this book. Reapers? Cupids? Yes, yes please! It sounded so perfectly fun, and I couldn't wait what the book meant for those things. Would Lena have a scythe? Would Marcus be shooting some kind of invisible arrows? How did they know who needed them? And now after reading I know all the answers to it, and more! I loved the idea that they swapped their powers and all the chaos that came with it. It was interesting how they found out, and how they tried getting their powers back to themselves. Also definite plus-points to the title of this book. :P All in all, I flew through the book, and I would also still recommend it to people as it was a fun ride. With magic, with some budding romance, with realistic stuff (divorces, death, bullying). Review first posted at https://twirlingbookprincess.com/

I devoured this book, I could not put it down! Though I thought once they switched powers they were going to get in a lot more trouble than they did however the trouble they did get into was enough for the story. Lena is a reaper and with her scientist of a father, she doesn't believe in love. It's just a bunch of chemicals and nothing more- so you know she was super excited to switch powers with a cupid. Not! And then there's Marcus (loved reading behind his eyes just a bit more than Lena's) who is a "matchmaker" as he likes to correct Lena haha. Not a diaper wearing cupid. He can't handle death, not like Lena. He doesn't like talking about it and when his turtle he had since childhood past away he cried his heart out. Like I said earlier I loved reading behind Marcus's point of view just a little bit more than Lena's mainly because he's an underdog. He's the black sheep in his family, he's not an athlete like the rest of his family. So it was awesome watching his character grow and become more confident, confident enough to confront his father and I loved it! Lena's character grew too and I'm excited to see how much in the sequel. I'm super excited for the sequel, I need it like now!! I loved how this accident of switching powers actually helped the characters, especially with Marcus not being able to handle death. At the end of it and when he had to do the one thing he didn't want to do (that was such a heartbreaking scene! The feels people, the feels!), he understood that as a reaper he isn't killing anyone but helping their ready souls have an easier passing. Overall I absolutely enjoyed this book! I couldn't get enough! I really liked these two characters, opposites really do attract! I loved how they were able to help each other and loved how the characters developed. Again I'm super excited for the sequel! This was such a sweet and cute read, I couldn't help but smile as I read it. Sometimes I couldn't help but laugh out loud while reading it too!

Marcus has a crush on Lena and Lena wants to cross her first kiss off her list. As they kiss they both feel an electric pulse go through them. Both walk away with a big smile. Marcus believes that maybe finally Lena will like him back. However that kiss causes all sorts of problems. Lena has a secret. She is a soul collector and somehow her powers go crazy. Instead of collecting a soul, she makes the person fall in love. She is shocked and very worried about the consequences. Marcus also has a secret. He is a matchmaker and his powers aren’t working right either. It turns out they switched powers when they kissed. Their boss, Eddie, is trying to figure out what is going on. In the meantime they try not to use them. It is difficult for both of them. Lena doesn’t believe love exists and Marcus fears death. They are trying anything they can think of to make things right even facing the things they are running from. This was an interesting YA story. Both characters bring a lot of issues to the table from the beginning. Both are dealing with unhappy home lives. Lena’s mom left her and her dad. Marcus feels like he will never measure up. They needed to come to terms with their fears in order to move on. The author created a unique situation to make them step out of their comfort zone with twist of the paranormal world. The author did a great job of throwing relatable situations that the reader can identify with. There is bullying, parental dating, sibling rivalry, disappointments that life throws you, love, and of course death. It was all wrapped up in this neat little package. I’m glad that Lena wised up. She was so adamant that love didn’t exist that it saddened me how close-minded she was. So in the beginning I really didn’t care for her character. She changed my mind by the end. I give the book a 3 out of 5.

Twisting together the myths of Cupid and the Grim Reaper works to great effect in this story, adding humor, several ‘oops’ moments and a wonderful developing friendship between our two protagonists. Lena is a reaper (yes – as in Grim) without the scythe or black cloak. She’s well-adjusted and comfortable in her life, well, as comfortable as anyone her age ever is… but she wants to be kissed before she turns 14. She’s not prone to faerie tale inspired romantic dreams: her family has given her a solid foundation of practicality that is seen in her approach to life, friends and her powers. She’s thoughtful, funny, practical and most of all, completely unaware of the crush that Marcus has. Marcus is a Cupid, or cupid-like: a supernatural matchmaker. He’s shy and quiet: a believer in the ‘magic’ of love, partly from his parents’ influence, a dynamic that is very different from Lena’s home. Marcus is completely adorable: he’s that awkwardly unsure boy: a touch tongue tied, and now learning to communicate with his new friend, Lena, the girl he shared a first kiss with. Anna Stanizewski uses twists, myth and solidly built characters to tell the story with humor and a sense of being there as the characters deal with all of the changes to their own lives as a first kiss turns into a monumental obstacle. With their powers switched and their understanding of the worlds they knew now changed, Lena and Marcus have a wonderful trajectory in their story, keeping readers ready for every new development. With an ending that just doesn’t quite answer all the questions, there are opportunities for more story to come. I’m curious to see where the next installment leads, and think this is a great summer read for ages 11 and up. I received an eARC copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
