    One thought on “The Chaos of Standing Still”

    1. Trying to decide how to review this book so I'm going with 3 stars for now. It was well-written and explores many issues -- but I'm just not sure I loved the book. Just because there is grief and loss and other heavy issues doesn't mean the book was "good" I mean I think I enjoyed it? But also not really? I had a hard time connecting with Ryn. Which made me feel bad because she is a girl that is struggling to grieve for her best friend. But I just didn't connect with her. Or like her. I probably [...]

    2. ***Actual rating: 3/5 R(V)eginald Stars***If Lottie hadn’t died, I never would have known Xander.The Chaos of Standing Still is mainly about how Ryn learns to move on after her best friend, Lottie, died in a car accident one year ago. Long story short, Ryn was stuck in Denver International Airport due to a blizzard and she accidentally bumped into a guy named Xander when she tripped over her own feet while googling frantically on her phone. That was how the story began.Throughout the book, I [...]

    3. I looooooove 24 hour time frame books. They’re frustrating and fantastic and I was beyond excited to see that Jessica’s book was all about one day. And it didn’t disappoint. Love love love Ryn and Xander. She’s so deep in grief, it’s almost like she’s drowning. Xander is fun and flirty. Together they’re both going through stuff and it was captivating to see how they worked it out. Of course there were some sweet swoons and laughs and they’re sprinkled through at the best moments. [...]

    4. The Chaos of Standing still drew me in right from the start. It is the story of a girl stranded in an airport, but with a twist. There are so many interesting side characters and some super cute moments throughout the book. While I enjoyed the story, I found the constant interruptions for flashbacks to get annoying, and I wish I could have enjoyed it more.This book is cute, funny, and heart-wrenching all at once. It tells the story of a girl stranded in an airport on New Year’s Eve, which also [...]

    5. 4 stars“Any system, if left unattended or isolated, will eventually result in entropy. Or chaos.”I was in the mood for a contemporary reading and as I was pondering, it started to snow here in Texas. Texas, of all places! It just so happens I bought The Chaos of Standing Still a week ago and the book is set in winter so it all played out in the end.This is my first book by Jessica Brody and I'm impressed so far. It's a nice, sorta-cute novel about grief, loss, and acceptance with shenanigans [...]

    6. As my first book by Brody, I had no idea how it was going to be. I just didn't expect to like it so much.Ryn lost her best friend almost a year ago and still hasn't found the right way to grieve. Instead, she holds on the one unread message in her phone and keeps searching for answers to every random question that pops up into her head. Stranded at the Denver Airport during a snow storm on the day before the first anniversary, she meets Xander and a parade of unique people. They seem to get the [...]

    8. “Any system, if left unattended or isolated, will eventually result in entropy. Or chaos.”This is the holiday contemporary you should reach for if you want more than just an adorable romance. Don’t get me wrong, it’s got that too, but The Chaos of Standing Still is all about friendship and healing and learning to move on when you’re desperately holding onto the past. The snowed-in airport was the perfect setting for the story, and we got to meet a lot of interesting characters. While t [...]

    9. I'm kind of surprised how much I liked this book and how much it made me feel. The whole book takes place in one day, but there are flashbacks. But so much happens in that single day.Ryn hasn't been able to live a happy life since her best friend, Lottie, died almost one year ago. Ryn is flying home and needs to be there before 10:05 am, the time Lottie was killed. But the Denver weather had other ideas and she is stuck at the airport with no where to go.Xander is heading to visit his parents in [...]

    10. Full review coming soon I mean it. Actually, a lot of new reviews coming soon. This week I will be catching up!

    11. You can find this review and others at arctic booksI went into this book with pretty high expectations because I adored the synopsis and the cover. Thankfully, I was not disappointed. I adored this contemporary romance standalone, and I look forward to reading Jessica Brody’s next works!THE CHAOS OF STANDING STILL follows Ryn as she is stranded at an airport. She meets a boy named Xander and tries to come in terms with the death of her best friend, Lottie. The concurrence of flashbacks of Lott [...]

    12. Jessica Brody is one of my insta-buy young adult authors, right up there with Sarah Dessen, Meg Cabot, and Richelle Mead. Her books always succeed in impressing me, no matter the story lines and characters introduced. Case in point: A Week of Mondays, 52 Reasons to Hate My Father, The Karma Club, My Life Undecided, and The Fidelity Files. Therefore, when I heard about The Chaos of Standing Still, her latest YA, I instantly added it to my TBR pile. The storyline sounded great, the setting sounded [...]

    13. Check out this, other reviews, and more fun bookish things on my young adult book blog, Here's to Happy Endings!I haven't read a lot of books by Jessica Brody - while I have quite a few of the ones that she has written so far, the only one that I have actually gotten around to reading was Addie Bell's Shortcut to Growing Up. I thought that was a really cute book for both middle graders, young adults, and adults who enjoy young adult and middle grade (like me!). So I had really high hopes for The [...]

