A Date with Darcy (Bookish Boyfriends #1) Reviews
you tryna tell me that she's read all the classics and the 1 (one) couple out of all those books whose love story she wants to emulate is flipping Romeo and Juliet
A book about bookish boyfriends that is called Bookish Boyfriends which will probably include a bookish boyfriend to add to an ever-growing list of my bookish boyfriends and that enables me to use the phrase 'Bookish Boyfriends' as often in one sentence as I just did and also has a reference to one of the most classic bookish boyfriends (Mr. Darcy) on the cover?
Sign me up.
And yes, it took me an absurd amount of time to figure out the logistics of that sentence. You're welcome.

I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
As far as sixteen year-old Merrilee is concerned, boys in books are much better than boys in real life. What she wouldn't give to have a real boy sweep her off of her feet into a whirlwind romance like her favorite book boyfriends. She's about to get the chance of a lifetime when she, her best friend, and her sister start at a prestigious new high school, but things don't always turn out the same way for her as they do for her fav ...more
This was a very cute, light read! Although I did find it kind of boring at times, and the first half of the book definitely lacked the substance I was hoping for. I feel like in the beginning the protagonist lacked something and that made it hard to connect with her and the story. However the second half of the book took a turn and I very much loved it. Before requesting this title on NetGalley I was very intrigued because - A book about a girl who loves books? Sign me up for that anytime. So yo ...more
ARC received from the publisher via Netgalley for a fair review
When Merilee transfers from an all girls school to Reginald R. Hero High she thinks it just might be the place she might meet her personal hero. That is, if they can live up to all the bookish boyfriends she's forever dreaming about. Having herself surrounded by actual Romeo's it seems that Merilee might just be living out one of her favorite love stories of all time.
Okay, so I was really thrown by this book. Initially when ...more
If ever I've related more to a character in a YA novel, that character would have to be Merrilee. Never have I laughed and smiled my way through a story so much, simply because I got it. I could feel it because in some ways, I've lived it, maybe not as an adult but definitely as a teenager.
Merrilee is my book character soul mate. She understands it, romance, books, boys, and all.
It's been a long time since I wanted to stay up into the wee hours of the morning reading a YA book but this book ch ...more
Thank you to Netgalley, Tiffany Schmidt and the publisher for my ARC of Bookish Boyfriends.
I really loved the synopsis of this book, a 15 year old bookworm goes to a new school and discovers it is full of the hero's and heartthrobs of her favourite classic novels. On the way, she discovers herself as well.
Unfortunately, for me, I DNF'd this book at 30% I just couldn't seem to get on with it. I found the character of Merilee too dreamy and almost childish, while Eliza her best friend seemed sel ...more
