“It’s weird, how you have no idea how far you’ve come until suddenly you can’t find the way back.” – 3/5 stars!
Attention! This book contains: monster cake, hashtags, swimming practice, Mean Girls, grilled cheese sandwiches, freckles, the Met steps and a Twitter war.
It was okay. The romance was okay, the characters were okay, the story was okay. For most of the things the story offers, I don’t have strong opinions:
- The romance was cute and cheesy, but I didn’t care much about it;
- The New York setting didn’t do much for me;
- The characters were likeable, but not very memorable and special in my opinion;
- I’m not the biggest fan of social media books, so… there’s also that.
I will say I liked how the story was developing and how complex it was – regarding the food and recipes – and stories like these make great books to read at the beach because of how light they are.
It’s still a cute romance, but I dare to say it is kind of an over-hyped book. I just didn’t connect and feel invested in it like I would like to be. Not a bad book, just okay.