    14. I didn't realize how much I needed this book until I stayed up until 2 AM reading it. I needed to see on the page that sometimes people don't think you're crazy even if you do crazy things. I needed Ryn. And I needed Xander. I needed them and I loved them.I think my favorite part of this book, though, is that no one leaves the airport throughout the whole thing. Life goes on eventually, but the book keeps them at the airport for the entirety of the story. I liked that. I liked wondering about th [...]

    15. Ryn lost her best friend almost a year ago and she isn't coping well in the aftermath. After being stranded at the Denver Airport due to a raging blizzard, she spends twenty-four hours before the one day anniversary of Lottie's death reminiscing the past, falling in love, finding new friends, and discovering that there is hope in moving on.At first I felt sorry for Ryn losing her best friend, but then during flashbacks we meet Lottie, and that made me wonder why Ryn was friends with her in the f [...]

    16. I. LOVED. THIS. Absolutely adored everything about this. I was annoyed at things at first but the more I continued to reading it the more attached I grew to everyone. I loved Xander (I also very much appreciated his name) and Ryn was so troubled from the beginning and watching her come to terms with the events of her life was so emotional.So I read this and it had just started snowing heavily here in Ontario which was so fitting for the tone and setting of this book - it was just meant to be.I f [...]

    17. I honestly can’t believe how quickly I devoured The Chaos of Standing Still. This was one of those reads that I picked up and was immediately sucked into the story. This is a heartfelt contemporary that deals with friendships, loss, mourning and trying to find your way back.How do you manage your life after losing your person? Ryn has lost Lottie, her best friend since childhood and she deals the best way she knows how. She avoids people, connecting, the truth and reading that one last message [...]

    18. I loved this book, and the possibility of a story like Xander and Ryns. Such a cute story that showcased the importance of taking new chances, trusting yourself and learning to let go. Sometimes a stranger needs you just as much as you need them, and this book tells that story better than any other. A long book, but worth every minute of reading :)

    19. I am completely in love with this book and these characters. Jessica is an incredibly gifted writer. This beautiful story is equal parts funny and heartbreaking.Full review to come

    20. The first discovered Jessica Brody with 52 Reasons to Hate My Father. She immediately had my intention and I really wanted to read everything she wrote but I quickly found out that perhaps everything she wrote wasn’t for me. Which is unfortunate because I really enjoyed her writing style. But then I came The Chaos of Standing Still, a book that demanded my attention.At 403 pages The Chaos of Standing Still is not a short book but don’t let it fool you. Those 403 pages FLY BY. There are books [...]

    21. What a fantastic, heartwarming, rom-com book. I saw this on the silver screen, it was a movie in my head, you know, starring Olivia Holt and Tyrel Jackson Williams or other Disney/young actors. I would love a good movie set in DIA!Not gonna lie, I LOVED all of the Denver references. As a kid who grew up going to DIA--calling it my airport--I was stoked to have a clear picture of all of the scenery and setting and the conspiracy theories. I knew every painting and section that was mentioned. All [...]

    22. Picture the blizzard of the century stranding you in an airport rife with conspiracy on New Year's Eve.Sounds pretty entertaining, right?This novel has a wonderful balance of all those adventure-inducing shenanigans coupled with the impending anniversary of our main character's best friend's death. I really enjoyed the dual timeline between watching our main character, Ryn, growing up with her best friend, Lottie; and one year later, as Ryn struggles to deal with Lottie's death. As is typical of [...]

    23. Rating: 3.5 StarsThe Second Law of Thermodynamics states that the entropy is always increasing, or in other words, we are always tending towards chaos. This was what came to my mind, as I considered the main character of this book, Ryn, and the title of this book. Ryn was stuck. She couldn't move on after the death of her best friend, and as she continually tried to keep her grief under control, she slowly started to unravel, thus moving towards more chaos.I have to confess, I am a lover of grie [...]

It's a really heartbreaking book but it will also made you heart warm,because i [...]

    25. Not gonna lie, I was pretty nervous getting on this book. I've read the Unremembered trilogy by Jessica Brody and I liked it but this one has different premise altogether. Turned out, I really don't have to worry 'cause I liked her writing style in this book as much as I did back then. Her writing was so easy read.I like how the protagonist of this book was written with raw emotion, her sentiment radiated through the pages straight to the reader. I had a hard time connecting with Ryn, though. Af [...]

    26. My heart holds a special place for books about grief, loss, and coping, and The Chaos of Standing Still did not disappoint in making me cry and laugh. This book focuses more on the coping aspects of grief and all the chaos that encompasses that helpless feeling. Many times I found this story heartbreaking, but the ending is like a breath of fresh air and a warm hug filled with hope.In regards to the main character, I oftentimes found Ryn to be very stubborn. She is stagnant in her grief of losin [...]
