Publisher's Summary

Frankie Rose is desperate for love. Or a relationship. Or just a date with a semi-normal person will do. It’s not that she hasn’t tried; her string of crazy dates are well-documented on her blog. So, inspired by her job at The Little Brunswick Street Bookshop, Frankie decides to take fate into her own hands and embarks on the ultimate love experiment. Her plan? Plant her favourite books on trains inscribed with her contact details in a bid to lure the sophisticated, charming and well-read man of her dreams. Enter Sunny, and one spontaneous kiss later, Frankie begins to fall for him. But there’s just one problem – Frankie is strictly a Jane Austen kind of gal, and Sunny is really into Young Adult. Like, really.

Story great, narrator less so.

I really enjoyed the story, though it did take me a bit of effort to get past the narrator. At first I couldn’t pick what she reminded me of. Then I realised that her voice and tone reminds me of Siri (of Apple IPhone fame). I then felt like the whole book was being narrated to me from my phone by Siri. It was quite off putting, which is unfortunate as the story was an enjoyable one.

Liked the idea more than the story

I liked the book references, will take note to read some of them. I liked the idea of the book experiment as the story plot, but it didn't have as much a role in the story as I'd hoped. I wasn't a fan of the Sunny character.

A unique book

What I enjoyed the most about this book was looking up all the authors and other books. I am happy to say that more than half I have read and I look forward to reading the rest. Go Young Adults books, you are making an impact and I am proud to read them all.

Light and very much enjoyable

This book was just what I needed: light entertainment with a one-two punch. Humourous, relatable and engaging. I had to finish it over the course of 24 hours.
