The Romantics by Leah Konen

4/5 stars

Official Synopsis:

Gael Brennan is about to have his heart broken when his first big relationship crumbles on the heels of his parents’ painful separation. Love intervenes with the intention of setting things right—but she doesn’t anticipate the intrusion of her dreaded nemesis: the Rebound. Love’s plans for Gael are sidetracked by Cara, Gael’s hot-sauce-wielding “dream girl.” The more Love meddles, the further Gael drifts from the one girl who can help him mend his heart. Soon Love starts breaking all her own rules—and in order to set Gael’s fate back on course, she has to make some tough decisions about what it means to truly care.

My thoughts:

OH MAN. I am a SUCKER for cupid like characters and Love is just so darn cute in this one. The Romantics follows Love on her attempts to point Gael in the right direction after his first big break up.

This book was absolutely adorable and incredibly sweet. The narration was HILARIOUS and I found myself wishing that this book could have been a bit longer! I didn’t want to leave the characters!

If you are in the mood for a light coming of age book, this is exactly what you’re looking for. I will definitely be recommending this book to all of my friends! It might be my new go-to book to pull me out of reading slumps!

Okay, I couldn’t not add this litte cutie by Rebecca Sugar 

  • me:so starkiller base is a small, snow covered planet orbiting tightly to a pretty large star
  • jj:correct
  • me:but it's covered in snow
  • jj:...yes
  • me:but like the whole planet is covered in snow. and it doesn't have seasons? it doesn't have an equator? does it get hot? when the band around the middle is carved out, does that change the velocity of the planet? the seasons it has? wouldn't the snow melt when starkiller is being charged and fill the carved part with water? there's oxygen on this planet because they fight on the surface, so it has an atmosphere? a magnetic field? how do the trees stay green and alive if there are no seasons? are there animals? rivers? mountains? what about the watershed system on starkiller? when is it spring?
  • jj:you know... the movie is more about-
  • me:if the entire core of the planet is carved out to be filled with energy from the sun, how does it spin? how did the first order carve out the entire core of a planet? with out a metal core, the magnetic field is gone, throwing off the orbit, and exposing the entire base to harmful radiation-
  • jj:uh...
  • bill nye:nice
  • neil degrasse tyson:nice
