Foolish Hearts, by Emma Mills

Publish Date: December 5, 2017
Published by: Henry Holt and Co.
Pages: 320
Genre: YA Contemporary/Romance
My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.5 out of 5 stars)


Synopsis:

When Claudia accidentally eavesdrops on the epic breakup of Paige and Iris, the it-couple at her school, she finds herself in hot water with prickly, difficult Iris. Thrown together against their will in the class production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, along with the goofiest, cutest boy Claudia has ever known, Iris and Claudia are in for an eye-opening senior year.


My Review:

This was an absolute doll of a book. It made me laugh so much and I loved it.

Book Box

An unboxing (ShelfLoveCrate)

I am going to post an unboxing here for the ShelfLoveCrate for July 2017.  ShelfLoveCrate is a subscription box company whose themes usually focus on YA fantasy and sci-fi.  I’ve been subscribed to them since their first box (which I almost missed out on but luckily got when they had extras go on sale), and so far not a single one has been disappointing!!  The packaging it beautiful, with the inside lid saying “Your magical journey starts now…” and they tie everything up under tissue paper and string and it’s so, well, magical!!

So, this month’s theme was “Shakespeare’s Mystery Town.”  I kind of knew what the book was going to be because I had an egalley of it (and actually read it last month), so I was definitely excited for this box!  I’ve actually been on a Shakespeare kick lately – I recently read Much Ado About Nothing and Twelfth Night – so I knew I was going to be pleasantly surprised.

Alright, spoilers ahead so stop reading now if you don’t want any.
