A Date with Darcy (Bookish Boyfriends #1) Reviews
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.
This was just such a relatable cute fluffy contemporary that was so amazing to read. I was highly anticipating this book and now I've read it, I'm so happy it didn't fall flat.
I’m an Indigo employee, and I received an advanced e-galley of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for my honest feedback.
Cute and fun, if not a little predictable.
This was a great, light romance - but I felt like most of the secondary characters weren’t well fleshed out, and the story felt a bit shallow and at times, predictable.
It was also a little frustrating because Merrilee was like the very definition of a manic pixie dream girl. She was a little *too* quirky, and her “ugh too bad ...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
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thank you, Abrams Books, for allowing me to read this extraordinary book!
“Boys are so much better in books.”
It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you haven't read this book yet, you need to. When I say that this book blew me away, I am not lying. I adored Bookish Boyfriends. It plastered a stupid grin on my face for 99.9% of the story. I connected with this book and the characters on ...more
Okay so my book club and I picked this book and I had originally been super excited for it because this is literally any romance reader's dream, but I'm not too sure how I'm feeling about it. It was good and cute - I don't know where I checked out though. Maybe I never checked into being completely invested? I don't know.
You know those books where you're reading the story but if you were to be experiencing it all in real life, it'd feel as though you were glossy-eyed and dazed the entire time? N ...more

DNF at 28% Seems to have combines Romeo And Juliet with Pride And Prejudice, but there's not mystery about which boy she will end up with if you know the books - clue's in the title. However I'm struggling, it's like trying to eat a piece of cake with too much sugar, you feel sick and you want to stop asap. Just too sickly. There's basically no plot whatsoever.
