Jasper and Spice: "There is this thing with this novel, where within the first couple pages of a character’s existence, I fell completely and utterly in love with them, their quirks and relationship with others….Even if [the novel] did break my heart at the start, it was whole again by the end."
Goodreads Reviewer loves The Astrid Notes: "Heaps of emotion. Brilliant voice. Perfect." FIVE STAR!
Instagram Reviewer (_bookworm94_) "Astrid and Jacob. Within the first two chapters they had my full attention and heart...this was a five star read for me."
Goodreads Reviewer, talking about The Astrid Notes, says: "A beautifully written story of two souls bound by privilege and troubled by past (and recent) events! There are three main elements that I absolutely fell in love with while reading Bashford’s The Astrid Notes: The tragic backstories, the dual perspectives and the allusion of music."
Brooklyn the Bookword Blog: "I cannot recommend this book enough! It’s just got so much heart and soul poured into it, and coupled with the theme of music throughout and self discovery and not giving in or up, this makes for wholly remarkable and memorable reading!"
