Thursday, 3 March 2016
There was so much snow yesterday, but at least it's Thursday!

Book: Dear Emma

Author: Katie Heaney

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing

Genre: Contemporary, Romance

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Summary: Harriet, the author of her college newspaper's pseudonymous student advice column "Dear Emma," is great at telling others what to do, dispensing wisdom for the lovelorn and lonely on her Midwestern campus. Somehow, though, she can't take her own advice, especially after Keith, the guy she's dating, blows her off completely. When Harriet discovers that Keith has started seeing the beautiful and intimidating Remy, she wants to hate her. But she can't help warming to Remy, who soon writes to "Dear Emma" asking for romantic advice.

Now Harriet has the perfect opportunity to take revenge on the person who broke her heart. But as she begins to doubt her own motivations and presumably faultless guidance, she's forced to question how much she really knows about love, friendship and well-meaning advice.

Review: This was soooooooooooooo cuuuuutttttteeeeeeeee!!! (Yes, it was that cute.)

I loved the whole "advice column helping people" premise. I liked how the story progressed throughout the novel and how Harriet had to deal with the consequences of what she does. As a protagonist, I liked Harriet, as she was very relatable (she's a little older than the average YA protagonist, but still young enough that I think YA readers will like her too).

The book went by pretty quickly as it's a light and easy read with good pacing and good characters.

Overall, I would recommend Dear Emma if you're looking for a fun, quick read!
