Thank you Simon & Schuster Canada for gifting me an ARC in exchange for an honest review!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets Save the Date in this sweet and hijinks-filled rom-com about a teen girl who will do whatever it takes to find a date for her sister’s wedding.
Mia’s friends love rom-coms. Mia hates them. They’re silly, contrived, and not at all realistic. Besides, there are more important things to worry about—like how to handle living with her bridezilla sister, Sam, who’s never appreciated Mia, and surviving junior year juggling every school club offered and acing all of her classes.
So when Mia is tasked with finding a date to her sister’s wedding, her options are practically nonexistent.
Mia’s friends, however, have an idea. It’s a little crazy, a little out there, and a lot inspired by the movies they love that Mia begrudgingly watches too.
Mia just needs a meet-cute.
I swear to god if this got me into a slump I-
I haven’t felt like this since A Deal with the Elf King
altho it hasn’t even been that long but this was a struggle.😣😭
Mia Hubbard is just your regular junior dealing with the stress of high school, while also being a competitive swimmer and hating rom-coms & romance (in general) with a passion .
But when her older sister, Sam, orders Mia to find a date to her upcoming wedding . . . well, now Mia is on the hunt for someone to go with and what better way to find one then to do a meet-cute? (of course her friends thought of that)
So it starts. The many meet-cutes that are set up between Mia and some other random guys. And of course the ✨drama✨.
Honestly, this probably wasn’t as bad as I make it sound and it was definitely a “me” thing, but I was very, very bored.😢 I usually enjoy contemporaries such as this, but I couldn’t really care that much about Mia and the rest of the cast.
And again, the romance was meh. I didn’t like the love interest, or more like . . . I didn’t care at all about him. He didn’t even appear that much compared to the other boys in the meet-cutes, which is funny bc you’d think Mia and him would have lots of encounters. Oh well.😕
Also, I did NOT see at all how this was a “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets Save the Date” . I haven’t read ‘Save the Date’, so I don’t know about that but “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”??? Howww??? I don’t see how this in any way shape or form was related to that. * confusion *
But I did love the diversity in this book! Definitely give this a try if you love rom-coms, a large cast of diverse characters, and the strong bond between family and friends.
