A DATE WITH DARCY, BOOKISH BOYFRIENDS #1, by Tiffany Schmidt, Amulet Books/Abrams Books, Hachette Book Group


In this contemporary YA, a teenager’s favorite literary heroes woo her in real life

The first of two books in an intended paperback original series about a girl whose classic literary crushes manifest in real life. Merrilee Campbell, 16, thinks boys are better in books, chivalry is dead, and there’d be nothing more romantic than having just one guy woo her like the heroes in classic stories. She’s about to get the chance to test these daydreams when she, her best friend, Eliza, and her younger sister, Rory, transfer into Reginald R. Hero High, where all their fantasies come true—often with surprising consequences.

Out May 2018

I received this uncorrected proof in exchange for my honest review.

Okay… I hate Monroe… yup, he’s a jerk–the epitome of what women should avoid in life!

I’m not a romance book lover… I need to get that out of the way first.  However… yup there is one… this book was a lot of fun because of the classics’ references.(And other things-wink, wink, nudge, nudge!)

I have to admit, I was more intrigued by that connection than anything else.  However… yup another one, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying this book.

The author’s writing style had a lot to do with it, I think.  Her voice was fun, at times the writing was hilarious, cute and enjoyable and her character arcs, realistic and desirable. It was an easy-read with a pace that moved along at a steady rate.  The MC developed nicely and reached her goals successfully.

Overall, it was a great read and I am glad I received the ARC.

I gave this book:
