From the author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love, a laugh-out-loud story of love, new friendships, and one unique food truck.Clara Shin lives for pranks and disruption. When she takes one joke too far, her dad sentences her to a summer working on his food truck, the KoBra, alongside her uptight classmate Rose Carver. Not the carefree summer Clara had imagined. But maybe Rose isn't so bad. Maybe the boy named Hamlet (yes, Hamlet) crushing on her is pretty cute. Maybe Clara actually feels invested in her dads business. What if taking this summer seriously means that Clara has to leave her old self behind? With Maurene Goo's signature warmth and humor, The Way You Make Me Feel is a relatable story of falling in love and finding yourself in the places youd never thought to look....

The Way You Make Me Feel Reviews
This is everything I love about contemporary YA and look for in a summer read. It's like an adorable love note to LA, food, and families that ends with the most beautiful messages. Basically, it's one of those feel-good reads that's in no way forced or super cheesy (yay).
Clara starts out the story as the class clown who treats everything like a joke as a way to separate herself from "feeling the real stuff." She gets into a fight at prom with Rose, a girl she despises for trying too hard/caring ...more
Full review in my book blog.
Thanks to the publisher at Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book for free in exchange for an honest review
The Way You Make Me Feel is an incredibly good and adorable read, full of yummy food descriptions, and it should definitely be on your summer TBR.
I didn’t have very high expectations going into this book, since I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Goo’s previous book, was a 3-star read for me. This book sounded a bit more exciting (I love it when books have food-related elements) but I definitely didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. I was sucked into the book from the start, and finished it i ...more
I got sucked in by that cover and the synopsis and couldn’t wait to get to it.
I liked Clara. She’s quite an interesting character. She’s snarky and maybe a little rude, but there’s a lot of potential. I really enjoyed reading her grow from a bratty teenager to someone who knows themselves a bit better and is ready to make changes. Rose and Hamlet were the perfect complements for Clara and the scenes with the three of them together were fun. Hands down, Clara’s dad Adrian was the best.
Plot wise ...more
you can be as diverse as you like but if you’re going to be ignorant towards a religion mmm no
ARC received from NetGalley for an honest review
DNF - 10%
Sorry, Clara is too much of a brat to me and I just couldn't like her character. I'm one of those people that has to like the character in order to like the book. The prom scene just did me in, it was too much, too... I don't even have words, I just thought it was stupid. I wish we could've followed Rose as I actually liked her a lot and would've kept reading if we had been following her.
As always, I don't star DNFs because I feel that's ...more
Maurene captured my half-Korean heart with her sophomore novel, I Believe in a Thing Called Love, so there was no question I was eager for The Way You Make Me Feel. I even posted about the cover reveal a few months ago, and have been eager and hopeful for an ARC of some kind.
Well, the book gods have surely blessed me because I’m thrilled to be a part of this book’s blog tour! You can read my full review here and also enter for a chance to win a hardcover copy. The giveaway is international and e ...more
First of all, how gorgeous is this cover? Second, this was genuinely one of the most heartwarming novels I have read in a very long time, and I hope that every YA contemporary fan will pick it up and give it a shot!
I hated when my dad gendered the stupid truck. To retaliate, I called my boobs Brock and Chad, which my dad hated with equal fervor.
First of all, Clara is absolutely hilarious. She’s so awkward, and cynical, and weird, and her sense of humor is so similar to the way mine was at that ...more
