Two book reviews in one week? Ya girl is on fire. I feel like Katniss twirling in her gown.
Title: It Only Happens in the Movies
Author: Holly Bourne
Genre: YA Contemporary
Oh look. My heart lying on the floor. Bleeding out. This! I. Can’t. Even. Put it into words how I am feeling right now. *sobbing* I am seriously crying while typing this.
I went into this thinking I would know what would happen but really I had no clue. The last 50 pages I was left with rage,sorrow, happiness, understanding. It’s amazing how a YA contemporary can make you feel so many emotions. Once I read the summary for this I knew I had to have it. I knew I would love it. It only happens in the movies is pretty self explanatory for a quick look into the plot. Specifically romance movies. Things are never like the movies. How true Holly, how true.
I despised some of the characters. You will too if you read this. I wanted to catch their car on fire and watch it burn. I was fuming with some things that were done and said. I don’t think I have ever disliked characters so much. But it needed to be that way. I connected. I truly connected with the main character, Audrey. I felt what she felt. I loved her character because she was so realistic. Harry was another to connect with easily. There are some questions left unanswered with him for me. He stole a piece of my heart and I can’t seem to give it back.
The romance. Oh the romance. Isn’t this the main point of the book? It is but it is so much more than that. I got romance in different ways. In different points and views. It felt really real to me. I don’t want to spoil anything so I can’t spill as much as I’d like. The ending left me satisfied though.
I will definitely be reading more Holly Bourne books!!
